1944…1949…1984…2013: Which Doesn’t Belong and Why?*

This Week in History:

June 6 marked the the 69th anniversary of D-Day. General Eisenhower addressed the troops departing for the invasion on the beaches of Normandy:


"The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory.... We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

Did he mention God? To the troops? Oh my! What an unenlightened time that was. Imagine –a time when our troops felt free to implore a Higher Being as they embarked upon a deadly battle to protect and preserve freedom and liberty.

In fact, back then, people all over America still felt comfortable gathering in public to pray:

praying in america

Butt enough about that; none of it’s really relevant in the Age of Obama.


I mean, who needs prayers when we’ve got Obamacare? Well, maybe Sarah Murnaghan.

sarah-murnaghanPray for Sarah, that she doesn’t become the poster child for Death Panels

Next up on history’s time continuum: George Orwell’s 1984 was published on June 8, 1949. Boy, talk about synchronicity!

Press reports to the contrary, it turns out it actually was a handbook!


Now, not only is Big Brother watching you,

orwell obama creepy "It was one of these pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath ran." George Orwell, 1984


he’s got the technological capacity to stalk you too!

cover060613“The choice for mankind lay between freedom and happiness and… for the great bulk of mankind, happiness was better.”George Orwell, 1984.

Yesterday, in an ironic if not downright cynical speech Big Guy went on the record to defend Big Government’s collection of data on the phone records of millions of Americans, saying that it was a modest encroachment on privacy and one he thinks is both lawful and justified.

lady liberty meets tsa“Big Brother and the Party justify their rule in the name of a supposed greater good.” - George Orwell, 1984.

As an aside, you may have heard about the rather awkward start to Big Guy’s speech:

President Obama strolled out to the podium today in San Jose, CA and was immediately at a loss for words. Not only did the President not have (his) teleprompter, his aides forgot his speech.

“My remarks are not sitting here,” the President declared awkwardly.  “I’m uhhh….people….oh goodness….uhhhh...folks are sweating back there right now.”

I know you’re wondering why TOTUS was MIA. I can’t tell you the precise reason yet, as Val-jar is still circulating the talking points for input and comment. Butt according to MOTUS’ inside sources ( molsterman copy ) the initial draft of the talking points indicated that TOTUS has been placed on administrative leave (with pay) due to his malicious deletion of some key misinformation from one of Big Guy’s speech’s. Butt by the time they’ve been properly vetted I suspect they will say that TOTUS is on sick leave due to a blown video circuit.  All I can tell you at this point is that we have not ruled out terrorism.

Anyhoo, once Big Guy had his thoughts remarks handed to him he proceeded to eloquently justify the government’s cyber spying on you:

“If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.”

Oh yeah, we’ve got trouble all righty, right here in River City; with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for Prism.

“You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”

left tilt

When balance defies the law of physics, it’s probably an illusion.

"Late Lament": Moody Blues

Unfortunately we’re not allowed to look at those details because the most transparent administration in the history of the world doesn’t really trust us with them. Until they’ve been circulated for input, comment and revision. At least 12 times.

So if your government doesn’t trust you,

orwell obama devil

How can they expect you to trust the government?

i can hear you now copyThe oPhone: when they’re “free” you’re not. Can you hear me now?


breitbart_store_bug_color“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”  - George Orwell 1984

*1944…1949…1984…2013: Which Doesn’t Belong and Why? The correct answer is 2013, because the U.S. President is no longer fighting for freedom and liberty. Butt I’m sure there are other correct answers too.

Scandalanche® Update: Help Barry Buy a Vowel

We’re running out of letters here, people! We’ve used up so many on our acronym list of new and evolving scandals: IRS, FBI, CIA, DOJ, EPA, DOA, ATF, HHS, and GSA that we need to buy a few more vowels. Just since Wednesday we’ve had to add the LGBT (no vowels, thank goodness) and the NSA (extra “A” required) controversies to our ever expanding list of co-conspirators.

Boy, we just cannot make some of you people happy. First you complain about Big Guy getting all the news he doesn’t know anything about on the news and at his press conferences:

bo obama presser 1 jpgh/t the Morlock Revolt

Then you complain when he takes steps to get in the loop.

phonesNSA national museum of antique eavesdropping devices

The latest issue over some innocent data mining by the NSA came about because the Night Stalker, aka Val Jar, did not wish our hero (that would be BHO, in case you’re having trouble following the plot) to become “The Man Who Knows Too Much” because we all know what can occur when that happens.

val night stalker

So Val’s been screening BO’s calls for him ever since he became president. And since it has proved so useful for her purposes thus far:

valarie reallyOh really? Because that’s not what I overheard.

she decided “Hey! Why stop there when I have the power to screen everybody’s calls, emails and internet searches!?”

So remember this little cautionary tale, the next time you decide that it’s okay to trade a little bit of liberty for more security – a trap that even some of the best and brightest fall into occasionally. Here, for example, is Charles Krauthammer explaining, first, why he supports  Patriot Act style eavesdropping:

and then explains precisely why he shouldn’t:

Here’s the money shot: “when you’ve lost that trust, then the NSA stuff becomes really scary.” Because herein, my children, is the sad, unvarnished truth: you will eventually lose that trust because once you’ve granted unconstitutional powers to your government they will never give it back willingly and sooner or later they will use that power against you. As Charles himself explains, “it depends on who’s in office.”

Or in the immediate case, who’s really in office.

val jar chair“I’ll have a double espresso and bring the little guy a diet Coke.”

bo val“It’s okay, just tell them everything you know and you’ll be fine.”

Simple maxim to remember and teach your children: “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” h/t Lord Acton

By the way: we’ve kicked off a special OFA drive today which, regardless of what you hear, is not a legal defense fund. Please contribute today. And if you don’t we will begin spamming your email every 5 minutes until such time as you do.

China Blues

UPDATED With Traveling Music

You probably heard that Lady M won’t be attending the China summit in California with Big Guy this weekend. The official reason is “domestic responsibilities” because this is the last week of school for the Wee Wons. That would normally mean that Friday is the last day of the school year; freeing Lady M from her “domestic responsibilities” for the weekend.

Butt as you know, we’ve redefined “normal” around here.

lying new truth

So, we’re not going to California this weekend, no matter what the Chinese press thinks. And they don’t think very much of it:

First lady diplomacy is also very important and the US side has failed to cooperate," he said. "According to normal diplomatic etiquette this is very strange. It shouldn't be like this.

So, hmmm, with so much on the line there must be another reason Lady M can’t make it this weekend. Oh yes, here it is:

“China Girl”: David Bowie

The Chinese public had hoped that their country's first lady would dazzle the American public during this summit at the Sunnylands ranch in Palm Springs which opens on Friday and in which both sides have trumpeted as a bid to kick-start more constructive relations.

Peng Liyuan Francois Hollande Vists China w37grOxuH-LxXi Ping and Peng Liyuan, First Lady of China

First there was the lovely Carla,


then the French Rottweiler:

val rotty and mo

And now, you expect Lady M to deal with this?


Well forget about it we’re not going there. Literally.

Lady M has no interest in being compared to another foreign cover girl.

Elle-France-22-June-2012-Valerie-Trierweiler-Covermo vogue 2013carla_bruni_invit__e_d_honneur_du_num__ro_de_no__l_de_vogue_paris_3827_north_382x

Or another foreign folksinger:


Because, as you may recall, the lady can dance,

mo dances

butt she sure can’t sing.


Big Guy is the sole repository of that talent around here.

President Obama joins in singing “Sweet Home Chicago” during the “In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues” concert in the East Room of the White House, Feb. 21, 2012. Participants include, from left: Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Jeff Beck, Derek Trucks,  B.B. King, and Gary Clark, Jr.  (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.“The thrill is gone” No…Wait!

So despite what anyone thinks, and as I mentioned, they don’t think much;

"Maybe Michelle [Obama] doesn't like - or maybe she is just really busy," Prof Zhang speculated. "But being busy shouldn't be an excuse for missing an event like this." Several leading US commentators agreed.

"This is one of the few moments during her husband's term of office where what she does matters a small amount to world politics. She should be in California." Communist Party bosses had seen the meeting as a golden opportunity to deploy Peng Liyuan's much-vaunted charms on the world stage in a bid to spin a more favourable image of China's leaders, after a decade with the stiff, protocol obsessed former president Hu Jintao in charge.

 us-first-lady-michelle-obama-sings-with-kermit-the-frog-pic-afp-460945342It’s not easy being green - or black. Someone is always expecting you to sing for your supper

Lady M will be staying home this weekend to tend to her domestic responsibilities:


We’ve only got a month to plan for 2 month vacation on the Vineyards. Do you have any idea how many new garden frocks we need to order? How many cases of wine we have to select?

So for this weekend’s China summit, let’s leave the amateurs home to do whatever and let the pros handle the international musical intervals:

Whoops! That’s not the right pro shot! Sorry. Here we go:

Bi-the way, did you hear what Lady M didn’t say yesterday?

Lady M was so rattled by a LGBT heckler at the DNC fundraiser she was addressing yesterday

san fran's gay pride parade

that her big brain temporarily shut down, and an uncharacteristic flash of anger leapt out:

The pool reported that Obama left the lectern toward the protestor saying that they could “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

In a response that presented an alternative somewhere between a conundrum and a false dilemma, Lady M created her own new logic fallacy: the “Vamoose Conundrum.” It’s “telling people they have a choice between two options, immediately followed by a declaration that negates the first one.”


Now, I don’t know about you, butt where I went to school, that kind of magical thinking would only qualify you for government work.

lazystripe.govt work jpg

Butt since Lady M was fortunate enough to go to not one, butt two Ivy League schools she had lots more choices: should she stay at the white shoe law firm in her home town, or quit that non-challenging, well-paying job that she “worked so hard to get,” let her law license expire and go to work for the Daley Machine - where the real money power career opportunities were?


Butt back to the flawed-logic incident (that never officially happened - according to the Big White transcript of the DNC fundraiser event (h/t creeper). Just for the sake of discussion let’s say it did happen – not that I’m going to contradict “official” records that state that it did NOT happen, Press Pool transcripts to the contrary – I’m just establishing a hypothetical here for the sake of argument. So if it DID happen, you can see how it could have happened to anyone…had it in fact happened. And I’m not saying that it did. Okay?

Anyway, whose big brain wouldn’t have shut down under the assault of friendly fire?

159932185Well, besides St. Hillary?

Had this been the kind of heckler that Lady M expects from the far rightwing attack machine, say a Tea Party member demanding an executive order to stop the harassment of conservatives by the IRS (not that that ever happened, butt it could have), she would have been able to claw their eyes out respond with impeccable logic:

mo yelling“Sit down and shut up!”

Butt no, this attack came from out of left field; one of our own, a member of the LGBT coalition. One of our favored nations of the many flavored special interest groups.


Who Big Guy has done so very, very much for already -


bringing them out of the shadows and all.

gay pride day receptionbo lgbt

Ingrates. They always want more, no matter what you do for them.

Oh well, Lady M got things back on track quickly after the heavily armed Secret Service gendarmes ushered the activist, Ellen Sturtz, who was no lady, out of the event. As soon as MO turned the crowd’s attention back to the bedrock issue of making it all about “the children” we were once again back in the dialing for dollars business of politics as usual.

I know you’re interested in what MO was wearing, butt as you are well aware, Big Guy’s regime has a strict embargo on photos at fundraising events: we certainly wouldn’t want any of our contributors to be targeted by the hate groups. But here’s the “dark blue frock with black belt” that we were sporting yesterday, seen here at a previous event:

mo leaving charlotte

Now I have to run. Today I have to start screening all the books people have sent in for Lady M to take with her on her long Martha’s Vineyard vacay – because you can’t just eat, drink and relax all the time!

This one sounds interesting, butt given yesterday’s little anger management issue I think I better scan the entire book before turning it over. We don’t want to have any of those unfortunate “broken china” charges show up on our summer rental bill again this year. I don’t think the IRS will approve them as a legitimate business expense.


Note: Richard Sander is a former community organizer. Stuart Taylor, Jr. is one of our lefty journalists - and since he too graduated from Princeton and Harvard he must know what he’s talking about.

Exclusive Premiere: “Amateur: the Musical”

Before I get into today’s musical interlude, here are a few more details that have leaked out regarding the deal between Lucifer and Beelzebub Bubba and BO. They met at Andrews Air Force Base to hammer out the terms.

bill bo let me show you how to drive this thing“Let me show you how to drive this thing, son.”

Bubba agreed to give a gang-banger speech at the Democratic Convention and campaign for Big Guy, telling everyone who wasn’t already going to vote for BO that he was the best thing since sliced white bread - or at least since the Coming of Clinton.

In return, Bubba would get to name the next chairman of the DNC, and the lovely Hill would receive the full faith and credit of the U.S. President in her 2016 run.

How’s that working out so far?

 bo's smirkDebbiewassermanasss-BILL-CLINTON mad-large

“Look you two little twits, I invented the Big White Lie Machine”

Well, Big Guy Won, Debbie is still DNC chair, and Big Guy refused to take Bubba’s calls following the election. That is, until Ax-man reminded him what happened to previous “Friends of Bill” who went rogue.

Adjustments were quickly made; Hill’s retirement dinner was hastily scheduled at the Big White (Lady M was unavailable on such short notice), the TV endorsement booked; and then Big Guy Moved On.Org. Deal. Done. Or so he thought. Amateur.

Unfortunately, somebody leaked details of this Faustian deal to Ed Klein; in a brown envelope with no return address and no fingerprints.
