The Democrats' Rough
Re-entry Into Reality

American Spectator, by Ron Ross

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/20/2012 5:32:58 AM

Is there a limit to self-delusion? And if there is, what happens when the limit is exceeded? New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election.

Great article. Hope it becomes 'Must-Read' material here. Best line I've read in some time: 'When a liberal has a choice between fantasy and reality, he will choose fantasy every time.' And in 2008, we found the fantasy dwellers outnumbered the reality dwellers. Seems like reality is finally settling in on the Indies. Which gives us some hope for Nov.

I like how this man writes. His clarity and straight shooting is refreshing. My 'filter' did not get clogged with fluff nor did my smoke detector beep. Most of the time with conservative and always with lefties, I have to change the filter and install new batteries after reading several articles. But, Mr Ross writes to the point and persuasively.

Speaking of reality, a Romney win, even if accompanied by winning majorities in both houses of Congress, isn't going to be a magical cure all. The rabid faction of the left will start their offensive on November 7th and continue it until election day in 2016. Every bill introduced by Republicans, every submitted budget, every Romney appointment from cabinet level, to supreme court, to the lowest level will be anally examined and fought. Tin foil hat theories about Mormon church involvement will begin by summer and calls for impeachment will begin before Thanksgiving. We will have won the battle, but the war will have just begun and it's going to be a long war.

Zippy's 'destroy America' mask slipped the first time when he whispered to that Russian, but it slipped again and maybe fatally with this Benghazi debacle.

Even the ignorant and venal who fell for him in 2008 may now see him for what he is...though some of them may have agreed with him all along.

The real moral of both "The Emperor's New Clothes" and Obama is why both the emperor and his subjects refused to see the nakedness. The con men (media) told them all in advance that only the smartest and most worthy among the kingdom would be able to appreciate the beauty of the garments they were making.

Living in Fantasyville is a nice place to be, until the ruffians from Realityville move into town. They are then faced with what they denied for so long - that they were ill prepared for properly taking care of themselves. What a mess when you keep your head in a rainbow and never tend the garden.
It all falls down!

Let me finish that quote for you, Clint.

This article opens up a topic I am very interested in. Why is it that something which is so obvious to me is so hard for others to see? It is obvious to me that Obama is a fraud and a disaster for the nation yet the blinders come off so slowly for others - a major portion of the population. The 47 % that don't pay taxes now are not all lifelong takers but there is no doubt Obama follows a policy of making as many as possible dependent to guarantee their vote in perpetuity! There is more to it than dependency. The author mentions fantasy. It is OK for children to live in a fantasyland but adults should grow out of it. Many adults cling to fantasy and this is the roots of the Obama/Alinski power. Liberals love their escape from reality into fantasy - they cling to this and ignore anything that disturbs the dream.

The day Romney wins, I want to be a fly on the wall at The Forehead's house in New Awlin's. I'm remembering how, in 2008, he was chirping that the dhimmocrats would be in power for the next 40 years. Thank God he was wrong. What will it take for Americans to understand that when dhimmocrats are in power, bad things happen to us and this country. Look at the damage they have done to Social Security over the years. It wasn't the pubbies who did that, but according to the dhims, the pubbies was going to take it away from the elderly. Well, how close are they coming to that now?

Re: No. 4's post - I think that most of the country is more than fed up with the nonsense. We especially don't like being scorned & ridiculed by smug lefties who thought they were finally in power & it was going to last forever. I have completely lost patience with the "fantasy-dwellers" among us. I have even disowned several people in my family because of this - I saw for the first time what they really are. I know lots of people looking for work - here in the real world, I have friends & family who are really suffering because of present economic realities & we are NO longer in an indulgent mood. That is the same mood that created the tea party & it is not going away. A country can only afford to give affirmative action presidents a chance if the economy is STRONG. What's required now, is for real adults to apply some real solutions & get the country back on track - no more dreamers with "daddy" issues will be tolerated.

Mass 1930's-style rallies in front of the Brandenburg Gate? Even Britain's conservative newspapers still seem to be rooting for him to win the election. Only Putin, Netanyahu, and the Islamic Terrorist International leaders seem to see Obama for what he is.

I hate to disagree with the author, but no, Dims are NOT re-entering reality. Not unless they have discovered that there really is a Supreme Being that we call GOD. And they re-learn that there really is a Ten Commandments that was handed down by that same GOD. And that they really are COMMANDMENTS and NOT suggestions. For therein lies, IMHO, the crux of the matter. For decades now, far too many have been taught that there really is no GOD because we can't touch, see, hear, or otherwise know is HE exists or not. So, we really don't have to buy into this business and we get to make our own decisions about what is good or evil, wrong or right, etc.

Until these people return to the Creator of the Universe, they will continue on the same path.

The left will never take responsibility for their actions. If Obama loses, they will blame the messenger. Never the message.

There needs to be massive repudiation of Obama's policies, philosophy, and behavior.

Obama's policies have cost money, freedom, and lives.

Obama's philosophy is akin to Communism, Socialism, Marxism, and Islam. Distinctly Anti-American.

Obama's behavior has been awlful. He lies all the time, cheats, and is corrupt. He is vulgar. We have never had a president that made obscene gestures. He does not behave like a president in any way.

November 6 is 'Impeach Obama' day. He needs to be repudiated. I hope America wakes up and he gets less than 40% of the vote, and loses by over 30 million votes. I really think it is possible. That should be the reality Obama faces.

#13 and others -

Polite, well-meaning conservatives will ask how "otherwise intelligent" people indulge in the liberal fantasies. The answer is that you are beginning from a false assumption that they are intelligent. They are not. They are stupid. Simply put, our civilization has caried us too far from the wilderness and the unforgiving cleansing of the gene pool that used to be provided by natural selection.

The wide-eyed nature lover who went out to make friends with the pretty kitty got eaten by the saber toothed tiger and we didn't have to listen to him anymore at the campfire. The holier-than-thou pacifist who went out to make peace with the oogabooga tribe on the other side of the mountain never came back, sparing us any more of his dangerous drivel about "leading from behind." Stupidity used to just go away. Now we call it "Joe" and suffer through it.

Pretty good turn of phrase. The term libtard is not used lightly - these folks wouldn't last a week without the protection of a society that houses, feeds, and bolsters their self-esteem. Maybe they instinctively know this and thus that is why they cling so fiercely to a huge and overbearing government.

Contemptible John Kerry

New York Post, by John Podhoretz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/10/2014 6:03:12 AM     Post Reply
John Kerry, our secretary of state, is very angry with Israel. “Poof,” he said on Tuesday — describing how Israel destroyed his “peace process” the other week. Just like that. The first thing to say is that if a peace process can go “poof,” it can’t have been much of a peace process. Any serious discussion in which two parties are motivated to reach a negotiated arrangement wouldn’t be susceptible to going up in smoke all at once. That would indicate it never had any form or substance to begin with. And how on earth was it Israel who made

On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Just two days after video footage of him in a romantic encounter with a staffer became public, the state Republican chairman has tried unsuccessfully to reach McAllister by telephone to encourage him to resign, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. Meanwhile, in Washington, several top House Republican leadership officials do not believe the first-term Republican can survive this scandal. And the Louisiana Republican delegation — many of whom have not heard from McAllister or his staff since the scandal erupted — are beginning to sound

Obamacare is on the rise and on a roll again, as its backers will tell you, having passed the 7 million mark in enrolling the uninsured (although it´s really 5.9 million or so, and most of those enrolled had been insured already), but it´s back on its feet. "Can the GOP Succeed by Running Against health care?" ran the headline in Time, and the answer was no. "In the 7 1/2 months between now and November´s midterm elections, millions of Americans will be whipped into a frenzy over the purported evils in the Democrats´ health care bill, egged on by

The Obama administration has won an award named after America’s third president, Thomas Jefferson. That’s the “good” news. The bad news? The award is the “Jefferson Muzzle,” which the administration won for spying on the news media and limiting journalists’ access to Obama. The “coveted” awards announced Wednesday by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression are presented to people and institutions that engage in the most egregious affronts to the First Amendment. (No word on whether Team Obama was a unanimous winner.) As reported by AP, the awards are announced each year on or near the

Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups. Investigators also charge that

When ‘No’ Means ‘No’
National Review Online, by C. Boyden Gray    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/10/2014 4:48:55 AM     Post Reply
Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

What a miserable old blister Henry Aaron has become. In connection with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s lifetime home run record, he told USA Today that Republicans and conservatives who oppose Barrack Obama and his policies are racists, little better than ku kluxers. A sample: “Sure this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all the Republicans with the way he’s treated…back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.” Charming. In the

As Lori Lowenthal Marcus notes, Brandeis University has in recent years bestowed an honorary degree on Tony Kushner, who called the creation of Israel as a Jewish state “a mistake” and who attacked Israel for ethnic cleansing and for causing “terrible peril in the world.” Brandeis has also honored Desmond Tutu, who compared Israel to Hitler, attacked the “Jewish lobby” as too “powerful” and “scary,” and complained of the “Jewish monopoly of the Holocaust.” Unfortunately, that´s business as usual in the modern academy, including at an academic institution founded out of a special concern for the well-being of Jews in

If you suspect that politics might have played a role in the Justice Department bringing charges against conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, consider the financial support to Barack Obama from a key DOJ lawyer in the U.S. Attorney’s office that filed the charges. Each U.S. Attorney’s office has a lone District Election Officer (“DEO”). The DEO is the singular point person in each U.S. Attorney office for any matter related to an election or campaign finance. The U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York is the office which brought the campaign finance charges against D’Souza. David Kennedy is the designated

WASHINGTON — Two days before joining other presidents in Texas to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, President Obama tackled enduring inequality himself on Tuesday, in this case economic disparity based on gender. His action? Signing an executive order barring federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay and a memo seeking statistics on contractor salaries. If the photo-friendly ceremony in the East Room was not exactly the stuff of Mount Rushmore, it did reflect a broader question about the state of the presidency a half-century after Lyndon B.

This is practically old news at this point, but… come on. Via the Desert Sun: A new report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has labeled BrightSource Energy’s Ivanpah project a “mega-trap” for insects and birds that may get singed or in some cases, burned alive flying through the intense solar radiation reflecting off the thousands of mirrors surrounding three solar towers at the plant in eastern San Bernardino County. The Center for Biological Diversity posted the report to the California Energy Commission website on Monday as part of its testimony opposing BrightSource’s 500-megawatt Palen project, located east of the Coachella

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

RAND study: By our estimate, 3.9 million

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
