Sandbagging Princes Shame
King and Queen Obama

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.

The American public has woken up to the folly of trying to end racial discrimination by practicing it, dooming affirmative action to a slow death, and the racialist left is not taking the news very well. That is the only conclusion to draw from the extraordinary dissenting opinion yesterday by Justice Sonia Sotomayor in Schuette v BAMN, the case in which the Court upheld Michigan’s law outlawing racial preferences in state-funded higher education. Sotomayor took the unusual step of reading the dissent aloud from the bench, indicating her vehemence. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent was actually longer than all the other opinions in

Early 2014 will be viewed historically as the period when most of the American left’s bubbles detached themselves completely from reality and wafted off to Unicornland. (snip)left-wing intellectual bubbles have been cold, desolate places since the Reagan era. With the catastrophe of the Great Society, the undeniable success of Reaganism, and at last the collapse of the USSR, leftist illusions were shattered, leaving little but blasted dreams and bitterness, expressed as PC and related programs that amounted to little more than gestures of revenge. Then came Obama, who brought it all back to life again.

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
