More Obama Obstructionism And Loathing For American Energy And Business

-
The Roanoke Times’ decks are awash with the Glad Christmas Tidings that Obama is blocking yet another energy pipeline.
It’s of interest that the RT has a Big Carbon Foot-Print and has not stated that they have any significant contracts for renewable energy.
Yet another hypocritical greenie fellow-traveler.
-
-
Dakota Access Pipeline delays cost builder millions, risking contract loss

-
-
Once again Obama has deployed his Community Organizer Gangs to stop a pre-approved  $3.8 billion privately funded domestic energy pipeline project that is 80% completed.  His tacit support for "His Gangs" is once again exploited by those who are carrying out their joint interests of obstructionism.
-
A key inside member of this Community Organizer team is:
“Raina Thiele, who volunteered for Obama in 2008 and worked for his reelection bid, said Native American concerns, resonated with Obama. Thiele later worked in the White House’s Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement and as a liaison to Native American communities.”
-
Didn’t we just have an election in which the American people clearly voted to support American energy development and independence?
Clearly Obama’s Legacy is one of arrogance and failure that he is playing out to the end.  How sad is that?

Manipulating Voters By Race To Pre-Win Elections

- 
Supreme Court seems concerned over race in Virginia's redistricting
“Breyer wrote for the court that the Alabama legislature and the federal court that ruled on the plan had taken a "mechanically numerical" view, instead of trying to figure out what percentage of black voters were needed to elect a candidate of their choice.”
-
“Justice Elena Kagan said it "defies belief" that the lower court in the Virginia case required all 12 districts to meet the same standard of having a 55 percent black majority.”
-
-
This case brings to light some views that very few voters have been aware of.  Most voters have known and been comfortable with the concept that it is Not OK to gerrymander black communities into non-black areas such that black voters would not be able to vote into office one of their own (if they so chose).
-
This case highlights the criteria that voting districts be surgically crafted so that the maximum number of 51% (not 55%) black-voter districts be created to create the opportunity for the election of the maximum number of black candidates.
-
One might wonder (hopefully without being labeled a bad person) about this legal policy of pre-determination of voting outcomes.
-
It is 53-years since the 1963 Civil Rights Act.  Is it still appropriate to Manipulate Voters by Race to a 51% Criteria in order to Pre-Win Elections?
-
·       The premise is that all black voters vote the same way, otherwise the 51% selection criteria doesn’t work as intended.  Is that not a bigoted assumption?
-
·       How does this relate to the 49% non-black voters in these districts very very few of whom were involved in black-person discrimination prior to 1963; in-fact most weren’t alive then and now their vote is legally pre-determined not to matter.  Not clear they view that as fair.
-
·       Given the concentration of other racial and ethnic groups in locations around the country, when will we start using the 51% gerrymandering system to pre-win candidates for them?
-
·       Doesn’t this whole activity continue to highlight racial and ethnic divisions and not diversity?  Is all this still necessary and appropriate going forward?  Did Obama not get elected twice?
-
·       On the other hand, perhaps all this is prescribed in the Bible (that old book we have discarded as not politically correct): 
Exodus 34:7 - visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth [generation].

My Sanctuary PickUp Truck

-
Roanoke Times, 12-4-2016, Pg 1, 8: “Undocumented” (that means illegal immigrant) students are seeking a “sanctuary campus” declaration to prevent deportation.
-
According to the media, many college presidents are “self-declaring” their schools to be illegal-immigrant sanctuaries.  Somehow in their “detached from reality” state of mind they think their self-declaration will shield these students, many of whom are being funded by other student’s excess tuition or taxpayer taxes, from Federal Immigration Laws.
-
In accordance with this concept, which must be valid having come from the most educated people in our country, I have decided to self-declare my “PickUp Truck a Sanctuary Vehicle.”
-
This means that whenever I’m in my PickUp I am immune to any state motor vehicle law.
Officers many not stop me or question me or even attempt to ask for my personal or vehicle ID.
Officers may not even think about writing me a ticket for anything.
Should any officer transgress against me and my Sanctuary-PickUp they will be subject to prosecution and massive lawsuits by the ACLU.
-
Or as “we” used to say back in the good old 60s:
I’m a child of the universe and I have a right to be here in my Sanctuary-PickUp Truck!
-
Hopefully many others will follow my actions so that we will have a consensus of most PickUp owners.  This will demonstrate we are correct in our actions since everyone knows that “a consensus” represents validity and cannot be challenged.
-
-
This spoof isn’t as good as RTs Casey could do; but then again, I’m not a Journalist, just an old math-science guy who is having difficulty comprehending the lunacy running amok in our country.

Democrats Embrace Farrakhan Admirer Ellison For DNC-Chair

- 
The DNC is in disarray after canning two Chair-Females for unethical-politics (if there is such a thing in the DNC) on behalf of Hillary in the primaries.
Instead of focusing on their own issues, including what to do with Felon-Elect Hillary, they all jumped on Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart Editor and now adviser to Trump.
-
Their new candidate for DNC chair looks like a mini-clone of Obama.  Apparently Ellison Loves Islam and Farrakhan who denigrates Jews and Israel.
What has happened to the “old” Democrat Party?
-
Rep. Keith Ellison faces renewed scrutiny over past ties to Nation of Islam, defense of anti-Semitic figures
“(CNN) Rep. Keith Ellison's past ties to the Nation of Islam and his defense of its anti-Semitic leader, Louis Farrakhan, are resurfacing as he campaigns to lead the Democratic National Committee.
Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress..”
-
The added element of bizarre behavior to the DNC mess, Chuck Schumer, the number one Jewish Senator in the country is supporting Ellison; this after ranting about Steve Bannon and Breitbart.  Really!
-
Chuck Schumer Betrays Israel Once Again, Supports Ellison For DNC Chair
“There have been questions about how much U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is Jewish, truly supports Israel before, but now those questions have become more searing after he announced he would support notorious Israel-hater Keith Ellison to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee.”
-
Obama has secured a new residence in DC and declared that he will be the key player in the DNC going forward.  If supporting Ellison is the first step along that new path it is clear that Obama didn’t learn anything from this election and his eight-years of failed policies and leadership.-

 

NewsWeek’s: Madam Not-President -- The Felon-Elect

-
-
-
-
The cover of the NewsWeek magazine wasn’t the real bad journalistic news.
-
The real bad journalistic news was the pathetic “news” article contained within!
-
Just how low and unprofessional have the Pravda Media sunk?
-
Newsweek editor makes major admission about leaked ‘Madam President’ issue
“The article read, in part:
…as the tone of the election grew darker and more bizarre by the day, President-elect Hillary Clinton “went high” when her opponent went even lower. No stranger to trudging through the mire of misogyny in her career as first lady, senator and secretary of state, President-elect Clinton continued to push for an issues-based campaign even as a handful of Trump’s most deplorable supporters, seeing the wide margin Clinton held among female voters, called to repeal the 19th Amendment. On Election Day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency.”
-
It seems like just a week ago that the Roanoke Times Editorial relabeled FaceBook as FakeBook; in fact it was just a week ago.
Haven't seen any editorial on this journalism gem.

Liberal Media Continues To Sanitize Castro’s Dastardly Legacy

-
Roanoke Times, 12-2-2016, Pg 5: Editorial: Cuba and Us
-
-
The editorial started out on a proper note and then became a long convoluted dissertation totally smoking-up the real issues of Castro’s massive human rights abuses including the murder of thousands of political opponents and the torture and imprisonment of tens of thousands of political opponents from his revolution until today.
This sanitizing program is combined with a revisionist view of marginalizing the threats and nuclear-danger from the Khrushchev-Castro Team in a Mutually Assured Destruction military cold-war posture.
Clearly there must be some Liberal-Progressive motivation for the “Castro was really an OK leader” dialogue and his mentor Khrushchev was really OK too.  It’s showing up now in almost all the major Pravda Media outlets..
-
Perhaps the motivation is to somehow gloss-over Obama’s pathetic agreements with Castro to open relations with them without any significant required change to the KGB-type dictatorial militarist Castro regime.
This by the folks who pride themselves on bashing Republicans for not being sensitive and not demanding enough on human rights!
And the highlight is on business!  Since when did Obama give a hoot about business?
-
A really bizarre item in the editorial is:
“Khrushchev was volatile in many ways – he once “supposedly” banged his shoe in a debate at the UN.
-
What is the matter with the editors of this statement?
It wasn’t “supposedly” it was for real and this hostile act was in the context of his threat:
“We will bury You!”
-
-
- 
-
-
-
I was a young artillery officer at the time and I can remember it as if it were yesterday.
This from our arch enemy who had his finger on the nuclear war trigger and was the leader that just a few years later installed multiple nuclear-tipped missiles in Cuba just a few minutes flight-time from most of our major cities, that we were helpless to stop once launched.
If the missiles and warheads were not removed during the Cuban-Russian Missile Crisis, a preemptive strike was our only option to protect our people.
-
Apparently the Pravda Media folks think all the cold-war veterans are dead and they are free and enabled to rewrite the history and stark reality of the Cold War without any push-back or challenge.
Have they not seen:
On the Beach
Thirteen Days
The Bedford Incident
Fail Safe
The Day After
-
And haven’t these editors viewed and fawned over the Democrat LBJ nasty Ad launched against Barry Goldwater:
Daisy:
-
-
As part of his deal with the Castro’s, why didn’t Obama demand and get back from Cuba the US Cop Killers that are basking in the Cuban sun, drinking rum and smoking cigars?

NJ Police Seek Return Of Joanne Chesimard, Fugitive Cop Killer In Cuba
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/12/18/nj-police-seek-return-of-joanne-chesimard-fugitive-cop-killer-in-cuba/
Joanne Chesimard was convicted of murdering (execution style) Trooper Werner Foerster during a gunfight after being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. Trooper James Harper was also seriously injured in the shooting.
Chesimard, whom the FBI has described as a member of the Black Liberation Army, was sentenced to life in prison.
But she escaped in 1979 and eventually ended up in Cuba, where she was granted asylum by Fidel Castro and has been living under the name Assata Shakur.
-
Cuba also granted asylum to three black militants who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque while being sought for the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom during a traffic stop.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/18/what-s-next-for-the-cop-killers-hiding-in-havana.html#
Charlie Hill continues to live in Cuba. Hill told a Washington Post reporter in 1999 that he had no regrets about killing Rosenbloom, who had a wife and two young daughters.

Pelosi: Rejoice, I’m Still Your Leader!

-
Roanoke Times, 12-1-2016, Pg 4: Dems “barely” re-elect Pelosi minority leader of House
-
-
-
-
Pelosi’s Resume of "Successful" Leadership includes Big changes from Obama’s election eight-years ago, at which time she was Leader of the House and the Dems controlled the Senate and the House,
Compare that to today’s reality:
-
A Republican President
Republican Vice President
Republican control of the Senate
Republican control of the House
Republican control of 31 state houses
A majority of Republican governors, 36 of 50
Republican control of a majority of county governments

Republican control of a majority of city governments
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton won 57

Tom Ford Dresses Michelle --- Melania Not So Much

- 
“Tom Ford on why he won't dress Melania Trump
"I was asked to dress [Melania Trump] quite a few years ago and I declined," Ford said on "The View" Wednesday. "She's not necessarily my image."
 The outspoken Democrat said that even if Hillary Clinton had won, he would not have dressed her.
"View" co-host Joy Behar pointed out that Ford did dress first lady Michelle Obama.
The designer defended his decision to dress Michelle Obama, saying he only did it once when she went to a dinner at Buckingham Palace with the Queen.”
-
-
At the expense of bringing down the wrath of the NOW-Girls, all my friends agree with Mr. Ford’s decision Not to dress Hillary!
-
Oh yea, I forgot – I did dress Michelle once!  What’s with this guy?
Even at my very advanced age – I would remember if I dressed a woman other than Janis, especially if she were the president’s wife!
-
In observing the photos of Melania and Michelle, one could certainly question Mr. Ford’s choice (his image) of which woman to dress and which one not to dress.
Does this guy have a T-deficiency problem or what?
-
-
-
-
-
On the subject of Michelle --- at some point during the Obama exit are the Obama’s, Princeton Univ. or the Pravda Media going to release to the public the alleged racist thesis Michelle wrote at Princeton that has been hidden since 2008?
What difference now would it make?
Yet more Obama transparency – NOT!

Charlotte Police Shooting Deemed Righteous

-
Shootings in Combat are often categorized as Righteous or Not.
Def. of Righteous: morally right, justifiable, blameless
It is clear that racial urban warfare has been launched upon our police officers.
Perhaps it is prudent to use the term Righteous for the justifiable taking of life by our police many of whom are facing deadly force in the line of duty.

Prosecutor Clears Officer in Man's Death, Says Man Was Armed
“A prosecutor on Wednesday cleared a Charlotte police officer in the killing of a black man whose death touched off civil unrest, and he presented detailed evidence to rebut assertions that the slain man was unarmed.
Officer Brentley Vinson was justified in opening fire on Keith Scott and won't face charges, Charlotte-Mecklenburg District Attorney Andrew Murray said.
In a 40-minute news presentation to news reporters, Murray produced evidence that Keith Scott was armed with a handgun and the officer who killed him feared Scott would shoot.
The announcement "profoundly disappointed" Scott's family, but they haven't decided whether to file a lawsuit, their lawyer said.
Scott, 43, was killed Sept. 20 in the parking lot of an apartment complex.
Much of Murray's presentation centered on the gun and debunking witnesses who said Scott wasn't armed.
Murray displayed a store's surveillance video taken shortly before the incident, showing the outline of what appeared to be a holstered gun on Scott's ankle. He said Scott's DNA was found on a Colt .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun recovered at the scene.
He shared a Facebook conversation from the man who said he sold the stolen gun to Scott and recognized him from TV coverage after the shooting, and police radio traffic where officers talked about the gun before confronting Scott.
He also released his report online and asked the public to review his findings before protesting again. Two nights of protests after the shooting resulted in looted stores near the scene and in downtown Charlotte, millions of dollars of damage, a fatal shooting and more than two dozen injuries to police officers and others.”
-
In this case yet again the Pravda Media flooded the public with fallacious stories making the “perp” look good and the police look bad.  Time and time again these false malignant stories dominate the media for weeks and in some cases months and fan the flames of racism and anti-police hostility.  To add insult to injury nasty politicians pour volatile-dialogue on the racial-flames for their own ends.

Obama Shows His True Inner-Colors For Castro

-
Obama has chosen to send a high-ranking White House official to Castro’s funeral after not sending any White House officials to the service for UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Clearly a self-disclosure of Obama’s “pink” personal values and beliefs.
What a sad end to a pathetic presidency!
-
Perhaps Thatcher’s view clashed with Obama’s love of socialism was at the root of the issue as it was with the Churchill Bust.
-
Margaret Thatcher — 'The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.'
-
-
A Reprint of commentary item August 02, 2012 applies:
Obama And The Churchill Bust: Revealing his inner-self
The UK Telegraph: Barack Obama sends bust of Winston Churchill on its way back to Britain
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/4623148/Barack-Obama-sends-bust-of-Winston-Churchill-on-its-way-back-to-Britain.html
-
Sometimes a simple gesture tells us much about a person!
Why wouldn’t Obama want to keep the Churchill Bust in the Oval Office?
After all, Churchill, and England, have been our best allies through two world wars and the cold war.
Perhaps one of Churchill’s pronouncements might be a clue:
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure,
the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.."
-- Winston Churchill

-
Clearly, that Churchill statement alone would be more than sufficient to warrant banishment from Obama’s Oval Office!
-
Obama has embraced socialism over the free-enterprise system and has made clear his disdain for businesses and his preference for big-government socialism.
-
Perhaps Obama will replace the Churchill bust with one of Evita Peron who better fits his political philosophy and ambitions and his inner-self.

Gangs Obstructing Energy Pipelines An Obama Legacy

12-2-2016 Update: More Disgusting Obama Pandering to his Anti-pipeline Gangs
Attorney general issues video appeal over pipeline protests
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has issued a video just days before a federal deadline, calling on all parties in the Dakota Access pipeline dispute to avoid violence.
Her video, released Friday evening, doesn't refer to an order for protesters to leave federal land by Monday. Authorities have said they won't physically enforce it.
Nor did she refer to her phone call to Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier. He issued a statement urging fewer words and more action. He says she offered neither assistance for law enforcement, nor a timeline for resolution.
Sen. John Hoeven disputed Lynch's claim she's working with the state and its congressional delegation to find a resolution. He says the administration needs to provide more actual law enforcement personnel, not just advisers, and let construction resume.”

-
-
The ongoing anti-pipeline movement is consistent with the Obama Street Gangs that he as embraced during the past eight years from the Wall Street Gang to the Wisconsin Anti-Walker Gang to the Black Lives Matter Gang to the Anti-Keystone Gang to the Anti-Dakota-Access Gang to the Anti-Police Gangs and now the Anti-Trump Election Gang.
Clearly all these Gangs and more have Obama’s tacit support or they would have been handled quickly and efficiently and not cultivated and nurtured by Obama’s minions.
Somewhat like his sanctuary cities harboring criminals from deportation.
-
We haven’t seen government-embraced street gangs like this since the departure of Chairman Mao:
Mao’s Cultural Revolution Comes To America
-
Roanoke Times, 11-30-2016, Pg 6:  Dakota Access oil pipeline protester’s arrests strain state courts.
-
The root cause of this problem is another Obama Gang initiative.  This pipeline is 90% complete, hundreds of millions have been spent and now Obama and his minions have been complicit in coddling and encouraging these obstructionist Gangs.
Once again Obama has shown his total disregard for his responsibilities to support this US government approved project that has been decreed by the courts as a GO but Obama says NO.
-
-
Roanoke Times, 11-30-2016 Pg 4:  Trudeau approves Pacific Coast pipeline.
-
Obama’s left-wing-nut Canadian bud Justin has just approved a pipeline from Canada’s Fracking-shale fields to the Pacific Ocean for export primarily to China.
That oil-gas would be going to US refineries via the Keystone except for Obama’s disdain of American Energy resources, American workers and the American economy.
Has there ever been such an anti-American leader?
