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.

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.

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.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the
Titanic’s New Captain
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/14/2014 7:08:54 AM     Post Reply
The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

No, The Obamacare Debate
Isn’t Over
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/7/2014 7:03:29 AM     Post Reply
Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

Obamacare:They Shoot Horses
Don´t They?
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/31/2014 7:31:12 AM     Post Reply
A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

Hobby Lobby Has Its

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Mayor de Blasio took great pride Thursday in signing the first piece of legislation of his mayoralty: the paid-sick-leave bill. But the move only illustrates why a personal-finance Web site has just ranked the city one of the worst places for finding a job. Under the new law, come April 1 companies with as few as five workers must offer at least five paid sick days a year. But April 1 is likely to turn out to be April Fool’s for New York workers. Because the consequence of this law is likely to be .?.?. fewer jobs. Businesses that can’t afford to

RNC Chairman: Obamacare still stinks

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
