Mitt Romney Inside The Gates Of Eden

The long ago rusted gates screeched wide open today. Past the red dust hinges, in marched capitalist Mitt Romney – into the once upon a time workers paradise. The man who greeted him was a world historical hero so unlikely a Hobbit ring-bearer approaching Mount Doom would seem pedestrian by comparison.



The two hugged and recalled when capitalism was banished from those shores. Today the capitalist and the hero worker that destroyed one world and created another stood together and remembered the past and prepared for the future.

They remembered that when the end came, the workers paradise was undone by the workers. The workers, well, “YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT” is really true. The workers did not build that state monstrosity of oppression and evil that once was. It was the workers who destroyed the lie of the workers paradise and brought freedom to the gulag rosary of states held together by fear and terror.

Today that most unlikely of heroes anointed the head of Mitt Romney:

“Today, Walesa — an anti-Communist freedom fighter — got political. “Gov. Romney, get your success, be successful!” Walesa said in Poland during a meeting with the former governor. “Poland and many other countries will certainly do their best for the United States to restore its leadership position. And after our conversation, I’m quite confident that you will be successful in doing that,” The Washington Post quoted him as saying.

The endorsement comes two months after Obama refused to host Walesa at the White House. The Polish government had requested that Walesa receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom that was posthumously awarded to Jan Karski, who served in the Polish Underground during World War II.

The Obama team refused. Former Polish Foreign Minister Adam Rotfeld received the award instead. “The likelihood is that President Obama didn’t want Walesa in the White House because Walesa has made critical remarks toward the president’s policies and in 2010 warned that the United States was slipping toward socialism,” the Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper suggested at National Review Online.”

If we lived in a world of Star Trek, Klingon operas would be sung about the man from Gdansk. In Narnia, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, or a galaxy far far away, Lech Walesa, the electrician, would be a hero amongst heroes.

Walesa was not alone. A newly elected American president, from the White House and at the borders of the Empire of Evil, shouted down the oppressive walls constructed to force the workers to remain in the workers paradise. A most unlikely Pope prepared to lay down his duties and once again become a freedom fighter in the streets of his beloved country. But it was Walesa who climbed the fence. It was Walesa.



Inside the Iron Curtain prison Walesa continued to struggle. On his chest, like a talisman, like an amulet from wizards purposed to protect the young electrician, lay a golden Nobel Peace Prize. Back then it was an award earned with blood and suffering which in turn offered protective prestige.

All the combined wizards of fantasy, Hollywood, and science fiction could not have made it up. A young electrician climbs a fence and the entire world changes as quickly as Alice falling through a rabbit hole, walking through a looking glass.



“It pretended to be the people’s system.” “We set about using truth to conquer untruth.” The workers organized. The “Solidarity” labor union was formed by the workers, not self interested paid organizers craving to dine with the masters, but by the workers. The workers did not build the workers paradise but the workers built Solidarity. Through government lies and unrelenting oppressions the workers finally freed themselves of the workers paradise.

So how odd that at this moment in history with capitalism under attack because of corrupt crony capitalism – the hero of the workers today politically hugged the capitalist. The capitalist Romney who carried his own Olympian gold medal to the meeting with the man who climbed the fence and freed the peoples of an Evil Empire.



The new Romney Super PAC ad: “Olympics” is a prelude to the case Mitt Romney will make to Americans. But Mitt Romney will have to be more than the Lord of the Olympic Rings.



It will be for Mitt Romney to make the case for capitalism and not a state apparatus that deadens then dictates. It’s going to take the right kind of leadership and Mitt Romney needs to make the case not only against the corruptions and treacheries of Barack Obama but of the value of freedom and a capitalist system even with all its faults.



Lech Walesa sees Mitt Romney as the choice to move the world forward – not backwards to the phony workers paradise of Occupy Wall Street and Barack Obama expense account crony capitalism.

Of Obama’s crony capitalism system of corruption and treachery Mitt Romney must say: “It pretended to be the people’s system.” The road to victory for Romney was laid out by Walesa decades ago – “We set about using truth to conquer untruth.”

Lech Walesa knows it’s time for Americans to climb the fence, not straddle it. His fellow Polish-American citizens, in crucial swing states will listen to the great hero.

It’s time for all Americans to stand in Solidarity with the man who freed a world.

  1. Well, I must take credit for the 3 great clips in admin’s post!

    I hit the trifecta.

    Here’s another one.

    Can you please embed?

    PLEASE embed, admin.

    This is BRILLIANT and very catchy.

    The Bro’s Gotta Go

  2. Mrs. S,

    I meant I have read several detailed synopses of the book at other sites. I will look for them.
    I’m sure it’s a great read filled with fascinating details. Elliot and Klein are terrific. I just meant after seeing the detailed synopses I think I have a good handle on the book’s contents, probably because so many of the points have been mentioned by the authors and others over the past 4 years.

    Like I said, I will look for the reviews.

  3. foxiladi on the last thread is right. The choreography is all coming together nicely.

    Stay true to yourself, Mitt. That is the winning contrast that will work.

  4. From the horses’ mouth.

    Re: Klein
    Here are some of the second-term plans we uncovered:

    • The re-creation of a 21st-century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs;

    • An additional government-funded jobs program that provides “good jobs” capable of supporting a family with a “decent standard of living.”

    • A new government mandate to force businesses to provide twelve weeks of paid benefits to employees who need time off to care for a new child, a sick family member, or their own illness. Plus, a higher, required minimum wage that would raise the floor for all employees.

    • An expansive, de facto amnesty program for illegal aliens via both executive order and interagency directives linked with a reduction in the capabilities of the U.S. Border Patrol.

    • Plans to bring in untold numbers of new immigrants with the removal of caps on H-1B visas and green cards.

    • Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health care centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States.

    • A National Infrastructure Bank that would evaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importance” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”

    • The wresting of control of the military budget from Congress by placing an ”independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.

    • Spreading the vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments;

    • A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy. “

    • A “green Manufacturing” revolving loan fund to create 680,000 manufacturing jobs and 1,972,000 additional jobs over five years

    • Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.

  6. Great post Admin.

    If I may add another video from the repub jewish coalition…. “Bruce”, a former Obot


  7. Reagan brought down the Soviet Union, by outspending them on defense. When the Berlin Wall fell, the Warsaw Pact fell and many countries in the eastern block embraced capitalism. In this country, the hard left had captured the universities, the charitable organizations and the media. They kept the flame burning. When Obama came along, the left in this country, certain business interest with a global model, and the remains of the counterculture saw an opportunity to bring down free enterprise and create state capitalism. Their goal was to bring down America as a world power, to dimish the role of the American People, and to establish a new elite from Ivy League institutions who would rule without the consent of the governed. Their pointman was Obama, scion of the cesspool known as Chicago where the underworld meets the elite. When they said never let a good crisis go to waste, they meant it.

  8. I made my second donation to Romney today, I think I will do what jstones & shortermer? are doing and start volunteering some time with romney’s campaign.

    Love this small business owner’s reaction to idiot Warren’s lines…

    Beautifully written post, admin- Your heart indubitably in it because you see the stars and fates coming into alignment. It was a brilliant move for Romney to meet with Walesa and combined with his past history of resurrecting the flailing Utah Olympics, Romney leaves Poland basking in the Olympic limelight of Americans.

  11. I forgot to mention, admin. Nice turn of phrase:… “gulag rosary of states held together by fear and terror.” I have to ask, are those your words, or from another article?

  12. Obama is a drowner. He wants to push us under for good with four more years unfettered by reelection concerns.

    _____________

    Your assumption would be mistaken… and I think I pointed it out to you clearly enough to understand you are reading ‘topic teasers’ based on Elliot’s and Klein’s research into Obama’s policy agenda. What you don’t know, is how, in the book, the authors translate Obama’s habit of using key phrases, sound-bytes, the public is familiar with to promote his policies. Then in phase 2, sending his scripted message out to newsys to further expand on his message with misstated facts suitable for public consumption.

    What their book ‘Fool Me Twice’ does is first, show how Obama delivers his policy message. Second, which is then picked up by the msm media who through their talk shows promote his distortions and lies with their unsubstantiated opinions. Obama’s words/opinion/promises directly affect the media and journalists who disseminate information to the public.. Third, the authors themselves Elliot and Klein refute every sales technique in Obama’s quiver mainly his favorite vehicle of propaganda, the Talk Shows used to argue and peddle his lies. They do this with irrefutable, documented footnotes evidence to the contrary all listed at the back of the book including an index and glossary of acronyms.. If you are still having trouble understanding the meaning of what I’m saying, then I suggest either buy the book or continue going with what you don’t know.

    July 30th, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Good for you,Tim. I am doing everything in my power, and that is not much, to ensure victory for President Romney.

    I gave the locals, in Florida which will be a swing state, some marketing tips on how to ‘grab attention’; they like my “The Audacity of NOPE” cards on my caramel apples of the same name. I order myself some pink combat boots to wear at events and walking precincts. I hope that lead will get followers all over.

    The inspiration comes from the movie with Barbara Eden, “Your Mother Wears Combat Boots.” It is mainly to impress upon my children, grandchildren and such, that this mother is willing to do whatever it takes to combat this pending doom, for the sake of my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I plan to make scrapbook pages with photos of things I do in the good fight, for their future perusal. I am going t bling my pink combat boots out; and I suggested to the local headquarters that they do a FB or Twitter promotion with people posting photos when they see mothers in combat boots. I guarantee it is a workable marketing strategy………..so anyone else willing to participate in their local area? I am going to suggest we do a walk after the convention near the I4 corridor somewhere, as Florida is such an important swing state.

    Oh,and btw, they are having a birthday party for me next Saturday………nah, not really it is a Victory Party for those volunteering; and there will be food.

    I loved this article, Admin. And I think I love Lech Walensa, all over again. Godspeed President Romney.

  15. Admin, I do not know what I am doing to cause double posts; would you be kind enough to eliminate the duplicate? Thanks.

  16. When we first learned of security leaks from inside the White House, there were congressional calls for a special prosecutor. But Obama moved swiftly and appointed two US Attorneys to investigate. Obviously, these attorneys would be fair an impartial. Obviously the fact that one of them was an Obama bundler were not affect his neutrality. And obviously, this was not an effort by Obama to run out the clock.

    Shortly thereafter, Democratic campaign consultant and loyal American Pat Caddell went on FOX News, and would have nothing to do with this Dance of The Seven Veils. He said everyone in Washington knows who the leaker is. It is Tom Donolin, Obama’s National Security Advisor. As you can see he is the quintessential political hack, a former lobbyist for Fanny Mae and an Obama worshipper. He is close to a writer for NYT who has no qualms printing what he confides. He is also a friend of the pompus Brian Williams calls him the Big Irishman. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_E._Donilon

    Donolin experience on national security matters is bare as a goat’s ass and long as a whore’s dream. General Jones criticized him for his lack of credibilty with the military, the former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates told him to shut the fuck up on releasing confidential information to the press, and he has terrible relations with the people in his own department. His wife is Jill Biden’s chief of staff, his brother Tom is Biden’s attorney.

    Well, we now learn the leaks continue, despite the presence of two US Attorneys. Evidently, their investigation means nothing to him, because he knows the intent is not to feret out the truth, but to pre-empt the appointment of a special counsel, and to protect the big Irishman as he continues to leak classified information. The net effect is to compromise our human intelligence assets across the world and to disclose our internet hacking capabilities vis a vis Iran to China and Russia. This allows Obama to claim credit, which he always does. http://video.foxnews.com/v/1762426051001/top-lawmakers-call-for-independent-probe-into-intel-leaks

    As far as I am concerned, Donolin is no different than a spy. By leaking intelligence information to the NYT who prints whatever he tells them, he is giving that information to our enemies. Consequently, he deserves the same fate as a spy. No last cigarette or blindfold please. Just a military trial, a judgment of guilty and a 21 gun salute, from our boys in uniform.

  17. Yes, Mrs. Smith, Pink Wellies or any other shoe that resembles in the least a combat boot.

    If it is to be, it is up to me……….I take that quote (can’t recall the author) quite seriously. I know I risk embarrassing my kids, but that is what a mother is for!

    I just posted a portion of Admin’s article as a quote on my FB community…..there was one ‘like’ immediately, but will be interesting to see how many dissenters there are, although I must say I think most of the two dozen who are up the incumbent’s a$$ have already defriended me. What a loss.

  18. Just heard that Bill C. is giving the speech at the DNC for OTurd. Sorry Bill, not voting for that radical PO$, and really you shouldn’t be campaigning for him after all the racist nonsense they threw at you and Hillary in 2008.

  19. Here is the other “Big Irishman” who Brian Williams refers to. Big asshole. He was a Daschale man–and we all know what “Honest Tom Dachale” was about. He helped undermine Bill and Hillary. When Dachale received his walking papers from the people of South Dakota, this prick went to work for Ken Salazar, and from there to the same left wing think tank that Texiera hails from. He was tapped by Obama for a lesser role in the National Security Agency, headed up by General Jones (USMC)–a Hillary supporter. Together the two big Irishmen undermined Jones, and they also did their level best to undermine Hillary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denis_McDonough

    This guy is a dead ringer for Lurch The Butler on the Addams Family. Obviously they are related, and I have it on the best authority that they both drink human blood. But we must not discriminate against them on account of that disability. They are both vampires, so they cannot help it. Cheers.

    Tim, it is customary. To prove the point, you will see in the link below that former President Herbert Hoover–“the grand old man of the Republican Party” as he was billed, appeared at the 1960 Republican Convention in Chicago (where the dead voted for JFK thanks to the Daley Machine–plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose). It cannot be helped . . . . http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/280721-1

    Since it is customary, thus it cannot be helped. The media will try to pump it up. And each convention will give the nominee a bump. But the bump for Romney will be greater. To defend Obama is to defend an indefensible position. Everything he touches turns to shit.

    It is a shame that they could not whistle up President Reagan for the Republican Convention–that would bring the house down. Poppy is old and decrepit. He never was a party favorite. To generate the necessary enthusiam, I hope he selects Rubio, and they invite a large Cuban-American retinue.

  21. I have a bit of a different take on why Bill is doing the nomination speech. The DNC is in trouble money-wise. Hence why they shortened the convention. I wonder if they demanded the “Big Dawg” give the speech so folks would actually watch.

    Obama has been “tuned out” for months. That is why all his ads have had no effect on the polls. With Clinton speaking, the DNC may actually get some ad revenue to PAY for their convention.

    Just my un-conventional take. Yes, pun intended.

    Off-topic, I love the Olympic ad and especially seeing Kristi Yamaguchi, my fave Olympic skater of my life time.

  22. Harry Reid is a charmer

    Posted by William A. Jacobson Monday, July 30, 2012 at 2:16pm

    And you wonder why nothing gets done in the Senate and Republicans can’t even get votes on legislation or a budget?

    Via The Hill:

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has launched a blistering verbal assault against William Magwood, a Democratic member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission nominated by President Obama, calling him a “liar,” a “first-class rat,” and a “s**t-stirrer.”

    Reid, in an interview with The Huffington Post, also calls Magwood a “tool of the nuclear industry” and says he’s “unethical” and “incompetent.”

    Reid’s comments underscore the raw political emotions that have engulfed the NRC over the past year and have long surrounded battles over Yucca Mountain, the proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada that Reid strongly opposes.

    In the interview, Reid alleged that Magwood lied by indicating in a private meeting with the majority leader he would back efforts to shut down the Yucca project.

    “That man I will never, ever forget what a treacherous, miserable liar he is,” Reid said. He also took aim at Magwood’s accusations against former NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko.

    liar,” a “first-class rat,” and a “s**t-stirrer.”???? Look in the mirror Harry.

    That is exactly right. The challenge is to get more people to listen to this liar— do the only thing he does well: lie through his teeth.

  24. VotingHillary, have a laugh:

    http://www.gallup.com/poll/156362/Bill-Clinton-Popular.aspx

    In U.S., Bill Clinton at His Most Popular
    Solid majorities of whites, independents, and all age groups view him favorably

    Two-thirds of Americans — 66% — have a favorable opinion of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, tying his record-high favorability rating recorded at the time of his inauguration in January 1993. Clinton nearly returned to this level of popularity at two points in his second term, but has generally seen lower ratings, averaging 56% since 1993. [snip]

    Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating was also 66% in Gallup’s most recent measure. Obama himself is viewed favorably by 54% of Americans.

    Along with his record-high favorable rating, Clinton now has a near-record-low 28% unfavorable rating, according to the July 9-12 Gallup poll. The only times since 1993 that his unfavorable rating has been lower — 26% and 27% — were in January of his inaugural year.

    Clinton Broadly Liked, Including by Nearly Half of Republicans

    Clinton is viewed favorably today by most men, women, whites, and nonwhites, and across all major age groups. He also enjoys broad favorability among independents as well as Democrats. And while more Republicans view him unfavorably than favorably, it is by a relatively narrow 50% vs. 44% margin.

    We’ll discuss the damage Bill will do to Obama at a later date. We can’t wait to hear Bill once again speak about job creation when he was president.

  25. One more point VotingHillary. You are right that a large part of the reason for Bill speaking on Wednesday is the need for viewer eyeballs.

    But there is a snub to the invitation Bill received. Originally the NFL opening night was supposed to be Thursday September 6. But they moved the day of the opener in order not to inconvenience the golden calf. Guess when they moved the opener to? That’s right – Wednesday, August 5 – the night Bill is supposed to speak.

    If Bill gets sick that night and can’t attend no one will watch. No one will listen. The football game will get great ratings.

    Barbara Walters insults Queen Elizabeth: The View host launches outrageous attack on monarch’s ‘sour face’ and ’19th-century dress’ at Olympics opening ceremony

    Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2181381/Barbara-Walters-launches-attack-Queen-having-sour-face-dressing-like-19th-century-opening-ceremony.html#ixzz22C22qpl8

    Barbara Walters launched an outrageous attack on Queen Elizabeth II for having a ‘sour face’ and dressing ‘like something out of the nineteenth century’ during the Olympics opening ceremony.

    The host of ABC’s ‘The View’ made the disparaging remarks while discussing the London 2012 Games on air on Monday morning.

    While Walters acknowledged that the Queen had a sense of humour for her involvement in the James Bond sketch with Daniel Craig, she said she disapproved of her stern facial expression and choice of clothing.

    Let me tell you my thing with the Queen,’ Walters said. ‘I did agree that the whole thing with Daniel Craig was funny… but let me tell you my problem with her… this is a woman who does not know how to smile.’

    But her attack did not stop there. She added that Her Majesty did not change her facial expression while listening to children singing a rendition of ‘God Save the Queen’.

    Now, would it have killed this woman, this Queen, to go…’, she said while pulling a fake smile. ‘It’s such a sour face.’

    Co-host Whoopi Goldberg interjected, saying that the Queen’s lack of smile may have been down to ‘too tight a girdle’ or ‘shoes that didn’t fit’.

    Walters took Goldberg’s interruption as an opportunity to slate the Queen’s fashion sense. ‘She is 86, but she dresses like something out of the 19th century,’ she said.

    ‘The pink dress with the pink plume, but then the black gloves and the black bag… what does the Queen keep in that bag anyway? And black shoes with the pink dress.’

    Goldberg continued mocking the Queen by saying that perhaps her anger was down to her unflattering outfit. ‘She’s standing there thinking “I would not be wearing this”… She’s like “I’m gonna kick somebody’s ass.”‘

    Internet users were unimpressed by the television host’s insulting remarks. ‘Who is Barbara Walters to criticize the Queen for being stoic during the opening ceremony? Newsflash: The Queen does what she wants, biotch!’ one Twitter user posted.

    ‘Barbara Walters – Leave the #Queen alone. She has more class in her little finger than you have in your whole life. Have some respect,’ added another.

    ‘How insulting. I am embarassed as an American by your insensitive comments about a Lady who has been Queen for 50 years.’

    Twitter user ‏@Nclaudemelb posted: ‘@theviewtv barbara walters is an outdated & insensitive woman. Her comments about the Queen is disrespectful. Barbara should retire.’

  29. More headlines like this, please (from the Dailymail article linked above)

    Perhaps, I still think Bill C shouldn’t go, decline and say he’s too busy looking at the tapes of 2008 and the racist lies thrown at him and Hillary. He should not go in my opinion. These people are scum, utter scum.
    My only worry is will Bill vouching for OTurd convince any voters to say, hey since Bill is saying this Marxist Oturd is ok, I should vote for him, he’s got bill’s stamp of approval.

    I don’t like it one bit.

  32. How unfortunate they picked one with that name…….

    Univision’s Jordan Fabian reports on the keynote speaker at President Obama’s nominating convention — an up-and-coming Latino mayor from Texas:

    San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro will deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in September, becoming the first Latino ever to be chosen for the prestigious slot.

    Castro, 37, will address the crowd on the opening night of the convention on Tuesday Sept. 4 in Charlotte, N.C., where Democrats will officially renominate President Obama for a second term. Castro’s prime speaking spot is sure to stoke speculation about his political future, since Obama’s keynote address in 2004 helped launch his national political career. As is tradition, also speaking that night will be the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

    In a video announcement, Castro recalled being inspired by Obama’s speech four years ago, especially his “the promise of America where everyone has a decent shot at life.”

    The DNC keynote, of course, is where Obama catapulted into the national spotlight with an uplifting speech at the 2004 Democratic convention in Boston.

    http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/07/julian-castro-to-deliver-dnc-keynote-130589.html

    ……………………………….

    Blatant pitch for the latino vote, must be expecting Rubio as VP then.

  33. “especially his “the promise of America where everyone has a decent shot at life.””

    Oh yes, in fact, you can break the law, come into this country illegally and have a decent shot at life, even more so that the legal immigrants or even the citizens of this country!

  34. One day after Romney called Jerusalem the capital of Israel, the White House is claiming that he is wrong.

    http://weaselzippers.blogspot.com/2012/07/white-house-romney-is-wrong-jerusalem.html

    I know it is not just obama who refuses to admit that Jerusalem is the capital. Many democrats agree with him. I can’t understand this. Why are they so hostile towards Israel?

    Have democrats never heard of King David or do they just not believe in him? Maybe they are afraid of the PLO terrorists. Is that it?

    What the Hell is their problem?

  35. the White House is claiming that he is wrong.

    “We’ve got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America?” asks Ms. Warren, a professor at Harvard Law School who served in the Obama administration. “Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We’re at just 2.4%. We can do better.”

    Said that even all the “moderates” believe in the return of their “Mahdi” and the takeover of the world for Allah & Sharia law. It’s just that they differ when and how – the moderates believe they should not be violent now, but wait until this Mahdi shows up to do it.

    Meanwhile, they appear very peaceful, waiting like snakes to attack later. However, if they call “jihad”, they all must participate whether they like it or not. It should be “required reading” for all Americans….

    My only worry is will Bill vouching for OTurd convince any voters to say, hey since Bill is saying this Marxist Oturd is ok, I should vote for him, he’s got bill’s stamp of approval.

    I have to ask- Is there really such a thing as a Muslim converting to Christianity? For me, it’s hard to believe a Muslim raised in that culture as a devout Muslim facing death if he is caught by his ethic brothers would really and truly defy Islamic Law choosing death as his reward for his conversion? Where is his motivation?

  43. Admin, it would be great if you would post the video from Cavuto’s show yesterday and the two Chamber of Commerce men. The head of the Chamber of Commerce in the US and from Canada were being interviewed side by side. The man from Canada was doing a tiptoe through the tulips sort of word dance around so as not to offend America. But the contrast in the two Chamber of Commerces and their respective nations was dramatic. America looked stupid, is doing stupid things, and marching to the beat of a different drummer with what they are doing to business and the free enterprise market here in America. It made me wish I lived in Canada with the stark contrast that showed so clearly that the incumbent has had great success in destroying the business sector; and when the question of the Keystone Pipeline came up, I spewed my drink all over the place. And the host who subbed for Cavuto did great in asking just the right questions in just the right tone. The contrast was so very stark, and sickening. Now that should become a President Romney ad in some form.

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/rationing-begins-states-limiting-drug-prescriptions-medicaid-patients

    Rationing Begins: States Limiting Drug Prescriptions for Medicaid Patients

    Sixteen states have set a limit on the number of prescription drugs they will cover for Medicaid patients, according to Kaiser Health News.

    Seven of those states, according to Kaiser Health News, have enacted or tightened those limits in just the last two years.

    Medicaid is a federal program that is carried out in partnership with state governments. It forms an important element of President Barack Obama’s health-care plan because under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act–AKA Obamcare–a larger number of people will be covered by Medicaid, as the income cap is raised for the program.

    With both the expanded Medicaid program and the federal subsidy for health-care premiums that will be available to people earning up to 400 percent of the poverty level, a larger percentage of the population will be wholly or partially dependent on the government for their health care under Obamacare than are now.

    In Alabama, Medicaid patients are now limited to one brand-name drug, and HIV and psychiatric drugs are excluded.

    Illinois has limited Medicaid patients to just four prescription drugs as a cost-cutting move, and patients who need more than four must get permission from the state.

    Speaking on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Monday, Phil Galewitz, staff writer for Kaiser Health News, said the move “only hurts a limited number of patients.”

    “Drugs make up a fair amount of costs for Medicaid. A lot of states have said a lot of drugs are available in generics where they cost less, so they see this sort of another move to push patients to take generics instead of brand,” Galewitz said.

    “It only hurts a limited number of patients, ‘cause obviously it hurts patients who are taking multiple brand name drugs in the case of Alabama, Illinois. Some of the states are putting the limits on all drugs. It’s another place to cut. It doesn’t hurt everybody, but it could hurt some,” he added.

    Galewitz said the move also puts doctors and patients in a “difficult position.”

    “Some doctors I talked to would work with patients with asthma and diabetes, and sometimes it’s tricky to get the right drugs and the right dosage to figure out how to control some of this disease, and just when they get it right, now the state is telling them that, ‘Hey, you’re not going to get all this coverage. You may have to switch to a generic or find another way,’” he said.

    Arkansas, California, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and West Virginia have all placed caps on the number of prescription drugs Medicaid patients can get.

    “Some people say it’s a matter of you know states are throwing things up against the wall to see what might work, so states have tried, they’ve also tried formularies where they’ll pick certain brand name drugs over other drugs. So states try a whole lot of different things. They’re trying different ways of paying providers to try to maybe slow the costs down,” Galewitz said.

    “So it seems like Medicaid’s sort of been one big experiment over the last number of years for states to try to control costs, and it’s an ongoing battle, and I think drugs is just now one of the … latest issues. And it’s a relatively recent thing, only in the last 10 years have we really seen states put these limits on monthly drugs,” he added.

  46. Senate Committee Passes U.N. Treaty almost-

    by Karla Dial

    A controversial United Nations treaty drew one step closer to being ratified by the U.S. Senate last Thursday, when three Republicans crossed party lines to pass it out of the Foreign Relations Committee.

    Democrats and the Obama administration hope to see the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) reach the Senate floor for a vote by the end of this week, where it would require only 67 votes to legally bind the U.S. to international laws and standards.

    “Ostensibly, what we hear from the administration is that this will give us a seat at the table to negotiate with other countries on these issues, but there’s a lot more beneath the surface,” said Wesley Denton, a spokesman for Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, who is leading the fight against the treaty. “It puts the U.S. at a disadvantage by having international bureaucrats supersede our own laws.”

    On paper, the treaty would require other nations to live up to the U.S. standards laid out in the 22-year-old Americans With Disabilities Act. Advocates also claim it would prevent other nations from discriminating against disabled Americans when they travel overseas — a point others dispute, since the treaty includes no enforcement mechanisms.

    Opponents, including the Home School Legal Defense Association, have pointed out that the treaty would eclipse parents’ rights to direct their disabled children’s education.

    Also at issue in the committee vote Thursday was language concerning abortion. Panel Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., persuaded members to add language saying it won’t create any “new” abortion rights, but that disabled people will still be offered the full range of health services. At press time, it remained unclear whether that would include abortion — a concern that has caused three other nations to express reservations over signing the treaty, a Capitol Hill staff member told CitizenLink.

    The bigger picture, however, is that ratifying U.N. treaties subjugates the U.S. to international laws, while gaining very little from the exchange.

    “The globalist ideologues behind these treaties are either ignorant of or hostile to the universal human experience that problems are best solved by the people and institutions closest to them. So assured are these masters of their mandate to direct the lives and wealth of other people that they see their routine failures to do so efficiently at the local, state and national level merely as reason to ascend to new heights of international command and control,” DeMint wrote in an op-ed with Sen. James Inhofe published by The Washington Times on July 25.

    “It is a backdoor effort to impose extreme liberal policies on Americans who would never vote for them if given the choice … The debates about these treaties are not about the legalistic minutiae they contain but the sovereign citizenry they threaten.”

  47. Mrs. Smith – basturds [sic] keeping gun control on life support.
    Here’s another low – but Romney can handle it. A big overreach by press and WH which has assumed role of pundit for Romney trip:

    Romney’s traveling press secretary curses at reporters during Poland visit – The Hill’s Video
    The traveling press secretary for Mitt Romney’s campaign cursed at reporters on Tuesday who were attempting to ask the presumptive GOP nominee about some of his missteps during his foreign policy trip. The incident occurred as Romney made his way to his vehicle after visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw. Reporters from the traveling press corps accompanying Romney attempted to shout questions at the candidate, who ignored their calls.
    But when reporters began shouting questions about whether gaffes — including comments about Britian’s Olympic preparedness and Israeli culture that leaders in the United Kingdom and Palestine denounced publicly — had overshadowed the foreign trip, traveling press secretary Rick Gorka admonished them to “show some respect.”
    A reporter from the New York Times then pointed out that the traveling press corps had had few opportunities to ask questions during the trip; Romney has only answered three questions during his week-long swing from the pack of reporters traveling with him.

    “Kiss my ass,” Gorka responded. “This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”
    Shortly thereafter, Gorka told a second reporter to “shove it.”
    Gorka later apologized to reporters for his reaction.
    Still, the dustup was evidence that the overseas trip — expected to boost the presumptive Republican nominee’s foreign policy bona fides — may have gotten out of hand.
    On Monday, an aide to President Obama’s re-election campaign questioned Romney’s “preparedness” after what she called a “series of fumbles” during his three-nation overseas trip.
    “He’s now been to two countries and he’s had two countries where he has made a series of fumbles,” deputy campaign press secretary Jen Psaki said.
    “He’s been fumbling the foreign policy football from country to country. And there’s a threshold question that he has to answer for the American people and that’s whether he’s prepared to be commander-in-chief…. This raises some questions about his preparedness,” she said.
    The Romney campaign has pointed to the candidate’s warm reception by Israeli political leaders and unofficial endorsement from former Polish president and Nobel Prize winner Lech Walesa as evidence that the trip has been a success, despite the criticism from the Obama campaign.

    Obama donates to himself

    President Obama has given $5,000 to his own reelection campaign, an official confirms to POLITICO.

    In an email to supporters this morning, Obama said that he had given to his own reelection campaign for the first time as a symbolic gesture.

    “On its own, what I gave won’t be enough to surmount the unprecedented fundraising we’ve seen on the other side, both from our opponent’s campaign and from the outside groups and special interests supporting him,” Obama wrote. “But we have always believed that there’s nothing we can’t do when we all pitch in. That includes me.”

    While there are no limits on a candidate donating to his or her own campaign, Obama’s donation is the federal maximum that an individual can give to a campaign (of course, the ‘real’ maximum is much higher — and the Obama has taken donations form as high as $75,000 by combining their fundraising effort with the Democratic National Committee and state parties).

    (Also on POLITICO: Lies the parties are telling themselves)

    Chicago has embarked on an all-out fundraising push in advanced of the July fundraising deadline — attempting to keep pace with a Mitt Romney fundraising operation that has outpaced them two months in a row.

    “Over the past two months, we have been outraised by our opponents. They’ve used that advantage to distort the truth and mislead people, over and over, on TV and the radio in battleground states,” Obama wrote in a different email to supporters. “Tonight is one of the most critical fundraising deadlines we’ll face.”

    Critics don’t buy Elizabeth Warren’s biz-friendly spiel

    Elizabeth Warren’s new claim that Wall Street execs are behind her because they believe she’ll “save capitalism” had conservatives rolling in the aisles yesterday, saying the outlandish line is as bad as President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” gaffe.

    The Democratic Senate challenger, already under fire for her own remark that “there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own,” made her claim that she is a business champion in an interview with the National Journal published Sunday.

    “Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism. I believe in capitalism, and I understand there have to be rules. And they have to be consistently enforced,’ ” Warren told the National Journal.

    “She certainly has a high opinion of herself,” chortled Republican strategist Rob Gray, adding, “It’s not one that most people who started their business from the ground up would agree with.”

    “Nice try, but to make it sound as though government is business-friendly is laughable,” snarked Fran Wendel-boe, a New Hampshire Republican operative who noted that voters nationwide have bristled at Obama and Warren’s claims that business owners can’t succeed without government help.

    “Obviously she’s trying to turn it around, but I don’t think voters or small businesses are going to buy that,” Wendelboe said. “She opened a door she shouldn’t have opened.”

This plan led Obama to hold more fundraisers than his past five predecessors combined and left him open to constant attacks from Republicans who unfailingly point out that while Obama has attended more than 120 fundraisers in the past six months, he has not met once with his jobs council. Obama has nuzzled Hollywood heavyweights, Wall Street financiers, same-sex marriage enthusiasts and other rich liberal groups day after day.

    Unfortunately for Democrats, Obama’s unprecedented fundraising push has not kept pace with his unprecedented campaign-spending rate.

Your nation has moved from a state monopoly over the economy, price controls and severe trade restrictions to a culture of entrepreneurship, greater fiscal responsibility and international trade,” said Romney, praising Poland’s economic revival.

    In comments aimed squarely at Polish Catholic voters back home, Romney promised that “Poland has no greater friend and ally than the people of the United States.” He also had high praise for one of Poland’s most famous sons, Pope John Paul II.

    “John Paul II understood that a nation is not a flag or a plot of land,” Romney said. “It is a people — a community of values. And the highest value Poland honors — to the world’s great fortune — is man’s innate desire to be free.”

Forget the bullsh-t media spin trying to drive home every little supposed mistake they’re makin’ – so far the Romney team is winning this thing. But the real race hasn’t quite started yet so they gotta be ready for the real show. That’s coming up next month. That’s when the real punches start.

She knows…by then she is realizing the Romney team has just initiated a major mind-f-ck onto the Obama campaign. And THAT is what has got her so pissed. The woman does not like to be messed with – by ANYONE.

    So she is laying into Obama…basically that he better bring his A game to this…that it’s all bets are off now and they got a real race on their hands. She’s screaming at him. At everyone. It’s a one on one conversation…but everyone on board can hear it. Even over the engines. At least in the back. Maybe not up front with the press corp…but everyone in the back can hear it. She is blasting him – the campaign…she insults the voters…she goes on and on about the economy. How they should have done something about the economy by now. And then she rips into the Chamber of Commerce. For a good ten minutes. How they have always been out to get them. How they are run by one of “THEM”.

    UM: Them?

    WHI: She said they…the Chamber…it was “just like Chicago”. The f-cking Irish. Just like Chicago. There’s a back story to all that…the Daley’s…her and them go way back. And it didn’t end well….you know all of that. When Bill Daley left…that war they had between them.

    …Look, the woman….Jarrett…she’s an outright racist. She really is. And it’s a racism that is found all through the Obama administration. That’s nothing new there…anyone who takes the time to look and add it all up…the DOJ…Holder…that’s all there. But I want to just focus on those internals and how they messed with the entire Obama campaign. How they are STILL messing with that campaign.

    UM: Go ahead then – this is fascinating stuff.

    WHI: It gets so much better…we are getting to the point where I really gotta tip my hat to Romney on this. Like I said…reminds me a lot of the Reagan team. Somethin’ they would have done.

    …So we got Jarrett going crazy. We got Obama digesting what she is screaming at him. We got campaign staff overhearing all that. We got Plouffe scrambling to initiate his own internal in that state to corroborate the numbers that they THINK they stole from Romney. We got Axelrod playing dumb…the whole operation is getting’ its ass kicked by that polling data from that one swing state.

    But all of this gets better…the real payoff is coming. You see, this all goes down early July…just after the holiday, right? That’s the timeline of all of this. Hits the fan over the course of about a week…week and a half.

    And then what?

    UM: You’re asking me?

    WHI: Yeah – and then what? What happens to the Obama campaign right after? Think about it…a couple weeks after the 4th of July holiday…what does Obama say?

    UM: …Bloody hell.

    WHI: (BIG SMILE) Now you’re seein’ it. Romney got inside his head – Obama is rattled. The entire campaign is rattled. And Obama goes out and says what? You go ahead and tell me for a change. What does Obama say not two weeks after the Romney team slips that internal polling data over to them?

    UM: “You didn’t build that.”

    WHI: And that’s how you play smashmouth politics son. A mental castration of a sitting president. And the Romney team just did it as good as I’ve EVER seen it done right there. And the decision to make sure that polling data made its way back to Obama…that had to come from Mitt Romney himself. And when he did that…he balled up his fist and smacked Obama right up in his face. Right into that fake ass toothy fool grin of his. He let him know this ain’t gonna be 2008. This is gonna be a war. Barack Obama…Valerie Jarrett…Plouffe…Axelrod…they all got their asses kicked on this one.

    =================

    Well, “giving up our sovereignty” assumes fact not in evidence — as does the claim that I support the whole treaty (insufficient data).

    But people concerned about service dogs need to keep an eye on the ADA protections of service dogs, which some US interests are trying to limit and dilute — by working toward requiring expensive certification of the dog. Complicated services such as blind guide dogs and deaF hearing dogs may require long training, but the life-saving services such as medical alert require much less training, as these are functions that dogs tend to do on their own if encouraged.

    BRIT HUME: The convention role being given Bill Clinton is proof that President Obama is in deep trouble and he and his political handlers know it.

    Polls continue to show the race tied or Mr. Obama slightly ahead. But other surveys point distinctly in another direction. One out today from the Hill newspaper gives Mitt Romney an edge with voters on three key qualities: sharing their values, being a stronger leader and being more honest and trustworthy. What’s more, 93 percent of voters in this poll said policies and competence were more important than likablity, that’s an area, of course, where Mr. Obama has enjoyed a large advantage.

    Add to that the Rasmussen survey in which voters by 62 percent to 30 said economic growth was more important to them than economic fairness. Fairness, of course, is a major theme of Mr. Obama and his party. With his attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record and his repeated and unsubtle appeals to elements of his party’s base, Mr. Obama is clearly shooting for a big Democratic turnout in November.

    But Gallup reports that the number of Democrats who say they are more enthusiastic about voting this year is at 39 percent, down from 61 percent four years ago. 51 percent of Republicans, meanwhile, said they are more enthusiastic this year, that is up from 35 per cent in 2008.When you put all this together with the continuing bad news on the economy, you know why Mr. Obama is suddenly reaching out to Bill Clinton.

    This is a distress call.

  76. http://dailycaller.com/2012/07/31/dick-morris-clinton-is-going-to-cast-his-ballot-for-mitt-romney/

    On Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Monday night, Dick Morris predicted that his old boss, former President Bill Clinton, will work behind the scenes to undermine President Barack Obama’s reelection bid.

    There has been a well-documented history of tension between Obama and Clinton going back to the sometimes racially charged 2008 Democratic primary. And according to Morris, the author of “Screwed!”, the two men’s relationship remains strained to this day.

    “I guarantee you, Sean, based on what I have heard from third parties or I have spoken to, that William Jefferson Clinton is going to cast his ballot for Mitt Romney,” Morris said. “However, he’s going to open his mouth for Barack Obama because his wife is hostage. They have her under lock and key as Secretary of State, and he is scared that Obama will lose and blame him if he undermines Obama. So he will do everything he asks him to do, and then he will jab him whenever he can.”

  77. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/romney-s-warsaw-speech_649146.html

    Mitt Romney’s stop in Jerusalem will probably remain the highlight of his foreign trip, but his eloquent and powerful speech today in Warsaw deserves more notice than it will probably get. In his remarks, Romney suggests a theme for his trip as a whole and a rationale for visiting the three nations he chose to visit, and sketches the national qualities he finds worthy of praise.

    I reproduce the speech below, so you can read the whole text. But I’d call attention to these passages, near the top of the speech, as particularly noteworthy:

    “I began this trip in Britain and end it here in Poland: the two bookends of NATO, history’s greatest military alliance that has kept the peace for over half a century. While at 10 Downing Street I thought back to the days of Winston Churchill, the man who first spoke of the Iron Curtain that had descended across Europe. What an honor to stand in Poland, among the men and women who helped lift that curtain.

    “After that stay in England, I visited the State of Israel – a friend of your country and mine. It’s been a trip to three places far apart on the map. But for an American, you can’t get much closer to the ideals and convictions of my own country. Our nations belong to the great fellowship of democracies. We speak the same language of freedom and justice. We uphold the right of every person to live in peace.

    “Yesterday, I saw the memorial at Westerplatte and the gate at the Gdansk Shipyard, where Polish citizens stood with courage and determination against daunting odds. And today, on the eve of the 68th anniversary of this city’s uprising against the Nazis, I will pay tribute at the monument to that historic struggle. Over 200,000 Poles were killed in those weeks, and this city was nearly destroyed. But your enduring spirit survived.

    “Free men and women everywhere, whether they have been here or not, already know this about Poland: In some desperate hours of the last century, your people were the witnesses to hope, led onward by strength of heart and faith in God. Not only by force of arms, but by the power of truth, in villages and parishes across this land, you shamed the oppressor and gave light to the darkness….

    “And here, in 1979, a son of Poland, Pope John Paul the Second, spoke words that would bring down an empire and bring freedom to millions who lived in bondage. ‘Be not afraid’—those words changed the world.”

    It’s striking that in these remarks, Romney chooses to speak not as a “citizen of the world” but as a citizen of the free world. He suggests that American exceptionalism isn’t a basis for some sort of arrogant disdain for the rest of the world, but rather provides the grounds for a duty to stand with others around the world fighting for freedom. And he explains that, in the case of Poland but also beyond the case of Poland, the spirit of liberty can be allied with the spirit of faith, and the courage of rebellion with the power of truth.

    It would be an irony if, on a foreign trip which most of his campaign regarded as a diversion from the allegedly all-important and all-consuming topic of jobs, jobs, jobs, Mitt Romney found his voice to speak about the deeper issue at stake in the 2012 election and beyond, the question of what America stands for and what America means.

    Here’s the full text:

  78. @admin

    I’m sure that clueless back at the WH will not have one inkling about what that speech means.

    Is there any way to send an email to admin?

  79. UM

    WHI: And that’s how you play smashmouth politics son. A mental castration of a sitting president. And the Romney team just did it as good as I’ve EVER seen it done right there. And the decision to make sure that polling data made its way back to Obama…that had to come from Mitt Romney himself. And when he did that…he balled up his fist and smacked Obama right up in his face. Right into that fake ass toothy fool grin of his. He let him know this ain’t gonna be 2008. This is gonna be a war. Barack Obama…Valerie Jarrett…Plouffe…Axelrod…they all got their asses kicked on this one.

    Romney done good…

    We needed some good inside news.

  80. I’ve changed the title to this post a bit-

    The original title omits Obama’s ownership of these invasive illegal criminals. If Obama wants them; then he has to taken responsibility for them! That Simple!

    Obama’s Illegals Charged with 19 Murders, 142 Sex Crimes..

    After hundreds of innocent Mexicans died as a result of the Obama Administration flooding that country with thousands guns through the cynical and politically motivated Fast and Furious program, it’s only fair for the White House to allow Mexican citizens to wreak havoc and misery here in America:

    The Obama administration released illegal immigrants who went on to commit more crimes, including charges of 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the House Judiciary Committee said in a report Tuesday.

    All told, the nearly 47,000 illegal immigrants the administration was notified of but declined to deport between 2008 and 2011 under its Secure Communities program had a recidivism rate of 16 percent, the committee said.

    They were just part of the nearly 160,000 immigrants — most of them here legally — who were flagged by Secure Communities during the three year period but who were either not eligible to be deported or who the administration decided to release. Those immigrants went on to be charged in nearly 60,000 more crimes, according to the committee and the Congressional Research Service, which issued a report on the matter.

    “No Coordination Whatsoever Between Harry Reid’s “Investor” Story And A New Obama Ad Calling Romney a Felon on Taxes”

    Again, with the taxes?!?!? Where the hell are Barry’s college records and why did he and Meeechelle both lose their law licenses??

  82. Reid should be put out to pasture. Along with Pelosi. They are an embarrassment. I can’t believe Reid has been allowed to go 3 years without putting up a budget. Disgraceful.

  83. Whoa. Is it true blacks may go against the POS over his gay marriage “evolution?” A group of black pastors say the chick-fil-a flap discriminates against christians.

    I heard part of this PC on the 6pm news. The pastor was talking about BO having alienated many AA’s.

    The President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors says supporters of traditional marriage are facing the same discrimination that blacks faced during the civil rights movement.

    “Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken – they don’t want them in their cities,” Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.

    “It’s a disgrace. It’s the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant, they didn’t want us staying in their hotels. Now they’re saying, because we take a Christian position, they don’t want us in their cities.”

  84. Basil, I just read how Harry Reid used Romney “dead father” as Reid put it to attack Romney, these people have no, none, nada an ounce of shame. Absolutely disgusting. Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, disgusting. Hard for me to believe this is the same party that JFK belonged to.

  85. What a fking moron chris matthews is… I remember so many times MSDNC and he in ’08 called Bill and Hillary a racist over and over again. Now, oh, he’s so good. I remember they amde a comment about “taking Hillary to the shed” or something along those lines… the “fairytale” talking point, over and over… “Bill’s a racist”.

  86. Not surprising, and yet so sad to read this. I know many small business types who would not have started their business in the environment that this country has now turned into, too many regulations, too hard to get capital… plus a president and far lefties berating and mocking people who want to work hard, risk so much of their own well being, and build something, which OTurd says “you didn’t build that!”.

    “America may be going out of business when it comes to starting new businesses, according to a recent report.

    The study—from the non-profit New America Foundation—argues the U.S. is seriously in danger of losing its entrepreneurial spirit because the number of small business created has been declining since the 1970s.

    “We see entrepreneurship declining per person and what figures there are have over-counted the number of small businesses,” Khan says”

  87. ObamaCare’s new mandate cuts funding for Special Needs Children- Here is the poster boy born with Special needs. Had his mother not had the help and support of her Health Care Insurance coverage, we would not be celebrating today with Michael Phelps and his family as The Greatest ALL TIME Olympian in Olympic history! He has become a living Legend!
    _________________

    Michael Phelps becomes most-decorated Olympian

    Phelps has 15 golds in his career, six more than anyone else, to go along with two silvers and two bronzes. Latynina won nine golds, five silvers and four bronzes from 1956-64.

    “You are now a complete legend,” the public-address announced bellowed, accompanied by the Foo Fighters’ song “Best of You.”

    Phelps still has three more races to go before he retires, three more chances to establish a mark that will be hard for anyone to touch.

    “It has been a pretty amazing career,” he said, “but we still have a couple races to go.”

    Congratulations Michael!

    ……………..

    This from Phelps hometown:

    Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz:

    “While the entire world was cheering on Michael Phelps this afternoon, all of us in Baltimore County take very special pride in all that Michael has accomplished. Earning 19 Olympic medals is such an amazing accomplishment that it is actually hard to imagine. Like DiMaggio and Cal, Michael has set a record that may never be broken. We are certainly willing to share this phenomenal young man with his fans across the nation, but in our hearts he will always be Baltimore County’s hometown hero. Congratulations Michael. We can’t wait to honor you when you return.”

  88. Many many congratulations to Micheal Phelps. I have been following the races where he’s swimming, what an amazing talent and his work ethic for the training is to be commended.

    And oh yea, HE earned it. Not the swimming pool he might have trained in.

  89. …last night I was thinking about the irony…that Mr “turn the page on the Clintons” himself, O, now finds the need to depend on Bill Clinton to save his sorry, failed presidency…BO, who could not wait his turn, and stand out of the way for Hillary to lead…perhaps even at her side…and then with clear sailing and experience…he would still have his shot at the Presidency…

    …but no, O had to label Bill and Hillary racists as anyone else that ever dares stand in O’s way is labeled…and on top of that O denegrated the Clintons…they were the past…O declared he was what the country needed….the Clintons were too ‘polarzing’…oh that one is rich…but now O needs to be in the shadow of BC…now O needs the Clinton success, popularity and star power to rub off on him…he needs to try to “steal” the Clinton economy as the basis for his running for a second term…

    O now wants to stand next to the man that is larger than life and so powerful that even his foes and worst critics have had to admit and relent that BC is a force of positive nature…

    oh the irony…so as i was thinking about all that I drifted off into a fantasy…

    there we are at the Democratic Convention…and the star of the show comes to center state…BC is introduced as the most successful two term democratic president in our lifetime and the accolades continue describing all his successes and the thriving economy and surplus he left to the President that followed him…

    …and then Bill begins to speak…and he reiterates what has been said…and goes on by telling us how he achieved that success…even WITH a republican congress… and then he begins to speak about O and his first term…

    …and Bill bites his lower lip as he is known to do…and as Bill continues describing O’s first term, he pauses…and says…

    I came here to nominate O for a second term as President, however as I stand here before you, my fellow Americans, I cannot in good conscience go through with it…one year is enough…so, it is with great pride, confidence and pleasure that I nominate Hillary Clinton as your nominee…the stakes are too high…the country needs her and we cannot waste another day without her…

    …and the whole stadium erupts in echoing claps and screams and hugs…Carville is going nuts…even the old Clintonites in the O camp start clapping and jumping for joy…

    …and O and MO are left standing alone…MO with that scowl on her face and her eyebrows raised to her hairline…and O with that glare in his eyes…

    …and Hillary walks out from the shadows to accept the nomination…

    *******************

    heck, it was a good fantasy, including the delegates who had finally come home…

  90. …and Hillary walks out from the shadows to accept the nomination…

    ====================

    Ooh, lovely fantasy!

    Those who do go to the con, can at least interrupt his real speech at strategic moments with “Hillary! Hillary!”

  91. Great Gov Palin interview on Greta. She smacked down repub establishment, including Cheney. Poor woman, these establishment repubs don’t have a clue how much she’s helped stop or at least slow down the OTurd.

  92. S, if Bill does that, it will truly be a miracle, one can only hope.

    If not, hopefully Bill will slyly go after Oturd in his speech.

  93. “She is not a team player IMO.”

    Well, she’s also constantly and openly insulted by the establishment repubs like Cheney, I’m pretty amazed the woman still keeps working along for consitutional candidates in spite of idiots like Cheney and other establishment repub always insulting her.

    also, why is pat buchanan on Fox now a days? cannot stand this man. He makes sense many times, then he goes off the deep end erasing all the sense he made previously.

  94. Mitt Romney responds:

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/312830/culture-does-matter-mitt-romney

    Culture Does Matter
    By Mitt Romney

    During my recent trip to Israel, I had suggested that the choices a society makes about its culture play a role in creating prosperity, and that the significant disparity between Israeli and Palestinian living standards was powerfully influenced by it. In some quarters, that comment became the subject of controversy.

    But what exactly accounts for prosperity if not culture? In the case of the United States, it is a particular kind of culture that has made us the greatest economic power in the history of the earth. Many significant features come to mind: our work ethic, our appreciation for education, our willingness to take risks, our commitment to honor and oath, our family orientation, our devotion to a purpose greater than ourselves, our patriotism. But one feature of our culture that propels the American economy stands out above all others: freedom. The American economy is fueled by freedom. Free people and their free enterprises are what drive our economic vitality.

    The Founding Fathers wrote that we are endowed by our Creator with the freedom to pursue happiness. In the America they designed, we would have economic freedom, just as we would have political and religious freedom. Here, we would not be limited by the circumstance of birth nor directed by the supposedly informed hand of government. We would be free to pursue happiness as we wish. Economic freedom is the only force that has consistently succeeded in lifting people out of poverty. It is the only principle that has ever created sustained prosperity. It is why our economy rose to rival those of the world’s leading powers — and has long since surpassed them all.

    The linkage between freedom and economic development has a universal applicability. One only has to look at the contrast between East and West Germany, and between North and South Korea for the starkest demonstrations of the meaning of freedom and the absence of freedom.

    Israel is also a telling example. Like the United States, the state of Israel has a culture that is based upon individual freedom and the rule of law. It is a democracy that has embraced liberty, both political and economic. This embrace has created conditions that have enabled innovators and entrepreneurs to make the desert bloom. In the face of improbable odds, Israel today is a world leader in fields ranging from medicine to information technology.

    As the case of Israel makes plain, building a free society is not a simple task. Rather, it is struggle demanding constant courage and sacrifice. Even here in the United States, which from our inception as a nation has been blessed with freedom, we faced monumental challenges in harmonizing our ideals with our institutions. We fought a bloody civil war against slavery and it took a nonviolent civil-rights movement to bring political and social equality to all Americans. In these epic struggles we changed our “culture” and vastly improved it.

    I have just returned from a trip abroad. I visited three lands — Israel, Poland, and Great Britain — which are defined by their respective struggles for freedom. I met with some of the greatest heroes of those struggles. I am always glad to return to American soil. On this occasion, I am only strengthened in my conviction that the pursuit of happiness is not an American right alone. Israelis, Palestinians, Poles, Russians, Iranians, Americans, all human beings deserve to enjoy the blessings of a culture of freedom and opportunity.

  95. Could the ones of us on here who really love this country develop a strategy for the general election? I have been thinking about jbstonesfan’s remark about being ‘disappointed’ that it is an uphill battle to have an influence on the Jewish constituency that are liberal; and myself am pretty nauseous about the mindset of what I believed otherwise to be good people on this Freedom of Speech and Religion thing with CFA. This is reflected precisely in one comment from FB: “Your a wonderful person and a wonderful mother **** ♥ Seeing other Christians stand in line to basically persecute others wrongly under the guise of “freedom of speech” not only appalls me but breaks my heart :(”

    This was a redundant theme yesterday and there were some heated comments. Is it not obvious to the world that they are criticizing ‘others’ for standing in judgment, when ‘they’ are standing in judgment of others, but are too blind to see it; and will not comprehend it even when it is pointed out to them. And these are voters.

    What can we do that is positive to at least attempt to do correct the err? They all seem to go to the usual Soros funded sites and wiki when quoting with Huff n Puff being the favored….and evidently read their scriptures but without any comprehension. This is the same area that has just received the news that finally broke on the news (in a sweet watered down version) that the area sons were allegedly molested by a pillar of the community – likely for the better part of five decades; but not a peep on that issue. They are so misguided. Go figure.

    This would help me and I am sure it would maybe help jb, and possibly others.
