The Weirdest Media Spin Yet for Obama


Don Surber
The day after a largely black audience walked out on him in Maryland, President Obama went on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show in an effort to get black people to like him again.
 Yes folks, Obama has fallen that low.
 Sharpton asked him why he is supporting all these white folks who are running from him.
 From the president: “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress. So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them -- I said, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.”
 Obama’s handmaidens in the press immediately cringed, with the Washington Post headlining its report: “Obama giftwraps another sound bite for Republicans.
Aaron Blake wrote:
"While Obama’s previous comment suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him, these comments suggest not only that, but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him -- something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case.
 Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public.
 At the same time, he’s really only saying something that most political observers already believe to be true -- that however much distance these Democrats are seeking from the president, they will generally be on-board with his agenda. Almost all Democrats in Congress, after all, vote with their party the vast majority of the time."
 You see, the problem is not his incompetence or the dishonesty of Democrats who say one thing but will do another -- such hypocrisy is accepted by the Washington Post when a Democrat shows two faces. No the problem is Republicans will sound bite the president.
 Oh noes!
Readers must admit this is the weirdest spin yet in 10 years of spinning for this empty suit, beginning with his over-rated speech at the 2004 DNC convention.

Panic Mode

Democrats Shuffle Their Deck of Race Cards
Ricohet
"Faced with a deeply unpopular President and a potential GOP wave, Democrats are digging deep to motivate their lackadaisical base. As always, the most prominent play is the race card.
In North Carolina, fans of incumbent Senator Kay Hagan are passing out disturbing fliers in African-American neighborhoods. “Kay Hagan Doesn’t WIN! Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Will Begin! Vote in 2014” says the text, which is printed over a photo of a white crowd lynching a black man."
"The local chapter of the NAACP doesn’t see a problem with the flier. President of the Fayetteville chapter, James Buxton, told the Observer, “That’s what the community feels. That if the Senate is taken over by the Republicans, and it remains the Republicans (in the majority) in the House of Representatives, they’re going to impeach him.”
County Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Devore saw things a little differently, saying, “I think it’s unfortunate to use this kind of emotion as a means to getting people out to vote. It’s bad information.”
The Fayetteville police are looking into the matter as “hate materials,” and expect federal authorities to be involved as they view the flier as an implied threat against the president.
If conservatives want to set the record straight, the GOP should reprint the lynching photo with the headline, “Remember When North Carolina Was Run by White Democrats? Vote Republican!” 

But that's not all, this from Judicial Watch:

NAACP: Create Confusion By Deliberately Misleading Voters
"According to a letter from a lawyer for the State of North Carolina to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina urged audience members to mislead the NAACP’s own members into believing they do not need to register to vote in advance, or that they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place. Why? The letter alleges: To create confusion and animosity during the upcoming mid-term elections in North Carolina, and to use the evidence of that confusion in the ongoing litigation between Eric Holder’s Justice Department and North Carolina and to show that North Carolina’s election integrity laws are discriminatory."

President Pinball: Inept and Incompetent

by Robert Janicki

Pinball is a completely reactionary endeavor. The player, in order to win at some level, must rapidly react to constantly changing events on each and every pinball played, until it no longer is in play.  Unfortunately, our Pinball President doesn't have the necessary skill set to react in a timely fashion to the many changing real world circumstances, which seemingly appear everyday, whether they are on the domestic scene or across the globe in our foreign relations policy challenges.  Unfortunately for America and the world, President Pinball has not been up to meet these wide ranging challenges.

What's worse is that President Pinball's dithering reduces the options available to him.  In a rapidly changing environment, time is of the essence.  Dithering and delaying in hopes of a situation resolving itself, is simply a recipe for disaster.  It's like the hope in "Hope and Change".  Hope is not and never has been a strategy for success in anything.  America's enemies do not wait for a response from President Pinball.  They have a strategic action vision and plan before them with various operational tactical plans to immediately initiate depending upon the circumstances that present themselves.

As has been alluded to in the past, President Pinball is playing checkers while our enemies are playing chess.  It's a mismatch that can never catch up, let alone win the game of freedom vs. tyranny on the world stage.  President Pinball is playing a game that will only draw out the hostilities we see daily in Syria and Iraq, rather than resolving them while protecting millions of innocent civilians.  Essentially, President Pinball has told the world that Syria and Iraq are not the problem of the U.S., but rather the problem of the local parties on the ground in these affect areas.

This is so typical of President Pinball.  When he can't handle the heat in the kitchen, he simply declares that the kitchen is not his problem.  In a globally connected world community, this is just another marker that illuminates to the world that President Pinball is ineffective as the leader of the free world and not to be trusted as an ally.

President Pinball came into office promising to bring the world together.  The reality is that the world is now far more unstable and divided than when the president took office.  The decline in world stability and security is not just some mere happenstance.  President Pinball's feckless leadership has created a vacuum in foreign relations and our enemies have taken this opportunity to advance the dark forces under their command, including the savage barbarians of Islam, as they occupy significant portions of Syria and Iraq.

President Pinball has told our enemies what he will not do, rather than going about the business of attacking our enemies on all fronts with all means possible.  It was Teddy Roosevelt that said, "Speak softly, but carry a big stick".  President Pinball refuses to carry a big stick and sends hollow threats to our enemies.  As the U.S. and it allies conduct air strikes against ISIS, it should be noted that ISIS has constantly been evolving in its tactical response to these air strikes.  Meanwhile President Pinball has pinned his hopes on continuing to exercise a limited military air option, essentially by remote control, without benefit of having the tactical eyes in the field to provide precise guidance for military air strikes.

As a military strategist and tactician, President Pinball has all the skills of a community activist to bring to bear, which is to say, none at all.

Words of a Political Genius

Obama: I'm Confused Here......

While on a fund-raising trip, the president took time Monday morning to vote early in his home district Chicago. Obama seemed confused at the whole process and required a bit of help from polling volunteers before filling out his ballot.

The President having trouble casting his 27 votes for US Senator before poll volunteers realized he was on a Republican Voting Machine, which are not plugged in.....

The White House's Ebola Messaging Problem

 "Much public skepticism about the governments response to Ebola stems from the dogmatic pronouncements of Obama administration officials. In a video message early last month on stopping the virus, for example, President Obama asserted that 'we know how to do it.' He was wrong. 
To fix his messaging problem, President Obama has appointed political fixer Ron Klain as its new Ebola response 'czar.' Mr. Klain's most significant contribution to public-health spin control came when he was Vice President Joe Biden's chief of staff during one of the worst public-health communications missteps of recent memory. 
During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, Mr. Biden said on NBCs 'Today' show that 'I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now.' The White House press office scrambled to walk back Mr. Bidens words, which threatened to disrupt public transportation and air travel." — Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Former FDA Deputy Commissioner

Outgoing Democrat Sticks It To His Own Party


by Robert Janicki

In a perverse way, you have to love Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa).  Harkin, a liar and all around mean spirited human being, has managed to stick it to his own party on his way out of the senate as he retires on January 3, 2015, with the new congressional term.

"Retiring Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, has angered his fellow Democrats by keeping the nearly $2.4 million in his personal campaign account rather than donating it to the campaign of Bruce Braley, the party's nominee to succeed him.
Harkin, who is retiring after five terms in office, plans to instead donate most of the funds to Drake University to help create a political institute in his own name...."
A couple of things about Harkin stand out in my memory.  The most egregious was Harkin's claim that he was a combat pilot during the Vietnam War.  The fact is that Harking ferried in aircraft from Japan to Vietnam.  He never saw combat.  That's what I call an "act of stolen valor", trying to ride the coattails of those who actually flew and put their lives at risk in combat air missions over Vietnam.

Another act of Harkin's was purely political and involved ridiculous pork barrel spending.  Harkin entered a bill costing several million dollars to create an indoor jungle in Iowa to study tropical agriculture.  How this would equate to Iowa agriculture never was explained, but it would have had Harkin's name on it.

Harkin's withholding his campaign war chest to donate to Drake University is Harkin's last egotistical act to burnish his name and reputation in Iowa.  Although Harkin may have campaigned and held fundraisers for Senate Democrat candidate Bruce Braley, Harkin's campaign war chest might be what it would take for Braley to defeat feisty and talented Senate Republican candidate Joni Ernst.  

Braley is cut from the same cloth as Harkin, in that he will do or say anything to smear his opponent.  Like Harkin, Braley has an ego as large as all outdoors.  Unfortunately for Iowans, Braley's talent in no way matches his inordinately overblown ego.

*Editors Note - We'll end with saying something nice - "Thanks Tom,  for helping turn Iowa Red."

Justice Ginsburg's Myopic View of the Law

Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg Pens Scathing Dissent
On Texas Voter ID Law

Early Saturday morning, Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg issued a six-page dissent  blasting the court's decision to allow Texas to use its new voter ID law in the November elections. She was joined in the dissenting opinion by........you guessed it......Ginsburg's inferior legal intellectual toadies, Justices Kagan and Sotomayor. 

Ginsburg argued that the Fifth Circuit was remiss to ignore the findings of a full trial in district court, which found that the law was "enacted with a racially discriminatory purpose and would yield a prohibited discriminatory result."
"The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters." 
"Senate Bill 14 may prevent more than 600,000 registered Texas voters (about 4.5% of all registered voters) from voting in person for lack of compliant identification. A sharply disproportionate percentage of those voters are African-American or Hispanic."
I'm amazed at the insufficient knowledge of the details of the Texas law she so abhors. One of 7 different ID's are approved for voting.  The law clearly states an approved picture ID will be issued by the state of Texas for voting proposes at no cost if the voter is disabled and of limited resources.   
"Based on the testimony and numerous statistical analyses provided at trial, the Court finds that approximately 608,470 registered voters in Texas, representing approximately 4.5% of all registered voters, lack qualified SB 14 ID and of these, 534,512 voters do not qualify for a disability exemption."
The bill authorizes voters who cannot provide identification to cast provisional ballots. It requires voters who cast provisional ballots because they do not meet identification requirements to provide photo identification within six days of the date of the election.

Many of the registered voters sighted in Ginsburg's dissent have signed their voter registrations at registration drives at grocery stores and gas stations giving name, age and address with no proof of who they really are. I'm watching this happen daily here where I live. And not once have I been approached to ask if I am registered. (Need I say who is?)

A Texas ID cost $16, and only $6 if over 60.
This is not a Poll Tax, It's a card to Prove Who You Are!!!!

Receipt for payment of poll tax, Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, 1917
(the $1 tax would be equal to $18.41 today)

I find it hard to believe (unless you are in the state illegally) that the people sighted in Ginsburg's decent, and by open voting proponents (primarily  African-American or Hispanic ) are not capable of securing at least one of the required pieces of ID. Is Justice Ginsburg's reasoning that they're not capable of carrying out a civic duty, or just to stupid to do so? These are primarily the same people who are receive government assistance which require proof of residency, who regularly use public transportation and seem to have money and means to purchase tobacco and liquor. But because they are black or  Hispanic they somehow can not acquire an ID? 

Justice Ginsburg believes  SB14 is about creating a burden on the right to vote, when in actuality, it's about guaranteeing the rightful legitimate vote of a citizen against fraudulent voting. Perhaps Justice Ginsburg should spend some time reading a little Texas history of the legendary voter fraud and political shenanigans of the very signer of the Voting Rights Act himself, Lyndon B. Johnson.

Ginsburg also pointedly added to her dissent: 
"racial discrimination in elections in Texas is no mere historical artifact. To the contrary, Texas has been found in violation of the Voting Rights Act in every redistricting cycle from and after 1970."
The very violations Justice Ginsburg sights are in part approved in principle by the very court in which she sits (and defended by a corrupt DOJ) in gerrymandering artificial minority districts for the purpose of creating a democrat majority in other states. But she doesn't seem to have much of a problem with that.

Change of Fodder for Late-Night Comics


"Something peculiar has happened. As I write, none of the Republican candidates for Senate has become a public embarrassment. On the contrary: For the first time in a decade, it is the Democratic candidates, not the Republican ones, who are fodder for late-night comics. That the Democrats are committing gaffes and causing scandals at a higher rate than Republicans not only may be decisive in the battle for the Senate. It could signal a change in our politics at large. ... 

"There is plenty of time for Republicans to have a Macaca moment. But right now, as of October 17, 2014, the Republican Senate candidates have performed better than they have in years. For the moment, today, as you read this, the Democratic candidates are the jokes.

"Savor it."  — Matthew Continetti, Washington Free Beacon
