“Bipartisan” Obama won’t even EAT with Republicans


The emperor with no food.

Meeting with GOP senators, at a lunch no less, the POTUS couldn’t stomach it.

He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do.

No doubt, and nice own goal there, Barrack.

But dude; the food.

Eat it!

Think of your starving relatives in Kenya.

No taster?

So what?

Bring a taster.

Or was that sequestered, too?

Starve, thin man.

Did he bring a taster to that DC burger joint that time?

Closing off the White House to school kids? Wants all that bipartisan nonsense with the Republicans, yet won’t even EAT with them??? The master politician has become a master of the faux pas.

Is his teleprompter secretly a T1000?

Was closing the White House to tours really a good idea, and will it solve America’s debt woes?


No.

The kindest language that I can use is that it makes Obama look petty.

Dem threads


Enjoyed watching the POTUS inauguration the other night.

‘Twas interesting to see the CNN commentators tripping over themselves to see who could wax most lyrical.

And when it came to their adulations over the first lady’s garb, well, it reminded me of a certain story.

Perhaps I’m the only person on the planet who thinks this when an adoring media goes on and on (and on and on) about Michelle Obama’s clothes* …

… but I doubt it. :-)

*Or maybe it was their commentary in general …

Friday Night Party Music


Yes, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Not that I haven’t been keeping up, but have been pretty busy in the new line of work (freelance ESL) – loving it – and, well, have been trying to get the stress levels down a bit.

Tim Blair may be a funny blogger, Andrew Bolt may be a serious blogger, but lately, whenever I’ve really gotten stuck into it, I just start getting angry.

I’m not convinced that is a good thing.

Nevertheless, as I said, I’ve been keeping an eye on things, mainly via the excellent Michael Smith and Larry Pickering (whose Facebook site seems to be having a better time of things today).

That national debt hit 250 bil today – nice one Julia and Wayne. That’s a bit over 11 grand of government debt every man, woman, and child now has to pay off on top of whatever personal debt one may have.

Julia’s off strutting her stuff at the UN General Assembly. Bit rough when one wakes up, turns on Australia Network, and she’s talking. If you’ll allow one to dream unrealistically for a tic, if we lose our bid for a seat on the (joke of a) UN Security Council, does that mean we’d have a good excuse to stop paying our dues? Whatever grand idea the UN might once have been, it is an inept shadow of it’s former self, packed to the rafters with corruptocrats.

Why do we have to put up with the likes of Iran’s Ahmadinejad ranting away up there? I’m not convinced his idea of “peace” is the same as our idea of peace.

Nevertheless, Netanyahu did an exceptional job, so maybe there’s some value left there.

But I digress. As an Aussie, my focus should be on Gillard’s performance. Go to Michael Smith, have a look around, and you see that it is in fact some international MSM picking up the story of the AWU/Slater&Gordon scandal!

If it were to happen, what a venue for that to blow up in the PM’s face. That said, it might not “blow up” but it might be enough to tilt the balance in Finland or Luxembourg’s favour. That might not be such a bad thing, lol. However, it’s a little embarrassing that international media will cover something that, generally speaking, Australian MSM won’t.

There’s lot’s there at both Larry’s and Michael’s sites; Ashby’s 50K payout, the debt, boat people, Nauru, AWU, Paul Howes… you name it, but I reckon I’ve gone into all that stuff enough for a Friday evening, indeed a Friday evening that is the beginning of a little mini-break over here in Korea.

Chusok. And actually, personally, I’m taking about nine days off, so again, forgive me if I don’t immerse myself in grubby politics during that time.

Besides: China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan; things are heating up just a tad too much over various disputed islands. One lot is between Japan, China, and Taiwan which you may have heard about. The other lot is between Japan and Korea. Apparently these islands/islets are of intense historical importance, so I guess the massive reserves of natural gas having noting to do with it (It’s Friday – no links). Man, China seems really stoked on getting that aircraft carrier (thanks, Russia!) – with another homemade one on the way. Hu Jintao had the Mao suit on and everything! And, well, I guess Korea’s pretty happy upon receiving 3 bil worth of Apache helicopters.

Fun times.

And yes, well noted is that the Persian Gulf is a fun place to be also these days (there is a way perhaps that we could be less dependent and without having to throw billions more taxpayer dollars at bankrupt solar experiments).

Oh, and there’s some kind of US election or something going on? All I say about that is that 4Corners was a bit deceptive when they promoted a doco about Mitt Romney but it turned out to be little more that 45 minutes of why Mormons are so bad with the occasional reminder that Mitt is a Mormon. It was actually a rerun of a BBC doco, but whatevs, and was aired months earlier in Australia but it was on Australia Network this week. The reporter, John Sweeney, has done two anti-Mitt/anti-Mormon docos that I know of (no – not linking).
Meh. Enough.

In much more pleasing news at this moment in time, Deadmau5 released >album title goes here< on Wednesday.

:-)

PS Most western op.eds telling you what “Gangnam Style” is all about are rubbish. But here and here are two good ones.

Sensitive thugs


Sensitive lot, aren’t they, over in northern Africa and the Middle East?

Turn on, say, CNN, and we’re witnessed to violent, inflamed protests in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, the Kashmir region, Yemen, Morocco, and Israel and the Palestinian territories.

And why? Well the catalyst for the protests which – no coincidence, surely – began on September 11, are over a crappy, low budget film depicting Mohammed as a thug and pedophile. Most of us would have happily lived out our lives having not the slightest inkling this film ever existed, except that an Egyptian sheik got wind of it, translated the YouTube trailer in to Arabic and, let’s face it, used it to light a fire under the ever-simmering hatred of the West, and the US in particular as the bastion of the West.

The film was ordinary to say the least, but that’s the price you pay for freedom, and in particular, freedom of speech – a cornerstone of free democratic nations (which incidentally, the Left in Australia has managed to dig up). I’d much rather have freedom and be offended once in a while than to live in a country where even freedom of thought is blasphemy, indeed punishable by death.

What we also know – or think we know – is that the bloke who made the film is one Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, FKA Sam Becile; technically a Coptic Christian (they make up around 10% of Egypt’s population), but as information comes to light, it turns out he’s a pretty shady guy with multiple names and social security numbers, has been convicted for narcotics offenses as well as bank fraud.

So basically, he’s a troll – not someone to be liked.

However, what I also don’t like is all the finger-pointing that has gone on “back home”. TBH, I’m not really that proud of my “Bye, Libya” post below (although a number of US lawmakers, both Democrat and Republicans, have called for a washing of hands also). But what really disgusts me is that whilst corpses have been paraded around the streets, and the senseless violence is ongoing, the Left have used this as an opportunity to attack US presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

Now, for sure, the Right have also used this to attack sitting Democrat President Barrack Obama.

Yet, there is one key difference, it must be pointed out, that does not make what’s good for the goose good for the gander.

Romney has no actual political power, and in no way has been involved in any type of US government decision making when it comes to things such as an effective, appropriate response, coordination with the State Department, and security conditions on the ground which may have at least saved a few important lives.

The opposite is true for Obama. Geneva convention or not (the host country provides most security at embassies and consulates), the situation being what it was leading up to those abhorrent attacks, the Obama administration should have had proper security forces in place.

It did not.

And talk about gaffes in rhetoric – and the Left has been quick to jump on a perceived yet actually non-existent gaffe in Romney’s rhetoric – Obama comes out and says Egypt is neither enemy nor ally; a gaffe which the State Department had to correct and reiterate that Egypt, er, technically is an ally, in the legal definition of the word.

Not that Obama is being punished in the media for that massive faux pas

Double standards? Remember when Obama recently and most irresponsibly inflamed home grown violence by declaring that if he had a son, his name would be Trayvon Martin?

Still, that’s hardly the first example of collective, selective, faux leftist outrage.

But I digress, and fall into the same trap I’m blaming leftists for also doing.

The real bad guy here isn’t Obama. Nor is it Romney. Nor is it that film maker, not in a country that upholds freedom of speech, however offensive.

No, the real bad guys are those thugs who murdered the US Libyan ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens and three others including two former Navy Seals.

The real bad guys are those thugs staging their violent protests all over the middle east and northern Africa.

The real bad guys are people like that sheik who found that obscure video and used it to incite an entire nation, indeed regions, to hatred and violence.

The real bad guys are the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who have called for a banning of Freedom of Speech in the West, and who have also called for *cough* peaceful protests this Friday, Islamic prayer day.

While emotions are still running high, can we in the West, on the Left and the Right, please remember who the real bad guys are (hint: it’s not each other).

Goodbye, Libya


Not a chance, Libya, so long as I live. Never will I look on your people, nor country in any way favourably.

To do that, to the American ambassador. Never forget. Never forgive. And I’m quite aware of the date.

All over a movie?

I am done with trying to understand these “people”.

UPDATE

Yeah, well…

More

That said…

Source

And the embassy had no Marine protection. What kind of a president would allow that to happen?

UPDATE

It’s funny coz it’s true…

UPDATE

The writing had been on the wall for months – around a year and a half – and yet Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State for the Obama administration expresses surprise.

Pathetic.

And again, the question begs: why didn’t that Embassy have Marine protection??? This is as much an indictment on the Obama administration as it is on Islamic terrorism (19,592 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 and counting JFTR…)

UPDATE

Have a squiz around the internet and we know that shitty video was made by some anonymous charlatan. We know the violence didn’t happen until after it was found, translated, and “promoted” by some Egyptian sheik. We know abhorrent violence has been ignited in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and Iran.

So what can we deduce from this?

Simple. Those guys over there really hate our guts. Essentially, the Islamic world hates the West.

How can any form of appeasement or compromise possibly work when all it takes is a crap video, and our guys get their corpses paraded around the streets?

Obamacare explained… in a sentence


Brilliant!

That lady is Dr. Barbara Bellar, candidate for Illinois State Senate, District 18.

Tough call; she’s up against Chicago politics.

Meanwhile, Romney and Obama, who’ve both taken a day off from politicking today for obvious reasons, are pretty much even stevens.

My take on the SCOTUS Obamacare ruling


(originally posted on facebook)

OK. So the SCOTUS has deemed Obamacare constitutional and thus able to go ahead. Now those people who know me, know that I’m far from being a liberal (but JFTR, I’m not conservative, I’m libertarian/classical liberal). Interestingly, it was Justice Roberts, the chief justice and a conservative, who cast the deciding vote. He framed Obamacare as a tax, and thus as a tax, the congress has every right to do what it wants. Don’t like it? Vote them out, or you shouldn’t have voted them in. Tough bikkies. Not the court’s problem.

Now don’t get me wrong, I can’t stand progressive ideology, so don’t see the following as some kind of *coming together* watershed moment. I still have utmost disdain for the OWS crowd, PETAphiles, and idiots who think that man-made CO2 emissions somehow cause global warming.

However, Obama is a democratically elected president, and the SCOTUS has deemed Obamacare constitutional. For better or for worse, people should deal with that and get working. It’s not as if now there’s suddenly universal “free” healthcare in America anyway. Basically, my understanding is that Obamacare now forces your lazy ass to buy some frickin’ health insurance if you don’t have it already, and no more of this pre-existing condition crap (although that was rorted by healthcare providers and clients alike).

And the sky won’t fall in with Medicare and Medicaid. I know this because we have a top-notch healthcare system in Australia comprising of BOTH public and private healthcare. We’ve had it for ages, and basically it works fine.

Now, as you all know, I’m certainly of the Right, and I just hope others on the Right deal with it and won’t carry on like whiny little shouty moonbat bitches like so many on the Left do about, say, another SCOTUS decision like *that one* in 2000.

Anyway, my interest in all this is rather limited beacuse, seriously, as an Australian living in Korea, I don’t really give that much of a fuck about American healthcare.

On a more practical level, however, I would like to talk briefly about healthcare in Korea. I hope people realise that their national health insurance does NOT cover everything. A couple of times during my vacat-… er, stay in Korea, a foreigner has been involved in a serious accident. He/They only had national health insurance, and the doctors WOULD NOT operate until tens of thousands of dollars could be paid. So, we did our best and passed round the tin. Too little. Too late. Those people died.

Moral of the story? I could not recommend high enough also obtaining private health insurance whilst you stay in Korea. Even the best is not overly expensive. Also, if you drive a motor vehicle, get some top notch – not just that basic crap – for you car. For instance, I have insurance that covers my car, me, any passengers, their car, their passengers, any other people, as well as property. I even pay 50 bucks more so that if some asshole sues me even if it’s not my fault (gee, they wouldn’t do that to a foreigner would they?), I’m covered.

Stay safe, people.

UPDATE

JM sent over a few links and posted a comment which my half-drunk (so far) Friday night arse has boiled down to this (and I’ll post the links after the comment).

(originally posted in comments on another bloke’s facebook thread to a lefty audience)

A mate sent over a few links. The ACA is now essentially a tax (as I said above). This means anyone not wanting to sign up to Obamacare will simply pay a tax, $95 the first year up to $695 (indexed) from 2015 or so. What Roberts’ decision also does is set a precedent for future limiting of the congress’ powers. In addition, Obamacare won’t need 60 votes to be overturned, now 51. That is significant (filibuster). Essentially, the young and spritely Justice Roberts did not rule on the constitutionality of Obamacare, but instead made it a tax that comes under the commerce clause which thus severely limits how much it can be played around with. An important distinction there is that congress can regulate but not compel commerce i.e. there goes being forced to pay for insurance. Another part of the ruling means states not wanting a bar more of medicaid that they haven’t already signed up for cannot be forced to do so. The other sticking point is that tax laws – of which Obamacare is now a part of – *must* originate from congress. Obamacare originated from the executive branch, and was passed only by the senate using arcane procedures. Should be interesting.

http://reason.com/blog/2012/06/28/issa-to-obama-what-happened-to-obamacare

Two further points, however.

The “raise taxes” argument is pretty strong out there in the Americanosphere, so criticising Obamacare as a tax rise probably won’t work – although the people pushing the most for the biggest tax increases probably aren’t the people who pay much tax. ;-) The average American may have a different opinion.

The overwhelming opinion I get from the Americans I know is that for too many, the American healthcare system is fucked. I’ve never had to pay hundreds of dollars for relatively minor treatment. Yes, the best healthcare does exist in America, but who the fuck can access it? Personally, I like the Australian and Korean model… buuuut, I’ve never been to, yet alone lived in America, so I’m open to argument.

Make that three…

Like the boat people crisis in Australia, perhaps it would be wise not to run this issue to ground on ideological/political lines.

How inspirational: Obama’s vision of cradle to the grave welfare dependency


I’m not convinced Obama really understands what America is all about.

“Julia”” is apparently what Obama thinks Americans aspire to. From the age of three until 67, she can’t seem to get a leg up without government handouts.

The “Julia” video, dreamed up by one of Obama’s true believer campaign officers, is supposed to be a viral video espousing how wonderful it is that a big government is always there watching over you, giving you a helping hand… with other people’s money.

Look, I hate to draw the analogy, but the North Korean government also promotes how their Dead Dear Leader – oops, now it’s the “Great Successor” – benevolently gives his people all they need in life.

Naturally, the “other side” of politics is having a field day with this one.

In four short years, it’s as if Obama’s central theme has gone from “Yes we can” to “No You Can’t.”

 

 

Australia’s carbon tax, like Obamacare, unconstitutional?


Via the Bolta, it could well be. The argument basically boils down to whether the feds can tax stuff owned by the states (the CO2 would be owned by the states).

The constitution says you can’t. Gillard says she wants to.

Fun times.

It looks like we have Gillard doing it over here with her CO2 trace gas tax, and it looks like we have Obama doing it over in the US with his likewise draconian Obamacare (on a lighter note, here’s why Obamacare will be shot down, BTW).

Gillard here. Obama there. In both cases you have federal government leaders trying to seize power that the constitution arguably says they can’t have.

What is with that; power hungry leftist leaders snubbing the founding document of the nations they’re supposed to be leading?

Anyway, with any luck, Gillard’s carbon dioxide tax will be challenged in the High Court like Obamacare is being challenged – and probably successfully, too – in the US Supreme Court.

If so, can we expect Julia to brazenly lash out like Obama did?

Obamacare Unconstitutional? Nevermind…


Perhaps Obama would be wiser in the future to try and make his laws constitutional rather than lashing out at the third arm of government merely for doing their job.

It’s widely expected – but not guaranteed – that the US Supreme Court will deem Obama’s landmark piece of legislation known colloquially as Obamacare won’t pass mustard insofar as the federal government can’t force people to buy something.

His line is, and this is disturbingly brazen, is that the Supreme Court is unelected whilst Congress, the Senate, and his good self is.

Wow.

Hey, why not just do away with the Supreme Court completely then?

“Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress,” Obama said.

Oh, you mean that law that was passed in the middle of the night that no one even had a chance to read?

Bring Obama down over healthcare, not crap he said 20 years ago or the birther issue


Hey, I’m guilty of the birther stuff, too, when it gained real notoriety from Donald Trump dipping his toe into the presidential contender piranha pond (and having his leg eaten off).

And it’s essentially wrong that that issue hasn’t been resolved properly, not least because of the latest investigation asserting that the birth certificate Obama finally released after Trump’s mounting pressure is a fake.

Also essentially wrong is Obama’s past, whether it was his close association with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, his 20 years of attendance at “God damn America” Jeremiah Wright’s church, or the recent video that has surfaced that shows Obama, as a Harvard student, singing the praises of some bloke who it’s claimed is a raaaaacist Mr nastypants.

However, I simply don’t see any of those bones of contention really going anywhere. The first two didn’t and the third won’t now. Sure it’s good fodder for the conservatives over in the States, but the likelihood of it changing anyone’s mind is slim.

What Obama’s opponents – and this includes the GOP’s current POTUS wannabes – should be hammering home ad nauseam is not the above but rather… Obamacare.

Sure, my American friends pretty much all confirm that something needed to be done about healthcare in the US despite it already being among the best in the world, but just as Obama relieving himself on our heads isn’t rain, Obamacare isn’t the solution to America’s perceived healthcare woes.

Too many people wet their pants when they say “Obama” and then imagine when you combine that with “healthcare” that all the ills of America will magically be cured because, like, you know, it’s OBAAAMA.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Apart from most likely being unconstitutional, it won’t actually put many people who aren’t on healthcare onto it, it’ll cost an arm and a leg, it will reduce both the quality and amount of service available (if you’re too old, don’t get sick), it will tie everybody up in red tape, it will hamstring small businesses, and it will take away a great deal many rights now enjoyed by both patients and doctors alike (not to mention individual states).

It’s draconian.

And those waivers…

For example, Democrat Harry Reid who pushed heavily for Obamacare managed to secure his entire state – Nevada – a waiver. Unions who helped fund the campaign for Obamacare also received waivers thus saving them a ton of cash. There are other examples such as McDonald’s.

Obamacare a poison pill. Far from being a solution, it is a myriad of problems.

Hammer that point home. Stop banging on about stupid birther crap or sh*t he said 20 years ago about some bloke no one’s heard of.

Going after “who” Obama is won’t work, not when it’s (cue angels singing) Obahahahahama.

The best bet the GOP has of unseating him – and let’s face it, if that bet were a road, it’d be  a road in the Andes – is attacking his disastrous policies.

And when it comes to those, there is no bigger elephant in the china shop than Obamacare… IF the truth about it becomes more widely known.

They must be kicking themselves


The headline the Australian lent this story really doesn’t do it justice.

Plane near President Obama forced to land

So, yeah. A Cessna flys too close to Marine One (Bambi’s helicopter) and action is taken. No big deal, right? The POTUS wasn’t in any danger. It wasn’t some kind of attempted terrorist attack.

But here’s the kicker…

A law enforcement official says police discovered about 18 kilograms of marijuana inside after it landed at Long Beach Airport.

Oooo, that’s gonna smart in the mornin’.

 

Afghanistan: an end in sight?


I don’t buy into the claim that the war in Afghanistan was illegal, immoral or that it wasn’t worth going in there and kicking some Taliban butt.

That said, we’re not really getting anywhere, are we? Thus, the following is probably the best course of action.

THE US and Afghan governments have begun secret* three-way talks with the Taliban, Afghan President Hamid Karzai told The Wall Street Journal, disclosing an important breakthrough in efforts to end the 10-year war.

Mr Karzai, whose government had protested being left out of recent talks between Washington and the insurgents, added he believes most Taliban are “definitively” interested in a peace settlement.

Now an assertation by Karzai doesn’t exactly carry much weight IMO, but let’s hope he’s right on this occaision. It looks like this report out of the Pentagon backs what Karzai is saying.

The Pentagon on Wednesday offered new details of its plan for shifting from a combat mission in Afghanistan to one focused on training and advising Afghan forces as they gradually shoulder more of the combat burden.

The Army identified five U.S.-based brigades, as well as an Army Reserve organization, that will be reconfigured and sent to Afghanistan between April and August to “generate, employ and sustain” Afghan forces.

The Army called this a “new mission” after more than 10 years of fighting in Afghanistan.

And there’s this interesting and hopefully positive development, as well.

Karzai’s comments came as he prepared to meet the leaders of neighbouring Pakistan and Iran in Islamabad on Thursday for a summit set to focus on security issues, including the Taliban insurgency and support for it from within Pakistan. He did not give any further details about the contacts.

Now I’m no military strategist hotshot, but I really don’t think the West has to worry too much about Taliban strikes on our home soil or Iran cutting off its oil supplies if the US/NATO has a less active role in the region. Iran needs the money and/or gold more than ever thanks to sanctions; gold which they’re reportedly using to by grain (from Australia no less) and which others are reportedly using to buy Iranian oil.

*BTW, the talks aren’t really “secret” are they when word of them is splashed across the WSJ and the Australian.

The US military has a hard-on for Ron Paul


When I first came across this at InfoWars, I was a little sceptical since Alex Jones can come up with some pretty out-there info and precepts.

Not only are soldiers and veterans who support Paul set to march on the White House come February 20, just check out the level of support.

And a little googling later we see a similar story run by Yahoo!

Rep. Ron Paul might not be one of the Republican candidates for president who has been in the spotlight lately, but that doesn’t mean that he has been forgotten. Paul has still been receiving monetary donations for his campaign, and he has received the most money from military service members, according to the Army Times.

This is starting to get a bit less “fringey”.

Did I say starting? My bad. I trawl a lot of media but missed this piece from Timothy Egan in the New York Times… dated just before Christmas.

The men and women in uniform probably wouldn’t support this proponent of limited engagement. So goes the conventional wisdom, which holds that those in the military support a leader itching for a fight.

But in fact, Representative Ron Paul, the congressman who favors the most minimalist American combat role of any major presidential candidate and who said all of the above quotes, has more financial support from active duty members of the service than any other politician.

As of the last reporting date, at the end of September, Paul leads all candidates by far in donations from service members. This trend has been in place since 2008, when Paul ran for president with a similar stance: calling nonsense at hawk squawk from both parties.

NYT, Yahoo! Meh;  no one gets the eyeballs like Jon Stewart gets the eyeballs. The problem there, of course, is that Stewart isn’t exactly the Republican Party’s biggest cheerleader.

But check this interview out.

Heck, even one of the best, if not the best, economics blogs on the Net – ZeroHedge- likes Ron Paul.

But here’s where it gets tricky. The Main Stream Media on both sides haven’t exactly been cheerleaders for him.

And in something one could so far never really consider a “mainstream” news source, one of the topmost influential/read Conservative blogs, HotAir, surveyed its readers and Paul didn’t fare so well.

Four per cent… EEK!

Add to that, even though Paul receives almost twice as much in campaign contributions from members of the US military, that distant number two is… Obama.

Vice presidential candidate, perhaps?

UPDATE

Some recent figures of who US military members are donating to. Yep. Paul… by a long shot.
