John Boehner Gives Middle Finger to the Voters (Omnibus bill)

by C. Edmund Wright on December 12, 2014

At least this little hellion is cute.....

At least this little hellion is cute…..

Let me tell you what John Boehner just did – he just shot the bird to all of those who voted for Republicans in the 2014 mid term elections. By working with Barack Obama – the man the voters clearly wanted to reign in and stop – to push through the 1.1 trillion dollar omnibus funding bill – Boehner effectively removed almost half of the leverage the NEW Congress can exercise.

This bill goes through September – meaning that the new House and the new Senate will lose 8 months of input on Federal budget issues. This, even more than some of the malignant spending in the bill, is the real cancer here. Boehner just did an FU to all of us.

And to make it worse, he had his deputies lie about his intentions to get a procedural vote win he needed. I won’t bore you with the details of this now, but suffice it to say that Boehner promised to pull the 9 month bill in favor of a short term 2 month bill if certain people voted certain ways on the procedural vote. Total corruption.

Now the theatrics moves to the Senate – where we may see an alliance between Ted Cruz and Elizabeth Warren. Strange bedfellows indeed.

 

As published in The American Thinker July 27, 2009 – and yet even more relevant today!

Mr. President, history and reality teach us that as racists go, we are, frankly, rank amateurs. And I am sick and tired of Ivy League elites like you and Professor Gates pretending otherwise.

What? You think I’m crazy?

Look at it this way. If we were worth a damn as racist whites, would we fall all over ourselves everyday to voluntarily watch, cheer for, emulate, take advice from and enrich folks named Tiger and Oprah?

Those are, after all, the two people that white racist America has anointed as the top cultural icons in our society. Ever heard about “the Oprah effect” or the ad campaign “I am Tiger Woods?” Let me translate for you: white Americans absolutely love these two black folks above any other athlete, actor, singer or even American Idol contestant on the planet — and big business in search of evil profits — knows it.

The best way for white authors to sell books to white readers...get on THIS woman's book club!!

The best way for white authors to sell books to white readers…get on THIS woman’s book club!!

And by love, I mean whitey will pay to go see, pay to watch, pay to read and pay to do pretty much anything these two non-white folks do, eat, watch, read or wear. To be blunt about it, this is a bigger white to black money transfer than any of your big government schemes. This is spreading the wealth around that the Joe the Plumbers of the world can love.

This is hope and change that we can believe in — because it is real and does not require a doggone thing from you, Jeremiah Wright or the nutty Professor Gates. (By the way, I lump Wright and Gates together because much of Gate’s African American studies is simply a secular version of Wright’s “black separatism.”)

To reiterate Mr. President – the white love of Tiger and Oprah indicates that as racists go, we are rank amateurs.

And for the record, this is not new. Sometime before your first memoir, back when black cultural icons needed two names, whites felt the same way and poured millions and millions of dollars into the hands of Michael Jordan and Bill Cosby. Ever hear of “I want to be like Mike?” It was an ad campaign aimed at white kids. You must have heard — being the athletic politician from Chicago and all. Or were you still suffering in Hawaii at the time?

The point is, not only are we rank amateurs as racists now, we have been that way for a few decades. The Cosby’s were welcomed into more white living rooms than Sidney Poitier ever dreamt. We even now have a black guy starring as the “Wild Wild West.” And I think he’s pretty good at it. That is progress, though you won’t hear about it in Al Sharpton’s fund raising letters.

Sure, there are racists among us. I say some are among your staff, those in the pulpit at Trinity United Church and the Harvard faculty for instance. That’s not the point. As a nation, we are decidedly NOT racist when compared to other nations. And if you’re talking about a nation, that’s the sole intellectually honest measure.

Consider: Would a Kurd ever reach icon status in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq? Has there ever been a Mayan who captured the hearts and minds of Mexico? Would Ukrainians ever buy millions of books simply because a Chechen said to do so?

Heck no — and these are folks who look much more alike than black Americans and white Americans. We can’t even tell these folks apart “without a program” so to speak. Note the term is “balkanization” and not “Americanization.”

And speaking of folks who kind of look alike but cannot stand each other, have you noticed that even the “friends” of the Palestinians do not want them living anywhere near them? So-called “supporters” of the Palestinians want to live with them about as much as Fred Sanford wanted to live next to Julio the Puerto Rican — for the same “there goes the neighborhood” reasoning.

Of course Sanford wasn’t racist — because blacks can’t be.

Meanwhile, tribal wars still rage across Rwanda, Sudan, Uganda, The Congo, Darfur and much of Africa where pre-teen boys are conscripted as soldiers and pre-teen girls are taken as their “child mothers.” Tribal wars is just a nice way of saying race wars between races that look essentially the same.

Nothing like this has ever happened in our country and certainly is not happening today. Yet, Gates is all worried about racist cops and being burdened with being a “black man in America.”

He should spend an afternoon as the white guy paired with Tiger, the Cablinasian-American.

The point is — the United States — all 57 of them — have done more to correct our own racial wrongs than any nation in world history. We are way ahead of many nations much older than our little experiment in freedom and self-governance. Painful steps like the Civil War and the Republican led Civil Rights Act were forced corrections that simply moved the country more in line with our Constitutional principles of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

And the result is a country where whites and blacks are free to choose their own heroes and heroines. It works. Currently the best way for a white author to sell books to a white audience is to get added to a black woman’s book club.

And nothing government did — nothing that Jeremiah Wright preached — or Professor Gates taught — is relevant here at all. Or if it is relevant, it is only so as a negative force.

These are whites and blacks pursuing their own life, liberty and happiness through mutual associations. And while I think the country is making a really good choice in Tiger and a bad one with Oprah, the fact is I celebrate the fact that this is freedom in action. Free enterprise. Free markets. Free association. Even a little evil profit motive thrown in.

So how can you and Mr. Gates and Pastor Wright be so wrong about our country?

How is it that you are so stunned by the reaction to your stupid cop comment?

Hmmm.

Perhaps in your Ivy League-Beltway- Media elite universe you are so surrounded by racists of all colors you are blind to the fact that the rest of us are working it out pretty well without your help. (Ok, we’ll call them “race focused.”)

After all, we know the Democratic Party was glad to finally have a “clean articulate black guy” like you on the ticket. We heard it from a brilliant government employee of some 40 years. I think he picked it up in that diner that had been closed for 29 years.

We’ve seen scared Republicans like Lindsay Graham pretend your Supreme Court Nominee — that wise Latina woman — is not “race-focused.” We’ve seen erudite and enlightened luminaries like Colin Powell, Christopher Buckley and Peggy Noonan fall under your spell as well – preferring you to a white hick governor from Alaska.

Come to think of it, maybe there IS a racist America after all. I think it can be found among the media elites, the civil rights activists, the magnificent centrist pundits, Ivy League faculties, scared CEO’s, liberals in congress and moderate Republicans in the areas of Washington and New York.

Allow me to apologize for our country.

 

Academia Nut Gruber to face the Music Today on Capitol Hill

by C. Edmund Wright on December 9, 2014

Gruber with book "Health Care Reform for Dummies." I hope he read it.....

Gruber with book “Health Care Reform for Dummies.” I hope he read it…..

So today Dr. Jonathon Gruber – that faculty lounge cowboy who bragged on numerous videos about how he helped the Obama administration and the Democrats use “the stupidity of the voters” to sneak Obama Care into law – will have ‘some splaining to do Lucy’ today. He is set to face Darrell Issa’s Congressional Oversight Committee.

The gaffe alert is on HIGH today inside the Beltway – as this panel will not much resemble the other egg head know-nothings that Gruber routinely chats with inside the faculty lounge (or other friendly venues of academia nuts). It’s going to be really interesting to see if the Democrats on the Committee try and defend Gruber – or if they’ll keep up their “Jonathon who? Never heard of him” routine.

 

 

 

 

Democrats Go “Oh for the South” as Landrieu is Crushed by Bill Cassidy

December 8, 2014

It was a preordained result – Mary Landrieu was not going to be returned to the U.S. Senate by the voters of a state who cannot stand Barack Obama and Harry Reid-  even more than they love the pork that comes with a Senator with seniority. That she lost by 14, and not 20 plus, […]

And now we hear from the Low Testosterone Republicans….David Brooks and Little Peter Wehner

November 23, 2014

Ah yes, the low testosterone Republicans are weighing in this week, apparently hoping that the country will be too stupid (apologies to Dr. Gruber) to know what and why they voted for November 4th. And in case you don’t know what I mean by low-T Republicans – and I did just make up the term […]

Shutdown Hangover for GOP? Not Even a Smidgeon of Evidence (but evidence of need for virtual Congress)

November 18, 2014

NOTE: this piece is also published at American Thinker.  It’s hard to go more than a few hours without being slapped in the face with some example how out of touch Washington’s wizards are with the country that is increasingly ruled by those same mavens. And there is no more compelling example of this dynamic […]

Not just Obama Care will be swamped by Gruber: Good bye Mitt 2016!

November 15, 2014

He is the gift that keeps on giving….. Jonathon Gruber, in his arrogant condescending honesty, has done the nation several tremendous favors. The most obvious, of course, is that he has dramatically increased the chances that the Supreme Court will strike down the heart of the law in the upcoming cases before the court – […]

Jonathon Gruber? Who is Jonathon Gruber? (Democrats memories may fail, but the internet always remembers)

November 14, 2014

It’s interesting that every single population group in the country is becoming more and more familiar with Obama Care architect Jonathon Gruber – with the exception of elected Democrats. Suddenly, they have no idea who the hell this guy is. What does he know? He didn’t have anything to do with this bill? Nancy Pelosi […]

Obama Care in trouble! Another devastating Gruber video ahead of Supreme Court and King V Burwell.

November 10, 2014

When liberal elitist academia nuts are caught in a rare moment of candor, it is indeed a teachable moment about what liberalism is and what liberal elites think about the rest of the nation. There are few examples that demonstrate this as well as this video, where one of the main architects of Obama Care […]
