Watching Obama and Joe Biden point the Finger at Responsible Gun Owners and the GOP in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday makes me Sick and then watching John McCain made me EVEN Sicker—HOW is this Possible?

SPRING SESSION 2016

BLOGPOST #2,036 AT THE AICP-END


If we cannot call the president out in his final six months in office, then when the hell can we
Delano, CA, 06-18-2016 Saturday: I have to admit that I am pissed off, not with the readership or the common ill-educated Democrat voter.  I am angry that Barack Obama and the groper-in-chief VP, Joe Biden, would go to Orlando, Florida, where they talk about taking guns out of the hands of the American people while berating Republicans as ‘haters’ and ‘bigots.’  I am neither and I believe that whenever terrorist acts happen, you go after the perpetrators and not the people who have done nothing to warrant the government robbing them of their firearms.  We live in a topsy-turvy world, one, in which up is down, and wrong acceptable to the ruling class instead of ‘right.’
What angers me even more is that when that senile old codger in Arizona, Senator John McCain actually says the TRUTH—‘that Barack Obama is responsible for what happened in Orlando (on Saturday night/Sunday morning) because he will do nothing to limit the number of Muslims entering the country’—the old fool walks it back. 
Senator, you hit the nail atop the head and drove it home so why when a member of the liberal news media thrusts a microphone in your face, you begin stammering and stuttering like the ancient mummy you are—stand up and be a man, for Christ’s sake. 
Here is the deal, if John McCain still has terror of Barack Obama seven-and-a-half years after losing to him in the 2008 General Election, perhaps we all should have concern if we criticize the worst president in the United States. 
Well, I have sat and given it a great deal of thought and I believe that if we cannot go after this worthless thug—that’s right, I used the word, “THUG”—in his final six months, then we as a people and as the GOP are feckless fools.  We deserve WHATEVER he drops on us.
In addition, I believe that all of us who use the Internet put ourselves at risk to government intrusion.  The reason for this belief is that when Net Neutrality received the president’s signature back in 2014, I believe, it began the transformation of the Net from a free-and-open place where ALL views appeared to one of being a ‘national utility.’ 
I think the Democrats in Congress and their number one ally in the White House envy the power the Chinese, the Russians, the North Koreans, and other dictatorships around the world possess when it comes to controlling what their people see and do online. 
Even though we are a minor blog, one whom some suspect is the product of one or two people (which it is not), we believe that the government intrudes upon us all of the time.  Why do computers with the best safeguards money can buy occasionally go through the glitches where everything is running fine and then some unseen force begins messing things up? I doubt it is Vladimir Putin spying on us.  
Furthermore, when you have a top-of-the-line monitor that you have used for a while, when you suddenly see a red glowing light within the monitor that was not there before, where the heck did that come from and did someone insert some sort of camera into it to spy on the user?  We do not even trust our tech support people anymore.
Ah, well, we have managed to circumvent some of these things through increased security but the evidence is there for the observant to discern that someone—whether it is the federal government or an outside entity—finds interest in what a little chef living and working in Delano, California, has to say.  After all, to them, I am a NOBODY.   
In essence, I believe we are on the cusp of a government attack across numerous fronts on our First Amendment and Second Amendment rights.  We hear free speech suffering all-out assault if one speaks ill of Muslims, transgenders using whatever bathroom and locker rooms they choose, and promoting people to buy and learn to use firearms for their OWN personal safety. 
What’s more, when we hear someone such as Senator Joe Manchin babble that, the problem is ‘not jihad but Due Process under the law,’ meaning that Due Process binds our government’s hands from going after and arresting terrorists, potential and real, it tells me that the government feels constrained and chafed by the confines of the Constitution. 
At one time, I used to respect Senator Manchin because he seemed to be a Democrat who believed in guarantees listed under the Second Amendment but now that he has been in office for nearly a full term, he wants to toe the line and raise the cry that we need to deny people their rights to protect them. 
Everyone knows President Obama has a soft spot in whatever he calls a heart for Muslims.  He will NEVER speak ill of them, he will always praise them.  Groups such as ISIS, well, he says they do NOT represent the Islamic faith because Islam is a ‘religion of peace’—maybe in their flipping dreams! 
Folks, Obama will NEVER criticize the faith because as I have surmised in previous posts, I am beginning to believe that the man is still putting his forehead to the floor five times a day.  Who knows? 
Perhaps comments such as this will invite scrutiny by the Department of Justice and visits from both the Secret Service and John Koskinen’s Internal Revenue Service.  Maybe even from the ATF to seize my lawfully owned firearms?  Bring it on, folks, bring it on, you know where to find me.
Again, we are on the verge of seeing our nation go from the great one it once was into the dark pit of fascism.  Ronald Reagan was the last freedom-loving president we had but his successor, George H.W. Bush, set us on the decline through using the military to do things we should not have done such as invading Panama to conduct ‘regime change.’ 
He set the path for his son to one day emulate.   
HIS successor, Bill Clinton, a deviant with a yearning for hummers (not the vehicle) and cigars, allowed the terrorist entities to grow under his watch as cancer metastasizes throughout the body of a sufferer into global players.  Al-Qaida was just the start, it got a foothold in Third World crap-holes and then when George W. Bush assumed the Oval Office, he had a chance to either defeat it or allow terrorism to speed throughout the Middle East and other Muslim nations. 
What George W. Bush did was following the necessary invasion of Afghanistan, for some reason, he either kept private a desire to finish the work begun by his father and invaded Iraq.  Many people at the time did NOT want him to do this because we did not see the correlation between Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al-Qaida.  Yes, we know that Saddam allowed al-Qaida a ‘presence’ in his country but more to keep a close EYE upon them than to aid them in their relentless pursuit of conflict with the West. 
If anyone fit the bill of being a sponsor of global terror, that would be the now-dead Libyan strongman, Moammar Gaddafi (the one Hillary Clinton took out), as well as our longtime enemy, the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Both of these countries funded and promoted Islamic terror throughout the world, whether Sunni (Libya) or Shia (Iran), the two countries engaged in its spread. 
Thanks to George W. Bush invading Iraq and then allowing the Democrats to destroy his victory albeit a long and bloody one, it opened the final set of doors for his successor.  If Barack Hussein Obama opened one door, he inherited a stable Iraq with free elections and if he opened the other door, he set in motion the unstoppable growth of militant Islam that would become ISIS.
Only President Obama calls the organization, “ISIL,” why does he do this?  He uses the term because it means the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.”  The Levant is an OLD term meaning ‘the territory south of Turkey to the bottom of Egypt.’  Included within this domain, is the ONE nation Obama despises more than his OWN nation:  Israel. 
The Israelis know the 44th president of the United States hopes to see their destruction and my belief is that the president akin to ‘Oz the Great and Powerful,’ operating from behind the curtain, wants to set in motion something that will bring about the demise of the Jewish state. 
The next six months should be VERY interesting as the president attempts to disarm the people through prodding the Republicans to join with the Democrats in pushing through massive gun control bills.  All I can say is that his agents are going to have one hell of a time attempting to disarm the American people because we are not going to permit it.  There are not enough prisons to hold all of us nor are there enough government hacks willing to do it. 
We will continue with more of this conversation tomorrow.         
Thank you,

This is a photo of me back in 1973 while being the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue. I was in my late 30's at the time. I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years. Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics.
