Why Can’t Aka Obama Supporters Admit They’re Wrong?

obama-bows-saudi

The evidence is clear. The verdict is in. The administration run by the man who calls himself Obama is a complete, unmitigated disaster.

Unemployment, and by that I mean real unemployment, not the cooked numbers, is at its highest level since the Great Depression, while race relations have sunk to their lowest level in decades. Encouraged by a blind eye from the Justice Department, black racism has exploded via voter intimidation, violent flash mobs, and the knockout game.

The economy is in tatters, with record numbers of Americans on food stamps and government assistance; entire cities have gone bankrupt, with others imminent; and, around the world, our country is no longer admired, but looked upon as weak, cowardly, and morally degenerate.

Food and housing costs, illegal immigration, unfunded pension liabilities, and government surveillance have all gone up; job growth, start-up businesses, police morale, and trust in government have all gone down.

The aka Obama presidency is a failure. A failure on every level. Failure on a grand scale. And yet, his supporters stand steadfast in their devotion. Despite all the evidence, despite all the indisputable facts, supporters of the aka Obama presidency remain unwilling and unable to admit they were wrong. Why is that?

Do you know anyone who voted for aka Obama? I know plenty of people who did. Some have since come around and repented. Others remain unwavering in their support. Among this latter group, there are two common characteristics they all possess: guilt and an extreme sense of selfishness.

Call it narcissism, if you will, but I find it interesting that these qualities are found in equal numbers across the entire social and economic spectrum of aka Obama supporters.

Aka Obama’s wealthiest and most influential supporters come from the entertainment community, and these are the most hypocritical people I’ve ever met.

Los Angeles has one of the largest concentrations of homeless people in the country. Drive down 6th Street, headed towards downtown Los Angeles, and you’ll see thousands of men, women, and children living on the sidewalk in cardboard boxes. And yet, aside from an occasional appearance by Martin Sheen in a soup kitchen, not a single person in the entire entertainment community has ever lifted a finger to help them. Why? Because they don’t care.

East Los Angeles and South Central Los Angeles are filled with poverty, crime and gangs. The Hollywood community could choose to uplift these neighborhoods by building studios and production offices and offering jobs to the locals. Have they done it? Hell, no. They avoid these areas like the plague.

Hollywood activists can give all the Oscar speeches they want, but the bottom line is they don’t give a you-know-what about trying to make this country a better place. They don’t. What they do care about is being seen as do-gooders and saviors of the world, or haven’t you noticed that all their left-leaning political films and all their fund-raising events always star themselves in leading roles? They need to be worshipped in order to hide from their own guilt.

Remember that movie Pay It Forward? In the book, the lead guy is a black man. In the movie, Kevin Spacey took the part without batting an eye. And Hollywood actors care about civil rights? Remember the Oscar-winning film Argo? It’s based on the real life story of Mexican-American CIA operative Tony Mendez. The film’s director, Ben Affleck, changed the part to a white man. He didn’t bat an eye either, in fact, he played the part himself.

Hollywood racism and selfishness cuts both ways. Samuel Jackson told Ebony magazine that the only reason he voted for aka Obama was because he was black. Spike Lee never misses a chance to get in his racist snipes. Oprah says old white people “just have to die.”

Look at Hollywood’s biggest activists: Jane Fonda, Sean Penn, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow. If their parents had not gotten them their start in the business and helped build their careers, they’d all be selling shoes at the local mall. They know it. We know it. And they know that we know it. They run from their own guilt by projecting it onto others. They care only about themselves. They reek of selfishness.

Aka Obama’s wealthiest supporters will never admit they were wrong, because their guilt and their massive, self-serving egos simply will not allow it.

Sliding down the economic scale, aka Obama’s next group of diehard supporters consists of millions of union members. They also possess an extreme sense of selfishness and are riddled with guilt. They know their salary demands are crippling and bankrupting the country, they know they don’t deserve the massive pensions and early retirement plans they’ve conned the government into giving them, but they don’t care. It’s all about them. Like their Hollywood counterparts, they project their guilt onto hard-working Americans by demanding more and more. They wouldn’t dare to admit they were wrong in voting a Marxist into the White House.

At the far end of the economic scale are the government entitlement moochers. They, too, know that they’re scamming the system. They, too, project their guilt onto others by demanding more and more free stuff. They, too, go through life with an extreme sense of selfishness. They’ve been so conditioned by mass media that most of them are unable to even think clearly anymore. They react like Pavlov dogs to whatever stimuli is thrown their way. Together with aka Obama’s union supporters, they epitomize the term “useful idiot.”

For anyone in any of these three groups to admit that they were wrong in their support of aka Obama would require them to take responsibility for their own guilty actions, to face up to their own selfish natures, and that’s too much for any of them to handle. So they continue to deny reality. Like alcoholics who refuse to admit they have a problem, they continue to live in a fantasy world in which everyone else is the problem.
They’re children who refuse to grow up. They’re addicts high on delusion and fantasy. They’re hurtling towards their won self-created destruction and taking the rest of America with them.

Stop being nice to America-destroying Left

Conservatives, including me, like to blame Obama for everything that’s wrong with America.

But the truth is he wouldn’t be in the White House, ignoring and bypassing Congress by signing more executive orders and memoranda than any U.S. president in history:

  • without MILLIONS of Americans voting him into power, twice!
  • without the willful complicity of the establishment media
  • without the gutless spineless Republicans, and
  • without the approval of MILLIONS of Americans (50% of adults, according to Gallup Poll, still!), despite or because of everything he’s done.

To quote 18th century French diplomat Count Joseph Marie Maistre (1763-1821), “Every nation has the government it deserves.”

In the following op/ed by Michael Cummings for Clash Daily, he perfectly articulates my sentiments.

Tired of Losing: No More ‘Benefit of the Doubt’, Decorum for America-Destroying Leftists

Ben Shapiro, attorney, author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America, and Brietbart.com editor-at-large, said in a recent column:

“If someone calls you a racist, and you respond by stating that they are a reasonable human being with policy differences, you grant their premise: A reasonable person has called you a racist, which means it is reasonable to call you racist. You lose.”

I am tired of losing.

I am tired of giving people on the Left the benefit of the doubt. Is it not clear they do not mean well? Is it not clear they don’t want the same things as we? Is it not clear they do not wish to arrive at the same destination via a different path? These people are not on our side, and were I in Congress I would not call any member of the opposition party “My honorable friend” or “esteemed colleague.” Decorum be damned.

In the last week we’ve seen former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani get criticized on every news show over his statement that he didn’t think Barack Obama loves America. True Americans cheered as Giuliani didn’t back down when challenged over the days that followed. Even Scott Walker, when asked about what Rudy said of Obama, essentially said, “Ask Obama.” Well done, both of you.

We need more of this, more of calling these people out.

And why shouldn’t we? Barack Obama has done more damage to this country than any president or elected official. We need to tell the truth.

  • He and his perpetually angry wife criticized our country during the 2008 campaign.
  • He began his administration with a trip around the world to apologize for every wrongdoing he believes America has committed.
  • He destroyed the best health care system in the world.
  • He pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving a gaping hole the Islamic State is only happy to fill with the blood and body parts of Jews, Christians, and not-the-right-kind-of-Muslims.
  • He traded five, high value terrorists for a proven Army deserter, some of whose fellow soldiers died looking for him.
  • He has spent more than all other presidents combined.
  • He vetoed a bipartisan bill that would allow the building of the Keystone XL Pipeline, bringing more energy independence and jobs to our nation.
  • He pushed the FCC to treat the Internet as a public utility, paving the way not just for speed but content restriction.
  • He granted de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, and set processes in place to provide them tax credits and Social Security.

We know how long this list could get.

Note: Cummings left out Obama abandoning 4 Americans to die in Benghazi; the IRS singling out conservatives for extra scrutiny; the NSA spying on our every email, phonecall, and credit transaction; targeting right-wing Americans as extremist terrorists; promoting sodomy as U.S. foreign policy; imposing gun control via banning bullets by executive action; and much much more. See our “The Obama Chronicles” page.

In every facet of our lives, Barack Obama and people like him on the Left want to control us — never asking if we want to be controlled nor checking with the Constitution on the legality of their actions. Free enterprise, health care, freedom of religion, free Internet, strong military — they destroy everything they touch. In protecting America or our allies from danger, these people have made it clear they want chaos to reign.

I don’t know what else to say other than this: I hate Barack Obama. You can’t call me racist because I hate Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, too. You can’t call me sexist because I hate Harry Reid and Dick Durbin. You can’t call me anti-pervert because I hate Joe Biden.

Do I hate these people personally? No. How could I? I know none of them. But I hate anyone who becomes part of the 1% off the freedoms of the best country this world will ever know, but with every breath they take seek to fundamentally transform it.

Do I hate these people more than the Islamic State? No, but I hold them responsible for the bloodshed painting the entire Middle East.

My hatred is bipartisan. You would like to think that since, for the moment, we still have elections, we could vote these people out and put in place principled and courageous leaders who will keep their multiple and fervent promises to stop Obama. And in 2010 and 2014 we set decades old records in political power shifting by handing Republicans the keys to Congress. Since then, Republicans have taken impeachment and funding (shutdowns) off the table. Please tell me where our negotiating power resides other than at the bottom of the pit in the movie “300.” Save for a few, patriotic stalwarts, I hate the Republicans too.

But I love God, Jesus, and the American people, and with faith in all of these I remain optimistic that while we’re in a really dark part of history, we will see the light.

Taxpayers paid $225,756 for Senator Hillary Clinton’s private plane trips

Faces of Hillary

Jonathan Allen reports for Bloomberg, Jan. 29, 2015, that during her 8 years as a U.S. senator (D-NY), Hillary Clinton took more than 200 privately chartered flights at taxpayers’ expense, to the tune of $225,756.

More troubling is the fact that for some of those private plane trips, she used the jets of corporations and major campaign donors. So much for Hillary being for the poor and the little people.

Clinton, 67, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, reported the travel in official filings with the Senate. While there is no evidence Hillary’s Senate trips, which ranged in cost from less than $200 to upwards of $3,000 per flight, ran afoul of Senate rules, some senators don’t charter private flights at all. Others, like Hillary, do. Their privately chartered flights in just one year — 2013 — cost taxpayers $1 million, according to a report in USA Today.

The practice became a political issue last year for Democratic Senate candidates, including Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu, who spent $47,000 on charter flights in 2013, and Virginia’s Mark Warner, who spent $8,500 on a tour around his state that year. Landrieu lost, while Warner narrowly won.

In Clinton’s case, her private air travel included jets owned by a handful of private companies and investment groups, including Coca-Cola, Citigroup, Abbott Laboratories, InfoUSA (now known as InfoGroup Inc.), Avenue Capital Group LLC, and Saban Capital Group. Some of those private companies are major donors to Hillary and Bill Clinton which, of course, should raise conflict-of-interest questions:

1. Saban Capital Group was founded by longtime Clinton campaign financier Haim Saban, who, along with his wife and their family foundation, contributed between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation through 2013. Saban told Bloomberg Television he will spend “as much as needed” to help elect Hillary president in 2016.

2. Avenue Capital Group: On April 8, 2006, when Hillary criticized President George W. Bush’s use of the powers of the presidency at a women’s leadership forum in Providence, Rhode Island, she flew round trip on Avenue Capital Group’s plane at a cost of $408, which was billed to taxpayers. The firm, run by Clinton campaign benefactor Marc Lasry, later hired Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, who worked there until 2013.

3. InfoUSA: On Dec. 30, 2005, Hillary flew from White Plains, New York, to Washington to pick up top aide Huma Abedin on the way to Charleston, South Carolina. They rode aboard InfoUSA’s jet, which company founder Vinod Gupta, a close family friend, often used to transport and entertain the Clintons and other recognizable figures, according to court filings. Hillary Clinton billed the Senate for $858 to fly on his company’s plane. Bill Clinton made more than $3 million as an adviser to InfoUSA after leaving the White House in January 2001 and also was given options on 100,000 shares of stock, which were never exercised. In 2010, Gupta paid a $7.4 million settlement after the Securities and Exchange Commission charged him with misappropriating company funds.

4. Aircraft Services Group Inc.: The bulk of Senator Hillary’s privately chartered flights were chartered through Aircraft Services Group Inc., which boasts two Gulstream IV jets and a 16-seat Embraer Legacy among its managed fleet. The president and chief executive officer of Aircraft Services Group, George Reenstra, donated $500 apiece to Clinton’s Senate and presidential campaigns in 2006 and 2007, according to Federal Election Commission records.

An unnamed aide to Mitt Romney — who was criticized by the media for being an out-of-touch rich man during the 2012 presidential campaign — told multiple news outlets this week that Hillary would have a hard time portraying Romney as out of touch in a 2016 campaign when she owns multimillion dollar houses and seldom flies commercial.

Survey finds most Americans see U.S. as fading superpower

A recent Military Times survey finds America’s active-duty troops to be plagued with low morale in every indicator, from overall quality of life to pay, and with a low regard for their officers and senior military leadership.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll also finds civilian Americans in low spirits, with only 1 out of 4 likely voters or 27% who believe the United States will still be the most powerful nation in the world by the end of the 21st century.

That’s a drop of 10% in less than 6 years. In January 2009, when the great recession began and just before President Obama took office, 37% of likely voters thought the U.S. would still be the most powerful country in the world by the end of this century.

#TBT 2012: “An Obama Win Will Improve Race Relations”

Obama_laughing

The Root: When Barack Obama was elected president, some people assumed that one man and one election would be enough to help our country heal a racial wound 250 years in the making. In addition to his handling of the economic crisis and the war on terror, his first term was to be judged by some Americans according to one unspoken campaign promise: to permanently fix U.S. race relations.

obama bin laden

Despite his critics’ most ambitious attempts to paint his first term as a failure, by a number of measures — among them the killing of Osama bin Laden and the troop drawdown in Iraq — it has not been. But one measure in which it could be deemed a failure is its impact on race relations.

According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, this will be the most polarized election since 1988. Furthermore, a new Associated Press poll has found that anti-black attitudes have actually increased among Americans since the president took office, with a slight majority now holding anti-black feelings. An ABC Nightline special on “the new Klan” called President Obama’s election a great recruiting tool for hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

Well known KKK recruiter...

Well known KKK recruiter…

For these reasons it could be argued that Barack Obama’s first term will be regarded as disastrous for U.S. race relations. This is precisely why a second term could be seen as one of the most important steps forward in this country’s race relations since the height of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

A Continual Cycle

Since its inception, our country has followed a somewhat reliable pattern when it comes to race: It usually consists of one small step forward, followed by a gigantic step back and eventually a step forward that’s too big to be pulled back again.

The end of slavery represented a step forward for our nation. So did the number of black legislators who took seats in Congress as part of Reconstruction. But that seemingly momentous step forward was followed by a horrifying step back. The same year that slavery was abolished, in 1865, disgruntled former Confederate soldiers founded the Ku Klux Klan. African-American lawmakers began to disappear as newly restrictive voting laws kept many blacks from the polls. Jim Crow segregation policies and the Klan became additional tools for ensuring that black Americans remained second-class citizens. The lesson learned? When some people fear losing the only America they know, they turn to hate.

We would see this pattern repeated time and time again. In the early decades of the 20th century, while the wealthy black boxer Jack Johnson flaunted his interracial marriages and so-called Black Wall Street prospered in the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Okla., the number of lynchings reached an all-time high and race riots rocked the nation. It was a race riot that would lead to the destruction of Greenwood, as well as the Florida town of Rosewood (the destruction of which was chronicled in a 1997 film of the same name). Klan membership also skyrocketed, particularly after the release of the D.W. Griffith film Birth of a Nation in 1915.

With the dawn of the modern-day civil rights movement in the mid-20th century, again we saw our country step forward, but there were some painful steps back along the way to bring us where we are today. Among them was the re-emergence of the Klan as a powerful and intimidating force, resulting in the deaths of four little girls in a church bombing; and the killing of three teenage civil rights workers, which would inspire a federal investigation and the film Mississippi Burning. The list goes on.

A step forward...

A step forward…

But when it was all said and done, not only was our nation left with the Brown v. Board of Education decision that ended legalized school segregation, but the man who litigated that case before the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall, became the first black man to occupy a seat on the high court. Just three years ago the first black mayor was elected in Philadelphia, Miss., the town in which those three civil rights workers were murdered and whose leaders helped cover it up.

The Next Step Forward

Eric Holder

This is all to say that none of us should be surprised that race relations appear to have gotten worse since President Obama’s election. What would be surprising is if they had not. But history has shown us that in the long run, as long as our nation is willing to risk taking that first step and has the collective courage to try to keep moving forward, we will progress.

Today, in many ways, race relations are better than they have ever been. Unlike 100 years ago, today most young people are growing up to see those of different races not only as not so different but also as potential mates, and therefore potential family members. According to a Pew Research Center study in 2010, nearly 100 percent of millennials approve of interracial relationships. According to Census Bureau data, biracial children are the fastest-growing demographic in America.

thomasAnd if Barack Obama gets a second term, there will be a whole new generation of kids whose formative years and entire childhood have been shaped by the presence of a black man from a multiracial family in the White House. It will officially be the “new normal” and the only America they know. Such a step forward in race relations may just be too big for anyone to pull back.
