Greeting to all and welcome new friends to the EastWing.
Now if you were one of those who succumbed to the news hype last Friday Evening of the prospect of seeing upwards of 1,000 meteors per hour between 11 PM and early Saturday AM, till about 2 o’clock or so, sorry about that. Ya didn’t hear it from me or anyone else who watched the stars or a regular basis.
In the actual stargazing world only one person with any real credentials proposed this 1,000 meteors per hour possibility. Now keep in mind this same party has become somewhat famous among stargazers for his ability to make bad projections. Most everyone else were thinking maybe an increase of 2 – 10 additional meteors per hour. It turned out closer to the 2 additional per hour overall.
But what story did the news media latch on to? Yep, 1000 meteors per hour. Just another example of never confusing fact with news reporting.
Along with the whole country, at the EastWing, we’re shocked, saddened and appalled as the events surrounding the Veterans Administration Health Care System continue to come to light. What makes this even more of a tragedy is the way the President used the woes within the Veterans Administration in his original campaign for office.
No less than 10 times did Senator Obama identify the need to bring changes into the VA. He even went as far as identifying the problems within the Veterans Administration as a major reason for his campaign for the office of the President of the United States. Said he would surly fix the mess at the VA as the top priory. The mess at the VA got worse and the newly elected President who said he would fix the mess, well, he never looked that way again.
It was three weeks into the explosion of the VA Scandal and our President had yet to even comment on the matter. As the whole country boiled over due to the shameful lack of medical treatment to the American Veterans, the president remained silent. The same type of silence employed on every scandal that has beset his administration. Turns out the President only became aware of the matter at the VA from news reports, or so says the official mouth piece for the President, the president’s press secretary.
It was at the 23rd day that the President spoke to the nation on the VA tragedy. Said he was “Madder than hell”. A week or so prior the Secretary of the VA, Eric Shinseki, said he was “Mad as hell”. Guess “madder than hell” trumps “mad as hell”. Don’t know that for sure, just supposing it to be so.
Like every other scandal that’s rocked this administration, the President finally gets around to saying he’s outraged and is going to get to the bottom of it. And true to form, the VA Scandal is playing along the very same lines heard so many times before.
The President said he didn’t have all the facts, would have to wait until all the investigation was completed, maybe in a month or so. Said he’d sent the number 2 man on the White House Staff to make sure it was done right.
Now that move alone, shows the President’s lack of concern for the issue. He views the VA matter the very same as every other scandal to bubble up thru the political crap that now occupies the most powerful office in the world. Just handle it in such a way to cause minimal political fallout.
And, oh yeah, the President said once again, they’ll be held accountable. The problem with that old statement is it’s been used so much, it’ kinda like chicken Little and the sky falling. There is no accountability in the Obama White House. No accountability at the IRS. No accountability at the State Department. No accountability at the NSA.
Remember being told that those responsible for the death of the Americans in Benghazi would be found and “held accountable” for their actions? To this day, not a single person has been identified, much less held accountable.
The longer President Obama stays in office, the more it becomes apparent how utterly unqualified he truly is for the position which he holds. Having no expectative management experience what so ever, my goodness, this man never even managed a candy store. And now finds himself in charge of United States Government, and the de facto leader of the free world.
All the while having never been fully vetted to the American People. Have you seen the President’s college transcript? I’d sure like to see what grade he got in management. I know two books President Obama read because he referred to them in his own writings. And interesting enough, Hillary Clinton done her college thesis on the same works.
The author read by both President Obama and Hillary Clinton was Saul Alinsky. Now many of my friends may not have heard of Saul Alinsky, but believe me, Both Obama and Hillary Clinton have not only heard, but read and implemented the teaching of Saul Alinsky. Ya see, Saul Alinsky wrote the book for community organizers. The following two paragraphs are taken directly from
from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, describing the life and works of Saul Alinsky.
Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals is the late work of community organizer Saul D. Alinsky, and his last book, published in 1971 shortly before his death. His goal for the Rules for Radicals was to create a guide for future community organizers to use in uniting low-income communities, or “Have-Nots”, in order to empower them to gain social, political, and economic equality by challenging the current agencies that promoted their inequality. Within it, Alinsky compiled the lessons he had learned throughout his personal experiences of community organizing spanning from 1939-1971 and targeted these lessons at the current, new generation of radicals.
Divided into ten chapters, each chapter of Rules for Radicals provides a lesson on how a community organizer can accomplish the goal of successfully uniting people into an active organization with the power to effect change on a variety of issues. Though targeted at community organization, these chapters also touch on a myriad of other issues that range from ethics, education, communication, and symbol construction to nonviolence and political philosophy.
How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky
“There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state”. The first is the most important.
1) Healthcare – Control healthcare, and you control the people.
2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4) Gun Control- Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
6) Education -Take control of what people read and listen to take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
Wow ! Just our luck, we have a community organizer out of Chicago who can read a great speech from a teleprompter, and the fellow buys into the teachings of Soul Alinsky. Then we elect him President of the United States. Now before you start to get crazy and call me a racist, go back and re-read those eight items up above. Sure sounds like the Obama Agenda to me.
Point out one item of the eight that is not part of the liberal agenda being pushed by the President and being supported by the likes of Harry Reid in the United States Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the U S House of Representatives. No matter how much they try to hide it, the current liberal agenda driving the movement is taken right out of the Saul Alinsky play book.
And so the President went to Afghanistan on Sunday to tell the troops he was proud of them. Can’t help but wonder was it genuine admiration or just another political move to divert attention from the VA disaster. Your call on that one.
Stay safe in Afghanistan.
