Jimmy Carter’s enduring failure.

How many of us remember a time when the United States did not have a Cabinet-level Department of Energy?  Does anyone remember why it was established?

In 1977, with 40.5 % of U.S. crude oil supplied from foreign sources, Jimmy Carter announced the creation of the DOE with the statement: “Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 – never.”

As of 2014, nearly 37 years after its creation, with 16,000+ employees and an annual budget north of $30 billion, the DOE produces exactly nothing in the way of energy.   More than 61% of U.S. crude oil comes from foreign sources.   The DOE has been a complete and utter failure at the one thing it was created to do –  reduce our reliance on foreign crude oil.

And these are the people that want to be in control of the provision of your health care.

Thanks, Jimmy.

That’s going to leave a mark …

Mitt Romney is no great debater, and he’s not a natural politician.  Last night, he only had to appear competent.  Against President Social Promotion, he did that and more.

The weeping and wailing of the Left about Obama’s performance (see, e.g.,  Matthews, Chris and Sullivan, Andrew) is sweet, sweet nectar to be savored.

At some point in the career of a person following the arc of the Peter Principle, reality asserts itself (read: gravity).  You go from the golden boy who can do no wrong to a member of the crew of a crippled B-17 returning from a bombing raid over Germany, with two engines out mushing along at 100 feet over the English Channel, heaving everything not nailed down out of the airplane in a desperate attempt to gain enough altitude to mush over the Cliffs of Dover without crashing.

See Obama, B.

FAIL, thy name is Soetoro.

Obama Has American Citizen Arrested For Exercising His First Amendment Rights

Yes, making a film that makes the Administration uncomfortable now gets actual brownshirts sent to your door in the night.  Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore claims that the “interview” was “voluntary” and that Nakoula Bassely Nakoula was not under arrest.

Yeah, sure.

Hey Barack (Barry) Hussein (Soetoro) Obama:  Fuck you and the camel you rode into town on.  That’s right, I am exercising my First Amendment rights to call you a cocknugget douchetool.   Are you going to track me down and have me taken in for a “voluntary interview” with The Man?

Ann Barnhardt demands to be immediately arrested for blasphemy, because apparently that is now the law in this country, even though nobody seems to know when or by whom that law was passed.  In accordance with Ann’s wishes, this blog is reposting the YouTube video of Ann burning the pages of a Koran that has been bookmarked with strips of bacon.  Ann has called out the thuggish Obama regime on this.  Will they respond?

Here’s the video.  See that it gets distribution far and wide.

Here is the same video subtitled in Arabic. I hope it gets sent far and wide in the insane muslim world.

Gee, it’s like 1979 all over again

Let’s see:

Soaring gas prices?  Check.

Flaccid economy?  Check.

Government spending out of control?  Check.

Middle East tensions with assaults on our embassies and murder of ambassadors?  Check.

Impotent foreign policy strategy?  Check.

Fears of nuclear showdown?  Check.

Russian hegemony causing us grief?  Check.

Total loser ensconced in the White House?  Checkcheckcheckcheck.

Maybe I should get my plaid bell-bottoms out of storage and relive the glory days of old.  At least the music was better back then (disco notwithstanding).

Sadly, there is no Ronald Reagan waiting in the wings to put things right.

Fast & Furious Redux, 2.0, Deja Vu, All Over Again

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Honestly, we are so hosed.  The Federal government does what it wants, when it wants, and screw you if you object.

The phone rang before sunrise. It woke Craig Patty, owner of a tiny North Texas trucking company, to vexing news about Truck 793 – a big red semi supposedly getting repairs in Houston.

“Your driver was shot in your truck,” said the caller, a business colleague. “Your truck was loaded with marijuana. He was shot eight times while sitting in the cab. Do you know anything about your driver hauling marijuana?”

“What did you say?” Patty recalled asking. “Could you please repeat that?”

The truck, it turned out, had been everywhere but in the repair shop.

Commandeered by one of his drivers, who was secretly working with federal agents, the truck had been hauling marijuana from the border as part of an undercover operation. And without Patty’s knowledge, the Drug Enforcement Administration was paying his driver, Lawrence Chapa, to use the truck to bust traffickers.

This article in the Houston chronicle gives the whole sordid story.

Damn.  Just, damn.

President Obama – Smallest Man In The World

It’s often said that the President of the United States is the most powerful man in the world.  This cheesy photo-op shows Obama as just the opposite.  What do you want to bet the staffer responsible for this gaffe is looking for work now?

You just can’t make this shit up.

What do you think a video game would look like if the Federal Government was in charge of designing it?  Well, wait no longer.  Only the game has been designed by USC, under a $40,000 grant from the NEA, so it really is just a Federal Government design by proxy.  And the theme of the video game?

Walden Pond.

Yes, really.

I’m certain this will suck nine kinds of ass, because, frankly, Walden (the book) totally sucked ass.  For a couple of scorching take-downs of this wretched liberal claptrap, see:

Drowning In Walden Pond

Wal-Dumb: A Review of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden

Now, if the videogame added a first-person-shooter feature so that players could hunt the pathetic liberal cretins shambling around the Waldenverse, then maybe we’d have something to talk about.

This spot-on video got the Twitter account of its producer – Free Market America – suspended.  I wonder why.

The older I get, the more I appreciate people who speak the truth, speak it plainly, and speak it unapologetically.  Pat Condell brings the heat to the Religion of Peace™.
