Sandbagging Princes Shame

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/17/2014 7:05:26 AM

Just when you thought it couldn´t get any more embarrassing for America´s self-appointed monarchs, His Highness King Barack and the Sovereign Queen Michelle, two kids go and shame them in front of the whole world. (snip)while wannabe American royalty were on their 23rd vacation or so, the heir to the throne of Britain and his little brother Harry spent the day on the southwestern coast of England sandbagging a burst wall to protect the property of lowly British citizens. For the entire world to see, as they slogged through the mud working next to ordinary citizens, Wills and Harry were

Even the thought of Michelle and Barack being down in the mud and the muck and getting all dirty and tired like the common folk makes me shake my head in disbelief. Not gonna happen.

The closest Michelle ever got to this was when she posed for a PR picture in front of "her" new White House Garden a couple of years ago, brand new gloves on and awkwardly holding a bunch of carrots in one hand and a trowel in the other, while wearing a dressy outfit that probably cost several thousand dollars.

Yeah, I´m sure ´ol´ Mooch was out there bright and early every morning a hoeing and a weedin, putting down fertilizer, and eventually picking the fruits of her--i.e. some poor White House groundsmen´s--labor.

Standing behind a counter for an hour dishing out food that someone else made, wearing $600 sneakers, all for a photo op, is the full extent of our royalty´s concern for their fellow citizens in need.

If it doesn´t involve dishing out OPM, they have better things to do - in Aspen and Palm Springs, or Martha´s Vineyard, or Hawaii, or Bermuda, or....

Diana would be proud of her sons and rightly so. Well done, William and Harry. The Obama´s remind the of the royal family in the movie with Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, Coming to America who had rose petals strewn before their paths. There is an air of expectation swirling about the Obama´s that is one royal entitlement.

I am glad this story was selected for posting. Read it carefully and it will show you in an instant the difference between class and BS. This may help to explain Dear Leader´s dislike of the British. As they say ,"class will tell" so it has been Obama´s strategy to avoid spending time near the British to prevent people from drawing that conclusion. But when Obama poses next to Trayvon Martin´s picture and says, "If I had a son he would look like Trayon Martin", he thinks people empathize with him. Poor Daddy Hussein, he had such great expectations for Trayvon. He will never grow up to become a community organizer.... :-(

Sorry to say but this is common for the "jumped up". Communist elite are usually people of the masses or jumped up.

Moral of this story? Communism is just trading aristocrat elite for other heavy consumers at the expense of the little guys. Inequality still reigns.

Do you suppose that the people like the dem young and dem women who still support the o´s have any clue about socialism/communism or do they support it in full?

Both parties should opt for an electoral system where a person must get 50% of the vote or there is a runoff election. Therefore we could have more than the two party system and the socialist/communists could run as themselves and not as democrats.

So what do you think of the red end of the dem party? The democrats aren´t publicly speaking out against it,just retiring while they still have cover, some cover of their part in the fundamental change America is being subjected to.

I would include Bill and Hillary with the Obamas here, too. The last two Democrat presidents mostly lived as tenants in executive mansions or in urban apartments/condos. They do not understand the roll up the sleeves and take care of it ethos that comes with a beloved home or a special retreat. The British Royals know the responsibilities and the dirt under the fingernails that comes with owning property, especially rural property.

The Hollywood version of Royalty people like the Obamas try to emulate is all fancy clothes, servants and parties. Often the real life version involves trying not to step on horse apples and cow pies while overseeing the health of the realm.

When was the last time that we saw a democrat president, Carter excepted, get his hands dirty? No democrat president in my lifetime, Carter excepted, ever really had a real career outside of politics. If they didn´t come from money, they were politically connected. But yet, somehow all these rich, well connected democrats are touted as champions of the people who decry the self-made republicans.

I cant help but believe that half of America would be perfectly fine with a monarch, so long as that monarch looked good.

This spring when the snow starts melting there will be huge floods in our country. Watch the news carefully to see how many African Americans are carrying sand bags or doing anything at all to help. I have been watching for several years and have seen a handful. What you will find is a virtually unbroken sea of white faces. Draw your own conclusions.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Let’s get one thing straight: the savage mob attack on a white motorist in Detroit by a dozen or more black men on Wednesday was not a “vigilante style” attack. Yet that’s what Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones are trying to call it in a joint statement meant to play down the unavoidable racial element. Says their statement: Earlier this week, a traffic accident that injured a young boy, David Harris, escalated into a vicious attack on the driver of the vehicle, Steve Utash, who had done the right thing by stopping to check on the boy.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
