Obama Then: “The bill before us will certainly do some good,” Obama said on the Senate floor in October 2006. He praised the legislation, saying it would provide “better fences and better security along our borders” and would “help stem some of the tide of illegal immigration in this country.” Obama was talking about the Secure Fence Act of 2006, legislation authorizing a barrier along the southern border passed into law with the support of 26 Democratic senators including party leaders like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer.
Obama Now: The president pans the Republican front-runner’s proposal as ‘half-baked’ and ‘impractical.’ President Barack Obama has a message for Donald Trump about the Republican front-runner’s plan to force Mexico to pay for a border wall: “Good luck with that.”
Senator Obama on Illegal Immigration: ““We agree on the need to better secure the border and punish employers who continue to hire illegal immigrants. We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States, but those who continue to enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law, and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants.” (CSPAN)
Obama on rigging elections from October 2016: “There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America’s elections…There is no evidence that has happened in the past, or that there are instances that that could happen this time…So I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining.” Note: the state of North Carolina uncovered 600 illegal votes cast in the presidential election. Doesn’t seem like a lot and certainly wouldn’t change the outcome, right? Remember “the hanging chads” in Florida? Bush beat Gore for the presidency by LESS than 600 votes. Elections ARE fixed. FIXING ELECTIONS matters.
Liberal Logic about Bush 45: He put people in Gitmo and killed terrorists with drones…..He’s a War Criminal
Liberal Logic about Obama: He put people in Gitmo and killed terrorists with drones…..He’s a Responsible World Leader
Chuck Schumer’s myriad of stances of Senate filibuster of Supreme Court nominees: In 2007, the New York Senator said that the Democratic majority should block any of President George W. Bush’s remaining Supreme Court
nominations. “”We should reverse the presumption of confirmation… we should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances,” he argued. “They must prove by actions not words that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.” Fast forward to 2016 with the death ofAntonin Scalia with Obama making a Supreme Court nomination. Schumer said this: “Here, Mitch McConnell doesn’t even know who the president’s going to propose and he said, no, we’re not having hearings; we’re not going to go forward to leave the Supreme Court vacant at 300 days in a divided time. This kind of obstructionism isn’t going to last. And you know, we Democrats didn’t do this. .…even though that’s exactly what Schumer proposed a decade earlier. Fast forward to a recent appearance by Schumer on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show. Maddow argued that the Democrats should refuse to fill the empty seat for the entirety of Trump’s four-year presidency. “It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support. So you’re right,” he responded. “And so you will do your best to hold the seat open?” asked Maddow. “Absolutely,” Schumer said.
Liberals on Slavery and the Democrat Party’s Historical Support of African Americans, Voting rights for African Americans, and the abolition of Segregation: The Democrat Party has always commanded a morally superior position on all things racial and continually bash any conservative who indicates any support whatsoever of black and other minorities. Democrats almost always when confronted by Republicans or other conservatives initially scream “racist” and trumpet discrimination charges against any and all who disagree with them. The Truth?
13th Amendment: Abolish Slavery
100% Republican Support
23% Democrat Support
14th Amendment: Gave Citizenship to Freed Slaves
94% Republican Support
0% Democrat Support
15th Amendment: Right to Vote for All
100% Republican Support
0% Democrat Support
Nancy Pelosi on the ACA (Obamacare) and the most recent replacement plan for Obamacare: regarding the replacement, she wrote this to House Speaker Paul Ryan: “The American people and Members have a right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in Committee or by the whole House.” 1. This is the same woman whose most famous quote, regarding the ACA, is “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it….” 2. The law the Republicans want to replace with something the “American people and Members have a right to know the full impact of … before any vote in Committee or by the whole House” was one that almost no Democrats read before voting for it, so even they didn’t understand its “full impact.” 3. The ACA passed in this manner included a mandate that Pelosi and her party swore was not a tax but a penalty, and then when the law was challenged argued to the Supreme Court that it wasn’t a penalty, but a tax. 4. The President of the United States who signed the ACA materially misrepresented the impact of the law repeatedly by stating that it allowed Americans who wanted to keep their current health plans to do so.
Summary: Those in Congress may wonder why their approval ratings with the American people are so low. The above illustrate why those in Congress are so mistrusted. The media — especially liberal media — are mistrusted by Americans at an almost identical rate as that of Congress. Why? The same reason(s). I could share page after page of specific examples from speeches, videos, editorials, printed fact sheets that show just how ridiculous the hypocrisy at the federal level has become and how nauseated Americans are at having it fed to them daily.
The biggest reason for the rejection of these politicians and media members is that the default position for them all is that Americans are too stupid to know the truth and to know the lies told to them by these elitists. The problem for these elitists is that they actually believe Americans don’t get them! Lost in all this is the political, personal, and economic environment of the nation that desperately needs good leadership — REAL leadership from honest news organizations and political parties and members who respect voters, honor laws and the U.S. Constitution and who value the truth at all costs.
Make no mistake: Republicans and Independents share their own measures of hypocrisy. It just seems that elitists are quite a bit more “in the faces” of Americans with their very own special brand of hypocrisy. Also don’t think for a minute (as these elitists do) that World leaders believe the hypocritical crap being spoon fed to the World by American elitists. Those foreign leaders invented hypocrisy and elitism long before America was even discovered yet alone became a country. We today ARE the laughing stock of the World — especially in Europe.
“IF” we can recover from this it will require not just one leader but a group of leaders over multiple election cycles to win back the trust of the American people as well as that of foreign country leaders and their constituents. The Democrats own the current “marching order” sent every day to Americans and it must be silenced: “Do as I say not as I do.” I am not certain of where on Earth that edict might actually work today as it has in the past. I assure you that the cat is out of the bag. America better get it’s stuff together.
