Infantile Conservatism
Yahoo News, by Pat Buchanan

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 2/26/2013 6:31:17 PM

Regularly now, The Washington Post, as always concerned with fairness and balance, runs a blog called "Right Turn: Jennifer Rubin´s Take From a Conservative Perspective." The blog tells us what the Post regards as conservatism. On Monday, Rubin declared that America´s "greatest national security threat is Iran." Do conservatives really believe this? How is America, with thousands of strategic and tactical nuclear weapons, scores of warships in the Med, Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean, bombers and nuclear subs and land-based missiles able to strike and incinerate Iran within half an hour, threatened by Iran?

There are many, many, things I do not agree with Pat Buchanon on, but he is far more honest and insightful than Jenny Rubin are the Nationbuilding By Bayonete crowd that have dominated the party over the last decade. The term ´imperial overreach´ is lost on the Limbaughs, Lindsay Grahams, and McCains. Prudence used to be a conservative value.

Including Limbaugh with Graham and McCain is just down right stupid. It is becoming more and more clear why the GOP is in the state it is in. Good grief!

Iran is a threat because they know we would never retaliate if there was any danger of killing civilians......and they don´t care about their civilians.

How can Iran be considered a greater national security threat to us than North Korea, which has already developed nuclear weapons and missiles capable of delivering them to Hawaii?

In addition, we have an ally in the Middle East, Israel, which has a proven record of destroying nuclear facilities and has vowed to do so in the case of Iran, but we have no similar ally near North Korea that we can depend on to protect us in that area.

If Kim Jung Un, North Korea´s child-dictator, doesn´t get enough attention from the U.S. for his highly publicized nuclear tests because we´re too busy focusing on Iran which is still in the centrifuge stage, maybe he´ll get a little peeved and decide to send a loud greeting to Honolulu to wake us up.

Buchanan thinks in old ways about very real and present dangers. He talks about World War II conflicts (Japan, Germany) and Cold War delivery systems (missiles, air forces) as if these were likely strategies of choice for the modern terror state. Iran does not need missiles, ships, and planes to kill millions of us and inflict irreparable harm on our society. They need just one nuclear weapon and a few motivated individuals to deliver it. Terrorists cannot be reliably deterred by America´s retaliatory capability because they are stateless, anonymous, and insane. Iran knows many such individuals. An Iranian nuclear weapon combines Pearl Harbor and the Holocaust inside a single shipping crate and poses an existential threat to the United States of America. We cannot afford to lose a city in finding out that Pat Buchanan was wrong.

Our biggest concern for our country is not from Iran or N Korea, but from within due to the dumbing down of our society and perpetuating a populace that fails to be self sufficient as to their needs,

Relying on daddy government for total support of living requirements!

The idiot has apparently never heard of suitcase or backpack nukes. Or docking a ship with a nuke in the hold. Or plutonium powder in the water supply. Who needs an ICBM these days? I suppose Buchanan´s peers, the other 65 million year old dinosaurs, had never heard of meteors. Until they heard just the one....

The issue is not how many weapons we have. The issue isn´t how many strategic and tactical nuclear weapons weapons we have etc..... It´s America refusal to fight wars to win them. We have had "tactical nuclear" weapons for decades and can anyone really say we will ever use them? Nope we never will because we don´t have the will. It´s just that simple. I´ve heard for years about America´s nuclear might only to hear when suggesting their use that "we can´t do that because "they" will retaliate with theirs and we can take the chance." Or words to that effect. America will never win another war.

#9: Everything old is new again.

We will always have the threat you describe from the mid-east. Not just from Iran.

You are losing sight of the greater picture. In the end, THERE´S NO EXCUSE TO LOSE to these di** heads. We are America and we should not cower before anyone.

#9. Sunhan w/respect. You are far to insightful and intelligent to intone such utter nonsense. Iran´s capability to deliver such clandestine nuclear devastation, to our homeland, is a
non-existent fantasy of the Hollywierd gang, who make a very nice living promoting hysteria among our room temperature IQ types. Buchanan is on the mark while Rubin needs a brain scan.

Commercial jets, speedboats, small arms, underpants, and sneakers are the weapons of choice of the enemy. Yet we give Obama, Pannetta, Kerry and company billions in useless hardware as they champion gay marines and draft women. Pat is right on gain. Iran could be toast in twenty minutes, if we willed it.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

HealthCare.gov transactions fail

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

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

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

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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
