While Muslims were setting fire to Barack Hussein Obama's image in the streets of Tehran yesterday, Obama vowed to make a new start with the Muslim world in his inauguration address.
"To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect," he said.
Yesterday, a wave of hysteria swept this Nation like nothing we've seen in recent history. Hundreds of thousands danced in the streets and exulted in the Messiah's rise to power. And as always happens when a narcissistic ruler rises to power, his people totally ignored his words, his actions and the plethora of warning signs.
But the Daily Mail's Melanie Phillips raised a cautious eyebrow to the Obama hysteria in America:
The very reason that so many in the west are so entranced by Obama is thus the very reason why our enemies are today rubbing their hands in satisfaction.
Obama stands for 'soft power' - the replacement of military action in defense of his nation by talking, negotiation and compromise. But with people who have non-negotiable and unconscionable agendas - such as Iran’s genocidal intention to wipe Israel off the map and destroy the west - such an approach merely plays into their hands while catastrophically undermining more moderate regimes and allies.

Amid all the hate mail I received in my inbox yesterday, one loyal reader, Millie Smith, emailed to inform me that the young lady whispering into Barack Obama's ear in my earlier post on presidential jump-offs, is apparently an Obama employee and close friend.
Her name is Desiree Rogers and she was appointed the position of party planner for the Obama administration. Her exact job title is: White House Social Secretary/ Special Assistant to the President.
I hollered when I read the last sentence in Millie's email. She wrote: "Sorry she's not the President's jump off...."
And just how would Millie know that?
I'm sure one of Clinton's friends said the same thing about Monica Lewinsky after the whispers started -- and we know how that story ended.
I mean, let's get real here:
Look at Desiree...
Now look at Michelle Obama...
Now look at Desiree again...
I mean, it's a no-brainer. Well, maybe "brainer" wasn't the proper choice of wording....
As I've said many times in the past, as long as a man is living and breathing -- and I might add, able to stand upright -- he's fair game for a shrewd, social climbing jump-off.
The race is on to see who will capture the title of "First Jump-off." My money is on Desiree since she's already got the inside track.
Even blogger Sister Toldjaagrees with me, and she and I rarely see eye to eye on anything concerning men.
Beyonce sang "At Last" for Barack Obama as he and Michelle danced his first dance as POTUS. I have to hand it to Beyonce, even though she lip synced the entire song, she did a great job. She realized she wasn't the center of attention and didn't try to show up the first couple.
Thanks to loyal reader Evelyn for the video link since I missed it.
This is from a loyal reader who happens to be a blood relative of Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. It's regarding that pregnancy rumor of unknown origins. By the way, this relative is now the newest member of our Exclusive community!
...On another note, Tiny is NOT pregnant, despite the rumor that she's four months. I wish I knew who was spreading that junk. Anyway, ________ said to say she said it, in case you need to know. I know YOU like to report the truth! Thanks....
"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen'..."
-- Rev. Joseph Lowery giving the Benediction.
"I do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of President to the United States faithfully ..."
Now that Barack Hussein Obama has been sworn in as America's first half black president (that we know of) -- his biggest problem will not be the Taliban or even Bin Laden -- it will be the groupies.
The moment Obama was sworn in as HNIC, he became the number 1 mission of jump-offs and groupies everywhere.
Scoff if you will, but remember it was a jump-off who brought down the Clinton administration. Just like Adam and Clinton before him, no man is infallible -- especially when tempted. Democrats in office seem to be more prone to that sort of thing than Republicans.
It will be very difficult for a narcissistic, egocentric man like Barack H. Obama to resist the tempting wiles of a determined jump-off on a mission. And trust that they will try him.
As I wrote before, the D.C. jump offs are an entirely different breed from your run of the mill jump offs in Chicago.
For those who say Obama would never cheat on Michelle -- pardon me while I laugh!
Michelle is still very much attractive, but she's certainly no match for her more experienced and much younger adversaries in DC.
The question is not will Obama cheat on Michelle, the question is will she leave him when she finds out he cheated or will she stick by her man like ol' Hillary did?
I found this on Sean Hannity's forum. It's from an employer who's instructing other employers how to lay off Obama bots legally:
I want to take this time to advise you on how you should approach work layoffs in your place of work when you are the person who must choose the layoff targets. I own a small business of 36 employees. Before the 2008 Presidential election I had 47 employees but due to economic downturns I had to let 11 people go. As of tomorrow Friday 1/16/09 I am letting 3 more people go. There are normal criteria that many businesses will use to determine targets of layoffs. Generally speaking it is very bad to have….
HR problems in your employment history
Low performance ratings
After using these criteria to narrow your layoff candidate list down I would urge you to consider laying off the avid Obama supporters. Not everyone wears their politics on their sleeve at work but some do. Let them discuss the “Hope and Change” that Obama offers them at the unemployment line. Their votes helped bring about the economic mess and socialist programs that all of the taxpayers will have to burden. Let them pay the price of their job. The 3 employees of mine that will get their pink slips tomorrow afternoon are avid Obama supporters. They can watch his inauguration speech uninhibited by employment requirements. I encourage you to adopt the same policy for this countries sake.
Below is a letter to the Boston Globe from an Obama supporter. The red flags are glaring. As Obama leads this country into ruin, don't say you weren't warned:
TIMOTHY GEITHNER, President-elect Obama’s nominee for Treasury secretary, did not pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for four years, despite having been instructed in a handbook by his employer, the International Monetary Fund, on how to pay his self-employment taxes. And the Obama transition team knew of this when it nominated Geithner in November (”Treasury pick failed to pay taxes,” Jan. 14).
We have a financial system meltdown, and Obama decides to put someone who failed to pay his taxes in charge of the cleanup - and in charge of oversight of the IRS!
Most self-employed people, such as I, pay hefty Social Security taxes quarterly. To appoint Geithner would send a message that it’s OK not to pay these taxes - that is, unless you get caught.
There are many qualified men and women of integrity in our country who can serve as Treasury secretary. I voted for Obama, and wish him success, but I cannot agree with his decision to nominate Geithner. (link)
I'll be glad when this Inauguration thing is over with. It's very difficult to get good gossip when everyone's out of town. Anyway, Raven-Symone was spotted strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue in a full length Minx coat. Last week, Raven made a statement to People magazine about enduring criticism about her weight. "People come up to me and have certain words for me, but you know what I do? I say, ‘I’m healthy, I exercise, I believe in myself, and I think I’m beautiful'." Raven told People her mom is her confidence booster: "She’ll [my mom] call me and say, ‘You’re very pretty.’ I’m like, ‘Thanks, Mommy!’ and that’s my confidence for the day."
Personally I think Raven-Symone is absolutely gorgeous, but that's just me I guess. Photos: Splash News Online
New Warner Bros Recordings and S-Line Entertainment's artist Ms. Brown filmed a music video for her single "Wonderland" in a parking deck on Luckie Street over the weekend. That's DJ Don Cannon on the drums behind her. This singer has gone through so many name changes and style changes, it's really hard to keep up. I see that WBR has settled on a look for their new artist that everyone should be familiar with. Her individual style has been replaced and now she looks like every other chick on her grind in the music industry. One word: Santogold. Good luck with that Ms. B! Photos by ExclusiveAccess.net
