The Miscalculation of
the American Left

As the 2012 election season winds down to a merciful end, the Obama re-election cabal is in a state of shock and panic at the very real prospect that they and their anointed "messiah" look headed for a monumental defeat. Such a defeat may well change the political landscape in the United States for many years to come, thanks to Barack Obama. The American left, the Obama campaign team, the Democratic establishment, and much of the mainstream media are stunned and surprised

When you have created a "frankenstein" monster of a socialist system don't be surprised when the villagers come at you with torches and pitchforks.

Oblamer is caught in another of his messes at a crucial time in his presidency. He is wildly trying to "spin" Benghazi so much it has turned into a hurricane and he'll be blown away.

0bama is no messiah; he was (and is) a false messiah in a long line of false messiahs.

It is an important distinction to make because there is a real One.

Wolves in sheeps clothing come to devour those that remain unaware and unwilling to be responsible for theirs and America's future. Wake up America! Vote for Romney/Ryan and kick the marxist's out of Washington.

I'd simplify it further. Are you a perpetual child (democrat) who wants to wake up to Christmas morning, every morning, hoping that Santa Barack has brought you some new "toys"? Or are you a mature adult (conservative) who stopped believing in Santa?

Excellent article - I hope it becomes a Must Read.
FTA: The left relied solely on image rather than substance, and because of racial guilt as well as presenting Barack Obama as a "moderate" bent on hope and change, they succeeded in winning the presidency and control of Congress.

America is hungry for substance.

All five above are great posts...thank you! I was just talking with the Mrs. this morning and we were discussing socialist regimes. They all start out with Utopian ideas and how wonderful all will be when everything is under their control.

Once they become the majority, they become less tolerant of the opposition until the hardcore resistors fall victim to "the final solution." Thankfully there are still enough people who understand what a free America and our Constitution is all about.

We can and must vote for freedom every time an election day rolls around. Goodbye, Obama, and take your Marxist entourage with you. Now, if we could just vote out the sycophantic media that licks his boots too!

Whether a Romney win is indicative of the beginning of "the great unraveling" (TGU) is yet to be seen. A lot will depend on his willingness to confront the socialist tenets deeply ensconced in today's society. The bastions of progressive think are many and powerful: private union members; a majority of our educators, K-doctoral thesis; a left-leaning MSM; government workers; 99% of the art world; and a growing underclass of never-employed takers. Romney will certainly be able to jump start the economy by following the same common-sense principles employed by Reagan and JFK in similar circumstances, but I'll need more signs than just lower unemployment figures before I'll believe TGU has actually begun.

For starters, Romney has to stop reaching across the aisle.

We can hope that BO and his intellectual vacuum will prove to be a "bridge too far" for the Democrats and they will decide that a more traditionally American profile is the best for them. Dump the UN-ish socialist garbage once and for all.

Let the Euroweenies continue to choke on that crap. It will give them something to do until Sharia takes over.

Liberals Digging Their Political Graves
American Thinker, by Christopher Chantrill    Original Article

Do liberals understand what they are doing? I don´t think they do. I think that they are blinkered by their one-dimensional view of politics: it reduces to the struggle for social justice. In 2010 after the midterm the Obamis decided they had to punch back twice as hard against the moneyed interests that would be unleashed by Citizens United. In Seattle the activist left is planning another May Day march: “Capitalist police state... rape of civil liberties.” Oh yeah! Liberals do not think about the real meat of political philosophy, which is not to design a perfect political system with perfect

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules
designed to un-do mandatory
sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

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.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

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.

Michelle Obama:
´splurging is the key to life´

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.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

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

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
