Happy New Year, America! What the
Obama Victory Really Means
Barack Obama is arguably the most corrupt American
president since Warren G. Harding. From Project Fast & Furious to
Benghazi, the president is alleged to have known nothing as events were
playing out, and even less after they finally came to light. The real
problem is that America may well be too far gone down the road toward
becoming a fading western capitalistic democracy - as so many European
nations already are - to care.
The Real Danger of the Obama Campaign
You know Barack Obama is crook and a failure
and unfit to be president, and I know Barack Obama is a crook and a failure
and unfit to be president, but do a majority of American voters know Barack
Obama is a crook and a failure and unfit to be president?" In other
words, the big risk in this election is thinking that a majority of Americans
see the presidential race as we conservatives see it, that they're as
disturbed by the tone and tactics of the Obama campaign as we are. But
if we take a closer look at what most Americans - liberal and conservative
- are seeing, it should be a wake-up call to us.
Among the most astonishing things that have happened
in the past few months is the dramatic change in political affiliation
among the citizens of so-called "swing states." Polling released
yesterday by the CBS/New York Times/Quinnipiac College triumvirate indicates
that based on the sample selected to participate in a recent Florida survey,
12 percent of Sunshine state voters have switched their political party
from Republican to Democrat . . . in only three months!
Oil and Natural Gas Are Renewable Resources?
President Barack Obama and his green energy confederates
are determined to push several ideas about the supply of oil on the planet
that bolster their attempts to destroy energy production that relies on
so-called "fossil fuels." If we accept the idea that oil is
produced by the conversion of organic matter - from plants to dinosaurs
- under extreme pressure, we must also accept the idea that there is a
limited supply of oil and that we've got to do everything we can to find
a replacement for fossil fuels before we run out. The evidence is mounting
that, not only do we have more than a century's worth of recoverable oil
in the United States alone (even if there is a limit to the earth's oil
supply), we actually have a limitless supply of "Texas tea"
because oil is in fact a renewable resource that is being constantly created
deep under the earth's surface.
Is Obama Intentionally Leaking
Classified Information In Order To Undermine U.S. National Security?
By now, we understand that Barack Obama, the
most political president in U.S. history, is going to "spike the
ball" regarding U.S. military and intelligence successes every chance
he gets. But given his reckless and irresponsible record of making classified
information public, we have to wonder if his real purpose is in fact much
more subversive than gaining a political edge. We have to ask if Barack
Obama's real intent is to weaken U.S. military and intelligence capabilities
and in the process compromise our national security.
Obama Lies, American Soldiers
The facts about two important military policy
decisions, both of which compromise our armed forces' ability to do their
jobs and which put American soldiers' lives at further risk, have finally
begun to emerge. Both the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the military
drawdown in Afghanistan were sold to lawmakers and the American public
through the Obama administration's lying in order to achieve its apparent
ends: weakening America's military strength and compromising our chances
for military success.
Sexting, Obama's Guilty of 'Nexting'
In a rare moment of clarity, President Obama
said this about the need for Anthony Weiner to resign in the wake of the
New York Democratic Congressman's sexting scandal: "When you get
to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't
serve as effectively as you need to, at the time when people are worrying
about jobs, and their mortgages, and paying the bills - then you should
probably step back.'' The problem is, Obama is following the same path
as Weiner has followed. The difference is that the distractions to which
the president has fallen prey are more serious than those Weiner is guilty
of, and the lies he's told trying to avoid facing responsibility for pursuing
those distractions are much more damning and destructive than those Weiner
is accused of. Where Weiner is guilty of sexting, Obama is guilty
Barack Obama's 15 Minutes of
In 1970, George Winne, Jr., achieved his Warholian
15 minutes of fame by setting himself on fire on the campus of the University
of California, San Diego, to protest the war in Vietnam. These days you
can achieve the same notoriety if you've done nothing more than bronze
yourself to a deep pre-cancerous glow like tanning addict Patricia Krentcil.
Or, you can take things several steps further by doing your best to destroy
the U.S. economy, fraternize with the Islamic enemy, and cripple the American
energy industry. Add in advancing the cause of bringing our country under
the rule of a big-government, crony-capitalist elite by dividing America
into warring minority demographic groups in the most blatant manner imaginable,
and you've got Barack Obama's claim to his 15 minutes of fame.
Teach Your Children Well
Contrary to what Barack Obama and others of his
ilk would have us believe, there are many reasons America works. Among
them is that we're a capitalistic society. Capitalism, while it is hardly
free from excess, is the one economic system that enables anyone, no matter
what his ethnicity or his origins, to create his own means for making
Obama's Pre-Election Assault
on Latinos and Hispanics
When the polls swing in Romney's direction, Eric
Holder and the Obama campaign swing into action. Rather than address the
administration's economic and foreign policy plays that have doomed the
economic recovery and led the world into political turmoil in the absence
of American leadership, they attack states' attempts to remove illegitimate
voters from their rolls. At the same time they're enabling the population
of voter rolls to swell with illegal Hispanic and Latino immigrants, Obama
and Holder continue to defraud this demographic by attempting to conceal
their roles in Operation Fast & Furious, the policy that allowed high-powered
weapons to be "walked" from the U.S. into Mexico.
Revives Jim Crow
The Jim Crow era was, as Thomas Sowell points
out, a time when "courts [made] decisions based on the race of the
defendants, rather than the facts of the case." In the Trayvon Martin
case, the "court" is the court of public opinion, one in which
both the media who side with and protect the president and the president
himself are the perpetrators of a new iteration of Jim-Crowism. They're
re-introducing this ugly practice into the public arena by quickly, before
any evidence pro or con has been allowed to surface and be vetted, making
inflammatory comments based on their biased assumptions that no white
person could possibly be within his rights to use a gun against a black
person in an incident such as the one that occurred between George Zimmerman
and Trayvon Martin.
Faux Feminism: Democrats'
War On Women
The events following public relations professional
Hilary Rosen's unimaginably ill-advised assertion that Ann Romney "never
worked a day in her life" have created nothing less than a firestorm
for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Although it appears that Rosen's
words themselves were spontaneous, the faux war on women that Rosen is
helping to orchestrate for the Obama administration by claiming it's Republicans
who are the guilty party represents an important front in the left's and
the Obama campaign's more general war on America.
Democrats' Legislative Snuff
Given what used to be called the unintended consequences
of so many Democratic legislative initiatives, we have to ask if in fact
it might be Democrats' intention to kill as many Americans as they can
through "legal" means. You know, American car manufacturers
create new models of very light automobiles to satisfy congressionally
mandated CAFE mileage standards and kill tens of thousands of Americans
who bought these automotive equivalents of ultra-light aircraft and discovered
the hard way that they provide no protection at all in a crash. Leftist
legislation has essentially legalized murder in so many cases that you
have to wonder if they're not surreptitiously carrying out the homicidal
intent of their ideological forbears, tyrants like Joseph Stalin and Mao
Romney: Pre-Empting the Left's
Romney is beginning to shift his focus away from
what he needs to do in order to gain the nomination to what he needs to
do to get his and his Party's message out as the Republican nominee. A
significant component of that task will be to prepare, not just to counter
from a defensive stance the Democratic onslaught against his record that
is sure to come - his Republican challengers have certainly given us a
preview of what that might be in their attacks on Romney - but to aggressively
address his "issues issue"; that is, what have been characterized
as his flip-flops on everything from health care to environmentalism.
In addition, he must seize on issues that undermine Obama's presidency
and relentlessly attack the president on them.
Untangling the Republican Delegate
It is possible that Mitt Romney might not get
the requisite number of delegates before the Republican National Convention
is held in August, but that's looking more and more unlikely as the primary
season grinds on. Because it could happen, though, here's a review of
the "delegate math," as well as a look at how it might be skewed
by the tangled web of rules spun by the Republican Party and the flouting
of those rules by a couple of key states.
Once Was a Student Named Fluke . . .
I understand that Sandra Fluke (trying to remember
what her name rhymes with . . . it'll come to me) has risen rapidly up
the charts of the attorneys who scout law schools for likely candidates
in the upcoming Department Of Justice annual lawyer draft. It's similar
to the National Football League's player draft, but potential DOJ draftees
don't have to go through a combine that measures their skills and strengths
as college football players do. All they have to do to attract the attention
of Eric Holder's DOJ scouts is make outrageous statements about how U.S.
taxpayers should pay exorbitant fees for contraception for America's most
Obama's Ideology-Driven Presidency
Barack Obama stood in the demilitarized zone
between South and North Korea and stared through binoculars at the remnants
of a country. He was dumbfounded as he looked northward at the barren
wasteland that a communist dictatorship had created. It was as if he was
seeing for the first time what the word "communist" means. He
sounded more like a 7th-grader than the president of the United States
as he marveled, "It is like you are looking across 50 years into
a country that has missed 40 or 50 years of progress."
Soledad O'Brien, Ted Patrick,
and the American Educational Gulag Archipelago
You're probably aware of CNN news anchor Soledad
O'Brien. You may even have seen her utterly befuddled by the idea that
Obama's association with Harvard Law professor Derrick Bell might present
the same set of difficulties as the president's affiliation with other
anti-American radicals such as Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers. What O'Brien
herself doesn't realize is that she's been brainwashed, victimized by
a cult that recruits its members from society's intellectual elite with
the promise of a high-quality education and lucrative post-college employment,
indoctrinates them into a belief system that eschews traditional morality
and rejects the notion that economic reality matters, and looses them
on an unsuspecting American public after they finish their undergraduate
and graduate work at prestigious Ivy League colleges and universities.
Beware of Geeks Bearing Grifts
Even as production of the Chevy Volt is suspended
and 1,300 Government Motors workers laid off, I'm waiting for Obama to
truly pay tribute to the phony-science grifters that have become such
an integral part of his administration by staging the first Chevy Volt
presidential motorcade, where friendly Volts replace the ominous black
bus in which the president has previously traveled while campaigning.
I can envision the Volt Procession moving slowly down Pennsylvania Avenue
away from the White House. The president is scrunched down in the back
seat. (Do these homely little creatures - they seem closer to giant insects
than to automobiles - even have back seats?) The president and the Secret
Service are hoping no Islamist terrorists - pardon me, inadvertent perpetrators
of man-caused disasters - have the temerity to attack the parade.
