Obama Spends $25 Million to Prevent Illegal Immigrants’ Kids from Getting Fat

Ben Johnson,The White House Watch

Law-abiding politicians would deport illegal immigrants;the Obama
administration spends scarce tax dollars assuring their well-being. Judicial
Watch reports
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a ground-breaking new
program to stamp out childhood obesity —among the children of illegals.
(Apparently Americans aren’t the only ones who have “gotten
a little soft.”
) “Like all other child obesity war programs launched by the
Obama Administration this one will target poor ethnic minorities,”writes
Judicial Watch. But this program will serve “limited English”communities:

[T]he CDC will spend $25 million on “innovative approaches” to reach
low–income and minority families in a quest to wipe out childhood obesity.
This,in turn,will prevent the onset of many diseases associated with fat
kids,including type two diabetes,asthma,and heart disease.

The “innovative approaches” include combining changes in medical care with
“supportive changes” in schools,child care centers and community venues such as
retail food stores and parks,according to the CDC’s announcement.
Additionally,health workers will provide a bridge between families and community
resources to better inform and educate hard-to-reach,limited English proficiency
and minority communities about disease prevention,health insurance opportunities
and disease management.

The money will spent in three states:California,Texas,and Massachusetts,where
members
of Obama’s
own illegal alien family
live.

Michelle Obama,the president’s bitter
half
,has repeatedly blamed
white racism
for the pandemic of overfed minority children.

Obama’s U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has already spent $2
million installing cameras in Texas school lunch rooms to document the foods
minority children eat
. The “very sophisticated”spy cams photograph
students’trays before and after lunch,then an associated software program
calculates the total number of calories each child consumed.

This administration has been particularly solicitous to those who barely
speak the language. The Labor Department,headed by Hilda
Solis
,spent $10.7
million
to provide safety training to “low
literacy or limited English proficiency.”

The program’s wording proves the Obama administration is explicitly catering
to first generation immigrants,most of them poorly educated and in this country
illegally. Richard Alba of the University of Albany’s Mumford Center claims
limited English is….

President Obey-Me Is Not Being Obeyed

President Obey-Me Is Not Being Obeyed

By James
Lewis

Rejection is no fun, especially if you’re a heavenly
rock star with a savior complex.  When people with narcissistic personalities
come into psychotherapy, they often complain that nobody loves them — and they
can’t understand it, because aren’t they just the most lovable fluffy dolls in
the world?

 

This is not Harry Truman.  It’s not Herman Cain.  It’s
a guy who loves being worshiped, and he can’t accept it when the crowds stop
cheering.

 

Narcissists are not nice.  They treat others as
puppets on strings.  The rest of us get  drawn in by their superficial charm,
and then, after a while, we figure out that we’ve been had.  As soon as we walk
away, the result is a towering rage by the narcissist.  We all know people like
that.

 

This is all routine psychiatric manual
stuff.

 

If you can handle a little more, President Obama is an
interesting mix of narcissism and “Oppositional
Defiant Disorder
.”  No other president in history has actually given his
fellow Americans the fickle finger of fate in public, to the cheers and
applause of his own followers.  This is not  Thomas Jefferson or Abe Lincoln.
This is immature kid
stuff
.

 

So here we are.  Our moronic MedioCrats have gotten
America stuck with a man who was never tested by adversity.  Unlike Herman Cain,
Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and the other GOP candidates, he isn’t used to
scraping his knees on the playground and then just going “pick yourself up, dust
yourself off, start all over again.”

 

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers sang “Pick yourself up”
in the 1936 hit Swing Time (Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fielding).  That
was in the depth of the Great Depression.  “Pick yourself up” is the song of
ordinary Americans who tackle the hard jobs, which is why it was so popular.
It’s still a great
song
.

 

America doesn’t sing “Pick yourself up” anymore.  All
we sing is “I’m a victim!  My parents don’t love me!  I don’t want to pick
myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again!  Help me!  Give me free
money!
”  Tens of millions of kids have been raised by moms without dads,
and they are mommified — they expect fulsome flattery just to get out of bed in
the morning.

 

If you doubt that, check out the photos of thousands
of rich kids with Apple iPads sitting on Wall Street, trying to figure out what
they’re supposed to be protesting.  The “Days of Rage” are really the “days of
narcissistic rage.”  These kids are as phony and self-indulgent as the Obey-Me
administration.  If you don’t adore them for giving us the finger, there is
something wrong with you.  And why aren’t you paying for their health care for
the rest of their lives?

 

According to Michael
Goodwin
in the New York Post:

 

I have heard basically the same story four times in
the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and
Washington and are spread across the political spectrum.

The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone
wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to
friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political
strategist.

Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have
little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner
both have complained … that they are shut out of important
decisions.

The president’s workdays are said to end early, often
at 4 p.m. He usually has dinner in the family residence with his wife and
daughters, then retreats to a private office. One person said he takes a stack
of briefing books. Others aren’t sure what he does.

If the reports are accurate, and I believe they are,
they paint a picture of an isolated man trapped in a collapsing
presidency.”

 

Before saying anything else, please do not forget who
sold us this immature Napoleon Bonaparte.  It was the power clique of the left,
the Democrats and the media, who are just different faces of the same beast.
Obama’s rage and withdrawal into his private cult was predictable in 2008 and in
2004, when he rocketed to stardom with his Democratic Convention speech.
Narcissists are incredibly stuck and predictable — unless they’ve been honed
and polished by difficult life experiences, that is.  If the MedioCrats couldn’t
spot Obama as a grossly immature, utterly self-centered individual, it is
because he reflected their own psychology.  It was a hall of
mirrors.

 

We are therefore seeing not just Obama himself.  If
you look at the over-the-top rage and self-regard of the radical left, they are
all little Obamas.  Paul Krugman is just another Obama, ranting in his little
corner of the NYT op-ed page.  George Soros has written (in his autobiography)
about his own grandiosity.  Hugo Chávez expressed outrage at the “horrible
repression” of those thousands of kids camping out overnight on Wall Street, and
El Jefe Hugo is just another Obama.  He is a generalissimo of the left, like
Castro and Putin, Marx, Lenin and Stalin, the whole panoply of towering egos.
Malignant narcissism and self-glorification is the mass neurosis of the radical
Left.

 

If you doubt that the “Rage” campers are like that,
just listen to their rhetoric.  They are “progressives,” which means they are
way ahead of everybody else.  Progressive is a new name for “vanguard of the
revolution,” the preferred piece of self-flattery until the Soviet Union fell
apart.

 

The left has seen a century of murderous failures by
the radical left, and they still don’t get the point.  They are stuck on stupid, as
General Russell Honore said during Hurricane Katrina.  Mental fixedness is
another marker of the extremist left.  Like Woody Allen in
Sleeper
, slipping on the same giant banana peel over and over
again, they can’t get out of their own mental traps.

 

This stuff is all part of the human condition, and
it’s been around since King Herod the Great and Oedipus Rex.  The trouble is
when a truly immature narcissist, surrounded by his own tiny inner cult, gets
elected to the highest office in the land.  Americans have never been dumb
enough to do that, though they came close with Woodrow Wilson and
FDR.

 

This time we, the American people, have really blown
it.

 

The result is dangerous.  It’s not just the
incompetence, fraud, and  mismanagement, though those are bad enough.  What we
are facing today is genuine danger to our national security and
welfare.

 

That’s the most troubling fact to see, but I’ll bet
that in major capitals around the world, it is beginning to hit home.  If we can
see it, you can bet that others — intelligence agencies and power-mongers
around the world — see the same things.

They will try to exploit our weak and fragile
president as much as they can.

Why America Needs Herman Cain

Why America Needs Herman Cain

By Ed
Kaitz

Niccolò Machiavelli once said that “the man who adapts
his course of action to the nature of the times will succeed, and likewise, the
man who sets his course of action out of tune with the times will come to
grief.”

 

What I’d like to argue in this essay is that based on
the current “nature of the times” in America, Herman Cain must be the GOP
nominee for president.  In fact, Cain’s nomination represents what could be the
last and best opportunity Americans have to pry our battered country out from
the clutches of the increasingly strident, divisive, and Marxist pro-Obama
Democrat left.

 

Conversely, if the nomination goes to Rick Perry or
Mitt Romney, it will simply confirm my suspicion that the GOP base is absolutely
clueless when it comes to appreciating the unique contours of the American
left’s long-term strategy to undermine our nation’s constitutional heritage and
disposition.

 

The left has successfully poisoned any possibility for
a white conservative to attract enough minority voters on a platform based on
America’s colorblind founding principles.  Even a Romney or Perry victory, in
other words, will leave America as viciously divided as ever and will merely set
the stage for more Republican compromise with political opponents who rarely if
ever compromise.

 

Martin Luther King, in his 1963 “Letter from a
Birmingham City Jail,” said that when the “disinherited children of God sat down
at lunch counters they were in reality standing up for the best in the American
dream and the most sacred values in our Judeo-Christian heritage.”  In addition,
said King, “[black people] were carrying our whole nation back to those great
walls of democracy which were dug deep by the Founding Fathers in the
formulation of the Constitution and the Declaration of
Independence.”

 

King’s early Tea Party proclivities don’t seem to
garner much attention these days.

 

Indeed, soon after King issued those inspiring
remarks, the anti-American left began a long-term and sinister project to wed
Marxist ideology to racial politics in order to frighten white conservatives
into questioning the very basis of their country’s constitutional identity.  The
left’s goal back then was, according to philosopher Eric Hoffer, to “soften up
the white majority and beat it into a pulp.”

 

The left’s long-term objective was to both define a
new standard of civic righteousness and increase the power of the state by
championing the cause of America’s minority populations against what the left
considered the “oppressive” merit-based ethos of “reactionary” white America.
Epithets such as “Oreo” and “sellout” and “acting white,” for example, were
fashioned by leftists in order to intimidate both whites and minorities into
questioning the commonsense beliefs about personal initiative and self-reliance
built into the European Enlightenment tradition.  Duke professor Stanley Fish,
for example, captured the essence of this racial strategy a couple of decades
later in a defense of affirmative action that he wrote
for the Atlantic back in 1993:

 

Individualism, fairness, merit — these three words
are continually in the mouths of our up to date, newly respectable bigots who
have learned that they need not put on a white hood or bar access to the ballot
box in order to secure their ends.

 

And over the years, while a sincere but incredibly
naïve GOP pinned its election fortunes on the “economy,” thousands of teachers
in thousands of classrooms across the country found more and more reasons not to
present America’s founding tradition in a positive light.

 

Indeed, in one of the most prophetic books written in
the last few decades — Beyond All Reason: The Radical Assault on
Truth in American Law
— constitutional law professors Daniel Farber and
Suzanna Sherry argued in 1997 that the quiet invasion of “radical
multiculturalism” in American law schools has put professors “who cling to
Enlightenment aspirations” at some risk “of being labeled racists or bigots.”
Radical multiculturalists were able to accomplish this amazing feat by
relentlessly advancing the claim that “conceptions of merit are invented by the
powerful to reinforce their dominant position in society.”

 

The reason why Ronald Reagan’s conservative
“revolution” miscarried so quickly, in other words, is precisely the same reason
why constitutional law “scholar” and class warfare socialist Barack Obama
captured the most powerful office in the world so soon after Reagan left it: a
perfect storm or “righteous wind” that combined weak-kneed “compassionate” white
conservatives newly softened and distressed over the moral underpinnings of
their own merit-based ideology with legions of self-righteous champions of
“people of color” eager to unleash academia’s long, simmering, and toxic blend
of Marxism, social justice, and identity politics.

 

Mr. Obama stewed for years in this racially charged
environment — not only in college, but in the pews of his pastor Jeremiah
Wright’s black liberation “theology” church.  The effects of Obama’s one-sided
and rather crude education slipped out occasionally on the campaign trail in
2008.  At a Florida fundraiser, for example, Mr. Obama insinuated
that Republicans would create a state of fear by using Obama’s race as a means
to harvest votes for John McCain:

 

We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run.
They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid
of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention
he’s black?

 

The Wall Street Journal‘s James Taranto was
one of the few observers at the time to expose Obama’s pathetic attempt to
malign an entire political party as racist:

 

Obama is baselessly accusing Republicans of racial
prejudice, or at least of cynically pandering to racial prejudice. But by
wording this ‘accusation’ as a prediction, Obama is able to cast aspersions
without needing any evidence to back them up. He implicitly ascribes to the GOP
the view that voters are prejudiced against blacks, then calls on voters to
prove they are not by voting for Obama.

 

One has to add the word “white” to “Republican,”
however, for Taranto’s claims about “racial prejudice” to make any
sense.

 

Allan Bloom once said that “society’s greatest madness
may seem normal to itself.”  Indeed, an American candidate for president
succeeded in getting himself elected even after implying that members of the
opposition party in his own country are racists.  However, according to Newton’s
Third Law, the left’s carefully crafted attack on conservative white America was
bound to give birth to its very nemesis: a highly driven, eloquent, and
successful black political candidate who, unlike our current president, has
nothing but effusive gratitude for the opportunities his country has given
him.

 

Highly esteemed pundits including Daniel
Henninger
, Dorothy
Rabinowitz
, and Michael
Barone
are coming to recognize that Herman Cain’s unique combination of
business expertise, educational credentials, inspiring background, and love of
country is striking a deep cord among American voters.  But the most important
factor may be, as Ms. Rabinowitz observed recently, “Mr. Cain’s unfailing
capacity to speak as though from a core of fire deep inside
him.”

 

The left has spent decades trying to smother that
fire, and to some degree, most white political candidates for president are now
damaged goods — they tend to find it more prudent to triangulate, manage,
strategize, compromise, and appease.  They are also highly unlikely to
accomplish anything close to marginalizing today’s alarmingly radical Democrat
party.  In short, the GOP needs to elevate and highlight courageous and
passionate Tea Party favorites like Star Parker, Allen West, and Nikki Haley
rather than the more tepid Mitt Romney types.

 

On a national stage, Herman Cain and other minority
conservative candidates have the ability to send shockwaves not only through the
political landscape, but down deep into the dark corners of academia, where
legions of liberal professors continue to wield a very harmful but successful
narrative in order to beat young America’s potential defenders — both white and
nonwhite — into a pulp.

 

A Herman Cain-headed ticket for 2012 would be
unbeatable.  It would also represent a new dawn in America where gratitude,
confidence, and initiative would overwhelm the resentment, anger and ingratitude
so characteristic of left-wing political culture.

 

It’s the nature of the times.
