The Obama Avalanche
AmericanThinker.com ^ | 6/8/2013 | Cindy Simpson

Posted on 06/08/2013 6:32:44 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

And while we're continuing to learn that the IRS scandal involved much more than some rogue agents from Cincinnati, it's not difficult to envision other similar incidents, with other government bureaucrats, armed and energized with a mere wink or nod. Although there probably exists no smoking gun smudged with Obama fingerprints, his henchmen acted like Barney Fife with a bullet in their pockets.

But now, all the president's yes men who said "yes" are noticing that the shadow of the Obama image may not stretch far enough to cover their backs. The holes in Obama's transparency promises have allowed some light to shine on some unattractive truths. Lackeys have become vulnerable and disillusioned, making skepticism extremely contagious. The truth flushed down the media's memory holes has finally clogged them up, and murky backwater has started swirling around JournoList's ankles, chilling the thrill from running up their legs.

The little people are finding that votes don't translate into immunity from pink slips. Obama fundraiser shields prove ineffective against pitchforks aimed at "the rich." Newspapers downsize and television ratings slip. Union labels fail to prevent outsourcing hazards. And the grim reaper of Obamacare could care less about the D on the yard sign when he puts the huge bill in the mailbox and comes a-knocking at all the little doors.

Dr. Seuss covered this subject in his book, “Yertle, The Turtle,” penned during the hideous reign of Adolph Hitler. Everyone should read it.

The odumbo admin. continues to promote that “The Won” has no fingerprints on anything. I'm not buying it. He is the most corrupt president we have ever had in the history of this once great nation. He clearly stated he would fundamentally change this nation and he has. Unless he is removed via impeachment or whatever other avenue there is, we are a doomed nation.

Yes, and you haven't heard much, or anything, about Benghazi lately have you?

Ding Dong the Witch Ain’t Dead Yet...

One of my favorite thoughts of late came from the Ulsterman Report:

The press, who have helped create this utopian monster, went to bed thinking they were journalists only to wake up the next morning and find they are nothing more than mere useful idiots.

If he kisses and makes up with them this is over for good.

Dennis Kucinich caved and supported Obamacare after a ride in Air Force 1, even though he read the thing and knew it was awful. When Ohio's stupid Republicans redistricted the state, they made one Cleveland district instead of two, and stupidly threw it to the black neighborhoods with their finageling. Obama did nothing to save Kucinich, or give him a job.

Why do I say stupid? If not, it's a deal with Obama about whom to save. A district that Kucinich could've won could easily be competitive for 'pubs in the future.

What's my point? Caucasian democrats should be very afraid. If very stupid or very lazy (or both) Susan Rice can be promoted and competent dems (even if we don't agree with them politically) are thrown under the bus, they just better assume that Obama isn't going to have 'his people" take the fall.

What do you call the Health Care Snitch line, set up on the White House web site during Obama's first year in office? The president's own web site asked citizens to forward emails they received from those who opposed obamacare to a white house email address. If that's not a call to single out opponents of his regime, then I don't know what is! If citizens were to forward information on other citizens, why wouldn't IRS bureaucrats be expected to likewise forward information on citizens who oppose obama's agenda?

I don’t think anyone in the turtle stack has burped yet.

I’m very skeptical of the likes of Eldridge Cummings.... show for the sheeple? Still flying cover for the dear leader? He is doing the same thing dear reader is.... acting shocked and outraged over something he co-presided over.

The clown in the White House is obviously stupid and "in over his head."

The real issue which should direct any search for wrongdoers being: who are the people directing the The Office of the President? Actual names and interconnections both within the United States and abroad.

In commenting about not having his finger prints on anything, Rove (cannot believe I am quoting him) prarphrasingly said he may not have his fingerprints on anything but he used his dog whistle to give the instructions.

What this asshat has done is put the true believers in charge and then he goes on his speech giving tours wherein he demonizes people or groups which is the signal for his minions to take them out. No fingerprints as in no direct orders, more like a vulcan mind meld. He demonized the tea party, remember called them tea baggers; message sent, received by the IRS and they began their illegal ostrazicing of them. He calls Fox fake news, message sent; his minions all label Fox as Faux News. on and on.

Any change someone can mistakenly set the altimeters too low on AF1 when he flies across the country??? Mt Rushmore here we come at 650MPH at 8000 feet.

Kucinich was a holdout because the bill wasn't awful enough for him. IIRC he had an amendment related to single payer that he wanted before he'd vote yes on the bill. Obama supposedly reassured him on AF1 that the language Bernie Sandlers already got into the bill was similar to the amendment Kucinich wanted, except that single payer wouldn't be on the table until after 2017. Therefore Kucinich was going to get what he wanted, just not as soon as he wanted it.

Obama did nothing to save Kucinich, or give him a job.

Thank goodness!

My point is that saving Kucinich in the obvious collaberation in the process would've set up a district that had the potential to go 'pub in the future. Instead they set up a district that wastes conservative votes while it has too much minority to ever be lost to the minority community.

And even if you dislike Kucinich's politics, he was a much better HOR rep than the woman we're stuck with now, who only cares about gang summits and getting black people more jobs in the administration (huh?)

“The Won” has no fingerprints on anything.

Nor has any documentaion turned up signed by Adolph Hitler saying “Exterminate all the Jews...”

The fish rots from the head.

Cut off the head...

The IRS scandal included visits by the FBI to some of the victims. One victim said that HS visited her also. Is there any part of the Federal Government that is honest and it looks like King Obama has managed to convert it. To What? You tell me. I have the answer but if you are too dumb to see it, why should I bother. While America played with themselves they have been transformed.

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

I think Herman Goering transmitted the "Final Solution" verbally.

Obama is the affirmative action Hitler. A more incompetent copy of the real thing, getting his position due to guilt over slavery and Democrat caused racism; see "Liberal Fascism" by Jonah Goldberg

What a stupid article, what a stupid statement. Obama is President of the United States and CIC. It is his administration and the buck stops at the WH. The idea that we have to find his fingerprints on a smoking gun to ascribe responsibility buys into this leftist nonsense that Obama is a victim and innocent bystander. No other President has ever been given such a pass. The author of this piece is an idiot.

Pretty loud dog whistle if you ask me. In the first video on the snitch line, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office says it's her job to "keep track of all the disinformation." Not some, all. Then she pulls up Drudge, with the URL clearly visible. Below the video the 2nd paragraph states, "Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help."

Granted I don't hear in the same range that dogs do, but that sounds like a request for all hands on deck to help monitor conservative opposition, a job she admits is too big for the White House alone.

He is yelling “fire”!
Not in a movie theater but to his army with guns loaded and aimed toward anyone who opposes him!
The fact that his tactics worked with his Bc has just empowered him to continue to use the same Alinsky methods on others.
He has bullied America into submission Until someone strong says no more and provided leadership those cowering will continue to remain in fear.
It is why so many are cheering on Trey G

AND everyone should be familiarizing themselves with history on how Hitler gained all of his power.

Forgot to add that I pray that no physical harm comes to the man. The left would turn him into a martyr.

FWIW, I just think that Kucinich was grifted. He was made to feel important and promised all sorts of stuff about health care that wasn’t in the bill.

I think we have to agree that Liberal Fascism is a seminal book.

Incidentally, both Jonah Goldberg's book, the section on Planned Parenthood's Magaret Sanger's view of birth control, and Ann Coulter have turned my views against abortion or more pro life, as they say. These two authors do not like each other either.
