Obama is not a black man or a unicorn

BRACE YOURSELF for blasphemy! Barry Obama is not a black man. Nor is he a unicorn, a fairy or Bigfoot.

But everybody knows that Obama is a black man, that he was America’s first black president. Just one problem: He is not. It’s a myth like fairies, unicorns, Bigfoot and trolls who lurk beneath stone bridges.

momBarry’s been out of office now for almost a year, and people are still referring to him as a black man. That’s his mama in the mug shot. Does she look like a soul sistah to you?

Faux black woman Rachel Dolezal and faux Navajo Liz Warren would probably say yes, but they are not trustworthy. They are trolls. The left loves to fool you. Dolezal is not black. Warren is not an Indian. Obama was not America’s first black president. And most of the news media are not honest.

Barry’s mom was a white gal, 100% honkie, who wielded her “white privilege” back in the day. So if that’s Barry’s mama, how can he be black? Answer: He isn’t. He is biracial or, to use an out-of-style word, mulatto.*

unicornEver since Obama won his first presidential election, and everyone was crowing about his being the first black president, I have been pointing out the error at every opportunity. Barry is not black. He’s biracial, absolutely, demonstrably no more black than white.

He is not a unicorn either.

One wonders: What’s wrong with calling a spade a spade? (Sorry, but that was too big a target to pass up.) What’s wrong with being America’s first biracial president? Doesn’t that also demonstrate the nation’s progress?

fairyThe myth that Obama is black is so incredibly pervasive that even intelligent conservatives say he’s black. Everyone says he’s black.

But he’s not. And there’s nothing shameful about being biracial. It’s amazing how rampant myths can become. Even Barry says he’s black.

Hasn’t he taken a good look at his mama?

(Note 1: What prompted this now that Barry’s out of office? A post by a blogger I keep up with. She repeated the myth this week even though I corrected her about a year ago. Myths die hard, especially when you really, really want to believe in fairies, unicorns and that Barry is black.)

(Note 2: Back in 2012, Americans had a shot at nominating an actual black guy for president. I would have voted for him in a flash. Of course, leftists say he’s not really black due to his being conservative. Fairies! Unicorns!)

Trump’s da man!

(The following is an editorial from the Investor’s Business Daily. For an even more detailed list of President Trump’s many accomplishments, go here.)

AFTER WEEKS and months of fixating on tweets and Russia, someone in the press decided to have a look at what the Trump administration has been up to since January. Lo and behold, they discovered that it’s getting a lot done.

serveimage“Trump Has Quietly Accomplished More Than It Appears,” reads the headline in the Atlantic.

“With the Trump administration’s chaos sucking up all the attention,” the article begins, “it’s been able to move forward on a range of its priorities … It is remaking the justice system, rewriting environmental rules, overhauling public-lands administration, and greenlighting major infrastructure projects. It is appointing figures who will guarantee the triumph of its ideological vision for decades to come.”

It goes on to detail these achievements, many of which we’ve highlighted on these pages.

Border crossings, for example, have plummeted, even though all Trump has done so far is promise to enforce existing laws.

The Supreme Court approved parts of Trump’s travel ban, a success made possible by Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the bench.

Trump is busy filling lower court positions with conservative justices. Ron Klain, a White House aide to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said that Trump “is proving wildly successful in one respect: naming youthful conservative nominees to the federal bench in record-setting numbers.”

What else? Well, Trump pulled out of the Paris climate change deal, which as we noted in this space is a yuuuge win for the economy.

The EPA, meanwhile, is dismantling Obama’s coal-killing, growth-choking Clean Power Plan, and draining the heavy-handed Waters of the United States rule. When a veteran EPA official resigned this week, she complained in a letter to her former colleagues that “the new EPA Administrator already has repeals of 30 rules under consideration,” which the New York Times described as “a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency’s 47-year history.”

Trump promised to kill two regulations for every new one enacted, but in his first six months the ratio was 16-to-1.

Trump also approved the Keystone XL and other pipeline projects held up by Obama. He’s also rolled back a ban on coal mining on public lands.

To be sure, Trump hasn’t scored a major legislative achievement on signature issues like ObamaCare and tax reform.

The Atlantic writer describes the administration’s achievements as something akin to a shadow government. But these actions aren’t in the shadows. They’re just being ignored by a media that is obsessed with digging up dirt on Trump.

Gone, not forgotten

AS LEFTISTS continue to swoon, roll their eyeballs and riot in the streets over the presidency of Donald Trump, let us pause and gaze back at the Barry Obama years.

A tip of the sombrero to The Beltway Times for bringing this video to my attention.

Wall foolishness

0515-us-mexico-border-fence_full_600
Note to Americans: There’s already lots of wall.

PRESIDENT TRUMP came out of the gate like gangbusters during his first week in office. Kudos to  him!

He restrained the ham-fisted leftists running the Environmental Protection Agency.  He cut off federal aid to law-flaunting leftists running Sanctuary Cities.

He canceled the cash that left-wing Barry had funneled in his waning White House days to Palestinian terrorists.

He revived the Keystone Pipeline. He canceled the horrendous Catch-and-Release policy for illegals.

And Trump declared Israel great again, reversing Barry’s leftist, anti-Semitic tomfoolery.

But there’s one very dumb thing my boy Donald is doing: this business about Mexico paying for a border wall.

Did Israel demand that Mohammedans pay for the walls it’s erected? Lots of good it would have done.

Do you expect your next-door neighbor to buy the deadbolt for your house’s front door?

Nations who want to secure their borders, and all nations should, especially successful ones, must finance their border walls themselves.

That Mexico would pay for the wall was a good campaign slogan, appealing to low-information voters. But the campaign is over. Extend the wall, but don’t expect Mexico to pay for it, and don’t force it via other means.

Keeping your house locked is your own responsibility.

And Mexico should build a wall on its southern border. Don’t expect Guatemala to pay for it.
