  • Yahoo Poll adds understanding Obama's re-election.

    11/20/2012 7:34:05 AM PST · by JewishRighter · 19 replies
    Yahoo ^ | 11.20.12 | Yahoo
    Still confused about how Obama won re-election? Check out this Yahoo POLL: Do you believe O.J. Simpson killed Nicole Brown Simpson? Yes, the evidence was convincing. 80% No, reasonable doubt remains. 20% 495,190 votes This means, on a rough statistical basis, that we have a solid 20% of the country out there dumber than a bag of hammers. I suspect its actually a larger number, but this shows the sheer depth of the stupidity (or anti-white racism) of a significant slice of the electorate. We're so screwed.

    American Thinker ^ | 11.12.12 | Reuel E. Topas
    The punditocracy, like the oracles of old, has spoken. Obama won because of various and sundry reasons, most of which can be debated and none of which is the single, sufficient cause. But one reason, or unreason, was a definite and perhaps the single most important factor: what became infamously known as "the 47%," who now suckle at the government teat.

    When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    There has been plenty of discussion of the presidential debates: moderators, topics, format and so on. While I was lurking on one such thread here on FR tonight, it occurred to me to look for information about how they are setting up the upcoming town hall debate on October 16 by going to the website of the Commission on Presidential Debates. While there, I came across a section regarding eligibility to participate in the debates and lo and behold, they require the participants to be Natural Born Citizens and the rest of the constitutional qualifications to run for President.

But this video http://www.youtube.com/user/Antisemitism2012 collects a unique group with subtitles and lays out how they combine hate, racism and propaganda to the point where the only logical conclusion is you cannot make peace with these people (especially if you happen to be Jewish).

    Where did Van Jones suddenly come from. Has anyone else noticed that Van Jones seems to have suddenly emerged in the media as an Obama campaign operative? He was relegated to relative obscurity when Glenn Beck outed him as an unrepentant Marxist agitator. He suddenly "resigned" his position as White House green energy czar and we didn't hear a whole lot from him. Yes, he was occasionally in the news. But in just the last week or so, he seems to be everywhere, all the time in the news media, commenting and being quoted on key presidential campaign issues. He...

    FReepers are brilliant. So I have an immodest proposal for you all that could work a major coup in knocking Obama off his horse in the upcoming rally at the Victory Column in Berlin. Imagine the scene: Thousands of people, probably a lot of young, mushheaded lefties, probably a lot of swooning. Obama is introduced. The crowd roars. He waves in appreciation, grinning broadly. After a respectable few moments of basking in the adulation, he motions for the crowd to settle down to hear his prophetic words. He begins to speak, warming to a theme of kumbaya fuzzy warm one...

    The great celebration that has been going on today in the media over the impending commencement of gay marriages in California has left me fearful for this beloved country. Every time I heard the news or clicked on main news items, there it was: "At five o'clock, Pacific time, the State of California will permit gay marriages, etc..." Each time I saw it or heard it was like the tolling of a bell, which reverberated deep in my heart setting off a slight quiver of fear. My fear is, in large part, based on my religious beliefs.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bill Belichick has been illegally taping opponents' defensive signals since he became the New England Patriots' coach in 2000, according to Sen. Arlen Specter, who said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told him that during a meeting Wednesday. "There was confirmation that there has been taping since 2000, when Coach Belichick took over," Specter said. Specter said Goodell gave him that information during the 1-hour, 40-minute meeting, which was requested by Specter so the commissioner could explain his reasons for destroying the Spygate tapes and notes.

    WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's decision to return thousands of dollars from a top fundraiser wanted as a fugitive in California illustrates the perils of the pell-mell rush for political money — your friends can be your worst enemies. Just ask Clinton and her rivals Barack Obama and John Edwards. All three have experience putting out brushfires caused by former rainmakers. Earlier this year, Clinton divested her political action committee, HillPac, of tainted contributions received from a Pakistani immigrant accused of plotting illegal donations. Obama donated to charity money he received in past campaigns from a Chicago developer caught...

The fighting took place in Baqouba, a Sunni insurgent stronghold that has seen a recent spike in violence largely blamed on militants who fled a three-month-old security crackdown in Baghdad. Five U.S. soldiers were killed in two separate attacks in Iraq, the military announced on Friday. An explosion near a military...

Look at the photo and read the caption which brags first about the diversity of his staff. http://mikenifongda.com/staff.php I think this says a lot about the man. He's running for election as DA. He's obviously a PCbot: everything is about race and showing his credentials as champion of women's rights, even rights to bring dubious charges.

    The way I'm seeing things, the political equation is that if you're for the illegals (with whatever variety of amnesty/no enforcement plan), you supposedly pick up the illegal vote with a percentage of legal hispanics. At the same time, you lose some white/conservative/republican votes. Reverse policy, reverse the consequences. So if you're one of these congressional weathervanes trying to figure it out, you do some math and cast your vote. It seems to me that, at least at this point in our history, the percentages should favor the white/conservative/republican side. But that's true only if you're only looking at raw...
