What we lost on November 6
American Thinker, by Greg Halvorson

Well, now that it's over - and it is, OVER - I might as well add to the requiem vault. I made this list Monday evening before the last vestiges of the Constitution were steam-rolled by Zombies, and the lamp of Liberty grew dim. Many good-hearted patriots are bucking-up, dusting off their Patrick Henry and Thomas Paine quotes, but the fact is, ObamaCare - a colossal, debt-driven nightmare - will, indeed, transform America (as per Obama's wish), and the radical quislings for whom he is sovereign will press forward on many fronts.

-Religious liberty and the Constitutional protection of moral conscience;
I STILL HAVE IT!

-Abundant, affordable energy--the key to economic prosperity and growth;
ITS STILL HERE WAITING TO BE HARVESTED!

-An American military capable of protecting our national interests and projecting power, when and where necessary, around the globe;
YES IT IS BEING DIMINISHED BUT ITS TIME WE STOP BEING THE WORLD POLICEMAN!

-Affordable, accessible, and innovative health care based, increasingly, on transparent pricing, choice and competition;
IT WILL STILL HAPPEN!

-A federal budget that averts Fiscal Calamity the result of massive debt;
THE CHORUS OF RAGE CONTINUES TO GET LOUDER!

-Education policies that prioritize parental wishes and that which is best, in respective states, for each child;
THE NUMBER OF CHARTER SCHOOLS CONTINUE TO INCREASE!

-Tax rates that encourage individual initiative and entrepreneurial risk, as opposed to crushing, punitive taxes that stymie opportunity and discourage endeavor;
WRONG DIRECTION NOW, BUT WATCH FOR A BACKLASH!

-Courts - including the Supreme Court - ideologically oriented toward upholding the Bill of Rights;
WAIT FOR THE BACKLASH!

-An immigration policy that values LEGAL citizenship and creates disincentives to hire aliens who take Americans' jobs;
WRONG HERE. THE LATINO POPULATION DON’T WANT ILLEGAL STATUS. THEY WANT LEGAL STATUS. ITS BORDER PATROL THAT NEEDS FIXING.

-The sanctity of Human Life as a national priority;
THE MEDIA TELLS US THAT IT IS NOT IMPORTANT BUT THEY LIE!

-The sanctity of Marriage as a heterosexual institution;
ITS STILL THE SAME ONLY WE NEED TO GET OFF OUR HIGH HORSE AND LET PEOPLE LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES!

-The sanctity of religious expression as a bulwark of American Life.
PEOPLE OF FAITH NEED TO TAKE A STAND FOR THEIR RIGHTS! BE PREPARED TO BE PERSECUTED!

STOP WITH THIS PITY PARTY AND FIGHT FOR YOUR PRINCIPALS!

#1 said......."An American military capable of protecting our national interests and projecting power, when and where necessary, around the globe;

It is the adoption of the Monroe Doctrine that is one of the cornerstones of America's make-up. Our defense of freedom and liberty is what made us that "Shining city on a hill".
To desist, we only provide the liberal fascist dictators the world over an excuse to allow their evil to flourish.

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

America CANNOT do nothing. It is who we ARE!

Comment #1 is nutty. Obama cannot be "resisted." The media will crucify any politician who tries. Furthermore, the media will call anything Obama does as a success, a great leap forward. Winning in public will now be out of the question.

However, winning in private is still possible. Order your own life. Take care of your own. Stay out of the public eye. Defend yourself. And keep your sense of humor.

That's how people in the Soviet Union survived. And throughout Easter Europe. If you have relatives who lived under that system, talk with them. They will have many good tips that will be of great practical help.

Just remember, keep your head down.

Way down...

I think we lost free and open elections.

obama figured out a way to game many of the voting machines (software within) or just the voting collation process. No way this was a low turnout election. Millions of republican votes were discarded.

Keep telling yourself that you'll have accessible healthcare while the death panel decides whether your elderly parent or your handicapped child need to have lifesaving care. The extra costs might bankrupt the system, doncha know? Keep expecting that you'll get choice and competition in your healthcare. Yup, that always happens with a single-payor system.

What's coming is slow, surly, incompetent and then practically nonexistent hospital and outpatient care. I hope you come from healthy stock or have money to get healthcare someplace offshore.

#3.

Being strategic in our thinking is far from doing nothing!..smart not big ...partnering with freedom fighters not dictators.

Let the world experience THEIR inaction not ours.
The UN is pathetic and needs to bear the responsibility of world consequences, not America.
We need to kick them out of NYC!

Your suggestion is to partner with others who do not value our freedoms the way our Founding Fathers did.

Wasted time.
Wasted lives.

Amreica's price of commitment must be earned not expected!

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration
Politico, by Seung Min Kim    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 3:08:34 PM     Post Reply
House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 1:34:30 PM     Post Reply
Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Ben Carson: White House wanted
apology for ‘offending’ Obama

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
