Granholm: Obama “Protector in Chief”

2013 January 21
by bc3b

Today (actually yesterday) on ABC’s This Week, after Rick Santorum explained that Americans are protective of their right to buy guns because they “want to feel safe,” former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm offered a reassuring sentiment: Americans needn’t worry about protecting themselves, because they have President Obama, and “he sees himself as protector-in-chief.”

Granholm explained that she sees Obama as also applying this philosophy of president-as-palladium to foreign policy — perhaps a more sensible concept.

Like most liberals, Jennifer Granholm sees government as the solution to all our problems. Speaking of problems, Granholm sure created a bunch when she single-handedly drove Michigan to the brink of bankruptcy. Granholm is now in Kalifornia and, under Republican leadership, Michigan has a budget surplus.

The “Protector-in-Chief” isn’t doing such a great job protecting people in his home town of Chicago, is he?

    Read the first comment. It appears that the gun owners in NY are preparing for civil disobedience to defy Cuomo’s new gun law.

    “France, seeking fresh ways to raise funds and frustrated that American technology companies that dominate its digital economy are largely beyond the reach of French fiscal authorities, has proposed a new levy: an Internet tax on the collection of personal data. The idea surfaced Friday in a report commissioned by President François Hollande, which described various measures his government was taking to address what the French see as tax avoidance by Internet companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook” -NYT

    Great article. Will have to get a copy of the book to read. Especially for my wife.

    Unfortunately I am afraid science will long before we get to Heinlein moon world will have created the unter menschen. Why should a dictator always look over his/her shoulder when they can have a willing bevy of clone slaves at their beck and call? You get the courts to declare unter menschen as not having rights. You then by some other means, dispensed thru the water system, make the current citizens sterile. Then just sit back and wait. 30,40 years the only thing left are the dictator intelligensia and the mindless clones. Scares me.

    Kinda Blade Runner in reverse.

    The `final solution` to Japan’s demographic woes — — So much for the vaunted oriental meme of reverence for one’s elders. $$ trumps all.

    Thank God we have Obamacare! /snark

    Japan’s population has aged so much (and families have so few children) that adult diapers now outsell children’s diapers:

    Perhaps Japanese companies should give retirees a set af hari kari knives in place of the traditional gold watch.

    Again, what is at issue with the 2nd Amendment is not my “right to own guns” but my right to self-defense….

    Yeah, we need to be able to defend our rights (life, liberty, and property) against common criminals but primarily we need to defend ourselves against the BIGGEST CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION ever know to mankind: the State!

    We need our guns to protect ourselves from tyranny plain and simple….the founders did not include a 2nd amendment so you could “hunt” or “defend yourself from crime”….these are liberal diversions to waterdown your inherent right to self-defense and your right to ABOLISH the government when it becomes abusive to your rights

    As far as I am concerned, the government (aka cops and military) should not be allowed to own any weapon that the citizens arent allowed to own – after all, the people in the government dont suddenly become moral superior to the rest of us once they don the magic clown-suits of official thuggery!

    If “common citizens” arent compentent to own certain types of weapons then neither are the government agents!

    So if we allow the armed goons of the the Statist political masters to have “assualt weapons” (semi or fully automatic) or any other weaponry then all citizen have a right to have the same thing!

    We should not have those who have to follow the law (common people) and masters (government types and politicans) who are above the law

    #19 Yeah, I am sure it will be “glowing” as soon as the police state tracks down my guns and comments on BJG…..

    It will glow sooner thanks to the “compassionate” death panels of the State!

    “It is essentially the same plan that the health-insurance-industry lobbying firm Health Insurance Association of America — now known as America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) — wrote as Hillarycare in 1992. It’s a plan in which the insurance industry is making out like a bandit, as it is guaranteed millions of new customers and a bottomless Federal Treasury to pay their bills. Yes, it benefits those same insurance companies leftists so stridently loathed for the “unfair” way they covered only those who paid their bills. (Not that becoming entangled in the “deathcare” system that is American healthcare is a goal one should strive for, but that is a topic for another day.)”

    “More Americans are becoming wise to the debasement of the U.S. dollar and destruction of the economy by the ongoing quantitative easing to infinity money printing and massive deficit spending, as evidenced by the surge in the sale of physical gold and silver by the U.S. Mint in recent weeks. They are recognizing the system is in its death spiral.

    As of Jan. 15, the U.S. Mint had sold 110,500 ounces. That put it on track to exceed the 127,000 ounces sold in January 2012 and exceed the highest monthly tally since 1999.”

    Money for nothing – the true Statist “voodo” economics!

    “To be fair, Mr. Krugman acknowledges that minting such a coin would be an accounting “trick,” but he is dead serious about this option for the Obama administration. This then is the state of modern economics discourse in America, where a respected New York Times economist literally can propose creating “money for nothing” and have the idea taken seriously.

    Krugman’s suggestion is just another variant of the endless stimulus proposals, which purport to create greater aggregate demand in the economy by creating more money. Whether this is done by the Fed or the Treasury is of little importance, as long as government is creating demand-side “growth,” however artificial.

    But in just a few short sentences Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe eviscerates the Krugmans of the world by pointing out the obvious: If governments or central banks really can create wealth simply by creating money, why does poverty exist anywhere on Earth? Why haven’t successive rounds of quantitative easing by the US Fed solved our economic recession? And if Fed money creation really works, and doesn’t create inflation, why haven’t Americans gotten richer as the money supply has grown?

    The truth is obvious to everyone. Fiat currency is not wealth, and the creation of more fiat dollars does not mean that more rice, steel, soybeans, Ipads, or Honda Accords suddenly come into existence. The creation of new fiat currency simply strengthens a fantasy balance sheet, either by adding to cash reserves or servicing debt. But this balance sheet wealth is an illusion, just as the notion we can continue to raise the debt limit and borrow money forever is an illusion.”

    Three Monopolies of Power that Maintain the State:

    1) The control of ideas and belief (media & education)
    2) The control of money and finance
    3) The monopoly on violence

    WEC to your “Three Monopolies of Power that Maintain the State” you need to add the new and potentially most powerful: control of access to medical care and medicine!

    And Lord Obama will use all four ruthlessly to maintain and expand his power.
