Address to Joint Session of Congress
Tuesday, February 24th, 2009
[Quoted out of context to expose the most egregious deceptions.Click link above to read the entire speech.]
The weight of this crisis will not determine the destiny of this nation. The answers to our problems don’t lie beyond our reach. They exist in our laboratories and universities; in our fields and our factories; in the imaginations of our entrepreneurs and the pride of the hardest-working people on Earth.
The Liar in Chief depends upon public ignorance of the basic laws of economics. Solutions are not to be found in laboratories, universities, fields or factories. The problem is a set of imbalances resulting from a combination of speculative greed acting in ignorance and bad public policy flowing from well greased palms.
There must be a balance between production and consumption. Unproductive activities can not long produce legitimate income, profits or wealth. It is not possible to maintain a national economy on real estate value appreciation any more than it can be maintained by stock market appreciation. What goes up will go down, then there is a game of musical chairs with many losers.
We need balance between production and consumption tested by free markets. When the government interferes by force of law, disaster will surely follow in due time.
I say this not to lay blame or look backwards, but because it is only by understanding how we arrived at this moment that we’ll be able to lift ourselves out of this predicament.We got into this rut by unrealistic expectations:
- More for less forever more.
- Quick riches through speculation.
- Failure to understand how markets function.
- Government interference in market functions.
Anyone whose head is not up his anal orifice could see that real estate prices would not escalate forever. The principle is the same as that behind the stock market crash of 1929: speculating on margin. The home equity loan industry played a role in this process, as did lawyers, accountants and real estate brokers. Then the music stopped.
Rapid escalation in the price of motor fuel played an important role in the crash. It resulted from failure to challenge OPEC 30 years ago. It also resulted partly from idiotic regulations which put vast resources off limits. The solution to this problem was in 1979 and 1995, not 2009. Damn Fools you are who voted for Liberals!!
The fact is, our economy did not fall into decline overnight. Nor did all of our problems begin when the housing market collapsed or the stock market sank. We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy. Yet we import more oil today than ever before. The cost of health care eats up more and more of our savings each year, yet we keep delaying reform. Our children will compete for jobs in a global economy that too many of our schools do not prepare them for. And though all these challenges went unsolved, we still managed to spend more money and pile up more debt, both as individuals and through our government, than ever before.The economy fell into decline because your party greased the skids 40 years ago and continuously since then. Fiscal chicanery, ballooning inflation, stagflation; all of those were warning sides which Democrats disregarded. Republicans abandoned their principles and went along to get along. Everyones income is someone else's expense. Everyone's expense is someone else's income. Cost plus is like an eye for an eye.
You knew we needed to find more oil. Instead, you put the off shore resources off limits and blocked development of many resources inland. With one hand you signal for windmill farms, with the other, you wave "not in my back yard". You can't have it both ways. There is and will be no economical substitute for liquid hydrocarbon fuels. There is no magic wand. Harry Potter is fictional.
The cost of health care escalates because of demand which results from third party payor plans. Complex new drugs, treatments and diagnostic tools add to costs. The tort industry, which finances Democrat campaigns, is a major player in escalating medical costs. Frauds which exploit Medicare and Medicaid also play an important role. If you want more doctors and nurses, you must offer wages sufficient to attract and retain them. There go the costs again. This problem is insoluble, and you should quit lying and confess the truth. There is no free lunch, and in the long run, no free hospitals. The escalating cost of energy also contributes to this problem, just as the costs of litigation do.
Schools don't prepare children for jobs, they prepare them for training. Children fail primarily because they have priorities other than learning. There is nothing more important to education than motivation. Without it, the best facilities, curricula and teachers are wasted.
The problems went unsolved because the 'solutions' your party proposed were part of the problem, not solutions. Bipartisan means both parties sharing the work of throwing our money to the winds and the waiting hands of their special interest partners.
In other words, we have lived through an era where too often, short-term gains were prized over long-term prosperity; where we failed to look beyond the next payment, the next quarter, or the next election.That is a true statement. The most effective con men mix a blend of fact and fiction; that is how President Obama got elected.
A surplus became an excuse to transfer wealth to the wealthy instead of an opportunity to invest in our future.There is the fiction. There was no such transfer on Shrub's part. President Obama is playing the class warfare card. Neither was there a genuine surplus. There is no such thing as investing in our future. Liberals always promise gold and deliver turd. Their idea of investment is lining the pockets of their special interest sponsors who finance their campaigns. Consumption is not investment. Investment is spent on capital goods used to produce products. Investment is done on a cost/benefit analysis basis, not on soaring, meaningless rhetoric.
Cabinet as well as mayors and governors across the country that they will be held accountable by me and the American people for every dollar they spend.The feces just keeps flowing. Zero of 535 legislators read the stimulus plan, it was railroaded through so rapidly that they did not have time to red it. That is wasting, not investing.
The concern is that if we do not re-start lending in this country, our recovery will be choked off before it even begins.
You see, the flow of credit is the lifeblood of our economy. The ability to get a loan is how you finance the purchase of everything from a home to a car to a college education; how stores stock their shelves, farms buy equipment, and businesses make payroll.
Investment require surplus You can not save or invest when inflation causes your entire paycheck to be spent before you receive the next check. Banks can't lend when their deposits are exceeded by their liabilities. Your party's energy policies facilitated the rapid unchecked inflation of fuel prices which drained the surplus from the economy and sent much of it to our enemies. Without surplus and profit there is no operating capital. They can not invest what you confiscate with taxes.
The first necessity is to accurately identify the enemy and our tactical & strategic objectives. If you want Afghanistan and Iraq to be free, democratic, prosperous and stable states; not state sponsors of terrorism, then you'd better start converting their populations from Islam, because while they remain Muslim your strategic objectives are impossible. As soon as our forces come home, Afghanistan and Iraq will revert to status quo ante: internal warfare and external terrorism.
We are now carefully reviewing our policies in both wars, and I will soon announce a way forward in Iraq that leaves Iraq to its people and responsibly ends this war.
And with our friends and allies, we will forge a new and comprehensive strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan to defeat al Qaeda and combat extremism. Because I will not allow terrorists to plot against the American people from safe havens half a world away.What will you do? Will you convert them to Christianity or kill them all? Those are your alternatives; make a choice and stick to it. Islam is permanent war. Two Surahs declare it, with the most egregious statements being 8:39 & 9:29.. Islamic law requires a minimum of one military attack against disbelievers in every year. This quote from Al-Shafi'i makes it abundantly clear.
"The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organized a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims' interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse." He said: "If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said."Islam's founder told us how long Jihad will continue.
"...jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal . ...Where there is Islam, there will be terrorism because Islam and terrorism are one. Got a clue yet?
8:12. ..."I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."Got a clue yet? If not, then you should remove yourself from the gene pool.
33:26. ...Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
- 8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war
- that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah
- to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God
- to threaten the enemy of Allah
- to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah
- whereby you may frighten the enemy of ALLAH
- that you may frighten the enemies of GOD
- to terrify thereby the enemy of God
- to make the enemies of God, and your enemies, and others beside them, in dread thereof.
- whereby ye may strike terror into the enemy of God
- whereby ye may strike a terror into the enemy of God
That is why I have ordered the closing of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, and will seek swift and certain justice for captured terrorists – because living our values doesn’t make us weaker, it makes us safer and it makes us stronger.Swift and certain justice? How is that accomplished by delaying their trials? How is that accomplished by turning them loose to kill more of our soldiers? If you want to do justice, kill them on the battlefield; take no prisoners. Once is enough!
We cannot shun the negotiating table, nor ignore the foes or forces that could do us harm. We are instead called to move forward with the sense of confidence and candor that serious times demand.What is there to negotiate with a foe who is Hellbent on killing or enslaving you? Peace and security can only be obtained by making Islam extinct. Cause Muslims to apostatize or usher them into Hell. Your choice; which will it be. That is candor, Mr. President. All else is deception.
To seek progress toward a secure and lasting peace between Israel and her neighbors, we have appointed an envoy to sustain our effort.Peace can only be obtained by eliminating Islam. There is no other way. No appeasement, no good will gesture, no ceding of land, no concession will bring peace from a foe Hellbent on genocide & policide. You have no clue because you have not read the Charter of Hamas. Islam and Hamas are one. Read the charter and the Qur'an. What's the difference? Get a clue!

Narrated Ibn Hawalah:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah's chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.
Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
...In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world. ... Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews
