Fantasyland, US (Cartoon Press) – The list of celebrity fawners on the White House visitor logs is longer than Obama’s nose in Pinocchio mode, so the emergence of B list children’s morality character Chicken Little rising to the top of the President’s list of “go to” celebrities is turning some heads in Fantasyland.
But Oval Office insiders tell the Corner that the choice of Chicken Little and the President’s willingness to give equal billing should come as no surprise to anyone who knows their demagoguery.
Faced with Obama’s performance in the original “Sequester” released in 2011 making a comeback, and with it the painful facts and truths of the entire mess, the White House had no choice but to release “Sequester II: Beyond Reality” ahead of schedule.
In Tuesday’s release announcement and with a bevy of crisply pressed “emergency responders” perfectly staged behind him the President went for Oscar gold:
“Their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded…..FBI agents will be furloughed, federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go…..Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks………Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off, tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare for their kids……..Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care…
Changes, like this, not well thought through, not phased in properly………These cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy, they will ad hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls, this is not an abstraction, people will lose their jobs.
While we’ve had an “actor” President in the past, Obama set himself apart Tuesday as an act unto himself. No one, not even Nixon or Johnson, could have pulled off as many lies and perfectly placed predictions of Armageddon as Barrack Hussein Obama did in what will surely go down in history as if not one of his best, at least his most telling.
Telling as to just how low and how completely disgusting a politician can go when his only goal is his own agenda.
I don’t care how far left of the political center you sit, if you can watch a President of the United States behave in the manner that Barack Obama is behaving on the upcoming “sequester” and still support him, you are not, in any way, any shape, any form, an American.
A denier of facts, a minion for the cause, a “free stuff” parasite, a “hate the rich” ideologue, a “government is god” zealot, one or all you may be, but you are most certainly not an “American” by any definition true to her founding or her principles.
Harsh words, yes. And I mean every damn one of em.
And I mean them for one very simple reason: If you are a supporter of such behavior you are more dangerous to this nation and the freedoms of future generations than any foreign invader. What Al Qaeda can never topple from the outside, you are rotting out from the inside.
The historical record is indisputable. When a nation crosses the tipping point whereby it’s citizens demand more from others than they are willing to do for themselves, the result in inevitable: bankrupting of the national treasury, and nothing but pain and misery for the masses.
While you wrap yourselves in the mantra of “America is the richest nation on earth, that can never happen to us”, the economic realities you deny are fast approaching.
Yes, I’m angry. Howard Beale angry. And that anger is fed by one thing: The knowledge of knowing that we need not be the architects of our own destruction, that with just a reasonable amount of real “shared sacrifice” by all the economic calamity that will make the Great Depression look like the roaring 20′s could be stopped dead in its tracks.
Yet all that comes out of the Oval Office is fear, blame and outright lies. All happily propagated across the land by a minion media more worried about “access” than America herself.
If you don’t bother to take the time to look beyond the staged story (and November 6th shows that far too may don’t) there is a better than average chance that not only do you believe President Chicken Little, you don’t even know that this whole mess was of his making in the first place.
Yes, yes, I already know the chorus from the left: “Caldwell, you’re just letting your racism, hate and anger against Obama cloud your judgment”.
Well then, how about Bob Woodward of Watergate fame? Would you believe him?
In a column published in the Washington Post just yesterday Woodward relays:
….My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors ………Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.
Woodward lays out in his column not just the time-line of the White House’s “evolving” on accepting truth on the sequester but also exposes another Obama falsehood:
In fact, the final deal reached between Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2011 included an agreement that there would be no tax increases in the sequester in exchange for what the president was insisting on: an agreement that the nation’s debt ceiling would be increased for 18 months, so Obama would not have to go through another such negotiation in 2012, when he was running for reelection.
So when the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts……..
What? Obama move the goal posts? Dear Leader not being truthful with the American people?
Blasphemy you say!
Blasphemy yes, but only in the church of Obama. A such a large and powerful church it is.
But the danger for the country though is not the demagogue in the White House, it is not that his congregation is large, it is not even that their cups runneth over with their Kool Aid, it is that a complicit and irresponsible press is going along with it.
For once a citizenry allows apathy and ignorance to replace truth and principle, leading them to slaughter is easy.
As easy and standing in front of some crisp blue suits and proclaiming that a “cut” of $85 billion out of a budget of over $3 trillion will cause pestilence and death of biblical proportions.
I’d close with “God help us” but I imagine even he’s about had his fill watching so many fall for so much.
But then again, he might just decide to watch the reality version instead: (click here)
