Why Obama fails and succeeds

Family Security Matters

Barack Obama fails because of the content of his character. He is amoral, lacking an ability to judge himself or his actions by any value or virtue. In his mind, Obama is good not because he is honest or wise; Obama is good because he is Obama. The implicit pattern of all his self-appraisals is: “It’s good because I like it”-”It’s right because I did it”-”It’s true because I want it to be true.”

It is not an expression of accomplishment, pride or self-esteem, but reveals the presence of a vacuum; a stagnant, arrested mentality matching his faith in the stagnant, arrested policies of modern American far-left liberalism.

The NDAA Explained in 3 Minutes

And the lights all went out in Caracas

It’s not The Bee Gees’ “Massachusetts” but the lights did go out in Caracas, as reported by The Guardian:

“A power plant failure has knocked out electricity across a large part of Venezuela, interrupting a nationally televised presidential ceremony and forcing a suspension of subway and train services around the country.  

The outage affected at least 14 of the country’s 23 states and caused several hours of traffic jams, as well as darkening homes and offices, in the capital, Caracas, on Friday.  

The plant, supplying electricity to Venezuela’s central and western regions, failed in the early afternoon, said the electricity minister, Jesse Chacon. Power was mostly restored in Caracas by nightfall but remained out in other parts of the country, where power failures are more common.”

Let’s just say that “Cubanization of Venezuela” is one step closer.  Venezuela, a country that never had routine power outages before Chavez, is now having them as often as they do in Castro’s Cuba.

Socialism and electricity just don’t go well together, do they?

A Venezuelan couple told me the other day that the lights go out so often that planning your evenings is impossible to do.  How can you go out or live a normal night life if the lights keep going out? 

Use candles?   Flash lights?  Well, they have a shortage of candles and batteries, too.

My Venezuelan friends did say that one good thing about the power outages is that they don’t have to hear President Maduro’s rants on TV. I remember my parents saying the same thing when the lights went out in Cuba!

 

5 Ways Obama Has Destroyed The Rule Of Law In America

Townhall

When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. — John Wayne

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. — George Orwell

 

Tell me why any American should respect the law?

Because it’s moral? Not necessarily. Slavery was once the law of the land. Abortion is the law of the land today. Even in a nation like America, it’s not unusual for laws to be unfair, unjust, and even immoral.

Is it because laws represent the will of the people? Not anymore. Today, the “law” is often summarily created from murky statutes by unelected bureaucrats who face no consequences for destroying people’s lives.

Well, is the law at least equally applied? Absolutely not. Your political affiliation and how well connected you are to the regime in charge can have a direct bearing on whether you’re prosecuted for breaking the law and how serious the penalty will be.

So, what’s left?

Top Socialist Economist Says He’s Been Working With Democrats & Obama “For A Long Time”

Gateway Pundit

Have you ever wondered why the Obama Administration’s plans for improving the U.S. economy always seem to fall flat? It just might have something to do with the fact that the Obama Administration has been working with someone who doesn’t like capitalism.

According to an article on France24.com, a well known economist who isn’t fond of capitalism, but promotes Socialism, has been working with the Democrats and the Obama Administration “for a long time”:

In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. While he is often linked to France’s Socialist Party, his writings have made him unusually popular in the US.

Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has only just been translated into English – several weeks ahead of schedule, due to popular demand – and the New York Times’s star columnist Paul Krugman has already described it as “the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade”.

The French economist’s current US book tour is turning into something of a red carpet event. So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

“The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for a long time,” Piketty told AFP in Washington.

Well, we all knew Obama was a socialist since he was elected.
Remember Joe the Plumber?

Now we know he’s been getting advice from international socialists.
What a shock.

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Great Depression workers benefit takers L

Family Security Matters

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work – in the private sector – and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

‘Dictatorship 101′: Beck’s Chilling Break-Down of What Parent Arrested After Questioning Common Core Means for America

The Blaze

Glenn Beck told his audience on Monday that the arrest of a Maryland father who was asking questions about Common Core is frightening evidence of the country moving further along the path that he says goes from “nudge,” to “shove,” to “shoot.”

For those unfamiliar with the terms, Beck explained that “it’s how every Marxist utopian dream begins.”

“You start simple, with just a little ‘nudge,’” he said.  “It’s Cash for Clunkers. It is trying to figure out a way to make energy prices ‘necessarily skyrocket,’ to nudge you into hybrids.”

Glenn Beck Reacts to Parent Arrested for Speaking Out Against Common Core, Robert Small

But when that doesn’t work, the government starts to “shove,” Beck continued. “That’s when they use the IRS to shut down opposing voices. They use the NSA to monitor and track American citizens…Then they start using regulation and they start arresting people to scare everybody.”

If that also fails to produce the results the government seeks, Beck said, historically, they start to shoot, or send people to re-education or internment camps.

Feds Impose Mandatory Event Data Recorders in All Cars

Moonbattery

In the near future, no American will drive alone. Wherever we go, Big Brother will be right there beside us:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rule requires all light passenger vehicles be equipped with an EDR [event data recorder] by Sep.1, 2014. Ninety-six percent of new cars already have them — measuring such inputs as speed, lateral acceleration, pedal effort, seat belt use, wheel spin, steering wheel turn and direction.

Big Government may not be the only villain in this attack on the Fourth Amendment. According to Tom Kowalick, head of the design team that is standardizing EDRs, they can be used to roll back the odometer or change the vehicle identification number.

Kowalick points out  that YouTube has hundreds of clips that demonstrate how to hack into automobile EDRs. “Look at the number of people who are making tools, electronic tools, to do these things. You’ll find hundreds of thousands of people who are already clicking onto these sites. And they must be doing that for some purpose,” he said.

Car theft could be in for a renaissance.

As always with ham-fisted government intrusion, unintended consequences reduce bureaucrats’ pernicious designs to the tip of an iceberg.

Electing the Enemy – Anti-American Philosophies Underlying Obama’s Policies

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE  SELLIN, PHD

The anti-American political philosophies underlying the policies of Barack  Hussein Obama can be defined as the juncture of three ideologies: socialism,  Islam and opportunistic racism to foster resentment among minority groups and  promote race and class conflict as a lubricant for his radical transformation of  the United States.
