With reports of voting irregularities in several battleground states, we might never know who actually won the 2012 election, but we do know for sure that it is Barack Obama who will occupy the White House for the next four years. And now we will find out if countless patriots at Tea Party rallies around the country were on to something when they voiced the fear that America will not survive four more years of Barack Obama. For those mainstream Americans who were alarmed enough at the radicalism of the Obama agenda to get involved in politics for the first time in their lives,

I worked as an election judge in a predominately liberal-black neighborhood. The turnout was HUGE. I am not exaggerating to say turnout was over 85% at this location. The vote was over 92% for Obama. What do socialist/Democrats offer them? Promises of everything and anything? What do conservatives offer them? The possibility of success after hard work and risk.
They voted for socialist promises. Indeed, the Republic is lost. Welcome socialism.
Or rather our faith in the innate good sense of the voting public was misplaced. Because they take baths with some regularity and drive to work each day (those who still work, anyway), it was also assumed that most still possessed critical thinking.
But alas, critical thinking is no longer a basic requirement to vote, if it ever was. Glaring malfeasance of office by those in high positions, bad public policy followed for ideological reasons, and sheer incompetence are no longer regarded as any restriction or impediment to retention of elective or appointive office.
Like Samson, we can only strive mightily to bring down the Temple of Dagon upon the Philistines' heads.
This was Obama's mantra in the last debate.. send in the teachers as the solution to every problem! Sadly the stupid brainwashed outnumber the patriots and producers who love freedom. I didn't want to believe those final polls but they were correct. Too many drones who will never understand why things are so bad and getting worse every year. They are the ones who trade freedom for security and get neither.

#1, they turned out to keep the free phones coming. And the fact that 70% of black children are raised by a single parent, they got off their butts the one day they had to, to keep their baby daddy's (GOVERNMENT) check coming on the first of the month. Race relations in this country are irretrievably broken, because blacks vote for free money for themselves.Taken from us.

All I can say is, I am very depressed. I will cling to the Cross and to the promise of Jesus that the Gates of Hell will not prevail. There may be bad times ahead, and I fear deeply that there's a spiritual rot in America that will come back to haunt us.
As for me, I will hold to His promise and "be not afraid"
Today, I had hoped to change my user name to “Heal America”. That will neither be necessary nor possible. I believe this great nation has been sold to the worst elements in our society; those who will continue their willful destruction of our culture. What can we do? Show faith and determination, and resolve to expose the Socialist/Democrats who now rule our once-great republic for who and what they are. And, yes, to continue our fight to Take Back America.
The left's maro brainwashing has been going on for 50 years. What kept them in check was older more conservative voters. Those voters are dying off and being replaced by the handout society voters,who couldn't care less about tomorrow,much less next year or 5 years from now. It's about instant gratification.
I mean how many people are virtually retired in their 20,s never having contributed anything to this country. Meanwhile you have other fools driving to work everyday,putting up with moronic bosses and traffic jams to have a marginally better life than the bloodsuckers.
It's going to get a lot worse. Obama is going for revenge against whites more than ever now.He'll find your assets and steal them to keep the freebies coming to the worthless underclass.
Obama is only one man, there is no way he could have pulled this off without the total and complete corruption of the MSM. They are the ones that have my contempt and hatred. They are the ones that sold their souls and abused their credibility for money and glory. They are the ones that gave away our birthright. Yes, there are other bad actors in this Greek tragedy, but theirs was the responsibility to inform, not to conform. Treasonous, cowardly and corrupt. When the enemy takes over, they will be the first to go, and good riddance.
Remember the media. Cancel any subscriptions to any media. Why would you want to support their nefarious activities? You'll need that subscription money anyway. Do not register online with any media--the more who register, the more advertising dollars they make. Never mind how much you like the publication, unless it's National Review or Washington Times, it doesn't like you. If you really can't stand to lose a magazine, go read it at Barnes & Noble or the library.
Obama's ad expenses were in the region of $265 million; Romney's around $110 million. You cannot counter lies about the candidate if you spend less than half of the amount he spent.
Obama had the services of an unmatchable data-mining operation. Those whose phone numbers were in it knew They knew who they were. Conservatives need to found their own operation, no other way to counter this. (And not as a private company, make it a political foundation--the data-mining company used by the Democrats gobbles up every competitor.)
And, yes, the takers had much to do with Obama's win. Shun those who take--they obviously did not listen to you and are not your friends. They are receiving and spending YOUR money.
I, being born at the start of WW2 saw the very best and now the very worse America. This has been coming for years, but I thought with a defeat of the current regime, we would get another 10 years or so. Not only have they got demographics on their side, they count the votes. The Fat Lady sung.
I am embarrassed that so many Americans would throw away their heritage so easily. Four years from now they will again ask "are you better off today". What do you think the answer will be? I am not saying America is done with (I do have my doubts about a good future for most of us) but it sure will be a long four years.
I recall that in my lifetime, a democrat president remarked: "Ask not what your country could do for you, ask what you can do for your country". At the time, it was the popular soundbite of his inaugural address.
So totally out of place today, as America has become divided among a slight majority of takers, and an ever shrinking minority of producers. Atlas has shrugged.
..it leaves unanswered a more fundamental question: why would the electorate tolerate such partisan bias from the news media, let alone allow it to influence their votes?
Because they behemently deny that bias exists. How the heck are they supposed to know about the bias when all they pay attention to is CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC and so on?
I have a friend who is a liberal whose main sources of info are the NYT, the LA Times, CNN and the Boston Globe. She claims to read "the other side" all the time and thinks THEY are biased.
The rest of the populace who don't pay attention to politics except at election time, vote strictly on aesthetics and the mood of our pop culture.
Let's not forget that the Greatest Generation is almost died out and that America long since became secularist, which means that crudeness, coarseness, substance-lessness and emotions rule -- Obama and his generation provide them in abundance.
We conservatives lost because of exactly what I feared: They misread the value of morality and truth among Americans, and they failed to recognize the effectiveness of public school indoctrination that has been quietly perking for decades.
We lost because people want what Obama is selling: Soak the rich and give me their stuff. Then burn the Constitution, take away everybody's guns and Hush Rush.
We Tea Partiers placed our trust in the GOP as the vehicle to preserve the Constitution. They had all the issues and the worst pResident in history to run against. It was their election to lose. They lost it. They are losers.
It is time to go to plans B, C, and D. Those plans do not include the GOP. Those plans do not include "Charlie" Chris Christ-ie. Fu-getta-bout-it.
All the snarky remarks sure to come from the Romneybots and the Establishment Pubs will not change the fact: You are Losers. You were wrong - again. Yet another one of your RINO candidates - lost.
In sports you fire the coaches in a situation like this. The political equivalent is to fire the RNC. Reince Priebus is a Loser. The McCain advisers who hung on to steer the Romney campaign are - Losers.
We're down to a new political party of, by, and for the middle-class. Country-clubbers and Wall-Streeters need not apply. We're down to possible civil war, or at least civil disobedience. We're down to desperate measures.
Ain't gonna be no healing # 12 . Those of us who live in the Rockies would give a leg to chop off the ol' original colonies and watch them float out into the Atlantic . Those people back there are living in another country , truly . They are some sort of inbred crossbreed , but wouldn't fight for this country if they had to . Nope , secession is just around the bend and we here won't miss them .
This should be the last time we hear the argument to let the Dems win so the population will learn a lesson from the disaster they cause. The dems have brought disaster and enough of the population does not know the reason why and re-elect the cause of the disaster. It is an immense task to re-educate a drone electorate. Just try to teach one drone let alone half the population to see reality! Freedom depends on the moral fibre of the electorate. This is much easier to loose than to regain. Reagan estimated the time frame on this at a thousand years. Seems about right to me.
Countries come and countries go, but God alone endures.
I am very sad that America, as a whole, has chosen to destroy itself. However, God may be planning to let the evil play itself out to its inevitable end. Then, when the culture of death has finally burned itself out, a new and glorious culture of life will arise on the ashes. It may be closer than we think.
We are very possibly witnessing the death of our Republic. Time will tell. The chances of everything going wrong just increased exponentially, and there will be tens of millions wondering why when it does. The only question we have to ponder is, when will it all come tumbling down? It is now way past time to batten down the hatches.
#16 you are right as usual but I'm guessing 60+ years of brainwashing. So many Americans have never heard of Patrick Henry or even understand "give me liberty or give me death" - they have never been withour freedom. #32 you said what I am thinking - countries come & go. God will either destroy us completely or bring us back from the ashes. I told my son last night "the sooner the cliff appears the better" so that the Tea Party & patriots can begin the repair of our Republic.
No the problem is not the Republican party. Mitt was, and still is, a decent man, who, like McCain was fairly centrist. Look at the vote totals and you will find the problem. There are too many voters who have an insatiable appetite for government money and benefits, and those who are too afraid to vote for a change when things are bad. Cannibalism and fear are a lethal weapon to truth and fact.
Essentially, the producers now have visible targets on their backs, lit up the takers in society.
When Truth is rejected by a majority of the electorate, and irrational and emotional appeals are the only thing that sway voters, then it is imperative that the Republicans adopt a similar platform. Unfortunately, feelings are what drive today's voters, not facts. Until we are ready to fight on an emotional level, we will continue to lose.
Pert near 50% of the voters voted against Obamunism.
The commys cheated and stole at every turn, and the marxist media aided and abetted the scum everywhere. The crooked mafioso unions and their goons and the 47% parasites were picked up and hauled to the polls all day long to vote early and vote often. Not to mention all the dead minorities in every ghetto and reservation. Voter fraud rules us now.
You cannot tell me Sarah would have done worse. Being too scared to alienate idiots is not the way to go.
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
How fitting that abortion zealot and self-proclaimed Marxist Gloria Steinem received the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday from Barack Hussein Obama. The male-bashing, anti-family, anti-American Steinem beamed as the guy who voted three times against a partial-birth abortion ban while in the Illinois state Senate placed the medal around her neck. What exactly is the meritorious contribution Steinem has made to our national interests that would warrant such an honor? Ever since the radical feminist attended an "abortion speak-out" in 1969 hosted by the radical man-hating group Redstockings, she was "instantly committed" to the abortion movement.
If no one else, WND, the New York Post, and now Fox News have started paying serious attention to an urban pastime known as "the knockout game" or occasionally as "polar bear hunting," a phenomenon that has caused at least seven deaths and countless serious injuries. The "polar bear" refers to the invariably white or at least non-black victim of a hunt by a young black male, usually one of a pack of the same. The hunters tend to prey on those who seem vulnerable. This includes old people, women, children, and, most often, clueless male liberals-- like the Pittsburgh teacher
With the "fumbled" rollout of Obamacare giving us all a 24/7 inundation of administration statements such as: "This is the law of the land, it was voted on by Congress, upheld by the Supreme Court and will be enforced by a rabid pack of gun-toting IRS agents." Alright, I confess, I made up that last bit about the gun-toting IRS agents. Neither Obama nor his talking sock puppets ever said that -- at least out loud. Within a month of these spirited defenses of an indefensible law, the White House did what became an impression of the "Saturday Night Live" character, the
On the night of July 17, 1996, President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary attended a gala for the Women´s Leadership Forum of the Democratic National Committee at the Sheraton Washington Hotel. We know this from the 11,000 pages of Hillary´s schedule as first lady that the National Archives released in 2008. At 8:35 that evening, after working the rope line, the Clintons left the Sheraton by presidential motorcade and headed back to the White House where they arrived at 8:45. A 8:31 that same evening, two FAA veterans at the New York Air Route Traffic Control Center observed a target arching
Derelict: (´der??likt/) neglectful of duty, delinquent; a person guilty of neglect of duty; a bum. SYNONYM-see Obama, Barack. A thought experiment can be useful to explain why America is in a mess. Let´s take Barack Obama at his word -- a stretch certainly for anyone who would lie about his own mother´s death to score partisan points will lie about...well, anything. But let´s put the most positive spin on what President Obama has been conveying to his fellow Americans. One can try to be optimistic even in these perilous times -- it is one of the great traits of being
What will the United States of America be like after Barack Obama leaves the presidency on January 20, 2017 (assuming he does leave)? Five days before the 2008 election, Obama declared he would "fundamentally transform" America. Obama has done much to fulfill that promise since January 20, 2009. If he completes his agenda, the U.S. will be very much like a European-style welfare state. Obama is not personally responsible for some of the changes in American society that have facilitated the welfare state´s growth. Charles Murray (Coming Apart), Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint (Come On People), and Nicholas Eberstadt (A Nation of
The Atlantic, November 2, 2012: Obama´s Crystal-Clear Promise to Stop Iran From Getting a Nuclear Weapon. USA Today, October 25, 2013: Iran bomb one month away. The New Republic, March 2, 2012. "...never has an American president treated an Israeli prime minister with such shabbiness as Obama has treated Netanyahu." (Snip) For decades sane people have tried to raise worldwide alarms about the rise of Iran as a rogue nuclear power. Liberals chose not to listen. Conservatives listened, because we are realists, and we still read history. Today -- at this very moment -- the crisis is here, and worst of
Crony businessman Terry McAuliffe rode a massive 70-22% margin among single women to a shockingly tiny victory over Ken Cuccinelli -- while Chris Christie has been declared the winner of the GOP Media Primary for the 2016 presidential nomination. These are just a few of the fascinating developments from Virginia, New Jersey, and elsewhere last night. Oddly, Fox News was not nearly as fascinated by any of it as were CNN and MSNBC -- that is, until Christie took to the podium at 10:15 eastern.
Washington Post polling shows the Democratic businessman and fundraiser with a double-digit lead (51 percent to 39 percent) over Republican Ken Cuccinelli II following a campaign ad blitz that shredded the sitting attorney general over his conservative views. It’s not that voters love McAuliffe. They just don’t like Cuccinelli — and they really don’t like the Republican Party. Kathleen Parker Parker writes a twice-weekly column on politics and culture.

Fox News is justifiably proud of its star commentator Charles Krauthammer, widely considered to be the most influential conservative journalist in the country. In an hour-long interview with Fox News 6 P.M anchor Brett Baier that fist ran last Friday, the usually reticent Krauthammer told the fascinating story of his life, relating how he coped with the crippling accident that left him forever wheelchair-bound and how he almost inadvertently traded the psychiatrist´s couch for the journalist´s keyboard. Listening to this remarkable man, one couldn´t help admiring his spunk, his strength of character and, above all, his towering intellect. And then
In his weekly radio address, President Obama preposterously pouted that "it´s well past the time for folks to stop rooting for [ObamaCare´s] failure," with the obvious implication that conservative Republicans are in fact cheering for the pain of the un-insured. No, Mr. President, we are not. We are, however, having a delicious moment of schaden-fraud. This is the magnificent validation we are experiencing as all elected Democrats and members of the Jurassic media are fast discovering that the man and the plan they have so arrogantly shoved down our throats - and so naively placed their hopes in -- are simultaneously
Fraud can be so brazen it takes people’s breath away. But for a prosecutor tasked with proving a swindle — or what federal law describes as a “scheme to defraud” — the crucial thing is not so much the fraud. It is the scheme. To be sure, it is the fraud — the individual false statements, sneaky omissions, and deceptive practices — that grabs our attention. As I’ve recounted in this space, President Obama repeatedly and emphatically vowed, “If you like your health-insurance plan, you can keep your health-insurance plan, period.” The incontrovertible record — disclosures by the Obama administration in
Fear swept through Borough Park, Brooklyn, as soon as the news got out: A young man was randomly assaulted by strangers early Friday morning, and the attack was possibly part of the so-called Knockout Game. Four men were arrested, but on Friday night only one was charged and the others were released. The attack added to a growing log of reports of such crimes in the Northeast and beyond. Young assailants were randomly picking unlucky targets and trying to knock them out with just one punch. Yet police officials in several cities where such attacks have been reported said that the “game” amounted
JERUSALEM -- Israel´s prime minister has criticized the international community´s nuclear deal with Iran as a "historic mistake." Speaking to his Cabinet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel is not bound by the deal and reserves the right to defend itself. That is a reference to possible military action against Iran. Israel believes Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, although Tehran denies that. Netanyahu said the deal would not adequately stop Iran, while also giving it relief from sanctions. "Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world
Joining the hosts of MSNBC’s The Cycle on Friday, legendary NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw previewed a special on the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination that will air on MSNBC that night. Recounting his experiences from that day, he said that the reaction to JFK’s assassination, “mostly in conservative states,” was encapsulated by his interaction with one man who expressed satisfaction over the president’s killing. “This was unusual but it was not unheard of,” Brokaw told the MSNBC hosts, prefacing a conservative’s reaction to JFK’s killing. “As I came running out of the announce booth, the chief engineer,
“For the first time in nearly a decade we have halted parts of Iran’s nuclear program” announced a jubilant Barack Obama after the news of the just-signed Geneva six-month interim agreement with Iran. But the American goal for the accord was that the Iranians not “advance their program” of building a uranium nuclear bomb (and perhaps a plutonium bomb too); the apparent deal exactly permits such advancement, plus sanctions relief to Tehran worth about $9 billion. This wretched deal offers one of those rare occasions when comparison with Neville Chamberlain in Munich in 1938 is valid. An overeager Western government, blind to
Bankrupt and hemorrhaging population, the city of Detroit is banking on greener pastures to lead its rebirth.

Hantz Woodlands plans to start by planting trees, but hopes to raise crops and even livestock in the future, right in the midst of the once-proud city. “We are interested with moving into different types of agriculture,” Mike Score, president of Hantz,
Let me be the first to ask: Did the White House know that employment reports were being falsified? Last week I reported exclusively that someone at the Census Bureau’s Philadelphia region had been screwing around with employment data. And that person, after he was caught in 2010, claimed he was told to do so by a supervisor two levels up the chain of command. On top of that, a reliable source whom I haven’t identified said the falsification of employment data by Census was widespread and ongoing, especially around the time of the 2012 election. There’s now a congressional investigation
If voters had been aware last year that they might lose their health-care plans when Obamacare went into effect, Republican President Mitt Romney would be sitting in the White House today, according to a poll released Friday. A Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research survey conducted from Nov. 18-20 asked voters who supported President Barack Obama in 2012: “As you may know, millions of Americans have lost their insurance plans despite President Obama’s promise that, quote, ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it.’ If you knew in 2012 that this promise was not true, would you still have voted
Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans”- President John F. Kennedy. There is no family in American politics who is quite on par with the Kennedy’s. Fifty years after the assassination of JFK, the family’s presence in American politics has dwindled–they’ve experienced many ups and downs– but they’ve carried on. Each generation seems to pass on the proverbial torch, and America’s interest in the Kennedy clan, whether they’re running for office or battling public relations snafus, has continued with that passing.
President Obama said Friday he does not worry much about his safety because of the “outstanding” Secret Service detail that shadows him everywhere he goes. Obama said the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago transformed the presidential security detail to a point where he hardly thinks about safety. "It´s not something I think about, mainly because we have a Secret Service that does an outstanding job every single day," Obama told ABC News in an interview set to air next week. For example, the open-air car Kennedy was riding in while shot in Dallas in 1963
Ahmad Rashad, a Pro Bowl wide receiver, has made yet another great catch. The Minnesota Vikings legend has rebounded from his broken marriage to Sale Johnson — the ex-wife of Jets owner Woody Johnson — and is said to be dating Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s most trusted senior adviser. Rashad, a sportscaster and a close friend of Michael Jordan’s, is keeping the romance on the down low. “They haven’t gone out in public,” one source told me. “They are sneaking around.” (Rashad’s manager did not respond to questions about the relationship, and the White House declined to comment on Jarrett’s personal life.) Rashad, who
Mike Convente, a left-wing Daily Kos diarist and a representative on the University of Pennsylvania health care committee, took to the pages of Kos to complain about the "law of unintended consequences" of ObamaCare. Convente is also upset that Obama´s "marketing slogans … turned out to be not so correct." It looks as though the students at UPenn will be paying a lot more for their health insurance policies, thanks in large part to the fact that ObamaCare is forcing them to pay for coverage they do not need. Not only that, Convente is probably not buying the propaganda from
