In going through some of the headlines and reading the various articles and news reports, I sit here amazed at how low the United States has been brought in the last twelve years. The Bush administration and the Republican party were a disaster for America’s economy and personal liberty. The downward spiral of morality picked up the pace before Bush during the Clinton era and since 9/11/2001 genuine morality and integrity is practically non-existent for those in our government. The major media has been overwhelming in their support for Barack Obama. They have virtually ignored, under-reported and glossed over each and every betrayal of the American people and scandal … even those scandals and betrayals which resulted in the loss of American lives.
Each and every day the U.S. Constitution is violated by those who are occupying the highest elected offices in America. George Washington in his famous Farewell Address warned … One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown.
We are witnessing the undermining of “what cannot be directly overthrown” as I’m writing this. The Department of Justice seizure of journalists’ phone records, under the guise of investigating national security “leaks” is a direct assault on the first amendment. The infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms via buying up all the ammunition and banning certain firearms based solely on their appearance undermines the 2nd amendment. Innocent American citizens had their fourth amendment rights blatantly violated during the search for the Boston Marathon bomber. These few examples demonstrate the government’s assault on rights that cannot be directly overthrown … but done incrementally, and now with increasing regularity.
The rapid decline in the morality and integrity of those responsible for the security of America is a serious problem indeed. Washington stated: Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness. And … Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice ?
George Washington warned also that the ”insidious wiles” of foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.
Take a little time and read George Washington’s Farewell Address and compare his words to what is happening in America right now. Decide for yourself if everything he cautioned and warned us about is going on, destroying America right this second …
PURE ARROGANCE!! Woman Who Changed Benghazi Talking Points Nominated For State Dept. Promotion
Via: The Lid
This may be the most arrogant move in a Presidency already plagued with an over-abundance of haughtiness . Today President Obama nominated former State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland to be the department’s top diplomat for Europe and Eurasia.
Ms. Nuland has been in the news a lot lately, she was the person in the State Department behind taking out the truth in those Benghazi talking points.
Lois Lerner just happened to be directly involved in the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups as recently as April 2012, more than nine months after she first learned of the activity.
Hmmmm …. See any resemblance?

The other day I was reading how the un-Affordable Health Care Act (Obama-care) was already doing so much good for so many people. All the person provided as evidence was a link to the government web site explaining what’s “in the bill” … written by Kathleen Sebelius. (yeah, the Ms. Sebelius) Well, it seems even the most die-hard Obama supporters are beginning to realize they’ve been screwed by their Messiah.
Via the AP
When President Barack Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters.
But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law — problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members.
The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren’t working to fix the problem.
“It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it,” said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. “That is not going to be true for millions of workers now.”
What’s funny is when the guy said, “It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it.”
I think people are beginning to realize what Obama said was an “untruth” (translation: LIE) at the time said it, and there are no unexpected consequences within Obama-care. All of it is carefully planned and purposely deceptive and burdensome. The problem is with the ignorant who bought into it and we’re all going to pay for it. I don’t know how many times I’ve said … when American goes down, we’re all going with her. Liberal, conservative, white, black and Hispanic. The results are going to be the same for all.
As always liberals live in a fantasy world of denial. If’s been well established team Obama is working on a government-mandated retirement program. The government is looking to take control of the $18.5 trillion in private retirement accounts. I read this morning where one liberal wrote that he went to an ATM and got $100 out of his account, so the above can’t be true.
I had a very good laugh this morning. According to this, the national debt will be cut in half by the end of the “Obama Administration”, whatever that means.
People like the above mentioned liberal live in a fantasy world. The only defense they can come up with is a mocking kind of tone like … “Hey! I’m still waiting for the gum-mit to knock on my door to confiscate my gun” … or … ”My ATM card works, so I’m waiting for the gum-mit to take control of my retirement account” … or … “If the gum-mit was going to confiscate guns, don’t you think it would have happened by now?” They will wait until mid July and because it’s hot they will proclaim … “Global warming is real!” Entertaining for sure.
You know things are getting bad for team Obama when even the Huffington Post is calling for Eric Holder’s dismissal.
Thanks to Israel Matzav for the link to the article and the photo.
I have to give the Arab world credit. All the while Barack Obama kissed up to Arab leaders and bowed before them, they recognized him for what he is … a weak, unattached, narcissistic, bumbling fool.
The following is from MEMRI (The Middle East Media Research Institute)
Op-Ed In London Daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat Attacks Obama: The Weakest President In The History Of The U.S.
In his May 21, 2013 column, Mashari Al-Zaydi, columnist for the London-based Saudi daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, harshly criticized President Barack Obama and his foreign policy, particularly as it relates to the crisis in Syria.
Al-Zaydi wrote that Obama’s handling of the Syrian crisis had proven his failure as president, showing him as completely lacking in leadership ability, hesitant and diffident, and overall the weakest president in the history of the United States. He added that it is because of these failings that Obama allowed the crisis in Syria to escalate to the current situation, and that it is he who “caused the wound to become deeper and the bloodshed to continue.” He also stated that Obama’s hesitant and failed leadership in the Middle East, and especially in Syria, had laid the groundwork for the development of extremism and sectarian violence greater than those of Al-Qaeda.

Top IRS official will invoke the Fifth Amendment in congressional hearing about tea party targeting program
The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday afternoon that Lois Lerner, who heads up the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt division, plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in a hearing Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs.
The Fifth Amendment provides that U.S. citizens may not be compelled to offer testimony if telling the truth would incriminate them.
Lerner’s defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III, wrote to the committee on Tuesday that his client would refuse to answer questions related to what she knew about the extra levels of scrutiny applied to conservative nonprofit organizations that applied for tax-exempt status beginning in 2010.
Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said that the IRS regards that behavior as “inappropriate,” but “it is not illegal.”
I find it somewhat odd, perhaps “telling” that Lois Lerner will invoke Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, you know the same Constitution team Obama constantly violate, to keep herself from having to tell the truth. I hope Darrel Issa has the cods to bring this “lady” down. What’s really sad about these freaks is every one of them lie, cheat, stonewall and deceive to try to protect Barack Obama. He couldn’t care less about them. Of course he claims to know nothing about the unsavory deeds of the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the DOJ spying on the Associated Press, the harassing of Fox News reporters, etc. HIs chief of staff and advisors have all been aware of these things … yet they didn’t inform him? Rrriiigghhtt …
About this blog:
I noticed my one of my liberal blogging friends whom I often quote could be mildly upset that I haven’t provided links to his site. I thought we had a mutual agreement as he often refers to postings here without links as well. It means little to me, but we’re all wired differently. Attribution for certain posts is okay, but I have never asked for it. If I happen to run across an article which I think is very good, and I want to post it here in it’s entirety, I always get permission from the author, giving credit and attribution to them. I have never been turned down by anyone and all have been very gracious. Judi McLeod over at the Canada Free Press, Marinka Peschmann, Alan Caruba and Jim O’Neill are all quality people of whom I’ve re-posted their writings.
This site is not listed on the Technorati Blog Directory. I’m not interested in it. Cry and Howl has been nominated for Coolest SOB In The Conservative Blogosphere Award 2013 and I’m honored for the mention. Cry and Howl ranks 2,592,068 on the Alexa Traffic Rank, whatever that means.
I wrote all that to say, I’m not a professional writer (which is obvious). I have, like everyone else, opinions, and I use this site to express them. My writing “style” is somewhat crass (which Marinka Peschmann once told me is useful). I enjoy “meeting” people here, liberal and conservative. In the “about” section of this site I think I made it clear on how I approach the liberal way of thinking. I can be and have been equally critical of conservatives, especially the more famous ones of whom I believe exploit true conservative patriots for their own popularity and to feed their egos. To me that is worse than being a liberal.
Democrats believe it benefits all of us to help the weakest and the poorest among us. Republicans believe it benefits all of us to help the wealthiest and most powerful among us. Democrats believe everyone is entitled to health care regardless of their ability to pay. Republicans believe everyone is entitled to jack squat if they can’t pay for health care.
There were fifteen of those comparisons and all were just as ridiculous as the two above. First, if you want to know what Democrats are and what they believe … just listen to what they accuse others of. The problem with Democrats (liberals) is they confuse Republicans with conservatives. You see, all Democrats are liberal, but Republicans are not conservative. Knowing that, I think I’ll do a identification lesson on how to know if a person is a liberal and what they and Democrats believe.
You’re a liberal if you do something wrong … but it’s always someone else’s fault.
You’re a liberal when you think infanticide is “women’s health care”.
Democrats believe in exploiting minorities for votes.
Democrats believe in keeping poor people poor.
Democrats rejoice in the deaths of children so they can exploit them for a political agenda.
Liberals call it “free speech” when someone tramples on the American flag.
Liberals believe no one has the right to be richer, smarter, have more talent, or better looking than them.
Liberals believe boys and girls are the same.
Liberals believe it’s beneficial to teach 5 and 6 year old children about adult sex.
Liberals believe it’s racist to disagree with Barack Obama.
Liberals believe it’s not racist to call conservative black politicians “Uncle Tom”, “House N**ger”, etc.
Liberals believe Democrats don’t lie. Democrats know liberals think they don’t lie … so they keep lying to them, and liberals keep believing them.
Liberals hate rich people … unless they are rich liberals.\
Democrats hate rich people … unless the rich donate to Democrats.
Liberals hate any reference to God by anything state-run … Yet Obama is god to them.
Democrats and liberals (one and the same) still blame Bush after nearly five years of Obama.
Liberals believe in “global warming” … yet even the Huffington Post admits the earth is cooling.
Liberals believe Hillary Clinton doesn’t lie.
Liberals believe Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans “sacrificed” their own lives in Benghazi.
Liberals believe the Ground Hog Day prediction.
Liberals believe Guam will tip over if too many people are on the island.
Liberals believe Obama-care will be free.
Liberals believe in feeding and clothing the poor … as long as it’s not their food and clothes being used.
Democrats claim to care for people of color … yet unemployment is about twice that for them than the national average.
Democrats believe only they have a right to keep and bear arms.
Liberals believe guns kill people
That’s enough. You get the idea. Liberals remain willfully ignorant and Democrats love it.
And here is a little tid-bit that pretty much sums up why liberal men are the way they are …
Via: Mail Online
Men who are physically strong are more likely to have right wing political views
- Weaker men more likely to support welfare state and wealth redistribution
- Link may reflect psychological traits that evolved in our ancestors
- Strength was a proxy for ability to defend or acquire resources
- There is no link between women’s physical strength and political views
Yesterday I posted a link to a piece at the American Thinker entitled If Government Were a Business, Obama Would Already Be Fired, written by William Sullivan. In that piece Mr. Sullivan explained that the American taxpayers are the creditors and shareholders of the business called the U.S. Government. He went on to say … let’s pretend for a moment that it is a business. And let’s pretend that this business had engaged not only in unethical practices, but illegal practices, completely betraying the trust of its shareholders and customers and disavowing the very foundational principles upon which its business is predicated.
Now apparently, the point that illegal and unethical “business practices” have been the modus operandi of the Obama regime doesn’t register with liberals. I quote one who responded to the piece by Mr. Sullivan: The problem with that line of crap is that the “Investors” in the Business called “America” are receiving the highest returns on their investments in years and are laughing all the way to the bank with their money market dividend checks while still running their mouths about how bad the economy has become and how mis-managed America’s Business has become. It is totally hypocritical! The guy who made that asinine statement doesn’t get the fact that the Wall Street “fat cats” he holds in contempt are the only ones “laughing all the way to the bank” … not the average American taxpayer. I seem to remember the average American taxpayer’s money was used by the government to bail out those “investors” whom the above liberal mentioned in his claim of how well the government is handling the economy. Odd that I haven’t gotten my “money market dividend check” …
The problem with the “line of crap” given us by a liberal is it is just that … “crap” … and just another instance that in the eyes of a liberal Obama can do, has done, no wrong. They ignore the debt, deficit spending, massive increase in food stamp recipients, the overreach of power by the various government agencies, etc. In my humble opinion it speaks volumes about the selfishness of liberals. It’s disgusting. HERE’S a closer look at the liberal.
The American taxpayer has had it “broken off in them” time and again by none other than Barack Hussein Obama … the phony Mulatto, gay, Muslim president. Yes Barack Obama, the same guy who said, “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” Anyone with their heads not squarely up their rear-end know that “pledge” is just as false as all the others he’s made.
I took the day off from blogging anything yesterday. I have a couple of things saved in drafts, but I doubt I’ll post any of them. I spent some time this morning checking out news sites and blogs. I can’t help but think Obama and company have intentionally created so much chaos as to make it nearly impossible to keep up with all of it. Most is created intentionally, yet there are some nefarious deeds that back-fired and bit team Obama in the a$$ … such as Fast and Furious and the Benghazi attack. In both events the incompetence and/or arrogance of this circus of governance led directly to the deaths of a multitude of people … Americans. One blogger claims all these misdeeds by Obama are being exploited by the Republicans and conservatives to make Obama look bad. Make Obama look bad??? In his/her opinion Americans being murdered as a result of Obama’s actions shouldn’t reflect badly on him. Typical of someone whose every post consists of 90% adjectives describing his/her opinion of conservatives. The effort to be witty or clever is long lost after the first or second sentence. I laughed this morning when I read (scanned) one post and got to the link of reference, which was to something Rachael Maddow said. That was enough. Anyone who wants to have at least an ounce of credibility would leave MSNBC and Rachael Maddow out of the equation. But liberals don’t care about credibility. They’ll spout off blatant lies in an effort to first convince themselves and then others that said lies are actually true.
First this at American Thinker:
If Government Were a Business, Obama Would Already Be Fired
Let’s begin by stating the obvious. If government were a business, and subject to economic realities and the consequences of its ignoring them, it would have been liquidated long ago — its remaining assets of value would have been reclaimed by its creditors and shareholders (both of which are the American taxpayer), and its market share of consumers (also the American taxpayer, and those they are gracious enough to financially support) would be sought by other, more efficient businesses.
But let’s pretend for a moment that it is a business. And let’s pretend that this business had engaged not only in unethical practices, but illegal practices, completely betraying the trust of its shareholders and customers and and disavowing the very foundational principles upon which its business is predicated.
The IRS, an agency under the control of this government that Obama assures youngsters is no threat to liberty whatsoever, has done exactly that. They have apologized for selectively harassing, excessively scrutinizing, and denying benefits to conservative groups these last years.
Of particular note, the Treasury Department’s inspector general J. Russell George disclosed on Friday that the Obama administration officials were well aware of his auditing the IRS for its political screening policies in June 2012. Convenient as the IRS’s targeting of Democrats’ enemies was, the Obama administration chose not to reveal any of this knowledge to the public in the 2012 election year, yet it now feigns shock and indignation at the prospect that the IRS could have acted irresponsibly and illegally.
Obama is reasonably implicated in this crime, and this crime is nothing short of tyranny.
The IRS acted in direct defiance of that most hallowed of our laws, purposefully enumerated in the First Amendment to the Constitution, which ensures that a free people’s right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances” is to be protected by the government. The people are not to be punished by the government against which that petition is directed.
One piece I noticed this morning was written by one of my favorite writers, J.B. Williams. Though I don’t agree with the title of his article, he has put together an excellent piece …
By J.B. Williams
May 18, 2013
White House propaganda secretary Jay Carney finally said something that was true, which I can agree with… “This is not a scandal” referring to the IRS gestapo operations run by Obama henchmen.
He’s right, it isn’t a scandal. A scandal is something to read in the supermarket tabloid for entertainment value. No, this is a full-blown conspiracy to use the full weight and power of all federal agencies to go after and destroy all political opponents of “the one” Barack Hussein Obama.
No matter who you ask about what in this administration, you get the same answer…. “We know nothing!”
The current story involving Obama’s use of the IRS to target political opposition via going after more than 500 patriotic action groups, their donors and their volunteers, is but one piece of a much larger conspiracy to destroy the United States beginning with all who would stand in the way of that agenda.
Yes, the administration has been using the IRS to target all political oppositionsince taking office in 2009. They went after Tea Party, 912, Patriot, Liberty, Christian, conservative, republican, constitutional, pro-life and anti-global governance organizations.
These efforts were aimed at blocking “tax exempt” fund raising by placing the groups 501 status on hold. But they were also used to acquire lists of donors, officers and volunteers, individual American citizens who were then targeted for audits and delays in their individual tax refunds, a deeper attempt to cut-off the life blood of any political movement, the funding, and intimidate those who stand opposed to Obama.
Heads should roll on the IRS story, starting with everyone in that agencyinvolved in carrying out these operations, those in control of the agency at the time those orders were issued to staff, and every member of congress or the administration who pushed the IRS to act in gestapo fashion as nothing more than a tool for the Democrat Party and Obama Administration. Nothing short of broad criminal prosecution is going to do on this matter.
However, the IRS story is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg…
Mr. Williams sums it up …
Imagine what would have happened if George W. Bush had done the following….
• Used the FEC to cover up massive election fraud • Used DHS to identify all Democrats and Liberals as “extremists” and “potential terrorists” setting the entire intelligence, military and law enforcement community on a mission to arrest, disarm, incarcerate and kill if necessary, all Democrats and Liberals • Used the IRS to block ALL left-leaning 501 political action committees of just George Soros alone, stopping the billions poured into left-wing causes by simply using the IRS to go after those groups and all of their donors • Used the DOJ to wiretap all journalists to control the messaging like Goebbels, and then wiretap all Democrat members of congress in their private chambers in order to hear their every conversation • Used the DOD to dismantle and destroy the U.S. Military, leaving our soldiers like sitting ducks under insane ROE on the field of battle and leaving our diplomats unprotected and behind • Used the SEC to go after Democrat companies like Progressive Insurance, GEICO, Microsoft and every film and music enterprise in Hollywood • And then used the Treasury Department to destroy the U.S. economy and even the U.S. currency so that no “middle class” voter could find a job • All while importing known terrorists from around the globe, killing millions of Natural Born Americans via abortion and making room for millions of illegal aliens with an anti-American vision for America…
