Obama’s 2014 Lie of the Year

Finally, something worth watching has appeared on MSNBC. Of the numberless arrogant lies Obama has sneeringly told to our faces in the course of the year, Glenn Kessler of WaPo has settled on the Lie of the Year:

Oh yes he did dismiss the Islamic State as a JV, just before it poured into the power vacuum he had created in Iraq by prematurely withdrawing our troops.

Hagel has since been fired.

For all his practice, Obama belongs on the JV team for liars.

Susan Douglas, Chair of University of Michigan Department of Communication Studies, Unleashes Spittle-Spewing, Unhinged Denunciation of Republicans

Once again we see why Democrats are so eager to spend any amount of money we don’t have so that everyone can attend college regardless of whether they can afford it or have a real use for it:

A University of Michigan department chairwoman has published an article titled, “It’s Okay To Hate Republicans,” which will probably make all of her conservative students feel really comfortable and totally certain that they’re being graded fairly.

“I hate Republicans,” communications department chairwoman and professor Susan J. Douglas boldly declares in the opening of the piece. “I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal ‘personhood.’”

Don’t try too hard to grasp the mentality of someone who finds even Obama collaborators Mitch McConnell and John Boehner to be insufficiently liberal. You might go insane.

Some might call the nutty professor biased. However, she assures us that her shrill views are the objective truth because they are based on “history and psychological research.”

Hilariously, she spits that Republicans are vile because of their “determined vilification” of others. Tearing at her stringy hair, she shrieks that they have no legitimacy because they have “crafted a political identity that rests on a complete repudiation of the idea that the opposing party and its followers have any legitimacy.”

The headline “It’s Okay to Hate Republicans” is pretty blunt for an academic. Normally they are more nuanced in their demagogic screeds; that is, they disguise their ire and malevolent radicalism under a layer of pretentious B.S. The explanation:

A magazine that published a column by a University of Michigan professor titled “It’s Okay to Hate Republicans” said late Thursday that it had crafted that headline without her knowledge and had swapped it for the original one, “We Can’t All Just Get Along.”

They changed it back, in order to be more subtle.

Eric Holder Dictates That Cross-Dressing on the Job Is a Civil Right

If you are trying to run a business, you obviously need to have a say in how representatives of that business present themselves to the public. But you do not have this right in the Dictatorship of the Depraved:

Attorney General Eric Holder has issued an edict, through a memorandum, that cross dressing and transsexualism [are] now protected under federal civil rights laws which were designed to protect women from sex discrimination. Existing federal law provides no statutory support for treating cross-dressers and transsexuals as the law treats female victims of discrimination.

This means that the Justice Department could now, for example, consider the decision by a school or church to not hire a transvestite as a violation of federal law.

Punishment for those who violate the edict is likely to be severe, considering what Holder’s Injustice Department did to a high school that wouldn’t let a boy show up for class in a miniskirt, pink wig, and stiletto heels:

The school district was forced to pay the transvestite-child $50,000, pay for counseling services with a psychiatrist specializing in “gay, bisexual and transgender youth issues,” hire an expert to review the school’s “gender expression” programs, and hire a second expert to conduct annual training on “gender identity and gender expression” discrimination.

If you plan to put up resistance to the latest insane decree, your business had better have deep pockets; Holder’s resources are as infinite as the federal government’s willingness to run up the national debt. Explicitly Christian businesses will inevitably be targeted by homosexual activists, an alarming practice that Arizona legislators tried and tragically failed to prevent.

At least by now it should be clear to everyone why the fundamental right of freedom of association must be reestablished, and all “civil rights” tyranny that represses it rejected, if we are ever again to refer to this with a straight face as a free country.

Donating to Democrats Wins Official Favor for Felonious Foreigners

America has always been the Land of Opportunity. It used to be that all you had to do to get ahead in this country was work hard and keep your nose clean. Now things are even easier. Just give money to the Democrat Party. Another improvement: you don’t even have to be American.

The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

It was one of several favorable decisions the Obama administration made in recent years involving the Isaías family, which the government of Ecuador accuses of buying protection from Washington and living comfortably in Miami off the profits of a looted bank in Ecuador.

They say a fish rots from the head down. So it is no surprise that the moral decay that has been destroying our country would be most conspicuously in evidence in the White House and Senate.

The family, which has been investigated by federal law enforcement agencies on suspicion of money laundering and immigration fraud, has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to American political campaigns in recent years. During that time, it has repeatedly received favorable treatment from the highest levels of the American government, including from New Jersey’s senior senator [who happens to be a pedophile] and the State Department.

The Obama administration has allowed the family’s patriarchs, Roberto and William Isaías, to remain in the United States, refusing to extradite them to Ecuador. The two brothers were sentenced in absentia in 2012 to eight years in prison, accused of running their bank into the ground and then presenting false balance sheets to profit from bailout funds. In a highly politicized case, Ecuador says the fraud cost the country $400 million.

With that kind of money flying around, it wasn’t long before a welcome mat was placed before Estefanía Isaías, despite her having committed immigration fraud.

American diplomats began enforcing the ban against Ms. Isaías, blocking her from coming to Miami for a job with a communications strategist who had raised up to $500,000 for President Obama.

What happened next illustrates the kind of access and influence available to people with vast amounts of money.

For more than a year, Senator Robert Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, and his staff engaged in a relentless effort to help Ms. Isaías, urging senior government officials, including Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, to waive the ban. The senator’s assistance came even though Ms. Isaías’s family — a major donor to him and other American politicians — does not live in his state.

The Obama administration then reversed its decision and gave Ms. Isaías the waiver she needed to come to the United States — after tens of thousands of dollars in donations from the family poured into Mr. Obama’s campaign coffers.

An email from Mr. Menendez’s office sharing the good news was dated May 15, 2012, one day after, campaign finance records show, Ms. Isaías’s mother gave $40,000 to the Obama Victory Fund, which provided donations to the president and other Democrats. …

In 2012, the Isaías family donated about $100,000 to the Obama Victory Fund. Campaign finance records show that their most generous donations came just before a request to the administration.

One more generous donation and Estefanía can be the US Ambassador to the country of her choice, like the otherwise conspicuously unqualified Noah Mamet (Argentina), Colleen Bradley Bell (Hungary), George Tsunis (Norway), et al. — or maybe even Director of Homeland Security.

Pakistani School Massacre Butchers Were Recent Beneficiaries of Obama’s Prisoner Releases

I tried to find a story even less surprising than Obama normalizing relations with communist Cuba so that it can replace Britain and Israel as an ally. The best I could do was this:

TALIBAN LEADER JUST RELEASED BY OBAMA INVOLVED IN THE PAKISTANI SCHOOL MASSACRE

According to Reuters, only eight days before the Taliban faction known as Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) brutally massacred over 130 school children in Peshawar Pakistan on Tuesday, Obama released the terror group’s second in command, Latif Mehsud.

Cuomo Dictates That Health Insurance Must Pay for Grotesque Sexual Mutilation

It can’t be easy for insurance companies to avoid bankruptcy while trying to do business in a dictatorship of the depraved:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has told New York health insurance companies they must cover sex-change operations and other treatments considered to be “medically necessary” to attempt to change a man or woman’s sex.

The New York Times reports that Cuomo sent a letter to insurance companies indicating that the coverage for such treatments and surgeries stems from state law’s requirement that health insurers provide coverage for psychological disorders.

Cuomo has a reputation for fascistic heavy-handedness. But New York is not alone:

According to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, New York is now the ninth state to require insurance coverage for sex-change treatments and surgery.

No doubt this will soon apply at a national level, forcing us all to pay more for insurance so that lunatics can have their private parts amputated.

Back before liberalism drove our society insane, it was not considered advisable to treat psychological disorders by chemically and surgically disfiguring the insane in support of their morbid delusions. In those days, the government mostly left businesses alone, and didn’t micromanage so as to impose their ideology on every facet of our lives.

Students Sign Petition to Deport Americans in Exchange for Illegal Immigrants

Liberals of the type prevailing on college campuses don’t seem to mind the use of Third World illegal aliens by the Obama Regime and its RINO collaborators to displace the American population. But would they actually sign a petition to deport an American citizen for each of the innumerable illegals Obama has been encouraging to pour across the border?

Yes they would:

Fossil Fuels Plentiful, Yet Electricity Prices Rise Thanks to Moonbattery

Being taken for morons by promoters of the global warming hoax has not been enough to decisively turn people against environmentalists. Maybe going broke and/or shivering in the dark will do the job, even in moonbattery-addled New England:

The New York Times ran an interesting article a few days ago discussing the skyrocketing electricity prices residents of New England are being forced to pay even before the winter season begins.

The article identifies a resident of New Hampshire named John York who paid $376 to power his small printing business this past October. With no change in the amount of his work or his thermostat, his electricity bill climbed to $788 in November – an increase of 110 percent in just one month.

What the article reveals (perhaps unintentionally) are the likely consequences of heavy handed government policies and regulations that distort energy markets and threaten the supply of affordable and reliable energy for consumers.

New England is dependent on natural gas. There is plenty of it, but thanks to red tape there is not enough pipeline capacity to get it where it is needed.

[E]nvironmentalists have opposed any construction of new pipelines that would increase the region’s dependence on fossil fuels. Ironically, increasing the amount of electricity generated from natural gas is a significant component of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and specifically EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan (“Building Block 2”). This lack of adequate pipeline infrastructure needed to comply with EPA’s plan is a concern cited by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) in a recent report.

Too bad Big Government doesn’t spare us the Soviet-style plans and just get out of the way so that people can build pipelines to keep the heat and lights on.

Furthermore, despite claims that renewable sources are now cost-competitive with (or even cheaper than) coal and natural gas, The New York Times piece goes on to explain that the Massachusetts Legislature this past August failed to approve a coordinated regional strategy consisting of new pipelines because “in part…cheap energy would flood in the market and thwart attempts to advance wind and solar projects.” In other words, the legislature decided to keep electricity prices artificially high so that renewable projects could compete with coal and natural gas. Notably, an increased reliance on renewables for electricity generation is also a key component of the Clean Power Plan (“Building Block 3”).

Obama did promise to make electricity prices skyrocket. He and his fellow moonbats are not about to let the worldwide collapse of oil and gas prices stop them.

Hollywood Cowards Pull The Interview; Texas Theater Makes Do

Thanks to the appalling cowardice of the entertainment industry, foreign terrorists and hostile dictatorships can now determine which movies we will be allowed to see:

The FBI has connected North Korea to the Sony Pictures cyberattack, a federal law enforcement source told Fox News Wednesday, hours after the company announced it had scrapped the Dec. 25 release of “The Interview” after a number of major movie chains said they would not show the film. …

AMC Entertainment, Regal Cinemas, Cineplex and Cinemark had opted to drop the movie after the hackers issued threats that implied the theaters showing the movie were terror targets.

It isn’t easy to find any guts in this country nowadays. A good place to look is Texas. The Alamo Drafthouse near Dallas planned to show the movie whether communist tyrants like it or not, but now will have to make do with a replacement:

Via Variety:

“Team America” was co-written by “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Pam Brady and directed by Parker.

Using marionettes, the plot centered on an American paramilitary group stopping a terrorist plot by the late Kim Jong Il, the father of current North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

“The Interview” revolves around Seth Rogen and James Franco’s characters assassinating Kim Jong Un.

Whoever owns the theater should replace Hanoi John Kerry as Secretary of State.

Government Wastes Our Money on “Mindfulness Meditation”

Big Government has been aggressively expanding its ever-encroaching hegemony in the healthcare field. Our government is run largely by kooks. Consequently, “mindfulness meditation” as a medical treatment is gaining a foothold:

“The advantage of this is that it actually doesn’t cost anything,” said Karen May, a vice president at Google, explaining how her company offers “mindfulness” classes to its employees.

Mindfulness is a New Age kind of meditation that focuses on the present moment “non-judgmentally,” tracing its origins to Buddhism. …

Rep. Tim Ryan (D., Ohio), a so-called “rock star among mindfulness evangelists” who earmarked nearly $1 million to teach mindfulness to preschool students in his district. The $982,000 project provided deep breathing exercises, and “Peace Corners” for kids in Youngstown, Ohio.

Wait, I thought she said it doesn’t cost anything. But of course, once Big Government becomes involved, everything costs plenty.

Ryan said he practices mindfulness on the House Budget Committee and hosts weekly meditation sessions for members and staff. No Republicans attend.

Not even Johnny Boehner, although it might help him with his crying jags.

Thanks to the governmentalization of medical research through the National Institutes of Health, mindfulness meditation and related moonbattery are costing taxpayers a fortune. For example:

A “school-based mindfulness and yoga intervention to prevent substance use among disadvantaged, urban youth” is costing $749,751 in Baltimore. Innovation Research and Training, Inc., a social sciences firm in Durham, N.C., is conducting two similar studies for elementary students and high schoolers, costing $457,921, and $199,449, respectively.

IRT’s “Master Mind” course involves “mindful breathing, mindful movements, and mindful journeys.” …

A $42,676 study is using mindfulness to help women drink less during PMS, and another $1,399,153 grant attempts to use the technique to combat “menstrually related mood disorders.”

A $729,352 project is testing the technique as a coping skill to reduce stress for gay men. Obese people can also mindfully meditate to a healthy weight, according to the hypothesis of several NIH grants. …

Yoga and mindfulness is being used for young adults with irritable bowel syndrome ($690,101), youth with bipolar disorder ($358,489), HIV positive youth ($963,315), and teen moms ($649,093).

Even prisoners are getting into mindfulness. A $905,984 study is creating a “culturally tailored, [mindfulness meditation] MM-based relapse prevention intervention for incarcerated substance users.”

Anyone who pays taxes should be approaching the boiling point.

Mindful meditation is being tested to treat migraines ($1,434,134), as a cure for the common cold ($2,192,599), and a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disease ($5,983,580), sickle cell disease ($32,758), Type 1 Diabetes ($2,343,122), Type 2 Diabetes ($706,244), and high blood pressure ($734,857).

Parenting with mindfulness encourages “nonjudgmental acceptance of self and child,” costing $3,137,880.

It would be species-centric of us to apply the pricey benefits of mindfulness meditation only to human beings:

One study compares using mindfulness to stress-reduction techniques for mice ($414,907).

On and on goes the list of lunatic waste, even as the nation hurtles toward bankruptcy.

There are dozens more, indicating that the feds are spending at least $100,183,860 on research related to mindfulness.

Just think how much it would cost us to have the government pursue legitimate medical treatments for these ailments. By now the economy would have already collapsed.

When Obama’s policy of specifically facilitating immigration from countries plagued by Ebola eventually leads to an outbreak, we will learn how much it costs to apply mindfulness meditation to a flesh-eating virus.

Mass Execution of Women Who Declined to Be Islamic State Sex Slaves

Feminists may be irritatingly shrill, but they serve an important purpose by raising the alarm when women are poorly treated. For example, consider this story:

At least 150 women who refused to marry militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, were executed in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights said.

According to a ministry statement released Tuesday, ISIL militants carried out a number of attacks in Fallujah and buried the victims in mass graves in one of the city’s neighborhoods.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said.

No doubt this will cause the feminist movement to finally sound the alarm on the threat to women’s rights posed by Islam. Otherwise, people might get the idea that feminism, like environmentalism and “black lives matter” moonbattery, has nothing to do with its surface rhetoric, but is simply a means to increased power for leftists, who used to openly admit that “the issue is never the issue.”

FLOTUS Changes Her Story Regarding Target Encounter So As to Exacerbate Racial Angst

During a 2011 publicity stunt, Michelle Obama disguised herself as a commoner and went shopping at Target, in an stilted attempt to make herself appear to be at one with the unwashed masses who labor to sustain her extravagant lifestyle. Here’s how she described the adventure on Letterman shortly afterward (via Soopermexican):

“That’s my Target run. I went to Target,” she said. “I thought I was undercover. I have to tell you something about this trip though. No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something,’ and I thought, ‘Oh, cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not.”

As the audience laughed, she went on, “And the only thing she said — I reached up, ’cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down — she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. I felt so good. … She had no idea who I was. I thought, as soon as she walked up — I was with my assistant, and I said, ‘This is it, it’s over. We’re going to have to leave.’ She just needed the detergent.”

Good feelings all around. That was the point of the Target mini-spectacle.

Under progressive Hope & Change, as in the Soviet Union, the future is certain; it’s the past that keeps changing. Obama’s crumbling presidency has forced him to fall back on the neurotic racial guilt that got him elected. The Michael Brown/Eric Garner spectacle was contrived with help from his fellow left-wing agitators and media allies. Obama and the Bitter Half, the two most racially privileged people in the history of the USA, actually presented themselves to People Magazine as victims of racism.

The Target encounter had to be revised. Here’s what Mooch recently told People:

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

Now the idea is to portray America as the land of nasty white racists and herself as the victim.

There is truly nothing beneath the Obamas when it comes to using race as a weapon against Americans.

Taliban Runs With Democrats’ Phony “Torture” Report

Dianne Feinstein’s bogus “torture” report may not have gone far enough in its condemnation of America to please the liberal thought-shapers at Salon, but the Taliban, who as Islamic terrorists will be among its beneficiaries, seem quite pleased:

The Taliban has called for an international investigation into the human rights standards of the United States after the Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats released a lengthy report criticizing enhanced interrogation techniques used in the war on terror.

Under Taliban rule, Afghans were subject to public floggings or executions for “violations” such as women wearing nail polish or exposing any skin, or both teachers and students trying to learn in underground schools. Women had zero rights and weren’t allowed to leave their homes except with a male relative. Nowadays, the Taliban commits acts of violence against activist or working women, and the Pakistani Taliban shot Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai in 2012 while she was going to school.

But according to our ruling class, all of that pales in comparison to KSM getting water poured on his face.

Sounding like a New York Times editorial, a Taliban statement chastises the Great Satan:

“…Unfortunately America’s intelligence violations continue unabated to this day. Even today America and its intelligence arms continue to operate black prisons throughout their main centers in Afghanistan. These operatives continue to violate the basic rights of ordinary citizens, they carry out night raids on civilian homes, women and children are regularly held without charges, subject them to degrading treatment, carry out indiscriminate bombings, and subject ordinary Afghans to all forms of inhumane treatment.”

Great tip. I’m sure DiFi will get right on it.

The Taliban claimed the U.S. has “planted chosen individuals inside Afghanistan’s intelligence agencies as well as the local police and warlords and use these individuals to commit unspoken barbarities including kidnappings, rape and torture.”

Now they are starting to sound like John Kerry.

The terrorists smugly drone on:

“We call on the international community as well as those international organizations that call themselves champions of human rights, to examine America’s ongoing policy in light of these human rights standards. These human rights abuses, especially violations of international humanitarian laws, continue to be committed by American installed agents in the Kabul regime. If these human rights organizations fail to stop these abuses [yap yap yap yap].”

In related news, the Taliban just attacked a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, killing 141 people, 132 of whom were children. Maybe Senate Democrats will find that worthy of a scathing report too, but I doubt it. Maybe Obama will stop releasing top Taliban commanders from Club Gitmo for a while, but I doubt that too.

Queers of Color Hang Blacks in Effigy at UC Berkeley

Given the never-ending barrage of hate hoaxes, by now you know that if blacks are hung in effigy on a liberal college campus, it is the work of moonbats — unless you are an educrat, in which case you might suspect that the KKK has infiltrated Berkeley:

The University of California at Berkeley, already fired up over recent protests related to the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, has been rocked by controversy after three effigies of lynching victims appeared around campus.

After initially going unclaimed, responsibility for the act has now been assumed by an anonymous collective of artists who say they wanted to draw a link between current police practices and past brutality.

The effigies, discovered on Saturday morning, were life-size cardboard cutouts of historic lynching victims, such as Laura Nelson, a black woman killed in Oklahoma in 1911. The effigies also carried the words “I Can’t Breathe,” a reference to Eric Garner’s last words before he died following a confrontation with New York police. Two of the effigies were quickly taken down by police, while another was removed by a student.

Initially, there were no indications of who was responsible, causing the administration at UC Berkeley to release a cautious statement on Sunday labeling the effigies “deeply disturbing” and promising to work to improve the climate on campus.

Later on Sunday, however, an unnamed collective of “queer black and POC [person of color] artists” placed notices around campus claiming responsibility for placing the effigies.

What a relief. Now the moonbat educrats don’t have to be deeply disturbed anymore.

Obama and Mooch Whimper to People Magazine That They Are the Victims of Racism

“Let them eat cake!” Maria Antoinette is said to have proclaimed. Her modern incarnation puts it differently: “Let me eat my cake and have it too!” Despite the most conspicuously extravagant lifestyle since Russia’s czars were overthrown, the Obamas still portray themselves as put-upon victims of racist America:

The protective bubble that comes with the presidency – the armored limo, the Secret Service detail, the White House – shields Barack and Michelle Obama from a lot of unpleasantness. But their encounters with racial prejudice aren’t as far in the past as one might expect. And they obviously still sting.

“I think people forget that we’ve lived in the White House for six years,” the first lady told PEOPLE, laughing wryly, along with her husband, at the assumption that the first family has been largely insulated from coming face-to-face with racism.

“Before that, Barack Obama was a black man that lived on the South Side of Chicago, who had his share of troubles catching cabs,” Mrs. Obama said in the Dec. 10 interview appearing in the new issue of PEOPLE.

I’m guessing not too many white guys drive cabs on the South Side of Chicago — at least, not many do it for long. But that isn’t likely to occur to People’s readership.

In a 30-minute conversation, the president and Mrs. Obama candidly added their stories to the national discussion of race and racial profiling that was sparked by [i.e., contrived on the pretext of] the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York.

It should be noted that Obama and the Bitter Half are in a position to take multi-$million vacations at other people’s expense explicitly because they are black; Obama had no other notable qualifications to become president. Yet we are expected to hate ourselves for oppressing them.
