This race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly. To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national tracking polls, finding a level at or above 50 percent in many, and closing the necessary gaps in swing states and among demographic groups. Greater evidence can be found, however, in Obama’s sour demeanor and the conduct of his campaign. What a mess.
Here's a little prediction of one of the conspiracy sources: the total number of votes cast for president will be less, much less, than the number of people who voted. Many black voters will turn out to vote for their congressman and other down-ticket offices, but will not vote for president. Unable to bring themselves to vote for Mitt and be first-time Republican voters, they will nonetheless refuse to vote a second time for Obama, the charlatan who fleeced them and abandoned them. It's a simple explanation that the left will refuse to accept.
2, I'd like to think that you are right about the black voters feeling abandoned. Obviously those with their free cell phones don't feel that way, but let us hope that that ignorant cadre is in the minority.
Given there is a win and a potentially crime ridden lame duck suicide run by obozo it would be the perfect time for The Donald to offer the same 5 million dollars again to more whistleblowers in smaller payments! He'll pay to make public the insane things obozo will be doing in the last few months of his royal reign, and he'll be the kindly judge of what each horrifying act is worth. O's own insider staff jumping ship, will gladly go public on obozo dirt. Go Donald !
I'm with #4. I love the conspiracy theories. The drama queens on Facebook will be wild.
Remember the recount in Florida and Bush v. Gore? I love deflating liberal fantasies by reminding my friends that if Gore had carried his own state of Tennessee he would have won the election today be the Former President AlGore.
Rather risky to assume a Romney win at this point. Anything that lets people assume they don't have to crawl over broken glass to get to the voting booths on Tuesday will only help Obama. I sincerely doubt the MFM will be sitting on its corrupt hands between now and voting day, passively awaiting their own defeat. Any "unforeseen event" in the next 7 days must be viewed as a potential trap or trick by the MFM/Obama campaign. Anything.
Uh, the storm distorted the election! Uh, it was Sandy who stole victory away from me. Uh, gee, didn't that storm hit the east coast? Isn't that where Romney is from? He caused that storm! Uh, he's so rich he could make that happen. Uh, all those states that were hit by Sandy? Uh, they should be allowed to revote.
(Uh, tell me what else to say, Mr. Soros, sir. Now that I've got everyone's attention. What? Oh, right. Good one, sir.)
Uh, great workers of Solyndra, unite! Uh, before I leave office in a few weeks, uh, I'm gonna sent you one trillion dollars from the US taxpayers for more of those sun power panel things, or whatever it is you didn't make. Uh, you didn't make that!
This is the delicious part.. FTA "We often see leftist orthodoxy morph into popular convention. This is because, while there are some smart people on the left, it requires almost no thinking to be a liberal. Simply absorb the political sentiments you hear in almost any Hollywood film, or on most any television program or newscast and, presto, you’re in. Repeat these nostrums at school or work and you will be rewarded. Augmented by the emotional satisfaction of the left’s perpetual righteous indignation, this dynamic becomes self-fulfilling and very cozy."
I just hope the outcome is what they say.. I will sleep a little better next Wednesday.
Do not take anything for granted. Vote and work as if we are trailing in the polls. The left would love nothing more than to repress voter turnout. I will not rest easy until the votes are counted and Romney is declared the winner. I am optimistic but also a realist who doesn't trust anything the left says. My plan is to pray, vote and hope that reason and sanity prevail.
After the election, will there be an Office Of The President Defeated? Will Valerie Jarrett's title be adjusted to Special Assistant To The Lame Duck? Will her Secret Service detail be replaced by domestics at the ready with tissues and dust pans? How about Michelle? Will she and her entourage be under constant observation by agents trained in shoplift prevention?
FTA "Certainly, a resounding win will foreclose the Democrats’ propensity to steal close elections through after-the-fact chicanery (presented as Exhibit A: Al Franken is a senator) This is why we need to vote in HUGE numbers on Tues.
Hopefully we aren't jinxing ourselves. My crystal ball... I see numerous recounts and civil rights lawsuits (Holder ain't going down easy either). I see many Sharpton and Jackson joint news conferences. I see a dangerous lame duck Senate working with a lamer (and more dangerous) duck Obama. Whether there is civil unrest depends on Obama.
I hope Theo Caldwell is correct. However, my wife works in a building where an early voting office is located. Everyday day since they opened 3 weeks ago there was a line around the block of mostly black voters, all looked like Obama supporters.
Obama and his administration will use every trick in the book to hang on. Even if things look hopeful there needs to be a big landslide to get rid of this bitter clinger! Keep up the effort everyone, election day is just one more day in the battle to get Obama out of office!
At this late date I still don't know. I feel that Romney is going to win the election, but I can't shake the feeling that the Dims will pull something that could change the outcome of that which the majority will have voted. You know. Cheat. That's what they do. Especially in states that are close. As we all here know, these people will go to any lengths to win. And that includes any and all illegal tactics.
I know that some of the despair I feel at times is brought on by the junk that Dims are put out for the express reason to suppress the Republican vote. But, at least for me, it won't work. I've already voted!
I won't believe this election is over and Romney has won until Obama publicly concedes. And right now I feel like I did before the SCOTUS decision on health care. Remember how there was no way it could be held constitutional in a rational world? Well, in a rational world there is no way Obama could win, but clearly that's not where we are.
Re #39 Yes, everyone is a little uptight over Christie's embrace of Obama. I think putting politics aside should be expected to happen in the face of disaster. I remember all the hugs Dubya received from Dems right after the original 9/11........but the love soon evaporated.
So do we continue to fight the partisan press for President Romney? Who else can whip them into line but the people? Time for the people to stand and deliver still IMO.
Even with reporters like the dude at Buzzfeed lay in wait for a President Romney to make a gaffe or something they can spin into a gaffe, next president, Romney, is not media shy like GWB and he seems to not mind talking over them to the people. But don't expect him to demonize democrats like the abysmal partisan president we now endure.
Never underestimate the commies ability to "fix" things the way they need them. I will be apprehensive until the results come in November 6th/7th. Nothing is settled until then.
And even then, if the results are good, the task of ridding the WH of the anointed one will be like pulling teeth (no anesthetic, of course). A herculean chore followed by nearly a million other chores to rectify the damage done to our beloved country.
Interesting, I received an email today saying that the question is not The pResident having a 2nd term, but a third because you know sitting Presidents never loose their 2nd elections.... Wondered if that was to cause the effect that the West coast experiences every election with final results from half the nation posted hours before our polls close. Doesn't change my mind though.
Just like all of those people who voted for Obama the last time and wanted to be a part of something big and momentous I will crawl over broken glass to vote for Romney even if he is up 20% in Monday's polls. I too want to be part of something monumental - voting this socialist out of office.
For the sake of the future of our nation, we had all better hope he is right about his prediction of who will win and who will lose this election. There has never been a more important decision for the American people in our entire national history!
Communist like agitation, redistribution, and the big one..... stealth. Obozo's union style organizations that have had so many names, those are the ones to worry about, none of THEM have been polled. One above reminded us to scratch our way to the polls and vote....it ain't a sure thing til all the cheating and electronic fraud has been exposed. LBJ and Slick Willie (as great a liar he IS) both look like light weights compared to our present raging, mad, vindictive un unresolved child.
If it really does end with a Romney win (Let it be, Lord...let it be!), where will AFI take the obamas on their final tax-payer-financed luxury jaunt? They've been everywhere...oh...except the mideast. Perhaps they could visit our troops in the "sandbox." Nah...that's not cushy, not plush enough for the o's.
Romney will win. It is God's will. This Nation is at a frightening crossroads. This election is in the hands of God, and he expects US to work through Him. Hold firm in your Faith; vote, and encourage others to vote for Mitt. I am not mistaken that those open to such things can see, and sense, that Mitt Romney is radiating a light of Protection.
I watched MSNBC yesterday and Tingles was practically sobbing into his morning Starbucks toddy. He stated something to the effect that Obama can win now "ONLY if HE (BHO)believes and HOPES (his emphases) he can win." Tingles has the inside dope, no doubt. Otherwise he would have had that insipid smirk on his face. Ditto the android pawning herself off as a lesbian.
Many of the above posters have it right....we must watch for any "foolishness" at the polls. Document anything that looks out of line. Take pictures of all those involved. If they object to having their pictures taken, tell 'em you're doing a documentary on fair elections. We've come too far to let these ruffians steal the election from us. We must pay attention and be prepared. Load mags and clips, clean bores and lock and load!! We are saving our nation!!!
Crawl, run, walk on water or whatever it takes to get to the poles and vote for Romney because we need a BIG majority so Obama can't say that the votes are not counted right. Please people, lets throw him out hard, very hard.
We don't have to worry, as #54, about "the Republican Party" counting the votes. Turns out - we _are_ the party and we _can_ be involved.
I just signed up to be a poll watcher. I am looking forward to the adventure and will report back anything I see here in the blue state of MA. They are sending me not to a poll in my nice suburban town with all its Scott Brown signs, but to nearby Lowell which is one of the blue spots.
No. 30 unfortunately has it right, if Obama loses there will be riots in the streets and not just in the northern and west coast cities either. Everyone has been buying gold as a hedge against a larger depression which will surely come in O's second term. I am not buying gold but ammunition because if he wins again that ammunition will be just as valuable as gold. Not to mention the fact you will need it for personal protection. We are in a no win situation no matter how this election goes.
Well I hope this will be over soon. I'm tired of being lied to, I'm tired of a government with no honor - and no shame, and I'm tired of my wife feeling like she has to hurl every time she sees Obama on the tube!
It was a sunny day in Beijing on Thursday—refreshingly sunny, to be more precise—when Vice President Joe Biden met Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. I know this because I have read the pool report of the occasion, a pithy and practically content-free piece of journalism that is nevertheless one of the more entertaining things to enter my inbox in recent days. The pool report confirms the lingering suspicion—if it hasn’t been confirmed a million times already—that the line between journalism and Democratic Party cheerleading has more than faded. It has become invisible. Pool reports are summaries of official events distributed to reporters,
W hen unexpected events happen — be they natural disasters or terrorist attacks — the consequences can be dire. As a result, governments have gone to great lengths to prepare for the unexpected as best they can, stockpiling scarce resources in case supplies get cut off. The most famous example is the United States’ Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). With a capacity of 727 million barrels of oil, the SPR is the largest stockpile of government-owned emergency crude oil in the world. Established in the aftermath of the 1973-74 oil embargo, the SPR is meant to offset a potential disruption in commercial oil
When Barack Obama was catapulted into the Oval Office in 2008, it was with the help of millennials who turned out in record numbers and voted for him two-to-one over the GOP’s John McCain. Now his signature issue — ObamaCare — is in deep trouble. Once again, he is looking to America’s young to come through for him. Once again too, he’s relying on a campaign of speeches and public appearances to get them to do so. But in sharp contrast to 2008, he’s making his new appeal to a much more jaded demographic. According to a Harvard University poll released this
Amid growing outrage at the Obama administration’s determination to strike a deal with jihadist Iran that not only allows Iran to enrich uranium but also permits it to continue imprisoning and torturing American citizens, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke up to defend his State Department’s diplomacy. During a press availability at NATO headquarters, Secretary Kerry said this regarding Obama administration efforts to free Americans held captive overseas, including Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen held in Iran simply because of his Christian faith: One day is too long to be in captivity, and one day for any American citizen is more
Russian President Vladimir Putin said this week that U.S. military capabilities in the Arctic Circle leave his government little choice but to maintain a strong foothold in the frigid north, where tensions between the former Cold War adversaries in recent years have heated up as the polar ice thawed. During a meeting with students in Moscow on Tuesday, Putin was asked whether Russia and other countries might loosen their grip on Arctic territory for military exercises and exploitation of natural resources in favor of environmental preservation. The Russian leader replied that the United States hasn´t slipped off the ice shelf and implied
It may sound a bit dark, but it’s now possible to transform the ashes of the cremated deceased into a diamond–a jewel truly to remember. Using “Russian technology,” Algordanza Memorial Diamonds are created in a similar fashion to the way natural diamonds are formed. Here’s how it works: a diamond is composed of pressurized carbons. Conveniently enough, human bodies are about 18 percent carbon. Using about a pound of ashes, the firm is able to distill out the carbon and use it to form a man-made diamond in a mold under high pressure in about a week. The diamonds created this
The big talk is just how many seats will the GOP pick up in the Senate next year, and we’ve spent a lot of time right here talking about just that. But how about the House? We do still have a bicameral legislature, even if it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell them apart. The House is in the strange place where although it’s almost universally reviled, not much is going to change. Yes, gerrymandering is a part of that, but it isn’t the whole story. People are fed up with Congress generally, but with ObamaCare specifically and increasingly. To punish the
The president calls income inequality the ‘defining issue of our time.’ So it seems fair to grade him on his success at addressing it. By any measure, he has failed spectacularly. Maybe it’s the Christmas season. But when December rolls around, President Obama’s thoughts seem to turn to income inequality. On December 6, 2011, he gave what the White House billed as a “defining” speech on the subject in Osawatomie, Kansas, site of a historic address by Teddy Roosevelt on “New Nationalism.” In the 2011 speech, Obama began by painting a portrait of the 1950s and 1960s as an ideal period in American
Detroit is declaring bankruptcy while its city council considers contributing public money to build a new Hockey Stadium for the billionaire owner of the Red Wings. While Judge Steven Rhodes was trying to figure out if the city of Detroit could declare Chapter 9 bankruptcy, the Detroit City Council was also doing some thinking. Should the council kick in about $45 million of city funding towards the $650 million entertainment complex that would include a residential section and a new arena for the Detroit Red Wings National Hockey League franchise? The city council decided not to rule it out and has a
Calling himself a “scapegoat” for a political hiring system that continues to this day, Chicago’s convicted former Streets and Sanitation commissioner Al Sanchez filed nominating petitions Monday for a seat on the Cook County Board. The longtime head of the Hispanic Democratic Organization (HDO) Southeast, Sanchez is just five months removed from the federal prison camp in Marion, Ill., where he lost 50 pounds. He spent 2.5 years there for rigging city hiring and promotions to benefit soldiers in HDO, a now-defunct army of political workers that helped to elect and re-elect former Mayor Richard M. Daley. Monday was the filing deadline for
Probably the most jarring election story of 2013 was the successful recall of two Democratic state senators in Colorado. Both represented districts that had voted for President Obama by wide margins: In the recall, Angela Morse ran 15 points behind the president, while John Morse (pictured) ran 12 points behind him. These were extreme cases: low-turnout recall elections where the pro-recall forces were unusually energized by the gun issue. But they highlight what is probably the most troubling indicator for Democrats right now as we inch toward the midterm-election season: The drop-off in Democratic performance in elections this year -- Democrats
Earlier this year, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel took over the top jobs at the Department of State and the Department of Defense, respectively. Since then, Kerry has been hyper-active. But whatever happened to Hagel? He has impinged on our consciousness only once, as Kerry’s sidekick during congressional hearings on authorizing an attack on Syria. The impingement was slight. Kerry and Gen. Dempsey did almost all of the talking. Hagel was content with silence except for an occasional misstatement of fact (the Pentagon had to walk back his claim that Russia supplies Syria with chemical weapons). Presumably, Hagel was under orders to
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
