  • Politico Faces Its Worst Fear and Ponders a 2016 Without Hillary

    I had thought that Mark Warner might jump in but he just voted for Keystone, so no environmental lobby money for him.

    Evan Bayh has none of the Obama taint on his resume, so he might make a run for it.

  • Emailgate Disqualifies Hillary Clinton For POTUS

    I don’t think the primary purpose of setting up her own e-mail was in order to hide criminal activity. Anything (else) against the law she would certainly not use e-mail to pursue.

    Certainly one of the reasons was to provide her lawyers with an argument to not turn over e-mails, but perhaps there was an added benefit.

    I think this particular ruse was also designed to obscure communications of a more personal nature.

    Not necessarily her relationship with Huma Abedin, although that’s possible. Sidney Blumenthal also was on the network. Among things she might want to hide is her real relationship with Bill, something she wouldn’t want the American people to know. As an article at Powerline.com pointed out, the hdr in the e-mail address stands for Hillary Diane Rodham.

    Even if only sub-consciously, Hillary had already begun, in 2009, to see herself as apart from Bill.

    She and Bill have both lived secret lives for a long time. Must be agonizing psychologically to have to live this way. It shouldn’t surprise then, that she would need a secret internet presence, if only partly for emotional reasons.

    In addition, could Hillary have been trying to hide things from Obama? After experiencing him during the Dem primary, could anyone fault her for that?

    The conference call is either a devious distraction or it is designed to be preemptive. Perhaps Obama knows it is possible for Bibi to reveal something very embarrassing to the administration?

    On the other hand, I think it is very possible we are going to be disappointed in Bibi, as in what he will not say.

  • Obama says he won’t be deterred by ‘one federal judge’ on immigration

    Obama’s problem here is that many, if not most of the underlings within Homeland Security and other agencies don’t like not deporting certain illegals, and they’re not on board with providing them legal job status.

    At this point in time, with the court injunction still in place, any agent of the Federal government who signs up an illegal for legal job status, IS GUILTY OF A CRIME.

    The judge also ruled that the states have standing in the matter, so the enforcement mechanism resides within the states that were party to the suit. I believe I’m right on this, and if so, governors should fire a shot over the bow by declaring openly that they will enforce the law.

    If a few minions are arrested, then things could start turning our way. Our focus needs to move away from how can we stop Obama, to how can we stop the actions by chilling the bureacracy attempting to carry out Obama’s edicts, IMHO.

  • The Saudi project, part two Oil is back over $60 a barrel. Is the market returning to normal?

    -They are not market makers. They are unable at the present time to be anything but a market taker.

    Thank you. Yes. This is what most do not understand. OPEC has not been an effective cartel for many years now. There is far more power ascribed to them than they actually possess.

    The outlook is bright for consumers, as opposed to the producers, worldwide, who will suffer in some way, but very little in my opinion, compared to how much world consumers, and whole economies, will benefit.

    OPEC is dead.

    Killed by private property laws in the US of A. Ironic that is, No? These wells in the US were licensed, on private property, and there was nothing the Obama administration could do about it.

    I believe the mistake lies in claiming this is a Saudi plan.

    Exactly!

    The Saudis reacted, in the only way they could, to the new market reality. With the rise in North American shale, extraction wasn't static, it was rising, so a decision to cut production would lose them a great deal of market share. They would have sold far less product, for a lower, or slightly higher price.

    Rock. Hard place.

    For many years now, the Saudis (and OPEC) have been ascribed far more power than they have actually had, to affect the market, IMHO.

    And this is the first year we see the impact of Obamacare on our taxes. A LOT of people are going to be slapped in the face by reality this year. It will change the political topography.

    I agree. I have friends who have also experienced the fact that the huge deductibles erase any good feeling they have about their Obamacare policies.

    One lady is paying only $21 per month for her policy, she is aware of the tax problem, but had to have minor surgery last week, and essentially had to pay for all of it.

    As time goes, by, I believe the high deductibles will be a source of even more animosity toward the ACA and those who bequeathed it to us. If I were a Democrat pol, I'd be voting with Republicans to eradicate this monstrous failure.

    This development, if true, is not insignificant.

    Elections do have consequences.

    This is an indication that Obama no longer carries the clout with the left side of both aisles, that he once did. Words are one thing, actions are another, and a break with Obama on something he had to have wanted badly, could be a harbinger of similar breaks moving forward, on important pieces of legislation.

    I believe the states' attorneys general, since the states have been declared by this judge to have standing.

    Prosecute or no, the states will not have to recognize the legalization of employment proffered to illegal residents, unless and until the injunction is lifted.

    If specific violations can be found, drag those actually implementing a denied process or procedure ( like handing out documents ) and jail those individuals for being in violation of the judge’s order (it’s contempt of court and you go directly to jail on the judge’s order). Do it over and over, working your way up the food chain......

    Exactly!

    Obama can ignore this if he wishes, but the onus is now on the minions. Legal jeopardy accrues to anyone who signs up an illegal for legal job status. Enforcement mechanism? The judge declared the states to have standing, the "mechanism" then, will reside with the states, and I cannot see them not enforcing with a degree of urgency.

    Yes, Obama will want to defy the ruling, but will those within the agencies risk prosecution? I don't think so, and that's why this is a bigger deal than it might seem.

    I realize this is only a temporary injunction, an appeal has already been filed I'm sure, but it goes to the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, largely composed of Reagan and HW Bush appointees.

    If this does produce a win for the good guys, then we will see how important it was in 2010 and 2014 that we won the governorships and state houses.

    To those of you who say that Obama will just ignore the ruling, I agree, but there’s just one problem with that. The judge has issued an injunction, so any individual within any agency that signs up an illegal for job status, is guilty of breaking the law and can be prosecuted. Legal jeopardy could even accrue to employers. Am I wrong on this?

    The onus is thus placed on the minions, no matter what Obama’s reaction is. He can defy all he wants, but would you risk jail time by ignoring a judge?

    I realize this is only a temporary injunction, so that the case merely moves forward, but the neat thing about this is that the STATES have trumped Obama’s edict, not the Republicans in Congress.

    Here we see how important it was to win the Governorships and the State Houses in 2014 and 2010. Isn’t this a win for the Tea parties?

    wayoverontheright to 2ndDivisionVet

    Perhaps the “non-deportation” portion of the Obama edict could be argued, but the same executive order created a new class of employment, clearly not part of “prioritizing”, and this is the crux of the judge’s ruling.

    So the executive has been trumped in a court of law, not by the legislative branch, but by the states. This is very important moving forward. It is only a temporary injunction, but the case moves forward, and meanwhile illegals are not accorded legal job status, only Congress should have the power to do this.

    The political importance of this is that a judge did it, a court, instead of the Republicans in Congress.

    Here is where we see how important it was to win the governorships and state houses in 2010 and 2014.

  • American Lie (The Day Big Media Died)

    wayoverontheright to Kaslin

    Liberalism has always been underpinned by lies, and the liberal media serve the purpose of propping up those lies for its consumers. Liberals crave what the liberal media offer up, it’s a matter of maintaining sanity, so don’t look for liberal media to “die”.

    Perhaps the media have gone from a mass market to a niche, but niche marketing is a successful business strategy.

    Credibility doesn’t enter into the equation. Relevance is what is important to the media, and they will have that as long as events which refute the viability of liberalism need to be explained away.

    I have a dear friend who came to this country from Holland in her late teens to go to university. There she met and later married a rather wealthy man, had three children, and divorced about 15 years ago.

    Post-divorce, she had ten years’ worth of a rather large alimony and child support package. She worked as a teacher in those years, and, knowing the money was going to soon stop, decided to become a lawyer. She graduated, passed the bar on the first test, and went to work as a child advocate. She is now around 50 years old.

    She has, since I’ve known her, espoused the liberal political line, and argues it respectfully when we talk politics. We for years have agreed to disagree.

    Her job as a child advocate however, thrust her into the underbelly of the American dependency culture.

    This experience is changing her profoundly, in a way that none of my arguments for conservatism ever managed to accomplish.

    She had to be hit over the head by the proverbial two-by-four, in order to change her views, but she’s definitely coming around.

    Years of reasoned argument from me and other conservatives in her circle of friend never made any headway, but having now seen the sheer destruction of a whole class of people by liberal welfare and legal policies, she is correctly identifying the culprit as misguided compassion.

    Perhaps those who say “you cannot argue with a liberal”, or that one cannot change their views with reason, are correct.

    Is it possible the results of liberal governance are now providing the seed of a catharsis for many liberals like my friend? One can only hope.

    It is not unusual for players in any market in which prices of raw materials are dropping precipitously for there to be a "bounce" like this. It happens when, in this case, refiners, distributors, and retailers overreact in the attempt to maintain market share. In other words, go too low on their pricing, and then find out later they have put themselves in a position that they'd be a bit better off with higher margins and less volume.

    This is not happening at all where I live, but the price at the pump hasn't gone down in recent days as rapidly as the price of crude has, so I think it's part of the same kind of adjustment that sometimes occurs in a market like this.

    I think I'm seeing signs that damage control is where they're headed. The NYT will never change, but the Washington Post has already begun a change in tone, from what I see. Leading leftist pundits have published not-so-glowing assessments of Obama, I believe they feel they must, in order to save the Donkey party.

    It's either him or them, and the reaction to this speech will tell us which the media have chosen.

    Now we have the lies that we know we’re going to hear. He has become tedious. And ubiquitous. Obama’s speeches were at one time the type to evoke yawns. They have become cringe-worthy, repulsive spectacles of verbal masturbation.

    I love to argue the Keystone issue with my liberal friends. (Both of them).

    Inevitably their argument will come down to the “environment”, as it must. The issue then becomes one of how Canadian crude will come to our refineries, by rail, or by pipeline. If the environment were the issue, then all Canadian crude must be stopped from coming across the border. I ask them to name the Democrat sponsored legislation that would achieve this end. They of course cannot name one.

    So the status quo is far worse for the environment than by agreeing to build the pipeline. Liberal hypocrisy exposed.

    I think the people instinctively know, unlike governments, that consequences must accrue to all Muslims, since we cannot possibly know who’s moderate and who isn’t. Words have failed. The people will place the burden where it belongs, on Muslims to reign in the Muslims causing the problems.

    It is clear the US government will do nothing. We’re getting a lesson on what doing nothing will bring.

    The Muzzies really screwed up on this one. Cartoonists are part of the media. Up to now, the media were the greatest supporters of the Islamists. Now they have been attacked. The media (or at least Cartoonists) will be like people who gave up smoking - they will lead the “anit” crusade. The tide may have finally turned against the Muzies in France and Europe.

    I think this may be a turning point too. But not so much because the media has been attacked, but because this is a significant emotional event, and not only for the French. The people seem to realize that their freedoms are under attack, and part of their frustration is that they know their governments aren't going to do anything. It's the people who must react.

    The gatherings last night of tens of thousands in countries throughout Europe indicate that at the very least a catharsis has occurred, whether action will follow is the question.

    What is a moderate Muslim? Can we afford to continue to attempt to make a distinction? Of course not. This is the conclusion the people have come to, it has become now a matter of the preservation of civilization.

    Many American citizens are reaching wits end with this particular attack, even though it's in France. Any attack on freedom of speech is an attack on us, and we are frustrated as can be. A tipping point this could be, most certainly for the French people, but perhaps the Western world in addition.

    When those on this forum say "nothing will happen", I can agree that effective government action probably won't happen. But there's nothing restraining we the people from taking measures that by necessity, now have to take on a retaliatory, punitive flavor.

    I trust the American people.

    We need to deal with the lexicon, specifically the word "Islamophobia", and how we're supposed to react when we hear this word.

    Why shouldn't we fear Islamists in our midst?

    When you are in an airport, and you see someone in Islamist garb, or for that matter, anyone who looks Arab, isn't it THEIR fault that certain thoughts enter our heads?

    "Islamophobia is completely justifiable, and if you're an innocent follower of Islam, then it is incumbent on YOU to limit the damage to yourself and your family, by not only speaking out, but getting in the streets to protest your own out of control co-religionists.

    The only answer is a hard put down of islam. This will happen, they are seriously overplaying their hand and believe nothing will ever happen.

    I agree, but I don't think any sort of effective measures will come from the French government.

    The French people need to respond, and in retaliatory fashion. I believe there are some there who just may have had enough, this is a significant emotional event for French citizens. There need to be consequences. Prediction: Mosques go boom in France.

  • Memories Of Houston, The Last Oil Plunge, And $10 Crude

    A lot of emphasis is being placed on the production sectors, while the benefits to the consumer are being ignored. So is the plunge in natural gas prices, and for the consumer, perhaps this is more important than cheaper gasoline.

    In my town we are now paying $1.81 per gallon, down approximately $1.40 per gallon from mere months ago. This is a savings of approximately $20 per fillup. This is a monumental benefit for the working poor, and not insignificant for the rest, not to mention businesses.

    Natural gas has plummeted 25% in the last few weeks. Everything we consume will be positively affected if nat gas stays where it is. Plastics, packaging, manufacturing in general and food processing in particular will benefit, as will the consumers of nearly all products and services.

    Another benefit is that I believe when people go to the pump, they instinctively know that this wasn’t a gift from the government. The benefactor here is of course, the “market”. So it’s a win from a psychological, and thus political standpoint, for those who oppose big government.

    We entered into an appeasement phase in American politics out of which emerged the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who to this very day are able to shake down the white establishment.

    Spot on observation.

    I realize that Sharpton is shaking down another corporation as we speak, but I sense a reversal of mood among key players going forward, that may just backfire on the Reverends.

    Whites are at the breaking point, and I know some blacks who see the problem clearly, that it does them no good to malign whitey in this way. One of the differences is that blacks and whites have now inter-married, inter-mingled in ways that were not prevalent in the sixties. There's one in every family, so to speak, and that goes both ways.

    Go to any restaurant, place of business, civic function, even some churches, and you will see a congenial mixture you didn't see back then. There has been a melding, certainly not complete, but a melding nonetheless.

    I think most blacks see this as a good thing, and that the Sharptons and Jacksons are attempting to take us all back to a place that no one really wants to go anymore. What we are witnessing is a minority, egged on by our President and others, but there's a silent majority there that will emerge that will not want to squander the gains that no one can deny. At least I hope there is, and if so, this will not bode well for the hucksters now exposed as the problem, and not the solution.

    Sorry, I want to see policies. I want to know what they're going to do, without platitudinous vagueness.

  • Why Obama could regret executive action

    01/01/2015 12:57:18 PM PST · 31 of 52
    wayoverontheright to HomerBohn

    I don’t think Obama will regret anything he’s done.

    But the Left in general, and the Democratic Party in particular, most certainly will, and not for the reason proffered in the article.

    History will write that America’s trek toward a less centralized form of government began during Obama’s tenure. At this point in time, it may seem that the monumental 2010 and 2014 mid-term Democrat party defeats really didn’t do much toward that end, but the congressional elections are just the most visible part of the story. Throughout this country, conservatives have managed to take advantage of the people’s ire by getting elected to school boards, municipal councils, state legislatures, and state governorships in historical fashion.

    All this needs to be seen as a defensive reaction to an over-reaching, over-bearing federal government. The shift in trajectory is hardly noticed at this point because it is from the bottom up, instead of top-down, which is how most revolutions in America have occurred throughout history.

    It sure sounded good when it was just on bumper stickers, but now that liberalism has been imposed, it’s been exposed. I know some liberals, and they are embarrassed. They don’t even want to talk about it. Keynesianism gone. Kinder-gentler foreign policy engagement-downright dangerous. And everybody knows it. Race relations? The mess points straight to liberalism.

    And the people will want no more of it. Not for a while.

    The structure is in place to transfer power from the Federal government to the states. And it will happen, because even the weak-kneed Republicans will have to give in to the people’s wishes. To what extent this will occur is anyone’s guess, and will depend a great deal on whether or not conservatism can sell itself as a viable governing philosophy. Big if that one. But the sale is made infinitely easier by the fact that the alternative product has already broken down.

    One thing for sure, liberalism has been severely wounded, the Democratic party is in serious jeopardy by virtue of Obama’s tenure.

    This is the silver-lining in the very dark cloud hanging over our country. Pain has a way of focusing the mind, and in Obama’s America, there’s been plenty of pain to go around.

  • Judge Napolitano: Impeach Obama for amnesty

    wayoverontheright to RC one

    What’s Napolitano smoking? Yes, a judge can perhaps tell the litigants that impeachment is a remedy, perhaps even a better remedy, but he or she must first rule on the merits of the case brought before the court.

    I think the states have a sound argument, and any sane judge would have to consider ruling in their favor. The Obama administration’s argument is that the executive has the right to “prioritize”. That’s their case. But laws have been clearly changed, clearly not enforced, so “prioritizing” is not a defense.

    The Legislative Branch has just as clearly been circumvented, the law as written has been changed and/or ignored. This means that the people’s rights, who duly elected the legislature, have been violated. This is disenfranchisement, which doesn’t seem to be part of the state’s case, but should be.

    It is important to note that neither Obama nor the Executive Branch is named in the suit. Only the functionaries who would have to carry out the Executive’s edicts are named. So, an injunction is a very real possibility, and legal jeopardy then, accrues to the functionaries. It is now demonstrated fact that Obama can defy a judge, but the minions, from heads of agencies on down, would opt to obey the judge, in my opinion. A serious blow to Obama this would be.

    The reason the left hates WalMart so much is because WalMart serves the poor better than government does. The consumer is always the “forgotten man” in the attacks on WalMart. The problem with their argument is simple, raise wages raise prices, and this harms the consumer, in this case the poorest of consumers.

  • 2014: The Year The Liberal Lies Died

    wayoverontheright to Kaslin

    The problem for liberalism is two-fold.

    As the author points out, one of the problems is that the lies that were told, from “shovel-ready” stimulus, to Obamacare, to racial fear-mongering, to foreign policy, etc., have indeed been exposed as lies. The other problem for the left is that the policies themselves have failed, something which the people feel and see in their everyday lives, no reporting necessary.

    Liberal lies have been exposed, but this only exposes the purveyors of liberalism. More importantly liberalism itself has been proven to be a disaster, in every way, for the people.

    Barack Obama and liberal policies have literally killed the Democratic Party, and for the reason the author states above, I don’t believe the suck-up media can save it.
