Obama Replaces Website Concerns with Mega Fundraising

While Americans were busy scraping together pennies to try to pay for health insurance plans Barack Obama has demanded they buy, but can’t afford, Obama was in California fundraising at the mansion of the 144th richest person in America.

Hopping aboard Air Force One to burn up jet fuel costing an astounding $181K per hour, Obama put his priorities in order and jetted out to the sprawling Beverly Hills Estate of Egyptian-born Israeli-American television and media proprietor of Power Ranger fame, Haim Saban. Saban’s wife Cheryl was nominated by Obama to be the US representative at the upcoming U.N. General Assembly.

The people who showed up at the Sabans’ humble abode were willing to pay $16,200 per plate to hear Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Haim Saban(D-NY), and Michael Bennet, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), talk drivel.

 

California’s very own Barbara Boxer was among the other politicians who attended the festivities.

The tony attendees included the Godfather of Black Music, Motown mogul, Clarence Avant, his wife Jacqueline, and their daughter Nicole, who serves as U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas.  Netflix executive Ted Sarandos was Nicole’s guest.

SunAmerica’s Edythe and Eli Broad were there and neither one seemed to mind that the guest of honor had just thrown Israel under the bus.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, Motown’s Berry Gordy, actors Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, and 90s sitcom star Paul Reiser showed up. Oprah mogul Michael King and his Healthy Child/Healthy World philanthropist wife Jenna, along with Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer and his wife Wendy, chairwoman of the board of United Friends of the Children (who aren’t aborted), all slapped down $16K each to listen to Obama yammer for 14 minutes.

Gladly ‘sharing the wealth’ with each other, the Sabans held the dinner party under what was described as a “spectacular [heated] pitched tent…with shimmering light brown fabric…four palm tree-inspired chandeliers…bathed in orange/gold light…[decorated] with bouquets of pink roses,” complete with “an elaborate fountain…in the middle of the tent.”

Mr. Saban jokingly read Obama the riot act for not providing valet parking when he and his wife dined privately with the president and first lady for a “great food, great company, very inspiring…small intimate dinner” at the White House.

To ensure that White House guests don’t have to hoof it to the White House, Saban, generous soul that he is, declared, “We have valet parking at the Sabans! So, Mr. President if you would please, thank you. Taxpayers’ money? I’ll fund it, no problem.”

Saban criticized Fox News and called out Rush Limbaugh by name for haranguing the president over the “technical glitch on the Obamacare website.”

The gazillionaire blamed everyone but Obama for having “clouded some of the most remarkable achievements of [the Obama] administration.”

Immediately after complaining that taxpayers don’t fund valet parking, Mr. Saban then listed Obama’s accomplishments so that his guests could “see things with perspective without allowing the caffeine that’s in the tea party’s rhetoric to keep us up at night worrying.”

Thrilled guests listened as their host, who obviously hasn’t been keeping up with the news, mentioned Obama’s record on foreign policy, saying, “We’re out of Iraq, we’re out of Afghanistan” and “the president’s commitment to Israel’s security has never been stronger.”

The American-Israeli host did not mention that Obama, who had the clout to hobnob with California billionaires, chose not to negotiate for the release of three Americans, one of whom is a Christian pastor, all still imprisoned in Iran.

Barack Obama, who prides himself on speaking behalf of the middle class, shared for a snippet of time, making sure to touch upon the pressingly urgent valet parking controversy at the White House.

The star-studded evening started at a small-scale $2,500 to $15,000 per-ticket fundraiser for 160 people held at famous womanizer Earvin Magic Johnson’s and his wife Cookie’s pad.

The former Los Angeles Laker called Barack Obama “the greatest leader in the world,” which makes one wonder whether, besides having slept with 3,000 women, Magic Johnson also nibbled on 3,000 magic mushrooms.

At that soiree were Samuel L. Jackson and family, Ashley Lewis, LA Clippers Antawn Jamison and JJ Redick and Redick’s wife Chelsea. Diane ‘Annie Hall’ Keaton was there, as well as a large busload of Democrat politicians that included San Francisco Supervisor London Breed, Xavier Becerra, Linda Sanchez and Mark Takano.

After spending the night resting from the whirlwind of excitement, Barack Obama attended a $32,400-per-guest breakfast event (man alive, those better be some awesome waffles) at the home of Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman. After which the president has plans to visit and give a speech on the economy and the entertainment industry, both of which he knows nothing about, at mega donor Jeffrey Katzenberg‘s DreamWorks Animation HQ.

All along the fundraising route, despite his 37% approval rate, Obama was cheered as he talked about teamwork, Obamacare, immigration reform, the economy, and, of utmost importance, his commitment to providing gazillionaires with valet parking when arriving for intimate dinners at the White House.

Liberals’ Illegitimate War on Women

Originally posted at American Thinker

Willingness or unwillingness to prevent or terminate a pregnancy appears to be the sole criterion upon which liberal women judge how well they’re being treated.  It’s stunning that the left actually embraces the idea that taking a stand for life instantly translates into hostility toward, or contention with, the female gender.

The right to abort the unborn is so precious to left-leaning women that they are even willing to overlook the fact that 50% of the fetuses losing their lives in abortion clinics are of the gender they believe Republicans are currently waging war against.  The truth is that it’s pro-choice women who discriminate; they’re fine with liberal men being womanizers, perverts, and adulterers, and if women like Juanita Broderick consider what Bill Clinton did to her a “legitimate rape,” then the men they admire can even be alleged rapists.

But if the offender is a Republican, liberal women react quite differently.  Take for instance the beleaguered Republican congressman from Missouri, Todd Akin, who messed up big time when he attempted to explain his pro-life position by saying that it’s never right to abort a child conceived as a result of a rape.

When asked to explain, Akin fumbled and, in the process, suggested that oftentimes pregnancy does not result from rape.  Asked to elaborate, Akins explained his flawed logic: “It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

As a result, the same liberals who refuse to acknowledge the racial undertones in Joe Biden’s “they gon’ put y’all back in chains” remark immediately interpreted “legitimate rape” to mean that Republicans don’t take rape seriously and that the right is truly at war with women.

It’s certainly perplexing how pro-death liberals, all of whom choose to believe the lie that an infant growing in its mother’s womb isn’t a living human being, are now attempting to reinforce the case for their fictional Republican war on women based on one man assuming that the trauma of violent rape could prevent pregnancy.

Scientific verification or not, there’s nothing that gets liberal ire up more than perceived disrespect for the sacrosanct right to choose.  That’s when abortion-loving leftists like Barbara Boxer sprout horns and breathe fire.

Therefore, it wasn’t surprising that at a Planned Parenthood event in California, radical abortion advocate Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) referenced Akin’s “legitimate rape” statement and used it as gotcha fodder to stir up the abortion-obsessed women in attendance, saying, “There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals.”

Boxer linking Akin’s poorly thought-out comment to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is as ridiculous as Republicans claiming Joe Biden’s “chains” rant implies that Southern Democrats want to reinstate slavery.

Absurdity doesn’t matter, because even logic couldn’t stop Babs from exploiting Todd Akin’s faux pas and using his misstatement to whip up the girls’ outrage by calling the remark a “direct outgrowth” of the “extreme positions on abortion held by Republicans.”

In Barbara Boxer’s irrational pro-choice world, wanting to save the lives of the innocent is “extreme,” and the desire to add to the 60 million human beings who have already been aborted since 1973 is considered measured “moderation.”

Warming up the crowd in anticipation of the big pro-abortion celebration due to take place in Charlotte, NC, Barbara inserted snarkiness into the discussion when she said, “There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I’m not kidding.”  Barbara Boxer is correct; the extreme “sickness” she’s referring to is called respect for the sanctity of life.

Senator Boxer finished up her down-with-Republicans comments by asking: “Where’s the outrage by Mitt Romney?”  Democrats may not be aware that Republicans are outraged, all right, and have been for decades.  The difference is that, unlike liberals, most Americans disgusted with the ubiquity of violence don’t differentiate, and are just as outraged over the vicious horror of rape as they are the unnecessary savagery of abortion.

Science Boxes in Barbara Boxer

Originally posted at American Thinker

Regardless of what one thinks about climate change and whether the theory is plausible or not, Barbara Boxer, with her 100% pro-choice voting record, talking about anything ‘endangering humankind’ is the height of self-deluded deception. During a press conference on Capitol Hill, Barbara said the following: “The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind. It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.”

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-CA), referring to a scientific ‘body of evidence’ to attest to the reality of climate change, is about as authentic a stance as atheist/evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins quoting Scripture to support his belief in the theory of evolution.

In 1993, 12 years after a United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee invited experts to testify on the question of when life begins, science buff Barbara Boxer assumed office.  According to a prominent physician who attended the hearing at that time, there was not “even a single expert witness who would specifically testify that life begins at any point other than conception or implantation.”

Testimony supporting life included statements from Dr. Jerome LeJeune, professor of genetics at the University of Descartes in Paris,  “discoverer of the chromosome pattern of Down syndrome,” who testified to the Judiciary Subcommittee that “after fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being…each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.”

The official Senate report on the testimony surrounding Senate Bill 158, the ‘Human Life Bill,’ summarized the issue this way: “Physicians, biologists, and other scientists agree that conception marks the beginning of the life of a human being – a being that is alive and is a member of the human species. There is overwhelming agreement on this point in countless medical, biological, and scientific writings.”

Maybe some of those same scientists would agree to sit down with Ms. Boxer and pick apart her statement as it relates to planetary global warming, only this time comparing it to aborting human beings residing within the womb.

Barbara Boxer chided those who reject the claims of global warming alarmists, saying that they “cling to a tiny minority view…wishing that climate change will go away.” Boxer argues that it’s “not a policy — it is a fantasy.” Yet, couldn’t that same logic be applied to the “fantasy” that Barbara Boxer and the pro-choice community cling to which, contrary to science, maintains that unborn children are not human beings?

Defender of both the environment and the destruction of embryos, Ms. Boxer continued in defense of climate change by telling skeptics that “Problems do not go away by pretending they do not exist. And the longer that the vocal minority insists on keeping their heads in the sand, the more it endangers billions of people around the globe and threatens to dramatically and negatively reshape the world as we know it.”

If Barbara Boxer is so concerned about the authority of science, maybe she should heed the words of the late Ashley Montague, geneticist and professor at Harvard and Rutgers, who believed that “The basic fact is simple: life begins not at birth, but conception.” Perhaps Dr. Montague could have explained to the woman fretting about “endangering mankind” that babies “do not go away” either, especially “by pretending they do not exist.”

Senator Boxer criticizes climate science cynics, alleging they are standing in the way of significant progress toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions both domestically and internationally. That means global defender Barbara Boxer should also understand that if Americans silently stand by while millions continue to exercise the right to choose, and the longer the majority of Americans insist on “keeping their heads in the sand,” the more endangered billions of unborn children around the globe will be.

Whether Boxer agrees with science or not, more than greenhouse gas, abortion has “dramatically and negatively [reshaped] the world as we know it,” both physically and morally. However, it is probable that Barbara Boxer opposes the view that blames abortion on demand on human irresponsibility and immorality, but does agree with scientists who believe that climate change results primarily from human activity.

Concerned about saving the planet, and despite scientific evidence which maintains that life begins at conception, Boxer has voted “No” on banning partial-birth abortions; “No” on restricting UN funding for population control policies; “No” on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions; “No” on criminal penalty for harming an unborn fetus during other crimes; and “No” on virtually every piece of legislation that protects human life in the womb.

Professing concern for scientific evidence, Barbara Boxer also “dismissed a series of hacked emails that…[some claim]…show climate scientists hiding data [and] raise questions about global warming.” Boxer maintains that the emails “were thoroughly studied, reviewed, investigated, and … found not to undermine the consensus on climate change in any way.”

Unable to attend the international climate change talks in South Africa, Boxer addressed the group gathered in Durban by way of a video message. The three-term senator urged negotiators to make “significant progress” on an agreement to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, and did so as strongly as she opposed Republican opponent Carly Fiorina at the 2010 California Senate debate. In the first debate, Boxer argued that “If [Fiorina’s] views prevailed, women and doctors would be criminals, they would go to jail. Women would die, like they did before Roe v. Wade.”

Thus far, dilation-and-curettage/cap-and-trade advocate Barbara has not yet shared whether or not her concern for technical exactness as it pertains to ‘endangering humankind’ extends to being as 100% sure that a fetus is not a human as she is 100% in support of abortion.

If Barbara Boxer is calling upon science as the basis to promote legislation that protects the environment, shouldn’t that same devotion to scientific proof extend to all policy, even if it debunks liberal myths such as: a fetus is not a human being? If preventing the destruction of humankind is truly her goal, it’s incumbent upon the esteemed senator from California to place science before ideology and renounce her support for abortion and her radical belief that a living breathing entity is not a full-fledged human being, deserving of human rights, until after it is born.

Micheline Mathews-Roth MD of Harvard University Medical School once said “It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception…our laws, one function of which is to help preserve the lives of our people, should be based on accurate scientific data.”

If scientific data is supposedly the key to Ms. Boxer’s support for policy that addresses greenhouse gases, then the words of Dr. Matthews-Roth should compel her, at least on the issue of life, to finally agree with Rick Santorum.

Electoral Demosaurus Extinction

According to recent scientific studies, “a third of all mammal species declared extinct in the past few centuries have turned up alive and well.”  In fact, “Some of the more reclusive creatures managed to hide from sight for 80 years only to reappear within four years of being officially named extinct in the wild.”

The idea of wiped out flora and fauna reappearing may enthuse worried conservationists. However, if species in the animal kingdom are able to resurface long after apparent extinction, then a similar threat looms when attempting to oust politicians from perches, lairs and feathered nests.

Long believed-to-be-departed mammals suddenly appearing in the wild, if theoretically applied to politics, generates apprehension for those hopeful that the Democrat majority will be permanently expunged from the Congress, Senate and White House. Yet despite the possible threat, it is comforting to know that at least the late great Robert “White Hood” Byrd (D-WV) and Teddy “Cape Lion of the Senate” Kennedy won’t be gracing the hallowed halls of power ever again.

Nevertheless, there are still quite a few never-say-die liberals haunting the political scene, leaving left-footed Demosaurus prints all over a right-of-center country, not to mention the criminal and the ethically challenged still eagerly planning to make political comebacks, i.e. former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Presently, there are numerous examples of politicians who ought to have been gone long ago being sighted around Washington DC.  Take for example, Jimmy “Red-cockaded woodpecker” Carter intermittently surfacing to hammer away at race issues and dead Kennedys.  And let’s not forget the indomitable Bill “Ozark Hellbender” Clinton.  Clinton turns up in diverse locations leaving a unique scent on everything from humanitarian causes to campaign stops for vulnerable incumbents.  Recently, Clinton the preservationist stumped for at-risk Congressman Barney Frank and zealously attempted to save America’s “Queen Conch” from impending doom.

Even elusive political relic Michael S. Dukakis, former Massachusetts Governor and failed 1988 presidential nominee, visited the White House offering strategy advice for the midterm elections. Dukakis, like the shy okapi, “vanished on the wildlife radar for decades.” Dukakis was nowhere to be found, and then suddenly reappeared like a cloven-hoofed okapi, leaving left-leaning imprints on the surface of the 2010 mid-term election.

In fact, the newly compiled list of mammals “back from the dead” reads like a who’s who of fossilized Democrats yet to be added to a certified roster of vanquished politicians.

Topping the list is the “Cuban Solenodon,” a species similar in nature to Progressive incumbent Alan Grayson (D-FL). The perpetually “rat-like” Grayson crawled out from a campaign hole to accuse Tea Party activists of being “people who… [25 years ago]… were wearing sheets over their heads.”

Grayson, complete with “scaly tail and toxic saliva,” is poised to be unseated in Florida’s Eighth Congressional District by Daniel Webster, who Grayson recently called Taliban Dan.  Florida voters should take heed; extermination at the polls is necessary to guard against a future Cuban Solenodon-style Alan Grayson comeback.

Revitalized rats aside, hope prevails, because “Many scientists believe the world is going through a new ‘mass extinction’ fueled by mankind – and that more species are disappearing now than at any time since the dinosaurs vanished 65 million years ago.” In theory, scientific predictions bode well if applied to the next two elections where mankind-caused ‘mass extinction’ is a needed remedy to depose ancient Demosaurus’ presently in power.

Even more important than mass-, permanent is necessary because according to scientific studies, “More than a third of mammal species that have been classified as extinct or possibly extinct, or flagged as missing, have been rediscovered.”

Another mammal rebirth is the Christmas Island shrew. Presently America is looking forward to removing the gavel from the liberal grip of Nancy Pelosi, who is one helluva prehistoric shrew herself. For the last four years, the Capitol building has been subjected to “high-pitched” Speaker squeaks throughout the rotunda. Thus, a majority of voters appear to be of the opinion that it’s time for Nancy to tunnel under a rock and stay put.

If polls are correct, habitat-dependent Pelosi is one step from demotion to an aisle seat. If all goes according to predictions, for the next State of the Union address, the Shrew will officially be de-perched and seated in the spectator section amongst the rabble.

Dr. Diana Fisher, of the University of Queensland, Australia, claims that in the animal kingdom, “Mammals that suffered from loss of habitat were the most likely to have been declared extinct and then rediscovered,” a precedent Ms. Pelosi will likely attempt to emulate.

In addition to the rats and shrews, back from obsolescence are flying foxes.  For wildlife lovers, a bat revival is a wonderful development, but spells disaster in the political realm. Roosting in the Senate is a colony of Democrat grey-head flying foxes. To name a few: Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Blanche Lincoln (D-AK), Patty Murray (D-WA), and Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). In the House, endangered flying foxes include the vulnerable Betsy Markey (D-CO), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), and youngling Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ).

Each and every Democrat woman in the House and Senate is inarguably more batty than foxy, larger than life, and personally responsible for causing America to cry out for permanent flying fox extinction.

One male casualty of primary banishment is a scaly chameleon named Arlen Specter (D-PA).  Other vulnerable endangered species include Senator Harry “Devil’s Hole Pupfish” Reid of Nevada, Russ “Warbler” Feingold of Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania’s “Eastern Mud Salamander” Joe “Refused to be Bribed” Sestak.

Scientists contend that “Species spread out over larger areas [are] also more likely to be wrongly classified as extinct.” Across the nation, from New Hampshire to California liberal Democrats are experiencing varied levels of political endangerment. Categories range from “critically endangered” to “conservation dependent” to a Pat Leahy (D-VT) “near threatened” leaving ultra-blue Chuckie Shumer (D-NY) and Daniel Inouye (D-HI) secure and “least concerned.”

“According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, 22 percent of the world’s mammals are at risk of extinction.” Democrats are acutely aware that political extinction looms.  If Republicans pick up the predicted 10 seats in the Senate, 17% of Democrat Senators stand to be driven out.  If at-risk Democrats lose a possible 50 seats in the House, 20% will be consigned to exile, after which “Devil’s Hole” Harry and Speaker Shrew will officially be categorized as critically endangered/soon to be extinct politicians.

However, in nature, “the complete data-set, 67 species that were once missing have been rediscovered,” which in politics is a phenomenon that must be prevented at all costs. A species cannot survive without an intact habitat. Dr. Fisher maintains that it’s unlikely endangered species “would have survived had [habitats] been cleared,” which is precisely why it’s time to clear havens occupied by mammals bearing Democrat markings. Ejecting the left from safe and protected native areas is the first step to ensuring extinction.

Flourishing Conservative philosophy has the muscle to choke off liberalism, ensuring the left is powerless to “gradually regenerate.” In turn, officially dismissed politicians will be discouraged from returning to Washington DC to reproduce and rekindle a predatory political genus that would benefit the nation much more by remaining extinct.
