Enough of This Glumness
American Spectator, by Peter Ferrara

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/30/2013 6:12:25 AM

Conservatives are still glum about the election, and the upper hand President Obama seems to have over Republicans. But the political stage has been framed far worse for conservatives and Republicans in the past. In 1964, conservatives and Republicans were annihilated, when the conservative leader Barry Goldwater was crushed in the election by more than 20 points. Democrats held 295 House seats to 140 for the Republicans, and in the Senate, Democrats held a filibuster proof 67 seats, to 33 for the Republicans. This just 19 years after FDR had dominated American politics for a generation. The Republicans seemed dead,

Apparently this author thinks that we are upset that the GOP didn´t pick up more seats. The people I know are upset that the members of the GOP who are currently in the house and senate don´t seem to have a backbone or know how to stop an administration that is abusing their power and destroying our country in the process. Just said to my husband, we are now in a country that looks very little like the one we had just four years ago. My word people, never mind your "feelings.:

Good read again by Peter Ferrara, whole laundry list of things the Republicans can do to slice up obama and Dems.

Many here might quickly dismiss most if not all of these bright spots of sunshine "not gonna happen". Uhhuh, but the stock market continues to climb. Yeah, FED easing, injecting $80Bill/month. But seems the very smart money is comfortable with stocks. They like the future.

Maybe obama has met his Waterloo. Not predicting, just saying maybe.

Here is why we are glum. Anyone with a tenth of a brain knows that he will get to pick several Supreme Court Justices in the next 4 years. Look at his picks so far.

When that loose end is tied up the Constitution will be scrapped to the point that we will not recognize it. He will continue to flood the country with people who only want to get here and sign up for the government cheese.

You want glum, I´ll show you glum!

Why are we glum?
The Senate vote on Fn Kerry shows you why.
And #3 has it right about the Supremes.

My friend in the tax prep business has dealt with "low information" voters all week who can´t understand why they can´t get their $8,000 IRS check by Friday.

They make just enough money as a waitress to meet the max EITC.

He tells them "Obama´s stash" is empty, that´s why they have to wait till Feb 20. LOL.

Why be glum? If the Republicans manage to get something through that works, the regime will take credit. If they don´t, they will get the blame for everything that happens. And as long as the education system keeps pumping out lofos who believe the media, that´s the way it´s going to be.

Mr. Ferrara is conflating our ´glumness´ with the loss of an election, not the truth as we see it.........

We lost the Country.

Sir, we are well and truly living through history. Just like the Brits have plenty of octogenarians who watched as Britannia went UNDER the waves, we are now watching over half the Country ignore our demise and focus instead on free stuff and "The X Factor".

THAT is why we are ´glum´.

I´m glum because I don´t have anyone to vote for or a party to root for. I´ll quit being glum when the Democrats are kicked out of the Republican Party and the White House.

I get it that when the Feds dump huge amounts of cash into the economy that the price of everything goes up....but......just exactly how does this money get into the hands of the stock market speculators who keep bidding up the DOW.

And....where can I go to get some of it ???

You can speculate in Real Estate with mortgage money but how do you finance stocks without personal capital ?

What´s going on here ?

Did anyone see the ‘2nd Bill of Rights’ on FoxNews this morning. ‘The right to a productive job,’ The right to a house,’ the right to medical services’ are among them. Apparently Roosevelt tried to pass something similar to this in the thirties. About the same time the Soviet Union was writing its Constitution. And…surprise! They are pretty much the same! This turn to Socialism has taken a few years…but it’s in its’ final stages now.

Mr. Ferrara, the electorate was very different in the past.
Look who is voting now and look who they have elected for a second term. This doesn´t afford much hope.

Mr. Ferrara, Wish you were right, but you see, the American people are no longer up to Ben Franklin´s challenge. They are too stupid to keep their republic.
Wonder when and where God will try his next experiment.

In 1964 the democrats were still patriotic Americans. Today, they´re just a bunch of anti-liberty totalitarians who want to turn us into a third world country.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:19:38 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

The Coming Real Estate Hyperpocalypse:

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

Dems´ 2014 challenge: How to win when

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
