Friday Follies: Michelle Obama postpones return to prison, school kids eat again, State Department kiddies grow up and Obama still screwing up

January 10, 2014

Follies this week are brought to you by your very own bought and paid for (well, at least borrowed from the Chinese) federal government. More specifically the occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the kindergarten klowns now running our State Department and a Department of Agriculture that is still refusing to release data on where taxpayer dollars are spent in the SNAP/EBT card scheme.

 “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 We start this week with Michelle Obama and the main stream press sharing a spot. FLOTUS for continuing her Marie Antoinette lifestyle and costing the U.S. taxpayer even more money by staying on in Hawaii instead of returning on the same plane as her husband. (Not to mention the economic harm she is putting upon the local businessess.) The usually rabidly pro-feminist press corps who didn’t say a peep about the hypocrisy of man Obama “letting” his wife to stay behind a few days as a “gift” for her upcoming 50th birthday.

But the good news is that it looks like Michelle finally found a way to escape from that White House prison she so bemoaned last summer.

#4 Remember when FLOTUS made childhood obesity her “cause” and in the name of that cause was able to get the United States Department of Agriculture to mandate that school cafeterias all across the country comply with Mrs. Obama’s wishes and force healthier “choices” down the gullets of our next generation? Seems there may be hope for this country yet as in one school district after another, the dear lads and lassies simply refused to go along. Realizing the negative publicity from school students everywhere dropping like flies in classrooms from insufficient calorie intake at lunch the USDA made permanent this week a rule allowing states more “flexibility” in the amount of meat and grain allowed in school lunches. TRANSLATION: Kids: 1 Meddling Michelle: 0

#3 The kindergarten klowns over at Hillary Clinton’s old State Department finally got around this week to “officially” acknowledging what everyone that wasn’t licking Obama’s boots or wiping his a$$ with the New York Times already knew: The Benghazi attack that killed four Americans was terrorist caused! Of course David Kirkpatrick and his editors over at the NYT are still standing by his story that terrorists were not directly involved but as everything else with the NYT these days, that’s all it is; A story. A fictional, “what can we do to help Hillary 2016 next story. A pathetically pandering piece of steaming crap that even Goebbels couldn’t read without laughing. But, so it goes. This IS after all the age where “all the news that’s fit to print” is now defined by “what’s the DNC want on the front page today?”

#2 Seems Republicans aren’t the only ones this administration is willing to attack for getting in the way of their agenda. The item this time though should concern all Americans. Iran and nuclear weapons. As has been the talking point for the past five years, the White House actually seems to believe it’s own hype that the radicals in Tehran will agree to give up their quest for a nuclear weapon if only the United States will be a little bit nicer when asking. And said White House believes so strongly in said fantasy that it has now resorted to attacking top Senate Democrats like Bob Menendez of NJ. Menendez and now almost a veto proof majority of Senators from both parties are finalizing a bill that would codify new and stronger sanctions against Iran if they don’t negotiate in good faith in the coming months.

As my Wednesday Globe column shows, the Obama foreign policy in the Middle East has been a disaster from the start. Continuing to let the incompetence of Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Obama lead this nation down the path of a “peaceful, nuclear Iran” ensures but only one thing: Obama will be the President who allowed a nuclear detonation on U.S. soil that wasn’t a test in the desert of Nevada. Harsh words, yes, but history shows time and time again, that appeasement today only guarantees devastation tomorrow.

#1 While the number one spot this week is again occupied by none other than one Barack Hussein Obama the egregiousness this past few days has been so bad there was no way to edit down to just one, single act. The Corner instead presents you the latest compendium of failure and hypocrisy brought to you by the one President that makes Jimmy Carter smile.

Using his weekly address to slam Republicans for “going home for the holidays” before extending ever longer “emergency” unemployment benefits and doing so while still on his own millions dollar plus taxpayer funded vacation extravaganza in Hawaii.

Dear Leader pushed the hypocrisy even further when on Tuesday the multimillionaire President took to the “income inequality”, class warfare, the rich are evil meme and somehow forgot to tell the American people, that he and his only pay and effective tax

Again using children as political props Obama on Thursday unveiled his latest made for media schme, 5 “Promise Zones” that in his words will among other things “aid in cutting through red tape to get access to existing resources”.

The Friday jobs report reinforces once again the failure of this adminsitration. An administration that after FIVE YEARS in office has only a misleading number of a fake 6.7 percent unemployment rate to tout as a “success”. Of the 74 thousand jobs created in December tens of thousands were only part time jobs and almost five times as many Americans dropped out of the workforce entirely. There are now over 90 million working age, able bodied Americans not working. The labor participation rate in this county is at its lowest point since 1978. Need I remind you who the failure in office at that time was?

And last but by no means least is the news that in 2013, China surpassed the United States as the largest trading nation in the world with over $4 trillion in goods traded. While U.S. numbers are still not released (maybe they’re lost in the pile of misdirection and obfuscation?) the UK Guardian notes that with 11 months of US trade only totally $3.5 trillion it’s highly unlikely the U.S. will remain the #1 trading nation.

So there’s your #1 Follies for the week of January10th, 2014. 5 abject failures in just 7 days. If Obama’s not careful his number of failures will surpass his number of times at the golf course. And that would certainly be a stain on the legacy of the smartest President ever.

I realize I’ve now totally depressed you, but hey, I’m only the messenger. Shoot me and you’ll be as ignorant and uninformed as those millions of idiots who voted in the biggest idiot in the first place.

The sad truth is, that as long as Obama and crew remain in power there will be plenty more #1’s to come.

#1’s in all the wrong categories.

Don’t know what climate change has in store for your local area this weekend but here at the Corner homestead we’re supposed to be in the mid to upper 50’s so it’s outside for some cleanup and some thick slices of bovine sacrifice from the grill.

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