Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong ~ a Review

by Clio

I am a great fan of dry wit, which author/cartoonist Jake Aurelian deftly wields while slicing and dicing media collusion, double standards and the collective political charade that is Obama & Company in his book, Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong.

Illustrated with Aurelian’s political satire cartoons, Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong readers are drawn to correct conclusions about Obama’s White House rule while enjoying a politically incorrect giggle. The author hits every salient point about this administration’s follies and deceits, while holding the media accountable for their drooling patronage of “the messiah.”

Cleverly written as a “Children’s Book for Adults,” Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong is an easy, compelling read and a great gift for those still waiting for Mr. Obama to part the seas and heal the earth. Conservatives will appreciate the humor, as well as the factual, ‘tell it like it is’ nature of the book (fairy dust and unicorns – not included).

A suggestion: don’t wait for Christmas to purchase Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong for your ‘hopey/changey’ friends. Make this a priority purchase before November 6th! (to purchase, click here a link to Amazon)

Kudos to the author: Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong really sent a tingle up our leg!

Back coverAbout Jake Aurelian: Obama-Wama-Ding-Dong is his third book. In 2009, Aurelian co-authored Too Politically Sensitive, a true crime/political book discussing the depths of corruption in Illinois which spawned from a double murder in a rural town; CBS’ 48 Hours aired three different episodes based on this case, and the investigation was the focus of an episode of On the Case with Paula Zahn (2010). His second book, Dead Wrestlers, Broken Necks & The Women Who Screwed Me Over: A Main Event of Photography and Fiction (2011) was recently the recipient of two literary awards: Finalist Award (short fiction) in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards (considered the “Sundance of book awards”) and Second Place/Runner Up (general fiction) at the 2012 Hollywood Book Festival.

The Poisonous Seeds Sown by Barack Obama

From the poisonous seeds of class warfare and race hustling, mighty dictatorships grow. These are the seeds Barack Obama sows in America’s garden. 

In any of his daily orations on class warfare, just substitute the word “Jew” for his favorite word “rich.” It’s eerily reminiscent of the wicked rhetoric from the National Socialist party that spewed their hatred around the world in the 1930s. There’s no difference in their class warfare message; rise up and “take the income and wealth from the greedy “haves” and give it to the rightful owners, “the government.” 

 Naturally, the promise of redistribution to the “have not’s” is paramount in all socialistic rhetoric. It is this pledge on which politicians depend to act as an accelerant to the parasites waiting to attach themselves to the back of a healthy society. 

This inglorious President dares not unleash the free-enterprise system, lest he loses Marxist control of industry and the American people. Therefore, this disastrous, Spartan economy is his life-long dream. It allows him to blame the “rich,” and all of his other strawmen. It also presents the opportunity to rule the country by dictating his will in the name of doing it for the greater good. 

Nearly every dictatorship begins with promises of equality and a classless society, and then ends in devastation. The People’s Republic of China and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics were both examples of wicked, humanitarian and economical calamities. They both began by sowing the seeds of class dissatisfaction and nurturing their growth with the vacant promise of making everyone equal. Surprisingly, even in this country, lowering everyone to the lowest common denominator strikes a pleasurable chord to a large segment of the population. 

A free-running economy is a catastrophe for every big-government advocate. Barack Obama is the most anti-business, anti-capitalist American President in history. He never gives a speech or issues a press release without stridently repeating every loser’s refrain. “It’s not my fault,” followed by the “rich” aren’t paying their fair share. It’s evident to even the most casual observer that Barack Obama abhors this country, its Constitution, and its free enterprise system. It’s painfully obvious every time he opens his mouth that he holds them in bitter contempt. 

Four years ago, the media fabricated a pristine aura around their all-time favorite progressive. That aura is gone and only the reek of ugly, corrupt, Chicago-style politics remain. Tabbed as the great uniter, he is the most divisive political figure – not to mention the most divisive President – in American narrative. 

Visionaries of the possible built our nation. The Founders believed in unleashing the free spirit, imaginative mind, and determination of the average American. Likewise, they knew that lashing the federal government securely to the confines of the Constitution would secure liberty and create the greatest nation in civilization. Entrepreneurs know that self-sacrifice, hard work, and determination in a free enterprise system will provide them the only chance at real success. 

This President is a left-wing ideologue and a fantasist who subscribes to the fool’s gold idea of success lying in government dependency and control, high taxes, and less personal freedom. He believes that restraining individual liberty allows the centralized government to operate in the best interest of the citizenry. He also preaches that success and fulfillment without the government’s patronage and guidance is impossible. 

Obama spent his entire presidential term dismantling everything that made this country the envy of the world. His outrageous diatribe against entrepreneurial businessmen that, “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Someone else made it happen,” is emblematic of his leftist, “collective” mindset. Only a true Karl Marx believer would utter such a contemptible remark. Knowing full well that this idea does not play in mainstream America, he spends his campaigning time culling special interest groups from the general electorate herd and making them outlandish, special promises of other peoples’ money. 

The media promised Obama would bring a new refinement to the presidency. Instead, he brought an indelible, crude coarseness seldom seen; even in the crass political arena. His highbrow friends from academia held his hand all the way into the White House in an all-out effort to give credibility and stature to his socialist ideology. They, in turn, brought an evil dogma of the most extraordinary kind. Their character and beliefs are, like Obama’s, devoid of any concept of freedom. 

The intellectual left considers being anti-American as the latest style in sophistication. This is the promised refinement and elegance Obama brought to the White House. Every member of this elitist administration exemplifies this hatred of everything constitutional, and everything traditionally American. 

During his term in office, Barack Obama soiled the economy, the presidency, the country, and indeed, himself. Now, he proclaims how badly everyone else smells. If elected for another term, the stench will permeate every corner of the government, segment of society, and institution in our Republic. 

Another four years of following Barack Obama down his liberal-progressive road and this country will pass through the gates of a collectivist hell. This presidency should go down in the history books as the “era of the great conversion”; the conversion of middleclass America into the great permanent welfare class. Excuses, blame, welfare, unemployment, food stamps, social justice, income redistribution, and race hustling are now part of the permanent vernacular of Barack Obama’s lexicon. 

This President and his Marxist comrades cannot abide any political system that allows freedom. Their power depends upon the peoples’ enslavement and they cater to the slugs and leeches in society because that’s where the votes are. 

Neither liberty nor a free enterprise system automatically lifts everyone. However, they enhance the opportunities for everyone to lift themselves. This is the concept for which so many great Americans fought and died; and the concept so despised by the political charlatan, Barack Obama.

The Bureaucratic War Against Americans

by Jim Mullen Jim Mullen

…a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.

~ Ronald Reagan

Our federal government came into existence with a unique, unfamiliar model in which its powers were expressly limited by the Constitution and reserved for the people. 

Since Americans’ freedom originates from the founding principles of limited federal government with absolute power left in the hands of the people and the states, it’s a very simple concept that less government means more personal liberty. It is also a simple notion for politicians to retain their power they must overpower the populace and extract their wealth. 

To accomplish these nefarious deeds in the war against the people and the states of the American Republic, politicians use an army of governmental, civilian soldiers commanded by an established tyrannical power. The United States government’s supremacy advances by using the most sophisticated, well-organized, and powerful force in the history of our country; the federal bureaucracy. Bureaucracies have long been politicians’ favorite weapons against American freedom. They’re created for the distinct purpose of controlling and regulating the masses – and for the extraction and spending of taxpayers’ money. 

Bureaucrats are the civilian soldiers in the federal government’s all-out war against the people and the states. Historically, Congress and the President demonstrated dismissive disregard for the constitutional limits to federal power. Over the years, they deliberately instilled a sense of paralyzing fear into the American Citizenry. Fear of their own government by Americans was the worst case scenario envisioned by the Founders. They warned in dramatic fashion of the disaster to befall the people if they allowed the governmental reins to slacken and release the wild, natural spirit of politicians and public administrators. They understood the instinctive course would trample the Constitution and run roughshod over this great nation established with such enormous pride and extraordinary vision. 

Using their army of bureaucrats, typically equipped with Legislative or Executive-powered edicts and Judicial writs, they wield dictatorial power over every man, woman, and child in our nation. Their ever-growing legions dwarf the uniformed forces of our nation’s Military serving to protect and preserve our freedom from foreign powers. While our Military fights America’s enemies abroad, the home front politicians and their soldiers, the bureaucrats, usurp the constitutional power of the people and enslave the nation. 

Congress uses so many lawyers and disjointed lobbyists to write legislation it results in cryptic legalese so obscure and incomprehensible that no one reads or understands a bill before enacted into law. Likewise, they incorporate into nearly every law sweeping, all-encompassing provisions for creating panels, commissions, bureaus, agencies, boards, or entire departments. Enforcement of their unconstitutional mandates depends on these evil strokes of the political pen, and provides the means by which tyranny overwhelms liberty. 

Likewise, it’s from here, behind their self-made bureaucracies where politicians take up their defensive positions. When citizens become enraged at the loss of their liberty and fortunes as pen pushing officials unleash the latest congressional monster upon America, the elected cowards hunker down and point accusatory fingers of blame at the Frankenstein they created. Meanwhile, Americans surrender their liberty and have their fortunes confiscated.

The federal government is the nation’s largest employer; therefore, American lives and fortunes unquestionably serve the demands and dictates of the bureaucrats. There is always an army of government officials at the ready to apply their unlimited power to oppress the people by stripping them of their dignity, their constitutional rights, and their legally accumulated wealth. 

Once born, bureaucracies live forever and they forever erode the constitutional principles of freedom. They take on lives of their own, and politicians cry that they are unable to control or eliminate the very beasts they created. 

The spirit of American exceptionalism lies shattered and our once proud people reduced to waiting in governments’ bureaucratic inferno for the next magnanimous program that promises nirvana and delivers despair. 

Ronald Reagan had it right. Today, decades later, the weight of liberal-progressive government continues unabated to crush liberty.

Another Four Years of Obama: Will We Be Better Off?

by ClioGov. Mitt and Ann Romney

“Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?” Ronald Reagan asked this question in his final statement during the 1980 debate with incumbent President Jimmy Carter.

Governor Mitt Romney recently asked a similar question regarding incumbent, Barack Obama. It is the most critical and fundamental issue of the 2012 campaign.

In his “A Better America Begins Tonight” in Manchester, New Hampshire last April, presumptive Republican nominee Gov. Romney discussed the state of affairs under the Obama administration and referenced Pres. Reagan’s 1980 remarks in his victory speech:

“Four years ago, Obama “dazzled us” with sweeping promises of “hope and change,” Romney said. “ But after we came down to earth, after all the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?

“Is it easier to make ends meet?” he said, in a riff on presidential candidate Ronald Reagan’s famous query in 1980, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?”

We’ve had three and a half years of an Obama presidency on which to base, not only opinions, but to take the next logical step and ask “is there any foreseeable relief on the horizon? Can we expect anything different in the next four years than we did during the first term?”

This president’s first term in office belongs to him – and only him. Mr. Obama can try to blame another, consecutive dismal jobs report on former President George W. Bush, the ‘Arab Spring,’ Japan’s earthquake, ATM machines and our own ‘laziness’ to explain a stubborn 8.2% unemployment rate (which does not include the chronically-unemployed. That figure would increase, or almost double, the true unemployment numbers, by some experts’ opinions), the largest deficit in U.S. history, policy failures, administrative scandals, loss of our AAA credit rating and so much more.

Consider, carefully, this quote by Spanish philosopher, George Santayana:

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Can we risk a repetition of the past three and a half years? Can we speculate what a president, with no fear of an upcoming re-election campaign, might do with his legislative freedom in those four years? Unless Republicans win majorities in the House and the Senate, Barack Obama will be the proverbial ‘kid in a candy store,’ free to indulge his ideologies, as well as his golf addiction and love of vacation travel.

The excuses and the shifting blame-games aside, we must soberly ask ourselves this question, as Ronald Reagan asked us in 1980: are we better off than we were (almost) four years ago? If not, is there anything that we’ve seen from this president and administration that gives us hope? Hope for economic and domestic security? Hope for jobs and affordable food and gas? Hope for the restoration of our good credit and reputation in the world?

Pres. Bush isn’t to blame for all or even most of our economic troubles. Majority Leader Harry Reid and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi took over the Senate and the House, respectively, in 2007 and proceeded to pass bill after bill, often bypassing the Oval Office. They continued their ‘open wallet’ approach to politics until the American people went to their voting precincts in November 2010 and gave Mr. Obama, Sen. Reid and (now former) Speaker Pelosi a “shellacking,” as Mr. Obama famously termed the walloping rejection of his policies at the polls. Across America, Democrats found themselves ‘pink-slipped’ by We the People, in all levels of national and state government.

Let’s pause a moment and reflect on the past four years. What has Barack Obama done for America?

Mr. Obama has driven us into a debt so deep that this generation will not live to see the resolution (if there is one) of its consequences.

Mr. Obama forced Obamacare on an unappreciative nation. One wonders what kind of strategic thinking went into ‘create a new (unwanted by a majority of Americans) bureaucracy, apply pressure on the Democrat majorities to pass the law – even if no one has a chance to read it. Next, put the IRS in charge of managing it.’

Conservatively, experts predicted that Obamacare would consume one-sixth of the gross national product. New data puts that figure much higher. Oh, yes – do all of this during a deep recession while borrowing money from the Chinese to stay afloat. Personally, I fail to see the brilliance in this plan.

Bottom line: the forecast for another four years – not good. Is there anyone (besides Obama sycophants) who sincerely believes that Mr. Obama will do anything different or has a dramatic, innovative plan to change our bleak – and even desperate – situation?

Republicans are answering America’s ‘SOS’ – Governor Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney is a successful businessman, former governor of Massachusetts and president/ CEO, Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games of 2002. (He accepted no salary as governor or as president of the Salt Lake Olympic Games committee.)

What does Mitt Romney want to do for America? The following is from his website (where you will also find information about his positions on numerous issues), www.MittRomney.com:

“Mitt Romney will rebuild the foundations of the American economy on the principles of free enterprise, hard work, and innovation. His plan seeks to reduce taxes, spending, regulation, and government programs. It seeks to increase trade, energy production, human capital, and labor flexibility. It relinquishes power to the states instead of claiming to have the solution to every problem.”

In Mitt Romney, we have a man of good character, as well as a skilled, talented businessman who rescued failing businesses (among them, Staples, Dominos, and Sports Authority, as well as the SLC Winter Olympics) and put them on the path to prosperity. Even former President Bill Clinton lauds Gov. Romney’s “sterling business career.”

Despite the Obama campaign’s latest attempts to sour Americans on the GOP nominee by “lemon-picking” Gov. Romney’s experience at Bain Capital and making other spurious accusations, Gov. Romney stands by his record of honest labor, charitable efforts and unassailable leadership, in public and private life.

Compare Gov. Romney’s careers and accomplishment with Mr. Obama’s and you’ll find striking contrasts.

While enumerating and describing all the failures, missteps, scandals and lawsuits of Obama administration may fill books, let’s focus on the most important question Americans may ever be asked to answer on November 6th:

Do you believe America will be better off during another four-year term with Mr. Obama?

On November 6, 2012, America, vote with your conscience…

Governor Ronald Reagan, 1980:

“Next Tuesday all of you will go to the polls, will stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago?”

SCOTUS Ruling: Another Day Which Will Rule in Infamy

With the passage of Obamacare, we witnessed the raping of America and the burning of our Constitution. When the majority of Americans screamed no, no, no, to government-run healthcare, Congress ignored the protestations. Obama and the Democrats forced the nation to submit to an all-powerful government hell-bent on having its way with the American people because it could. Obama and the Democrats tried everything to silence the cries: demonization, intimidation, scorn, and finally, dismissal by cooing, “Just relax and try it… you’ll love it.” Ultimately, they did the only thing at which the federal government is proficient— exercising dominance over the citizens of our Republic.

On another day which will live in infamy, there rained down upon a staggering nation, a devastating decree from the United States Supreme Court. They gave their official sanction for “the raping of America and the burning of our Constitution” by ruling this brutal act was, officially and legally; permitted and authorized.

Let the declaration go forth across this land that the idiocy of Nancy Pelosi, the malevolence of Harry Reid, and the pretentious arrogance of Barack Obama now hold sway over our constitutional Republic. From this day on, the federal government has complete and total control over every aspect of every American’ life. They decide what we eat, our every activity, the medicine we receive, pain we must endure, and every decision your doctor makes concerning our healthcare. In short, the Federal government now controls who lives and who dies. 

Politicians took from us a country with the best medical care in the world and gave us a system reduced to the lowest common denominator. A country with the highest cancer survival rates in the world is now a European or third-world system where people die for want of drugs, doctors, and state-of-the-art medical equipment and facilities.

Panels, commissions, and boards will form, convene and perform their voodoo-magic medicine. Bureaucrats will spring up from the fertile socialist soil and multiply like noxious weeds. Tens of thousands of new, specialized IRS agents will sharpen their intimidation skills and practice the EPA’s fine art of crucifixion. Attitudes of the bureaucrats will need readjusted; therefore, classes in “Obama Arrogance” will necessarily be implemented.

Government bureaucracies have long been politicians’ favorite weapons against American freedom. They’re created for the distinct purpose of controlling and regulating the masses, and to spend taxpayers’ money. Americans never find themselves rejoicing over new-found personal freedom when politicians enact new legislation and create new bureaucrats to administer their unconstitutional boondoggles.

Barack Obama is a new-breed, big-government tyrant and proficient at harnessing the political winds to power his Socialist agenda. With his trusted left-wing faction of Congress, he refined the whole notion of using bureaucratic panels, commissions, and boards to repress constitutional rights and oppress Americans.

This is all-out war against the American people, so bribery, threats and lies are acceptable in the implementation of their goal; a complete Socialist State. Obama and the Progressive-Democrats lie with impunity, steal without remorse, cheat with abandonment, and shred the Constitution without shame. Using the healthcare model, they laid the foundation for a total federal government takeover of business, healthcare, education, banking, and commerce.

Regardless of the shape into which Obamacare morphs, it is another government program that will go broke, just as all federal programs eventually go broke. Obama declared early on that his real goal was a single-payer, totally government-run healthcare system; however, ‘it had to be done in steps.’ Obamacare is an uncontrollable monstrosity designed to fail and give cover for a complete government takeover by blaming insurance companies for the big cost and inefficiency.

Promises of keeping your own doctor and insurance plan, lower costs, higher efficiency, more coverage, and better medical care, were Obama’s cock-and-bull stories. His pompous drivel about excluding illegal aliens and abortions from the law, and the penalties for failure to purchase insurance coverage not being a tax, was, likewise, an incomprehensible, brazen lie.

The travesties of this “healthcare” bill are sinister and profound. It will result in shortages of doctors, hospitals, medical equipment and everything associated with healthcare. Job losses and massive tax increases – overt and covert – will result in higher prices for everything. We will endure long lines and waiting times to receive services, which will result in unnecessary suffering and death for hundreds of thousands of Americans.

The Obama-ites are singing their collectivist, celebratory song. If this legislation is left to run its course, their song will quickly become a dirge.
