Andreas Lubitz Obama…soon the passengers will be screaming


This Stilton Jarlsberg graphic is a provocative “tease”  to his  provocative and insightful essay.  He elaborates on something our illustrious senior editor observed earlier today
“Obama is America’s version of the germanwings co-pilot, buckle up world!”  *  From Jarlsberg’s commentary Crash Position:

Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about the growing threat of ISIS. He locked out anyone who could have interfered with his release of five Taliban terror chiefs in return for one U.S. military deserter.

And of course, Barack Obama has now locked out Congress, the American people, and our allies as he strikes a secret deal with Iran to determine the timeline (not prevention) of their acquisition of nuclear weapons.

There have been a number of similar analogies. Here is one that appeared in American Thinker by Jeannie DeAngelis on March 28: Air Obama is Headed for Tragedy  excerpt:

Over the French Alps, an amateurish pilot managed to seize the controls, then he locked out the qualified, and proceeded to calmly and deliberately ram a plane into the side of a mountain – which, figuratively speaking, is precisely what Captain Obama is attempting to do to America. 

The president has gripped the controls; his breathing is steady and calm.  From the look of things, he appears to be unwavering in his determination to shatter whatever is left of this country’s future.

Regrettably, what’s lacking on America’s doomed flight is the sort of political determination the locked out pilot of the Germanwings Airbus exhibited when he attempted, but failed, to chop through the cockpit door with an ax.

Harry Reid has announced he will not run for reelection

Yes, it’s true. Harry Reid, one-time “Turd” Weight boxer who recently lost by a TKO in a one-round bout with his “exercise machine”, is retiring from the US Senate.

Senator Reid and his powerful booming voice will most certainly be missed.

While Mr. Reid gave the most noble reasons for his retirement at this time, rumors have been circulating that his “exercise machine accident” may really have been a message from

disgruntled Democrats who lost reelection races last fall thanks to Senator Reid’s dogged efforts to support Barack Obama’s dictatorial rule.

Anyway we offer this thumbnail retrospective of good ole Harry even if a little premature.

th-23 th-22 th-26 th-27

th-21th-19 th-18

Not sure if the pictures above reflect a rematch with the exercise machine or not but it does seem to have a good left and right hook. But we do know how he broke his finger — somebody hit him in the nose. We note that not everyone is enthusiastic about his departure. And, fortunately for Harry, he has never had to worry much about an elbow from the right.

Cognitive dissonance

Earlier this week, Dana Perino, White House press secretary for GW Bush was asked by a fellow member of Fox’s “The Five” if she could explain how Obama administration spokespeople could make such absurd pronouncements as Josh Earnest’s affirmation of Yemen as one of the really great foreign policy and national successes in the war on (Islamist) terrorism and Jen Psaki’s vigorous defense of Obama’s “No deserter left behind” policy.

Ms. Perino was sympathetic, it seems, to the plight of those poor spokespeople; “it’s their job to reflect the president’s views whether they agree or not” was the gist of her remarks.

Uh, well, I think we can all see that point. But, it occurs to us that if one can say that stuff with a straight face (though often with a befuddled look), who can they hang out with when they get off work? Who can sympathize with their efforts to be “convincing” while saying such obviously inaccurate, fundamentally goofy stuff? Who would respect these two who are apparently so desperate for a job that they are willing to stand before the world every day and make a complete fool of themselves?

And then we thought, we know of people who would not only admire Jen and Josh, but would also be gullible enough to believe their drivel and even try to pass it on to others.

Some of them comment here.   Look it up.

    yeah, make a foolish joke of the tragedy..use it as another spitball at the President. the hate and sickening bias here knows no bounds. see you Election nite.

  2. Gus says:

    Of course there will always be some guy on the plane who will look out the window and say, “Oh looky, the pilot is going lower so we can see the mountain better”.

    And “folks” like that vote…Democrat.

  3. Gus says:

    They know who they are.

  4. phil silverman says:

    folks like that vote for folks who want to retain medicare, to ensure insurers do not deny coverage to Cancer patients for $$$$$ reasons, stay away from 500,000 ground troops sent to hoaxed wars, 10,000 miles away; who want to retain voting and civil rights; not filibuster away blue collar job development bills. >>>by the way, a very, very perverse & sickening take on the airplane tragedy.

  5. Gus says:

    Just keep looking at the pretty mountain.

  6. Gus says:

    …and,remember, your “pilot”is the only one with a parachute. And he has a golf date.

  7. phil silverman says:

    GUS, your comments are disgusting and disgraceful. a mockery of the tragedy. and a hateful, stupid comment on the President . obviously cutting unemploy. & the deficit in half w no help from the John Bircher, neo Confederates on the Hill means nothing to you. telling insurers to quit denying coverage to precondition Cancer patients is a joke and restoring the auto industry is funny, too. shame on you. vote for Cruz so we can start two new ground wars and end Medicare.

  8. Gus says:


    If feigned outrage, fevered rhetoric and sorely misinformed opinion were legal tender you could pay off the $18 trillion national debt all by “your lonesome”…and have enough left over to buy Hillary a new email server.
    Just keep looking at the pretty mountain because your pilot will soon leave the cockpit and he’ll take his golf clubs with him.

  9. phil silverman says:

    I don’t dig “feigned” at all. You would never say that to my face, would ya?, so the keyboard gets a poundin’ 🙂 Always the ad hominem when facts and figures R not ageeable, eh? now to your diversion to 18 trillion > Obama started w 10.6 and has had to pay off the 2 unfunded wars, W’s extravagant pharma., his 10 yr. tax relief for the rich prog. ALL GOING TO THE DEBT along with the INTEREST ON THE DEBT ALSO GOING TO THE DEBT. golf clubs? hehehe. what President has ever golfed? W never did. > your flippant comments with the airline tragedy are very disgusting. so…vote for CRuz and end Medicare, send Soc. Sec. to Wall Street, go back to over deregulation which gave us the ’08 and ’87 crashes. Fine.

  10. Gus says:

    Phil, this is the second time you’ve made reference to your “face”. Nothing I write here I would not say “to your face”. So you can stop with the “threats”. If you are unable to tolerate the give and take on this site I think you know your choice if it gets too hot in the kitchen. Put on your big boy pants and try to keep up with the dialogue. While I can honestly say I haven’t learned a great deal from your comments, they do tend to confirm the limited sources for your knowledge base. Stay with us and somehow you may absorb some factual information that will serve you in a poisitive way.

  11. phil silverman says:

    my big boy pants are on all the time…and sorry YOU take it personally when I say YOU are getting personal and would never insult me to my face. my knowledge base has done ok, in the media, and as an Employer Advocate at the State level. why not try to inject some facts, figures, details in your posts and leave out the insults? you haven’t learned facts abut Obama’s verifiable good numbers in spite of your party’s unprecedented blue collar job development obstruction plan.
