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.

Illegal Aliens Attack Newspaper for Calling Them Illegal

Illegal Alien Activists in California One Step Away from French Newspaper Terrorists

By Warner Todd Huston, Publius Forum, 1/9/15

With their vandalism of offices of the Santa Barbara News-Press this week, activists for illegal immigrants in California have proven themselves to be but a single step away from being just like the terrorists who killed 12 members of a French newspaper.

The media has been filled with news of the attack by Muslim terrorists on the offices of the left-wing French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in which 12 staffers of the paper were killed. The Muslims attacked the paper and murdered the publication’s staffers because the Muslims felt that the paper had committed blasphemy against Islam.

Now, a newspaper in California has been attacked by illegal alien activists because it dares to use the word “illegal” to describe the criminals who have broken our laws to come into the United States.

Illegal alien activists vandalized the offices of the Santa Barbara News-Press over use of the word, spray painting such things as “the border is illegal, not the people who cross it” and other slogans on the walls of the paper’s offices.

With this sort of attack on the free press inside the USA, we can see that illegal activists are now becoming ever more militant. It is clear that they are not too far behind the terrorists who murdered newspaper staffers in France.
Obviously these illegal alien activists are attempting to intimidate the newspaper into eschewing the phrase “illegal alien” even though the phrase is perfectly descriptive and proper to use.

For its part the paper is refusing to stop its proper use of the term, and good for them.

But if the paper continues to ignore these activists for lawbreakers, how long will it be before they step up their hate-filled tactics? How long before they graduate from merely defacing private property to destroying that property? And then how far are they from killing people with whom they disagree?
In the end, what makes these activists for illegal immigrants much different from the terrorists in France?

Union thugs want more money to pickup garbage

Day nine and my garbage is still not picked up. My cat brought home a rat this past week (first time in the six years I’ve lived there) and we now have coyotes spotted in the area too (due to the garbage, I believe). I had to kill the rat with my bb gun and cats are now house-bound due to coyotes. Ugh. And why isn’t garbage being picked up? Take a wild guess…

Striking Waste Management drivers call customers with warning

Komo News: As pickup service resumes for some Waste Management residential customers, striking drivers have taken to the phones to get their side of the story out to many customers.

Countless residents have reported receiving robocalls left on their voicemail from people describing themselves as a Waste Management driver. The calls specifically address the company’s decision to hire replacement drivers.

“Waste Management is substituting us with drivers from out of state who may not be qualified to drive heavy garbage trucks on our region’s dangerous roads,” says one robocall. “Please be careful. Make sure your children stay out of the way of the trucks. Call police if you see something dangerous.

Waste Management maintains it has hired an ample number of replacement drivers, some of them on a permanent basis. Spokeswoman Robin Freedman says Waste Management is taking its best candidates from a recent job fair and running recruitment ads.

The walkout has affected 217,000 customers in the Seattle-Everett area. Some business owners have angrily paid to dump their own trash. In neighborhoods, flies are circling curbside garbage bins where trash has started to stink in the 70-degree summer weather. The Washington Fish and Wildlife Department urged residents to keep garbage enclosed to avoid attracting raccoons and bears.

Using replacement drivers from around the country, Waste Management has been offering limited service to priority commercial customers such as restaurants. Now, the company is screening applicants for permanent replacement jobs, spokeswoman Robin Freedman said.

“Our drivers have chosen to enter into a strike. We have an obligation to the community, so we’re going to hire replacement workers to get the job done,” she said. Waste Management has the contract to collect waste in 60 percent of Seattle.

About 150 yard waste and recycling truck drivers represented by Local 117 walked out on July 25 after their contract expired at the end of May. About 350 garbage truck drivers represented by Local 174 are not crossing picket lines.

Local 117 wants to close a gap of about $9 an hour between the yard waste-recycling truck drivers and the garbage haulers. They drive similar trucks and the same routes and deserve the same pay, the union says.

Waste Management says it’s offering a six-year deal that would raise average salaries from $58,000 to $68,000 a year. If benefits are included, the offer is worth $98,000 a year to a driver at the end of the sixth year, the company said.

The median household annual income in 2011 in King County was about $54,000 and in Snohomish County about $51,000, the state Office of Financial Management estimated.

Teamsters Local 117 has accused Waste Management of intimidation and refusing to bargain in good faith. Members are not concerned about losing their jobs because they expect the National Labor Relations Board to agree that Waste Management has committed unfair labor practices, spokeswoman Brenda Wiest said. Hiring replacement workers is “another bullying tactic to intimidate and threaten drivers instead of bargaining in good faith,” she said.

No new talks have been announced as tension and pressure mount, like the growing mounds of garbage bags at many homes and businesses.

Bullying tactics? Like their robocalls telling people to call the police?

The salary package they offer sounds pretty darn good for the skills required for this job – basically a high school education, commercial driver’s license, lifting, and ability to handle the smell. Waste Management started airing radio commercials yesterday morning for replacement truck drivers. By noon, they already had 250 applicants.

These union thugs are dangerous and greedy. With unemployment still above 8% you’d think they would be happy just to have a job.

Update: The union & Waste Management reached a deal on Wednesday night. No details available yet on contract specifics. Union to vote on Thursday to ratify contract.

Breakdown Of Demographics Shows Obama In Trouble

By
The Western Center for Journalism
May 30, 2012

Barack Obama is not winning any voting bloc he lost in 2008, and he is not doing better with any bloc he did win four years ago.

Nevertheless, the “experts” keep telling us that this race is tied or that Obama is leading. The only way to explain these “expert’” pronouncements is that Obama has captured the coveted Power Ranger vote.  Hey, if dead people and illegal aliens can’t vote anymore, toy dummies must be filling in the gaps for the real ones! As to real people, here’s the truth of where they stand on Obama.

1) Catholics

recent Pew poll found Obama went from up 9 points to down 5 points with Catholics  since March. This translates to a shift of 18 million voters.

2) Evangelicals

An April Pew poll found Evangelical Christians favor Mitt Romney 73/20, and white Catholics support him 57/37.

3) Jews

A Knowledge Networks poll conducted March 14-27 found Obama getting just 61% of Jewish support. No Democrat has ever won while getting 67% or less of the Jewish vote.

4) Young voters

In 2008, Obama won young voters 66/32. Today, the support for Obama among young voters has been measured at just  48/41, but more importantly, young voters  have little enthusiasm to vote. Today, at best, 56% said they would vote compared to 78% who said the same in spring of 2008.

5) Women

In 2008, Obama won the female vote 56/43. Monday’s Gallup poll found Obama ahead with women by 49/42.

6) Men

Obama is losing men 50/42. In 2008, Obama lost men 49/48.

7) African Americans, Hispanics

In April, Gallup found Obama’s support among Blacks at 85% (down 5 points) and Hispanic support also down 5 points to 54%.

8) Veterans

In 2008, John McCain won the veteran vote 55/45. Monday’s Gallup poll found Obama losing 58/34.

9) White voters

Obama’s approval among white voters was 34% last month. It was 37% on Election Day 2010, a bloodbath for Democrats.

10) Union workers

Obama got 59% of the union household vote in 2008. That percentage actually went up in 2010 (61%), but it did them little good because the percentage of union voters fell 4% from 2008.  

11) Fraudulent/dead

In April, Reuters lamented, “ New state laws designed to fight voter fraud could reduce the number of Americans signing up to vote in this year’s presidential election by hundreds of thousands, a potential problem for President Barack Obama’s re-election bid.” Rock The Vote, a national voter registration project, has withdrawn from Florida because the Sunshine State’s anti-voter fraud laws are too tough to beat.

12) Big donors

Obama’s Big PACs are raising only a fraction of what Republican PACs are putting together for November.

13) Rank-and-file Democrats

The recent primaries in West Virginia (where a federal inmate got 40% of the vote against Obama), Arkansas (where an unknown Democrat got 42% against him), and Kentucky (where “uncommitted” got 40% against Obama) shows he has little support from rank-and-file Democrats.

So who are these “experts” interviewing?

Why Obama Will Win in 2012?

This essay is being circulated via e-mail. It is mistakenly attributed to conservative black economist Dr Walter Williams. But he did not write it.

The essay originated in April 2011 but is no less descriptive now. What the anonymous real author has to say is credible — and depressing. Our only hope is if the key Dem demographic groups not turn out to vote in the large numbers they did in 2008.

Note: In republishing this essay, I’ve done some tweaking and editing. Feel free to circulate the essay, but please, don’t attribute it to Dr. Williams!

H/t my dear friend Sol.

Why Obama can not lose the 2012 election

by Anonymous

Can President Obama be defeated in 2012?

No.

He can’t.

I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term.

The media won’t tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising.

But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012. The quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter. (Though the quality of the voters DOES matter!)

Obama gets reelected. Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win. Gas prices moving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins. The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins. War in the Middle East? He wins a second term.

America’s role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barack Obama! The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.

You are crazy. Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do.

And that’s why I know Obama will win. The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated.

Even when Obama’s policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn’t his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.

Obama’s reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:

1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn’t matter what he does. It’s a race thing. He’s one of us.

2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It’s really not more complex than that.

3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is still their great hope.

4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coat tails will carry them to victory nationwide.

5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party.

6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics.

7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his connections with Big Business and is gaining more everyday. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda.

8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all, to not love him would be racist.

9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic.

10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn’t need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. And lastly….

11) There is one last group, and it’s a huge group. The group overlaps with some of the groups listed above. What’s this last group? I’ll call this group The Parasites. They are the nearly one-half (43% at last count) of all U.S. adults who do not pay any federal taxes, most of whom receive money from the government. These people will vote for Obama because they will not do anything that might jeopardize the flow of taxpayer dollars to themselves.

Obama will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

The Goonion Solution

It appears our friends at the AFL-CIO (which in Dave’s world means American Federation of Losers-Communist International Operatives) have come up with some suggestions for ways the congressional “supercommittee” could go about reducing our nation’s debt:

The AFL-CIO is proposing a number of tax hikes and healthcare policy reforms, along with drawing troops down in Afghanistan and Iraq, to help bring down the national deficit.

In a memo sent to reporters Monday, Alison Omens, the labor federation’s director of media outreach, says the AFL-CIO will be urging members of Congress this October to help get Americans back to work, including passing $140 billion in funds for rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure and aiding state governments as proposed by President Obama in his American Jobs Act.

Further, the AFL-CIO will be calling on lawmakers not to pass proposals that would slash benefits under Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The memo comes as the congressional task force, known as the “supercommittee,” begins its job of coming up with at least $1.5 trillion in government spending cuts this fall.

And that is just for starters.

You can read the rest here.

Once you have finished reading, you will understand why the only reason these people have jobs is because they are a members of an organized mob.
