Final Days, Final Drive.

October 31, 2010

With Independents and undecideds joining the Patriot movement in droves, even at this late date in the campaign, it’s just about curtains for the Democrats.

What really gets to me even now, two years into Obama’s leftist extravaganza, is how blind and deaf the Demarxists really were and, presumably, still are. They had it made. They had it all. We couldn’t stop them if we tried. But we tried. And we tried again. And in the end we still had no power. But we had stopped them. We had slowed down their agenda… and stopped them from bringing up several of their other signature abominations… for example, cap and tax and amnesty for illegals.

The very best of their tried and true story lines, told by a previously unfailing list of leftist A-listers and Hollyweird types, fell flat. They couldn’t grab a crowd at a bus stop during rush hour, so all over the country the left has been offering incentives to vote, in the form of everything from free food and concerts to actual cash to buy votes for them. It’s the only way they can fill a venue.

It’s not just that America isn’t listening to the left anymore. It’s that we did listen. What we saw and heard was enough to foster the new political reality of the Tea Party patriots.

No matter what, do not let them (the leftists) deter you for even a second. This is the final drive for success in turning back the Marxist assault on our Republic and our freedom. Don’t go getting lazy or weak now. Go back and get everyone you’ve talked to in the last six months and get them to the polls.

Vote for freedom…
Vote for America…
Vote like your life depended on it…

Shout It Out!

October 30, 2010

I remember a time not too long ago when Conservatives, especially in places like the San Francisco Bay Area, kept a pretty low profile. The ultra politically correct makeup of many businesses here can be an adventure for the bold, or a minefield for the unwary and timid.

San Francisco Tea Party, August 2009.

Don’t get me wrong. There are an awful lot of Conservative folks in the Bay Area, but for a lot of years, under the unremitting lash of the strident ultra-leftist activism here, many Conservative Patriots chose not to call attention to themselves.

As I noticed in college, some of my ‘macho’ veteran buddies just caved in and followed along with the anti-American theme running through my school and virtually every American college or university. Those of us that stood for America and were outspoken patriots were reviled, jeered at and sometimes spat upon… by the enlightened leftist thuglets in training.

There were times when our patience exhausted and we took appropriate action. But most of the time we just focused on our schooling and let the bleating of the ‘intellectual academic class’ recede into the white noise it was.

It’s been one of the great privileges of my lifetime, witnessing the first blossoming of the now Great American Patriot Movement, being able to participate in, and report on, this historic shift away from all things leftist. The ‘New American Revolution’ is here.

It’s been a visceral reaction of the entire body politic of America. We reached out and felt the immense evil of Barack Obama’s White House, the DeMarxist Congress and the slavish toadying of the lame stream press. We ought to start calling it the washed up press, because that’s exactly what happened… the American people went to the burgeoning ‘New Media’ with which this column is proud to claim membership. The people liked what we said because we told the truth… and the truth was apparent to them.

It was the beginning of the awakening of the American people. It’s like the guy who gets hammered and is groggily trying to get it together. Eventually, his head is going to clear. America has been doing a whole lot of learning in the process of the giant being aroused. We probably have a better educated and better informed electorate than any of my memory.

This is what will be the ultimate defeat of the Marxists who wish to rule our lives; these elitist academics who have never held a job nor had to meet a payroll. They have created nothing.
The voice of the American people is going to be heard all over the world next Tuesday, November 2.
Be sure you’re there!!

After The Wave.

October 29, 2010

Mike Pence said it pretty well the other day when speaking about the impending takeover of Congress, or at the very least, the House. We are going to start from day one to reduce spending and cut funding across the board. He said that he would especially pay attention to what the Patriots of this country have sent them there to do. They would not wait for 2012 and the assumptive defeat of Barack Hussein Obama.

There are also some very probing inquiries to make… of the activities of some lawmakers as well as the White House. Incoming Republican lawmakers are being advised to bring their own staff to Washington. The Republicrats that fancy themselves as the leaders of the party have planned to infiltrate the freshman lawmakers’ staffs by ‘volunteering’ to staff for them, allowing them to position spies inside Representatives’ staff to inform and influence.

It’s a very long laundry list of tasks, that are going to require the attention of our young Congress in order to do damage control on the depredations perpetrated by the DeMarxist Congress and the hard-left White House cabal of Barack Obama.

It’s going to be a different America. An America rededicated to the Constitution of the United States. An America where our borders are secure and illegal immigration laws are followed. We need to yank the funding for the Environmental Protection Agency.

While we’re slaying dragons we may as well take on the public employees unions and break the stranglehold that they, and their willing symbionts the DeMarxists, have in government, which is owned lock, stock and barrel by unions like SEIU, through multiple millions of dollars of campaign bribes… er… contributions.

Republicans are going to have to move quick when the present Congress goes into their lame-duck session in November and December. Minimizing or derailing any remaining Marxist stunts will be on the top of the agenda until the new Congress takes over.

Again, if you want to help and don’t know how, please contact the Tea Party Patriots… They can use all the help you can give.
Get out in your neighborhood and organize… Shout freedom from the rooftops!

Massive Voter Fraud And Disenfranchisement.

October 28, 2010

We, that is Dee and I, have been warning all our readers and friends to expect just exactly what the DeMarxists are doing. Everything from so far ‘unconfirmed’ reports of electronic machines marking votes for Reid on Republican ballots (machines serviced by SEIU) to military ballots being purposefully delayed more than once. Philadelphia Republicans have uncovered what looks like a Democrat scheme to overwhelm the county voting apparatus with fraudulent voter registrations. There was more electronic meddling with machines in Virginia.

A ‘ringer’ on the three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, declaring herself eligible to serve as a sort of substitute for an ailing judge, Sandra Day O’Connor, lent her unfailing ultra-left vote to the panel, and Nevada got ripped off by an activist judiciary once again.

We can look for more of the same and worse. SEIU and the other public employees unions, who in another era could easily have passed for brown shirts, are out on more of their ‘public education’ operations, which usually consists of intimidating voters and fostering voter cheating.

Republicans have launched myriad attorneys and vote watchers to key districts. All of you should be extra vigilant and observant. If you see or read anything that would contravene voting law, speak up right then and there. Don’t be a bit shy about it. The bottom line is that it’s up to you and me, all of us, to see this fight through to the end. If you want to help but don’t know how, contact the Tea Party Patriots at

In the final analysis, it’s just exactly like Rush Limbaugh said yesterday… The way we overcome their voter hi-jinks is to overwhelm them at the ballot box and that’s just what we’re going to do.
Once again, pay zero attention to ‘them’ or their polls or their misdirection… they are lying.

Why The Divisive Democrats Must Go.

October 27, 2010

This will be my last article before the mid-term elections, only six days away now. Skip and I have swapped days due to our work commitments and he will be writing Saturday’s article. While mentioning ‘the great eagle of the blogosphere’, he has stated that these elections could possibly be the most important… ever. I concur with this viewpoint and recent campaign events have further underlined this fact.

The 111th Congress has been one of the most unpopular, if not the most despised, in history. A recent Harris poll gives them an approval rating of 11%, hardly a good position for incumbents at election time. Their public approval has followed a consistent downward path, accentuated every time they instigate or enact some measure that is both intrinsically alien and unacceptable to the majority of the populace.

Eighty per cent of Americans identify as conservative or centrist. It’s not surprising that the attempts of the President and Congress to impose heavy-duty government control and regulation, à la European Union, is not well-received. This is not the EU, where the public has been molded to accept the nanny-state attitude where ‘government knows what’s best for you’.

The attempts to create a socialism-based country in the face of overwhelming opposition by the people serves to prove one undeniable fact. Obama and his followers (not to mention his Marxist mentors) are only concerned with the fruition of their ideologies. To them, the collapse of the American economy, increased unemployment and the removal of individual freedoms are a small price to pay for the realization of their dreams.

The reaction by Obama, a result of mounting pressure on the Democrats in the closing days of the campaign, are reinforcing this theory in the most hideous of ways. Historically, one of the strategies of all dictatorships is purposeful divisiveness… the promise of reward (often not fulfilled) to supporters and the demonization of opponents.

Obama has never accepted any responsibility for failure. From day one he blamed the legacy of George Bush and the effects of the last Republican-controlled Congress, a whole four years ago. After the lampooning of opposition politicians he shifted his focus to conservative media. His fixation with Fox News could only be described as an obsession… not a good thing for a supposed national leader.

By the time of the mid-term elections, he has a hit-list of ‘enemies of the state’… Republicans, Conservatives, the Tea Parties, all conservative media, man-made global warming skeptics (especially if they are highly qualified on the subject), anyone who attempts to uphold immigration laws… well, need I go on further? Not only are these folks mentioned in his auto-cued ramblings, they are usually the targets of the obligatory false accusations, name-calling and, as in the case of Arizona, legal action.

This week, Obama made an astounding comment to Latinos, urging them to, quote, “punish our enemies”. He was, of course, referring to every person who does not vote Democrat. With his continued alienation of Americans, Obama and company are left with the support of socialists, a large percentage of the black electorate (perhaps less after the NPR incident) and a smaller than anticipated number of Hispanic voters. He can take solace in the fact that he may have the support of many dead voters and illegal aliens, plus some hinky electoral procedures!

A president who regards the majority of his people as enemies, while avoiding the use of the word to describe those that would see the destruction of the United States of America, can not be allowed to continue in office. Yes, this probably is the most important election of modern times. We must re-take Congress next week, en route to replacing Obama with a president who puts the American people first, above all else.
We are not going to “sit in the back”. From next week, we will be in the driver’s seat!

Mark Levin: “We Are Not Here To Engage You, We Are Here To Crush You!”

October 26, 2010

Thank you, Mark, for the rallying cry and it couldn’t be more on message or more timely. The socialist plague rats are scurrying for their lives. If there’s a message here it’s that the Demarxists have been caught out in the open and exposed for just exactly who and what they are, to far more than just American voters.

Mark Levin

They have been exposed for the low characters that they are… the flimflam men working the rubes… until the rubes wake up. That the ‘rubes’ happen to be most of the populace of the United States and the flimflam confidence men are Obama and the clown college… all three rings of it. And the rubes are wide awake and raging!

The left is way past panic mode and are far into the desperation range on its depression meter. They’d better go have their collective Prozac… maybe on a drip feed… they’re going to need it. As Mark Levin said yesterday…They (the left) will do and say anything to discourage or dishearten Conservative voters. Most of it has no substance and has been manufactured of whole cloth.

We started warning Conservatives some time ago to be prepared for anything they throw at us. They’ve gotten pretty bold and like Mark said, it’s long past the time to talk to or engage these people. They have to be removed from the American political picture, never to be permitted to gain power again. That’s what this election is all about.

Don’t pay any attention to the noise coming from the lame stream media… they’re nothing anymore. They’re a bunch of bleating sheep without an original thought amongst them.They’re pretty much down to vicious, false personal attacks against individual Conservative candidates, against the Tea Party and the Patriots… and you, the American citizens.

We heard the President of the United States spout about Americans ‘not thinking clearly when they are afraid’. What a lame statement. The truth of the matter is that America is thinking, and very clearly at that. And Barry… we’re not afraid. No, we’re not afraid but we are raging mad. You’re going to have a ringside seat, Barry, on November 2… the day we pound you and your rotten Marxist party into sand.

So don’t listen to their polls and don’t pay attention to their commentary, for they lie with every word and every breath. Keep telling the story of freedom to your families, your friends and your neighbors.
Stay focused.

Congratulations San Francisco Giants, 2010 National League Champions.

October 25, 2010

Sorry, folks. Couldn’t help myself. This column, or at least half of it, originates in the greater SF Bay Area. This team is peaking at just the perfect time. We wish the Giants good fortune in the World Series this week. I hope this doesn’t cost me my American League readers (grin).

Giants closer Brian Wilson.

I’m minded of the similarity of the last-stretch drive of the Patriots of this country to the election, and the Giants’ final run to the World Series. It’s been a story of the Patriot drive to wrest this great nation from impending destruction at the hands of ideologically driven socialists.

Leftist pundits and politicians have been predicting the demise of the Tea Party and Patriot movement practically from the moment that Rick Santelli coined the phrase. Many loosely organized groups of friends and neighbors predated Rick, but it turned out to be the clarion call that went from coast to coast in days, as Americans voiced alarm and anger over a totally unresponsive rogue, runaway government. Every time they said we were finished we grew exponentially. Now they are looking at a nationwide patriot movement numbering a couple of million voters… and counting. People are still flooding to the Conservative banner.

The left doesn’t understand freedom. It’s no more complicated than that. There is some basic personality flaw that must affect all liberals equally. They are the most hateful, miserable creatures alive. Always blaming or looking to blame. Always complaining even when there is no cause for complaint. Slavishly subservient to the secular god of government. Government is liberalism’s be-all and end-all. It’s their shining palace on the hill and their highest aspiration.

I’m positive that Barack Obama never anticipated the spontaneous uprising of American patriotism that he and his Marxist buddies encountered. Barack Obama never bonded with this or any country. As a kid he was knocked from pillar to post, as my grandmother would have said. He never put down roots. His family was liberal and had anti-American feelings. His mentor was a communist party operative who bathed him in the communist doctrine. All of his associations are anti-American and many are Marxists or, like Frank Marshall Davis, an out-and-out communist.

Is it any wonder that Obama just does not get it where freedom is concerned?
That’s what is going to defeat him. That’s what is going to defeat his party on November 2.

NPR/PBS – The Ugly Reality Of Liberalism On Display.

October 24, 2010

I’ve never liked national public radio and television. In the early days, when ‘public’ programming was mostly locally controlled, PBS used to be sort of fun. They actually addressed both sides of mostly local issues.

As the National Public Radio and Television networks came on line there was a noticeable leftward shift in programming… I noticed it especially around college broadcasting. However, the national network programs also fostered a definite liberal agenda, with short shrift for opposing opinions.

All of PBS is sucking, at least partially, at the public trough. I’ve heard figures of anywhere from 2 to 7 percent. I suspect the latter, only because succeeding governments have never been shy about pumping money into liberal causes. Their donor lists are a who’s who of very wealthy leftist foundations, all pumping money into them to support the leftist-socialist agenda.

PBS and NPR gradually swung farther and farther left, to the point that the ultra politically correct atmosphere was effectively stifling any opinions not falling within the rigid framework of their narrow ideology.

PBS and NPR have always been liberalism’s happy face to the nation. What they did to one of their own this week has torn the dressing off of an open and suppurating wound. It doesn’t smell very good either. What NPR did to Juan Williams was a classic example of how quickly and how viciously the left turns and devours any of those whom it deems to have left the fold. The message is clear. Violate the orthodoxy that is socialist political correctness and you will be cast out. Speak the truth and be scourged in the furnace of the left’s agitation propaganda machine and be destroyed.

It’s possible that NPR may not have picked the best time in the century to make not only a broadcasting martyr out of Juan Williams, but a political one as well. They may have done more damage to their (Obama’s) cause than they realize. Americans, both Democrat and Conservative, don’t like what was done to Juan.

Juan Williams is, by report and by my own observation over an extended period of time, an honest liberal who loves and respects his country. He is a liberal and by definition wrong, but Juan would always be fair and at least acknowledge the conservative argument.

What greater contrast could there be between the left and the right? Between the darkness of socialistic mind control and free people in a free and open society. No, I don’t think this massive display of PC excess has done them or their cause any good.

The mindset of the American people at this time, ten days before the election, is somewhere far south of ugly. As a matter of fact, I’ve been hearing the term ‘voter rage’ recently… Rage is a good way to put it.
Let’s focus that rage on the ones for whom it is intended and work hard for ten days to put this thing away.

Where’s Wildo?

October 23, 2010

By the time you read this, possibly somewhere in Michigan. Just like television sweeps time, it’s a pretty safe bet to wheel out an old favorite to draw the crowds. Nothing new, the same worn out story lines… but with a comfort factor like that favorite pair of old slippers.

Where's Wildo? Clinton in Denver, 2008.

The Democrat mid-term election campaign has been disastrous. They could not campaign on their achievements, which included what is possibly the most unpopular bill in recent decades, or their track record on employment and the economy. Some attempted to use the ‘fear factor’, warning voters of the result of going back to the days of the Republican-controlled Congress. Can anyone truly say that things were not better before 2006 than they are today?

Their alternative strategy of trying to appear centrist in the campaign ads has fallen flat. It fails to impress the die-hard liberal voter and cannot sway the conservatives, who have long memories. Just like the long list of Obama pre-election promises that were never fulfilled, or totally reversed, this pathetic attempt to woo the electorate has become totally transparent.

While Obama sets off on a whistle-stop tour of key states, no doubt spinning his divisive spiel to minority groups along the way, many beleaguered Democrats prefer to invoke the nostalgia quotient.

There is more than a little irony that the man who was so scathing of Obama in 2008 is jumping in to the ring in an attempt to do what the President can not. The electorate are not falling for the lies and smears in the campaigns, so they bring in Bill Clinton to lend a hand. Do I detect a hint of irony in that sentence, also?

Much of the election coverage has included talk of a possible rift between the establishment GOP and the Tea Party. This is nothing to what I can foresee happening to the post-election Democrats. Not only is Clinton rallying to the Democrats’ call, they are rallying to him… in a way they never would to Obama.

It’s quite possible that Clinton is attempting this act of damage control out of loyalty to his party. I have read pundits’ opinions on his motives, which include his “love of the limelight”, “addiction to adulation” and “repaying a debt to those who helped Hillary in 2008”.

I would say they are all pretty much on the money, although the last statement is the most interesting, with possible future implications.

Hillary is noticeably giving Obama a wide berth, almost to the point of disassociation. I could not believe the rumors that there was talk of a Clinton-Biden job swap. While Biden is the nodding yes-man that Obama needs, I could not imagine Hillary in that role. The only possible reason that she would be appointed VP is in the event of Obama having to give up the Presidency, perhaps through ill-health… maybe stress or insanity.

I believe it’s a certainty that Hillary Clinton will run for the Presidency, probably sooner rather than later. The dutiful husband is already laying the groundwork with their loyal band of supporters. He knows, she knows, the majority of Democrats know that their party is doomed if they maintain the far-left policies of the Obama regime.

After November 2, Obama will be pretty much a lame duck, with little support from his party, no support from Congress and a public that wants nothing more than to see the back of him.
Enter, stage right……

Eleven Days To The Beginning.

October 22, 2010

I don’t mind telling you it’s been a very long 21 months under the socialist, redistributionist Obama administration. The cheap chrome job is showing the base metal underneath.

All across the nation the Marxists are on the run, even as the lame stream bleats out fractured story lines about largely fanciful DeMarxist gains, as the badly duped American citizen begins to come to his senses. Nothing could be farther from reality. The nationwide mobilization of the Tea Party Patriots has already begun… millions of us registering, encouraging and aiding other Americans to vote for freedom.

That’s exactly what we’re talking about here folks… our freedom, yours and mine. We’re talking about regaining that which has been lost in the Marxist assault on our country. We’re talking about rededicating ourselves to the single greatest document ever conceived. The founders were giants among the men of their time… such a striking contrast to the mental midgets that infest, far too much, our body politic.

If you are a Marxist liberal, we are here to tell you that your days are numbered. The American Patriot movement is on the march and if you get in our way we’ll simply roll over you.

The Republican establishment types are taking shots at one of the finest of their membership, who simply will not compromise his values and who advocates a return to morality in America. Jim DeMint is one of the finest Senators in the nation and is a solid Tea Party Conservative Patriot. The leadership had better pay attention because we are.

Note to back-biting Republicrats. You may be biting off much more than you want to try and chew. How would it be to wake up one morning to find that the RNC has lost its power to resolve anything; much less who’s going to run where. You so-called establishment Republicans had better get your heads out of the sand and start counting votes… there’s not many… most of the votes are in the hands of the Patriots.

So you can go ahead and play your games, but I can tell you for certain that in many people’s eyes the Republican brand has been damaged beyond repair. You simply can’t be trusted.

Here’s something to send you home with dyspepsia… think about this one for a second.
American Patriot Party… Mike Pence at the top of the ticket with ‘Barracuda’ Palin as his running mate.
Food for thought.
