Au Revoir, Mr. President
American Spectator, by R. Emmett Tyrrell

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/1/2012 6:50:42 AM

WASHINGTON -- Reviewing the last few months of this tumultuous presidential campaign, I see the debates as having a wondrous salience. The first was the most momentous since Nixon vs. Kennedy, though that 1960 confrontation was mostly a matter of cosmetics. Listening to it on radio, many in the audience came away thinking that the participant with the five-o'clock shadow had won. That would have been Richard Nixon. In debate this time around, Mitt Romney hammered Barack Obama mercilessly. Under the ongoing assault Obama's knees buckled and he repeatedly looked glassy-eyed.

I'll believe Obama is out of the White House late in January. Not before then.

Voting is the name of the game. They are fervently hoping overconfidence will make R+2 a D+7. All their predictions are based on that. Vote, vote vote. And tell everyone you know to vote.

Everything said to the present president should be in French these days to properly commemorate his giving up the battle in Benghazi before he gave anyone a chance to fight.

Talk about a guy who has spent too much time at his local country club..."Au Revoir" is just so...French! How suave of you Mr. Editor to take us into your world of crystal ball dreaming, leaving the heavy lifting once again for the grunts you so often lack the respect to pay any homage.

This election is by no means finished, with a victor declared. B. Hussein Obama-Mao has his lawyers in the wings and will not go "quietly into the night" as so many others wish.

Time for Emmett to consider donning sreet gear and join we regulars out in the fog for some real fun!

Smarmy lines don't really cut it when one is up against the reality of an evil dictator who has been way too successful for four years.

Imagine what he intends to do if given a 2nd chance...

Outstanding article. I printed it out for others earlier this morning.
Regardless of everything this president did NOT do, or the utter failure of projects he funded, the daily updates on Obama's involvement with the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi are mind-boggling.
.... Congress tossed another president out of the Oval Office for attempting to cover up details of a break-in at a local hotel. No Americans died there, nor was that president discovered to be collaborating with terrorists.

I am still waiting to learn WHO has the authority to dismiss this traitor in the White House, since the current Congress is too afraid to take action.

Agreed #4 but R +2 might not be enough to overcome the left's vote early and vote anyone who doesn't show up way of electing. We need to make sure no vote for R sits at home thinking it's going our way. I am always blown away by those who sit at home.

Always be careful about urging people to get out and vote. Those who need urging are often those who haven’t been paying attention, and that sort is all too likely to make the wrong choice. Those who have been paying enough attention will damn sure be getting out to vote, knowing as they do how critical it is to oust this disastrous president.

I'm to the point that I don't even want to exact revenge for all the ill deeds this fraud has wrought on this country. I just want to get rid of him and his stench and send him into oblivion.

Mitt can methodically clean up his mess and bring daylight to all his corruption and cowardice in a reflective way rather than an aggressive manner. The best way for this country to heal itself and move on is to totally dismiss the memory of the physical person. If Mitt does it right, no words will be needed to convey the national nightmare that resulted from electing an unqualified, incompetent, corrupt street punk. Never forget the stain, but throw away the empty suit.

#22 I want revenge. Im a GenXer who has had to live in the shadow of these revenant Marxists all her life, who was only a baby during the last years of Vietnam but picked up enough then to know the hippie Left was bad news then, and they have dominated the conversation of my life since then...and now their most vitriolic, vicious, and evil portions have taken my country hostage. The Weather Underground has a tight hold of the country I love and my daughter will have to live the consequences and gird any children she has against the revenants that will surely show up in their lifetime. I hate them for that. HATE. THEM.

No I want REVENGE. I want blood. I want Obama arrested and humiliated in front of the whole country. I want his vicious evil psychotic Weather Underground Marxist collaborators executed. I want the Hollywood useful idiots FLOGGED PUBLICLY, then dropped off in Cuba and NEVER allowed to return to the United States. I want them living the Socialist Utopia they have tried to foist on those of us who only wanted the representative republic our founding fathers dreamed for us. I think the blood of our Founding Fathers CRIES OUT for revenge. Ive had enough. I want it NOW. Not in the future. Not on my grandchildren's shoulders. NOW. MINE.

#24 Aubreyesque - Just tell us how you really feel.

Yes, I also think this bunch needs to be punished. If for no other reason than to be made an example of. And since Bronco Bama has only served one term, guess what? He can run again. We need to make sure he is ineligible (what a concept!) to run again. Everyone in his communist gaggle, and the horses they rode in on, should be airlifted and dropped into N. Korea. Cuba is way too close.

Was musing in the early morning fog of awakening that there are a lot of folks who would not want O's story to be told at all. I'd be very careful over the next few months if I were him, as there are those supposedly on his side that wouldn't benefit by his real story coming out.

We didn't win this thing yet. Even though I detest early voting (I don't trust it), I voted yesterday and because, all over the country, some Romney votes have been showing up as Obama votes (Google it), I triple checked my vote before pressing the Cast button and I still didn't trust that my vote would be honestly counted.

One more thing about the integrity of voting machines. Here in Las Vegas, people make and daily use thousands of slot machines that are tamper proof and can't be jiggered in order to cheat. Unless, of course, the owner/maker/programmer of the machine wants to cheat. Same with voting machines. They can be programmed any way the programmer wants to program them.

Then there is the problem of security. This early voting boondoggle creates a security nightmare. Here in Las Vegas, for about 10 days, we had 80 separate sites where voting was available on rolling days which meant that hundreds of voting machines were constantly in motion in the backs of trucks making security essentially nonexistent.

IMHO, our elections have become a farce! Like the man said, it's not who votes, it's who counts the votes that determines the winner.

It took him 2 weeks? It was obvious in the 2008 primaries that Obama was over his head. As for the time of Carter, I remember those days, some of you may not. I remember that everyone thought our best days were behind us. The world had run out of energy and the Japanese were taking over our businesses. Then Reagan said it was morning in America and he was right for 12 years.

Old time conservative, Emmet Tyrell, remember him well, is a present time RINO, and until Obozo is OUT of office, GONE, there can be no good news like this piece from an out of touch oldster.
Let's face it, Tyrell is not leading the New Media, is not an active reserching part of the counter establishment Brietabartian force that is doing its utmost to save America. This is as untimely as Christie smiling with Obozo. That one made me sick.

My dream is to see barkey being led from the WH in handcuffs and placed in Federal Prison for fraud and committing high crimes and misdemeanors against our great country and the American people. The linebacker and her mom being dragged out without being able to take the china, the silver - or even the audacious wardrobe that we, the taxpayers, paid for that insufferable affirmative action mooch. She will always have memories of the lavish, in your face tax paid vacations to comfort her after her public fall to disgrace.

Poster 24 makes some good points. We watched Bill Clinton, impeached and disbarred, yet he still escapes the humiliation he deserved. He's still able to go out and speak in public while the media and democrats portray him as honorable when he is not. Hillary becomes a senator and SOS. She jet sets all over the world, living lavishly, destroying our nation and reputation around the world. Ted Kennedy killed a woman and he was the Lion of the Senate. Obit is Clinton, Hillary, Ted Kennedy and countless others who have done major damage to this country only to go on and live in the lap of luxury with honorable positions. People who should be under jails accumulated ill gotten gain and it seems they will never pay. But, they will pay. We may not see it and that might make the fact that they will pay seem not good enough for some of us. I can certainly understand where 24 is coming from. God is the only righteous and just judge, but He gives us the ability to make laws and execute justice and that is what's lacking in all of this. None of us want obit to pay just for the sake of it. We want him to pay because his actions cry out for justice. People might say that conservatives are no different than the rabid left, but we don't accept that because it's not true. It's not about politics and our guy winning. This is about whether we will remain a free people. This skating by America hating people has to stop. Something's got to give.

‘Obamacare is Working!’
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/21/2014 7:25:29 AM     Post Reply
Last Thursday, the president announced the Obamacare debate over for the second time this month. The pretext for his repetition of this talking point was yet another implausible claim concerning the number of people his health care law has helped gain coverage. (snip) If you feel that President Obama is protesting a bit too much, you are not alone. Public opinion surveys consistently show that most Americans still oppose Obamacare. Moreover, a growing number of Americans believe the president to be a habitual liar. According to a new Fox News poll, “Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies ‘most of the time.’

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare Is On a
Winning Streak

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

You´re Wrong, Bart Ehrman

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
