5.7% Growth? Not Even! Dems Vote 1.9 Trillion Debt Increase.

While Obama sacrifices and ‘finds’ TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS in spending cuts…. I’d say “WHAT?!!!” – but my editor yells at me when I get redundant. The hutzpah of this bunch, from the President right on down, is BREATHTAKING. With Democrats under challenge in states all over the union you would think that Congressional Democrats would understand that a highly motivated and IRATE electorate is watching their every move with the intensity of a laboratory technician studying a virulent microorganism. Good simile though. With Illinois, like Massachusetts, no longer a guaranteed lead-pipe cinch Democrat playground.

States all over the nation are experiencing the same transformation. California’s Senator Barbara Boxer is being challenged by former Congressman Tom Campbell (R). Tom has a comfortable lead on the GOP pack but get this… he is running only FOUR POINTS behind Babs in this West Coast liberal wonderland.  For him to be this close early in the race does not bode well for Boxer. In the severely economically depressed Central Valley all GOP candidates are running ahead of her.

Tom Campbell

With the extreme left wing California Assembly about to fall upon Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto sword over the absolutely preposterous TWO HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR California State Single Payer Health Care Bill now sitting in the Assembly, California with an almost 40 billion dollar budget shortfall  and the state about to declare itself out of money again, voters are likely to come out of their self-induced stupor long enough to remember that it is Democrats that are doing all this to them and that probably won’t do Boxer much good either.

FIVE POINT SEVEN PERCENT GROWTH in the GDP… and over half of it attributed to inventory replenishment,  most of that dependent on fiscal and monetary stimulus. Economist Nouriel Roubini, who predicted the  banking crash and recession, stated that the second half of this year will fade to just  1.5 % growth as stimulus dollars decline and fade away WITH NO JOB GROWTH. Watch for Obama to trumpet TEMPORARY CENSUS JOBS as a spectacular INCREASE in employment. But then we’ve seen that he’ll do or say just about anything.

California Patriots should be pounding out the faxes, emails, phone calls, letters and visits to State Assembly members’ offices – remind them that what happened in Massachusetts could happen  in California as well. Meanwhile Congressional Democrats WITHOUT a single Republican vote plunged this country ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS FARTHER IN DEBT. Undoubtedly clearing the way for more Democrat drunken spending binges.
These people have to be stopped… It’s my job… it’s your job… IT’S OUR JOB!!

Illinois, The Next Massachusetts – Obama Tries To Bluff GOP.

Here we go. The primary election is February 2, 2010. The unfortunate Roland Burris’s  US Senate seat is up for grabs… appointed by the disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich. Burris was unable to garner support for a re-election bid and so announced his retirement.

Illinois Conservative patriot groups are backing solid Conservative Don Lowery (R), a retired circuit court judge, former County State’s Attorney and a VietNam veteran (R), and Andrew Andrzejewski, a Conservative businessman and political outsider running against the entrenched Illinois corrupt political machine. Both of these candidates are running uphill battles against well-funded political machines. Whatever you can do to to help them between now and the 2nd of February please do. Go online and plug into their websites.

Judge Don Lowery

If we can pull off another upset in Illinois it will send another unmistakable message to the Democrats who are STILL working behind closed doors to sneak a health care bill past us.

Andrew Andrzejewski

President Obama was invited to speak in front of the Republican Party Conference and went on an 82 minute diatribe, interspersed with some sharp questioning and pointed statements from Republican legislators. Obama took on the same strident tone that he used on the Supreme Court and his attempted bullying of the Republicans is probably not going to gain him many friends among the assembled Congressmen and Senators.

Obama alternated between whining complaint and petulant accusation, at one point accusing Republican opponents of portraying his stalled health care scheme as a Bolshevik plot. Uhh, Mr. Obama, that may be the truest statement you’ve ever made. He further accused them of telling their constituents that he is doing all kinds of crazy things to destroy America… right, right and right. But, President Obama, we didn’t need the Republicans or anyone else to tell us… we figured it out all by ourselves, say, back about last February.

His laughable attempt to somehow ‘hold Republicans responsible’ for not signing on to his delusional policies for entrapping the American people in his BOLSHEVIK PLOT is going to have just the exact opposite effect that he’s expecting. He’s read the opposition as poorly as he has the American people. Of course he’s no ideologue… no, not at all…..
We are not buying it, Obama… no, not even… not a bit.

Judicial Intimidation – More Obama Third World Marxist Tactics.

Scoring the President’s speech was a breeze. There was not a single word of truth in anything he said. Period. One hour, nine minutes and forty four seconds of absolute statist crap. If Mr. Obama thought that his HUGOESQUE farce impressed anyone other than himself he was deluded. Not even his own party could be moved to support him in the face of overwhelming opposition from most of the country.

When even the reliable  moderate Fred Barnes asks, “Haven’t we heard this speech before?”, you know your tune isn’t playing. But Fred, whom I seldom agree with, has a point… EVERY Obama speech sounds like every other Obama speech. That’s what happens when your ideology bumps into the nations reality. Barnes also said that it was the ‘least fresh’ State of the Union speech he had ever heard. Wow! Another point of agreement. I think Fred was speaking for most of the nation, aside from the rehashed liberal gibberish I referred to yesterday there were more assaults on the middle class, via pumping more private sector dollars into “job” programs which will only grow more government jobs and short term jobs, which will die as the money runs out. Watch for the big push for centralized government programs all over again.

Fred Barnes

What seems to be the message from President Obama is that he DIDN’T get the message that we, the people of the United States of America, have been sending him. We don’t want your massive government spending, taxes, regulation, and control of our health care system. Congress, however, HAS been getting the message in abundance. YOU ALL can take credit for that. It’s YOU, the American people, who are responsible for what happened in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts. It wasn’t the party machinery of the RNC. It was your unremitting efforts at getting the message out there that WE WILL NOT TOLERATE Obama’s back room, third world Marxist politics.

Obama urged Democrat Representatives and Senators to fall in behind him and ‘win one for the Gipper’. All the while they are scattering like a covey of frightened quail while counting the days until November. Few will be willing to commit political seppuku for Obama’s ideologically driven delusions.

Obama’s shameful third world treatment of the honorable members of the highest court in the land, and the DEMOCRATS who participated with him in it, was vintage Hugo Chavez or perhaps Mao Tse Tung. Especially given that he premised his Stalinist attack on a lie… which after all WAS pure Stalin. Few of the members of the Court will forget about about this treatment while Obama remains in office which may turn out to be a good thing for the rest of America.

Supreme Court Judges Listen To The State Of The Union Address.

The Supreme court made the correct decision overturning the portion of the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold Act that limited the freedom of individual speech, all leftist claims aside. The laws concerning foreign contribution to US election campaigns were UNTOUCHED AND REMAIN IN FORCE!
Another Obama BALD FACED LIE.
What last night taught us is that Barack Obama is far too ideologically committed to do anything like a Bill Clinton shift to the right. This is going to mean that at least for us the fight continues unabated.

Our marching orders are clear. We need to fight these people over every single item of their agenda and give no ground at all, for in fact is that not the way they have dealt with us?
Continue the Conservative march to victory in November and beyond. Shout the praises of freedom and the American way of life to your friends and your neighbors, and defeat those who would see us drown in the third world misery that would be Obama’s America.

Nowhere Man’s Address… Return To Sender. Obama’s Bomb.

I promised you the same repackaged garbage that our President has been putting out all along, with some fresh and a little recycled liberal garbage thrown in for garnish… and he delivered in spades. In the second longest speech in the history of state-of-the-union messages, Barack Obama presided over a real yawner, (ask Harry Reid) and managed to unify Republican, Independent and Conservative opposition to his extremist policies, and insult the Supreme Court, an act which he my live to regret and turn the military solidly against him. Once again the entire thrust and focus was on himself.

Noted history professor and PhD, Charlie Self, called Obama’s speech “the most self aggrandizing Presidential address in history”. Obama was hoping to quell incipient unrest and possible defections from Democrat Representatives who, given the debacles in Massachusetts and the deterioration of the UNIVERSALLY despised health care bill, are looking to November with justifiable trepidation.

Some Democrats could not withhold their anger. Representative Stephen Lynch, D-Mass, speaking to Obama Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner at hearing about the Wall Street bailout, “It just stinks to the high heaven what happened here”. Whether he knew it or not Representative Lynch hit it right on the national ‘head of the nail’ echoing American taxpayers. Democrats are also angry at the loss of stature that Obama’s failed policy initiatives have caused them.

There has been a marked reluctance amongst Democrats who have been bullied, pushed and pulled by Obama and the Congressional leadership to walk in the usual Democratic ‘lockstep’.
Obama also engendered the ire of the members of the Supreme Court. Saying that they had exposed the American body politic to “foreign influences” by their decision to return the FIRST AMENDMENT to the CONSTITUTION and the AMERICAN PEOPLE, Obama made himself no friends among the Supremes, as at one point Justice Samuel Alito mouthed to him, “YOU’RE WRONG”.

The best thing that could be said for his touted ‘boost for the middle class and small business’ is that it won’t work, will probably lead to massive inflation and a ‘double-dip recession. Business is so confident in Obama’s policies that Home Depot announced layoffs and Sam’s Club is laying off ELEVEN THOUSAND PEOPLE.

In proof of Einstein’s posit that the surest sign of insanity was repeating the same failed action over and over, Obama is seeking to add ANOTHER stimulus to the money that has been literally flushed down the toilet with little or no accountability, and no jobs other than government and temporary jobs that will go away as soon as the money is gone. It’s the exact same failed policies and assaults on the private sector and the middle class that got us here. As far as the President’s ‘freeze on discretionary spending’ goes Charles Krauthammer put it most succinctly, “it’s like using a Q-tip” on the problem.

Obama has also tripped the third rail fuse on the “don’t ask don’t tell” issue as his payoff to the gay lobby. Almost universally condemned by the military and service members, this is just plain stupid policy to inflict on a military committed to combat worldwide in a war of extermination with a fanatical foe that is sworn to the destruction of this country.

Conservative Republicans have their work cut out for them to see that Obama’s socialist agenda never comes to fruition. It is, after all, only “the end of the beginning”.

More John McCain? Remember McCain-Feingold… Shamnesty.

Does anyone out there seriously think we need six more years of John McCain’s RINO deal-making with the very people who are trying to steal our freedoms? McCain, coming off of his failed Presidential bid, has garnered the support of some fellow RINOs in the party such as Florida Governor Charlie Crist, in payment of political favors received, and Sarah Palin, I imagine for much the same reason.

I wish she’d reconsider. I’m beginning to think that she may need to go back and re-tool her political science and history credentials, given her glaring inability to field Bill O’Reilly’s questions on their recent interview. Don’t get me wrong, I like Sarah Palin and see her as a potential superstar in the Conservative political movement. But if she can’t get past O’Reilly, who after all was simply reiterating criticisms and questions that had already been posited, she’d have one hell of a time on the national political stage and in particular a 2012 presidential bid.

John McCain - CBS 'Face The Nation' Jan24, 2010

Her support for McCain may prove a liability in the eyes of Conservatives, and not a few Independents, who view John McCain as being far too liberal on critical issues facing this country. There are far too many people like myself who remember one of McCain’s more enduring political liabilities, the 2002 McCain-Feingold Act, thankfully largely overturned by a recent Supreme Court decision.
All leftist media bleating and ’soft money’ blather aside, this bill was nothing more than a direct assault on the FIRST AMENDMENT of our Constitution.

ANY act that bridles or abridges the right of free speech, whether for an individual, a group of individuals, a club, company, corporation or union, is a direct violation of the First Amendment of our Constitution. That McCain was willing to sell the Constitution he SWORE to defend down the river for short term political gain says worlds about him.

Another McCain super liability, one which arguably may have tipped the balance in costing him the support of Conservatives and Independents, was his support for the McCain-Kennedy Comprehensive Amnesty Bill. McCain was always at the forefront of those who stated that ‘WE HAD TO’ have illegal aliens in this country to do the work that AMERICANS wouldn’t do. Voters remembered an ill-conceived statement in front of a blue-collar audience that Americans couldn’t work in the lettuce fields. He foolishly challenged, “You can’t do it my friend”.

The entire illegal alien question is the silent ‘third rail’ of American politics. The left wants illegals for a super welfare-class of guaranteed Democrat voters. Conversely, business sees them as a continuing source of low cost labor. AMERICAN CITIZENS, including most HISPANICS, see them as a drag on the economy, on social services, on the criminal justice system, on education and on the sovereignty of the nation. That’s what McCain is remembered for.

Then there was the ‘GANG OF FOURTEEN’ in which McCain supported the Democrats in sustaining judicial filibusters. Thumbing his nose and then sticking it in the eye of Conservatives to boot. His oft-touted ‘maverick’ status which brought him the attention and plaudits of the liberal press did little to endear him to us.
With a record like this one wonders why the citizens of Arizona continued to return him to the Senate term after term?

There is the propensity of all voters to return incumbents to office however illogical that may seem. In John McCain’s case there is his status as a genuine VietNam war hero. His jet fighter was shot down over North VietNam, he was captured and was severely brutalized and tortured while a POW. No one, least of all me, a Marine Veteran, would dishonor that. His politics however are a different matter.

J.D. Hayworth

McCain may be challenged by a solid conservative, former Representative J.D. Hayworth, who has not actually declared at this time. McCain’s people are in a positive sweat at this and are pulling out all the stops to try and discredit Hayworth. This alone would have a tendency to make me want to support him. With a rock-solid Conservative philosophy on all of the issues that are dear to Americans and Arizonians, Hayworth stands a good chance of defeating McCain.
As a Conservative, if Hayworth declares I’m going to throw my support behind him. I urge you all to investigate his record and background as I have and support him as well.

Barack Obama – The Middle Class Untruth.

It’s not like, “Oh gravy!” “What’s he lying about this time?” It’s more like which SETS of multiple lies do I start with.
While Mr. Mealy Mouth was wowing the kiddies at an elementary school by standing feet above them, looking down his nose at the teleprompters again, Nancy and Harry, with Obama’s direct knowledge and approval, have concocted a complete Rube Goldberg torturing of the legislative process in order to cram that health bill down your throat, 60 votes or not.

They intend to achieve this by a bizarre bait and switch use of the reconciliation process and a total backdoor agreement between Senate and House versions to be enacted by Democrat Representatives, on a promise of signing on to it AFTER Obama signs the legislation and enacts changes agreed to beforehand to satisfy the various recalcitrant factions.

This one is so sleazy, fraudulent and most likely unconstitutional, as to be hard to absorb. It’s almost surrealistic. If the general populace learns of this one they may decide to go the tar and pitchfork route after all. Those Bluedogs? HAMMER THE HELL OUT OF THEM!! They are the Obama, Pelosi, Reid lynch pin on this. So it’s back to the mattresses for Conservatives and Independents. Call, fax, email and contact your local representative’s office. THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED.

Obama, meanwhile, is touting that his stimulus has ’saved or created’ TWO MILLION JOBS. President Obama, YOU’RE LYING THROUGH YOUR EYE TEETH. The Obama administration has been doing everything diametrically opposite of what is required to create new jobs. His assaults on business and the MIDDLE CLASS (this is classic marxism). Assaults on the financial and banking sectors who small business is dependent on for funding and expansion. This is all a direct assault on the middle class because small businesses drive job creation in this country, and SMALL BUSINESS IS THE MIDDLE CLASS!

Now President Obama is going to pull a classic Saul Alinsky right shift and try to convince someone in the ‘middle class’ that he really cares. He is going to claim that the middle class has been under ‘assault’. Yeah Obama, by whom?
15 MILLION JOBS LOST. The worst month for housing sales in FORTY YEARS, down 17% in December. It’s the middle class that buy homes, Obama. It’s the middle class that can pay for them.
Remember all that Democratic junk paper? Those are YOUR foreclosures. Those are the poor that you and ACORN forced the banks to loan to, the ones who had not a prayer of being able to repay.

Your public debt Obama: $12,245,872,000,000 – a figure almost inconceivable in its scope, and you want to increase that debt ceiling by another ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS, and you’re going to go in front of the country and preach about FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY?!!
You have destroyed those jobs, Obama, you have destroyed them by sucking billions upon billions of dollars out of the private sector.
You were speaking about being a one term President, Mr. Obama.
From your lips to God’s ears.

Obama – A Case Of Diminishing Returns.

David Axelrod is telling us breathlessly that his glorious leader is FEISTY. I guess from that monumental statement Conservatives should be quaking in our boots in anticipation of the drubbing to be handed out by the President during his state of the union address. Pardon us while we don’t get overly apprehensive about repackaged garbage. According to White House insiders President Obama will focus on JOBS and the DEFICIT. In other words, everything he has worked so diligently to destroy in his ideological drive to transform this nation a la Saul Alinsky.

This is worth repeating. While Obama is busy revamping his message and telling us what a terrible raw deal he was handed by George Bush… remember that one? The one engineered by Democrats through Fannie and Freddie, Acorn, AIG and players like Goldman Sachs, with the willing accompaniment and active interference of people like Barack Obama, Barney Frank, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd, the chairman of the House Banking Committee? Good public servants all.

Our President has presided over a money glut of historic proportions, one which if allowed to run to its conclusion will cost the taxpayers of this country FOUR POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS by 2016. This is in addition to the 5.1 trillion Bush and Obama are already responsible for.
Now he wishes to speak of fiscal responsibility and will seek to find blame everywhere but where it belongs. During the Bush years we saw gains of THREE POINT SEVEN MILLION new jobs. Not as impressive as the Clinton years and the hysterical growth prior to the .com bubble burst, which left George Bush with a recession of his own to deal with, a fact that is conveniently discarded by the tame Democrat left-leaning press and most politicians, but still solid substantial job growth.

Now we come to Obama and the great GREEN job revolution that ain’t. Better than 15.3 million jobs lost to the recession, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The pathetically few jobs he can credit himself with are mostly government and / or temporary. Once again, GOVERNMENT PRODUCES NOTHING.
The American people know about job growth. They know where jobs come from and they also know that runaway regulation and massive tax increases are not going to create those jobs. Obama is putting out feelers for a SECOND stimulus to ‘jump start’ job growth. That seems to be the entire liberal philosophy… not accounting or taking responsibility for failed policy but taking refuge behind inanity such as “it needed more funding to do it right”, or “it needed more time”, which amounts to the same thing.

This is a mantra we’ve heard from the left consistently on one public policy issue after another for a hundred years. The definition of insanity is doing something with negative results and going back and doing it again and again expecting a different outcome.
President Obama, we await your little extravaganza with bated breath, while we observe your cronies scrambling for whatever political cover they can find.

Ohio – Obama Preaches To The Wrong Crowd.

I can’t get no satisfaction could well be President Obama’s mantra these days. Picked audiences or not it just keeps getting worse for the embattled Barack Obama, while telling us about the ‘green jobs’ that may or may not be created by research into solar power and wind generation, which most experts agree will never amount to more than 20 per cent of the power requirements of this country at best. All the while bringing the entire weight of the government and its unelected regulatory agencies to destroy our most abundant sources of energy, coal, oil and natural gas.

It is so typical of Obama to speak out of ‘both’ sides of his mouth… promoting an unproven and economically questionable technology while attacking another economic sector and its jobs.
Speaking of his administration’s recent debacles in collisions with the American people Obama said, “I’m not going to walk away just because it’s hard”. Sounds a lot like Hillary saying, “I don’t feel no way tired”.

John Boehner

The fact is he got his butt kicked good and hard. Ohio Republican Minority Whip, John Boehner, speaking of Ohio’s TEN POINT NINE PERCENT UNEMPLOYMENT rate, referred to Obama’s touting of his failed stimulus. “Tens of thousands of people have lost their jobs since the stimulus was enacted”. “Nine straight months of double digit unemployment”. The rest of the country echoes these words.

The entire machinery of Democratic governance nation wide is a runaway freight train on a collision course with the real world. Witness the State of California under a ‘liberal’ RINO (Republican In Name Only) Governor (Arnold Schwarzenegger), with a completely leftist state legislature more attuned to social engineering than action which would save this most populous state in the nation from bankruptcy and economic oblivion. With an unemployment rate at more than 10.6 percent, and some areas such as the San Joaquin Valley as high as FORTY PERCENT.

Ron Nehring

With our total state budget deficit at close to SIXTY BILLION DOLLARS and many of our Governor’s spending ‘cuts’ amounting to book-cooking budget shifts, the state legislature is proposing a universal health care system at an annual cost of some 200 billion dollars annually. I have run out of superlatives to describe this nuttiness but Ron Nehring, California State Republican Chairman, put it nicely, “California Democrats are either tone-deaf or delusional”.

This exact statement could be used just about anywhere in the country and especially at the national government level. The Democrats simply seem unable to stop or change course.
The American people will no longer tolerate BUSINESS AS USUAL, from Democrats or Republicans. That’s the message. Ignore it at your peril.

Obama: I, I, Me, Me, I’ll, I’ll….

Ohio brought out the best Barack Obama has to offer – and it isn’t much. He did a lot of speech-making about how he was doing this for us and how he was going to do that for us. The only problem, as far as the people of Ohio and the rest of the nation are concerned, is that it’s not about what he’s going to do for us, it’s about what he’s DOING TO US.

Obama had just come from telling America’s banking industry that the heavy regulatory hand of government will come crashing down on ‘the evil bankers’ who have been basking in the light of special regulatory exemptions. Saying nary a word about the Democrats, who for thirty years systematically created the environment that made Fannie and Freddie BILLIONS in very questionable sub-prime mortgages mandated by the government. Add the suicidally risky practice of the hedge and private equity funds in gambling with tons of this sub-prime paper, and bundling and reselling the same bunk paper. Democrats, meanwhile, taking huge bribes from these banking giants in the form of campaign contributions for running interference against those who sought to control and regulate what some forecast as pending disaster.

Obama: "...and... and, and... and... BATTERIES!"

Barack Obama, a reasonable person could argue, has not only done nothing to help America to recover from this Democrat created disaster, but everything possible to make it worse.
We can blame part of the problem on the Bush administration for allowing it to occur, not acting forcefully enough to control his own big government and not having guts enough to stand up to the Democrats. Bush did a lot of things wrong. He left us with a total deficit of 2.5 TRILLION dollars through 2008. Still, one must consider this includes the spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Barack Obama and George Bush can share the blame for an additional 2.6 TRILLION dollar increase for 2009.

Barack Obama, in what can only be considered to be a purposeful effort to bring this country down given the evidence at hand, is presiding over a drunken orgy of graft and pork-laden government bloat to the tune of an estimated FOUR POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS by 2016.
This is a figure beyond the average person’s comprehension.
Unfortunately for Mr. Obama the average people in the nation didn’t have to count the zeros to understand that we didn’t like what he was trying to do to us.
Therein, as they say, lies the rub. President Obama keeps saying what he’s going to do for ‘us’. We keep seeing what he’s doing TO us.

Massachusetts should have been a flare lit tip off, but Barack and that sorry clown Congress just don’t get it.
They are right back out there telling us what it is THAT WE WANT, while they are repackaging the same stinking pile that cost them New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts, in what has to be one of the most stunning upsets in politics for decades.
Barack just can’t spin it to where it sounds anything but empty and threatening to Americans and judging by his poll numbers, Americans aren’t buying.

Supremes Get One Right: Gut McCain Feingold.

After one of the WORST activist based decisions in history, that of April 2, 2007, which gave the EPA the power to treat auto CO2 emissions as an environmental issue, the Supreme Court seems to have finally put its robes on straight and actually READ the Constitution they are sworn to abide by. The court struck down major portions of the bill, especially those relating to the government’s regulation of free speech.

Senator John McCain’s support for this widely unpopular bill turned many Conservative and Independent voters against him, myself among them. That, and his support for amnesty among other “across the aisle” excursions, probably made him unelectable to anyone but party insiders. Frankly, I voted for him only as a vote against Barack Obama.

One hopes that the Supremes would continue their study of the Constitution for what it actually says and not in support of activist goals. It should be noted that President Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, voted against the people of this country.

Supreme Court Of The United States

A number of other things have happened that should have Conservative patriots concerned since Scott Brown overturned Barack Obama’s brown, wormy apple cart. Nancy Pelosi, looking much like she had just bitten into one of those apples, admitted that they did not have the votes for the passage of Obama /Pelosi /Reid care. That’s a good thing, that’s a very good thing.

Democrats are scrambling to come up with something that doesn’t smell of defeat and absolute retreat for their boss, while in the face of an indisputable message from the AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Obama announced that he would seek a ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLAR increase in the debt ceiling. I’d say “WHAT?!!!” But I used that yesterday. In does point to the incredible disconnect between mainstream America and the ideologically-driven Democrat government, that in the face of a clear message to the contrary the administration would continue down this politically suicidal path.

President Obama also announced the government takeover of the school loan program, another ONE HUNDRED AND THREE BILLION DOLLAR government takeover.
There were another 36,000 jobs lost last week, bringing job losses in the ‘Obama recovery’ to some 480,000 since the beginning of the Obama Presidency. Meanwhile, the Feds are planning to give PROTECTED STATUS to 200,000 Haitians.
This begs the question, just who the heck is protecting AMERICAN CITIZENS?

Here’s a question to France and that ODIOUS blowhard in Venezuela… where are your aid convoys to Haiti? Gee, guess they must have been delayed. But then we saw the way France treated it’s colonials and how Chavez treats his citizens.

There are Conservatives lining up in challenges to the leftists all over the country and the march to defeat the attempted takeover of our country continues. Now is not a time to slack up or to rest on yesterday’s accomplishments. Now is the time for action. Action begins in your communities. Action begins with you.

Obama And DeMarxists – Not Clueless, Totally Oblivious.

We’ve all heard about the alcoholic or the addict being in denial of the symptoms of their affliction while apparent to everyone else. The game changer that rocketed through the hills and dales and the suburbs, towns and cities of Massachusetts has the left throughout the country posting inanity after absurdity, explaining to themselves what has just occurred to their magnificent Marxist machine.

Repudiated in the very heart of their SANCTUM SANCTORUM, the Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy, the DeMarxists and their lame-stream media auxiliary are filling the ether with the usual half truth, spun and carefully blended with just (they think) the correct balance of misdirection and lies.
This is an old DeMarxist formula tried, proven and successful many times. Problem is, they can’t find any takers out here any more. Our truth meter pegs every time Obama, Reid, Pelosi, or smarmy creeps like Al Franken, open their mouths.

Obama spouts to Georgie-boy Stephanopoulos that Democrats had “lost their way” and he “feels he lost a direct connection to the American people in his first year in office because he focused too much on policy making”. WHAT?! This is a prime example of the absolute disillusionment that pervades the thinking of the ideologically-driven leftist. Obama also said that had we been able to pass health care faster, implying that had they been successful at ramming it down out throats, we would have been SO grateful to our communist masters and to His Magnificence Obama we would sing his praises in union-organized rally after rally.

Other DeMarxist luminaries from coast to coast have tried various and sundry exponents of this same theme. It’s amazing to watch. They are really so far divorced from the American citizen’s and patriot’s thinking and motivation that what they and their agenda suffered over VIRGINIA, NEW JERSEY and MASSACHUSETTS just hasn’t registered.

Certainly, the shock of Senator-elect Brown’s stunning upset victory has sent waves of fear and well deserved apprehension through the ranks of both the House and Senate.
The American voter, those that the ‘elite’ had thought safely marginalized and balkanized behind layers of race and political correctness, turned out to be far more well informed and unified than they could have possibly believed.

We have reacted quickly to stop what we saw as the blatant illegality, absolute moral turpitude and patent unconstitutionality of the acts of the leftist Marxists that have infiltrated and pervade our government today. They haven’t seen us coming. They chose to ignore the rising clamor of our voices as we wrote, called and marched.
They still aren’t getting the message, blinded as they are by their own arrogance.
Massachusetts is only the beginning…

Coakley Concedes – Scott Brown The Victor In Huge Upset!!

BROWN 53%, COAKLEY 47%. This is not quite an earthshaking event but it’s darn close. There are DeMarxists changing their depends from coast to coast. Even in the belly of the western beast in San Francisco that paragon of ultra-liberal stupidity, Gavin Newsom, is babbling proclamations of DeMarxist 20/20 hindsight saying that Democrats had better do some close navel checks because the Democrat brand has lost touch with the common people. This from the Maoist clown who defied the will of 70% of the people of California, who said that NO, they did NOT want gay marriage in this state and that marriage was defined as being between a man and a woman.

Scott Brown Celebrates His Victory

I wrote yesterday that this election was a referendum on Barack Hussein and the MaoMarxist House of Clowns. Given the resounding margin of victory for Scott Brown it’s becoming obvious that as in 1775, Massachusetts is again the cradle of the revolution and the upset victory for Scott Brown is the SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD. Don’t think our enemies aren’t listening. They can read the handwriting on the wall better than the DeMarxists themselves, who have completely blinded themselves to the rising flood of angry protest from the American people.

It’s going to be really interesting to watch the DeMarxist slimes and their pets in the lame stream press spin this one out. And dollars to doughnuts, coming out the back end they STILL won’t get it… all except the ‘moderate’ republicans and so-called ‘Blue Dog’ democrats who voted for the “health care” legislation that contributed so strongly to the Conservative Revolution that is now sweeping the nation. THEY get it. The ‘House Madam’ is going to play hell getting a lot of these people to repeat falling on their bayonets for the ‘Anointed One’, though a no vote at this juncture may be too late to redeem many in the eyes of their constituents.

The American people are not going to forget what the Democrats and the RINO Republicans have been complicit in doing to them. One thing is for sure if history is any guide, once the American people have been aroused to this degree the political bloodletting will continue past 2010 and resound clearly in the presidential race in 2012.
We shall not be satisfied with less than a thorough housecleaning.

The Spirit Of The Revolution Lives – It’s The People’s Seat!

It’s a referendum on Obama and his Maoist thug administration. It’s a referendum on Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Marxi-Maoists in our US Congress who would dare to steal our precious birthright of freedom from us. It’s a referendum on the blatant dishonesty and OUTRIGHT FRAUD that is being perpetrated by those who are supposed to serve the interests of the people and the country.

Americans, far from being the backward rubes the liberals/progressives/communists have been taking us for while they hide behind one ginned up issue after another, really get it. We know what they’ve been doing. Despite being lulled to sleep by generations of lies laminated one on top of another, a vast Conservative revival is burgeoning throughout this blessed land from coast to coast and border to border.

We also recognize our own shortcomings and mistakes of the past and are determined not to allow ourselves to be lulled into complacency, or allow our Conservative values to be diluted by false messages of ‘moderation’ and those who claim ‘expertise’ who would lead us astray from the proven principles of Conservative action. We have recent experience with a Republican party which WAS led astray from the principled exercise of Conservative governance. The end result is the nightmare we are living in the White House and in the halls of Congress today. The nightmare which has brought the country to the very brink of disaster and the looming shadows of TYRANNY.

Scott Brown Votes In Wrentham, Massachusetts.

Now we have the harbinger of the future which is going to form the substance of DeMarxist nightmares for a long time to come. An upstart, no name, no political pedigree Conservative State Senator is on the brink of waxing the floor with the anointed DeMarxist choice for the late (and unlamented) Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, Martha Coakley. There is some karmic justice here should she lose, which it appears likely she may. This is NOT A NICE PERSON. She has gone out of her way to destroy the lives of some innocent people for blatant political gain. But that’s a story for another time.

Scott Brown put the contest in perfect context when confronted by ‘the inevitability’ of the DeMarxist’s continuing control over the Kennedy seat. He replied, “It’s not a Democrat seat, it’s not Ted Kennedy’s seat, it’s the PEOPLE’S seat”. It’s a message that has resonated not only through the state but through the entire country.

PLEASE, if you live in Massachusetts BE SURE TO VOTE, call every one you know to vote and have them call everyone they know. It may be crappy weather out there, but living under a tyranny as posed by the DeMaoists would be a lot crappier.
God bless you all and GOOD LUCK SCOTT.

Maobama And The Great Conservative Commie Crunch.

It’s getting tough out there. It’s getting to be so’s a self-obsessed NEO-MARXIST can’t get a word in edgewise without some pro-lifer or pesky patriot getting into your dogma. Barack Hussein has met the real America and a very rough lesson it has been and will continue to be.

Boston University turned out to be one of those moments. Maobama’s handlers carefully packed his speech venue with selected bussed-in supporters, complete with print shop perfect posters supporting the miserably failed Martha Coakley. A suspicious mind would wonder if SEIU paid each one of these ‘party’ stalwarts $50.00 each to show up as they have elsewhere in Massachusetts (see Martha…THAT’S how you spell it).

In any case, the Enlightened One found it very difficult to spew his propaganda, as a handful of pro-life protesters brought his teleprompted rant to a halt while his picked crowd tried to shout them down. As Obama eventually completed his singularly unimpressive spiel the atmosphere was anything but dynamic and the President’s support of the failing Coakley campaign may have turned out to be a net lose, lose.
This was what the wiser heads in his administration (if there are such) feared. His presence had little or no impact on the race while expending what little political capital he had to spare. It’s a phenomenon that seems to be spreading quickly across the spectrum of the Marxist front in the country.

Scott Brown

The ‘health care’ bill is itself on a sort of life support as the administration and Congress fall into the use of desperation tactics to attempt the forcing of passage of this spectacularly unpopular piece of legislative monstrosity. The plans are:

a. Delay the certification of Scott Brown, should he be elected, until the DeMarxists can engineer passage for the bill using what George Will termed SERIAL CORRUPTION. This would have a serious backlash Democrats may not be willing to risk. Madame Pelosi may not be able to threaten enough votes for passage this time. As I said yesterday, there are THIRTY-SEVEN HOUSE SEATS whose districts are peed plenty and may decide to dump their elected Congress critters, even if they do vote no. Such is the price of treasonous perfidy.

b. They have been threatening to go the 51 vote reconciliation route, NEVER BEFORE used on a bill of this importance and magnitude. This would be sure to set off a firestorm of public resentment and added to the anger already out there might well prove catastrophic come NOVEMBER.

c. There is a potentially even more dicey maneuver that is being put forward by ever more desperate DeMarxists, to have the Senate agree on the House version as passed and send that directly to Maobama’s desk for signature. This is also reminiscent of the ‘Divine Wind’ tactics employed by Japan during the closing days of World War Two… spectacular and completely doomed to failure.
This tactic would also create a national furor that would resonate far beyond 2010 and Barack Obama’s tenuous grip on any hope of re-election in 2012 would vanish like morning mist in the sun.

Potential Coakley voters?

The last available polling results have Scott Brown over Martha Coakley 51/46 and the key Independents 64 % for Brown against 32% for Coakley.
Of course this IS Massachusetts and it remains to be seen how many inhabitants of the state’s cemeteries will show up to vote. Let’s hope the Republicans have sense enough to closely monitor all polling places.
We have one more day of campaigning before the election… Scott Brown can use YOUR help.
Keep pouring on the HEAT!!

All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men… May Not Be Enough.

The Anointed One’s panic button must certainly have been pushed to stir him from the urgency of crafting more illegal deals in his ILLEGAL attempted takeover of 16% of our total economy, taking ownership of our bodies and way of life as well.

It remains to be seen how close they really are to agreement. It also remains to be seen how many of their House votes will hold in the final analysis, given the amount of pressure being placed on Democrat and ‘moderate’ Republican RINOs by an enraged and daily-growing number of voters in their districts, and a constant barrage of negative feedback from Conservatives and Independents around the country.

The note of desperation could not be kept from reports coming from DeMarxist house organs such as The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and The New York Times, as they changed tracks and began to trumpet the list of DeMaoist heavies called upon to come forth and do battle with the upstart, but highly effective and well-liked, Scott Brown in the Massachusetts US Senate special election to determine who will hold the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

All of the administration’s sleaze mongers (those that could be spared from digging into Sarah Palin’s family) are desperately trying to find a way to destroy Scott Brown before the ballots can be counted. In the event of a Brown victory they will most surely attempt to steal the election, a la Barney Frank’s theft of his opponent’s victory through corrupt state election officials, operatives and liberal justices beholden to the left. It would behoove the Republicans to CAREFULLY monitor each and every polling place in the absolute certainty of the Maobamists pulling in the ACORN/SEIU and other Union thugocrats, to be prepared to stand up to them and for ONCE not get stepped all over. Conservative and Independent Tea Party Patriots would be perfect for this type of duty, as many of them have already been confronted by, and NOT intimidated by, the rent-a-mob goon squads.

Michelle, a disillusioned SEIU member.

It tickled the hell out of me to see a sign-wielding SEIU ‘protester’ in Massachusetts, who it turns out was an unemployed SEIU member, telling a television reporter that he was only there to collect the $50.00 being paid out by the union for the event. He further stated that he didn’t vote for Obama. This was a guy that was well aware what his union was doing. Don’t forget that SEIU and Andy Stern dropped a cool $680,000 on anti-Brown negative television ads. Hey, Andy! Ask for a refund. It didn’t work.

As we go into the final days of the campaign the DeMarxists are pulling out all the stops to try and salvage Martha Coakley. SHE CAN BE BEATEN!! Scott has been running consistently ahead in the polls in this liberal stronghold. No wonder the Enlightened One’s handlers are willing to throw away whatever capital he has left. THEY ARE DESPERATE.
Go online and give Scott whatever support you can – you don’t have to live in Massachusetts to actively help. Contact his campaign at

While the nation is rightly focused on this surprising thrust into the rotten heart of the liberal beast, don’t forget for a moment that we have major battles being fought on other fronts.
The DeMarxists have THIRTY SEVEN DISTRICTS that are in serious trouble from really aroused and ANGRY constituents who are definitely at risk of losing their jobs, and not nearly all of them are going to be willing to trust to the blandishments of cushy jobs being offered by Maobama, should they fall on their swords for him in vain. What? Not trust OBAMA? For shame.

Continue your efforts to call, fax, email, snail mail and visit your representatives’ offices. Make it so hot for them they’ll be afraid to show up. Don’t pay attention to the lies and invented stories of the LAME STREAM FRINGE MEDIA. It should be apparent to all and sundry by now that they have lied themselves into inconsequence.

Obama’s Bunker Mentality.

On January 16, 1945, sixty five years ago, Adolf Hitler entered his command bunker deep underground in Berlin, Germany, where he would spend his last 105 days as the Russian forces closed in on the beleaguered city. It was the beginning of the end of him and the tyrannical regime he inspired.

Inside Hitler's Bunker, 1945.

I’m not suggesting any real parallel between what occurred then and now… except that what has been shaping up in this country since January 2009 has been fast-tracked to a soft tyranny by Barack Obama and the majority Demarxists, with all of the single minded determination of ideological zealots. History has taught us that there is but a small step from there to the iron shackles of a Joseph Stalin, the gates of Auschwitz, or the killing fields of a Pol Pot in Cambodia. Obama immediately sprinted to the hard left after successfully selling himself as an ‘enlightened centrist’ to a gullible America, whose Conservative and Independent voters largely stayed out of it, virtually guaranteeing Obama’s victory.

It took a stunned America a few months to begin to react to everything they saw, that was WRONG about what was being said, and the total disconnect with what they saw as pragmatic good sense. Obama took a weak economy and a 600 billion dollar deficit and tripled it, printing money and handing out vast bribes and gratuities like drunken sailors on a binge.
The country had been and remains basically Conservative and right of center, facing a a hard core Marxist/Leninist trying to fundamentally change the values and freedoms so precious to us Americans. The result, as they say, is history.

There is a tidal wave of CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST REVOLUTION out there preparing to sweep the country. Americans have arisen in their righteous anger and the enemy is recoiling on all fronts. You can tell the tide is turning by the frantic tone of the comments coming from the various segments of the DeMarxist machine and the Maobamists in the administration, to say nothing of the Liar-in-Chief himself.

The surest measure of their desperation is sending Obama into the field of fire in what very well may be a futile gesture in Massachusetts, a move that until yesterday they had been unwilling to make. The DeMarxists are pulling out all the stops to attempt to halt the extremely popular and energetic campaign of Scott Brown in his battle with Martha Coakley, who has run a singularly unimpressive campaign. All the thugs and operatives, including Hillary Clinton, are in the mix and heading for Massachusetts to try to salvage the special election, for which at this time polls are showing a strong finishing surge for Brown as money pours into his coffers from all over the nation, sent by Conservative and Independent supporters.

After the resounding defeats of November 2009 the DeMarxists are desperate for a victory, as a loss in Massachusetts may put the final nail in the coffin for the health care bill which may already be in trouble, as constituents continue to hammer away at so-called ‘Blue Dog Democrats’ whose support for ‘Obamacare’ may be uncertain. This has been underscored by the cautionary statements issued by various highly placed Democrats.

The DeMarxist and Obama regime’s ‘bunker mentality’ increases proportionally with the advance of Conservatives’ march to freedom for our country.
Don’t forget to give Scott Brown your support. Contact the campaign at: – remember you don’t have to live there to help or contribute!
The Conservative march for freedom continues…

Obama News, All Bad All The Time – 444,000 Job Losses Last Month.

It’s hard to tell where to start with this guy, other than to say it’s more readily apparent every hour that America has just about had it with him. If Presidential elections were held today he wouldn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell. But wait! THAT part is GOOD news… at least for those of us who VALUE freedom, honor our COUNTRY, and believe in its CONSTITUTION.

The Anointed One bugled success in brokering a ‘DEAL’ with labor unions bosses, to whom his administration is in hock tentatively exempting so-called Cadillac health plans from the heavy taxation burden favored by DeMarxists and objected to strongly by the unions. The taxation axe would then also exempt family plans less than $23,000, leaving the burden of taxation to fall on those making more than $200,000 per year. Another OBAMA PROMISE SHATTERED and CLEARLY a blatantly unconstitutional move which begs a CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka got concessions from Democrats on taxes of high-end health plans.

That’s if it goes that far at all and at this point it’s not clear that it will. Opposition to the bill, even within DeMarxist ranks, is growing by the minute and the BROWN / COAKLEY race in Massachusetts is but a microcosm of the wave of outrage and discontent brewing in the country at this juncture. Obama is avoiding this race as though it were the bubonic plague, another sure sign that Coakley may have severe troubles at hand as Scott Brown continues to surge with a spirited and enthusiastic following.

Retail sales tanked in December and the floor dropped from under sales figures for 2009.
As stated in this column on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 housing foreclosures are set to go through the roof, with 2.8 million homes foreclosed on in 2009 and a record THREE POINT FIVE MILLION HOMES projected to be at risk of foreclosure this year. Once again, this figure does NOT reflect the long-feared and anticipated wave of COMMERCIAL foreclosures expected to hit this year and next.

With Obama having finally figured out that his blaming ‘everything Bush’ for his own failures and obvious shortcomings, the MAOBAMA spin machine have come up with one that they think may hold together before the New Media blows it out of the water… sort of like I’m doing now. ‘It’s OUR COMPUTER SYSTEM’. Yup, that’s it folks. It’s our outdated and outmoded computers that are causing this to be the most ineffective and dishonest administration in US history.
Hey, Obama! It’s great! Keep those cards and letters coming.

Demarxists Fear For Obamacare? Opposition Grows.

As if in sync with the cautionary statements coming from various quarters of the leftists’ Clown College, His Anointedness, Madame Pelosi and Dingy Harry emerged from another secretive closeted meeting at the once White House, to proclaim ’significant’ progress towards melding the House and Senate versions of the bill. This three pony carnival doesn’t ring true with what we’re hearing and the herrings being trailed out there by the Demarxists, some coming from surprising and unlikely sources.

Charles Rangel

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel (D-NY), “Forget all the other questions,….. We have serious problems on both sides of the Capitol”. “Serious problems”? Quite a statement from the normally party-line Rangel. A day earlier, Chris Dodd (D-Conn) stated, “Health care is hanging by a thread”. Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama both want heavy taxes placed on Cadillac and so-called millionaire’s plans. One is sure to anger Unions and be strongly opposed by those beholden to them and the other will generate much resistance from other interest groups. Sometimes you just can’t make anyone happy… except maybe the Republicans, who to their credit have stood virtually united against passage of this monstrosity.

The so-called blue dog Democrats, the ones that have sold out their votes and voters to the pressure of the administration, have been feeling the IMMENSE displeasure of their constituents and as a result have been seriously reconsidering their final vote despite the worst threats of the House Madame, Dirty Dingy Harry and the ever popular ‘Lurch’ of the administration, Rahm Emanuel. Deciding that any job may be better than no job and that “taking one for Obama”, may not really be in their best interests. It’s getting much harder for DeMarxist leaders to hold their votes together.

Eric Cantor

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor(R-Va), after meeting with members of his own conference said, “We are looking at THIRTY SEVEN Democrats that are in districts that are particularly upset and vulnerable to the provisions of this health care bill”. “Are they going to be with the people or are they going to be with Pelosi?”
Furthermore, aides who were present in the GOP conference said that House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said, “The bottom line is, I believe we can beat this bill. The American people are with us”.
Well John, based on what we are seeing and hearing out here in everyman land I believe you’re RIGHT!! We have waited so long for leaders who will lead and fight and not back down to every little tinhorn Marxist out there.

If you folks want to see what BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA looks like if WE don’t stop him, just take a good long look at HUGO CHAVEZ.
For some time now I and many other Conservative writers, media people, both radio and television, have been urging YOU the American citizen, patriot, voter and taxpayer to rise up and say HELL NO! YOU CAN’T HAVE OUR COUNTRY!!
Guess what? It’s working! Your determination, your Herculean efforts are paying off.
Keep up the good work… God Bless you… God Bless this great country.

SEIU $680,000 To Defeat Brown – Money Taken From Member Dues.

Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with this startling figure. For every job in the United States today there are over SIX POINT FIVE APPLICANTS. Another big Obama confidence builder.
By the way Obama, IN SECRET as usual, signed an executive order establishing a so-called Council of Governors. Another purely STALINIST move by MAOBAMA. This Council of Governors is to ‘provide input’ on “homeland defense and civil defense challenges facing our nation today and in the future”. The President will hand pick ten goons, er… Governors, to serve on the council and help with the synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States.

Let’s be blunt. It’s a direct assault on Posse Comitatus, the 1878 laws that prevents the military from being used as a civil police force. It’s an assault on States’ rights. It’s the HARBINGER of OBAMA’S stated plan of a NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE. It may also be the clarion call for Americans to rise up and shake off this nascent tyranny, hopefully at the ballot box, but the Founders spoke of the alternatives.

Meanwhile in the state of Massachusetts, Scott Brown has Martha Coakley sweating profusely as she makes a massive screw-up, showing the world just how weak her credentials really are when she blithely stated that there aren’t any more terrorists left in Afghanistan. One has to wonder if the lady may not have been attending classes at the Jumpin’ Joe Biden school of blatant STUPIDITY. The shock to the DeMarxists in this bastion of liberal politics is that Scott Brown is within TWO POINTS of Coakley, and Republicans and Independents in the State are energized and still gaining momentum.

Andy Stern

How nervous are they? Nervous enough to bring in the DeMarxists’ favorite goon-squad SEIU and their International President Andy Stern, whose concern for his “LITTLE GUY” membership extends to the point of taking their dues and purchasing television attack ads against Scott Brown, to the tune of SIX HUNDRED EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. Keep in mind most of his membership are in relatively low-paid service type jobs. I wonder how many of HIS members are out of work nationwide? Way to go Andy, Lenin would be proud. Scott Brown can win this thing and YOU CAN HELP! Go to
It doesn’t matter where you live.

We see that Ben Nelson is once again ‘not sure’ he’ll vote for the final version of the health care bill. Wonder what that’s about. Hmmm… Could it be he’s gotten the message that he’s toast? Yeah, Nelson, you and about 2/3 of those Commie Cretins you work with.
It’s astounding what an angry and aroused electorate generate in the way of ‘the fear factor’ with these aggrandizing scoundrels.

Moody’s Moody Blues… Forecast – 2.4 Million Residential Foreclosures.

In Obama’s fictional world all must be well, because the recession MUST have turned the corner…the enlightened one has told us so.
IN THE REAL WORLD IT AIN’T. It’s a frigid winter out there, just ask the global warming freaks who’ve suddenly discovered an incipient ice age and are scrambling their intellectual faux-scientific fannies off trying to spin it up.

The ECONOMIC chill in this country is proceeding apace. The FAUX economic intellectual DeMarxists hard at work DESTROYING your way of life and YOUR FUTURE are also hard at work spinning and spinning, but lo and behold there’s a severe lack of raw materials from which to spin much of anything. What’s more, what does manage to emanate from the party machinery and the sideline media these days, immediately runs afoul of the Conservative new media and Conservative blogosphere which is quick to unravel the untruths/lies of the left.

The administration was quick to trumpet that the world was brighter in December because the unemployment rate held steady at 10%. TYPICAL, they DIDN’T tell you that 661,000 job seekers had dropped off the radar entirely BECAUSE THEY HAD GIVEN UP looking for work, which was the only reason the unemployment figure remained at 10%.

Worse yet, (Moody’s Reports) forecasts TWO POINT FOUR MILLION FORECLOSURES for 2010. This doesn’t reflect the commercial foreclosure wave forecast for this year and next either.
Realty-Trac, who publishes the largest database of foreclosures, auctions and bank-owned homes in the nation, states that there have been THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND FORECLOSURES since February, when you will remember the Anointed One and his DeMarxist allies threw 838 BILLION dollars to the winds with meaningless promises to homeowners facing foreclosure.
They keep telling us the recession has TURNED the corner. The FACTS tell us differently.

The economy grew at a SUB-TEPID rate of 2.2% last year. In the first quarter of every recovery since World War Two the economy grew at a rate of SEVEN POINT THREE PER CENT.
Do you get the idea you might be being lied to? Does ANYONE out there still think that this President or this Congress has their interests at heart?

Continue the Conservative march to freedom. Continue to make your comments and opinions known.
Your continuous pressure IS HAVING AN EFFECT.
CONTINUE your calls, faxes, emails, letters and visits to Congress members’ offices. Keep the heat on these cretins…support your Conservative candidates…and for goodness sake GET ACTIVE in your localities.

Massachusetts Mayhem – Scott Brown… Bearding The Lion.

It’s symptomatic of what’s occurring all over the nation but this is one for the books. It’s happening in the very heart of that bastion of Eastern US runaway liberalism, Massachusetts.
Scott Brown (R), State Senator and a candidate in the Jan.19 special election for the US Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy, (the Liberal Lion), being held by interim appointee Paul Kirk Jr., has the country buzzing.

Scott Brown

What has Independents and Conservatives statewide energized and liberal Demarxists on the left running scared, is that Brown has come from far behind to pull to a one point lead as of Friday. His opponent, Martha Coakley, current Massachusetts State Attorney General, had been leading 50 percent to 41 percent. But Brown’s message has resonated with Independents, Conservatives and not a few Democrats.

Coakley has been at best a weak Attorney General and although Brown has gone out of his way not to attack her, the people of Massachusetts remember her as the woman who released a sexual predator to roam the streets of their state for two years. Add to that a very unpopular Democrat Governor and the sad state of the economy and jobs, or the lack of in Massachusetts, and there are the makings of a monumental turnaround.

Martha Coakley

If Brown defeats Coakley, making him the FORTY FIRST VOTE needed by the Republicans in the Senate to sustain a filibuster, look to the DeMarxist goon squad to do every single thing they can to delay Brown’s swearing in until after the Senate vote on health care. A lesson in sleazy tactics it would behoove the Republicans to learn well.

There are NINE DAYS left to the Massachusetts special elections. Scott can use all the help he can get, whether by way of contributions or phone work or whatever, and you don’t have to live in Massachusetts to help. Talk it up to your friends, get them to help too… this is OUR country…this is OUR effort.

This is happening all over the country, folks! DeMarxists, who even a few short months ago were safe in their sinecured little pork-lined fiefdoms, are rattled and sweating profusely as they check polling data which can no longer be spun to reflect anything but impending disaster. They are seeing the price of the MASSIVE sellout of the AMERICAN CITIZEN to the MARXI-SOCIALISTS of the Barry Hussein Presidency and the Pelosi-Reid cabal. Perfidy has its price and the AMERICAN PEOPLE are preparing to administer justice as we fight to protect our families, our homes, our freedoms and our way of life.

Israel’s Last Piece To The Puzzle.

RAHM EMANUEL has been running off with his Chicago tough guy mouth again. This time making Israel and the Palestinians quiver with trepidation over his threats on behalf of his boss, Ineptitude the First. I’m sure that a properly chastened Israel will immediately drop all concerns over security and little items like  survival and accede to the Anointed One’s command, “Peace now at any cost”.

MEANWHILE, in the world the rest of us have to inhabit, Israel may well have placed the final game piece on the board. It’s called the Iron Dome Short Range antimissile defense system. It has passed its advanced testing and will be deployed to combat units soon. Capable of shooting down Qassam rockets, Grad rockets, Hezbollah Katayusha rockets, Iranian short range Fajr missiles and even high trajectory mortar shells. Not only that, but the system’s computers and telemetry can differentiate between a target that will hit an unoccupied area and not fire on it, in favor of taking out one that threatens to destroy property or strike an occupied area.

Critics say it has not yet been tested in a combat situation and will not fulfill the role of destroying incoming medium and long range missiles. The system is designed primarily for distances of between four and seventy miles. A single missile battery will protect a medium sized city. The longer ranged defense system called magic wand is slated to be on line in 2012.

As the COWARDLY OBAMA drops any pretense of sanctions against the fanatical Mad Mullahs of Iran, even as their people riot in the streets dying for the freedoms OBAMA WOULD STEAL FROM US, the Israelis are finally no longer dependent on Washington’s vagaries for protection from it’s enemies. With the missile defense system in place the final game piece is also. Having penetrated both Syrian and Iranian airspace and tested the effectiveness of both countries’ air defense systems, time has just about run out for both. Israel has stated as a matter of national policy they WILL NOT permit Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.
It’s about time somebody started to pay attention….

Minus 85,000 Jobs – This Is An Improvement?!

So we get the info babe on ABC (radio) NEWS broadcasting that ONLY EIGHTY FIVE THOUSAND jobs were lost last month. “The good news is that the recession has turned the corner”.
WHAT?? WHAT!! Geez, give me some of what she’s smoking! How convoluted does your thinking and your grasp of reality have to be to spin that figure into something positive?

The Labor Department today revealed the really sad and frightening truth without intending to. Since His Emptiness Barack the First’s February stimulus, in the amount of THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY BILLION DOLLARS of your money, THREE POINT TWO MILLION PEOPLE are no longer in the workforce. That’s the bottom line figure. Three point two million jobs, in the face of billions and billions of precious national wealth taken and misapplied in a thousand different ways, sending the money into the hands of all the WRONG people for all the wrong reasons.

In the meantime, the BARACK HUSSEIN regime’s assault on the American people and the economic engine that actually drives job growth in this country, SMALL BUSINESS goes on unabated.
It’s SO bad out there that 661,000 people stopped looking for employment in December, even as Obama was trumpeting that his administration had “created 4000 jobs”. Umm, let me guess Obama… GOVERNMENT jobs, right?

I’ve heard Rush Limbaugh postulate that Obama’s real agenda is to utterly destroy this country’s economy in order to better facilitate the imposition of an extreme leftist socialist agenda as visualized by him. I’ve heard several GOP leaders state their fears in the same vein. Then Newt Gingrich just recently said much the same thing in a different way. This has been something I had under my hat but was unwilling to unload on Obama, even given my undisguised dislike for him. Accusing him of out-and-out counter revolution, against the revolution that formed this greatest of all experiments into the freedom of man, property, thought and religion, would be tantamount to accusing him of blatant treason against the people and the Constitution of the United States of America.
Frankly, in view of the cumulative evidence I’m less certain than ever that this man has the interests of the people and this country at heart.

Once again we have the issue: We are a people of laws and we seek redress through legal ballot – yet even now as I write, the ultra-sleazy Barney Frank is trying to put forth an automatic voter registration act that would guarantee the registration of potentially millions of illegal and illegitimate voters. Stealing the votes of honest taxpaying citizens.

Obama – Tough… On What?

We used to have a saying around the playground as wise-guy adolescents. “He’s tough ok, around the mouth”. This was generally used to describe a guy who was all talk, who would back off and cower to any half-baked bully who happened to come along. Striking simile to the Benighted One and his Clown College where it comes to the very first tenant of a President of the United States of America.

This bunch are as inept as it gets. It is really tragi-comic to listen to this boob go in front of the cameras ‘and talk tough’. While he is pontifically pronouncing his willingness to take ‘COMPLETE RESPONSIBILITY’ for security failures, one wonders how we would extend that to the numbers of dead Americans that are going to happen because of his imbecilic ineptitude. For deaths there WILL be.
Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter showed us and the world what a weak, pacifistic appeasement could do for a country. It gave us the fanatical Iranian regime and the world-wide jihad. The MAD MULLAHS only backed down when confronted by the reality of a no-nonsense American leader, who made it patently clear to them that the full strength and power of US arms was right over the horizon, had they continued the games with our embassy and our citizens that they had buffaloed the foolish, feckless Carter with.
Bullies, third rate dictators, mad or just semi-mad Mullahs, jihadists, foreign or homemade, thought twice before they messed with Ronald Reagan. The notable exception to that being the bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Lebanon in 1983, when Reagan had the Marines withdrawn in the aftermath.

Then with the advent of the FIRST “most ethical administration in history”, the bad guys figured out Billy Jeff in a hurry. In his best non-confrontational manner, Clinton quickly telegraphed his intention of handling obvious terrorist attacks against the country as a criminal issue, as opposed to an international terror network which had already adamantly telegraphed its declaration of war against the country, setting the stage for 9/11.
George W. Bush

George Bush kept the country relatively safe by keeping the terrorists pretty much pinned down in the middle-east and elsewhere. A number of would-be terrorist related attempts were thwarted during Bush’s tenure, mostly because they had been convinced that he WOULD FIGHT.

Now we have the SECOND “most ethical administration in US history”. (Please Lord, save us from a third). It’s Jimmy Carter and Billy Jeff rolled into one delightful fun package. Criminalizing CONFESSED terrorists into US courts just as though they were citizens with rights. Treating would-be mass murdering Jihadist bombers to ACLU attorneys, instead of a military commission and interrogation that may, just may, save more US CITIZENS’ LIVES!
Yes BARRY, you and your goofball security apparatus do so inspire confidence.
Gee…don’t we all feel so fuzzy warm and safe?

And The Beat Goes On – At Risk Dems Bail… And Bail…And…

We’ve been talking about this for months now. They can’t say they weren’t warned. In their headlong rush for the LEMMING PRECIPICE of self-destruction, the DeMarxists were repeatedly told, “there is a price to be paid for your self-aggrandizing power grab and your arrogant disenfranchisement of the American TAXPAYER…and TAXPAYERS ARE VOTERS!”

In their blind ideologue-driven hurry to enslave the freest society in the history of the world they forgot three salient facts. Fact – We fought to gain our freedom against immense odds and won. Fact – We continued the fight for freedom on every continent and on every sea on this planet in the two centuries since the founding of this republic and won. Fact – The American people will NEVER be separated from their freedom, now or ever.
Senator Chris Dodd - Going.

We kept saying then and say now that THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE PEED! We’ve been peed and nothing that has gone on has mitigated that in any way. Everything the DeMarxists and their clueless President Barry Hussein have done has just increased the level of fury waiting in the wings. That these people have blinded themselves to the true anger of the American people for the sake of their ideological coup is remarkable, given the politician’s usual penchant for self survival. But blinded themselves they have and receive our righteous retribution THEY SHALL!!

We are currently watching Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack-one-term-Obama abrogate every tenant of the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, in order to pass the health destruction of America bill. They seem to think we don’t understand what they are doing. What’s even more incredible is that they don’t seem to understand that WE UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING and why. Empires have changed hands upon the simple factor of underestimation, and one of the classic underestimations of all times is the contempt with which these DeMarxists and the Maobamists have held and treated the AMERICAN PEOPLE. “Don’t tread on me” is as true today as it was in 1775.
Rep. John Tanner - Going.

Reading the handwriting on the wall, Demarxist after Demarxist are leaving like rats exiting a sinking ship. Of course they are all saying it’s “to devote more time to their families”. Right. Guess what folks… it’s just the beginning. As the CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN MOVEMENT drags the RNC around behind them, forcing them into the new reality of politics in this country… STAND AND FIGHT OR GET OUT.

The DeMarxists are counting heads, votes and polling results and are quaking in their lying boots. There’s not a few so-called ‘moderate’ Republicans that are looking to get their devious rear ends booted out of there as well. We are going to wipe out this pestilent scourge on the American body politic, whether DeMarxist or a DeMarxist hiding behind a Republican facade.

Does Michael Steele Have The Right Stuff?

I have to confess I’ve been conflicted over whether Michael Steele was a true Conservative, or just another product of the go-along get-along Republican National Party we’ve so come to despise. I’ve swung both ways on Mr Steele. Early on he made what I considered to be some major blunders, in particular when dealing with the phenomenon known as the ‘Tea Parties’ and us homespun and rough shod Conservatives out here in the hinterland.

What he failed to recognize, which at that time eliminated him from my choice in the new Conservative party leadership, was that ours was not a flash in the pan movement and it was not a coalition of mythical right wing fringe groups, as the increasingly marginalized and ineffectual so-called mainstream press was trying to label us, that would fade with time. Some of the things he said reminded me far too much of some of the previous leadership which had brought themselves, and us, to ruin. Conversely, on a couple of occasions he did surprise me with statements that you would expect to hear from a true Conservative. I found myself wondering which Michael Steele was the genuine article.
Michael Steele

I’ve said that we needed courageous, no-nonsense political brawlers that would not only be willing but able to go bare-knuckled and toe to toe with the DeMarxists and not concede an inch. After all, it’s the exact style of politics that the opposition has been using on us for forty years or more. The problem with Republicans has been that they were always quick to back off of a point or accommodate on an issue the very second they were confronted, as to not offend someone or to stop from looking like the bad guys. Another big lesson Conservative Republicans have got to have driven home is to not allow the DeMarxists, or their lapdog cronies of the press, to DEFINE us. A lesson I’m not sure Michael Steele has learned. That remains to be seen. If you allow them to define you then they have taken the issues away as well.

Today I was lucky enough to catch Michael Steele’s interview with Mark Levin on Mark’s syndicated radio talk show. I confess to being pleasantly surprised. Michael was talking about his new book and it’s ‘twelve steps to Conservative victory’. Very impressive. I don’t think it’s quite that complicated but it’s a guideline and they’re all sound salient points.
What remains to be seen is if he’s the COMBAT COMMANDER we wish to follow. If he wants to lead us, then he’ll show us that he has the cajones for the fight. It’s like this Michael… Lead, follow or get out of the way.

More Democrat Slime Politics – In The Dark, As Usual.

In the long and honorable, if sometimes fractious, political history of this country, never have we seen such behavior as is being displayed by the so-called leadership of the once Democrat, now DeMarxist, and their man/boy zero sum President Barack Hussein Obama. Under the cover of dubious parliamentary procedure and what else?

IN SECRET, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are planning to try to meld the House and Senate versions of the health destruction bill in such a way as to cut the Republicans out of the process entirely and bypass problematic Democrats like Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak, who’s stated that he will do whatever he can to sink the final bill if it contains federal funding for abortions.
Bart Stupak

In addition, there are several Democrats whose support for the bill has been shaken by a strong dose of reality applied by their constituents during the holiday recess. Some might refer to it as a ROASTING. By way of example: Ben Nelson saw his popularity drop instantaneously with his cowardly rollover on the health care vote. Fifty five percent of his constituents would vote against him if his re-election were held now… a virtual death sentence to an incumbent. Sixty four percent of Nebraska’s voters want nothing to do with the Democratic health care debacle.

The Talking Points Memo website reported Monday that the Democrats in the House and Senate are saying the process will likely follow the path of the House taking up the Senate-passed legislation, amending it and sending it back to the Senate, which will have to pass it again. “This process cuts out the Republicans”, a house Democratic aide told Talking Points Memo, indicating the Congressional majority intended to make sure the Republican minority would “not have a motion to recommit opportunity”.

By blocking out the Republicans, to say nothing of the Democrats who disagree with them, they are setting a very dangerous course. One which may make the price of victory very expensive for the party come November 2010. With an increasingly angry electorate and an economy which has failed totally to respond to Obama’s pork-laden blandishments, America and Americans may put finish to the DeMarxists grand scheme. CONTINUE THE CONSERVATIVE MARCH TO VICTORY!!
