Can’t beat economic laws…

Fox News has an article titled “Dems change tune after mocking GOP for ‘drill, baby, drill’” and the fact that the democrats were wrong again.

Back when gas topped $4 a gallon, Republicans chanted “drill, baby, drill” at rallies across the country — arguing more domestic drilling would increase supplies, reduce dependence on foreign oil and boost the U.S. economy.

Democrats, almost universally, mocked the GOP plan. In 2012, President Obama called it “a slogan, a gimmick, and a bumper sticker … not a strategy.”

“They were waving their three-point plans for $2-a-gallon gas,” Obama told a laughing audience during an energy speech in Washington. “You remember that? Drill, baby, drill. We were going through all that. And none of it was really going to do anything to solve the problem.”

“‘Drill, baby, drill’ won’t lower gas prices today or tomorrow,” Rep. Janice Hahn, D-Calif., echoed on the floor of Congress in 2012. “But it will fuel our addiction to fossil fuel.”

Today, Democrats are singing a different tune, as increased domestic drilling has led to a record supply of domestic crude, put some $100 billion into the pockets of U.S. consumers and sent world oil prices tumbling.

The price of a gallon of regular gasoline on Monday was $2.13 nationwide, and below $2 in 18 states.

The donkeys fought the law of supply and demand, and the law won….

If you are a lefty looking for whatever your “ism” du jour is…

As Obama’s true colors and ineptness finally overwhelm even the media’s most rabid attempts to control the narrative, and American people realize how much of a dimwitted idiot – inept asshole is fitting a name here – and that Obama’s promise to fundamentally change America definitely meant changes that would destroy the once great nation, and react accordingly, by showing their disapproval, it is no surprise to me that the Obamas and the left are desperate to silence the naysayers. Hence the preponderance of stories like this one where Obama tells about how the country is full of closet racists. Funny thing is that it isn’t even a month ago that I was actually standing in front of a fancy restaurant’s valet parking area, with a young lady of all things, having a discussion about the day’s events, when some idiot in a Mercedes pulled up and asked me to park his car. We both chose to laugh the whole thing off. After all, we were standing where people drop of their car, and the guy just assumed the wrong thing. Shit like this happens, and to always assume racism or some other ill intent is behind it, tells more about you and about the stupid attempt to perpetuate your narrative, than it does about the person that made the mistake.

Then you have Moochelle’s story about how she was asked to pull shit off a shelve at a Target. Must have happened a long time ago, because I doubt she does her own shopping these days, and if she does, I doubt it is at Target. Of course to her this happened because of the inherent racism of the person asking. Like her husband, she never assumed anything but ill intent and racism on behalf of the person that asked. My bet is that we are dealing with a short old lady that just figured the Wookie could reach the top shelve with ease, and asked. Moochelle, not proud at all of her country, as she herself has told us, immediately assumed racism was involved. After all who would ask a tall woman for help unless they assumed she was the help in the first place, huh? It’s just crazy to expect some stranger might want to help you out!

There is a nagging suspicion in me that I can not shake, and while I am inclined to chalk all this off to people looking for racism always finding it, whether it is there or not, and that is that I can’t let go of my feelings that that this shit is all made up anyway. We are dealing with a bunch of hucksters that want to control the narrative and take focus away from the problems they have caused, and they have used this very tactic, repeatedly, in the past. At this time when Obama and the left are imploding we sure seem to have a slew of leftist media peddled stories about all the various “isms” and abuses their special interest groups feed on all fall apart when closely scrutinized, haven’t we? From the leftist take on what happened in Ferguson and how the LSM chose to report it – until the facts bore out that story was a heaping pile of dung – to their take of Jackie’s frat party rape fest at a UVA by some fact checking challenged writer at Rolling Stone, we have had story after story peddled either fall apart or turn out to be blatantly made up shit. Conveniently, neither the story by Moochelle or the Manchurian candidate can actually be researched properly and validated, and I doubt anyone in the LSM would do so anyway if it could be done, as recent events have bore out.

Perspective matters, and we should keep that in mind whenever you hear one of these media sob stories peddling the grievance politics of the left, I tell you. And again, I have to admit that I am not a bit surprised that Obama’s promise of healing America and the post racial age, like all his other promises, fall flat. In fact, the age of Obama has brought us a lot more of the things candidate Obama told us he would do away with or fix. My only consolation is that people are finally wising up and this weapon that served the left so well in the past to squash any attempts at having a debate based on logic and facts, has lost its luster. More and more people can now immediately see this bullshit for what it is, and I do have to thank the media and the Obama’s for that.

One step closer to the revelation that the orders came from the WH

So now we have a Forbes article titled “Obama Justice Department Was Involved In IRS Targeting, Lerner Emails Reveal” which leaves no doubt that Eric Holder’s DOJ, which has been tasked with investigating the connection to the WH of all things, was part of the IRS scheme to attack political enemies of the left:

Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.

It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.

Ms. Lerner met with top officials from the DOJ’s Election Crimes Branch in October of 2010. Although Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice, No. 14-cv-01239), the DOJ coughed up dirt only on court order. Even then, the DOJ handed over only two pages of heavily redacted emails.

What’s more, the DOJ withheld 832 pages in their entirety. They revealed that Mr. Obama’s DOJ called an October 8, 2010 meeting with the IRS “concerning 501(c)(4) issues.” On September 30, 2010, the DOJ’s Election Crimes prosecutor emailed Ms. Lerner:

“Hi Lois-It’s been a long time, and you might not remember me, I’ve taken on [REDACTED] duties. I’m looking forward to meeting you, Can we chat in advance? I’m a [REDACTED]“

Ms. Lerner responded on October 2, 2010:

“Sure-that’s a good Idea [sic]. I have a meeting out of the office Monday morning, but will try you when I get back sometime early afternoon. You can try me at 202 283-8848.”

Documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS show that Ms. Lerner asked the DOJ whether tax-exempt entities could be criminally prosecuted.

Heh, that faux scandal Obama told us this was sure looks real to me, and the reason why Lerner has avoided testifying now absolutely makes sense. Of course, I am not surprised to find out she sought legal advice from the DOJ on how to abuse power. Considering that this DOJ’s primary function has been to attack the enemies of the Obama administration, coordinate criminal and illegal acts with other government agencies- such as gun running schemes to undermine support for the 2nd Amendment (Fast & Furious) or telling the EPA to usurp the power of congress when congress couldn’t pass some job killing special interest helping bullshit, for example – and to foster every and all sort of racial or sexist bullshit story that would help the democrats divert attention from their abysmal economic record, I suspect there is a lot more bad shit to be found out still.

In the end the facts will come out and we will have verification that the orders and coordination came from the WH. I don’t doubt that. These are criminals in charge of things these days after all, and criminals will commit crimes. The sad part is that they still feel they are going to get away with the crimes and are eager to commit more of them. This is what the most transparent administration evah! has amounted to. Shit, they went far beyond my wildest predictions. Of course, the Obamanauts will tell you they meant well and evil Boosh!, so there. Can you imagine the response if a republican was doing what these people are doing from the left ad the media? Fucking idiots.

If you doubted that there was some agenda in Ferguson

When the whole debacle in Ferguson was playing out I kept quit. That was mostly because I suspected we were being fed an enormous amount of lies and fabrications by a media eager to help out the democrats and Obama – and man, do they believe this racially divisive shit they peddle to be effective to their agenda – whom were getting a shellacking from disillusioned and angry Americans precisely because their focus has been on divisive shit like this, instead of dealing with the economic disaster that their policies have caused us all, to begin with. I suspected that when the details came out we would discover that the bulk of the stuff to peddle the racial nonsense would end up discredited. I do admit I expected pressure from the media, the DOJ, Obama, and the usual race hustlers that flock to these tragic events like flies do to a dead body, to force the grand jury to indict even if there was no case, so at least on that account I was pleasantly surprised. But being the cynic that I am, I suspected an agenda, and while this could be purely coincidental, I think it is not:

The father of the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” slogan has just been employed by the United States government.

Dorian Johnson, the star witness to the Michael Brown shooting and the man who was assisting Brown during the strong-arm robbery moments before Brown was killed, has been hired by the city of St. Louis.

According to STLtoday.com, “Jeff Rainford, Mayor Francis Slay’s chief of staff, has confirmed that Johnson was hired under a state grant through the city’s Agency on Training and Employment, or SLATE.”

Meeting the low income eligibility requirements, the 22-year-old will be holding the temporary position and will be making about $8.50 an hour.

Johnson told media that Brown had been shot from behind and then shot while surrendering to police with his hands up, both statements discredited by a majority of the evidence. Johnson will not be charged in the strong-arm robbery of the store, authorities said.

Yeah, that doesn’t smack of a payoff at all. When you profit from racial tensions, despite all your assertions to the contrary, one should not be remiss in expecting you to not only see it everywhere, but to foster as much of it as you can while pretending to do the opposite. Who still doubts that race relations are at their worst since Obama and his crew have been dealing with this stuff and hinting that anyone that has a problem with their color – and I am talking about the fact that they are reds – is a racist, huh?

And I need to add that the problem goes beyond race. We have a plethora of fake rape stories to rile up the feminists, with all of the top ones falling apart. And lie after lie about economic improvement, when nothing of the sort is going on. Then there is the campaign to overwhelm every American system by rewarding law breakers, and then all for political gain, by people that think these freeloaders will help push things their way at the ballot box. Things are falling apart, and it costs $1 trillion to pay the cost of part of a year to keep the lights on, even when that’s the case. About the only respite the American people have gotten is related to energy costs as the price of oil and gas have dropped the costs associated with the products we get from them, and that all is happening despite the Obama administration and the agendas of the left. No “Good Times” going on these days.

I call BULLLSHIT cubed

So as Gruber shows his sorry ass up in congress to speak truth to power, it looks like the strategy adopted by the scumbags that straddled us with Obamacare after a massive campaign of disinformation, lies, and falsehoods, is to pretend that Gruber was telling the lies when nothing could be further from the truth. I guess the progressives have chosen to save face and hide their abuse of power and criminal behavior by accusing the scumbag that was making fun of the American people by pointing out what progressives think of US tax payers of doing the lying. The American people have not been fooled, and they have voted accordingly.

This bait and switch shit that these democrats are now engaged in is classic. Man does the number of unlucky people thrown under that Obamacare bus keeps rising. Landrieu got fried the other day for and I am sure it was a response of her selling her Obamacare vote. The usual lefty moonbats are now actually saying she lost because she didn’t go left enough, which is just more of the same nonsense as Cummings pretending that Gruber was lying about how the demcorats lied to pass Obamacare. Remember that Obamacare was passed on a purely partisan vote that required major payoffs because that thing was exactly the disaster we have now waiting to happen.

While you watch the freak show unfolding in Congress, remember that every one of these democrats that pushed that abomination on us and are now acting all butt hurt and indignant, then told us we had to pass it to see what was in it. Don’t fall for the attempt to do damage control by acting indignant and the accusations that Gruber was doing anything other than pointing out what they all did. Fuck the lot of them.

More proof the WH was working with the IRS to target an enemies list

While the LSM continues to ignore the Obama Administration’s IRS scandal, a scandal that makes what Nixon did look like child’s play, and your average lefty progtard will parrot the “Faux scandal” meme every time they can get away with it, the truth is that ,a href=”http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/225970-watchdog-irs-withholding-docs-on-taxpayer-data-requests” target=”_new”>they have things they need to hide because they were abusing their power and breaking the law:

A watchdog group says the IRS is withholding documents between the agency and the White House that show inappropriate requests for taxpayer data, according to multiple reports.

Cause of Action, a nonprofit group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking for all correspondence between the IRS and White House about requests for tax returns of businesses or individuals.

The Treasury inspector general for tax administration has told the group that there are more than 2,000 documents potentially related to the request.

A court has said the agency must hand over the documents. But IRS officials have said that they will not release the documents, citing a part of the tax code that protects the confidentiality of individual tax returns.

It is not clear what is contained in the documents, but Cause of Action said they might be evidence of White House misdeeds.

“That indicates scandal,” said Daniel Epstein, a spokesman for the group.

“Now, potentially, there’s confidential tax information going from the IRS to the White House. Potentially — we don’t know, we’d like to see,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been a critic of the IRS under the Obama administration, said late Wednesday on Fox News.

Of course they are going to deny any wrong doing and lie about the fact that they are not abusing their power and breaking the law. The Obama WH, the big government bureaucracies that are replete with stinking progressive drones, and the demcorats in general, are doing this sort of criminal and illegal shit on practically a daily basis. The problem is that everyone, from the media which has abandoned its job of the watchdog of the American people to the majority of the political class, is all turning a blind eye to this shit. Too many of the people in the Obama administration should really be wearing orange overalls and working in a prison shop making license plates or making calls for companies selling crap or scamming people for some cause.

Black Nixon on steroids was unavailable for comment either because of golf or fund raising commitments.

I think it will come even sooner..

MRC TV has a piece up about how the demise of Social Security is coming far earlier than even the worst case projections put it at, but then again, as the first commenter pointed out, one has to wonder if these new projections even take into account the impact of Obama’s new executive order that would allow millions of illegals that have not paid or paid a pittance to now suckle at the government’s teat.

I am putting my faith in what I will be able to save in my own 401(k) plan, and not counting on SS for a penny. I have known that by the time I could collect from that failed system it would likely be belly up or rigged to pay nothing of value. Of course, all my planning to not need SS might be for naught if these progressives, after they collapse the economy and break everything else in their campaign to redress the ills their policies cause, decide that raiding private accounts is justified – because of “social justice” or some other such catchy bullshit.

Let the good times roll!

More Obamacare lies in perspective

The other day one of the sad libs I usually have the pleasure of running circles around was all in a huff and telling me how Obamacare numbers were up and things were finally coming together. I knew better than to believe the bullshit these propagandists peddle – this administration and the democrats have a history of lying about the facts and real numbers on things ranging from the billions they pissed away paying off their buddies in either the porkulus or the TARP shenanigans to the lies about unemployment or inflation numbers, and need we be reminded about how they lied to get the CBO to score Obamacare as something other than a fucking pile of shit with whip cream topping – and I went a looking for the real facts, and lo and behold, it’s more of the same:

With enrollment data now available for the second quarter of 2014, it is possible to construct a complete picture of the changes in health insurance coverage that occurred during the initial implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly known as Obamacare. The data show that in the first half of 2014, private health insurance enrollment increased by a net of 2,465,586 individuals. That net figure reflects the fact that 61 percent of the gain in individual coverage was offset by a drop in employer group coverage. During the same period, Medicaid enrollment grew by 6,072,651 individuals. Thus, while a total of 8.5 million individuals gained coverage, 71 percent of that net coverage gain was attributable to the Obamacare expansion of Medicaid to able-bodied, working-age adults.

And remember, we are all paying premium dollar – rates for all of us have been skyrocketing, and anyone saying otherwise is either full of shit or such an aberration that statistically they can be discounted – for this Medicaid expansion. The question begs to be asked: wouldn’t it have been cheaper and simpler to just enroll all these people into Medicaid in the first place? Then again, the agenda as we have been told by Gruber was never to actually make healthcare more accessible, more affordable, or better in any way, but to create an unsustainable and expensive system that would milk the productive dry and gave government an undue power to run people’s lives while it lasted. After all, the plan is to collapse the system and then institute a government controlled single payer system. Then the progressives can really set up those camps they always pine about for their enemy lists.

While we were eating Turkey and watching football…

The fucking crooks in DC, busy bankrupting this country as part of the plan of destroying it the current president’s administration has been on, printed over $1 trillion of new money to pay off debt obligations on money they borrowed:

The Daily Treasury Statement that was released Wednesday afternoon as Americans were preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving revealed that the U.S. Treasury has been forced to issue $1,040,965,000,000 in new debt since fiscal 2015 started just eight weeks ago in order to raise the money to pay off Treasury securities that were maturing and to cover new deficit spending by the government.

During those eight weeks, Treasury took in $341,591,000,000 in revenues. That was a record for the period between Oct. 1 and Nov. 25. But that record $341,591,000,000 in revenues was not enough to finance ongoing government spending let alone pay off old debt that matured. The Treasury also drew down its cash balance by $45.057 billion during the period, starting with $126,568,000,000 in cash and ending with $81,511,000,000.

The only way the Treasury could handle the $942,103,000,000 in old debt that matured during the period plus finance the new deficit spending the government engaged in was to roll over the old debt into new debt and issue enough additional new debt to cover the new deficit spending.

This mode of financing the federal government resembles what the Securities and Exchange Commission calls a Ponzi scheme. “A Ponzi scheme,” says the Securities and Exchange Commission, “is an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors,” says the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“With little or no legitimate earnings, the schemes require a consistent flow of money from new investors to continue,” explains the SEC. “Ponzi schemes tend to collapse when it becomes difficult to recruit new investors or when a large number of investors ask to cash out.”

If you or I, or for that matter any private entity tries to pay off its debts in this way, we will end up in jail. The government however keeps pretending money grows on trees so the political elite can keep their vote buying schemes and scams going long past the expiration date. And their mouth pieces in the LSM just go along because of Black Jesus and their allegiance to donkey dick. Socialism as practiced by the progressives is the bane of humanity and the harbinger of real dark times. Mark my words, but look at what many of them are doing.

Adding up 2 and 2..

So Judicial Watch has finally managed to fight through the bureaucratic nonsense and the illegal maneuvering and lies from the age of Obama DOJ to obtain documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal using FOIA requests, and have posted what they have received on their site. Something already found since these documents were turned over on November 18th, lends credence to the belief so many of us have that the WH and the DOJ where actively working together to suppress any and all reporting on their reasons for and involvement in the criminal Fast & Furious scandal. Specifically we have an email detailing the collusion to force the one reporter really looking into this crime – Sharyl Attkinson from CBS – to stop. And I am willing to bet it doesn’t end there. In the end we will hopefully find the truth despite the obfuscation. Holder wearing an orange jumpsuit, at a minimum, would be kharmic, but I suspect a presidential pardon will be issued.
