And the (Fascist) Beat Goes On…

The Obama Administration demontrate their fascist side: Geithner to Banks: Get Federal Help, Government Decides Your Executive Line-Up: WASHINGTON — The government may require new faces in executive suites at banks requiring “exceptional assistance” in the future, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Sunday. Critics of the Obama administration’s move last weekend to force out the […]

Obama’s Mob Rule

A great piece by Alex Epstein at the Ayn Rand Institute: Mob Rule Comes to Washington: In dealing with AIG, why are people pussyfooting around? They believe that the bonus money was stolen from the public and must be retrieved by any means possible. So why not bypass the niceties and just send in some […]

Newspaper Calls Obama’s Economic Plan What It Is: Fascism

This is a remarkable editorial for its clarity: First the banks, now the automakers: Skipping right to the end: It appears the president and his men have entirely lost track of — if they ever really grasped — the fact that in America, major industries are not run by the government, and for good reason. […]

Surprise! Government Doesn’t Want Banks to Give Back TARP Money

Really, if anyone’s surprised that government doesn’t want banks to buy back their freedom by repaying TARP funds, I have some swampland I’d like to get rid of: Obama Wants to Control the Banks: I must be naive. I really thought the administration would welcome the return of bank bailout money. Some $340 million in […]

Obama’s Bow: Recognizing the Sovereignty of a Tyrant

I remain deeply disturbed by Obama’s bowing to the Saudi King. First, there’s the issue of the fact that bowing to a monarch signifies one’s recognition of the monarch’s power. In America, we’re not supposed to recognize the power of autocrats, over us or anyone else. Second, Saudi Arabia is not our friend, and the […]

Obama Administration Tells North Korea: “Whatevah!”

Via Little Green Footballs… Obama’s most important role is to act as Commander in Chief. And so, what does his Defense Secretary do? Declares ahead of time that the United States will not act against a foreign power’s threatening actions: Gates: U.S. Not Prepared to Respond to North Korea Missile Launch: The United States can […]

Emperor Obama Tells GM CEO To Commit Hari-kiri

When one thinks of a distressed company receiving strict marching orders for things like restructuring, contracts, etc., one thinks of bankruptcy court. Apparently, Emperor Obama has taken that responsibility upon himself: GM CEO resigns at Obama’s behest: The Obama administration asked Rick Wagoner, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, to step down and he […]

Resignation Letter from “Evil” AIG Executive

Congress and the Obama Administration simply must have known the nature of the AIG contracts, bonuses, employee status, etc., and so when they stirred up populist hatred against hardworking people, they were guilty of terrible moral–and probably legal-crimes. It’s simply unfathomable to any rational person that the political leaders of a nation of laws (not […]

Obama – Worse Than Imagined

Take a few minutes to read this: Obama’s “Extreme Makeover” of America: It is hard to decide any more which current government-spawned disasters and those to come one should dwell on. As on the popular TV program, ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,“ President Barack Obama is overseeing the demolition of the remnants of a republic […]
