The Nightmare Before Christmas.

December 25, 2010

Wherever you live on the planet, the jolly red-faced gentleman, hitching up his pants around his portly frame, will have visited you by now. Er… no, I’m not referring to Barney Frank! The Christmas holiday is a time to chill out (or perhaps ‘freeze’ would be a better description, Mr Gore!) and try to forgive those that have done us wrong throughout the year.

There’s certainly a lot to forgive this year. The year started with the news that the number of long-term unemployed was the highest since official records began, back in 1948. While the country suffered the effects of high unemployment, low consumer confidence and failing businesses, the Obama administration was engaged in a war.

This was not the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, not even the generalized ‘war on terror’. This was their private war on Arizona. Forced into taking action at state level, due to the inaction of federal agencies, Governor Brewer was informed that her actions were unconstitutional. An amazing statement, given that the state legislation was, in most respects, a copy of the federal immigration policy.

The administration’s lame excuse was that it promoted racial profiling, even though the Arizona bill prevented such actions. This denial of the facts is the same as that shown by the powers granted to the TSA. Humiliate obviously innocent Americans with naked images and ‘sexual assaults’ (that’s what it is, folks), while allowing groups that are most likely of misdemeanor to conduct their own pat-downs.

Obama’s reluctance to comment on the folly that was the planned Ground Zero mosque was further proof of his fear of alienating his remaining support base. He knew that if he lost the support of the black, Hispanic, muslim and gay sectors (and, dare I say it, the illegal voters), his days would be numbered.

Never mind the unemployment figures and dying businesses – we can fix that with new, clean technology industries (Obama’s fixation with batteries); Don’t worry about the threat on the southern border – we’ll look at giving citizenship to the children of illegals; There’s no reason to be concerned about the spiraling federal deficit – we’ll introduce a VAT-style tax to give us more money for earmarks… after all, your money is the government’s money!

As the year approaches its end and we look forward to a new Congress in 2011, hopefully all this will will vanish like a bad dream… the nightmare before Christmas!

A Merry Christmas to our readers, from Skip and myself.

Hey, Napolitano. Hands Off Our Junk!

November 16, 2010

Janet Napolitano took a jolt of testosterone and ‘stood up’ to the incipient rebellion of American citizens, who have had it up to their eyeballs by the vast overreach of the federal government today.

The DeMarxists and their unions, in their zeal to obtain absolute control over everything, have finally gotten around to our scrotums and vaginas. Of course, Janet, taking manly control of the situation, has chided the American people for daring to object to the Obama Transportation Safety Administration’s high-handed tactics.

American Patriots, now that we have the rats in the administration and in Congress either on the run or shedding trails of rat pellets getting ready to run, are getting around to the promises we made to the DeMarxists all along during the last two years. Inquiries, people! Investigations, committees and subpoenas under oath. Say, for instance… oh, I don’t know… an audit of the Fed?!

Or here’s one that should send Barney (the banking queen) Frank screaming for the exits… an audit of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. An investigation into TARP is also on the way. Inquiries into the Democrats interference with border control and illegal immigration are sure to be demanded by the American people… to the extent such inquiries roll over and engulf some of our ‘moderates’ and RINOs. Oh well, you sure picked the wrong bunch to hang out with.

By the way, we see Dick Army supposedly emerging as a ‘leader’ of the Patriots? Don’t make me laugh. Whatever Army is, Conservative isn’t one of them. Go home, Dick.

While we’re at it, we may just as well start the fight to break the back of the public service unions. That’s a battle that has been deferred almost to the destruction of the country.

Yeah, Napolitano, we’re mad. We’re still here and we’re coming after your cozy little sinecure next. What the left still hasn’t figured out is that we, the American Patriot Movement, are beholden to no one. It’s driving them crazy, which is also just fine by us. There was a famous British Naval toast (when Britain still had a Navy). It went, ‘Confusion to the enemy’.
Happy rebellion, Janet.

Congratulations! San Francisco Giants, 2010 World Champions.

November 2, 2010

San Francisco won’t sober up for a week… but not to fear. One day before, possibly, the most important election of our or any time. Conservatives show up to vote regardless. Minimally motivated Bay Area lefties probably aren’t going to hit the polls with a massive overhang, which most of the city and much of the ‘burbs are likely to have.

Advantage: Patriots. We may steal a march on the hordes of the raging liberal beast… we’re still outnumbered but maybe we can scare them… and maybe influence some close races.

The surest way you can help at this late date is to make darn sure that you and yours make it to the polls. Call your couch potato buddies and roust them out. Tell them their freedom depends on it. We can’t let up now… and maybe never again. We have to steel ourselves for the long pull because this is but the very beginning.

All of the election prognostications, even those of the most slavishly devoted DeMarxist mouthpieces, are now painfully admitting that they are going to get annihilated tomorrow. We’re also going to see the hordes of DeMarxist attorneys to call for recounts, à la Barney (I didn’t know it was a whorehouse) Frank. The ‘public’ service goons and their money is out in full force.

The DeMarxists have little or nothing to run on, except for the few and courageous lawmakers who refused to sign on to any of Barack Obama’s agenda, and it’s probably too late for them too. The Obama, Reid, Pelosi triumvirate has painted all Democrats with the same broad brush and it’s going to be a very, very bad year for incumbents.
God Bless you and God Bless this great nation.

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.

Barney! Say It Isn’t So.

August 22, 2010

Barney Frank lauded, flacked and defended the two institutions many people feel were major factors in the collapse of the mortgage market and, through them, the housing and construction industries.

Barney Frank

Fannie and Freddie, the two government entities which had been producing most of the high-risk paper, bundling it and selling it to other mortgage banks. Eventually, the market turned toxic with bad mortgages and the actual and threatened failures of many of the banking institutions that had gambled on these billions of dollars of worthless bundled mortgages.

Even in the face of the obvious disaster that befell us in 2008, just in time to panic an already nervous public into thinking the sky was falling, Barney Frank was steadfast in his defense of the two low-income mortgage giants.

I was listening to Larry Kudlow’s radio audience filet him for appearing to praise Barney Frank for his abrupt turn around about Fannie and Freddie saying, “they should be abolished”. Larry seems to think that Barney had an epiphany regarding Fannie and Freddie and the entire low-income loan business, among other revelations. He thinks Frank is a serious politician and, as he puts it, “a thinker”. Ok, Larry, if you say so, but I’m equally certain that whatever comes of all that furious thinking does not, in general, bode well for the American people.

I’m wondering if Mr Frank may be looking for political cover in the impending storm coming up in November. In fairness to Larry Kudlow, he disagrees with just about everything Frank says. I’ve made no secret of my dislike for Barney Frank and what he helped perpetrate. For him to ride out the back end of this, as the redeemed advocate for free market solutions, would be disingenuous at best.
He hasn’t changed his spots Larry… just his tune.

Ahh–Ha-Ha-Ha-Haa…Wipeout! – WSJ/NBC Poll.

June 26, 2010

DeMarxists in Congress are accelerating their totalitarian lockstep to steal your country away from you before the mid-term elections will sweep them from power in both Houses and put an abrupt end to their dreams of a communist America. I’m getting really tired of reading mush-headed, mealy-mouthed writers who haven’t the courage of their supposed convictions. Liberal-Progressive (the favored term du jour of our little red friends)-Socialist-Leninist-Marxist-Communist. These terms are completely interchangeable.

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd

There’s a classic pic of the intrepid duo of Barney (The Banking Queen) Frank and his bud, Chris (Cretin) Dodd coming out of the White House, with Frank looking like he just finished doing what he does best, according to rumors around the beltway… pulling his pants back up. Not surprising, given we are talking about the guy whose male prostitute boyfriend was running a gay brothel out of Frank’s Washington Condo. (Has anybody cleared this dude with the health dept?) Hey, Obama… want everybody in the country tested for AIDS/HIV? No need to look any farther than your own backyard for a start.

Amazing. The statists still haven’t figured out that the vast number of people in this country are, have been and, God willing, always will be in committed monogamous relationships. The DeMarxists put much into the effort to make you think differently, as the destruction of the moral fabric of America is, if not the most important item on their agenda, very close to it.

Barney Frank is a totally despicable human being. That he now has the nerve to hammer banking regulation when he was one of the principal architects of the mortgage banking crash is chutzpah to a spectacular degree.

Special note to the liberal hack/anarchists sitting in their mamas’ basements taking shots at people like Dee and myself: now that’s a personal attack.

Unfortunately, I see absolutely no way to remove Frank from his cozy little gerrymandered sinecure any time soon. The best we can do is to isolate the little toad and send him shrieking into the background.

After delineating a really grim assessment, WSJ/NBC Democrat pollster Peter Hart, in part, had this to say, “a really ugly mood and an unhappy electorate” – happily for Conservatives, which now outnumber their radical statist opposites by more than two to one. Mr Hart has masterfully understated the absolute rage boiling just under the surface out here in the hinterlands.

Something with equal downside potential is the DeMarxist failed attempt at driving wedges into the ever-more-powerful Conservative/Patriot/TeaParty/Republican coalition, which they attempted to fragment with the old Bill Clinton – Ross Perot third party siren song. Didn’t work. Next, they attempted to demonize the people they perceived to be the ‘leaders of the movement’. Uh-uh, that hasn’t worked either. They’re afraid to go home and face their constituents.

I guess the only tactic left to them would be the scorched-earth policy of trying to steal the election— a very risky move given the mood of the country, but a typical communist desperation tactic, which in any country other than this one would have reasonable expectation of success.
America is on the march… and it’s not the Obamao lockstep either.

Obama – A Case Of Diminishing Returns.

January 25, 2010

David Axelrod is telling us breathlessly that his glorious leader is FEISTY. I guess from that monumental statement Conservatives should be quaking in our boots in anticipation of the drubbing to be handed out by the President during his state of the union address. Pardon us while we don’t get overly apprehensive about repackaged garbage. According to White House insiders President Obama will focus on JOBS and the DEFICIT. In other words, everything he has worked so diligently to destroy in his ideological drive to transform this nation a la Saul Alinsky.

David Axelrod

This is worth repeating. While Obama is busy revamping his message and telling us what a terrible raw deal he was handed by George Bush… remember that one? The one engineered by Democrats through Fannie and Freddie, Acorn, AIG and players like Goldman Sachs, with the willing accompaniment and active interference of people like Barack Obama, Barney Frank, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd, the chairman of the House Banking Committee? Good public servants all.

Our President has presided over a money glut of historic proportions, one which if allowed to run to its conclusion will cost the taxpayers of this country FOUR POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS by 2016. This is in addition to the 5.1 trillion Bush and Obama are already responsible for.
Now he wishes to speak of fiscal responsibility and will seek to find blame everywhere but where it belongs. During the Bush years we saw gains of THREE POINT SEVEN MILLION new jobs. Not as impressive as the Clinton years and the hysterical growth prior to the .com bubble burst, which left George Bush with a recession of his own to deal with, a fact that is conveniently discarded by the tame Democrat left-leaning press and most politicians, but still solid substantial job growth.

Now we come to Obama and the great GREEN job revolution that ain’t. Better than 15.3 million jobs lost to the recession, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The pathetically few jobs he can credit himself with are mostly government and / or temporary. Once again, GOVERNMENT PRODUCES NOTHING.

The American people know about job growth. They know where jobs come from and they also know that runaway regulation and massive tax increases are not going to create those jobs. Obama is putting out feelers for a SECOND stimulus to ‘jump start’ job growth. That seems to be the entire liberal philosophy… not accounting or taking responsibility for failed policy but taking refuge behind inanity such as “it needed more funding to do it right”, or “it needed more time”, which amounts to the same thing.

This is a mantra we’ve heard from the left consistently on one public policy issue after another for a hundred years. The definition of insanity is doing something with negative results and going back and doing it again and again expecting a different outcome.
President Obama, we await your little extravaganza with bated breath, while we observe your cronies scrambling for whatever political cover they can find.

All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men… May Not Be Enough.

January 17, 2010

The Anointed One’s panic button must certainly have been pushed to stir him from the urgency of crafting more illegal deals in his ILLEGAL attempted takeover of 16% of our total economy, taking ownership of our bodies and way of life as well.

It remains to be seen how close they really are to agreement. It also remains to be seen how many of their House votes will hold in the final analysis, given the amount of pressure being placed on Democrat and ‘moderate’ Republican RINOs by an enraged and daily-growing number of voters in their districts, and a constant barrage of negative feedback from Conservatives and Independents around the country.

The note of desperation could not be kept from reports coming from DeMarxist house organs such as The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and The New York Times, as they changed tracks and began to trumpet the list of DeMaoist heavies called upon to come forth and do battle with the upstart, but highly effective and well-liked, Scott Brown in the Massachusetts US Senate special election to determine who will hold the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

All of the administration’s sleaze mongers (those that could be spared from digging into Sarah Palin’s family) are desperately trying to find a way to destroy Scott Brown before the ballots can be counted. In the event of a Brown victory they will most surely attempt to steal the election, a la Barney Frank’s theft of his opponent’s victory through corrupt state election officials, operatives and liberal justices beholden to the left. It would behoove the Republicans to CAREFULLY monitor each and every polling place in the absolute certainty of the Maobamists pulling in the ACORN/SEIU and other Union thugocrats, to be prepared to stand up to them and for ONCE not get stepped all over. Conservative and Independent Tea Party Patriots would be perfect for this type of duty, as many of them have already been confronted by, and NOT intimidated by, the rent-a-mob goon squads.

Michelle, a disillusioned SEIU member.

It tickled the hell out of me to see a sign-wielding SEIU ‘protester’ in Massachusetts, who it turns out was an unemployed SEIU member, telling a television reporter that he was only there to collect the $50.00 being paid out by the union for the event. He further stated that he didn’t vote for Obama. This was a guy that was well aware what his union was doing. Don’t forget that SEIU and Andy Stern dropped a cool $680,000 on anti-Brown negative television ads. Hey, Andy! Ask for a refund. It didn’t work.

As we go into the final days of the campaign the DeMarxists are pulling out all the stops to try and salvage Martha Coakley. SHE CAN BE BEATEN!! Scott has been running consistently ahead in the polls in this liberal stronghold. No wonder the Enlightened One’s handlers are willing to throw away whatever capital he has left. THEY ARE DESPERATE.
Go online and give Scott whatever support you can – you don’t have to live in Massachusetts to actively help. Contact his campaign at

While the nation is rightly focused on this surprising thrust into the rotten heart of the liberal beast, don’t forget for a moment that we have major battles being fought on other fronts.
The DeMarxists have THIRTY SEVEN DISTRICTS that are in serious trouble from really aroused and ANGRY constituents who are definitely at risk of losing their jobs, and not nearly all of them are going to be willing to trust to the blandishments of cushy jobs being offered by Maobama, should they fall on their swords for him in vain. What? Not trust OBAMA? For shame.

Continue your efforts to call, fax, email, snail mail and visit your representatives’ offices. Make it so hot for them they’ll be afraid to show up. Don’t pay attention to the lies and invented stories of the LAME STREAM FRINGE MEDIA. It should be apparent to all and sundry by now that they have lied themselves into inconsequence.

Minus 85,000 Jobs – This Is An Improvement?!

January 9, 2010

So we get the info babe on ABC (radio) NEWS broadcasting that ONLY EIGHTY FIVE THOUSAND jobs were lost last month. “The good news is that the recession has turned the corner”.
WHAT?? WHAT!! Geez, give me some of what she’s smoking! How convoluted does your thinking and your grasp of reality have to be to spin that figure into something positive?

The Labor Department today revealed the really sad and frightening truth without intending to. Since His Emptiness Barack the First’s February stimulus, in the amount of THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY BILLION DOLLARS of your money, THREE POINT TWO MILLION PEOPLE are no longer in the workforce. That’s the bottom line figure. Three point two million jobs, in the face of billions and billions of precious national wealth taken and misapplied in a thousand different ways, sending the money into the hands of all the WRONG people for all the wrong reasons.

In the meantime, the BARACK HUSSEIN regime’s assault on the American people and the economic engine that actually drives job growth in this country, SMALL BUSINESS goes on unabated.
It’s SO bad out there that 661,000 people stopped looking for employment in December, even as Obama was trumpeting that his administration had “created 4000 jobs”. Umm, let me guess Obama… GOVERNMENT jobs, right?

I’ve heard Rush Limbaugh postulate that Obama’s real agenda is to utterly destroy this country’s economy in order to better facilitate the imposition of an extreme leftist socialist agenda as visualized by him. I’ve heard several GOP leaders state their fears in the same vein. Then Newt Gingrich just recently said much the same thing in a different way. This has been something I had under my hat but was unwilling to unload on Obama, even given my undisguised dislike for him. Accusing him of out-and-out counter revolution, against the revolution that formed this greatest of all experiments into the freedom of man, property, thought and religion, would be tantamount to accusing him of blatant treason against the people and the Constitution of the United States of America.
Frankly, in view of the cumulative evidence I’m less certain than ever that this man has the interests of the people and this country at heart.

Once again we have the issue: We are a people of laws and we seek redress through legal ballot – yet even now as I write, the ultra-sleazy Barney Frank is trying to put forth an automatic voter registration act that would guarantee the registration of potentially millions of illegal and illegitimate voters. Stealing the votes of honest taxpaying citizens.
