Obama and the Lying Liar

Unfortunately, my job kept me from watching Obama's first press conference in eight months, but I heard it was the same old duck and dodge. The media threw him softball questions and no follow ups. Their love affair with Obama is sickening and a betrayal. What really upset me was no one called Obama out after he said this:




"As I said before," he says. The problem with that is he never said before. One of the biggest questions regarding the cover-up is why did Susan Rice go on five Sunday talk shows and lie. Obama sticking his foot in his mouth was the first time ANYONE answered that question. Now we know: Susan Rice was sent by the White House. He says this as if he's been so forthcoming about Benghazi, but he clams up and dodges the question (or lies) whenever someone brings up the subject. Senators and Congressmen have been trying to get the truth out of Obama since it happened and he's been hiding.

Later he says, "But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous." If Susan Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi then why the hell did they send her? She's the ambassador to the United Nations, not Libya. We don't need to see her face, ever. She doesn't have anything to do with the security failures, or anything Benghazi related, but they threw her into the middle of the situation anyway. Why? "Based on intelligence that she had received," he says, but we know that's bullshit. We know that they knew from the jump that it was an organized terrorist attack and not a spontaneous demonstration. We know that they knew within 48 hours that it was Al Qaeda related. And if the CIA told her it was because of the video despite what they knew the day of and the day after, then they lied to her because....? So we have new questions:
  1. Why did the Barack Obama send her to lie to the American people?
  2. How many people said "No!" before they got to her?
He then accuses the GOP of "going after" Rice because she's an easy target and they should go after him instead. What a manipulative douchebag. Is Susan Rice so incompetent or so desperate for a cabinet position she can't think for herself or ask her own questions? Is she a robot? An invalid who can't speak for herself but needs Big Daddy Obama to throw weak punches for her? I understand accountability is a hard concept for him to grasp, since he doesn't know how to take responsibility for his own actions, but let's get serious. The GOP has been blaming Obama for this since he started pushing the video, so I'm not sure what Jupiter-sized rock he's been living under. Either way, Susan Rice lied. She went on FIVE Sunday talk shows and lied to the American people; she doesn't get a pass for that. Truthfully, I want her head for it. I don't appreciate her trying to play me for a fool. If she knocked on my front door, I would call her a liar to her face. Any criticism she gets is not only well-deserved, but it's all Obama's fault. He did this to her, not Senator Graham and not Senator McCain. He sent her out into the world to deliver a lie hoping the American people would buy it. He put a target on her back and she wants to represent him as Secretary of State? What kind of backwards battered wife syndrome hot mess is this?

In the middle of his ducking and dodging, Obama says this:
"And you know, we’re after an election now. I think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in Benghazi, and I’m happy to cooperate in any ways that Congress wants."
Everything you need to know about Obama is in those two sentences, and you're a lost cause if you don't get it. We have been talking about Susan Rice for months, asking the hard questions and Democrats wanted to pretend the situation didn't exist. All of sudden, Democrats want to stand up for her, pull the race card in her defense? A few months ago they were telling us to stop blaming Obama and blame everyone else, now he's leading the call the take it out on him. They can't have it both ways. Here's the truth: Our media is crap. Fox News is the only news organization brave enough to touch the Benghazi monster, and we know the closest Obama will ever get to Fox News is Ed Henry of the White House Press Corps. No one will go after Obama except congress and he's too busy blaming all of his problems on them. He says he'll be happy to have the Benghazi discussion, and he's lying. Congress has been trying to have that conversation and he's been tight lipped. The media will do whatever he wants. Congress isn't scared of him.

The Election Hangover

It's finally over and the results suck. Another four years of Obama is not what we wanted, but that's what we got. We can cry, grieve, get angry, or scream. When we're done with all of that we need to figure out how to keep moving. Elections are a strange two-sided coin. On one side it's all about us, the voters. It's our chance to control what happens in Washington, control our own destiny as Americans. On the other side is our powerlessness. It's the one time every four years where we feel like our voice doesn't matter and we don't know what to do. It's agonizing and stressful, and personally, despite the results, I'm glad it's over. I'm not mad about Obama winning, I'm over that. I'm mad about people's conservative post-election blues.

You can't give up on America and love America at the same time. Every empire is destined to end, and our time might be coming sooner than we had hoped, but that's not reason enough to give up. Our founding fathers didn't think we'd last fifty years, but we've been going strong for over two hundred. Our country was started with a heart-felt fight and if it must end, then it shouldn't end any other way. Mark my words, I will keep fighting for this country until that trumpet calls and even then I won't give up hope.

So how do we keep moving? First, we must recognize that Barack Obama doesn't get a third term. As much as he enjoys walking all over our Constitution nobody in their right mind is going to let him change it. On January 20, 2017, Barack Obama is done and I will throw a party. Cynical the thought may be, but we need something to look forward to. Second, we have got to learn from our mistakes. I love Mitt Romney and I am grateful to him and I stand behind him 100%, but when are we going to learn that picking a moderate gets us nowhere? We picked Mitt Romney not because he was the best man for the job, though I believe he was. We picked him because we believed he had the best chance to beat Obama. That's not enough. The Tea Party owned the 2010 midterm election and it's time to embrace them. Third, the excuses need to stop. Our Republican Party was founded out of the abolition movement. We need to go back to our roots and we need to invade the Democrat plantation because sitting back and watching the liberals destroy the black and Hispanic communities is STUPID. Fourth, we need to own our message. We need to find a better way to present our message and make it stick. Last but not least, we need to destroy the mainstream media. They have betrayed us and betrayed the men and women who died so we could have freedom of the press, and I'll be damned if I'll allow them to cover Obama's ass for another four years. We need to have our Andrew Breitbart moment and declare WAR.

In two years, we're going to go through this all over again with the 2014 midterm elections. We took our eyes off the Senate prize this time, but that's not happening again. Twenty Democrat seats are up for grabs and we need to make them ours. While we're thinking about 2014 we need to think about our prospects for 2016, if only to keep our heads up. More than likely, we're going to hit another recession. Obama has nothing to lose and his agenda is more of the same and Obamacare inevitably will kill jobs. It's going to be a rough four years, and there's nothing wrong with acknowledging that and being fearful of the future, but we're Americans damnit. We will get through it. If we allow ourselves to be defeated then we may as well surrender our country and all we've worked hard to build. Relinquishing our rights, values, and strengths as Americans will destroy this country before Obama will.

My message to my fellow conservatives is this: Grieve if you must, but don't give up! Never give up.

And So It Begins...

Unfortunately, we're stuck with Obama for another four year and it's sad and I'll post about that later, but let's talk about the next four years. What's going to happen the next four years? What's Obama's plan besides raise taxes on rich people, which is a colossally bad idea. He wants to hire more teachers, which is a good aspiration, but how? With what money? With the extra taxes from the rich people who are supposed to be paying off our debt? Our country is broke and spending money like it rains from heaven, then add on Obamacare which is a money sucker and a job killer. Our country is spiraling, our economy is growing, but that growth is slowing down. No one knows what 2013 is going to look like. Congress could come to some sort of compromise or we'll be back in a recession. This uncertainty is messing with people's confidence, so people are fixing the roof before it rains.

Stocks Slump As Market Reacts To Obama Win, Draghi's Germany Warning

Remember that nice rally in the stock market that started in September? Well, Wednesday’s plunge has essentially wiped out the entire thing.

The major averages were down more than 2% in afternoon trading as the market surrendered its Election Day rally and backtracked to late August levels. With about two and a half hours  until the closing bell, the Dow Jones industrial average was 275 points lower at 12,971, the S&P 500 was off 29 points at 1,400 and the NASDAQ was down 67 points to 2,944.
I'm not well versed in the Stock Market, but I know enough to know these numbers reflect investor and consumer confidence. The stock market reaction the day after an election isn't a crystal ball, but it can be very telling.

Boeing shakes up defense business, cuts management jobs

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co said on Wednesday it will restructure its defense, space and security business and cut 30 percent of management jobs from 2010 levels as part of a broad cost-cutting drive.

Boeing, the Pentagon's second-largest supplier, said it also will close some facilities in California and consolidate several business units in an effort to trim $1.6 billion in costs by the end of 2015, on top of $2.2 billion in reductions achieved since 2010.

Vegas Employer: Obama Won, So I Fired 22 Employees

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner."
A woman I follow on twitter will be laying off 10 employees so she can meet that 50 employee exemption in Obamacare. I've gotten tweets from small business owners who are worried what 2013 will look like for them, who wanted to expand and can't. I've heard from people who are afraid their hours are going to be cut or they know their hours are going to be cut. People shouldn't have to welcome the New Year in the unemployment line.

Election Day Challenge

This is it. Today's the day our hard work pays off or we find out it wasn't enough. If you have to call in, do it. If you have to miss a few classes, do it. No car? Ask a neighbor, friend, or family member. Don't know where your polling place is or the hours? Call your local board of elections or look online. This election is too important for any excuse.

I have a challenge for you. Whether you voted today or you voted early, I dare you to change your facebook and/or twitter page to this picture. Don't be ashamed, regardless of the outcome. Be proud of your vote, because it matters.


Let's pray for America today!

IN CHAAAAINS!

No one wants to call a child ignorant or stupid; I don't want to go there, so I'll call his father ignorant and stupid. Someone had to teach him this, right? Nine-year-old Brandon attended a Michelle Obama rally and was asked by a reporter why he wanted Obama to win, and this was his answer:


I've heard nearly my whole life that Republicans will send blacks back to slavery in one colorful way or another, but I can't remember the first time I heard someone say it seriously this campaign. You have to wonder if Joe Biden started this with his CHAAAINS remark. He and democrats believe their supporters are dumb enough to buy it, so it's no surprise he would say it in the first place. I don't know what to say to this kind of ignorance or fear-mongering or how would I tell a child his father is wrong. Has he not learned about the 13th Amendment? Section 1 of said amendment says:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
You have to be dumber than dumb to honestly believe Mitt Romney or any republican is going to bypass, repeal, or ignore the 13th Amendment and send black people back to the fields. You have to be sick and twisted to teach a child that. Black people would still be in chains if it weren't for republicans. Black people would still be under Jim Crow if it were for republicans. The parties "switching" is a baseless myth, nothing has changed. Democrats still advocate for slavery, we just call it Welfare and Affirmative Action now. Black people can't achieve anything without a lift from the white hand of pity, and black people can't survive life without government being their daddy. Modern day slavery is government dependency and an illogical loyalty to the Democrat Party, despite the empty promises and empty rhetoric. Slaves made fun of other slaves who talked about running away, and that hasn't changed. Why do black liberals call black conservatives sell outs? Because a lot of black liberals believe, whether they know it or not, they belong to the Democrat Party.

The democrats value the black vote because it keeps them in power, but they take the black community for granted. They can promise the world and back and not deliver because they know blacks will vote for them anyway. However, this election is different. Democrats are worried not that blacks will vote for Romney, but that they won't show up to the polls. Hence the fear-mongering with slavery and Romney wanting to take away food stamps and other entitlements. Truthfully, blacks will continue to allow the democrats to own them as long as Black Americans keep saying, "What are you gonna do for me!?"

Vote For Vagina!

Just watch.



I couldn't make this up on my best day, and no, the Vagina2012 website isn't porn. I checked. If this is the liberal mindset, they can keep it. I'm more than happy to live a life where my entire world doesn't revolve around my vagina. More people in America are pro-life and more people support laws that restrict abortions, so where did this thinking come from? Who told this lady and countless liberals that every woman cares about abortion or birth control or their sex life? What happened to the old feminist movement where women wanted the right to vote, the right to work alongside men, the right to make the same amount of money as a man, the right to press charges against her husband if he beats her? That movement of independence and dignity has been replaced with this clown foolery and people are buying it. This isn't advancing women's rights. This makes women seem unworthy of rights, immature and unable to handle the freedom we've worked so hard for.

She's So Hood!

One more day to go until this heated and devastatingly crucial election is over . After tomorrow we'll either have to look at Obama's face for four more years or we'll breathe a sigh of relief. The last day is sometimes worse than election day because some of us are at work wondering if we have enough time to do something, and some of us have the day off and we're wondering if we're using our time wisely. It's a lot on our nerves and our stomachs. Don't give up. We have until 7pm tomorrow!

In the middle of the heated exchanges, I'm offering everyone a good laugh. Democrat or Republican, I think everyone can agree that Paul Ryan has the cutest kids and his daughter, Liza, is hilarious. While on the campaign trail, Liza posed for a picture, showing her support for her dad.

Why Romney?

Over the last few days I've been getting the same tired questions over and over again on twitter. Why are you voting for Romney? How can you vote for Romney as an African-American woman? What's wrong with you? Blah blah blah? Most of the questions I ignore because they're stupid questions and I'm tired of repeating myself, so I'm just going to lay it out here. Here is my official endorsement for Mitt Romney to answer those tireless questions:

Sometime during my first semester of college when I was 18, I registered to vote and I registered as a Democrat. Looking back, I don't know why. I was pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and I didn't like Bush. I had heard the "Republicans don't like black people" and "Republicans only want to help the rich" a thousand times, so I guess I had bought into it. A few months later, the first Sunday of April 2006, I went from an atheist to a baby Christian. I spent that summer learning how to pray, study the word, evangelize, and all that fun stuff all the while trying to hang on to my pro-choice and pro-gay marriage views, even though I knew it wasn't quite right. I don't remember what was said or what happened, but sometime during the second semester of my sophomore year, my heart did a one-eighty and I wasn't so liberal anymore.

My conversion to conservatism had more to with Christ than policy, the rest just came with research and common sense. 2008 came around and it was time to make a choice. Like most Evangelical Christians, I was drawn to Huckabee, but that didn't work out. John McCain wasn't my pick and I wasn't enthusiastic about him, but I voted. I didn't vote for Obama because I preferred smaller government and his "spread the wealth around" comment to Joe the Plumber scared me. I didn't like his pitch for universal health care, and, frankly, I wasn't buying a word he said. There was something about the "Hope and Change" rhetoric that wasn't sitting well with me. I didn't like how he supporters viewed him. Kids were singing about him like he was Jesus, someone actually called him "The Black Jesus," and my mom told me his first name was in the Bible...like that meant something. The hero worship made me sick. Not voting for the black man in 2008 was something I had to deal with, but the more Obama talked, the easier it got.

Nevertheless, Obama was elected and I dealt with it. I gave Obama the benefit of a doubt and kept a positive outlook, which was hard. I kept my head up about the stimulus, and was disappointed. I kept my head up about Obamacare, until I started to learn what was in it. I was grateful he gave the order to kill Osama Bin Laden, until he put the lives of those Navy SEALs in danger. I didn't like him inserting himself into the Fast and Furious scandal, nor did I like him going around congress to give illegal aliens amnesty (but it's not amnesty, or whatever). Having had a roommate who was on food stamps, I understand why the work requirement is important, so the waiver pissed me off. Lastly, I was ready to rally around him after what happened in Benghazi, but was pissed when he started blaming the video. Then I was really pissed off when everyone in his administration started lying about it. Let's not forget the $16 trillion debt and high unemployment, and don't tell me it's Bush's fault. Obama didn't inherit a bad situation. He asked for it, campaigned for it, and paid for it. It's his responsibility now and he's been a terrible steward.
So why Romney? Romney was not my pick, not in 2008 and not this time around. I thought he was too moderate, and I still think he is. I wasn't excited about any of them. I wanted to take pieces of Herman Cain, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum and make my own candidate, or force Allen West or Paul Ryan to run. What it came down to was one question: Did I want another four years of Obama? When it came time for North Carolina's primary, I voted for Mitt Romney because I thought he had the best chance of beating him. I wasn't enthused or all that happy about our Republican nominee, but I wanted Obama gone and that was good enough for me. It wasn't until he picked Paul Ryan as his running mate that I started to get excited about the election. Paul Ryan is an open book. There's no trickery or "man behind the curtain" with him. He is who he says he is and I know where he stands. What Romney's decision said to me was that he was serious about the economy and getting it back on track. Standing side by side, they looked like a father and son running a successful company. I was officially sold on Romney/Ryan, not just as a way to get Obama out of the way, but team to lead America back to our founding principles.

Why am I voting for Romney? Five reasons:
  1. He's not Obama, first and foremost. Obama has not given me a reason to give him a second term and what he's done so far, and his lack of second term plan, shows we'll just get more of the same stagnant mediocre hot economic mess we've been experiencing these last four years. "Four years isn't enough time..." is a crackhead excuse. Reagan did it, so it can be done. Obama promised he'd do it. He promised he'd cut the deficit in half and he promised unemployment would be around 5.4% by this time. He could have done it in four years, he just put all the wrong policies in place. He's not proposing anything new or better, so he's gotta go. Obama being black is a biological truth and an observation; it's not a reason to vote for him.
  2. I don't like Obamacare. I'm too damn old to be on my mother's health insurance and if I can't afford it, then I can't afford it. That's my problem. It's caused her premiums to go up and it's taken more out of her paycheck. It's not worth it. Obama's goal was to lower the cost of health insurance and he ended up doing the exact opposite. In 2013 and 2014, Obamacare will cost people jobs, hours, and wages. For some, it will cause prices for food, clothing, and other goods to go up. We can't afford that right now. In a perfect world - or a communist country - Obamacare is a great idea. Right now, it's too expensive.
  3. Romney has experience in the private sector and in government. We need someone who not only understands business, but someone who understands the relationship between state and federal governments. Better yet, we need someone who has a track record of creating jobs and working in a bipartisan environment. Obama's disdain for underground energy has cost us jobs and money. I want that keystone pipeline, no matter what Hollywood says, and I want people in those coal mines doing whatever it is they do in coal mines. I want us to invest in natural gas, because relying on the middle east isn't going to work forever.
  4. America doesn't have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. Spending money without a budget is reckless, and I know this from personal experience. We need to reform our entitlement programs, look into programs where we're wasting money or spending too much, and yes, we need to defund Planned Parenthood. Any business that can spend millions of dollars campaigning for Obama doesn't need federal funding. Plus, Mitt Romney believes in peace through strength and I'm counting on him not to give our military the very best because they deserve it!
  5. Abortion. I'm pro-life without exceptions and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's platform is pro-life with exceptions, which bugs me, but whatever. What makes me happy is when Mitt Romney said he won't pursue any "abortion-related legislation." Many liberals call it a flip-flop, but conservatives know better. Abortion should be a states issues, which is why I want Roe v. Wade overturned.
That's not the sum of all my reasons, but those reasons are what is most important to me. Another question I get, mainly from white conservatives, is why be so vocal when I get so much hate. Truthfully, it doesn't bother me. I'm not that strong or brave or courageous, I've just learned the hard way that no one's opinion but God's matters. Also, I'm very opinionated and I've been told I have a very strong sense of self. It's not in my nature to shut up. The color of his skin, or my skin, or what's between my legs is a non-issue. I want a President who is going to bring America together, not divide it. I want a President who knows I want a good job, not birth control or an abortion. How can I as a black woman vote for Mitt Romney, the white Republican man? The answer is values. God and Country. Simple as that.

Bigger, Better America

If you missed the Ohio Mega Rally on Friday, then you missed something special and I encourage you to find videos online. Senators, congressmen, governors, candidates and others from across the country made their way to that 30,000 crowd. When they all assembled on stage before Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan's speeches I thought to myself, "Man what a team!" It got me pumped up and excited, not just for Tuesday but for January. No more crap leadership, no more shifting blame. Best of all, no media ducking and covering for a mediocre president. I'm more than ready to see Obama go. Let's get this done, America!

Revenge or Love of Country

Just the other day, a group of Obama supporters at a rally of his in Ohio started booing over something Romney related and Obama said, "Dont' boo, vote. Voting is the best revenge." Revenge for what? What has Romney done? It's Obama who has presided over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression. He's the one who promised he could do it four years and he couldn't deliver, then had the nerve say he knew it would take more than four years. Obama can't stay away from division and warfare, but thank God Mitt Romney is the bigger road and took the high road.



It's a clear choice: Are you bitter and angry or do you love your country and want what's best for America? It's time for a real change.

Women Conceived in Rape Speak Out

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."
Psalm 127:3 (ESV)
 
 
I've said it many times, I am pro-life and I don't believe in exceptions. I don't believe a child conceived in love is any different than a child conceived in rape. They are both children made by God and he has a hope and future for them and he loves them. I think we do rape victims a great disservice when we tell them they shouldn't carry their rapist's child or they shouldn't have to look at constant reminder. I do believe God can make something good out of a bad situation, and children are a good thing, and rape victims have a God-given right to hear that. Women deserve help and support, not abortion; and babies deserve life.

Planned Paradox



Newsflash Libnuts: The "War on Women" meme isn't working. But no one pushes a failed idea better than a liberal, so what can you expect. This ad, if you're too disgusted to watch, features celebrities wearing pink "Yes We Plan" t-shirts supporting Planned Parenthood and trying to convince us through Obama's words that he cares about women. This is the Planned Parenthood who abuses medicaid in Texas, leaves women to bleed to death on their "operating" tables in Illinois, and aborts baby girls nationwide.

Romney has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood when he's elected and liberals love to use this to convince me he hates women. First off, I'm pro-life and I hate Planned Parenthood and any abortion provider. I don't care if they give cupcakes to homeless children, if they provide abortions I want them shut down. No amount of "good" they do can make me forget they use dead babies as their cash cow. I'm all for Planned Parenthood losing funding and I'm all for legal measures that would help women make a more informed decision. What aggravates me about this ad is the celebrities, people who claim they don't forget where they came from, but really have no idea what it's like to be a normal poor American. They work in an industry that is virtually unaffected by a recession or depression, so why would I expect them to understand what I go through or what anyone goes through. Honestly, it's insulting.

What Planned Parenthood gets in federal or state funding is minuscule compared to what they get through profit and private donations, so if you honestly think Planned Parenthood won't survive without government funding, then you're drinking the kool-aid. Planned Parenthood isn't fighting to keep their funding because they need it. They're fighting because they feel they are entitled to it, which makes them perfect Obama voters. You can't convince me a man who says women should make their own healthcare decisions yet pushes Obamacare and wants to force religious institutions to pay for their sex life cares about women. You can't convince me a man who thinks women are the sum of their reproductive organs cares about women. You can't convince me Planned Parenthood needs federal funding when they spend $12 million dollars campaigning for Barack Obama.

Secretary of Business?

“We should have one Secretary of Business, instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like giving loans to SBA or helping companies with exports.”
Is this another piece of Obama's scattered second term jigsaw puzzle plan, a Secretary of Business instead of nine different departments? Nine different departments can be a bit messy and irritating, but they are indicative of our government structure - three branches of government, three different levels of government. Our government is designed to keep one person from having complete control of the country, and this is not by accident or without purpose (hence the word "designed"). What this country doesn't need is another unelected bureaucrat pushing Obama's agenda. Plus, the idea of a Secretary of Business takes the free out of "free market enterprise." As a cocky rapper once said, "No one man should have all that power."

And what is Obama going to do with a Secretary of Business? His jobs council hasn't met since the beginning of the year and he doesn't listen to the debt commission, so why would we think he'd work well with a Secretary of Business? Obama does not like to listen unless he's being told what he wants to hear, nor does he like to take responsibility for his actions. Appointing a Secretary of Business would be a way to absolve him of any blame or responsibility if something stupid were to happen. And if this is his best idea for the next four years, then why vote for him? You have a guy who's so aloof about business he wants to find another guy to fix it and another guy who owned a successful business. It's a no-brainer.
