America Held Hostage- the Obama Files...

America Held Hostage- the Obama Files...

With a hattip to Rush ( His idea during the Clinton plague upon America ) I am starting a file on “The One,” mostly starting from the election date.

Older stuff- links, quotes, quips, and sometimes pointed graphics can be found by scrolling back from these two posts:

-Hillary Clinton- archives, comments, and opposition research--

-Sarah Palin- links, from the beginning--

There is some good material in those posts that raises a lot of uncomfortable questions that everyone ought to be asking, and probably will once the “new” wears off, and we are stuck with four ( more likely eight, since 95% of the news & entertainment media are in his pocket ) years of a typical corrupt Chicago Political Machine Politician trying to jerk the whole country in one direction and then the next.

You've all heard the saying,

”People get the kind of government they want...
...and deserve?”

Well, America, you are about to “get it, good & hard...”

Don't say you weren't warned- we tried to tell you...

We did everything we could, and our state went for the Old Guy & the Naughty Librarian, but too many other voters were made stupid by the TV and public schools for it to matter.

We're in a Hell of a mess, and the worst thing is, "we"- the collective we, not you & I-- got us here.

Is Obama really the Abyss...

staring back at us?

I like to make points with humorous graphics- this one sums it up as well as any:


Then, in a nutshell, "everything I see going bad with all this hopi- changi- stuff The One is peddling-- forced labor, censorship, spin, and pure mean-spirited rudness:

Email of the day

Atlas readers rock! I am blown away by the overwhelming response to this post  (and this one) to get involved to take back our country from the Soros, socialists, and the self proclaimed messiah - oy. More than one email brought a tear to my eye but I wanted to share this one with you.

If this best represents who we are, what we want and where we are going, there is no way we can lose. Greatness is in the house. I am proud to count you as my friends. Prouder still to stand with you and fight this great fight.

I want to lead a county.

I was born in Cuba, and know the language of Communism, Obama speaks it well.  My grandfather's family had to flee Lebanon because of the Muslims to Cuba. We fled Cuba because of Castro.

This is the best country in the whole wide world.  I was a child when I left Cuba with the clothe on my back, we left my parent's sister and I, left behind everything. 

America is Worth fighting for and Freedom is worth defending.  I do not want my children to grow up in oppression, nor do I wish exile upon them.

Please allow me to help, again, Id like to lead a county.

My name is Ingrid and Im in Miami, in Miami Dade County

May the Light always shine upon America,


UPDATE: In case there was any doubt as to what the victorious zombies have in mind. Check out this comment (left in the comment section) . Can you say rude awakening?

You people are pathetic!

Your racist fear mongering will not go unchallenged!  Soon we will shut down your hate spewing web sites.  We will confiscate your firearms.  In prison, you will get an education on the error of your ways.  We will take your children and raise them as our own and instill in them the values of social justice.  We will have a new American Republic of justice and order for all!

You time is almost up!  Prepare for the dung heap of history!

It sounds insane (which it is) but I believe the writer is quite serious.

"We will confiscate your firearms. In prison, you will get an education on the error of your ways. We will take your children and raise them as our own and instill in them the values of social justice".....

Heh heh heh....I am sure you are serious, but that is funny!

Values of social Mao? Stalin? Lenin? Ho-chi Min? Pol Pot? Which of these butchers of social justice did you have in mind?"

That's the number of civilians that have been murdered by their own governments in the 20th century alone.

Innocents Betrayed is a must see video produced by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms (scroll down to see links to view the Introduction to Innocents Betrayed)

Now consider Obama's 'civilian defense force' which he intends to fund and equip as well as our standing military coupled with his promise to revisit the second amendment (repeal concealed carry privilege) and then compound this injury with Ayers' inspired youth corps.

Learn from the Slicksters


Obamessiah has a new site up as President-elect soliciting ideas form the proletariat.
Let's hope it doesn't become the hub for the hate whitey and Jew boy Obamavomit that his last site was.

Surf the site. Take note. Keep your eye on the The Obama National Service Plan- the page is empty (how apropos) but that piques my interest.

President Obama To Bring Back Slavery

Just in case anyone think Mr. Obama is not serious about this, bear in mind that his new Chief of Staff wrote a book demanding this very thing: The Plan: Big Ideas for America: Rahm Emanuel, Bruce Reed: Books;sr=1-1

Don’t forget they want a Gestapo/KKK civilian force the size of the pentagon to keep everybody inline and things running smoothly.

“Suddenly, all mention of “required” has been disappeared. ”

SOME THOUGHTS ON OBAMA'S mandatory volunteerism plan. Plus, reader Nancy Anne Potts writes:

Looks like the site is true to it's title - it changes!

During the time when I was looking at the blog you linked to concerned mandatory community service the page saying "require community service" changed to goal for community service. The new wording is:

"..... Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free."

I found the the cached page on Google it has the original "required" wording.

Looks like they caught their "mistake". Now will the real plan please step forward -- goal or required. (Although the way government sets goals, they often wind up looking like requirements so maybe the two aren't all that different.)

Ugh! I see card check made the economy page too. He may be the president elect but I don't have to like his plans!

Not until the second term. Then that will be made mandatory, too . . . .

Meanwhile, Robert Bidinotto comments: "Anyone recall what the Soviets used to do to history books?" The Obama folks have a history of airbrushing.

IF YOU VOTED FOR MCCAIN, you're a racist. Just in case nobody had bothered to tell you.

Obama Mocks Nancy Reagan in 1st Press Conference

It's  classless to mock a frail, elderly woman. (Note he was not kind in his revelation about his own "typical white person" grandmother, either.)

It's even worse to mock the widow of a great former president. Whatever you think of her, she deserves respect.

Especially classless was mocking Nancy Reagan on stage, before hundreds of reporters and television cameras, knowing the "joke" would be heard by millions. This wasn't some private remark that got picked up by a live mike.

H.R. 1022: Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2007

On Concerns Over Gun Control, Gun Sales Are Up

From "", the official transition website. Agenda tab and then select "urban policy" and go down to "Crime Control".

Address Gun Violence in Cities:
As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

There will be no one left to protect you
Barack Obama wants to institute a Civilian National Security Force, a vast militia not unlike Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, a personal army. He knows he would need such a force to protect him and to enforce his will on Americans. Americans will have not seen such arbitrary power used against them since the days of the Civil War when Lincoln put the Constitution in the bottom drawer of his desk and set about arresting anyone who opposed his policies...

VIDEO of Obama calling for a Secret Police Force: CIVILIAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE??

QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT civilian national security force.

“Just as powerful, just as strong, and just as well funded.” So the astute observer and deep thinker might reflect for a minute and be compelled to pose several questions (although the MSM won’t)...

Hmmmm... this one is very difficult. I was in the military, and we were taught we salute the uniform, not the man. So I respect the office, not the man. However, I am adopting a wait and see. If Obama governs as if he cares about America, even if we disagree, I can accept that. If Obama governs as I expect, like a Manchurian candidate who is bent on America’s deconstruction, that is when he will disqualify himself as being my president.

Liberal activists have long legislative wish list

National Organization for Women. "Since 1994, we've been losing over and over on legislation related to equality and fair treatment for women."
The gay-rights movement also campaigned vigorously for Obama.
NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America want Obama and Congress to move aggressively...
An array of other advocacy groups are stepping forward with their priorities for the new Congress.

Barack Obama: The Kingfish Reborn

Do Unto Obama As Liberals Did Unto Bush

Coal stocks plummet. Average 15%, many over 30% since Tuesday Gee, wonder why?

Kate, this is important and you should listen to it. It's about Obama's cult of personality and it is short.

From the blogs- and, always, read the Anchoress:

Bush, Obama, & Ghosts of Hate - UPDATED

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.” Lincoln’s Second Annual Message to Congress, December 1, 1862.

I would love nothing better than to be able to stop writing about “left” and “right.” I wish we had a better vocabulary to describe our distinctions, because these words are limiting and off-putting. I am determined, with the merciful conclusion of this abusively long election season, to work diligently at spending less time entertaining these distinctions. But for today, I think it is only fair to note a very important and glaring difference between “left and right” - and in so doing - consider how we may, finally, stop needing to indulge in what is tedious.

Victor Davis Hanson
says Let’s not imitate the left in our opposition. I agree.

It has been wonderful - really beyond wonderful - to consider how differently most of the right has reacted to their defeat than the left did in 2000 and 2004. In the two previous elections, the left responded by calling the other half of the country “stupid,” “morons,” and “Nazis” - Jane Smiley called them “unteachably ignorant” - they indulged in high drama, sniffling “apologies” to the globe, and denunciations of their fellow countrymen as “lying between repugnant and reptile in the dictionary.”

And oh, yeah (eyeroll) George W. Bush was not “their” president.

While you’ll see a few disgruntled extremists on the right say foolish, even ignorant things - and many throwing daggers at the sickening double-standards of the press - they’re not indulging in that sort of dehumanizing (and very adolescent) hate of their fellow countrymen or the president-elect. The reports they’re filing read very differently than those following the Bush wins. They read as grown-up, tolerant, open-minded discourses, not tantrums. There is a willingness to be hopeful, even in defeat.

And there is a determined respectfulness being offered to the winners - people who could not manage maturity and respectfulness in their defeat and who, sadly, are not always managing it in their victory, either.

I’m hopeful that the left - if it takes the time to actually condescend to notice how well it is being treated by the vanquished - might consider that self-indulgent defamation is the lesser way; that such a consideration may inspire introspection, and perhaps the smallest bit of regret for some of their appalling excesses toward the right and toward the American President who did not return hate in-kind.

I’m hopeful. I’m an optimist. I KNOW that the folks on the right - for all of their faults, and both sides certainly have faults - want America to be successful and strong and exceptional and free. I’m hopeful that hugely empowered left will discover that - beyond the feel-goodism of “free social programs” which are never free -they actually, really do want all of those things, too. That they’ll look back on the last 8 years and realize, finally, that their enemy was never George W. Bush. Bush, the guy who never dehumanized them, was only trying serve those corny ideals.

And then, miraculously, we may actually have unity.

Some similar thinking from my girl crush, Donna Brazile:

“The one mistake that we continue to make is that we label people. We say you’re conservatives, liberal, progressive, right wing, left wing. I think people just want to spend one day being Americans. They want to come together around a common purpose, common values.”

I wondered the other day if the catharsis of this election might open up “a vein of generosity” (or at least decency) from the left as concerns President Bush. I have not seen it yet, but I’m going to be optimistic and keep looking.

But maybe it’s enough just to see a little appreciation from the right, to start. Like this, for instance:

I link, therefore, I Err has a little mini-round-up of appreciation for George W. Bush. You’ll want to read it all.

From Alppuccino at Protein Wisdom:

At 10:40, President Bush will keep his streak alive by telling everyone how much he loves America. Just as he always has. And he’ll show everyone how much he loves America by preparing Obama as best he can for the next 4 years.

Read it all; it’s doubtful that Obama’s team will come into the White House finding O’s missing from their keyboards, any rude messages greeting them. And that is how it should be in America, a respectful transition.

Michael Gerson:

Many liberals refuse to concede Bush’s humanity, much less his achievements.

But that humanity is precisely what I will remember. I have seen President Bush show more loyalty than he has been given, more generosity than he has received. I have seen his buoyancy under the weight of malice and his forgiveness of faithless friends. Again and again, I have seen the natural tug of his pride swiftly overcome by a deeper decency — a decency that is privately engaging and publicly consequential.

[In 2005]…the White House senior staff overwhelmingly opposed a new initiative to fight malaria in Africa for reasons of cost and ideology…In the crucial policy meeting, one person supported it: the president of the United States, shutting off debate with a moral certitude that others have criticized. I saw how this moral framework led him to an immediate identification with the dying African child, the Chinese dissident, the Sudanese former slave, the Burmese women’s advocate. It is one reason I will never be cynical about government — or about President Bush.

Jeffery Scott Shapiro:

[The treatment of President Bush] from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have…Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty — a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

Until we fix, within ourselves, our enthrallment with hate for others, simply because they hold differing views, we’ll never pull it together. In 2006 we watched a right-wing blogger be called less than human by a left-wing reader. We’ve seen President Bush being referred to as “the chimp” and “the monkey” by the wits who insisted that ideology trumped having a decent respect for another’s humanity. I wrote about that a little here:

Thus, George W. Bush is “Chimpy McHitler.” Hillary Clinton is “a pig in a pantsuit.” Barack Obama is “O-Bambi.” Cindy McCain, who has exhibited some courage and laudable compassion in her life, is reduced to a “pill-popping beer-frau,” and so forth. From there it is smooth sailing down an ever-descending river of hatred, until we are incapable of seeing anything good in the “other,” both because we have willfully hardened our hearts, and because our hate — especially when it is supported by a group of like minds — feels safe and inviolable.

With that in mind, you’ll want to read this excellent piece over at Conversion Diary, wherein Jenifer ponders pictures from a Nazi-era photo album and wonders, how such common-variety people managed to support and enable such profound evil.

One thing that stands out in all these examples is that the victims of the widespread evil were categorized as something less than human…not only that innocent people were killed or enslaved, but that their humanity was taken away by the societies around them…So here is the advice I would offer to my children, and to my children’s children:

Every decade or so, take a look around the society in which you live, and ask yourself if there is any group of human beings who are seen as something less than human. A big tipoff is if dehumanizing words — terms other than “man,” “woman,” “child,” “baby,” or “person” — are used to describe any category of people.

And if you ever see that going on, you might be in the midst of something gravely evil.

Dehumanizing people begins with baby-steps like name-calling, or the sort of intellectual dishonesty that delights in deliberately twisting the meaning of others in negative and misrepresentative ways. Those are the little gateways to the great evils that come once you’ve managed to thoroughly de-humanize others.

We’ve had 8 years - I’d say 12, really - of people demonizing and dehumanizing others, from both sides, and it is not getting us anyplace good. I believe that the response of most of the right to Obama’s victory is a step toward changing that. But the left has to do their part, too.

Pope Benedict XVI said, “those who hope live differently.” The election of Barack Obama was borne on this word, “Hope.”

If the people who voted for “hope” were sincere, then let them begin, today, to embrace it - and to live differently - without the kneejerk move to hate “the other side.” The right, responding levelly to their defeat, has offered the opening. Will the left take it?

UPDATE: Seems some will. Here is mostly accurate, and apprecited praise from a surprising quarter:

Would America have elected Barack Obama if white Americans had not gotten accustomed to seeing (in succession) two African-American Secretaries of State? I don’t think so. Before Bush, African-Americans were appointed to some good posts but not to our #1 foreign policy job. Two African Americans (one with a pretty odd first name) served as America’s face to the world. That eased Obama’s way. It is not Tiger Woods in whose footsteps Obama is walking — it’s Rice and Powell….Fact is, “W” never gave any evidence of holding racist attitudes…even just the slur the occasionally slips out of the mouth of even our most liberal leaders.

Same with Arabs and Muslims…Bush, after 9/11, never resorted to anti-Arab or Muslim stereotypes. He drew distinctions between terrorists and Arabs…Had he not done these things, Arabs and Muslims might have experienced not just hate crimes but pogroms.

Meanwhile, from Grand Rants:

Here is a man who is regularly compared to Hitler in casual conversation in Leftist circles high and low. His honor has been regularly impugned, his intelligence (or, as the press loves to put it, his “intellectual curiousity”) constantly demeaned, his verbal stumblings consistently mocked, and his accomplishments in office discounted or ignored. He is a man who kept his head down and did his job, despite the slings and arrows hurled at him by fortune made all the more outrageous by nearly the entire Democratic party.

I for one, would like to say thank you to Pres. Bush. For keeping us safe. For watching out for us. For persevering in spite of all the spite. I believe history will ultimately judge you as one of America’s best presidents, and I believe you deserve that judgement.

H/T to Opinionated Catholic, who writes:

The throwing under the bus of the President by even his friends and indeed the base has been shocking to me. Many groups will find out soon enough how they took Bush’s support and advocacy for them for granted, Catholics, especially.

Meanwhile, Jules Crittenden is beginning to enjoy Omerica, Quin Hillyer is saying America is over, kaput, finished, Evan Thomas suddenly finds Obama “slightly creepy” and when you refuse to release medical records, and the press doesn’t care…conjecture begins about your mental health.

Forty-Fourth President, Twelfth Imam

by Baron Bodissey

O-Man’s Fibonacci spiral haloThe election results were long expected, but now that the day has arrived it’s quite a letdown, anyway. Reading about the joy expressed by Hamas and Syria and Italy and Indonesia… contemplating Obama’s Secretary of State, or (God help us) Defense… Thinking about the USA becoming just like Sweden, only with a real army, and aircraft carriers, and nukes… First Lady Michelle…

It’s all too depressing.

So, as is my habit in such circumstances, instead of writing a post this evening or doing something else useful, I created yet another iconic image of The One. After looking around at some of his existing halos, I decided to make one myself. A man can’t have too many halos, right?

And then I pondered the phenomenon of halos appearing behind the heads of great national leaders, men who are born into modest Muslim circumstances, but in time become presidents of large countries that have nuclear weapons. It made me think of…
- - - - - - - - -
Mad Jad’s HaloMahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ol’ Mad Jad got his halo when he went to visit the UN a couple of years ago. It appeared behind his head while he was speaking. Not only that, his audience was held in such rapt attention by his words that they were unable to blink for thirty minutes. We know all this is true because he told us so.

I wonder how many other resemblances there are between him and Barack Hussein Obama.

Ahmadinejad sees himself as preparing the way for the Twelfth Imam, as a sort of satanic John the Baptist for the man who is prophesied to return and usher in the apocalypse preceding the establishment of the permanent reign of Islam over the entire world.

And Obama’s got a bigger halo.

Does that mean…? Nah — it couldn’t be… But still… It makes me wonder…

What if the One were also the Twelfth?

Note to the literal-minded: this post is for fun, not to be taken seriously. Given the circumstances, it’s the only fun I’m likely to have for quite a while.

Read further...

Saul Alinsky Takes the White House My wife just got an e-mail from the head of HR saying that the post-election Obama jokes have to stop, especially if there is any hint that it might be related to racism. No notice before the election. And it was OK to get anti-Bush e-mails for 8 years. Oh yeah, she works for a bank that is hoping for a piece of the bailout action...

FReepers: we need you now more than ever. Don't go!

I’m not leaving as long as the Good Lord’s willing and the Creeks don’t rise.

Have no fear- The One will halt the rising creeks, heal the planet, and make the French love us again ( Oh, gag me! )...

Well, I’m not going anywhere as long as I have a voice.

We may have to go back to Xerox machines and small presses distributing handbills, but I’ll be damned if I let my country slip in to “That Good Night” without a fight.

I’m the one who dubbed Clinton “Little Big Fraud,” so I’ll have to work on something for The One.

We may have to set up a “Free Republic in Exile” like Degaulle did when the Nazis overran France, but we’ll manage.

It does distress me that so many people were suckered by a typical Chicago Machine empty suit, but he had 95% of both the press and entertainment arms of The Media Hive trying to get him elected, and covering up for him, so it’s not surprising.

Carry on.

Some realistic things to expect early in the Obama Administration

I work in Chicago. I deal with a great many attorneys in my job, many of whom are staunch Dims and breathless Obambi supporters; some were even active in his campaign. More than one told me that at or near the top of Obambi’s agenda is a new Hate Crimes bill, with a wide expansion of what will be considered a hate crime

Didn't you notice that Obama is a conservative?  "Obama is, in his own words, something of a Rorschach test. In his latest book, The Audacity of Hope, he writes, 'I am new enough on the national political scene that I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.' "

Being an American is much more than being "cool"

Obama Bought The Presidency

Another Painful Lesson For The GOP

That’s what happens when you run a true left wing liberal against a liberal lite. The real one wins.

Remember, that's my theory why we went down to defeat in 2006...

I said something along the lines of,

"I've read all the theories why we lost so badly, and I still say this: Once elected, the Republicans taxed & spent & regulated like a bunch of Democrats- no wonder the voters decided to try The Real Thing!"



Here it comes, you bitter clingers:

Is There Nothing That Obama Can't Do?

with "everything you need to be aware of."
But I'm just burned, and bummed out. The elections. The sellout of Israel. The Moonbats. The Stupid Party. The Evil Party.

Then again, after yesterday there's this:

”Zimbabwe On The Potomac...”

You know there were warning signs...

I kept telling people when Bill Clinton slithered in to office, and clung to it, despite all the scandals, and Impeachment itself-- “He's just a symptom. Like a fever is of a disease- there's something wrong with America.”

Like Popular Culture- look at the magazines-- I call it “thugs & jugs,” or “which Pop Tart is popping out whose baby this week?”

Or Katrina- ever seen so many people milling around with their hands out, when they should have been helping themselves?

We did it to ourselves, and The New, Improved Black Jesus is merely a symptom.

All civilizations have a shelf life- once enough citizens figure out that by electing the “right” representatives, they can use the power of the government to pick the pockets of others,'s all over, except for the details.

Well, we're in the “details,” now.

Meanwhile, I have to figure out what Miss Emily and I do with what's left of our lives, and bush hog her Mom's old place in the country, because City Life isn't going to be worth living from here on out.

I'll catch you all later...

US-Mexico groups urges new US assault weapons ban

Fully automatic weapons like machine guns are not "easily purchased in the United States." You can't buy one made after 1986. You have to get a special permit from the BATFE that costs two or three hundred dollars to buy them legally. Many states ban them outright.

Semiautomatic "assault rifles," one shot per trigger pull, are just old news. The ban that expired banned semiautomatic "assault rifles" just for cosmetic features, e.g. folding stocks, pistol grips, bayonet lugs, flash suppressors, etc.

The Anchoress-
you ought to read her:
Wednesday, October 14, 2009, 2:56 PM

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as “A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers”:

I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn’t like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.

But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an entire cable news network!

Again, he had said earlier that he [criticized Bush for the notion] that by not talking to people we are somehow punishing them. Now he is talking to the whole world, apologizing for the United States, but he won’t talk to Fox News!

I had asked in my October email, “Will he be this vindictive towards all Americans who don’t agree with him or his administration?” Well, he is and even more than I expected.

But I guess this gives you some degree of bragging rights. By writing your article, you can honestly tell your readers that “You read it here first on The Anchoress” about how Obama would later act towards those who don’t agree with him.”

Well, bragging rights are slim when I can’t even remember posting on it -the hazard of posting so much- but I must say, a chill ran through me when I read the italicized line above, and again when I heard this pronouncement from a White House podium.

Obama’s behavior is not presidential. Criticize Bush all you like, and yeah, he made it clear he didn’t much like the way the press covered him, but he talked to all of those news outlets who clearly hated him – hell, he talked to CBS even after the fake TANG episode with Dan Rather and Mary Mapes (whose fakery was recently exposed as even more egregious than we already knew). Bush spoke to Newsweek even after Evan Thomas promised to deliver “an additional ten to 15 percentage points to John Kerry” (which they managed, btw).

Obama, thin-skinned, more than a little cowardly and a bit petty, prefers to “punish” those members of the press who do not lay prostrate before him. And the mainstream press, because it is over-populated with spiteful perpetual adolescents who have become enthralled to the weird duality of hate/love that informs their politics, do not close ranks and say, “no, Mr. President, if you don’t talk to one of us, you don’t get your daily exposure from any of us.”

With one glaring exception, Obama’s media sycophants are so far up inside Obama, they cannot see their own futures. But then, they have voluntarily dissolved themselves, and tossed aside the public trust, in order to serve one man over the nation.

My issues, as always, are less about President Obama, than about the formerly free American press.

Longtime readers know that while I think Limbaugh is a genius at what he does I am not a regular listener -I am not a regular listener of anyone, anymore, on either the right or the left- but when I saw this yesterday, it actually turned my stomach:

Until about 2006, when he appears to have lost his mind, his humanity and his decency, I was a pretty regular viewer of “Hardball with Chris Matthews.” This crosses a terrible line. And I’m rather appalled by the silence of his two talking head guests. You’d think one of them would say, “that’s the line, dude; where is your decency?”

I mean, left or right, there should be some things -like wishing people will die, or calling them “meat”- that are simply not said, without someone there saying, “wait…walk that back, you’ve gone too far.” I’m a nobody, and my thoughts don’t matter, but I did tweet, when the Olympics went to Rio, that Limbaugh was “overdoing” his glee. When Ann Coulter (admittedly, I’m not a fan) has overdone it, I’ve said so, and taken some abuse for it, too. If anyone on the left has suggested Matthews needs to walk that back, yet, I have not seen it. If anyone – in particularly any good feminist- has suggested that Keith Olbermann, a good “liberal” should reconsider calling a woman “a mashed bag of meat with lipstick”, because he doesn’t like her, well, I haven’t heard about that, either.

Then, this morning I saw this hit piece on Limbaugh from Rick Sanchez, who appears content to call himself a journalist while spouting so-called (and repellent) Limbaugh “quotes” for which he offers neither audio nor textual proof.

It doesn’t matter, says Sanchez, and -apparently- CNN News, (recently declared a “real” news network by the Obama White House) that he has no proof, no record of Limbaugh uttering these foul words. The accusation is enough. An assertion is as good as the truth for Sanchez, and those working with him on their crusade to prevent a private citizen who has earned his wealth to be able to use it as he wishes.

The assertion is enough, and now it is “up to Limbaugh to prove he didn’t say it.”

Because, as we saw in Rathergate, professional journalists now want to be able to smear someone with any untruth they like, and demand that the victims of their slander “prove” a negative.

“Prove that you did not do what I said you did,” is not journalism. It is, frankly, the tactic of the schoolyard bully and the fascist. They are often one and the same. And they’ve learned that once a headline is “out there” retractions and corrections don’t much matter, to the narrative.

With a few professional exceptions, Jake Tapper springs immediately to mind, our mainstream media is as corrupt and dishonest as our congress. So, we’re in terrible trouble, if you haven’t yet figured that out.

As Mark Steyn notes, CNN can fact-check a comedy show, but not its own reporters.

I watch this attempt to keep Limbaugh from buying into a football team on the basis of words he did not say, and I think, if only he were Roman Polanski -they’d celebrate his interest in grown-up American athletes!

I am not going to post anymore, today. I have a cold and this took forever to write. As this month is both my birthday (yay!) and our wedding anniversary (Yayay!) my husband and I have decided that we’re taking some “time off” -he from meetings, incessant beepers and deadlines- me from reading and writing about the potential catastrophe and erosion of rights we’re looking at in our national future. I will schedule some random “Anchoress Reposts” to go up throughout the next few days, while I disappear.

The American Progressive Movement is racialist and racist at it’s core. They believe that Blacks and Hispanics are helpless victims who can’t succeed with without the help of Enlightened White Progressives. They have smeared Those on the Right that preach Individualism and self reliance as racists. In reality it is the American Left that is racist, just like their German Progressive Cousins were 70 years ago. As a Hispanic, I can testify that the most racist people I have met are White Progressives.

In a blatant example of Progressive Racism, a judge ordered the water turned off for Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This has crippled the farmers, many of whom are Hispanic and has caused loss of jobs and loss of Food productions. Former Democrat, turned Republican and comedian Paul Rodriguez is leading the protest against this. His family owns a farm in the San Joaquin Vally and they will be affected. He lobbied Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to no effect. Clearly this is done for Racial reasons. The Obama Administration would rather please White Progressive Environmentalists than help out Hispanic farmers.

Paul Rodriguez

Paul Rodriguez wants water – and he’s angry enough to get some

One wouldn’t immediately associate comedian and actor Paul Rodriguez with a serious issue such as water.  But, as Mark Twain said: “Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.”

Rodriguez is so concerned about water that he helped create the California Latino Water Coalition, led marches with several thousand people in recent weeks, and spoke Saturday night to a convention of the conservative California Republican Assembly in Bakersfield.  I addressed the convention goers about my U.S. Senate run against Barbara Boxer just before Rodriguez’ turn at the podium.

What has Rodriguez’ concerned to spark political action is the shutdown of water pumps in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.  These pumps move water from California’s wet north to the agricultural Central Valley and urban Southern California.   A judge’s ruling switched the pumps off over a controversial U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report that declared a fish, the delta smelt, threatened.  No one really knows if turning the pumps off will help the fish, but most can agree that California’s agricultural industry will take a big hit this year due to lack of water.

Rodriguez and his family own farmland in the Central Valley where, as the comedian said Saturday night, “We grow the sweetest oranges and sourest lemons.” But now, because of a judge’s ruling, the most fertile land on “this blue marble” will lie fallow.  People will be out of work.  Less food will be grown.  And farmer and farm worker alike will be hurt.

Rodriguez had notes at the podium but didn’t refer to them as he spoke for 40 minutes, presenting a potent alternating mix of passion, humor, and fact.  He recalled using his talent to help many prominent Democrats raise money only to have every one of them turn him a deaf ear when he asked them for assistance over the water issue.  “What are they afraid of,” he asked, “fish can’t vote.”

Read the rest.

Paul Rodriguez asks a very good question, “What are they afraid of?” He has discovered that the Progressive controlled Democratic party views Hispanics as their inferior vassals. When it comes to the interest of Hispanic farmers vs. White Environmentalist, the vassals must back down to their masters. This attitude caused Rodriguez to flip to the Republicans after seeing they don’t care about Hispanic farmers.

Rodriguez also has advise to the GOP in regards of Media and RINO calls of moving away from Social Conservatism.

And in contrast to much of the mainstream media’s habit of encouraging Republicans to moderate on social issues, he suggested that the Republican party’s conservative positions on issues like abortion and family values would be an advantage in attracting Hispanic voters. Rodriguez: “You need to attract more of me, or else you’d be an endangered species. … You know, we have so much in common. A lot of the values that this party espouses, we espouse. We believe strongly in family. We believe life is sacred.”

He is spot on, the GOP should not sell out to please the Media or Progressives. What the GOP should do is take advantage of this situation and have Paul Rodriguez as a spokesman to the Hispanic Community. He has seen Progressive Racism first hand and would be a great voice to show Latins, who the real racists are!

Conservatives/Libertarians must use the Race card Card against the Progressives. The achilles heel of the Left is their elitist Racist attitude and it should be exploited.

Below is a clip of Rodriguez on Hannity.

Update: song_and_dance_man makes a valid point.

Not only are the progressives racist, they are biased for taking into consideration the concerns of fish over their fellow human beings.
Now how exactly does one find what the fish really want? Their whole premise is flawed and the progressives use issues like these to promote their various whack job special interest groups as in this case the Environmental lobby.
These are the same people who save baby seals but have no problem with terminating the life of an unborn human.
They are totally reprobate and no better than animals that kill or eat their young.

Progressives hate Humans!

When you go that far in the hole, you might as well call it “gazillion,” because the figures are so astronomical as to be meaningless.

All it means is your dollar becomes devalued to the point of being worthless.

PS: Look at the U.S. unemployment rate in the chart below. As you can see, it is soaring. The true rate is now over 20% on its way to 25%. You see why these gold and stock market trades have turned me on like no others? They would have you believe this is a recovery... this is some sick sh@t!

Gag: Obama credited with making interracial marriage acceptable

October 15, 2009 01:53 PM by Michelle Malkin

Oh, spare me. Please:

There’s nothing more traditional in American politics than the wholesome family portrait: a beaming candidate, beaming spouse, reluctantly beaming teenagers.

But when Bill de Blasio, a candidate for public office in New York City this fall, put his family in his campaign mailings and TV ads, there was nothing routine about it. De Blasio’s wife of 15 years, Chirlane McCray, is black, his children are of mixed race and, even in one of America’s most liberal cities, no one could remember anything like it…

…With Barack Obama having rewritten the history of race relations in this country, de Blasio may be demolishing one of its last taboos, “For so long in American history, interracial couples went out of their way to keep their relationships out of the public eye that it’s remarkable to see them used in a campaign like this,” said Peggy Pascoe, a historian of interracial marriage at the University of Oregon, who referred to the campaign as “a post-Obama phenomenon.”

That’s a perception McCray said she shared. Obama, she said, “opened a door” and “made it easier for us to go there.”

Nowhere in the article is there even a mention of who over the last decades has made it difficult to “go there.”

No mention of how minority conservative women who marry outside their race are routinely attacked by liberals as traitors, sellouts, whores, ethnic trophy wives, and mail-order brides.

No mention of how Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was excoriated by black liberals for being married to wife Virginia, who happens to be white.

No mention of how anti-government racial preference activist Ward Connerly was also attacked for marrying a white woman.

Need a refresher? Here:

The fact that she is white has drawn criticism from some blacks who see the marriage as evidence that Clarence Thomas has rejected his roots…

…“If he is influenced by his wife, a white conservative who lobbied against comparable pay for women, he will be anti-women’s issues,” wrote USA Today columnist Barbara Reynolds in a July 5 piece. Reynolds, who is black, also is concerned by Thomas’s choice of a white wife.

“It may sound bigoted; well, this is a bigoted world and why can’t black people be allowed a little Archie Bunker mentality?” Reynolds said later. “Here’s a man who’s going to decide crucial issues for the country and he has already said no to blacks; he has already said if he can’t paint himself white he’ll think white and marry a white woman.”

Clarence Thomas advocates a colorblind society, and his marriage may well be an example of that philosophy. But others see a different symbolism.

“His marrying a white woman is a sign of his rejection of the black community,” said Russell Adams, chairman of Howard University’s department of Afro-American studies. “Great justices have had community roots that served as a basis for understanding the Constitution. Clarence’s lack of a sense of community makes his nomination troubling.”

And now, liberals want to give Barack Obama credit for breaking interracial marriage taboos?

What has Obama ever done — what has he ever said — to disavow the bigoted attacks by liberals against minority conservatives in public life who have endured vicious bile because they chose their partners based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin?

Anita Dunn: A corruptocrat flack and a Mao cheerleader

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 15, 2009 07:53 PM

President Obama with Anita Dunn, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and Robert Gibbs (via White House Flickr stream)

Earlier this week, I spotlighted White House interim communications director and chief Fox-basher Anita Dunn’s career-long commitment to flacking for one of the Beltway’s most entrenched and crooked creatures, Tom Daschle.

I also noted that Dunn is married to Obama thug lawyer Robert Bauer, who tried valiantly to get the DOJ to prosecute conservative critics and punish TV stations for running an ad critical of Obama’s relationship with Weather Underground Bill Ayers.

Add to the mix this fun fact from Glenn Beck…Dunn is a Mao enthusiast. The White House says she is joking.

Doesn’t seem that way. And, um, who would joke about such a thing?


Hat tip: Ace and HA.


More: Squier, Knapp, and Dunn — Dunn’s p.r. firm — has clients including:

*SEIU-Local 1199
*Ceres-Far Left environmentalists “for sustainable prosperity”
*American Rights at Work-Big Labor outfit chaired by David Bonior

And more from reader Dan:

1. Her firm did the ads for Rod Blagojevich in Illinois in 2002 and 2006. In other words, they used lies to help elect the most corrupt governor in Illinois.

2. She or her partner Squier have widely been speculated to be one of the figures mentioned in Blagojevich indictment as a Washington consultant on a conference call mentioned by Patrick Fitzgerald.

3. Dunn’s husband was also the personal lawyer of Barack Obama related to the Blagojevich matter. Remember, he was questioned by the feds.

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans.

Barrack Obama

"It’s clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race," Ryan, 44, said in a statement. "What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign – the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play."

Obama Holds Fundraiser in San Francisco-- Massive Tea Party Breaks Out

Barack Obama flew into San Francisco last night for a fundraiser after spending 4 hours in New Orleans.

He didn't expect this--
Hundreds of tea party protesters greeted the president at the St. Francis Hotel.
The City Square has a report from San Francisco with several photos.

Even in San Francisco, Pres. Obama cannot escape protesters. He held a fundraiser at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco tonight (Thursday) and a crowd turned out across the street on Union Square to let him know what they thought.

Patterson Belknap Sports Group's Peter C Harvey and Obama at Columbia University in 1981-82

Barack Hussein Obama Jr was at Columbia for the 1981-82 and 1982-83 school years.

Peter C. Harvey is on the Litigation team of the Patterson Belknap Sports Group.

Peter C. Harvey was graduated from Columbia Law School in 1982, and served on Columbia Law School's Human Rights Law Review:


Recall that Obama was deeply involved with the nuclear freeze movement at Columbia, and that William Ayers was just a few blocks away, at the Bank Street College of Education:

Americans Decide Today - go Obama (this site hasn't been scrubbed yet)


A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rival, Senator McCain.

Even though Senator Obama leads in all polls, unlike in other countries, aside of winning the popular votes, a presidential candidate would have to win a minimum of 270 out of the 538 Electoral College votes to ascend to the throne.

Each state has a certain number of electors who elect the president depending on the size of the state.

And so far, Barrack Obama has a lead of 146 as against 101 for McCain in the Electoral College.

Here is a pdf transcript of Kenyan National Assembly on Nov 5, 2008, the day after Obama was elected. Over and over again there are references to Obama being a "son of the soil" of Kenya and a Kenyan. On page page 3275 there is this passage:


Ms. Odhiambo: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir. It is not on this issue. I stand on a point of order under Standing Order No.20 to seek leave for adjournment of the House to discuss the American presidential election results.


Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, the President-elect, Mr. Obama, is a son of the soil of this country.

Go Aggies!... HUNDREDS Protest Barack Obama at Texas A&M (Video)

Go Aggies!
Hundreds of people protested Barack Obama at Texas A&M University today.

My FOX FW reported:
Several hundred protesters have gathered at Texas A&M University to protest President Barack Obama's visit to the campus.

The protesters gathered Friday hours before Obama was to speak on the College Station campus at the invitation of former President George H.W. Bush. The protesters were allowed to gather at a park near the auditorium where Obama would speak but he would not be able to see them as a parking garage blocked the view from the park.

The president is set to speak at a Friday forum on community service.

Bush had said the event was not political. Nevertheless, the protesters gave speeches criticizing Obama's efforts to reform health care. Many of the protesters were from anti-tax Tea Party groups that bused in members from around the state.
I'm old enough to remember Truman, so I have to ask,

"How long did it take for protesters to start dogging LBJ or Nixon?"

Seems to me it didn't happen as fast as it's happening to Fearless Leader...

Governor Pawlenty & Ralph Reed Kick Off Western CPAC

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Ralph Reed Jr. and David Keene the chairman of the National CPAC and American Conservative Union as well as second vice president for the National Rifle Association will speak at this year’s conference.

Western CPAC kicked off tonight with a pool party and private meeting with Governor Pawlenty and California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.

Meg Whitman joined me and John Schulenburg the founder of "Infidels are Cool" blog for a photo.

Governor Pawlenty was the keynote speaker tonight. Pawlenty was elected in blue state Minnesota despite his conservative record. Liberals try to convince people that their gifts are free. They're not free. It's very expensive. They have started to unravel the underpinnings that made this country great.

In Minnesota the average state increase was 19% each year for decades. The past two years Pawlenty was able to reduce the budget in Minnesota for the first time in history.

As for Obama, Pawlenty urged the president, "As far as 'Cash for Clunkers' ...If we don't have the money then quit spending it... Allowing democrats to control your money is like having Michael Vick watch your dog for the weekend."

The government can't run the programs that they control right now so why would we want to give them another one?

Minnesota has the highest penetration of health savings accounts in the nation, around 9%. In Minnesota bus drivers could get lifetime medical benefits if they worked 15 years. Tim put the spotlight on this issue and turned it around. Today the new bus drivers in the state won't get this same perk after only fifteen years on the job. The bus driver's union folded because they couldn't stand the public scrutiny that was going on.

Ralph Reed, the gentleman from Georgia, spoke next.
As we go into next year and one of the biggest wins that we will see as a movement we have to understand how we got here. Don't be fooled about the blue dogs. The democratic leadership will be breaking arms to get their bills passed. We lost a presidential election in 2008 that was an embarrassment. We were out hustled on the ground. Barack Obama had 6 million volunteers. He had three times as many field offices as McCain. In Virginia he carried the state with 93 full time employees from the day he was nominated. The Republicans had only 23.

Barack Obama has woken conservatives up from their coma. We are already ahead of where we were one month before the 1994 election. This administration in a short period of time is taking us toward slavery faster than any other liberal administration in history. Hugo Chavez even said, "Comrade Obama. If Fidel and I are not careful we're going to end up on your right."

Today the federal government is guaranteeing 90% of all housing loans in the US. The president gave 20% Of GM to his union supporters. Now they want to take over the energy and health care segments of our country.

Health care defeat is not an option. If we let this thing pass we may never be able to repeal it. Nancy Pelosi needs the public plan. The Baucus Plan won't pass. Even though they called us Nazis for showing up and protesting we will not be silent. We are not going away until this plan is stopped. We have to get involved now.

Three Keys to Winning Back the Majority.
1- Return to the principles of Faith and Freedom. We need people who can articulate this.
2- We need candidates who can stand on those principles and run on those principles. We need women and Hispanics to know that they are welcome and valued in this movement and we need to run hundreds of these candidates.
3- We need to build a massive grassroots movement second to none. Reed has started the Faith and Freedom Network. We're on offense and not just defense. The days we came to California and wrote it off are over. Run on who you are and what you believe.

As Ronald Reagan once said, "Our people look for a cause to believe in. It is time the GOP was painted not in "pale pastels" but in "bold colors."

President Obama To Cede America To A New World Government?

This is such a stunning claim I have been hesitating to post on it, until the actual language in a treaty President Obama is planning to sign in December did indicate the creation of a new world government meant to use the fig leaf of mythical global warming to take control of the world’s energy markets. The source of this claim is disturbingly credible.(snip)... the concern Monckton speaks to may well prove the single most important issue facing the American nation, bigger than health care, bigger than cap and trade, and worth every citizen’s focused attention.

Mao-Praising White House Official Dunn to Glenn Beck: "I Praised Mother Teresa, Too"

Earlier this week Glenn Beck reported on the Mao Tse-Tung-praising White House Communications Director Anita Dunn.
Dunn praised the mass murdering Mao as her favorite philosopher:

Today Dunn responded to Beck in an email to The New York Times:

In an e-mail message, Ms. Dunn said, “My source for the Mao quote was actually the late Lee Atwater, either in an article or bio I read after the 1988 election. Now that I’ve revealed this I hope I don’t get Keith Olbermann angry with me. Let it be noted that I also quoted Mother Teresa, but no one is accusing me of being a saint!”

The speech she gave was a high school commencement address. Ms. Dunn says that the line about Mao and Mother Teresa was intended to be ironic – neither was a political philosopher – and that she used it simply to illustrate a larger point about the importance of challenging the conventional wisdom.

It’s no surprise that Mr. Beck singled out Ms. Dunn. She has been on the forefront of White House pushback against Fox News.
Of course, Dunn's delayed response is ridiculous.
Her speech to high school students and their response showed she was serious about her praise for the Former mass-murdering Chinese communist dictator. Dunn went into some detail about why she so admired Mao but said next to nothing about Mother Teresa.

Source of Limbaugh Smears is Far Left Firm

American Thinker has an article today discussing the source of the Limbaugh smears.
This was originally posted Mark Steyn from a reader:

"The quotes were added by a user with the IP address of This address has been used mostly to make changes to the article about Rush, but also Karl Rove, Sean Hannity,.. James Dobson and Sara Palin from 2005 until earlier this year.

"While others have noted this in various forums, no one seems to have made the connection that this IP address is used as a gateway by the law firm Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP (see here, for example) that all users from that IP address come from the domain.)"
The law firm has a history of supporting several far left causes and donated big to the Obama campaign.

Plus-- Rush responded to the state-run media's smear machine today in the Wall Street Journal, via Instapundit:

Numerous sportswriters, CNN, MSNBC, among others, falsely attributed to me statements I had never made. Their sources, as best I can tell, were Wikipedia and each other. But the Wikipedia post was based on a fabrication printed in a book that also lacked any citation to an actual source.

I never said I supported slavery and I never praised James Earl Ray. How sick would that be? Just as sick as those who would use such outrageous slanders against me or anyone else who never even thought such things. Mr. Wilbon refuses to take responsibility for his poison pen, writing instead that he will take my word that I did not make these statements; others, like Rick Sanchez of CNN, essentially used the same sleight-of-hand.

President Obama mounted a frontal assault on the insurance industry on Saturday, accusing it of using “deceptive and dishonest ads” to derail his health care legislation and threatening to strip the industry of its longstanding exemption from federal antitrust laws. In unusually harsh terms, Mr. Obama cast insurance companies as obstacles to change interested only in preserving their own “profits and bonuses” and willing to “bend the truth or break it” to stop his drive to remake the nation’s health care system. The president used his weekly radio and Internet address to challenge industry assertions that legislation will drive up premiums.

Shrill. Desperate. Bullying. But mostly desperate. Meanwhile, speaking of “deceptive and dishonest,” what about this?

EUGENE ROBINSON blasts Obama’s “Drive-By Compassion” in New Orleans. “President Obama’s brief display of drive-by compassion Thursday in New Orleans was, for me, by far the worst outing of his presidency thus far — and the biggest disappointment.”

CHANGE: Illinois jobless rate hits 10.5 percent in September.

GREAT TEA PARTIES, KID: Don’t get cocky. “Do the failures of the current administration represent a fantastic opportunity for the Republican party come 2010? Absolutely. Is it a done deal? Not until the votes are counted just over a year from now. And a year in the political arena is an eternity.” UPDATE: Bill Quick: “Here’s the nut of it: The GOP establishment sees their problem as being that they are out of power. People like me see the problem as being that they are out of power because they have turned their backs on the principles those who once voted for them believe in.”

The Maoist explains herself: egg, face at the White House. “As Fausta Wertz points out, Anita Dunn offered a variant of this exculpatory strategy when she claimed, in reaction to the tsunami of criticism her remarks occasioned, that she was only quoting Lee Atwater. That’s neither here nor there. What the left-wing excuse factory wants is for the American people to overlook the radicalism of the people populating Obama’s inner circle, of which Anita Dunn is a prominent member."

I mean the one big promise that he has every intention of fulfilling: the promise to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” That is what Obama and his lieutenants are about. They are egalitarians — not, perhaps, quite so radical as Chairman Mao, but (as the case of Anita Dunn shows) they have plenty of admiration for Mao’s goals. Obama himself has criticized the U.S. Constitution for being merely a “charter of negative liberties” that fails to promote “redistributive change.”

This is the point: last November, the American people thought they were electing a “post-partisan,” “post-racial” President who would work to restore unity and self-confidence to the country. They woke up on November 5, however, to find that they had elected someone who was deeply ambivalent about America, who distrusted its founding principles of limited government, individual liberty, and local responsibility. Like his radical friends — Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Anita Dunn — Barack Obama wishes to transform the United States according to a model whose basic shape was supplied by the utopian schemes of the 1960s. That’s why Anita Dunn said that Mao was one of the thinkers she most often turned to for wisdom about big-think political problems.

Consider the videos we all saw a week or so ago from Detroit Michigan, where thousands of “homeless” people were lined up to get their “Obama Money”.

Unemployment in Detroit is at least 28%, industry has been all but destroyed in the State by big Labor and Democrats, but those people in Detroit were still celebrating the election of Obama. What will happen when unemployment hits 48% in a few months? When the food riots start these people will all still be blaming George Bush for it and praying to Obama for salvation while their close friends and neighbors slaughter one another.

And that’s just Detroit. Imagine what LA will be like under similar conditions.

The Greatest Depression Is Coming

ALERT: Major Distortion of Financial Crisis About to be Launched

Speaking of Citibank, just got notification that they were raising my rate from 9.99% to 29.99%!!!! Been with them for over 5 years, never had a late or missed payment, always pay 3 or 4 times the minimum. But if I'm good and continue to never miss a payment and pay at least the minimum due, they'll give me a break and credit me 10% interest back every month.
Here is what you do.

You call and tell them you do NOT accept the changes and they are by law required to keep your interest rate at what is was (9.99%). This process will automatically cancel your card (so you won't be able to put additional charges on it) BUT you will not have to pay the 29.99% interest rate, and can pay out your current balance the same as before until it is paid off.

Why Defend Rush?

—Dave In Texas

Dr. Zero over at HA, great piece on the hit job inflicted on Limbaugh by race-baiters, charlatans and hacks. He makes several excellent points, one that resonates with me: unfair is unfair, whether it's unfair to a wealthy man, or a poor man.

I'm swiping a long paragraph, but go read it.

Limbaugh’s accusers want him burned at the stake for the crime of effective conservatism, not the racism they were so eager to lie about last week. The American public should think long and hard about which side of this ideological struggle should be on trial. Rush Limbaugh’s ideas did not produce a titanic deficit, double-digit unemployment, and global adversaries who can barely stop laughing at our President long enough to pretend they respect him. His ideas did not put disciples of Saul Alinsky, Chairman Mao, and Alex Jones in positions of power. His words are not deployed to conceal hundreds of billions in stolen “stimulus” money, thousand-page Mad Lib bills riddled with blank paragraphs, and massive offenses against individual liberty. His EIB Network endorses $1500 Sleep Number beds, not “saved or created” jobs costing half a million bucks apiece. Unlike the “Hope and Change” Administration, he doesn’t spend his three hours on the radio each weekday listing all the things you will no longer be allowed to do. He is the champion of ideas so powerful that his enemies fear the merest taste of them.

Something that cuts to the core of most Americans is our strong sense of fairness. We conservatives suffer a lot at times because of it, our unwillingness to dive down into the truly nasty and vicious tactics used by our opponents. We have a strong sense of the rightness of fair play. It's the kind of thing that makes us shrug when a player on our team commits an obvious foul on the field, we shrug and say "yeah, he was holding", or "no, his knee was down". We just do that because we know in our hearts it's right.

We play by the rules.

I don't think that's a bad thing at all, I rather think it's a value that's worth holding and expressing, even when it makes us willing to "suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune". Our willingness to do that makes us better people.

It wasn't just an attack on Rush. It was an attack on me, and most of you. I agree with Dr. Zero, it's worth defending.

Lord Monckton’s warning to America

October 19, 2009 12:05 AM by Michelle Malkin

“What is the truth?”

Lord Christopher Monckton, former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, spoke at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN last week on the UN Climate Change treaty scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009. He was hosted by the Minnesota Free Market Institute.

Minnesota Majority posted the video of his speech, entitled “Is Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty?” He wouldn’t be the first (see here and here).


Excerpt from the speech:

Here is why the truth matters. It was all very well for jesting Pilate to ask that question and then not to tarry for an answer. But that question that he asked, “what is the truth?” is the question which underlies every question and in the end it is the only question that really matters. When you ask that question what you are really asking is “what is the truth about the matter?” And we are now going to see why it matters morally, socially, and politically, as well as economically and scientifically. That the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth should inform public policy on this question.

Follow along with Lord Monckton’s slides here (PDF).


Going to Cuba to learn about hurricane evacuation? Hey Nagin what about the couple of hundren school buses that were sitting under water after katrina? What about the train service that was offered for FREE but not used? The people stuck in NO would have been better off if they had just walked out when George Bush first issued a warning.

Rusty Shackleford

On the face of it, that which is not being said is that Nagin never had any business being a political leader. He’s BHO-lite. All about the show, not about the “go”. Except in this case the “go” is go to Cuba, go to China...

By the way, do note Mr. Nagin’s penchant for vacationing in communist countries.

Please understand this and take it to heart. We will never back down on our aggressiveness towards socialists in the democrat or republican parties. We oppose an ideology of slavery, not just a party or a man. We want our freedom and liberty and will not cooperate with anyone who is less than 100% committed to that cause. No amount of discussion, theatrics, or name calling is going to change our direction or determination.

Our goal is not coexistence with socialists (liberal, marxists, progressives, etc). Our goal is to completely remove them from having any influence in our lives at all. That means the marxists that are voted into office and the idiots who vote for them. We WILL radicalize the right and we WILL gain our freedom from the marxists and the usurpations of the fedgov.

You know... I honestly think that most in the GOP are really not even aware that the revolution has started.

“What do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” — John Adams

Everything has changed... Its too late to go back, nor would we want to if it were possible.

Targeting Gun Shows

Gun shows are thought to be a key supplier of guns used in crimes

Hardware stores are thought to be a key supplier of tools used in crimes. No background check to buy a crowbar. Should we close them?

The key word here is CRIME. It's not the tool, it's the fool. People who want to kill and rob will find a way to do so.

Neighbor, I read some of this swill elsewhere, and I will just point out that without listeners and sponsors ( like Air America couldn't attract ) talk radio would wither.

Furthermore, there is no more egalitarian a a venue than talk radio. ( The Australians, with a neat turn of phrase, call it "talkback radio," and that describes it to a "tee.")

Love it?

Hate it?



All you have to do is pick up the phone and call 'em up.
