Why So Serious? Is
Conservative Despair
Justified?

PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/8/2013 6:15:35 AM

So last week, in what was perhaps a moment of madness, I posted a request on my Facebook page: Tell me your political predictions for the year. Among the more restrained answers: “Hyperinflation,” “Civil War,” “financial collapse,” “terribly awful things.” Optimist though I am, I can’t help feeling there’s something to this downhearted consensus. After living through the most peaceful and prosperous half century that any nation has ever experienced in the history of humankind, it seems impossible to believe we would re-elect a mediocre reactionary out to “fundamentally transform” our success into failure. But we did,

Comments:
This is a great, thoughtful piece and you won´t get anything out of it by just reading the bit that´s posted here. Also, at the end Klavan presents three trends that might be reasons for some optimism.

George Will takes the view that Democrats made a huge blunder in the cliff deal. Liberals apparently didn´t realize that it´s impossible to finance their social welfare programs without much higher taxes on the middle class.

Will enough Obama voters wake up to the fact that they have been played for chumps by Obama and the Democrat Party? Will they realize that Obama and the Democrat Party pose a genuine threat to the future of America and our children? Will they finally realize that everyone can´t be on the government teat, either as a public service employee or an entitlement parasite?

Obama getting re-elected is only half the equation. The other half is that there were enough zombie voters to put him back in.

The Democrats are rigging the system. They are allowing more illegals into the country with the ability to vote, they have taken over the ballot box thru voter fraud, vote machine manipulation, creation of a dependency population and dumbed down electorate. The GOP does not stand a chance unless it addresses these problems.

Everything that I´ve looked into seems to indicate that the Dems have a lock on National Elections for the foreseeable future - and possibly on loc al elections as they get bolder. This is entirely through massive election fraud. I´ve been able to talk to people in both Conservative and Liberal voting districts and Conservative Districts were generally massively interested in defeating Obama, while Liberal voters were largely apathetic - many hadn´t even paid attention to the fact that election day had come and gone. This does not jive with reported numbers, not to mention dozens of districts in critical swing states where Obama reportedly got 100 percent of the vote.

´Why so serious?´

Because there is only one solution that I can see to this tyranny. And that´s MY opinion.

The article is a good read, and his three ending points are strong, however...

The liberal-progressives/communist have a long history of denying reality. The fact that 52% of the voters supported He who must not be named to me indicates that a great segment of our citizenry join in this self deception regarding reality. I know that there were vote-fraud issues, but when no one contest a fraud, has a fraud truly occurred? How do you know?

Federalism may save us, but only if we can clear the lifeboats from the vortex that will be created as the failed ship of state sinks.

It is so bad now that the net immigration from Mexico is near zero.

Fatherless children, Obamacare, unemployment, loss of manufacturing base, crooked CEOs and Wall Street sharks, free housing, national debt, a weakened Military, liberal courts, green energy fools in agencies and media lies will overwhelm us.

Without societal collapse and rebuilding, we are done.

until some of the elected republicans in congress are vocal long enough and loud enough about the reality of washington politics the low info voter will not know that he/she has options. most people still listen to the free and well known networks and read their local paper (all liberal). the ignorance out there is astounding and republican leaders must talk and talk and talk about what is going on. eventually, they will be heard IF they will do that. unfortunately, the love of power and fear of losing their job may well keep most of them silent.

We offer candidates who articulate a compelling vision of the future not a return on to the past. Obama´s vision of the future is straight out a 1968 graduate seminar. Unfortunately for many voters Romney´s was from an Ozzie and Harriet rerun.

RE #17: True, liberals always overreach. Unfortunately, each time they overreach they set a new line of departure from which to launch their next offensive, incrementally advancing their cause. It has taken over 150 years for them to get us to this point. They will never stop.

Agree #19, but this time is rather different. Look at events in Europe: as socialism/communism has impoverished the countries and weakened their defenses, Islam has been able to take over.
I believe the Free World is in crisis.. and our Congress has "the love of power and fear of losing their jobs" (thanks, #14) .. that´s why so serious.

Klavan ... another "Reasonable Man".

The tyranny of reasonable men is how we got into this mess. Give an inch here, go along to get to a larger goal there, push back instead of break the mold ... reasonable men ALWAYS have a ready platitude for why our outrage is unreasonable and not "helpful". Reasonable men talk down to us like we´re idiot children even as they hand us a shovel reassuring us there really is a pony under all that failure. Just Keep Digging

The Tyranny Of Reasonable Men is the seduction of fear. Step out of line, the Man take you away ...

Klavan is telling us to go along to get along.

Thank our Lord the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence (at the risk of their lives) did not quail and become "reasonable".

The question I have been asking for the past 4 years is: "Are we Weimar Germany in 1932, France in 1788 or Russia in 1914?". Yes, "reality was on their side" too, but I don´t want to have to go through what they went through before things got better. I really worry about the next few generations.
The saddest part is that it all avoidable, but the low information voters don´t understand that.

Mr. Kalgan overlooks a complicit Republican Party leadership, either by design or by incompetence, who ends up supporting the destruction on the basis of "compromise", without having an opportunity to weigh the real impacts of what they do. They just go along to get along, with apologists along the way touting their genius to satiate the complainers.

If you believe the news stories, they chickened out of voting for a new Speaker, despite the evidence of Boehner´s discomfort, incompetence in being able to work with zippy.

The despair is because of the recognition that there realy aren´t anymore good guys.s now.

Fracking is wonderful but up to the states on whether it can used. NY decided they needed to rewrite the rules and are still going through a seemingly endless review process. TX decided their rules already covered the process and have doubled their oil production from 1 million bpd to 2 million. OH hasn´t made up their mind. Once you get oil and gas to the surface, you still need to pipe them to market. The feds do have some say in permitting pipelines, so even in TX they have to wait for approvals.

Good piece and not too long - even the inveterate headline-and-intro one graph posters may read it!

#17´s point is good. But if the majority of the voters subscribe to what the Liberals are giving (not selling) them, there could be no pendulum swing.

In the meantime, I am thrilled when Obie and the missus muff it in their own "mediocre reactionary" way. I like to think that each overreach puts another nail in their political coffin.

Reality may be on our side, but unfortunately, the dominant, ineradicable characteristic of every left winger is the inability to grasp reality, or, if by some fluke that lefty does suddenly come up against reality, he will immediately ignore and dismiss it, and retreat ASAP to his fantasy world.

I ´despair´ because the theory that America has survived worse times therefore we will survive this new direction is not really very comforting. I would rather not see if the interment camps of WWII will be repeated or exceeded. I don´t want to find out what happens if this government decides to surpass the Nazis in their zeal to confiscate every legal firearm. We have had currency crisis before and changed all the money, but not at this scale. The difference this time is now we have a mass brainwashing technology that will gleefully promote every disaster as great TV and it´s audience will clamor for more of the things that created the disaster.

The problem Mr. K. is that time is not necessarily on our side for the repair of the damage. Outside forces are encroaching as well as a change in the character of our citizens. Many of the people who vote in this country do not share our heritage and our past spirit means nothing to them. In addition, our press has failed us, and our Congress is not far behind.. oh, have I mentioned our Supeme Court decision on Obamacare?
Under the circumstances, it is a little hard to regroup.

All this talk about the Liberals overreaching, maybe very valid.

According to Dr.Jean Twenge, noted Psycologist, in her study on narccism,

´In the long-term, what tends to happen is that narcissistic people mess up their relationships, at home and at work, though narcissists may be charming at first, their selfish actions eventually damage relationships."

You can almost see it happening now with this president.

Klavan´s analysis is flawed because it assumes eventual rational action. The universal (over both time and space) response of socialists to the failures of socialism has been to apply stronger socialism. Obama’s re-election is proof of the dominance of that mechanism even here.

Sorry: I,like a few Ldotters above, am not so optimistic.

1. Fracking: If the EPA doesn´t shut it down outright, the rights will wind up with China and other foreign lenders to prop up a weak dollar and stave off collection of a soaring debt. Then the gas will be liquified and shipped overseas.
2. Federalism: A packed SCOTUS will neutralize states´ rights and unbridle the federal behemoth - all in the name of "fairness".
3. Reality: In politics, perception is reality. The media controls perception, and we know which side they´re on.

No, this is no time to take solace. It is time for hard choices what to do next. Our forefathers pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. The graves of the Greatest Generation testify to their sacrifice. What shall be our burden? Are we up to the task?

Voter fraud was marginal at best. More importantly, R´s controlled the Executive and Legislative Branches of virtually every battleground state! Simply, Romney was a horrendous candidate; feckless, inept and unprincipled. Stone cold reality!!!
Larger point is that the GOP leadership is a DC creature and viscerally hostile to conservatives. Their candidate will always be a lefty jackass like Schwarzenegger, Christie, Romney etc. Until the rank and file grasps this, the GOP will continue to get their kiester handed to them.

Fracking is definitely a very likely game-changer.
Which is a major reason for libnuts and greenho´s to fight it.

The U.S. is and will be the "Saudi Arabia" of natural gas... and soon of oil...
it has long been the Saudi Arabia of coal.

People in the U.S. will quickly get sick of the taxes and regulations of Obamacare.
They will hate the declining quality of life.
They will demand more choices and a vast prosperity.

Liberoids cannot deal with these reactions.
Only conservatives can deliver.

When Obamacare starts its oppressive rule in Jan. 2014, the rotten economy etc will
help us do the traditional thing in the midterm elections.
The party of the incumbent prez loses in the second term midterms.

We will soon own the House, Senate, and probably by 2017 the WH, too.
People who are upset now will enjoy the changes coming eventually for us.

We have a lot of silly doomsday posts continually.
There is no accuracy to them.
Just the usual whining.
Bet a number of them did not vote for Romney.
Look what you reap!

Posters #7 and #17 hit the nail on the head.

#7, Joseph Stalin, who was reputed to have said “The people who cast the votes don´t decide an election, the people who count the votes do” is on the short list of dictators and political strategists revered by leftists.

This list also includes Karl Marx, Mao Tse Tung, propaganda minister Joeseph Goebbels, Saul Alinky, and Richard Cloward/Francis Fox Piven. These people all share at least one trait: they have a talent for knowing how to tear down existing societies, but no clue how to build better ones.

#17, the leftist motto is “Always overreach.” This applies to the size and scope of government, any labor negotiation, expanding people’s “rights” and diminishing their responsibilities, and reducing our ability to defend ourselves as a nation and as individuals.

Leftists will never stop trying to push the boundaries of high taxation, overregulation, entitlements, and socially acceptable behavior, even after they reach the point of unsustainability.

If the leftist motto is “Always overreach,” their anthem is a ballad by Warren Zevon entitled “Laywers, Guns and Money.” The lyrics describe the misadventures of an irresponsible bloke who recklessly keeps pushing the limits.

“Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this”

When the s**t inevitably hits the fan, guess who gets to be Dad?

Sally Kohn explains “What I learned as a liberal talking head on Fox News” to the Christian Science Monitor: My time at Fox News was marked by meeting and working with some of the kindest, smartest, and most talented people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in life.

Parents of the ailing Connecticut teen held captive by Massachusetts authorities for more than a year are pleading with the bureaucrat captors to let them celebrate Holy Week and Easter with their daughter, whose health is failing under the state’s custody. “We are in communication with the Department of Children & Families and Wayside Youth & Family to see if Justina can attend Easter Service this Sunday,” said Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who is a Presbyterian minister and spokesperson for the Pelletier family. “There is no commitment from DCF, but we are still working on it.”

Last Friday, in a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference, President Obama proudly announced that the Justice Department had taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. The problem with that claim is that, since 2009, the Justice Department has taken on only 39 voting rights cases—and as former Voting Section lawyer Christian Adams points out, only 13 were related to protecting minority voting rights. And, with respect to some of the cases in which the department has been involved, it lost spectacularly—such as its false claim that South Carolina’s voter ID law was discriminatory.

U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen gave her first speech on monetary policy since she took office from retiring Chairman Ben Bernanke. Yellen made it clear she is was focused on moving Federal Reserve (Fed) policy back to the “Taylor Rule” that was first implemented during President Reagan´s administration and for the next 30 years resulted in a period of low inflation and high economic growth. Conservatives and the youth should be optimistic that America is moving back into that “shining city on a hill.”

How do I get you to pay attention to this story? I could type out a balanced tale about an incremental change in White House spin and message control, relying on your discernment, patience, and kindness toward all the creatures of the Earth. Or, I could say that Barack Obama is a cynical and manipulative liar. (Snip) The second would excite the emotions. Conservatives would approve. Liberals would denounce it and point out the exaggerations. My editor would smile because the controversy would attract more readers. This is trolling. I´ve decided against it, but the White House has not.

American-Israeli relations: US

Fox News, by Zev Chafets    Original Article

Late last month the United States introduced a U.N. resolution condemning Russia’s de facto seizure of Crimea from Ukraine. As expected, the resolution passed the General Assembly easily. Unexpected, though, was the decision by Israel, long America’s most reliable U.N. vote (and vice versa), to absent itself from the ballot. This shook up the Obama administration. National Security Adviser Susan Rice met with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and demanded an explanation. Lieberman blandly blamed it on a strike at the foreign ministry. What was he supposed to do, ask Israeli diplomats to cross a picket line?

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
