A Star Falls Over Chicago
Canada Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 10/24/2012 4:43:42 PM

The Obama Campaign, that strange 4-year marriage of Generation X hipsters, inner city bosses, suburban college educated boomers longing for racial healing, Big Green businessmen and shady Saudis, appears to be finally sinking beneath the waves. It isn’t going out in a blaze of glory, but with mumbles of trending topics. Obama was always a petty man and his campaign has descended into pointless pettiness, into Team Big Bird, binders full of women and bayonets and horses. Like so much hipster culture,

Another vote for "must read." Mr. Greenfield is spot-on, in his analysis of the Obama phenomenon... and his dismissal of the "hipster" Obama Faithful.

Reading this was like downing an icy mug of beer after mowing the lawn.

However, "being hip" requires enough knowledge and exposure to society to know how to pronounce words like, corpsman, and enough confidence to tell the truth.

Entertaining high school dropout hip-hop artists on the taxpayer's dime is definitely not hip, nor is shirking responsibility when no-one else has authority to wield it.

Dennis Miller is hip. Mark Steyn is hip for sure. Clint Eastwood has been hip since the 50s. Barack Obama has been pretend hip all along and the people fooled by him were pretenders too.

Another wonderful article like the "wave" one from this morning. Hope it's a must read tomorrow. Will be forwarding it far and wide.

Loved this line:

FTA: Like Pavlov’s dogs, they have stopped coming once they realized that just because the bell rings doesn’t mean that dinner or a functional economy will be served.

Zing!

(I do hope all this schadenfreude is not premature - but I have a strong gut feeling that we are all going to breathe that great sigh of relief after November 6... Have had it for some time. Romney just gives one a sense of comfort. He's a normal guy instead of a messiah.)

The ‘Before Obama’ and ‘After Obama’
history lesson for school children

With Common Core spoon-feeding school children a steady school-day diet of anti-American propaganda, it’s prime time for parents to school their own children in the true chronicled History of the one nation the rest of the world still cherishes as the escape hatch to freedom and liberty. Only yesterday, it was revealed that the Obama administration is planning on gutting the U.S. military to pre-World War II levels. Parents should turn the tables by using this latest Obama move as the impetus to teach their children how America can legitimately claim guardian of world freedom status. Make a homemade ledger marking it under

Footsteps of Ukrainian impeachment

The forced Parliamentary impeachment of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych just cancelled out President Barack Obama’s puny pen and telephone. Russian President Vladimir Putin was Yankovych’s pen and telephone, but with the entire world watching, the prime minister, who only three months ago made a deal in favor of the Russians over the European Union, has hightailed it for safer ground by abandoning the battle field. “Parliament on Feb. 22 voted overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych. Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in—328 in all—to oust the president. Following the vote, parliamentarian(s) stood and sang the national anthem.”

Almost a year after some 100 million cumulative views in the biggest selling TV on DVD in the past five years and the biggest miniseries of all time on DVD in its first week of release, featuring a Satan who had a passing resemblance to President Barack Obama, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett decided to leave the lookalike character out of their upcoming movie, Son of God, based on The Bible miniseries.

Know-Nothing Judges

Conservatives and liberty lovers pretty much take it for granted that liberal judges don’t know anything about the Constitution. That much seems obvious from the consistently ridiculous decisions made by left-wingers on the bench at all levels. Yet, it is somewhat jarring to come across a liberal judge who is so un-knowledgeable, so uneducated, so thoroughly ignorant of the foundations upon which this country was built that she literally does not know what the Constitution actually says, “A federal judge confused the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution Thursday night in a court ruling which overturned Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriages. “In

The 44th President of the United States is a non-stop talking Teleprompter, a pen and a telephone; a creature straight out of Science Fiction around whom no one seems to know the way out. Leading a hostile and openly anti-American administration, whose trademark is dropping a shock a day, he uses the technology of social media to force his will not only on a captured-by-Marxists America, but on what was up to his 2008 election, the Free World. The corrupt world domination-seeking United Nations and the falsely-named Arab Spring have flourished on Obama’s watch.

What do Socialists gorge on while their populations struggle through failing economies?

Not from Russia, which could be mistaken for approval of Vlad the Terrible, but the kind that is “harvested from Illinois streams”.

The Unheralded Return

The unmasking of Michelle Obama the ‘returned activist’ went down in history at a Virginia high school on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Five years into the Obama regime, Michelle came out of the White House as the activist she’s always been to instruct high school students that they are entitled to “free” government handouts. “Don’t leave money on the table,” she said. In a personal trajectory that went from telling kids what to eat to teaching them how to game the system, it’s no longer encouraging students to be the best they can be but how to get the most they can

Incredible how Fox News Corp. talking head Bill O’Reilly—America’s biggest, television talking head who’s out there professing “Obama’s not a bad guy”—thinks he can get away with ‘pin-heading’ John Boehner for “pandering to radio talk show hosts” on amnesty. Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time. Boehner finds no comfortable quarters from radio talk show giants Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or Mark Levin, who continue to castigate the guy who’s a dead ringer for the cowardly lion in the Wizard of

If the entire Congress is willing to give President Barack Obama a pass on being a Marxist/Socialist, why shouldn’t the allegedly right-of-centre Fox News Corp. comfortably do the same thing? Whitewashing the fact that top Fox guy Bill O’Reilly said of Marxist Obama: “He is not a bad guy. I think people misread him”, Fox News followed O’Reilly February 2nd interview by heaping praise on him for “asking the right questions”. If there was any chance of Obama answering the “right questions”, he would never have shown up for the Fox interview. Planting doubt in the minds of viewers that Obama is only

Fox News Corp. and President Barack Obama have something in common: Both believe their popularity allows them to continue to con their audience. In the lucrative pretend world that politics and cable television networks play to, the world becomes their oyster. Last night’s well-touted spar between garrulous O’Reilly and Obama had all the makings of a wrestling match with both wrestlers bouncing rubber-like off the ropes—all show but no headlocks. If anything, Fox viewers should now seriously consider what Fox is presenting as ‘real news’. “Prior to the interview, O’Reilly told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that he was “not nervous”. With presumed questions already submitted and

Progressives Without Progress

Posted By: snowcloud- 1/31/2014 11:51:30 AM     Post Reply
There isn’t very much progress in the progressive movement. Progress is the expansion of possibilities. Progressives however have a Malthusian obsession with the scarcity of all things. They believe that we are about to run out of everything from energy to water to wealth and education and that like starving survivors on a lifeboat we have to redistribute everything. The progressive outlook predates the notion of progress. Its ideal is a static society, sustainable in its material practices and so utterly moral in its social attributes that it becomes immune to change. It is founded on the intertwining of the material

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

Audio of an internal VA meeting obtained by TheDC confirms that VA officials in Los Angeles intentionally canceled backlogged patient exam requests.“The committee was called System Redesign and the purpose of the meeting was to figure out ways to correct the department’s efficiency.

But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age.

Mitt Romney on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging the Arizona governor to veto a bill that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people. The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it. Brewer told CNN she would weigh both sides before deciding the right thing to

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress. If a president were intent on covering something up—something big, such as an illegal gun walking operation to Mexico or a dereliction

Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman is pushing for legislation that would ban openly gay athletes from the National Football League, spurred on by the recent news about Michael Sam publicly coming out. He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
