With the scandals President Barack Obama and his henchmen have created polluting the national discourse, it is becoming increasingly apparent that a special prosecutor will be appointed soon. Here’s a thought that ought to keep you awake tonight: What if Obama himself ends up facing the pokey?
Imagine a world in which President Barack Obama is actually competent and his cronies are honest and dedicated public servants, as opposed to wire-pulling cretins who think the public exists to serve them. Instead, what some Democrats still call an “Administration” more closely resembles a crime syndicate.
In the television business, they call it “jumping the shark.” The phrase was inspired by a rather infamous episode of “Happy Days.” In the years that followed, “jumping the shark” entered the lexicon as a phrase that identifies the subject as having passed the point of value on the path to self-parody. Even those few men who have inhabited the highest office in the land have leaped over the proverbial predator.
I’m often asked by conservative friends how I continue to laugh at the increasingly Orwellian sideshow presented by President Barack Obama and his accomplices. Most of them expect the old “laugh or you’ll cry” saw, which isn’t entirely inappropriate.
President Barack Obama and his Democratic accomplices have spun themselves sick trying to stay ahead of the scandal they created in Benghazi, Libya. The talking points proffered by the fringe leftists who have taken over the Federal government have swerved from the ridiculous to the insultingly stupid.
President Barack Obama’s supporters have shrugged off myriad scandals and lies. Either Americans can live with that, or we can’t. If the former is true, then we deserve no better than Obama. If the latter is true, the elections in 2014 and 2016 will likely be our last chance to do something about it.
Normally, someone who oversees the engineering of a program that leads directly to the murders of hundreds of people and then acts as if questions about the program are somehow unfair or even racist is either an absolute idiot or an outright sociopath. But “normally” and “President Barack Obama” seldom collide in the same sentence.
Benghazi was just a crappy town in a crappy country, “global warming” was called “global cooling,” and Kermit Gosnell was just another abortionist. Also: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz occasionally washed her hair. Now: Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Richard Nixon is hardly lonely on the list of Presidents who lied. Lying wasn’t Nixon’s downfall; hubris was. Nixon forgot that the White House isn’t a palace, and Presidents are not kings. But he was neither the first nor the last to make that error. Witness the progress of the current Lord of the Oval Office.
According to a study conducted by the University of California at Los Angeles, the intellectual shepherds to whom we entrust our children self-identify as liberal more than 60 percent of the time on average, with fewer than 15 percent of their colleagues claiming a more rational outlook.
Cartoonist Jack Ohman thinks the tragic fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, was caused by a lack of government bureaucracy. So he depicted Texas Governor Rick Perry, who has been enthusiastically recruiting businesses, as luring people to their doom in a fiery explosion.
If Stephen King, Dean Koontz and William Peter Blatty were locked in a room with a laptop, the collected works of Edgar Allen Poe and a truckload of Bogota, Colombia’s finest nose candy, I’m not sure they could come up with something quite as horrifying as a regular business day at the abortion clinic and house of horrors run by accused murderer Kermit Gosnell.
If the definition of insanity is indeed repeatedly doing the same thing while constantly expecting different results, then the islamofascist bombing of the Boston Marathon and the aftermath thereof offers lessons aplenty on the cycle of insanity in which our Nation now finds itself.
It’s always difficult to pen a column in the wake of a nightmare like the Boston Marathon attack. I could rhetorically bellow at the top of my lungs. But any shrieking I might do would be wasted. The victims have bigger worries. The perpetrators either don’t care or enjoy the effect. And life would go on.
The “low-information” set (loafers) present outrageous statements about guns as irrefutable facts. Of course, not one of them is true; but damn it, you gun zealots, we’re talking about children’s lives! Besides, liberals have no compunction about fudging the facts when it comes to politics.
The scene is a secluded alleyway in a large American city. The characters are a gangbanger and a black-marketeer. The plot revolves around an illegal firearms purchase. The gun grabbers have made it difficult, if not impossible, for law-abiding citizens to buy guns; but that doesn’t stop the criminals.
To the best of my recollection, sometime in the 1990s, the corporate media welded “gun” to “violence,” creating a rhetorical Frankenstein’s monster. With the exception of former Attorney General Janet Reno’s occasional combat operations against her fellow citizens, anytime a firearm featured into a crime, “gun violence” was blamed.
