Throw The Bum Out!

Hillary Clinton 2016 take note: The Obama coalition is not the way to win elections. For years, in several multi-part series of articles we have explained why this is. This year, today particularly, the evidence mounts that we have been correct in our analysis despite the results of the presidential elections in 2008 and 2012. Hillary Clinton 2016 take note real closely.

The white working class hates ObamaCare. Senior citizens who witnessed Obama loot half a trillion dollars from Medicare in order to finance the ObamaCare health scam hate ObamaCare too. Now the young are forming a coalition with the white working class and senior citizens to THROW THE BUM OUT!

We know Obama and ObamaCare’s a bust. Hooray! Welcome to our world-view millennials:

“Havard’s Institute of Politics just released a devastating study showing a massive drop in support among Millennials for Obama and Obamacare.

Bottom line is that Millennials don’t like Republicans, but for the first time they don’t like Obama and Democrats almost as much.

Here is the key finding in the Executive Summary (at pp. 5-6):

Additionally, we found that a majority (52%) of 18- to 29- year olds would choose to recall all members of Congress if it were possible, 45 percent would recall their member of Congress (45% would not) and approximately the same number indicate that they would recall President Obama (47% recall, 46% not recall).

“THROW THE BUM OUT!” So say we all.

Say, didn’t Obama attend Harvard as a legacy because his sperm donor dad went there to further donate sperm to chucklehead undergrads? It’s sort of sweet justice that the bad news for Barack comes from a Harvard poll: Millennial meltdown for Obama

“National Journal’s Ron Fournier breaks down the numbers, but the embedded graphic tells the whole story. The red bars indicating opposition dominate all the way down among voters 18-29 years of age, which had been the Democrats’ core for activists and enthusiasm. Obama scores badly across the board on issues, from the economy that’s not producing jobs for younger voters (33/61) to the federal budget deficit that they’ll have to own later (28/66).

The biggest issue right now, though, is ObamaCare, which ended up as law in large part due to the efforts of this demographic. It matters little whether pollsters call it the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare, as the disapproval of it is almost identical either way (39/56 and 38/57, respectively). On health care policy, Obama gets a disastrous 34/61 approval on an issue that Democrats have owned for decades, especially among this demographic. [snip]

This is not just a momentary disaster for Barack Obama, but a generational disaster for Democrats. It also raises a big question in the midterms: where will Democrats get their volunteers and activists? It also raises an even bigger question for ObamaCare, as these millenials aren’t going to rush into the economic vise of the exchanges. And that will only get worse as the mandate rolls forward.”


Millennials Abandon Obama and Obamacare

A majority of America’s youngest adults would vote to recall the president.

Young Americans are turning against Barack Obama and Obamacare, according to a new survey of millennials, people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are vital to the fortunes of the president and his signature health care law.

The most startling finding of Harvard University’s Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25–the youngest millennials–would favor throwing Obama out of office.

The survey, part of a unique 13-year study of the attitudes of young adults, finds that America’s rising generation is worried about its future, disillusioned with the U.S. political system, strongly opposed to the government’s domestic surveillance apparatus, and drifting away from both major parties. [snip]

“Millennials are losing touch with government and its programs because they believe government is losing touch with them.”

The results blow a gaping hole in the belief among many Democrats that Obama’s two elections signaled a durable grip on the youth vote.

Who wouda’ thunk it? Young people changing their minds? What a concept!

The change to thinking by millennials spells disaster and doom for Obama Dimocrats, Obama, and ObamaCare:

“According to the poll, 57 percent of millennials disapprove of Obamacare, with 40 percent saying it will worsen their quality of care and a majority believing it will drive up costs. Only 18 percent say Obamacare will improve their care. Among 18-to-29-year-olds currently without health insurance, less than one-third say they’re likely to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges. [snip]

The largest and growing segment is among independents, 41 percent of the total.

Democrats’ advantage among young voters is fading. [snip]

Young blacks say they are much less likely to vote in the 2014 midterm election than they were in November 2009, signaling a worrisome level of engagement among a key Democratic constituency.

In addition to health care, domestic spying is an issue that puts Obama on the wrong side of the rising generation.

THROW THE BUM OUT! to Mars or someplace else. Anywhere else, preferably the blood stink stockyards of Chicago.

In The World Series: The Hillary Clinton Coalition Versus The Barack Obama Coalition, Part III we wrote:

“3. The Obama coalition is dead. The Obama coalition is an historic mistake by Democrats. The Big Blogs are purposefully trying to confuse the “Obama coalition” with the Democratic “base”. As we have repeatedly written the Obama coalition was akin to the demographics of a situation comedy. As spelled out by David Axelrod and Donna Brazile the Obama coalition “is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don’t have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics”. According to Axelrod “The white working class has gone to the Republican nominee for many elections” so it was time to dump them for the young, the black (er “urban”) and the well-off white liberals in the suburbs. Old people and lunch-bucket Joe and Jane (the white working class) could go to hell with grandma and grandpa along with all those old “controversies” of the boomers. Yesterday grandma and grandpa and the lunch bucket working class, as well as the boomers, told the Obama Dimocrats to “go to hell”.

4. The Hillary Clinton coalition forged by FDR is the winning coalition. Obama and his Dimocrats, unable to win white working class votes created the situation comedy coalition to avoid working for white working class votes. As we wrote repeatedly, Obama had a chance to appeal to these voters (like John Kennedy did) in West Virginia and Kentucky but Obama wrote these voters off.”

In Woodstock Nation: Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy, Part III we addressed the folly of dumping senior citizens from the FDR Democratic Party coalition in favor of the young. The “youth vote” added to the senior vote would be smart because we believe that politics is about addition not subtraction. But Obama strategists wanted the youth vote and willingly dumped seniors. The results were that in 2008, 2010, and 2012 seniors voted with the GOP – and seniors vote in every election.

We emphasized in all our longest running series on the Barack Obama coalition, “Mistake In ’08” that the “youth vote” is ephemeral because this cohort is growing and learning and does not build allegiances to brands easily or quickly. To build a political party on this sand was and is folly:

To build a party on ephemeral first time voters and young voters is foolishness. That foolishness is akin to a store which sells baby clothes only to virgins – there might be some curiosity value and foot traffic but the business model will not work.

Only now does the clucking clown of the “creative class” at NothingLeft realize the foolishness of party building based on a group of political virgins and soon to grow up and change their views young people. That’s not to say that those groups should not be courted, but to build a party on a one time only group of voters is monumental foolishness. [snip]

And even if Obama can re-energize his base in 2012, what then? His is a uniquely personal coalition, and whomever comes next is going to have a hard time filling the shoes of a rather unique candidate. If the damage done to other parts of the Clinton coalition is permanent, then the Democrats are going to have to make some major changes to retain their electoral coalition.” [snip]

Trende intelligently notes that if the Clinton coalition is permanently damaged and not restored, the Dimocrats are doomed for sure and the hope to restore the once great Democratic Party of FDR and Hillary Clinton will be doomed as well.”

We wrote that in 2010. Since then Barack Obama profited personally in 2008 and 2012 from the Barack Obama cult coalition which mimicked the demographics of piffle TV shows like “Friends”. Aided by reliable Obama allies – Deceit and Flim-flam – Barack Obama won his elections in 2008 and 2012 even as the political party he figureheads is fading away. Today the “youth vote” millennials joined senior citizens and the white working class in saying “THROW THE BUM OUT!”.

THROW THE BUM OUT! He’s a joke:

The joke’s on the party that brung him:

“Wise Beyond Their Years

The young won’t show up for Obamacare.

Former president Bill Clinton said recently that Obamacare “only works .  .  . if young people show up.” But it won’t work—because young people won’t show up. Obamacare gives them too many reasons not to do so.

One reason is that Obamacare makes things more expensive for them. [snip]

Another reason the young are unlikely to show up in sufficient numbers is that Obamacare gives many of them an easy out: They can stay on their parents’ insurance free of charge until they’re 26. As for the rest, with the elimination of preexisting conditions as a barrier to buying health insurance, many will choose to go without coverage until they’re sick or injured.

In other words, Obama-care makes insurance more costly while simultaneously making it less necessary—especially for the young. [snip]

Under Obamacare, there is more incentive for previously insured young people to decide to go without insurance than for previously uninsured young people to decide to buy insurance. “

It’s not funny because it’s true. It is funny because it’s true. Both are true.

Even more true: THROW THE BUM OUT!

  1. Americans are still uncovering even the most basic of information about Barack Obama and the Obama family of creeps. Which liar do you believe?:

    Obama’s Illegal Uncle Omar Contradicts White House – Says Obama Stayed With Him in 1980s

    Barack Obama’s illegal alien Uncle Onyango Obama was arrested in August 2011 for driving drunk.
    He was held by ICE for two weeks. Onyango told police when he was arrested that he planned to arrange bail through the White House.

    Onyango Obama denied he was drinking and driving, or that he failed to yield the right of way. Omar registered a reading of 0.14 percent on a blood-alcohol breath test, which is above the state’s legal driving limit of 0.08 percent. (BBC)

    Onyango was able to get his driver’s license back after his DUI.

    This week Barack Obama’s drunk Uncle Omar contradicted the White House and said that Obama lived with him while he was a student at Harvard.
    The Washington Post reported:

    President Obama’s uncle said at a deportation hearing Tuesday that Obama stayed with him while he was a student at Harvard Law School in the 1980s — despite the White House having said that Obama never met the man. [snip]

    The White House said following Omar Obama’s arrest that he and the president had never met. The president was not close to his father’s side of the family given his father’s absence in his life.

    The White House did not immediately comment on Omar Obama’s claim.

    Which liar do you believe?

  2. R.I.M. (Rest in misery) Martin Bashir:

    Of course, the rest of MSNBC’s lineup is similarly crude and thuggish. Ed Schultz is a red-faced rage-drunk, Al Sharpton is a rabble rouser with a body-count, Lawrence O’Donnell gets menacingly angry talking to women and occasionally challenges people to streetfights (people he knows won’t accept the challenge, by the way), and Chris Matthews alternates between frothing accusations of racism and sending video selfies of his on-air visible erections to Barack Obama.

    Meanwhile, of the alleged “smart ones” — the ones who play to the leftist’s erroneous self-conception of belonging to the intellectual and cultural elite — Rachel Maddow is a conspiracy-theory loving imbecile whose concept of analysis is a sneering head-tilt, and who routinely pushes Alex Jones level nonsense out to a gullible public. Chris Hayes, despite his pretenses of reasonableness, is true-believing hyperpartisan goon.

    But Martin Bashir’s ratings were the lowest of The Low lineup, and so he’s gone.

  3. Great post admin. The complete capitulation of bumbles coalition is moving faster than runaway trains in NYC. His poll numbers are beginning to mirror Bush’s end of term numbers 2 years earlier. I believe that he will hit 29% right before June of 2014. As Jews that voted for him see that he has handed Israel to their enemies on a silver platter, as young people leave him in droves, as the elderly find themselves behind the 8-ball, and as white liberals get the message, only the true believers will remain.

    IF Hillary runs in 2016, her actions now are nothing short of brilliant. Look at where she is giving speeches at. Look at who she is giving speeches to. It is almost as though she (and Bill) saw the dissolution of the TRUE democratic coalition coming and begun the arduous work of putting it back together. If that is the case, it is politically brilliant. KNOWING that the dems are going to lose seats in ’14, by getting to these groups in these places now, she sets herself up to regain a few of those seats in ’16 going into office.

    Hillary 2016

  4. In 2016, i think there will a fair amount of “I told you so” levelled against the Dems……..Hillary did indeed tell them in 2008 that this guy was not ready for primetime and they would do well to remember that and think of where they could have been now in 2016 if they had indeed not shafted Hillary in 2008, you can bet we would not be in the bloody mess we are now.

    As the situation gets more and more desperate in the next 12 months, Hillary should hold back the fire until she sees the whites of their eyes and the dams burst, she can pretty much ask and get what she wants from the Dem rank and file, there really has be a reckoning of them begging her to run, they need to apologize and beg her forgiveness for what they have done, sown and reaped in 2008. Hillary should not let them off lightly nor should she forgive and forget, the conspirators against her need to be run out of Washington DC, she needs to sweep the board clean and demand no less than absolute loyalty.

    Her list of people to be exiled must be longer than a weekly shopping list of a Mom with 7 kids. I know Bill is keeping the tick book, they will not get off lightly.

    Once nominated and then elected, she should wipe away every trace of the Obama administration into history, sweep out the WH with Clorax. Ask them no favour, give them no platform, place Obama in a bin and bury that bin at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

  5. …the kids know a fraud when they see one…

    …and they are still rebellious enough that they do not want anyone telling them what to do or how to spend what little money they have every month…

    …just wish something could be done about all the taxpayer money that is being robbed to keep this Ocare scam afloat…Megan hit it yesterday with all the money that is going to disappear as it just goes to insurance companies to make their pain and losses lighter…all paid by us…you and me…while we are still forced to pay the bills…and take the biggest hits…this should be considered criminal

  6. We’ve heard that before. Warren will be “forced ” to run by the anti-Clinton faction (see Barack Obama) of the party.

  7. Another great one, Admin. The truth will (and indeed, is going to ) set us free!


    The youth don’t stay young. In 2008, the (so-called) coolness of Barack snowed the young concrete thinkers. They had too little real life experience, and too much progressive textbook theory. They were easy marks for Obama and he knew it. He exploited their Deficits – their lack of understanding of government, history, etc., enticing them with his contrived persona, his (half) blackness, and his simplistic, idiotic solutions for complex problems. But, young people require constant exposure to their rock stars, to maintain their interest – new CDs, bigger concerts, bar fights, hotel destruction, whatever. And even with the best publicity, rock stars slide into obscurity, go to rehab, make a less than earth shaking come-back. Obama was never going to be able to keep the devotion of the young – not at the 2008 level.

    Cults based on the personality of an individual can’t remain viable. Without substance, truth, principles, etc., even really cool cult leaders become irrelevant pretty quickly. They are flashes in the pans.

    Martin Bashir Resigns
    Martin Bashir is leaving MSNBC. After remarks about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin sparked heavy criticism in recent weeks, he announced Wednesday that he will leave his post immediately.

    Here is Bashir’s statement: “After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. (Continues)
    Posted by Amarissa at 3:02 PM

  10. Bashir says refers to his comments as “ill-judged”. That is a total mis-characterization. His comments about Palin reveal far more than poor judgement – they reflect his twisted, elitist, narrow worldview and a complete lack of decency and character. Bashir is one twisted, entitled little dude.

    Obama Wants to Host ‘SportsCenter’ After Presidency

    That ACTUALLY might be the only job in this country he would do well. He has a catch phrase, a recognizable face, and he really does read from a teleprompter at a very high level. Problem is you could never be sure about the news he is reporting. For example, did the Cubs really win the world series, former Mr. President?

  12. Democratic infighting all the rage. 12/4/13.
    A flashpoint came this week when Third Way, a centrist Democratic think tank, published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal bashing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and her allies for trying to lure the party over a “populist cliff.”
    hey took aim at her proposal to pay for an expansion of Social Security benefits by lifting the cap on payroll taxes. Such taxes do not apply to incomes above $113,700.
    Liberals punched back by demanding that congressional Democrats affiliated with the think tank condemn the essay.
    This back-and-forth represented a rare display of intraparty bickering, as much of the political media has focused on the GOP tug-of-war between the Tea Party and establishment Republicans.
    Some contend the internecine fight on the left could continue into the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
    Groups such as the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) and Democracy for America pounced on Rep. Allyson Schwartz, an honorary co-chairwoman at Third Way, who is vying with a crowded field to win the Democratic nomination for governor in Pennsylvania.
    Warren stepped into the fray Wednesday by calling on Wall Street’s biggest firms to voluntarily disclose how much they give to think tanks, an indirect shot at Third Way. snip

  13. Obama Did Not Hold One-on-One Meeting With HHS Secretary Sebelius for Over 3 Years (Video)

    Sean Hannity on FOX News reported Wednesday President Obama did not hold a private One-to-One meeting with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for three-and-a-half years leading up to the Obamacare launch. From July 2010 until November 2013 Obama did not hold any private meetings with Secretary Sebelius according to the official White House calendar.

    Obama met with his other cabinet secretaries 277 times during the same time period.

  14. What if It’s All True?

    I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy ­ the most obvious explanation is likely to be true.

    Moreover, conspiracy theorists from Mark Lane to Jerome Corsi (more of him in a moment) have always seemed to me a little bit, well, off.

    Maybe it’s the temper of the times, however, the incessant presidential lying recently unmasked, but a brief Washington Post article linked on the Drudge Report Tuesday caught me up short. The headline told much of the story ­ “Obama’s uncle contradicts White House, says Obama stayed with him in 1980s.”

    Obama’s uncle is Onyango “Omar” Obama, 69, a Kenyan national who has been living illegally in this country for five decades. Omar, the manager of a liquor store, was caught driving under the influence recently and faced deportation. The judge apparently let him off. What’s interesting is that Omar testified during his trial that the future POTUS stayed at Onyango’s apartment in Cambridge in the 1980s while Barack attended Harvard Law. Obama has previously denied ever having even met Omar. But the Kenyan’s landlord corroborated under oath Barack Sr.’s brother’s testimony. The White House, as is its wont these days, isn’t commenting.

    Now, as a devotee of the aforementioned William of Ockham (“the hypothesis with the fewest assumptions should be selected”), I tend to believe, in fact I almost certainly believe, Obama’s father’s brother and his landlord, not the president. It makes little sense that Obama as a young Harvard grad student would not at least have looked up his father’s brother, when they were living in the same town for three years. Indeed, it makes good sense that he might have crashed on Omar’s couch for a few days or weeks while looking for an apartment. Many, if not most, of us have done something similar.

    Furthermore, although there might be some incentive for Omar to lie about his relationship with the president to curry favor with the judge, what incentive would his landlord have had? To be indicted for perjuring himself? No wonder the White House is silent.


  15. Lanny Davis editorial about Hillary’s historic speech in 1995 at the United Nations Women’s Conference in China, and her continuing support of women’s rights:


    By Lanny Davis – 12/04/13 07:54 PM EST

    Almost 20 years ago, in September 1995, America’s first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, took the podium at the fourth annual United Nations Women’s Conference in Beijing.

    A prominent Chinese pro-democracy dissident had been arrested. Many in the U.S. government and broader diplomatic community opposed the first lady going to China at such a time. First ladies, they argued, were not supposed to call out and challenge a foreign government as a guest on its soil. It just isn’t done. It just isn’t diplomatic. It just isn’t … well, what first ladies are supposed to do.

    But Clinton didn’t abide by this advice. She stood on principle, and gave what I believe was one of the finest and most important speeches of her life. It is worth reading in full (…), at The Clinton Foundation’s website.

    The most memorable passage, quoted to this day, unmistakably connected the arrest of the dissident and China’s dismal record on human rights violations with the subject of the Women’s Conference: “If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights once and for all. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely — and the right to be heard.”

    “Let me be clear,” she said. Few doubted that her speech was directed to and about Chinese government leaders. “Freedom means the right of people to assemble, organize and debate openly.”

    The Chinese government cut off video at the conference center and blacked out all Chinese media reporting of the speech. But the word spread. As Clinton left the conference room, there were women standing in hallways and hanging over the balconies. Tens of millions of Chinese women, by word of mouth, heard about and were moved by the speech.

    And remarkably, the first lady’s blunt words — far from causing an international breach and controversy with the Chinese government — ultimately won admiration and respect for her among government leaders that lasts to this day.”

    To the so-called feminists who swooned in the presence of The Great Obama in 2008, and demonstrated less than enthusiastic support for Hillary: You put your superhero on the cover of MS Magazine, proclaiming him to be a champion of women’s rights. You selected just the right shade of lipstick for your cover-pig. He grinned and posed as your cameras flashed and snapped, all the while, the words of one of his favorite rap tune played in his head – “I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.” Hillary Clinton is a true feminist. She was fighting for women’s rights while you were dressing up your pig.

  16. hold’em, if this statement from the article you linked is any indication, even the hyper-educated elite liberals are concerned about Obama’s failure to respect constitutional and legal process.

    “George Washington University law professor and Obama supporter Jonathan Turley says he’s troubled by the expansion of executive power under both President George W. Bush and now President Obama.

    “The problem of what the president is doing is that he is not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system; he is becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid: that is, the concentration of power in any single branch,” he said.”

  17. wbb,

    Since Rove left, the RNC has not been a bastion of political genius, and it seems that Reince is continuing in that trend.

    The strategy at the state level has been very good. Swinging state legislatures and governor seats red has been and continues to be an excellent strategy since it is apparent that the blues have forgotten local politics in lieu of propping up teh one. That said, I would think that the federal strategy should be all in to maintain and possibly pick up a few House seats, while going balls to the wall trying to flip the Senate.

    What do you think?

    Almost 20 years ago, in September 1995, America’s first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, took the podium at the fourth annual United Nations Women’s Conference in Beijing.

    To the so-called feminists who swooned in the presence of The Great Obama in 2008, and demonstrated less than enthusiastic support for Hillary: You put your superhero on the cover of MS Magazine, proclaiming him to be a champion of women’s rights.

She was fighting for women’s rights while you were dressing up your pig.

    That speech was my first introduction to Hillary. I had already ‘met’ Bill who had impressed me tremendously. I couldn’t get over her bravery for giving that speech. The Chinese are a very paternalistic nation, an for a woman to stand up in the well of their parliament and wag a finger in their face in support of freedom – well I was became a fan that will endure until I leave this world.

    When I saw that mess about bumbles on Ms. magazine, disgust doesn’t begin to describe my feelings. Not one piece of legislation at the state level identified teh one as anything approaching a feminist, and yet here is the media anointing him a superhero to women. That was the straw that broke the whale’s back. To them and to all the women in Congress that backed teh one, I look forward to their demise and see their support as self serving and not worth bagged up dog excrement.

    That means you lady from Missouri.

  19. Turley: Obama’s “Become The Very Danger The Constitution Was Designed To Avoid”

    REP. BOB GOODLATTE (R-VA): Professor Turley, the constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It’s about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president’s unilateral modification of act of Congress affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people?

    JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.

  20. JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.
    This was the intent all along. Obama–the man who rose from obscurity was the perfect front man to destroy our liberty, and our economic security, in pursuit of an agenda we know next to nothing about. The democrat party under his spell has become less of a party and more of a cult. Think of the Obama thing as a cult, as much as the Nazism was not so much a party as a cult–which came to this country under an OSS/CIA operation called Paperclip for the ostensible purpose of securing their science, but part of that science was mind control. A doctor I played golf with at Doral on two occasions, who was the Miami City Pschiatrist, who eventually lost his mind, was in charge of the prisoner of war debriefing program after the Korean War, which was suddenly and mysteriously aborted. This researcher is the best in the field, which is easily dismissed at the outset as conspiracy theory, until you listen, reflect and witness what is going on in our country. At that point, you start to suspend disbelief. One of the things he talks about is how CNN was reporting a riot in a foreign city where he happened to be staying at the time and no riot was occurring. I am aware of two other occasions where this happened, both of them in South Africa, both by the New York Times, one in the 1950s and the other in the 1970s in an effort to overthrow apartheid. It is about the manipulation of reality for the sake of an agenda. We have seen the same thing during the Obama Administration, by big media, and it has driven our nation to the verge of a nervous breakdown. This is a very interesting writer/researcher.

    Start at the 36-37 minute mark and you will begin to see connections to things that are happening now.

  21. a clear message: White people are poor too.

    The conversation that assumes inequality is about poverty — and that both are about race — is a dangerous error that has infected American thinking and warped American politics, he argued in the middle of a long speech hosted by the Center for American Progress.

    Although he didn’t offer much in the way of detailed solutions, the comments were some his most substantive on the intersection of race and politics to date and the White House hopes will begin changing the conversation about what the government can and should do about the income gap. […]

  22. We won’t believe any Obama Dimocrat who pretends in 2016 to be fighting for women. Misogynist pigs:

    Turns out Martin Bashir’s mouth has gotten him into trouble before.

    Bashir resigned from MSNBC Wednesday over the sliming of Sarah Palin after meeting with the network’s president, Phil Griffin.

    But this isn’t the first time that Bashir has had to apologize for his remarks about a woman. While working for ABC News in the summer of 2008, he was addressing an Asian American Journalists Association convention in Chicago, with his “20/20” colleague Juju Chang also on stage. He began commenting on her dress.

    As New York magazine reported in a brief and little-noticed item, Bashir said that “I’m happy to be in the midst of so many Asian babes.” And, he added, “I’m happy that the podium covers me from the waist down.” He said a speech should be “like a dress on a a beautiful woman — long enough to cover the important parts and short enough to keep your interest — like my colleague Juju’s.” Some audience members booed, the magazine said.

    A little digging reveals that ABC quietly suspended Bashir after the incident. He wrote an apology to the Asian-American group, saying: “Upon reflection, it was a tasteless remark that I now bitterly regret. I … hope that the continuing work of the organization will not be harmed or undermined by my moment of stupidity.”

    An ABC spokesman declined to comment on the episode involving Bashir, a former “Nightline” co-anchor.

    There’s an obvious contrast between ABC’s swift move and MSNBC’s decision to let the controversy build for nearly three weeks after Bashir delivering a disgusting personal attack on Palin that brought him widespread condemnation. By declining to suspend Bashir or denounce his remarks, MSNBC reached the point where the only way to control the damage was to sever its relationship with the British journalist.

  23. DrudgeReport headline: OBAMA YOUTH TURN ON LEADER

    The story:

    Young invincibles spurn O-Care

    Mounting opposition to ObamaCare among young adults is creating a new crisis for the White House.

    While the federal enrollment website appears to be improving by the day, polls show the “young invincibles” key to making the law work are becoming less likely to enroll.

    Younger people were skeptical of the healthcare reform law even before its troubled rollout, despite their support for President Obama.

    But polling indicates the problems facing — a site the administration initially touted as a hip, tech-friendly experience — have reinforced their doubts about the need to have health insurance at all.

    “The trend is daunting for the White House but not necessarily surprising,” said Pew Research Center Director Michael Dimock.

    “Younger folks are part of Obama’s base … but the rollout confirmed concerns that were already in their minds.”

    A poll released Wednesday by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that more than half of 18- to 29-year-olds disapprove of ObamaCare and believe it will raise their healthcare costs.

    Even more troubling for the administration is that less than one-third of uninsured young people said they plan to enroll in coverage.

    Without a large number of young, healthy people in the insurance exchanges, it could create a “death spiral” of high premiums that could threaten the long-term viability of the marketplaces.

  24. Black Councilwoman says ‘Knockout game’ violence stems from ‘genuine concern’ about Jewish influence.

    The People’s Republic of New York – A local Democrat New York City politician and ally of mayor-elect Bill de Blasio says the recent spate of “knockout” attacks in Brooklyn may stem from “a genuine concern” about Jewish influence.

    Laurie Cumbo, the councilwoman-elect for the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights, made the comments in an open letter posted to her Facebook page. In the letter, Cumbo reports that many of her African-American constituents are alarmed by the growth of the local Jewish community.

    The resulting tension, she says, could have lead to a number of attacks on Jewish residents that bear the hallmarks of a “game” in which teens attempt to knock someone unconscious with one punch reports the Daily Caller.

    “Many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be pushed out by their Jewish landlords or by Jewish families looking to purchase homes,” Cumbo wrote. ”I respect and appreciate the Jewish community’s family values and unity that has led to strong political, economic and cultural gains… While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”

    Like mayor-elect de Blasio, Cumbo hails from the resurgent left wing of the city’s Democratic Party. De Blasio, who once volunteered to assist the radical socialist Sandinista movement in Nicaragua, will be New York City’s first Democratic mayor in 20 years when he’s inaugurated next month.

    Violence is not the answer. ;(

  26. I think i’d be happy the jewish community was growing in the area, at least the jewish kids don’t run around shooting people and robbing stores and punching 80 yr old women in the face.

    Laurie Cumbo is flat out racist., basically saying she dont want no jewish people in her hood……and more likely scared that she would lose her livelihood when the jewish outnumber the gangbangers and vote her out.

  27. “Hillary Clinton is a true feminist.”

    Absolutely! But not according to the Left. They’ve never given her much credit for that speech, basically writing her off as a “white-privileged, corporate shill.” In their myopic view, she’s not “the right kind of woman” to merit the feminist moniker (i.e. she’s not far enough to the Left). Indeed, during the 2008 primaries, I didn’t come across one supporter for Hillary at UCB — not even in the Gender & Women’s Studies Dept! This is why I’ve always believed that E. Warren will be the Left’s preferred candidate in 2016. They’re so predictable!

    “White House hopes will begin changing the conversation about what the government can and should do about the income gap. […]”


    Here’s a thought. Stop destroying full-time jobs.

  29. Obama is in even bigger trouble than the numbers say. Washington Post:

    Why Barack Obama can’t win

    President Obama has reached a new low in his presidency — this much is clear.

    But the president’s lowest-ever approval ratings don’t even tell quite how bad it is for Obama. For that, you need to look at how he is viewed on the issues.

    Recent polling from the Pew Research Center and Quinnipiac University has shown Obama’s approval rating on almost all major issues plunging into the 30s — below even his lowest-ever overall approval rating, which has stood around 40 percent in recent polls.

    One might expect Obama’s issue approval rating to be lagging on the economy, for example. And it is.

    But even with an issue on which which the president appears to fall in line with a majority of Americans, he’s struggling.

    The Pew poll showed Obama’s approval rating on immigration, for instance, was at 32 percent, with 60 percent disapproving, and Quinnipiac showed just 35 percent approving of Obama on that issue.

    This is despite his push for a comprehensive immigration reform package that, in principle, Americans support. Two recent polls have shown about six in 10 Americans support the idea of a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently living in the United States — the linchpin of comprehensive reform.

    Immigration isn’t the only issue. The Quinnipiac poll also showed Obama’s approval on foreign policy, the federal budget and health-care all below his overall approval rating. On none of these issues did he crack 36 percent approval. The only issue on which Obama was still above-water was fighting terrorism (52 percent approve, 42 percent disapprove).

    The Pew poll showed basically the same thing, with Obama rising above 37 percent approval only on terrorism. [snip]

    Regardless of what it is, the lesson is that Obama is going to be fighting something of an uphill battle on basically anything he does going forward, be it immigration reform, the looming budget negotiations, or even the temporary deal to halt Iran’s nuclear program — which, like immigration, polling suggests he should be strong on.

    The saving grace for Obama is that the Republican Party is hardly in a strong position these days. But despite this, the Quinnipiac poll showed Republicans in Congress — even as they have hit a new low in many polls — had a slight edge on Obama on all four issues tested: immigration, health care, the economy and the federal budget.

    All of it suggests a difficult road ahead for Obama when it comes to the looming legislative fights in Congress.

  30. White House hopes will begin changing the conversation about what the government can and should do about the income gap. […]”
    No fucking way this will work. They have tarred themselves with the racist brush and therefore any attempt to shift the conversation by them to where it should have been all along which is with the growing income gap is a bridge too far. As Tennessee Williams noted in the Glass Menagerie, the longest distance between two points is time. For over six years they–the entire party–from Dean to Van Hollen to Kain (Cain) have pounded the racist drum along with their fellow travelers in big media. To go from race to income now would be like opening the throttle at 100 mph, and then shifting into reverse. That is an appropriate position but Obama is the last one on the planet to advocate it. All I can figure is at this point, after everything he has done, including burning bridges with the other side of the aisle, he is so desperate that he will try anything to run out the clock. I think he knows that he is no longer the useful tool he once was to the people who really run the country and are consolidating their power with the help of Roberts.

  31. Because they are all a sham..thats why…..

    The White House still refuses to reveal the names of the 18 people who stood behind President Obama on Tuesday at the kickoff of a weeks-long campaign to promote Obamacare. In his remarks that day, the president said the people on stage with him represented Americans “all across the country whose lives have been changed for the better by the Affordable Care Act.” But when asked who the people were and what their stories were, White House officials declined to provide the information.

    Across the country in New Mexico, however, some observers recognized a former Albuquerque city councilman and Democratic politician named Michael Cadigan. (He is the tall white man with salt-and-pepper hair standing behind Obama, in the top left corner of the photo below.) Cadigan, a former Marine, was an early supporter of Obama’s 2008 campaign, appearing with then-Sen. Obama at a campaign event and contributing $500 to the Obama effort. He has also been a small donor to the progressive activist groups MoveOn and Act Blue.

    Cadigan ended up in Washington on Tuesday, standing behind the president, through the work of a pro-Obamacare, Democratic-aligned group called the Small Business Majority.

    Here is what happened. Cadigan now has a small law firm with five employees. On Oct. 1, the first day anyone was allowed to shop for insurance on the Obamacare exchanges, he went to the New Mexico exchange — the state created its own exchange and it was actually working on Day One — and enrolled to cover his employees.

    “I signed us up, and we were able to save my firm $1,000 a month,” Cadigan said in an interview Wednesday night. Pleased, Cadigan wrote about his experience on Facebook, saying that he not only saved a significant amount of money but that the exchange experience had been relatively quick and easy. A short time later, according to Cadigan, a reporter from a New Mexico business publication noticed the Facebook post, got in touch, and wrote an article about it.

    Meanwhile, the administration was coming under heavy criticism for the failure of the national Obamacare exchange, Democrats were eager to find success stories they could publicize. In late October, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi included Cadigan’s story in a blog item titled “Affordable Care Act Success Stories.” The story found its way into some Democratic talking points.

    “Then I got a call from the Small Business Majority,” said Cadigan. “They asked if they could use my story. I said sure … and they called me last week and said, ‘Can you come out and be at this event?’ ”

    “This event” turned out to be a program with the president himself, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the first of an extended Obamacare promotion campaign. Cadigan, who said he had not heard of the Small Business Majority before, said he checked their website to see if they were legitimate. He did not deal with the White House in being invited and making arrangements; it was all done by the Small Business Majority. (Cadigan said he paid his own expenses to Washington.)

    Black Councilwoman says ‘Knockout game’ violence stems from ‘genuine concern’ about Jewish influence.


    It’s absolutely unbelievable that anyone would write such drivel. Thank you Councilwoman for confirming the obvious – the knockout game was a hate crime. It needs to be prosecuted as such.

    What can you say in response to her statements other than – so the hell what?! The fact that blacks don’t like Jews moving into their neighborhoods is not relevant to a damn thing, and certainly cannot justify their crimes. If the situations were reversed, and Jewish people were attacking blacks because they didn’t want them moving into the neighborhood, Oprah would be weeping on national tv, yet again condemning the US as a “racist nation.” The heads of both Jackson and Sharpton would be spinning in tandem. Barack would make another damn speech. Eric would incite race riots, and try to put every Jew in Brooklyn in the slammer.

    If Barack is into fighting inequality – this might be a good place to start.

  33. ObamaCare War on Women:

    Obamacare Is Costing Democrats the White Women They’ll Need at the Ballot Box

    Polls show that when it comes to the troubled health care law, Democrats should be most concerned about one of their key constituencies.

    It’s not the voters who hate Obamacare the most who are going to matter in next year’s elections. It’s the independents who frequently side with Democrats but could, if propelled by a distaste for the health care law, take a serious look at the GOP in 2014. And on this front, Democrats have a big problem with one of their most crucial constituencies—white women.

    Polling provided to National Journal by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that white women have soured considerably on the law, especially in the month since its botched rollout. The skepticism runs especially deep among blue-collar women, sometimes known as “waitress moms,” whose deeply pessimistic attitudes toward the Affordable Care Act should riddle Democratic candidates with anxiety.

    Certainly, the law’s unpopularity gives Republicans a tool to counter the Democratic claim of a GOP “war on women”—something Republicans failed miserably at in 2012. But more significantly, it demonstrates that Democrats will have to fight just to retain core elements of their constituency. With 2014’s most important campaigns already lying in hostile territory like Alaska, Arkansas, and South Dakota, it’s a battle many of these candidates can ill afford.

    The Kaiser poll, which has been conducted monthly since Obamacare’s inception, shows the law has never been a big hit with white women. But this group’s opinions took a sharply negative turn in the November results.

    According to Kaiser, 40 percent of college-educated white women hold a “very unfavorable” view of the law—10 points higher than a month ago. An additional 10 percent view the law “somewhat unfavorably.” A month ago, those two groups together totaled just 42 percent.

    That’s not damning in and of itself, but this is the one slice of the white electorate where Democrats usually perform well. President Obama won 46 percent of the group in 2012, and even that was an underwhelming showing compared with recent Democratic presidential candidates.

    And that’s not all. Democrats should be far more worried about white women who do not have a higher education. The numbers are astounding: In the latest Kaiser poll, 50 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the law—9 points higher than in October. An additional 13 percent view it “somewhat unfavorably.” Indeed, antipathy among blue-collar white women runs even deeper than the most conservative white demographic group, blue-collar white men (59 percent of whom hold an unfavorable view, Kaiser found).

    Remarkably, only 16 percent of blue-collar white women have a favorable view of Obamacare. They disapprove of it by a 4-1 ratio. (The poll found 21 percent did not know enough about the ACA to hold an opinion.) These voters are by no means a strongly Democratic group: Obama won just 39 percent of them last year. But they do lean further left than their male counterparts, and Democratic candidates in 2014 will need to perform even better with them to win reelection. In 2008, for example, Democrat Mark Begich won his Senate race in Alaska by claiming 54 percent of the white female vote, which constituted 41 percent of the state’s electorate. He’s a top GOP target in 2014.

    Republicans suggest that white women’s deep pessimism is rooted in the cascade of negative media surrounding the law. “Women are more interested in having health care than men are,” said Keith Emis, an Arkansas-based GOP pollster who works for Rep. Tom Cotton, the likely Republican challenger to Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor. “They have paid a whole lot more attention to this.”

    Obamacare’s unpopularity runs deep in other Democratic constituencies too. A new poll by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, for one, found millennials turning away from the law. And some GOP pollsters argue that focusing on the effects of just one group is misguided. “This isn’t just small segments of the electorate; these are huge, broad topics that affect everybody,” said David Winston, a Republican pollster with close ties to the House GOP. “Who isn’t interested in health care?”

    But groups such as the millennials aren’t as important to Democratic candidates like Begich and Pryor who are up for reelection. Women are crucial to their causes. And while Democrats might ultimately be able to sell voters on a “fix it, don’t repeal it” approach to Obamacare, the data show they’ve still got a lot more work to do.

  34. Put differently, I do not think a third term for Obama is likely, even though the Constitution means nothing to him and even less to big media, based on who owns and controls them. Besides which he is angling for a career in sports announcement and his wife is angling for a Hollywood career with Spike Lee, ergo, as the saying goes tempus fugit. No third term for bad boy Barack et ux. Big media is crestfallen.

  35. Obama is the one who should be heading to Bollywood. He is a master of stagecraft–and nothing else. But the Cadigan thing really got by him. It is damned funny if you think about it. Fraud works when it is undetected. Here the contrary evidence was hiding in plain view. On second thought Barack–go back to announcing for the Chicago Bulls.

  36. If Barack is into fighting inequality – this might be a good place to start.
    But be careful what you wish for. If the jackass did anything more than beating his gums over this what would he do. Remember his mantra, never let a crisis go to waste. Suppose, for the sake of argument, that he arbitrarily decided to address the issue through some form of action, what would he do? I suspect he would use this crisis as a pretext to establish more police state tactics which violate our privacy and due process. It is clear to me–crystal clear, that he is a tool of people who want to turn this country into a police state, from massive spying to cameras on every street, the bottom line is not security but control. It is mildly distressing to me that the sheeple–and particularly the self professed leftists who blithely ignore the problem, and pretend that the kingdom of god will be at hand if Sarah Palin is forced off the public stage. They are the most ignorant people on the planet, because they do not know how thoroughly they have been manipulated, and turned into rabid beasts. On a different level it is rather frightening. But at least we now know or have an inkling that the answers lie beyond the political level. All we will find in that venue is the symptoms. The root causes lie elsewhere.

  37. Panicked Dem Senators Held Hush-Hush Meeting With WH Over Obamacare: “These guys are nervous as hell. It’s a nightmare”

    White House chief of staff Denis McDonough held an unpublicized meeting with Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.), chairman of the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm, amid anger and anxiety that ObamaCare’s botched rollout could cost the party its majority next year.

    After the government shutdown, they were confident they would retain the Senate, but optimism vanished as problems with the healthcare law mounted.

    “I know these guys are nervous as hell,” said a second senior Democratic aide. “I mean, all of their jobs are on the line because this is the thing making the biggest waves lately. It’s a nightmare.”

    Anger among Democrats over the rollout of ObamaCare is deep. The third aide, who works for a senator up for reelection in 2014, said the White House had “s–t the bed.”

    Now, the staffer said, the president’s sinking approval ratings are an additional problem.

    “Everyone recognizes that our electoral process is tied to the president’s standings,” the aide said. “I think it’s in everyone’s best interest to get the site working again.”

  38. Think back to the 2008 primary. Remember the two deaths that occurred on the eve of the election. One was Bill Gwatney a leader of the Arkansas delegation. The other was Stephanie Tubbs Jones who was a prominent and respected black congresswoman from Ohio. Both were staunch Hillary supporters and the word was they were going to lead a floor fight, but before that could happen both of them died. Mysteriously. Gwatney was killed by an unknown black assailent who had no connection to him, and there was no motive extant. He was killed by the Arkansas police in a high speed chase. Jones died of a strange ailment, but there was colorable medical causes. How does it come about that a black man with no motive who did not even know Gwatney come to kill him? How did it come to pass that Sirhan Sirhan who did not know Bobby Kennedy and had no motive to kill him, and had no recollection of the incident, did so? Most people would say, these were just coincidences. But maybe not. Maybe the people who wanted to change our country in ways which were bad for the American People saw advangages in doing this. Both cases suggest the possibility of mind control programs which have been part of the CIA agenda since the close of World War II. If you look at certain seminal events like the Kennedy assassinations, the 2008 financial collapse, and the rise and impending fall of Obama, you see a pattern–which is at least impressionistic, but could also be symptomatic of an agenda to destroy all obstacles to complete power. Combine that with the manipulation of reality by big media, and some form of mischief is clearly at work. At one point, I assumed that some of this was orchestrated by Axelrod, but I no longer believe that. There were enough stories about what he was doing at the time to warrant just such a belief. He is a vile human being, but this is a lot bigger than him. Until we have more concrete answers however we will be like blind men feeling the elephant. And that is why Peter Lavenda’s work is important enough for me to post as I did above.

  39. The point I neglected to mention above is that Gwatney and Jones were poised to launch a floor fight against Obama. But after they were gone, it did not happen. This warrants a suspicion and even an inference that these were not random acts but were part of a scheme to make sure Obama got the nomination, and later the presidency. Someone above the political level was willing to invest huge amounts of time and money to ensure the election of a “transformational” president, with no real values, no agenda, but was vain, corruptible, in essence a cheap date.


    President Obama and his family will once again be taking a Hawaiian Christmas vacation, departing in two weeks – on or about December 20 – and returning January 5, according to Hawaii News Now.

    That means that on January 1, at the very moment people across the country will be losing their insurance as a result of Obamacare, the president will be enjoying a festive respite from his troubles.

    The Obamas have vacationed on Hawaii every year since Obama was first elected president, at considerable cost to taxpayers.

    Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the flight between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s annual Hawaii sojourn amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.

    Obama is expected to stay as he has in the past in Kailua on the island of Oahu.

  41. Now we know which liar to believe. Barack Obama cannot be trusted, not even when the other guy is a drunk driver:

    President Obama acknowledges having lived with his uncle

    President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.

    Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.

    On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.

    “The President first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The President did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The President has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.” [snip]

    President Obama had written in his memoir, Dreams from My Father, that he had met Zeituni Onyango, his aunt.

    But his relationship with his uncle, nicknamed Omar, was less clear.

    In November 2011, a White House spokesman said he had no record of the two ever meeting. The Washington Post had also reported that scholars believed the two had never met.

    The White House never moved to correct the record, until the president’s famously private uncle took the witness stand in Boston immigration court two days ago.

    Onyango Obama, now a 69-year-old liquor store manager in Framingham, said he had helped numerous students and had relatives in the United States, including his nephew, Barack Obama.

    He said the president had stayed with him at his Cambridge apartment for three weeks when he came to attend Harvard Law School in the 1980s.

  42. So he lied…Obama and the WH categorically stated they “never” met.

    Now…..Carney: Obama “has not seen” his uncle in “roughly 20 years” and has not spoken to him in “10 years”

  43. Flat out lied is the term i would use.

    After denying they had met, White House now says Obama lived with uncle

    The White House acknowledged Thursday that President Obama lived with his uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while he was a student at Harvard Law School — after previously saying the two had never met.

    “The President first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement, according to the Boston Globe. “The President did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The President has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”

    Onyango “Omar” Obama faced a deportation hearing earlier this week following a drunk-driving arrest. During the hearing, he said that the president had lived with him while he was a student at Harvard.

    The White House had previously told the Globe, after Omar Obama’s arrest, that the president had never met his uncle, who comes from his father’s side of the family and is a Kenyan national. Obama was not close with his father, who left the family when the president was very young.

    The White House told the Globe on Thursday that its staff had not fully researched the matter when the Globe asked two years. It said there was no record of the two having met, but that it had not asked the president directly.

    The Globe said the White House never asked for a correction.

    Obama’s relationship with his uncle is also news to scholars of the president, who also found no evidence that the two had met, according to a 2011 Washington Post report.

    Omar Obama, 69, was allowed to stay in the United States following his hearing. The White House emphasized that it did nothing to assist Omar Obama in his deportation case. He had said when he was arrested that the president would help him out.

    The White House did not comment on the matter Tuesday or Wednesday, despite requests from the Washington Post.

    That should have been their first clue.

  45. Obama Offers The GOP Distractions

    By: streiff (Diary) | December 5th, 2013 at 10:12 AM | 15

    THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS IN DISARRAY. It is LED BY A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR WHO HAS NO CREDIBILITY WITH THE NATION OR WITH ANYONE BUT THE MOST MINDLESS PARTISANS IN THE MEDIA AND CONGRESS.led by a pathological liar who has no credibility with the nation or with anyone but the most mindless partisans in the media and Congress. As Obamacare continues to be a veritable PANDORA’S BOX OF EVILS seemingly designed to DRIVE INSURANCE COMPANIES OUT OF BUSINESS and STRIP MOST AMERICANS OF THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE, vulnerable (or did streiff mean venerable?) Democrat officials are looking for ways to distance themselves from both the man and his plan. Louisiana Senatory Mary Landrieu found an urgent engagement elsewhere when Obama showed up to give a speech in New Orleans. Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor has been reduced to blaming Jesus for his Obamacare vote.

    In face of this the Democrats have returned to their old standby: MISREPRESENTATION AND DIVERSION (aided and abetted by big media, their partner in crime.)

    Some weeks ago I wrote about how the Democrats were attempting to use a three-pronged strategy. First, they were conflating Obamacare with the website (see Beware the Shiny Object). Second, they intended to challenging us to “fix” it (See Obamacare and the Governing Trap). Third, they are attempting to change the national conversation from Obamacare to some other shiny object. The first strategy is deadly because even the feckless gits in the White House will eventually figure out how to get the website running. No matter that they are giving your personal information to the Russian Mob or anyone else with the ambition to crack their non-existent security protocols. The second is positively lethal because it would make the GOP complicit in the insurance meltdown and give the GOP a vested interest in saving Obamacare. The third is equally lethal in that it results in us fighting 2014 and 2016 on turf of the Democrats’ choosing, not the ground we wish to fight on. (snip)

    I’m not sure why any sane person would want to be associated with anything produced by Kay Bailey Hutchinson or her hangers-on but is shows that there is a substantial portion of the GOP, mostly in the SENATE, that is willing to go THE VICHY ROUTE.

    When it comes to OBAMACARE we can win by doing nothing but highlighting the way it is bringing fire and sword to the American economy. That the rent-seekers that helped craft this bill are being hit hardest is a feature not a bug. The worst thing we can do is to let attention lapse on the way this has hurt American families. We can do this with clean conscience because the only real solution is to REPEAL Obamacare and start from scratch. As repeal has been taken off the table there is nothing to talk about.

    We can’t get sucked into other battles on social programs and we don’t have to. There is no reason why the House has to take up a minimum wage bill. Extended unemployment benefits sunset on December 31 and unless the House brings up the issue there is no reason to address it. Likewise with the food stamp program. Rather than get dragged into a no-win debate on food stamps, not that we shouldn’t have the debate but that we have to realize it is a fight that will result is a huge diversion of attention from the real prize, the House should take no action on the Farm Bill.

    What we have to realize is that we are dealing with A PRESIDENT WHO IS DEVOID OF INTEGRITY OR RESPECT for the institutions of United States government. The same can been said for Senator Harry Reid. There is no way you can negotiate with such men. There is no way you can participate in governance with them. You can only oppose them.

    The good news is that opposing them is easy. Obamacare will continue as a suppurating wound. Absent a thermonuclear war, OBAMA’S APPROVAL NUMBERS WILL CONTINUE TO SLIDE. His lack of integrity is leaving him POLITICALLY ISOLATED.

    Once we start floating alternatives or policies we are giving them a piñata to whack at. Our goal should be that Obama gets NOT A SINGLE PIECE OF LEGISLATION APPROVED before he leaves office.

    hold’em, if this statement from the article you linked is any indication, even the hyper-educated elite liberals are concerned about Obama’s failure to respect constitutional and legal process.
    I have no respect for these people coming forward now.

    When the tyrant was riding high on the wave of popularity they said nothing.

    Now that he is in the trough and it appears the Republicans may be the beneficiary they speak up.

    Well, these legal scholars who discovered the breach only after it became fashionable are strictly camp followers.

    As Ibsen said in the closing line of his play, Enemy of The People: “The strongest one is the one who stands alone.”

    Part of my dislike of these people is personal.

    I wrote a 50 page paper showing how Obama was violating every provision of the Bill of Rights.

    This was two years ago, when he was riding high in the saddle.

    Then, they did not care.

  48. Business people shouldn’t be required to check their faith at the door.
    By Richard W. Garnett

    December 5, 2013

    A little more than 20 years ago, Congress did something that, today, is hard to imagine. Lawmakers from both parties and across the political spectrum found common ground and passed, by a near-unanimous vote, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which firmly commits the federal government to protecting and promoting our “inalienable right” to freely exercise religion. As President Clinton remarked when he signed the legislation into law, “the power of God is such that even in the legislative process, miracles can happen.”

    Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear two cases that are testing the strength of this commitment. The arguments and decisions in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood lawsuits will say a lot about the health, and the future, of what Clinton called our “first freedom.”

    These cases involve religious liberty challenges by two family businesses to the rule in the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception and some drugs that many believe can cause abortions.

    The Green family has not confined its Christian beliefs to Sunday worship, and has instead expressed them through the operation of its Hobby Lobby stores for nearly 40 years. Similarly, the Hahn family’s Mennonite faith has animated and sustained its woodworking business for generations.,0,2899.story#ixzz2mdpx9EFU

  49. in New Jersey, 50,000 sign up for online gambling. 741 sign up for Obamacare.
    I respect their priorities.

    With on line gambling, the house has a 17 point advantage–if it is anything like black jack.

    With Obamacare, Obama and his minions have a 100 point advantage.

    The odds are, therefore, predictable.

    This tells which game to play, and which one to stay away from.

    This small point is now dawning on the millenians.

    He is a mean mean mean Messiah.

    And they don’t love him anymore.

    Obama needs to start auditioning for his next job, as announcer for the Chicago Bulls.

    He has got both parts down–on the one hand, the corrupt Chicago, on the other hand that marvelous line of bull.

  50. Media’s has dropped its pants already awaiting Obama’s *very important what Mandela meant to me as a useful political diversion tool statement*

  51. You knew it, every political leader is giving out a written statement, not Obama, he has to give a press conference of course, make all about him, of course, me me me me me look at me.

  52. I’m still way behind on reading the blog…but

    “Bill Clinton said recently that Obamacare “only works .  .  . if young people show up.”


    Bill is a wiz, he says something that is true and sounds in support of Barry’s big O’Scam…but while the innocent fall for it, he is really saying:

    -Yup folks, this ObamaCare has a chance if only all the young people that don’t need healthcare pay for it every month for the rest of their lives.

    While most Obama supporters thought they were going to get free health care. After all, college students that didn’t want to pay for their cheap ass birth control pills sure as heck aren’t willing to pay hundreds of dollars a month for HellCare.

  53. Oh for goodness sake…UK TV channels have gone none stop Mandela, its like nothing else exists…total over doing it.

  54. CNN: PRES. OBAMA TO TRAVEL TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR MANDELA MEMORIAL SERVICE…….and will he go straight to Hawaii afterwards…….until January.

  55. MoonOnPluto, on the bright side, tonight is the Chris Matthews lovefest with Obama, and Mandela just blew that up. Obama (and Matthews) must be furious that Mandela did not expire at a more convenient time for Obama, say just before the “interview” was taped this afternoon.

  56. Yet he could not be assed to go to Margaret Thatchers funeral…….of course not, she was an old white woman like his grandmother…….


    Must-See Graph: Hispanics Abandoning the President in Droves?

    Last December President Obama boasted a 53 percent (average) approval rating. Eleven months later, however, only 41 percent on average now approve of the job he’s doing as president — a remarkable reversal. Millennials, in other words, mustn’t be the only ones losing faith in their president. As it happens, so are Hispanics, non-whites, moderates, the poor, and just about everyone else:

  58. …of course women are bolting against the dims…

    women do not like when repubs try controlling their personal lives in the realm of choice…

    …now you have O and the freaking dims coming in and taking over their whole entire health care choices and forcing them to pay more for it or be penalized and get nothing…

    how could the dims be so stupid…?


    from Leonara up above…

    “I know these guys are nervous as hell,” said a second senior Democratic aide. “I mean, all of their jobs are on the line because this is the thing making the biggest waves lately. It’s a nightmare.”

    Anger among Democrats over the rollout of ObamaCare is deep. The third aide, who works for a senator up for reelection in 2014, said the White House had “s–t the bed.”

    Now, the staffer said, the president’s sinking approval ratings are an additional problem.

    “Everyone recognizes that our electoral process is tied to the president’s standings,” the aide said. “I think it’s in everyone’s best interest to get the site working again.”


    these dims really are stupid and dense…it is not in everyone’s best interest to the site working again…forget it…it is not the site y

  59. …got cut off…

    it is not the site…it is the corruption of the policy and the control and increasing costs for everyone…it is the lack of trust that no one is in control to keep the costs down…and they are going to go up…up…and up…year after year…

    it is the realization that bureacrats are going to be controlling everyone’s personal health choices and on top of that…everyone’s personal information is being put at risk just to prop up the O and his website debacle…people are catching on to this racket…

    it is the realization that we want the government out of our lives and we want to be left alone to decide how to take care of ourselves and in addition, decide how to spend our money and for what kind of healthcare or treatments we choose…when we choose it…

    O and Dims…just get the hell out of our lives and pocketbooks…and wallets…go work on the economy and jobs…instead of forcing this down our throats and making the economy and jobs situation worse…

    and O and the Dims…stop wasting our taxpayer money without ANY ACCOUNTABILITY AT ALL…

    Think back to the 2008 primary. Remember the two deaths that occurred on the eve of the election. One was Bill Gwatney a leader of the Arkansas delegation. The other was Stephanie Tubbs Jones who was a prominent and respected black congresswoman from Ohio. Both were staunch Hillary supporters and the word was they were going to lead a floor fight, but before that could happen both of them died. Mysteriously. Gwatney was killed by an unknown black assailent who had no connection to him, and there was no motive extant. He was killed by the Arkansas police in a high speed chase.

    The murder of Gwatney seemed to raise no serious questions except among us Hillary supporters back in 2008. Tubb-Jones death got a little more notice, but foul play was never considered. It’s hard to believe that there are not others out there who also found these deaths far to coincidental. I hope at some point, more info on this will emerge.

    There were other strange deaths – guy in Denver hotel found dead during convention week. And of course several members of the goddam America church of Jeremiah.

    Question: what do Madison Roots and Sandra Fluke have in common?

    Answer: absolutely, positively nothing.

    How are they different?

    Fluke is a dead-ender. She asks what can my country do for me?

    Madison is an agent of real hope and change. She asks what can I do for my country?

    Fluke is a dead-ender.

    Big media loves Fluke, because she represents big government, and big media loves big government.

  62. Obama learned nothing of courage and conviction from Mandela. He used him to paint a false narrative like everyone else he used along the way to portray himself as something he is not. Mandela was a man of principle unlike Obama who has none.

    He is King Obama. As king, he is entitled to use Mandela and MLK as props in the cult fantasy world which he and big media have constructed to bamboozle the masses. From the beginning, I did not like it, because he never measured up to their stature. Lately however I find it rather revolting. If a devil can quote scripture then Obama can seize the occasion to conflate himself with leaders of substance, hoping the public will not recognize the difference. So far, he has not been disappointed. It is customary for a president to attend the funeral of a world leader. What is offensive is when a charlatan like Obama uses the death to promote his own power–like this:

  64. That is correct wbboei. I read an article yesterday about Obama’s photos and how the White House now prevents real photographers from capturing certain pictures, but instead releases an official White House photo. Essentially, these are staged photos and do not carry the historical significance of other presidents captured in truly spontaneous moments. They are a fake reality. I am convinced more than ever that the current generation of low information people in general are here to stay and people like the Kardashians are the heroes and the Mandelas and other true heroes will long be forgotten. When all you see everyday are kids walking around with pounding headphones or looking down on their Mobile phones , lacking the fundamental skills of being able to understand anything other than the make believe “reality” culture they have grown up in, I realize the battle has been lost . It’s over as far this country’s future is concerned.

  65. Older Democratic Aides up in Arms Over Obamacare Costs
    Friday, 22 Nov 2013 11:07 AM
    By Lisa Barron

    “Older Democratic congressional aides are stunned by how much more they will have to pay for health insurance under Obamacare, and party chiefs of staff are now calling for an amendment to the rules.”

    “In a shock to the system, the older staff in my office (folks over 59) have now found out their personal health insurance costs (even with the government contribution) have gone up three to four times what they were paying before,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin, wrote to other Democratic chiefs of staff in an email, reports Politico, which obtained a copy of the message.

    Ta said that many older staffers may leave their jobs as a result. “I am asking for a solution now because I will lose staff in my office because of this snafu,” he wrote in the email.

  66. I have reached a point with this POTUS where NOTHING surprises me with him. But when you throw the CHILDREN under the bus..the latest Obama screw-up with an assist from “Tingles” Matthews:

    “A group of young ballerinas rehearsing for “The Nutcracker” was kicked out of American University’s theatre so MSNBC host Chris Matthews could interview President Obama on Thursday.

    American University admitted they dumped Ballet Petite’s two final dress rehearsals so they could host MSNBC’s “Hardball College Tour.” Matthews will be presiding over a one-hour conversation with the man he’s likened to President Kennedy’s last brother, President Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ.

    The ballet company had been scheduled to rehearse on Wednesday and Thursday in preparation for their opening performance on Sunday.

    For a group of politicians so well versed in optics, the Obama administration seems to be legally blind. Are you telling me there was no other place to host Matthews and the man who makes his leg all tingly?
    Instead, the girls will be forced to hold their final dress rehearsals on the same day as their opening performance.

    Melissa Carney, the ballet company’s artistic director told The Washington Post they had signed a contract to rent the theatre in January. They were told they were being shoved out so Matthews could interview Obama on Tuesday.

    “They did not ask,” she told the Post. “They told us.”

    I understand the problem. But I am completely unsympathetic. These grievants helped engineer Obamacare. What they call a tragedy, I call justice. In a really just world, however, they alone would bear the cost of this improvident venture. Either way, I am unmoved by their tragedy.

    If they are anything like Mitch McConnell’s staff–and I have no doubt they are, then sure as day follows night, these “folks” will suck up enough perks from lobbyists to get by. And when they retire they will go to work for lobbyists and help McConnell from the other side of the transaction.

    When the civilized tribes went to Washington after the Civil War to see the great white father, they complained to him about how he had broken his promises which had left them without land food and shelter. After posing for pictures and headlines, the great white father told them you must endeavor to persevere.

    Where Obamacare is concerned, many of these dimocrat staffers were stark enthusiasts for Obamacare, until the effects hit home. Therefore, they too should stop the bellyaching and endeavor to persevere.

  68. Oh no! PETA? Greenpeace? Sierra Club? Doesn’t anybody care about the eagles? This looks like another attempt by this regime to do away with another American tradition.

    Administration close to finalizing rule to give wind farms a pass on killing eagles for decades

    The Obama administration is moving toward finalizing a rule that would give alternative energy farms a pass for killing bald and golden eagles for decades, just weeks after it took legal action for the first time against a company for doing so.

    The rule by the Interior Department extends the length of the permits that allow farms to unintentionally kill the eagles without penalty from five to 30 years, according to department records.

    The rule authorizes the “non-purposeful” killing of eagles, but also will require farms to implement certain guidelines to help with eagle conservation. The White House finalized its review of the rule Thursday, The Hill reports.

    An official with the Interior Department tells The Hill the department has been working for more than a year on the proposal with stakeholders.

    The Obama administration, which has been a big supporter of green energy initiatives, faced backlash in August from environmental groups over the 30-year permit proposal. The Hill reports supporters argued the White House needed to better research the effects alternative energy companies could have on the environment.

    The administration last month also prosecuted its first case against an energy company for killing 14 golden eagles, which get sucked into the farm’s wind turbines accidentally while they are hunting prey.

    Duke Energy agreed to pay $1 million for killing the birds over the past three years at two Wyoming wind farms. The company pled guilty to misdemeanor charges under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

    A study by federal biologists this year found that wind energy facilities in 10 states had killed at least 67 golden and bald eagles since 2008, according to the Associated Press.

    About The Tea Party Leadership Fund

    In 2009, Americans from all walks of life came together and proclaimed they had had enough. The government had grown too big and too intrusive and too many people were depending on it to make their decisions for them.

    The movement took on the name the “Tea Party.” But there is much confusion about our movement. There is no single Tea Party, it is comprised of thousands of individual groups all across America who share common values such as limited government, individual freedom, personal responsibility, and returning political power to the states and the people.

    The Tea Party Leadership Fund is a leader in this freedom movement – an outgrowth of TheTeaParty.Net, the Leadership Fund applies the same values to supporting the election of strong Conservatives nationwide – putting your nationwide support into local action.

    We are dedicated to recruiting Americans who share the Founding Fathers vision of America as a beacon of liberty and hope throughout the world. We are a grassroots movements bringing ordinary citizens together to advance fundamentally American values. We are not a political party and are not beholden to any party or politician. We seek to reform the entire political environment from the bottom up and return political power to where it was always intended: the American people.

    The rhetoric here is so Obama-esque – starting out with factual info and then rolling themselves into it.

  71. Footnote. Just noticed TheTeaParty.Net which is familiar. But is there not also a TeaParty.Net? IDK and I despise this nebulous age which Obama has so enthusiastically energized. 🙁

    Congressmen: Hearing comes Dec. 6 to Apache Junction
    By Paul Gosar and Darrell Issa Our Turn Thu Dec 5, 2013 4:12 PM
    Since’s disastrous launch Oct. 1, Americans have expressed outrage that this administration spent hundreds of millions on a poorly functioning website. But the real problem, as people across the country are discovering, is the law itself.
    Since passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, Americans have seen President Obama and other health law supporters deliver speech after speech about who the law will benefit without acknowledging that the law will not work for everyone.
    The Oversight Committee is in Apache Junction Dec. 6 to hear the other side of the story from individuals who have felt the impact of increased premiums and dropped insurance coverage as a result of “Obamacare.”….

  73. Obama-Mandella–two peas in a pod, two world class black leaders separated by a continent, one took a stand by opposing colonialism, the other took a stand by telling all kinds of whoppers about the sperm donor he never knew and imbibing in the corruption of the most corrupt city in North America. One is a life, the other an imitation of life. Yes, they are exactly alike. Except for five (5) little things. And what all does this prove? It proves once again that big media who conflates the two in conjunction with the white house is corrupt to the point as to be laughable. On that point, the evidence is cumulative and impeaching–assuming that by now there is anything left to impeach.

    Top 5 Ways Barack Obama Is No Nelson Mandela

    by Joel B. Pollak 6 Dec 2013

    The comparison is so crude as to be laughable, but given the mainstream media’s immediate linkage of the two, and President Barack Obama’s insistence on talking about himself in his eulogy for Nelson Mandela, it must be said: Obama is no Mandela.

    For one thing, their societies are different: the U.S. bears no resemblance to post-apartheid South Africa. For another, Mandela chose to govern differently from Obama in many key respects.

    1. Mandela was a uniter, Obama is a divider. Mandela was not above playing racial politics at times, but generally did all he could to bring people together, in both real and symbolic ways. He famously donned the Springbok rugby jersey, once a symbol hated by blacks, to show solidarity with whites. Mandela left South Africa more united than when he took office. Obama will leave the U.S. more divided than when he began.

    2. Mandela obeyed the constitution and the courts, Obama flouts both. Mandela not only signed a constitution that guaranteed individual rights and constraints on state power, but made an impressive show of subjecting his administration to the will of the courts. Obama, by contrast, is “becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid,” ignoring court rulings and greatly expanding his executive powers.

    3. Mandela was fiscally responsible, Obama is profligate. Mandela’s administration adopted a policy of macroeconomic stability in 1995, putting sound budgets and economic growth before redistribution, resisting massive internal pressure to spend liberally on the poor. Obama, by contrast, has expanded the national debt massively, with little to show for it in either terms of economic growth or addressing economic inequality.

    4. Mandela reached out to the opposition, Obama ignores them. Mandela fought pitched political battles, first with F. W. de Klerk’s National Party and then with Tony Leon’s centrist Democratic Party (now the Democratic Alliance under Helen Zille). Yet he reached out constantly to his opponents and met frequently with them. Obama, however, barely bothers to consult his opponents and makes a point of marginalizing them.

    5. Mandela was humble, Obama is arrogant. South Africans share stories of seeing Mandela walking down the highway on his daily exercise, or being greeted warmly by him as if by an old friend. He was a larger-than-life figure who was self-effacing, if dignified, in his bearing. Obama, however, built himself a fake Greek temple and refers to himself constantly, elevating himself crudely above the nation he was elected to lead.

    Mandela and Obama do share some failings common to most leftist leaders. Mandela passed labor laws that the unions loved but which held back job creation. He tried to offer “free” housing and a “right” to health care, and the result was poor housing and the spread of HIV/Aids. Like Obama, Mandela had a soft spot for the tyrants of the world, including Fidel Castro and Yasser Arafat, who had supported Mandela’s banned movement in exile.

    Yet the contrast is striking. Mandela could have been an inspirational, radical, but ultimately failed political leader, an African Che Guevara. Instead, he chose to be a statesman, dropping revolution for reconciliation. Obama will endure as a historical figure but not as a great president. At almost every turn, he has chosen to pursue failed and outdated ideologies instead of seizing the opportunity to restore America’s potential.

  74. As Messiah Obama devolves from a DEMIGOD–to a GOD THAT FAILED, the pertinent question becomes:

    How did it come to pass that the most powerful nation in history got sucked into the vortex by this four flusher?

    By the grace of an ironic deity, his past transgressions went unnoticed.

    What has taken him down is his signature legislation, i.e. Obamacare–which is destroying our health care system.

    It is highly unlikely that he can rebound to the status of even a mediocre president.

    The hard facts auger, i.e. national debt, unemployment, foreign policy, health care, etc. all auger against it.

    For those who believed him to be a god, or a positive change agent, this presents a come to Jesus moment.

    But for them, it is just too painful, so they will brush aside the question–and learn nothing from their mistake.

    Notice how at the level of mass culture his status has been downgraded.

    Time was you could not walk past a magazine counter without seeing his mug on a dozen magazines.

    Not so now. His picture is conspicuous by its absence.

    Some of us have seen though this scam from the beginning.

    We have an obligation to explain what happened for those who cannot or will not see it.

    This assumes that we care about the future of the country, rather than just ourselves.

    Let me throw out three (3) concepts that shed new light on the matter:

    1. consensus reality–as opposed to empirical reality, e.g. big media conflating him with Mandela. This allows people to be manipulated into saying and doing things which are not in their interest.

    2. cult behavior–Obama is scion of the hard left–like Nazism what we are dealing with is not a political movement but a cult. A cult does not disappear just because it loses a military or political contest. It is like a virus, which lies dormant for a period of time, and then when the immune system is weak it reasserts itself.

    3. sinister forces–how does a man with no background rise to the pinnacle of power in a few short years? Whose agenda does that serve? And what is their agenda vis a vis America, and ultimately toward us. I have assumed the risk of being labeled a conspiracy nut, in order to address some of these question. I do not ask anyone to accept my answers. However, I do suggest that they consider these questions in the course of their own thinking.

  75. That should be the opening sentence of any serious discussion on the subject of politics. The evidence is clear, cogent and convincing.

  76. Comprehensively Yours

    Michael Walsh, PJ Media


    With the reins of power in their hands since David Axelrod, the Jake Lingle of his day, gave the country the unasked-for and unwanted Trojan Horse of Barack Obama. (snip)

    Now, five years later, we’re getting a pretty good idea of what that “fundamental transformation” entails: the remaking of the U.S. into a nation of billionaires and beggars, of “public servants” and supplicants, of an imperial capital in the reign of the Emperor Hussein and a threadbare, exploited heartland, which exists at the sufferance of its betters on the coasts. All predictable, if you understood back in 2008 who Obama was and whom he represented.

    There’s been a good deal of head-scratching on the Right regarding the “nuclear option,” which Harry Reid — probably the most corrupt man in American politics — recently exercised. (The GOP had its chance, remember, but it was thwarted by our old friend John McCain and his Gang of 14 back in 2005.) Why, the thinking goes, did Reid pull the trigger on a naked power grab when he must know that it will come back to bite him and his party when the GOP retakes the Senate? The thought never seems to occur to them that Reid & Co. have no intention of ever being in the minority again.

  77. remaking of the U.S. into a nation of billionaires and beggars, of “public servants” and supplicants, of an imperial capital in the reign of the Emperor Hussein and a threadbare, exploited heartland, which exists at the sufferance of its betters on the coasts.
    Big media is the propaganda tool of the very people who are stealing our future. They have completed their march through the institutions of society. And under dear leader, they are moving in for the kill. In the real world, the failure of Obamacare, and how he deceived the American People on this important point in order to get elected is the relevant story. Obama’s junket to Mandela’s funeral, is a back page story. But this is how big media diverts. The Italian Marxist Gramsci spoke of how stupid it was for the working class to buy the bourgeois newspapers which were laced with upper class lies and propaganda. It is imperative that the middle class–if there is to be one, ignore big media for the same reason. It gets back to the concept of consensus reality (supra).

  78. wbboei, I always make a special effort to read your comments and am seldom dissapointed.

    I imagine you already have read this astonshing post, but incase you haven’t here is a link:

    I hope you read the whole thing but if you are short of time scroll down to the paragraph that starts with: “There are still some among you reading this that remember those days of 1940, and 1941, and 1942, when all seemed lost; before the Greatest Generation rode out to do battle with Evil Incarnate.” and be reminded of what Churchill said. And gain again an glimpse of true leadership.

    The last line reminds me of you: Fight them. Not forever. Just today.
