Loss Of Relevance

Posted in 2014 Election, Politics on October 21st, 2014

The axiom my be, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall,” but I’m more and more beginning this is a falsehood. Obama was and is a very small man and the boy’s fallen harder than most.

Oh Gods! Obama Is Speaking Again

Last Sunday, October 19, 2014, Obama finally found a Democrat that would consent to let Obama campaign for him – his “brutha,” Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for Governor against Larry Hogan. Apparently, racial solidarity trumped political science since most Democrat candidates have been very wary of appearing with Obama during their election races due to his plummeting popularity.

This may not have been a wise move of Brown’s part however. It seems that, once Obama started speaking, a steady stream of attendees started leaving the auditorium, apparently having no interest in hearing whatever it was that Obama was going to say.

ROFLMAO! And this was at a Democrat campaign rally! Obama’s loss of relevance, even among Democrats is as staggering as it is welcome.

Medical Experimentation?

Posted in Politics on October 16th, 2014

Obama's Ebola HazardI’ve already asked the question of whether or not Obama wanted ebola to strike the US. Now, watching the progress of ebola within America, another question comes to my mind. Did Obama and his CDC engage in “medical experimentation” in their handling of the late Thomas Duncan’s fatal and communicable illness.

This is more plausible than one might first believe.

It all comes down to the evidence presented by how Thomas Duncan’s case of ebola was handled.

Why wasn’t Mr. Duncan immediately moved to Emory Hospital, one of the best hospitals in the world for dealing with diseases such as ebola and attached to the CDC? It’s where all or most of the infected medical personnel from Africa have been sent. Barring that, why were the CDC largely uninvolved in the treatment of Mr. Duncan? Why instead were local civilian medical personnel put in charge of it with only CDC-approved protocols for them to follow?

Why, after those protocols were proven to be ineffective, resulting in the infection of one of his nurses, Nina Pham, were CDC staff not subject to emergency briefings reenforcing quarantine and containment procedures for other possibly infected Dallas medical personnel?

The only two answers I can come up with are gross negligence or a planned non-response. While normally I’m among the first to chalk up such things to negligence and/or incompetence, the White House’s and their CDC’s reaction really fits the model for an experiment.

So I have to ask if Obama and his CDC deliberately refused to respond to this initial ebola case in the US as a true emergency requiring the mobilization of CDC resources as a means of testing the in-place procedures and biological disaster response capabilities already in use. After all, various professionals have warned us for over a decade that our response and containment capabilities were lacking and this would be an effective “live fire” exercise to prove or disprove those predictions.

I admit though that it’d be horrendously ironic if this is the case – as it very well might be – since it mean the Black POTUS engaging in “medical experimentation” upon another Black man.

From Messiah To Mess

Posted in 2014 Election, Politics on October 14th, 2014

Oh how the “mighty” have fallen, tripped up and cast down by the harsh, unforgiving nature of reality. Obama, the Great Black Hope, was heralded as a messiah in 2008. Now, a mere six years later, the boy is just a mess – a tar baby that even Democrats steer clear of.

Obama – From Messiah To Mess

It’s up to we, the People to remind the Democrats that they’re already stuck to this particulary political tar baby and already coated in- and reeking of the mess that is Obama and his agenda. Hellfire! Even Obama has decompensated enough to petulantly rant this fact.

I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.

– Barack Obama

It time to take corrective action and cleanse the federal government of the feculent mess that has befouled it for six long, painful, and horrifically destructive years.
