RACE

 Eric Holder makes George Wallace look like a moderate What a disgrace to the legal profession and the position of Attorney General.  Absolutely awful excuse for a human being.  I apologize that the link does not paint the man in his true colors: RACIST!!!

ELECTIONS

Two Terrible Weeks  About 30 to go

Obama on Thin Ice.  Not impossible for an incumbent to win with awful numbers like this, but an uphill slog.  Uphill at more than a 10% grade.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Brazil state visit

 Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff used a visit to the White House on Monday to complain about US monetary policy as she made her case for international action against currency “manipulation” directly to Barack Obama.

In a meeting that highlighted the occasionally uneasy relationship between the two countries despite their potential to be strong partners, Ms Rousseff said that excessive monetary expansion in the US and Europe was hampering growth in countries such as Brazil.

Unusual objectivity in this NYTimes account about ‘cordiality,’ but barely.  First clue: no State dinner, just a lunch.

TAXES

The Obama Rule  “Forget Warren Buffett, or whatever other political prop the White House wants to use for its tax agenda. This week the Administration officially endorsed what in essence is the Obama Rule: Taxes must be high simply to spread the wealth, never mind the impact on the economy or government revenue. It’s all about “fairness,” baby.”  It’s that simple: nothing less, nothing more.  An artful deconstruction of awful policy which, if somehow it made into law, would survive less than a day before Congress wrote in more complexities for tax avoidance.

What’s a ‘Fair’ Tax for the Mega Millionaires?  Not at all clear that polls support Congressional Democrats.  Then again, when do they ever consider whether their constituency supports their hair-brained ideas-witness Obamacare.

JUSTICE

Court: TSA, not Passengers, deserves Privacy.  TSA gets away this this?  If this survives, it’s hopeless.  See item, below.

 

 

 

 

TSA copping a feel

Another Reason to Abolish the Dept. of Homeland Security   “Environmental Justice Strategy.”  Are they kidding?  We’re paying for this nonsense/trips down the black hole?

OBAMA AND NOTHING BUT

 Obama Fraud: Oblivious to the Obvious  Proof for the non-technical of the forgery of Obama’s Birth Certificate.

American Narcissus The Vanity of Barack Obama  “Politicians as a class are particularly susceptible to mirror-gazing. But Obama’s vanity is overwhelming. It defines him, his politics, and his presidency.”  The author’s favorite from “Page 160 of The Audacity of Hope:

I find comfort in the fact that the longer I’m in politics the less nourishing popularity becomes, that a striving for power and rank and fame seems to betray a poverty of ambition, and that I am answerable mainly to the steady gaze of my own conscience.

I’ve commented often on this, over the months.  His speeches nauseate me, both in their void of truth and their style of pompousness and arrogance.  If his audience wasn’t all sycophants, they’d be retching all over.
