MORT’S meanderings

“All vets are mentally ill in some way . . .”
The full statement made by Senator Dianne Feinstein was - - “All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.” Such a ludicrous statement by a senior U. S. Senator, one of the ‘esteemed 100’, typifies the degree of disconnect that exists in the minds of so many of our elected representatives.
The Senate has far more than a few Members who are infinitely more ‘mentally ill’ than the worst-case veterans under treatment in the wards at Walter Reed Medical Center. For example:  Stupido Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, upChuck Schumer, the demented Dianne Feinstein, the egomaniacal Barbara Boxer, space-cadet Bill Nelson, Looney Toons Durbin  - - all, leftist Liberals who speak out loudly & proudly on behalf of  the party in the majority, the Senate Democrats.  Of what benefit to the general welfare of the American people, can representatives such as these, possibly be?  The answer is of course – ‘NONE’.
They, and their ultra-leftist ilk in the Senate, only add to the confusion, the misdirection, the waste and the corruption that exemplifies everything that is wrong, wrong, wrong – with this Legislative body.  No up-or-down votes; no cooperation with the House; no annual budget as it is their obligation to produce, under the law - - nothing but vitriol coming across the podium from the soft-spoken lunatic Reid.  In addition to being the chief  road-blockhead in the Senate, he is grossly repugnant as a human being.  What a combination to be leading the ‘Greatest Debating Society on Earth’.   
Sorry, Dianne baby – guns aren’t the problem.  Our problem is the shits & shots we’ve elected to run (make that, ‘ruin’) our country.  It is the re-elected Big Shit in the White House and the many-times re-elected Big Shots in the Senate that are creating the maelstrom that is actively destroying our safety, security and our freedoms in this country - not to mention the dismemberment of the Legislative Branch of our Federal Government. Guns, for your info Dianne-dear, are inanimate objects.  They can do no harm unless they are loaded, aimed and fired at someone, by someone.  Self-centered, self-indulgent Senators on the other hand, don’t need to have guns in their hands in order to create mayhem and do universal, massive harm to our citizenry.  They can do it by acting stupid.  
The only things more stupid than those few mentioned above and their like-minded cohorts in the Senate – are those clueless, extremely careless & irresponsible voters who elect and then re-elect, dangerous fools such as these, to represent them.
Is there any hope?  Will we ever learn?  It doesn’t look very promising at this juncture, does it?

The Emperor Has No Clothes!

This was one of the stories written by that famous author, Hans Christian Andersen, about a naïve ruler who believed something that he was not, and his adherents were to blinded of him to tell him that he was full of dog-doo ( a refined way of saying he was full of it).

Most frequently today, the metaphor involves a situation wherein the overwhelming (usually the underpowered masses) majority of observers willingly share in a collective ignorance of an obvious fact, despite individually recognizing the absurdity of the emperor’s actions.

That phrase is often used in political and social contexts for any obvious truth denial by the majority despite the evidence of their eyes, especially when proclaimed by the government.

Could this definition of the phrase realistically be applied to our present president, Barack Hussein Obama? Well, let’s take a look and see if there is a correlation between what he says and what he does and the “unnatural” ardor of his supporters who would seem to overlook any chink in his armor. It seems they really see that the “Emperor has no clothes”, but for the overall good of the Democratic Party, they perceive him as fully clothed, even though he is as naked as a J-bird.

Since his inauguration in Jan. 2009, he has never gotten off the campaign trail, he has shown very little leadership as president, and has only offered up a regurgitated array of political rhetoric by spouting off platitudes that he had poll tested beforehand, before his hand-picked audiences.

He has stated that his Administration would be the most transparent in history, he and it has not been. He said he would get the country back working, but he has not, as unemployment has been stuck around 8% or above for over 4 ½ years. He said that taxes would not rise for 95% of Americans due to his economic policies, but as taxes rise on everyone, his words ring hollow. He said that it was wrong to target Conservative and religious groups by the IRS, but nothing has been done as a few high ranking IRS officials have taken the 5th Amendment and still are on the payroll. The other thorns in his side, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and the NSA snooping on reporters, have all been called “phony” scandals by Obama when, in fact, they are real and ongoing. He has started to lose credibility, even among some of his most ardent supporters ( ex: the unions).

You can’t keep saying the same things over and over again when reality, in real life, flies in the face of what he is saying and what he wants you to believe.

The economy is not in a robust recovery, no matter what he says. Al-Queda has not been defeated, no matter what he says. The deficit has not been cut, no matter what he says. The (Un) Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) is not bringing down health care insurance premiums, no matter what he says.

In other words, the “Emperor has no clothes”, no matter what he says ( or what the Obama Zombies say).

Supreme scrutiny

To me and a significant number of others, it is increasingly evident
the Supreme Court ignores black and white for gray areas with
loop holes to politically manipulate constitutional law, discounting
the laws of nature as a way to disenfranchise the will of the people.
One case in point...., opposition to California's proposition 8,
opening the door to shattering eons of traditional Judeo-Christian
values and moral behavior.

Rising like an evil Phoenix from the ashes of Sodom and Gomorrah
is a wave of self interest advocates, in epidemic proportion,
infesting our lives; not unlike,"The Invasion of the Body Snatchers,"
with support from media and egocentric progressives, working to
shake a moral code from its foundation with political correctness,
 that took centuries to achieve. The Norman Rockwell image of
 America is so distasteful to them.

On the forefront is abortion on demand for indiscreet behavior, and
the group who wants special privileges because of an imbalance in
their chromosome structure.

They have become very forceful, with assistance by some
government officials, to exercise their will against our religious
 beliefs, demanding we violate them so they can achieve their

The Supreme Court justices have an obligation to be impartial,
regardless who was responsible for their appointment.

MORT’s meanderings

John Kerry (rhymes with fairy)  Secretary of Statements.
In this era of Governmental crises, chaos & corruption created by the policy dictates of his pathological sickness, President Hussein Obama has selected other sickees & incompetents to do his bidding. Their raison d’ etre consists in the main, of enabling his political lunacy.
One of those picked from a large cadre’ of astonishingly sub-standard career creeps, is John Kerry.  Obama considers Kerry to be fully-qualified to serve as his Secretary of State.  And why not?  Kerry (who served in Viet Nam precisely, 4 months + 12 days, y’know) is by Obama’s standards, a certified war hero.   Yeah, right.
Upon his discharge from the U. S. Navy, Kerry testified before a Congressional Committee about horrific atrocities he alleged had been committed by members of our Armed Forces against the enemy in Viet Nam..  I recall seeing that testimony on TV.  I also remember that as I watched it unfold, I had the weirdly odd feeling I was attending  a well-rehearsed performance being delivered by a totally-professional actor.  To be sure, John F. Kerry was a spell-binder.
Years later, while campaigning as the Democrat candidate for the Presidency, he touted his Viet Nam ‘experience’ as a major element in every speech he made.  Unable to tolerate this unabashed sham, a large number of Viet Nam veterans who had served in the same places at the same time as Kerry – and  who became known as, ‘Swiftboaters’ - rallied behind the authors of a book titled, “Unfit for Command”.  The book laid out chapter & verse with clear, undeniable, eye-witness accounts, the accurate history of Kerry’s 4 months + 12 days spent in Viet Nam. Over the years, I’ve made reference to this as his, ‘Immaculate Misconception’.  
When one is aware of what hundreds of former U.S. Navy ‘Swiftboaters’ had to say about Kerry’s actual participation in military actions, as opposed to the extraordinary decorations he garnered , it is difficult to reconcile the two. His psychological wounds are readily apparent; his physical wounds – not so much.
Now, as this is written, Secretary of Statements John F. Kerry, rather than addressing the red hot war of violence being conducted against our citizens and our embassies all across the Middle East, stays occupied with a far more lofty task.  He is totally committed to tilting that hoary old windmill – Peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian rabble.du jour.  A sadly laughable comparison comes to mind - that of the gangly John Kerry with the fabled old tilter of windmills, Don Quixote. A case of the blind emulating the blind.  To be slightly unkind, what we have here, is two of a kind.

Are We Sitting on an Energy “Goldmine”?

Oil was once called “black gold”, as fortunes were made every time an oil well was brought on line and produced oil for sale. It was the fuel that helped make the United States the #1 country in the world, economically and politically. That position is now being compromised by the present occupant of the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, who has been listening to the wrong people. Let me explain that indictment.

Since it’s founding as a viable energy source, oil has recently come under disrepute by the “environmental kook fringe” as being that “evil” energy source that is responsible for polluting and harming the planet. Not only has oil come under the scornful eyes of the Al Gore acolytes, but coal and even natural gas (fracking) has been lumped in with oil as a destructive influence on world pollution and climate. All emotional responses, no facts to back them up.

One could argue that at one time, these fossil fuels did contribute toward the increase in polluting and defiling our environment, but with the advent of advanced anti-polluting controls, our environment, today, in the United States, is practically pollution free.

With that being said, and while we await “clean energy” sources (wind, solar, and hydro etc.) becoming more affordable and being able to satisfy our need for enormous amounts of energy, why don’t we explore and tap our vast supply of natural sources of energy (oil, natural gas, and coal) that is sitting beneath our feet in the continental U.S. and off-shore? We could and should become the Saudi Arabia of the whole world if our politicians had the “cajones” to give the O.K. to unleash our exploration companies and give them the signal to go out and explore for more oil, natural gas, and coal. Think of all the jobs and added revenue to the U.S. and state treasuries that that sensible policy decision would provide?

The false narrative put out by the “environmental wacko’s”, that carbon dioxide (Co2) is a death inducing pollutant, just doesn’t hold up to scientific scrutiny. The facts are that carbon dioxide represents only 4 parts in 10,000, the smallest volume of any major atmospheric gas. Plants use carbon dioxide in photosynthesis and in return “exhales” oxygen. Humans inhale that oxygen and breathe out Co2. Carbon dioxide is a natural part of the atmosphere, just like water vapor. It is not a poison and, therefore, it is not a pollutant. In fact, “water vapor” is by far the earth’s most significant greenhouse gas, and without greenhouse gasses, life could not exist.

So, wise up politicians and citizens, don’t let the “doom and gloomers” dictate what we do in extracting or using energy. Our country needs to become the world’s premier energy exporter, and not be an energy importer, we should open up all our energy reserves, with proper anti-pollution controls, so that we can get our financial house in order and begin to give many of our unemployed people a chance to gain meaningful employment. Boom times are right around the corner, if only the energy obstructionists, including President Obama, will all get out of the way and let the free market prevail. It is a win-win situation.

Drill baby, drill!

Justice not served for some

The President's comments and those from other government officials,
fueled tensions and exacerbated the very delicate tragedy involving
Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

Not allowing character as evidence of Trayvon Martin was a politically
purposeful ploy of mis-portrayal by the state, and further complicating
the situation can be attributed to the Media for selling a false image of
Trayvon as a small, innocent choir boy for public consumption.

If it would have been another black teenager instead of Trayvon, you
can bet he would be one of the mischievous protesters, rumbling through
the streets, because it is in the mind set of too many black youths who
have been brainwashed into victimization by the Al Sharptons, Jessie
Jacksons, black caucus, and super liberal do gooders, who teach them
to carry a chip on their shoulder. Instead of exerting all their political
energy on this one single unfortunate incident, their efforts would be
better served focused on their dirty laundry they neglect in Chicago and

What George Zimmerman is guilty of is bad judgment, igniting a situation
that provoked the confrontation by this so called child of larger stature;
juiced up by the rhetoric of those mentioned above; reaching out with
violence instead of logic. The disproportionate development between brain
and muscle.

Each of us has a different degree of tolerance and when you are being
beaten up, it may be too late to wait and see where it's going, before
taking action.

Watching Fox News is a no no for the single minded liberal, so even
thinking of tuning in to Sean Hannity is treasonable, but on occasion he
features a forum of prominent citizens of color that is refreshing to

They are a group who do not consider themselves victims of society,
or deprived of opportunity. It shoots down the bigotry of white trash
superiority and ignorant blacks who label them Uncle Toms, because they
dare to blend into what America is about, with no excuses.

Young black men and women should expose themselves to their example
and try to emulate them instead of the pampered celebrities, athletes and
political advocates who want to keep America divided for personal gain.
For what purpose does it serve to prolong the false premise that it was
all racially motivated?

MORT’s meanderings

Att:  President Barack Hussein Obama
Every single time you step up to a microphone, which is every single day – often, several times  a day - you have a new plan to divide this nation into opposing economic or racial segments.  
Every day, you have a new plan to tax,tax,tax & spend,spend,spend  money that Americans no longer have.  $17 Trillion in debt – and you blame Republicans, George Bush and George Washington.  It is your policies that have failed, failed, failed.  Got that?  They’ve failed!
Every day, you introduce new regulations and controls that hobble the free-enterprise system and frustrate individual entrepreneurship.  Obamacare will guarantee the downfall of America.
Every day, you invite illegal violations of our borders and create new benefits for those who are not willing to assimilate into our way of life or do anything to become contributing citizens.
Every day, you seem to be doing your best to emasculate our armed forces.  You’ve destroyed all the safeguards to our national security.  You’ve made us a laughing-stock as the paper tiger weaklings of the world. ‘Leading from behind’ is the coward’s way; it is not the American way.
Every day, you continue to alienate our former allies and bow in cowardly submission to our increasingly numerous hostile, violent enemies –in particular, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Is it possible for your ideology of hatred for all that is America and your cynical vindictiveness to take a day off?  Can you have the White House physician give you a shot that will dull your flaming Narcissism for just one news cycle?  Give us a break.
In other words, President Barack Hussein Obama – can you just sit down and shut up?

Is Our Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama…… A.W.O.L.?

This phrase (A.W.O.L. - Absent Without Leave) which pertains mostly to the military, is defined as being absent from a post, especially a military position, without permission. Our present President, Barack Hussein Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, seems to be absent without leave from his job as president. He doesn’t seem to be present in the making of decisions and the carrying out of his duties of president like he should be doing, which in turn affects negatively, the country of the United States. As I said in one of my previous editorials, the lights are on in the White House, but it seems that nobody is home. Obama (and his wife) love the trappings of the office of the presidency, but he dislikes or shuns with a passion, the duties that the job entails. He really seems to be A.W.O.L.

Look at some of the things that he has done or hasn’t done over the past few years. He has played over 120 rounds of golf while we have an unemployment rate hovering around 8% and our recovery from the recession that has been pitiful. Is that “sharing the hardship”, like his fellow Americans have had to endure? Yes, we all know that being president is a stressful job and that he needs some recreation or down time to unwind, but playing golf 120 times is a bit much, don’t you think? In fact, during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s enclave in Pakistan, where was our Commander-in-Chief, on the golf course, where he had to be called off the golf course to witness the take down of Osama by our brave Navy Seals. Yet, he was the first to take credit for this heroic event. You could say he was shameless in his claiming credit for the raid (in fact, it was reported that it was Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and C.I.A Director Robert Gates, who actually gave the order to proceed with the raid). He and his Zombie supporters still today bring up the killing of Osama bin Laden as the crowning achievement of his Administration. (General Motors is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead is their rueful chant).

We all know that CEO’s delegate power to others, as the chief executive officer can’t micro-manage everything under his domain, but when is Obama going to at least know what’s happening in his own administration and around the world? Yes, he can give great speeches (as he reads them off his teleprompter), but being president takes more than giving a speech or fund raising for the Democratic Party in front of $50,000 a plate dinner guests.

His actions, as president, are just a continuation of what he did as an Illinois State Senator. It was reported that he voted 130 times “present” by not voting “Yea” or “Nay” on important issues that came before the Illinois State Senate. As president, he just can’t seem “to pull the trigger” in making a timely decision. His total lack of executive experience is really showing through, and the U.S. is the worse for it. The world is in turmoil and the domestic scandals are coming fast and furious (no pun intended), and he knows nothing, only what he reads in the newspaper or what he sees on T.V..

Look at all the people in his Administration who have screwed up, and how many still have a job, either the same one or a different job (some even have been promoted)? Is that what we want in our president, a procrastinator, a wuss, or, on a few occasions, an outright liar? I hope not!

Of course his ardent supporters will claim that all these charges against Obama are all politically motivated, and then the usual charge is put forth that his critics are “racist” because they can’t accept a black president. Hogwash! This pretender to the throne, Barack Hussein Obama, is and has been since his first inauguration, A.W.O.L. from the job as president, and he really should be relieved of duty. One can only wish that would happen.
