"Can't wait for the leftards' misery when Romney wins. It will be like eating foie gras to the sound of trumpets." @jamesdelingpole on Twitter last week. Well: I think that's what they call a 'hostage to fortune.' And, of course, I don't remotely blame all the leftards who've been blowing raspberries in response.[Snip]On the evidence of Obama's four years in power so far, what exactly have they seen that augurs so well for the next four years of the American presidency? Was it his resolute decision to sacrifice the lives of four brave men in Benghazi, perhaps? Or was it
Comments: James, who doesn't mince words, certainly slices and dices far better than a wind turbine.
I don’t yet know how best to proceed... but I do know this; For me, this fight is NOT over! I may not have that many years left in me... but some of my friends do... and their children do... and their soon to be grandchildren do... and other Americans whom I do not even know do... and it’s just too important to let that go without continuing to fight!
There is simply nowhere else in this world to go... and I WILL NOT give up this fight while I can still draw breath!!
As yet, I have no solid plan of action... but I WILL formulate one and I WILL prosecute it with everything that I have left in me — so help me God!! I will not give up this fight for Freedom started some 236 years ago by Patriots marching through the snow in their bare feet!!!
All the sacrifice... all the blood... all the misery... This can NOT have been spent in vain!!!
So help me God, I mean this with all my heart; I WILL NOT GIVE UP THIS FIGHT!
"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."

Thanks, OP, for posting this. My friends who think I'm nuts to worry about the dollar now will be getting a link to this. Delingpole says it like it is:
Problem is, the money has run out. It happened quite a while back and all our governments and their corporatist and bankster allies have been doing these last few years is finding ever more ingenious ways of disguising the fact. Just so long as they can keep the scam going just that little bit longer, that's all they care about.
I don't think we can last four more years without our dollar failing. Especially if there is a rogue nuke attack. But, yes we must fight. And we must have a candidate ready to take over who knows how to lead like Reagan did, rebuilding us from the ashes. Gov Sarah Palin could do it -- but we'll have to see what the press is like by then. They may be broken without advertisers to pay their cushy salaries.
You Didn't Build That Revenge It Never Worked (free enterprise)
Excepting the greedy racist House in its way, the Left sees its long-awated golden opportunity to force a Glorious Socialist Revolution upon the USA. Its century-long struggle was never about anything else, and they will not pass up this once in a lifetime chance to destroy America (for the "common good"). We will be seeing Obama's true colors, and they will all be dark red.
Don't buy gold except for maybe vintage collector coins. There's a provision in the death bill that allows the goobermint to confiscate any other form of gold and these transactions are reported to the goobermint. Vintage coins are not. I don't know about silver.
Well, Mr. Delingpole, at least your prime minister is happy. He has a fellow traveler to work with. In the past, I have looked at history to calm myself. We, the USA, the free world, have been in bad positions before and worked our way out of them. I, somehow, don't feel any comfort in reviewing history anymore.
BlackRock, the world’s biggest investor, has warned that central banks are poised to tighten monetary policy in the Anglo-Saxon countries and China, advising clients to be ready to pull out of global stock markets at any sign of serious trouble. “2014 is the year to squeeze more juice out of risk assets. But investors should be ready to discard the fruit when it starts running dry,” said Ewen Cameron Watt, chief strategist for the BlackRock Investment Institute. The group said in its 2014 Investment Outlook that investors have “jumped on the momentum train, effectively betting yesterday’s strategy will win again tomorrow”,
An Islamist fanatic has told the family of Drummer Lee Rigby he had no regrets about killing him because he was “a soldier” himself. Michael Adebolajo, 28, told a court he would “never regret obeying the command of Allah” and that his only disappointment was that the police did not shoot him dead. [Snip] With Fusilier Rigby’s family sitting feet away in the Old Bailey, Adebolajo denied that the 25-year-old’s death was murder, because Muslims were “at war” with the British people. The soldier’s widow, Rebecca Rigby, left the court in tears as Adebolajo told the jury that Fusilier Rigby
GOOSE CREEK--Navy wife Cleo Lott relies on the Weapons Station commissary to feed her family of four. It´s one of the most coveted perks that goes with being part of the military. And that´s why news that the Pentagon is looking at closing all of its stateside commissaries has her a little rattled. [Snip] "Even though the big chain stores say they have deals and savings, it doesn´t compare to the commissary," she added. "Makes me wonder what will the government want to take away next?" When word broke last week that the Defense Commissary Agency was asked by the Department of Defense to look at how to shutter
Volunteer fire departments all across the U.S. could find themselves out of money and unable to operate unless Congress or the Obama Administration exempts them from the Affordable Care Act. ´I thought the kinks were worked out of Obamacare at the first of the month, Central Florida volunteer firefighter Carl Fabrizi told Sunshine State News. ´Man, oh, man, this could potentially destroy some real good companies in Florida.´ The U.S. Department of Labor takes the term ´volunteer´ literally, but the IRS says volunteer firefighters are technically employees if they´re on the job more than 30 hours per week, making them
Recently I´ve acquired a second career poisoning the minds of the young in schools. Even in the very posh ones, there´s always an element which is mildly appalled that someone like me has been allowed anywhere near their precious charges. Science departments, I find, are particularly resistant and I quite understand why. Being mostly Guardian readers they have this caricature image in their heads of what James Delingpole is like: he´s a wanton controversialist; he´s anti-science; he´s a denier in the pay of Big Oil who harasses all those wonderful principled scientists doing their best to warn us of impending
It´s been a month since Twitter floated on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and we´ve already seen more than $6 billion drop off its market cap. As with every recent tech IPO, there´s always a big furore and gigantic valuation, following by the creation of lots of rich people, and then the share price starts to slide as everyone sobers up and starts to think more clearly. Just look at Facebook--once the excitement of the 2012 flotation had died down, the stock price plummeted to around half of its initial offering, and stayed there for a year.
Immigration--controlled, legal immigration--can bring advantages to the destination state. That sentiment is often trotted out as kind of obligatory throat-clearing before a politician goes on to call for restrictions, a neat example of the Everything-Before-The-But-Is-Bullsh*t hermeneutic rule (“I am the first to say that I recognise the benefits of successive immigrants from the Huguenots onwards, but there comes a moment when we reach saturation point…”) Except that it isn’t bullsh*t; at least, it needn’t be. Immigration can be either good or bad, depending on how it is managed. Unrestricted, unplanned settlement is usually disastrous.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
