So Europe got the American president it wanted--the one who would present no threat to its own delusions. The United States is now officially one of us: an Old World country complete with class hatred, ethnic Balkanisation, bourgeois guilt and a paternalist ruling elite. And it is locked into the same death spiral of high public spending and self-defeating wealth redistribution as we are. Welcome to the future, and the beginning of what may turn out to be the terminal decline of the West. It has become clear why it was so easy to misjudge the significance of the apparently
Comments: Ms. Daley is (obviously) not a sugar-coater. I admire her pragmatism, even though it makes me physically ill to think about the US becoming the EU. Bush Two was President when I became an American citizen. Had my country been like it is now, I might not have bothered. Perhaps I´ll feel better after a few weeks. Or months. Or maybe not, I don´t know.
OP, we´re not finished. If we can get enough people awake to the voter fraud going on and correct it (Note 30 states have pubbie govs now) we can take things back through the ballot box. Failing that, we will take it back through the cartridge box. Granted our country is loaded with ignorant, citified, wussies and some call themselves conservative (yet know next to nothing about duty or honor or a citizen´s responsibilities in this great shining light upon a hill that we call America), but the country was formed through the efforts of ~25% of the populace. And the libtards actively working on our destruction are orders of magnitude fewer (relatively speaking) than what England threw at us back then. You just have to ignore the libtards propaganda as they work to convince everyone ´they won´.
Sorry for 2nd post but I just read a good piece by the Mail´s Simon Heffer:
and was reminded we have the 2014 elections, by which time people will realize what they have let themselves in for. And I also posted the Papa John´s piece, which indicates business owners are not happy (understatement).
#2, Thanks very much for your encouragement, I am truly grateful. I get a bit depressed when I read so many articles early in the morning but by noon, I´m usually in a more optimistic frame of mind.
The distressing part of the link are the comments which dismiss outright the thesis of the author who describes the results by race or ethnicity as they actually occurred. Then the immediate harkening to Clinton´s good economy, no thanks to him or his desires, but to the surge due to Reagan´s efforts and the Republican mid-term stop to his welfare statism.
My very elderly cousin, who is evangelical and listens to ministers preaching about the decline of our culture. She can document why it was occurring, but was still "undecided" two days before the election. I know she voted for Obama because she could not tie the decline to the Democrats and she wanted to make sure her benefits, including subsidized housing, remained intact. So to hell with the society; she has no children to protect.
It´s a cycle that every civilization has gone through; the Roman Empire, the French Revolution, the fall of the British Empire, the Ming Dynasty, the Hindus, and even the Mayans.
Just because we declared our independence from Europe doesn´t mean that we separated our cultures.
The ruling clans of every society get top heavy from the labors of the underclass and eventually topple to the Barbarians.
It´s simply our time, and after the fall, and the decent into the new dark ages, we will come back as states and tribes made up of individuals who cling together for their own personal protection and mutual benefit.
The Liberal, and the Conservative elite will starve to death from their own lack of survival skills and the spirit that drives the human race will once again be free until they propagate to the unsustainable levels of today.
It´s all about the Darwinian Theory, and it´s unavoidable. In studying zoology one learns that when you put to many monkeys in a cage, the normal societal regimen breaks down to the fundamentals of domination by the most savage. The thinning of the herd will occur, and the first to go will be the elite.
When all of this comes to pass we will once again be visited by a new Charlemagne who will gather the strong and vanquish the dark side for another thousand years thus beginning the cycle once more.
I don´t think anything short of disaster would cause voters entrenched in their identity politics or dependent on government work or entitlements to vote differently.
Obama was the least presidential president in my long lifetime; he never works, his wife is a grifter; he "rules" rather than executes the laws; the economy continues downward as intended and he won his base.
Whites and people who played by the rules are the stated enemy of this administration and still large numbers of white people voted for him which allows him to import more third-world "Gimmedats" to ensure Democrat rule. 2014 might give us a few Republican members of Congress; if elections are not even more fraudulent than now.
The article correctly indicates that argument or facts did not matter. I don´t think they ever will. The borders are wide open and soon Texas will be blue. Those that have been responsible, worked and saved, a minority, will be redistributed to those that have not.
It is hard to come to grips with our future. People I know are talking about a third party, but at this point it is difficult to regroup. In the meantime, a special thanks to Clooney et al for helping to create this demise.
OP, I too am an immigrant who became a US citizen. Unlike you, however, I came from a country that was taken over by communists by force. My experience brings me to an entirely different conclusion about what has happened here and where it is likely to end up.
Europe is made up of people who were content enough not to resist. Those who were not content either died fighting or fled elsewhere, and most prominently to America. So while Europe continues to accept its spiral downward into cultural death, I don´t believe America will.
America is made up of those who will not accept tyranny indefinitely. Resistance is literally in our DNA. The only question is when the overt action, the last straw, or spark will occur. Our first instincts are to let the peaceful options (elections) run their course. But peaceful options are not our only or last options.
The brazen redistribution plans of this regime (and yes, it is a regime and not an administration) will start the sparks flying this coming year. Where those sparks will land, nobody knows. But one thing I´m sure of is that American DNA will somehow be moved to conclusive action.
Here´s some weapons-grade drivel from the Government´s Environmental Audit Committee. (What else did you expect from a panel chaired by Tim ´Trougher´ Yeo?) Globally, subsidies for fossil fuels exceed $500 billion a year. They are inconsistent with the global effort to tackle climate change, providing incentives for greater use of such fuels and disincentives for energy efficiency. [Snip] We´ve been here before, haven´t we? Lots of times. This fossil-fuels-more-subsidised-than-renewables meme has been spread, inter alia, by the Guardian´s ludicrous Damian Carrington; by Labour MP Barry "Dork Brain" Gardiner (Vice President of the sinister GLOBE international);
Coastal towns across Britain have been left swamped after the worst tidal surge for more than 60 years forced thousands of families to evacuate their homes. Floods waters are reported to be receding after the North Sea surge hit the north Norfolk coast early yesterday evening and headed south throughout the night. But as residents started to return to their properties today, homeowners in the coastal village of Hemsby, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, were left devastated to discover their houses had been swept into the sea. The surging tide last night swept away a former lifeboat hut and a number
The overriding strategic story in Europe today is the breakdown of Franco-German condominium. The two great nations have together run the EU on a foundation of equality since the 1950s, always finding some way to bridge the chasm between North and South. It was stretched a little after France lost Algeria--a French Department, not a colony--and with it lost population parity. But that hardly mattered as long as Germany wished to tuck behind France, usually letting Paris take the lead. It was stretched a great deal further with the Reunification of Germany, driven home a few years later when a
Demcoratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made waves on Thursday by predicting that his GOP counterpart, House Speaker John Boehner, will ultimately ´cave in´ and green-light a comprehensive immigration reform bill. But Republicans´ frustrations ignore the fact that most U.S. Hispanics prefer their approach to the thorny subject over the Democrats´ central idea. Reid, a Nevadan, told the Las Vegas Sun that Boehner is ´going to cave in´ eventually because of outside pressure from Hispanic activists. ´I think there’s going to be so much pressure on the House that they’ll have to pass it,´ he said. ´If the Republicans ever
The U.S. Gross Domestic Product jumped by an annual rate of 3.6 percent in the third quarter of 2013, the U.S. Commerce Department said, surprising analysts who had forecasted a more modest 2.8 percent increase in the nation´s economic output. Commerce´s Bureau of Economic Affairs released its quarterly economic report on Thursday. Growth in the second quarter of the year was just 2.5 percent. That´s a dramatic improvement from the 0.12 percent growth during 2009, the first year of Barack Obama´s presidency. But it pales in comparison to the 7.71 percent average annual growth seen during the Reagan years.
The president and his supporters are pushing to get higher wages for American workers, but the nation´s largest pro-Obama organizing group is telling its footsoldiers not to expect a paycheck at all. Organizing For Action, which flexed its muscles as Obama For America during two presidential election campaigns, announced Wednesday that it´s seeking ´Spring Organizing Fellows´ to ´be a part of our growing organization´ and ´explor[e] OFA´s broad scope approach to issue advocacy.´ But unlike most fellowships, which offer a stipend or a housing allowance, the positions are strictly ´unpaid´ and require Americans to work ´without the expectation of pay,
An American chemistry teacher has been shot dead by gunmen in the Libyan city of Benghazi, security sources said on Thursday. The attackers shot a 33-year-old staff member of the Benghazi International School while he was out for a morning jog, sources said. He was originally from Texas. No one has claimed responsibility for the shooting. [Snip] The U.S. Department of State made no comment when contacted by MailOnline on Thursday. AFP reported that a 33-year-old man was shot dead in the central Al-Fwihet neighborhood of Benghazi. He was brought to Benghazi Medical Center where he was pronounced dead of
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
