Will Obama’s Majority Survive?
New York Magazine, by Jonathan Chait

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/1/2013 3:11:18 PM

Since November, the prospective death of the Republican coalition has hovered over American politics, and the autopsy has gained renewed attention in light of the debates over gay marriage and immigration, both of which split the GOP from rising chunks of the electorate. I’m an advocate of the theory, first put forward a decade ago by Ruy Teixeira and John Judis, that the electorate is forming a natural Democratic majority. The Republican Party appears to be caught in a double bind, in which the electorate is growingly progressively less white, and even younger white voters hold less conservative views than older ones. What’s more, evidence suggests that voters maintain the partisan allegiances they form at a young age. The picture looks grim for the GOP.

Sorry but Obama´s believers are in the same boat we are all in, Obama doesn´t care about them any more than he cares about us or America.

The problem the obamunists are going to have is that the Makers are going to get fed up with the Takers and Looters and will take their chips off the table. They will do so in such a way that the Looters won´t be able to loot any more and will be left trying to explain to the zombie Takers why they don´t have the handout for them. The Looters will blame the Makers, of course, but that will not get the Takers their handout. Things are going to get ugly. Good thing DHS has all those hollow point bullets.

Okay, Mr. Chait. Shall we take at look at the red state/blue state situation? We are ALL in trouble, but the Democrat model is crashing down.

"But the changing contours of America really do seem to have swept aside the old conservative majority, and there’s no foreseeable event to bring it back."

Therein lies the rub, Mr. Chait. Events have a way of changing historical trends. A collapse of the economy, a war with DPRK and/or Iran, or a showdown with China and/or Russia can quickly redirect the national momentum. It probably will. The question is whether the nation will survive its next challenge.

Does chait even know that after Carter the democrat party died and became the Progressive junta.
Since Obama is 100 times worse than carter his majority will roll over into the American peoples socialist Party and die in the flames of Economic failure and the inability to buy support from the fringes.
The real danger to a Republican surge is the radical 20% that wasn´t present when Reagan won.

With voting fraud in key states, I doubt he ever really had a majority. But, what difference does it make now? We´re screwed for the next 3.75 years.

I have come to the conclusion that if the Democrats mouths are moving, they are lying. Whatever they are saying, you can turn it around and it will resemble the truth...maybe. If 0bama says he is not a dictator, that´s exactly what he wants to be; if Debbie Wasserman Schlutz says there is not enough money for the democrats, you can bet they are sitting on a pile of money ready for propaganda; if Chuck U. Schumer says there are "metrics" in place for border security, you can bet there there is zero, nada, nothing in place for border security. It´s an exercise in mental gymnastics--try i, and you will find out more truth from the Democrats´ lying mouths than you realize.

What happens if they grant an amnesty and a special path to citizenship to US voting rights for 11 to 20 million illegal aliens with the vast majority of them eventually becoming liberal Democrat voters?

What happens when that 11 to 20 million legalized aliens bring another 11 to 20 million of their foreign family members here and with the vast majority of them eventually becoming liberal Democrat voters?

What happens if 400,000 low skilled foreign workers are allowed into the USA each year, never have to leave, get to bring their foreign families here, and the vast majority of those 400,000 plus their family members eventually become liberal Democrat voters each year?

Do you think that is out of the question? Think again, as that is what the liberal Democrats are planning on doing now, through their comprehensive immigration reform bill that is really one huge amnesty and open borders proposal, designed to in the long-term change the political balance of the USA permanently to the favor of the liberal Democrats.

Have to agree with other L-dotters, there are not enough "makers" to support the voting base of "takers" in the Demonrat party.

A Left/Demonrat/American party can only spell disaster for the country, economically, socially, intellectually, and morally.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:28:50 AM     Post Reply
What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Fox News Poll: Voters say Obama covering
up on Benghazi, want Congress to keep investigating
Fox News, by Dana Blanton    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:24:39 AM     Post Reply
Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

Disputed Call: Obama Tries to Shrug
Off House Leader´s Public Rebuke
Heritage, by Ken McIntyre and Aaron Trujillo    Original Article

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Naomi Wolf Attacks Me As A Zionist Agent
For Criticizing Brandeis Feminists
Breitbart Big Peace, by Phyllis Chesler    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/17/2014 2:05:18 PM     Post Reply
As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

F. Reid Buckley, Novelist

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s. He was often mistaken for his brother William, the founder of the conservative magazine National Review. The brothers not only looked alike. They also shared political

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
