Matt Patterson’s Remarkable Portrait Painting of Barack Hussein Obama

Barack Hussein Obama appears to be an exceedingly skilled con-artist, for he clearly speaks and performs  like a star  winning  with charm, tens of millions of  American , mostly the usual lefties,   single and divorced women,  Jews, Gays and Lesbians, Latinos, Marxists, particularly the Bill Ayers crowd and rasistly 95 % of the  ‘colored’ American vote:  a disingenuous, deceitful,  duplicitous,  devious, dishonest person in speech and message.

Dennis Prager limits a liar to be a person who knows what he conveys is, indeed, a lie.    There may be some courtesy conveyed in this Prager definition.   But, when a person is so consistently dishonest in whatever  he or she conveys, and has no clean character whatsoever, even when caught in the lies,  knowingly or not, is still a LIAR by habit, if not by intention.

But, don’t  anyone believe this Barack Hussein Obama isn’t aware of the chaos he is causing.    Beyond his script the American citizenry has to put up with every time Obama  puts his ego and its mouth into the spotlight he is not a comfortable clever actor.     He pretends he is Christian, but there is absolutely, absolutely no evidence of it in his verbs, habits, and the man has no sincerity core from which he can pull a plum when needed.

There are some folks who believe Obama is God-sent to awaken Americans to the foul  the Left has cooked up for a culture which has lost its way in the battle of  seeking  Truth  over Evil since the sex and drug revolt of the 1960s and 1970s and the universities it has morphed since.   It has become feminized, hysterical, sensitive, authoritarian,  low on morality, but  high on feelings and lost of mind and purpose.

Friend, neighbor, and fellow conservative, Arlene Taber sent the following resume of the real (of course, my view of the evidence displayed by this 44th American president) Barack HusseinObama an the consequences of his occupying that important  seat in the White House, written by Matt Patterson, a political writer at the disappearing Newsweek magazine:


> Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and
tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely
liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article
about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly
amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our
President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the protective wall
built around him by the liberal media….
> By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)
> Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an
inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass
hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will
wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into
thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most
powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?
> Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life:
> ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test
scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief
career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact
nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally
an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of
which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.
> He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a
legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling
> associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades
served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served
as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future
historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected
president? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any
university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation
for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.
> Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz
> addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no
white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America
like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have
lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in
the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various
American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass.
Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of
the color of his skin.
> Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter
when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said)
“non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first
black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?
> Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama
> phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But
> certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and
regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially
white liberals, feel good about themselves.
> Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves
> on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are
not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor
> performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these
minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional
devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is
affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely
because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and
if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.
> And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled
by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was
told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at
Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre
record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no
record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was
told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the
> What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every
time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive
qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and
cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply
> The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of cliches, and that’s when he has
his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely
think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth -
it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again
for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word
for word his 2008 speeches)
> And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and
everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited
this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is
embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness,
so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out
and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on
track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible
for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?In short: our
president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect
to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that,
will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not
have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

Comment:   Thank you great and courageous American, Matt Patterson, writer at the late, former Lefty American news magazaine, Newsweek.

Unfortunately for all Americans, your review is all too true.

ObamaCare Damaged by Court Decision

The following is a note from Twila Brase, president of CCHF  regarding the two court  decisions earlier this week placing dysfunctional  ObamaCare into further legal confusion  :

CCHF News Alert!

D.C. Court Blows Hole in Obamacare, but…
July 22, 2014
By Twila Brase, President, CCHF

Earlier this morning, in a 2-1 ruling, the DC Court of Appeals ruled against the Obama administration in Halbig vs. Burwell. The court ruled that a plain reading of the text of the law means the federal exchange (Healthcare.gov) cannot issue federal premium subsidies. However, the DC court did not order the subsidies to end, presumably because they knew their ruling would be appealed. Using very strong language, the D.C. ruling states:

“Within constitutional limits, Congress is supreme in matters of policy, and the consequence of that supremacy is that our duty when interpreting a statute is to ascertain the meaning of the words of the statute duly enacted through the formal legislative process. This limited role serves democratic interests by ensuring that policy is made by elected, politically accountable representatives, not by appointed, life-tenured judges.”

This ruling means that people in 36 states without state exchanges will not have access to taxpayer-funded dollars for Obamacare-priced coverage — and that many people will refuse to pay the full cost, potentially derailing Healthcare.gov. It also means that the individual and employer mandates (and penalties), which hinge on there being subsidies available, cannot be applied in the 36 states without a state-based exchange.

Hours later, the Virginia Court of Appeals ruled unanimously exactly opposite on the same issue in King vs. Burwell, saying the subsidy language is “ambiguous and subject to multiple interpretations.” But Judge Andre Davis, who seems to have no trouble disregarding Congressional supremacy, wrote that even if the language were not ambiguous, he would hold that Congress mandated subsidies through either exchange.

Expect Supreme Court action. Although the Obama administration plans to appeal Halbig vs Burwell to the entire 9-member DC Court of Appeals (hoping for a win in a court packed with Obama appointees), the unsuccessful plaintiffs in King vs. Burwell are likely to appeal it to the U.S. Supreme Court, meaning the final decision could come sooner rather than later. Stay tuned!

Mark Your Calendar! Don’t forget to put our September 11 fundraising dinner on your calendar!  Stephen Hayes, part of the Fox News’ All-Star Panel, will be the keynote for this special event to raise funds for CCHF and celebrate our 20th anniversary! More details and registration coming soon!

Will Dems Run Another Cheat to Ruin America further in 2016

High cheek bone, Elizabeth Warren is making noise about politics recently.   She sings the Marxist songs in tune and has practiced them to prove her commitment to change America.   Ms. Warren, freshman Senator from Massachusetts, has high cheek bones.     Her mother noticed the feature, it seems.   And so Warren announced she was American Indian by birth.    She could qualify as a minority to enjoy the benefits both financial and political for any  advancement into college and  the White house.    As president,  high cheek bone Elizabeth would disband the Washington Redskins by fiat to prove her loyalty to  high cheek bones.

She would be following ‘black” president, Barack Hussein Obama, who is as white is he is black.   But, living in Chicago he saw no future in politics to run as an American or as a white.   It has been revealed  he is not fond of America and just before he entered the Oval Office, he  pledged,  “We are 5 days away from transforming America!!”  Black racism is more exciting, successful,  and profitable than anything white can offer.    Of all the minorities the American press protects and/or glorifies,    none is more pure and  innocent than the nation’s black brothers and sisters.

Byron York at the Washington Examiner wrote the following regarding Squaw Warren as a replacement for old, tired and well used with no achievements on positive note,  Hillary Clinton, for president in 2016.    Modern Democrats are enamored by the deviant in Washington.

While Hillary Clinton offers a resume, Elizabeth Warren offers a plan


What do you remember from your 9th Grade English Class?

I remember a shriveled up, sixty eight year old, red-wigged old maid in her last year of teaching who taught Shakespeare to a class of 36 14 year olds, mostly boys who had been routy and/or poorly managed in 7th and 8th grades in elementary school.   I had no clue of the character of this class either of its offerings or how one earned his role as a member student.

It was a simple class.   She lectured, read the texts aloud,  and gave assignments.  We listened both by training and by interest, for we were to  ‘learn’  Shakespeare, a requirement……The Merchant of Venice, Macbeth, and Julius Caesar were the texts…..and this shadow of a living being  its priestess.    I learned and have not forgotten:

“The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven,
Upon the place beneath.
It is twice blessed.
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
It is mightiest in the mightiest,
It becomes the throned monarch better than his crown.
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
An attribute to awe and majesty.
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings.
But mercy is above this sceptred sway,
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself.
And earthly power doth  then show  likest God’s,
Where mercy seasons justice.
Therefore Jew,
Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That in the course of justice none of us should  see salvation,
We all do pray for mercy
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render the deeds of mercy.
I have spoke thus much to mittgate the justice of thy plea,
Which if thou dost follow,
This strict court of Venice
Must needs give sentance gainst the merchant there.”


I also learned from the Bible, King James Version, the Shakespeare of  religious texts:

As for man, his days are as grass.

As the flower of  the field so he flourisheth.  For the wind passeth over it and it is gone;

And the place thereof shall know it no more.

But the mercy of the Lord is everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him.

(I attended public high  school in St. Paul, Minnesota from September, 1948 – 1952.

I could continue with pages of other learnings from that particular English class.

P.S.   I was dyslexic.  Do you think for a moment I am not grateful to have been taught  to remember such learning?)

Friend, former teacher colleage who taught English in high school, Mark Waldeland sent the following regarding the state of Shakespeare in today’s ObamaWorld:



Testimony by a Tedd Petruna Regarding Islamist Behavior on a Flight

The following ‘testimony’ was sent to me by friend, neighbor, and fellow conservative, Arlene Taber.    I have a strong feeling that the incident, indeed, did occur:
Tedd Petruna  is a diver at the NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab)  facility at NASA  Houston .. Tedd happened to be on the AirTran Flight 297, from Atlanta  to Houston . Here’s his report :
“One  week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father.
On Tuesday,  the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have  seen a blurb about where an Air Tran flight was canceled from Atlanta to  Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell
phone before  take- off.. The story was only on Fox News. That was NOT
what really  happened.
I  was seated in 1st class coming home. Eleven Muslim men got on
the plane  in full Muslim attire. Two of them sat in 1st class and the
rest seated  themselves throughout the plane, in coach class, all the way to the  back. As the plane taxied out to the runway, the stewardesses
gave the  safety spiel that we are all so familiar with.
At  that time, one of the men in 1st class, got on his cell and called one  of his companions back in coach. He proceeded to talk on the
phone in  Arabic very loudly and very, very aggressively. This activity
took the 1st stewardess out of action for she repeatedly told the man
that cell  phones were not permitted at that time. He ignored her as if she were  not there. The man, who answered the phone back in the coach
section,  did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. Further back
in the  plane, at the same time, two younger Muslims, one in the back on
the  aisle, and one sitting in front of him by the window, began to
show  footage of a porno video they had taped the night before. They were very  loud about it.
The  3rd stewardess informed the two men that they were not to have any  electronic devices on at this time. One of the men said “shut up infidel  dog!”The  stewardess attempted to take the camcorder and the Muslim
began to  scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all eleven
of the  men got up and started to walk throughout the cabin. I guess that because of the noise, the flight crew must have decided that there was
something amiss and changed the plane’s directions to head back to the terminal.

The  commotion and noise was reaching a feverish pitch, and at
this point I  had had enough! I got up and started towards the back of 1st
class when  I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size,
say, “I got  your back.” Then I grabbed the man, who had been on the cell phone, by  the arm and said, “You WILL sit down in your seat or you WILL be thrown  from this plane!” As I “led” him around me to take his seat, the fellow  Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed him  back to his seat. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, “You WILL do the  same!”

He  protested loudly, but my adrenaline was flowing now and he
was going to  go also. Just as I escorted him forward, the plane stopped,
the doors  opened and three TSA agents and four police officers entered
the cabin.  Myself and my new Texas friend were told to cease and desist for they  had the situation under control.

I  was quite happy to oblige, actually. There was still some sort of  commotion in the back, but within moments, all eleven Muslim men were  escorted off the plane. The TSA agents then had their luggage
unloaded.  We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happened.

Then  suddenly, the door opened again and in walked all eleven Muslim men!  Stone faced, eyes front and robotic, (the only way I can
describe it)  and they were reseated. The stewardess from the back had been
in tears  and when she saw the men, she was having NONE of it! Since I
was up  front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agents that  there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with the Muslim men.
The  agent told her that they had searched the men and were going
through their luggage with a fine tooth comb. However, nothing had been found  and that the men were allowed to proceed on to Houston.

The  captain and co-captain came out of the cockpit and told the
agent, “We  and our crew will not fly this plane!” After a word or two,
the entire  crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. Five minutes later,
the cabin door  opened again and a whole new crew walked on. Again, this
was where I had  had enough! I got up and asked the TSA agent,” What the hell is going  on?

I  was told to take my seat. The airlines and TSA were sorry for
the delay  and we would be home shortly. I said, “I’m getting off this
plane”. The  stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. Now  I’m really mad! I said, “I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose  time is mine, with a family at home, and I am going through that door,  or I’m going through that door with you under my arm, but I AM going  through that door!”

And  then I heard a voice behind me say, “So am I!” Then everyone
behind us  started to get up and say the same thing. Within two
minutes, I was  walking off that plane where I was met by more TSA agents, who asked me  to write a statement about the incident. I had five hours to
kill at  this point waiting for the next flight to Houston , so why the
hell not  give them my statement. Due to the amount of people who got off
that flight, it was canceled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6 PM,
but I  finally got there at 12:30 AM. If you don’t believe this, look up the  date and then Flight 297 from Atlanta to Houston.

If this wasn’t a terrorism dry run, I don’t know what is. The terrorists  wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would
handle it, and  how the passengers would handle it. I’m telling this to you
because I  want you to know. The threat IS real. I saw it with my own  eyes.”

Obama Prefers Fundraising to Solving Problems

This Obama in the White House is not a guy’s guy.   Real guys are born with a drive to solve problems in life.   It decorates the soul of who they are as animals by Nature and Nature’s God.    It is MAN who has built the world as it is today with all of its trinketry and such, take it or leave it.    Lying  and other deceptions defeat problem solving.    In politics  Mr. Obama relies on deception as skillfully as many of the great evils in human history primarily to avoid solving problems and yet pretend to be strong,  forthright, and effective as fuhrer.      It is at university where he, no doubt, learned his  primary skills of deception.

Mr. Obama would never have been elected president without  a  grossly undereducated, unaware, narcissistic following, and the power of the  State, its teachers, and its reporters unable to know  what they do, his propagandists.   The mind has succumbed to feelings…….Feelings now  determine truth in ObamaWorld and its  university world which sculpted him, not the mind based on knowledge seeking Truth.     America has slipped into government by feminism with Obama  its savior and leader.

So this president continues to fundraise rather than comb his mind to become involved in solving the nation’s problems, both home and abroad.    Forrest Gump,  is in the Oval Office for the privileges it offers to dictate over the beings in his realm and needs money to do more damage following this November’s national elections.   Racism, Islamism, and Marxism  form his primary  fancies.

Please review the following realclearpolitics video:  OBAMA WILL CONTINUE TO DO FUNDRAISING AMID INTERNATIONAL CRISES.         Note:   Obama spokesman ‘Earnest’ is not in fact a robot, but a real Obamaling.



Prager University: The War on Work

No American institution  has more profoundly and deviously abandoned education based on teaching  Truth as Truth can be most honorably and accurately  discovered, than the nation’s social science universities with  its armies of  reporters from coast to coast.    The feminist age of feelings worship has arrived.

For only a few minutes of viewing,  reading and thinking at Prager University one can discover the classic America at its best.   Try the following lesson to increase your knowledge,  for it takes knowledge to recognize and conquer deception and untruth:



The U.S. government has spent trillions of dollars in recent decades attempting to combat poverty, yet the poverty rate has remained virtually unmoved. Why? As social economist Michael Tanner explains, the “War on Poverty” has both discouraged work and ensnared people in hardship. The “War on Poverty,” it turns out, is actually a “War on Work.” In five minutes, learn the truth about government’s counterproductive efforts to eliminate poverty.
