Friday Follies: Senate Dems bark for climate change dollars – More Obamacare lies – Elders boards the tranny train

March 14, 2014

There were climate change lies on the Senate floor and Obamacare lies from the President himself.  Add in the now all too familiar attack on the 1st and 2nd amendments by another public school system, the administration burning more bridges with the Egyptian military in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood, and a new report calling for lifting the ban of transgenders in the U.S. military and the left was in full attack mode this week.

”Tis that time once again when we take stock of the inane and foolish put upon us by those forced to navigate life with an amount of gray matter just slightly larger than that found in your average toad.”

#5  Unfortunately we start off the Follies this week with yet another example of yet another public school system showing hostility to both the 2nd and 1st Amendments.  From Douglas Ernst’s Washington Times report:

A New York high school student was recently suspended for refusing to take off an NRA shirt that said “The Second Amendment shall not be infringed.”

Shane Kinney, 16, of Grand Island High School was suspended for one day for an NRA shirt that his parents say he has worn before with no problems, a local station reported.

“It’s the same shirt he’s worn before, but this time they said something about it,” Shane’s father, Wayne, told the station. All family members belong to the gun rights organization, and their son considers himself an outdoorsman.

“They said it was the guns,” Mr. Kinney said. Adorned on the shirt are two crossed rifles.

But if you think that’s bad, wait till you get to Folly #1.  If the idiots behind the worst Folly this week get their way, guns will be the least of our nation’s problems.


#4  This week’s number four is news that the Obama administration is still throwing a hissy fit over the Egyptian military’s removal of Presidential Muslim Brotherhood tyrant Mohamed Morsi.

Bill Gertz over at the Washington FreeBeacon reports:

The Obama administration has turned down an urgent appeal from Egypt’s government for the delivery of U.S. Apache attack helicopters needed for counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula….

…According to U.S. officials, the Egyptians said the attack helicopters were urgently needed for Cairo’s fight in the Sinai against a new al Qaeda-linked terrorist group called Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, or Ansar Jerusalem….

“The Egyptians are fighting in the Sinai to protect their own interests, Jordanian interests, and Israeli interests,” the official said. “They’re in a tough fight and the administration is refusing to provide the Apaches, which is tantamount to supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The Egyptian military has been a strong and dependable ally of the United States for years, yet now, when they need us the most, Obama turns his back for the sake of a Muslim terrorist.

THAT dear readers, is but just one more example of why I have absolutely NO respect for the current occupant of the Oval Office.

That office has had its share of incompetents and miscreants but it has never been occupied by one so absolutely careless to American geo-political interests and national security.


#3  Number three this week is something never before seen on the floor of the once respected United States Senate:  The all night talkfest by members of the Democrat party espousing their undying loyalty and absolute adherence to their Church of Climatology.

From the article:

“We have a simple message for all Americans: We’re not going to rest until Congress acts on the most pressing issue of our time,” said Sen. Brian Schatz, a freshman Democrat from Hawaii, who organized the all-nighter on the Senate floor.

The overnight session is meant to “make sure everybody across the nation knows we’re taking this seriously, and that there is a stirring in the Senate on this issue,” said Schatz. Participants said they will make the point that climate change is “real, caused by humans, happening now, and it is solvable,” he said. “We are the cause, but we are also the solution.”

Of course what would be otherwise unbelievable hypocrisy if it weren’t that this is the Harry Reid branch of the Democrat party is the fact that not only will not one of the 30 lunatics who participated in the stunt will introduce even one page of legislation on climate change this year but that the other 45 percent of his own caucus wouldn’t even participate.  Especially those up for re-election in red states that are far more concerned with jobs and energy costs than Harry Reid’s hate of the Koch brother’s and Barbara Boxer’s love for unicorn dreams and fantasy farts.

But the entire night was nothing but a charade.  A charade put on for but one person:  billionaire eco-nut Tom Steyer.

Ed O’Keefe filled in the blanks over at the Washington Post:

“Steyer hosted a recent fundraiser at his San Francisco home that netted the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee $400,000 and where Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and the six other Democratic senators in attendance openly discussed plans for tonight’s talkathon, according to reports. Reid also has vowed to allow his colleagues to discuss the issue during their weekly lunches and on the Senate floor.

This year, Steyer plans to go much farther by using his advocacy group, NextGen Political Action, to spend about $100 million to help Democratic congressional candidates. Half of the money will come from his fortune as a former hedge-fund manager, while the other half will, he hopes, come from donors.

The group plans to refuse to spend money on behalf of Democrats who oppose climate regulation, but will not spend money against them either. That’s why none of the Democratic senators facing especially tricky reelection races this year — Sens. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) especially — plan to speak out Monday night. They won’t lose anything by not showing up, but they also won’t open themselves up to attack from conservatives who could try tying them to the environmental lobby.”

Translation of all the above:

Liberal hedge fund billionaires = good, Conservative business billionaires (ie KOCH brothers) = bad.

It’s OK for billionaires to buy elections (Steyer poured over $10 million into the Virginia governor’s race to help elect Terry McAuliffe) as long as they’re buying those elections for devotees to the cause.

And even if that billionaire made much of his fortune in oil and fossil fuels it matters not if you “come clean” and start “donating to green”.

#2  Dear Leader takes the runner up position this week for his recent performances of taking arrogance and lying are taken to new heights when it comes to his namesake healthcare “reform” law:

This week he flat out lied to young Americans with “And the truth is that they can get coverage all for what it costs you to pay your cell phone bill,” (Daily caller reporter Giuseppe Macri proves it here) and last week, when a viewer at a Spanish-language town hall told the President that even though he made $36,000 a year, times were tight and he just couldn’t afford the Obamacare premium and still provide for his family, Mr. O had the gall to opine:

“if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill… it may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.” He added that if a family member gets sick, the father “will wish he had paid that $300 a month.”

Read the full story and watch the video here..

WOW, “just…haven’t prioritized”.  This coming from a failed community organizer who’s racked up $7 Trillion in new debt in just six years and who at a GAP store Tuesday to promote his income inequality B.S. was amazed that you could now just SIGN the credit card machine.


#1  The top Folly this week is more an idea than any one single person.  It’s a bad idea and it’s rotten to its core but it’s an idea being pushed by the LGBTQ “community” and that idea is that being of a transgender mentality no longer should disqualify you/he/she/it/whoever from serving in the United States Military.

From the San Francisco story:

An independent commission led by a former U.S. surgeon general has concluded there “is no compelling medical reason” for the U.S. armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving and that President Barack Obama could lift the decades-old ban without approval from Congress, according to a report being released Thursday.

The report said Department of Defense regulations designed to keep transgender people from joining or remaining in the military on the grounds of psychological and physical unfitness are based on outdated beliefs that require thousands of current service members either to leave the service or to forego the medical procedures and other changes that could align their bodies and gender identities.

“We determined not only that there is no compelling medical reason for the ban, but also that the ban itself is an expensive, damaging and unfair barrier to health care access for the approximately 15,450 transgender personnel who serve currently in the active, Guard and reserve components,” said the commission led by Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who served as surgeon general during Bill Clinton’s first term as president, and Rear Adm. Alan Steinman, a former chief health and safety director for the Coast Guard.

To which I promptly provided my two cents comment:

Geoff Caldwella day ago

So for the ideology of a few let’s take what has produced the best military the world has ever known and turn it into a taxpayer funded social science project.
The biggest problem with liberals is they just can’t accept the fact that just because you have a want, does not mean you have a right to force that want on others.

A comment that I am proud to say has remained at the number 1 spot since yesterday with over 184 likes and garnered over 3 dozen responses and interactive conversations.

But what’s worse than the crazy idea itself  is the attempt to give it credibility by labeling it an “independent commission”.

It was “commissioned” (paid for) by the left wing think tank The Palm Center which is partly funded with $1.3 million from billionaire former Army lieutenant colonel Jennifer Pritzker who “outed” He/She/It self last year as a transgender.

And lest you forget the Joycelyn Elders who headed this report is the same Joycelyn Elders that was fired by Bill Clinton from her job as Surgeon General for her support of handing out free condoms in public schools and advocating that said schools should also be used as a place to teach our little ones proper techniques of masturbation.

Throw in an Obama donor, a Hillary Clinton donor (from and an openly gay panelist and this so called “independent” commission is about as independent as a Pravda reporter commissioned to write a Putin biography.

As always, thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend and I’ll see ya round the Corner.


If you haven’t heard of Victor Davis Hanson, you should and here’s just one reason why:

Is Obama Walking the Trail Blazed by Nixon?

If you’re already a fan of the great VDH you’ll appreciate this gem of logic and reason.
