Making My Job Easy

America’s Choices

My work is easy when all I have to do is listen to readers and friends who send me stuff. This time, it is from a lady named Tamra. I don’t know her except she visits GrumpaJoesPlace . She sent me such a vivid description of  how she sees America heading that I just opened my sketch book and let my pencils fly.

The theme she describes is a favorite of mine and I have cartooned the idea a couple of times before. I dare not tire of the idea because it rings so true about the direction America is hoping, and changing, and transforming into.

Here are Tamra’s words describing her idea.

“I just watched an obnoxious Obama ad that got me thinking about a great idea for a political cartoon if you’re interested.

 It would be of Obama driving a car labeled USA with Biden in the passenger seat grinning from ear to ear.  The road is going DOWN a mountainous ravine.  In the distance is a great city of strong America (or something else).  The car is passing an exit labeled “Romney Ryan” that clearly leads to the city.  Ahead on the road Obama is steering on is a bridge that is out.  You may put warning signs on it.  At the bottom of the ravine are two cars crashed labeled FRANCE and GREECE.  Obama is not looking ahead.  He is either looking at the reader or maybe a celebrity.  He is saying, “It is very important that we continue moving forward.  We should never go backwards.”  (Or something to this effect.)”

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to draft this cartoon.

King-0’s Imperial Presidency

I drafted this cartoon in 2009 shortly after the election. At the time, I felt the country would see it as racist and they would not believe that an Imperial Presidency could take place. After all, we have a Constitution that defines the rules for electing our leaders. My son sent me the essay shown below. This piece is by Steve McCann. His bio on American Spectator defines him this way:

“Steve McCann is president of a company headquartered in London and the United States specializing in the financing of capital equipment and projects in Third World countries.”

King-0 Rules Over His Dominion

When I finished reading McCann’s essay I decided to release this cartoon. My picture totally defines the state of the country by 2016 if we allow Obama to steal a second term.

His article titled

“Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans” first appeared in American Thinker on May 8, 2012, and many bloggers have re-posted it many times. I am offering McCann’s essay here because this message must get to as many people as possible between now and the election.

Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans

The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860.This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America ” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.

The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal

During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.

For example, in the 2,700 pages of  Obama Care there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once Obama Care is fully operational in 2014.

The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack Obama and his radical associates.

Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.

None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.

It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.

Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.

The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists.

The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.

Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.

Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.

Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.

The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.

What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them

Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.

Why Do You Like Obama So Much?

I can’t express this theme often enough or hard enough, but taxes are evil in the disguise of moral platitude. I began this new president’s term by giving him the benefit of the doubt. I told myself, that as a Christian, I must love my fellow-man.  As Obama began to expose himself, I saw the evil in his soul. My early posts as a blogger warned about how I saw him as a socialist, and worse yet, a communist. His slick rhetoric hypnotises the masses with words that roll off his tongue in lyrical melody. The rythmic motion of his head from side to side lulls one into deeper mesmirism.  Several times, during his speech at the Nobel Ceremony, I wanted to jump up and shout, “AMEN.”

You bought it, and elected him president. Now, we are all faced with the prospect of re-building America back into a great nation. He has, in twelve very short months, undermined the Constitution  upon which the USA achieved greatness.  The bottom line is that in twelve months I have grown to despise the man.

 I know you all love him, but I don’t understand why. Is it  because he is so clean as a family man? So was Tiger Woods.  Or is it because he loves his daughters, and his wife?  He appears to  be a good father too. Well, so am I, and so is nearly every dad I have known in my life.  Being a good father should be the norm, not the reason for adulation. The only difference is that this guy is black, and I don’t see too many good black fathers in the news to teach us their values. I know they exist, but what I see most  are welfare kids who don’t know who their fathers are.  Call me a racist, but that perception is what most Americans have about blacks, and that is why they like Obama so much.  

Obama’s drive to redistribute our wealth  is placing taxes on everything. He is controlling wages, he wants to control the air you breath, the kind of car you drive, and the  doctor who takes care of you.  He is giving the infamous ACORN  responsibility for over-seeing  banks. What?  Where did that come from? Barney Frank snuck that little nugget  in under the radar of  health-care reform, and cap and trade. So all of you kids going for degrees in Finance can kiss your dreams of becoming an overpaid banker goodbye. How about the “Boob-Tax” for all the girls out there who want breast enhancements? What he left out is a “Booby-Tax” for all the people who voted for him. He missed his opportunity on that one. He should have done it while the “hopium” hypnosis was still in effect.

The U.S.A., land of opportunity for the people of the world, is seen by Obama as a colony of ants working their asses off to please the whims of the queen.  He is dividing us into two societies: welfare, and tax-enslaved. It is his way of repaying the black half of his race for slavery, and the white half  for enslaving his black half.

This president’s hatred for white people is so vitriolic that he will not stop until the “chains we can believe in,” are manacled around our necks.

As a Christian man, I can not stand by and allow that stupidity to further itself, nor should you.

Decisions, Decisions, Oh Dear What Am I to Do?

     I’m glad the rules of football require time limits on making decisions.  Can you imagine any football game if  it took the coaches hours to make a decision about the next play while the players stood on the sideline freezing their butts off. If the Commander-in-Chief (CIC) continues to run the war as he has, Congress will have to begin passing laws limiting the amount of time the Chief has to make a decision. Of course, with the ass kissing Democratic Congress we have now, it is highly probable that Congress would write the law requiring twelve months to make any decision that was not on the Liberal Left agenda. If POTUS were the coach of an NFL team he’d have more pressure on him then he does as Commander-in-Chief. 

    Being that POTUS is a basketball player, I have to believe he understands the concept of winning. He leaves me wondering if he has the same philosophy when it comes to beating hostile tribes who are hell-bent on destroying the United States. Then again, he is doing a pretty good job of that himself. Could it be that he is one of them?

    POTUS gave an un-inspiring speech at West Point the other night. In it, he openly announced his game plan for the war. I’m sure the Taliban has already begun an exodus from Afghanistan to begin a holiday that will last until September 2011.  After our troops begin to pull out, the Taliban and Al Qaeda will begin their hostility anew.  In the meantime we will have spent another sixty billion dollars plus for nothing.  POTUS confirms Sadam Hussein’s prediction that the US has no stomach for war and that we would leave the mid-east after a very short time.

CIC will attempt to pull Euorpean countries into the fray to assist him in his mission. As usual, they will all have more important things on their plates. POTUS will be forced to take it on all by himself. We all know he won’t do that. He’ll leave and quit even though he has openly declared, in the war against the people of the U.S on Health Care Reform, that he is not a quitter. 

POTUS needs to learn Ronald Reagan’s policy regarding war; “we win they lose.”

Terrorist Massacre

Call a spade a spade, and call a Muslim a Muslim. I am amazed at how afraid our government is about offending the Islamic religious belief. Maybe it is because our leaders know that by offending this particular sect, Muslims can bring serious harm to the country.

Why is this religion so intent on converting us to their way of thinking? Are we still suffering a backlash from Christian Crusades to the Mid-East in the early centuries of Christianity? I believe the Christians have strengthened and grown their beliefs to move away from the violent conversion of humanity toward Christ. Christ would never have condoned the Crusades. Yet, we see the scripture of the Koran loaded with teachings to convert everyone to Islam. Condoned within the Koran are methods for conversion that are barbaric and ruthless. How can an all-knowing and loving God condone such behaviour. An infinite, loving caring God cannot, therefore the religion of Islam is nothing but a hoax being sold as a form of religion.

When will the people of America wake up to the fact that Islam promotes terrorism, and all the  political correctness in the world will not make that go away. Better yet, when will the Muslims awaken to the fact that killing in the name of God is wrong.

“Shining City Upon the Hill”

Ronald Reagan inspired me with his speeches. None excited me more than the image he painted of the “Shining City Upon the Hill.” My heart swelled with pride as I envisioned our great country pictured as a beacon of hope and opportunity.

Barack Obama inspires me also; to move to Australia. He is chipping away at the concept of the shining city as rapidly as he can. He has employed several czars (32 to be accurate) to change policy in every conceptual institution that the shining city is built upon.

I sat in church this weekend and listened to a great priest who was “begging.”  His job was to travel from parish to parish around the country and tell the story of homeless babies in the Caribbean countries like Haiti, and in South America where a million children a year starve to death. The organization is called “Food For the Poor.” They are a volunteer organization. With their efficiencies in place, 96% of the money collected is converted to food and necessities. I thought to myself, what a great bunch of people to create and run such an effort. As I sat and thought about what they do, and what my pledge will be, I began to wonder what future the kids who are being saved from starvation will grow into.  Currently, I don’t see the government of  Haiti providing for their own. Yet, I bet the leaders of the country all live in some opulent housing and are not starving as their people are.  They do depend on “Food For The Poor” and similar organizations to do it for them. What is that government doing to create the “Shining City Upon the Hill,” for their children?

Here in America, I see the new government spewing rhetoric about the need to re-distribute the wealth. Who will they re-distribute it to? Like in Haiti, I see our own leaders living in opulent housing, being driven by chauffeurs in very nice bullet proof sedans,  to even more opulent dinners. While we the tax payers sit in squalor waiting to be thrown a bone. I see the leaders tearing down the fabric of the Shining City to make life for the masses so much harder. I see tax dollars going into government departments that do not have a ninety-six percent efficiency, but less than fifty percent efficiency. In the meantime the number of  fat-cat government positions  increase and they  become the recipients of the re-distribution. 

Come to think of it, I’ve never heard  Barack Obama’s vision for his country, have you?

I really feel sorry for the winners of the Nobel prizes. Many of the recipients have spent a lifetime seeking solutions. Yet, this year, because of the ridiculous way in which the Nobel committee awarded a totally unaccomplished individual the Nobel Prize for Peace, they have demeaned all Nobel award winners.  Let’s hurry and make our beloved USA more like Norway. It is the model for the rest of the world as the perfect place to live.

By the way, where is Norway?
