Why I´m Enlisting In
Andrew Breitbart´s War

Breitbart's Big Journalism, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/3/2012 7:50:54 AM

I’m enlisting to fight in Andrew Breitbart’s war. The political class in Washington has degraded America. Republicans and Democrats blame each other, and nothing gets done. The media exacerbates the problem, fans the flames and encourages false notions of “civility” and “objectivity” while pushing “bipartisanship” that doesn’t actually solve problems. While this charade perpetuates indefinitely, America grows weaker. She’s digging herself deeper into debt and isn’t even searching for solutions to her problems. Entitlements and government overspending gets worse every day while laws go unenforced

We all need join in whatever way we can. There are millions of is. It´s hard to take time for rallies, marches, town hall meetings, etc. but things have gotten so bad that we have to rekindle the passion the Tea Party had in 2009. I went to Washington and it was so inspirational. We need to demand town hall meetings all over this country and explain to our congressmen and senators who they work for.

America is slipping away before our eyes.

The author admits that he voted for Obama in 2008. If he was so blind and so unaware in 2008, he admits that he is simply too stupid for others to pay attention to him.

Cut the guy a little slack, he was only 21 in ´08. "If you´re not a liberal when you´re 25, you have no heart. If you´re not a conservative by the time you´re 35, you have no brain." So the kid is ahead of the curve.

Like Andrew and Saul on the road to Damascus, this author witnessed the TRUTH first hand and vows to fight the fight to expose the evil. It´s even better that he´ll pick up Andrew´s sword and go after those on both sides of the political spectrum who are corrupting the institutions of our government and culture.

It´s all about our inalienable rights and those who are determined to smother those rights by forcing big government into every crevasse of our lives. Our liberty comes from God. That´s why we must all pick up our swords and get back in the fight to protect it and save it from the political class.

I´ll cut him some slack for the Obama vote when he was 21....Afterall, I voted fro Ross Perot when I was 31. I cast that vote in hopes of waking up the Republican Party. It didn´t work, and we all suffered for such stupidity.

I shake my head at his 2008 vote, but considering the ´discussions´ ahead of him when he speaks to his peers, I´d say his punishment will be excessive. One thing about a reformed person, they are often more passionate and articulate about a subject after they´ve turned, so go nuts Matt. You will face the most willfully stupid people on the planet.

Give the kid a break. Like many others who made a mistake with a first vote for Obama, we need them to awaken and join us if we are to avoid another Obama.

The author’s lesson (and many others’ lesson) should be that vote is a powerful thing and should never be issued lightly. Those who voted for Obama have grievously injured their country, and that is not a trifling thing. It is something to be deeply ashamed of, with a vow to never do so again.

The media worked diligently to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone who didn’t read carefully and widely, and their sin, unlike that of the naïve, is intentional and unforgivable, if not downright treasonous.

But the author’s epiphany should be acknowledged, and his joining ranks with Brietbart should be celebrated. We’ll need him and more like him to win our country back.

I´m guessing that in 2008 he was ignorant, but not stupid. The stupid ones are all still right behind hussein. Don´t forget: Reagan was formerly a Democrat AND a union man. We´re all human. Well, not obama. He is Lucifer´s terminator.

Let us hope he really has learned this lesson and doesn´t do an about face when the media and Chicago thug political machine trot out their next messiah. Let us also hope that there are many other 20-something professionals out there who are thinking the same thoughts and feeling just as used and abused by the DC "politics as usual" machine.

The truth is... regardless of who wins, the DC political system and all it´s scurrying minions profit. The system is and has been broke for a long time.

With all due respect, #s 3, 4, and 16... Go back and read #15 about Reagan... and then the entire article, for he gets it... Unforgiveness only hurts you...

Plus, I met Andrew twice... and he would be the first to reach out one hand, hug him with the other, and welcome Matthew Boyle into our army for America´s soul!

Most of us only voted ONCE this past election. Thats why we lost. The other side found ways to count the dead, to count dogs and cats, and to count votes TWICE. Dont belive me? Then YOU are part of the problem, because VOTER FRAUD is why we lost...just ask that smirking chimp George Soros, he´ll ´splain it to ya.

I voted for Carter in 1976 at age 20. I learned my error fast. Voted for Reagan in 1980. Have voted for the most conservative candidate ever since.

So give the guy a break.

#s 3 and 4: Without repentance (turning back to the right direction) and reconciliation (welcoming back after straying) it will take generations just to restore parity between left and right. Besides, converts are often the most ardent and articulate defenders of their side, whether in faith or in politics.

Welcome back, Matthew. I threw my first vote away on Dukakis, went Libertarian in 1992, and was reborn Conservative in 1993.

Every governmental model has its own serious shortcomings (and for those who care, every model we know is contrary to the Gospel in its own assortment of ways). But big-government socialism is among the most oppressive.

Sorry, but never before in America´s history has there been a bigger, more dangerous and distructive mistake than Obama. So those of us who have also sinned (made a similar mistake) did not sin as much.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

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
