Michelle Obama: Hooray for People Who Look Like Me!

michelle-obama-pointing

Continuing the theme of Identity Politics of her race-baiting husband, Michelle Obama declares “Black Girls Rock!”

Oh, I know, it is just a harmless event to boost the self-esteem of a racially defined section of our population.   I am also certain that any similar event called “White Girls Rock!” would be accepted with open arms by “da Black Communitah”, and no celebrities who spoke there would ever be accused of being hateful racist bigots who have neo-Nazi tendencies, or might, in fact, be Klan members.

Sectarianism and the racial double standard.  The gifts that keep giving.

Obama Caught in a Lie With Remarks About Hillary E-mail Scandal

Seems Barack Obama can’t keep the fibs straight.  From thefederalistpapers.org.  In a CBS interview with Bill Plante, this is what His Majesty had to say:

Nope.  Certainly sounds like he never e-mailed her.  Had no idea about the private e-mail domain.   But now Josh Earnest tells us that Obama did indeed e-mail Hillary, at that private address and private domain, in her role as Secretary of State.  Which means, as TFP points out, that Obama was lying.  Through his teeth.  Again.  Knowing good and well he is covering for his boss’s dishonesty, Earnest keeps trying to tell us “the point” is something other than Barack Obama being caught in another lie.

The rest is just a tap-dance to cover that fact.   But I am sure Brother Barack is telling the truth about banning ammunition, and about Obamacare, and regulation of the internet, and Benghazi, and the IRS, and Solyndra, and Iran, and…..

Sometimes it IS the club’s fault….

It isn’t often that I can relate to a professional golfer.  Mostly because they usually don’t lay the sod over a 70-yard flop, or three-putt from ten feet.  That, and I am a lot more settled with the idea that I am not very good at golf.  I am not a club-thrower, either, but I do understand the urge.  As does every other golfer, including Judge Smails.

Mr. McIlroy, unlike me, has a brand new custom-fit 3-iron waiting for him this morning, free of charge, that Nike started building before the ripples in the pond had spread.  Maybe that is another reason I don’t throw clubs.  I can’t afford it.

Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address

lincolninaugural

One hundred fifty years ago today, March 4th, 1865.  It is a speech that could NEVER be given today, because of the President’s reference to faith, and to God, and the Bible, and scripture.  However, it remains one of the most moving and eloquent speeches ever given by an American, astounding in its sentiment, given in the middle of a war that had already claimed two-thirds of a million souls, with no end yet in sight.  It is part of American scripture.

Neither party expected for the war, the magnitude, or the duration, which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with, or even before, the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has his own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” If we shall suppose that American Slavery is one of those offences which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South, this terrible war, as the woe due to those by whom the offence came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a Living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope–fervently do we pray–that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue, until all the wealth piled by the bond-man’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether”

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan–to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.

Thirty-five days later, the American Civil War would end, at Appomattox Court House.  Forty days after his speech, Abraham Lincoln lay dying of a bullet in his skull.  After a century and a half, some of those wounds have still not fully healed.  And some of the descendants of  those whom Lincoln sought to emancipate have re-established racial divisions, to the detriment of our nation and its people.  Yet, we do remain One Nation, under God, despite the efforts of the secular progressives on the far-left to render us otherwise.

What Sox and Jackass are Plotting for the Rest of the World

What a Statesman Sounds Like

The contrast with our President is stark indeed.  A clear and rational petition for the safety and existence of his nation and his people.

Small wonder that Obama and the far-left Democrats objected so much to Netanyahu’s appeal for the survival of Israel.  We get the Cairo speech, and “don’t insult Islam”.

**********************************************

What’s some of the reaction to Netanyahu’s speech from the Arab world?

Tzvi Yechezkieli, the Arab affairs expert of Channel 10, said that many Arab commentators supported the content of Netanyahu’s speech. He cited a commentator on Al-Arabiya TV, who had said that he could have written a large part of the speech.

Yechezkieli said that the Arab countries are convinced that Obama will not safeguard their security interests in the current negotiations with Iran and will not protect them against Iranian aggression.

The above is not isolated opinion, either.  There was this on Bibi’s speech at AIPAC:

Yesterday, Faisal J. Abbas, the powerful Editor-in-Chief of Al Arabiya English, published an editorial under the headline: “President Obama, listen to Netanyahu on Iran.” Abbas’ editorial was a reaction to Netanyahu’s speech to AIPAC yesterday.

He wrote: “In just a few words, Mr. Netanyahu managed to accurately summarize a clear and present danger, not just to Israel (which obviously is his concern), but to other U.S. allies in the region.”

The Saudi Daily Al-Jazirah published an article written by Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj, who supported Netanyahu’s decision to speak to the U.S. Congress against the upcoming deal with Iran. He called Obama “one of the worst American presidents” and said that Netanyahu’s campaign against the deal is justified because it also serves the interests of the Gulf States.

Barack Obama and his fellow travelers seem to be the only ones, aside from Iran, that were critical of the Prime Minister’s address.
