A Heroic Example Our Leaders and Americans in General Can Learn From

I really wanted and in fact was starting to go into one of my tirades as to the numerous scandals that are now a part of the Obama administration. Fast and Furious, the Solyndra green scandal and of course what I said was the worse off all of it, the overt open racism being shown by this administration, the propaganda industry known as the MSM as well as various elected so called leaders. As such, as I was doing some more research to bolster my contentions, it became more apparent than ever that in this president, there is not the first trace of leadership ability. This also of course trickles down to Holder, Reid, Waters and so many countless others who profess their “care” for this country and its people when in fact they despise everything we as a people stand for. Leadership is so much more than just lies and false promises, although you could not prove this by the actions of this president. However, a person can be judged by who they associate with and their actions with the people they choose to aid them, Of course in this case, the record is clear.

My main problem with this is that I sense not only a hatred for everything we stand for as a country, but in point of fact I see an elitist press as well as our elected officials openly lying to the public. The hate of the racism being espoused by so many and being met with silence by the President is bone chilling. And the correct word is hate. Make no mistake about it. I honestly believe there are two many folks who don’t give a damn about not only this country, but their fellow man in general. It is and always has been all about them. Jesse, Sharpton, Obama, left biased journalists, it doesn’t matter as long as they keep their so called power and the spotlight is on them. Real everyday Americans be damned. This is the real facts of life here now.

So as I was saying earlier, I was researching so I could write what I hoped would be a blistering but factual slam at the cancer I see that is part of what is destroying this country. Lies and open hatred and in my eyes a lack of basic humanity has gotten me almost to the point of despair as I feel we have for all practical purposes gone off the deep end as to our chances of survival as the United States of America. The inner enemy I felt has just about taken over. Then, I stumbled across the story below on a site I follow, All American Blogger. Just as one thinks our Great American Society is coming to an end as we know it, there occurs a miracle of goodwill, sportsmanship, faith or whatever one wants to call it to remind us that this is what we are as a people! If only our leaders understood this!!! Josh Ripley, the young man described below does understand and is someone we should all aspire to be!

Hero: 16 Year Old Runner Carries Bloodied Competitor A Quarter Mile to Safety
By Duane Lester at All American Blogger:

“When 16 year old Josh Ripley came around a corner during a 5K cross country meet and saw a freshman leaning against a fence bleeding, he didn’t think about the race.
He thought about getting him medical attention:

“I had heard this scream, and as I rounded a corner, he came into view,” Josh said. “He was against a fence holding his ankle, and it was bleeding pretty badly.
“I picked him up and ran with him in my arms. I asked if I could say a prayer for him, and he said that was fine. And I just tried to reassure him that everything would be OK.”

It was quite a sight when the two runners finally rounded into the view of their coaches. There was the 6-foot-5, 185 pound Josh, from Andover High School, cradling the 5-foot-5, 100 pound Mark, a freshman at Lakeville South H.S., in his arms.

“I am waiting for all my kids to go running by, and there is no Josh, no Josh,” his coach, Scott Clark, said. “I was wondering, ‘What was going on? Why was he so far back?

“Then I see Josh. … He’s got the kid in his arms, like you would carry a youngster.”
Josh dropped Mark off and then got back in the race. He was dead last, but passed 50 kids by the end of the race to finish 211th.

It turns out that the kid he helped needed some serious attention to that leg. He had been spiked and the wound required 20 stitches and a walking boot.

“I really feel I just did the right thing,” he said. “Any of my teammates would have done the same thing. It wasn’t an act of heroism. It was an act of kindness that I know I needed to accomplish.”

Most acts of heroism are acts of kindness. Well done, son. Well done.”

In this young man, we see what not only a true leader is, not only what a hero is, but in fact we see the very essence of what makes real Americans what they are. Here we have a young man, who gave of himself for his fellow man. He prayed to his God, adhering to his faith as all good men do. His humanity took over and he cast aside his own aspirations. In every quality, this young man shows us what a man is and from my point of view, he is thousands of times the man (or woman as I am speaking of character here) our President, so many elected officials and the members of the MSM can ever hope to be. Character, something of which there is a complete lack of in people who we stupidly call leaders and advisers!

Josh, you give us hope! Thank You from one who now and then seems to think there isn’t any hope left. With great young men and women like this, we can in fact save this country. We still have the nucleus of a great country. We can still be the America we were always meant to be.

Jobs? The Real Scandal! Racism At Its Worse!

In the movie “Dave”, there is a point in which Dave, the fake President wants to promote his job’s plan, but in effect no one will listen due to a scandal within the administration. Now Dave wasn’t part of this scandal, but as he is pretending to be the President, he is ensnared by it, the media and adversaries latch unto it and in effect a goes plan goes by the wayside as scandal is all that matters. Thus was the premise of a movie. And thus I am reminded of the realities of today.

We see now a President in real life who is now “focused on” the dismal job problem here in the U.S. Let’s forget the question of “where the hell have you been the last 32 months on this you blithering idiot?” and look at another facet of this. As I am rather cynical at best when it comes to this President and his true intentions, can one make the supposition that the “Jobs Program” is just a way to turn attention away from the various scandals that this administration is now being shown as being involved in? And if so, why hasn’t the MSM on the whole picked up on this (mind you, there are some, even an ABC reporter surprisingly enough who have) raced into scandal mania nirvana? Unlike “Dave” where the scandal stole the attention as would normally be the case, we have the Jobs Bill, hopefully in the view of the lefties, taking attention away from the scandals! And what scandals they really truly are!
Listening to the President this morning, one as usual only heard the same tired rhetoric and pandering to his base, nothing more, nothing less! Personally, I want to point out the scandals because in his Class warfare attack this morning, we might have the biggest scandal of all. A President who in fact is destroying the very foundation of this country’s economy!

Up front we have the “Green Industry” scandal, highlighted by Solyndra Inc. and other Green companies” as is usual, we have the cover up in which administration officials deny any involvement with the rewarding of stimulus funds, etc to these companies>. Oops! Here comes a bankruptcy and almost ½ billion dollars lost! But “We know nothing!” While I’m not going to go crazy citing things, here are two or three instances.

“Emails released Thursday night show the Obama administration privately worried about the effect of a default by Solyndra Inc. on the president’s re-election campaign.

“The optics of a Solyndra default will be bad,” an official from the Office of Management and Budget wrote in a Jan. 31 email to a senior OMB official. “The timing will likely coincide with the 2012 campaign season heating up.”

Gotta love this next one! “The four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.”

And of course we even get a Rom sighting here! Convenient lack of memory here: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says that he doesn’t recall the Obama administration’s loan to Solyndra, the bankrupt solar panel manufacturer that received more than $500 million in taxpayer loans and is now under investigation.
Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, told local radio station WLS that he was not going to talk about the company.

“I don’t actually remember that or know about it. So, what I’m dealing is with what I’m dealing with here today,” Emanuel told a reporter.

More from the Daily Caller:
E-mail communications from the White House obtained by the House Energy and Commerce Committee point to more involvement in the deal than perhaps Emanuel would care to remember.

The vice president was scheduled to announce the closure of the Solyndra deal on Sept. 4, and several e-mails show pressure from the White House to approve the loan.
In one e-mail, an assistant to Emanuel wrote on Aug. 31, 2009 to the Office of Management and Budget about the administration’s upcoming announcement on Solyndra and asked whether “there is anything we can help speed along on OMB side.”
Suffice it to say anyone can follow this easily and it is a scandal of major proportions, at least to those who aren’t lapping up Obama’s favor! Still, this pales in some ways compared to the “fast and Furious” gun running scandal! Here we have the Attorney General as well as the white House not only denying but in fact stonewalling an investigation of something that has resulted in numerous deaths including a border agent! Holder denied knowledge of this even after a speech he had made citing the very program a year before was played to the public! Gets better though!

From the LA Times:
Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.
Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.

The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.

“ ATF Director: Holder Obstructing ‘Fast and Furious’ Probe”

"If his account is accurate, then ATF leadership appears to have been effectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand," Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder. "That approach distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation."

The cover up is afoot, and quite familiar: Fast and Furious Follows Watergate Template”

Again, I’ve discussed this before and the examples of the lies and cover up are there for all to see! As stated earlier, people died because of these actions and the Attorney General as well as the PResdient, the men sworn to uphold the law of the land are in fact fighting every way they can to cover up their actions. Pure and simple fact here kids!

Actually, the two examples cited above in many ways are being cast as “politics as usual” and of course only touched by the propaganda industry known as the MSM! Beyond a doubt, the actions by the administration are in my view are of a criminal and for that matter Anti-American nature and should be dealt with harshly, something that as we now well know will never be the case when it is an ultra anti-American ideal administration in charge! But quite honestly, these scandals are small potatoes compared to the worse scandal of them all.

Today, once again, the President resorted to class warfare in his Jobs speech! For those with an ounce of common sense however, it is not only the class warfare aspect that is troubling enough, but in fact it is the overt racism being shown by the Democrats and other lefties that is the biggest scandal of all! This administration, the MSM and all others involved are inciting racial hatred the like of which many cannot even imagine! Examples:

“The interesting question is: What is it about this president that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the Office of the President? Why do Republicans think this president is unpresidential and should dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008 or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin. This is an extraordinary reaction to a normal sequence of events,” MSNBC contributor Richard Wolffe said on “The Last Word.”

REP. ANDRE CARSON, (D), INDIANA: Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. (audience members reply, "Yes!") Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party would love to see you and me- I'm sorry, Tamron- hanging on a tree. (audience members reply, "Yes!") Some of them right now in Congress are comfortable with where we were 50 and 60 years ago.
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” said Waters. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.“

Of course, can’t not have something from our boy Jesse: “The tea party opposing Obama, Jackson said, should be called the “Fort Sumter Tea Party that sought to maintain states’ rights and slavery.”

And just today we have this drivel from the Congressional Black Caucus! Via The Political Pistachio:

“Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."

Cleaver acknowledged that some of the things members of his caucus say might not be in the best interests of the “aggressive agenda” he said he is seeking to develop as chairman.
“Maxine Waters represents central Los Angeles first and she has to represent her constituents first and she’s going to say things in order to represent them,” he said.”

This is a scandal that is eroding every bit of progress made in the last century or more! From the same Political Pistachio post we have the following!

Character Matters:

"In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate -- look to his character..." -- Noah Webster, Letters to a Young Gentleman Commencing His Education, 1789

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. -- Martin Luther King, I have a Dream, 1963

Now, let’s look closely at the facts. We have the CBC now openly avowing their stance as to open racist hate towards the whites! We have seen the Justice Department at the command of AG Holder refuse to prosecute the New Black Panther hate movement when it came to PROVEN racist voter intimidation! We have members of this administration. Congress, the MSM and others yelling ”Racist” whenever one says the words Illegal Alien”! We have anyone who disagrees with this President and his Anti-American Soviet Style Socialist policies and plan for income redistribution branded as Racist! We have what is called Flash Mobs, black mobs attacking White people, documented and proven to have occurred! The list goes on and on. And what is the biggest scandal here? The absolute silence form our President, the Attorney General and the MSM as to the open Racism that is in fact being ok’d by the upper levels of power, chief among these, the President and his Attorney General! Silence! Not a word! And why not? Easy. He’d piss off his voting base. The hell with the good of the country!

Jobs? The economy? Terror? As important at these things are, they are all being used by this administration to cover up their real scandals! The silence as to the overt Racism being put forward by his party and the MSM speaks volumes to the cancer that is this administration! It is an indictment of a President and his lackeys as to a complete dereliction of duty as it relates to the racial harmony of this nation! This President, with his silence on the overt racism being espoused by those who support him is a traitor to his job and his country. Furthermore he is an insult to the memory of people like MLK ! Silence in this case is not golden! Silence in this case appears to be a core hatred for the very principles we as a people hope to live under! And that in itself is a scandal for the ages!!

What Speech? I Heard Nothing! I Saw Nothing! I Know Nothing!

After a nice break, I’m back and hopefully with a vengeance. I’ve done a lot of thinking this last 4 weeks, trying to not only put the disaster that is this current administration, but also this entire country’s complete loss of direction into some kind of perspective. I stepped back to not only refresh my mind, but in fact I had hoped I could find a way to see something, anything good as to what is actually going on and in turn, not go off on one of my mad eyed tangents. Alas, that was not to be. Between the horrible racist accusations, the “Fast and Furious” cover up, Backdoor Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (including Uncle Omar) and of course the fiasco that is this President’s fiscal/economic/ or “whatever policy”, all I’ve managed to do is get even more irate at the situation and in turn find I in fact have to vent and for that matter loudly and as is my wont sometimes crassly. So, let’s go for a ride kids! If nothing else, I know for sure I have to be who I am, and stand true to my convictions.

I mentioned 3 things above that I feel warrant comment and before I get to my main thrust of today, I want to add a fourth (all of which I will be posting on over the next two days). That is the situation in Egypt and the break in and ransacking of the Israeli Embassy. No surprise here! Hope you’re happy Barack and company! And ooh, we’ve expressed our “displeasure” at this. They’re shaking over there and at the UN over that for sure! NOT! Israel is in the crosshairs and this administration is oblivious to this and any other Islamic action against her! Arab Spring my ass!
Now, for my main thought of today: As all know, we had another wasted hour Thursday night in which, according to the Obama Pravda propaganda machine he is now completely focused on jobs! Before my thoughts on this, I share from Scared Monkeys the following which pretty much sums it up in a nice way (as compared to my upcoming tirade).

… What was the market’s reaction a day after Barack Obama’s more of the same class warfare, jobs speech … the Dow lost 303.68 points, 2.7% and fell below 11,000 to 10,992.13.

Now I can sit here and go on and on as to “it’s the same warmed over Rhetoric” or “it’s just another campaign speech” or whatever! All that would do is get us to the same place we’re at right now. Still, for grins and giggles, (and the fact my evil twin is pounding at my head to get out) here are some thoughts on “Barack’s Jobapalooza” or “How Too Appear Completely Out Of Touch With Reality”!
“Pass this bill!” Over and over! Good God, does this idiot think we don’t understand his words? Moron Alert! What bill? Excuse me, but is this another pass it to find out what’s in it thing? More spending! A Jobs Bank? More money for infrastructure? Extend unemployment benefits? Wasn’t that what the last trillion dollars or so was supposed to do? Spark the economy. Create more jobs? Take care of folks until they could take care of themselves. What exactly am I missing here?

Of course, our beloved leader couldn’t stop with just more spending! No sir! We had to have our daily dose of class warfare thrown in! Can’t let a speech go by without taking another shot at putting everyone at each other’s throats! He sure managed as usual to demonize business in general and reinforce his support for the corrupt unions and their practices. Funny, not one word about the Boeing situation. How many jobs is his NLRB preventing from being given out as they persue this suit against a company that “left the reservation” in their eyes for greener pastures? How many Mr. President? Hell, you couldn’t answer that if you wanted to as you probably can’t hear or see what’s going on what with your head stuck so far up Trumpka’s you know what! As always, you are who you associate with and it was apparent just in who was with your wife!

The administration now says 9.2% unemployment will be the norm for the next few years. Not my words! And of course, they have to blame the usual culprits. Nice not to here’ Bush” the other night, but as usual he made it very clear Conservatives are the enemy of the people! “It’s the Republicans! They blocked everything I tried to do.” Blah Blah Blah!

What I didn’t hear was any substance, just worn out Bull! How is one to believe he is now “focused on jobs and they economy” when in fact he is prescribing more of the same failed policies that are destroying it? Obamacare is a costly boondoggle! Not to worry, it’s the cornerstone of his economic recovery! Ask him! He’s stupid enough to believe it just as he believes in redistribution of wealth rather than self responsibility and incentive. That is fact!

We must assume Comrade Obama knows his stuff though. After all, he had this Simpson/Bowles study that had recommendation to try to fix this. OOPS! Didn’t fit his beliefs I guess as our brilliant leader basically said “stuff it!” Shouldn’t worry though! After all, he talks down to and addresses the entire electorate as morons or worse. As such, we have to believe him We’re too dumb to figure out finances on a grand scale. Government is different than real life everyday finances. I know., he said so!

What happens when a leader becomes insignificant? In three years we have lost the respect of the free world in general. We have turned our back on our allies! We watch as the crazed Islamists openly defy every tenet we hold dear and are told to “understand”! And now, we are supposed to believe someone in every move he has made has finished, (As I have said in the past, many on both sides are responsible. He just openly show his anti-capitalist nature) destroying our country’s finances? Millions of jobs have been lost thanks to his policies, policies that were pushed through a compliant super majority legislative branch. Policies that were not vetted by that branch! And let’s not forget the fact that the Democratic Senate to this day has refused to address a budget! All lead to uncertainty in the business community!
There’s no inflation. Must be true, he through his propaganda machine says so. Yet business and individuals are paying more through the nose for fuel, raw materials, etc! Yet he proposes as usual to continue raping the very folks who pay most of the taxes! We all know the figures! We all know over 50% of the populace do not pay a cent in federal income tax! Yet, this hate monger chooses as usual to pit the taxpayers against those who don’t pay. Class warfare at its finest! But the MSM says it needs more fairness as he says! This of course comes under the heading of incredible BULL!

Bottom line here! The man ain’t got a plan! After the debt ceiling debacle we got an unconstitutional panel to decide our financial future. Our leader chose to go on vacation and fed us the “I will make an important jobs speech when I return: line. We were told he would put forward a plan1 I didn’t hear any plan I did hear something about let’s spend more money we don’t have now and sometime in the future I’ll tell you how we’ll pay for it! The man who is so focused on jobs and the economy sure couldn’t be rushed to come up with something to fix it! And in turn, he hasn’t in fact come up with anything now! The man ain’t got a plan!
Now that I really think about it, I didn’t hear anything of substance from this pathetic facsimile of a leader just the usual garbage! I would have been better off going to bed!

One last word here! I notice the usual RINOS coming up with their “we must compromise with the President” B.S. stand! Grow some cahoonies guys! No compromise on the basic principles that built this country! No compromise as to Socialist government programs as wanted by this clown! No compromise with anyone, be it the President, Senate, House or whatever when that compromise can and will hurt the country. As always, you morons put your own sorry asses first, worried about your jobs and power. Tell us the truth! We can take it. Once you do that, look at that truth and act on it as you should. Of course, this would entail everyone of you corrupt morons to actually adhere to an ethic and principle much less actually putting aside your power lust for the good of the people! Crap! I forgot, that’s what you’re in government for. You and the moron we call President are in it for the people! How could I be so stupid as to forget that? After all, you all tell us you’re about us, not you, especially the leftist in charge! Lies are truth to you , be it the economy or apparently anything concerning the good of the United States in general!

And that goes for the President and his speech the other night. All lip service but not a damned thing said! And to think someone actually said he is the greatest orator of our time! I’d wager the likes of Stephen Douglass (a Democrat BTW: I probably have to wonder if many have been taught the Lincoln/Douglas debates though) are rolling over in their graves being compared to the mind numbed robot that is our supposed leader!
Wake me up when he says anything I should hear! As of now, he’s not even a broken record anymore, merely the proverbial screeching fingernail on the chalkboard. And that fact alone bodes badly for our future!
