Barry “Almighty” used his idiotic weekly address, something I’m quite sure his devoted followers, and many political minions, wait for with great anticipation, to list those things which he believes are the Top 10 things that happened in these United States in 2015. Those of us who are not big fans of Barry could care less about his weekly bullshit message and would, I’m sure, prefer not to be reminded of Barry’s antics from the last 12 months. Anyway, it was on Barry’s list that the nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage and what he referred to as the “Christmas Miracles” of the budget deal he made with the Republican Congress and the new law he signed, that came in Number 2 and Number 3 on his list.
Barry said that this is the most wonderful time of the year. And, he said, not just for spreading holiday cheer – but also for making lists. He says there are wish lists; Santa’s list; and of course, a blizzard of year-in-review lists. So, he said, “I decided to get in on the action.” So Barry came up with a top ten list, of sorts, of what were those things that he views as being reason to celebrate as 2015 comes to a close. And I’m sure there are plenty of those who will be only too happy to agree with him. However, those of us who love our country and think that our government has grown entirely too large, too powerful and way too intrusive are far less than thrilled. What we see is very little that can be seen as cause for celebration.
So it was then that what came in at number ten on Barry’s list was the economy. According to Barry it was over the past 12 months that our businesses created 2.5 million new jobs. He also makes the claim that they’ve added 13.7 million new jobs over a 69-month ‘streak’ of job growth. And the unemployment rate has fallen to 5 percent – the lowest it’s been in almost eight years. Now off course what Barry so very conveniently left out is the fact that the last time we had this many Americans not participating in the nation’s workforce it was during the presidency of yet another Socialist and Moslem sympathizer, Jimmy Carter. Nor did Barry choose to include the fact that since he became president we now have millions more Americans who are now on food stamps or the millions more in poverty.
Number nine on Barry’s list is his claim that more Americans are now able to get health coverage. Barry makes the claims that the rate of uninsured in America has dropped below 10 percent for the first time ever. In all, he said, 17.6 million people and climbing have now gained coverage as the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, has taken effect. He said, “And don’t forget, you can still sign up through January 31st at HealthCare.gov.” But again he neglects to mention the millions of Americans who lost their insurance, because of Obamacare, or those who were forced to purchase far more expensive coverage with exorbitant premiums and huge deductibles. Nor does he bother to mention the millions of Americans who lost their Doctors after being promised dozens of times that such a thing would never happen.
Barry said number eight on is his list was America’s global leadership on ‘climate change’. He said, “Last week, in Paris, nearly 200 countries came together to set the course for a low-carbon future. And it was only possible because America led with clean energy here at home and strong diplomacy around the world.” So let me see if I have this right. Barry brags about America assuming global ‘leadership’ on an issue that roughly only 3 percent of Americans actually see as being, even remotely, an important issue. And yet he adamantly refuses to lead on the far more serious, even deadly, issue of ‘Radical Islamic’ terrorism. Anyway, it’s much easier to ‘lead’ on an issue that doesn’t exist than on one that actually does exist.
Number seven on Barry’s list was something that he referred to as being, ‘Progress in the Americas.’ He bragged about having “turned the page on an outdated, half-century old policy by re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba and reopening embassies in both our countries, allowing us to build greater ties between Americans and Cubans.” But there were thousands of Cuban-Americans who were very vocal in their opposition. And he made absolutely no mention of those who remain in Cuban prisons for anything other than what are called ‘offenses against the state”. These political prisoners seem to be of very little concern to Barry. Because it is far more important to cozy up to another communist dictator.
Barry calls number six on his yearend list, “Preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.” His basis for saying such a thing is the disastrous nuclear ‘deal’ made with Iran. According to Barry, “We succeeded in forging a strong deal to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. In fact, Iran has already dismantled thousands of centrifuges that enrich uranium.” This ‘agreement’ made with Iran is nothing if not an absolute farce. Barry seems to take great pride in the arranging of an agreement that the Iranians were busy breaking the same day that it was signed. A deal where John Kerry-Heinz, at the direction of Barry, literally gave away the store much in the same manner that Paul Ryan did in the recent spending bill.
And coming in at number five on Barry’s list is how America has stood strong against terrorism. He said, “Even as we continue to grieve over the attack in San Bernardino, we’re leading a global coalition and hitting ISIL harder than ever. In Syria and Iraq, ISIL is losing territory, and we’re not going to stop until we destroy this terrorist organization.” That Barry could make this statement with a straight face is itself something of an accomplishment that deserves to be on his 2015 list. The sad truth is that Barry is nothing more than a Moslem sympathizer. During his tenure as president we have gone for the ‘War on Terror’ to an ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’ to what has now become that which is nothing more than a joke!
Next on Barry’s list coming in at number four is TPP. This is what Barry called the 21st century trade deal that makes sure our businesses can sell goods “Made in America” across the Asia-Pacific. Barry said, “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is the strongest, most pro-worker, pro-environment trade agreement in our history. And it means that America – not China, not anyone else – will write the rules of the global economy for the century ahead.” Now if you take the time to talk to anyone who knows anything at all about this disaster and you very quickly come to understand how it has a damaging effect on the sovereignty of our nation, which is one reason that Barry want’s it passed. And it’s far from a good deal for American workers.
Number three on Barry’s list is what he described as being a pair of Christmas miracles in Washington! You may recall how it was that earlier this week the Republicans handed to Barry and the Democrats, in the form of a $1.1 Trillion spending bill, absolutely everything they wanted. Described in very positive terms a being a bipartisan budget that invests in middle-class priorities, keeps our military the strongest in the world, and takes the threat of shutdowns and manufactured crises off the table for 2016. Also considered as being part of number three on Barry list is a bipartisan education bill he signed into law that he claim will help our students graduate prepared for college and their future careers.
When we get to number two on Barry’s list things get simply dishonest. Here’s where Barry spoke of Love. He said 2015 was the year that ‘Love’ won. He said, “No matter who you are, here in America, you’re free to marry the person you love, because the freedom to marry is now the law in all fifty states.” For the longest time Barry position seemed to depend on which way the political winds were blowing at the time he was asked where he stood on the issue. He always went out his way to leave sufficient wiggle room in an effort to make it difficult for anyone in the state-controlled media to pin him down. Not that they would make much of an effort to do so. But in 2012, an election year, he ‘came out’ in full support of gay marriage.
And the number one reason why Barry is so optimistic going into 2016 is because of, or so he says, us, the American people. He says the ‘progress’ that was made is all because of us. Because of workers rolling up their sleeves and getting the job done, and entrepreneurs starting new businesses. Because of teachers and health workers and parents—all of us taking care of each other. Because of our incredible men and women in uniform, serving to protect us all. Because, he says, when we’re united as Americans, there’s nothing that we cannot do. What a bunch of bunk. Because it has been during Barry’s presidency that the entrepreneurial spirit has been crushed and he has a deep-seeded loathing for ALL those in uniform, regardless which uniform.
So here we have Barry’s list of the those things that convinced him that 2015 was a banner year, and why it is that he is so looking forward to 2016. But I would argue that there is but one reason why Barry has been able to achieve any level of success during his presidency, at least since 2011. And it has not been because of the American people, but in spite of them. It’s been because of the gutless Republicans in Congress. A great deal of promises were made in 2014, and they worked. But once again the Republicans have refused to keep their promises. They’ve done nothing to get rid of Obamacare and they’ve done nothing to reign in Barry’s lawlessness regarding illegal immigration. They’ve done nothing but allow Barry to succeed.
