Dear Leader's Amnesty Speech to His Subjects

(Image by Gary Varvel)
I didn't get a chance to watch President Obola's Amnesty Speech last night.  But the good folks at Townhall have it available for posterity.

President Obola claims his bypassing of Congress isn't amnesty and it is lawful.

And segwaying into Ebola:  In addition to the millions of supposedly healthy illegal aliens, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will granted to several thousand people who arrived from ebola-ravaged countries.

So much for will of the people and protecting the health of our nation's citizens.

There's plenty of articles on this subject in the aftermath of Dear Leader's speech, but for the next few days I'll be busy with work and family activities.

So for now, the big question is:  How should Republicans respond to Obama's executive amnesty?

Ministry of Truth Masking Obama's Amnesty Announcement?

(Image by Chip Bok)

Our Dear Leader will be announcing his plan for "solving" the illegal alien issue.  Speculation is high that President Obola will grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens via presidential executive order.

In other words:  Circumventing Congress and the will of  "We the People."

I haven't commented on this issue yet , because as of this moment, politicians are posturing and the not-so unbiased media types are in speculation mode.

However, there's been an odd development:  ABC, NBC and CBS won't be airing the president's speech tonight.

Still, whatever the excuse rationale, I've never heard of networks not airing presidential addresses.  

Funny how Univision will break into tonight's Latin Grammy Awards for El Presidente's speech.

All of #GruberGate in Two Minutes

While we're all waiting to hear what Our Dear Leader will say about illegal alien immigration, we can at least entertain ourselves with the key sound bites of "Grubergate."

Polar Vortex Redux?

The weather has been big news these past couple of days.
Of course, we know who the "usual suspect" for this early winter storm will be...

Senate Kiboshed the Keystone Pipeline

(Image from:  The Star Tribune)

Yesterday, the Keystone Pipeline Bill failed in the Senate

I think the cartoon sums up our choices quite nicely:  Oil will be transported across the country one way or another. 

We're already seeing a surge of "oil trains" here in Washington State.

A few months ago I met with some friends who are engineers by trade (and not conservative types).  One of them said that a pipeline was the most efficient way to transport fluid.

So can we call the supposedly eco-friendly crowd "pipeline deniers?"

"F***ing" Up Everything With Iran

When President Obola isn't golfing with his buddies, he's writing letters to Islamic dictators
One source put this in very un-PC terms:  It "F***s" up everything.
Of course, "f***ing" up everything can be applied to Obamacare, Benghazi, the "Reset Button" with Russia...etc. so on and so forth.
Even if we do get the Iranians to the Nuke Negotiations Table, I don't know how our State Department can talk tough when DOS supervisors are worried about being bullied by subordinates.
Unless our foreign policy "experts" are willing to stand up to the real bullies on the world stage, we'll help a monster break loose...

Up Next: "Net Neutrality"

(Image by Lisa Benson)

Next on President "Obola's" Hit List:  Net Neutrality--a solution to a problem no one has.

That's the best case scenario.

It's been described as the Obamacare for the internet.

Even that's not as bad as having Big Truthy watching (some of) you

I mean, this regime's administration's track record of not-so phony scandals doesn't inspire confidence in yet another well-meaning sounding regulation.

Though it's not just politicians that are pushing Net Neutrality.  Corporate coinage is being funneled into the coffers of various for/against politicians for the upcoming battle royale.

To his credit, the FCC Chairman is resisting President Obola's net neutrality push--for now.

Space Probe Lands on a Comet

With all the trouble our world is in, we're in need of some good news.

Yesterday, the European Space Agency landed a probe on a moving comet.

It may not be as cool as landing a bunch of roughnecks on an asteroid, like in Armageddon, but still a cool "one small step" at delving into the mysteries of our solar system.

A couple days ago another "phony scandal" broke. 

This time involving none other than the architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber.  Apparently, the key element to getting Obamacare passed was the stupidity of the American voter

He also bragged about exploiting the lack of economic understanding of the American voter

Congressman Trey Gowdy said he couldn't get past the irony to get to the arrogance, while Charles Krauthammer said what us like-minded folks knew all along:  Leftists lied about everything regarding Obamacare

Meanwhile, the University of Pennsylvania, where the Stupid Voter Panel Discussion occurred, has attempted to shove the viral video down The Memory Hole.

This latest "speak-o" as Gruber called it, is just another salvo in the Post Midterm Civil War the Democrats are fighting.

I'll end this post with a Gruber Gag Reel for your viewing (dis)pleasure.

The Problem With Polling

Prior to the midterm election, pundits were studying various polling data.

Both Democrats and Republicans thought they'd do well.

We all know how the Democrats fared last week.

But right, wrong, or indifferent, maybe big data should play a smaller role in our politics
