Delusion Runs (Pathologically) Deep, And Eyes Wide Open Now *Open Thread*

by

Update at the end of the post.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is still at it, making comments that are blatantly, patently, demonstratively, false. Kinda makes sense to me now why marijuana is such a big thing in the liberal states. That’s the only way they can possibly swallow this BS. And, who knows, maybe that explains why the Speaker can make such idiotically stupid remarks like he did about our BORDERS.

Yes, Harry Reid is trying to convince us that our Southern borders are SECURE:

[…] “The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” (Click here to read the rest.)

Seriously, he must be smoking SOMETHING to come out with this doozy. Holy smokes (!).

No wonder Charles Krauthammer made this comment about Reid’s claim, from The Daily Caller:

[…] “You’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not.”

Krauthammer didn’t stop there.

“I mean that’s so detached from reality,” he declared. “How many [children] do we have now? 60,000 at least? And we’re completely helpless. And it’s the helplessness that I think is driving the president and the Democrats to accept” changing the law. (Click here to read the rest.)

Uh, yeah – no kidding. Either he’s off his medication, or he’s self medicating with some Hopium or something, because this is just insanity on Reid’s part. In my humble opinion, that is.

And Reid must be spending some time with White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest. How else to explain this claim by Earnest about the effect of Obama’s Foreign Policies:

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday the Obama administration’s foreign policies in a number of areas have enhanced the world’s “tranquility” – a word that raised eyebrows as reporters pointed to situations in Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Ukraine and the South China Sea.

More than one reporter during Monday’s press briefing referred to a front-page Wall Street Journal article highlighting some of those crises, and citing security strategists as saying “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s.”

“How does the White House react to the notion that the president is a bystander to all these crises?” asked Fox News’ Ed Henry, citing the widening gaps between the sides in the Iranian nuclear talks, the conflict in and around Gaza, and the Syrian civil war.

“I think that there have been a number of situations in which you’ve seen this administration intervene in a meaningful way, that has substantially furthered American interests and substantially improved the, uh, you know, the – the tranquility of the global community
,” Earnest replied (Emphasis mine). […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Oh, sorry – I should have warned you ahead of time not to be drinking or eating anything when you read that.

Can you BELIEVE he picked THAT word, “tranquility,” out of all the words available to him?? What would have been more accurate would be words like: disastrous; incomprehensible; poor; destructive; lame; absurd, and a host of others. “Tranquil” is absolutely the last one I would choose to describe Obama’s Foreign policies. WOW.

Yep, I think Earnest and Reid must be spending a whole lot of time together.

One person who has finally seen the light, though, is a woman may of us were dumbfounded by back in 2008. I know I wrote extensively about her claims of all that Obama would do for her. Not only was I shocked that she would believe such drivel, but the realization that SOMEONE was telling people that Obama would actually do all that she thought he would do. And that would be the woman who believed Obama would pay for her gas and her mortgage:

Who, WHO, was telling people this crap?? Someone. But like a few others, even some Democrats in Congress who are unhappy with the current border issue, this woman has finally put down the Hopium pipe and cleared her head. From BizPacReview.com:

[…] Well, six years later, filmmaker Joel Gilbert tracked down the woman, Peggy Joseph, who has had a complete change of heart.

“He lied about everything,” she said of now President Obama.

Gilbert asked Joseph if Obama helped pay the expenses she spoke of in the video clip.

“Absolutely not,” she replied. “Mortgage got worse and gas prices got higher.”

“During that time, we needed a change but not change for the worse,” Joseph explained. “He had a very big voice, just like the Wizard of Oz; the wizard was this little teeny, teeny tiny man and I think that is the same thing with Obama.”

“Not who we thought, or expected him to be,” she concluded. […] (Click here to read the rest, including more about Joseph, and about Gilbert’s latest film).

Why, yes, yes Obama did lie about everything, or just about everything. He IS bringing change to the country, just not the kind of change we need or want. The Southern border is a case in point of that “change.” Or negotiating with terrorists and hailing a deserter as the Prodigal Son (for all intents and purposes. Don’t even get me started on Bergdahl and the BS people like the Pentagon Press Secretary, Rear Admiral Kirby, was spewing about why Bergdahl is able to move about freely. These people seem to act like the Pentagon did not find ALREADY that Bergdahl was a DESERTER at best. So, yeah – his rear should be LOCKED UP not able to return to a desk. GOOD GRIEF.).

Yes, delusion seems to be in evidence in large measure in Washington, DC. At least some folks around the country are finally seeing the light. I guess that’s better than nothing.

What do you think? What other stories are getting your attention? Feel free to share!

UPDATE: Oh, this is rich. I happened to catch this exchange with Fox News reporter, Ed Henry, and White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, on “The Five” today. The exchange was all about the current state of our border. This would be funny if…Yeah. It pretty much makes your head spin. From Real Clear Politics:

ED HENRY, FNC: Is the border today secure?

JOSH EARNEST, WH: The issue we’re seeing today at the border…

HENRY: Is the border secure?

EARNEST: Well, I will tell you there are more resources that are dedicated to this border right now, and securing it, than there ever have been. The issue that we’re seeing right now is not individuals attempting to evade detection by Border Patrol, what we’re seeing right now are people coming to the border and turning themselves over to Border Patrol.

HENRY: Republicans keep saying secure the border first then we’ll deal with comprehensive. Sen. Reid said, put the Majority Leader’s office right behind him, said the border is secure. Do you agree with that?

EARNEST: The administration under the president’s leadership has dedicated significant resources to securing the border. Here’s what I would say to those Republicans who are concerned about border security. There is an historic investment in border security resources included in the bipartisan bill passed by the Senate. So those in the House who are concerned about border security should be the champions of common-sense immigration reform. So it is hard to take seriously the concerns of those who say the border is not secure while blocking a piece of legislation that’s already passed the Senate that would actually invest in securing the border. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Oh, my. Well, Earnest is simply incapable of just giving a straight answer, that’s for sure. I can answer this question for him, though: NO.

And there you have it.

    When Obie said he was going to fundamentally transform America, he wasn’t lying. He’s done exactly what he set out to do. People like Peggy Joseph, who wanted all the handouts and entitlements she thought Obie was going to give her, helped him to accomplish his goal. She wanted someone else to give her everything she’s too damn lazy to work for herself so she voted for the man she thought would do that. How’s that workin’ for ya, Peg? Perhaps if people had actually looked into Obie’s background, if they’d seen that he, too, is a lazy lying narcissist (which was apparent to so many of us from the get go), they might have thought twice about voting for him. But I doubt it. Peg’s just upset because she didn’t get all the freebies she thought she would. She’s still a lazy drain on society. She could care less that the world is falling apart; she’s a female Obie, it’s all about her. She’s right about one thing, though. Obie IS just like the Wizard of Oz; he’s a teeny tiny man.

    As for stories getting my attention? Well, you already know about them, Amy:

    1) There’s this, which we’ll be seeing more of as illegal criminals are given “permisos” – http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/07/16/Exclusive-Released-Alien-from-Border-Crisis-Arrested-For-Alleged-Murder-Kidnapping-in-Texas

    2) Jon Stewart apparently is still drinking the progressive kool-aid – http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2014/07/16/jon-stewart-hillary-clinton-daily-show

    3) I can’t help but be afraid for my own little munchkins catching one of any number of diseases being brought into the country – http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/15/Report-Sick-Illegals-Allowed-to-Remain-in-US

    4) Maybe the Pop should invite them all to live in the Vatican? – http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/15/Pope-Welcome-Them

    5) And then there’s the ongoing saga of the “Affordable” Care Act – http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2014/07/16/Obamacare-Hits-New-Yorkers-with-22-Premium-Hike

    Well, I could go on and on and on, but…

      Great comment – and sorry it took a while to get in. It had been put in “moderation” because it had more than three links. Sorry abt that!

      And yeah, I think more and more people are realizing who Obama really is, and that all the promises made to them by Obama’s henchpeople were a bunch of lies. SOMEONE was telling people these things, and on a pretty wide scale. I hate to say it, but the Davids, Plouffe and Axelrod, did a MASTERFUL job of selling this inept, inexperienced, unqualified hack to the country, primarily on race and lies. They lied abt both to get Obama the win, but someone started all of this crap abt the freebies via Obama, and it worked.

      Heck, still, there are ads that pop up saying Obama is going to help with mortgages. It is a pervasive lie, one among many abt The One.

      Yes, all good stories. It is disturbing indeed that this non-profit is all too willing to put illegal aliens into a resort when we have homeless veterans in this country, but there you go.

      People have no idea how bad Obamacare is going to be for them. When Bob Beckel was gloating this week abt how GREAT it is, I was thoroughly disgusted. I know for a fact our ins. has skyrocketed, and it will be skyrocketing again at the end of this year. All thanks to Obamacare, but hey – I have mandated birth control now, even though I cannot POSSIBLY get pregnant even if I wanted to do so, among other requirements I didn’t want. Thanks, Democrats…

      And thanks for the comment!

      • GinaR Says:

        Oh, dang, I forgot about the “more than 3 links” rule. Bad Gina, bad….just so much to rant about, ya know??

        And I guarantee you, Bob Beckel has top of the line insurance and doesn’t need to worry about premiums. And when he says he couldn’t get insurance before Obamacare because of his medical history, I think that’s a flat out lie. You can buy anything with enough money and money he’s got.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Oh, no kidding – please. He acts like Obamacare is the best thing since sliced bread, and that even though people lost their plans, they are able to now have more expensive plans that cover stuff they don’t need – how wonderful is THAT?!?! Ugh…
