After Republicans blocked the nomination earlier this month, they ultimately allowed for an up-or-down vote on Tuesday. The margin was historically close, with 58 senators supporting him and 41 opposing in the end.
The Left and Demorats are celebrating today, patting the backs of the four Republicans who joined them in confirming Hagel: Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Richard Shelby of Alabama and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
Of course, the Republicans signed off on the cloture vote. So, once again, they cave. Plus, we have those four RINOs who actually voted for Hagel. Hagel didn’t deserve an “up or down” vote because he didn’t even deserve the nomination. Hagel, in fact, isn’t much interested in doing anything for the military; one could make the argument that Chuck Hagel eminently dislikes the military. Lovely. An antisemite as our Secretary of Defense.
“The political reality is that the Jewish Lobby intimidates a lot of people around here.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2006
The US acts like a “schoolyard bully.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2007
Our new Secretary of Defense: Chuck Hagel. Thank God Louis Farrakhan supported the nomination of Chuck Hagel.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.
“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”
So remember, boys and girls, the moral of the story is:
When your boss or your company suggests you take a pay cut, you can quote a Famous Demorat and say: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that; it would undermine the dignity of my job.”
It’ll work every time. Guaranteed.
There’s so much going on these days and this week.
First to my mind: the wretched and twisted immolation (with much hope) of Christopher Dorner, nothing more than a narcissist who happens to have been black. Get in line, Dorner, as you queue up in Hell. The lines are lengthy and the heat unbearable. Get used to it, sir, because you placed yourself there, and no one else. My guess is that you were a mentally deficient genetic mutant from your early years and accepted into LAPD and the Navy because you were used. Yes, you were used. But not in the way you imagined. So I suppose that one of your alleged “grievances” was accurate in terms of your being nothing more than a Convenient Tool. But used by those who wanted you for nothing more than a statistic. You were a black male that made the LAPD quotas and Navy quotas appear congruent. They knew about your violent background but they purposely overlooked your history because you yielded another stat. So yes, Dorner: you were used. By GOWPs. By the Leftists and Demorats and PC invertebrates you so embraced.
You were a Convenient Tool; now you are a crispy and smouldering Tool. InfoWars is making you into a fallen martyr. Let me be plain: fuck them. Is that sufficiently clear for all of my readers? Dorner was a narcissistic murderer who fooled many who were stupid and ignorant: GOWPs. Guilty, Overeducated White People. He was a deceitful mutant from his time of birth. His mother, specifically, was so terribly concerned about his plight that she was drinking wine and eating chips during the standoff. As covered by CBS.
Mr Obama made his SOTU speech on Tuesday. Rentoon rentoon rentoon. Blah blah blah. Mr Obama’s bullshit is no more cohesive, logical, remarkable, stunning, innovative or insightful than it was in 2007 and 2008.
He is nothing more than any other Leftist Hack: tax and spend. Tax and spend. TRILLIONS and TRILLIONS in debt: we need to spend some more. His SOTU speech was the least-watched since 2000.
Obama’s fecal material hasn’t worked yet; it won’t work now. It is old and hackneyed and predictable and doddering.
Obama’s only advantage? The only difference between he and other Leftist Hacks? Correct! His melanin count. Effective with? Yes! GOWPs.
John Kerry is still an apologist and, literally, ineffective.
But perhaps of greater significance today:
A wealthy Democratic donor is fanning the flames of speculation that Hillary Clinton is indeed running for president.
Sacramento developer Angelo Tsakopoulos says Bill Clinton has confirmed the presumed plan that the former Secretary of State will make a bid for the White House again.
The millionaire told the Greek Reporter that Clinton’s husband revealed his wife’s political ambition, as the power couple gear up for a 2016 race.
This information sources from the area of my work. And the Greeks control much of Sacramento via their money, to include former Sheriffs. I could name at least three. So when people accredit some future performances to the influence of Greek cash, I pay attention.
Further, I continue to ramble on:
Is there anyone besides me who finds the voice of Mr Obama to be similar to that of cracked nails on a chalkboard or — worse yet — having to listen to Fran Drescher?
I am SO incredibly tired of hearing his lying voice covered every day, every week, every month. When his mouth opens one can count on lies issuing forth.
Just like a Muslim from Afghanistan hosted by the State of Fornicalia, defecating in the shower instead of the toilets. On a visa. Not like that happened or anything.
With a moment to breathe, I write this:
Did anyone over 50 — like me (ahem) — EVER think that their country could be so incredibly elitist or ignorant or insufferable or stupid or so easily duped or so simple or so needy or so dependent or so willing to subvert, controvert and ignore our foundational documents such as the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
I quite simply could not have predicted this 20 years ago. I saw it coming, but I was likewise ignorant.
And with this as something of a logical Bottom Line:
With all of the things that Leftists “want” –
HOW is it that they plan to PAY for all of these so-called “wants” — ?
No one ever seems to address this, except the most meager of Republicans and the bulk of Independents and True Conservatives.
You may WANT;
But how do you plan to PAY?
With the Demorats, they don’t have a plan to do so. They don’t seem to treat money as actual cash — as a thing that requires some form of sacrifice or cost – physically or psychically or psychologically or monetarily. It just IS because it can simply be DECLARED to be so.
Yes, I’m wandering. Yes, I’m venting. Yes, I’m platforming. Go with me. I think you’re there, you’re already with me. . .
Because it all adds up to: INSANITY.
And further, it adds up to not just insanity but insanity seeking money and power and control over those who could possibly OBJECT to the centralization of powers in DC.
Campaigning in Roanoke, Virginia on July 13th — just a few days ago — Mr Obama had this to say regarding his viewpoint on businesses in the nation:
That’s correct, businessmen and -women, you didn’t build your business — someone else did.
You heard and read that correctly, according to Mr Obama.
That is how fervently Mr Obama despises private business.
The full transcript is here at WhiteHouse.gov, should you disbelieve me.
President Barack Obama addressed supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday afternoon and took a shot at the business community. President Obama dismissed any credit business owners give themselves for their success:
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
Mr Obama goes on to say that business creators owe massive debts to their teachers, their local bridge builder. That’s like saying I’m a good cop because my parents had milk delivered for a while to the house in the 50s. Or that we had our garbage collected by two guys on a truck once a week.
Mr Obama is so beyond the pale of human ken as to be, in my opinion, not only ludicrous but patently dangerous.
He is biased, racist, a massive Leftist, schooled at the feet of persons such as Saul Alinsky, William Ayers and of course his father, Barack Hussein Obama — a Communist.
Victor Davis Hanson sums up Mr Obama’s racial obsession quite succinctly here:
Never has America been more assimilated, integrated, and intermarried — as is evident in everything from politics to popular culture, from statistics to anecdotes. Yet from late 2007 to 2012, Barack Obama has been establishing new rules of racial referencing. In general, his utterances follow a disheartening pattern. When he is ahead in the polls, has won an election, and is not campaigning, then he emphasizes the unity of the country. But when he is running for president, or campaigning for others, or sinking in the polls, he and his closest associates predictably revert to charges of racial bigotry, albeit usually coded and subtle. America is redeemed when it champions the Obamas, but retrograde when it does not.
In a word: precisely.
Mr Obama believes in government: HIS. He believes in race: HIS. He believes in nothing else.
Because you became successful, because you aren’t government, because you don’t RELY on government — you, Mr and Ms Private Business-Builder: you can go to Hell.
Because he’s going to tax you out of existence just as he’s going to tax private Healthcare out of business. Just you watch.
