The Miscalculation of
the American Left

American Thinker, by Steve McCann

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 10/31/2012 4:33:24 AM

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.

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.

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door. No one ever uses it so I figured it was the gas meter reader, but no, it was John who scurried in, using the cover of the large fig tree branches out of fear he might

Barack Obama´s Constant State
of Cognitive Dissonance
American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 1/25/2014 7:16:10 AM     Post Reply
Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

My relationship with Joe evokes the Jane Austen line, "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?" Joe is an 82-year-old black man, a very successful retired computer engineer. He owns homes in the most affluent areas of this city, and until recently he tooled around the southeastern U.S. in his Cessna. Joe is a forceful man who has assumed the role of a leader among our common acquaintance.

Obama´s Apocryphal Kenya Trip
American Thinker, by Jack Cashill    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 1/13/2014 7:17:31 AM     Post Reply
In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

One Sunday night in early November I watched Bret Baier´s Special Report in which he interviewed Charles Krauthammer. In responding to a question about his inclusion in his book, Things That Matter, a 2007 column about baseball player Rick Ankeil´s fall and return to the major leagues, Krauthammer responded with a reference to a line from that article: "...the catastrophe that awaits everyone from a single false move, wrong turn, fatal encounter. Every life has such a moment. What distinguishes us is whether -- and how -- we ever come back." Several hours later, I had a terrible accident. As it

Many people, including the New York Times´ editorial page editor, found it puzzling that one of New York´s leftist mayor Bill De Blasio´s first priorities was ridding the city of one of its iconic diversions, the horse-drawn carriages at Central Park. They are simply not cynical enough. No matter how closely a politician may cleave to left wing (even communist) doctrines and personnel, follow the money. Robert Stacy McCain writes in The American Spectator: The bad guy in this drama, according to the carriage drivers, is Steve Nislick, chief executive officer of a New Jersey-based real-estate development company, Edison Properties.

One thing that neither Barack Obama nor his acolytes in politics and the media lacked was confidence. DAVID BROOKS: So there´s a lot of very smart people [around Obama], and it´s a testament to Obama´s confidence. You know, there was a great quote in a Ryan Lizza piece in the New Yorker about Obama´s confidence. And I´m not going to get it exactly right, but he essentially said, "I´m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policy than my policy directors. I think I´m a better political director than my political director." It was a speech of confidence. That was

First Lady Michelle Obama apparently halted private-jet traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing while President Obama headed to California. Michelle, with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, was expected to touch down in Aspen Friday to spend Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend away from her husband, who was meeting late Friday with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mrs. Obama’s arrival amid tight security was expected to delay the arrival of other wealthy vacationers on private jets at the Colorado ski resort.

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen.

A growing group of Ted Cruz’s Republican Senate colleagues are infuriated with his tactics. So frustrated was Arizona Senator John McCain with the latest, forcing fellow Republicans to take a politically risky vote on lifting the debt ceiling, that yesterday he tweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial accusing the Texas lawmaker of instigating “needless drama that helps to explain why Republicans remain a minority.” (Snip)Cruz’s insistence Feb. 12 on a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation lifting the nation’s borrowing cap foiled his party leadership’s plan to let the measure move forward with only Democratic votes.

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals and just 39 percent answered correctly that "the universe began with a huge explosion".
