Spin debunked.

Today’s big headline is that “Dow drops 200-plus points; stocks negative for July“, which coming on the heels of the almost surely to be found out as bunk revelation by the desperate Donkey mouthpiece of former fame and glory claiming for the umpteenth time that the economic recovery is here, should make you wonder.

Scuttlebutt I heard is that when you really break down that 4% growth the NYT claims happened you discover the bulk of it comes from government spending increases. Those can’t go on indefinitely, even if liberals think so, as Argentina proves yet again. And the fact remains that nobody is doing the math to figure out how this insane monetary policy impacts us. I see the dollar losing value day to day. I see inflation out there, clearly, while the LSM tells us constantly there is none of that. I see less economic growth overall, with every business, except for those doing business with the ever expanding public sector bureaucracy, in a holding pattern as they try to survive the economic calamity. You would think revelation after revelation that point out they are full of shit.

No worries. When the whole house of cards comes tumbling down, I have my investments in precious metals to keep me on top. Buy gold, silver, and lots of lead so you can make sure you keep the previous 2.


Liberal NIMBY strikes again

If you have been living under a rock, you might have missed the current Obama Administration approved invasion from the south that’s been causing problems like this one, that will in the end hit us all. Me, I think this is yet another one in the many arrows in this administration’s quiver of “Destroy exceptional America” that the Obama administrations people have been running. But the real interesting thing is how the liberal left, which constantly advocates for exactly this shit, when themselves impacted, suddenly doesn’t like the idea so much.

When the pols in my deep blue state were told they were going to have to help the Obama administration hide what they were doing, they said , hell no. The same has happened in the deep blue state of Maryland. That’s the same guy that called all the people that were saying that this disaster was Obama’s doing and on purpose, evil and implied they were motivated by racism. This story repeats itself everywhere.

The bulk of the nay-sayers are the libs that love this policy of letting in illegals that because of their dependency on government handouts will likely vote – and do so illegally – for the democrats. Some however, love the idea so much they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

Only in America. Ask the Guatemalans how Mexico treats then when they jump that border.

Could the LSM be seeing the light?

I was surprised to see that WaPo, which so far has done an awesome job of providing cover to the Obama administration when it comes to the plethora of scandals its involved in, was finally admitting that the whole IRS is no scandal meme from the admin now seems to bely a campaign of lies:

Anyone paying attention to the Internal Revenue Service scandal has been waiting for the next smidgen to drop. Well, two more hit pretty hard this week. At the president’s next encounter with the media, I will scream collusion if no one asks him for his exact definition of a “smidgen,” and if he thinks he has seen a smidgen of corruption yet. At this point, only the most gullible or culpable can continue to claim there is no compelling evidence in this case. Given the delays, lies and stonewalling, there is no viable argument against a special prosecutor.

In a stunning revelation this week, it was disclosed that former IRS official Lois Lerner told colleagues, “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails” and then proceeded to ask the IRS IT department, in an e-mail, “if [instant messaging] conversations were also searchable.” When she was told they were not, she e-mailed back, “Perfect.” This is a smoking gun e-mail in that it makes plain she had a cover-up in mind. There is no other plausible explanation.

Who knows how many of her colleagues and allies are breathing a sigh of relief upon learning that their e-mails to Lerner were destroyed and their instant messages not recorded? I think Lerner must have a sizable silent cheering section in Washington; people who are rooting for her to hang tough in pleading the Fifth and hoping that she does not go wobbly on them. I’ll bet her government retirement check is one check that never gets lost in the mail or delayed.

It gets even better. In another disclosure, Lerner’s attorney said that previous emphatic statements he had made declaring that Lerner did not print hard copies of her e-mails were not lies, just a “misunderstanding.” In this case, it is obvious what happened. When Team Lerner discovered that not keeping hard copies of some e-mails – which are considered government records – would in itself violate the law, it changed its story. It’s as simple as that.

The coordination among the Democrats and Lerner is remarkably brazen, even by today’s standards. While she lies low taking the Fifth, her mouthpieces in the Democratic caucus recite talking points that only she could approve. For example, during House oversight hearings on the scandal, Democrats seem to recite with great precision what Lerner did or did not do, what she knew and when she knew it. So while she hides the truth, protects her gang and stays clear of a perjury charge or worse, elected members of the Democratic party declare her innocence and tell her self-serving story.

Anyway, as long as Lerner stays cool and the Obama Department of Justice has her back, the administration obviously thinks it can run out the clock on this scandal. But these revelations are definitely meaningful smidgens. At what point does a flock of smidgens become irrefutable evidence that deserves an independent examination?

That bolded section is mine, because that’s exactly what the Obama administration is up to right now. The plan is to stall until the next presidential election, at which point they plan to steal the election for the democrat candidate which will then stall for as long as they can keep stealing the elections or simply decide to do away with the whole show that they have any respect for the constitution or the rule of law.

Nixon called and wants his presidency back, since he was forced to resign for wanting to do all the illegal shit that Obama and his crew have actually really done over the past 6 years. At this point this isn’t even funny to say anymore because it is so fucking true. We needs a special prosecutor, and these crooks all need to go to jail. The left is nothing but a crime syndicate.

Warren Is Coming, Hide Your Wallet

Remember last election, when all the pundits kept telling us that no one in history had ever won reelection with approval poll numbers so low, with unemployment this high, with the economy this bad, with (plug in any number of aphorisms used) indicating that Obama was toast? Clearly we were in uncharted territory. In a prior post Hal told us that we did it in the 1990′s (balanced a budget) and we can do it again, we are so far in the weeds that nothing is as it was. Your typical mutual fund prospectus warns ,”Past performance is no guarantee of future results”, our society now and in the future will be just like that, throw all the maxims right out the window, nothing should ever surprise us.

This weekend I was working a junior tennis event in a fairly affluent area of the Bay Area (more so than the rest)and I noticed a bumper sticker that read ,”A proud supporter of the Elizabeth Warren faction of the Democratic Party” (naturally the car was totally safe, only one sporting a GOP bumper sticker would ever get vandalized). I knew that Warren was really out there, to the left of pretty much everyone but I had no idea she garnered a real faction within the party. I fought off the urge to go find the owner, then disqualify his kid from competition (or just tell the kid after he won ,”Sorry, the progressive movement does not have winners or losers, so I’m “redistributing” that trophy you just won to some one with less talent, your dad will be so proud of you”)

Strange how a relative new comer, with even less experience (as if that was possible) then Obama could warrant their own bumper sticker. Knowing what a loon she was, a wave of doom washed over me ,”No way, a just God would not plaque us with another clueless progressive, right after this clueless progressive;

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me.

Obama has authorized his chief political adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to conduct a full-court press to convince Warren to throw her hat into the ring.
In the past several weeks, Jarrett has held a series of secret meetings with Warren. During these meetings, Jarrett has explained to Warren that Obama is worried that if Hillary succeeds him in the White House, she will undo many of his policies.
He believes that the populist Warren is the best person to convince the party faithful that Hillary is out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class. Warren, in his view, would carry on the Obama legacy after he leaves the White House.

How funny, someone so out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class can accuse Hillary of being out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class.

This development should send a chill up the spine of every thinking tax paying American. The 1/32 Cherokee (conveniently used to secure teaching gigs under “minority” status) is widely known for her “you did not build that” speech that Obama pilfered;

A pointy headed academician of the worst sort, she garners wide range support nationwide. On it’s face it seems far fetched, she has no political resume older than 2 years old, how could such a neophyte ever hope to secure the presidency, umm, Obama was an anomaly, right?

I don’t mind admitting harboring some Schadenfreude concerning Hillary and how constipated she must feel having to work for something she felt entitled to, and how delicious would a hair pulling primary debate between the two would be?

The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, someone else still pays for it? Next time some propagandist for the left tells you unemployment is heading in the right direction kick them in the proverbial balls (in my experience proggy women feel they have bigger balls than the proggy dudes anyway) and tell them that’s the direction we are heading in.
