HAS THE MEDIA AWAKENED?

WOW!

My friend Bob McGraw sent me this article today and what a shock. I have wondered, like a lot of Americans, if our national media would ever wake up and report the news like they have before Obama was elected President. I understand why Democrats elected this unknown, untested, Muslim educated and mentored master of reading propaganda from a teleprompter. He can certainly mesmerize the weak, female, minority voters and the poor with his Socialists promises. How he has hoodwinked the media will someday be recorded by the historians as the biggest con event the world ever witnessed. Please share this with as many cognizant voters that you know before the November elections.  C Brewer

By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz  addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)

And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

TWO AMERICAS

Bob Lonsberry, a Rochester talk radio personality on WHAM 1180 AM, said this in response to Obama’s “income inequality speech”:

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t.

The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have not’s, it’s the dos and the don’ts.

Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t.   That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility.

It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office.

It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.   That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.”   He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.

That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.   It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America.

It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.

The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful – seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices.

Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences.   Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.   Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income.

You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education.

You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course;  you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course.

Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do.  There is significant income inequality between us.  Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an in equality of effort.   While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant.

He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes.   His outcome pays a lot better than mine.

Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth?   No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom.  The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. 

There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure.

The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy.

Even if the other guy sat on his butt and did nothing.   Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions.

Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort.

The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”  Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.

Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way.   He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity.

He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.   America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.   It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism.   He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit.  That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow.

Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

I RECEIVED THIS FROM A FRIEND, ALLAN MOORE, AND DID NOT CHANGE A WORD. THE SAD PART IS THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TRIED TO DO FOR 100 YEARS. THIS TIME THEY HAVE DIVIDED US. C BREWER

INTELLIGENCE

On my way driving home today  about 2pm I was listening to our Secretary of State testifying before a Senate committee about our duty to stop President Assad of Syria from ignoring International Laws. I will be the first to admit that my patience with insanity and supposedly intelligent people who attempt to use unmitigated bullshit before a Congressional Committee is an idiot in political clothing. Our government and Congress have reached the lowest level of hypocrisy in my 83 years as a native Texan.

As I have been using several different terms to try to see if anyone besides myself is fed up with the government screwing up everything to maintain or regain political power over a majority of American citizens, illegal aliens, felons and dead democrats. Are we all as dumb as the government believes we are?

I choose the subject, Intelligence, as I have questioned my own as I observe a President and his Cabinet of thieves and czars being able to thumb their nose at any conservative alive for trying to sound an alarm. Again I have used Wikipedia to be consistent with definitions to address specific terms.

INTELLIGENCE

“Intelligence has been defined in many different ways including logic, abstract thought, understanding, self-awareness, communication, learning, having emotional knowledge, retaining, planning, and problem solving.

Intelligence is most widely studied in humans, but has also been observed in animals and in plants. Artificial intelligence is the simulation of intelligence in machines.

Within the discipline of psychology, various approaches to human intelligence have been adopted. The psychometric approach is especially familiar to the general public, as well as being the most researched and by far the most widely used in practical settings.”

Let me share; I have a Master’s Degree in Management. I am a retired member of Mensa and Intertel. I am a retired Registered Professional Engineer. I had 43 years of executive management success. For some five years I chaired national committees on The Minerals Management Service branch of the US Department of the Interior regulations for Offshore Oil and Gas Safety Equipment. I wrote a Quality Standard for the American Petroleum Institute. You are invited to read some 635 articles I have posted on this blog. Do I sound like I have at least some intelligence?

If so help me understand how a President of the United States, who has no Courage as I have written, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for our military have the gonads to ask Congress to be ashamed if we do not punish Syria because they ignore the law.

The President, Vice-President, our Attorney General, the Supreme Court, our Federal Judges and Governors in most democratic states ignore our laws every day. They even prevent honest law enforcement officers at state and local level from enforcing the laws of the United States.

Why in God’s name have we become the sole source of law enforcement world-wide when we ignore our own laws? I am not condoning mistreatment of anyone. We have ignored slavery in Africa for centuries, is that not similar to just killing your own people. In my mind it is more humane to kill innocent people rather than force them into slavery. At least it would be for me.

All of our elected officials in America today fear is not being re-elected. They have lost sight of their responsibility to serve the public and have no compassion for anyone but themselves. Every decision is politically connected to retaining the regal status they have bestowed on themselves to be a higher class citizen than you or I. If not why can’t they accept their biggest screw-up in history and exempting themselves from Obamacare?

Our colleges and universities still provide some important Intelligence. Unfortunately the education and the Socialist and Marxist indoctrination the kids receive from the Liberal-Progressive professors and the free enterprise system that made America the greatest nation in history will not compute. We no longer teach people the values of freedom and self-actualization I was educated about.

Maybe I am stupid as I can’t understand how 53 million Americans, dead and alive, re-elected our President who lacks the Courage to perform his duty if he is so self-righteous and concerned about the Syrian situation. I bet the slaves in Africa would love to see cruise missiles eliminate their owners, or put them out of their misery. But who cares?

I would love to see Sheriff Joe elected President and enforce our own laws, then tackle the Syrian situation.

How do you feel?
