From Soup To Nuts.

June 11, 2012

Some of the most enduring images of the great depression of 1929-1939 are those of long lines of obviously beaten-down men in soup lines… hungry women and children with haunted eyes. Shantytowns sprang up all over the country, called Hoovervilles in mocking derision of the disastrous policies that engendered the crash and the even worse schemes which perpetuated the depression until 1939 and the advent of the Second World War.

Twenty five per cent unemployment… some eleven million three hundred thousand people lost their jobs, homes and farms, out of a pre-depression population of 120 million. Contrast that to today, with a population of over 312.8 million with some 27 million American workers no longer on the unemployment rolls. These folks didn’t just fly to never-never land. They are the flotsam and jetsam of Barack Hussein Obama and his DeMarxists’ living fantasies. It’s that pesky hopey changey thing again.

Today, there are forty five million plus families dependent on food stamps in Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Ameritopia’ (thanks, Mark Levin). There are 15.7 million Americans officially out of work, despite all the DeMarxist spin to the contrary. In Barack Hussein Obama’s America, one million one hundred thousand jobs were lost by women. So much for the Republicans’ and Mitt Romney’s supposed ‘war on women’.

The true war is on all of  America and, just like the depression, it was brought on by unsound monetary policies. The world’s, and most specifically Europe’s, economy was devastated after the First World War. It was U.S. money and U.S. know-how and determination that rescued Europe et al from the utter devastation that was World War Two, rather than leave them to the gentle ministrations of the Soviets and their slave states.

We cannot lift Europe from her own abject ignorance of viable economic policy. It has as much to do with the attitude of subservience that seems to be pervasive in so much of the continent. A relic of lingering feudalism, which we here in the United States rejected hundreds of years ago. They call it socialism now. We know it as communism light. It’s antithetical to everything we believe here… at least the vast majority of us.

We’ve watched the DeMarxists attempt to destroy our republic with growing anger and resolve, which has translated itself to a nationwide movement dedicated to the removal of Barack Obama and all of his Marxists. It’s becoming apparent to all but the most dedicated of the kool-aid crowd that Obama and the reds are in deep Kimchee. The tone around the Washville swamp is one of increasing desperation, as the Democrats assess the magnitude of the public’s displeasure. Further, they cannot hide the dismay and confusion that’s boiling out of the nation’s capital these days.

It’s not just Obama’s crowd that’s sweating it either… a look around at races across the nation will show that Tea Party candidates are winning, and winning big. The great RINO hunt of 2012 is well under way. All of the bought-and-paid-for votes of the Republican turncoats will be scrutinized, along with the Republican Party’s limp-wristed and ineffectual leadership. There is much to be reconciled there as well. Americans deserve leadership responsive to the voters that they serve.

Growing Momentum.

September 19, 2010

Barack Obama’s America doesn’t exist and never has. Seen through the eyes of Conservatives, it’s a bleak and desolate landscape. We should win in November. We should win really big in November.

What we have to be very careful of is over-confidence. Over-confidence has a way of creeping in, especially when all the political forecasts, even the left’s own, are indicating a huge sea-change. In the short-term we have to be prepared for the left’s usual election day hi-jinks.

Let us not forget the tens of thousands of false registrations generated by ACORN. By the way, ACORN is still lurking out there under various names, and there is evidence of a resurgent ACORN in some cities.

We watched Barney Frank literally steal an election. This should be a huge reality check… this sort of illegal behavior should be expected in any close race. The Democrats are going to be getting very desperate between now and the election, as are Obama and his administration. We have to be extra vigilant and move quickly to counter any DeMarxist cutesy tricks.

It’s time to consider what a Conservative government might look like. It was pointed out that, even after the new crop of Conservative Representatives and Senators, there will be plenty of work ahead. There’s just no room in the new Conservative Republican party for phony moderates – RINOs. To me, a moderate Republican is just a liberal without the guts to say so.

The coming Conservative revolution will be the shot heard around the world. The last thing our foreign enemies want to see is a strong, united Conservative government in the United States.

Once again, if you’re not registered, get that way. Talk to your friends and neighbors. If they’re not registered, help them get that way. See if there’s anyone in your area that would need a ride to their polling place. Encourage everyone you meet to vote!!
That’s how we’re going to win.

Watching The Clock.

August 27, 2010

I’ve figured it out… we’ve got this all wrong. There have been 3.5 million new and saved jobs since Obama took office. We know ’cause they told us so.

The problem is, it’s not the truth. It’s not even close to the truth. The truth is that the American people aren’t buying the story lines any more. The spin scarcely has time to get started before we tear it apart and subject it to the ‘new media review’. By the time we unravel it, there’s not much spin.

I guess we’re all sort of stunned out here, watching this administration self destruct. It’s not just that Barack Obama and that pack of amateurs he has in his government are wrong in their approach to governing and economic policy for this country. It’s that they have been, and are, wrong about every single thing they’ve done since taking office.

With the November 2 elections right around the corner, the desperation in some corners of the Democrat establishment is palpable. With the clock running out, so are the options for incumbent Democrats, some of whom have already fallen by the wayside in primaries across the nation… with many more to come.

If the mood of the nation remains as ugly as it is today, it will become a historical event.
It can’t come soon enough. Clock watching is hard work.

Democrats’ Cover Tactics – Shift The Blame.

July 23, 2010

Shirley Sherrod got her phone call from President Obama. I’m not quite sure why she was so eager to speak to him… she did not seem to hold him accountable for her recent predicament and, in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Sherrod stated that she did not want an apology from him or indeed expect one, given his position as President. Ms Sherrod has learned one thing – Obama only apologizes when overseas.

Shirley Sherrod

Barack Obama had no part in this affair, although the fallout has come back to sting him in the tail. A good leader is one that takes responsibility for the actions of his team. In that respect, he should have apologized for the hasty decision of his Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack.

The amount of embarrassment caused to the Obama administration could be gauged by the obvious discomfort of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. If I didn’t know better, I’d have said that Mr Gibbs’ new shoes were pinching, as he shifted awkwardly behind his lectern.

This whole mess was created by the Department of Agriculture, the NAACP and one or more members of the White House staff. Shirley Sherrod seemed convinced that her termination orders were issued by someone in the White House. It smacks of panic at the prospect of another race-related media attack on the administration. As usual, the liberals are trying to distract the public from their own failings by trying to pin the whole, sorry state of affairs on conservatives. While it may be true that the original video was posted by Andrew Breitbart, to openly accuse him of racism and a desire to return to the days of slavery is unwarranted. Perhaps the CNN video was not shown in its entirety, causing the message to be misconstrued also?

By her own confession, Shirley Sherrod had not given the white farmer “the full force of what [she] could do”. A later part of her speech, omitted in the original video posting, goes on to explain that “working with [the farmer] made me see that it’s really about those who have versus those who have not. They could be black. They could be white. They could be Hispanic”. This does not detract from the fact that, initially, she had little inspiration to help a white farmer. It reminds me a little of someone who was once a Klansman and later regretted the fact. Of course, being a Democrat, his expression of guilt absolved him.

The most ridiculous part of this fiasco is the left stream media’s attempt to apportion blame to Fox News, implying that their coverage of the speech instigated Sherrod’s dismissal. A number of other network and cable stations covered the item before FNC gave it any airtime. While the video was on their website, it was also on YouTube. Naturally, YouTube is not regarded as a threat by the liberals. It’s owned by Google. Google and the White House?… well, you can draw your own conclusions.

It is fairly obvious that the left are targeting Andrew Breitbart, Fox News and the Tea Party Movement in an attempt to save what remains of their unpopular, discredited government. They know that they are not afraid to confront their accusations head-on, as proved when Breitbart offered $100,000 for evidence of the racist attack by the Tea Party.

To use race as a political tool is reprehensible. To accuse those who are innocent of racism is abhorrent. Those who use these tactics as a last-ditch attempt to save themselves from defeat should think about the potential results of their actions, for they are the ones who could turn back the clock and recreate mistrust between black and white.

The fact that Barack Obama is black is immaterial to the Tea Party movement. The fact that he is steering the country to socialism, economic and social destruction is relevant. We will oppose anyone that does not respect the Constitution and threatens the very fabric of American society – regardless of color. That is equality!

Obama Trainwreck: Racism Reigns Supreme.

July 15, 2010

Sooner or later, the wolf in the sheepskin reveals its true character or, in the case of the Obamas, their lack of. Yes, we are speaking plural here… Michelle Obama is, if anything, a more strident racist than Barack Hussein.

NAACP President Ben Jealous has accused the Tea Party Movement of racism.

Meanwhile, out here in the real world… the one whose real unemployment rate is pushing 18%, where four out of five Americans can’t find enough work to feed their families and whose extended unemployment benefits have been curtailed by partisan bickering in the Senate, with DeMarxists insisting that unemployment be paid for as part of additional spending… some twenty billion dollars worth (big surprise).

Republicans, for their part, are not unaware of the urgency of the situation, as hundreds of thousands of unemployed have had their only source of income cut since June 12. They want the money to be paid for utilizing spending cuts. They have offered four separate compromises which have been uniformly rejected by the DeMarxists. So, while the Congress dithers and the Obama administration considers more ways and means to gin up racial tension in the country to rejuvenate their severely flagging base, far from uniting the country the Obamas have, by their every word and deed, shown themselves to be the basest of racists.

The crying shame in all of this is that it is so unnecessary. The Democrats and their race-pandering, welfare-peddling policies have tried, and in far too many cases succeeded, in placing minorities, in particular blacks, into the ‘new plantation system’. It is a dark and evil place, where the images of racism have got to be perpetuated in order to foster the requisite mental attitudes of victimization, helplessness and slavish dependence on government.

More than one million two hundred thousand American men have fought and died for freedom, from the Civil War to the present, to preserve and protect the very freedoms the race-haters take so lightly. Since Obama took office, the racial divide in this country has become more and more pronounced. From the institutional racists such as Eric Holder, Representative Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles, to professional race haters such as the increasingly irrelevant Jesse Jackson and the never-to-miss-an-opportunity Al (Tawana Brawley) Sharpton. They crawl out of the woodwork at a moment’s notice, to stir the ashes of race and set them alight once more. It’s all they have. They’re a one trick pony and many minorities have come to see how empty their words, and how false the images they portray, are.

Barack Hussein Obama is a badly flawed and failed President with an administration in shambles. DeMarxist politicians are bailing out as fast as possible, to distance themselves as far from Obama as they can while they can. Americans won’t be duped any longer. Oddly enough, it’s been the racists themselves who have expiated the so-called white guilt. We’ve come full circle on the entire race issue now. We don’t owe you a thing.
Have a great life.

Yes Michael, It Is Obama’s War.

July 3, 2010

But first… Michael Steele. Those who read this column regularly will know that I have had some reservations about Michael Steele’s leadership of the RNC. These misgivings had more to do with what I perceived to be a lack of leadership qualities on his part, rather than some of the other criticisms that were cast about out there. Lately, it seems that he can’t open his mouth without putting his foot in it. His latest foray into shoe leather has produced a tempest that may not be shoved under the stoop so easily.

Michael Steele

Afghanistan is not Barack Obama’s war. Barack Obama made it his war. Afghanistan was treated like a sideshow during the early years of the Iraq war. After initial successes there it was relegated to a backwater status and put on auto-pilot while assets were concentrated elsewhere. Not a smart thing to do with a conflict in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth, against one of the most vicious enemies on the planet.

Barack Obama attempted to use Afghanistan as a foil against the war in Iraq, which he had often and vociferously promised his nutcake base that he would bring to an end, and have the troops marching home with flowers in their rifle barrels. Obama was unprepared (gee, what a surprise) and badly advised about the conditions on the ground there. That crowd of Marxist academics he has surrounding him could be much better employed sharpening pencils or counting paper clips… anything but making policy.

Obama once again deluded himself that we could somehow win the Afghanistan affair by not winning it. Hence the months of purposeful foot dragging (sounds like the gulf oil spill, doesn’t it?) in responding to his theater commander’s troop requirements which have yet to be met in full.

Michael Steele is not so much wrong in fact as in substance.
Yea verily, it is Obama’s war… now. What is apparent is the lack of depth and understanding of Steele’s ill-considered statement. I’m concerned about the “leader” of the Republican National Committee being so thoughtless… thoughtless about the context of what he said and the historical context in which he said it.

At a stage when we, as Conservative Republicans, are demanding more and more from our representatives… I’m just not sure he’s the right guy for these times.

We Don’t Want Kagan! Republican Senators, Who Are You Working For?

July 2, 2010

You’d think that, after the millions and millions of telephone calls, letters, emails, faxes, personal visits to local and beltway offices… you’d think that after witnessing the millions upon millions of Americans taking their time and using their own rapidly diminishing personal treasure in literally tens of thousands of meetings across the country and in Washington DC, that the so-called Republican leadership would have gotten a clue.

Elena Kagan has no more qualification for the Supreme Court than Minnie Mouse has for a physics laboratory. It took the NRA to bring attention to what we in the Patriot community have been literally shrieking at you Senators… that we expect you to do the will of the people who sent you there. Apparently, and judging by the round after round of softball questions and obfuscating answers by Kagan, you are either deaf or incompetent.

Barack Obama has no ‘right’ to Supreme Court nominations of his choice. Barack Obama is a communist. Elena Kagan is a Marxist in his exact image. What the hell is it going to take to make you people wake up and smell the roses? Your oath of office is to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. Obama is the enemy, make no mistake about it. Barack Obama and his DeMarxists are the greatest threat to this Republic in memory, possibly in history. ‘Giving’ Obama another Supreme Court nominee is like giving a spoiled brat a loaded revolver… pointed at our heads.

Now to be “fair and balanced”, there are some truly patriotic Republican Senators serving our country, but if you don’t have the intestinal fortitude to confront this perennial handful of pathetic excuses we’ll have to do it for you, and politically it won’t be pretty. You seem to think that we out here in the Patriot movements don’t talk to each other. You’re sadly mistaken… this movement has grown to the point where we can, and will, shift millions of votes if that is what is necessary. We have told you time after time that we will not tolerate the ‘old boy’ good time Charlie attitudes that have cost Conservatives and the country again and again. Having our own turn against us is getting very old, very fast.

The NRA is taking the lead on resistance to the Kagan nomination. They’re spotlighting the votes of the Republicans and ‘moderates’ in the nominating committee and will closely monitor the votes in the full Senate. The NRA has four million members nationwide. Almost without exception these Americans vote… millions more patriots will vote with them. The events of the last two years should be instructive to the mealy-mouthed treacherous “Repubics”, as Mark Levin is wont to call them.

There will be no ‘safe’ seats in the House or the Senate. We will name you and shame you before the nation whose trust you have scorned.
Then we will hound you from office.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs… No Jobs! Two Million To Lose Unemployment Benefits.

June 30, 2010

It’s one of those worst-case nightmare scenarios that every worker from Maine to Hawaii has been experiencing for more than two years now, with one out of five Americans unable to find work in Barack Obama’s wonderland and unemployment benefits about to end for two million unemployed by Saturday.

Once again Congress has descended into partisan bickering, as Congressional DeMarxists attempt to add more spending to existent legislation and Republicans insisting that any additional jobless benefits be paid for by reductions in debt. It’s the classic Democrat-Republican impasse, with the American people trapped in between.

Republicans are correct in doing everything possible to reduce the DeMarxist money juggernaut which is threatening to impoverish the country for decades to come. However, the active principle should be the welfare of the people who have seen their jobs lost, due to the suicidally unwise monetary policies set in place by both Democrats and Republicans.

It cracks me up when I hear hear sage ‘economists’ pontificating that Americans are using unemployment as an ‘excuse’ for not finding jobs. Having spoken to many people over the last two years who have found themselves in the position of having lost their jobs, I can assure you that few, if any, were using unemployment as some sort of paid vacation. With rare exception, unemployment doesn’t pay enough to live or support a family on… much less make mortgage payments. The continuing waves of foreclosures are mute testimony to this.

Any Conservative will tell you that the very idea of dependence on government is repugnant indeed. But these are not normal times… with the actual unemployment figures much closer to seventeen per cent, as opposed to the meek 9.6% the government claims it to be. Job losses are much closer to great depression levels than in any recession we’ve had.
Congress should set aside their differences on this.

Monomania? Obama’s Increasingly Schitzoid World.

March 8, 2010

Obama’s world view has room for few things in it other than himself. He came into office with a whole series of puzzling dichotomies orbiting around his condescending head. From “the sweetest sound I ever heard was the sound of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayers in the evening” to “my muslim faith”, (George Stephanopoulos quickly stepping in and saving Obama with “Your Christian faith?”). Obama: “My Christian faith”.
Obama: “I have always been a Christian”. Obama: “The United States is not a Christian nation”.

He wants to cut taxes for households who do not pay federal taxes and increase taxes on households who provide jobs for low income families who would then be able to pay federal taxes. He says he wants a ‘vigorous and open debate‘ and then runs at breakneck speed to avoid it. Obama claimed he never prayed in a mosque. The facts proved otherwise. He claimed he was never a proponent of single payer universal health care, despite video-taped evidence to the contrary.
He claims his remarks about ‘bitter’ Americans are taken out of context and then proceeds to repeat his attacks on gun owners, religious persons and an angry electorate with every reason to be angry.

He stated that his parents met at the Selma civil rights march. It happened four years after he was born. He claimed he never received money from big oil interests. He lied about that too.

Obama has a lot of mental baggage he carries around. One of the big problems with Obama is that he sees this country as some sort of overgrown third-world banana republic. He refuses to see this country for its universal exceptionalism. To do so would destroy everything he believes in. His core belief centers around an image of America and Americans that exists only in his egocentric world view, a world in which he is right and anything and anybody who dissents from that viewpoint is simply discarded. His globe-trotting apologist posturing before some of the planet’s most detestable tyrants says much about the lack of character of a man who denigrates the country which has not only nurtured him, but has improbably raised him to the highest office in the land.

His loyalties are divided… several times. His poorly denied devotion to the spirit of Islam colors everything about his dealings with world events. His philosophical sympathies follow the teachings of Alinsky, Marx and Lenin far more so than Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe or Lincoln. His commitment to this country, its constitution and its principles of freedom are problematic at best.

Divided loyalties make for really confused policy, foreign or domestic. His determination to advance a universally unpopular piece of legislation, despite the overwhelming disapproval of a virtually united electorate, without regard to the almost certain decimation of his party in the upcoming mid-term elections, is egomaniacal in the extreme.
Once again, who are you working for Barack Hussein Obama?
