Via LMAObama, on a tip from TED.
What does it say about the perverse mentality that put Obama in the White House that not even the media responsible for installing him there could stop making Freudian slips mixing him up with America’s most mortal enemy, even years into his administration? A look back at Osama’s I mean Obama’s moment of glory, following his gutless I mean gutsy call:

“Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism. I believe in capitalism, and I understand there have to be rules. And they have to be consistently enforced.’ That’s what I think is at stake in this election.”
That’s a hefty assignment, the salvation of capitalism, but Democratic strategists, while cringing at the grandiosity of the statement, say she articulates her vision for the assignment as well as any candidate.
Massachusetts Democrats might forgive her for saving capitalism and elect her to the Senate anyway based on her two qualifications: being mother of the Occupy Wall Street movement and first nursing mother to take the bar exam in New Jersey.
Comrade Obama’s contempt for businesses too small to have a seat at his corporatist table is legendary. To judge by roadside signs, the feelings are reciprocated:
Obamunism has forced us to choose one or the other. Who does the country more good — small business or Big Government?
The subversion of the Democrat Party by communists is effectively complete, as confirmed by congresscritter Joseph Crowley (D-NY):
“To be a millionaire in this country, it is the greatest country the world has known. It is a privilege. And I think most people get that. You work hard, you get ahead, make a living and you contribute back to this country and make it a better country.”
That is to say, you work hard not to achieve your own objectives, but so that the wealth you create can be confiscated by bureaurats like Crowley, who fundamentally transform this into a “better” country by vastly expanding the size and scope of the federal government. Whatever they refrain from stealing is a “privilege.”
Here’s something most Americans really do get, unless this country is already lost: our money belongs to us, not the parasites in Washington.

The picture below was taken inside a North Carolina state government office. Incredibly, this was evidently not meant as parody:
The Moonbat Messiah is now established as the God of Bloated Big Government. To get an idea of what sort of depraved and blasphemous rituals bureaucrats might perform before such a shrine, refer to the General Services Administration.

The New Black Panthers is a cult of fascistic maniacs who make no secret of their ultimate objective: kill all Caucasians. As we’ve already seen (here and here and here and here), Barack Hussein Obama, who barked about his hatred of whites in Dreams From My Father, is unsurprisingly on excellent terms with them. A ruling from US District Court Judge Reggie Walton should make your hair stand on end:
The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision. Surely the public has an interest in documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision-making.
The New Black Panthers case stems from a Election Day 2008 incident where two members of the New Black Panther Party were filmed outside a polling place intimidating voters and poll watchers by brandishing a billy club. Justice Department lawyers investigated the case, filed charges, and when the Panthers failed to respond, a federal court in Philadelphia entered a “default” against all the Panthers defendants. But after Obama was sworn in, the Justice Department reversed course, dismissed charges against three of the defendants, and let the fourth off with a narrowly tailored restraining order.
It has now been confirmed that Obama’s political flunkies spiked a case against the most appalling race-based voter intimidation this side of the progressive utopia Zimbabwe. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch draws the obvious conclusion:
“The decision shows that we can’t trust the Obama Justice Department to fairly administer our nation’s voting and election laws.”
2012 promises to be an election that would make the Third World’s shabbiest banana republic proud.

Even with the hot summer, only the diehards are still taking the global warming farce seriously, as it becomes ever more obvious that unscrupulous authorities have been lying to us to advance their Big Government agenda. Yet another egregious example:
A reanalysis of U.S. surface station temperatures has been performed using the recently WMO [ World Meteorological Organization]-approved Siting Classification System devised by METEO-France’s Michel Leroy. The new siting classification more accurately characterizes the quality of the location in terms of monitoring long-term spatially representative surface temperature trends. The new analysis demonstrates that reported 1979-2008 U.S. temperature trends are spuriously doubled, with 92% of that over-estimation resulting from erroneous NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] adjustments of well-sited stations upward. &hellip
The USHCN [United States Historical Climatology Network] is one of the main metrics used to gauge the temperature changes in the United States. The first wide scale effort to address siting issues, Watts, (2009), a collated photographic survey, showed that approximately 90% of USHCN stations were compromised by encroachment of urbanity in the form of heat sinks and sources, such as concrete, asphalt, air conditioning system heat exchangers, roadways, airport tarmac, and other issues. This finding was backed up by an August 2011 U.S. General Accounting Office investigation and report titled: Climate Monitoring: NOAA Can Improve Management of the U.S. Historical Climatology Network.
The results of siting thermometers in scorching hot urban parking lots and other tricks for fudging the data:
a spurious doubling of U.S. mean temperature trends in the 30 year data period covered by the study from 1979–2008.
Don’t worry, moonbats. None of this will stop Obama from using the EPA to inflict Cap & Trade through the backdoor, imposing central economic planning and further crippling the economy in the name of the lie that is manmade climate change.

Maybe the no-brainer decision to allow his betters to kill Osama bin Laden after W’s policies had allowed them to track him down was gutsy on Obama’s part after all. True, 999 out of any random 1,000 Americans would have made the same decision in a heartbeat, and without lawyerly wording setting up Admiral William McRaven to take the fall if something went wrong. But it obviously wasn’t easy for Barry to go against the wishes of his teleprompter programmer Valerie Jarrett:
In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.
Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.
Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision.
What a catastrophic farce this presidency has been. If reality ever pops their bubbles of smug self-delusion, liberals will cringe with shame.
Even as Western Civilization collapses into moral decay and socialist insolvency, progressives continue to push boldly forward toward utopia. The latest milestone in the path of progress:
Oxford University has rewritten the laws governing its strict academic dress code following concerns that they were unfair towards transgender students.
Under the new regulations, students taking exams or attending formal occasions will no longer have to wear ceremonial clothing that is specific to their gender.
It will mean men will be able to sit tests in skirts and stockings and women will have the option of wearing suits and bow ties.
In all seriousness, this story is on the level. The objective on the part of educrats is to pander to Oxford’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer Society.
Liberals are good at something besides choking the economy to death after all: self-parody.

Nothing could be more predictable. The white genocide that has characterized the hellish socialist regime in Zimbabwe is spreading to the quintessential politically correct utopia, South Africa. Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch US reports:
“We at Genocide Watch have enough suspicion that there may be an organised effort at a genocide in South Africa, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.” …
He also undertook to take all the information he had gathered on his fact-finding tour in South Africa to Samantha Power, head of the US Atrocities Prevention Board, as well as to the FBI’S Genocide Prevention Unit.
Somehow I doubt a flaming moonbat like Samantha Power is going to take much interest, despite the recent violence and president Jacob Zuma of Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress urging the public to kill Boers. She doesn’t seem to know what the word genocide means.
Stanton offers wise advice to South Africans:
“For God’s sake don’t ever give up your guns, despite the gun laws.”
Wiser still would be a recommendation to get out of the country as soon as possible — although eventually there will be nowhere left to run.
Those with strong stomachs are referred to Pat Dollard for graphic examples of what moonbattery has wrought in this formerly civilized country. No doubt the New York Times will be able to find a “golden lining” to the bloodshed — as it has with the genocide, socialist thuggery, and ensuing starvation in Zimbabwe.
Incredibly, the failing propaganda rag that has devoted the last four years to hyping Barack the Metrosexual Weenie is screaming from its cover in extra large type that Mitt Romney is a “wimp.” If they really want to do cover stories on wimpy politicians, they could find a better candidate than Mitt:
No wonder this collapsing self-parody of an establishment dinosaur publication will soon be digital only, a major milestone on the road to the tar pits.
Sometimes enough steam builds up that you have to actually do something about what’s happening around us. YPolitic offers a chance to get involved. Sponsored post:
With so many significant and historical elections only months away, there’s no better time to become engaged in the political discussion than now. That’s why we think you should all check out YPolitic, a new online social platform exclusively dedicated to the world of politics.
YPolitic has created a new platform that enables its users to interact directly with their local and national politicians while providing them with the latest political news (both local and national.) Through YPolitic, users can create and circulate online petitions about issues that are important to them and send them directly to any targeted politician, participate in polls, and debate other users on hot topic issues.
In addition, YPolitic users can track any local or national political races in real-time, track polling data and race results, investigate the voting records of politicians, compare candidates’ views on the issues in any political race, and make online donations to support their favorite politician.
Most importantly, YPolitic serves as a one-stop-shop where users can let their voice be heard and truly become engaged in the political process on both the local and national stages.
The “Y” in YPolitic represents “Your Voice, Your Choice, Your Politics”. According to founder Preston Byrd, “The political system truly belongs to the people and it is the people’s voice that should be heard throughout their cities, states and in Washington. YPolitic is a non-partisan platform that believes a true democracy is one that welcomes every voice and every idea.”
Making your voice heard beats yelling at the TV set.
Time for an official update to the Newspeak dictionary. The words teenager and teen have been redefined to mean “black hooligan involved in rioting, looting, or mob violence.” An example of proper usage from the city that gave us Obama:
A mob of more than 20 teenagers descended on a trendy Wicker Park shop on Saturday and made off with more than $3,000 worth of jeans.
It took cops 30 minutes to respond to the 911 call by the storeowner, who at least maintained his sense of humor:
Luke Cho said he hopes the [video] images help police find the robbers, or maybe even shame the parents of the teens enough that they’ll turn the kids in.
If I can’t grasp the difference between voting for Obama and looting businesses in person, it’s doubtful the welfare mammas or anonymous absentee daddies of the “teens” can either.
