The Obama Christmas Classic Basketball Game to Benefit…. Inner City Youth Obama

Just when you think it’s impossible for this President to demonstrate  any more hubris than he has already….

Fox News reports Obama’s re-election campaign is bringing together more than two dozen National Basketball Association stars for a fundraising basketball game, named after himself – the “Obama Classic Basketball Game” on Dec. 12 in Washington….to benefit his re-election.

With the NBA season in jeopardy because of the lockout, the game will serve as a fundraising All-star game. Others confirmed to play include Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul and Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.

Tickets range from $100 to $5,000 for courtside seats. The money will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account by the Democratic Party and Obama’s re-election campaign.

For up to $5,000 a ticket, the target audience must be the 1%.
We’re already seeing reports this holiday season that with so many people out of work and struggling to keep above water in the Obama economy, people are worried about how they are going to manage their Christmas Shopping.
But fear not, to help get them in a festive mood they can watch Pharaoh Obama’s all-star basketball game to benefit –  – –  Obama.
Another photoshop created by hubby:
Huffington Post reports that the president hasn’t decided whether or not he will even attend the event let alone suit up for it.
As for the players, they are participating as volunteers for the campaign, which seems to blur the line of federal election law but apparently doesn’t cross it.

Saturday Movie Matinee

Glenn Beck interviewed Peter Schweizer  his radio show to discuss his book that documents paramount cronyism in not only Congress, but in the Obama administration as well. In fact, he goes into some detail about how the Obama administration is paying back his fundraisers with green taxpayer money:

House Republicans for a Balanced Budget Amendment:

This week, House Republican freshmen Members held a press conference to discuss the importance of passing a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution and how now is the time for a permanent solution to our nation’s spending-driven debt crisis. We need a balanced budget amendment to ensure a prosperous future for our children and grandchildren. It’s the right thing to do.

Thanks to Judicial Watch, we now have more evidence that Kagan fibbed during her sworn testimony.

• An October 13, 2009, exchange between Kagan and former Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal. Katyal informs Kagan, “We just got Snowe on health care,” referring to Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME). (The bulk of the email exchange reflects a discussion about Kagan, and also provides instructions regarding a hiring decision within the agency, although the nature of the position is unclear. When Katyal asks if Kagan wants to handle the hire via email or in person meeting, Kagan responds, “In person. I’ll call a meeting when I return.”)

• A March 21, 2010, email from Kagan to then-Senior Counselor for Access to Justice Laurence Tribe: “I hear they have the votes Larry!! Simply amazing…” Tribe responds, “So healthcare is basically done! Remarkable.”

• A March 16, 2010, email from Kagan to David Barron, then-acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, asked if he had seen an article by Michael McConnell published in the Wall Street Journal that discussed a strategy by Democrats to “‘deem’ ObamaCare into Law without voting.” “Did you seee [sic] Michael McConnell’s piece in the wsj?” Kagan writes in an email with the subject line “Health care q.” “YES, HE IS GETTING THIS GOING,” replied Barron.

I wasn’t sure based on the email shown on the video, but with that additional information, she sure as hell needs to recuse herself.

Video: Picking Winners and Losers: Obama Silent as Fannie and Freddie Executives Receive Millions in Bonuses – but Ripped “Fat-Cat Bankers” for “Obscene Bonuses”

The Committee on Government Oversight and Reform created this video to remind people of the President’s strong stance against “fat cat bankers” receiving bonuses:

On  Wednesday, the  House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing entitled, “Pay for Performance: Should Fannie and Freddie Executives Be Receiving Millions In Bonuses?”  The hearing examined executive compensation issues at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which are currently held in conservatorship by the Federal Government. Issa played a clip of the above video to start off the hearing:

Key Moments (via Oversight and Reform):

  • “What benchmarks are Fannie and Freddie meeting for such bonuses to kick in, especially in light of the taxpayer loss of approximately $170 billion?” – Rep. Walberg
  • “As I’ve reported in my written statement, these losses that the taxpayers are absorbing are a result of business decisions made pre-conservatorship and mortgages that were originated pre-conservatorship. And one of the focal points for the executive compensation for the executives of Fannie and Freddie are their efforts to try to minimize losses on that book of business. They can’t undo mortgages that are made, but what they can do is they can take aggressive actions to mitigate those losses through loan modifications and other foreclosure prevention activities. And I report monthly to the House Financial Services Committee and the Senate Banking Committee on the efforts that have been undertaken to that end and the array of things in which they are assessed and go to efforts to minimize losses, undertake homeowner assistance, assure that there is ongoing liquidity in the market, and to be working with us on things, such as the servicing improvements.” – Mr. DeMarco
  • “But in light of all that continues on and in light of what Mr. Cummings mentioned also about his people, likewise in my state of Michigan, you stated your opposition yesterday to putting these executives on par with the federal pay scale…  Why do you oppose that? And do you believe federal agencies cannot perform their duties because they don’t offer Wall Street-sized paychecks?” – Rep. Walberg


  • “I oppose it simply for the matter that I believe enacting that and immediately putting all the employees at Fannie and Freddie on a completely different pay scale is going to result in the taxpayer losses to Fannie and Freddie going up, not down… These remain business entities, and they remain regulated entities. They are not government agencies.” – Mr. DeMarco
  • “I understand all of that. Our citizens don’t. We’re at tough times, and sometimes difficult decisions have to be made. And if indeed there’s public service like you indicated, that you want to provide a service, then I think the two gentlemen seated next to you have indicated the same thing. They’re challenges we face.” – Mr. Walberg
  • “Earlier this year, you stated that you would leave to the FHFA what your appropriate compensation would be. If Mr. DeMarco changed course and decided that your compensation should be curtailed, would you be fine with that?” – Rep. Walberg
  • “I would evaluate my own personal options, but that would be the decision of the Board and Director DeMarco.” – Mr. Williams
  • “Don’t you think we could get qualified people to do your jobs and the jobs of those other senior executives without having to pay millions of dollars?” – Rep. Farenthold
  • “This is a new team. We’ve reduced executive compensation by 50%. We’ve reduced the number of senior executives by 30%. But I can tell you, are these jobs competitive? Yes. In the course of three months, I lost five senior vice presidents – out of the company, two with financial services and other companies where I can assure you they were making more money and had better career prospects as a result. These are challenging jobs in challenging circumstances, and we need to pay and reward the people who are doing the job.” – Mr. Williams
  • “Mr. Haldeman, as far as Freddie Mac, you’re the CEO. Do you think it [is a success]?” – Dr. Desjarlais


  • “I would divide the company into two parts, and this is, in part, a reference to an earlier question of whether I would invest in Freddie Mac… I would definitely invest in the company from 2009 on. I’m incredibly proud of the work of our employees from 2009 on. We have a very, very high quality book. Our people are entirely committed to making sure that we participate in responsible lending going forward.” – Mr. Haldeman
  • “Are they justified, then? Should they be given two to three million dollar bonuses?” – Dr. Desjarlais
  • “I believe given the framework that was put in place, they are justified because the framework was designed in consultation with the Special Master of Treasury looking at large financial institutions that operate as private companies, not as government agencies, to develop a compensation structure in amounts, I believe what we struck here was an appropriate balance cognizant of what the marketplace looks like.” – Mr. DeMarco
  • “At what year will Fannie have repaid the Treasury?” – Rep. McHenry
  • “As you know with a 10% dividend on the amount that’s drawed, we will never fully be able to pay back the amount that’s due to the Treasury.” – Mr. Williams


  • “What year will the GSEs be able to repay the taxpayers for this extraordinary support?” – Rep. McHenry


  • “I do not believe they will repay the taxpayer in full.” – Mr. DeMarco
  • “Ever?” – Rep. McHenry
  • “Unless we keep this conservatorship going to my children and beyond, no.” – Mr. DeMarco

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the government picking winners and losers – government interventions using taxpayer money, extracted by the force of law,  against the taxpayers will — a form of Fascism?

Rick Perry To O’Reilly: “Absolutely, He’s a Socialist”

Bill O’Reilly is still not clear on this point? How much more evidence does he need? Of course Obama’s a Socialist, Perry tells him unabashedly. But-but-but Socialism seizes private property, O’Reilly demurs.  Perry brings up the death tax. Okay, good point.

Let’s not forget the looting of the Chrysler and GM bondholders. Under Obama, the Dem majority nationalized health care, one sixth of the economy. Another one sixth was taken over with Net Neutrality. He’s shut down drilling in the Gulf, killing tens of thousands of jobs, he’s postponed shale gas drilling in Ohio for another half year, killing 200,000 more  jobs.  He nixed the Canadian oil pipeline until after his election.

Obama is choking the oil industry, the lifeblood of America.

His labor board tells private companies where they can and can’t build plants. He gives huge government loans to green businesses he knows are doomed to fail. His DOJ sells high powered assault weapons to criminals so they can use the ensuing carnage to blame gun dealers and take away our gun rights.

Since the Republicans gained control of the House, he increasingly rules by executive fiat.

He’s killing our economy with his Socialist policies – Is it any wonder businesses are reluctant to invest under Socialist Obama?
