Obama...in a word...bast*rd!

Obama refuses to cancel F-16s for Egypt, says arms deal serves U.S. "regional security interests"

From Jihad Watch / Posted by Robert Spencer

What interests? Against whom besides Israel will Egypt use these fighter jets?

"Egypt to Receive F-16s: State Department refuses to delay delivery to Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt," by Adam Kredo for the Washington Free Beacon, January 22 (thanks to Tom):
The State Department has refused to cancel or delay the delivery of several American-made F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, claiming that the arms deal serves America’s “regional security interests,” according to an official State Department document obtained by the Free Beacon. 
The news that the Obama administration would uphold an aid package to Egypt that included the military hardware prompted concern on Capitol Hill from lawmakers who said the deal was not prudent given the political situation in Egypt, where Muslim Brotherhood-backed President Mohammed Morsi has clashed with democratic protestors.
“Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak,” Fox News reported Tuesday.
“President Morsi has failed to promote promised democracy in his country and neglected to continue Egypt’s legacy of maintaining peace in the region,” said Senator James Inhofe (R., Okla.). “I am alarmed and disappointed in the Obama Administration’s decision to decline my request to delay delivery of F-16s for further consideration.”
The State Department maintained in a January 8 letter to Inhofe that the arming of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood serves the U.S.’s “regional security interests.”
“Delaying or cancelling deliveries of the F-16 aircraft would undermine our efforts to address our regional security interests through a more capable Egyptian military and send a damaging and lasting signal to Egypt’s civilian and military leadership as we work toward a democratic transition in the key Middle Eastern State,” the State Department said.
“Egypt is a strategic partner with whom we have a long history of close political-military relations that have benefited U.S. interest,” said the letter, which was authored by assistant secretary for legislative affairs David Adams. “For the past 30 years the F-16 aircraft has been a key component of the relationship between the United States military and the Egyptian Armed Forces.”
“Maintaining this relationship and assisting with the professionalization and the building of the Egyptian Armed Forces’ capabilities to secure its borders is one of our key interests in the region,” Adams wrote.
“Egypt continues to play an important role in the regional peace and stability,” according to the letter. “In all of our engagements with President Morsi and his staff, they have reaffirmed Egypt’s commitment to its international agreements, including its peace treaty with Israel.”
“Egypt was instrumental in negotiating the Gaza ceasefire, and continues to work with the parties involved to implement it and secure a more lasting peace,” the letter states.
Morsi was recently criticized for calling Jews the “descendants of apes and pigs.”
Observers on Capitol Hill said that it is dangerous to arm an unstable Islamist regime.
One senior GOP aide familiar with the deal said he is ”incredulous that a country that doesn’t have peace and stability within itself is playing ‘an important role in regional peace and stability’ as this letter claims.”
Indeed.

Obama's Orwellian Inaugural Address

Obama's Orwellian Inaugural Address

On Monday, President Barack Obama delivered a monumental address to the nation. It wasn't monumental in terms of rhetoric -- in fact, it wasn't even memorable. It was monumental because it signaled for the first time just how grand Obama's ambitions for the left are. No longer is the left content to wage a war against Constitutional principles on behalf of a Marxist philosophical system. Now they will attempt to convince the American people that Constitutional principles dictate Marxism.

Obama opened his address by quoting the Declaration of Independence: "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Declaration of Independence sets forth a vision of limited government designed to avoid tyranny. But Obama, employing all the linguistic slight-of-hand in his multitudinous bag of tricks, had a plan to turn the Declaration inside out.

He began by rendering the document meaningless. As it turned out, "when times change, so must we." More importantly, when times change, so must our concept of liberty. Obama said, "our generation's task [is] to make these words, these rights, these values of life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness real for every American." But what do those high-sounding phrases mean? Obama said they have no meaning: "Being true to our founding ... does not mean we all define liberty in exactly the same way or follow the same precise path to happiness. Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time."

In other words, liberty has no meaning.

It is simply a lie to state that our founders did not have a singular definition of liberty. They did. It is expressed in the Declaration itself. Liberty, says the Declaration, is freedom from government "abuses and usurpations." It is not government guarantees of healthcare, pensions and food stamps. The Constitution was ratified in order to preserve the founders' vision of liberty and to prevent a "good government" from usurping power in order to achieve the social engineering the left adores.

Obama knows this just as his progressive predecessors knew this. That's why Woodrow Wilson despised the Constitution. So does Obama. But unlike Wilson, Obama realizes that the American people still like the Constitution. And so he must somehow read his anti-Constitutionalism into founding philosophy itself.

And so he turns liberty into a meaningless word. But it is there that the magic show truly begins. Once liberty is meaningless, how can government preserve it? Only by giving each individual his or her heart's desire. As Obama said, "preserving our individual freedoms," he said, "ultimately requires collective action." This is Orwellian in its reversal of language. Individual freedoms require government to leave us alone, aside from protecting our lives and property rights.

But for Obama, individual freedom cannot exist in the absence of government.

What of those individuals who define liberty in the way the founders defined it? In Obama's Orwellian world, they are anti-liberty, because government is liberty. Obama used the phrase "We, the people" -- the first words of the Constitution -- no less than five times. Each time, substituting "government" would have been more accurate. For example, "We, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity." How? Via government redistributionism. "We, the people," said Obama, "will respond to the threat of climate change." How? Through the government.

Government is liberty. Freedom is tyranny. Individualism is collectivism.

And the Constitution is meaningless unless it is being wielded as a club against those who actually value the founding ideology for which it stands.

Welcome to Barack Obama's second term.

Let the Democrats Shoot Themselves in the Foot

Let the Democrats Shoot Themselves in the Foot
For the liberal establishment, “political courage” means a politician spitting in the face of his conservative constituents. The President’s gun proposals demand such political courage, and we conservatives ought to be all for it.

There are people who really believe President Barack Obama is some sort of cunning political grand-master, plotting out the checkmate ten moves ahead of his plodding opponents. Nonsense.

He’s actually President Peter Principle, failing ever upward thanks to the disarray of his opponents.
Just when you think he might be clever enough to score his cheap points off of Newtown and turn back to beating the hapless House GOP over taxes he doubles down on guns. This guy probably hits on a 19 with the dealer’s 6 showing.

He made the big announcement of his 23 executive orders and his gun-grabbing legislative wish list in a ceremony so packed with kids that it’s surprising the Wiggles didn’t show up to sing along. They would have had more policy credibility than Biden. The executive orders were astonishingly lightweight – most of them were along the lines of directing Bureaucrat A to talk to Bureaucrat B about synergizing the synchronization of their coordination. He also clarified that Obamacare doesn’t prevent doctors from adding your guns to your weight and your blood pressure on the list of things to pester you about.

On Capitol Hill, the half-dozen or so Democrat senators who somehow nabbed seats from red states back in 2008 reacted to the President’s promise to pursue ban on useful weapons and standard magazines with about the same level of enthusiasm displayed by critics greeting the release of a new Nickelback album.

“Political courage” is easy when you've run your last campaign or when you’re writing editorials for the New York Times. It can be downright dangerous to your career when you’re facing the voters in Arkansas and have to explain why you decided that because some Yankee psycho shot up a school they need to disarm themselves to please that guy in the White House and the gang at the New York Times.

The House Republicans, astonishingly, played it well, withholding comment until they see what Harry Reid gets passed out of the Senate. This is as it should be – making this the Democrats’ problem.

Fact is that this is a great opportunity for the Republicans to really get to work for the sake of the country.

No, not by passing laws – there are too many laws already. The work they can do that will truly help this country during this Congress is handing embarrassing defeats to Barack Obama, making him expend his political capital for nothing, and damaging the electoral prospects of his enablers in the Senate. Liberals are the problem; the GOP needs to solve that.

Yes, gun control legislation is vital for our country, but not substantively, as nothing being proposed would have made the slightest difference in what happened at Newtown. It’s vital because it’s a chance to defeat the liberals in clear and meaningful way.

Now, we need to give the Republicans some credit – we cannot underestimate their ability to blow a winning hand. In the Senate, a lot depends on the whether the squish caucus in the World Greatest Deliberative Body can resist boot-licking the liberal establishment and providing bipartisan cover for the red state Democrats.

It’s easy to imagine Lindsay Graham or one of the other Senate pseudo-cons scoring themselves a handful of cocktail party invitations by stroking his chin on “Meet the Press” and explaining that, of course, no one would need a semi-automatic rifle for hunting.

But then maybe Harry Reid’s obnoxious behavior of late will inspire the GOP Senators to put schadenfreude above sycophancy. It’s got to be a temptation to watch Nevada’s Pride trying to thread the needle on his own “A” rating on guns while dealing with blue state liberals insisting on starting the march to confiscation, red state Democrats freaking out about 2014, and a President whose every utterance gets the NRA 10,000 new members.

Senators, for once, control your urge to blow an opportunity in exchange for a kind word from the WaPo.

Don’t throw this guy a life preserver. Watch him tread water as you giggle and point.

The House is the place to really start dealing the pain. Wait until something crawls out of the Senate over the mangled careers of a bunch of red state Democrats – hopefully with zero GOP votes – and then shift the paradigm.

Give the President some of the dough he wanted as part of his 180 degree shift on the “crazy”, “insane”, “evil” idea of actually protecting kids with armed security. Just make sure everyone knows how you’ll back the President on his backing of the NRA’s common sense proposal.

And no, the federal government has no legitimate business involving itself in school security, but this is not the time to rediscover federalism. Peggy Noonan may cluck like a schoolmarm about you playing hardball, but saving this country requires this guy in the White House be a lame duck starting now.

Naturally, out must go anything like an assault weapon or standard magazine ban. He gets nothing in the win column. What’s important is what the House puts into the bill. Start with a clear and unequivocal statement of the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right by statute, as well as by Constitution, and direct that all laws must be interpreted in that light. Make sure you cite both the Commerce Clause and Militia Clauses (Article I, Section 8, Clause 15-16)!

Gee, reaffirming the fundamental individual right kind of puts the screws to folks who keep lying about how they don’t want to take our guns in kind of a pickle. It would force some welcome honesty. A statute like this would also provide a backstop against the next time the Supreme Court has five liberals and decides that the Constitution’s clear statement of the people’s right to keep and bear arms means nothing of the sort. It would also undercut the various state laws that infringe upon the right. Oh, and best of all, no rational red state Democrats could ever consider voting against it. But if one does, even better!

And when rolling this out, send Boehner to the bar for the afternoon and put some of the GOP women out on the steps surrounded by moms and kids who protected themselves from scumbag criminals through the magic of firearms. Ask why the liberals are willing to sacrifice women to be raped, gays to be bashed, and minorities to be intimidated, all in order to disarm law-abiding citizens. Maybe some of the kids can even read their letters talking about how thankful they are that Mommy was able to use her Glock to keep her family from being murdered by that thug the liberal judge released on a technicality.

Yes, time for some political courage. After all, it’s for the children.

America...reality check time and reality 'aint pretty
By: Diane Sori

And so the $300+ MILLION party and love-fest is over. The streets have been cleaned, the flags taken down, and the much needed port-o-pottys for all the verbal crap spewed out are gone. Our 'lord and savior' has now been officially anointed to watch over us all for yet another four years...and if you think the first four were bad the next four will be a preview of hell.

Lets start with Barack HUSSEIN Obama's new agenda...my top 5 items on it anyway...an agenda straight out of a combination of Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, the Communist Manifesto, and the the most vile of the vile...the qur'an.

But before I go on what's with Obama being introduced in the public ceremonies as Barack H. Obama...too late as we all know his middle name is HUSSEIN and that he IS a muzzie through and through. And oh yeah, that's the name he used when he took the official oath of office on Sunday. Too late to try and hide it as the HUSSEIN part is the part that helps drive a good deal of his anti-American, anti-Constitutional agenda.

An agenda straight from the bowels of hell...invasive, intrusive government hell...

Number one on the Obama agenda is the dismantling of the Second Amendment...you know that pesky little thing that stands between 'We the People' and 'them'. Obama is shooting (pun intended) our constitutionally given right to keep and bear arms full of holes with his executive orders and executive actions. Never mind that the vast majority of the House, including some Democrats, think Obama has gone too far with this one, for they see his true agenda...to disarm 'We the People' and the Constitution be damned. Remember, like all successful dictators and thugs throughout history, to quell dissent you disarm the people first, thus gaining complete control over them. And Obama's also using a tactic so loved by his muzzie brethren...the use of children as political shields in order to demonize the other side...meaning us gun-loving, God believing, Constitution abiding patriots. Children pleading for gun control, children begging him to stop the violence, children sending in letters written in language way beyond their years (thanks to liberal parents putting their two cents in if NOT outright writing the letters for them)...yeah, when all else fails use children for sympathy...for empathy......use them to mask the soul of a coward and traitor.

Number two on the Obama agenda is immigration reform...but lets take the word 'reform' out of the mix and tell it like it is...fair and just reform NO way...it's securing blanket 'free-for-all' amnesty for ALL illegals. ALL illegals so that they can then be registered as Democrats...be given all sorts of freebies and handouts...continue to rape our health care system but now legally sanctioned to do so...and most importantly vote Democratic straight down the party line in ALL future elections. ALL illegals bought and paid for to continue the Obama legacy of turning our beloved America into a nation living off government handouts as the feds give away everything we have...everything we've worked hard for...as they give it to the now 'LEGAL ILLEGALS' without them having to work for it. After all, class warfare will be the driving force in Obama's second term as he 'redistributes' 'We the People's' wealth to the 'sponges' of society as payback for their undying loyalty, support, and adoration.

And now those Obama adoring, registered Democrat LEGAL ILLEGALS will be one of the driving forces in almost all he does from here on out.

Number three on Obama's agenda is the quadruple economic whammy of sequestration, the debt ceiling, a possible government shutdown, and jobs creation. Economic confiscation and seizure is on Obama's mind under the banner of sequestration as he will try to force small business owners to sell out to government controlled companies or put them out of business entirely...destroying the entrepreneurial spirit...the driving force of capitalism to be replaced by his version of socialism. The debt ceiling will become a non-issue as Obama gives himself the power to raise it as many times and as high as he wants while continuing to spend 'We the People' into deeper and deeper debt...racking up IOUs to foreign countries that are NOT our friends. Shutting down the government will be the thing he holds over Republican heads as he threatens with the race card the very weak persons in Congress into doing his evil bidding or else. And as for jobs creation...putting 'real Americans' back to work...what a joke that is as any new jobs created (if there are any created that is) will go to the now LEGAL ILLEGALS (have to reward them for registering as Democrats you know)...and now the LEGAL ILLEGALS will be a dominant election-deciding force in our country all while they take the jobs right out from under us.

Oh how happy that will be (insert sarcasm here)...even more uniformed, blind followers of the 'anointed one' deciding what's best for us 'real Americans'.

Number four on Obama's agenda is the final implementation of the infamous ObamaCare...better known as ObamaTax, the mother lode of all taxes (27 in fact) that will cause the price of health insurance premiums to skyrocket. ObamaTax complete with rationed medicine, death panels, and mandated regulations forcing private Church owned medical institutions to pay for abortions and contraceptives which goes against their religious tenets. ObamaTax...bad for hard working law abiding Americans...good for the now LEGAL ILLEGALS as they will get even more benefits and medical free stuff at the expense of 'We the People'...and I do mean 'at the expense of' because they will get breaks on their premiums (if they even pay any) while 'We the People' will be taxed to the hilt to pay for what they don't.

And number five on my Obama agenda list will be his total sell-out of our ally and friend Israel. Israel, the Biblical and UN mandated 'legal' home of the Jewish people will be divided, giving the so-called but actually non-existent Palestinian people a homeland at Israel's expense if Obama has his way. Obama will try and force Netanyahu (who yesterday was re-elected Prime Minister) to divide Jerusalem, giving parts to the muzzies, saying it will bring peace, while behind the scenes he will look away as Iran gains nuclear capabilities with Israel its first target. And turn a blind-eye Obama will as his muzzie god allah commands that the infidels be killed, and with Obama's first allegiance being to allah NOT to our one true living God and sure as hell NOT to Israel or the sworn enemies of his brethren...the Jews...watch out Bibi...don't turn your back even for a minute.

And so the $300+ MILLION inauguration festivities for the adoring sheeple are over...reality will now set in. Obama's goals are clear...the 2nd Amendment must go...ILLEGALS will become LEGAL...screw 'We the People' as its spend spend spend...ObamaTax will be medicines worst nightmare...and Israel might have to stand alone.

Welcome to Obamanation...hurry up 2016.
