Carter Rescues One Hostage But Left 52 Behind

As usual, I have been pondering the idiocy of the left, since they leave me so much fodder for material. Today I am focusing on the lunacy of the left hailing kudos to Carter.

Up until Obama was elected, I had regarded Carter as one of the worst presidents in the history of the nation. Nothing to date can possibly overshadow the atrocities that Obama has committed so far against the nation, but Carter should not necessarily be lost in the shadows.

Along with a 70% income tax, 17% borrowing rate, odd-even days for gasoline due to gasoline shortages, a huge recession, and almost 13% unemployment, Carter can claim another important failure as president, namely the Iranian hostage crisis.

Carter was such a big loser with his weakness and appeasement to our enemies policies, that he failed to rescue 52 Americans held hostage by Iran for a whopping 444 days. Has the left forgotten this? Or is the failed education system so pathetic that young people do not know our history from just a few decades ago?

If it wasn't for the strength of Reagan, a real president with backbone, patriotism, and pride in our nation, the Iranians would not have released those hostages just minutes after Reagan was sworn in as president. They knew Reagan was not weak and meant business.

The history and the message is clear as day. We are safer when our enemies fear us. We are weaker when our president appeases our enemies. Carter was weak and Obama is now following in his footsteps.

Except yesterday, Carter is hailed as a big hero and negotiator for getting one hostage out of North Korea. ONE? ONE? To me this does not erase his record for the 52 hostages held for 444 days in Iran. Carter can never redeem himself for his actions.

And the worst part is, when he presumably went there to do Obama's bidding, what promises were made to our enemies? What additional weaknesses will there be in our national security as a result?

Appeasing dictators is not a strategy for improving our national security. But the weak never learn that lesson, and the rest of us will be stuck suffering for it.

Obama Declares Habeas Corpus by Location?

Perhaps Obama took the Hippocratic oath since his administration is filled with such hypocrisy. Of course, I am sure if we asked him, it would be all Bush's fault. Or maybe TOTUS is putting words in his mouth. Either way, he is a hypocrite from every angle.

First he wants to grant foreign terrorists constitutional rights, and now he is playing semantics with the rights of foreign terrorists on foreign lands.

Obama declares that it depends on where the prisoners are held? Really?
"So congratulations to the United States and Barack Obama for winning the power to abduct people anywhere in the world and then imprison them for as long as they want with no judicial review of any kind."

I think I am just going to let this article speak for itself,

Brazil, Ally of Iran?

Iran is moving full speed ahead on it's path for world destruction. Sadly, dictators are able to find no shortage of friends around the globe. I guess the common goal of destroying the world binds them together.

Surprisingly, even some of these friends have their limits. Russia refused to deliver the weapons, but Iran managed to obtain them anyway.

Who could be the unspecified source? North Korea? Venezuela? Cuba?

Or could it be Brazil?

Soros Wants World Govt Run Media

Ah, the Marxists and their antics. They will never be able to take control if there is freedom of thought, an exchange of ideas, and real news being reported. So it is no surprise that Soros, Ayers, Dohrn, and all the other Marxists who are Obama's associates have sought to ignore the concept of freedom of the press and replace it with propaganda.

While the propaganda may have succeeded in brainwashing some of the people and getting Obama elected, with the recently disclosed journo-lists, the cat is out of the bag.

The media hit and run they did upon Palin is disgraceful. For an in-depth tale of this, watch the film "Media Malpractice".

They don't deserve to call themselves journalists. It was only so long before the con game was discovered. Eventually, the truth will prevail. Hopefully, that time is now, before the next election.

Fingerprinting 4 year olds

It is no secret to those of us who are paying attention that the web of statists expands through out the globe like a fungus. After all, their goal of a new world order cannot be achieved without statists everywhere causing the world to rot from the inside. And since they cannot easily brainwash all the adults, they focus on the erosion of liberty through the vulnerability of children who don't know their rights yet.

In this regard, I came across a couple of articles that I found to be disturbing to say the least.

This one justifies fingerprinting four year olds in order to borrow a library book or to pay for a school meal.

They allege that the information is not stored. If this is the case, how would they know who has to return the book? Or to whom to charge the meal? Clearly, it must be stored and the claim that it isn't stored is a lie.

Furthermore, why is this even necessary? People have had library cards for decades. Parents have been paying for school meals for decades with cash or checks. Why is this no longer sufficient?

This starts with library books and meals, but as with everything else, the statists won't stop there. This will at some point progress throughout all facets of their lives, until such time as one needs to be fingerprinted in order to process any transaction no matter how tiny. The statist will have full control of everyone and their lives are no longer their own.

While this may be occurring in the UK and you may think it couldn't happen in America, think again. The statists are subtlety taking baby steps, proceeding inconspicuously to achieve their goal of a new world order.

Two years ago, a school in Rhode Island began microchipping students' schoolbags, and they did it without any one's permission.
"Because the pilot program is being provided to the school district at no cost, it did not require approval from the Rhode Island ethics commission."

The "at no cost" claim is also a lie. Nothing is free. Someone is paying for it. Regardless of whether it is indirectly the taxpayers via taxes, or investors, or the statists, this doesn't make it acceptable.

Since when is the right to liberty able to be infringed upon by using a justification that it is "no cost"? Where is that in the Constitution?

Communist nations may provide "free" services to their enslaved citizens but that does not make them more free. Rather it leaves them without any liberty at all. No liberty is the ultimate goal of the statists. Beware of those bearing "free" gifts, as it really isn't free at all, and the cost to you will be high.

Tax Hokey Pokey

The beauty of tv and videos everywhere is the ability to play it back later. Throughout Obama's campaign, he stated over and over that there would be no new taxes on 95% of Americans.

When he pushed through his Obamacare agenda, the mandated fines were denied as being a tax. Now that the bill is being challenged in courts, the administration now declares the bill to be Constitutional based upon the ability to tax via the 16th amendment.

In addition, the current debate on allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire, will in effect be an increase in taxes on all Americans.

Obama is playing the hokey pokey with taxes and shaking it all about to try to create a distraction. But at the rate that he is spending, we are doomed for new excessive taxes.

Those old Obama campaign videos of no new taxes should be very useful for his opponent in the next campaign. I can't wait to see Obama try to talk his way out of this one.

Socialized Medicine Leaves Babies in the Waiting Room

A woman giving birth should be a special time. Although she needs extra medical attention, it should not be wrought with a denial of care. But with socialized medicine, this is exactly what happens. The government is in charge of care and decides who gets what and when, and how much.

The denial of care is inevitable in nations with socialized medicine. Some of the population is expected to foot the bill for the rest. The rationing is therefore symptomatic of a socialized system as a result of monetary limitations.

So now that Obamacare has been inflicted upon us, the end result of such systems elsewhere are an indication of what will happen here. This will impact all care, including childbirth.

These two examples of childbirth in socialized nations will make your hair stand on edge.

This woman had a miscarriage in the waiting room, after waiting 12-14 hours while bleeding.

This woman was forced to give birth on a hospital floor.

Now that Missouri has rejected the Obamacare mandate, I can only hope that the rest of the states follow in their footsteps and toss this bill into the shredder. Otherwise, our mothers to be are in for the same treatment or lack thereof as socialized nations.

Socialized Medicine Kills Off Patients

Obama and the other statists are continually trying to make us more like Europe. So much so, that they forced their socialized medicine down America's throat by passing Obamacare, despite the enormous public objection to it.

Of course, they did what they wanted. Because in socialized nations, one does not have any liberties. This would include the right to life, which might explain why Obama kept hailing that maybe one should take the "red pill".

The leftists ignored the will of the people. The leftists ignored the predictions that this would lead to more costs, less freedom, and rationed healthcare. The leftists twisted the CBO assessments to create false savings. The leftists ignored the GOP who was crying foul with the death clause which leftists claimed wasn't in the bill when it was.

When we look at socialized nations, there are countless stories of rationed care and higher costs. Now these same nations, to which Obama and the statists aspire to fundamentally transform the USA to be one of them, openly admits that they are willing to kill off patients.

This is where we are headed. The statists have ignored your right to life. It is time to restore our rights and liberties. The statists have to go. A good start would be November's election.

Show Me the Money

I have been mulling over the fact that Obama loves to talk about the great depression as if it were a thing of the past and he is the nation's savior from another depression. Some economists recently have actually compared Obama's self-induced disastrous economy with that of the 1930s.

If we don't learn from history, we are destined to repeat it. Keynesian economics is flawed. FDR proved that, but that doesn't seem to stop Obama from insisting on following in his footsteps and repeating his mistakes, only tenfold.

The stimulus spending was not only borrowed money, but it was spent on things that will not generate any income. So now we are stuck with the debt, interest on the debt of about $100 million a day, and an economy that is no where near a recovery.

Trillions and Trillions and Trillions, Oh MY!

As a follow up to yesterday's blog post, I thought I would add this little tidbit. Not only has Obama more than tripled the deficit in 18 months of being in office, but it does not include the impact of Obamacare on the deficit.

The CBO declared that Obamacare would add $1 trillion to the deficit in 10 years.

With the deficit nearing $2 trillion now, and Obamacare will add another trillion, the nation will be inflicted with an unprecedented debt exceeding that of the great depression.

Obama loves the words "unprecedented" and "the great depression", but this is taking things too far. Now that Obama has achieved an unprecedented presidency, he will be responsible for the next depression. He wanted to make history, and he has, but not in a good way.

Obama Eats His Way Through the Buffet

The spending of Obama and Congress now resembles the obese restaurant patron that devours everything at the all you can eat buffet but leaves the parsley. After gorging themselves, they try to fool you into thinking they didn't overdo it and actually exercised some restraint. After spending 2 trillion, they plan to leave the parsley and think we will be swayed by it.

Today is the day that Obama left the parsley, namely he has ordered bonuses to be frozen for political appointees and requested Congress to freeze appointees' salaries as well.
"President Barack Obama on Tuesday ordered bonuses be frozen for political appointees in the federal government, as the White House sought to show it was being careful with taxpayer dollars before the Nov. 2 congressional elections."

"Polls show public support for Obama has slipped because of deep concern about the economy and high unemployment. His Democratic Party faces heavy losses in the elections and Republicans blame him for spending that they say will push the U.S. budget deficit to a record $1.47 trillion this year."

So now Obama wants to be careful? This is all about self-interest and self-preservation. This is nothing more than a political ploy to make it appear as if Obama is being fiscally responsible. It is an insult to the intelligence of all Americans if he thinks we the people will fall for his ruse.

Truthfully, after Obama has thrusted his economic gluttony of spending upon the nation and rewarded the sloths with redistributing the wealth, the nation is now stuck with a bloated deficit of almost 2 trillion.

If we look at this chart, one can observe that Bush left office with a deficit of less than 500 billion. Obama has managed to more than triple the deficit in just 18 months of being in office. Yet, Obama constantly spews lies and deceit on his blame Bush campaign, despite the truth of the facts and evidence being to the contrary.

Obama is responsible for the enormous deficit now, and will remain responsible for it for at least the next decade. Although Congress is responsible for the budget, the blame for the deficit could really be shared equally between the leftists and Obama, since they share the same agenda. This is important to remember, because keeping any of them will cause further damage to the economy. Collectively, they must be viewed as a group.

And now that they know their re-election hangs on a thread, we get one little act of feigned responsibility to portray as if they are going to curtail spending. What a joke. The only ones they are fooling are themselves. America watched these ravenous porkers with insatiable appetites for spending wash America down the drain and clog our economy with exorbitant deficits. If we are ever going to have an economic recovery, we need to purge ourselves of the gluttons as soon as possible, and November is the perfect time for us to break out the Drano.

It seems that the Food Modernization Act outlawing organic food but mandating chemically induced foods and sterile seeds wasn't going far enough for the leftists. Now they are moving on to farm animals and fish. If the statists have their way, there will be nothing left in our food supply that is natural and you will have no say in the matter.

This doesn't come as a surprise, since interfering with agriculture is Karl Marx's Ninth Plank.

The FDA has already argued in a legal case that:
"individuals have no 'fundamental right' to obtain what food they choose. The FDA essentially believes that nobody has the right to choose what to eat or drink. You are only 'allowed' to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to. There is no inherent right or God-given right to consume any foods from nature without the FDA's consent."

The government wants control over your food and will do anything to get it.

The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009,is another government takeover of our food and food supply. The bill addresses such items as genetically engineered food, animals, seeds, etc.

Apparently, the "abby-something" from the film "Young Frankenstein" is becoming a reality. We will now have abby-normal-salmon. Yes, now you will be able to consume a lab created salmon, that is infertile, and allegedly tastes just like real salmon, except it doesn't have to be labeled as such. You will have no idea that you are getting all your fake vitamins and fake minerals from your fake food. So unless you catch it yourself, you will have no idea what you are eating.

Of course, those who have invested in the abby-normal-salmon claim there is no health risk to the consumer whatsoever. Really? Of course those who spent money to create fake salmon are going to tell you that. Common sense, however, tells you that they cannot guarantee there is no health risk from eating fish induced with growth hormones that grows faster in half the time as a normal salmon. I don't think it is wise for us to be modifying the genes of any species. And if God wanted us to create our own species, He would have given us the ability to do so.

There is also no guarantee that these abby-normal-salmon won't escape into the wild and render real salmon extinct in 40 generations. That is a great angle on protecting the natural earth with all it's bounty. The envirofascists think they can protect the earth by feeding the world with sterile food grown in a lab. What they will really accomplish is destruction of the earth and all it's natural ecosystems.

Ironically, the envirofascists spend all their time preaching their fabricated global warming crisis to the world. The ridiculous allegations that humans are damaging the earth by exhaling carbon dioxide completely ignores that we are part of the ecosystem and that our CO2 provides food for plants. So of course once they get everyone to stop breathing so much, there will be no plants left, which is why they need to create fake ones in a lab.

These same envirofascists are now in the science lab cooking up an "enviropig" that produces less gas.
"Scientists elsewhere are working on cattle that would be resistant to mad cow disease, and researchers in Canada have developed an "enviropig" that would produce manure with less harmful levels of phosphorus."

For generations, farmers have used manure for fertilizer for crops, putting what is natural back into the earth. Like breathing, suddenly anything that is natural is harmful to the earth and must be stopped. But don't worry. With the right combination of chemicals, these science experiments might even taste like real food. If not, you can always sprinkle it with some fake salt.
