Imagine That … Barack Obama Leaves Out “God” & “God Bless America” From 4th of July Weekly Address (VIDEO)

Of course this should come as a shock to none …

During this weekends 4th of July presidential address, Barack Obama remembered to talk about grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, reminded us it was Maliah’s birthday, referenced the Declaration, thanked those who defend America, cheered on Team USA, woman’s World Cup soccer team, but seemed to miss something rather important at the end. How does one do a weekly address about America’s independence and not say, God Bless America? You know damn well he read this from a teleprompter, so either the words were loaded in there or they weren’t. If not, wouldn’t one think that Obama could ad lib and add them to his weekly address? I guess not. With no more elections left, I guess he feels the need not to say it anymore.

So Obama referenced during his address that our founding patriots declared our independence, proclaiming that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I guess we know longer call them Our Founding Fathers. This was a rather interesting comment as Obama said, “And it’s been the work of each successive generation to keep this founding creed safe by making sure its words apply to every single American.” Note to Obama, you said American … not illegal immigrant.


“Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
The White House
July 4, 2015

Happy Fourth of July, everybody. Like many of you, Michelle, Sasha, Malia, and I are going to spend the day outdoors, grilling burgers and dogs, and watching the fireworks with our family and friends. It’s also Malia’s birthday, which always makes the Fourth extra fun for us.

As always, we’ve invited some very special guests to our backyard barbecue – several hundred members of our military and their families. On this most American of holidays, we remember that all who serve here at home and overseas, represent what today is all about. And we remember that their families serve, too. We are so grateful for their service and for their sacrifice.

We remember as well that this is the day when, 239 years ago, our founding patriots declared our independence, proclaiming that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

A couple of centuries later, we have made ourselves into a big, bold, dynamic, and diverse country. We are of all races, we come from all places, we practice all faiths, and believe in all sorts of different ideas. But our allegiance to this declaration – this idea – is the creed that binds us together. It’s what, out of many, makes us one.

And it’s been the work of each successive generation to keep this founding creed safe by making sure its words apply to every single American. Folks have fought, marched, protested, even died for that endeavor, proving that as Americans, our destiny is not written for us, but by us.

We honor those heroes today. We honor everyone who continually strives to make this country a better, stronger, more inclusive, and more hopeful place. We, the people, pledge to make their task our own – to secure the promise of our founding words for our own children, and our children’s children.

And finally, what better weekend than this to cheer on Team USA – good luck to the U.S. Women’s National Team in the World Cup Final!

Thanks, everybody. From my family to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July.”

EXIT QUESTION: Are hotdogs and hamburgers allowed on Michelle Obama’s approved lunch foods?

Mitt Romney Nails Barack Obama Over Eye Popping, Socialist Video Tape … “He Wants Redistribution – I Disagree!”

Romney and Obama … Two Different Views of America.

GOP Presidential candidate goes on Fox News, ‘Your World with Neil Cavuto’ to defend and discuss the differences between himself and Barack Obama when it comes to the economy. Romney defended his “47%” comments and went after Barack Obama for his stunning admission from 1998, “I actually believe in redistribution”.

Romney’s vision of America is much different from Obama’s big government, cradle to grave nanny state where a majority of Americans are dependent and beholden to government. Romney said when questioned about Obama’s redistribution, ” I disagree … I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives”.

Partial transcript of Mitt Romney on Barack Obama from the Gateway Pundit:

“Frankly we have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

In the end America, it is up to you. Do you want an America where you have the opportunity to succeed and fail or do you want to be a kept, obedient society, dependent and beholden to the federal government forever. The choice is yours. However, I hardly think this is why Our Founding Fathers fought a War of Independence to be dependent.

Declaration of Independence – IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

The Lonely Conservative brings up yet another example of Media bias. While the corrupt liberal media complex has no issue playing the Romney fund raising “47%” VIDEO, we hear crickets when it comes to Obama 1998 socialist “I like redistribution” video. Why are we not surprised? The shameful media is all in for Obama.

Joey Chestnut Still Top Dog as he Devours 68 Hot Dogs to Win 6th Consecutive Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island … NYC Mayor Bloomberg Wins Hypocrite of the Week Award

If its the 4th of July, it means the annual Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest from Coney Island, NY … it was gagtacular!

Once again Joey “Jaws” Chestnut was the victor in Jordonesque fashion as Chestnut won his 6th consecutive Nathans hotdog eating contest. Chestnut overwhelmed the competition and consumed 68 hotdogs and buns in 10 minutes. OMG, can you say Pepito-Bismal? Chestnut walked away once again with the mustard yellow belt winning by 14 hot dogs. Second place went to Tim Janus of New York with a distant 52 hot dogs scarfed down. Chestnut was proud of his accomplishment, although he stated he had wanted to break his record. Joey stated that next year he plans on going for 70. YIKES!!!

More than 40,000 spectators, some dressed as hot dogs, ketchup and mustard bottles, watched Chestnut out-eat his competition by almost 16 hot dogs to take home his sixth straight Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog-Eating title on the U.S. Independence Day holiday.

“I came here hoping I could do 70 (hot dogs), but I am happy with 68. It is a world record after all and I will be back next year to see if I can go one better,” said the 28-year-old Chestnut from San Jose, California.

I wonder if Michelle Obama watched the nitrate devouring contest?

However, Chestnut might have been over-shadowed by the “golden H” belt and the hypocrite of the week award given hands down to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The food “Nazi”  Mayor who has banned large sodas in NYC actually had the audacity to attend the weigh in of the 29 competitive eating contestants in Tuesday. Some how inhaling hotdogs is different than large sodas. The “hypocrite” Bloomberg actually tried to justify his hypocrisy by saying eating in moderation was the key.

Having it (a hot dog) occasionally is fine,” he said. “If you want to eat 65 hot dogs in 10 minutes, that’s even fine. Just don’t do it more than once a year and you won’t have a problem.”

Dude wanna bet? What part about COMPETITIVE EATING IS IN MODERATION!!! Bloomberg has to be either the biggest fool or the most uninformed individual ever. The no salt, no trans-fats, no large soda Mayor seemed to have no issue with hot dogs, even though some physicians have compared them to cigarettes. Bloomberg seems to have no issue with calorie overload.  Um, just curious Mr. Mayor … do you not understand that there is an IFOCE? That stands for Major League Eating & International Federation of Competitive Eating.  They eat more than just hot dogs and more than once a year you idiot, hypocrite, moderation Mayor. Personally, I could care less whether these folks gorge themselves and regular folks have a large soda. Then again, I am not a hypocrite like Mayor Bloomberg.

There was Mr. No Salt, No Transfats and Limited Soda reeling off pun after pun about a food reportedly so bad for you the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine put up a billboard last year comparing hot dogs to cigarettes.

At one point the mayor wondered if the reigning champs would win “or if one of their dogged pursuers will finally ‘ketchup,’ cut the mustard and be pronounced wiener. No question it’s going to be a dog fight.”
