FDF World News Roundup 10-8
About as understated as a rattrap in a Chinese Restaurant
By Mack Rights
I was listening to the radio today, and Rush Limbaugh started a commercial by saying: “You’re a homo ner…” I immediately wondered, “Why are you calling me a fag Rush? And what’s a ner?” He was actually calling me a “homeowner,” and that just proves that Rush is almost always right. I am a homeowner. Now don’t get your knickers in twist candy striper. It’s not like I said that outside a gay bar. I just thought it, and, as far as I know, thought crimes aren’t illegal yet. But they will be if the Democrats get their wish. Their PC-codes are just their way of getting you to feel guilty about thinking like a human- so you’ll think more like they do.
This is big, backyard campers. The GAI report on Obama’s fundraising is out. You can read the whole 108-page report here, or you can catch a summary here or here. Here’s the scoop though. In 2008, Obama raised boatloads of money in small un-reportable donations that came in as odd dollar amounts like $34.26. People don’t donate money like that. We, who understood where those numbers came from, pointed out that they were foreign donations in foreign currencies being converted to dollar amounts a long time ago. No one cared though. This time, not so much. It turns out that there’s a lot of funny stuff going on. In fact, the site Obama.com is owned by an Obama money bundler who lives in China and is connected with the godless puppy-eaters in the highest echelons of their communist government. The site funnels folks to the campaign donation page, and most of its traffic comes from foreign sources. At the same time, nearly 90 some-odd percent of the nearly $200 million that the Obama campaign raised last month is unreported because it came in as dollar amounts below $200 so it doesn’t have to be reported. In other words, Obama is getting funds from foreign sources, and this means that there are foreign influences on our international policy. Granted, even Republicans are in danger of getting busted for foreign donations, but none of them are presently President and in charge of what we do with our military. So that’s the deal. And it’s a big one.
This is great. Obama gave $90 billion of taxpayer dollars to his supporters in the solar- and wind-energy rackets. Most of these companies went bankrupt and the donated dollars disappeared into invisible overseas accounts- one must presume. We’re talking billions and billions of dollars into companies that are now bankrupt. One of the main complaints was that the Chinese were producing solar panels too cheaply. Well guess what, the Chinese ramped up their manufacturing so much that the supply of solar panels is so high that the demand is nonexistent. The low pricing is causing even these Chinese companies to go bankrupt. Now, the Chinese government- the same one funneling money to the Obama administration- is asking banks (with a gun of course) to stop lending money to the weaker companies so they’ll go bankrupt. But the banks aren’t excited about losing their original dollars so they’re willing to lend more money so these bankrupt companies can pay debt service on their previous loans. Sound familiar? Here’s the truth about command economies. Their communist planners pretend that the laws of supply and demand can be broken. In this respect, that little corner hopper in the ghetto selling dime bags has a better understanding of economics than the communists that run these countries. And since Obama’s no different in his understanding of economics, easily apparent for everyone to see in last week’s debate, maybe Obama should get a lesson in economics from the city-corner drug pushers. They may not know how to read after their short stint in the public school system, but at least they understand supply and demand.
Michael Walsh has a piece on Washington’s shame and Mitt Romney’s opportunity. Read it please.
This is a must-read article. Lara Logan of CBS News and 60 Minutes was at a gathering in Chicago of about 1,100 “influentials from government, politics, media and the legal and corporate arenas.” If you will remember, she was the news reporter that was gang-raped by Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood peeps on the Egyptian street back when he ignited the Islamist takeover of the Middle East called the “Arab Spring.” This is a report from Laura Washington who was there and was admittedly spooked by Lara Logan’s report. I’ll excerpt a few selections, but read the whole thing:
Eleven years later, “they” still hate us, now more than ever, Logan told the crowd. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. They’re coming back.
“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated . . .” Logan declared in her native South African accent.
The lie is that America’s military might has tamed the Taliban.
“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan said. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,” who claim “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,” she added sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense!”
Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports.
Again, read the whole thing. It’s bad, and the media is lying to us to protect their beloved boy President Messiah In His Own Mind.
An economist cited by the Obamites to claim Romney doesn’t get it is claiming that the Obamites misunderstand the point of his study. Harvey Rosen wrote the Weekly Standard:
I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work. It might be that they assume that Governor Romney wants to keep the taxes from the Affordable Care Act in place, despite the fact that the Governor has called for its complete repeal. The main conclusion of my study is that under plausible assumptions, a proposal along the lines suggested by Governor Romney can both be revenue neutral and keep the net tax burden on taxpayers with incomes above $200,000 about the same. That is, an increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral.
If one’s understanding of economics is as weak as that of a liberal like Obama, one has to make stuff up so that he doesn’t sound like the moron he’d have to be if he actually believed the stuff he was saying. But of course, I don’t necessarily believe that Obama believes what he says or even wants to believe it. It think he sees an opportunity to make his friends rich by raiding the quickly bankrupting public treasury as it drifts off towards collapse. Like the Oligarchs after the fall of Russia, these rich liberals are building vast piles of wealth by taking these taxpayer dollars and hiding them in other countries. There’s no question about it. Obama is borrowing close to $1.5 trillion a year, and the economy is getting worse and worse. If this supposed Keynesian Demand-side economics was going to work, wouldn’t blowing $6 trillion in borrowed dollars have made some sort of dent into the vast swaths of this nation that can’t find a job?
Not sure if this is real, but if it is, I wouldn’t be surprised. Soldiers are being ordered not to shoot at Taliban members out planting mines. It might upset the locals I guess. Meanwhile, our boys are getting killed by the Taliban, we’re training them, and they’re killing us. Good foreign policy Obama.
Mila Kunis of That 70’s Show, is Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman.” For that, she got half-naked, posed on Esquire and let loose with some of her Hollywood thoughts:
“The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” Kunis exclaims. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?”
I really don’t need to say much about that. She says all that needs to be said.
However, not all of Hollywood is as perpetually vapid as Mila Kunis. Stacey Dash, a black actress from the movie “Clueless” has jumped off Obama’s ship. She’s now backing Romney, and now the liberal Twitter minions are saying she’s not “black enough.” I guess that’s as solid an argument you’ll get from a liberal- you’re not black enough so your opinion doesn’t matter. Good one liberal. I’ll shut up now.
Just kidding. Below is an updated chart on unemployment. It was the Obama administration’s excuse to pass their so-called Recovery Plan. It shows their projected unemployment rates with the plan and without the plan. Obviously, their projected unemployment rate with the plan is better than without, but now Jim Pethokoukis has added in the actual rates, and low and behold, they’re much worse than their previous projections of unemployment if they had not passed the recovery plan. Recovery Plan my butt. The whole thing was just an excuse to jack up the jobless rate and get everyone hooked on the government dole so they’ll vote for Democrats because the mean old Republicans will supposedly take away your benefits. Read it and weep free folks. Freedom slowly drifts away when you start trading government mandates for government benefits. Benefits come with strings attached, and free men aren’t attached to strings.
