Street goons dictate municipal policy to weak and vacillating socialist mayors, literally afraid of their own shadows. Fannie and Freddie never stopped generating toxic mortgages. They’re 6 billion dollars in the hole this year… so far.
In Maobama’s Amerika, it is the middle class who are the real targets. Maobama knows, as does any totalitarian, that in order for their misshapen, discordant philosophy to prevail a vibrant middle class would have to be destroyed. All are grist for Maobama’s economic warfare against America.
The leftists’ grip on the country is tightening with every single overbearing, job-killing new regulation pumped out by the likes of the EPA… and there are thousands of new regulations threatening to destroy our entire energy sector, which will destroy what’s left of manufacturing in this country. Construction won’t be far behind… what’s left of it.
In Maobama’s Amerika, agents from the Department of Education, wearing SWAT gear, invade American citizens’ homes under arms… coercion under threat of deadly force… right out of Lenin. Or, maybe more appropriately, Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union.
We didn’t notice or complain as the agents of communism infiltrated every single level of our government. The infiltration of our university system by radical socialist/communist ‘professors’, who were neither the brightest nor the best, but for the most part were the unemployable dregs of the Vietnam and post-Vietnam era who escaped the real world into academia, has introduced entire generations of hardly well-educated, but extremely well-indoctrinated, graduates as teachers in our children’s classrooms. read more »
Herman Cain is modest to a fault. His unabashed love of his country and the founding principles, which have made this United States of America the shining beacon of hope and freedom all over the world, shows through every time he speaks.
Exploding liberal heads? You betcha!. Just the very thought that they have a rogue black who has escaped the clutches of big government paternalism is enough to send them scrambling for their Depends.
The entire concept of the Democrat plantation system, which is after all only the latest incarnation of Jim Crow and the ‘separate but equal’ doctrine instituted by Southern Democrats, had but one purpose. It was to undermine the laws that had been put into place to protect the country’s newest citizens.
The 14th Amendment to the Constitution was to ensure that freed slaves were integrated into mainstream America. The so-called Jim Crow laws, such as the Morrill Act of 1890, helped to solidify the ‘separate but equal’ concept of holding blacks off at arms length while subjecting them to systematic repression and injustice.
Historians, please note that it was in fact Republican determination and muscle that was instrumental in passing the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The Democrats were adamantly opposed.
It’s no secret that the Civil Rights Act was suborned and taken over by the Democrat Party under the leadership of then President Lyndon Baines Johnson. His ‘Great Society’ was only the harbinger of the welfare state that would be pushed on us by the current resident of the White House. read more »
We suffered a malfunction. The lights went out on our main site. At first I thought, okay, it must have been the article that Dee recently managed to slip by the editorial staff at the Daily Kos. My imagination summoned a legion of spittle-drooling, knuckle-dragging hackers in their mothers’ basements mounting an assault against our sites.
We had certainly stirred up an ants nest over there, as it was. There were some panties over there so twisted up it was cutting off their circulation. We had much the same thing happen a couple of times when the Huff ‘n Puff Post published a couple of our articles, probably because an editor published off a headline or a sub-head without reading the article. The results were hysterical. It was just as though we took a stick and stirred up a nest of Texas Fire Ants. Some of them actually actively looked for us for several months. Cute trick, since we publish from ‘somewhere’ in Wales.
So the lights went out and it was because of the bank’s apparent inability to post a payment on time. Gee, there it is, Dee… we’re victims. Victims of big banking. What a hoot. That’s exactly what the whole ‘progressive’ movement is all about. Taking victimization and attempting to codify it.
As genuinely sick and tired as I am of listening to the statist Lame Stream Press carry water for the left and its Marxist agenda, I can take solace from readers comments on the subject saying much the same things. They are (the statists) steadily losing ground and influence, and they know it. read more »
Or, depending on where you are on the conspiracy ladder, all is according to plan. So how’s that nation-building scheme workin’ now, Mr President? It’s apparent that wherever our young President dabbles in mid-east diplomacy, the crescent is in ascendancy.
It made me laugh listening to the academized boneheads of the administration vomiting forth platitudes of a ‘democratic Arab Spring’… a democratic Egypt… a democratic Libya. Kumbaya and other fairy tails.
Meanwhile, our intrepid Barack Hussein works diligently to ensure that our mission in Afghanistan fails and the Taliban take over. Starve our troops in Afghanistan of tactical support, as well as supply. Cripple them with rules of engagement just short of suicidal. The finest military in the world wasted… for what? A monument to Barack Obama’s cowardice? Or something more sinister?
Desperation move. Barack Obama, in a desperate move to pull his fragmented base together, has summarily declared that our remaining 25,000 troops in Iraq will be removed, leaving that country undefended. This is a very poor political decision fraught with peril. If we have to go back into Iraq, which is a pretty fair possibility, it will cost far more in American lives and treasure than had we simply stayed there as the strongly stabilizing influence we have been. read more »
I’ve been quite proud of the way our Republican House has behaved, for the most part… and disappointed in our leadership in equal proportion. In this political environment, here and now is the time… there is no tomorrow if we don’t deal with the reality of today. We simply do not have the luxury of fostering a weak leadership, whose first instinct on any issue is to compromise. We must have solid conservative leadership grounded in the fundamentals of the Constitution.
The establishment Republicans have all but allied themselves with the DeMarxists in their efforts to delegitimize the Patriot Movement. The attacks in the statist Lame Stream Press have been incessant, with the usual spiels starting with charges of racism and then running the full gamut of leftist bleatings… ‘We’re (the Tea Party) going to stuff granny in the dumpster, wheelchair and all’. ‘We’re against women and children, because we oppose the Department of Education and the teachers’ unions’.
Never before have the ultimate fruits of our Marxist-leaning public schools been put on display the way they have in these last weeks. It’s striking how much alike these Wall Street ‘occupiers’ are.
I, like most Americans who’ve taken time to listen to the choruses of unending diatribe coming from these people, notice that it’s remarkably the same screed coming from group to group, wherever these people congregate… if it can be called a message. It’s actually more of a melange of regurgitated Marxist claptrap. Right from the mouths of leftist agitators, college and university professors, even high school and grade school teachers. This is what our billions and billions of education dollars purchased.
These empty-headed, vacuous kids and not-so-kids are precisely the product the left has been after for sixty or more years. Want to see what happens when parents abrogate their responsibility to instill character? These are spoiled, for the most part privileged, brats from middle and upper-middle income groups. There are obviously others involved, aging hippies with their gray ponytails and Birkenstocks. Of course, there’s the odd admixture of dopers, dealers and anarchists as well.
Let us not forget that Barack Obama’s White House immediately jumped out to champion these ne’er-do-wells, seeking to perhaps bail some water from his sinking Titanic. Worse yet was the gaggle of DeMarxist freaks that trailed out behind him in the statist media. From Debbie (The Mouth) Wasserman Schultz to Michael (I’m filthy rich, a corporation in my own right, but I’m one of you) Moore… who it is said can clear a whole square by himself by simply walking upwind from it. read more »
So while you were California dreaming… that’s if you still had a California job, that’s if your company hasn’t had to pull up stakes and head for business-friendly territory out of the increasingly repressive governance of (Red) Jerry Brown and his equally (red) state legislature, better known, perhaps, as Ali Brownee and the sixty-seven banditos… the 43 Republicans in the legislature, for the most part, have been valiantly but largely ineffectively trying to slow the Marxist juggernaut, which with the aid and collusion of the state’s public service unions, whose collective unfunded liability to the state is in excess of 40 billion dollars, has them spending millions of dollars in an entitlement turf war of massive proportions, between the unions and the nutcase hard left that California has no lack of. Then you introduce and add up all of the minority and special privilege, er, interest groups which have always been the hallmark of the left.
Few states have felt the crippling reach of the statists more than California. You know, if you strip away the state and federal government’s figures and substitute them for actual statistics, the unemployment rate in this state is over 16%. And, as I’ve mentioned before, there are pockets of unemployment in this state approaching 40%. read more »
America’s descent into the hell that will be 2012 is upon us. Barack Hussein Obama has used up his entire bag of tricks. Actually, it’s the same trick cleverly, and not so cleverly, repackaged time and time again.
Barack Obama gave another campaign speech in the guise of a ‘press’ conference, during which he ran through the entire Marxist shopping list yet again. I heard it said that ‘he shifted abruptly to the left’. Um… no he didn’t. That would be making the assumption that he had moved from the right towards the left. Barack Hussein has never been near the center of American politics, much less the right. So we may then safely assume that Obama never does anything that is not ideologically hard left, as his performance has shown. MaoBama slogs forward, carrying the banner of communism.
That the country as a whole is adamantly rejecting Obama and his DeMarxists doesn’t seem to faze him or his party. Democrat lawmakers are running for whatever meager cover they can find, after discovering that Barack Obama’s shadow wasn’t big enough to hide behind. The light of truth has a tendency to illuminate dark places… places that these Marxist scum love to hide so that they can work their treason undetected.
Democrats are desperate, and rightly so. They have much to fear. The country is aroused as never before. The White House is in scorched-earth mode, with MaoBama and the DeMarxists sending out the word to the hard left to assail and occupy Wall Street. It’s a not altogether unexpected tactic… not if you’ve read ‘Rules for Radicals’. It’s Obama’s playbook. read more »
… You’ve gotta be looking up every time you see a moving shadow… looking nervously over your shoulder… searching for the drone that must be there but can’t be seen. If you’re a terrorist the odds are suddenly much higher that you’ll get introduced to your seventy two virgins much sooner. The roll call of the Al Qaeda leadership that has been taken out by our forces is impressive… and telling.
Regardless of how the lisping, drooling Lame Stream Media has denigrated the mission by insisting that when we chop off one tentacle, new leadership immediately fills the gap. It fits the left’s narrative nicely, but it’s far from the truth. You can only replace so many key leadership roles without the replacement pool getting thinner and less experienced, while at the same time the ‘fight’ has to be taken to the most awesome military machine ever seen on the face of this planet. Not a fun prospect. Especially when some bright young commander decides to suspend the more than onerous “Rules of Engagement”.
Even third and fourth level Al Qaeda operatives know that we can, and will, take them out at every opportunity. Whether by our combat patrolling, by special forces, or a half dozen other agencies dedicated to the destruction of Islamo-Fascist terrorism, of which our drones are only a part. read more »
In again, out again… the will-o’-the wisp of American politics is/is not harboring heretofore unthinkable aspirations for the presidency. Chris Christie is the elixir du jour of the northeast Rockefeller Republicans.
Why are these money rich establishment Republicans so anxious to lure Christie into running? Answer that question for yourselves and you’ll know everything you need to know about Governor Christie. Christie is not a Conservative, or anything even approaching a Conservative.
His anti-second amendment sympathies would and should do it for him with most freedom-loving Americans. By being as radical as he is against personal concealed carry of firearms, in one of the most crime-ridden states in the union, he is blatantly saying to the citizens of New Jersey “No! You can’t have the right to defend yourselves and your neighbors”.
Every state that has permitted personal concealed carry laws to be enacted has not only not seen a decrease in the use of firearms, but has in every case seen a marked decrease in violent crime. There’s an old saying that has a lot of truth in it… “An armed society is a polite society”.
Christie also has much to answer to Conservatives with respect to not joining with over one half of the States that are actively suing to repeal Obamacare. How does that trite colloquial saying go again? “If’n you’re not for us, you’re agin’ us”. read more »
