Obama: 2016 – A Must See

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

– Wiccapundit

Elphaba and I went to see the Dinesh D’Souza movie Obama: 2016 last night.  If you haven’t seen this, you should do so.  Even if you are deeply engaged politically and you think you know a lot about Obama, this movie will still provide some enlightening moments.

What we found interesting was that the theater was nearly full, at a multiplex where we have seen first-run thrillers recently (Spider-Man and The Bourne Legacy) playing to almost-empty theaters.  The audience was diverse in age and ethnicity, although there were few young people (meaning in their ‘teens and early twenties).  I overheard one man saying “I never knew that about Obama.”  This seemed to me to be a person who was not a “true-believer” conservative, but a person who merely came to the movie wanting to know more, and boy did he get it.

Recommend that all your friends see this.  If you have friends who voted for Obama in 2008, especially try to get them to see it.  The movie is not a “bomb-throwing,” “foam-at-the-mouth” diatribe, but rather a sober, calm, clear look at what Obama’s background and influences were.  No tin-foil-hat stuff here, just interviews with highly respectable people like Shelby Steele, and even one with Obama’s half-brother in Kenya.  He was very articulate, and calmly recited his perception of Obama.  Very powerful stuff.  The movie was produced by the Oscar-winning producer of Schindler’s List, so the production quality is first-rate.

Five stars.

Seriously? Seriously?

Your Wiccapundit loves him some show tunes.  South Pacific, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, and of more recent vintage The Will Rogers Follies (with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, who wrote the lyrics to Guys and Dolls).  But I hates me some truly amateurish community college theater major-bush league-municipal theater company attempt at being both politically relevant and off-off-off Broadway at the same time.   That, of course, would be One Term More, a website devoted to getting Obama the second term he so richly deserves, and the “musical” production found at the site.

This has to be the most wretched example of Lefty propaganda ever to see the light of day.  (click on the link, as the video can’t be embedded).  Watch it, if you can.  Watch it, if you dare.  If you can make it through the entire 6:12, you are capable of withstanding a waterboarding personally administered by Dick Cheney.

One Term More

Seriously, we are into territory that makes Plan Nine From Outer Space look like Oscar-worthy material.  I note that the title is One Term More, rather than One More Term.  I suppose that this was deliberate in order to provide more rhyming opportunities for the Thesaurusly-challenged librettist responsible for gems like this:

This man who would unseat Barack’s
A bleak choice at the ballot box.

Really?  You rhymed “Barack’s” with “box?”  I never would have seen that.  I guess that’s why you make your living at this kind of work.

Filibusters. Budget scrums.
Ultrasounds & speculums.
To the Dark Side they’ve succumbed.

Hmmm, let’s see: “scrums,” “speculums,” and “succumbed.”  Milton?  A piker.  Byron?  A hack.  This guy knows how to write poetry.  I bet those dead English guys could never have come up with a stinging retort like calling Republicans “fetid nuts.”

I guess they didn’t call the show One More Term because the only words that rhyme with “term” are “germ,” “sperm,” and “squirm.”  Which, if you  think about it, could all be used in one sentence and still accurately reflect the current administration.

Honestly, I think Spanky, Darla, and Alfalfa did a better job when one of the Little Rascals said “Hey! Let’s put on a show!”

I cannot give this performance the review it deserves.  I leave that to Cousin Vinny:

Meet the leeches

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

– Wiccapundit

When you argue with liberals about people mooching off the system and draining the productive wealth of this country, you usually get a response like: “well, that’s just an apocryphal story”, or  “you can’t rely on unsourced anecdotes to prove your point.”

Really?  Here’s two rock-solid, sourced examples:

The first is a copy of a receipt from a grocery store for five 24-packs of Mountain Dew, a half-dozen cold-water lobsters, and two Porterhouse steaks.  Total: $141.78, paid for with FOOD STAMPS.

I mean, seriously?  Who drinks Mountain Dew with steak and lobster?

Snopes verified it, and yes, it’s true, because the guy who bought the stuff has been arraigned in criminal court in Menominee, Michigan for trying to sell it.  Yes, it’s apparently legal to buy these kinds of comestibles with money obtained from the public tit; you just can’t turn around and sell them.  Jeez, heartless conservatives trying to keep a man down for doin’ a little arbitrage action?

But as the Democrats whine, “we can’t allow draconian Republican cuts of even a penny from these absolutely necessary social safety-net programs.”

The second takes a few minutes to watch.  Watch it.  This is the face of the blood-sucking parasite attached to your ass, exsanguinating you as you slave away at an actual … what do they call it?  Oh yeah, a job.

This guy should be taken out into the street and beaten senseless with whatever musical instrument he supposedly plays.  As Judge Judy says: “seventy thousand dollars down the sewer.”

Paging John Galt; Mr. Galt, you have a call.

Jon Stewart gets it this time

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

– Wiccapundit

Jon Stewart likes to vacillate between “clown nose on” and “clown nose off” when he wants to pretend he’s a serious political commentator and not just a highly paid mouthpiece for a comedy writing staff.  However, in this segment he does “clown nose off and on” simultaneously, and very effectively, I think:

Jon Stewart visits the troops in Afghanistan

Where’s Woodward & Bernstein when you need them?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

– Wiccapundit

How high must the stench of corruption go before some enterprising journalist (what used to be called a “reporter,” whose job it was to look for “facts”) decides he can make his career by just doing his damn job? Remember the Blagojevich scandal regarding the Senate seat formerly held by Obama?  Remember the allegations (pooh-poohed by the Left) that Obama involved himself improperly by suggesting to Governor Blago that he appoint an Obama toady to the vacated seat?  Remember how we were told by the MSM that there was no evidence that Obama had anything to do with it?  Er, not quite.

Fed informant passed delicate message to Blagojevich from Obama

John Wyma, a lobbyist and Blago’s former chief of staff, passed to John Harris (Blago’s last chief of staff) the following message: “the President-elect would be thankful and appreciative if the governor would appoint Valerie Jarrett to the Senate seat.”

Problem was, Wyma was a Federal informant.  Oops.  Blago was later caught on a wire-tapped call saying: “We know he wants her, they’re not willing to give me anything, just appreciation, f— them.”

Does this meet the legal standard required to establish criminal conduct?  I don’t know.  I’m not a criminal lawyer.  (I have a real job as a productive member of society, being an oil-speculating, pollution-belching, obscene-profit-acquiring capitalist.)  But there’s at least a story here.  If anyone in the media was paying attention.   Which they’re not.

Of course, it’s not really news, because it comes from the fevered writings of some right-wing-nutjob conservative blogger.  Oh wait, it doesn’t.  It comes from the Chicago Sun-Times.  Noted conservative newspaper and all.

Is North Korea responsible for the oil rig explosion?

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

– Elphaba

North Korean Poster

The EU Times is reporting that a North Korean Submarine torpedoed the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico!  This is a huge story, and it is not being reported by U.S. Media.  According to the article, a massive U.S. media blackout was ordered by the Obama Administration; if this report is true (I’d like to see clarification, but I have no reason to believe that it is not), the implications are enormous.  Here’s an excerpt from the article, which can be read in entirety HERE:

A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the World’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.

Most important to understand about this latest attack by North Korea against its South Korean enemy is that under the existing “laws of war” it was a permissible action as they remain in a state of war against each other due to South Korea’s refusal to sign the 1953 Armistice ending the Korean War.

To the attack itself, these reports continue, the North Korean “cargo vessel” Dai Hong Dan believed to be staffed by 17th Sniper Corps “suicide” troops left Cuba’s Empresa Terminales Mambisas de La Habana (Port of Havana) on April 18th whereupon it “severely deviated” from its intended course for Venezuela’s Puerto Cabello bringing it to within 209 kilometers (130 miles) of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which was located 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of the US State of Louisiana where it launched an SSC Sang-o Class Mini Submarine (Yugo class) estimated to have an operational range of 321 kilometers (200 miles).

On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright.  Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day with one of the largest environmental catastrophes our World has ever seen.

To the reason for North Korea attacking the Deepwater Horizon, these reports say, was to present US President Obama with an “impossible dilemma” prior to the opening of the United Nations Review Conference of the Parties to the Treat on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) set to begin May 3rd in New York.

This “impossible dilemma” facing Obama is indeed real as the decision he is faced with is either to allow the continuation of this massive oil leak catastrophe to continue for months, or immediately stop it by the only known and proven means possible, the detonation of a thermonuclear device.

This would explain why Obama has deployed the military  to the Gulf.  It is also possible that the whole story is a hoax, but I’m certainly going to keep my eyes and ears open for more news.

Iran Elected by U.N. to the Commission on Women’s Rights

Stoning of an Iranian Woman

Yeah, you heard me right.  The Islamic Republic of Iran, now on the Commission on Women’s Rights.  This is beyond ridiculous–indeed, beyond the pale; also, apparently Fox News is the only main stream news source that considers this newsworthy.  Furthermore, where is the outrage from feminist organizations such as NOW?  *crickets* …Bueller?  Bueller?  BUELLER?!!!!  Their website doesn’t mention anything about this…it is almost entirely dedicated to the promotion of abortion, veiled as so-called reproductive rights.

Boobquake Song!

The original Babe of Boobdom, the Maven of Mammaries herself…Dolly Parton:

Now that I’ve got your attention, and expanding on the subject of breasts, I friend of mine told me about the following video that a friend of hers made after writing a song in honor of Boobquake.  I just had to share! =)

I wonder if this offends the prophet (pizza be upon him)? I have a theory that he preferred flat-chested women because they looked more pre-pubescent. *cough* (Oh, no she di’ n’t!)
