Legacy of Failure & Corruption: 47 Reasons to Boot Obama Out
By Investors Business Daily

Nov. 3, 2012

The Record: Big media and left-leaning pundits are engaged in an effort to revise the history of Barack Obama's four years in the Oval Office. But the facts are clear: Obama is the biggest presidential failure in modern history.

Obama is unique among presidents in large part because he fails to even recognize his deficiencies and mistakes - or when he does, he learns the wrong lessons and doubles down on his policies.

Whether it's food stamp rolls that have swollen to 47 million, or the decline in household income that has left millions more with a lower standard of living, or the diminution of esteem for America around the world, Obama's time in office has been subpar.

A by-no-means-exhaustive list of President Obama's deficient results follows. In four short years, he has:
  1. Produced an anemic recovery. Economic growth and job gains have been slower than in almost every other recovery on record. Had this rebound merely matched the post-World War II average, 8 million more people would have jobs and the GDP would be $1.2 trillion bigger. Since the recovery began, real GDP has expanded 7.2% vs. an average at this point since World War II of 15.8%. Put another way, since the start of the recovery, real GDP per person - a measure both of productivity and standard of living - has fallen an unprecedented 1.5%.
  2. Created a large pool of unemployed. Official figures vastly underestimate the severity of joblessness on Obama's watch. Millions have given up looking for work, for example, and don't get counted as unemployed. Between January 2009 and September 2012, the number of people who aren't in the labor force shot up 8.2 million, while the number of employed rose just 787,000. Unemployment today is 7.9% - higher than when Obama entered office.
  3. Vastly expanded the disability rolls. As job prospects diminished, millions of workers applied for federal disability benefits and more than 3.8 million were approved. Today, a record 8.3 million workers are on disability. The result is millions of workers who are likely never to return to the workforce, and billions of dollars in new Social Security and Medicare costs.
  4. Created a food stamp nation. In less than four years, the number of people receiving food stamps has shot up by 15 million. Today, almost one in six Americans is on food stamps. The lousy economy is one reason, but the Obama administration has also pushed to get more people enrolled.
  5. Massively increased regulations. The federal regulatory state is one of country's few growth industries under this administration, with increases in federal spending and regulatory jobs far outpacing the private sector. A Heritage Foundation analysis found that in his first three years, President Obama imposed nearly four times as many new rules as Bush did in his first three, with a combined annual price tag of $46 billion. In a second term, Obama's agenda could add $128 billion to a regulatory burden that now weighs in at $1.8 trillion.
  6. Hammered the middle class. Median household incomes have dropped 8%, more than during the recession that was ending when Obama took over. From his inauguration to the end of last year, real median household incomes fell 4.7% to $50,054. Only the top 20% have seen gains; every other income group lost ground.
  7. Created business uncertainty. In an interview with the Des Moines Register, the president noted businesses are sitting on huge amounts of cash. And indeed, companies have a record $1.5 trillion in liquid assets. Obama said his policies will help unlock this cash if he gets a second term, but they are what have kept this money bottled up due to uncertainty about taxes, regulations and health costs - not to mention "you didn't build that."

    In a recent poll by the National Association of Manufacturers and National Federation of Independent Business, 55% of businesses said they would not have started up in today's economy, and 69% said the current president's policies have hurt their business.
  8. Not lived up to the promises of transparency. The Washington Post, typically a reliable ally of the president, reported that "new evidence suggests that administration officials have struggled to overturn the long-standing culture of secrecy in Washington." Benghazi and Fast and Furious stand out among many other secrets the administration is keeping to itself.
  9. Increased the debt by 50%. When President Obama was a candidate, he promised he would halve the deficit by the end of his first term. Yet every budget since he's been in office has had a larger deficit than the year before and the debt, $10.6 trillion when took office, now exceeds $16 trillion. Rather than cut the deficit by 50%, he's increased the debt by that much. Worse, the long-term liabilities we owe are exploding - by one estimated, we now owe $76 trillion more than we'll take in over the next half century or so. We're on the path to potential insolvency, the magnitude of which the world has never seen.
  10. Pushed ObamaCare. This is the most costly legislation ever, and surely one of the least popular, with over half of Americans saying they don't like it. It will cost as much as $1.5 trillion over the next decade, while imposing new taxes on business and robbing $714 billion from Medicare to pay for it all.
  11. Driven up health care premiums. President Obama said he would "bend the cost-curve down." His reforms would cut the premium for the average family by $2,500 a year, he said, but ObamaCare has done the opposite - costing an extra $2,400, a bigger jump in the last four years than in the previous four under George W. Bush. Health care spending is up an average of $4,500 per individual, reports the Health Care Cost Institute.
  12. Left minorities worse off. ObamaCare threatens thousands of entry-level jobs, as small businesses and big restaurant chains like McDonald's, Red Lobster, Olive Garden and Denny's plan to eliminate full-time positions to avoid the new mandates. Real household incomes for both blacks (down 2%) and Hispanics (off 1.6%) have fallen, while their unemployment rates are up. Joblessness among black youth approaches 30%.
  13. Doubled down on the housing debacle. The Dodd-Frank financial reforms have damaged the U.S. economy by wrongly blaming Wall Street for the financial crisis. It was in fact caused by federal housing policies, starting with President Clinton and leading to Obama, with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac out front.

    The two GSEs used a near-limitless supply of government-supported funding to push banks into lending to poor households, which couldn't pay the loans back.

    This was the start of the crisis. In 2007, Fannie and Freddie held or originated roughly $7 trillion of the $13 trillion in U.S. mortgages. Today, nearly 90% of all new mortgage activity is backed by the bankrupt giants, who have already cost U.S. taxpayers $160 billion and may end up costing $500 billion. Fannie and Freddie are still unreformed and unprivatized.
  14. Exploded spending and the deficit. Deficits have surged despite the president's pledge of a "new era of responsibility." This didn't happen because of "Bush tax cuts." No reputable study claims those cuts caused our trillion-dollar-plus deficits, which have added $5 trillion in debt in just four years. It was excessive spending.

    President Obama increased outlays to nearly 25% of GDP, a record. His plans envision roughly $47 trillion in new spending over the next decade. In the previous 10 years, just $25 trillion was spent. So spending will grow nearly 90%. Is it any wonder the U.S. has lost its AAA rating for the first time since 1917?
  15. Watched college costs surge. The talk was about making tuition more affordable for all. Tuition at four-year public colleges grew by 72% above inflation in the past decade, to an average of $8,244 last year, according to the College Board. Total student debt today is $1 trillion - more than $24,000 per graduate. The trend hasn't slowed under the president.

    Meanwhile, 50% of those who have graduated either can't find a job or are working in one that doesn't require a degree - a waste of a generation's skills, talent and training unmatched since the Great Depression.
  16. Dragged his feet on free trade. President Bush signed off on 17 new trade pacts, but President Obama has failed to sign any new agreements on his own watch. Meanwhile, China and the European Union have respectively signed or negotiated 19 and 25, winning new markets. Some 511 trade deals have been done around the world since 2007.
  17. Done nothing as crime has spiked. Violent crime has risen for the first time since 1993, with the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics' annual national crime victimization survey of 2012 reporting assaults up 22%, burglaries up 14%, thefts up 10% and property crimes up 11%. This may be the ultimate bitter fruit of Obamanomics: soaring crime as young people find they have no opportunities in a stagnant economy.
  18. Showed a lack of interest in his job. The commander in chief attended fewer than half of his national security briefings, failed to attend any of his jobs council meetings since 2010 and ignored his own bipartisan Simpson-Bowles Commission's recommendations on the budget. But he played more rounds of golf, had more date nights and spent more on White House dinners than any president in history.
  19. Blocked badly needed energy development. Obama has stood in the way of new sources of energy - from new pipelines to increased drilling - as gas, oil and electricity costs soared and America stood on the verge of technological revolution that would lead at last to energy independence.
  20. Killed the Keystone XL pipeline. If built, Keystone would transport an additional 830,000 barrels of oil per day to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast, including 100,000 barrels a day from the Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana. Its construction would create 20,000 jobs, and it would create hundreds of thousands more over its lifetime.
  21. Wasted billions on "green energy" jobs. After candidate Obama promised to create 5 million green jobs, just 355 direct jobs have been created annually - at a cost of $10 billion - since he took over. A classic example: Battery maker A123 Systems, which got a $250 million grant from "stimulus" money in 2009, created just 400 jobs before folding this year - about $300,000 a job. Now, those jobs are gone.

    All told, Obama has spent $86 billion on green stimulus, with nothing other than 50 bankrupt green companies to show for it - including Solyndra, First Solar and Ener1. He has also subsidized production of unsafe electric cars like the Chevy Volt, which few can afford or want to buy, and the Fisker Karma, a car built in Finland by Finnish auto workers.
  22. Waged a war on coal. While campaigning, Obama promised that if anyone built a coal-fired power plant under his watch, "it will bankrupt them." Since he's been in office, his Environmental Protection Agency has targeted coal for added regulations. Coal mines have been shut and jobs lost, and new coal plants are being required to install equipment that hasn't been fully developed yet.

    His EPA's regulatory bludgeon will kill an estimated 1.4 million jobs by 2020 and lead to a 23% jump in electric rates in states dependent on coal-fired plants due to EPA rules, fulfilling a 2008 campaign pledge to make electricity prices "necessarily skyrocket."
  23. Limited oil and gas exploration. Some 94% of federal onshore lands and 97% of federal offshore lands are now off-limits. That includes areas like the Green River Formation centered around Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, estimated to contain some 3 trillion barrels of recoverable crude oil - more than any other supply source on Earth. He's also kept Alaska's North Slope from being fully explored, keeping further millions of barrels of oil off the market as energy prices soar.
  24. Doubled gasoline prices by restricting supply. Gas prices were only $1.40 a gallon when he took office. The $2 difference in today's prices from where they were at the start of Obama's term adds $800 a year to the cost of operating a car that gets 25 miles per gallon and racks up 10,000 miles a year, a huge tax increase on the middle class, something he promised not to do.
  25. Restricted drilling permits. The Heritage Foundation reports that new drilling permits are down 88% from their historical average. Even shallow-water permits, supposedly unaffected by the moratorium, are down 11% from their high after a moratorium on deep-water drilling was imposed in the Gulf of Mexico.
  26. Opposed fracking and other new technologies. These new methods of extracting energy resources have increased oil production and created thousands of jobs on private lands. The EPA has pursued studies and supported environmentalists seeking to show fracking poisons drinking water, despite evidence that this long-used process is not harmful.
  27. Gutted our defense budget. Obama is slashing defense through direct cuts and a sequestration process agreed to as part of the Budget Control Act. Some $500 billion in defense-spending reductions are scheduled to kick in Jan. 2. These cuts come on top of the recently approved $487 billion in cuts to the Defense Department and threaten not only to jeopardize our national security but also gut our skilled defense workforce.
  28. Scrapped or cut badly needed weapons systems. Among these are the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter. The Heritage Foundation says that since President Obama took office, more than 50 major weapons programs at a value of more than $300 billion have been cut or delayed, reducing our ability to keep pace with our growing number of potential adversaries.
  29. Given away missile defense to appease Russia. After saying he would push the "reset" button with our former enemy, the president disappointed allies Poland and the Czech Republic by canceling plans for missile defense sites on their territories. He then promised Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have "more flexibility" to further disarm after Tuesday's election.
  30. Downsized the military. The Navy will shrink from 300 ships to 238 and lose two carrier battle groups needed to project American power and influence. Strategic bombers will fall from 153 to 101. Air Force fighters would drop by more than half, from 3,602 aircraft to 1,512 planes.
  31. Mishandled the "Arab Spring." Obama encouraged revolts across North Africa that have now installed the Muslim Brotherhood and related extremist Islamic groups to power in places like Libya and Egypt. Just like President Carter did 33 years ago, Obama watched as a U.S. ally - Hosni Mubarak - was deposed in Egypt and replaced by extremists. Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, likewise, was replaced by extremists.

    Syria, a nation on which our secretary of state lavished praise, has murdered thousands to keep Bashar Assad, a puppet of the Russians and Iranians, in power. Strangely, in 2010, when legitimate revolts broke out in Iran against the mullahs, the U.S. went silent.
  32. Ignored the rise of China. The Middle Kingdom has just commissioned its first aircraft carrier and is rapidly building a blue water Navy. It has built its own stealth fighter, a carrier-killing ballistic missile and is threatening Japan and other neighbors over territorial claims in the East and South China Seas. China announced that its military budget in 2012 would rise 11.2% on top of a 12.7% increase last year.
  33. Weakened ties with Israel. The president has assured he "has Israel's back." But Israel now faces very real threats of annihilation, with little clear support from its long-time ally. Fundamentalists in Egypt threaten to break the 33-year old peace treaty. Hamas in Gaza shoots hundreds of rockets at Israel's cities, while in southern Lebanon Hezbollah makes terroristic threats.

    Worst of all, Iran now has enough uranium to make five nuclear bombs, and will soon do so. Yet, President Obama has repeatedly snubbed Israel and its leaders, and refuses to draw "red lines" for Iran's misbehavior.
  34. Shrunk our nuclear arsenal. In a quest to seek a "world without nuclear weapons," the president is making the U.S. vulnerable to attack by rivals such as China and Russia, and rogue nations like Iran, North Korea and Pakistan that have nukes or may soon have them. The U.S. has about 5,000 warheads in its arsenal now, and the president's proposed reduction would take that down to 1,500 and eventually to 300. As our current arsenal ages, the commander-in-chief calls for a two-year delay in the development of a new generation of warheads.
  35. Surrendered U.S. sovereignty. Obama pushed the Law of the Sea Treaty, which would turn over freedom of navigation, formerly guaranteed by the U.S. Navy, to an International Seabed Authority run by Third World socialists and land-locked nations that would oversee a redistribution of the ocean's resources and wealth.
  36. Fumbled the pullout from Iraq and Afghanistan. He did this by understaffing ambitious nation-building operations, pulling out before Afghani and Iraqi troops were ready to defend themselves, and by announcing an inflexible pullout date from Afghanistan for purely political purposes, alerting our enemies. Thanks to Obama's "hearts-and-minds" strategy, which hamstrung our troops with impossible rules of engagement, the Taliban has surged instead.

    Two-thirds of U.S. deaths in Afghanistan have occurred since President Obama's surge. Hundreds have come at the hands of Taliban posing as Afghan security forces. With training now suspended over growing insider attacks, the Taliban has effectively sabotaged America's exit strategy. Yet instead of hitting harder, the U.S. is negotiating the release of their leaders from Gitmo. Net result: Iran is poised to take over or influence both countries.
  37. Lessened respect for the U.S. around the world. From the president of France remarking privately that President Obama was out of his league, to snide remarks from Chinese officials visiting the White House and commenting disapprovingly on U.S. debt, to Germany's refusal to take Obama's calls on the euro crisis and Britain's recent refusal to let U.S. ships dock at its Indian Ocean bases, it's clear the administration has lost influence around the world, even among allies and trading partners.

    More seriously, America's enemies pay little heed to the U.S. as it calls for nations such as Iran to heed its nuclear treaty obligations and Iran thumbs its nose at U.S. threats of sanctions. Venezuela, Cuba and Iran have all taken American hostages with little fear of retribution.
  38. Bailed out the auto industry and auto unions. Through the bailout, Obama rewarded the United Auto Workers union - a political ally - while wreaking havoc on 200 years of bankruptcy precedent, stiffing the bondholders, politically choosing which auto dealerships would live or die, and cheating the pension holders from the non-union Delphi workforce.
  39. Singled out companies for politicized attacks. President Obama accomplished this just as former EPA administrator Al Armendariz prescribed - by "crucifying" companies in public to make an example of them. Among the targets have been Toyota (over safety issues), BP (over the oil spill), Fox News (over its coverage) and Rush Limbaugh (over his radio commentary).
  40. Appointed unaccountable "czars." At one point, the president had 31 czars of this, that or the other thing (including green jobs, TARP, border and terrorism) all of them escaping congressional oversight. Through them, he has enacted major legal changes by regulatory order instead of through working with Congress.
  41. Done nothing about Fast and Furious gunrunning. The president continues to hide Justice Department correspondence under the guise of executive privilege on the Fast and Furious gunrunning case, which armed Mexico's cartels without Mexico's knowledge to whip up domestic support for gun control in the U.S.
  42. Politicized the Justice Department. Obama turned the Justice Department into a political creature, with Exhibit A being DOJ's failure to pursue voter intimidation recorded on film by Philadelphia's Black Panthers.
  43. Scrapped our space program. Rather than search and explore our solar system and beyond, the president turned NASA into a kind of global diversity organization. Asked what his priorities were when appointed, Obama's new head of NASA blithely answered "Muslim outreach." Meanwhile, the U.S. has few new options for sending payloads into space, while both Russia and China build and expand on their space capabilities.
  44. Not defended Americans abroad. This resulted in many casualties, not just in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya, but in the shootings of two CIA employees in Mexico in 2012, the killing of ICE agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico in 2011, the borderland killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010 and the hostage-taking of Alan Gross in Cuba in 2009. The State Department has noted a significant upsurge in imperiled Americans around the world from Venezuela to Iran.
  45. Rebooted rules that caused the subprime crisis. The president readopted the Clinton administration's regulatory guidelines for "flexible" underwriting. He has also ordered bank defendants to set aside millions in mortgages for minorities who, according to Justice Department documents, "would ordinarily not qualify for reasons including the lack of required credit quality, income or down payment."
  46. Mainstreamed the radical Muslim agenda. While the White House has rolled out the red carpet for Muslim Brotherhood leaders - despite their recently revealed goal of "destroying" America "from within" - the Justice Department has defended legal cases involving Sharia doctrine.

    Also at the request of Brotherhood leaders, it has bleached "jihad" and other Islamic references from counterterrorism training materials used by federal law enforcement. So sensitized has the government become that recent military exercises used "zombies" rather than our real living, breathing foes - radical Islamic fundamentalists - as opponents.
  47. Pushed stimulus and TARP. So much spending, so little result. Based on the Keynesian fallacy that government spending boosts the economy, the massive $862 billion stimulus bill and bailouts under TARP ended up being a goody-bag for politically connected companies and public-sector unions.

    At any rate, the idea that $1 of spending by government could somehow create more than $1 of economic activity in the private sector has been debunked. With 47 million people living in poverty and an estimated 23 million either without jobs or underemployed, the failure of Obama's stimulus to stimulate anything is clear.
Quite a list, isn't it? In fact, we had to cut some things out for space considerations. No doubt, you can think of others. Suffice to say, Obama has not done his job well - and, as we say elsewhere, it's time for a change.

The Assault on the 2nd Amendment...and No One Cares
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

July 10, 2012

The unspoken question in the 2012 campaign that everyone is afraid to ask is simply this:

Do you really want to be ruled, not governed, RULED, by the cabal of lawless, low-rent Black Liberation Theology and Nation of Islam/Black Panther leftists, the La Raza-loving Hispanic leftists, the militant feminists and the LGBT homosexual underworld currently in the White House, and their paymaster George Soros, for the next four years?

We don't really have a government anymore, just a bunch of Communist Creatures from the Socialist Black Lagoon.

In many ways our Fraudinator-in-Chief behaves like Osama bin laden. All through the 1990's Osama kept poking and prodding the liberal coward in the White House who was busy poking and prodding Monica Lewinsky with cigars. Cases in point:
  • Khobar Towers - no response.
  • The two U.S. Embassies in Africa - Clinton bombed an aspirin factory...Mr. Tough Guy.
  • The U.S.S. Cole - no response.
Is it any wonder that the Twin Towers were attacked. Osama figured he could get away with it...he had tested the moral fiber of the previous White House occupant and found it wanting. He assumed Bush was also weak.

This is exactly how Obama has been behaving.
  • He couldn't get Cap and Trade problem, have the EPA do it through regulation. No response and no outrage.
  • He put a moratorium on off-shore drilling and then defied court orders to reinstate it. No response and no outrage.
  • He refused to allow the Keystone pipeline to be built in the U.S. Gas prices are through the roof and unemployment remains stuck at 8.2% No response and no outrage.
  • Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have been covering up the gunrunning operation known as Fast and Furious through executive privilege. Holder's now in contempt of Congress. Does it make a difference? No response and no outrage.
  • All through 2011 Obama lamented how he would love to bypass Congress and institute his failed Dream Act himself, to the cheers of the Hispanic community. In April of 2011 Obama went and did it on his own granting 800,000+ illegals de-facto amnesty. Once again, no response and no outrage.
This is just the short list...the rest of the "Outrage-a-Day" scenario is well-documented on this site and elsewhere.

Under cover of the slobbering media Obama has been poking and prodding us to see just how far he can go.

Now for the coup de grace.

On July 27th, 2012 Obama and Hillary Clinton will sign the UN Smalls Arms Treaty, which is tantamount to an end run around our sovereignty and an end run around the 2nd Amendment. The stated purpose is to limit illegal arms trafficking internationally. Honestly, does anyone believe the Russians, the Chinese, the North Koreans and every piss-ant Muslim country are going to abide by this treaty, assuming they even sign it?

This is about gun registration and, ultimately, gun confiscation in this country. Nothing more nothing less.

Other than Dick Morris and the NRA no one is talking about this attack on the cornerstone of our freedom. Talk Radio is silent so far. Congress is also silent.

Soros and his White House lackeys have been working on this for years and they timed the implementation perfectly. Technically the "treaty" can be implemented between now and the Senate confirmation vote, most likely during the lame duck Congressional session after the election.

Even if the GOP sweeps in November, the Senate will still be in Democrat hands until Jan. 1, 2013. Unless the Republicans successfully filibuster this atrocity, or get enough gun-owning Democrats to agree to vote against it, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his toadies will pass it and Obama will sign it. There won't be anything the newly sworn in Romney can do about it as the treaty will have the force of law as an amendment, superseding the 2nd Amendment.

It will be Obama's final fuck you to the country if he loses. If he gets another four years who knows what he'll be able to do, unless the Congress grows a pair and finally impeaches him.

For now there seems to be no response and no outrage. So, again, the unspoken question in the 2012 campaign, that everyone is afraid to ask is simply this:

Do you really want to be ruled, not governed, RULED, by the cabal of lawless, low-rent Black Liberation Theology and Nation of Islam/Black Panther leftists, the La Raza-loving Hispanic leftists, the militant feminists and the LGBT homosexual underworld currently in the White House, and their paymaster George Soros, for the next four years?

Gay Pride Day at Obama's White House
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

June 22, 2012

In the White House! IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!

These gay mani-activist leftist scum from Philadelphia posed for pictures while giving the middle finger to portraits of former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush during a recent trip to the White House.

What a classless group of creatures....right up there with the classless group of creatures currently occupying the White House.
Matthew "Matty" Hart, left, Mark Segal, center, and Zoe Strauss, right, pose in front of portraits of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush at the White House.

Edgy, huh...Clever and sophisticated...Pushing the envelope....Shocking. Nope, just childish and superficial...exactly what you would expect from this rarified crowd. With Obama basically saying the same thing to the country with all of his edicts, why not have a portion of his base act out in the White House.

We're not really sure which is worse...these nice gay folk crapping on the American people in the White House or Obama not having the balls to denounce it. After all he needs the votes of these "people". What a great constituency he's building.....the parade of the horribles.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm sick and tired of Obama and his low-rent leftist buddies. At this rate we are going to have to fumigate and reconsecrate 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. after the Obamas leave. November can't come soon enough. It's long past time for this truly bizarre administration and the degenerate, Untermenschen freakshow that accompanies it to be shown the door.

Hey Barry, how's that gay marriage thing workin' for ya now? Still evolving? You've been apologizing for America to every leftist tin-pot dictator for three and a half years. You owe us an apology now for letting these scumbags defile the White House.

Neville update: From Fox news late Friday --

The White House on Friday rebuked two visitors who were photographed last week at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue flipping the middle finger below a portrait of the late President Ronald Reagan.

"While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Most all do," Shin Inouye, a White House spokesman, said. "These individuals clearly did not. Behavior like this doesn’t belong anywhere, least of all in the White House."

That'll teach 'em, yeah. Our Fraudinator-in-Chief couldn't even be bothered to make the statement himself. Instead he voted 'present' again. This was more like a Friday afternoon document dump than a sincere rebuke.

Obama and Holder -- Accessories to Murder?
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

June 20, 2012

Let us indulge in a little speculation here.

When the dam finally breaks on Fast & Furious....and it will break now that we are in full-throated cover-up mode....the question is what happens next.

Now that Holder is facing a House contempt vote and Obama is asserting executive privilege, look for a replay of the Watergate pattern of scandal.

Holder will eventually be made to walk the plank, John Mitchell (Nixon's Attorney General) style, to protect his boss.

Obama will continue to stonewall ala Nixon. Maybe he will say "I am not a crook!" with a pile of transcripts and tapes behind him.

Obama cronies and allies and, finally, the slobbering mainstream press (except for MSNBC's Chris Matthews and NY Times' David Brooks) will desert him.

Then the inevitable calls for impeachment and resignation will begin to sound. Which Democrat gets to do the Goldwater Walk to the White House?

The only difference is we are five months out from the general election.....probably not enough time to make some real progress if Romney wins. Nixon had already won re-election before Watergate blew up.

So does the case go away? Maybe not. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. Fast & Furious resulted in countless deaths in Mexico and the death of one U.S. border agent.

This makes Obama and Holder possible accessories to murder if they authorized Fast & Furious. That is a capital crime. In fact, the
Daily Caller speculated on this as early as October of 2011.

Will a Romney administration have the guts to continue the investigation? We already have the precedent of the Obama administration going after Bush officials for torture allegations. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Obviously fixing the economy will be priority numero uno for Romney, but capital crimes cannot be ignored.

Does Obama resign in the next few weeks and Biden pardon him, thus ceding the election to Romney? And magically, does Hillary ride in to the rescue in 2016, or perhaps, even in the fall?

And do we see Obama and Holder finally impeached, indicted and arrested?

Buckle up's starting to get real good.

Is Obama A Socialist?
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

The short answer: YES!!! Only a willfully blind fool or socialist in denial would say no. The problem is they are probably socialists as well. A fish doesn't know it's wet.

One of the very odd things in life is democrats who work overtime to elect left leaning or outright left politicians to enact all manner of wealth redistribution, social justice and enviro-fascist legislation....and then twist themselves into a pretzel to deny they are socialists, blithley calling themselves centrist and in touch with the mainstream. They are probably talking about the mainstream media, mainstream academia, and mainstream Hollywood, the only areas that actually reflect, reinforce and promote their views.

It is no wonder then, that the media aggressively works to hide who Obama is lest it all come apart for them. If the public had known in 2008 who our Fraudinator-in-Chief really was he never would have been nominated, let alone elected. Bill Clinton was right when he tagged the Obama campaign as the biggest fairy tale ever, and then got tagged with the racist label.

So is Obama a socialist? You bet. And here are the facts from Investors Business Daily to back it up:

Democrats, Media In Denial Over Obama's Socialist Beliefs
Investors Business Daily
June 7, 2012

Ideology: A lengthy feature by the Associated Press earlier this week asked the rather strange question, "Is Obama A Socialist?" A better question might be: Why doesn't the public know it?

It should come as no surprise that President Obama stands farther left on the political spectrum than any president in history.

After all, his $831 billion stimulus, TARP, auto industry takeover, crackdown on Wall Street and the banks, housing market manipulation, ObamaCare, wealth redistribution, and demonization of American business and profits are only a few examples of Obama's abiding belief in leftist principles.

What's strange is the mainstream media's continued efforts to debunk the idea that Obama is a socialist — recently going so far as to liken him to President Reagan, an absurd idea if ever there was one.

Fact is, Obama's socialist background runs deep — as IBD showed in a 21-part series that ran in 2008.

Ironically, the AP piece questioning Obama's socialism ran about a week after President Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, to "civil rights" activist Dolores Huerta. She also happens to be honorary chairwoman of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the U.S.' main socialist party and an affiliate of Socialist International.

Obama's ties to the DSA go way back. As Accuracy in Media writer Cliff Kincaid noted this week, in 1996 Obama won the endorsement of the Chicago DSA in his run for an Illinois state senate seat.

Around that time Obama eulogized Saul Mendelson, "a longtime socialist activist," as a DSA newsletter put it, and appeared on at least one DSA panel.

As has been documented, virtually all of Obama's early influences were communist or socialist. His mentor was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member. Obama's father, Barack Obama Sr., was a hard-core Marxist. Ditto his mother, Stanley Anne Dunham.

In Chicago, where Obama came of political age after attending law school, he likewise gravitated toward leftists, like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn, and the extreme left-wing and America-hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

And, of course, the future president was an acolyte of firebrand socialist/community organizer Saul Alinsky.

Not a socialist? Author Stanley Kurtz cites new evidence from Illinois Acorn records that, in his words, "definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party" in the 1990s. For the record, the New Party was a social democratic party — that is, socialist.

Of course, this is an election year, and politicians in trouble often deny the basic facts of their existence.

Yet, as recently as February 2009, Newsweek gloated on its cover, "We're All Socialists Now," a not-so-subtle recognition the just-elected president was one.

As far as we know, there were no angry denials to Newsweek by the triumphant Obama White House.

Today, fearing Obama will lose the upcoming election because of his poor stewardship of the economy, Democrats and their media allies again pooh-pooh the idea that Obama's a socialist — as they did in 2008.

Sorry, but the evidence suggests otherwise.

Obama Accesses his Inner Fabulous - Newsweek Outs the Preezy of the United Steezy.
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

May 13, 2012

Ok ok, I get it. He's one of the Village People. (rimshot!!)

In August of 2008, then VP Candidate Joe Biden said Barack Obama has "steel in his spine." I guess the only steel in Obama's spine has been the "Vaseline Missile." (rimshot!!)

The Jimmy Fallon Show ain't the only place where Obama is slow-jammin' and fudge-packin' the news. (rimshot!!)

Those are the jokes folks. We are here all week. Try the roast beef and tip the waiter.

Seriously though, the Obama administration has now officially degenerated into a very weird and waaayyyy-off soap opera peopled by a bizarre conga line of Communists, Maoists, leftist enviro-freaks, militant feminists, sycophant "journalists" and celebs and Muslim Brotherhood appointees to our most critical national security, FBI and CIA positions.

And for the second time in a week our Fraudinator-in-Chief has been outed, if you will, by one of his own. On May 6 Vice President Gaffe Biden expressed his solidarity with gay marriage. This forced Obama to finally finish "evolving" on the subject and say what everyone knew to be true, that he supports gay marriage.

And for the icing on the cake, Newsweek's Andrew Sullivan has proclaimed Obama our first gay president: "When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work. He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family."

What a load. The average American will not be thinking such lofty esoteric thoughts. They will see that idiotic magazine cover at the newsstand, and conclude that Obama is outta da closet.

What must our enemies be thinking at this point? We know Obama's Kenyan Imam cousins are not down with this. And they hang the little gay boys in Iran. And what about Nation of Islam leader and Obama buddy Louis Farrakhan and his Black Liberation Theology poodle Rev. Jeremiah Wright?

What are the Russians and the Chinese thinking?

History shows us that Russian and Chinese Communists have no problem arming up and murdering millions. It's only the weenie Western Left in Europe and the United States that present to the world a pacifist anus...with Obama as its latest corn-holer-in-chief.

France Over the Financial Cliff -- Monsieur Hollande's Socialist Opus
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

May 7, 2012

So how exactly is Obama not a socialist? After years of elitist media propaganda trying to convince us that Obama is "just like you and me", that he's not a socialist, we actually have an elected socialist that we can compare him to.

The French have taken their first step to financial ruin by electing the first avowed socialist, Francois Hollande, since the 1980's. Mon Dieu!! Sacre Bleu!!!! No Eurozone weeny austerity programs needed here. More spending....yeah, that's the ticket. Prosperity is just around the corner. Vive La France!!!

The headlines from around the world even call Hollande a socialist:
  • Socialist Francois Hollande wins French presidency
  • Germany warns France there is no easy way out after it elects anti-austerity president
  • AP: French socialist beats Sarkozy
Hollande has openly admitted that he "does not like the rich" and declared that "my real enemy is the world of finance". This means taxing the wealthy by up to 75 per cent, curtailing the activities of Paris as a center for financial dealing, and ploughing millions into creating more civil service jobs. And Obama can't wait to jump into bed with this guy...he has invited him to the White House. How is Hollande a socialist and Obama not a socialist...let's compare policies.
  • Hollande does not like rich people and capitalism.
  • Obama vilifies the wealthy and capitalism through class warfare.
  • Hollande is a wealth redistribution guy...he wants to raise taxes on the rich 75%
  • Obama is a wealth redistribution guy...he wants to do the same but fortunately all he got was the failed and phony Buffet rule and the Obamacare tax increases.
  • Hollande wants to lower the retirement age to 60, from the current 62.
  • Obama has forced many Americans into early retirement as the number of jobs disappear and folks give up looking for work.
  • Hollande is a big labor guy.
  • Obama is a big labor guy.
  • Hollande is a big spending guy.
  • Obama is the biggest spending guy.
  • Hollande wants to increase civil service hiring.
  • Obama has increased civil service hiring.
  • Hollande wants to end France's dependence on nuclear energy.
  • Obama wants to end our "dependence " on fossil fuels.
  • Hollande is pro gay marriage.
  • Obama is pro gay marriage
  • Hollande favors legalizing euthanasia on the sick and infirm. (The Nazis practiced euthanasia on the sick, infirm and the mentally disabled in government hospitals before setting up the more efficient death camps)
  • Obama has established a kind of national euthanasia with the Obamacare Independent Payment Advisory Board, a 15 member unelected death panel, which will make decisions on who receives care and who doesn't.
Meanwhile wealthy Frenchmen are planning their escape to England and possibly America and Singapore.

If Obama were white, this crackpot wouldn't be anywhere near the White House. He would be a backbencher like socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. But because Obama is black, the collective white guilt of the latte sipping, wine swilling Upper West Side Liberals in the media told us we just had to have this guy to wash away our sins.

The media has therefore, actively participated in a cover up of the truth about who Obama is. Obama was not vetted in 2008 by anyone except a few intrepid souls.

Over the last four years more and more has come out about our Fraudinator-in-Chief. It seems there are no one but communists and Muslims in Obama's past, from his father and mother, to mentor Frank Marshal Davis, Bill Ayres, Van Jones, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Anita Dunn, Rashid Khalidi, Valerie Jarret….the list goes on and on. Most recently Al Amerdariz, the top EPA official for Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, was fired for referring to Roman crucifixions, in his efforts to stop oil production. Green Jobs czar and avowed communist Van Jones was fired for for his truther remarks regarding 9-11. Communications director Anita Dunn had to leave because she said her fav philosopher was Mao.

These associations don't happen by accident. Obama actively seeks out these people in his life and his administration. But the press wants you to believe he's Harry Truman.

Honestly, how many leftist nutbags like these people do you know? Obama is either the unluckiest, or the dumbest guy in the world regarding the people he hangs out with, or he is, at best, a socialist and, at worst, a Communist/Marxist/Maoist.

Let's hope Hollande and Obama don't hang around as long as music teacher Mr. Holland did in the film Mr. Holland's Opus, laboring 20 years to compose a mere 10 minutes worth of bad orchestral rock music, implying it's his Magnum Opus and somehow likening it to Beethoven.

Democrat Party[Time] -- On Your Dime
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

April 22, 2012

It's almost like Berlin, 1945. In the waning days of World War II, with the Russians at the gates of Berlin and American and British bombers conducting around the clock bombing of the Nazi capital, the citizens of Berlin partied like it was the end of the world. For many of them it was.

In what is, hopefully, the waning days of the most corrupt administration in U.S. history, government officals are partying like it's the end of their world. Come November 2012 let's make it a reality.

The GSA Scandal

The Government Services Administration Inspector General reported that GSA Executives recently partied in Las Vegas on your dime, springing for a lavish $823,000 Las Vegas conference in 2010 that resembled a Roman orgy of endlessly flowing, taxpayer-paid booze, sumptuous meals and a conga line of court jesters that included a clown, a mind reader and comedian. Christians being thrown to the lions, gladiators? NO HOOKERS?!?

A number of GSA officials have been fired and have taken the fifth during congressional hearings.

In addition to the Vegas rave-up, GSA commisioner Jeffrey Neely took five trips totaling 44 days including a 17-day trip to Hawaii, Guam and Saipan that he and his wife planned as a birthday celebration, according to emails between the two. Neely has been fired. No champagne for you!!!

Neely's supervisor, Robert Peck, was fired April 2 after the inspector general's report on GSA abuse came out. In addition, GSA Administrator Martha Johnson has been fired. Ten employees have been placed on administrative leave. No more champagne for them either.

Neely in a hot tub in Vegas......and Neely taking the fifth.

Didn't Obama, in 2009, say vacations to Vegas would not be tolerated? Oh wait, he was referring to corporate trips, not government junkets.

Hookers and the Secret Service

By now everyone's heard about our wayward Secret Servcie agents partying in Cartagena, Columbia, with some hookers. A number of them have been fired. And the Democrats are trying to look tough on this by calling for heads to roll.

Sen. Joltin' Joe Lieberman on Face the Nation: "It just gets more troubling," Lieberman told host Bob Schieffer. "To act as these people did in Cartagena as if they were college kids on spring break, it is reprehensible,"

Also on "Face the Nation," Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who sits on the House Homeland Security Committee, said the Secret Service leadership must act harshly.

"The cancer must be carved out," Jackson Lee said. "Frankly, I think there should be no tolerance, zero tolerance."

Wow, that'll teach 'em. Such oratorial brio!! Watch for congressional hearings on this scandal as well.

Meanwhile here's our venerable Sec. of State Hillary Clinton partying in Cartagena the night before our Fraudinator-in-Chief's trip down to the Columbian capital:

Hillary raises her arms like she just don't care.

So, in the time just before the 2012 election we have the administration partying like it's April 1945. Maybe the rot has finally set in and nobody gives a shit anymore. Maybe the attitude is rape and pillage until we get booted out. Hopefully Obama's internal polling is telling them things that the mainstream media "Soviet-style crop report" polls and news isn't telling us.
  • The GSA scandal
  • HookerGate -- the Secret Service scandal
  • Obama with his hand on Russian President Medvedev's knee sending a love note to Putin about more flexibility after the election
  • the price of gas
  • 8.2% unemployment

  • Obamacare and the attack on Catholics and religion in general
  • Phony wars on contraception and women
  • Endless class warfare
  • The $1 trillion student loan scandal
  • Dodd-Frank and the Fannie mae/Freddie mac mess
  • Solyndra and the green jobs scam
  • The Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal
  • The Keystone XL pipeline
  • The gutting of Nasa and our armed forces
  • The Israel sellout
  • The Eastern European missile sellout
  • The downed drone in Iran...
  • drip, drip, drip.........tick tock, tick tock, tick tock.
"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphant processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum, of the new, wonderful, good society, which shall now be Rome's, interpreted, to mean more money, more ease, more security, living fatly at the expense of the industrious."

Obama Sells Out U.S. National Security.......Again
By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards

March 28, 2012

Our Fraudinator-In-Chief seems to have a lot of microphone malfunctions. It started with his remarks to a liberal group about "bitter folks who cling to their guns and religion" duting the 2008 campaign.

Then there was the open-mic remark to French President Sarkozy about Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu:

Sarkozy: 'Netanyahu, I can't stand him. He's a liar...'

Obama: 'You're sick of him, but I have to deal with him every day...'

Just the other day Obama was cought on a hot mic cuddling up to Russian President Medvedev:

Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it's important for him to give me space.

Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you...

Obama: (reaching over and putting his hand on Mr. Medvedev's knee): This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

This was Obama in league with an anti-American autocrat to dupe the American public until after it's too late. What makes it even worse is that the issue at hand--missile defense--has to do with protecting the American people against a low-rent toilet like Russia.

Early on in the Obama regime, one of his first acts was to begin the sellout of our Eastern European allies regarding the missle defense shield.

Now he seems intent on finishing the sellout and laying the United States bare when it comes to our own nuclear stockpiles.

Obama offered an extended explanation of the hot mic incident:

"The only way I get this stuff done is If I'm consulting with the Pentagon, with Congress, if I've got bipartisan support and frankly, the current environment is not conducive to those kinds of thoughtful consultations. I think the stories you guys have been writing over the last 24 hours is pretty good evidence of that."

Pardon us, Barack, for reporting about your little side deals with the Russians.

Obama offered up more damage control saying his comments, though not intended for public consumption, were "not a matter of hiding the ball -- I'm on record" about wanting to reduce nuclear weapons stockpiles.

From Investor's Business Daily:

President Obama has tried to explain away his open-mic gaffe when he told Medvedev that he would have more "flexibility" on missile defense after our November election.

He told reporters at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul that he was merely talking about the difficulty of dealing with sensitive issues in a politically charged election year for both countries.

"This is not a matter of hiding the ball," Obama said. Oh, but it is — and his own words as a candidate in 2008 expose that lie and the fact that the president is indeed fulfilling campaign promises to unilaterally disarm the U.S. and pursue a world without nuclear weapons, particularly the American variety.

Obama's defense budgets and policies are the fulfillment of a campaign promise made to the far-left group, Caucus for Priorities, a month before the January 2008 Iowa caucuses. Caucus for Priorities is an offshoot of a bigger group, the Priorities Action Fund, created by Ben Cohen, the peace activist and co-founder of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

In a video made for the group, Obama called for a further deterioration in our military strength. "I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems," he pledged. "I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems." So far, he has kept his word.

Obama is hiding the ball and has masked his disarmament and appeasement in the context of budget necessities, not ideological commitment.

What has he promised the Chinese, with whom he also met in Seoul? Or the Iranians? Will Israel be thrown under the Iranian bus after November? Obama has already betrayed NATO allies Poland and the Czech Republic on missile defense.

The speculation about who's really running Obama, be it Soros, the Saudis or the Russians, or some combination of the various groups of anti-American entities, has been non-stop for four years. At this point it doesn't really matter. Barack Obama is an enemy of the state. The mask has come off revealing a hardcore Marxist. What is important is that this traitor, his czars and his regulators are shown the door in November.
