“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama
“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984”

“A Truly Great Phony”

“Many years ago, I was a member of a committee that was recommending to whom grant money should be awarded. Since I knew one of the applicants, I asked if this meant that I should recuse myself from voting on his application.

“No,” the chairman said. “I know him too — and he is one of the truly great phonies of our time.””

“This episode came back to me recently, as I read an incisive column by Charles Krauthammer, citing some of the many gaffes in public statements by the President of the United States.”

“Nor is this the only gross misstatement that President Obama has gotten away with, thanks to the mainstream media, which sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil when it comes to Obama.

The presidential gaffe that struck me when I heard it was Barack Obama’s reference to a military corps as a military “corpse.” He is obviously a man who is used to sounding off about things he has paid little or no attention to in the past. His mispronunciation of a common military term was especially revealing to someone who was once in the Marine Corps, not Marine “corpse.”

Like other truly talented phonies, Barack Obama concentrates his skills on the effect of his words on other people — most of whom do not have the time to become knowledgeable about the things he is talking about. Whether what he says bears any relationship to the facts is politically irrelevant.

A talented con man, or a slick politician, does not waste his time trying to convince knowledgeable skeptics. His job is to keep the true believers believing. He is not going to convince the others anyway.

Back during Barack Obama’s first year in office, he kept repeating, with great apparent earnestness, that there were “shovel-ready” projects that would quickly provide many much-needed jobs, if only his spending plans were approved by Congress.”

  1. Interesting. Better hurry up and see (and hear) this before it disappears – which it will quickly.

  4. One thing has been explicitly clear from 2008 on …..we have a championship level WORDTWISTER in the WACKY HOUSE, wherein UP is DOWN, and the American people are seen as too stupid to know the difference. Might be credible! But since NOBODY has successfully put the WORDTWISTER in his place,it will go on,and on ,and on, until he is either arrested by the world court,or he creates his own little war, after which he WILL end up in the WORLD COURTroom,and damn few who were convicted by the Hague have ever escaped the bite of the BIGHT.

  5. With regard to the alleged gas attack on the Syrian populace, it is more than probable that the alleged sarin gas which was allegedly used on the people had it’s origin from Gadaffe’s warehouses…..what the hell ..he’s gone so he really doesn’t need the various gas cannisters anymore, so why not allow the gas to be sent to the Al Quada in Syria,after all ….they might need it. It is MORE than probable that that it was in fact used by Alquada rather than Assad. The fact that it did not effect a whole lot of people tells me that it was used by INEXPERIENCED jackasses, and I will offer three guesses who put the gas in the hands of Al Quada. You got it ….it was a major part of the inventory put in AlQuada’s hands by Soetoro..You don’t need a Harvard Phd to ssee through this little business deal which occurred at Benghazi.

  6. The goat “HANDLER” in the WACKY HOUSE, is now himself GIVING AWAY …TO THE ENEMY, CLASSIFIED INFORMATION regarding targets which have been selected by the top (CROOKED) brass FIXTURES at the pentagon. When their BEST LAID PLANS are turned around on them their response will probably be something like “YOU CAN’T WIN THEM ALL”,OHHHHHH WELLLLLLL. In the SICK LITTLE MINDS of our alleged leaders lies nothing but LIE AFTER LIE which they think the American people are going to swallow.. It is clear to me that the people in the WACKY HOUSE havn’t the slightest idea what they are supposed to be doing…..I would say we have IMBECILES at the helm of our country.

  7. The chief IMBECILE sits in the office of the WACKY HOUSE.

  8. Have a great day all! Godbless

    You only need to look into the faces of the alleged leaders …..their VACANT stare tells it all!

    Derrick Hollenbeck:

    “Black Man Savagely Beats 71 Year Old White Man”

    “The Left is uncomfortable about “keeping score” of racial attacks by black males on (especially) defenseless whites. The favorite targets of these cowards are fragile elderly whites and white women; although when they are assembled in sufficiently lopsided numbers, these predators will attack young healthy white men.

    The numbers of stories about these savage attacks are growing faster than the Democrat-controlled media can smother them. …



    Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the REBELS, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a SENIOR UN DIPLOMAT said Monday.

    Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

    But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.
    Damascus has recently facing growing Western accusations that its forces used such weapons, which President Obama has described as crossing a red line. But Ms. del Ponte’s remarks may serve to shift the focus of international concern.

    Ms. del Ponte, who in 1999 was appointed to head the U.N. war crimes tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda, has sometimes been a controversial figure. She was removed from her Rwanda post by the U.N. Security Council in 2003, but she continued as the chief prosecutor for the Yugoslav tribunal until 2008.

    Ms. del Ponte, a former Swiss prosecutor and attorney general, told Swiss TV: “Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals. According to their report of last week, which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated.”
    She gave no further details, the BBC said.
    This senior UN diplomat was the “UN’s boots on the ground” in the recent inspection charges of gas being used by the government in Syria….she has publicly said it was the REBELS that used the gas….

    Come on Obama… it’s time for you to “fess up” and admit that you lied again…and a big one this time…one that could get America into a WWIII…but why should you care, you are completely owned and control by the ‘international banksters’ who only have an interest in CONTROLLING Syria….

    This thing with Syria never has been about your concern for the people of Syria, it has always been about the gas pipeline that the (Shiite) Assad is going to build by 2014 along with Iran’s (Shiite) help….thereby putting your controller, Saudi Arabia (Sunni) “out of business”.

    And of course, the America government under Mr. Obama’s (Sunni) leadership, has been nothing more than a puppet and pawn of the Saudi king…. remember the bowing and kowtowing Obama did to the Saudi king?

    And the American people were supposed to believe he only wanted to tie his shoe up, when the people made such a fuss was made over the photo!.

    That gesture by Mr. Obama (Sunni) wasn’t just for public show…it was for REAL.. just ask the Saudi king (Sunni).

    This Syrian thing is nothing but a bunch of Shiite Muslims (Syria) refusing to do what a bunch of Sunni Muslims (Saudi Arabia) wants…and the Saudi’s (Sunni) sending their attack dogs (Americans) after Assad and his Shiite’s..

    This Syrian thing is ALL ABOUT MONEY (ours)….make no mistake and think it has any other motive.

    MONEY=CONTROL….He who has the money… has the control.


    When you finally understand this shiite, then you will know what the problem really is !!!

  12. RMinNC. “When you finally understand this Shiite, then you will know what the problem really is!!” Great comment, but you spelled the name of the instigator, “Shiite”, wrong.

  13. RM,
    I’ve always understood that the Usurper’s loyalties were with the Shiites – Iran and Syria. Notwithstanding the bow to the Saudi king, I don’t see any real evidence of Sunni loyalty. After all, he also bowed to the Japanese emperor.

    Remember how he never spoke out condemning the crackdown by Iran against the insurgents who wanted freedom not long after he took office?

    Personally I think that is one reason he seems to be unable to make a decision now (thank God that he is). He doesn’t want to hurt Assad too much because of Assad’s relationship with Iran. It appears that he is “conflicted” (LOL?) and just perhaps this reluctance may serve the world well – in the end. The UN is beginning to weigh in, and England appears very jittery.

    I heard this AM that he is going to seek congressional approval. We’ll see how that is going to turn out. I am not holding my breath.

  14. RM,
    P.S. Dean M. has had good insight in the Sunni/Shiite matter for some time. I wish he would weigh in on this present crisis if he feels so inclined.

  15. Sorry bout that KILTIE…..

    I never was a good speller…….but Shiite is Shiite anyway you look at it….

  16. Good summation of Obama’s preferences in the Middle East:

    Obama and Terrorists – or is it Obama and the Sunni Muslims?

    In a great article in the Independent, Robert Frisk points out that if Obama attacks Syrian leader Assad’s army, the US and Al Qaeda would be on the same side. However, Frisk incorrectly states that this would be the first time. Not so. As Gateway Pundit pointed out in prior posts, Obama was on the same side as Al Qaeda in Libya when bombing Gaddafi and his forces. Obama, also, sided with the terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, in Egypt, even providing them with $1.5 billion in aid, and then taking it away after they were overthrown.

    Pundits have tried to figure out Obama’s motives. Some say Obama is driven by anti -colonialism like his father. Obama’s anti-colonialism makes sense, but doesn’t address all of Obama’s motives in the Middle East, or necessarily his attacks against Christians and Jews. Others say that Obama is on the side of Islamists, which doesn’t address his siding with one Islamist group (Al Qaeda) over another Islamist group, or Islamist group wannabe like Assad. What does make sense is Obama’s policy of always siding with the Muslim Sunni sect.

    As Barry Rubin at PJ Media points out, Muslim Sunnis have been at odds with Muslim Shia’s, and vice versa, for a long time. Shia representatives Iran and Hezbollah support Assad. Sunni representatives, including Al Qaeda, support the Islamic rebels and the Muslim Brotherhood. Sunnis account for about 80% of the Muslim world. When Obama moves, he moves not with Christians, Jews or the majority of most Americans, Obama moves with the Muslim Sunni sect. The Sunni hatred of Shia’s, Jews and Americans is what Obama’s actions fit best. In addition, an Iranian involvement in the attack on Benghazi, is consistent with this thinking, because the Shia’s in Iran would not be happy with the US sending weapons to the Sunni rebels in Syria, who are the enemy of Assad and the Iranian Shia’s. The Iranian Shia’s would want to stop weapons used in overthrowing Assad, while bringing to light the fact that Obama was shipping arms under the table to Syria in the first place. Iran was hoping the poor press of the Benghazi affair would prevent Obama from being reelected. Unfortunately for the Iranian Shia’s, the Obama loving American media did not comply.

  17. Anyone heard of this site or know anything about it?

    I didn’t realize that the Supreme Court gave themselves the authority to determine if Federal Laws are Constitutional. The author seems to have some good points.. but good points (citizen grand juries, presidential eligibility, limited federal government…) sometimes fall on deaf ears.

  18. CabbyAZ……..
    They can say and think what they wish, but I am more convinced than ever that the Al Quada bung holes were supplied with sarin by the US government.

  19. White House Unveils “Peace On Earth” Christmas Ornament As Obama Prepares To To Bomb Syria…

    “Perfect timing.”


  20. If there has been a FORMAL declaration of war against Assad,then there needs to be Congressional approval. Since we are NO LONGER formally at war with anybody then Soetoro is going out on a extremely dangerous limb. Adolph Hitler done the same thing,and look what it got for him and his MERRY BAND OF SUPERMEN…………KA-PLUNK. “JUSTA SWINGIN!”

    “Wait, so Jesse Jackson is Obama’s real farther?”


  22. Did Obama Administration Leaks Already Spoil Syria Attack?

    “Even in doing something monumentally stupid, they compound it with extra special stupidity…”


    U.S. airstrikes into Syria will begin within days and involve Tomahawk cruise missiles fired by American warships in the eastern Mediterranean. They will last less than a week and target a limited number of Syrian military installations. And they will be designed to send a stern message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, not force him from power.

    That’s the word coming from some in the Obama administration — the White House swears it’s not them. And while Obama’s aides publicly insist that the President hasn’t made a final decision about whether to attack Syria, anonymous officials within his administration are leaking a strikingly large amount of detailed information about the timing, duration and scope of the potential military intervention. The flood of details raises a pair of related questions. Is the administration deliberately trying to telegraph its plans for a strike? And if so, why?

    “I have no earthly idea why they’re talking so much,” said retired Admiral William Fallon, the former head of the military’s Central Command. “It’s not leaking out; it’s coming out through a hose. It’s just a complete head-scratcher.”

  23. Do you get the picture that our world today is ruled just about everywhere by mad narcissistic sadists??

    “How you know when the relationship is really over….”

    Kim Jong Un Has Rumored Ex-Lover Machine-Gunned

    Hyon Song-wol, a singer, rumoured to be a former lover of the North Korean leader, is said to have been arrested on Aug 17 with 11 others for violating laws against pornography.

    The reports in South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper indicate that Hyon, a singer with the Unhasu Orchestra, was among those arrested on August 17 for violating domestic laws on pornography.

    All 12 were machine-gunned three days later, with other members of North Korea’s most famous pop groups and their immediate families forced to watch. The onlookers were then sent to prison camps, victims of the regime’s assumption of guilt by association, the reports stated.

    “They were executed with machine guns while the key members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band and Moranbong Band as well as the families of the victims looked on,” said a Chinese source reported in the newspaper.

    Hyon’s band was responsible for a string of patriotic hits in North Korea, including “Footsteps of Soldiers,” “I Love Pyongyang,” “She is a Discharged Soldier” and “We are Troops of the Party.” Her popularity reportedly peaked in 2005 with the song “Excellent Horse-Like Lady.”

  24. New Obamacare Rule Uses Term “Shared Responsibility Payments” 63 Times Instead of Tax…


    Why can’t we take this back to SCOTUS to re-establish that this catastrophe was never created as a tax, was never therefore argued before SCOTUS as a tax and was illegally created within SCOTUS itself by John Roberts? The whole foundation for it has no basis and even today is projected to the public as a non-tax:

    The Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) final rule on Obamacare’s individual mandate, released this week, uses the term “Shared Responsibility Payments” 63 times to describe the mandate’s non-compliance penalty, which the Supreme Court in 2012 defined as a tax.

    The 75-page rule published by the IRS, which is tasked with enforcing Obamacare as the law is fully implemented in 2014, is entitled “Shared Responsibility Payment for Not Maintaining Minimum Essential Coverage.”

    While the Obama administration originally pitched the individual mandate as a penalty, not a tax, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts ruled in June 2012 that Obamacare is only constitutional because the individual mandate is technically a tax.

    Using the term “shared responsibility payment” to refer to what was legally defined as a tax might constitute an act of dishonesty on the part of the Obama administration, according to one expert.

    “Obama and Terrorists – or is it Obama and the Sunni Muslims? -”

    That has been my point for the past three or four days…….its a SUNNI/SHIITE war….and you are also correct when you say that Obama sides with the Sunni….ALWAYS HAS AND ALWAYS WILL..

    His actions since become the illegal pResident have proven that over and over again…..

    The Syrian war, as I know it, is over that GAS PIPELINE that Syria and Iran want to complete by 2014…..if this happens, Saudi Arabia will no longer be the dominate energy supplier in the middle east……

    Obama knows this, Cameron of England knows this, and that funny French guy knows it too……and the king of Saudi Arabia also knows it .

    When this happens…the dollar will no longer be the world currency….and America will be “up a Shiite creek without a paddle” for supporting the Sunni king of Saudi Arabia…..


  26. Well,

    I was going to post – but will wait. I’m afraid of the Nazi spelling Police… 🙂

  27. WILLIAM….

    The Nazi spelling police have already gotten me today…..they fines me two bratworst.(see I did it again) ….

  28. OK….so lets update the Syrian situation as it stands right now…….

    1. The French say they will punish Syria, but they also say they will not commit ground troops or any other forces. They intend to use spit balls.

    2. Now the UK has bailed out too. NO troops or support also.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron lost a crushing vote endorsing military action against Syria by 13 votes Thursday, a stunning defeat that will almost guarantee that Britain plays no direct role in any U.S. attack on Bashar Assad’s government I suppose they will also join France in throwing spit balls from Jordan..

    3. So that leaves Mr. Obama “holding the bag” again (pun intended) lol know what I mean? Now he has two options.

    Option A.-
    Continue with the attack of Syria all by his lonesome and get the his butt kicked by the Russians, ( who have repeatedly told him to stay out of Syria) maybe China will throw a few punches, and of course we can’t forget Iran…..it is doubtful that Mr. Obama (with his vast knowledge and experience at the war game ) again pun intended, could pull this off even with the meager mouthy support from his buddies in the UK and France……so that leaves him another option….he can take door two.

    Option B-
    Call the four US war ships back home, eat his triple ration of crow pie and that reserved for the UK and France, leave the war business to someone who has at least a boy scout level of survival know, and go back to something he is good at, like playing ball with Reggie Love. ( I understand he’s good at that ).

    Now if he insist on Option A….the whole world is in trouble. First America and Israel will be punished. Then perhaps the UK and France for their boostful gibberish talking. If Option A is his course of action, at least he will not have to lie any more….he will have done exactly what he said he would do…for the first time in his presidency, even though only 8% of the American people will support this action and over 65% oppose it.

    If he selects Option B…we may still be in deep water. With only 8% of the American people supporting a senseless invasion of Syria and over 65% saying, “stay the hell out of there”…….then America will be ripe for another FALSE FLAG operation to show us that his invasion of Syria was the right choice to begin with……If he takes Option B and eats his crow pie, this will play on heavily on his mind, and we must be ever watchful for a BIG false flag in the near future.

    Because by then, he will need COVER…. some big time cover..


  29. William………
    When ever it concerns Soetoro it would be a backside reference which his lover has a LOPWORST. That is probably why Soetoro is attracted to all of his lovers…..they all are in possession of LOPWORSTS. (GERMAN SLANG TERM). I will let it to your imagination to figure out the American translation.




  33. I think that the song “JUSTA SWINGIN “would have been very appropriate during the Nurenberg war crimes trials. Seig HEIL…..ka plunk!.

  34. bye bye all…………time for my MEDS. har har. Have a great day tomorrow!

  35. Egyptian Christian Leader Furious Over Obama’s Support For Muslim Brotherhood: “Shame On Him”…


    An Egyptian Christian leader is calling out President Barack Obama and his administration for not doing enough in face of intense persecution against the Church by the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Following the recent barrage of church burnings, Father Rafic Greiche, the chief spokesman for the Catholic Church in Egypt, criticized President Obama for not speaking out against the worst violence against Egyptian Christians in nearly 700 years.

    “President Obama when he made a speech he just touched on the burning churches instead of telling the Muslim Brotherhood that they are terrorists and they are making terror on Egypt,” Greiche said. “He did not speak loud for this and shame on him if he is a Christian that he does not speak out loud.”

    “The spokesman of the White House who…was asked ‘What is the red line for the Christians in Egypt?’ he mocked and said, ‘I didn’t bring my red pen,” he noted.

    “So I think it was a mockery and not at its place and really shame on him also,” he said.

    Radical Islamists, many members of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, attacked at least 60 churches, Christian businesses, and institutions in the days following the crackdown against supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

    “Obama does not appear to understand the situation,” Greiche told AsiaNews. “In his speech he didn’t even so much as mention all the churches and Christian buildings being burnt down by the Muslim Brotherhood.”

    “This must absolutely be made clear: the Muslim Brothers are terrorists and are tied to groups belonging to al Qaeda and to the Salafites,” he said. “The history of the Muslim Brotherhood, even since their foundation, has been a history of 85 years of bloodshed.”

  36. Great Post and Commentary.

    With a wink and a nod, John Roberts commissioned our suffocation.
    I’m sure he sleeps well in that no one took notice that it was he who turned off the lights.

  37. RMinNC and William: Hey, Guys…I’ve been ronged. I was attemptin too maik a joke…I ment Shiite shood bee spelt in the POS spelling of the wurd errlier! Jeez! Mea culpa.

  38. Kiltie,

    Don’t take it personally – we all laugh at it. It’s a common comment we all make to each other, even when pertaining to ourselves for misspelling and on the lookout.

  39. Good Morning CW, et. al. – Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    “Mark Levin Goes Off Deep End: Calls Cruz Naturalized Citizen And Eligible To Be POTUS”
    CDR Charles Kerchner:

    “Mark Levin Showed All The Traits of a Scoundrel on His Radio Show Thursday”

    “Mark Levin’s brazen misstatements and disinformation on his radio show Thursday were unbelievable and shocking. He said Ted Cruz is eligible to be President even though he said Ted Cruz was a “naturalized Citizen”. As I said, unbelievable. I guess Mark, it’s hard to keep your mind straight when you are twisting the truth about what a “natural born Citizen” truly is to constitutional standards. And this disinformation is coming from a man who holds himself out as a constitutional expert. He is doing this on purpose. In my opinion, he is a coward on this issue of presidential eligibility since he will not allow anyone on the air, constitutional expert or otherwise, to debate him in a courteous, intelligent, and respectful way on this. All he spews out on this issue is anger, intimidation, disinformation, and ridicule. And he blocks all calls from listeners on this issue. What is he so afraid of? Maybe that the real truth might get onto the national airways. By way of a note as to correct historical information given to him in the past, a team of constitutionalists, me included, attending a conference in Washington DC in 2010, presented him and other dignitaries attending that event with historical and legal information on the founders and framers intent and true meaning of “natural born Citizen” of the United States. … .”

    “Moreover, the Supreme Court has consistently held that the distinction between natural born citizens and naturalized citizens in the context of
    Presidential eligibility remains valid.”…Hassan vs FEC


  43. Yes CW, Obama is a GREAT PHONY
    Let’s face it….the jig is up “Impeach Obama”

  44. The Won and the other One went to the Supreme Court for a down-home visit just a week before the Inauguration 2009 (and subsequent 2 Oaths of Office). I do believe the Won was a defendant in That Court at the time. The entire Court knew what was broiling and ignored it.

    Even Justice Thomas admitted they were evading “that” issue – on tape.
    ~ an historical moment, ignored, as well.

    I believe a certain Justice would not attend the get together back in January 2009.

    They know. They know everything.
