That Was Then, This Is Now. No Principles! by The Elephant's Child

Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave When First We Practice to Deceive! by The Elephant's Child

JonathanGruberI’m glad that MIT economist Jonathan Gruber has been so forthcoming with his opinion of American voters, and the lies the Left had to tell to get even the Democrats to pass the bill. He not only said that we’re stupid, he repeated it over and over. Something of a blabbermouth, but he earned a cool $5.2 million from his advisory efforts.

The State of Vermont which had just hired him as a consultant on their health care program, has just concluded their association, and other consulting jobs may turn out to be a little scarce. Who wants or needs their deepest secrets exposed?

A Cynical Speech, Breathtaking in Its Arrogance and Hypocrisy by The Elephant's Child

It is often assumed that occupants of the Oval Office live in a bit of a bubble, isolated from the American people, and consequently out-of-touch. With President Obama, it goes deeper. He lives in a fantasy world, transforming events into something more comfortable to live with. Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in carefully prepared remarks that “President Obama wears being called ‘an Emperor’ as a badge of honor.” So he does notice a little of what is going on out in the world.


This one came from Jon Gabriel, editor at Ricochet. The cherub at the bottom is undoubtedly an anchor baby.

One of Obama’s first acts in office was to stop construction of the fence at the border. It was Obama who instructed the border patrol and ICE to stop deporting people, to pull back from the border, and whose efforts in Central American countries insinuated that children who crossed the border would not be deported, and caused the vast influx of illegal aliens. It was Obama who sent the “unaccompanied minors” all over the country and enrolled them in local schools who were completely unprepared for such an influx of young people requiring special services at vast cost.

When I took office, I committed to fixing this broken immigration system. And I began by doing what I could to secure our borders. Today, we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history. And over the past six years, illegal border crossings have been cut by more than half. Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years. Overall, the number of people trying to cross our border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970s. Those are the facts.

Uh huh. That’s why members of ICE are suing the government for not allowing them to do the jobs they are required to do. That’s why the Houston Independent School District suddenly has 3,000 new students to deal with, and unknown numbers of other school districts around the 50 states  are dealing with unknown numbers, because the federal government won’t tell where they have shipped the kids.

Obama’s speech is self-glorifying nonsense. False facts, pretty phrases, and attempts to turn reality into something more palatable. Won’t wash. Here is the text of the speech, should you care to read it. Frankly, I didn’t have the stomach for it.

He always ends his most divisive speeches with a pitiful anecdote about a suffering child or the like. This one has all the hallmarks of being completely made up. It’s almost sad watching the Democratic Party commit suicide.

Bwa ha ha ha. I just started to go to to get the text of the speech, entered the website, and this is what I got:


Destroying A Legacy, Brick by Brick by The Elephant's Child

What a stunningly hypocritical speech. Breathtaking in its arrogance and cynicism, not to mention the illegality.

One of the first things Obama said: “We expect people to play by the rules.” Then he said “We are a nation of laws.” This is the man who, when  he won the election, went to Springfield to travel up to Washington D.C. just like Lincoln did. When he took the oath of office, he demanded to use the Lincoln Bible. And he said:

I solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the
Office of the President of the United States,
and will to the best of my Ability,
preserve, protect and defend
The Constitution of the United States.

And apparently he didn’t mean a word of it. Why should we be surprised? He has stated twenty times that he cannot legally do this.
