If you think issues matter in the Age of Fake you are an idiot. It’s all ploys and plots in the Age of Fake. Fake president, fake congress, fake Democrats, fake progressives, fake events, fake laws with fake names, fake media, fake news, fake issues – it’s all a fake.
Examine the fake drolleries in the U.S. Senate today. A Defense Department appropriations bill was supposed to be voted on in order to keep the Defense Department funded. Harry Reid, in a desperate battle to keep his senate seat away from Sharon Angle decided to play tricks. Reid threw into the appropriation bill two amendments in order to get him votes for reelection and gull voters into voting for the retrograde Obama Dimocratic Party.
The first amendment was the hallucinatory “Dream Act” which added immigration language and provisions to the military appropriations bill. This amendment was designed to help Reid and Obama Dimocrats convince Latinos that they were doing what they promised to do two years ago.
The second amendment was a fake “repeal” of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” military policy which keeps Gay American from serving in the U.S. armed forces. This so-called “repeal” was a fake nod, without real effort behind it, to the Gay community in order to get votes from gullible Gays and liberals.
The Dream Act was an act, a political ploy designed to hide the reality that Obama and his band of Hopium fueled Dimocrats broke their promise on “comprehensive” immigration reform. The DADT provision was a handover of congressional authority to Obama and a few top military people to eventually decide the fate of Gay Americans who wish to serve in the armed forces.
Today all the fake hit a very real Republican filibuster. Here is what happened:
“Senate Republicans have blocked an effort to repeal the law banning gays from serving openly in the military.
The partisan vote was a defeat for gay rights groups who saw the provision in a defense authorization bill as their last chance any time soon to overturn the law known as “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Democrats fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance the legislation, which authorized $726 billion in defense spending including a pay raise for troops.
Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins had been seen as the crucial 60th vote because she supports overturning the military ban. But Collins sided with her GOP colleagues in arguing that Republicans weren’t given sufficient leeway to offer amendments to the wide-ranging policy bill.”
Why is this all fake? Consider:
“Now, gay rights advocates say they worry they have lost a crucial opportunity to change the law. If Democrats lose seats in the upcoming elections this fall, repealing the law will prove even more difficult — if not impossible — next year.
“The whole thing is a political train wreck,” said Richard Socarides, a former White House adviser on gay rights during the Clinton administration.
Socarides said President Barack Obama “badly miscalculated” the Pentagon’s support for repeal, while Democrats made only a “token effort” to advance the bill.
“If it was a priority for the Democratic leadership, they would get a clean vote on this,” he said.”
Socarides is being a fake. This was not “badly miscalculated”. This was a ploy. This was a total fake. Obama hates Gay people and only pretends on Gay issues. Compare and contrast Lady Gaga to
Barack Obama Lady Marmalade:
“Senate Democrats attached the repeal provision to a bill authorizing $726 billion in military spending next year. With little time left for debate before this fall’s congressional elections, the bill received little attention until gay rights groups backed by pop star Lady Gaga began an aggressive push to turn it into an election issue. [snip]
Gates has asked Congress not to act until the military finishes a study, due Dec. 1, on how to lift the ban without causing problems. He also has said he could live with the proposed legislation because it would postpone implementation until 60 days after the Pentagon completes its review and the president certifies that repeal won’t hurt morale, recruiting or retention.
In another blow to the bill, Obama’s pick to lead the Marine Corps told a Senate panel on Tuesday that he worried that changing the policy would serve as a “distraction” to Marines fighting in Afghanistan.”
Lady Gaga did more than Barack Obama, the hooker Lady Marmalade of Washington D.C. Only the very stupid Big Blog Boys believe that Obama would not find an excuse to certify “that repeal won’t hurt morale”. Very fake Gay Big Blog Boys think Obama really, really likes Gay people.
Think we are being unfair to
Barack Obama Lady Marmalade?
Consider that “a few hours” before the vote Barack Obama finally broke his silence on the bill and further destabilized potential passage by “strongly” objecting to a Guantanamo provision in the bill. It was all a ruse to get the Defense money and fool voters into thinking he wanted the other provisions passed as well.
Read our articles on the fake Gay benefits Obama proffered only when the Gay ATM threatened to deny him money. Obama loathes Gay men. Obama waged a campaign of Gay-bashing during the primaries and nothing has changed since then.
Dimocrats, including Gay Big Blog Boys, knew Obama’s Gay bashing history but they applauded Obama nevertheless. Now the Gay Big Blog Boys will whine and pout.
Those Gay Big Blog Boys that raised money for Obama and loved Obama are not proud Gay men (we’re sorely tempted to use the “F” word here as a sign of total contempt for these swine). Read the assessment of the Gay swine Big Blog Boys from last week:
“With the imminent demise of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” compromise that did not, in any case, repeal DADT (even though the NYT and other lazy journalists like to claim it did), and the imminent demise of the Democratically-controlled House of Representatives, President Obama is about to have accomplished a record zero of his top promises to the gay community. A record that, if we lose the House, will likely remain at zero for the next six years, if the President is so lucky as to win re-election.
We were told that the President simply couldn’t get to his promises to our community in his first two years in office because we are a nation at war, and he had to work on health care reform, the economy, and many other issues that were meant to believe were far more important than our basic civil and human rights.
And now, after all the pandering by all the pro-Obama apologists who said that we were wrong to ask the President to address our community’s needs during his first two years in office, that we were wrong to warn of the imminent loss of a Democratically-controlled House, and how that loss would stymie gay rights progress for years to come, and that we were wrong to suggest that this President would never, ever get to addressing a real repeal of DADT and DOMA, and the passage of ENDA – after all that, it turns out we were right.
Barack Obama is on the precipice of accomplishing a grand total of none of his major promises to gay and lesbian Americans in return for our supporting his candidacy with our votes and our money. I’m not smelling change.[snip]
Perhaps, though I would argue that it’s precisely Obama’s fault that Democrats are in such a sorry state. After all, who’s the leader of our party? Who took the lead in setting our agenda last year…. [snip]
It clearly was Barack Obama’s choice not to move ahead with any of his major promises to the gay community in the first two years of his administration. No one else is to blame other than the President for that simple decision. That decision may have killed any chance of ever passing ENDA, or repealing DADT and DOMA, for the entire four years that President Obama in office. It was Barack Obama’s choice not to even touch DADT until this year, and then not to push for a full repeal, but rather some make-shift compromise that may, or may not, lead to some kind of change in the policy at some future date (though what kind of change, for the better or the worse, isn’t a guarantee). We simply weren’t important enough, and now it appears we are getting nothing.
What is the point anymore?[snip]
We were told that Obama would be our “fierce advocate.” We were told that by Barack Obama himself. That, my friends, has turned out to be a crock. The President is not our advocate, and on no issue, gay or otherwise, is the man fierce.”
This is truly repulsive stuff. We’re not talking about Obama. We have known Obama is repulsive for too long. The ones that are repulsive are simpering creeps like the writer of the above excerpt. John Aravosis and his political bed mate Andrew Sullivan knew all this about Obama but they raised money for him and attacked Hillary Clinton. Aravoisis now pretends to be a fierce critic of Obama but his dirty attacks on Hillary Clinton are not forgotten.
Aravosis the hypocrite simpering whiner who fellated Obama repeatedly needs to come clean about his acknowledged dirty deeds performed in service for Barack Obama. Now this traitor to the Gay community wants to be perceived as a defender of Gay people but he forever will be known as one of those that betrayed the Gay community in service to Barack “Lady Marmalade” Obama.
Aravosis does not have the intellectual honesty to understand how these words he wrote apply to every Hillary Clinton supporter but we will post them just so we can laugh at that fool:
“But as I’ve written before, I’m not a big fan of being betrayed by friends, even when I know my enemies would have treated me worse. I expect my enemies to treat me like a pariah. I don’t expect my friends to do the same. And in many ways, it’s worse when the indifference, and the lies, come from a friend rather than an enemy.”
Never trust a back stabber ‘sis. The same knife used to stab others in the back will someday be stuck in you.
As to the DREAM act, which was a fake publicity stunt to bamboozle the Latino community in the same way Obama Dimocrats succeed in bamboozling the Gay community, there is not much to add. It’s all the same fake stunt. The promised “comprehensive immigration reform” never came. Sorry Latinos who believed treacherous Barack Obama – you were just as stupid as the Gay people who believed Barack Obama – and the Black people, and Asians, and Greens and Republicans, and Independents, and men, and women, and Whites, and….
Do we need genuine comprehensive immigration reform? You betcha!
Every time we reported on Obama’s Aunt Zeituni we have been fair to her. We have noted that Obama exploited his Aunt and Uncle in his book and then when he no longer needed them for narrative material he forgot all about them. We did note Aunt Zeituni’s illegal contributions to Barack Obama’s campaign and the campaign to keep her under wraps and not answer any questions about her creepy nephew. But we always said that we did not want Obama’s aunt “to be hounded and persecuted” the way others (we referred to Joe the Plumber) have been.
Today, illegal immigrant Aunt Zeituni repaid the kindness from us and other Americans with the type of contempt so typical of the Obama family.
It turns out Aunt Zeituni is just another run of the mill creepy Obama:
“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.” Those are the words from 58-year-old Zeituni Onyango of Kenya in a recent exclusive interview with WBZ-TV.
Onyango is the aunt of President Barack Obama. She lived in the United States illegally for years, receiving public assistance in Boston.
‘I KNEW I OVERSTAYED’ [snip]
Onyango had violated the law, and she knew it.
“I knew I had overstayed” she told WBZ-TV’s Jonathan Elias when the two sat down one-on-one.
ASSIGNED PUBLIC HOUSING
Zeituni Onyango said she came to the United States in 2000 and had every intention of leaving. Then, however, she says she got deathly ill and was hospitalized. When she recovered, she said she was broke and couldn’t afford to leave.
For two years Onyango said she lived in a homeless shelter, before she was assigned public housing despite thousands of legal residents also awaiting assistance. “I didn’t take any advantage of the system. The system took advantage of me.”
“I didn’t ask for it; they gave it to me. Ask your system. I didn’t create it or vote for it. Go and ask your system,” she said unapologetically…
… “To me America’s dream became America’s worst nightmare,” she said adamantly. “I have been treated like public enemy number one.”
It’s easy to see the Aunt Zeituni in Barack Obama. Barack Obama has turned the American Dream into a Hopium fueled nightmare where fakery is all and arrogance rules.
