Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead. The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something. I really don’t see how the Source corrected to site style
I just went and scraped off the Romney "Lets Rebuild America" bumper sticker from my car.
We've all been kidding ourselves that we can build anything with so much selfishness holding us back. The parasites have spoken.
Therefore, I am going to be selfish, too. Dems have taken the hard work, generosity, and kindness of conservatives for granted for far too long. It's time they learn that their entitled selves don't have us to ride on. Tell Obama and his minions: We DON'T have your back any more. I'm kicking that saddle off starting today.

We will see in two years. We are bout to to war in the middle east. Syria is exploding. Israel is now alone. I do believe in divine retribution. We are now receiving that. It will get better. but after the scourging.. This is no mandate.
I agree. Time to cut the Jerks off. I am unfriending all libs and any moron who voted for the left. Permanently, including best friend since childhood. Let them rep what they have sown. Nice is over, get out of my way!
Exactly right. No more Mr. Nice Guy. All these liberal artists, actors and business owners can kiss my posterior. I will absolutely not allow my family to subsidize them. When Paul McCartney dissed GW three years ago I stopped listening to Beatles music. The heck with these ingrates.
As for me, I'm keeping my R&R sticker on my car. As time goes by and our beloved country is turned into a banana republic, people will know I did not vote for the dictatorship that is to follow. Small solace in that, eh?
I will be surprised if Rush Limbaugh does not announce his retirement this week.
Why should he keep working to smarten up a nation of schlubs who care more about sports and entertainment celebrities than their own freedom? He fought the good fight every single day but was beaten by a cabal of leftists and party hacks posing as news reporters.
"These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts."
Sad. True. Tragic.
Especially the part about the GOP refusing to fight as a moral force. To do that, you must - must! - identify the enemy as immoral. This is impossible if you grant him the sanction of "good intentions" or "idealism" or "difference of opinion" or whatever smokescreen du jour Democrats demand in order to commit their crimes unpunished.
Sanctioning the Enemedia, by letting them once again host and control the debates (why??!!) is another mistake. The evidence of malpractice against the Enemedia now reaches from here to the moon, yet- no prosecutions??!! Why not??!!
Today, I see little hope, and strategic thinking shifts away from winning elections and toward surviving an electorate hostile toward success.
Those who have not done so already can quit patronizing Hollywood, alphabet news, and liberal newspapers and magazines. Get your news from Rush or Lucianne, but don't pay for it. Liberal TV will melt your brain.
#4 is correct. There will come a judgment on those who have not asked for forgiveness. We cannot expect any less for the abominations our society demands, and celebrates on a daily basis.
This is not our home, we are only passing through.
#5 and #6 - well, now that we've abandoned being America and have turned into Europe, why not give the Obama voters a taste of Europe, and declare a national strike? We'll all walk off our jobs, and head to the welfare offices, telling them we want ours, too. Meanwhile money for Obama voters not to mention goods and services will dry up.
Let's demand that multimillionaire Democrats like Soros and Katie Couric and Steven Spielberg support us. Let's be creative here.
I have been posting for months that Romney would never be president and it was time to plan the rest of your life. In my heart I hoped I was wrong, but in my mind I knew I wasn't. We should make the most of each day. Don't put off the things you really want to do. Each day is going to be a tiny bit worse than the day before. More people will see their lives changed in devastating ways with no hope of recovery, but we have some time. Make the most of it and maybe plan where you will go if we degenerate into a dictatorship. We did get to see the pinnacle of human achievement.
I'm with you about making it personal. I plan to de-friend some Facebook friends today. I don't need folks that air-headed in my circle. And, I so wanted to see the new Lincoln movie. It looks marvelously done, but since it is a Speilberg production, it is off my list!
Just wait until Taxmeggedon hits in January. Zero's cult members won't know what hit them. Wait until Obamacare is fully implemented in 2014. No care is available, nothing but long lines and death. God's protection over the USA is gone. Democrats booed Him at their convention. We get what we deserve.
I think the dems have a lock on the WH for years to come. There is simply no republican anywhere that can beat a dem for the top spot. Face it, Americans want free stuff early an often. We`re living the 60`s all over again. If it feels good do it.
Remember it was the cheap labor loving wimpy Republican business interests who caused mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the first place.
The liberal Democrats now intend to eventually flip the vast majority of those illegal aliens, through incremental amnesty programs and a "path to citizenship" into an overwhelming number of new liberal Democrat voters.
Those factors have now become a growing albatross around the neck of the GOP that no longer will be able to muster up enough voters to win future national elections.
I understand all the bitterness in the posts above. But I don't see how cutting off our personal friends and contacts --because they happen to be Dem voters-- is going to help anything.
I'm a close friend of a retired policeman. He is at heart a good person, but a dyed-in-the-wool Dem and union guy. He hated Romney (called him "Willard"), and mocked Ryan. The Dem's clever, demagogic class-warfare lies were tailor-made for people like him.
Yet he understood how bad Benghazi was. He is pro-gun and pro-military. The next few years will severely test his Dem credentials! I will still be around to gently push him in the right direction.
Reply #12 makes me wonder if they've ever listened to Rush. His demise and retirement was the topic of speculation when Clinton won 2nd term and when Bush won the first one. Begs the comment, ''Oh please!''
All this doom and gloom is very unseemly. Get ahold of yourselves. This fine country has suffered fools and tyrants before: FDR, Wilson, Carter, Benjamin Harry Henderson. Barry O is weak sauce compared to the despotic FDR regime. He tried to pack the Court for goodness sakes. We had to amend the Constiturion as a result of his insaterible list for power. The Obama years will be rough, but the nation will bounce back. Think of these lost years as reparations. After 8 years of reparations we won't owe the blacks a thing. They will have to compete on a level playing field just like all the rest of us. Think of it!
Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place. While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning,
QUINCY – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? "It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling. “I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ. It’s not the state Source corrected by Staff.
Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview. Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart.
CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department. The letters make the case for the whistleblowers to be able to share
Barack Obama´s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.
The Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Tuesday that it released personal information on potentially thousands of farmers and ranchers to environmental groups, following concerns from congressional Republicans and agriculture groups that the release could endanger their safety. According to a document obtained by FoxNews.com, the EPA said “some of the personal information that could have been protected … was released." Though the EPA has already sent out the documents, the agency now says it has since redacted sensitive details and asked the environmental groups to “return the information.” But Sen. John Thune, who originally complained about the release,
Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats. On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey titled “Partisan Differences in Knowledge.” The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party. “Republicans fare substantially better than Democrats on several questions in the survey,
James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day. The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith. The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded. ´He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his
A presidential ethics panel has opened the door to testing an anthrax vaccine on children as young as infants, bringing an angry response from critics who say the children would be guinea pigs in a study that would never help them and might harm them. The report, however, released on Tuesday by the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, said researchers would have to overcome numerous hurdles before launching an anthrax-vaccine trial in children. It now goes to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who will decide whether to
New Pope Francis I is a conservative in the mold of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. That’s especially true on the issue of abortion, which he called a “death sentence” for the unborn in 2007. “We aren’t in agreement with the death penalty,” he said during that speech, “but in Argentina we have the death penalty. A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.” In his writings, Francis wrote, “we should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence,’ that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion
Democrats were overjoyed when George W. Bush left office in January of 2009. Obama had promised to end Bush´s hawkish foreign policy and the "war on terror´s" detention and interrogation regime. But in the beginning of his fifth year as president, Obama´s record has been surprisingly similar to his predecessor´s in those areas. 1. Democrats fought George W. Bush’s troop surge in Iraq in 2006. Obama copied it in Afghanistan in 2009. You would think Democrats would react the same way they did to Bush´s surge policy. But they were really more like
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama today walked away from a roomful of journalists, leaving Jay Carney to evade numerous media questions about the administration’s semi-secret, closed-door process of killing American citizens who are tied to jihad. The numerous questions were prompted by the release late Monday of the administration’s legal brief explaining why it has the legal and presidential authority to kill overseas Americans in al-Qaida, even without a trial or public due process. “I think you’ve seen in the way that this president
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
