Tuffy The Clown Redux? Nebraska Parade Float Featuring Obama Library Outhouse Deemed Racist

The Nebraska Democratic Party responded by describing the float as among the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.”
What makes the controversy even more ludicrous is that the creator of the float, a local farmer, said the zombie wasn’t even supposed to represent Obama, but instead was a depiction of a victim of the recent VA health care scandal.

Frank Marshall Davis Photos: Obama's REAL Father?

Hey! He really was born in Hawaii!

Where Are They Now? Tuffy The Rodeo Clown

Tuffy said he was excited to be a part of the Sutherland rodeo. He’s had a slim year for bookings since getting banned from the Professional Rodeo Clown Association in August 2013 for a performance at the Missouri State Fair.
One of his skits involves a “live puppet” wearing a mask of the United States president — he learned it from his mentor — but using a mask of Barack Obama didn’t sit well with the public and officials.

Police chief orders beat down of Georgia man

The police chief and one officer are gone after someone leaked text messages to the local media in which the chief promised a steak dinner to first officer to beat up a resident. After the assault the victim filed a complaint with the police department but surprise! their investigation found the officer acted appropriately.

Cheer up! You are 29 times more likely to be killed by a cop than a foreign terrorist.

If you worry a lot about foreign terrorists and the threat they pose to your personal safety you can breath easy. You are 29 times more likely to be killed by a uniformed police officer than a foreign terrorist. It is a sad fact that the most lawless segment of society is the very segment hired to protect society. In 1994 the US Government passed a law authorizing the Pentagon to donate surplus Cold War era military equipment to local police departments.In the 20 years since, weaponry designed for use on a foreign battlefield, has been handed over for use on American street against American citizens.

The most galling aspect of this disgrace is there is seldom any accountability. Even the FBI kills people without ever having to justify its actions. In the case of Ibragim Todashev he was shot 7 times. Months after the FBI issued several conflicting accounts of the shooting it was ruled as appropriate use of force. The NYT reports that since 1993 the FBI has shot 150 people with about 70 of them fatal and never has the agency admitted any culpability.
The violence done to frequently innocent people in SWAT raids is often hidden from public view but street cops seem almost driven to violate more or less innocent people a broad daylight. In the video below the California state trooper delivers 11 blows to the head of a 51 year old grandmother who was guilty of felony jaywalking.. Of course the department promises a full investigation but cannot comment on the officer because of the ongoing investigation.

This video went international when it was picked up by the UK Daily Mail. It's another felony jaywalking and in this case failure to show an ID. Never mind the woman is a faculty member of Arizona State University and the cop is a campus cop.

Naturally the authorities found there was no wrong doing.

Undercover cops used to boost town's revenue

To protect and defend? It's more like entrap and extort. In Somerville, Mass an undercover cop waits until traffic is extremely heavy before walking across a pedestrian crossing. Motorists are supposed to yield to pedestrians and the fine is $200 for failure to comply.

Review: "The Amateur" by Edward Klein

Like Dinesh D'Souza's "2016" and probably like a lot of books I have not yet read, "The Amateur" is a warning cry against the reelection of Barack Obama in 2012. We all know how persuasive those things were. In 2012 we witnessed tens of millions of Americans vote against their self-interest to promote the welfare of their beloved cult leader.

So yes, there is a pervasive "what's the point?" cloud hanging over the narrative. I wanted to read the book anyway prior to taking on "Blood Feud..." Klein's follow-up that deals primarily with the Clinton--Obama feud. "The Amateur" also deals with that lingering feud. In fact, the book's title is derived from Bill Clinton's description of our 44th president.

One of the most enduring debates of our era goes something like this: Is Obama deliberately destructive or grossly incompetent or both? I say both. Yes, he hates all things American but even when he wants something real bad, he still has trouble placing one foot in front of the other. Witness his efforts to bring the Olympics to Chicago or his attempt to get Israel to go retro on their borders. 'Amateur' was the only apt term at times like these.

Klein might the be dean of the ineptitude school. He does not theorize much about hidden agenda, red diaper babies, closet jihadists or bitter anti-imperialistic sympathies. In that respect, he gives "The One" a lot of leeway. He makes his futile case against the Obama Presidency based on the president's temperament, his lack of leadership experience, his frighteningly poor interpersonal skills and a sheltered life that freed him from the burden of decision-making.

Klein recounts a loud argument between Bill and Hillary. Bill wanted his wife to primary Obama in 2012. Chelsea walks in and sides with Bill. Chelsea despises Obama more than Michael Savage ever will. She has not gotten over the way the Chicago thugs treated her mother in 2008.

This book has plenty of gossip. Oprah. Michelle. Valerie. Klein is not catty (well he did repeat someone's description of Michelle as 'Barack's bitter half') but his subjects sure are. The portrait of the president is one we have gotten to know. He is a vain, petulant man who takes even the smallest disagreement personally. He will retire in luxury and that is a good thing because I don't think anyone would ever hire him for a job "with actual responsibilities."

Is "The Amateur" too dated? No. It sets the stage for "Blood Feud..." and the unfolding real life conflict within the Democratic Party. I recommend this book.

China's Ghost Cities: The Wonders of Central Planning

This is from 2011. My understanding is that most of these places are still ghost cities.



Review: "Dreams From My Real Father"

I ordered a used copy of Joel Gilbert's "Dreams From My Real Father" off of Ebay for $8, including shipping. and Amazon had roughly the same deal but I ended up going with some Ebayer in Michigan.

In the past I have compared the mysterious life of the Barack Obama to the JFK assassination. The parallels are legion. In each situation most people accept a suspicious story because they cannot deal with the cognitive dissonance they might stir up with inquiry. Curiosity killed the cat, after all. Eyes forward.

Joel Gilbert is to the Mysterious Barack Obama what Oliver Stone is to the JFK assassination. I know nothing about Gilbert but I can tell you all you need to know about Oliver Stone. Oliver Stone is the worst filmmaker in history. Further, I disagree with Stone's premise that John Kennedy was killed by Clay Shaw's crew. I also reject the notion that Jim Garrison was a white knight and I reject the idea that Kennedy was a peacenik. And yet, I liked Stone's "JFK."

"JFK" was refreshing because it was more credible than the Warren Report's Lone Nut Who Spoke Russian So Fluently That His Future Wife Thought He Was A Russian Citizen But Who Was Unfortunately Murdered By A Second Lone Nut Who Just Happened To Have Long-Standing Ties To Organized Crime And Who Liked To Bring His Gun Into The Bowels Of The Dallas Police Department When He Was Not Assisting A Stammering Prosecutor In His Pained Efforts To Answer Simple Questions...Besides, the movie antagonized the news media. By that standard alone, it is a masterpiece.

"DFMRF" has antagonized the news media but on a much smaller scale. It is not a Hollywood movie so it is much easier for the press to ignore. What I like best about the digifilm is the exploration of Barack Obama's family. I have seen Gilbert explain Obama's maternal grandfather in TV interviews where he elaborated more than he did in the movie. I wish he would have explained him further.

Gilbert outs Stanley Armour Dunham as a CIA agent. During the Cold War CIA agents often posed as furniture salesmen (these days they are consultants.) Dunham moved his family around a lot but he always sold furniture close to Air Force bases. He might have been trying to monitor or infiltrate Communists near Honolulu and in the course of such activity, he might have invited Frank Marshall Davis to his home.

Dunham's rebellious daughter (a woman who would ultimately prove to be as mysterious as her espionagey father or her shadowy son) took a liking to the ever-cool Davis. Their consorting would produce a future president. This presented a dicey problem for the elder Dunham. His daughter was knocked up by a card-carrying Communist. If the Company learned of this development, he would lose his security clearance and he might be stuck selling furniture for real.

Problem solved by Barack Obama Senior. He married the pregnant woman and things seemed to improve for all concerned. Throughout the film, Gilbert shows pictures of Barack Obama II side by side with Davis. Barry Soetoro certainly resembles Davis more than he resembles Barack Obama Sr.

Barry Soetoro (I am using this aka at this time to avoid confusion with BHO Sr.) spoke at length about the influence of a mysterious "Frank" in his autobiography. The media does not want to examine Frank too closely. Gilbert does so. Barry Soetoro's verbiage often resembles Davis's verbiage as much as Soetoro resembles Davis facially.

If Davis is the real father, it explains why the Dunhams would allow their grandson to have contact with this reprobate. In retrospect, that probably wasn't a good decision. Davis is probably the most influential figure in Barry Soetoro's life.

Gilbert's case is not airtight. But as with "JFK" I give him credit for trying to expose the truth. And like "JFK,"  "Dreams From My Real Father" is more plausible than the official story. If you have any curiosity at all about Barack Obama/Barry Soetoro then by all means carve out 97 minutes and watch this movie. It is worth your time.
