Karma catches up with Barack

For those who have staff to keep them organized, chronic tardiness is a pretty sure sign of arrogance.

The President of the United States has LOTS of staff.

Nevertheless, in Obama’s first two weeks in office, he was 10 minutes late to a memo signing ceremony, 30 minutes late to a bill signing ceremony and 45 minutes late to a ceremony to introduce economic advisers.

His lack of punctuality set the tone for his underlings that it was okay to be late. In those same two weeks, his press secretary Robert Gibbs was routinely late for daily news briefings, sometimes by more than an hour.

[Interestingly, fellow Democrat President Clinton was also known for being chronically late, while both Republican Presidents Bush were known for punctuality.]

This pattern of arrogant disregard for others was clearly established long before Obama’s rise to the Oval Office. The video here strings together eleven different instances during his brief tenure in the U.S. Congress when he arrived late to important meetings, having missed testimony and wasted the time of those who were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. [1:19]

He has kept it up throughout his tenure in the White House and demonstrated that, without question, his behavior is driven by sheer arrogance.

One of the most egregious examples dates from March 2010 when, in the middle of a White House meeting with Israel’s top leader, Obama told Netanyahu he was going up to the residence to have dinner in private with his wife and daughters. He told Netanyahu to wait if he wanted. Or not. Then he walked out.

Can you imagine ever doing such a thing to one of your guests? Can you imagine ever having this done to you when you are in someone else’s home? It boggles the mind.

But what goes around comes around. According to Bob Woodward of Watergate fame, when Obama phoned his contribution in to a meeting with his Democrat leadership, Nancy Pelosi pushed the MUTE button and Obama apparently never noticed nobody was listening. [:59]

And this week, when Obama put in a call to Great Britain’s Prime Minister, Cameron blew him off in favor of playing a third set of tennis.

MSNBC Bias BUSTED AGAIN!

Sept 2012: The New York Times and MSNBC pushed the faux tale that Romney is campaigning with Ryan, because Ryan is more popular.

In the MSNBC version of this fairy tale, these Never-Honest-Purveyors-of-News ADDED a big subtitle saying, “RYAN”, on to the video, to present the idea that the crowd was yelling, “RYAN RYAN RYAN”, which made it appear Romney was somehow needing to insert himself on to the ticket, when he says, “Romney/Ryan. Romney/Ryan. Romney/Ryan.” If you listen for yourself, it is clear that the crowd was actually chanting “ROMNEY ROMNEY ROMNEY”, and that what Romney was really doing was emphasizing that they are BOTH important to the Republican ticket.

It’s hardly the first time MSNBC has pulled this kind of stunt.

June 2012: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell aired this “Richie Rich Romney is out-of-touch with the common folks” story [:49]

Mitchell introduces it saying: “I get the feeling–take a look at this– that Mitt Romney has not been to too many Wawa’s along the roadside in Pennsylvania,” Romney says: “I was at Wawa’s, I wanted to order a sandwich. You press the little touch tone keypad, alright, you just touch that, and you know, the sandwich comes at you, touch this, touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there’s your sandwich. It’s amazing.” Her guest breaks into sharp laughter.

Too bad for American voters who NEED the fourth Estate to actually EDUCATE them, rather than act as an in-kind campaign donor to the Democrat of the moment, the clip above was carefully edited by MSNBC to make Romney look dim-witted.

His actual point was about the difference between private and public sector efficiency. After telling a story where his friend had to fill out a 33-page form twice to complete a change of address with the government, Romney presents touch-tone sandwich-ordering as an example of private sector efficiency.

“People in the private sector have learned to compete and it’s time to bring some competition to the Federal Government and to get it smaller, and have them respond to the customers, which are YOU!!”

Unedited version of Romney’s remarks [3:28]

The next day, Mitchell unapologetically aired a very slightly longer (by seven seconds!) clip, claiming they hadn’t had “time” to air the whole thing the day before. She made absolutely NO admission that the original clip and her introduction of it had been deliberately slanted to make Romney look ridiculous.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell refuses to acknowledge they misled their viewers over Romney’s Wawa [:56]

If anyone should be getting laughed at, it’s MSNBC. Check out where they are on this list of cable news viewership for Sept 27, 2012:

  1. FOXNEWS O’REILLY 2,841,000
  2. FOXNEWS HANNITY 2,511,000
  3. FOXNEWS BAIER 2,185,000
  4. FOXNEWS GRETA 2,080,000
  5. FOXNEWS FIVE 1,960,000
  6. FOXNEWS SHEP 1,857,000
  7. CMDY DAILY SHOW 1,832,000
  8. CMDY COLBERT 1,295,000
  9. MSNBC MADDOW 1,284,000
  10. MSNBC SCHULTZ 1,235.000
  11. MSNBC O’DONNELL 1,204,000
  12. FOXNEWS FOX/FRIENDS 1,149,000
  13. CNN PIERS 670,000
  14. MSNBC MORNING JOE 552,000
  15. CNN COOPER 477,000

P.S., In the longer version of the MSNBC “Sweet Jesus” clip, Scarborough used a sacred Catholic prayer to ridicule the Mormon-Catholic Republican ticket. That is very offensive to this devout Catholic; however, I will not be encouraging my co-religionists to chuck rocks at Joe. Just sayin’.

Some things just upset me too much UPDATE

I received the following from someone who really knows about this stuff. It’s important, so I am passing it on without any comments of my own.

The biggest problem with the word Jihad, is what the fanatic Muslims have done with it. Jihad (or holy war) is a very important part of the Muslim faith, just as Reconciliation is to us Catholics.

Jihad is the struggle to purify yourself. Most Muslim theologians will tell you that this should be an inner struggle, to make yourself pure for God, but Fanatics have distorted this teaching to mean, Kill everything and everyone who is not a crazy fanatic.

I wish that the west would not use this word to identify as the fanatics, it only helps to justify their quest for so-called Jihad.  It frustrates me that we use their words, because we then identify that word with something bad instead of something that is actually in true sense of the word, a very good and holy thing.

I absolutely support Israel, and I understand what the ad meant to say, but they should have stuck to terrorism, that’s a good word to define the Muslim fanatics and how they have distorted God’s teachings into something sick and disgusting.

THE DAILY PETE’S PIX

Posted by Pistol Pete

 

Thought I’d do the videos first today…just because I can.

Chrissy,I’m glad(sort of) I’m not the only one WordPress is messing with.

Most of you have already seen the video of the welfare queen in Ohio screaming in some unintelligible dialect.

Call me a racist,I don’t care,but…I have had a bellyfull of ignorant,lazy,greedy  animals who stand there with their hands out,screaming for free stuff,expecting an easy life just because they’re here.They’re rude,loud,overbearing and spit in your face for your kindness.We’ve all been behind some bitch in the grocery store with 8 kids by 6 different men who whips out her EBT card to get the same things you work your ass off for.They have no conscience,no shame and expect everything to come easy.Woe be unto you if you ever have to wait on these people in a restaurant or deliver a pizza to them,as I have.It never crosses their mind to tip a server,especially if they’re white.The thought of this massive tribe of Maumaus helping  this half-breed  stay in office is enough to make you want to scream.Do not be surprised if riots break out if Obama gets his ass handed to him in November.Not that they’re all that pissed,they just want to break some windows and steal some shit.

Rant over.

Kicking demon butt

I started the following as a short note to Pete on the Grudge, in regard to his skunk and spilled coffee. It got long. It also got feeling important enough for a blog posting, rather than burial in comments that a lot of our visitors don’t read.

We’re doing spiritual warfare here and we’re doing damage to Satan’s strongholds. Obviously, there will be push back. Skunk in the road. Spilled coffee in the lap (ouch). These are expectable events in anyone’s ordinary life, much more so when you go poking the hornet’s nest the way we’re doing now.

I’ve been doing spiritual warfare for years (long story) and I’ve learned two things.

  1. We can choose how we respond to bad things.
  2. If we choose grace over grouch, it totally kicks demon butt.

It’s challenging to learn how to thank God for bad stuff and, for a long time, I thought it was sick to even try. Then, I learned that it is only sick if you thank Him for the bad thing itself, not for the good He can bring out of it.

Romans 8:28 says,

“In all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

It doesn’t say, “In the good things.” It says, “In ALL things.”

So He’s doing good, always and everywhere. The trick for us is to learn to work WITH Him in this. I’m reminded of my eldest, who was a slippery escape artist as a toddler. Hold her hand, she’d do her best to pull away. Put a leash on her, she’d sit on the sidewalk and scream. Let her choose her own direction, she’d wait to see which way I wanted to go, so she could run the other way.

Does anyone question that I always wanted what was best for her and that, if she’d cooperated by going WITH me, we could have had more fun and fewer arguments and tears? God’s the same way. When something bad happens, the way of the flesh is to cuss and be all cranky about it; the way of grace is to choose the opposite.

It’s the message of the cross, that in and with Jesus, we can flip any and all bad things on their heads and use them to glorify God and build His kingdom.

Basic steps: ACTS

Adoration: Rejoice in having authority in Jesus to rebuke Satan and his plan to harm you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Contrition: Repent of the human desire to bitch and moan and, through repentance, allow God’s grace to change those human feelings.

Thanksgiving: Thank God for having a wonderful plan to bring good out of whatever it is.

Supplication: Offer up the suffering the bad things causes for the salvation of sinners.

I learned the power in this in a really wonderful way once.

I was in the kitchen and dropped something full of something, forget what, but it broke and made an almighty mess all over the floor and up the cupboard doors. My weak heart and arthritis make this a bigger problem for me than for most.

So I’m standing there, looking at this mess, knowing the clean-up will be long and painful. But I remembered I had the choice how to respond. So I said, out loud,

“Thank you, Lord, for giving me this chance to kick demon butt.”

I am not nuts and I am NOT making this up. But as soon as I finished saying that, I HEARD a voice say disgustedly,

“I HATE when she does that!”

It still gives me the grins to remember that!

This is not an easy skill to learn. But it is SO worth it. It also seems to me, looking back, that it was the first step on my road to beating depression.

Some things just upset me too much

There are issues, important issues, that upset me so much, I can barely bring myself to even read the news, much less study, digest, ponder enough to write and/or graphic them.

This is one of those. The article covers the points and provides links and video.

The only two coherent thoughts in my hair-on-fire head are, one, the gall of a spray-painting vandal comparing her defacement of the ad with the long, hard slog the makers of the ads went through to post it and, two, the ad says to oppose JIHAD, not Islam or Muslims in general.
