Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s campaign speech on July 3, 2008? 

Answer: Apparently, it is irresponsible and “unpatriotic” to add $4 trillion to our national debt.

Interesting… Especially when this headline showed up on CBS News a couple days ago:

National debt has increased $4 trillion under Obama

The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch.

The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.

It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during Mr. Obama’s [first] term.

According to Obama, his own failed policies must have an “unpatriotic” element to them. After all, it was Obama and his Democratic Congress who managed to add another $4 trillion to our national debt in a quick two and a half years.

Democrats are trying to push back against Republicans who are using this story as ammo against President Obama’s campaign. They are attempting to use the dismal approval ratings of Congress to shutdown Republicans. The problem with this strategy is that the Democratic Party held the majorities in both the House of Representatives and Senate, but I guess they’re hoping the American people will be hit with amnesia. Also, if it is Congress’s fault for the extreme increase in our national debt, then wouldn’t it be then-Senator Obama’s fault for the trillions of dollars added on to our national debt under President Bush? Sorry, but you can’t have it both ways Democrats.

As for the Republicans, this video/audio clip is political gold for the 2012 presidential campaign and will soon be featured in dozens of political advertisements. Just wait and see.

Above is a video clip from the hit television series The West Wing where Josh Lyman, the Deputy Chief of Staff to the president, thinks he can easily handle the White House press pool. Notice how he gets stumped at the end of the clip about an “inflation plan”. Instead of admitting that the president doesn’t have a plan to tackle the possibility of inflation, Josh decides to call the press pool stupid and tells that he does have a plan. Entertaining, right?

Now let’s comeback to reality.

Here’s a video clip of President Obama’s White House Press Secretary Jay Carney from earlier today:

Haha… Priceless! It’s crazy how The West Wing can mirror real life at times.

On a serious note, where’s the [real] president’s plan at???

Guy Benson – from Townhall.com – made an interesting point:

Since his unmitigated failure of a budget was unanimously defeated in the Senate, this president has refused to offer a specific plan of his own on virtually anything at all.  Instead, he talks about “visions” and “contours” and “frameworks” — and tries to blame his opponents when his poor leadership is exposed.  Over the last five days, the president has (a) undermined a bargain with John Boehner by introducing an unacceptable eleventh-hour condition, (b) rejected “out of hand” a bipartisan compromise that he found to be politically unpalatable, and (c) delivered a speech that painted his opponents as the intractable extremists.  In light of this behavior, it’s entirely reasonable for Americans to wonder what, precisely, Barack Obama’s proposed solution might be.  Today, the White House dismissively waived off that question as a GOP talking point and condescendingly inquired if the journalist who dared to ask it was capable of taking notes.

Well said.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Federal Communications Commission’s plan to have the government regulate the Internet?

Answer: Introducing… Net Neutrality!

What is this? The federal government (under one of America’s most radical presidents) wants to regulate and put a stranglehold on another area of the free-market? No way! …Unfortunately, I am not surprised at all by this.

Last week, three Democrats on the FCC passed their horrid net neutrality law. The idea of Net Neutrality is not a new concept, but I thought the video – from Reason – would help you better understand the concept:

Net Neutrality is a proposed set of regulatory powers that would grant the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the ability to control how Internet service providers (ISPs) package their services. Proponents argue that such rules are necessary to ensure that ISPs treat all data on the Internet equally and don’t slow or even restrict access to various websites and other parts of the Internet.

However well-intentioned, the practical effect will be to limit consumer choice and grant the federal government unprecedented power over the Internet, all in the name of fixing a problem that doesn’t exist in any meaningful way. Indeed, examples of the behavior that Net Neutrality will combat are few and far between.

What’s even more horrendous? The FCC went ahead and did this against the will of the American people (of course):

American voters believe free market competition will protect Internet users more than government regulation and fear that regulation will be used to push a political agenda.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 21% of Likely U.S. Voters want the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to regulate the Internet as it does radio and television.

Here is my message to that 21% who want Net Neutrality: You and the FCC can stay the hell out of my Web browser! David Harsanyi says it best: Why would we want a prehistoric bureaucracy overseeing one of the past century’s great improvements?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the so-called Princeton Committee for Palestine?

Answer: They are mad that the school-run stores sell Sabra hummus.

Why are they so worked up over hummus? Well, the hummus is owned by a business that supports the Israeli military.

Greg Gutfeld – from Big Hollywood – reports:

So in case you missed it, the big news in 2010 was in Princeton, NJ where students voted on expanding the schools hummus offerings.

Yes, hummus.

A group, called the Princeton Committee for Palestine, want the school-run stores to sell more than one brand of the chick pea concoction. They claim that the one offered, Sabra, is owned by a business that supports the Israeli military.

And, I think we can all agree: since Jews are bad, a Jewish military is really bad!

[…]

Yes, I apologize for scarring your retinas, but it must be done. You need to be reminded how foolish students can be – but also, how entertaining their foolishness is, provided you aren’t close enough to smell their unshaven pits.

So, the gist: in these students misguided brains, hummus is worse than… Hamas.

I only hope that the idiocy they flaunt in that clip is more than matched by the sheer embarrassment of their parents.

Note: If these shameless creatures are your offspring, please stop paying their tuition, and force them to fend for themselves. My guess is any hummus will start looking tasty, for it will be all these hopeless sacks of self-congratulating cretins can afford.

Welcome to Liberal University La-La Land. Do I really have to elaborate more on this group of students’ extreme idiocy?

This video is just another example of why I really dislike dirty hippies.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Cancun, Mexico?

Answer: A bunch of climate change wing-nuts.

I swear, some of these climate change conferences are loaded with a bunch of global warming zombies, because they will sign anything that includes key phrases like, ”global effort,” “international community,” and “planetary.” The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) traveled to Mexico to attend the United Nations Conference on Climate Change and proved just how programmed these folks truly are:

This year, CFACT students created two mock-petitions to test U.N. Delegates. The first asked participants to help destabilize the United States economy, the second to ban water.

The first project, entitled “Petition to Set a Global Standard” sought to isolate and punish the United States of America for defying the international community, by refusing to bite, hook, line and sinker on the bait that is the Kyoto Protocol. The petition went so far as to encourage the United Nations to impose tariffs and trade restrictions on the U.S. in a scheme to destabilize the nation’s economy. Specifically, the scheme seeks to lower the U.S. GDP by 6% over a ten year period, unless the U.S. signs a U.N. treaty on global warming.

This would be an extremely radical move by the United Nations. Even so, radical left-wing environmentalists from around the world scrambled eagerly to sign.

The second project was as successful as the first. It was euphemistically entitled “Petition to Ban the Use of Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO)” (translation water). It was designed to show that if official U.N. delegates could be duped by college students into banning water, that they could essentially fall for anything, including pseudo-scientific studies which claim to show that global warming is man-caused.

Despite the apparently not-so-obvious reference to H2O, almost every delegate that collegian students approached signed their petition to ban that all too dangerous substance, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, is the major substance in acid rain, and is fatal if inhaled.

Granted, I would not have recognized “Dihydrogen Monoxide” as water, but then again, I am not a scientist… I am a “political-advertiser-social-media-graphic-design-tist” (Awesome, right?). I would hope these individuals attending this conference would know their “stuff” a little better. After all, these are the hippies that would rather see the United States’ economy crumble, than see a tree get cut down by a logger on the show Ax Men.

Meredith Jessup – from The Blaze – sums up this video real quick:

The video experiment helps us draw one of two conclusions: a) these people are absolutely clueless, or b) they really do hate water.  Either way, who really thinks these people should be considered “experts” when it comes to science?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting?

Answer: Enough frustration to cause a F-Bomb to explode!

Roll Call reports:

The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting.

One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “f— the president” while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker.

[…]

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) was also overheard saying that “we can’t trust him” not to cave to Republicans and extend the tax cuts again in two years, according to a Democratic source.

The anger aimed at the bill was widespread. As Democrats moved to block the bill from coming up on the floor, chants of “Just say no!” could be heard by reporters outside the room.

Why isn’t the liberal mainstream media covering this frustration? After all, they went wild with Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” moment. Perhaps it’s just me, but I believe saying “f*** the president” on the U.S. House floor is a little worse.

Exit Question: Who said it!? In the meantime, enjoy “Drop the Bomb On ‘Em” by Eminem… You better ring the alarm boy!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (D.R.E.A.M.) Act?

Answers: This devious piece of legislation was passed in the United States House of Representatives last night.

Do not be fooled by the name of this bill. The real goal of the DREAM Act is to provide amnesty for those who chose to enter our country illegally and make it even harder to enforce our immigration laws.

The Democrats are trying desperately to portray this disastrous piece of legislation as something that will benefit only children. Unfortunately, that is not true at all:

It will basically extend an amnesty to an estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens who are as old as 35 or 30, depending on which version of DREAM you are looking at.  But because aliens granted citizenship under the DREAM Act could then sponsor their spouses, children, siblings, and parents, chain migration could result in triple that number of illegal aliens ultimately receiving amnesty and becoming citizens.

What is even more of a joke is the requirements of college and the Armed Forces in-order to secure amnesty for themselves (and potentially their entire family):

You only have to show that you completed two years of college to be entitled to amnesty – there is no requirement that you actually obtain a degree.

[…]

But even those requirements to complete two years of college education or uniformed service can be waived by the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, if the alien can demonstrate “compelling circumstances” and the alien’s removal would cause a hardship to the alien, his spouse, parents or children.  This is such a loose, wide-open standard that it is no standard at all.  Aliens are always going to claim it is a hardship for them and their families if they are removed from the United States, even if the hardship is of their own making when they showed such a disregard for our laws by illegally entering the country, illegally working, and, in many cases, obtaining fraudulent identification and other authorization documents.

Unfortunately, there are a lot more negative and potential unintended consequences buried inside this hideous piece of legislation. Overall, it is designed to encourage illegal activity and reward lawbreakers, while ignoring enforcement and border security.

Speaking on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives last night, Democrats lined up to rattle off their key (but false) talking point: The DREAM Act is crucial, because it will help those who complete college or military service. Unfortunately, a majority of them failed to disclose the true details of this Nightmare Act and it passed… 216-198.

Democrats are not the only ones to blame. Here are the eight Republicans who crossed the aisle to vote yes for amnesty:

  • Joe Cao (defeated in the general election)
  • Mike Castle (defeated in the primary)
  • Lincoln Diaz-Balart (retiring)
  • Mario Diaz-Balart
  • Charles Djou (defeated in the general election)
  • Vern Ehlers (retiring)
  • Bob Inglis (defeated in the primary)
  • Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Ladies and gentlemen… That’s what the lame-duck session of congress will do.

Although last night’s final vote count was extremely disappointing, there is still light on the horizon: Passage in the U.S. Senate is unlikely.

For the sake of our country, let’s hope they are right and we are able to stop this Nightmare Act.

*UPDATE* – December 18, 2010 – 1:15 PM.

The DREAM Act cloture vote fails, 55-41! It will not be brought to the Senate floor to be voted on. VICTORY!
