  • Satire: Guatemalan President Blames US for Illegal Immigration from His Country

    Guatemalan President Otto Perez says the recent influx of illegal immigration to the US from Central American nations is America’s fault. “Look, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvadore are veritable cesspools,” Perez admitted. “Who wouldn’t want to leave? Compare this to welfare obtainable in the United States if you are poor and you have a strong motivation to try to get there. With President Obama’s open border policies its practically an invitation to make the arduous journey north.” As an alternative to mass migration, Perez suggested that “more generous foreign aid to our counties in the south could dampen the need for...

    The Democratic Party depends on voting blocs of less educated, less wealthy, more knee-jerk voters than the Republican Party, As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved. Other polls indicate far more unhappiness with Obama, but in general one must conclude that half the voters are idiots. He is an enormous failure domestically and with his foreign relations. In early July, a Quinnipiac University national poll found that Obama was regarded as “the worst president since World War II.” The only poll that counts will...

    Ebola Dose of Reality As the ISIS crisis is conveniently ignored right before the election, the main stream media is focusing on the next crisis, the Ebola spread and the schizophrenic response from the CDC. Meanwhile Congress is silent, waiting for guidance on what opinion they should form before they actually do the job they were elected to do, legislate to protect the best interests of the American people. The Congressional Research Service has issued a report on October 9, 2014, RL 33201, outlining the federal and state quarantine and isolation authority. Jared P.

    Hard to hang onto Big Boo Man Status when so many of your observers know that when it comes to Ebola, Obama long ago mounted his girly bike and rode off into the do-nothing sunset. That Americans aren’t caving in to widespread hysteria on the current Ebola outbreak scare is a major headache for propagandist president Barack Hussein Obama. BHO must have been in a real flap when he took to the microphones for his weekly radio address on Saturday: “This is a serious disease,” he said, “but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear, because that only makes...

    A rare appearance on the campaign trail by President Obama on Sunday night was marred by a steady stream of crowd members leaving early and even a yelling heckler. The president had shown up at the Democratic rally in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, to support Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, who is running for governor. With Obama's approval levels hovering around record lows, many candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with the president during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

Either way, Twitter and social media is serving as its own source of incubation and a visual breeding ground for rallying the replicants.

The United States does not remotely have an Ebola crisis, but it is beginning to have a crisis of confidence in the Obama administration's handling of the matter. President Obama made the right move early on when he offered $1 billion worth of aid to West Africa. Substantial aid is not only a necessary humanitarian response, but the smartest way to prevent a global health problem. Now the administration also must...

    Press Briefing by Press Clerk Earnest Jeste, 10/16/1348 Blondel the Minstrel Press Briefing Room 1:08 P.M. GMT JESTE: Good afternoon, everybody. Nice to see you all. Apologize for the delayed start today. Bramwell, do you want to get us started with questions? Q: Sure. Thank you. The King’s subjects are increasingly concerned about the spread of a malady that most call the Plague, which has killed multitudes in the Kingdom of Naples, the Holy Roman Empire and France. There are now cases popping up in our realm. Is the White Castle preparing a strategy to deal with the situation? JESTE:...

    Female voters powered President Barack Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney in 2012, as Democrats leaned heavily on social issues to rally single women and suburban moms to the polls. But with two weeks until Election Day, the president’s diminished standing with women is quickly becoming one of the biggest liabilities facing Democrats as they struggle to hang onto the Senate majority.

    Chalk it up to karma, fate or bad luck. Whatever you call it, the Ebola scare is proof that Bad Things Happen to Bad Presidents. The morphing of what is a single case into near panic is, according to medical experts, unwarranted. They point out that, so far, one person from Liberia died in a Texas hospital and two nurses who treated him got sick. Period, end of panic. In rational and medical terms, they may be right. But their calculations omit another factor. It’s the X factor. In this case, X stands for trust. President Obama has spent six...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Democratic candidates who run from President Obama in red states where he is unpopular are making a big mistake. Their holding Obama at arm's length deprives voters of a clear choice at the ballot box. Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is a great candidate for the U.S. Senate and is running a solid campaign. But she made a mistake when she refused to answer the question from the Louisville Courier-Journal about which presidential candidate she voted for in 2012. Grimes should have said she voted for President Obama and then gone on to explain her policy differences with...
  • Adios Democrats! Hispanics Bolting Party

    10/18/2014 9:00:41 PM PDT · by Abakumov · 71 replies
    It's looking like a tough offyear election for Democrats, with their Senate majority at serious risk and their chances of gaining House seats down toward zero. Every party has a bad offyear sometimes; Republicans did in 2006. Sooner or later they recover. But in the crosstabs of polls and in party strategists' moves I see evidence that one group Democrats have been counting on is moving away from them: Hispanics. Hispanics voted 71 percent for Barack Obama in 2012, 20 points above his national average of 51 percent. According to Gallup, Hispanics' latest Obama job approval has sunk to 44...
  • White House: Ron Klain's work handing out stimulus money good experience for Ebola czar

    The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential ^ | October 17, 2014 | Byron York
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)President Obama's choice of veteran Democratic politico Ron Klain to serve as Ebola czar stunned many Republicans. Their first objection is that Klain has no experience in public health or infectious diseases. But in a larger sense, GOP critics see Klain, a former chief of staff for Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, more as a political operative than a potential leader of the fight against Ebola. What qualifies Klain for the job, the formal title of which is Ebola Response Coordinator? First, the White House makes no claim of any expertise in health matters. Instead, officials point to...

    On Friday, the White House said its new Ebola Response Coordinator Ronald Klain was "not an Ebola expert" because the Obama administration wasn't looking for one. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked, "What does Ronald Klain know about Ebola?" "What we were looking for is not an ebola expert but rather an implementation expert, and that's exactly what Ron Klain is," Earnest responded, saying Klain's job as the "Ebola Response Coordinator" would be to "manage the implementation of our whole-of-government approach to Ebola."(continued)

    While dining at an upscale restaurant in New York last month, President Barack Obama said he had his credit card declined. “It turned out I guess I don’t use it enough,” Obama said while speaking to workers at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. “They thought there was some fraud going on.” The president added, “I guess I don’t use it enough, so they thought there was some fraud going on. Luckily, Michelle had hers.” The comments were made as the president announced new protections for debit cards used to deliver federal benefits, according to the BBC. Obama and the first...
