The Air Farce One Flyover Debacle

Much is being made about the presidents plane buzzing New York and causing panic among the public. But there seems to be something missing in the reporting of this incident.

1. Where was the plane that the photographer was in? The video I have seen shows only the 747 and the 2 F16s. Who was taking the pictures?

2. This incident strikes me as joy ride by someone in the Obama administration. Did Michelle want to take the kids out for a spin? As they say in airplane lingo. How many souls on board? and Who were they?

3. If this was an actual photo op for Air Farce One, Which cost the taxpayers over $300,000...

Obama the Post Turtle

As you can see posting has been pretty non existent the last couple weeks. The spring semester is finally drawing to a close and I have been furiously procrastinating on the last few papers and projects. Then this little piece landed in the inbox.

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his performance as our president.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, and he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with'.

MSM Catches up with the the Blog "O" Sphere

It only took about a week but CNN rolled out one of its sarcastic man in the street segments to put a humorous spin on the "Obama bows to his King" foopah. White House Propaganda Chief Robert Gibbs response is indicative of administration tactics for dealing with such things. Think back to the Blogonovich scandal(seems like eons doesnt it) "We took a look at it, there's nothing to see here folks, move along now my ignorant peons we have the world to save."

Contrary to White House spin the evidence shows this was no two handed shake between Shaq and Billy Barty which seems like a very lame excuse coming from the smartest president eveh. Certainly there were more plausible explanations like...

"Wow, that king has a grip like a vise, next time I'm goin for the knuckle bump."

Or, "Oh God!, excuse me your excellency while I puke."

Perhaps they could have said he was just checking out the kings shoes:

Obama: "Yo, for sheazy ma neazy! Where you get them fly-ass kicks!"

The King: "Payless, fa sho.

Obama: “I just bought a pair of Air Force Ones. Now these are some tite ass kicks my brother!"

The King: "Obviously you are oblivious my hip gangster from Harvard. You are off the chain, so to speak; my fuckin grandma has sweeeter kicks then that and she be dead.

What a difference a regime change makes.

Who can forget those wonderful days of yore when a president could pledge $35 million for tsunami victims and still get a reaction like this.
From the DU
His Chimperial Highness says he's going to send 35 million bucks to the affected areas, and all the flying monkeys are crowing about what a brave and generous leader he is. But his coronation ceremony next month will cost about that, and will perhaps exceed it. (30 million).

Today the US announced aid to quake stricken Italy.
From Brietbart

The United States said Monday it would donate 50,000 dollars in emergency aid to Italy after a powerful earthquake killed at least 100 people.
"We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed in the earthquake. Our embassy in Rome will provide 50,000 (dollars) in emergency relief funding," State Department spokesman Robert Wood told reporters.

Our new Chimperial Highness spent 170 MILLION for his inauguration then pledges a measly 5oK for Italy. Unlike the writer at DU I know there is no correlation between inauguration costs and disaster relief but the point is I can find nary a peep denouncing this display of tight assedness. Oh, the hypocrisy.

The Prince Bows to the King.

I am not one to latch on to conspiracies but my paranoid friend tells me that I am starting to sound like him. If that's the case, lets jump in with both feet, shall we.
On the heels of Obama's now famous bow to the King of Saudi Arabia last week, this paragraph leapt off the page while I was reading yesterday.

"Because of the demands of the war the government postponed decisions on how "..." laws and standards were to be introduced and applied. From the first days of the "..." rule, though , certain objectives were established. Primary among them was the achievement of the "..." principles of social justice and the equitable distribution of wealth. In the economic sphere the attempt to achieve these goals resulted in an expansion of the role of the state at the expense of private enterprise. The government nationalized the banks and insurance companies as well as large industrial complexes."
This paragraph is not about current events in the US but the days following the Iranian Revolution in 1979, and the missing word is "Islamic". This parallel should not be surprising given the communistic bent of the Iranian revolutionaries, but there is more to the Obama Islam connection.

His 2007 statement "My Muslim faith..." during an interview was generally dismissed as a slip of the tongue, but is it really a sign that his connections to Islam run deeper? As I told my friend the other day, Obama's pronunciation of Pakistan is oddly middle eastern given he grew up in Hawaii with midwestern grandparents. Can this be explained away as a desire to connect to the Islamic world or is it because of the time he spent there in the 1980s?
Now we have the bow. I have a hard time dismissing this as a slip in protocol when we know that there a closer and more personal connection to the King of Saudi Arabia. It has been widely reported that Obama's entrance into Harvard was greased by one Khalid al-Mansour an advisor to the King. Mansour was also an influential fundraiser during the campaign. Did the overseas dollars that the campaign refuses to discuss flow from the Saudi Kingdom? The bow suggests that this conspiracy may be rooted in a little bit of fact.

Flotsam and Jetsam: Iowa Roundup

Hundreds of Iowans were removed from the Iowa House chamber Tuesday night after a rowdy crowd consistently applauded and booed speakers.House Speaker Pat Murphy, D-Dubuque, cleared the crowd about 8:30 p.m. His directive came halfway into a two-hour hearing about a plan to end Iowans' ability to subtract what they pay in federal income taxes from their income when figuring their state taxes.The crowd was largely against the proposal.The decision to clear the chamber brought about loud protests from the crowd as people were escorted out by Iowa State Patrol troopers.

My fellow Iowans are mad as hell and they're not going to take it any more. Little disappointed that there wasn't more "hell no we wont go." But this may have been just the warm up for this...
