The GOP’s Greatest Lie

Opposition to Obama? That is the GOP’s greatest lie.

In 2008 John McCain fluffed Obama’s pillows so that Big Media would not call the former POW a racist. In 2012 Mitt Romney played dog-on-the-roof for Obama. Romney praised Obama as a nice guy while Barack Obama smeared him with mud from the Chicago stockyards. Instead of someone who would attack Obama with verve, Romney chose pretty blue eyes Paul Ryan. Now Paul Ryan is at it again.

Paul Ryan is doing everything he can to help Barack Obama. Fortunately Representative Ted Yoho makes the central point in opposition to Obama/Ryan in this Hill newspaper report on the GOP’s greatest lie as Republican leaders in Congress do what they can to help Barack Obama:

We could wait another 18 months until this administration is out,” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), a TPA opponent, said Thursday. “You look at how they negotiated the release of the Taliban Five; you look at how they negotiated what they’ve done with Cuba; look at how they’ve negotiated what we’ve done with the Iran nuclear deal — I personally don’t want them negotiating anything else.”

That’s exactly the point, isn’t it? Obama cannot be trusted on any issue by friend nor foe. We don’t want Obama negotiating anything with anyone. But Paul Ryan and the Republican establishment disagree with us.

Whether you’re for or against TPP (or is it TPA?) the bottom lie is: Obama cannot be trusted. So let’s have some Sharia Law here and politically cut off Obama’s slimy hands. But that is not what is happening because, well, GOP leadership:

House GOP leaders are expressing a bold new confidence heading into the final stretch of the divisive fight over granting President Obama broad trade powers.

The vote, expected as soon as this week, is likely to be a nail-biter — scores of lawmakers in both parties remain publicly undecided, making the count on both sides difficult to pin down.

But both the White House and GOP leaders say their whipping efforts are paying dividends, with new supporters signing on by the day.

The White House won a victory last week when Reps. Jim Himes (D-Conn.), Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Derek Kilmer (D-Wash.) announced their support. And both Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said that, while they don’t have the votes yet, they expect to very soon.

“If we don’t get it done in June, I don’t know why you’d think we can get it done in July,” said Boehner, who’s been coordinating efforts with the White House and recently spoke with Obama. “We need to get this finished. We’re gonna get it done.”

Obama Dimocrats don’t trust Obama (only 18 support ObamaTrade) but the GOP does. The lies from the GOP burst out like wind from the prairie:

They face strong headwinds from conservatives wary of granting additional authority to a president they don’t trust to use it wisely.

“We could wait another 18 months until this administration is out,” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), a TPA opponent, said Thursday. “You look at how they negotiated the release of the Taliban Five; you look at how they negotiated what they’ve done with Cuba; look at how they’ve negotiated what we’ve done with the Iran nuclear deal — I personally don’t want them negotiating anything else.”

Ryan countered that TPA actually “constrains the president,” requiring administration officials to follow guidelines set by Congress and frequently brief lawmakers about any progress in negotiations. Members also can sit in on the talks.

There’s our favorite quote again followed by crap from the mouth of Paul Ryan. Ryan knows that once the authority is given no “guidelines” from Congress or “sit in on the talks” members will derail whatever treachery Obama comes up with.

We could imagine the Republican leadership negotiating with Barack Obama over ObamaTrade. For instance if the GOP would say to Obama “We’ll repeal ObamaCare with your signature then pass our version of ObamaTrade.” We could see if there was some kind of “get” for Republicans from Obama. But nothing. Republicans are getting nothing from Obama as they luxuriate him with a great powerful gift. They get nothing. Obama gets to work his treachery.

It’s dumb and dumber. Obama negotiates bad deals for the United States of America chock full of treachery and the Republicans negotiate with Obama to give him more authority to harm the nation.

We don’t know what the Hell is flaming out of ObamaTrade, but whatever it is we don’t trust it. Obama Dimocrats agree with us even as those malicious vipers uncover new ObamaTrade horrors:

There’s also a growing concern among liberal Democrats over a $700 million offset provision for the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, a piece of the Trans-Pacific Partnership providing health insurance, retraining and other help to U.S. workers negatively affected by the deal. The cost would be offset by cuts to Medicare.

Talk about Secrets Revealed. ObamaCare passed with cuts to Medicare. ObamaTrade is set to pass with more cuts to Medicare. It’s treachery upon treachery. ObamaCare ObamaTrade Obama Obamination.

The GOP (and sensible Americans as well as Obama Dimocrats) should not trust Obama. The GOP should not give Barack Obama a used toothpick let alone anything of value. But instead of following sane advice, instead of getting something from Obama, the GOP continues to lie and gift Obama fluffy pillows. It’s a Devil’s Pact indeed:

A Devil’s Pact: Instead of Doing Obama’s Bidding, GOP Lawmakers Should Be Opposing ObamaTrade — #StopFastTrack [snip]

Here are some of the things that ObamaTrade does, according to one source:

Only two of its 26 chapters actually cover trade issues such as tariffs and quotas.
Obamatrade would submit the U.S. to the jurisdiction of international tribunals established under the auspices of the United Nations or World Bank.
Obamatrade would surrender control of 544 million acres of public land – a quarter of the entire U.S. land area – to international authorities.
It would establish a system of foreign tribunals higher in authority than even the U.S. Supreme Court that could overrule federal court rulings
Obamatrade would shift decisions over the payment of U.S. tax dollars away from Congress and outside of the Constitutionally-established Article III federal court system (or even U.S. state system) to the authority of international tribunals.
Obama’s agreement would obligate the federal government to force U.S. states to conform state laws to 1000 pages of rules, regulations and constraints unrelated to trade – from land use to whether foreign firms operating in a state can be required to meet the same laws as domestic firms.
Obamatrade would empower foreign companies to use foreign tribunals to enforce special privileges only available to them. Obamatrade would exempt foreign companies from EPA and other onerous regulations that American firms would still be forced to comply with.
Under Obamatrade, foreign companies could actually go to an international tribunal and sue American taxpayers for cash awards to compensate them for costs associated with government regulations – something American-owned companies would not be able to do.
Obamatrade rewrites the global rules of the Internet to impose restrictive rules that Congress rejected when it rejected SOPA, PIPA and ACTA.
The TPP includes some 26 separate chapters that affect our sovereignty, jobs, businesses, farms, food, consumer safety, immigration, the Internet and more.

Moreover, according to Forbes, under the draft provisions of the TPP to be leaked by Wikileaks, “countries could be barred from trying to control where their citizens’ personal data is held or whether it’s accessible from outside the country.” [snip]

Notwithstanding the fact that Republicans trusting Barack Obama with anything more than reading parking meters is a fool’s folly, it is the Republicans who have seemed to have formed a Devil’s Pact with the President on the secret trade deal.

It doesn’t matter whether you think a Pacific region trade pact is a good or bad idea. It doesn’t matter whether you thought or think the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was/is a good deal. It doesn’t matter whether you support tariff barriers, free trade, fair trade, trade winds, Trader Joes, or trading cards. The only thing that matters is that:

“Obama cannot be trusted on any issue by friend nor foe. Obama simply cannot be trusted.”

Secrets Revealed

Update: Bad news: GOP presidential candidate, spouse are traffic scofflaws, or something. In 2008 the New York Times did not care that Barack Obama got 17 parking tickets. But Marco Rubio and wife get 17 parking tickets and the New York Times goes to print. Disgusting. We wrote about this “secret” at the end of our article but it is now getting some traction on Twitter and assorted kook sites so we thought someone should remind the world of the New York Times lack of coverage on Obama’s 17 violations.

——————————————————

The reveal of silly “secrets” get more attention than the real secrets. Why is that? Probably because the silly “secrets” were real secrets and therefore a surprise while the important “secrets” have been known for a long time even though no one dared speak the truth in words.

Forthwith some “secrets” revealed:

Our regular readers won’t think this first one a secret at all. We’ve been writing about this for so long only Bruce Jenner could possibly be surprised by this secret:

Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study. [snip]

The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. [snip]

The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups.

We don’t believe for a moment that the reason Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood is because he is so stupid he thinks the Muslim Brotherhood is good for “political reform in the Middle East”. We’ve written about why we think Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood.

The good news is that Egypt plans to execute Muslim Brotherhood leader Morsi. But that is not the only good news. Here is another secret we wrote about before it was a revealed secret:

Israelis and Saudis Reveal Secret Talks to Thwart Iran

Since the beginning of 2014, representatives from Israel and Saudi Arabia have had five secret meetings to discuss a common foe, Iran. On Thursday, the two countries came out of the closet by revealing this covert diplomacy at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.

Among those who follow the Middle East closely, it’s been an open secret that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in thwarting Iran. But until Thursday, actual diplomacy between the two was never officially acknowledged. Saudi Arabia still doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist. Israel has yet to accept a Saudi-initiated peace offer to create a Palestinian state.

It was not a typical Washington think-tank event. No questions were taken from the audience. After an introduction, there was a speech in Arabic from Anwar Majed Eshki, a retired Saudi general and ex-adviser to Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Then Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations who is slotted to be the next director general of Israel’s foreign ministry, gave a speech in English.

While these men represent countries that have been historic enemies, their message was identical: Iran is trying to take over the Middle East and it must be stopped.

Why is Saudi Arabia, which has opposed the very existence of Israel since the founding in 1948 of the modern Jewish state, openly talking to Israel? Because, as the article’s author Eli Lake writes, Saudi Arabia knows it can trust Israel, not Obama, to oppose Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Of less consequence to the world but still a surprise that few have noticed is something going on in Baltimore:

Everyone who works in the Baltimore mayor’s office is quitting

Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is having a problem with retaining her staff.

Ever since she helped bring the hammer down on six Baltimore police officers over the accidental death of Freddie Gray, four members on her Office on Criminal Justice have resigned. As in, her four highest-ranking cabinet members have each resigned, one by one, over a three-week period. That does not paint a pretty picture on what regard the Baltimore mayor is held in with her staff members.

Time for a name change? Baltiless? Balt-no-more?

The prosecutor in the case is trying with all her might to keep secret the autopsy report and other relevant information in the Freddie Gray case but secrets have a way of coming out when you least expect them. Maybe it’s time prosecutor Mosby join the Mayor’s top staff at the exit line.

We’re not going to hold our breaths waiting for the autopsy report from Balt-no-more. We’re waiting for the ObamaCare autopsy report in the form of the soon to be Supreme Court decision in King v. Burwell. Talk about an unrevealed secret. There’s been so much news about the ObamaCare death spiral and the much higher premium rates lately that it is almost as if the Supreme Court won’t have to do anything to finish off ObamaCare. As we have written before, for the very reasons we cited, ObamaCare is so bad it has now killed the possibility of single payer:

Just a few years ago, lawmakers in this left-leaning state viewed President Obama’s Affordable Care Act as little more than a pit stop on the road to a far more ambitious goal: single-payer, universal health care for all residents.

Then things unraveled. The online insurance marketplace that Vermont built to enroll people in private coverage under the law had extensive technical failures. The problems soured public and legislative enthusiasm for sweeping health care changes just as Gov. Peter Shumlin needed to build support for his complex single-payer plan. Finally, Mr. Shumlin, a Democrat, shelved the plan in December, citing the high cost to taxpayers. He called the decision “the greatest disappointment of my political life.” [snip]

But even though its residents’ subsidies appear safe for now, Vermont stands as a cautionary tale. Despite an eventual cost of up to $200 million in federal funds, its online marketplace, or exchange, is still not fully functional, while disgust with the system is running deep among residents and lawmakers alike.

Meanwhile, the hopes for a single-payer system, once tantalizingly close, may be lost for years. Under such a system, the government operates one health insurance plan for all residents, covering their medical costs instead of having private insurers do it.

Is anyone surprised?

Also on the health care front, a story we reported on during the 2014 elections was the sale of over-the-counter contraception. Many believed it was just a GOP ploy to get votes. But lo and behold there is now legislation designed to make contraceptives cheaper for women and easier to obtain. The dirty secret? Planned Parenthood profits and NARAL profits are threatened. So, war on women:

Why Liberals Oppose Over-the-Counter Birth Control

The supposedly pro-woman Left has erupted into fury this past week, denouncing new legislation proposed by Senator Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) that seeks to encourage over-the-counter status for birth control. Salon’s Katie McDonough called the senator perpetually “full of s**t.” Planned Parenthood’s president claimed that the bill “is a sham and an insult to women.” NARAL Pro-Choice America’s president called the idea “nothing but political pandering to trick women and families into thinking we are covered while dismantling one of the most critical gains in the Affordable Care Act.” And Slate’s Amanda Marcotte called it “just a feint.”

The Left’s reflexive criticism of Gardner’s plan derives from a deep public-sector and special-interest-backed paternalism that wants to control women’s health choices just as much as any other supposed patriarchy.

Removing the pharmacy-counter barrier between women and their birth control would give them vastly more, not less, power over their own health-care choices, also reducing health-care costs and improving access.

Right now, the federal government requires a prescription for birth control, even though other over-the-counter drugs (acetaminophen, for example) bear higher health risks, the directions are straightforward, and there’s no risk of overdose. [snip]

Planned Parenthood alone makes around $1.2 billion each year from contraceptive services.

Are men compelled to take prostate exams, testicular cancer tests, penis health tests, every time they buy condoms? No, but women have to get approval from a doctor to buy contraception. As we noted in 2014, Planned Parenthood has become Planned Profits. Another dirty secret revealed. We wonder what rapist Bernie Sanders has to say about this?

Did we say “dirty”? The EPA comes clean:

The Environmental Protection Agency’s long-awaited report on fracking dismayed liberal green groups Thursday while pleasing the oil and gas industry — the latest episode in both sides’ fraught relationship with President Barack Obama.

The study, more than four years in the making, said the EPA has found no signs of “widespread, systemic” drinking water pollution from hydraulic fracturing. That conclusion dramatically runs afoul of one of the great green crusades of the past half-decade, which has portrayed the oil- and gas-extraction technique as a creator of fouled drinking water wells and flame-shooting faucets.

Thursday’s congressionally mandated EPA report, a compilation of past studies, found isolated incidents in which water pollution was attributable to the use of fracking. But it failed to back up the idea that fracking poses a major threat to water supplies, contradicting years of activists’ warnings dramatized by images of burning tap water in the Oscar-nominated documentary “Gasland.”

For those who refuse to accept the “science” of fracking there is an alternative. It’s an alternative that according to another study many Americans are taking:

The Enormous Scope of Our National Drinking Problem
A large new study suggests we’re in denial regarding this important health issue.

Nearly three out of 10 Americans have shown evidence of a serious alcohol-related problem at some point in their lives, and only one-fifth of those have sought professional help.

Those sobering statistics are found in a study just published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry. It’s the first comprehensive look at the widespread problem of Alcohol Use Disorder, as newly defined by the American Psychiatric Association.

Due to changing criteria, and past studies showing differing results, trends regarding alcohol-related problems are difficult to definitively discern. But just on their own, the latest numbers are staggering.

At first we refused to believe this study about our national drunks. But as we shoulder pushed our shopping cart at the market, heavily laden with Belgian chocolates, Champagne, and caviar, we were dumbstruck at the checkout line. There it was. A data point in favor of the study. On one of those tabloid magazines near the cashier. We nearly fainted. We were light-headed. We almost opened up some of the bubbly to drink for medicinal purposes.

No it was not the breathless New York Times report that Marco Rubio and his wife got 17 traffic tickets. The New York Times in 2008 and since did not care a whit about Barack Obama’s 17 parking tickets so we knew it was political hypocrisy not drunk driving responsible for such a headline. No what caught our eyes was Hillary.

Yup, it appears Hillary is a drunk. It breaks our hearts to report this top secret. But, Hillary is a drunk. She admits it. She has confessed. Hillary’s confession can be read at The Globe:

BOMBSHELL! HILLARY CLINTON CONFESSES: ‘I’M AN ALCOHOLIC!’

Presidential contender Hillary Clinton is hiding a devastating health issue from voters – she’s an alcoholic and secretly went to detox before announcing her run for the White House. Get more about Hillary’s shocking confession, her medical issues — and SEE a shocking photo showing why she’s not fit to run America. ONLY in this issue of GLOBE.

We’re in tears. She’s confessed. WHAT WILL HILLARY’S ALIEN BABY SAY? This is going to devastate interplanetary diplomatic relations for decades. What will Hillary’s lesbian lover, Yoko Ono, say? This could endanger international diplomatic relations for decades.

Some secrets are best kept hidden.

Does Hillary Clinton Want To Be Raped? Carly Fiorina? Sarah Palin? – Meet Bernie Sanders The Rapist

The promise of Baltimore O’Malley went up in riotous flames. The Kook Left is stuck with Bernie Sanders as their man. And what a man Bernie Sanders is. Let’s meet Bernie Sanders – rapist:

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Essay: Women ‘Fantasize About Being Raped’

In a 1972 essay, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) opined that men fantasized about women being abused. He also claimed that women fantasized about being gang raped.

In an article entitled “Men-And-Women,” published in an alternative newspaper called the “Vermont Freeman” Sanders shared his thoughts on male and female sexuality in ways that would cause a media firestorm if it had been penned by any current GOP candidate. Even one with as little chance at grabbing his party’s nomination as Sanders currently has.

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy,” wrote Sanders. “A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused.

Maybe that is why kook socialist Sanders wants to run against Hillary. Maybe his campaign is a fantasy rape scenario of his drug addled mind. A woman enjoys intercourse with her man–as she fantasizes about being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

At conservative National Review Charles Cooke writes a smart but premature defense of rape fantasist Bernie Sanders:

And it wouldn’t just be Ted Cruz or Rick Santorum who would be asked about the essay: it would be every Republican in the race. In fact, it would be every Republican not in the race, too. Moreover, we’d see a host of think pieces on the GOP’s apparent ”rape problem”; we’d see endless Salon posts claiming stupidly that these attitudes were the product of free-market economics or a lack of gun control or of the pernicious influence that Protestantism has on the American mind; and we’d see dubious “studies” and ill-gotten “polls” commissioned to back up the message du jour. On cable news, the Democratic party’s cheaper mouthpieces would reference it over and over again. On social media, snarky memes would be made and sent around, the better to influence the low-information voters who are crucial come presidential-election season. Immediately, Planned Parenthood would start a fundraising drive. And eventually, when the drumbeat became too much to handle, the essay’s author would resign or withdraw or commit some form of political seppuku.

And here’s the thing: That’s bloody awful.

Bernie Sanders wrote these words — and a lot of drivel besides – in 1972. Maybe he was young and foolish. Maybe he was a different man back then. Maybe society was unrecognizable and he had bought into all sorts of faddish psychology. Who knows? And frankly, who cares? Sure, the Democratic party would crucify a Republican for the same offense. But they shouldn’t. A society in which people are drummed out of politics for things they wrote 43 years ago is an ugly society indeed. Sometimes the best way to address hypocrisy is to take the high road. This is America: land of second chances. This is a place of redemption and of reinvention and of continual learning. Nobody honestly believes that Bernie Sanders is a sexual pervert or that he is a misogynist or that he intends to do women any harm. Nobody suspects that he harbors a secret desire to pass intrusive legislation or to cut gang rapists a break. Really, there is only one reason that anyone would make hay of this story, and that is to damage the man politically. Perhaps I’m old-fashioned. Perhaps I’m hopelessly idealistic. But until I see any sign of actual wrongdoing I’d much prefer to slam Sanders for his dangerous and ridiculous politics than to delve back into his past and embarrass him with a long-forgotten opinion. I certainly hope that my fellow conservatives will feel the same way, even if they do not enjoy the same courtesy from their adversaries.

Charles Cooke prematurely ejaculated absolution for Bernie Sanders. As Cooke himself writes about what Bernie Sanders wrote “Who knows” if Bernie Sanders still holds such views. Charles Cooke does not know what Bernie Sanders thinks now. Maybe Bernie Sanders like the rest of the Obama party is a turgid fortress of misogyny and woman hate. Charles Cooke does not know, but yet he absolves.

Imagine for just a moment Mr. Cooke, if Barnie Sanders wrote “Black people like to be abused. Black people want to be beaten and racial epithets spit onto their ebony faces. A black man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy, himself on his knees. He’s tied up. Racially abused.” Would Cooke then think Sanders deserved absolution without so much as an explanation for what he wrote?

But sexism and misogyny don’t count as much as racism for the political class. That’s why in 2008 Barack Obama could talk about Hillary’s “claws” coming out once a month menses clockwork and Howard Dean could claim he never saw any misogyny until way after the election.

Maybe Bernie Sanders owes an explanation for what he wrote? Maybe what Bernie Sanders wrote merits some Big Media attention?:

Why Bernie Sanders’ Decades-Old Rape Fantasies Matter to 2016

Though written more than 40 years ago, the candidate’s remarks still offend. And if he’s a serious candidate, he shouldn’t get a pass.

The reaction to what presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders wrote in an alternative newspaper in Vermont back in 1972 about men and women with rape fantasies has, of course, been divided: His defenders argue that the article is so far in the past that what he wrote then is irrelevant, while critics feel it’s only fair to crown him this year’s Todd Akin. (Unless you’ve mentally blocked it, perhaps in the same way that Akin said women can mentally block conception following “legitimate rape,” you’ll recall that the GOP congressman, who was Senator Claire McCaskill’s Republican challenger in 2012, became his party’s poster child for how not to talk about sexual violence.)

Conservative writer Dan Joseph sounds a common theme on the right when he argues that while reporters shrug over what Sanders wrote, if “Ted Cruz or Rick Santorum wrote something along these lines—even 40 years ago—the media wouldn’t stop talking about it for weeks.” Which is incontrovertibly true.

On the other side, a piece on the feminist outlet Jezebel attempts to thread the needle, both countering and conforming to Joseph’s challenge. In that article, the whole thing is written off as the weird-but-so-what ramblings of “an aging hippie who—theory—might have been stoned out of his gourd while writing.”

But here’s the thing: There is no statute of limitations in presidential politics. And if Senator Sanders wants to be taken seriously as a candidate for the highest office, then the right answer is to note that what he wrote about rape 43 years ago, at the age of 31, is seriously messed up. [snip]

Do we in the media really only care about appalling views when Republicans and/or front-runners hold them?

Bernie Sanders is not a serious candidate. We know that. Josh Kraushaar is correct to write that Bernie Sanders is proof of how kooky the Obama Dimocrat Kook left has become. That Hillary2016 is “spooked” and therefore caters more to the Bernie Sanders Kook Left than to the voters Hillary will need in the general election is, as Kraushaar writes, the real damage a Bernie Sanders poses.

As Obama Dimocrats prepare to re-fight the losing “war on women” campaign ploy in 2016 it is time for real advocates for women to stand up and demand answers from Kook Left Obama Dimocrat Bernie Sanders. It is perverse that a fictional rape on Game of Thrones gets more attention than a leftist Kook candidate for president’s fantasy rape ruminations.

Bernie Sanders is a full tilt kook who is seeking attention and the presidential nomination. Big Media should provide Sanders with full attention regarding his rape fantasies. As Bob Schieffer on his last day as host of Face The Nation confessed about Barack Obama 2008, “Maybe we were not skeptical enough.” How about a little skepticism now? How about discussing sexism and misogyny from the kook left?

In 2008 the Obama Kook Left waged a war on a woman and every woman who disagrees with them. From Ralph Nader to Barack Obama to Bernie Sanders the Kook left is a woman-hating misogynistic corruption. Whether it is Hillary Clinton or Carly Fiorina or Sarah Palin the misogynistic war on women by the left must be exposed.

The question that must be asked: Is Bernie Sanders’ presidential run a rape fantasy?

Baltimore O’Malley Stinks Of B.O. – #newleadership #OMalley2016 And The Central Contradiction Of Martin O’Malley

O’Malley looks for his opening is a typical Big Media headline. Well, like Denny Hastert, we fat fingered O’Malley’s opening a while back to his great discomfort.

In Martin O’Malley’s Data Driven #BaltimoreRiots we stuck some fat fingers into the central contradiction of Martin O’Malley’s chest thumping run for president. Martin O’Malley’s central campaign call is that Martin O’Malley will lead America with data driven politics which we can all witness in his record of data driven governing in Maryland. The problem is Baltimore.

Baltimore O’Malley has to answer for Baltimore. Old recycled campaign bumper stickers of #newleadership won’t cut it. Baltimore O’Malley has to answer for Baltimore. We will quote from our previous Baltimore O’Malley article and quote from an articulate Baltimore O’Malley constituent:

F— that, this is his fault!” screamed a man who followed along on a red motorcycle as O’Malley and the crowd that surrounded him moved down the street. “Do you know who he is? Why would you shake his hand?

This Saturday as he announced his vainglorious vanity candidacy Baltimore O’Malley, in Baltimore, heard from Baltimore residents once again:

A few demonstrators gathered near the park to protest O’Malley’s criminal justice policies as mayor, an office he held from 1999 until his election as governor in 2006. During O’Malley’s speech, there was sporadic shouting from protesters, including one who blew a whistle.

O’Malley called the unrest “heartbreaking” but said “there is something to be learned from that night, and there is something to be offered to our country from those flames. For what took place here was not only about race, not only about policing in America. It’s about everything it is supposed to mean to be an American.”

Megan Kenny, 38, of Baltimore, who held a sign that said “stop killer cops” and yelled “black lives matter,” said she thought O’Malley’s decision to run was “a strange choice,” especially because of the recent rioting. She attributed the unrest to his “ineffective zero-tolerance policy.”

Baltimore O’Malley’s “decision to run was ‘a strange choice’” indeed. Does Martin O’Malley stand by his policies as mayor and governor or not? Whichever way he plays his data driven polling campaign Baltimore O’Malley loses. Why? Look at the flames in Baltimore. Whatever Baltimore O’Malley did as governor of Maryland and Mayor of Baltimore clearly failed.

The flames of Baltimore are “heartbreaking” for Baltimore O’Malley. O’Malley’s hand-picked successor was rejected by Maryland voters. If O’Malley had done such a great job as governor wouldn’t Maryland voters want more of the same? Deep, deep blue Maryland voters, second only to Massachusetts in their blueness, rejected Baltimore O’Malley’s third term. A Republican governor now improbably sits in the governor’s chair in deep deep blue Maryland.

Baltimore O’Malley during his announcement did mouth some words many will agree with:

“Tell me how it is, that not a single Wall Street CEO was convicted of a crime related to the 2008 economic meltdown? Not a single one,” O’Malley said. “Tell me how it is, that you can get pulled over for a broken tail light, but if you wreck the nation’s economy you are untouchable?”

Um, who was president when that outrage happened? Who was the president that mouthed fiery words promising that he would punish the malefactors of great wealth only to reward the powerful and wealthy with federal largesse to stimulate their appetites? Who was the president that mouthed “yes we can” “hope and change” only to guarantee health insurance companies forced slave labor camp customers and rewarded the mighty with taypayer dollar relief? “#newleadership” is the old “HOPE and CHANGE” lies bottled in the Baltimore. Or is Baltimore O’Malley saying Barack Obama has failed? We’ve heard any criticism of Obama is racist so maybe Baltimore O’Malley is a racist too.

Several years ago when we began to speculate that Martin O’Malley would run for president in 2016 there was a chance for Maryland O’Malley. But just as he was taking off his shirt to display his chest to the nation Maryland O’Malley morphed into Baltimore O’Malley. Like the cartoon of President Lyndon Johnson with his shirt open to show his appendix scar, which the cartoonist drew as Vietnam, shirtless Martin O’Malley has a tattoo of Baltimore scarring his chest.

The scar Baltimore cuts into O’Malley is ugly:

Nine murders and nearly 30 shootings over the weekend brought Baltimore’s monthly homicide toll to its highest point in more than 15 years, taxing a city and police department already pushed to its limits after rioting last month.

Baltimore logged a record 35 homicides as of Tuesday, the most in a single month since 1999. This year, the city has had 108 homicides.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” City Councilman William “Pete” Welch told The (Baltimore) Sun. “The shootings and killings are all over the city.”

Does Baltimore O’Malley denounce or endorse the police polices he put in place when he was Mayor of Baltimore? Does Baltimore O’Malley condemn or congratulate his current successor to Baltimore City Hall? Does Baltimore O’Malley promise to do to America what Baltimore O’Malley did to Baltimore? Is Baltimore O’Malley proud of what is happening in many American cities and in Baltimore? Is Baltimore to be America’s future if Baltimore O’Malley is elected president?:

BALTIMORE (AP) — A 31-year-old woman and a young boy were shot in the head Thursday, becoming Baltimore’s 37th and 38th homicide victims so far this month, the city’s deadliest in 15 years.

The most recent killings claimed the lives of Jennifer Jeffrey and her seven-year-old son, Kester Anthony Browne. They were identified by Jeffrey’s sister, Danielle Wilder.

Jeffrey and her son were found dead early Thursday, each from gunshot wounds to the head. [snip]

Thursday’s deaths continue a grisly and dramatic uptick in murders across Baltimore that has so far claimed the lives of 38 people. Meanwhile, arrests have plunged: Police are booking fewer than half the number of people they pulled off the streets last year.

Why are arrests down in Baltimore? Baltimore O’Malley must declare whether he thinks his data driven polices have failed. Baltimore O’Malley must say either that his data driven polices as mayor of Baltimore are to blame or whether it is the fault of the police. Baltimore O’Malley has to explain how Baltimore police can do their job if when they do their job they are subject to arrest. Baltimore O’Malley has to answer to the community and the police before he takes his failed policies to the national stage:

Arrests were already declining before Freddie Gray died on April 19 of injuries he suffered in police custody, but they dropped sharply thereafter, as his death unleashed protests, riots, the criminal indictment of six officers and a full-on civil rights investigation by the U.S. Justice Department that has officers working under close scrutiny.

“I’m afraid to go outside,” said Antoinette Perrine, whose brother was shot down three weeks ago on a basketball court near her home in the Harlem Park neighborhood of West Baltimore. Ever since, she has barricaded her door and added metal slabs inside her windows to deflect gunfire.

“It’s so bad, people are afraid to let their kids outside,” Perrine said. “People wake up with shots through their windows. Police used to sit on every corner, on the top of the block. These days? They’re nowhere.”

West Baltimore residents worry they’ve been abandoned by the officers they once accused of harassing them, leaving some neighborhoods like the Wild West without a lawman around.

“Before it was over-policing. Now there’s no police,” said Donnail “Dreads” Lee, 34, who lives in the Gilmor Homes, the public housing complex where Gray, 25, was chased down. “People feel as though they can do things and get away with it. I see people walking with guns almost every single day, because they know the police aren’t pulling them up like they used to.”

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said his officers “are not holding back,” despite encountering dangerous hostility in the Western District.

“Our officers tell me that when officers pull up, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them at any time,” Batts said.

Batts provided more details at a City Council meeting Wednesday night, saying officers now fear getting arrested for making mistakes.

“What is happening, there is a lot of levels of confusion in the police organization. There are people who have pain, there are people who are hurt, there are people who are frustrated, there are people who are angry,” Batts said. “There are people, and they’ve said this to me, `If I get out of my car and make a stop for a reasonable suspicion that leads to probable cause but I make a mistake on it, will I be arrested?’ They pull up to a scene and another officer has done something that they don’t know, it may be illegal, will they be arrested for it? Those are things they are asking.”

Baltimore police will be arrested for doing their jobs so Baltimore police are helpless as thugs rule the streets Baltimore O’Malley claims as his record of success.

As Summer begins crime will heat up in Baltimore as Baltimore O’Malley runs from the bloody streets.



Baltimore O’Malley comes to America with the same b.s. we heard from B.O. in 2008. But where B.O. had frozen tenants, Baltimore O’Malley has tenants in flames. Baltimore O’Malley has to answer for Baltimore.

Fifth Circuit Blocks Obama Illegal Illegal Immigration Diktats

Breaking: Fifth Circuit upholds injunction against executive amnesty. Maybe this will be the harvest of tons of straw that breaks the Big Media back and forces open a discussion of Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktats.

For so long we have been one of the few outlets that has reported with seriousness on the ramifications, treacheries, and lies which led a brave Texas judge to oppose Barack Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktats by issuing an injunction against them. The reason proffered by Big Media for scant grudging coverage of such a big story has been that the actions of a federal district judge don’t amount to much. Big Media refused to cover the story saying that maybe if the Fifth Circuit Appeals Court weighed in then maybe the public would be informed by Big Media about Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktats. “Maybe” has just arrived:

Appeals court refuses to lift hold on Obama immigration action

A federal appeals court refused Tuesday to lift a temporary hold on President Obama’s executive action that could shield from deportation as many as 5 million immigrants illegally living in the U.S.

The U.S. Justice Department had asked the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a Texas judge who agreed to temporarily block the president’s plan in February, after 26 states filed a lawsuit alleging Obama’s action was unconstitutional. But two out of three judges on a court panel voted to deny the government’s request.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the government would appeal, either to the full appeals court in New Orleans or to the U.S. Supreme Court. [snip]

Justice Department lawyers sought a stay while they appealed the injunction. They argued that keeping the temporary hold interfered with the Homeland Security Department’s ability to protect the U.S. and secure the nation’s borders. They also said immigration policy is a domain of the federal government, not the states.

But, in Tuesday’s ruling, 5th Circuit judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Walker Elrod denied the stay, saying in an opinion written by Smith, that the federal government lawyers are unlikely to succeed on the merits of that appeal. [snip]

The Justice Department has also asked the 5th Circuit to reverse Hanen’s overall ruling that sided with the states. A decision on that appeal, which will be argued before the court in July, could take months.

Not only has the Fifth Circuit refused to allow Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktats to continue, the Fifth Circuit has signaled that the entire legal underpinnings of Obama’s illegal immigration diktats are, well, illegal and not likely to prevail.

It’s a 42 page decision (which may be read in full HERE) which will likely prevail even if Obama foolishly asks the Fifth Circuit to hear the case en banc. As we predicted, the wheels of justice grind slowly and the courts are finally moving against Obama as he walks the short green mile away from his treacherous occupation of the White House.
