humanitarian awards and nobel peace prizes, my ass
[See most recent, Ambassador for Humanity Award
, presented by Steven Speilberg, in LA, last night @the Horn residence for a private party AND democratic fundraiser... "Tickets to the event started $10,000 per person, including dinner and a photo op. Those donating $32,400 per couple got listed as “sponsors” and could take part in a VIP reception. Those donating $64,800 per couple were listed as “hosts” and could take part in a “VIP clutch."
-- ...get all the scoop @Variety
i'm not seeing it (i mean, he was nominated for the peace prize just two weeks in -- seriously?); as such, i had to highlight this load of caca in pink just to stomach the leaps and turns of good faith.
but more than that, a president getting a trophy for doing what he is supposed to do?
for standing up for something just because it's the right thing to do?
getting a trophy for participating on the right side of life and liberty?
he is the president for pete's sake...don't all American presidents do this?
and it's going to be THAT kind of day.
And why so jaded G so early on the day, pray tell?
For he's compassionate to a point; he's high and mighty and noble and pleased only when he gets his way; he jumps to conclusions only when said conclusions align with that certain something that is also fully complaint with his agenda; for he's transparent ...as he promised....when he wants to be, how he wants to be, and when he wants to be, and only when it's in his favor.
I can see you, all of you, Mr. President.
[and truth be told, if i really did want to see him -- given he's running around San Diego somewhere today -- i really could catch a glimpse of the shining political puppet of genius]
but i don't; for i'm sitting around in my pj's doing THIS
what was I talking about?
now back to the Variety piece...
here's some presidential party favors fresh from the Horn's backyard...and i quote Ted Johnson quoting Him :
Obama warned of “a self-fulfilling prophesy” during a midterm election year where “people who have the most at stake in a government that works opt out of the system; those who don’t believe government can do anything are empowered; gridlock reigns, and we got this downward spiral of even more cynicism and more dysfunction. And we have to break out of that cycle and that’s what this election all about,” Obama said, in remarks that lasted about 15 minutes.
He added that his travels to other countries have led him not to “buy this notion purported here that that somehow America is on a downward trajectory. By every indicator we are better positioned than any country on earth to succeed in this knowledge economy in the 21st century. But what is absolutely true is that if we don’t make good choices we could decline, and we’re not going to make good choices unless we break out of this cycle in which dysfunction breeds cynicism, and we have to break out of it. And that happens during midterms. That does not happen during presidential elections.
which is funny, isn't it?
FOR -- after SIX years as president and adding a couple more if you go ahead and include his "presence" in the Senate -- HE IS WASHINGTON. He is to blame for leading this nation during this era of "dysfunction."
Who is he trying to kid?
Oh that's right; he's talking to his marry band of hollywood left wing loons.
Only with this
audience could he get away with talking in circles and come off reasonably coherent, as everyone gives way to a respectable round of ovation...
"people who have the most at stake in a government that works opt out of the system; those who don’t believe government can do anything are empowered; gridlock reigns, and we got this downward spiral of even more cynicism and more dysfunction. And we have to break out of that cycle and that’s what this election all about.....But what is absolutely true is that if we don’t make good choices we could decline, and we’re not going to make good choices unless we break out of this cycle in which dysfunction breeds cynicism, and we have to break out of it," He says.
i'm sorry, was that our president speaking? Did he not have a mobile teleprompter on his phone?
[just can't wait for SNL to imitate life with that snippet]
The real thing is, Washington under THIS administration is functioning just fine. too fine, in fact.
There is not one thing going wrong for THEM, if you know what I mean.
Ted Cruz has the idea... see his report on just how much "the challenges out there remain daunting and we have a Washington that’s not working” (according to Obama) (yeah, right, according to T and G).
For Washington is functioning via the Executive Branch, the Department of Justice, the Department of Land Management, the IRS, the Fed...shall I keep going? just fine and without any help from congress.
Thank you, Ted. See HERE
. [And honors go out to The Daily Caller and Matt Drudge
for the assist.]
According to Cruz (and he's not standing alone):
“President Obama has openly defied [rule of law] by repeatedly suspending, delaying, and waiving portions of the laws that he is charged to enforce. When President Obama disagreed with federal immigration laws, he instructed the Justice Department to cease enforcing the laws. He did the same thing with federal welfare law, drug laws, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act,” Cruz wrote. “In the more than two centuries of our nation’s history, there is simply no precedent for the White House wantonly ignoring federal law and asking others to do the same."
did you get into that and scroll down to page six?
oh, and BTW, we're just getting started.
pièce de résistance on the day....drum roll please:
, from the Wall Street Journal's Daniel Henninger...
i think i love you....
Obama Unleashes the Left.
This is how it begins:
In the U.S., the politics of the left versus the right rolls on with the predictability of traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge. It's a lot of honking. Until now. All of a sudden, the left has hit ramming speed across a broad swath of American life—in the universities, in politics and in government. People fingered as out of line with the far left's increasingly bizarre claims are being hit and hit hard
....you don't say....
Is that not the truth, or what?
And today, allow me, G, to highlight just how embedded into the system this stuff really goes...from Henninger's post:
It's obvious that the far left has decided there are no longer constraints on what it can do to anyone who disagrees with it. How did this happen? Who let the dogs out?
The answer is not university presidents. The answer is that the Obama administration let the dogs out.
The trigger event was an agreement signed last May between the federal government and the University of Montana to resolve a Title IX dispute over a sexual-assault case...
That's just a little something something from the middle -- you will have to read the entire piece for yourself. But don't fret, for it's well worth your time. [And, if you really got the time, here's the press release on 'the list'
of Universities being carefully guarded, watched, micro-managed, by this administration....]
Dysfunctional, my sweet petunia derriere
Every cornerstone of this nation --
Everywhere we turn -- the conservative half of the country is being attacked, mocked,victimized, vilified, pummeled into the ground, SUED
[you will really like that link too]-- and basically deemed, labeled, and shipped on a slow boat to China totally insignificant. Worthless, Dirt. Lower than dirt.
[G note: I would never attempt to shut down the liberal mindset and go on a rampage delivering high level personal attacks just because I don't agree with it. Never. How the Left could be so intimidated and affected by alternative ways to govern, or rather, not to govern, these fine United States is beyond my realm of understanding. Speaking of Civil Rights -- we all have a voice.]
All the while, THIS administration is functioning on all cylinders, with a mainstream media hypnotically going through the motions, virtually fallen all asleep from the hum of the deafening white noise, chock-full with the corruption of power and the lure of perpetuating ideological lies. With a media empowered from within and without, fully supportive of the little engine that could, as if the steaming locomotive on high speed rail is unseen; it chooses propaganda over the truth; it sells a Utopian pipe dream over the fundamental, self-reliant, rugged individualism this nation was originally intended and pre-destined by the real conductor, Divine Providence, of course.
There is no cause for alarm; for the plan is not only in motion and Organizing for America, but it's working.
There is no need to sound the red alert, Mr. President, so please make the little Mrs. happy and stop campaigning -- unless, of course, you happen to be one of the few, the proud, the 47%, who are NOT aligned with THIS. For then, and only then, duh, let the alarms blare. For this wily, progressive, oppressive, controlling, regulating, enterprising snuffing
, regime currently reigning as if America were a kingdom has got to go somewhere where the sun don't shine. This regime has not brought peace, unity, or anything of the sort; worshiping at the alter of "the ends justify the means," this administration has done nothing more than divide us, one by one, piece by piece. But of course maybe it's just me.
oh i'm sorry,
did I not give you all enough to read?
oh, my bad, maybe next time.
Make it a Good Day, G
Did you not catch the irony of that whole
Speilberg --Holocaust-- Award -- Obama thing?
From the Variety,
Obama told the crowd at the Century Plaza Hotel that with Spielberg’s “masterful” movie in which “we were reminded that the Holocaust was not a matter of distant history or abstract horror. The voices, the memories of survivors became immediate, and intimate, became a part of all of is.”
Which is hilarious..
given the current
Common Core question under fire --
was the Holocaust real, was it? was it?
Just one more good thing coming out of this administration. yay.
