Lifelong Black Democrat Votes Republican Because Obama "Is Destroying This Country"

The Political Insider ^ | October 22, 2014 | Rachel Mullen
Joyce, an 82 year old lifelong black Democrat called C-Span to express her dismay with her party and announce that she voted straight Republican this year. She is dismayed with the Democrats stance on religion, abortion, and the poor effects of Obama's policies on the black community and the country. "I have noticed in years what the Democratic party has done to my people. Unemployment is higher in the black community....than anywhere else. I cannot say, there's no way I can continue to say that I was a Christian and stay in the Democrat party. They advocate the killing of...

October 19, 2014, 2:30 pmNavajo Message To The Moon...

NAVAJO MESSAGE TO THE MOON    When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project,
it took the astronauts to a Navajo reservation in Arizona for training.

One day, a Navajo elder and his son came across the space crew walking among the rocks.
  The elder, who spoke only Navajo, asked a question.

His son translated for the NASA people:

"What are these guys in the big suits doing?"
One of the astronauts said that they were practicing for a trip to the moon.
When his son relayed this comment the Navajo elder got all excited and asked if it would be possible to
give to the astronauts a message to deliver to the moon.
Recognizing a promotional opportunity when he saw one, a NASA official accompanying the astronauts said,
"Why certainly!"  He then told an underling to get a tape recorder.

The Navajo elder's comments into the microphone were brief. The NASA official asked the son
if he would translate what his father had said.

The son listened to the recording and laughed uproariously.  But he refused to translate.

So the NASA people took the tape to a nearby Navajo village and played it for other members of the tribe.
They too laughed long and loudly, but refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.
An official government translator was summoned. After he finally stopped laughing, the translator relayed the message:

"WATCH OUT FOR THESE <snip>S. THEY HAVE COME TO STEAL YOUR LAND."

October 18, 2014, 12:26 pmDr. Ben Carson..

When radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Dr. Ben Carson if he would accept the U.S. surgeon general nomination from President Barack Obama, the famous neurosurgeon was definitive in his response.

"No, no," Carson replied immediately. "Because if I would, if I were going to serve in that position, I would have to serve under someone that I trusted."

Hewitt pressed further: "If he said I will not interfere with the guidance you give, we need someone to rally the country around being calm and appropriately prepared, you'd really, you'd say no to the president of the United States?"

"Yes, absolutely," Carson said.

October 17, 2014, 8:32 pmHypocrisy of Liberals...

!

The hypocrisy of liberals never ceases to amaze me. In fact, liberals would be comical if their ideas and actions weren't so destructive. Liberals cannot seem to grasp that if they bring our country down with their anti-American ideas, they will go down with it. Further, while doing their best to undermine all that is good about America liberals never seem to consider that no other nation on earth would put up with their seditious nonsense. I sometimes think our Founders should have added the following qualification to the First Amendment: This amendment is not intended to encourage stupidity.

I recently received one of those emails that gets forwarded from person to person on the Internet. This one is titled "How to Spot a Liberal." Perhaps you've seen it. It was intended to be funny. While there is a sense in which the statements about liberals contained in this document are humorous, on another level they are deeply disturbing, even tragic. In the remainder of this column, I share some of these statements along with my comments. Readers are encouraged to add their own examples of liberal hypocrisy in the "comments" section at the end of the column.

Have you noticed that liberals were against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan until Barack Obama took office? To a liberal anything one of their own does is by definition right, but the same action taken by a Republican or conservative is automatically wrong. I'll bet ISIS is glad Barack Obama is president and George W. Bush is not. Barack Obama is now the commander-in-chief. Do you feel safe yet?
    Have you noticed that liberals berate conservative politicians for what they call "corporate welfare" but have no problem with President Obama and his minions in Congress bailing out General Motors and wasting billions on so-called alternative energy businesses?   It isn't that liberals are against using government money to help businesses. They just want to be able to choose which businesses receive federal help and which don't. Of course those given unfettered access to the federal till are those that contribute substantially to the Democratic Party. Democrats like to reward "their" businesses while punishing those with conservative leanings.
    Have you noticed how wealthy liberals choose to live in gated communities but oppose fencing the southern border of the U.S. Liberals truly see themselves as special cases&#65533;elites who are above the laws, rules, and circumstances that apply to the rest of us. Liberals see nothing wrong with exempting themselves from the laws, regulations, and rules that apply to other Americans. After all, they are special. Liberals make sure that even their friends and relatives must go through a security barrier to visit them in their gated communities, but have no problem with terrorists simply walking across our southern border and gaining access to innocent Americans they are bent on killing.
    Have you noticed how liberals are quick to object to anything that even appears to harm an animal but have no qualms about slaughtering thousands of unborn human beings every year? To a liberal, licensed, responsible hunters are barbarians but brutal abortionists are saints. I like to ask my liberal colleagues in higher education this question: If you were stranded in the woods with nothing to eat would you rather be stranded with a hunter or an abortionist?
    Have you noticed that liberals will castigate a pregnant woman for smoking (Stop that! It will hurt the baby) but they have no problem with the same woman aborting her baby? The logic in this liberal point of view escapes me. Apparently, in the mind of a liberal it is somehow acceptable to kill an unborn baby, but don't get caught smoking around one. But then why should I be surprised&#65533;the only thing the words logic and liberal have in common is the letter "L."
    Have you noticed that liberals claim that Republicans are conducting a war on women but the Muslim world isn't? Liberals&#65533;particularly President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid&#65533;fall all over themselves pandering to Muslims. They go out of their way to avoid offending anyone of the Muslim faith. The irony in this is that the Muslims who Obama and crowd think are their friends would gladly behead them on television if they got the chance. Further, one of the segments of the population hurt worst by Barack Obama's failed domestic policies is women. Compared to liberals, Republicans are conducting a war FOR women, not against them.

The final statement in the email titled "How to Spot a Liberal" actually is humorous, so I will close with it: President Obama's approval ratings are so low that Kenyans are accusing him of being born in the United State.

October 16, 2014, 1:50 pmRevolting Truth...

Revolting Truth.

The Spanish philosopher George Santayana once said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."  And he must have been right because he was all, like, Spanish and philosophical and stuff.  So today on the Revolting Truth, we'd like to help those of you who work in the mainstream news media to remember � and to learn from � the past.

Let's begin.

Whether you still like president Obama personally or you've begun to notice he's kind of a mean-spirited jerk...  with a narcissistic tendency to lie his way out of uncomfortable situations... and to slough off blame for mistakes on his associates... while enclosing himself in a rigid and unworkable anti-American ideology that has made the lives of ordinary people worse around the globe even as he insensitively plays golf in taxpayer-funded luxury like a mean-spirited jerk... or did I already say that?

Anyway, no matter how you feel about Obama personally, it can no longer be denied that he's simply not very good at being president. His signature domestic policy, Obamacare, is an unwieldy and expensive mess kept afloat with unaffordable subsidies and illegal rewrites; what should have been a booming economic recovery is instead a shambolic monstrosity of part time labor and expanding welfare rolls; violent Islamism and Russian imperialism are both resurgent; and now we're all going to catch Ebola and die.  So let's face it...  president-wise, the guy's a crap-fest.

A new poll shows that 52% of Americans believe Obama's presidency is a failure. Of the remaining 48%, 17% think he's an evil hologram created by the Jews, 12% think Taylor Swift should get back with John Mayer because this time he really means it, and 19% no habla ingles and couldn't understand the question.

And yet when we look back into the past at the mainstream media's coverage of Obama, it now seems a bizarre combination of girlish adulation and neurotic denial. When there were hints of Obama's deep connections with lowlifes like shady businessman Tony Rezko and radicals like terrorist Bill Ayers, mainstream news people said, oh, that's the sort of thing only Fox News cares about; when his administration covered up fatal malfeasance in Benghazi, despicable corruption at the IRS, and unconstitutional manipulations at the Justice Department, the MSM said oh, that's the sort of thing only Fox News cares about; when conservatives pointed out that the major news outlets had virtually stopped doing honest journalism altogether, the outlets responded, oh, honest journalism is the sort of thing only Fox News cares about.

Instead, the mainstream media kowtowed to Obama with weak sauce questions like "What enchants you most about the presidency?" and Are your political opponents "uninformed, out of touch or irresponsible?" They depicted Obama on magazine covers as George Washington, Lincoln, and FDR. They launched massive attacks on anyone who challenged him whether it was a fair target like Sarah Palin or an ordinary plumber named Joe. In the words of Barbara Walters, they thought he was [quote] "going to be the next messiah."

So Mainstream Media, how did you get it so wrong? What can you learn from the past? [pause] You're stupid.  And corrupt.  That's pretty much it.  Glad I could help.

I'm Andrew Klavan with the Revolting Truth.

October 15, 2014, 12:13 pmReader comments on Obama...

Bob231 � 5 hours ago

The President has failed.

This is not something that was unexpected. Obama and the CDC knew for months Ebola could spread in Africa. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that in 24 hours, someone from Liberia can end up in the US.

The President has failed on several fronts

1) His overconfidence that it was next to impossible for Ebola to come to the US
2) His office of CDC improperly instructing hospitals on what warning flags of patients entering the hospital, such as recent travel to Africa
3) The lack of a readiness plan on the clean up and disposal. Three days after the death of Duncan, his apartment was finally sanitized.
4) Improper training and outright direction of the CDC on how staff should handle Ebola patients. Even today it is reviewing it's own procedures.

This is not some case where Obama can say "he read about it in the press". Obama personally knew about Ebola, was briefed on how to deal with it and the risks -- and FAILED to prevent the disease from starting and spreading here.

Obama, the buck stops with you on this one. You can't hide behind Republican obstructionism or bad information.

What we have here is just ineptitude and bad decision making in the Oval Office.

October 14, 2014, 10:20 amBill O'Reilly...

(CNSNews.com) - "The American people are not being told the whole truth by the Obama administration about two very important situations (Ebola and ISIS), and the BS has to stop," Fox News's Bill O'Reilly told his audience Monday night.

First, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is "not being candid" about Ebola: "Frieden should resign," O'Reilly said.

And second, President Obama has "created a myth" about a 60-nation coalition coming together to defeat the ISIS terrorists, something that is not happening. O'Reilly noted that the air campaign is not stopping the terrorists' advance, and the Turkish Army sits one mile way, doing nothing to stop the slaughter of civilians in Kobani.

"Great coalition, Mr. President. Way to go," O'Reilly said.

O'Reilly, in Monday night's "Talking Points" memo, said there is "no compelling reason" for West Africans to come to the U.S. when the Ebola epidemic is raging in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

"This is a national security issue, is it not? What reason is there on this earth not to suspend visas from that area?  The truth is, there is no reason. Just a bunch of excuse-making."

CDC Director Frieden opposes a travel ban, saying it would make it more difficult to get medical personnel and supplies into West Africa. But O'Reilly called that excuse "total garbage."

O'Reilly noted that Frieden has refused multiple requests to appear on "The O'Reilly Factor."

"He knows that I know that he is not being canddid, that he is spinning the situation and not being forthcoming about how the disease is being spread. Frieden should resign," O'Reilly said.

The belief that civilian airport personnel will be able to spot dormant Ebola in air travelers "is stupid and irresponsible and puts all Americans at risk. It's a dumb and dangerous ruse, and Frieden is the chief propagandist. He knows better. 'Talking Points' is just asking for common sense, which the Obama administration is rejecting outright."

O'Reilly predicted that the administration "will soon reverse course" on admitting West Africans to the U.S.

He also insisted that Americans "are not being told the truth" about how an NBC cameraman contracted Ebola in West Africa.

"Americans have a right to know that," O'Reilly said. "And the failure to tell us is a huge concern. This has to stop. The federal government has got to level with the American people."

MADRID (AP) -- In the first known transmission of the outbreak of Ebola outside West Africa, a Spanish nurse who treated a missionary for the disease at a Madrid hospital has tested positive for the virus, Spain's health minister said Monday.

October 5, 2014, 11:14 amObama Incompetence...

President Obama sends his White House spokesman out to say he has "full confidence" in the director of the Secret Service, even though the presidential protection squad let an armed intruder run through the White House and a gun-packing felon stand right next to the president in an elevator.

Hours later, she is gone, fired.

Obama says a group of terrorists stomping across Iraq and Syria, killing children, raping women, slaughtering "infidels," is nothing but a bunch of wannabes, little more than a "JV" team trying to play out of their league. Weeks later, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is beheading Americans and threatening to attack the United States, prompting a worldwide scramble to contain the threat.

And Obama says the chances of Ebola making its way from Africa to America are "extremely low."

"We've been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn't get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we've taken new measures so that we're prepared here at home," he said Sept. 16.

Weeks later, a man flies into Dallas from Liberia. In the hospital, doctors misdiagnose him and, giving him antibiotics, send him home. Days later, the man tests positive for Ebola. And less than a week after that, hundreds are quarantined. No one knows what will happen next.

On Friday, the White House trotted out top officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the Health and Human Services agency to say don't panic, everything's fine.

"We continue to communicate. We continue to give good instruction. I think it is important to reflect on whatever lessons we learn, we build and incorporate," said HHS head Sylvia Burwell. Reassuring.

When candidate Obama was running for president in 2007, critics complained that he didn't have any real-life experience running... well, anything. Not a state, not a major company, not even a small business. His credentials for America's top job were slim: College professor, community organizer, three years in the U.S. Senate.

His opponent in 2007, Hillary Clinton, warned that he simply wouldn't know what to do when that 3 a.m. emergency phone call came in, demanding that he make the right decision right away. And it turns out she was absolutely right.

Obama has been over his head since Day 1. While the U.S. economy imploded, Obama decided to use a super-majority of Democrats in Congress to pass a health care reform plan that will cost trillions over the next decade. Six years later, he is back on the campaign trail before the mid-term elections, talking about his "plan" for the economy, which last month set a record for the lowest number of employed Americans.

On foreign policy, Obama campaigned that he would talk with the world's worst despots, boasted about a "reset" with Russia, gave speeches with soaring rhetoric about how the world would be a better place if America took a back seat, let others be in charge for a while.

Six years later, the Middle East is exploding, northern Africa is in turmoil, Russia is again invading countries and seizing terroritory. Obama's solution? Drop some bombs from 30,000 feet hoping to hit some ISIS terrorists, chastise Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu and snub Russian President Vladimir Putin. Oh, and ask the United Nations to do... something, anything.

Six years later, it's clear -- more so every day -- that Obama is unable to rise to the job. So is anyone really surprised that Ebola landed in Texas? And will anyone be surprised when President Ebola grants amnesty to millions of illegal aliens?

The only thing that is sure is how unsure Obama is. And one other thing is for sure: The next disastrous surprise is right around the corner
