Stock markets and consumer confidence have fallen to new lows in June in reflection of a massive lack of growth in jobs in the private sector. The Conference Board just reported that consumer attitudes dropped from 62.7 in May to 52.9 in June. Many are speculating now that we are in the beginnings of a depression and certainly not recovering in housing, jobs and markets.
While the markets and economy is bucking widely to the out-of-control spending and lack of leadership with the Obama administration and this congress, we see oil splashing up on Gulf shores, another reflection of profoundly incompetent leadership and intervention by Obama.
With the oil spill disaster and economy we see Obama’s worldview and priorities which lead and reflect all his responses and strategies. With him, every disaster and national challenge has to be manipulated and submit to his transforming passion of Marxist/socialism, accumulation of power and control.
Just look at the Gulf disaster Obama blender or reality.
The explosion happened in April. Obama responded and went to the Gulf 12 days later. Governor Bobby Jindal and a host of other concerned leadership called for immediate help. Jindal requested that the Government build emergency berms to block the oil from flooding the Louisiana beaches. The Obama blender response was to have an Environmental impact study done. They wanted to see what the Internet had to say.
Thirteen countries offered state-of-the-art equipment and money help. The Obama blender said no, hiding behind the Jones act, which could have easily been set aside as Bush did with Katrina. This was another sham of leadership by this President.

Obama Wants The Oil Spill Crisis To Get Worse

Government rejected international assistance for months but only accept it now when hurricanes are about to hit the Gulf

Why has President Obama waited over two months into the BP oil spill crisis before accepting offers of international assistance that were there from the very start, seemingly waiting for hurricanes to hit the region which will only make the crisis worse?
Obama’s acceptance of international help is too little, too late – over two months late to be exact.
We now learn that he is starting the process of allowing international help, a process that will take weeks or months and will likely be strangled and restricted by the EPA anyway.
Foreign ships have been prevented from helping  in the clean up process. Every effort has been made to stop outside involvement in the situation and almost everything we learn about the crisis comes directly from BP or the federal government. This strictly enforced cover-up shows that authorities are more concerned about protecting their information lock down than actually cleaning up the spill.
Obama initially blocked international help, citing the Jones Act, which forbids foreign ships from operating between U.S. ports, and thereby preventing the use of sophisticated technology which foreign firms insist could have sealed the leak.

“No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”
– George S. Patton
“But the greatest insult to our troops in the field, and to the officers who lead them, may be a new battlefield medal designed by the Obama team. It is called the Courageous Restraint Medal and is awarded to soldiers and marines who demonstrate uncommon restraint in combat by not firing their weapons even when they feel threatened by the enemy. Would we be surprised to learn that the preponderance of these medals were awarded posthumously? McChrystal must have found that to be an insanity.”
– Paul Hollrah, The General and the Community Organizer
The idea for a Courageous Restraint Medal reportedly came from British Maj. Gen. Nick Carter. It apparently never progressed beyond the conceptual state. It was however described by a spokesman for Gen. McChrystal as an “idea consistent with our approach…”
We can rightly admire the hardy professional discipline of men and women who dutifully follow rules of engagement that wantonly endanger their lives. But like the stirring but infamous “Charge of the Light Brigade” the spectacle of their sacrifice inspires nothing but angry contempt for the military and civilian authorities incompetent or callous enough to require that they throw their lives away. What a far cry from the strategic clarity with which WWII’s General Patton inspired his troops. It was clear that for him the objective is not to lose their lives, but to gain the victory that secures our just and peaceful way of life.

The gay soldiers arrested outside the White House protesting “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will annouce today that they’re demanding that President Obama testify in their trial on minor civil disobedience charges.
Their novel argument: Obama himself called on gay rights advocates to pressure him, so they were just following orders.
“Don’t Ask” has energized gay rights activists frustrated with the White House’s deliberate pace, even as Democratic leaders are frustrated with continued protests, as repeal is on track for next year.
The subpoena in the defense of Lieutenant Dan Choi and Captain James Pietrangelo’s
As the advisory puts it,
The subpoena seeks to compel the testimony of President Barack Obama who has, on several occasions as President and Commander in Chief (and previously as a Senator and Presidential Candidate) called on the LGBT community to “pressure” him to change the DADT law and policy, thus allowing gay service members to serve their country openly and honorably.
The subpoena of the President is necessary for the defense to prove that Defendants were following and obeying lawful orders or directives by their President and Commander in Chief, and were therefore under an obligation and authority to act as they did in order to pressure him – in a non-violent, visible way – on this important public issue. In addition, these statements support the contention that Defendants were acting out of necessity, in order to prevent discrimination and greater harm to gay service members now serving.
Why can’t we demand Obama’s resignation?

Please forgive the vanity post- I know you all hate them. But I am driven to ask this question- WHy cannot the people demand the resignation of this totallly incompetent man? And not just him- ALL his appointees and czars, AND his SC appointees, as well.
In 1973, the media, backed by a handful of leftist activists, drove Nixon from office- who had been elected in a landslide that the demonRATs can only dream of. The majority of the people did not want this to happen, but it happened anyway. Now it is the PEOPLE who want this man and his minions gone, but WE can’t do what THEY did? I know, I know- there are petitions out there and I have signed a few. But I am talking a GROUNDSWELL- I’m talking a major concentrated effort by the people. Someone MUST know how to start this. If the lefties can do it, then certainly those with a brain can.

General McChrystal and his top officers are not simple-minded, knuckle-dragging brutes. To the contrary, they are intelligent, thoughtful, highly educated, patriots… graduates of West Point and other fine universities… who are dedicated to duty, honor, and country. To think that such men would be so careless as to speak unflatteringly of Obama, Biden, and other top administration figures, in the presence of a reporter for a notoriously left wing publication, defies logic… at the very least. To think that men who are trained to be careful and deliberate in everything they do, could do something so careless and so unguarded is simply beyond comprehension.
I would argue that McChrystal and his aides knew exactly what they were doing. …
But what is now lost in all of the hand-wringing and speculation is the fact that McChrystal and his people have succeeded in doing exactly what they set out to do. They wanted to plant the seed in the minds of the American people that Obama is not up to the task of being Commander in Chief and that he does not command the respect of the men and women of the uniformed services… from the newest Private E-1 up to the top four-star generals and admirals.
Medical Journals Pimp for Big Pharma
PLoS Medicine a peer review journal for the Public Library of Science claimed in an article that the most respected medical journals have become much too dependent on revenue from the pharmaceutical industry from two sources. First, advertising revenue which, according to PLoS, is the least corrupting form of revenue since the pharmaceutical industry should have the right to reach their potential customers in the periodicals their customers—doctors—read. What is the bigger problem…….
