CNN, Obama & America Addicted to Losing

Albert Maslar · Apr. 16, 2014

Good investors shed losses and keep gains. A losing investment is not going to get better and at the most, will languish at a given low level or decline further, whereas using what little may be salvaged can be put to better, more productive gainful use.



Even the Bible supports growth of resources and dumping the loser, in that three servants were given five, two, and one bag of gold respectively, to manage in the absence of the master. Upon returning, the master rewarded the first for doubling his five bags of gold with being ruler over many, and likewise, the second was rewarded with being ruler over few for doubling his two bags of gold. However, the third returned his one bag of gold intact, no gain, no loss, as he buried the coins, fearing the reaction of the master should there be a loss. The master ordered the unprofitable servant to be cast into the outer darkness.



By the same token, America has been blessed with innumerable symbolic bags of gold, as has admitted narcissistic druggie Barack Obama. At this point in time, it appears that both America and Obama have seen their bags of gold submerged into deeper depths than that of Malaysian Flight 370 that is presumed to be buried in the Indian Ocean at an impenetrable five-mile-plus depth. American values have not only been buried like that of the wary servant, but buried in the rotting, decaying morality that is the eventuality for an amoral culture that leads to the immoral, and a secularism that denies allegiance to any power but that of its own evil inclinations.



CNN is addicted to ho-hum repetitive news coverage of the ongoing and perhaps never-ending saga of the vast unfathomable depths of the Indian Ocean. Every kind of theory, real or imagined, fact or fiction, has been dissected ad nauseam, but CNN persists.



CNN left its business model languishing in the depths of the Indian Ocean, putting all its eggs into the vapor basket of missing flight 370, discussing every possibility in unsupported, unprecedented detail. CNN has been on this story for now six weeks, giving time to a Malaysian plane disappearance halfway around the globe. What will it take for CNN to stop squandering airtime other than they do not want to be other than first when the elusive black boxes are found? (If it is ever found.) Is it worth it, or is it all just a worthless exercise in futility? There is every possibility that another news agency might still beat CNN to the punch.



CNN is not alone in beating a dead horse as ObamaCare is suffering the same fate as this historic legislation has been unconstitutionally and illegally folded, bent, stapled, mangled, spindled, mutilated and disrespected by its very progenitors, Obama, Pelosi and Reid. Their barbie doll is all dressed up and made up on the outside, while the dead insides rot away the American dream of jobs, legitimate health care and related insurance.



ObamaCare is an acknowledged failure, even in the eyes of Democrat legislators who fear their own Nov. 2014 mid-term re-election doom and gloom, as the public is finally seeing through this farce of health insurance legislation that can never work. The signup entry HealthCare.gov has malfunctioned to the point that it cannot be fixed, but that is the good news, as ObamaCare itself can never deliver as intended … or not.


But like CNN, Obama will not give up, will not admit failure, and gloats over having signed up a questionable 7.1 million subscribers out of a population of 310 million, while ignoring the millions who lost their insurance and doctors that Mr. President flagrantly lied that they could keep.



The saying is that men lost on the road are too proud to ask for directions to the right road, and based on CNN and Obama, that must be true, as both fling themselves headlong into oncoming traffic, when they should just do a 180 and get on the right track in the right lane – right being the operative word; CNN for real news, and Obama for real governance.



Government thinks it must always do something about situations it knows not whereof it speaks. Obama’s meddling in Egypt and Libya made controllable bad situations worse, spread malaise to Syria, opened the barn door for nuclear ambitions of Iran, while undoing any good accomplished in Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention fostering deterioration of U.S. relations with friendly Israel. Now Obama is at an impasse with Russia President Vladimir Putin as he picks off low-hanging fruit of Crimea and the Ukraine while eyeballing still other fallen away segments of the old USSR Empire.



Putin has the power of Russian gas and oil production that Europe is dependent upon, giving the KGB man much power over the European economy. Obama can give America a similar advantage of energy independence but thwarts every effort to increase American exploration and drilling while adamantly blocking the Keystone XL Pipeline that would not only make the U.S. energy independent, but in the process generate thousands of good, high-paying, tax-paying, welfare-reducing jobs. Obama boasts and takes credit for current high U.S. oil, gas production and exploration, but those result from the previous Bush administration that is blamed for every Obama failure.



America is divided and hooked onto inconsequential six-week-old news that means absolutely nothing for America. CNN is addicted to the missing flight 370. Obama is addicted to an unworkable dysfunctional ObamaCare, but adding insult to injury, without having completed the Herculean task of his own choosing, he rushes into the gauntlet of immigration, global warming, taxes, deficit, debt, abortion, homosexuality, and a host of issues in defiance of Constitutional rights pertaining to religion, speech, and the right to bear arms.



America is not hooked on getting to the source of problems that actually begin with the family, traditional marriage, and father and mother units that nurture and grow the country. But that too is fading, as modern parents seem compelled to ratify the actions and lifestyles of their children and grandchildren who demand parents rubber-stamp and approve their deviant non-conforming lifestyles. In the process are sacrificed the God-given Judeo-Christian principles that have led to the formation of the great Republic of the United States of America. It is most certain parents would not encourage their children to play games in the middle of high-traffic streets.



But the beat goes on as what you see is what you get, and there is nothing seen that is not repeated in direct contradiction to Albert Einstein who quipped, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again, but expecting different results.” Obama quipped to French President Hollande, “That’s the good thing as a President: I can do whatever I want.”



Six years of failure to create and activate ObamaCare is proof of that statement, while also proving Einstein to be right on target as regards the persistence of Obama in pursuing his failed futile frustrating dysfunctional ObamaCare. Not being content with all of that, Obama threatened arbitrary executive action to bypass Congress on legislation he will supersede with executive orders and his threat, more like a promise, “I have a pen and phone.”



What Obama does not have is the moral high ground, absence of which guarantees the chickens coming home to roost. An inkling of that scenario is evident by the military-type confrontation by supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. Civilian militia of 1,000 gun-toting camouflaged volunteers from other states, armed with rifles and side arms, ran off hundreds of also gun-toting U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) agents trying to execute court-ordered confiscation of 1,000 cattle “trespassing” on alleged federal property. Obama is addicted to losing, though mostly it appears he is winning. In fact, America is losing, but is it by design of the powers that be who are behind the anointed one?



Town Hall Finance reports 26% of available tax revenue is used to pay interest on the growing national debt. Obama, “Hey Big Spender, spend a little time with me,” is behind bars with AG Eric Holder, unconstitutional crooked Senate Leader Harry Reid and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who though catholic, said abortion, the killing of 56 million innocent babies in the womb since Roe v. Wade in 1973, is “sacred ground.” What a wonderful mother and grandmother role model Pelosi portrays herself to be, when she tells her children and grandchildren, that despite her protestations against life, “they” were allowed to be born.



The U.S. is addicted to losing, proof being that America has not won any war since WWII, having effectively lost in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Kosovo, Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Pakistan, with a confrontation with Russia waiting in the wings.


No morals, no ethics, no God, no Jesus Christ, no Ten Commandments, no Constitution and no Bill of Rights constitute no match for whatever comes. In Egypt and the Passover, the tenth plague forced Pharaoh to release the Jews from captivity. Is President Barrack Hussein Obama the 11th and final plague for America, or is there something worse to come, like America coming into captivity by sacrificing freedom for a false sense of safety?



Benjamin Franklin wrote the following in 1755: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” President Barack Obama is antipathetical to the Ben Franklin doctrine, as Obama works 24/7 to provide his dictatorial unconstitutional form of safety for his form of liberty which is his way or the highway.
