Using his pen, a phone and a teleprompter to masterfully orchestrate world affairs as only a token community organizer can, peace-maker Obama may need to launch kinetic military action in order to save face…

On the bright side, Barack Hussein Obama finally earned his prematurely-awarded Nobel Peace Prize for helping 2 world superpowers – China and Russia – form a strong alliance that will continue to mock, manipulate and ultimately destroy weak dictator-wannabes.

Predictable UPDATE (03.07.2014):  China Applauds Putin’s Rejection Of Obama

(dailycaller) Russian President Vladimir Putin isn’t budging from Crimea, the Chinese government is signaling support for him and President Barack Obama is taking a weekend vacation in the Florida Keys.

Obama and Putin held another 90-minute phone call Thursday night, in which Obama urged Putin to drop his support for Crimean secession from Ukraine.


Russia And China ‘In Agreement’ Over Ukraine

(Sky) Russia has said China is largely “in agreement” over Ukraine, after other world powers condemned Moscow for sending troops into the country.

Hundreds of Russian soldiers have surrounded a military base in Crimea, preventing Ukrainian soldiers from going in or out.

Hat Tip: Oleg @ The Peoples Cube

As Casey Kasem used to croon, “Anytime [in music] that you can reach somebody on an emotional level, you’re really connecting!”

Oleg of The Peoples Cube – Sad Hill’s partner in ‘crime’ – is one of America’s finest Paul Reveres. And here’s exactly why…

From American Thinker:

Oleg Atbashian, a writer and graphic artist from the former USSR, is the author of Shakedown Socialism, of which David Horowitz said, “I hope everyone reads this book.” In 1994 he moved to the U.S. with the hope of living in a country ruled by reason and common sense, appreciative of its freedoms and prosperity. To his dismay, he discovered a nation deeply infected by the leftist disease of “progressivism” that was arresting true societal progress. American movies, TV, and news media reminded him of his former occupation as a visual propaganda artist for the Communist Party. Oleg is the creator of a satirical website ThePeoplesCube.com, which Rush Limbaugh described on his show as “a Stalinist version of The Onion.” His graphic work frequently appears in the American Thinker.

And if Oleg’s recent real-world experience watching history repeat itself isn’t enough to make you spineless ‘Republicans‘ and weak-kneed Christians stand up to our tyrannical regime, then perhaps Kitty Werthmann’s – South Dakota State Director; Holocaust survivor – urgent warning will: HERE

Putin Enrolls Obama In Ukrainian Obedience School

(WaPo) A president who has made clear to the American public that the “tide of war is receding” has also made clear to foreign leaders, including opportunists in Russia, that he has no appetite for a new one. What is left is a vacuum once filled, at least in part, by the possibility of American force.

“If you are effectively taking the stick option off the table, then what are you left with?” said Andrew C. Kuchins, who heads the Russia and Eurasia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “I don’t think that Obama and his people really understand how others in the world are viewing his policies.”

Rarely has a threat from a U.S. president been dismissed as quickly — and comprehensively — as Obama’s warning Friday night to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin. The former community organizer and the former Cold Warrior share the barest of common interests, and their relationship has been defined far more by the vastly different ways they see everything from gay rights to history’s legacy.

Of course it would be ‘racist’ and ‘offensive’ to ban Cinco de Mayo – an alcohol binge drinking festival – in America’s public schools…

And of course now would be a really crappy time to mention that back in 2010 our tyrannical Feds awarded $4.5 billion to illegal aliens: HERE

COURT RULING: OK To Punish Students Wearing American Flag T-Shirts On Cinco de Mayo

(AP) Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials’ concerns of racial violence outweighed students’ freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on that day.

The unanimous three-judge panel said past problems gave school officials sufficient and justifiable reasons for their actions. The court said schools have wide latitude in curbing certain civil rights to ensure campus safety.

“Our role is not to second-guess the decision to have a Cinco de Mayo celebration or the precautions put in place to avoid violence,” Judge M. Margaret McKeown wrote for the panel. The past events “made it reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real,” she wrote.

The case garnered national attention as many expressed outrage that students were barred from wearing patriotic clothing. The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based American Freedom Law Center, a politically conservative legal aid foundation, and other similar organizations took up the students’ case and sued the high school and the school district.

William Becker, one of the lawyers representing the students, said he plans to ask a special 11-judge panel of the appeals court to rehear the case. Becker said he would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court if he loses again.

“The 9th Circuit upheld the rights of Mexican students celebrating a holiday of another country over U.S. student proudly supporting this country,” Becker said.

UPDATE: 02.27.2014 (‘10 States Aim To Retake Control Of Health Care‘ – scroll down)

Time for a real tea party America; a Boston Tea Party v2.0.

Better yet, time to impeach the Liar-in-Chief and remove his boot-licking ‘Republicans’ that occupy Congress…

IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! Obamacare Tax MUST Be Paid With 2014 Tax Return

(Americans for Tax Reform) Agency employs Orwellian term “Shared Responsibility Payment” to describe Obamacare individual mandate tax.

President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obamacare individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

In “Four Tax Facts about the Health Care Law for Individuals” the agency writes:

Your 2014 tax return will ask if you had insurance coverage or qualified for an exemption.  If not, you may owe a shared responsibility payment when you file in 2015.

In “The Individual Shared Responsibility Payment- An Overview” the agency warns Americans they must prove they were covered each and every month of the year:

For any month in 2014 that you or any of your dependents don’t maintain coverage and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your 2014 tax return filed in 2015.


In “IRS Reminds Individuals of Health Care Choices for 2014”the agency details the calculations Americans can look forward to if they are liable for the tax:

If you (or any of your dependents) do not maintain coverage and do not qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your return. In general, the payment amount is either a percentage of your household income or a flat dollar amount, whichever is greater. You will owe 1/12th of the annual payment for each month you (or your dependents) do not have coverage and are not exempt. The annual payment amount for 2014 is the greater of:

• 1 percent of your household income that is above the tax return filing threshold for your filing status, such as Married Filing Jointly or single, or

• Your family’s flat dollar amount, which is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child, limited to a maximum of $285.

As confirmed by previous  IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.

Once fully phased in, the Obamacare individual mandate tax will rise steeply, to a maximum of 2.5 percent of Adjusted Gross Income or $2,085 – whichever is higher.

UPDATE (02.27.2014):

10 States Aim To Retake Control Of Health Care

(dailycaller) Americans are now watching the entire Act collapse under the weight of its own illegitimacy. Obamacare has, thus far, served to discourage Americans from working, vastly expanded the Medicaid entitlement, caused the cancelation of millions of private insurance plans, pledged tax funds to underwrite insurance’s losses, increased premium costs by an average of 41 percent, and distanced doctors from patients.

Jonathan Turley, noted constitutional scholar who generally supports President Obama’s policies has said,

I think many people will come to loathe that they remained silent during this period. . . . I think that many people will look back at this period in history and see nothing but confusion as to why people remained so silent when the president asserted these types of unilateral actions. You have a president who is claiming the right to basically rewrite or ignore or negate federal laws. That is a dangerous thing.

Of course, when Americans think of federal law, this spectacle of harried negotiation and frantic deal-making that produced a 2,700 page reconciliation product called the PPACA “law” was as repugnant as Washington sausage-making gets. Key Senators and Congress-members writing in a pending federal appellate amicus brief called the law “disjointed, confusing, and even self-contradictory,” describing it as a “preliminary draft” that was pushed to preempt the filibuster after the election of Republican Senator Scott Brown.

The American public is well aware that Congress generally did not read the PPACA, nor did members deliberate the terms in reconciliation. Now that we are all “finding out what is in it,” sixty-four percent of Americans polled said that the ACA would not have passed “if we knew then what we know today.”

States seeking a way to defend the constitutional order have signed on to lawsuits challenging the legal foundations upon which Obamacare is rationalized. So far, legal challenges have failed.

sub par obama golf poster la los angeles tournament sad hill news-1

Barring physical revolution, one of the best ways to influence – or correct the trajectory of – a sick and destructive culture is through song and/or art.

Think of decadent MTV’s impact on our society – powerful, lasting, but mostly ruinous. Better yet, consider the once-cherished inspiration gospel hymns provided during our nation’s formidable years; instead of that 7-11 crap (singing 7 words, 11 times) today’s ‘church’ serves up on the overhead projector.

REVOLUTION: Obama ‘Sub Par’ Counter-Culture Posters Blanket Los Angeles

(American Thinker) Dozens of posters of President Obama with a golf club and a caption “Sub Par” have been spotted outside the PGA’s golf tournament near the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, as well as near Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica, California, all of them upscale and liberal enclaves.

A quick web search discovered a number of other locations in LA with “Sub Par” posters pasted over signal boxes, hanging from the wires and lampposts on busy intersections, glued to park benches, and even attached as small stickers to the walls of public bathrooms. This bears all the marks of an anonymous guerilla street art action by local artists.

No one is claiming responsibility for this gutsy guerilla art project, and with a very good reason: in the heart of a Democrat-run city financed by Hollywood studios, any artist engaging in such “counter-progressive” activities would do well to remain anonymous.

In spite of the self-righteous promotion of tolerance and diversity by the “progressive” elites, they themselves tend to rule with a humorless iron fist of religious zealots, intolerant of any deviation from the dogma (unless the Party dogma transmogrifies; then you’re expected to transmogrify with it). And there’s hardly a deadlier sin in their bible than mocking a “progressive” deity, one of whom unquestionably is Barack Obama.

A Stalin-like intolerance of all dissent and religious worship of “progressive” icons is most rampant in such strongholds of progressivism as news media, academia, and especially the arts. An artist who refuses to conform and rebels against the “progressive” establishment gets immediately blacklisted, subjected to a witch hunt, shunned by his colleagues, and ultimately loses any chance of further employment in the industry.


The prospect of the art world rebelling against the leftist establishment frightens the Left more than the Republican Party campaigning ever will. A bunch of hip, younger artists amusing themselves by blasting leftist icons may start a trend that will turn out to be more consequential than all the costly election strategies devised by well-paid GOP consultants in Washington. Because, as Andrew Breitbart frequently said, politics is downstream of culture.

If my instincts are correct, we will be seeing more provocative street art like this. Conservatives will do well to support it.

…which makes Sad Hill a racist.

.gif Of Obama Kicking Door Is Racist! Student Forced To Apologize

(Daily CallerA student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist.

The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.

What happened next is almost unbelievable: Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.”For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a group assignment,” are micro-aggressions that betray the campus as a hostile place for students of color.

The .gif of Obama kicking a door was racist because of the “cultural, historical and living legacy surrounding people of color—particularly young men—being portrayed as violent,” according to the apology letter that Farnan was forced to write.

Technically, Farnan got off easy. Under the McGill student government’s Orwellian “equity policy,” Farnan could have been suspended or even dismissed from his position as vice president in the organization. The decision to force Farnan to apologize was apparently made by an “equity commissioner,” whose will can only be overturned by a two-thirds majority of the student government.

Like a true victim of the thought police, Farnan was forced to denounce his heretical email.

“Despite the innocent intentions influencing my decision to use this particular image, I have come to recognize the negative implications of adding the .GIF image within this given context,” he said. “By using this particular image of President Obama, I unknowingly perpetuated this living legacy and subsequently allowed a medium of [Student Society of McGill University] communication to become the site of a microaggression; for this, I am deeply sorry.”

Guess these .gifs of Obama are ‘racist’ too, huh?

See?! Even non-profits can profit…

Profitting From Terrorism: 9/11 Museum Raises Admission To $24

(Breitbart) Joe Daniels, President and CEO of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, has announced a $24 mandatory admission fee for the 9/11 Memorial. [...]

Salaries at the “non-profit” 9/11 Memorial and Museum are obscene. This allegedly non-profit organization is supposed to be a tribute to 9/11 victims. “It was built to tell the story of 9/11 to future generations about the worst day in American history. It was never intended to be a revenue-generating tourist attraction with a prohibitive budget and entrance fee.”

Daniels’s salary was last reported to be $371,307. He received huge raises for three years running. As far back as 2009, there were no fewer than eleven staffers at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum who each made more than $170,000. Four had salaries higher than $320,000.

The oh-so liberal ‘progressive’ town of Fort Collins, Colorado…

Proud home of Balloon Boy and homosexual-Jesus supporting ‘pastors’. The same town that killed lucrative job-creating Allegiant Air contracts on the day Obama arrived at its failing airport, then forced people-employing gun accessory manufacturers to close their shops and flee the area, but heralded the idea of transsexual access to girl’s school bathrooms.

Currently, the self-proclaimed ‘über safe’ meth-ring town that money laundered $260 million of US-funded stimulus through bankrupt Abound Solar is using $8 million in taxpayer funds to grow bomb-sniffing plants, yet viciously defends its homegrown #occupy $10 million arsonist – largest property damage caused by a single anti-1%er, ever.

It’s a hipster Utopia, where rules that prevent kids from touching rocks in school have fast-tracked it into becoming our nation’s leading test ground for Agenda 21 – thanks in part to Pat Stryker’s Bohemian Companies and Jared Polis as explained in the book, ‘The Blueprint: How The Democrats Won Colorado‘.

Any questions as to what the true ‘culture’ – rather agenda – might be of this trendy college town that boasts a population of 150,000 when CSU is in session?

Predictably, a socialist breeding ground for anti-American and anti-Christian values of this caliber – rated ‘Top Places To Live‘ by government-subsidized mainstream media – Fort Collins now has high school administrators caught in what appears to be a flat-out lie; lying to their students, to their parents, to their faculty, and to the entire United States considering most major news sites are running this story.

The problem is, long before Fort Collins High School administrators backpedalled claiming ‘Merica Day could be offensive to ‘rednecks’, they originally and clearly stated ‘Merica Day was banned because they feared it ‘offensive to international students.’

This from their local paper’s 1st run, as-in straight from the horse’s mouth…

Fort Collins, Colorado High School Bans ‘Merica Day

(Coloradoan) Parents and students expressed outrage on Facebook on Monday after administrators at Fort Collins High School nixed a student idea to host an upcoming spirit day called “’Merica Day.”

The situation caught the attention of Fox News and has some community members saying the school should be “ashamed of their un-American PC censorship” of a day students intended to celebrate a country that’s home to people of diverse backgrounds and origins.

“I can see both sides, but I think it’s kind of absurd that we can’t celebrate the country we’re in — whether you’re from it or just visiting. It’s a country,” said Ellie Goodspeed, a senior and treasurer of the school’s student council.

Goodspeed said the juniors are in charge of planning themes for each day of spirit week, celebrated during the week of Valentine’s Day. They suggested “’Merica Day,” but administrators, she said, thought it could be offensive to the school’s international students.

According to a statement sent Monday night to the Coloradoan by Poudre School District spokeswoman Danielle Clark: “Building administrators met with the students to discuss the inconsistency of this day versus the other planned theme days, including PJ day and Twin day.”

Goodspeed said students suggested a compromise in “My Country Monday,” which they believed would allow students to celebrate any country they chose. She said building administrators originally turned that option down but on Monday agreed it was OK.

Clark said she couldn’t confirm whether the “My Country Monday” compromise was originally rejected but said Principal Mark Eversole ultimately told students he thought it was a good way for students to show pride in their country of origin.

“It turned into a big deal really fast,” Goodspeed said.

Senior Stephanie Livingston thought the school’s decision was hypocritical, given that students celebrate the Mexican culture holiday Cinco de Mayo. She also believed prohibition of “’Merica Monday” was an affront to students and their family members who have served in the Armed Forces.

“By doing this the administrators disrespect the U.S. Constitution and veterans like me,” Craig Hewitt wrote on the Fort Collins High School Facebook page. Some commenters called for the school’s staff to be fired, while others lauded students for being willing to stand up and offer a compromise.

Similar criticism broke out in 2012 and early 2013 when members of a cultural club at Rocky Mountain High School recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish and Arabic, respectively.


Before The Coloradoan – another Gannett propaganda machine – starts ‘modifying’ their article and deleting ‘racist’ comments from Conservatives, or FCHS’s ‘Administrators’ continue back-tracking, I made screen captures for chronological posterity.

If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin sad hill news

Sure, RINO Darrell Issa attempted to make it clear to us serfs that Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama would not be made ‘political targets’ during any Benghazi investigations (HERE), but he wasn’t – and still isn’t – counting on a fight from the undying true American spirit that will not accept tyrannical rule as the norm.

Patriots, if there ever was a battle to pick – one that could potentially usurp our dictatorship – this is it. Let’s show these token Marxist community organizers that it does make a difference…

Benghazi Victims’ Families, Conservative Leaders to Boehner, “Install Select Committee Now!”

(Breitbart) Three family members of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack and scores of conservative and military leaders are kicking off 2014 by demanding that House Speaker John Boehner install a select committee.

[…] In the letter to Boehner, which was delivered on early Monday afternoon and provided exclusively to Breitbart News, Sean Smith’s mother, Pat Smith, and uncle, Michael Ingmire, along with Tyrone Woods’ father, Charles Woods, joined the call for a select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal. Other notable signers include former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), conservative leader Ginni Thomas of Liberty Consulting, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, Freedom Center president David Horowitz, and scores of other military and conservative movement leaders.

“We write to express our grave concern over the failure of your House of Representatives to extract the truth from the Obama administration concerning the attack on our diplomatic and intelligence facilities in Benghazi, Libya; and, the brutal deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stephens, U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and security officers Ty Woods and Glen Doherty,” the coalition wrote to Boehner.

Specifically, a House select committee on Benghazi would be similar to the Watergate select committee formed in the U.S. Senate during the scandal that took down President Richard Nixon. It would be a focused committee with members from both the Democrat and Republican parties and staffed with the proper resources to conduct a thorough investigation of the matter. Thus far, Boehner has had five separate House committees investigating the matter that have not succeeded. He has also publicly opposed the creation of a select committee, saying he does not think it is necessary.

There is currently a bill in the House of Representatives, H. Res 36 from Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), that would create such a committee. It has, including Wolf, 179 cosponsors according to the Library of Congress, well more than the majority of the House GOP majority–which is 232 Republican members strong. Yet, despite the overwhelming support from the House GOP conference, Boehner continues to refuse to allow a vote on the installation of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal and continues to block efforts to bring the bill forward.

Now that this new coalition is stepping forward, Boehner may end up facing enough pressure to force him to create the committee.

The letter’s signers are demanding Boehner install a select committee to investigate what happened. They argue that Boehner’s unwillingness to create an official investigative body has benefitted President Barack Obama’s administration, as it has taken advantage of the lack of focus in House investigations.

“To date, five (5) different committees of the House have conducted separate hearings, uncovering information in a piecemeal fashion lacking professional investigators,” the coalition wrote to Boehner. “The five committees’ efforts are disjointed and uncoordinated. The Obama administration has benefited from that dysfunctional process to hide the truth.”
