Obama Offers Africa Air-Conditioned-Limo Energy Conservation Talk

Barack “Colossal Carbon Footprint” Obama ratcheted up the hypocrisy another notch on his $100 million, cargo-plane-polluting excursion to sub-Saharan Africa. While Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Bush were in Zambia renovating a cervical cancer screening clinic, Barack was announcing his Power Africa energy initiative.

Power Africa includes the distribution of Soccket soccer balls that create and store kinetic energy during play. After the balls are kicked around a bit, they can be taken home to the grass hut to plug in a lamp in hopes that grateful Africans will use the light to look at pictures of their hero Barack Obama, who plans to invest $7 billion in energy access programs he approves of in Tanzania and across Africa.

But wait! The African people shouldn’t get all excited, because when the president was speaking in Johannesburg, South Africa at a town hall function, his lofty plan to bring dependable energy to the second largest continent on the planet came with an interesting caveat.

Obama, who spares no expense when it comes to his own comfort, told people who subsist in poverty that if air conditioning in arid, scorching Africa and automobiles and large houses were the norm in places that don’t currently enjoy such luxuries, “the planet will boil over.”

Speaking to African youth, Obama managed to send an energy conservation message to selfish energy-using Americans while simultaneously tamping down the expectations of African children hoping to one day have what Americans take for granted when he said: “Ultimately you think you [sic] about all the youth that everybody’s mentioned here in Africa, if everybody’s raising living standards to the point where everybody’s got a car, and everybody’s got air conditioning, and everybody’s got a big house the planet will boil over – unless we find new ways of producing energy.”

Allow me to translate: “I have everything, and you have nothing. However, if I have my way you’ll continue to have nothing while I continue to enjoy everything, and do so while hypocritically advancing an energy policy that won’t impact my comfort level in the slightest.”

Then he said, “And tomorrow, or the next day when I visit Tanzania, I’m actually going to be going to a power plant to focus on electrification,” which sounds more like what they did to atomic bomb spies Ethel and Julius Rosenberg than Power Africa.

Nevertheless, Barack Obama is a man who lives in that big White House in America, the one his wife considers a prison. Mr. Obama and his tag-along entourage, although concerned about emissions, travel in luxury, guzzling gas in limousines and “the Beast,” and burning up jet fuel for Air Force One and flights for the hangers-on, plus helicopters and huge cargo planes.

Energy hog Barack Obama has the audacity to touch down in Africa, suggest that everyone embrace gay marriage, and then proceed to tout an energy program that includes kinetically-powered soccer balls with built-in outlets as one answer to Africa’s problems.

After that, he motorcades over to a town hall event and informs the youths, most of whom live in abject poverty, that air conditioning, automobiles, and large homes are out of the question for them because if they indulge in so much as a fraction of the energy use he gobbles up all day every day, they will cause “the planet to boil over.”

Barack Obama’s Excellent Israeli Adventure

It’s Passover, and although Barack Hussein Obama’s lineage is far removed from that of Abraham, the man should at least put a little of the emergency transfusion blood that they bring along in the president’s motorcade over the lintels of his door.

Mr. Obama’s first trip to Israel as president was similar to his Jakarta jaunt in 2010 and his “Return to Moneygall” tour in 2011.  In Indonesia, the trip was cut short when Java’s Mount Merapi began spewing ash in Air Force One’s direction.  In Ireland, while revisiting his roots, Obama’s limo got hung up on a bump as it left the U.S. embassy.

In Israel, the trouble started when someone filled the engine of the president’s $1.5-million armored limo with gasoline instead of diesel fuel.  Then the vehicle biblically dubbed “The Beast” had to be towed like a busted parade float through the streets of Tel Aviv on a flatbed truck.

It’s unlikely that Obama recognized the parallel, but filling up a diesel-powered car with gasoline is a perfect analogy for what he has done to America.  A clueless Obama insists on filling the nation’s tank with the wrong energy, and now America is broken, in need of repair, and praying to God that an alternate vehicle comes along to save us.

Nonetheless, after “The Beast” was demoted, Barack Obama, who everyone knows is perfect, was overheard apologizing to Bibi Netanyhu for his 600-person back-up team, saying, “It’s embarrassing, our entourage.  My wife, Michelle, teases me mercilessly.”

Instead of blaming the help, Obama should have apologized for the conversation he had with Nicolas Sarkozy at the 2011 G20 summit that was picked up on an open microphone.  It was there that Sarkozy said of Netanyahu, “I cannot bear Netanyahu; he’s a liar,” to which Obama responded, “You’re fed up, but I have to deal with him every day.”  As Air Force One touched down at Ben Gurion Airport, an observant Israelinews commentator concisely summed up the Bibi/Barack relationship: “To tell the truth, they can’t stand one another.

Rising above the rancor and deciding to let bygones be bygones, Obama greeted Netanyahu, saying, “Good to see you…and it’s good to get away from Congress.” The president’s best effort at mending fences was to tell Bibi Netanyahu, who knows full well that Obama despises him, that there’s actually an entity he despises even more.

Immediately following those cordialities, there was a state reception with Israeli President Shimon Peres, whom Obama called “brother,” and Mr. Netanyahu, whom Obama did not call “brother,” after which the president inspected the Iron Dome battery and met with Israeli Defense Forces.

From there Obama flew to Jerusalem for another reception at Peres’s home.  That was where the Teleprompter Thespian put on his best Talmudic storyteller face and quoted from Honi and the Carob Tree.

Barack Obama, who’s so adept at planting seeds of dissension and division here at home, left his mark in Israel by planting symbolic “seeds of progress … security … [and] peace.”  Calling to mind Jesus’s words — “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots” — the Israeli government plans to inspect the Jackson magnolia Obama planted in the Holy Land.  If the sapling fails the inspection, the newest addition to Peres’s presidential garden will be uprooted.

After the tree ceremony, Obama visited Israel’s Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem.  Disregarding the 55 million humans tragically slaughtered since 1973, it was at Yad Vashem that the man who supports another holocaust called abortion emphatically declared that “[a] holocaust will never happen again.”

Donning a yarmulke, Obama relit an “eternal flame next to a stone slab above ashes recovered from extermination camps after World War Two.”  While there, President Pro-Choice said, “We have a choice to acquiesce to evil or make real our solemn vow — never again.”

Obama pointed out that “we could come here 1,000 times, and each time your heart would break.”  If the patron saint of NARAL really wants to comprehend heartbreak, he should check out abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial up in New Black Panther poll-watching territory.

After Yad Vashem, Obama visited Mt. Hertzel and the graves of the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl and slain Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.  From there it was off to Netanyahu’s residence to discuss Iran, Syria, and the fate of Israeli spy/U.S. citizen Jonathan Pollard, currently serving life in a maximum-security prison in Illinois.  Then a press conference and a dinner unlike the dinner Obama didn’t invite Mr. Netanyahu to when he left the Israeli prime minister sitting alone in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.

At Binyamei Ha’uma, the president addressed a group of Arab and Israeli students that understandably excluded those irritated with Obama for inflicting himself on Jerusalem during the wind-up to Passover.  Obama dined with Peres, went sightseeing, and breakfasted with Netanyahu at the lavish King David Hotel, where he and his crew took up 233 rooms, and did it all before scurrying off to spend time with King Abdullah in Jordan.

It’s common knowledge that the president has a history of attracting fliesratslightning, and volcanic ash.  Therefore, it was standard fare when a fierce sandstorm grounded Obama’s helicopter, forcing him to travel instead by car to Palestine-controlled Bethlehem in a slow-moving motorcade, where he met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

Not counting car repairs and travel costs, the excursion totaled $500 million in unblocked aid to the Palestinians, $200 million to the Jordanians, and a tow truck full of meaningless platitudes to Israel.

And so, at the end of Obama’s Israeli vacation, the broken-down Beast and the backup blood were loaded back onto a cargo plane for the flight home.  Barry and his souvenir kippah departed the Holy Land possibly liking Netanyahu a teeny bit more than Congress.  Left behind were angry Israelis and Palestinians, a still-pending Jackson magnolia, a wreath at Yad Vashem, remnants of an Exodus-like sandstorm, and visions of Barack’s big, butch, 18-foot-long armored limo being castrated by a tank of gas.
