America Elected an Ignoramus – Tea Party Nation

America Elected an Ignoramus – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President. I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President.

As far back as January 2, 2010 I wrote that Obama had “a make-believe life”because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was true. His resume listed “community organizer”, an amorphous term that could mean anything, as his primary occupation. By October 2010 the Washington Times published a commentary of mine that said “millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?”

Even prior to his election, he had ensured that his entire paper trail of birth certificates, passports, college records, and other items most people can produce in under five minutes were “sealed” from public review, despite the fact that most modern presidents have had to submit their personal records, short of a colonoscopy exam, for examination. Among his first executive orders was one issued on January 21, 2009 to ensure none of these records saw the light of day.

When he finally produced a birth certificate, forensic analysts deemed it a forgery.

So, what really occurred on Election Day in 2008 was that a majority of voters, guided by an adoring mainstream press, elected an enigma. He rewarded their obsequiousness by being the first President since Grover Cleveland to not attend their annual Gridiron dinner.

Since then, anyone paying any attention has had to conclude that Americans elected an ignoramus, based solely on his own words and actions.

Here’s just a quick look at some of them.

Hans Bader, a scholar with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, addressed recent examples of Obama’s ignorance when he mocked Republicans as members of the Flat Earth Society in Columbus’ day for their skepticism of his green energy policies, among which was a hearty endorsement of algae—pond scum, but Columbus’ contemporaries knew the Earth was round, but doubted he could reach Asia via the Atlantic Ocean. Bader noted that Obama “falsely attributed to Muslims the invention of printing and even falsely claimed that Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as a new nation.”

The problem for many Americans, mostly registered Democrats and self-identified liberals is that his gaffes are dismissed despite the evidence that his policies have proved to be huge failures. His “stimulus” program wasted billions without producing any jobs, shovel-ready or not. We still have an 8.2% unemployment rate.

The fate of Obamacare will be decided shortly by the Supreme Court after 26 States brought suit against it as unconstitutional, but Obama, who was the editor of the Harvard Law Review and taught constitutional law, apparently has not read the document, claiming the judges are “unelected” (they are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate) and therefore have no right to pass judgment despite Marbury v Madison that established the Court’s role of judicial oversight.

Obama’s disdain and contempt for just about everyone except Muslims is astonishing. He has insulted just about every element of American society and many world leaders. In ways large and small this has been a constant element of his presidency. After gratuitously insulting doctors, bankers, and the insurance industry, he pushed hard to provide the planner of 9/11 a civil trial without all the protections afforded by the Constitution—in New York City.

Between January and July 2009, Obama sent a bust of Winston Churchill back to the British embassy. He gave the Queen of England an iPod with 40 show tunes, photos of his inauguration, and two of his speeches. Former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, was given a box set of 25 DVDs, all in a format that does not work in England. Later, eager to empty Guantanamo, he authorized the transfer of some detainees to a British protectorate, Bermuda, without consultation with the UK.

Obama’s contempt for Catholics has long been on display before the Obamacare demand that they jettison their consciences regarding the sanctity of human life. His nomination of Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic apostate, as Secretary of Health and Human Services earned her a warning from Bishop Joseph Naumann not to present herself for Holy Communion.

His antipathy for Israel and its Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu has been on display from the beginning of his term, at one point admonishing the Israelis for building new housing in their own capitol and at another suggesting they retreat to their 1967 borders, a suicidal notion that Israelis found appalling.

At one point he said, “One thing I’m proud of is that very rarely will you hear me simplify issues.” His campaign motto was “Yes we can.”

Early on, he sent Air Force One to do a low fly-by of New York City for a photo op, neglecting to tell anyone there and generating 9/11 flashbacks and panics. Then he embarked on a global trip that quickly was dubbed his “apology tour” for an America about which he could little good to cite. At one point, he actually bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. We do not dip our flag to any other and no U.S. President bows to any other state leader, let alone a monarch.

His ignorance has been on display for so long the public hardly takes notice. “I’ve now been in 57 states. I think one left to go,” he said during his 2008 campaign. He referred to “Austrian” as a language when no such language exists; Austrians speak German.

His ignorance of economics is legendary. He referred to a “profit and earnings ratio” when the correct term is price-to-earnings (P/E). He still thinks that, as long as the Federal Reserve can print money out of thin air, the nation can never go broke.

He actually believes the economy will improve if taxes are increased; something that has never before happened in the history of the nation.

Whole books can and will be written about Obama’s ignorance and failures of judgment that Americans will have to live with for a very long time, especially as future generations try to dig out from his tripling of the national debt, the highest unemployment rates since the Great Depression, and a housing market that has yet to have rebounded.

Add in gas prices Americans have never seen since gasoline was invented to power our cars and you have a man who is not what he claims to be and is too stupid to be the President of the United States, let along serve as a White House tourist guide.

Samuel L. Jackson: Look Beyond Race, Assess The Man! – Tea Party Nation

Samuel L. Jackson: Look Beyond Race, Assess The Man! – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Lloyd Marcus

Are you as sick of hearing me talking about race as I am talking about it? For crying out loud, all I ask is that liberals please, please, please look beyond their emotions and Obama’s skin color and honestly assess the man. It is stunning that liberals still think I should be totally committed to supporting this man solely because he is America‘s first black president and we share the same skin-color.

Suppose the black pastor of a church was discovered to be a child molester? Would the congregation continue to support their pedophile pastor because they share the same skin-color? Of course, not.

And yet, black actor Samuel L. Jackson, his liberal Hollywood buddies and a majority of black voters believe Obama’s character, policies and agenda are irrelevant. Jackson said he voted for Obama because he is black. Americans are expected to mindlessly support Obama, especially black Americans, solely because Obama is black. Folks, not only is such thinking immoral, racist and scary, it is just plain stupid. By the way, I looove Samuel L. Jackson movies.

As Leader of the Free World, Obama’s character and agenda are of the utmost importance. His skin color should be irrelevant. And yet, small-minded black racists and guilt-driven whites believe loyalty to skin-color should trump everything; right and wrong, good and evil. Sadly, Obama has caused even some Christians to forsake their first love, Christ, to worship an idol of race.

When Obama attacked freedom of religion by demanding that Catholic institutions fund baby killing, liberal Catholics continued their mantra, must support the black president. Committed Christians yelled, No, Mr President! Put us in jail, but we will not deny Christ for your evil mandate! A master of lies, manipulation, smoke and mirrors, Obama said, OK, I will order insurance companies to offer free abortion/contraceptive services. Bull Hockey! Nothing in life is free.

By forcing private insurance companies to provide free baby killing services, Obama is continuing his trashing of our Constitution. The president has no authority to force private industry to provide anything, nor can he force citizens to purchase anything. Obama’s presidency is straight out of the Twilight Zone; an unprecedented outrageous overreach of power and assault on individual freedom. Still, Obama zombies demand that I support my black president. Obama is destroying MY country. Why on earth would I support him?

Urban black student’s in the DC voucher school program were testing through the roof. Obama ended the program pandering to the teachers union whose dues fund the Democratic party. Obama denied black parents the right to rescue their kids from the dangerous black-board-jungle known as the DC public school system.

Self-induced black genocide. Half of all black babies are aborted. Blacks are the only race in America on the decline. By 2038, the black vote will be insignificant. And yet, Obama is obsessed with forcing taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood. Oh, did I mention that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood is an unapologetic racist?

But Samuel, “true brothers” like you expect us to ignore Obama’s passionate loyalty to an organization which was founded to exterminate blacks. Seventy-eight percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are in black neighborhoods. Thirty-five percent of babies aborted in America are black. Could Planned Parenthood be targeting blacks, giving us the “shaft”? Can you dig it?

Despite these documented Obama assaults on freedom, I will receive emails, “You should be ashamed being black and not supporting the president!” I do not reply to people who are “stuck on stupid and racism”.

Here is a video illustrating the vitriolic disdain black mind-numb racists have for black conservatives. This bullying black radio show host viciously attacks his female black conservative guest; insulting everything from her intellect to her physical appearance. He drills her. “Do you support Barack Obama?” His template – blacks not supporting Obama regardless of his policies/agenda are stupid traitors. He also believes the tea party is racist and blacks who belong to it are a disgrace.

I would have boldly proclaimed, “NO!, I do not support Obama. YES!, I am a proud member of the Tea Party” Then, I would proceed to nail that “jive turkey” to the wall with truth and facts. Though the host still would not get it, I prayerfully believe some in his audience would hear and receive the truth.

Mr Jackson, America has been pretty darn good to you. Your extraordinary success as an actor is well deserved. You earned it. But, what will in take for successful blacks such as you to set aside their bitterness and racism and liberal whites to get over their guilt to consider what is best for all Americans? Enough with the tired old 70s militant black rhetoric.

Mr Jackson, saying you support Obama solely because he is black is a slap in the face to the millions of your fellow American white fans who pay ten bucks a pop to see your movies. It is shameful for you to make such a blatantly racist proclamation. C’mon bro, I believe you are better than that.
