The night we waved goodbye to
America... our last best hope on Earth

Daily Mail [UK], by Peter Hitchens

Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead. The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something. I really don’t see how the

One wonders where a freedom loving person can go to now. It is not inconceivable that communist China has more freedoms and opportunities to pursue life liberty and the pursuit of happiness now.

I just went and scraped off the Romney "Lets Rebuild America" bumper sticker from my car.

We've all been kidding ourselves that we can build anything with so much selfishness holding us back. The parasites have spoken.

Therefore, I am going to be selfish, too. Dems have taken the hard work, generosity, and kindness of conservatives for granted for far too long. It's time they learn that their entitled selves don't have us to ride on. Tell Obama and his minions: We DON'T have your back any more. I'm kicking that saddle off starting today.

#2. Let me tell you something that I never thought I would be saying.

When I hire someone, my background check will include understanding where they come from politically. I will keep that to myself. How I find out that information I will keep to myself.

I will not hire any Democrat, I don't care if their family is starving. They can stand in line for government cheese.

As far as my vendors are concerned, one Obama bumpersticker on a car of an owner, they won't be my vendor anymore. And I'll make sure others know where they are coming from.

Now it's personal. Now my country is being ruined. I plan to make the next four years very personal.

Good for you, #5. And everyone remember one undeniable fact, the one they shove furthest from view: they need us. We do not need them. Cut off their funds, and they will wither and die.

An excellent Peter Hitchens summary of the state of affairs in the USA. I didn't notice that it was written in 2008 until poster #3 posted it. It is more relevant today than in 2008. Take heart all:

Psalm 46:1

46 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

I will be surprised if Rush Limbaugh does not announce his retirement this week.

Why should he keep working to smarten up a nation of schlubs who care more about sports and entertainment celebrities than their own freedom? He fought the good fight every single day but was beaten by a cabal of leftists and party hacks posing as news reporters.

"These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts."

Sad. True. Tragic.

Especially the part about the GOP refusing to fight as a moral force. To do that, you must - must! - identify the enemy as immoral. This is impossible if you grant him the sanction of "good intentions" or "idealism" or "difference of opinion" or whatever smokescreen du jour Democrats demand in order to commit their crimes unpunished.

Sanctioning the Enemedia, by letting them once again host and control the debates (why??!!) is another mistake. The evidence of malpractice against the Enemedia now reaches from here to the moon, yet- no prosecutions??!! Why not??!!

Today, I see little hope, and strategic thinking shifts away from winning elections and toward surviving an electorate hostile toward success.

Those who have not done so already can quit patronizing Hollywood, alphabet news, and liberal newspapers and magazines. Get your news from Rush or Lucianne, but don't pay for it. Liberal TV will melt your brain.

#4 is correct. There will come a judgment on those who have not asked for forgiveness. We cannot expect any less for the abominations our society demands, and celebrates on a daily basis.

This is not our home, we are only passing through.

#5 and #6 - well, now that we've abandoned being America and have turned into Europe, why not give the Obama voters a taste of Europe, and declare a national strike? We'll all walk off our jobs, and head to the welfare offices, telling them we want ours, too. Meanwhile money for Obama voters not to mention goods and services will dry up.

Let's demand that multimillionaire Democrats like Soros and Katie Couric and Steven Spielberg support us. Let's be creative here.

I have been posting for months that Romney would never be president and it was time to plan the rest of your life. In my heart I hoped I was wrong, but in my mind I knew I wasn't.
We should make the most of each day. Don't put off the things you really want to do. Each day is going to be a tiny bit worse than the day before. More people will see their lives changed in devastating ways with no hope of recovery, but we have some time. Make the most of it and maybe plan where you will go if we degenerate into a dictatorship.
We did get to see the pinnacle of human achievement.

Just wait until Taxmeggedon hits in January. Zero's cult members won't know what hit them. Wait until Obamacare is fully implemented in 2014. No care is available, nothing but long lines and death. God's protection over the USA is gone. Democrats booed Him at their convention. We get what we deserve.

Remember it was the cheap labor loving wimpy Republican business interests who caused mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the first place.

The liberal Democrats now intend to eventually flip the vast majority of those illegal aliens, through incremental amnesty programs and a "path to citizenship" into an overwhelming number of new liberal Democrat voters.

Those factors have now become a growing albatross around the neck of the GOP that no longer will be able to muster up enough voters to win future national elections.

I understand all the bitterness in the posts above. But I don't see how cutting off our personal friends and contacts --because they happen to be Dem voters-- is going to help anything.

I'm a close friend of a retired policeman. He is at heart a good person, but a dyed-in-the-wool Dem and union guy. He hated Romney (called him "Willard"), and mocked Ryan. The Dem's clever, demagogic class-warfare lies were tailor-made for people like him.

Yet he understood how bad Benghazi was. He is pro-gun and pro-military. The next few years will severely test his Dem credentials! I will still be around to gently push him in the right direction.

We are going to have those two Americas that idiot past VP candidate Edwards kept talking about.

One will stay very creative and buck the system, work hard and survive (not thrive); the other, will survive for a while until their handouts run out.

I can see our streets full of chaos and ill will.

I mourn for our country. I truly hate those who caused this to happen, whether from ignorance (forgivable) or on purpose (hardly so).

I fear for future war inside our own country and for our awesome military.

I fear for Israel - no one has their back.

All this doom and gloom is very unseemly. Get ahold of yourselves. This fine country has suffered fools and tyrants before: FDR, Wilson, Carter, Benjamin Harry Henderson. Barry O is weak sauce compared to the despotic FDR regime. He tried to pack the Court for goodness sakes. We had to amend the Constiturion as a result of his insaterible list for power. The Obama years will be rough, but the nation will bounce back. Think of these lost years as reparations. After 8 years of reparations we won't owe the blacks a thing. They will have to compete on a level playing field just like all the rest of us. Think of it!

DHS insider: It’s about to get very ugly

Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place. While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning,

QUINCY – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? "It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city.

Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview. Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart.

CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department. The letters make the case for the whistleblowers to be able to share

Obama administration has SLASHED
budget for domestic bombing prevention
by 45 per cent, says former

UK Mail Online, by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Pinkpanther- 4/16/2013 11:42:33 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama´s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.

The Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Tuesday that it released personal information on potentially thousands of farmers and ranchers to environmental groups, following concerns from congressional Republicans and agriculture groups that the release could endanger their safety. According to a document obtained by FoxNews.com, the EPA said “some of the personal information that could have been protected … was released." Though the EPA has already sent out the documents, the agency now says it has since redacted sensitive details and asked the environmental groups to “return the information.” But Sen.

James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day. The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith. The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded. ´He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his

The report, however, released on Tuesday by the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, said researchers would have to overcome numerous hurdles before launching an anthrax-vaccine trial in children. It now goes to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who will decide whether to

A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.” In his writings, Francis wrote, “we should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence,’ that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion

Democrats were overjoyed when George W. Bush left office in January of 2009. Obama had promised to end Bush´s hawkish foreign policy and the "war on terror´s" detention and interrogation regime. But in the beginning of his fifth year as president, Obama´s record has been surprisingly similar to his predecessor´s in those areas. 1. Democrats fought George W. Bush’s troop surge in Iraq in 2006. Obama copied it in Afghanistan in 2009. You would think Democrats would react the same way they did to Bush´s surge policy. But they were really more like

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
