SNL Mocks Barack Obama & His Ebola Czar Ron Klain: Some People Want to Criticize how We have Handled Ebola. It was no way as Bad as How We Handled ISIS Situation …
For years SNL protected Obama and claimed there was nothing funny about him, not any longer … “This whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments …”
Last nights Saturday Night Live opened with a skit ripping President Barack Obama’s handling of the Ebola virus and his pick of political operative Ron Klain as Ebola czar. The reality is, the skit was reiterating facts and the audience laughed as if it was a punchline. You know it is bad for Obama when even the libs at SNL are mocking him for his clueless ineptitude of handling Ebola and then even referencing other screw ups like the IRS and NSA scandals and the Obamacare website roll out debacle. However, this joke has been a reality to many who have been affected by these scandals. Interestingly enough, SNL did not quite mention all scandals like Fast & Furious and Benghazi-gate where Americans actually died. I guess that wouldn’t be funny, would it?
Welcome to the joke that is the Obama presidency … six years later, it is not very funny to most Americans.
“I assure you, it was nowhere near as bad as how we handled the ISIS situation. Or our various Secret Service mishaps. Or the scandals of the IRS and NSA and I don’t know if you guys remember, but the ObamaCare Website had some pretty serious problems, too. In fact, if you look at all the stuff that’s happened in my second term, this whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments.”
A journalist next pressed Klain to admit “you have no actual medical training or background in dealing with infectious disease.”
Later in the skit, Obama introduces his political operative Ebola czar Ron Klain, who had some words of wisdom for the worried Democrats ahead of the midterm elections for those who may or may not be affected by Ebola.
“The Ebola virus actually flourishes in warmer climates,” so “if you live in a southern state, such as Louisiana, Arkansas, or Kentucky, you actually may want to avoid any large public spaces like, say, a polling booth.” An “exception, however, is that we believe Latinos in red states may actually have an immunity to Ebola.”
Barack Obama Appoints Political Hack and Spin Doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar … The Divider in Chief Strikes Again, “It’s a Political Move from Beginning to End”
SERIOUS SITUATIONS CALL FOR SERIOUS PEOPLE … NOT COMMUNITY AGITATORS PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS.
The Divider in Chief is at it again. Barack Obama announced that he was appointing partisan bureaucrat and spin doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar. As only a community agitator could do, Obama has taken a very serious situation and turned it into partisan politics as Liberals think it is a great idea while conservatives are do not and are much more skeptical. With no medical or public health experience experience what-so-ever, Ron Klain is a Washington insider hired more likely to help the Obama administration message, a.k.a. spin, Ebola and the debacle in hoe the Obama administrations handles it running up to the 2014 midterm elections.
President Obama’s choice of veteran Democratic politico Ron Klain to serve as Ebola czar stunned many Republicans. Their first objection is that Klain has no experience in public health or infectious diseases. But in a larger sense, GOP critics see Klain, a former chief of staff for Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, more as a political operative than a potential leader of the fight against Ebola.
What qualifies Klain for the job, the formal title of which is Ebola Response Coordinator? First, the White House makes no claim of any expertise in health matters. Instead, officials point to Klain’s impressive Washington resume — the jobs with Gore and Biden, plus chief of staff for Clinton administration Attorney General Janet Reno and top positions with Senate Democrats.
“I don’t think it’s going to make any difference one way or the other. Its a PR move from beginning to end. It gives the appearance of motion; this is what Obama specializes in. If you have a VA scandal, an IRS scandal, a Secret Service scandal, you fire the guy at the top so you have the appearance of motion; here you’re putting a guy in who’s supposedly going to coordinate.”
“There’s a quote in the New York Times about what Klain would do, and he said his job is ‘messaging.’ So we have a virus on the loose that turns your organs into liquid, and the answer is to appoint a guy to do the messaging.
Oh wait, here is a qualification to be Ebola czar … was a “key player” in praising Solyndra to Obama and Biden, despite the red flags from auditors. Solyndra is now bankrupt. Can we really afford to have some one in charge of Ebola with such a lack of judgement?
Ron Klain, the newly appointed White House Ebola response coordinator, was one of the senior White House officials who advised that President Obama should visit solar power company Solyndra in 2011, despite an auditor raising red flags about the company’s finances.
According to The Washington Post, Klain was one of the “key players” in the scandal while he worked for Vice President Joe Biden: “Ron Klain, then Biden’s chief of staff, dismissed auditor’s concerns about Solyndra’s solvency, reasoning that all innovative companies come with risk.”
Another Solyndra email, reported by Fox News, indicated that Biden’s office were all fans of Solyndra, and that the staff “about had an orgasm” at the prospect of an Energy Department loan.
UPDATEI I: Can this appointment become any more of a joke? As it appears, Ron Klain will be reporting to former U.N. ambassador and current National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Yes, that same Susan Rice who lost all credibility by going on five network Sunday shows and lied that the terrorist Benghazi Consulate attack was the result of a video tape.
President Barack Obama plans on disregardiging the “czar” ban in the 2011 spending package where House Republicans added on language to cut the salaries for four Obama czars, health care, climate change, autos and manufacturing, and urban affairs. As reported at the Politico, Obama says, “he’s not obligated to comply”.
The anti-czar language in the spending bill marked a victory for Republicans and conservative pundits, who accused the administration of giving unelected bureaucrats too much power within the White House. But the language didn’t appear to have any immediate impact on Obama’s staff.
House Republicans attached an amendment to a spending bill that passed the chamber in February to block funding for nine White House policy advisers. Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the author of that amendment, warned at the time against what he called “a very disturbing proliferation of czars” under Obama.
Does it really shock any one that this president would disregard anything that would limit the power of unelected individuals? As if Obama has listenedd to the will of the people and the mood of the country since he has been in office. Because Obamacare was a great example of Obama’s listening to the people.
Carol Browner is out as the Cap & Trade, Climate Change czar. Another one bites the political dust in Obama’s radical czardom. Interesting how some are leaving, especially as stated at Hot Air, after Fred Upton, the new GOP chair of the House Energy and Commerce committee, had suggested that he planned on investigating her authority.
Carol M. Browner, President Barack Obama’s top energy and environmental adviser, plans to leave the White House in the coming weeks, White House officials said Monday night.
Browner, who served as Environmental Protection Agency administrator for all eight years under President Bill Clinton, has emerged as one of the most experienced Washington hands in the current West Wing.
All the President’s Czar’s … maybe not any longer.
House Republicans of the new 112th Congress introduced a bill yesterday that would eliminate Barack Obama’s 39 czars. What a novel concept that “a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President” would have to require Senate confirmation. That goes for any party in office. As stated at Weasel Zippers, elections have consequences.
From The Hill:
A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various “czars” in the Obama administration.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years.
The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration.
The bill defines a czar as “a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President, or similar office established by or at the direction of the President” who is appointed to a position that would otherwise require Senate confirmation.
More Obama ”hope & change”: Bon Jovi edition, Community Solutions Czar?
Barack Obama continues to handle America’s tough problems, appoints Jon Bon Jovi to the White House Council for Community Solutions. Good grief, we really are “Living on a Prayer” these days. Talk about more “Bad Medicine” from Obama. President Obama, “You give Love Leadership a Bad Name.” Barack Obama finally has realized he is nor a “ROCK STAR” so he appoints one instead.
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order establishing the White House Council for Community Solutions, and Bon Jovi appears as one of the individuals appointed to the group.
“The Council will provide advice to the President on the best ways to mobilize citizens, nonprofits, businesses and government to work more effectively together to solve specific community needs,” states the release.
“These impressive men and women have dedicated their lives and careers to civic engagement and social innovation,” said Obama. “I commend them for their outstanding contributions to their communities, and I am confident that they will serve the American people well in their new roles on the White House Council for Community Solutions. I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”
Jon Bon Jovi’s functions will be as follows as outlined by the White House:
1.)” enlisting leaders in the non-profit, private, and philanthropic sectors to make progress on key policy goals”
2.) “providing strategic input and recommendations to help the federal government promote greater innovation and cross-sector collaboration”
3.) “honoring and highlighting those making a significant impact in their own communities”
I might want to remind Jon Bon Jovi of some of the lyrics from one of his past songs before he gets involved with one of the most overreaching and meddling presidential administration in history … “Its My Life”. It is something that Obama and Democrats have forgot long ago … ITS OUR LIFE! So you would think with Bon Jovi’s rise to fame by doing it their way and not listening to the doubts of other, as stated at Michelle Malkin, “Bon Jovi’s first recommendation as Community Solutions Czar will be to get the federal government’s nose out of community issues.”
This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life
Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, hell, don’t back down.
Which leads me to my final request for Obama and his ilk … can you please just “Runaway” … 2012 cannot come fas enough.
The Near Ground Zero Mosque: A Truther? Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s Partner Faiz Khan Signed 9-11 Truth Petition
A TRUTHER IN OUR MIDST … WHY ARE WE NOT SURPRISED BY THIS!
From the Investigative Project on Terrorism comes the following. Make sure to check out the VIDEO’s and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s partner Faiz Khan in his own words calling 9-11 and inside job. Faiz Khan, the long time partner of Rauf and a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks has some major explaining to do.
There is a reason why Americans opposed the building of this mosque and it had nothing to do with the fact that they did not have the right to. The fact of the matter was, the whole situation did not pass the smell test … now the “Truther” comes out.
Faiz Khan, 9-11 Truther
But a trove of videos and writings available on the Internet shows that a longtime partner of Rauf believes the 9/11 terror attacks were “an inside job” by U.S. government and corporate interests, the Investigative Project on Terrorism found.
Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance’s website, he argued that “the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as ‘militant Islam’ although the phenomenon known as ‘militant Islamic networks’ may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role – perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat.”
In speeches, Khan says people in the Third World, where the “sleaze of governance” is more of a given, few people question whether 9/11 was an inside job.
Check out number 52 on the 9-11 Truth.org list
Are we supposed to believe that the so-called moderate Imam Rauf did not know that his partner was a 9-141 truther? What about the US State Department who paid for Rauf to go to the Middle East and speak on behalf of the US? Did they even bother to vet this guy? How about Barack Hussein Obama, how do you feel now Mr. President that your Imam behind the near Ground Zero mosque has a 9-11 truther as a partner? Then again, as the Gateway Pundit reminds us Obama and his folks never cared enough to vet the communist, radical “green” jobs czar Van Jones to find out that he was one either. Ultimately, Van Jones was forced to resign because it was revealed he was a 9-11 truther … not the the MSM ever covered the story until his resignation.
I am sensing a pattern here. Why did the MSM not investigate this? Maybe NYC Mayor Bloomberg will have a change of heart and actually want this entire project now investigated. Investigating mosques un-American, eh Mayor Bloomberg, want to try again?
I guess we are supposed to believe that just like Barack Hussein Obama sitting in the pews for 20 years that he never heard anything hateful come from the mouth of Reverend Wright once again. Where is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his partner Faiz Khan explaining themselves? Hmm? Just how much is America supposed to stomach? Americans are a tolerant people, we are not stupid!
Water Seeks It’s Own Level … Key Obama Ally Richard Trumaka AFL-CIO Chief Works With European Socialists For Global Tax
Remember when Obama said during the 2008 Presidential campaign, ”Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself.”
Well water seeks its own level and this Administration is the most radical ever. As reported at The Blaze, Barack Hussein Obama’s key all Richard Trumaka, AFL-CIO chief, work with European socialists for global tax.
The American people are finally judging Obama after the fact by the people he has surrounded himsl;ef with and his policies. That can explain why his poll numbers have collapsed and Democrats are poised to lose the House and the Senate this 2010 midterm election. This is hardly the “Hope & Change” that America bargained for.
- Dana’s thoughts on the twisted business upon which our newly minted “Safe Schools Czar” built his resume. What on Earth is Kevin Jennings doing as any Obama czar, let alone the “safe schools” czar.
Daily Commentary – Friday, December 18th, 2009 – Fistgate [3:44m]: | Download
Remember when Barack Obama said during the 2008 campaign that you would know more about him by the people he surrounds hinself with … enter “Safe School” czar Kevin Jennings.
If you have not hear of this story on the MSM, go figure. No one had heard of Obama “Green” czar Van Jones until the investigative Internet folks busted the story wide open and forces Jones to resign. Now we are presented with Keven Jennings and his sick exploits. If you are unfamiliar with FISTGATE, here is a sampling from Big Government.com. And there is much more at The Gateway Pundit … “Kevin Jennings’ Suggested Reading For Kids Included Sick Book That Romanticized Rape of a 13 Year-Old – Media Silent.” Other reports can be found HERE on Jennings and his actions that are beyond the pale.
How has this individual not been forced to step down? Safe School czar, ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!
This story defies words …
Once again we are presented with another episode of “All the Presidents’ Czars”. If you have not read this story regarding Kevin Jennings, Obama’s Safe School czar you might want to take a look and read the shocking account brought to us by The Gateway Pundit at Big Government.com.
The head line is … Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar’s 2000 Conference Promoted ‘Fisting’ to 14 Year-Olds … GOOD GRIEF!!!
We cannot even begin to do this post justice by summarizing it, so please go HERE and read what President Obama has appointed as the Safe School czar. UNREAL!!!
He also asked 14 year olds, Spit Or Swallow, Is That Rude’. Is your head spinning yet?
I must have missed the bad joke why this individual was appointed the Safe School czar. Safe from what? Remember when Obama was asked what type of President he would be during the campaign? He said you would know by the people he surrounded himself with. Mmm, mmm, mmm … Barack Hussein Obama.
