It is truly amazing to sit and watch the antics in Washington, D.C.
The Democrats in 2008 issued the mantra of “We Won”, get over it. Passing monstrous bills that Rep. Conyers even said “Why read the bill?”(Link) . Nancy Pelosi, then Speaker of the House referencing the Healthcare Bill by saying we “have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” (Link)
The usurping of Congress by Obama and Executive Orders/recess appointments/giving the EPA more power; ruling by fiat? Can’t get bills passed in Congress? No problem. Link
Obama’s latest appointment of Jeffrey Immelt (former JP Morgan exec. and CEO of GE), as head of his Economic Council makes one wonder if Obama has just made a plutocracy within his own Administration. Link
Obama is given the shrewd tactician award by this author. He learned from Saul Alinsky, taught ACORN the system; has ties to the DSA (Link), the Gamaliel Foundation (Link) and since Rev. Jeremiah Wright was exposed (Obama sat in his church for twenty years, Wright married Barack and Michelle and baptized the Obamas’ children) Obama is reaching out for religious advice from a Marxist in clergy garb, Jim Wallis. (Link)
Is a man known by the company he keeps?
Anita Dunn: Communications director: Exposed as a Mao Zedong admirer. Then stepped down, HOWEVER her husband, Robert Bauer, a former partner at Perkins Coie (law firm involved in the Obama birth certificate inquiry) is now personal counsel to Obama and is the White House counsel. (Link) (Link). Anita Dunn is actually credited with leading the charge of criticism of the Fox News Channel in 2009.
Ron Bloom: Manufacturing “Advisor” (Czar). His early life revolved around Habonim, a progressive Labor Zionist youth movement that emphasizes cultural Judaism, socialism and social justice. (Link)
Cass Sunstein (husband of Samantha Power), author of the book Nudge: Sunstein feels once it is realized that Americans have a little Homer Simpson in them and can be nudged into making the right choices. (Link) Is Cass Sunstein assisting Obama in nudging Americans into totalitarianism? (Link)
Carol Browner: Obama’s “Global Warming Czar”. Until late 2008 Browner was a member of Socialist International Commission for a Sustainable World Society.
According to the Washington Times January 12 2009; (Link)
- Until last week, Carol M. Browner, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.
The “Kissee,Kissee make Nice-Nice” agenda:
After the “shell-lacking” of the Democrats by the Tea Party Patriots (Democrats/Independents/Republicans), the Independents (no party affiliation) and Republicans and losing control of the House, a new tactic has emerged.
Will the Obama 2012 campaign slogan be: “Together We Thrive”?
Read at link below:
Are the Democrats utilizing a little Edward Bernays propaganda/sales pitch?
1. T-Shirts given out at Memorial connected to Organizing for America (Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign arm). “Together We Thrive”
2. Tucson speech by Obama of” togetherness”…..unification of America.
3. Now the Democrats are suggesting “mixed party” seating at the State of the Union address in the near future (Togetherness theme again?)
Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado on Wednesday suggested ending the tradition of separating lawmakers into Republican and Democratic camps. He said that seating arrangement offers a negative symbol of division. Link
“Nudging” and manipulation of the masses again?
Are the Democrats HOPING the Republicans fall for this to actually turn and use it against them in 2012?
(Kind of in the words of) [T]he Dems saying: We are the “better” party; we have turned the party of NO into working with US for the betterment of America?
STILL THINK OBAMA HAS FREEDOM, LIBERTY and YOUR best interest at heart?
Is a man known by the company he keeps?
Is America being “hoodwinked” and “rope-a-doped” by the silver tongued “the One”?
Will Obama’s SOTU speech on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 will only be “filled” with what HE feels America wants to hear? Will America hear the mantra of Hope and Change again? Or will America hear his new 2012 campaign slogan of “together we thrive”(Tucson, Arizona theme)?
Obama is a shrewd tactician. He will feign a move to the Center, but his ideology is anything but that.
Carol Browner Leaving the White House – What’s Your Hurry?
January 24, 2011
From The Hill:
Carol Browner, the senior climate and energy policy adviser to President Obama, will resign soon, a White House official said Monday.
She will “stay on as long as necessary to ensure an orderly transition,” the official said.
Her departure comes as the chances have dimmed that the Congress will pass such legislation.Her time in the Obama administration was not without controversy.
She faced criticism from the GOP for her role in shaping the administration’s policy agenda. Republicans, noting that Browner was not subject to Senate confirmation, argued that Browner had too much control over Obama’s agenda.
Browner counts among her accomplishments an agreement among the federal government, California and industry groups to tighten fuel economy standards.
Browner, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency under President Clinton, worked behind the scenes during the last two years on passing comprehensive climate legislation.
The Hill just doesn’t do their job in reporting just how much Browner was “not without controversy. Perhaps there is some raw politics issue at work. In November three Senate Republicans wanted to bring Browner’s role in the falsification of a Department of the Interior position statement regarding Gulf oil drilling. Sen. James Inhoff that Browner may have had her hands in suppressing a EPA report in a 2009 climate change report. There’s more obviously on Browner. Michelle Malkin provides this 2008 piece detailing Browner’s ethically challenged career.
So another of Obama Czars is out. This one was a doozy. Browner is fully invested in the advancement of AGW and suffered a significant set back when Cap and Trade was turned aside by the Senate. Many have asserted that Browner – like Al Gore and some really smarmy UN frauds would have become enriched by the carbon trading scheme the legislation would have spawned.
Truth to Power: Climate Czarina Carol Browner….What Conflict of Interest? Previously tied to Al Gore.
Questions here SHOULD be:
1. Has Browner been offered a job at Jeffrey Immelt’s GE eco-magination headquarters?
2. Will Carol Browner go the way of Van Jones to the Center for American Progress?
3. Did Obama do this to look like he is making his own cuts to the now Republican majority House? Looking like he is giving to move to the Center when he actually is providing the EPA with more regulatory power?
HOW CONVENIENT A MOVE IS THIS BY THE SHREWD TACTICIAN (Obama) JUST BEFORE THE SOTU SPEECH?
We are not racists.
We are not violent.
We are just no longer silent.
