Bushes sneak in/out the White House on Friday


Unbeknownst to the press, President Obama met Friday evening with former president George H.W. Bush and his son, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, in the Oval Office.

120127_jeb_ghwb_obama_wh_605White House officials did not list the meeting on the president’s schedule but released a photo on Flickr. According to the photo’s time stamp, the meeting occurred shortly after 5 p.m., about the time the president returned to the White House from a fundraiser.

When asked what the men discussed and why it wasn’t on the schedule, the White House released a statement saying, “The three men enjoyed a personal visit in the Oval Office – as they have done on previous occasions when President Bush is Washington.”

The Bushes are in town to attend the exclusive Alfalfa Club dinner Saturday, an annual get-together for Washington power brokers that Obama also is scheduled to attend, according to the Associated Press.

The meeting came at an interesting time politically, just one day after Obama, in an interview with ABC News, blamed predecessor George W. Bush for policies that brought on the greatest recession since the Great Depression. He also blamed him for initiating the expansion of food stamp rolls.

Yet another energy porkulus recipient hits the skids


Earlier this week, Stimulus beneficiary Evergreen Energy bit the dust. Then, Ener1, a manufacturer of batteries for electric vehicles and recipient of Stimulus largesse, filedporkulus for bankruptcy. And today, the Las Vegas Sun reports that Amonix, Inc., a manufacturer of solar panels that received $5.9 million from the Porkulus, will cut two-thirds of its workforce, about 200 employees, only seven months after opening a factory in Nevada.

I foresaw this spate of bad news last November. As I explained yesterday,

Money to Burn!In a previous post, I compared renewable energy spending in the 2009 Stimulus to a green albatross burdening the President. I argued that Stimulus spending was inherently wasteful, because politics invariably corrupts government’s investment decisions. The result is taxpayers losses on bankrupt companies that existed only by the grace of political favoritism, a la Solyndra. images (4)I predicted the green stimulus would haunt the President, in the form of a slow drip public relations nightmare, as a litany of bad investments go belly-up in the run up to the 2012 elections.

Mr. President, are you still sure you want to “double down” on renewable energy giveaways?

Could this be America’s Kumbaya Moment?

By The InkDemon

Imagine a political season without contention and accusations.

Just think about a movement made up of high-minded thinkers on both sides of the political spectrum who have America’s best interest in mind.

Can you put all that together into a political party where everyone comes together and elects a humble, spiritual person to be a great president?

Just close your eyes, clinch your fists, tighten your jaw and imagine all that happening.  Now imagine when you open your eyes all this has happened!

It’s America’s Kumbayah moment!

Everyone is sitting with their arms around the person next to them.  They are swaying from side to side.  There is a big spiritual campfire, and everyone is singing:

Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya
O Lord, kumbaya ….

If you believe the Main Stream Media, this has finally happened.  It called America Elect.  It’s a true third party with more than a million signatures on a petition that will place a Kumbaya candidate on the ballot in every major state.


No third party has ever been successful in American politics.  There have been many third parties, but they all succeeded in electing the candidate whom the third-partiers did not want.

Think back to George H. W. Bush.  He was a waffling wimp of a president.  Americans loved his predecessor and longed for someone who could be the next Ronald Reagan.

Ross Perot succeeded in getting Clinton electedThat person of the moment was Ross Perot.  The billionaire was an instant celebrity on the Main Stream Media.  They all wanted to hear what he was saying.  Their questions came slow and easy.Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton  In the news business, it’s what is known as puff-ball questions. Perot looked great.  Perot sounded great.  Perot’s logic was “flawless” to many.

He succeeded in getting William Jefferson Clinton elected to the presidency.

Lurking out there are several potential third party “movements”.  These movements are all as "big" as the egos of the billionaires behind them.

Excited MSNBC reporters say America wants America Elect
America Elect has a leader.  His name is Kahlil Byrd.

Would you believe Byrd was big-time Obama supporter in 2008 and has now turned into a "genuine" third partier with our interests at the center of his heart?

If you can believe all of that, the InkDemon has a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you, too.  Below are links to web sites ready to help you to achieve your own Kumbaya Moment.

CNN: New group paves way for alternative 2012 choice

American Thinker: Americans Elect: Obama's Third-Party Tar Pit

There other Kumbaya Moments out there.  One is the GOOOH movement.  Their silly leader was or is an executive at Dell Computers.  He wants to completely replace every House of Representatives member with a GOOOH geek. 

Kumbaya, my Lord.  Kumbaya! 

The leader of this "movement" wants your money.  With your money in his fist, he will assemble a gaggle of Democrats and Republicans who will change (forever?) the House of Representatives.

His name is Tim Cox.  He's armed with a Power Point demonstration that has "flawless" logic exactly like Ross Perot.

In reality, Cox like Ross Perot is just an empty suit.

The only way to defeat Obama and restore America to greatness is by electing the best available Republican candidate and then HOLD HIS FEET TO THE FIRE when he assumes office! 

Otherwise, we will be ruled by THEM!

Mike Reagan, Limbaugh defend Newt

Ronald Reagan’s eldest son Mike Reagan has issued a statement lambasting Mitt Romney and his supporters for claims that Romney’s Republican presidential rival Newt Gingrich was a strong critic of President Reagan.

Reagan says such claims are false.

Rush Limbaugh defends Newt GingrichEven Rush Limbaugh, shocked by the Romney claims, chimed on his Thursday radio broadcast to say “This is obviously a coordinated attack to take Newt out here in Florida.”

Mitt Romney as the JokerRush slammed the Romney-backed smear campaign against Newt.

“That kind of stuff is why people hate Romney so much,” Limbaugh said.


Frightening Video About Islam Taking Over Our Schools

This video was e-mailed to the InkDemon by David Batson of the Texas Tea Party Alliance.  The e-mail contained the following message:

This is frightening so watch the entire video.

This is a very telling lecture. It hits at the root of what is happening in American Universities, and what is happening to our culture.

This fight is as real and costly as any combat this nation has been through in the past. The battlefield is non-conventional, but so are the methods of our enemies.

Please take the time to listen.  You will have to suffer a short commercial. (end of e-mail)

Passionate oratory about what is wrong with our schools and America!

The InkDemon says:

Why in the HELL can't CONSERVATIVES have more speakers like this!  All the InkDemon sees in Tea Party meetings are empty suits giving Power Points!   The unions and the radicals have speakers who project passion LIKE THIS SPEAKER!   The Tea Party has empty suit-ed geeks with Power Points!  ZZZZZZZ!

In our presidential elections, we have substituted very-structured,  mind-numbing debates and 20-second "infomercials" for passionate oratory!

IF we have no passion for what we believe, then we will SOON be ruled by THEM!  Why?  Because THEY have passion.

Does anyone remember George W. Bush (Bushy Baby) speaking to a Joint Session of Congress after 9/11?  The InkDemon expected a speech like Franklin Roosevelt's Day of Infamy speech.  Instead we got Bushy Baby very effeminately saying, "Islam is a religion of peace."

The InkDemon expected to hear a leader slam his fist on the podium and declare total war!   Instead we got a bushy-tailed Bushy Baby defending Islam!

We've been told that this is a very small group in the Muslims of the world.  A lie told 10,000 times becomes the "truth"!

Obama is not a Muslim ... Obama is not a Muslim ... Obama is not a Muslim ....

When we elect a neo-conservative RINO to the presidency, he or she will never rescind the presidential executive orders of the previous radical liberal president.  Bushy Baby never rescinded the Clinton presidential executive orders.  Mitt Romney, "Slick" Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich will not rescind Obama's radical executive orders.   Only Ron Paul says he will rescind all of the Obama executive orders on the first day.  Ron Paul will never be elected.  Where are we going from here?

We're going to Hell in a Power Point!

Will the Keystone Pipeline Harm the environment?


The InkDemon wants to know the answer to another question:

Why did not the Republicans put this map out there?

Why didn't U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner call a news conference and show this map?   Is he smoking dope, too?

Why didn't my congressman, Rep. Sam Johnson, put this map on his web page?

Why didn't Al Lee, who is running for the U.S. Congress and is promising to look out for the people, put these maps on his web site?

Why didn't Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and "Slick" Rick Santorum, and even Ron Paul put this map on their web sites?

Who IS looking out for America?  Who is looking out for the folks?  I didn't see this on Bill O'Reilly's Show!

Is everyone too absorbed in watching, Days of Our Lives on TV?

smoke_dopeCome on people!  Republicans are supposed to be smarter than this?  Is everyone smokin' DOPE?

It should have been simple.  Get a map and show the people where the existing pipelines are.  Overlay the existing pipelines with the proposed pipeline.   That would have exposed Obama and his liberal friends for what they really are: a bunch of liberal dope smoking LIARS!

Why Your Voter ID Card is in Limbo

Why haven’t you received your voters ID card if you live in Collin and other counties in Texas?

The redistricting drawn up by the Texas Legislature is in litigation and is being reviewed by the Obama Justice Department under Justice Secretary Eric Holder.

The issue of the court in San Antonio holding up the process is just muddying the water.

The law comes out of the liberalism of the 1960’s. According to Wikipedia:

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 is a landmark piece of national legislation in the United States that outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchis****t of African Americans in the U.S.

Echoing the language of the 15th Amendment, the Act prohibits states from imposing any "voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure ... to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color." Specifically, Congress intended the Act to outlaw the practice of requiring otherwise qualified voters to pass literacy tests in order to register to vote, a principal means by which Southern states had prevented African-Americans from exercising the franchise. The Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat, who had earlier signed the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law.

… The Act has been renewed and amended by Congress four times, the most recent being a 25-year extension signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2006.

The original act was directed to the following states:

§ Alabama

§ Alaska

§ Arizona

§ Georgia

§ Louisiana

§ Mississippi

§ South Carolina

§ Texas

§ Virginia

The Wussification of the American Male


(Full disclosure:  The David Brooks cited in this blog is a left-wing editor and columnist for the New York Times)
This come from the blog cited above.

“According to figures from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States has a smaller share of prime age men in the work force than any other G-7 nation.”

- David Brooks
The Missing Fifth”
The New York Times

When did this happen; when did the men in America lose “Their Mojo” and decide it was okay to stay home and let someone else put food on the table?

In the late 90′s I lived in an affluent neighborhood in suburban San Francisco. It was kind of likeBeaver Clever’s home town; dads went to work and mom’s stayed home and nurtured the children, well in most cases. Actually, in 2 of the 34 homes in our tract, it was actually the dads who raised the kids and the “she-men” drudged off to work each day. Perhaps this was a clue of things to come.

I am happy to say that my daughter recently married a wonderful (and hard working) young man. I must admit that as a prospective father-in-law, I spent a fair amount of time over the past 10 years interviewing my daughter’s boyfriends. And, needless to say, I was heavily focused on their career potential.

Thinking back, there was more evidence in these PSIL’s (Potential son-in-law) interviews than I realized. In my generation, no one grew up dreaming about working for the government, but not so anymore.

One recent PSIL’s ultimate goal was to be an English Teacher, another wanted to be a Firefighter and High School Football Coach. And even one of the most industrious PSILs ended up going to work for a government funded defense contractor after graduation; mostly because the private sector wasn’t hiring.

The Sad Facts

David Brooks reported a number of sobering facts in his recent piece on this topic:

“In 1954, about 96 percent of American men between the ages of 25 and 54 worked. Today that number is around 80 percent. One-fifth of all men in their primeworking ages are not getting up and going to work.”

“The number of Americans on the permanent disability rolls, meanwhile, has steadily increased. Ten years ago, 5 million Americans collected a federal disability benefit. Now 8.2 million do. That costs taxpayers $115 billion a year, or about $1,500 per household. Government actuaries predict that the trust fund that pays for these benefits will run out of money within seven years.”

“More American men lack the emotional and professional skills they would need to contribute. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 35 percent of those without a high school diploma are out of the labor force, compared with less than 10 percent of those with a college degree.”

The Law of Unintended Consequences

As we are all painfully aware, the United States has been on a fast track to becoming a Nanny State for decades, but the whole “Hope and Change” campaign that Obama bombarded college students with in 2008 put the whole thing on steroids. Let’s face it, Obama’s message was simply “elect me and I’ll take care of you.’

We now have 99 weeks of extended unemployment benefits, Obamacare, military Chaplains officiating over gay marriages among combat soldiers, and to me, the worst is a president who can’t report anything good in America with using the word “I” in every other sentence and “plays the victim” card when his critics get a little tough — not much of a male role model.

I think all of this has brought about unintended consequences that have undermined one of the greatest forces on earth — the self determination of the American Man.

The ”Mancession”

My friend Mark Perry has been writing about the fact that most of the pain of the great recession of 2008 has fallen on men — take a look:

“Male employment is down by 4,932,000 jobs since the January 2008 peak, compared to female employment being 2.549 million jobs below the peak. Therefore, we can say that for every 100 jobs lost by women since the start of the recession, men have lost 193.5 jobs.”

“On a percentage basis, men have suffered about 66% of the recession-related job losses, and women only 34%.

And then there is this:

Women Unite?

As the above chart indicates, the decline of the American male has been somewhat offset by the rise of the American woman. Clearly, more so than any so-called minority, American woman have taken full advantage of decades of affirmative action to even the score in the battle of the sexes.

There is one problem with this. In my father’s generation, there was no doubt about who was responsible to protect freedom and the American way and no doubt about who was responsible for putting food on the family table. Although my generation (the age of Aquarius) was considerably softer, by and large, my men friends knew that their family’s standard of living was pretty much dependent on their career and work effort.

But it appears that for as many as 20% of today’s American males, this is no longer the truth. Thanks to our emerging Nanny State, our kids are learning that their economic well being defined by the state — and if you want more than your neighbor, well, you’re just greedy.

So where will the innovative drive that built the US economy in the past come from?

My fear is that with the exception of the relentless dedication of many single mothers, I’m not so sure that today’s successful women have the same drive as successful men of the past; if they don’t have it who does?

Our National Focus

Clearly, with millions of Baby Boomers retiring every year, stressing the capabilities of Social Security and Medicare, now is a lousy time for our young men to go wimpy. But can you blame them when we live in a country with half the country votes for candidates who promise to have the government take care of them?

Perhaps Brooks said it best:

“Reinvigorating the missing fifth — bringing them back into the labor market and using their capabilities — will certainly require money. If this were a smart country, we’d be having a debate about how to shift money from programs that provide comfort and toward programs that spark reinvigoration.

But, of course, that’s not what is happening. Discretionary spending, which might be used to instigate dynamism, is declining. Health care spending, which mostly provides comfort to those beyond working years, is expanding. Attempts to take money from health care to open it up for other uses are being crushed.”

Not only is no one working on solving this problem; few even realize it exists.

Do yourself a favor and spread the word!

Why we should not watch the media

This is why we should not rely on the media for information.

It is unreliable. Most people do not get their information from the news media anyway.  They get it from the following:

  • Comedy shows
  • Late night television
  • Day Time soap operas
  • Three-minute news segments during the day.
  • Their “friends”
  • Their union boss or union steward  or union publication
  • Sit coms
  • Movies

What has the media created?

Many – probably most – men spend much of their time drinking beer and watching ESPN.  They don’t know anything.  Older men want entitlements to pay for the medical bills they created by abusive, compulsive, obsessive, and risky lifestyles.

Women want entitlements because they are mostly (YES! mostly) unmarried and have a family to raise.  Younger women want entitlements because they are afraid they will get pregnant and will need money for an abortion or medical bills for STD’s. They love to party, get tattoos and have sex. The poster child for this group is  Casey Anthony. They believe they are not getting a “fair shake” in the labor market, and they want the government to make it up somehow.

White Christians believe voting liberal is not WWJD, but WJWD.   (What Jesus Would Do.)   They have some crazy mixed up theological ideal.  They have no idea what Christianity really is.  They want to send our sons to fight over a pile of rocks in Israel.  They don't think about the consequences.  They don’t believe it may be their sons.  They don’t think past WJWD.  As far as redistribution and entitlements are concerned, isn’t that WJWD?  Of course!

Minorities want entitlements because they don’t want to work when they don’t have to.  They have been told and believe that their backs and their hard work created the whites’ wealth.  Now, they want it to be redistributed.  After all, that’s what they have been promised?

The Ant and the GrasshopperStudents and young people have been politically corrected in school.  They somehow believe they are the “99 percent” and everyone else is the “1 percent”.   After all, they never learned math in school.  They were too busy being politically corrected, smoking dope, listening to MTV, thinking about sex, and watching sports to think about the future or the Constitution

It’s like the story of the Ant and the Grasshopper.  It doesn't register with  them.  They cannot read anyway!  They live in a Tele-Visual universe.  The only morality tales they know were spoon fed to them on MTV, the movies, and ESPN.

They all will get what they want too … at least for a while.

Obama: More jobs in jobless benefits than Keystone


From the Washington Examiner:

President Obama said that he will delay his vacation and keep Congress in session until the passage of his desired payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits extension -- two proposals that Obama said would create more jobs than the Keystone XL pipeline that his administration recently delayed.

"I would not ask anyone to do something I'm not willing to do myself," Obama said when asked if he would go on vacation while keeping Congress in Washington D.C. "We are going to stay here as long as it takes [to get unemployment extended and pass the payroll tax cut]."

As Obama called for passage of those bills, he also responded to a recent Republican push to require him to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada. "However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline," he said, "they're going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance."

Obama to reject Keystone Pipeland


Obama administration to reject Keystone pipeline

By Juliet Eilperin and Steven Mufson, Wednesday, January 18, 10:39 AM

The Obama administration will announce this afternoon it is rejecting a Canadian firm’s application for a permit to build and operate a massive oil pipeline across the U.S.-Canada border, according to sources who have been briefed on the matter.

However the administration will allow TransCanada to reapply after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive habitat of Nebraska’s Sandhills. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns will make the announcement, which comes in response to a congressionally-mandated deadline of Feb. 21 for action on the proposed Keystone pipeline.

Definition of Crony Capitalism

Here’s a definition of Crony Capitalism from the Wall Street Journal:

[It is] what happens, for example, when businessman A fixes things with politician B to fiddle with regulation or tax break C at the expense of competitor D and customers E through Z.

Political adventures in determining the way a particular market should work aren't crony capitalism per se. But that kind of habitual political tinkering tends to make cronyism a lot easier.

Romney upon signing RomneyCare

If Romney gains the nomination,  ObamaCare is off of the table!

From National Review Online

Like most conservatives, I’ve been hoping that Mitt would disavow Romneycare, the health-care reform he engineered as Massachusetts governor. I’ve been hoping he’d sensibly conclude it was a bad idea, exacerbated by the politics of a state whose Big Government enthusiasms make it an outlier in a center-right country. Romney, after all, has reversed several positions after being persuaded that he was in the wrong. Alas, despite having flopped more times than Flipper, Mitt has decided that Romneycare is his line in the sand — the crown jewel of his gubernatorial term, the single stand that will prove how constant he can be when passionately convinced he was right.

Santorum: ‘Supply-Sider’ for the working man

From the Wall Street Journal
Manchester, N.H.

'I'm someone who believes that making things creates wealth," says Rick Santorum.

It is primary day in New Hampshire, and the former Pennsylvania senator and current presidential candidate is describing his plan to slash corporate tax rates. To encourage companies to make things, he would completely eliminate the federal income tax on manufacturers. For all other businesses, the rate would be cut in half, to 17.5% from 35%.

Mr. Santorum also believes that making babies creates wealth. It's very difficult to grow an economy with a shrinking population, he says, pointing to the "demographic winter in Europe" as a cause of that region's troubles. To help avoid that fate in the U.S., he wants to triple the per-child tax credit and also cut individual tax rates.

We must unite behind Rick Santorum

By The InkDemon

I’ve tried to stay neutral in the Republican primary.   That is up until now.

What has changed?  I watched the Newt Gingrich South Carolina attack ad.   Gingrich damaged himself and Romney with this attack ad.  In doing so, Gingrich denigrated capitalism.

What was on Newt Gingrich’s mind when he ran that ad?  It was shameless!

Bill O’Reilly led off on his show tonight (Jan. 12) with Gingrich’s attack ad controversy.

Now we know what Obama knows.  This is obviously a Democrat attack ad.   We can expect to see a possible Romney candidacy hammered by this ad and similar ads in September before the presidential election.

The ad says that Romney’s company, Bain Capital, bought failing companies in South Carolina and cashed them out for a profit.  There is no evidence that happened.  However, Romney is damaged.

The best alternative now is for conservatives to unite behind Rick Santorum.  He is the only candidate that has not been tainted. 

A.B. Stoddard, editor of The Hill newspaper, said today that Santorum is nearing talks with Gingrich.  The objective is to try to get Gingrich’s endorsement should he (Gingrich)  drop out before or after South Carolina. 

Ron Paul’s supporters should follow suit. 

Santorum’s supporters should be very careful about criticizing Ron Paul’s minions.  We absolutely need them and their votes in November.

There is only one objective.  We should all put aside pride and unite behind one candidate.  That candidate is Rick Santorum.

Test yourself: Are you a Republican or a Democrat?

Republican or Democrat: Test Yourself

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he’s “offended”.

Thanks to Mr. Conservative web site

What good will Ron Paul bashing accomplish?

I hope that any Republican would stop and think a moment when you hear negative talk about Ron Paul.

The Evangelicals have turned their wrath from Satan to Ron Paul, who definitely is not.

When the primary is over, the Republican party needs Ron Paul’s supporters.  We do not want four more years of Mr. Obama’s regime.

The InkDemon’s hope is that Ron Paul will effect some changes for the better in the Republican platform and throw his support to the nominee – not to a third party.
