Obama’s embark on 17-day Christmas “tradition”

December 15, 2013

Barack Obama and his family will ditch the cold and wet weather in Washington DC as they leave this Friday for a much needed 17-day Christmas vacation in Hawaii.

The Obama’s and their entourage traditionally spend the holiday break in a luxurious home on Oahu with spectacular ocean views. For the past three years, Obama rented a $24,500-per-week private, gated Plantation Estate, on the white sand beach of Castle Point Kailuana in KailuaBay.

White House Dossier reports that Michelle Obama revealed that she and Barack don’t give one another Christmas gifts. They merely say, “We’re in Hawaii,” and that’s Christmas gift enough. But actually the present is from taxpayers, and it’s an expensive one. Keith Koffler writes the total cost to taxpayers of Obama’s vacations to Hawaii since becoming president  — excluding the upcoming trip — “is likely in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more.”

Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the jet between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s decision to return to Hawaii amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.

Meanwhile, the national debt approaches $17.3 trillion — nearly $6 trillion of which was racked up in the first term of the Obama presidency –– a 50% increase on Obama‘s watch. View the ticking national debt clock and its impact on YOU.

The tone-deaf and egocentric Obama’s, who don’t even take a stab at feeling the pain affecting so many Americans, will depart Dec. 20, after what is expected to be a light work week. Not the White House blog has a satirical overview of the upcoming vacation. And if you’re having trouble with your holiday gift list, be sure to visit the White House Obama Store.

Knockout “games”: The underreported crime

December 6, 2013

Teen muggers brag, “It’s fun!”

After the shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin in March 2012, by a man the media immediately labeled a “white Hispanic,”  the President of the United States made a televised statement in which he personalized the victim, declaring, “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon.“

Barack Obama’s Justice Department and the FBI opened investigations into the death and a state grand jury was convened. In a glaring example of the racial underpinnings, the Sanford, Florida  Police Department “temporarily” replaced Bill Lee, the white chief, with a black appointee. Chief Lee, a 30-year law enforcement veteran, was later fired.

Speaking of Martin’s parents, Barack Obama said, “They are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

Yet the brutal crimes known as “knockout games,” mostly perpetrated by bands of black youth against random white and Orthodox Jewish victims, receives stony silence from the White House.

The “games” are characterized by surprise attacks with violent facial punches delivered to strangers — ranging from young students to elderly women and others simply going about their business, often leaving them crumpled unconscious on the sidewalk. (Video under link accompanies disturbing report from International Business Times.) At least seven victims have died.

Despite these facts, Laurie Cumbo, recently elected to represent Crown Heights on the New York City Council, released a disturbing open letter, complete with negative stereotypes about the “knockout games” earlier this week. For her skewed view, read this Truth Revolt report,“Too Many Jews: NYC Politician ‘Explains’ Racial Roots of Knockout Game.”

WND has reported on the vicious acts, and Fox News has covered the horrific crimes, but the liberal MSM has suppressed the violence.

Obama’s state-run media rivals Pravda

November 23, 2013

Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration will be the most open and transparent in the history of the country?

How times have changed. Now there’s a new supremacy move emanating from the Obama White House, limiting the right of the American people to get an independent view of the president while he’s conducting official business.

THIRTY-EIGHT of the nation’s largest news organizations have lodged a complaint against the White House for instituting troublesome new limitations on photojournalists covering the president. Access to important executive branch functions is being shut off so the White House can release its own ‘official’ video and photos. This is the letter* hand-delivered to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney protesting the restrictive new policies.

Laura Ingraham rightly defined it as Pravda-style propaganda. As the press has begun to turn a more critical eye on Obama and his policies, the White House has moved more aggressively to limit access and circumvent scrutiny. This is a far cry from what Barack Obama promised when he said “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”  At long last, the Obama-colluding mainstream media appears to be waking up — even if it’s five years too late.

The White House deceptively claims it is adding more transparency and access via its own official photographers and videographer. In fact, independent journalism is being replaced by paid White House staffers, who under the administration’s newly imposed limits on media access represent a troubling precedent with a direct and adverse impact on the public’s ability to independently monitor and see what its government is doing.

Oprah Winfrey: Old white people “just have to die”

November 21, 2013

Oprah Winfrey has become an American billionaire in large part because of white fans boosting her ratings, buying her books and attending her movies.

Yet while in the United Kingdom recently, she gave this interview (excerpted) on the BBC in which she not only said that President Obama is treated with disrespect because he’s black, but also that entire generations of racists are going to have to die for racism to end. Apparently Oprah has forgotten that Americans of all ethnic backgrounds twice put this man in the highest office in the United States.

“As long as there are people who still — there’s a whole generation – I say this, you know, I said this, you know, for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, community in the south — there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”

For her racist views, Obama rewarded the media mogul with the highest civilian honor — the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sixteen recipients were honored at the White House ceremony Wednesday.


Obamacare navigators show the fraud-filled way

November 15, 2013

James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a second investigative video showing Obamacare navigators in Texas counseling undercover reporters — posing as applicants — on how to engage in fraud to cheat the taxpayer-funded health care system by misreporting income and other pertinent information.

Despite such continued and irrefutable evidence, some in the mainstream media persist in referring to the first exposé as an “isolated incident.” Juan Williams disputed the findings to Bill O‘Reilly insisting, “There’s no corruption…that’s so small, Bill….c‘mon.”

“To get a lower premium, I wouldn’t include it…that’s my money,” Obamacare navigator Kris McCray advises at the offices of Change Happens (formerly FUUSA) in Houston, Texas.  Listen as he informs the undercover reporter regarding the cash she ‘earned’ on the side but failed to report in her taxes. “I would just try to get that number as low as you can. It would help you qualify for more stuff as far as aid and stuff like that.”

Other applicants are advised at the National Urban League offices in Dallas and Irving, Texas.


Glenn Beck rips McCain as “lousy senator from AZ”

November 14, 2013

McAwful now calls for total repeal of Obamacare

With his middle finger usually pointedly directed at conservatives, John McCain now has dampened it and holds it to the political wind as he flips on his support of Obamacare.

There is no way to improve on Beck’s scathing review of the old “maverick,” whom he said more than once that he couldn’t decide whether to call a “dirtbag weasel” or a “weasel dirtbag.”

This excellent Blaze post comes complete with video clips and McCain’s previous statements expressing another vantage point. “I can tell you, in the United States Senate, we will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not, and to think we can is not rational,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper in September.

McCain has also argued on several occasions that American voters “spoke” on Obamacare when they re-elected President Barack Obama, and that Republicans lost the fight to repeal the law

Pure McCain.  Pure BS.


Obama calls Iran’s despotic Muslim ayatollah “Supreme Leader”

November 9, 2013

Jay Nordlinger, writing in the Nov. 11, issue of National Review, has a commentary sure to set the teeth of any thinking American on edge.

In “Entitled” Nordlinger addresses what he calls the “tricky business of addressing or referring to an unsavory foreign leader.”

The article begins with these words: “In his recent address at the U.N., President Obama referred to Ali Khamenei, the head ayatollah in Iran. Each time, he referred to him as “the Supreme Leader.” He did not even say his name: just “Supreme Leader.” Was that really necessary, for the president of the United States? Those who control Iran may refer to Khamenei as “Supreme Leader” — but do democratic leaders, such as Obama, have to follow suit?

Two months after he became president, in 2009, Obama sent Nowruz greetings to Iran. (Nowruz is the Persian new year.) His predecessor, George W. Bush, had sent such greetings too. But Bush made clear that he was sending them to the people. Obama sent them to “the people and leaders” of Iran. He also referred to the country — twice — as “the Islamic Republic of Iran,” as the mullahs style the country. Iranian democrats, many of whom are in jail, don’t see it that way.”

Sign up to read the article in its entirety. Better yet on this brisk November day, go out and purchase a copy. As a conservative, it’s a gift you should give yourself.


Liar-in Chief lies about Obamacare lies

November 8, 2013

Ultimate paternalism: Obama knows best, government will care for us

For several years, Americans  heard this reassuring lie repeatedly from Barack Obama:

Now he arrogantly says “He’s sorry,” (video under link) that millions of Americans are losing their health insurance plans as a result of Obamacare. “I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in this White House interview.

So what is he going to do about it? Don’t hold your breath waiting.

Obama’s liberal surrogates have been vocal in defending his lies, saying the plans — even if you were happy with them — were “substandard.” And if he lied for “the greater good,” so what?

After gagging on that, take time to watch this revealing, fact-filled  and maddening video called, “Obamacare, Deconstructed.


Michelle O’s college pal given no-bid ACA contract

October 26, 2013

It pays to have friends in high places 

The Daily Caller reports that Toni Townes-Whitley, a former Princeton classmate of Michelle Obama is a top executive at the company that was gifted with the no-bid contract to build what has become the failed Obamacare/Affordable Care Act (ACA) website.

Townes-Whitley is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which constructed the failed $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.

Coincidences abound. Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Robinson Obama are also both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

In its Oct. 13, edition, the Washington Examiner’s Watchdog Accountability section reported on the odd fact that federal officials considered only the single firm to design the Obamacare health insurance exchange website that has performed abysmally since its Oct. 1 debut.

Rather than open the contracting process to a competitive public solicitation with multiple bidders, officials in the Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid accepted a sole bidder, CGI Federal, the U.S. subsidiary of a Canadian company with an “uneven” record of IT pricing and contract performance

George Schindler, president of CGI Group, CGI Federal’s parent company, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company gained the Obamacare website contract.

It would be tempting to say this was not a bad return on a $1000 investment, but in this case the donation was actually more of an after-the-fact gratuity.
