THE ESSENTIAL OBAMA

Can you imagine the coverage the BBC would have provided had George W Bush signed the WRONG YEAR in a visitor’s book at Westminster Abbey or entirely fluffed a toast to Her Majesty? But when Obama does it, why it a mere “hiccup”. One rule for one….

      Natsman, he is even more than that – he apparently has British roots too!

      I linked to David Vance’s blog and some idiot has commented that Sarah Palin gets a “Bye-ball” with all her gaffes.  That’s not the Sarah Palin we know whose every stumble is made into a level of gross incompetence by the MSM, BBC in particular.  They even “wittily” ask if Obama will be able to see Russia from Warsaw.  Ho ho I must leave for the hospital to have my sides restitched.  There’s no end to the lying of the left-wingers.

        Absolutely right, Demon. They leaped on “refudiate”, but have censored all reports of any Obamessiah errors, and now are actually covering up for Him.  In fact, the “hiccup” DV links to above is evidence of the BBC protecting the President like North Korean media covering for the Dear Leader.  That piece stretches the truth to try to convince you that it was in fact the band’s error and not His.  Which is a lie.

    Nicky Campbell introduced his phone-in on Obama this morning by recalling the feeling of excitement at the BBC when He was elected. Realising what he was said might sound somewhat less than impartial he tried to cover himself by claiming it wasn’t about politcs, but about what Obama represented or something. Might put a clip up of it later if I get time.

            Yes, it is so blatantly a cock-up by Obama. Why should anyone be apologising to him ?  He should be apologising to the Queen.
            If he is happy to accept the hospitality and £700 bottles of wine he should have the decency to learn basic protocol.
            Obama’s problem is that he has no class, and I don’t mean in the snobbery sense of the word !

    The End Of Habeas Corpus: This Is “Justice” In Obama’s America

    By Kenneth J. Theisen

    25 May, 2010
    Worldcantwait.net

    On Friday, May 21, 2010 the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of the Obama administration, holding that three prisoners who are being held by the U. S. at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan cannot challenge their detention in U.S. courts.

    This is a victory for reaction, essentially denying prisoners of the U.S. war of terror held at Bagram the right to habeas corpus.

    The denial of this basic right means that these prisoners have no right to a hearing in which a judge would review the evidence against them and could potentially order their release. This is “justice” in Obama’s America. The Obama administration has once again advanced the political and legal agenda begun by the Bush regime. If this ruling is not overturned, many prisoners of the U.S. war of terror could be held indefinitely.

     

     

    of course I’m no bleeding heart liberal retard,but ordinary citizens could now face this as well as the mozzie whackjob terrorists

    “When he was elected, I mean, I just well remember this newsroom. It was nothing to do with politics, it was to do with the racial history of the US and of the Western world, the fact that that family was going to be in the White House. It was truly an historical moment. He came into office, his words were, y’know, right out of the Martin Luther King books of speeches. He was a wonderful, a wonderful orator.”

    I thought some of PM Netanyau’s speech must have had an effect on Pres. Obama. The way he spoke just now in the David Cameron/Obama news conference showed considerably more awareness of Israel’s difficulties than before. No mention of settlements being the obstacle to peace, and an almost sympathetic explanation of the impossibility of negotiating with people whose only reason for being is your elimination.
     It was Cameron who let the side down, with his use of the word ‘borders’ instead of the more sensitive term ‘lines,’ demonstrating that he hasn’t done his homework. Presumably he has to think of the Muslim vote.
    Here’s an open letter to Liam Fox from Denis MacEoin which is worth reading.
    If anyone is as unaware of the case for Israel as Liam Fox must be, it makes you wonder why he even wanted to be thought of as a supporter. Keeping the world in ignorance is the biggest ‘recruiting sergeant’ for the Palestinian cause possible. (That’s why we’re here.)

    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      It’s not even understandable to write 2010 five months into the new year.  But The Obamessiah is simply not as wonderfully brilliant as the Beeboids claim.  The explanation for this latest error is simple: 2008 is when He was in His glory, and gave that rock-star speech in Germany.  Celebrating Himself is first and foremost on His mind, so it’s perfectly understandable that He’d be fixated on 2008 and just got lost in the reverie.

    After listening to the endless White House propaganda about this campaign tour of non-voting states, I’m struck by the glaring absence of one key perspective.  The talking heads and Beeboids are full of praise for how the President’s foreign policy speeches are playing well back home and will help Him in the election, they are not mentioning why.  
     
    People approve of His foreign policy actions because it’s a continuation of the Bush Doctrine.  There’s still plenty of discontent back home about His handling of domestic issues, especially the economy.  But the BBC isn’t mentioning that at all, because today we’ve come to praise Caesar and not to bury Him.

    Following all the gushing praise of the President, the News Channel just did a special segment celebrating the final episode of Oprah Winfrey’s show.  There couldn’t have been more adoration.  But here’s something left unremarked by the Beeboids:

    With all the talk of racism and racist US bastards not wanting a black President, etc., how does the massive white fanbase of Oprah square with the BBC’s Narrative?  This black woman has a huge influence on millions of people in the US, which means millions of white people love her to death.  Are they still racist if they don’t want to vote for the black President?  How can all those racists love Oprah, then?

    A black woman simply could not become as popular and powerful in a country that’s as racist as the BBC claims.

    Check out BBC favourite Dan “The History Guy” Snow’s gushing appraisal of the ObamaMarr interview.

    The “Son of Heaven” bit (that’s right, Son of Heaven – follow the second link above if you don’t believe me) refers to British ambassador George Macartney’s meeting with the Quianlong emperor in the 1790s. A big deal was made about Chinese demands that the British kowtow to the Emperor (and that’s what Snow is referring to), but here’s how Macartney later described his experience:

    whenever an insufficient man happens to have the command on deck, adieu to the discipline and safety of the ship. She may, perhaps, not sink outright; she may drift some time as a wreck, and will then be dashed to pieces on the shore; but she can never be rebuilt on the old bottom.”

    Sounds like a good analogy for the trillions of dollars of debt Obama’s stimulus spending has created. I somehow doubt that’s the comparison Dan Snow was trying to draw, though.

        Kaks wrote: “Did anyone hear that vomit fest on Radio 4’s PM this evening. Some bloke was talking to Eddie Mair about Obama, it was a full on Obama love fest”

        I’ve just listened to that exchange. What’s most dispiriting is that the “some bloke” who recounted how he rushed to shake Obama’s hand and said he wouldn’t now wash his own hand for three days was Brooks Newmark – a Tory MP.

        When Eddie Mair told him that fellow Conservative MP Mark Pritchard had criticised Obama for not being more committed to operations in Libya, Newmark responded condescendingly: “I never have many thoughts on Mark Pritchard.” He followed this with some bland Cameroonian waffle, even managing to get in a mention of “environmental challenges”.

        Finally – and this bit beats even the fanboy handshake nonsense – Eddie Mair asked him about Jimmy Carter:

        Mair: All week on the programme we’ve been running archive clips of old presidential speeches from previous speeches to the UK. We’ve got Jimmy Carter coming up later. Do you think he’ll match Obama’s oratory? [Fishing for the desired answer there, eh Eddie?]

        Newmark: Er, not at all, although I have to say that Jimmy Carter was a very smart man, a very smart president, and since he’s stepped down as president has done a lot of good in the world. Um, I think that probably President Obama will go down as one of the, probably the best speakers in history.

        What a sickeningly pathetic display, but sadly not surprising from a member of today’s parliamentary Conservative party. I predict Newmark will do rather well under Cameron.

    I want do a post making fun of Mark Mardell’s latest piece about his beloved Obamessiah, but am unable to log in with this blogpsot/blogger weirdness with Firefox.

    One amusing bit is where Mardell sympathizes with a colleague (he doesn’t say it’s a fellow Beeboid, what whom else whould he refer to as a colleague?) about not wanting to tell the grandchildren that he saw The Obamessiah’s speech only from an editing suite and not in the flesh.  Is it cos He is black?  Utterly pathetic.

    But notice how Mardell makes an utterly ludicrous statement about how some “rising powers” may want to foster democracy but just not “at the point of a gun”. WTF?  Which ones, Mark?  Do tell.

    He also makes it clear that the President’s speech was disappointing only in that He didn’t say exactly what Mardell himself wanted to hear.  Pretty hilarious.  Other personal bias is revealed as usual for a Mardell piece, but it really deserves a full post on its own due to the sheer insanity and inanity of what he’s saying.  Especially where he reveals his inner racist by judging a black man exclusively by the color of his skin and not the content of his character.
