The Vastness Of The Trump Revolution Is Immeasurable

Consider this article the latest in our long running series “Mistake In ’08” or proof that we have been so absolutely brilliant in our long running “Situation Comedy” series of analysis. Herein we discuss the 10 year plan that failed again, the 40 year plan that failed again, the cremation of the Democratic Party, the Clinton coalition renamed the Trump coalition, and assorted disasters inflicted by President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Revolution upon his enemies.

* * * * * *

Archimedes postulated that if he had a lever long enough and firm ground underneath he could move the world. In that spirit we note that if we had a measuring tape that could circumnavigate the political world it would fall short of measuring the immeasurable Trump triumph of 2016.

Those demonstrations and riots against the presidential election which resulted in President-elect Donald J. Trump? Excellent, most excellent. Those demonstrations are the death rattle of the Obamas choking in their own feces.

To try to measure the Obama catastrophe, the Mistake in ’08, we begin with the very premise of the Obama destruction of the Democratic Party in 2008. Recall that Obama and the Obamaroids rejected the FDR coalition and the updates to that coalition implemented by JFK and Bill Clinton. The new Obama coalition was “the coalition of the ascendant” which we declared to be nothing but a cult of personality.

There is no doubt now that we were right about “the coalition of the ascendant” being a “creative class” cult of personality for a tin plated wannabee “transformational” flim-flam man. The proof? The elections of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. In the election years 2008 and 2012 the Obama cult successfully elected their tin plated object of worship. But that cult, that “coalition of the ascendant” was not transferable and in 2009, 2010!!!, 2014!!!, and 2016 without Obama explicitly on the ballot, the cult of the ascendant failed.

Remember what that “coalition of the ascendant” was? We explained it and the disasters for the Democratic Party that would result back in 2008’s Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy. That new coalition for the Democratic Party was blacks, young white liberals, enough Latinos, and the gentry class in the suburbs protected by wealth and class from their foolish choices.

We explained it all in “The Shield Maiden Of Chappaqua”:

For years we explained (see, “Mistake In ’08” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII, and the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV) that to build and grow a political party you first gather a core constituency then slowly grow the party by the addition of like-minded individuals and groups which share those interests of the core constituency.

The modern Democratic Party built by Franklin Delano Roosevelt had as a core constituency the white working class. This working class provided the party of FDR with guideposts on policy and guided the party in everything it did. The working class core of the party was white because it reflected the same characteristics as the general population.

Over the years groups were added to the FDR coalition. Senior citizens joined in on the coalition attracted by promises such as “Social Security”. In the 1960s John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a Boston Brahmin added black Americans into the Democratic Party fold with some deft politicking (and his father’s vast wealth) which smudged away the racist past of the party. JFK grew the Democratic Party by addition not subtraction.

In 2008, Barack Obama and assorted kooks decided to purposefully destroy the Democratic Party of FDR. Barack Obama and these kooks willfully embraced the idea of the new “coalition of the ascendant”. This “coalition of the ascendant” and their interests – which conflicted with the interests of the FDR coalition – made it necessary to kick out core Democratic Party constituencies such as senior citizens and the white working class.

The Barack Obama coalition slogan was a variation of the race riot 1960s slogan “burn, baby, burn”.

By the time of our last installment of “Mistake In ’08” we fearlessly declared:

What happened in 2008 is not a question of historical interpretation. The “mistake in ’08” is the defining question for 2016.

Now the question[s] has been answered. The Mistake In ’08 is the greatest political miscalculation in American history that led to the destruction of the world’s oldest political party and the ascension of the new Trump Republican Party. That Hillary2016 did not read and absorb the lessons we wrote about, particularly in that last Mistake In ’08 article is why Hillary2016 failed and why Hillary Clinton deserved to lose.

In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we wrote:

The selection of Barack Obama is an historical mistake which will continue to unravel the Dimocratic Party for generations. Only now are honest Democrats beginning to assess the damage done. “Mistake In ’08” is the first installment in a multi-part series which will detail how big a mistake was self-inflicted by Democrats in 2008.

The consequences of that “Mistake In ’08” are many, as we now begin to describe.

* * * * * *

The 10 year plan. In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we discussed “the 10 year plan”:

What was that 10-year plan?

The six letter word is “census”. “The Census is the count of the US population conducted every ten years mandated by the Constitution. Redistricting is the process of drawing political borders to reflect changes in population.” Post-census redistricting was the Democratic 10 year plan which Obama has already effectively destroyed. 10 years of planning gone in a puff of smoke.

The 10 year plan for 2010, as we predicted in 2009, was destroyed by Barack Obama. In 2010 an entire generation of Democrats was beheaded and Republicans won a massive victory. This meant the Republicans would determine the redistricted lines for congressional districts after the 2010 census. The Republicans redistricted and ensured a Republican House of Representatives for the foreseeable future.

The next census will be in 2020 and already we can safely predict more Republican victories and another failure for the Dimocrats 10 year plan.

By the way, did we mention that white millennials voted for Donald J. Trump?:

This comes as evidence mounts that US millennials are more likely to identify as conservative than either Generation Xers or Baby Boomers were at the same age. [snip]

Trump’s level of support amongst white college-educated voters and white female voters was also unexpected.

CNN’s data put the Republican candidate ahead by 10 points among white women (among black women he was 90 points behind). Trump also polled 15 points ahead of Clinton among white male college graduates.

Trump also gained vast margins among white voters without college degrees.

In other words, as we wrote in October of 2015, Donald J. Trump walked away with the winning “Clinton Coalition” which Hillary Clinton stupidly discarded in favor of the Obama kookdom:

As we predicted long before conventional wisdom caught up to us this past weekend – Yes, Donald Trump looks to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. [snip]

The white working class should have been the bedrock of Hillary2016. The white working class support for Hillary Clinton in 2008 provided grand victories of 40 point margins when Hillary was most wounded. Now Hillary2016 has repeatedly abandoned those voters. [snip]

The bedrock of a winning coalition, the people Barack Obama dismissed in 2008 as “bitter” and clinging to their guns and Bibles, used to be the FDR coalition and the Clinton coalition. No longer. They are now part of the Trump Triumph. Hillary2016 has abandoned them so they have abandoned her. [snip]

In 2008 Hillary Clinton survived and thrived because she marched alongside the white working class. Now, the white working class is marching with Donald J. Trump – towards victory.

The real ascendant are ascendant for Trump. And therein lies the most catastrophic consequences for Barack Obama, the Clintons, Big Media, and the Dimocrats/Democrats.

Remember our argument that the FDR coalition which JFK and Bill Clinton built upon was the winning coalition? There is another aspect of the FDR victories which Democrats have dreamed of recreating. Think of it as a 40 year plan which led to the “Mistake In ’08” and other disasters. James Carville outlined the modest 40 year plan:

Now, no less a pundit than James Carville has stepped into the breach with his new book, 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation, an extended boast that demographic trends, particularly the partisan preferences of young people, will ensure an era of Democratic dominance.

A Democratic majority is emerging,” Carville declares. “This majority will guarantee that the Democrats remain in power for the next forty years.

Carville admitted after the 2010 elections that the 40 years boast would not come to pass. The failures of 2009 and 2010 forced Carville to that admission. But that boast was not the real 40 year plan.

The real 40 year plan was that Democrats had to win in 2008 and thereby replicate the lasting victories of FDR. The Democrats thought if they gifted the nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama great things would happen. It was a “make Democrats great again” plan. The delusion was this: Barack Obama and the coalition of the ascendant would win in 2008 and soon there would be an economic revival such that Democrats would get all the credit. This would lead to 40 years of voters rewarding the Democratic Party with victory just as voters rewarded Democrats for 40 years after FDR – until it all came crashing down with the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in 1994.

Of course, Barack Obama bungled the supposed economic recovery. In 2008 Obama inflicted his flim-flam stimulus and the deadly ObamaCare plans on the nation. Both such disasters that by the time they passed the nation revolted and rewarded Republicans.

The failed Obama economy of the first term did not sober up the Dimocrats. This time they were doubly sure of the 40 year plan. The thinking was “well, it didn’t work in 2008 but boy oh boy it will work in 2012 for sure by golly”. Again the notion was that in 2012 Barack Obama would win reelection and that would lead to a massive economic recovery and once again the Democrats would get the credit, as they got the credit for FDR, and that economic revival would lead to 40 years of voter rewards and endless power for Obama Dimocrats.

Now the 40 year plan works in favor of President-elect Donald J. Trump. If, as we suspect, President Donald J. Trump leads the nation to a great economic boom and lives up to “Make America Great Again” it will be President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans who will be rewarded for generations by the voters.

Already we see the road is clear for a massive generations-long Republican victory under the banner of President Donald J. Trump. How? The Dimocrats in 2016 knew they had to, had to, win the Senate. That’s because in 2018 there will be 25 Dimocrats up for reelection, many in Republican states, while only eight Republicans, mostly in red states, will be up for reelection.

So many endangered Dimocrats will make it easy for President Donald J. Trump to force his will on them. We expect Donald J. Trump Republicans will win at least 13 of those Senate seats in 2018 and build a super majority in the Senate that will last a very long time. In the House, the Republicans will redistrict after President Donald J. Trump is reelected and thereby keep their majorities for generations. The Supreme Court appointments by President Donald J. Trump will mean conservative majorities for generations as well.

The Obama controlled Dimocratic Party response to this catastrophic series of easily predictable events? A Muslim left wing loon to run the Obama Dimocrat Party.

The temper tantrum loons in the streets protesting the election of Donald J. Trump and those losers who can’t go to work or take exams because they are so very distraught are on to something. Deep down they realize that they are lost for generations and that Barack Obama is the tin plated calf god that failed. What they don’t realize is that the more they protest the more they help President-elect Donald J. Trump by alienating the American voter. The lessons of the failures of the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter loons are lessons lost on these latest loons and kooks.

President-elect Donald J. Trump has accomplished many great victories already. President Donald J. Trump’s victories are so many, so immeasurable, even he might get tired of winning.

Secrets Revealed

Update: Bad news: GOP presidential candidate, spouse are traffic scofflaws, or something. In 2008 the New York Times did not care that Barack Obama got 17 parking tickets. But Marco Rubio and wife get 17 parking tickets and the New York Times goes to print. Disgusting. We wrote about this “secret” at the end of our article but it is now getting some traction on Twitter and assorted kook sites so we thought someone should remind the world of the New York Times lack of coverage on Obama’s 17 violations.

——————————————————

The reveal of silly “secrets” get more attention than the real secrets. Why is that? Probably because the silly “secrets” were real secrets and therefore a surprise while the important “secrets” have been known for a long time even though no one dared speak the truth in words.

Forthwith some “secrets” revealed:

Our regular readers won’t think this first one a secret at all. We’ve been writing about this for so long only Bruce Jenner could possibly be surprised by this secret:

Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study. [snip]

The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. [snip]

The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups.

We don’t believe for a moment that the reason Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood is because he is so stupid he thinks the Muslim Brotherhood is good for “political reform in the Middle East”. We’ve written about why we think Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood.

The good news is that Egypt plans to execute Muslim Brotherhood leader Morsi. But that is not the only good news. Here is another secret we wrote about before it was a revealed secret:

Israelis and Saudis Reveal Secret Talks to Thwart Iran

Since the beginning of 2014, representatives from Israel and Saudi Arabia have had five secret meetings to discuss a common foe, Iran. On Thursday, the two countries came out of the closet by revealing this covert diplomacy at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.

Among those who follow the Middle East closely, it’s been an open secret that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in thwarting Iran. But until Thursday, actual diplomacy between the two was never officially acknowledged. Saudi Arabia still doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist. Israel has yet to accept a Saudi-initiated peace offer to create a Palestinian state.

It was not a typical Washington think-tank event. No questions were taken from the audience. After an introduction, there was a speech in Arabic from Anwar Majed Eshki, a retired Saudi general and ex-adviser to Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Then Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations who is slotted to be the next director general of Israel’s foreign ministry, gave a speech in English.

While these men represent countries that have been historic enemies, their message was identical: Iran is trying to take over the Middle East and it must be stopped.

Why is Saudi Arabia, which has opposed the very existence of Israel since the founding in 1948 of the modern Jewish state, openly talking to Israel? Because, as the article’s author Eli Lake writes, Saudi Arabia knows it can trust Israel, not Obama, to oppose Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Of less consequence to the world but still a surprise that few have noticed is something going on in Baltimore:

Everyone who works in the Baltimore mayor’s office is quitting

Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is having a problem with retaining her staff.

Ever since she helped bring the hammer down on six Baltimore police officers over the accidental death of Freddie Gray, four members on her Office on Criminal Justice have resigned. As in, her four highest-ranking cabinet members have each resigned, one by one, over a three-week period. That does not paint a pretty picture on what regard the Baltimore mayor is held in with her staff members.

Time for a name change? Baltiless? Balt-no-more?

The prosecutor in the case is trying with all her might to keep secret the autopsy report and other relevant information in the Freddie Gray case but secrets have a way of coming out when you least expect them. Maybe it’s time prosecutor Mosby join the Mayor’s top staff at the exit line.

We’re not going to hold our breaths waiting for the autopsy report from Balt-no-more. We’re waiting for the ObamaCare autopsy report in the form of the soon to be Supreme Court decision in King v. Burwell. Talk about an unrevealed secret. There’s been so much news about the ObamaCare death spiral and the much higher premium rates lately that it is almost as if the Supreme Court won’t have to do anything to finish off ObamaCare. As we have written before, for the very reasons we cited, ObamaCare is so bad it has now killed the possibility of single payer:

Just a few years ago, lawmakers in this left-leaning state viewed President Obama’s Affordable Care Act as little more than a pit stop on the road to a far more ambitious goal: single-payer, universal health care for all residents.

Then things unraveled. The online insurance marketplace that Vermont built to enroll people in private coverage under the law had extensive technical failures. The problems soured public and legislative enthusiasm for sweeping health care changes just as Gov. Peter Shumlin needed to build support for his complex single-payer plan. Finally, Mr. Shumlin, a Democrat, shelved the plan in December, citing the high cost to taxpayers. He called the decision “the greatest disappointment of my political life.” [snip]

But even though its residents’ subsidies appear safe for now, Vermont stands as a cautionary tale. Despite an eventual cost of up to $200 million in federal funds, its online marketplace, or exchange, is still not fully functional, while disgust with the system is running deep among residents and lawmakers alike.

Meanwhile, the hopes for a single-payer system, once tantalizingly close, may be lost for years. Under such a system, the government operates one health insurance plan for all residents, covering their medical costs instead of having private insurers do it.

Is anyone surprised?

Also on the health care front, a story we reported on during the 2014 elections was the sale of over-the-counter contraception. Many believed it was just a GOP ploy to get votes. But lo and behold there is now legislation designed to make contraceptives cheaper for women and easier to obtain. The dirty secret? Planned Parenthood profits and NARAL profits are threatened. So, war on women:

Why Liberals Oppose Over-the-Counter Birth Control

The supposedly pro-woman Left has erupted into fury this past week, denouncing new legislation proposed by Senator Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) that seeks to encourage over-the-counter status for birth control. Salon’s Katie McDonough called the senator perpetually “full of s**t.” Planned Parenthood’s president claimed that the bill “is a sham and an insult to women.” NARAL Pro-Choice America’s president called the idea “nothing but political pandering to trick women and families into thinking we are covered while dismantling one of the most critical gains in the Affordable Care Act.” And Slate’s Amanda Marcotte called it “just a feint.”

The Left’s reflexive criticism of Gardner’s plan derives from a deep public-sector and special-interest-backed paternalism that wants to control women’s health choices just as much as any other supposed patriarchy.

Removing the pharmacy-counter barrier between women and their birth control would give them vastly more, not less, power over their own health-care choices, also reducing health-care costs and improving access.

Right now, the federal government requires a prescription for birth control, even though other over-the-counter drugs (acetaminophen, for example) bear higher health risks, the directions are straightforward, and there’s no risk of overdose. [snip]

Planned Parenthood alone makes around $1.2 billion each year from contraceptive services.

Are men compelled to take prostate exams, testicular cancer tests, penis health tests, every time they buy condoms? No, but women have to get approval from a doctor to buy contraception. As we noted in 2014, Planned Parenthood has become Planned Profits. Another dirty secret revealed. We wonder what rapist Bernie Sanders has to say about this?

Did we say “dirty”? The EPA comes clean:

The Environmental Protection Agency’s long-awaited report on fracking dismayed liberal green groups Thursday while pleasing the oil and gas industry — the latest episode in both sides’ fraught relationship with President Barack Obama.

The study, more than four years in the making, said the EPA has found no signs of “widespread, systemic” drinking water pollution from hydraulic fracturing. That conclusion dramatically runs afoul of one of the great green crusades of the past half-decade, which has portrayed the oil- and gas-extraction technique as a creator of fouled drinking water wells and flame-shooting faucets.

Thursday’s congressionally mandated EPA report, a compilation of past studies, found isolated incidents in which water pollution was attributable to the use of fracking. But it failed to back up the idea that fracking poses a major threat to water supplies, contradicting years of activists’ warnings dramatized by images of burning tap water in the Oscar-nominated documentary “Gasland.”

For those who refuse to accept the “science” of fracking there is an alternative. It’s an alternative that according to another study many Americans are taking:

The Enormous Scope of Our National Drinking Problem
A large new study suggests we’re in denial regarding this important health issue.

Nearly three out of 10 Americans have shown evidence of a serious alcohol-related problem at some point in their lives, and only one-fifth of those have sought professional help.

Those sobering statistics are found in a study just published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry. It’s the first comprehensive look at the widespread problem of Alcohol Use Disorder, as newly defined by the American Psychiatric Association.

Due to changing criteria, and past studies showing differing results, trends regarding alcohol-related problems are difficult to definitively discern. But just on their own, the latest numbers are staggering.

At first we refused to believe this study about our national drunks. But as we shoulder pushed our shopping cart at the market, heavily laden with Belgian chocolates, Champagne, and caviar, we were dumbstruck at the checkout line. There it was. A data point in favor of the study. On one of those tabloid magazines near the cashier. We nearly fainted. We were light-headed. We almost opened up some of the bubbly to drink for medicinal purposes.

No it was not the breathless New York Times report that Marco Rubio and his wife got 17 traffic tickets. The New York Times in 2008 and since did not care a whit about Barack Obama’s 17 parking tickets so we knew it was political hypocrisy not drunk driving responsible for such a headline. No what caught our eyes was Hillary.

Yup, it appears Hillary is a drunk. It breaks our hearts to report this top secret. But, Hillary is a drunk. She admits it. She has confessed. Hillary’s confession can be read at The Globe:

BOMBSHELL! HILLARY CLINTON CONFESSES: ‘I’M AN ALCOHOLIC!’

Presidential contender Hillary Clinton is hiding a devastating health issue from voters – she’s an alcoholic and secretly went to detox before announcing her run for the White House. Get more about Hillary’s shocking confession, her medical issues — and SEE a shocking photo showing why she’s not fit to run America. ONLY in this issue of GLOBE.

We’re in tears. She’s confessed. WHAT WILL HILLARY’S ALIEN BABY SAY? This is going to devastate interplanetary diplomatic relations for decades. What will Hillary’s lesbian lover, Yoko Ono, say? This could endanger international diplomatic relations for decades.

Some secrets are best kept hidden.

Mistake In ’08, Part IX: Capitulation And The Lessons For Hillary Clinton 2016

The whores admit they’re infected with “the pox”. The last of the Obama hold-outs from 2008 capitulate to our argument. It’s over. Our analysis about 2008 prevails. Their analysis about 2008 has fallen. It’s all over. Hillary Clinton 2016 take note.

John B. Judis, one of the loons who sold the Democratic Party of FDR a turd covered in gold flakes, admits he was wrong:

The Emerging Republican Advantage
The idea of an enduring Democratic majority was a mirage. How the GOP gained an edge in American politics—and why it’s likely to last. [snip]

American parties routinely go through periods of ascendancy, decline, and deadlock. From 1896 to 1930, the Republican Party reigned supreme; from 1932 to 1968, the New Deal Democrats dominated; following a period of deadlock, the Reagan Republicans held sway during the 1980s. After the parties exchanged the White House, Democrats appeared to take command of American politics in 2008. In that election, Obama and the Democrats won not only the White House but also large majorities in the Senate and House, plus a decided edge in governor’s mansions and state legislatures.

At the time, some commentators, including me, hailed the onset of an enduring Democratic majority. And the arguments in defense of this view did seem to be backed by persuasive evidence. Obama and the Democrats appeared to have captured the youngest generation of voters, whereas Republicans were relying disproportionately on an aging coalition. The electorate’s growing ethnic diversity also seemed likely to help the Democrats going forward.

These advantages remain partially in place for Democrats today, but they are being severely undermined by two trends that have emerged in the past few elections—one surprising, the other less so.

Judis is excuse making when he writes that the “trends” he now sees “have emerged in the past few elections”. No. The trends were clear in 2007 in polls and in 2008 in exit polls as well. We saw what Judis refused to see and we wrote about it repeatedly:

For years we explained (see, “Mistake In ’08” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII, and the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV) that to build and grow a political party you first gather a core constituency then slowly grow the party by the addition of like-minded individuals and groups which share those interests of the core constituency.

The modern Democratic Party built by Franklin Delano Roosevelt had as a core constituency the white working class. This working class provided the party of FDR with guideposts on policy and guided the party in everything it did. The working class core of the party was white because it reflected the same characteristics as the general population.

Over the years groups were added to the FDR coalition. Senior citizens joined in on the coalition attracted by promises such as “Social Security”. In the 1960s John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a Boston Brahmin added black Americans into the Democratic Party fold with some deft politicking (and his father’s vast wealth) which smudged away the racist past of the party. JFK grew the Democratic Party by addition not subtraction.

In 2008, Barack Obama and assorted kooks decided to purposefully destroy the Democratic Party of FDR. Barack Obama and these kooks willfully embraced the idea of the new “coalition of the ascendant”. This “coalition of the ascendant” and their interests – which conflicted with the interests of the FDR coalition – made it necessary to kick out core Democratic Party constituencies such as senior citizens and the white working class.

The Barack Obama coalition slogan was a variation of the race riot 1960s slogan “burn, baby, burn”.

If Hillary Clinton 2016 comes into existence this July or later, the campaign strategy better consider our arguments and the ones that John Judis concedes he did not foresee. What happened in 2008 is not a question of historical interpretation. The “mistake in ’08” is the defining question for 2016.

In our last “Mistake in ’08” article we noted how Ruy Teixiera raised the white flag of surrender as he tried to rewrite his history and pretended he always understood the importance of the white working class vote. Now it is John Judis who pretends that he kinda sorta always believed in the importance of the white working class vote:

The less surprising trend is that Democrats have continued to hemorrhage support among white working-class voters—a group that generally works in blue-collar and lower-income service jobs and that is roughly identifiable in exit polls as those whites who have not graduated from a four-year college. These voters, and particularly those well above the poverty line, began to shift toward the GOP decades ago, but in recent years that shift has become progressively more pronounced. [snip]

To win elections, Democrats have still needed between 36 and 40 percent nationally of the white working-class vote—which, in practice, meant totals in the twenties or even the teens in the South, and near-majorities in many Northern and Western states. At one time, unions had provided a link between many of these voters and the Democratic Party.

Judis and others have finally caught on that yeah, the white working class vote matters:

Southern Democrats Should Just Forget About 2016
In Arkansas and West Virginia, Dems don’t see a comeback without at least an extra two years of distance from Obama. [snip]

Think President Obama hurt Democrats in 2014? It’s not over yet.

While many of the party’s strategists are banking on 2016 as a comeback year, in the South, the party’s congressional contenders can’t envision a rebound before at least 2018.

In fact, Democratic strategists think an extra two years of distance will be the minimum needed to separate their candidates from Obama’s record. That’s especially true in West Virginia and Arkansas, states where the local Democratic brand had stubbornly endured until last year’s Republican sweep.

“The farther he gets off the stage, the better,” said Arkansas Democratic strategist Robert McLarty. [snip]

Republicans will beat up any Democrat that runs by saying they’re a continuation of Obama’s anti-jobs, anti-coal policy,” said one West Virginia Democratic operative who has worked on multiple congressional races in the state. “In 2018, we’d be able to put it back into the D category, but next year will be another tough election.”

The party’s mood is similarly bleak in Arkansas.

“You don’t go from a complete shellacking one cycle to thinking you could take back congressional seats the next,” conceded Michael Cook, an Arkansas Democratic strategist.

This is likely the case even with Hillary Clinton sitting atop the ticket. While many Democrats argue that the former secretary of State and senator from New York could draw back to the party some of the Southern and blue-collar white voters who supported her husband’s presidential run, strategists on both sides acknowledge that the politics of the South have since changed.

“That’s the last hope Democrats in the state are clinging to,” said Conrad Lucas, chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party. “But the West Virginia of 2016 is not the West Virginia of 1992.”

And in Arkansas, more USA Today/Suffolk University poll respondents had negative views about Clinton than positive ones, and others are pessimistic that Clinton could compete in her onetime home state, much less win it.

“The landscape for Democrats in Arkansas does not look promising,” said Skip Rutherford, dean of the Clinton School of Public Service and a veteran of Arkansas politics. “Barring any major developments, it’s going to be a very steep climb.”

It is going to be an impossible climb if Hillary Clinton 2016 is seen in any way as tied to Obama or Obama policies. Half-assed arguments of “stay the course’ but with “changes” will be too cute and will throttle Hillary Clinton 2016. And it gets worse, as John Judis just jived:

The more surprising trend is that Republicans are gaining dramatically among a group that had tilted toward Democrats in 2006 and 2008: Call them middle-class Americans. These are voters who generally work in what economist Stephen Rose has called “the office economy.” In exit polling, they can roughly be identified as those who have college—but not postgraduate—degrees and those whose household incomes are between $50,000 and $100,000. (Obviously, the overlap here is imperfect, but there is a broad congruence between these polling categories.)

The defection of these voters—who, unlike the white working class, are a growing part of the electorate—is genuinely bad news for Democrats, and very good news indeed for Republicans. The question, of course, is whether it is going to continue. It’s tough to say for sure, but I think there is a case to be made that it will.

Yeah, the middle class. So Obama has finished off any chance of a white working class return to the party of FDR and now Obama will make sure that with his plans to target the middle class it will be “good-bye middle class” in 2016. Wanna get tied to this loser in 2016??? Obama started his overtures to the middle class this year with a call for new taxes on college education plans which were so mocked that Obama had to immediately withdraw the tax. What a way to charm the middle class!

Remember all the promises Teixiera and Judis along with other Obama supporters made in 2008 about “demographic destiny” and Obama as the new Messiah that would bestride the political world like a colossus for decades? Uh, that “future” faded fast:

From the 2008 to the 2012 presidential elections, Democrats maintained their core coalition—the Hispanic vote for Obama even went up 4 percentage points in 2012—but their support among both white working-class and middle-class voters began to shrink. After getting 40 percent of the white working-class vote in 2008, Obama got only 36 percent in 2012. And after winning college-but-not-postgrad voters and middle-income voters in 2008, he lost both groups to Mitt Romney, by 51 percent to 47 percent and 52 percent to 46 percent, respectively.

The drop in midterm House races was even more precipitous. Democrats slid from 44 percent of the white working-class vote nationally in 2006 to only 34 percent in 2014, and from a 49-percent-49-percent split among college-educated voters in 2006 to a 54-percent-44-percent loss among these voters in 2014. They also dropped from a 50-percent-48-percent advantage among middle-income voters in 2006 to a 54-percent-44-percent deficit in 2014. [snip]

Overall, Democrats have continued to get a lower percentage of the vote among white working-class voters than among middle-class voters. But during the Obama years, middle-class voters have moved away from the Democrats at a comparable—and, in a few instances, such as the Senate race in Colorado, a higher—rate than white working-class voters.

Obama, as his own henchmen boast is not really a party building type:

But Team Obama has long believed that the president’s support is built upon the bedrock of his personal qualities rather than mere party identification. [snip]

But a senior Democratic strategist familiar with the Obama operation noted that, among the millions of names and emails on the famous lists, there were many people whose primary loyalty was to Barack Obama rather than to the Democratic Party.

We always said it was a cult. The cult of not very well informed young people voted in 2008 and 2012 for Obama in the same way that blacks voted for skin color not character. Obama received meaningless victories personally but the party he headed withered. The party Obama heads will continue to wither. Any fruit on the Obama vine will wither and die. And that is what is happening now and will continue to happen in 2016 for anyone who is seen as in any way an Obama ally or tied to Obama policies:

And while the white working-class vote has steadily shrunk as a percentage of the electorate, middle-class voters—as defined by education and income—have grown. In the 1980 presidential election, the white working class made up about 65 percent of the electorate; by 1988, it was 54 percent; by the 2008 election, it was just 39 percent. Ruy Teixeira and John Halpin estimate that by 2020, it’ll be 30 percent of the electorate. On the other hand, voters with college degrees but not postgraduate degrees went from 26 percent of the electorate in 2004, to 29 percent in 2012, to 31 percent in the last election. And according to census estimates, turnout among middle-class voters is 10 percentage points or more higher than among working-class voters. So middle-class voters are a force to be reckoned with.

The core swing voters within the middle class are whites, who make up 70 to 75 percent of this group; but the voting patterns of minorities in this income bracket don’t necessarily mirror the overall minority vote.

That’s a too cute way of saying that the middle class votes and is growing in votes and that minorities in the middle class vote like whites in the middle class. Judis also notes that young millennial voters will not “mitigate any losses” and save the party of Obama because they too now resemble the “electorate at large—pessimistic, untrusting, lacking confidence in government.”

The middle class writes Judis, is returning to its roots:

TO MAKE AN educated guess about whether these trends will continue, it helps to look at how the white working class and middle class have behaved historically. [snip]

For their part, middle-class voters have long been mistrustful of government. [snip]

Before the Great Depression, middle-class voters had been a stalwart Republican constituency, and they moved back toward the Republican fold after World War II. They supported Reagan in 1980 in the wake of Carter-era stagflation and the tax revolt that began in California in 1978. Reacting to the 1991 recession, a plurality narrowly favored Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996, but they began drifting to the Republicans in 2000 and favored Bush by 58 percent to 42 percent in 2004. In 2008, in the wake of the Iraq War and the Great Recession, they supported Obama; but in 2010—angry about Obama’s stimulus program and believing that the Affordable Care Act had cost too much without truly benefiting them—they once again began returning to the Republican camp.

Middle-class voters tend, on average, to be more socially liberal than white working-class voters, and they have punished Republicans for taking harshly conservative stands on social issues. [snip]

Yet while middle-class voters are generally socially liberal, they oppose candidates on this basis only when those candidates take extreme positions. And so, when Republican politicians have soft-pedaled their views on abortion or guns or immigration, middle-class voters have largely ignored these issues in deciding whom to back—reverting to their natural tendency to focus on topics like taxes, spending, and the size of government. [snip]

Middle-class voters also tend to be less populist than white working-class voters when it comes to blaming Wall Street and the wealthy for the economy’s ills. [snip]

Many of them work for businesses where their own success is bound up with the company’s bottom line. That makes them less susceptible than white working-class voters or professionals to Democratic taunts about the “1 percent.” [snip]

On the whole, the white working class and the middle class—animated by their distrust of government spending and taxes—have moved toward the Republicans in recent years, in the absence of some other issue (such as war or economic catastrophe or social extremism) temporarily taking precedence. And the two groups have done so largely in tandem.

These are chilling numbers for anyone who runs in 2016 perceived in any way to support Obama or Obama policies. Citing his wife and a fellow writer Judis provides anecdotal evidence of why the middle class is aghast at Obama and Obama policies “it appears that the election hinged on taxes and the size of government—the questions to which middle-class voters so often seem to return.”

Um, it gets worse. Judis interviews voters who voted for Obama but who recently voted for um, Republicans, in Maryland:

They are not driven by any racial animus. They are socially liberal, and would probably not vote for a Republican who was openly allied with the Religious Right, but they were willing to support an antiabortion Republican who didn’t make a fuss about the issue. They are not unbendingly opposed to government, like some libertarians or tea-party activists; but they are worried about overspending and taxes.

In a speech after the election, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York advised Democrats to “embrace government” to “get the middle class going again.” But if Democrats take this advice, which has some appeal within policy circles, they could continue to drive middle-class voters like Jerry, Connie, and James away.

Read that Hillary Clinton 2016. Crackpot DailyKook propaganda of “demographic destiny” and generations of Republican losses have been crushed. As labor unions weaken, and the middle class drifts away along with the white working class, Hillary Clinton 2016 has lessons to learn:

The White House understands that Democrats have a problem with white working-class and middle-class voters and is now calling for a “middle-class tax cut” aimed squarely at them. Yet the Democratic nominee in 2016 will still have to shoulder the size-of-government and who-benefits-from-tax-dollars grievances created by Obama’s initial spending programs and by the Affordable Care Act. [snip]

After the 2008 election, I thought Obama could create an enduring Democratic majority by responding aggressively to the Great Recession in the same way that Franklin Roosevelt had responded in 1933 to the Great Depression. Obama, I believed, would finally bury the Reagan Republican majority of 1980 and inaugurate a new period of Democratic domination.

In retrospect, that analogy was clearly flawed.

Our take on Obama and FDR was not flawed. We were correct in our reading. We were correct in our prescriptions. Hillary Clinton 2016 take note of the Mistake in ’08 and don’t repeat them or get tied to them in 2016.

Ebola Obama Corpse – The Autopsy

Update: At the end of our article we note that the GOP has some chips to play in the identity politics game. Others have noticed:



GOP wins with Democratic demographic playbook by ewillies

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams points out a rather interesting irony on the huge Republican win this week. On the more popular races, the Republican Party looked as diverse and fresh as the Democratic Party. Actually, it seemed quite a bit fresher. [snip]

“Jon, Republicans didn’t just take Democrats’ seat,” Jessica Williams said. “They stole their essence. The GOP went from a Brooks Brothers catalog to a United Colors of Benetton ad. [snip]

Jessica Williams then enumerated the list of ironies. “But sorry Democrats,” Williams said. “Utah just elected a young black congresswoman. Conservative Arkansas passed a minimum wage increase. What the f$ck kind of bizarro world is this Jon?” [snip]

This skit is funny. It is worth looking at the deeper message within and what it means for both parties.

Identity politics – the new GOP wildcard? Meanwhile, in the aftermath of Obama Dimocrats’ beheading, Obama golfs like an entitled Enron executive.

——————————————————–

Bathe in gasoline and light a match. Do you really need an autopsy to determine cause of death? Stand in a pile of nuclear waste. Is it difficult to determine cause of death? Lick the juices oozing from an Ebola Obama. You don’t need a medical examiner to tell you what mistake you made.

Obama Dimocrats are about to spend some of their borrowed cash for an autopsy of 2014. We’ll save them that deficit expenditure. We performed the Democratic Party autopsy back in 2008. The autopsy was in our series “Mistake In ’08” (which will likely have a new installment after Veterans’ Day). It’s all there in Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII.

There’s also our series on the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” coalition of death which explains it all. Read it Debbie and save yourself some money: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV.

Vito Corleone did not need an autopsy report to figure out what killed Sonny.



Can’t you figure out what killed Luca?



Do you really need an autopsy for cause of death?

Ebola Obama. No autopsy required but a fake autopsy to shift the blame will do nicely:

DNC chief: We have a problem

The Democratic National Committee is planning a “top-to-bottom assessment” of its campaign strategy after suffering worse-than-expected defeats in last week’s midterm elections.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), who leads the group, announced Saturday that a committee will examine the party’s performance in the 2014 and 2010 elections.

“We are going to look at where we fell short. We’re going to identify our mistakes,” she said in a video that was sent to party supporters.

Our party has a problem,” she added.

The committee will specifically look at messaging, get-out-the-vote efforts and digital operations. It will form in the next few weeks and present a report at the organization’s winter meeting in early 2015. [snip]

“I’m not going to gloss over the facts: On Tuesday, the Republicans had a good night. We didn’t. We worked hard for months, we even won a few tough races, but it wasn’t enough,” she said.

In addition to losing control of the Senate this week, the Democratic party has lost 69 seats since Obama took office.

The problem is Barack Obama. The mistake is the Mistake in ’08. ‘Nuff said.



It will all be Obama excuses and phony explanations to avoid the obvious. The Obama Dimocrat “autopsy” will be a fake. Once again the blame will be shifted to “messaging”. The problem will be identified as “digital”. It’s all a fake. “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” You don’t need an autopsy to know that Ebola Obama kills.



After 2012 the Republican Party held an inquest and autopsy too. The geniuses of the GOP came up with two conclusions. One of those conclusions was smart. One of those conclusions was stupid.

The smart conclusion, or rather the obvious conclusion was that the Republican Party had great need to catch up with the technology of elections. A modern campaign must utilize all modern technology and not go to sleep after an election. They spent money to come up with that brilliant conclusion. Mitt Romney’s ORCA system fell completely apart on election day so yeah, um, the GOP technology did fall short beyond a doubt so they spent money to uncover the obvious.

The stupid conclusion was on comprehensive immigration reform. This is another way for the “leaders” of the party to say “we have to pass amnesty on illegal immigration because that is what our Chamber of Commerce moneybags want to keep wages low”.

Fortunately for the GOP the rank and file as well as some leaders, like Ted Cruz, realized that amnesty was not a solution but a deadly draught. Amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, was not the solution. In 2014 Republicans did much better with Latinos in part because they began to talk honestly about illegal immigration and their legitimate reasons to oppose amnesty.

In Texas Greg Abbott won 40% of the Latino vote. Part of his unique ability to garner Latino support came from the fact his mother-in-law is Latina. But the reason that fact was a benefit was because Abbott made sure the electorate knew he was not a Latino hater even if he opposed illegal immigration amnesty and supported border security.



Identity politics. Yup. Bill Clinton has warned against identity politics:

“I believe that in ways large and small, peaceful and sometimes violent, that the biggest threat to the future of our children and grandchildren is the poison of identity politics that preaches that our differences are far more important than our common humanity.”

We’ve seen the bitter fruit of identity politics in the Barack Obama harvest. But if Obama Dimocrats are gonna play that card, the GOP had to learn to play the game too. And they did in 2014. With Tim Scott, Mia Love, Susanna Martinez, Nikki Haley, Bobby Jindal, Allan West, Brian Sandoval, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, George P. Bush, Columbia Bush, Joni Ernst, and Ben Carson, identity politics can cut both ways especially if Republicans continue to expand their minority gains as well as continue to gain with their already large support base among the white working class. The GOP has a lot of identity politics chips to play with in this scurrilous game.

What will be the biggest lie to come from the Obama Dimocrat autopsy? Willie Brown who thought Obama Dimocrats would win in November 2014 writes the plan for 2016:

Veteran California politician Willie Brown has warned this weekend that presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “is going to lose” in 2016 “[u]nless there are some serious readjustments to the Democratic operation.” [snip]

“Everybody keeps asking me, “Why did this happen?’” Brown wrote. “Beats me. When it came to the elections, I was a dreamer who thought the Democrats were going to retain the Senate. Instead, we got walloped.”

Brown suggested that Democrats erred by running away from President Barack Obama, “which simply played into the Republicans’ strategy of portraying him as a failure.” The party also failed to turn out young voters, he said.

Hillary Rodham Clinton must be wondering whether she really wants to run for president. Unless there are some serious readjustments to the Democratic operation, she is going to lose,” Brown concluded.

Last year, Brown had predicted Clinton would win easily in 2016: “..[A]ll she has to do is continue to breath[e] and in 2016 she’ll be elected to the presidency of the United States,” he said.

In fairness, Brown appears to be saying that Hillary Clinton 2016 will fail unless the apparatus of vote turnout improves. But the suggestion that anyone should get closer to Ebola Obama is malarkey. On every issue he cites as reasons why Obama is popular, the polls state that the public as a whole is opposed to Obama’s policies – which were on the ballot in 2014 – every single one.

Anyone who suggests Hillary Clinton should stick by Ebola Obama is no friend to Hillary Clinton 2016. Hillary should not be a human shield for Barack Obama as so many Barack Obama supporters advocate.

Harry Reid who helped gift Barack Obama the nomination in the great “Mistake in ’08” is angry with Obama and blames Obama for the fact that he will now be a has-been in the Senate. Even bumblin’ Joe Biden has reason to be pissed off at his once savior and that’s not due to too much guzzlin’ liquor. If you think Reid and Biden are grinding their teeth, picture the Obama Dimocrats decimated in state and local elections.

If Hillary Clinton is anywhere near Barack Obama in 2016 we won’t need an autopsy to determine cause of death. Cause of death will be Ebola Obama.

The contagion of Ebola Obama will continue to kill in 2016 as in 2014. The solution is total cremation of Ebola Obama and the Ebola Obama Dimocrats. That’s the path to a healthy future.

ObamaCare Chess: Supreme Court Moves To Checkmate King

It’s political warfare on a Constitutional chessboard. On Friday the Supreme Court announced it would review the King decision. Checkmate.

The Supreme Court did not wait until Monday as it would ordinarily do to crush Barack Obama. Unlike most others, we are not surprised at all. For us, there is no Shock: Supreme Court will decide whether federal consumers are eligible for ObamaCare subsidies.

It is as we have foreseen – on the very day of the Halbig and King decisions:

We wrote about Halbig HERE. It’s a big, big, big, decision which almost surely forces an an Obama appeal to a full panel of the appellate court. Obama will win that fight because he packed the court when Harry Reid ended the Senate filibusters on judges to courts other than the Supreme Court. But then the case will go to the Supreme Court and we’re walking on the sunny side of the street and believe the Supreme Court will ratify today’s three judge panel decision. [snip]

Here’s a complication: There is another case on the same issues in the Fourth Circuit. It is likely the Fourth Circuit appeals court will rule in favor of ObamaCare. The losers in that case will then be able to appeal directly to the Supreme Court if they so choose and force the issue faster than anyone expects but still after the November 2014 elections.

How’s that for bloody good analysis? Almost immediately after we wrote that, the Fourth Circuit did exactly as we predicted. We then wrote an update to take into account the latest decision:

Update II: Well that was quick. Two hours after the Halbig decision the Fourth Circuit issued its decision on ObamaCare. As predicted below, the Fourth Circuit upheld ObamaCare’s subsidy scheme as twisted into existence by Obama. This means a split in appellate court decisions and Supreme Court review.

More importantly, the plaintiffs that lost in the Fourth Circuit now can immediately appeal to the Supreme Court and not bother with an appeal to the full panel of the Fourth Circuit.

Feel free to point out any small diddly thingamajig in which we were wrong ObamaCare supporters. Go ahead. We dare you. We double dare ya!

Our mockery of the Fourth Circuit decision added tickles when ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber’s videotaped statements emerged from a rathold. Gruber made it clear that ObamaCare subsidies were intended only for state exchanges.

Our brilliant, genius, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, analysis hit full flower soon thereafter:

We predicted that Gruber’s comments will be, either through judicial notice or part of the record, introduced by ObamaCare opponents into the judicial record.

We have been proven correct. Plaintiffs in an Oklahoma ObamaCare case have moved to supplement the record with Jonathan Gruber’s helpful comments and history. For our non-regular readers, here is a video hilarity of Gruber’s helpful comments for ObamaCare opponents:



Some would call it genius. We’ll be modest and just blush. Some of what we wrote was mundane:

Our Gruber prediction was not very daring. It was obvious.

But when others clutched their pearls at the swift Fourth Circuit decision on the same day as HalBIG we stayed fixed to the north star and well… we were brilliant in our analysis:

Less obvious at the time to all but us here at Big Pink was the good fortune of that Fourth Circuit pro-ObamaCare decision that came in two hours after the D.C. Circuit cut the guts out of ObamaCare. Our prediction? We predicted that the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs would race to the Supreme Court and skip the en banc stopover. Result? We are right again.

The Fourth Circuit plaintiffs could have asked the full panel of the Fourth Circuit to take up the case and therefore tie themselves down alongside the ObamaCare plaintiffs in the D.C. Circuit where the ObamaCare scam artists ask the full en banc court panel to take up the case. ObamaCare lawyers, it was widely presumed, would appeal their loss in D.C. to the full en banc panel which is packed with Obama appointed judges after Harry Reid destroyed the Senate and its filibuster rules. The likelihood was (although this was before Jonathan Gruber’s comments came to light) that the full D.C. panel would uphold ObamaCare and thereby end the “split” decisions in the circuits making it less likely that the Supreme Court would take up the ObamaCare HalBIG cases.

But we suspected and predicted that the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs would skip the full panel in the Fourth Circuit and instead go directly to the Supreme Court. This they did and we go to the head of the class.

Oh dear, we’re on the verge of being immodest. What will mater and pater say? But damn it to blazes, we were right and so right that old articles we wrote are as daisies fresh sprung from the soil:

On Friday, August 1, pro-ObamaCare lawyers, as predicted by most, filed their appeal for an en banc hearing before the entire D.C. Circuit panel. On July 31, however, the plaintiffs in the Fourth Circuit made their move. The “losers” in the Fourth Circuit beat the D.C. “winners” to the Supreme Court.

The writ to the Supreme Court by the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs cites their new pal “architect” Jonathan Gruber: [snip]

As we predicted the timing was the interesting aspect:

Under the court’s rules, lawyers who lose in an appeals court have 90 days to seek a review in the Supreme Court. And normally, lawyers take the full time. But in this instance, the opponents of the Affordable Care Act want the court’s conservative justices to have a chance to take up the new healthcare case in a few months so they can rule by next spring.

The Obama administration has the opposite strategy on timing. The Justice Department said it planned to ask the full appeals court in the District of Columbia to reconsider last week’s ruling by a three-judge panel. If so, that could delay a final ruling from the appeals court until next year and push off a Supreme Court decision to 2016.

By then, millions of Americans will have relied for several years on having health insurance they could afford thanks to the subsidies. A single adult with an income up to $45,960 and a family of four with an income up $94,200 may obtain insurance on an exchange at a reduced cost.

Did we ever tell you we are great at chess? Since childhood. Great at chess. And ObamaCare is a great chess game. Like Deep Blue we here at Big Pink knew how the chess pieces would move before the players knew what they would do. We wrote it is one giant political chess game on ObamaCare and that was the reason the Supreme Court would checkmate King:

We’ll address the issue of hooking Americans to ObamaCare subsidies as a political strategy below. We’ve already addressed why this line of HalBIG cases can be successful politically for the courts and that the Supreme Court will see that these ObamaCare cases are best settled outside the 2016 (and 2014) election window. Obama of course wants to attack the Supreme Court in an election year just like he so successfully used that timing to his advantage in 2012.

The Writ Of Certiorari filed so quickly, not waiting 90 days, comports with the strategy we have espoused of avoiding as much as possible an election year fight which will fill Chief Justice Roberts with angst. A non-election year ruling right after the November 2014 elections but well before 2016 is just what Roberts needs to calm his nerves.

It’s all come to pass. The Supreme Court waited to read the election returns. Now the Supreme Court will move against ObamaCare before the 2016 election and safely after the 2014 elections. ObamaCare has been hit by an electoral truck and is off to the Sarah Palin death panel.

If you doubt ObamaCare is about to die read the analysis of the Greg Sargent analysis. It’s a hoot. Obama high-priest and ObamaCare scorched earth defender Sargent unwittingly wrote the Supreme Court decision against ObamaCare even as he thought he wrote a brilliant defense for ObamaCare! Hilarius. Sargent and Gruber will eventually be seen as the ObamaCare supporters that buried ObamaCare.

ObamaCare supporter Timothy Jost is soiling his briefs with accusations that the Supreme Court is making political, not legal judgements. But the ones playing bad political chess are Harry Reid and Barack Obama with their court packing maneuvers. Chief Justice John Roberts will have to negate the Reid/Obama court packing schemes if he wants to preserve the integrity of the Judicial Branch.

The pearl clutching dummies will see a Supreme Court checkmate of ObamaCare as great for Barack Obama because it will give him an issue on which to fight. But that is a non starter. ObamaCare is hated just about everywhere. If anything a Supreme Court checkmate which destroys ObamaCare will strengthen the newborn Republican congress. Obama will have to crawl to Republicans for help to rescue his “legacy” disaster. Republicans will prove to not be in a giving vein.

ObamaCare, Ebola, they are all dancers in the Masque of the Red Death hosted by Ebola Obama.

Ebola Obama, this wretched creature who believes he is a black king is about to be checkmated by the Supreme Court. The knights, bishops, rooks, Queen, pawns, and the opposing White King will do Obama in. The name of the White King in this game of chess?

The White King is called the Constitution.

#ReadyForHillary ??? Wake Up Hillary!!! – They’re In Your Head And Want You To Be A Human Shield For Obama

We recently asked “Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?” The answer at this moment in time, before the big meeting on November 21st in New York City, has to sadly be: BOTH. If you are angry at us for this answer read the evidence we provide below and honestly ask yourself the same question and you will come to the very same answer.

In “Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?” we denounced the stupidity of Hillary Clinton campaigning for any Obama Dimocrat in 2014. The results came in on Tuesday and aside from incoherent blatherings about how “Hillary won” the evidence is clear that Hillary should have stayed home with her mouth tightly shut.

The “Hillary won” crowd says Hillary got “chits” from campaigning. Replace the “c” with an “s” and that is what Hillary got. Hillary should have sat back, shut up, and have the party come crawling to her. She doesn’t need no damned dirty chits. Begala: Democrats have no one but Hillary for 2016.

Look at what another ostensible Hillary supporter provides as a strategy for Barack Obama in the next two years and if you can still defend Hillary Clinton’s intelligence you are far too too generous:

“We’ll never see 51 percent again, maybe not even 50,” predicted one of his former campaign aides.

If there’s a ray of hope—and this is the paradox of a late-stage 21st-century presidency—it’s that people will start ignoring him.

Veteran Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg says Obama’s secret weapon just might turn out to be Hillary Clinton—who could divert attention from the White House and allow him to attack multiple crises without the klieg-light scrutiny he has faced in the past. “Once Hillary becomes more important than Obama, the attention shifts,” says Greenberg, who helped advise Clinton’s husband. That’s a good thing, Greenberg argues, because Obama and his team have been so lousy about messaging what he believes to be a fundamentally competent and accomplished presidency. “I think there might be a shift to the job he’s doing versus what he’s saying about the job he’s doing. … That’s important because he’s demonstrably failed on communicating about his economic plans and on his health care reforms and on his environmental record—everything really,” Greenberg says. Scathingly, he concludes: “No one knows about any of it. … There is no part of that he has been successful at.”

Hillary as human shield for the boob Barack. Lovely. Hillary listens to this guy??? Stupid!!!! Still think we’re wrong?

Hillary Clinton wasted 2014 in campaigns for people like Bruce Braley. Braley in 2008 begged Hillary to raise money for him. Hillary raised money for Braley. Braley then endorsed John Edwards. Braley in 2014 asked Hillary to campaign for him. Hillary campaigned for him. Hillary now has the first woman elected statewide in Iowa who will be fully justified when she attacks Hillary.

Why will Joni Ernst be fully justified in attacking Hillary Clinton? Look at what Hillary Clinton said as she campaigned for John Edwards endorser Bruce Braley:

“I would also add, it’s not enough to be a woman. You have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for all women,” Hillary Clinton said at a Wednesday campaign event for Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Bruce Braley, Joni Ernst’s opponent in Iowa.

The “eighteen million cracks in the ceiling” battle cry ends with a crackpot remark on behalf of a John Edwards supporter. We guess the courageous Beijing speech on behalf of womens’ rights was only for certain women. The rights of women ends at the thin blue line? Women who dissent on “progressive” issues need not apply? Women who think third trimester abortions are a problem have to go not in the back of the bus but under the bus? Is this a way to inaugurate a smart campaign for the first woman president? And all this on behalf of a man who stabbed Hillary in the back to endorse that paragon of virtue John Edwards??? Is any of this smart???



And when I heard that, I heard people in the middle getting permission from Hillary Clinton to reject her based on gender alone. In other words, you don’t need to vote for me just because I’m a woman.

If Hillary Clinton decides to run in 2016, after the November 21st meeting, expect to see the video of those stupid remarks played repeatedly every time Hillary or any Hillary supporters mentions that it is time for a woman in the White House. There will be no “context” provided for the remarks because the video will send the message Hillary opponents need. And this on behalf of a John Edwards supporter who fuc*ed her over in 2008.

That’s the “good” news focused on Hillary’s Losers. Now comes the really bad stuff. Hillary Clinton is being sabotaged by Barack Obama supporters and she is apparently too stupid, thus far, to realize it. Think that’s harsh? Read on.


Jut Jaw

For their election issue Politico Magazine featured on the cover an article by Hillary Hater Extraordinaire Maggie Haberman. That article is the latest marriage of Big Media Hillary Haters with Barack Obama Cult leaders. It was a stunning bit of writing because it was packed full with historical revisions and sought to force Hillary Clinton to become a human shield for Barack Obama. We hope that Hillary Clinton wakes up from her stupor when she reads that article as well as the one we write here today.

To fully appreciate the viciousness of Haberman’s article you must compare the picture we use of Hillary Clinton stared down upon by a jut jawed nasty Barack Obama, with the picture chosen by Politco. Take a good long look at the picture in the Politico hit piece. The picture Politico uses is of a haggard, worn out, mean looking Hillary Clinton looking at Barack Obama with evil intent. That picture tells you everything you need to know about the Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman’s article.

The picture tells you all you need to know. The people quoted in the article is the next clue you need to understand that Big Media Politico and Barack Obama Hillary Haters have joined to force Hillary Clinton to be Barack Obama’s human shield.

Lastly, before you read the article, recall what happened in 2008. In 2008 Big Media defended Barack Obama for every lie and nasty remark he made. Big Media swooned every time Barack Obama yapped some banality or stupidity. Big Media protected Barack Obama and attacked anyone who dared admonish Barack Obama in any way.

In 2008 Big Media did not just protect and swoon over Barack Obama. Big Media actively attacked Hillary Clinton (later John McCain, but not as much as Hillary). Anything Hillary Clinton said in 2008 was attacked. Any literature Hillary Clinton 2008 produced was analyzed and mocked. Any Hillary Clinton 2008 supporter was denounced as possibly racist or an outright racist.

That is what happened in 2008. Big Media did everything to protect Barack Obama and destroy Hillary Clinton. That is what happened. There was no brilliant Barack Obama campaign.

In 2008 at every debate Hillary Clinton had to fight not only Barack Obama but the Big Media “moderators”
as well. In every state Hillary Clinton had as opponents the Barack Obama campaign and their Big Media surrogates. That is what happened.

Politico in it’s Maggie Haberman Hillary Hate article wants to convince you and Hillary Clinton of revisionist lies and advocates for Hillary Clinton to continue to be stupid and be an Obama human shield:

One afternoon in late September, David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager and most trusted political aide, slipped into Hillary Clinton’s stately red-brick home on Whitehaven Street in Washington, D.C., to lay out his vision for her 2016 presidential campaign. The Clintons have always made a habit of courting their most talented tormenters, so it wasn’t surprising that she would call on the man who masterminded her 2008 defeat as she finds herself besieged by Republicans replaying Plouffe’s greatest hits.

Over the next couple of hours, Plouffe told Clinton and two of her closest advisers—longtime aide Cheryl Mills and John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and now Obama’s White House counselor—what she needed to do to avoid another surprise upset. His advice, according to two people with knowledge of the session, looked a lot like Obama’s winning strategy in 2012: First, prioritize the use of real-time analytics, integrating data into every facet of her operation in a way Clinton’s clumsy, old-school campaign had failed to do in 2008. Second, clearly define a rationale for her candidacy that goes beyond the mere facts of her celebrity and presumed electability, rooting her campaign in a larger Democratic mission of economic equality. Third, settle on one, and only one, core messaging strategy and stick with it, to avoid the tactical, news cycle-driven approach that Plouffe had exploited so skillfully against her in the 2008 primaries.

In Plouffe’s view, articulated in the intervening years, Clinton had been too defensive, too reactive, too aware of her own weaknesses, too undisciplined in 2008. His team would goad her into making mistakes, knowing that run-of-the-mill campaign attacks (like Obama’s claim she merely had “tea,” not serious conversation, with world leaders as first lady) would get under her skin and spur a self-destructive overreaction (Clinton responded to the tea quip by falsely portraying a 1990s goodwill trip to Bosnia with the comedian Sinbad as a dangerous wartime mission). She was too easily flustered.

Plouffe’s last and most pressing point was about timing. A couple of weeks earlier, Clinton had told an audience in Mexico City, “I am going to be making a decision … probably after the first of the year, about whether I’m going to run again or not.” The comment alarmed top Democrats: The Republican attack machine was already revving up, running anti-Hillary focus groups to figure out her vulnerabilities, dispatching opposition researchers to Arkansas, churning out anti-Hillary books and creating Fox News-fodder talking points to cast her State Department tenure as a failure and her campaign-to-be as a third-term extension of Obama’s increasingly unpopular presidency.

Now Plouffe, with the politesse of a man accustomed to padding around a president, implored her to start assembling a campaign as soon as possible and to dispense with the coy fiction that she’s not running in 2016. “Why not?” he asked. “They are already going after you.”

[snip]

Can she do it? After months of anodyne sit-downs promoting her book, Clinton finally seems to be heeding some of Plouffe’s advice, using her appearances for candidates late in the 2014 midterms as a dry run for her own 2016 message, a mix of the new Democratic populism, feminism—and old-fashioned Republican-bashing.

They, Obama’s top henchmen, are in Hillary’s head. In 2008 Obama’s thugs and Big Media allied to stop Hillary and they’re at it again. Hillary Clinton is now taking advice from her enemies. Hillary Clinton should reject those whose only interest is that Hillary Clinton be a Palestine style human shield for Barack Obama.

The rest of the Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman article is a reiteration of all the stupid attacks against Hillary Clinton. This is all an attempt to hide the only attack that will destroy Hillary Clinton 2016: tie Hillary to Barack Obama.

The only attack that will destroy Hillary Clinton 2016 is one that ties Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama. 2008 was not a failure of “analytics” it was a story of Big Media protection of Barack Obama and hatred of Hillary Clinton. Now, make Hillary Clinton even smell like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton 2016 is doomed.

But the attempt to tie Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama is not only an attack by Republicans/conservatives. It is Barack Obama and Barack Obama cultists who most want to tie Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama and use Hillary as a human shield to protect Barack Obama.

Shortly after Tuesday’s elections Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman tried again:

Even before networks officially declared a Republican majority in the Senate, Democrats were openly saying they hope Clinton will declare for 2016 soon after Election Day.

That sentiment is about to become overwhelming, as the party tries to recover from an election night hangover that’s worse than most operatives on either side had anticipated. The evening, almost entirely devoid of bright spots for Democrats, was a shellacking for President Barack Obama. It will only accelerate the party’s look ahead to its next leader, especially among donors, who want someone to rally around.

Clinton has spent two years as the prohibitive Democratic front-runner in the polls despite keeping politics largely at arm’s length until the end of the midterms. Some of her advisers have suggested opening an exploratory committee this year to allow her to raise money sooner, while others are adamant that she should wait until next year.

The advisers Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman cites who want Hillary Clinton to declare right after November 21st’s meeting are all Obama henchmen. These Obama cultists wanted and to a large extent got Hillary to immolate herself in 2014. Now these Obama cultists want Hillary to take on some of the Obama stink on the elections. These Obama cultists want Hillary to fight the Republican congress for two years and be a human shield for Barack Obama.

More from Hillary Hater Haberman:

Some Democrats said Tuesday night that Clinton will want to wait a bit to let the 2014 midterms pass, and to get some distance between herself and a bloodbath for her party. She also genuinely doesn’t seem ready to flip a switch on a campaign: A number of decisions still remain about staffing and, more importantly, messaging.

But others believe Clinton can’t afford to be coy about her intentions beyond the next few weeks, and forming an exploratory committee without an official announcement will not satisfy some donors and activists.

She can run against Washington more easily now

Clinton’s major problem was always going to be running as the candidate of the two-term party in power. Separating from Obama poses major risks for a Democrat who had trouble with portions of the base in 2008 and who served in the administration for four years.

The fact that Tuesday’s election that was seen largely as a statement against Obama may give Clinton some wiggle room with her own base to create distance from him. But a newly minted Republican Senate helps her to solve the problem of how to run against Washington. [snip]

A GOP-held Senate gives her a clear point of contrast to run against.

That’s what the Obama cultists want: Hillary Clinton to fight the Republican congress and be a human shield for Barack Obama. Hillary should stink herself up and help Obama and Obama supporter Reid??? Let’s bring up that bit from up top in our article “Hillary Clinton— who could divert attention from the White House and allow him to attack multiple crises without the klieg-light scrutiny. Be a human shield for Barack Obama Hillary and you become irredeemably stupid.

Al Gore was irredeemably stupid when he ran away from Bill Clinton in 2000. In 2000 Bill Clinton was a popular president with a strong economy and many achievements. Al Gore was stupid. But Barack Obama ain’t Bill. Barack Obama is hated and is better known as Ebola Obama with an Ebola Obama Economy. Josh kraushaar made a good case as to why the Obama thugs were wrong when they wanted to tie Obama Dimocrats to Obama:

White House in Denial: President Obama Is Costing Democrats Control of the Senate

The administration insists that vulnerable Democrats should have supported him more. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

No one should tie themselves to Ebola Obama. Hillary and Hillary Clinton 2016 must run away from Ebola Obama.

So what is going on and what does Hillary need to wake up to? (1) Obama henchmen want Hillary to be Barack Obama’s human shield. While Obama golfs Hillary will be under attack by Republicans who will be aided by Obama thugs who will feed Republicans and Big Media information with which to attack Hillary. (2) Some Hillary supporters in the political consulting class want the money flow to start to drip into their pockets. (3) Big Media wants the money to flow into their advertisement coffers too as well as protect Barack Obama with Hillary as the human shield and target.

There are some Hillary supporters, like us, who try to shake Hillary awake from her stupor. We’re not alone:

Clinton Allies Resist Calls to Jump Early Into 2016 Race

Veteran Hillary Clinton advisers say she shouldn’t accelerate her early 2015 timetable for announcing whether she’ll run for president, despite calls from prominent backers of President Barack Obama for her to enter the race soon after Tuesday’s congressional elections.

In interviews and e-mail exchanges, six political operatives closely aligned with Clinton offered up overlapping lists of reasons why they don’t expect her to jump in this year. [snip]

“Can’t we get through the holidays first?” asked Paul Begala, the strategist who helped Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992 and is a consultant for the Clinton-backing super-PAC Priorities USA. “Do we really need to deny her her first Christmas with her first granddaughter? Really?”

Such is the desperation amongst real Hillary Clinton supporters that we are forced to try to wake up Hillary Clinton with rancid appeals to grandmotherhood. But Obama thugs are in Hillary’s head and everything must be done to wake Hillary up from stupid:

The mostly behind-the-scenes fight revolves around the question of what’s best for the party now and for trying to keep the White House in 2016. But it breaks down mostly along an old fault line: Clinton versus Obama.

In September, David Plouffe, the architect of Barack Obama’s 2008 primary victory over Clinton, advised her in a private session that she should make her run official sooner rather than later, and mega-donor Steve Mostyn said “if Hillary is going to run, it would be best to do it quickly post-election,” according to recent reports in Politico. The New York Times also reported last month that Clinton is getting pressure to rally the party right after the midterms by jumping into the presidential race.

Mostyn and his wife Amber gave $3 million to the super-PAC Priorities USA to help re-elect Obama in 2012, and they were backers of John Edwards in 2008 before Steve Mostyn began donating to Obama that year. They are now max-out donors — the super-PAC limits contributions to $25,000 — for the super-PAC Ready for Hillary, which has solicited support from contributors previously associated with Obama, as well as longtime Clinton contributors.

Fancy that, Obama contributors want Hillary to make herself a target and become Obama’s human shield. To that end Plouffe sticks in the knife with the “trust” issue:

The campaign he ran against her in 2008 operated on the premise that voters didn’t trust her, a view that could persist if Clinton is perceived to be pretending not to run while she appears to be doing just that.

Brian Wolff, a former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee who is a longtime supporter of both Clintons, said the former Secretary of State would do well to keep her own counsel, rather than listen to what Obama’s strategists want.

“Those people advised him well in winning the presidency, but clearly haven’t been consistent on advising him well since,” Wolff said of Plouffe and other Obama strategists. “Hillary doesn’t need their advice. She’s got a great team around her.

Plouffe didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Hooray for Brian Woolff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, by the way, Plouffe was up to his tricks today in the New York Times:

“We shouldn’t just assume that the Obama voters will automatically come out for Democratic presidential candidates,” cautioned David Plouffe, Mr. Obama’s former campaign manager.

Why are we writing this? Why did we write Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?? Why did we write The Hillary Clinton 2016 Muddled Message Mess? It’s because of this:

The juxtaposition of Clinton’s plans with those who want her to announce sooner rather than later will be in sharp relief in Manhattan on November 21.

Ready for Hillary is convening a donor conference that day at the Sheraton Times Square, where the Clinton Global Initiative holds its annual summits. [snip]

One Democratic strategist with ties to the Clintons said she should let the situation settle down after the midterms rather than associating herself with losses that will otherwise be blamed on Obama. [snip]

If she can stand back as Republicans begin jockeying for 2016, she’ll benefit, this adviser said, adding that the challenge for Clinton will be to energize her support base without getting overexposed in 2015.

That has been a danger of her recent barnstorming for Democratic candidates, which, along with a bumpy book tour this summer, has hampered her national approval ratings.

“She has been on the stump, which is going to knock down the apolitical luster she gained as Secretary of State and drag her poll numbers back to Earth,” Begala said. “I suspect she thinks that’s worth it to help all those good Democrats.”

We’ll end with this bit of wisdom to shake Hillary Clinton awake from her stupors and to shake away those Obama thugs who are in her head:

Another adviser, who worked with Clinton at State, said he thinks she’ll wait as long as possible before making an announcement, provided that she plans to run. Those who are advising her otherwise, he said, are pursuing their own agendas.

Now, that is smart.

Wake up Hillary, you have nothing to lose but your oppressors.

#Election2014 Aftermath: Please Republicans… Do This One Thing….

The Obaminations are legion. They have to be fought immediately. We know that. We know that ObamaCare, illegal immigration amnesty, the Obama scandals, IRS targeting of citizens… these are all important issues Republicans must tackle as soon as possible.

But there is an issue of such paramount importance that it must go to the forefront in the battle against treacherous Barack Obama. This issue has the added benefit that it can be successfully fought and won because so many Obama Dimocrats will likely join with Republicans to fight Obama.

The issue that cannot wait and must be at the forefront of the Republican battle against Obama is a nuclear Iran:

In audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security adviser to President Obama, said an Iran deal would be the Obamacare of the second term.

The Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes spoke with Fox News about the implications of the Rhodes’ comments.

“It definitely gives you a sense of just how important the administration sees a deal with Iran.” Hayes said. “I mean, remember what the administration did to pass health care. They twisted arms, they gave favors. The president wasn’t going to take anything less than full, comprehensive health care reform.”

Rhodes touched on the developing strategy to accomplish such a deal by going behind Congress’s back: “We’re already kind of picking through how do we structure a deal so we don’t have to require legislative action. And there are ways to do that.”

This strong-arm strategy is already in play.

Coupled with Jeffrey Goldberg’s piece on the shattered U.S.-Israeli relationship, it is clear the Obama administration pressured Benjamin Netanyahu against launching preemptive airstrikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.

The Republican soon-to-be-majority in the U.S. Senate along with their fortified army in the House of Representatives must make it their top priority to defeat this Barack Obama fifth column move to assure that Iran acquire nuclear weapons.



Republicans in the House and Senate should move to defund any and all activities in the State Department, White House, Pentagon, in any and all agencies that plot to negotiate with Iran in any way without notification to the American Congress and approval by the Congress.

Barack Obama would threaten to veto, then veto, any such law passed by Congress. But we believe that even prominent Obama Dimocrats such as Senator Charles Schumer and Senator Robert Menendez would bolster Republicans and vote to override an Obama veto. Robert Menendez seeks to stop the threat to American security of a nuclear Iran:

WASHINGTON, DC. – U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), joined by 25 U.S. Senators, introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, bipartisan legislation proposing prospective sanctions on Iran should the regime violate the interim Joint Plan of Action agreed to in Geneva or should Iran fail to reach a final agreement.

The legislation was co-sponsored by twenty-six senators, including: Senators Menendez, Kirk, Schumer, Graham, Cardin, McCain, Casey, Rubio, Coons, Cornyn, Blumenthal, Ayotte, Begich, Corker, Pryor, Collins, Landrieu, Moran, Gillibrand, Roberts, Warner, Johanns, Hagan, Cruz, Donnelly, Blunt and Booker.

The prospective sanctions legislation requires further reductions in purchases of Iranian petroleum and applies additional penalties to strategic elements of the Iranian economy, to include the engineering, mining and construction sectors.

The Menendez legislation was proposed before the treacherous audio recording of Obama henchman Benjamin Rhodes was uncovered. By now any friend of Israel must understand that the greatest threat to Israel and American interests is Barack Obama:

“Bottom line is, this is the best opportunity we’ve had to resolve the Iranian issue diplomatically, certainly since President Obama came to office, and probably since the beginning of the Iraq war,” Rhodes said. “So no small opportunity, it’s a big deal. This is probably the biggest thing President Obama will do in his second term on foreign policy. This is healthcare for us, just to put it in context.” [snip]

Rhodes also said the White House wants to avoid congressional scrutiny of any deal.

“We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away,” Rhodes said. “And there are ways to do that.”

That is similar to what an unnamed senior administration official told David Sanger of the New York Times last week for a piece headlined “Obama Sees an Iran Deal That Could Avoid Congress”: “We wouldn’t seek congressional legislation in any comprehensive agreement for years.”

White House spokesman Eric Schultz denied the Times story. But it is not as though the Obama White House has fallen out of love with executive action.

The interim deal with Iran struck in November 2013, in which the administration traded sanctions relief worth billions of dollars for promises to limit nuclear fuel production, was extended in July and is now scheduled to lapse on November 24. [snip]

Fear that the chances of some sort of dangerous and misguided détente with Iran are high, and that they increase if Republicans capture the Senate and improve their majority in the House. Fear that the worse things get for Obama at home, the better the odds that he will hand the keys of the Middle East to Ayatollah Khamenei.

Fear that Obama sees an Iran deal not just as health care reform for the second term, but as his version of George W. Bush’s surge: a Hail Mary pass thrown in the fourth quarter in a long-shot attempt to salvage a legacy.

Iran is Obama’s Iraq. It occupies the same place in the thinking of his administration that Iraq held in his predecessor’s. The desire for détente with Iran, for comity and diplomatic accord between longtime enemies, for a new Middle East in which security is left to regional stakeholders, and Shiite and Sunni alike see the United States as “evenhanded” in its treatment of Israelis and Palestinians, holds immense sway over the alliance of progressives and realists that conduct American foreign policy. It has for a decade.

“The support group should actively engage Iran and Syria in its diplomatic dialogue, without preconditions,” stated the report of the 2006 Iraq Study Group, authored in part by Ben Rhodes. [snip]

Can’t you just see Obama and Jarrett, kicking back after a few glasses of Bordeaux at Restaurant Helen, rhapsodizing over the president’s unique perspective on the global south, quoting lines from Argo, visualizing the day he makes the first presidential visit to Tehran since Carter? For six years the White House has been careful not to provide the Iranians with any reason to reject negotiations, to prevent his fantasy from becoming real. To the contrary: It has been solicitous of Iran and Syria, in a demonstration of its willingness to address their grievances. [snip]

These decisions are not made in light of the national security interests of the United States. They are made to keep alive President Obama’s dream of peace with Iran. And the purpose of these decisions isn’t to mollify American politicians. It’s to satisfy Iranian ones.

A nuclear Iran is an existential threat to Israel and the United States.

A nuclear Iran could not only instigate an Holocaust which would erase Israel, a nuclear Iran would blackmail the entire Middle East and choke vital resources from the West. That is why the issue of a nuclear Iran should be the linchpin in a Republican strategy against Barack Obama.

Once Obama’s back is broken on the nuclear Iran issue, more and more Obama Dimocrats will leave his grasp and vote to override more vetoes. A well developed strategy by Republican friends of Israel could bring together two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate to oppose Obama.

This must be done and it must be done before November 24 or as soon as Republicans ascend to leadership in the new Congress.

According to the NYT: Obama doesn’t feel “repudiated” by crushing defeat of his party. Barack Obama must be educated that indeed he has been “repudiated” and is now an object of scorn an ridicule (as an astounding article of Obama Dimocrats mocking Obama proves). Breaking his hands on foreign policy and particularly on negotiations with Iran is the best and most necessary way to school him.

On Tuesday night Barack Obama was repudiated by the American people. Victories for Republicans came in some of the most unlikely places. On Tuesday night Obama was ‘deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters’. Still Obama does not feel “repudiated”.

On Tuesday night every single one of Barack Obama’s policies went down to defeat.



Every single one.

It’s over.



We hope for change. The place for Republicans to start, the first place to bring needed change is Iran policy. From there more majorities can be crafted to override Obama vetoes.

Barack Obama has been repudiated by the American people. Now the American congress must forcefully teach Barack Obama that he will not be allowed to destroy America. Or Israel.

WAVE Bye-Bye Obama – America Bitch-Slaps Ebola Obama

Our election day and election night analysis has thus far been on target. Our comments section has been so on target with analysis of results too.

The night has been full of bitch slaps of Ebola Obama. Mitch McConnell won with double digits (his victory might usher in a right to work law in Kentucky). Scott Walker has beaten back all odds and once again won his election as he prepares for Walker 2016. In both these states Big Labor has taken a bloody beating.

In the House of Representatives Republicans have double digit wins.

There will be a runoff race in Louisiana but the eventual winner there will be the Republican (with 51% of the vote in, the Gooper is ahead of race-baiter Mary Landrieu). So add one more to the GOP win column.

The surprise of the night has been Virginia. With 96% of the vote in the race is almost tied. Most expected a double digit win for Obama Dimocrat Mark Warner. However this one turns out, Gillespie’s issue campaign bloodied Obama Dimocrat Warner badly.

As of 10:30 p.m. ET Republicans have flipped 5 senate seats and thus far lost none of their incumbents. Georgia appears to be a clear win for the Republican in the manner of Kentucky. No runoff will be required. Even in Kansas with 32% of the vote in Republican Roberts is over 50% in a three man race. [Just as we prepare to publish Fox News projects Republican Roberts has indeed won.]

Tonight reminds us of Obama thug Robert Gibbs’ appearance on Meet the Press on March 16, 2014.

Gibbs Warns Obama: If You Lose The Senate, “The Party’s Over”

ROBERT GIBBS: If [President Obama] doesn’t get, as I said, more involved in raising money, in getting voters excited, we know as you said that Obamacare is going to bring Republicans out. What issues can the president try to put on the table to get Democrats excited? If he doesn’t get more involved in raising money and making this a choice as Dan Pfeiffer said, you lose the Senate and if you lose the Senate, turn out the lights because the party’s over.



Here at Big Pink, the party is just beginning. But for bitch slapped Ebola Obama, turn out the lights, the party’s over.

Election Day: Obama Policies On The Ballot – Every Single One

Every Obama policy is on the ballot today. Every single Obama policy is on the ballot today. Barack Obama campaigned on the premise that all his policies are on the ballot today. Every Republican campaigned against Obama’s policies. The choice is very clear today.

Today America will either reject Barack Obama and his policies or endorse Barack Obama and his policies.

It’s going to be an update kind of day. As election returns begin to come in we will update even more frequently.

Unlike the conventional wisdom we think the night’s results will be quickly determined. The first series of states to close polls will tell us a great deal. If, for instance, Republicans win in East Coast states that they were supposed to lose because they were behind in the polls, then it’s going to be a good night for Republicans. If the Obama Dimocrats win in places they should lose then it will be a good day for corruption and flim-flams.

If the first series of returns are tight then expect a long night that might not be resolved until the last drug store has sold it’s last pill – in other words: Alaska.

But we think the races will come in fast and, um, furious.

At 6:00 p.m. on the East Coast some Kentucky and Indiana polls will close. If McConnell wins, as we expect, then the night’s results will likely track with our expectations. If Grimes wins it will be a grim night as Lucy once again grabs the football away from Republicans. Look to Jefferson County for clues. Grimes should win big there (minimum 60%). If she doesn’t win big there she won’t win anywhere Ditto Fayette County.

As we have written before, a loss for Obama Dimocrats in the state legislature will also mean Kentucky will become the 25th state to be a right-to-work state. Big Labor might hit the tipping point to death tonight in Kentucky.

At 7:00 p.m. ET all polls close in Indiana and Kentucky. Also parts of Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Vermont, and Virginia close. Jackpot!

Florida voters lose no matter the governor they choose. A Republican victory there will be a straw in the wind that might or might not indicate something – most likely a good night for Republicans elsewhere. A big Republican win would be a strong indicator that it is going to be a good night for Republicans. For Obama Dimocrats to win Crist better win solidly (60% plus) in Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, and Pinellas counties.

Also in Florida the race results for Obama Dimocrat Joe Garcia in the 26th CD will bear watching. Ditto Patrick Murphy in the 18th CD.

In Georgia Obama Dimocrat dynasties are on the line. Jimmy Carter’s grandson running for Governor and Sam Nunn’s daughter running for U.S. Senate (in an election which requires 50% + 1 to win and not require a runoff election in January) will likely lose (either tonight or in the runoff). Outright Republican wins here tonight will be strong clues of a big night for them elsewhere look to Gwinnett County for a necessary big win for Nunn if she is to win). The 12th CD results (a D seat) will also provide entrails to read on nationwide results.

New Hampshire will mostly close at 7. Obama Dimocrat Jeanne Shaheen should win if the polls are correct. But if Brown wins (we think he has an excellent chance to do so) then it is all over for Obama and his policies which are on the ballot tonight.

Also in New Hampshire watch the 1st CD. Obama Dimocrat Carol Shea-Porter should lose to Frank Guinta. In the 2nd CD a defeat for Anne Kuster by Marilinda Garcia would be a bell ringer tolling defeat for Obama Dimocrats nationwide. Same holds true in the governor’s race. If Obama Dimocrat Hassan unexpectedly loses (or performs weakly) to Havenstein, bolt the door Louise.

In South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley should win. If the man who called her a “whore” wins then Obama Dimocrats will have a good whoring night.

In Virginia, Obama Dimocrat Mark Warner should easily win against Ed Gillespie. If victory comes with a slim margin that would be an ominous indication for Obama Dimocrats nationwide. If Ed Gillespie impossibly wins – it means Obama Dimocrats can forget about bolting the door because the door will be ablaze and nationwide massive defeats are on the way. Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William counties in the north will be the last to report and decisive. The swing 10th CD will provide weak clues to nationwide results if the GOP (Foust) loses here (to Comstock).

At 7:30 p.m. ET North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia polls close. Obama Dimocrat Kay Hagen better win here or Republicans will have a massive wave to surf on. So much is at stake here, so many future plans on the line, that a defeat here will have national implications for years to come. Wake County better come in big (55-69%) for Hagen.

In Ohio Governor John Kasich will win an “epic victory”. Expect Republican sweeps throughout the state. As goes Ohio so goes the nation.

West Virginia is an easy win for the GOP. Anything less means trouble. In the 3rd CD Obama Dimocrat Nick Rahall should lose. The 2nd CD should also, despite Obama Dimocrat efforts, stay GOP. Any surprises here and Lucy takes the football.

At 8:00 p.m. ET Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, the rest of Florida, Illinois, the CT zones of Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, the ET zones of Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, all of New Hampshire, New Jersey, the CT zones of North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, the CT zones of South Dakota, Tennessee, the CT zones of Texas, and D.C. close.

The races we’ll watch are the weird race for governor in Connecticut. Obama Dimocrat Governor Malloy might lose to gooper Tom Foley. It’s a deep blue state so it means something. GOP victories in the Obama Dimocrat 4th and 5th CDs will also mean trouble for Obama Dimocrats nationwide.

Obama’s deep blue state of Illinois might get a GOP governor (Bruce Rauner) to replace Obama Dimocrat Pat Quinn, which will bedevil Barack. CDs to watch are the Obama Dimocrat 10th and 12th (which should go GOP) as well as the 11th and 17th – any victories here and Republicans have the football, not Lucy.

The big question mark this election season is Kansas. Governor Brownback is in trouble as is Senator Roberts. If both win it’s great news for the GOP. If Roberts loses then the GOP will need, not just want, wins in some of the blue states like New Hampshire, Iowa, or Colorado. If Roberts wins any victories in these states is gravy on the potatoes, cherries on the sundae.

A GOP victory in the governor’s race in Maine will indicate the north east firewalls are breached. It could indicate the 2nd CD which Obama Dimocrats should win could also go to the goopers.

That anyone is even talking about Maryland is a sign of the carnage caused by Ebola Obama. Obama Dimocrat Anthony Brown better win or Obama will cry.

That anyone is even talking about Massachusetts has Chappaquiddick Chauffeur Ted Kennedy drinking in his grave. Republican Charlie Baker might win here and the Obama Dimocrat firewalls will be on fire. Look to the 6th CD and the 9th CD for more Obama Dimocrat disasters.

In Michigan the goopers might keep the governor’s mansion, or not. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land once had a chance of winning here but that chance has largely evaporated. If Land even comes close to shore it will be good news for the GOP. If she wins… we run out of analogies, superlatives, and metaphors.

In New Jersey Cory Booker’s margins will provide some data as to the GOP tide or wave. Republicans should win the 3rd CD away from Obama Dimocrats if their ship comes in.

In Pennsylvania the Obama Dimocrat Tom Wolf should easily beat the Republican governor Tom Corbett. If the race is tight or Corbett holds on then nothing is safe for Obama Dimocrats. Watch the 6th and 8th CDs for any signs of unexpected down ballot help by a Tom Wolf victory.

In Rhode Island the GOP has a teeny-tiny chance of victory in the governor’s race. If that chance grows into three cherries on the slots, then it is a wave for the goopers.

South Dakota should be an easy victory for the GOP. If anything unexpected to happen to help Obama Dimocrats is to happen – expect it here.

In Texas it’s GOP heaven. Anything else will mean trouble for Team Red.

Arkansas should be a GOP win for Tom Cotton over Mark Pryor. If not…. We’ll also look to see what happens in the 2nd CD. Obama Dimocrats think they have a chance in the 2nd.

At 9:00 p.m. ET polls close in Arizona, Colorado, all of Kansas, Louisiana, all of Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, the rest of North Dakota, the rest of South Dakota, all of Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

We’ll be watching the following:

Obama Dimocrats should lose the 1st, 2nd and 9th CDs in Arizona.

In Colorado Mark Udall will lose. If he doesn’t then something is wrong with pre-election polls or else Obama Dimocrats are in election theft mode. The Obama Dimocrat passed Colorado election law is a burglars tool for election theft. Cory Gardner tonight will become Senator Cory Gardner.

Second Amendment enemy Governor John Hickenlooper is also on the ballot. If Hickenlooper loses to a gooper it will not be a great surprise but a surprise nevertheless.

In Louisiana Obama Dimocrat race-baiting Senator Mary Landrieu will lose tonight or in the runoff. As in Georgia an outright GOP win that thereby avoids a runoff election will indicate a big or massive GOP 2014 wave. Look to Jefferson Parish to indicate a Landrieu loss overall if she does not win here.

In Minnesota there once was a chance for Obama Dimocrat Governor Mark Dayton as well as Obama Dimocrat Al Franken to lose. No more. Any GOP victory here or a close race for the senate will indicate a good GOP night. We’ll also look at developments in the 7th and 8th CDs for Obama Dimocrat losses.

Surprise! We’ve even looking at election results in New York state. The 1st, (GOP) 11th, and 24th CDs should go or stay GOP. The 18th CD should stay Obama Dimocrat but there is a chance for a flip here which would be yet another indicator of a good GOP night.

The Wisconsin governor race has 2016 implications. A Walker win is big news. The legislature will stay GOP so a loss will not be a disaster for the GOP but a calamity for Walker. A Walker win and he becomes a strong 2016 contender. Is it too early to speculate Walker/Kasich?

At 10:00 p.m. ET polls close in the mountain zones of Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, the mountain zones of Oregon, and Utah.

It’s all about Iowa at this time. Joni Ernst should win. If Ernst loses the big loser is the Des Moines Register poll’s fall from the heavens. If Ernst loses it will be a great hurt for the GOP. She has a great future if she wins but if she loses she’ll be watching On The Waterfront mouthing the famous line by Marlon Brando alongside Mitch McConnell.

In Iowa the 1st and 2nd CDs should also fall to the GOP if there is a GOP wave or tide.

In Montana the Republicans will win. A victory here for Dims and the Obama’s will be sipping Champagne.

In Nevada the 4th CD should go red.

In Utah Mia Love should replace an Obama Dimocrat. If not, the wave is a weak ripple.

At 11:00 p.m. ET California, Hawaii, all of Oregon, and Washington polls close.

In California the Obama Dimocrats in the 7th, 26th, 36th, and 52nd CDs are in trouble.

In Oregon Monica Wehby once had a chance of winning a Senate seat. No longer. Only with a meteor hitting the earth with consequent massive waves can she now win.

Even in Hawaii Obama Dimocrats are roasted pigs. The GOP has a chance to win the Governor’s mansion and the 1st CD.

In Washington the 1st CD is a potential GOP win.

Midnight will find the majority of polls close in Alaska and all the polls in Alaska will shut down at 1:00 p.m. ET. The GOP should win the senate seat away from Senator Mark Begich.

In every state, on every ballot, Barack Obama and his policies are on the ballot. The Obama Dimocrat party is in shambles.

Ebola Obama’s Ebola Chickens Come Home

Our long running series “Mistake In ’08” predicted it all. Barack Obama killed the victorious FDR coalition in order to replace it with the ascendent “Situation Comedy” cult. These debauched acts were no way to build a political party. They were however a near perfect way to destroy a once great political party.

Newt Gingrich writes the epitaph for the cult of Obama Dimocrats:

Your note brought back a lot of 1994 memories.

Remember that almost no one in the media thought we would win a majority even the Monday night before the election.

You are witnessing something different but potentially equally historic.

The growth of the GOP makes it harder for us to create a tidal wave. We already occupy most of the easy spaces.

What we are seeing is something different.

Think of it as a rising tide that is creeping into purple and blue areas.

The GOP may win the Massachusetts and Connecticut governorships.

Colorado is drifting back toward the GOP.

Iowa is going to reelect the governor in a landslide and probably elect a GOP senator.

Arkansas is completing the southern drift toward the GOP.

West Virginia captures the drift theory. There has been a steady erosion in West Virginia and the [Rep. Shelley Moore] Capito landslide [in her bid to become the first Republican the state has elected to the Senate since 1956] is the culmination of a tide rising over a number of years.

The real power of the rising GOP tide is going to be seen in the state legislatures.

The number of GOP supermajorities after this election will be astounding.

This has three big effects. It puts the GOP in charge of policy and forces it to become more solution oriented. It increases the GOP’s power in redistricting. It starves the Democrats of junior incumbents to form a farm team for future big races. In some ways, the Democrats, after a 34-year drift going back to Reagan in 1980, are now moving toward the institutional weakness the Republicans had from 1932 to 1994.

[National Republican Committee chairman] Reince Priebus is going to have some very instructive breakthroughs especially with Latinos and Asian-Americans. [Ohio Gov. John] Kasich’s endorsement by the leading African-American paper in Ohio is another sign. [House speaker John] Boehner’s drive to get at least the maximum number of House seats in modern times builds a firewall that may keep the GOP in control for another generation ( who would have thought the GOP would control the House for 16 of 20 years when you were riding with me).

There will clearly be a tide on election day, and the question is how high it will rise.

If everything breaks it could be a tidal wave. If not, it will just be a rising tide.

This election year we thought the state polls would be a especially lagging indicator of what was to come. That’s why we did not begin to focus on polls until after October 15.

Why did we think the polls would lag so far behind what could be expected? The main reason is that the public is disgusted with the Republican Party and it’s refusal to confront Barack Obama with brutal opposition instead of accommodationist compromise on issues such as illegal immigration.

A secondary but not to be underestimated reason is that the American voter still can be swayed by campaigns of fear, race-baiting, and false hope and lies which are Obama Dimocrats’ strong suit. Is it possible the Obama Dimocrats could retain the senate? Sure, anything’s possible but what will not be in doubt is that America has rejected Barack Obama. That is why even Obama Dimocrats pretend not to have voted for Barack Obama.

Anything can happen, but in the end, at the very last moment, we think the voters will set aside their loathing of Republican Party calculated moves and realize that Barack Obama and his policies must be sent to the Chicago stockyards to be turned into mashed, ground down lumps of bleeding flesh. We are seeing that in some of the late breaking polls from states such as Iowa, Colorado, and Kentucky.

In 2010 the Democratic Party’s ten year plan was destroyed because of the monumental Mistake in ’08. An entire generation of party candidates was destroyed too. The damage caused by Barack Obama cannot be underestimated.

After Barack Obama the bulwark of what once was the Democratic Party will cease to be. Labor unions. Labor unions that sold out their workers into bondage to the Obama cult are in great peril and will not survive Barack Obama’s Ebola Presidency.

On Tuesday a most important election will ratify the destruction of Big Labor if Scott Walker wins reelection. Scott Walker will then be poised to run for president.

But Big Labor will not win even if Scott Walker loses. Big Labor has another Big Problem:

McConnell-Grimes outcome could decide whether Kentucky goes right-to-work

All eyes will be on Kentucky Tuesday as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell faces a serious challenge from Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. But beneath that marquee matchup lies a fierce battle between labor unions and anti-union groups over whether Kentucky, long a rare pro-union outpost in the anti-union South, becomes a right-to-work state.

Republicans hold a majority in the Kentucky state Senate; the Kentucky House is controlled by Democrats, 54-46. That means Republicans need to pick up only five seats to flip it — a task made easier if McConnell wins and extends coattails down the ballot. Should the Kentucky House go Republican, state Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer has already said that his first priority will be to pass a right-to-work bill.

Kentucky is a state with 194,000 union members, so if it passes right-to-work — shorthand for allowing individuals covered by union contracts not to pay union dues or their equivalent (thereby creating a “free rider” problem financially costly to unions) — that will deal a serious blow to organized labor. Unions have already lost tens of thousands of members in recent years from the passage of right-to-work in Indiana and Michigan. According to partial FEC filings, AFL-CIO super PAC Workers’ Voice has spent $1.08 million on the Kentucky Senate race alone.

“If the Republicans took control of the House, I would say it’s almost a certainty that right-to-work passes” says Kentucky AFL-CIO President Bill Londrigan.

Some experts reckon that the GOP wouldn’t need to pick up all five seats to flip the House. Scott Lasley, political science professor at Western Kentucky University and chairman of the Warren County Republican Party, told The Louisville Courier-Journal earlier this month that “if Republicans get close,” that will put pressure on one or more conservative Democrats to switch party affiliation.

What about Gov. Steve Beshear, a Democrat who opposes right-to-work? Wouldn’t he veto it? Probably. But under Kentucky law, the state Legislature may override a gubernatorial veto with a simple majority in both houses. That makes it a real possibility that Tuesday’s election will clear the path for Kentucky to become the 25th state to become right-to-work.

McConnell has long been a champion of right-to-work, and has sponsored a federal right-to-work law. [snip]

An August Bluegrass Poll, sponsored by Lexington’s Herald-Leader and WKYT-TV and Louisville’s Courier-Journal and WHAS-TV, showed that 55 percent of voters of registered voters support right-to-work, while only 28 percent favor leaving the law as is.

The 25th state and more to come. The baby, the bathwater, the bassinet, the nursery, the maternity ward are all about to be burned down because of the Mistake in ’08. There is no Obama Dimocrat Party without the unions that undermine their own in order to glorify Ebola Obama.

In a few days the remnants of the Obama cult will see their chickens come home to roost. The Obama chickens too have Ebola.
