The concept of town hall meetings was just one of many staged and cloying stunts produced by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and her husband Harry and favored by Bill Clinton in an effort to portray him as warm and caring man with a lower lip that quivered on cue as if it was operated by remote control. The smoke and mirror effect so significantly blinded people to his misogynistic ways and penchant for self-indulgence that Americans were inundated with similar amateurish skits by politicians at every level for nearly 15 years. It mattered little that the questions were screened, the participants very often hand-picked, or that the hackneyed performances were without substance. It was pure schtick and an increasingly uneducated and superficially-inspired populous bought it. You don’t see congressional members engaging in them much anymore, however, because most of them are in hiding or wearing disguises so they aren’t recognized in public, and with good reason; they are accessories in crime for aiding and abetting a president fully intent upon destroying commerce, the very engine that drives our country.
The twelve essays I have contributed to Mr. Massie’s website to date consist of total of just over 10,000 words. That number offers a fascinating juxtaposition to the malevolent actions of a president and a cowardly Congress, for in just three short years they have collectively created 10,215 new laws and regulations for businesses, a number so excessive in stature that I had to source it three times before putting it into print. The preoccupation to create an average of 10 new rules or regulations per day speaks of a systemic determination to cripple business and industry and reeks of Stalin, Mao, and Lenin.
Such behavior does not come without a healthy dose of hyprocrisy, however. The United States is currently at odds with China’s adherence to World Trade Organization policies and it is Mr. Obama’s position that China is over-regulating access to rare-earth materials used primarily in car batteries as well as in high tech products like flat screen TV’s. He actually had the temerity to say, “If China would simply let the market work on its own, we would have no objections.”
A recent Heritage Foundation study estimates business compliance with Mr. Obama’s 28 largest mandates is $46 Billion per year and that the infrastructure costs to businesses for the purpose of reporting and answering to the iron hand of government is an additional $11 Billion. The Mafia is taking notes. After intentionally shackling commerce in a manner more commonly seen in garden spots like North Korea and Iran, only a sociopath could look into the camera and claim he is doing everything he possibly can to help the economy, and only an idiot would believe him.
The head of the Congressional Budget Office must have re-read his charter, had a stroke of conscience, or become resolved to having a mysterious fatal accident soon, for that individual finally released the true cost associated with a perpetrated fraud commonly known as Obamacare. The number has doubled from just over $900 Billion per year to nearly $1.8 Trillion, and if you’ll excuse my cynicism the number will likely triple given Mr. Obama’s ignorance about basic economics and aversion to the truth. “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” said lapdog, Nancy Pelosi, a comment so condescending and detached from an honest legislative process she should have been indicted.
The problems facing Mr. Obama as he attempts another swindle is that he has a record from which he cannot run regardless of his cooing media darlings and ability to tell bold face lies. A patriotic leader of this country does not kiss rings of OPEC racketeers unless he feels an affinity to them over that of his constituents. He does not authorize Oval Office photos released which show his dirty feet upon the desk or furniture unless he is sending a message of his contempt for America. He does not handcuff an entire industry then blame them for what his interference wrought. He sends a message of strength that we’ll develop our own resources and provide jobs, which would not only lower the price of oil, it would curtail financial terrorism in the oil speculation market. (that’s not Terrorism 101, Mr. President; it’s a level “5” course).
A strong president does not ignore the slaughter of innocent servicemen and civilians by a muslim insurgent at Ft. Hood and cow-tow to a foreign leader for collateral damage during war. He does not repeatedly use code words like “the American worker” to signify to unions the privileges that await them for funneling campaign funds, nor does he surround himself with the likes of a back-pedaling sock puppet like Steven Chu. If his true intent was to develop energy he would not misrepresent tax incentives for the oil industry as loopholes, nor suggest tapping oil reserves as a remedy, nor stare into a camera dimly when asked about energy solutions and utter the word “algae” and hope the world takes him seriously.
Mr. Obama’s early muse was Saul Alinsky, a one-trick pony and a fraud. He cultivated the appearance of one who divined answers from the universe when in reality he advocated chaos for the sake of mayhem without a sustainable plan in mind, appealing to people too weak to think for themselves and too lazy to achieve on their own. Like most charlatans, he preyed upon the spineless for ego-gratification with no regard for the outcome, and demonized industry as a rationalization for those who prefer a government teat over a paycheck.
The Founding Fathers anticipated the likes of Mr. Obama and a means by which he might be removed from office, but they did not include an intermediary step for stupidity prior to impeachment hearings. I know I can locate a dunce cap, so if someone provides a stool it is long past time for him to sit facing the corner.
