‘Tyrannical’ Obama


Black business leader blasts Obama. Harry C. Alford, president and co-founder of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, created a furor in February with his criticism of the Barack Obama. He said the President’s use of executive orders is “tyrannical” and a violation of the Constitution. Moreover, he added, Obama’s economic policies are “borderline communist.” Although a video of his remarks has gone viral, they have been pretty much ignored by the mainstream media. There’s no surprise there.

Why not sequester foreign aid? The White House announced last week that it will release $1.5 billion in foreign aid to Egypt. The disbursements had been held up because of concerns about Egypt’s anti-Western posturing and anti-democratic policies. At the same time, the Administration released $500 million to the radicals who control the Palestinian Authority. Hey, Mr. President, if money is so tight you had to cancel the White House tours, here’s a way to save $2 billion — and make the world a safer place, too.

Rand Paul did not say that. Despite several misleading and inaccurate reports to the contrary, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) did not propose a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants when he made a major address to a Hispanic group last month. What he did say was that his plan would “allow us to admit we are not going to deport the millions of people who are currently here illegally.” And that we need to find a way of “bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.” He never mentioned citizenship in his speech. (Yes, I read it). And his office made it clear that he is not in favor of it.

Charging passengers by weight. Samoa Air, which flies passengers between the Samoan islands in the Pacific, announced that from now on, passengers will be charged by how much they weigh. The exact amount will depend on the distance flown. Passengers will be asked how much they weigh when they purchase a ticket — and they will then be weighed when they check in at the airport, to make sure they weren’t fibbing. Sounds fair to me. But can you imagine the howls we’d hear if a U.S. carrier tried the same thing?

    “Why not sequester foreign aid?”
    An excellent idea. Of course since it is an excellent idea the feds will never even consider it much less follow through and do it.

      If it makes sense, the government, especially the Obama regime, wants nothing to do with it. The only plans and/or policies they want are those that spend and waste money.

        You just identified a domestic terrorist (financial).

    I understand the “senate gang” is close to a “deal” with “bidness” & “labor” on how many “illegal” low skilled aliens will be allowed into the country each year. I heard it’s 20,0000. Interestingly, there has been more than double that amount “graduating” from chicago’s public edumacation system for several decades now. Where oh where are all these people now? On wefare, dead or in jail? Come on “martha”, you have the answer. All of the above? Correct “martha”, you good girl.

      Maybe when they wear their brown shirts you will see them.

      Ya know, if you stopped watching FOX and Rush Limburger you COULD learn something about the REAL WORLD.

      Due to industrialization and modernity, the real birthrate of “white Americans” has fallen to the point where it doesn’t even reach attrition. However, THANKS to immigration, we have replaced and even surpassed that number. Now, we have enough taxpayers to replace the “missing” Americans. And, what’s even better, is if we follow the Republican (nazi) immigration “reform”, we have lots of people paying taxes with NO HOPE OF EVER BEING QUALIFIED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY. So, you see, Immigration is NOT the “bogey” man that right wing shills try to play them.

      Se, si puede! Viva America!

    Sequester foreign aid and the UN support…why give money to our enemies ?
    ….and I’d gladly pay by weight if they got rid of the TSA perverts

    The government doesn’t want law abiding, hard working, tax paying American citizens to own guns, but they just gave 15 fighter jets to the crazy people in Egypt, not counting the money (our money) they sent to them. The government is not American anymore. It’s comunist.

  • Peter Barney

    Squestration was his idea to begin with!

  • Helen Tritt

    With all of the supposedly “sequester” budget cuts that are hurting America’s chances of ever succeeding an economic recovery, why is the government still spending on “frivolous” waste and why is Obama still allowed vacations on every whim? AIR FORCE ONE SHOULD BE GROUNDED FOR THE DURATION OF HIM BEING IN THE WH ILLEGALLY! Would save America Millions and Billions of taxpayers money.
