Cynical’ Obama Plans to ‘Squeeze’ the ‘Change’ Out of America

A few weeks after returning from 17 days and $4 million worth of Oahu vacation, Michelle sent via Twitter cupid-day affections to her lover who’s golfing in California. It’s President’s Day weekend and Barry is in the drought-stricken desert resort area of Palm Springs. The president is there to putt-putt around a green that requires four times more water per day than the average American golf course.

Before judging the insensitivity of golfing while ISIS burns 17 Kurds alive in cages, perhaps golfing in Sunnylands is Obama’s cryptic way of commiserating with high heat and parched tongues. On the flip side, if the first lady and her daughters should suddenly show up in Aspen, which is a February tradition, Michelle will merely be commiserating with the frigid Northeast.

Either way, kudos to hubby Obama, who, before hitting the links at the aptly named Rancho Mirage, exercised his usual executive efficiency by ‘squeezing’ in a $10,000 per-person San Francisco fundraiser. In attendance were 60 Democratic Party loyalists who were treated to a generous helping of presidential delusion.

The theme of the president’s pre-golf fundraising comments concerned an area he excels in – “cynical politics.”

By Obama’s definition, “cynical politics” result from representatives in Congress trying desperately to thwart a renegade president’s effort to destroy a Constitutional republic — that, or any effort by elected officials to represent the citizenry who collectively disagree with most of what this truly contemptuous individual is imposing on America.

Yet, as usual, the president ignored reality and implied to Democratic stalwarts that the only reason his party lost the Senate in November was not that America disagreed with the direction he was taking the country, oh no! According to Obama, poor voter turnout was a reflection of the public’s displeasure with a faction of the GOP that refuses to lie down, roll over, and submit to his radical left-wing agenda.

Now Obama’s proposed fix is to spend every second of the next two years, which is approximately 730 days, give or take, strengthening the pessimistic public’s faith in Washington DC. To do so Barack plans to dig in, bear down, and “challeng[e] folks who are practicing the worst kind of cynical politics… a politics based on fear rather than hope.”

But where’s the fear? It’s not as if Americans seem worried that our Constitutional freedoms are being frittered away. Nor is it terrifying to watch Americans die at the hands of ISIS, or Coptic Christians beheaded, or Kurds buried or burned alive. When Europeans are gunned down in markets and coffee shops by Islamic terrorists Obama refuses to identify as such, most Americans remain relatively unfazed.

Here at home, it’s also no big deal that illegals and all their diseases are essentially being summoned into our midst with zero regard for the health and safety of our children. Nor is it concerning that, while the DHS sets up complaint hotlines for amnesty-bound illegal immigrants who feel their rights are being violated, Middle Eastern men continue to slip over the border.

Despite all that fun and frivolity, Barack Obama views the election of 2014 as a message to him to “restore a sense of possibility in our politics and our government,” whatever that means.

This from a man whose economy has helped orchestrate the joblessness of half of working-age Americans, singlehandedly ballooned the national debt at an average pace of $1,054,530,133,313.92 per year, and who has managed to create a national security/terror threat so dire that Americans are pretty much resigned to the likelihood that ISIS has already positioned itself to wreak holy havoc on our shores any minute now.

Nonetheless, apparently for Obama “restoring a sense of possibility” means obliging American taxpayers to do what amounts to buying an expensive item, returning it to the place of purchase, requesting a refund, and then handing the money over to an illegal who recently robbed the store.

Meanwhile, at Sandy and Jeanne Robertson’s San Francisco home, as Obama’s admirers enjoyed $10,000 dinner rolls, he reassured them that “In some cases,” in order to restore a “sense of possibility… it’s going to be finding areas of cooperating with Republicans.”

Excuse me, but can anyone name just one time in six years that Barack Obama has cooperated with Republicans or, for that matter, clear-thinking Democrats who disagreed with his plan to systematically dismantle the American system?
Then, Mr. Obama promised the well-heeled crowd at the fundraiser that he’s laying down the footing for the Democrat campaigns for 2016. Can anyone say “Elizabeth ‘Fake-Feather’ Warren (D-MA)?”

But here’s an even scarier part, a part where ‘mirage’ takes on new meaning: Obama actually said, “And so I intend to run through the tape and work really hard, and squeeze every last little bit of change and improvement in the lives of ordinary Americans and middle-class families that I can.”

For starters, in six years Barack has never broken a sweat, let alone “run through [a] tape,” that is, except for his appearance on the Grammys to shill for the cause of domestic violence. During that out-of-left field PSA the president looked like a sweaty Whitney Houston prior to her tragic demise.

Moreover, guests at a $1 million fundraiser certainly don’t feel it, but there’s a squeezing going on all right, and it has nothing to do with the president making positive progress.

Quite the contrary: Barack Obama’s ‘squeeze and change’ has summarily emasculated the entire Republican Party and is so painful that it has the middle class hunched over and feeling a financial ache similar to what a baseball player feels when he catches a wayward fast pitch below the belt.

And so, before heading to Rancho Mirage, after adding almost one million San Francisco dollars to Democrat coffers America’s delusional president assured his admirers that his intention is to keep squeezing every last bit of change out of a nation he’s already squeezed completely dry.

WILL HE GET ‘SUSPENDED’? Barack Obama’s PSA Promotes Gun Violence

ob-gun-300x180Originally posted at CLASH Daily

In a ginormous example of liberal hypocrisy, Barack Obama, the guy who weeps at memorials for children who’ve died as a result of gun violence, took to Buzzfeed to encourage his fan base to sign up for health insurance in a video entitled “Things Everybody Does But Doesn’t Talk About.”

And how did he do it? Well, he played fake basketball, which is sort of like playing air guitar, only the person pretends to throw an imaginary basketball through a non-existent basketball hoop. Fake basketball includes the hand moves, the jumps and the “ah damn” disappointment when you miss the non-existent basket, kind of like the way Obama is waging imaginary war against ISIS.

Simultaneously mimicking some uncredited millennial blonde actor, Obama mugged in front of a mirror, stuck his tongue out, winked at himself and adjusted his collar. The president ate huge cookies that didn’t fit into the glass of milk he was attempting to dunk them in, struggled to mispronounce “February,” took a series of cornball selfies with a selfie stick, and pretended to make a pencil drawing of the sunshine of his life, Michelle.

All this fun and frivolity was taking place while Iran inched closer to acquiring a nuclear bomb, 92 million Americans remained un- or underemployed, and ISIS continued to burn, behead, and bludgeon their way across the Middle East.

But the real eye-opener in the “Yolo Man” Buzzfeed sideshow was Obama play-acting like he was shooting a gun in the mirror.

Breaking out Joe Biden’s sunglasses, looking more like Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction than the guy who vows to stop gun violence, the president posed in a “go ahead, make my day” stick-up position, bent his bony fingers into the shape of a gun, and pointed it at himself in the mirror.

Where, pray tell, was the Secret Service when all this was taking place?

But more disturbing than Obama shooting at himself in a mirror is the sad reality that actions much more benign than Obama’s have gotten countless innocent children suspended from school.

In Maryland a second grader named Josh Welch was suspended in 2013 for biting a Pop Tart into the shape of an “L,” which his observant teacher felt resembled a gun. In Pennsylvania a little girl was suspended for making “terrorist threats” because she insisted her Hello Kitty bubble gun was superior to a princess bubble blower and was willing to shoot some soapsuds to prove it.

Also in Maryland, six-year-old Rodney Lynch got a one-day suspension for making “gun gestures” — twice with a pair of scissors and once with his finger, as did 10-year-old Nickolas Taylor of Milford, Massachusetts, and 10-year-old Nathan Entingh of Columbus, Ohio, both of whom did nothing more than what the president did while mugging it up on behalf of Obamacare.

So why doesn’t Obama’s adolescent behavior have the Michael Bloomberg “Not One More” crowd and Moms Who Demand Gun Sense in America in a complete tizzy?

Not only that, but what will Malik Bryant think of Obama’s fake firearm bravado?

Malik is the 13-year-old boy from Chicago’s Englewood section who, over the holidays, wrote to Santa Claus asking for safety. Bryant wrote in his letter “I just wanna be safe.” For that simple missive, Malik was chosen to be the special guest of the First Lady and sit in the Person-Whose-Sad-Story-Promotes-Progressivism Skybox at this year’s State of the Union.

So, Rodney, Nickolas, and Nathan are suspended for a gesture Barack Obama uses as a joke in a public service announcement.

Maybe the anti-Second Amendment guy should try to convince the reluctant to sign up for a health care bill he imposed on America at the barrel of a political gun with something other than his fake finger gun.

Venezuela’s Government-Run Healthcare Morgue

Morgue_(1)Originally posted at American Thinker

The best way to scare wayward teens straight is to take them to prisons, morgues, and the scenes of fatal car crashes. The idea is to show out-of-control kids the end result of their stupidity, be it with their involvement in what the CDC calls the “national epidemic” of drug addiction, or a propensity toward a life of crime, alcohol abuse, or even promiscuous sex.

With that in mind, one can’t help but wonder whether it’s too late for America to be “Scared Straight,” because from the look of things, in the area of healthcare reform, our nation may be beyond help.

Let’s remember –- before ObamaCare was signed into law the warnings were many, most of which were ignored.  Since then, Obama has watched beheadings and immolations with the cold distance of a seasoned executioner, all the while attempting to convince Americans that their health and well-being is his top priority.

Sarah Palin warned of death panels and was mercilessly mocked, only to be vindicated when it was found out that American veterans were already dying on waiting lists, in government-run and funded VA hospitals. Now as the Affordable Care Act, which is ending up to be not so affordable, kicks in, the federal government is discussing reimbursing Medicare for “end of life discussions” that encourage the elderly and the infirm to reject costly treatment and sign on for glamorized pill-iative, I mean palliative care.

In addition, Johnson & Johnson, which has been involved in the implementation of ObamaCare from the start and has opined endlessly about controlling healthcare costs, has started an ambitious project to predict who will get a disease. Being peddled as a preventative/curative effort, the more realistic among us can only wonder whether the results of this venture will help the government determine who ultimately receives lifesaving care and who not to waste the money on.

The results of those endeavors remain to be seen, as well as whether the elderly mothers of future Jane Sturms, who Obama implied were a “waste” despite their “joy of living,” will be denied pacemakers based on their age.

Meanwhile, if there is still time to jolt America awake with more day-to-day concerns, maybe taking a look at the socialized healthcare issues of Venezuela will be our nation’s version of a scared-straight visit to the federally-run healthcare morgue.

The late Hugo Chávez, proponent of socialized everything, once said something similar to what Obama’s actions tacitly lend credibility to, which is that “healthcare is a human right.”  Chávez said:

Privatization is a neoliberal and imperialist plan. Health can’t be privatized because it is a fundamental human right, nor can education, water, electricity and other public services. They can’t be surrendered to private capital that denies the people from their rights.

And so, the Venezuelan government controls water and electricity. Despite all that government oversight, regrettably, the people of Venezuela often find themselves in the dark because according to César Batiz in an article in the Americas Quarterly, since the nation nationalized the electrical grid, the “government has failed to build enough new power plants and to maintain existing ones.”

Although America is approximately 1,500 miles away from Venezuela, that sounds similar to how the hospital and doctor shortage is shaping up since ObamaCare became law.

As for public health services, Venezuela has high instances of Dengue fever, especially in areas that lack the potable water and trash collection. Although Chávez said that water is a human right and that the water supply is best overseen by the régime, there are water shortages and rationing.

And just as all these other human rights have turned out in Venezuela, so too is the non-privatized fundamental human right of government-provided healthcare ending up to be a forecast of what America can expect when Obama’s fundamental transformation of the U.S. healthcare system is complete.

Currently, Venezuela is suffering from a drug shortage so dire that the shelves in the pharmacies and the hospitals are completely bare.

So perhaps Americans, who get antsy if they have to wait more than 10 minutes for Amoxicillin for a kid’s earache, should consider an ObamaCare scared-straight fieldtrip to a Caracas pharmacy, where there is no Vitamin C, no folic acid, and no acetaminophen. Meanwhile, thanks to superior government-provided public health services, 35,000 Venezuelans infected with mosquito-transmitted viruses like Chikungunya have no Tylenol to treat severe joint pain.

So much for government-enforced human rights.

According to an article by Sergio Held titled “Tweeting for Treatment in Venezuela”, the country is also “facing a critical shortage of basic medical supplies.” Adding insult to injury, pharmacists must keep their stores open eight hours a day even though the shelves are bare, because if they close the benevolent human rights-oriented Venezuelan government suspends their license.

Not only are very sick people being denied essential medicines to survive, the Venezuelan healthcare infrastructure is collapsing because of money the government owes drug companies and other healthcare providers. While Hugo the Late considered privatization of healthcare to be denying basic human rights, 15% of Venezuela’s cancer patients are dying for lack of radiotherapy treatment and breast cancer victims are waiting to have tumors removed at a large Venezuelan medical facility, which on a smaller scale can certainly be likened to America’s VA waiting list where U.S. veterans died from lack of treatment.

And so, much like a group of at-risk juvenile delinquents who think jail is no big deal find out with a trip to a penitentiary that they’re wrong, maybe it’s time for Americans to take a good hard look at Venezuela and be scared straight into doing something about Obamacare before it’s too late.

GRAMMY AWARDS 2015: Grannies, Gays and God’s Grace

beyonce_perfOriginally posted at CLASH Daily

If you’re a hedonist, this year’s Grammy Award show rocked! For starters, last year Madonna, dressed like a cowboy, officiated a gay wedding; she showed up this year wearing a Granny-ass hammock and not much else.

An aging Angus Young in his traditional schoolboy outfit helped open the worship service with AC/DC’s very fitting “Highway to Hell” anthem. Then, not to be outdone, Hozier and an embarrassingly enthusiastic Annie Lenox, before segueing into “I Put a Spell on You,” sang the disturbing ode to gay sex, “Take Me to Church.”

When the Sovereign Queen Beyoncé won a Grammy for her song “Drunk in Love”, which features the lyrics “I’ve been drinking, get filthy when that liquor get into me,” and “Last thing I remember is our beautiful bodies grinding up in the club,” she thanked God in her acceptance speech.

Sam “Stay With Me” Smith, the openly gay Brit and Boy George of 2015, ruled the night, winning four Grammys. Accepting the record of the year trophy, Sam said “I want to thank the man who this record is about, who I fell in love with last year. Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys.” Then he sang with Mary K. Blige.

Don’t get me wrong, there were some not-too-objectionable things going on, such as Kanye and Kim dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier on the red carpet, discussing West’s Yeezy Boost sneakers. Kanye promised that, at $300 a pop, the footwear would address classism.

L.L. Cool J hosted, and there was the high-spirited exhibitionist Taylor Swift dancing with such obnoxious abandon it’s easy to understand why the girl has trouble getting a date.

John Legend and his irritating wife model Chrissy Teigen, who admitted on the red carpet that they once had sex at an Obama event, were mouthing the lyrics to songs they clearly didn’t know.

Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine did an elegant duet, and the always “Happy” Mr. Pharrell Williams and his canary yellow sneakers livened up the show.

The singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer, and fashion designer seems like a nice enough guy. But when did Pharrell, who seems happily unaware that, thanks to Barack Obama, most of America is unhappy, trade his signature Royal Canadian Mounties hat for shorts?

Speaking of #‎ItsonBarackObama, he appeared via video to give a public service message to America about rape and domestic abuse with his #‎Itsonus‬ campaign. Barack’s the guy who’s fine with women being genitally mutilated, married off at nine years-old, beheaded, shot, burned, stoned, and above all aborted – just don’t hit ’em! Not to mention his being unperturbed about the looming prospect of Iran acquiring a nuke and blowing the state of Israel off the map.

Dressed in white, pastor’s daughter Katy Perry backed her hero up. Katy, the girl who was wearing devil’s horns and flashing the satanic salute during AC/DC’s performance, sang “By the Grace of God,” a ballad supposedly about domestic violence.

And all this took place as the violent, misogynist ode to sadomasochistic sex, “50 Shades of Grey,” is about to hit the big screen. The movie’s soundtrack includes songs by Beyoncé, Annie Lennox, and Sia in a ginormous white wig, all of whom were featured at the same Grammy Awards show that spent an inordinate amount of energy denouncing violence against women.

Disregarding old men being abused by young women, Jessie J, dressed in a see-thru black fishing net, sang “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” to Tom ‘Cialis’ Jones, and Lady Gaga, who left her meat dress home, sang standards while rubbing her ample décolletage on a delighted 88 year-old Tony Bennett.

Other Grammy 2015 highlights included Sir Paul McCartney looking out of place, strumming his guitar with no mic and watching as Kanye adjusted his droopy drawers, and Rihanna, sans a Chris Brown-administered black eye, bounced around the stage singing “FourFiveSeconds.”

Stevie Wonder got a standing ovation he had no clue he was receiving, and an aging Prince, dressed in an orange-is-the-new-black jumpsuit, made a curious reference to the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri fame, saying, “Albums still matter. Like books and black lives, albums still matter.”

Clearly, Prince didn’t think through his wardrobe choice. Either that or he was unaware that if Michael had managed to steal Darren Wilson’s gun and shoot the police officer, a similar outfit is what Mr. Brown would be wearing in jail.

The show included lots of hoodies and ignorant “hands up” protest references, but not one mention of the two NYPD officers blown away in their police cruiser by Ismaayil Brinsley.

At one point, Madonna was introduced by that sweaty “badass…bitch’” Miley Cyrus and her cohort Nicki ‘Bloated Butt’ Minaj. Thankfully, “All About That Bass” Madge donned some much-needed shorts.

The decrepit diva attempted to relive the 1980s with a horde of horned men and did an embarrassingly clumsy number that looked more like she was auditioning for a Tena pad commercial than performing on the Grammys.

An out-of-place looking Beck, who beat Beyoncé by winning album of the year, was publicly dissed by Kanye and sang with Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband Chris Martin.

Gwyneth, who refuses to be upstaged, dragged her girly parts away from her steam-cleaning machine long enough to introduce her “beautiful friend” Beyoncé, who went from being “drunk in love” to singing the sober Gospel song “Take My Hand Precious Lord.”

Beyoncé took to the stage in all her majestic glory to prove to the world that she, not Ledisi, should have played Mahalia Jackson in the movie Selma.

Wrapping up, country superstar Miranda Lambert cursed and was censored while singing “Little Red Wagon,” Nicole Kidman still can’t move her face, and the 2014 dead people slide show touched many hearts. But more importantly, for degenerates, gay rights activists, Obama fanatics, and cop-killer sympathizers, as always, this year’s Grammy Awards show really delivered.

IGNORAMUS MICHAEL MOORE: Tweeting More Foolishness

Michael-MooreOriginally posted at Clash Daily

A few days after the CDC admitted that the “overseas” imported measles epidemic that is creeping across America with the same determination as Enterovirus D-68, which killed 15 and paralyzed and sickened hundreds, like grease rising to the top of chicken soup America-hating Michael Moore has reared his obnoxious head again. This time it’s not to slam American heroes; it’s to give travel advice to illegal aliens hoping to sneak across the border unimpeded into Arizona.

After watching a colorful Katy Perry, dressed like a flame-thrower riding a red-eyed tiger that looked like a demonic Transformer, sing “I Kissed a Girl” to a confused Lenny Kravitz, having what appeared to be fireworks shoot out her butt, and riding a shooting star rivaled only by Gwyneth Paltrow’s genital steam-cleaning apparatus, Michael, aka Jabba the Hutt, seized the opportunity to criticize border patrol agents and endorse illegal immigration.

Here’s what the bloated buffoon said this time:
michael-more1-770x339

So apparently in @MMFlint’s opinion, border patrol agents are “vigilantes” that “harass” innocent illegals who, if they could only be flown directly into Arizona, could bypass the whole ordeal.

First Michael Moore took to Twitter and accused military snipers of being cowardly murderers on a joy ride, implying that a Navy SEAL’s idea of good time is to shoot innocent people in the back. Then he accused Clint “Make My Day” Eastwood of threatening to kill his sorry ass.

Now, sitting somewhere in one of his nine homes, praising Marxism and thinking up incendiary things to say, Michael, who clearly despises America and the military, makes the snide suggestion that Third-World types should skip sneaking into Arizona and instead bypass border security by being airlifted.

As outrageous as Michael’s idea may sound, while that other illegal-loving liberal, Barack Obama, is in charge, flying in illegal aliens is a maneuver that is not out of the range of possibility.

Barack is of the same mindset and has already proposed giving refugee status to certain groups.

Obama’s genius idea is that, rather than have criminal interlopers endure the dangerous trek across the border trying to avoid the coyotes and the human smugglers, why not send cargo planes to pick up what he calls “refugees?”

Using refugee status as a cover would ensure that individuals with MDR-TB, Enterovirus D-68, measles, scabies and other Third World goodies to spread around, as well as culturally diverse MS-13 gang members, drug addicts, child molesters, rapists, and an occasional Islamic terrorist thrown into the mix can be dropped off all across America.

So, as far as liberal insanity goes, Michael the Hutt is on the same page as the president, who wants to seed American neighborhoods and classrooms with every possible type of disease and danger he can dredge up and dump off.

So with that in mind, not that Katy Perry’s steam-powered, Gwyneth Paltrow-inspired flying machine could lift that large lump of lard, but if it could, maybe it could pick up Michael Moore by the seat of his stained boxer shorts and fly him directly to Cuba and drop him off.

And maybe, while the Super Bowl half-time flying machine is at it, how about doing America a solid and making a double-duty stop at the White House to pick up another pusillanimous passenger for the trip?

Dr. Obama’s orders: Get the measles vaccine

Dr-ObamaOriginally posted at American Thinker

Employing a time-tested Cloward-Piven tactic, President Obama has created another crisis and, right on schedule, has also come up with a brilliant solution.

In an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie where the president bragged about turning the White House into a distillery, shared his opinion on deflated balls, and advised against cheating, “If you break the rules, then you break the rules” (as if he should talk), Dr. Obama advised parents to “get your kids vaccinated.”

This is a man who, expressly for the purpose of philosophical and political expediency, has deliberately placed the children of America in danger by exposing them to diseases long eradicated from our midst.  In Obama’s sick, twisted world, and in an effort to foster fairness, he has knowingly allowed illegals into this country who are infected with illnesses that have put everyone, but most especially vulnerable children, trapped in classrooms or visiting theme parks like Disneyland, at great risk.

Here parents take their children on a long-anticipated vacation, and instead of coming home with just a memento from Space Mountain, they come home with a raging case of red measles.  Or, worse yet, you send your kids off to school, and they step off the school bus with a respiratory virus like Enterovirus D-68, which has killed 15 Americans, most of whom were children.

And who’s responsible?  Unfortunately, it’s the person now advising us on how to prevent contracting the illnesses he’s at fault for exposing us to.

Here’s what the expert on everything who really knows nothing had to say to a gushing Guthrie on the subject of vaccines:

I understand that there are families that in some cases are concerned about the effect of vaccinations. The science is, you know, pretty indisputable. We’ve looked at this again and again. There is every reason to get vaccinated, but there aren’t reasons to not.

Right about now, the bigger concern is what other dangerous policy or self-serving maneuver the guy giving the medical counsel has up his sleeve.

Not only that, but having a climate-change fearmonger who denies that the Taliban are terrorists lecture us about the indisputable findings of anything, let alone vaccines, is laughable.  Moreover, who is the “we’ve” Obama is referring to as having “looked at this again and again”?  Himself and Valerie Jarrett?

On the subject of measles and vaccines, Obama finished up by advising:

You should get your kids vaccinated. It’s good for them, but we should be able to get back to the point where measles effectively is not existing in this country.

“Is not existing in this country”?  Somebody, please, plug in the Teleprompter.

So, according to Obama, get your kids vaccinated, because the person exposing them to deadly viruses insists that “it’s good for them,” which is kind of like Bill Clinton, a visitor to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Underage Sex Island,” advising parents on how to protect their children from sexual predators.

How infuriating is it that the president has set the eradication of measles back 14 years by knowingly reintroducing a virus that hasn’t really been on the CDC radar since the year 2000?  Then, to make matters worse, he places the onus back on Americans to take the responsibility for getting the nation “back to the point where,” as Obama eloquently notes, “measles effectively is not existing in this country.”

Blaming Mickey and Other Measles Scapegoats

mickeymeaslesOriginally posted at American Thinker

After Enterovirus D-68, a virus that arrived in the US from Latin America, killed 15 Americans, most of them children, and paralyzed dozens, the CDC is finally ’fessing up that the newest epidemic, the Disneyland measles outbreak, had its origin overseas.  According to Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “We don’t know exactly how this outbreak started but we do think it was likely a person infected with measles overseas.”

Overseas? How about over the border?

Unwilling to put the blame on the thousands upon thousands of unaccompanied minors that Obama encouraged to migrate north last summer or the possibility that an illegal visiting Disneyland is the source, is the CDC actually suggesting the culprit might be a travelling American, or a visitor from overseas, or perhaps Dumbo or even Mickey Mouse?

The CDC is saying “We assume that someone got infected with measles overseas, visited Disneyland park, and spread the disease to others.”  In other words, it could have been absolutely anyone, from anywhere!

According to Rear Admiral Anne Schuchat M.D., assistant surgeon general of the United States Public Health Service and director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), one person with the highly contagious measles virus can infect 12 to 18 people. So whomever the “overseas” person was that went to Disneyland with the intent to visit the “happiest place on earth,” he or she has managed to start a chain of events that has affected 91 Minnie and Mickey fans and made 100 people in eight states extremely unhappy.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration advocates must be hoping that guilt-ridden Americans who are used to accepting fault for everything from slavery to worldwide terrorism will forget what took place on America’s border last summer.

But a quick stroll down memory lane brings to mind a certain government-contracted security force nicknamed the “brown shirts.”  The brown shirts threatened doctors and nurses with arrest if they revealed any information about the illnesses they were seeing at the San Antonio, Texas Lackland Air Force Base refugee camp, where thousands of illegal alien children were being housed.

Maybe remorseful Americans need to be reminded that one anonymous source said that there were children in the camp with measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat, not to mention children with visible lice crawling in their hair.

Also, let us not forget that, according to the US government’s “Office of Refugee Resettlement,” there were approximately 60,000 “unaccompanied minors” who were relocated, some of whom were documented to have – you guessed it – the measles.

Therefore, logic dictates that there’s a good chance the measles carrier was not one tourist or a single American returning from abroad, and the CDC implying that this is the case is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

In a moment of scrupulousness, Dr. Schuchat did admit that the virus affecting Americans is similar to strains currently infecting the people of Indonesia and the Muslim nations of Qatar, Azerbaijan, and Dubai.

So in other words, human germ canisters have proven to “armed insurgents” and anyone else interested in triggering another “man-caused disaster” that a shot at successful bio-warfare actually exists.

Bio-warfare or not, measles still has a 90 percent transmission rate among people who are not immunized or otherwise immune to it. So now as the virus spreads, on behalf of the politician responsible, Dr. Schuchat is dutifully implying that Americans are to blame.

Schuchat insists that the measles cases are exponentially growing because some Americans fail to get vaccinated or get their children vaccinated.  She feels that “this is not a problem of the measles vaccine not working. It’s a problem of the measles vaccine not being used. Measles can be a very serious disease and people need to be vaccinated.”

So wait – this outbreak is not because thousands of unvaccinated children from other countries exposed American children to a virus that was eradicated from the United States 14 years ago? No, it’s because of anti-vaxxers who chose not to vaccinate because, before Obama ushered in a Third World invasion, concern about contracting the measles was minimal.

Schuchat added, “Measles is still common around the world and we estimate there are around 20 million cases a year. Of them, more than 145,000 die every year. For every 1,000 children who get measles, one to three of them die despite treatment.”

Not to mention that “28 percent of kids who get measles are sick enough to be hospitalized, and can suffer permanent brain damage.”

Speaking of brain damage, here’s an idea for “virus hunter” Anne Schuchat:  How about suggesting to the president that it’s a bad idea to purposely import contagions that have long been eliminated and unnecessarily expose American children to viruses and bacteria that make many deathly ill and kill others?

On second thought, the CDC will probably be forced to toe Obama’s blame-game line, which means it’s only a matter of time until someone suggests that it was unvaccinated American children who infected “unaccompanied minors” with the measles.

Vaccinated or not, on behalf of the CDC, Dr. Schuchat’s public service announcement did warn that “You can catch measles just by being in the same room as a person who has measles.” Did she mean “room” as in public school classrooms filled with illegal children?

Then Dr. Anne suggested that “If [adults] are not sure whether [they] have had the measles vaccine or not…there’s no harm in getting another MMR vaccine.”

So there you have it.

Despite Obama knowingly importing infected youngsters with, among other things, the measles, children whose parents have decided, in a free country, for whatever reason, be it religious, philosophical, or medical, not to vaccinate are now being impugned for starting a measles crisis.

As for adults who have already had the measles vaccine, to preclude contracting a deadly virus from children who shouldn’t be in America to begin with, they’re now being told there’s no harm in getting a booster.

Once again, kudos goes to the President!

Obama’s election minions descend on Israel

obama-netanyahuOriginally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama doesn’t appreciate anyone treating him like he treats everyone else.  That’s why the president will not be meeting with Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu when, in response to an invitation from House Speaker John Boehner, he comes to the U.S. to address a joint session of Congress on the threat a nuclear Iran poses to Israel and the world.

Petulant child Barack Obama doesn’t take perceived insult well.  His response is usually spiteful, and disproportionately so.  The president embodies what Robert Kennedy meant when he said, “Don’t get mad; get even.”

On more than one occasion Barack Obama has reminded his political adversaries that he won.  The president has publicly rebuked congressmen, dressed down Supreme Court justices at a State of the Union address, and scolded reporters, political adversaries, and anyone else he perceives as critical of his one-sided, left-leaning progressive vision.

On occasion, in the process of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” Obama has been known to throw temper tantrums, stomp out of meetings, mock Republicans, and issue threats.

And the ingenious Barack Obama has also been known to display his vindictiveness in more creative ways.

Take for instance sending non-verbal messages of approval or disapproval with his selective attendance at funerals.  If a conservative ally or war hero passes away or a black thug or a border-crossing illegal murders a law enforcement officer, their deaths are ignored.  On the other hand, liberal celebrities, civil rights activists, Saudi dictators, communist South African presidents, and any other individuals whose deaths further his liberal agenda are all recognized with effusive condolences.

But skipping funerals and bubble-wrapping and sending back to Britain Winston Churchill’s bust pale in comparison to Obama’s vile approach toward Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu.

Caught on an open mic talking with Nicolas Sarkozy, Obama responded to the former French president, who said he could not stand Netanyahu and called him a liar, by saying, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

The year prior, Obama had presented Mr. Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed to mend fences with Palestine, one of which was for all construction in East Jerusalem be halted.  When Bibi balked, the president stood up, announced, “I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls,” and stormed out of the room, leaving the Israeli prime minister sitting alone for over an hour.

In 2011, Scott Wilson of the Washington Post described the relationship between Bibi and Barack perfectly when he wrote that “Obama and Netanyahu are allies only by tradition, and their relationship lacks personal warmth and is tested often by their differing political views.”

In other words, the relationship is cold, confrontational, and at times openly hostile.

Netanyahu is offended by Obama’s wanting to negotiate with a nation whose former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said, “Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury,” and whose Ministry of Defense stated that “[t]he day will come when the Islamic people in the region will destroy Israel and save the world from this Zionist base.”

That’s why, when invited by John Boehner to address a problem Barack Obama refuses to deal with, for the safety and well-being of both America and Israel, Netanyahu graciously accepted the invitation to deliver a message to a Congress craving a dose of reality.

Evidently, Obama is furious that Boehner invited Netanyahu.  A White House spokesperson speaking on Mr. Obama’s behalf said that Bibi accepting the invitation is equivalent to spitting in the president’s face.

If I may, saying Prime Minister Netanyahu “spat in our face publicly,” referring of course to President Obama’s face, is a dramatic word picture.

When the anonymous spokesperson stressed that “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price,” it was exactly the kind of nasty Chicago-style threat Barack the community organizer is now known for.

Then, just a few days after the “price to pay” warning, Obama refused to meet with the Israeli leader.  Citing “the proximity to the Israeli election,” National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said:

As a matter of long-standing practice and principle…[and]…to avoid the appearance of influencing a democratic election in a foreign country… we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections.

And while that seems like a noble practice, we now come to find out that the “price to pay” may involve the Obama administration doing the exact opposite of “long-standing practice and principle.”  In fact, from the looks of things, Barack Obama may be very interested in “influencing a democratic election in a foreign country.”

According to Israeli media outlet Haaretz, the “Anyone but Bibi” V-2015 campaign is being assisted by Harvard-educated Jeremy Bird, Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns’ Organizing for Action deputy national field director.  The V-2015 plan is to defeat Bibi by engaging in an Israeli ground operation similar to the one that helped secure Obama a two-term U.S. presidency.

Flush with American money, Bird and a team of Obama community organizers are working with “One Voice International,” a U.S. State Department-funded grassroots movement whose goal is to “amplif[y] the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians, empowering them to propel their elected representatives toward the two-state solution.”

Coincidentally, the former COO of Soros Fund Management, Gary Gladstein, sits on the “One Voice” Honorary Board of Advisors.

That’s why Barack Obama is undoubtedly anxious to see his nemesis, for repeatedly defying the president’s demands, and for treating the PLO and the soon-to-be-nuclear Iran like nothing more than common terrorists, crushed by a two-state-friendly opponent.

Bottom line: once again, the malicious, spiteful Barack Obama, whose minions have successfully placed in office a leader who intrinsically despises the nation he leads – twice – may be attempting to get his own way by replacing a leader who loves Israel with a leader who does not.

MUSLIM KOWTOWER: Obama Mourns for a Saudi King

saidi-300x180Originally posted at Clash Daily

Based on which funerals and memorials he chooses to attend and which ones he chooses to ignore, in the past President Obama has relayed unspoken sentiments about the deceased.

Take for instance his weeping at the memorial services of children killed by gun violence versus his absence at the funerals of the children who died of Enterovirus D-68. The president attended the former because it furthered his ongoing gun-grab effort, but not the latter, because children dying from imported Third World diseases are synonymous with being a victim of Obama’s illegal immigration policy.

At a moment’s notice, Barack and Michelle were willing to fly off to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, but because U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata were killed with Obama administration “Fast and Furious”-provided guns, the president chose to skip those events.

Regrettably for Major General Harold J. Green, the highest-ranking military officer killed in combat in a half-century, on the same day the major general was laid to rest Obama chose to play his second round of golf in three days.

Unlike he did with drug-addled pop star Whitney Houston, cancer-victim ESPN announcer Stuart Scott, and the suicidal Robin Williams, the president made no statement concerning the death of decorated Navy SEAL of American Sniper fame, Chris Kyle, the Iraqi war hero who did four tours of duty and saved thousands of American lives. Obama didn’t even acknowledge the murdered Kyle’s funeral, which included a 200-mile procession from Midlothian, Texas to Austin.

The same held true with James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by renowned ISIS decapitator Jihadi John. At Foley’s memorial service, there was nary a White House representative in sight.

To his credit, Obama blubbered like a baby at the funeral of the “Godmother” of the civil rights movement, Dr. Dorothy Height, and recognized the death of the first Cherokee Nation female chief Wilma Mankiller.

After the passing of fantasy/science fiction author Ray Bradbury, pop star/disco singer Donna Summer, Apple founder Steve Jobs, and American Bandstand/New Year’s Eve icon Dick Clark, Obama publicly extended his condolences.

And just as he did with Trayvon Martin, Obama issued a statement concerning the death of Ferguson, Missouri thug Michael Brown. Concerned about gun violence, the president dispatched Michelle to Chicago for the funeral of murdered teen Hadiya Pendleton.

On the other hand, the president chose to sit out the funeral of U.S. ally and good friend to former president Ronald Reagan, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Citing volcanic ash as a deterrent, the president chose to golf on the day of Polish president Lech Kaczynski’s 2010 funeral.

Speaking of Poland, on the way home from India Obama will not be attending the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the largest mass murder site in human history.

However, six million murdered Jews aside, while returning from India, Obama decided to make a $267,787 four-hour stopover in Saudi Arabia to pay his respects to the late King Abdullah and to meet the newly crowned Saudi monarch King Salman. The president touched down in Riyadh hauling a huge American delegation that included Condoleezza Rice and John McCain (R-AZ).

Barack Obama didn’t feel inclined to pay his respects to NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, whose funeral services were both held close to New York City’s Times Square. But maybe, after dining at the Saudi Erga Palace, he did some secret sightseeing in Deera “Chop-Chop Square,” the place where decapitations routinely take place as a form of entertainment and where, after losing their heads, some of the corpses are then crucified.

Disguised as diplomacy, Barack Obama, the man who ignored the deaths of America’s true allies, chose to spend American tax dollars to fund his transparently selective funeral attendance. And he did it in the largest Arab nation that controls most of the world’s oil for a dead King whose legacy has been the persecution of women, imprisonment or death for political dissidents, the flogging of outspoken bloggers, chopping off the limbs of thieves, and beheading people.

Meanwhile, Muslim kowtower Obama couldn’t make it to the Paris protest renouncing terrorism attended by 44 other world leaders, and asked a White House official to promise on his behalf that Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will “pay a price” for agreeing to come to America to address Congress on the threat of a nuclear Iran.

Meanwhile, feigning funerary obligations, again Obama exposes his blatant favoritism with yet another non-verbal statement. But this time, he’s not expressing sympathy for dead thugs or deceased celebrities, but a dead Saudi Arabian king and a nation rumored to be a “cash machine” for worldwide terrorism.

WHITE HOUSE INDIGNATION: Did Bibi Spit In Obama’s Face?

عکاسی-با-سرعت-بالا-11Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Pay attention! Barack Obama, the autonomous, Constitution-defying president who pretty much does whatever he wants is livid because Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to coordinate his March visit with the one who consults with no one.

That’s right – White House officials, on behalf of a man who “spits in everyone’s face”, have said that Obama believes that Netanyahu’s plan to speak before a joint session of Congress to address the dangers Iran poses to Israel and the world is tantamount to spitting in President Obama’s face.

In case you forgot, Benjamin Netanyahu is the guy who was left sitting in a White House meeting room when he failed to submit to Obama’s diktats concerning construction in East Jerusalem. Not only that, but talk about double-standards: Obama skipping Paris wasn’t “spitting in an ally’s face”, but Bibi accepting an invitation to address Congress is being likened to spitting in Obama’s face?

For years now, Obama has been looking for any excuse to publicly place Netanyahu in the same category that he’s placed the rest of his enemies. That’s why the president continues to regularly try to push the Israeli Prime Minister’s buttons – most recently to demand that Netanyahu tone down his rhetoric calling for sanctions against Iran. Bibi is smart and surely recognizes Obama’s attempt to set up a scapegoat to blame when the negotiations, which would never have worked with Iran in the first place, completely break down.

The problem for Obama is that clearly Bibi Netanyahu fears no one and is proving again that a fraidy cat like Obama does not intimidate him, and so, thanks to John Boehner’s newfound boldness, Bibi graciously accepted the invitation and has no intention of submitting to the president’s unreasonable demands.

According to a White House spokesperson, by accepting the Speaker’s invitation, Mr. Netanyahu did something “you simply don’t do. [Bibi] spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave.” Then, after calling out the Israeli leader’s behavior, Obama’s mouthpiece, on behalf of the president, issued a customary Chicago-style threat: “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.”

Thus far, there’s been no price, or only a minimal price paid, for ISIS beheading Americans, no price for al Qaeda spilling French and Jewish blood, no price for ISIS gunning down 14 year-old boys for watching soccer matches, and no price for Boko Haram allegedly slaughtering 2,000 people. But Bibi Netanyahu agrees to come to the US to speak about a threat Obama refuses to confront – for that, “there will be a price”?

Based on the president’s conduct, all his foot-stomping has accomplished is to prove that tyrants simply can’t be negotiated with. Yet Obama continues to warn both Bibi and the Republican Congress that a sanctions bill would negatively impact negotiations with Iranian leaders.

What’s different here is that Boehner, who has talked tough and then summarily backed down with predictable consistency, must have gotten the loud and clear message at the SOTU from the cocksure Obama and decided to take his job seriously. Realizing that negotiating with the one who plans to negotiate with Iran isn’t going to work, Boehner extended an invitation to an authentic world leader.

Meanwhile, back at the White House, the camaraderie between Bibi and Boehner is probably infuriating for someone used to always getting his own way.

What’s funny is that Obama can taunt, sneer, snigger, and abuse whomever he pleases, but let that be aimed back at him and Barack “I won twice” Obama throws a public hissy fit. Barack Obama’s unique governing style came back to bite the haughty one in the butt, and lo and behold, he can’t take what he dishes out.

How dare the Israeli leader speak truthfully about the all-but-nonexistent US-led nuclear negotiations with Iran? And how dare Netanyahu, whose country is surrounded on all sides by enemies, urge US lawmakers to ignore Obama’s threats to veto and impose a new round of tougher sanctions on Tehran?

In response to Netanyahu’s plans to bring just that sort of message to the joint session of Congress, officials in Washington – who it was is unknown – said that the “chickensh*t” nickname an anonymous administration official gave Netanyahu several months ago paled in comparison to the salty language used in the White House when the real “chickensh*ts” got news of Netanyahu’s planned speech.

Meanwhile, citing “departure from… protocol,” Obama, who parties in Gwyneth Paltrow’s backyard, invites Beyoncé and Jay-Z to the White House and grants interviews to individuals who thank him on YouTube for raising taxes to provide them with free healthcare, has refused to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu. That’s actually a good thing, because it deprives Obama of a second opportunity to be spiteful by leaving the Israeli leader sitting in a room somewhere in the White House by himself.
