Kingman Letters: Obama's contempt for America
IMAGE: Wikimedia Commons
IMAGE: Wikimedia Commons

Over the past five years of Obama rule, one concept has become clear: America is a great and benevolent power approaching abrupt decline, a mere witness to world events it once shaped. Obama is on a course that emboldens our enemies, alienates our friends and shrinks and weakens our military strength. While Benghazi burned, Obama campaigned. While Egypt and Syria detonate, he goes golfing. His amateurish vacillation over his own dubious "red line" and his obvious support for the Muslim Brotherhood has allowed the entire region to ignite.

His domestic policies have propelled us towards national bankruptcy and constitutional disorder. The IRS and NSA scandals, the Obamacare disaster and government shutdown fiasco reveal the power of Obama. Few realize how close we are to losing our democracy and becoming a totalitarian state. Obama controls all that information about individual lives and has all that power over our finances and health, and can destroy any who oppose his will. The hundreds of executive orders he has written manipulate the government like they were marionettes, dancing to whichever string he pulls.

Meanwhile, he and his wife, family and dog cavort like French royalty, wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars while tens of millions of Americans suffer historic levels of deprivation because of his ruinous fiscal policies.

Obama has no moral conscience, and no one will confront him. No one will hold him to any standard of decency. His boot-lickers claim he is the defender of the underdog, a champion of equality and fairness. If one attacks Obama, they are accused of attacking minorities, women, children and the poor. Yet, Obama has created more poor people than all the presidents in the past 70 years. Today, 47 million people are on food stamps and 100 million are on government handouts.

Obama's policies are reducing America to the level of a third-world nation. They are a continuous example of the level of relentless contempt and disdain Obama has for the American people. (Ref: David Horowitz, "The Freedom Center")

"I find it interesting that you do not comprehend that a check lost in the mail is not indicative of the Social Security Administration failing to send the check."

I find it interesting that your blind, sock-puppet faith in big govt. is so great that you cannot imagine they could ever screw up and fail to issue a SS check for someone.

Considering how error prone a big govt. agency can be, it is possible it happens quite often.

Here are examples of govt. agencies screwing up:

nbcnews(dot)com(slash)id(slash)23378093

"Resurrected but still wallowing in red tape. Govt records incorrectly kill off thousands, and there's no easy fix"

And it is not even a "rightie" source for you to screech about.

Better luck next time.

"Obama said 27 times, "IF YOU LIKE YOUR INSURANCE, YOU CAN KEEP IT - PERIOD. NOONE CAN TAKE IT AWAY FROM YOU. IF YOU LIKE YOUR DR, YOU CAN KEEP HIM - PERIOD"

We now know by a document and others, they KNEW that was a lie and the political people in the White House (that would be, yes, Valerie Jarrett) said go with it over the health care people"

And yet, on this very site, there is a writing that said his wife got to keep her plan. Hmmmm....who is lying then?

“No ones is going down. Most are doubling and tripling.”

How would you know? When have you gone onto an exchange and found out the facts?

My Medicare supplement went down by roughly 5%. My prescription drug costs have dropped dramatically thanks to the ACA. I will not fall into the “doughnut hole” this year, thanks to the ACA. I now have preventive measures available thanks to the ACA.

My kids are all benefiting, with one family seeing a 65% drop in their 2014 premiums over last year, another family finally has access to health care that was previously denied because of “pre-existing” conditions and they now have prescription drug coverage. My stepson has located a plan that suits his needs better than what he was being offered by his employer at a cost of nearly 40% less than what he was paying.

“Duke U people crunched the numbers - 127 MILLION will lose their insurance through 2014.”

Nope, still wrong and always will be. Why do you post this garbage?

“Cruz tried to save us.”

You mean the foreign born son of a Cuban Communist who cost us $24 billion while stuffing over a million bucks in his greedy pockets? Why are you supporting this guy? He does not fit your standards at all.

And BTW – Rand Paul’s record of plagiarism continues to grow with each day.

Just witnessed - Maddow and Matthews using their time to try to bring Rand Paul down with plagiarism....while an elephant named obamagate is sitting on their chest and they are ignoring him.

Obama said 27 times, "IF YOU LIKE YOUR INSURANCE, YOU CAN KEEP IT - PERIOD. NOONE CAN TAKE IT AWAY FROM YOU. IF YOU LIKE YOUR DR, YOU CAN KEEP HIM - PERIOD"

We now know by a document and others, they KNEW that was a lie and the political people in the White House (that would be, yes, Valerie Jarrett) said go with it over the health care people.

So he convincingly lied and people voted for him. He knew he was lying. Rather than come clean, today he made the lie worse.

Duke U people crunched the numbers - 127 MILLION will lose their insurance through 2014. Cruz tried to save us.

No ones is going down. Most are doubling and tripling. It is the worst sort of disaster, imploding on itself while the WH rushes to make up new lies to tell.

And Rachel and Chris - why, they've got the real hot story...and the lousy numbers. .

What is funny is that the so called know nothing president was informed immediately about the shooting at LAX .
But when it comes to the IRS, etc etc he only found out about them from his newspaper and if your dumb enough to believe that you deserve what you voted for.....it is a shame people are so stupid!

Bobber if you want to do the research and learn a little well known history, then get on your beloved snopes website and search for MLk's plagiarism. As for your ACA comment about it being met with "widespread popularity". Why dont you give us some numbers on how popular it is because from what im seeing, its insanely disliked by MOST people who are actually signed up! Whats that number up to 12 today?? Haha lets give a hand to the liberals huh?? They have almost figured out how to work the computer machine!!! The website again, speaks nothing to what ACA is. Its just a sign of how incredibly incompetent your president is!! But you wont recognize that im sure. Also, if you think the ACA will be successful then you are simply as delusional as I suspected. Enjoy the sugar water!

"Then there was Medicare. Also doomed to failure according to the Republiscums, and a B-Movie actor name Reagan went to the airways and told the easily swayed it would be the utter destruction of our nation. Fifty years later those pessimists are using it."

You can run across a busy road without looking and not get hit by a car. However, you can't logically conclude that your mamma was wrong when she told you to never cross the road without looking because you'll get hit by a car.
You need to look at the broad picture. Just because the crisis hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't happen.

It's the same with Medicare and SS. They are both in trouble and headed for insolvency. Republican leaders look ahead and attempt to solve looming problems before they become catastrophes. Democrats prefer to rule via disasters.

Solyndra (Reuters)

The founder of bankrupt solar panel maker Solyndra will likely avoid criminal charges even if charges are brought against other former executives of the company, according to several people familiar with the investigation.
Obama visited the Northern California company in 2010. By then, the company's venture backers had grown unhappy with how it was handling the deteriorating solar panel market, according to emails previously released by Republicans lawmakers investigating the company.

Gronet relinquished his chief executive post soon after Obama's visit. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on September 6, 2011, as it and other solar panel companies reeled in the face of cheap imports from China that drove solar panel prices down.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation launched a probe into whether Solyndra executives had fully disclosed the company's business situation while applying for the government loan.

Solyndra's collapse was a major blow to the Obama Administration's energy policy. The Republican-led House Energy and Commerce Committee ultimately concluded that the Department of Energy had rushed into the deal and ignored warnings to cut its losses.

The White House called the decision to make the Solyndra loan "merit-based" and criticized Congressional Republicans for investigating the issue.

Dear Nephew and a few others out there -
Enough is Enough. First of all, your assertion to fact is based on newspaper letters. You admit that. I would challenge that these letters represent no more of the American population than the respondents here do to any particular issue. Please research verifiable polls and historically accurate research sources that prove your position before you claim the irrefutable accuracy of what is no more that your opinion. Secondly I would challenge you to research sources such as the Encyclopedia Britannica. You might be surprised to read what the Democratic platform really was prior to its reconstruction in the 30's. Same for the Republicans. Your disdain for objective truth is clearly apparent in your last comments to this article. Republiscums and B Movie actor and intellectually challenged. Please use your intelligence and education to educated people and not to incite them through your disinformation for some blind personal agenda.
Have a nice day.

"Three-quarters of a century later SS has never missed a payment"

It is fascinating to read the comments here that border on the orgasmic over problems with the healthcare website. And of course there are the numerous silly comments about the ACA being a total failure, despite the fact it has yet to be fully implemented, while parts currently in effect are meeting with widespread popularity. One can only wonder why the righties seem to thrive on the prospect of failure.

I was prompted to look back in history at various newspapers from the 1930s as Social Security was approved. Letter after letter, along with the condemnation by Republiscums, predicted total doom for not only the program but our nation if SS were to come to fruition. Three-quarters of a century later SS has never missed a payment and all of the pessimists wound up taking advantage of it.

Then there was Medicare. Also doomed to failure according to the Republiscums, and a B-Movie actor name Reagan went to the airways and told the easily swayed it would be the utter destruction of our nation. Fifty years later those pessimists are using it.

And I predict the ACA will also be a success, any bets?

“This whole ACA debacle is about greasing the palms of his contributors.....like solyndra.”

Since Solyndra was pushed by The Criminal and not Obama your statement is seriously flawed. And once again, for your elucidation, here is the Solyndra timeline –

May 2005: Solyndra is founded.

July 2005: The Criminal signs the Energy Policy Act, creating the 1703 loan guarantee program.

February/October 2006: Solyndra raises venture financing worth $34.6 million.

December 2006: Solyndra Applies for a Loan Guarantee under the 1703 program.

2007: Loan guarantee program is funded. Solyndra is one of 16 clean-tech companies deemed ready to move forward.

November 2008: The company raises $144 million from ten different venture investors. Bringing total private investment to more than $450 million.

January 2009: In an effort to show it has done something to support renewable energy, The Criminal takes Solyndra before a DOE credit review committee before President Obama is inaugurated.

March 2009: The credit committee approves the strengthened loan application. The deal passes on to DOE’s credit review board.

In fact, rather than rushing the loan for Solyndra through, the Obama Administration restructured the original Bush-era deal to further protect the taxpayers’ investment.

Does Oboma know anything? Pt#2
The White House didn’t know that Jon Corzine was a raging incompetent. In fact, Joe Biden said that he was the first one they called when they had a financial question.
The White House didn’t know a Mao Tse-Tung ornament was hanging on their Christmas tree for three years in a row though it was mentioned each year.
In 2011, Barack Obama told Bob Woodward that he regretted criticizing Paul Ryan at his budget speech last year. Obama said he would not have attacked Paul Ryan if he would have known Ryan was going to attend the speech. It’s quite miraculous that Obama didn’t know because Obama personally invited Paul Ryan to hear his speech.
Barack Obama didn’t know Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist even though they were colleagues and Ayers launched Obama’s career. Barack didn’t know about Jeremiah Wright’s anti-white, anti-Jewish rants even though he sat in his church for 20 years
The White House said the Churchill bust wasn’t sent back and then he said they didn’t know it was sent back.
Well, does he????????

Does Oboma know anything? Pt#1
The White House didn’t know about the IRS targeting of conservatives President Obama didn’t know a thing. He found out on the Friday when it was printed in the newspapers.
The White House didn’t know that terror training camps were sprouting up all around the Benghazi consulate and they didn’t know about the 200+ attacks in Libya prior to the 9/11 attack. The White House didn’t know about the security requests.
“We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there,” Joe Biden said.
The White House said that in the Boston terror attack there was no indication of terrorist activity. They didn’t know about the Russians’ warnings to us about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The White House didn’t know about the thousands of illegals who were released from prison earlier this year by Janet Napolitano as part of the faux sequester cuts.
The White House didn’t know anything about the Petraeus scandal. They conveniently learned about it the Wednesday after the election. The DOJ was investigating the Director of the CIA and the White House didn’t know.
The White House didn’t know about the SEC/Goldman Sachs charges until after they were made public.

Schmo:

First, why not dump the lie that Republicans shut down the government. Democrats did that and you know it. Republicans had plans to fund everything but obamacare and the Dems said "stick it" like first graders that couldn't get their own way.

So any cost was on their heads and incidentally, they spent money needlessly putting up barriers, etc to parks/memorials the Republicans offered to open.

Odd how that amount comes up over and over.

Do you have any thoughts on the ONE BILLION SPENT ON OBAMACARE THAT DOESN'T WORK? It's way more than the government shutdown cost and rising every day. Was supposed to be less than a tenth of that amount.

Even the new company Sebelius says will fix it is under investigation in England and elsewhere. Great choice. More money wasted.

Cruz is the rarity that promised to try to shut obamacare down to his constituents and did just that.

I paid for my own insurance my entire life PLUS most of the healthcare cost of 35 employees AND 401K's.

You can beat that, can you? Incidentally, my husband sold health insurance for 35 years, designed it to meet people's needs because he cared.
