Make Obama Own It

The reason it is absolutely essential that patriots turn out on November 4 to keep the House in Republican hands and pry the Senate loose from Harry Reid’s is that a GOP legislature could force Obama to take personal responsibility for the first time in his life by making him veto everything the American people want. Bill Whittle explains:

Yes I know McConnell and Boehner are detestable RINOs. But Reid is far worse, and Obama is worse still. We may never undo the damage Obama has done to this country, but we can at least put it on the record who did it, so that his name will curl lips and burden Democrats for generations to come. The alternative is to give him another two years to take cover behind Harry Reid, who will continue to block all constructive legislation on his behalf if given the chance.

Excruciating Debbie Wasserman Schultz Video

Contrary to popular belief, the failed Moonbat Messiah has been campaigning in competitive Senate races around the country. This information comes straight from the Chairmoonbat of the Democrat National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Which races? Let’s ask Debbie:

I’ll take that to mean: imaginary races only.

Look alive, Raymond Buckley. Your fellow Demorrhoids will be in the market for a new DNC chair just as soon as the November bloodbath is over.

It says quite a bit about both Obama and Democrats that even an irresponsible degenerate scoundrel who was impeached for committing felonies while in office is an asset on the campaign trail, but the erstwhile Anointed One is not.

White Privilege Isn’t Just for White People Anymore

Campus moonbats don’t much like it when someone lifts the rock so that others can see them squiggling repulsively in the fetid dirt of their grotesque ideology. When the son of a Syrian immigrant attempted to film a university event promoting sexual deviancy among blacks, he was denounced for exerting “white privilege”:

On Monday, October 6th, MNSU [Minnesota State University] Mankato held an event to show The New Black, a documentary “that tells the story of how the African-American community is grappling with the LGBTQ rights issue in light of the recent marriage equality movement and the fight over civil rights.”

“The film documents activists, families and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar—the black church and reveals the Christian right wing’s strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda,” according to the film’s website.

Sounds like what you would expect college students to be steeped in these days. But brainwashers don’t want knowledge of their activities getting out to the wider society that is forced to subsidize the lunatic asylums that now pass for universities.

A panel discussion followed the screening with Dr. Shannon Miller, assistant professor in the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at MNSU, and Andrea Jenkins, an openly transgender Minneapolis activist, writer, poet, educator, and performer.

In video obtained by Campus Reform, Dr. Shannon Miller asks an attendee filming the event why he was doing so. The attendee, who wishes to remain anonymous, informed her he was just filming the event because he found it interesting. Dr. Miller accused him of disrupting the event shortly before the video cuts.

The video resumes during a confrontation with an individual the videographer identified to Campus Reform as Dr. Miller’s graduate assistant. The assistant, who was seated directly behind the attendee, accused him of suppressing people’s rights. When the attendee asked how he was suppressing people’s rights by filming, Andrea Jenkins jumped in.

“She’s not saying you are suppressing people’s rights, but that you are exerting your white privilege,” Jenkins said.

When the guy filming informed them of his nonwhite racial background, Professor Miller snarled, “Thank you for your time, now get out of here.”

Lacking effective resistance, progressives will soon be shoving anyone they suspect of disagreeing with them into gas chambers as they bark mindlessly about “white privilege.”

Not exactly an open marketplace of ideas.

Obama Keeps Promise Regarding Skyrocketing Energy Prices

Obama keeps his promises. You just have to distinguish between promises and brazen lies that he doesn’t expect or even want his supporters to believe. For example, when he made a “firm pledge” not to raise taxes on the middle class, rich liberals knew he was lying, or they wouldn’t have supported him, considering that the middle class is where the money is that they wanted to confiscate and “redistribute.” But when he said he would fundamentally transform America, that was a genuine promise. No one can deny that America has been fundamentally transformed into a country that it is harder to take pride in that it was 6 years ago. When he promised that he would cause energy prices to “skyrocket,” that was a real promise too. Again, he delivered:

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the energy price index has been higher than the overall Consumer Price Index since December 2010 — 46 straight months and counting.

To say this is a historical anomaly is putting it mildly. Almost without exception, energy prices climbed more slowly than the overall CPI since 1957, the first year in the BLS’ monthly energy price data.

Even in the wake of the “energy crisis,” the energy index barely topped the CPI. And while the 2008 gasoline price spike pushed energy costs up, it lasted for only a short time. When Obama took office, the energy price index was 15% below the overall CPI.

Since then, gasoline prices have been stuck above $3 a gallon while electricity prices climb. In the first half of this year, they jumped 3.2% — the highest on record since 2009.

There has been a massive boom in US shale oil and gas production where energy companies have managed to avoid federal restrictions. Saudi Arabia has had to cut production to prop up oil prices. How does Obama manage to overcome an abundant supply of energy? He has his bureaucratic ways.

Oil production on federal lands has dropped 6%, according to a Congressional Research Service report. Obama continues to block the Keystone XL Pipeline, and he’s planning new smog rules that will dramatically raise the cost of energy production.

The EPA’s greenhouse-gas rules could be the death knell for coal — which generates almost 40% of the nation’s electricity.

Driving up the price of energy will eventually increase the price of everything that it requires energy to produce — that is, everything. Therefore, it lowers our standard of living. It also increases costs to businesses that are already staggering under the weight of the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world, which results in higher unemployment.

Yet again we see that voting for Obama was an act of malice.

Drunken Anti-Gun State Senator Arrested Among Ferguson Mob With Loaded Gun

The hypocrisy of liberals is like the national debt they have run up — too vast to comprehend:

Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several “anti-gun” bills in her state, was arrested Monday night during a protest outside of the Ferguson Police Department. However, it’s what police officers found on her that is raising eyebrows.

Nasheed was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun and extra rounds of ammunition, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. She also refused to take a breathalyzer test after officers determined she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” sources told KMOV-TV.

It’s okay, State Senator Nasheed says she needs a gun for self-defense. We who are not part of the government don’t, because our lives are expendable.

United Nations: American Blacks Should Not Have to Pay Their Utility Bills

Key to the racial caste system liberals are trying to impose is the insane concept of disparate impact.

Here’s how it works. Say you have 10 ants and 10 grasshoppers. As in Aesop’s fable, the ants diligently store up food all summer while the grasshoppers hip-hop around and indulge in irresponsible dissipation. Then comes winter, and it is discovered that for some mysterious reason that could only be ascribed to discrimination, ants have more stored food than grasshoppers. Therefore, the storage of food is found to have a disparate impact on grasshoppers. The solution: force ants to turn over their food.

The odious and largely American-financed United Nations has been putting its nose into our business by applying this morally deranged concept to Detroit. Via Weasel Zippers (so that you don’t contract any nasty diseases at HuffPo):

United Nations experts are calling for a federal investigation of the water shutoffs that have affected thousands of Detroiters, expressing concern over the number of low-income black residents who are living without running water. …

“We were deeply disturbed to observe the indignity people have faced and continue to live with in one of the wealthiest countries in the world and in a city that was a symbol of America’s prosperity [before Coleman Young and other black leftists destroyed it by driving out all the white people],” read a joint statement Monday from Catarina de Albuquerque, the UN’s special rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, and Leilani Farha, whose role addresses adequate housing and the right to non-discrimination in housing. [...]

“We were also distressed to learn from the low-income African American residents of the impossible choices they are being compelled to make — to either pay their rent or their medical bill, or to pay their water bill,” Farha and de Albuquerque said.

“We recommend that the Federal Government immediately undertake an investigation into the water shut-offs to determine if they are having a disproportionate impact on African Americans and other groups protected against discrimination,” the two experts said.

No doubt Eric Holder’s Department of Social Justice is eager to comply.

Tough luck if you are white. You have to pay not only your bills, but the bills of those who are “protected against discrimination” too. It’s a raw deal, not being discriminated against.

Catarina says expecting blacks to pay their utility bills is an “indignity.”

Homeland Security Raids Panty Store, Confiscates Women’s Underwear

The Department of Homeland Security is among the largest of the federal government’s many gargantuan agencies. Since it is doing little to defend the homeland from the serious threats posed by the porous border, Islam, and Ebola, some may wonder how the many employees of DHS kill time while waiting to collect their generous pensions. This story gives an idea:

In an underwear-related [matter] that is apparently a matter of national importance, the Department of Homeland Security descended upon a women’s lingerie shop in Kansas City, Mo., according to The Wichita Eagle. The federal officers were there to stop the business – Birdies Panties – from making undies with the Royals logo during the team’s Cinderella run to the World Series.

The boyshorts-style ladies unmentionables were created as a show of support for the Royals – playing in their first World Series since 1985 – but the design which said “Take the Crown” used an interlocking “KC” very much like the team’s official logo.

According to the Wichita Eagle, “They placed the underwear in an official Homeland Security bag.” I’d rather not think about what Jeh Johnson plans to do with the confiscated panties.

Apparently we don’t need local police anymore.

A matter for Homeland Security.

Russia Continues to Test America’s Weakness Under Obama

Liberalism turns America against itself. Anything turned against itself is weak. Weakness begets aggression. Consequently, Obama’s presidency has inevitably led to this:

Russian military provocations have increased so much over the seven months since Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine that Washington and its allies are scrambling defense assets on a nearly daily basis in response to air, sea and land incursions by Vladimir Putin’s forces.

Not only is Moscow continuing to foment unrest in Eastern Ukraine, U.S. officials and regional security experts say Russian fighter jets are testing U.S. reaction times over Alaska and Japan’s ability to scramble planes over its northern islands — all while haunting Sweden’s navy and antagonizing Estonia’s tiny national security force.

The White House months ago leveled economic sanctions on several Russian businesses and political players, and recent weeks have seen President Obama intensify his rhetoric toward Moscow. But many in Washington’s national security community say the response is simply not firm enough and that, as a result, Mr. Putin actually feels emboldened to push the envelope — Cold War-style.

The West won the Cold War because it was led by the likes of Reagan, Thatcher, and Jean Paul II. But now Russia is back, like Jason Voorhees risen from the bottom of the lake just in time for Halloween. Obama, Cameron, and Francis are no match for Putin.

“What’s going on is a radical escalation of aggressive Russian muscle flexing and posturing designed to demonstrate that Russia is no longer a defeated power of the Cold War era,” says Ariel Cohen, who heads the Center for Energy, National Resources and Geopolitics at the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security in Washington.

“The more we retreat, the more we are encouraging Russia to behave in a more aggressive way,” Mr. Cohen said. “We need to be engaging more deeply with our Central Asian allies, but instead we are in the process of abandoning turf to Russia, and it’s wrong — it’s against our interests geopolitically to let Russia feel that they all of a sudden have won all the turf without firing a shot.”

But that’s exactly what Russia did — by simply standing by and watching us self-destruct to the point of electing Obama.

Russian aggression — like Islamic terrorism, Ebola, Third World welfare colonization, and every other serious problem we face — is an opportunistic infection. We could deal with all of them, if not for the underlying disease that makes us vulnerable: moonbattery.

Rush Shines a Little Light on Democrat Voter Fraud

At last, the crucial issue of Democrat voter fraud is starting to get some mainstream attention:

Rush Limbaugh believes that Democrats aren’t as popular as they might seem, so why they keep holding power struck him as confusing. But in reaction to a report about possible voter fraud in Cook County, Limbaugh suspected that––voter fraud––must be a big reason for them continuing to win.

Limbaugh cited polls, as well as less-than-impressive book sales for Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo‘s recent books, to say Democrats aren’t as popular as the media might build them up to be. …

And to him, for some Democrats to be doing well in their elections so far “doesn’t make any sense.” And while he didn’t directly blame voter fraud in every case for Democrats holding power, Limbaugh did say 1) “that kind of stuff is happening all over the country, I’m convinced of it,” and 2) “I’m really starting to be curious about the degree, the amount of voter fraud taking place out there.”

As ignored by most everyone, systematic fraud played a major part in Obama’s reelection, particularly in the key swing states Pennsylvania and Ohio. This year fraud seems to be the only strategy Democrats have (see here and here), other than pretending not to have been in lock step behind Obama and trying to whip up black turnout with outrageously inflammatory propaganda.

Hopefully El Rushbo and others will turn up the heat on voter fraud until Republicans feel pressured to do something about it. Otherwise elections will continue to lose credibility until no one takes the results seriously anymore, as in other countries run by socialists.

Professor Proclaims We Must “Terminate Industrial Civilization” Because of Global Warming

When it comes to the global warming hoax, neo-Marxists like Obama who want to use it as a pretext to jack taxes through the stratosphere and incrementally impose a Soviet-style command and control economy are the moderates. Extremes exist even further to the left. The place to find them is academia, where developing young minds are guided:

Mankind is doomed unless we immediately de-industrialize and slash carbon dioxide emissions, according to Guy McPherson, emeritus professor from the University of Arizona.

McPherson appeared on Paul Henry’s New Zealand-based talk program to warn that global warming was “irreversible” and the only way to stop it is to “terminate industrial civilization.”

“I think there’s ample chance we can save the living planet, but not our species. … Some people think that this whole thing is about us,” McPherson told the Paul Henry Show. “We just showed up… I don’t think this is about us, I think it’s about the living planet.”

Professor McPherson’s proposal is straightforward:

“The only way to stop runaway climate change is to terminate industrial civilization,” he said.

Not even going back to a hand-to-mouth existence that could sustain only a small percentage of the current human population will be enough to save us from the fictional crisis.

When asked [if] there was any way mankind could stave off extinction from global warming, McPherson ominously responded all “we can do is enjoy and create moments of joy while we are here” because “humans will reach the end of the line in a relatively short time.”

Shouts the nutty professor:

“I’m suggesting we make this about the other organisms.”

This is moonbattery taken to its logical conclusion. Treason is reflexive with liberals; they will always side with the other. That’s why our liberal overlords side with blacks against whites, non-Americans against Americans, Muslims against non-Muslims, the perverted against the normal, et cetera. It is only to be expected that they would consider the interests of “other organisms” to be paramount.

If satanic squids invaded from outer space to attack earthly organisms, liberals would drop their affection for polar bears and delta smelts and revere the satanic squids.

The mild (and welcome) warming trend that gave birth to the global warming hoax ended 18 years ago. But a belief system that could conceivably be exploited to “terminate” our civilization is too precious to give up on just because our thermometers have debunked it.

Fauxcahontas Proclaims System Is Rigged — While Stumping for Al Franken, Who Was Elected Through Voter Fraud

This is rich, considering the recent indications that Democrats are relying on voter fraud to stave off disaster in next month’s elections:

While revving up voters for Sen. Al Franken, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren had a clear message critical of the GOP.

Speaking in front of more than 400 people at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., the Democrat proclaimed: “The game is rigged, and the Republicans rigged it,” according to the Washington Post.

Maybe Warren wasn’t talking about voter fraud, but it still takes a deaf ear to discuss rigged games while stumping for a former professional clown who obtained his Senate seat through brazen election fraud.

Relax, Dem Congresscritters Say ISIS Is No Threat

After this week’s terror attacks in Canada and the evidently ISIS-inspired beheading in Oklahoma City, some are worried that Islam might yet again result in senselessly spilled American blood. This concern is unreasonable, having been dismissed by two well-established members of Congress.

Charlie Rangel, the former Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee who is so formidable that he cannot be dislodged from Congress despite having committed various crimes, assures us that ISIS is no threat to American national security, even in light of Islamic State terrorists closing in on Baghdad for a possible attack on our embassy:

José Díaz-Balart: Meanwhile, we are seeing a battle in Kobani, seeing Baghdad being surrounded, seeing threats on the Green Zone in Baghdad by ISIS. What do you think we as a government should be doing and are we doing enough?

Rangel: Well, one thing, I don’t see where that’s a threat to our national security.

Speaking of Baghdad, hard left congresscritter Baghdad Jim McDermott (who earned his nickname by traveling to Iraq to propagandize for the enemy in the run-up to the Iraq War) says Muslims are no more of a threat than Ebola:

“Everybody’s hair was on fire about Ebola and suddenly a shooting occurs in Canada and suddenly our hair is on fire that somehow the Muslim hordes are going to come and get us; there’s no evidence for that.”

All is well, people. Go back to your sitcoms.

Election 2014: Desperate Dems Take Chicago Way Nationwide

Resorting to shameful tactics to whip up black turnout isn’t going to prevent Democrats from having to pay the piper for their appalling misrule. But massive voter fraud might. For an idea of what to expect, turn to the Chicago-dominated political cesspool that spawned Obama:

State lawmakers enacted a series of one-time changes to make early voting easier for this election only, leading some critics to contend the move was made for political reasons tied to the hotly contested governor race between Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican challenger Bruce Rauner.

These changes are not for the better:

[P]eople voting early this year will no longer have to show an ID. Voters will also be able to register to vote and cast a ballot on Election Day — what is known as same-day registration.

This is a well-known recipe for widescale fraud that has already been tried in neighboring Wisconsin with predictable results.

Other Chicago Way tactics include someone seeing to it that the Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Chad Grimm appears on the ballot, but not the Green Party candidate. The Operating Engineers Union donated a 6-figure sum to Grimm, with the obvious intent of drawing votes from Republicans.

Most brazen of all, we have already seen how Cook County voting machines may count your vote for the Democrat no matter who you vote for.

We are all used to tales of terror regarding Chicago politics. But with Obama’s ascension to the White House, this phenomenon has gone national. Not long ago, Colorado was a red state — i.e., a decent, wholesome place. Now look what’s going on amid the clouds of marijuana smoke:

In 2013, a new Democratic state legislature rammed through a sweeping and highly controversial election law and convinced Democratic governor John Hickenlooper to sign it. The law, known as House Bill 1303, makes Colorado the only state in the country to combine two radical changes in election law: 1) abolishing the traditional polling place and having every voter mailed a ballot and 2) establishing same-day registration, which allows someone to appear at a government office and register and vote on the same day without showing photo ID or any other verifiable evidence that establishes identity. If they register online a few days before, no human being ever has to show up to register or vote. A few keystrokes can create a voter and a “valid” ballot. Once a ballot cast under same-day registration is mixed in with others, there is no way to separate it out if the person who voted is later found ineligible. Other jurisdictions that have same-day registration, such as Washington, D.C., treat the vote as a provisional ballot pending verification. Colorado immediately counts the vote. …

Having suffered stinging defeat at the polls, advocates of same-day registration were careful in 2013 to have it approved by the state legislature instead of the people. They rammed through the bill without any bipartisan input. It allowed those running voter-registration drives to delay delivery of the registrations they accepted, reducing the time available to check the data on them. It stripped county clerks of the ability to review new voter registrations and forced every Colorado voter to receive a mail ballot, including 800,000 who had clearly expressed their desire to vote only at polling places. Ballots will be mailed to people who don’t vote and no longer live in Colorado, because the law makes it very difficult to remove names from the voting rolls.

No reasonable person could deny that the glaringly obvious intent of this bill was to facilitate voter fraud, which always benefits Democrats because they tend to be the kind of people who cheat, whereas Republicans tend to be the kind of people who play by the rules. There is a fundamental moral difference between those who want to spend other people’s money and those who just want to keep what they have earned.

To further encourage fraud,

All mail-in ballots in Colorado will be ripe for abuse because “ballot harvesters” are allowed to go door-to-door and collect up to ten ballots with no effective enforcement if they collect more and deliver them at other times. … The potential for harvesters to pressure voters to turn over ballots, open ballot envelopes, alter ballots, or even throw them away is real.

You can be sure opportunities for fraud will be exploited. James O’Keefe recently established the willingness of liberal political operatives in Colorado to obtain Democrat votes by any means necessary.

Meanwhile, in another state that was only recently red,

With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heat, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

Most likely this is the tip of an illegal alien iceberg with the potential to pierce the hulls of Republican campaigns.

After 2012, Democrats figured out that Republicans do not have the spine to call them on election fraud. Consequently you can expect it to become ever more blatant until the very concept of elections collapses into farce, as in other banana republics.

No need for legitimate elections; the oligarchy knows better than voters.
