America goes into the darkness
Melanie's Blog [UK]*, by Melanie Phillips

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/7/2012 6:29:35 PM

The greatest satisfaction today over the re-election of Obama is not being felt in the Democratic Party. It is not being felt among the media, who are no longer objective observers but have turned instead into corrupt partisans who ruthlessly censored the truth about Obama and helped peddle his demonising propaganda about his opponent. It is not being felt among the gloating, drooling decadents of the western left who now scent a great blood-letting of all who dare defy their secular inquisition. No, the greatest satisfaction is surely being felt in Iran.[Snip]World War Three has now come a lot closer.

Sean Hannity said it, you get what you deserve. So fellow Americans, now you have to live with what you have done. When the bottom falls out, you have no one to blame but yourselves. I am terribly ashamed to be an American today. For all of you who voted for the anointed one, I will be blunt-F*** YOU.

The times get more and more interesting...according to the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot, secret talks have been ongoing between senior Obama adviser (Iranian born) Valerie Jarrett and Iran over the past several months.

FTA: "Well, voters can smell inconsistency from a mile away; they call it untrustworthiness, and they are right. "

I cannot disagree with her assessment of what was wrong with the Romney campaign. Those of us who were begging for him to make the conservative case for America, to pick up the mantle of Ronald Reagan, sensed the futility of the effort even as we gamely (if not reluctantly) embraced the candidate.

I think All was lost because American voters know nothing of the world or the domestic situation. They want stuff without having to work for it. They want to be spoiled children all their lives and Obama is their supplier. Why would they want to get up each day and go to a job?

We have become a country of grasping victims who want nothing more out of life than their perceived share of other peoples output and free sucking at the government teat. Unfortunately we are going to suffer the consequences of this every bit as much, if not more, than the losers who voted for him. There will be no walking this back. The shining light on the hill has gone permanently dark.

A friend asked her young, adult daughter what her age voted on in the election and the daughter said it was all social issues.
Between us parents and the public school teachers, we have done the next generation a grave disservice by letting them disengage with the real world.
And the older, adult people I have talked to have decided that a wealthy, successful white businessman is just plain evil and a failed, incompetent black man is just the ticket for potus.

For me, it's over. I am now going to be like the illegal immigrants and the Chicago gangs, it is now all about me and what I have to do to survive. I have always voluntarily obeyed all the laws, (well--except for speeding), played fair, gave more than my share, and so on and so forth. No more and if I even suspect that you are a Liberal, we are not friends and I won't do business with you any more if you own a business.

One thing LDotters can do is totally ignore the Veteran's Day Sales this weekend, then ignore Black Friday, and trim your Christmas and Hanukkah gifts way back. It is not too late to make homemade gifts. I had some items picked out to buy this weekend at the sales, but it is nothing I need, so I am doing without them.

I don't think the majority of Americans are addicted to the Santa Claus "freebies." Not yet, although we're approaching that point very quickly. Instead, I believe fraud played a HUGE part in this election.

White House Insider thinks the election was stolen with the help of some elected Republicans: BOTH SIDES. Get it? I know localized fraud. But a multiple state millions of votes level of fraud? To pull that off would be incredibly risky and would require help from the apparent opposition side.

I, too, am ashamed to be an American. We look like total idiots for re-electing a failed president. I hate to see that evening sun go down on America. I'm sad for my children, my grandson and his future children. The America of my childhood will very soon be gone. It's a sad, sad time for my country. I'm not sure if I'll ever vote again.

I kept saying we were doomed and now I am sure of it. I think that within six months, this country will be a nation of nothing. We won't have any money, all our freedoms will be gone and no one will have health care because we cannot afford it. There is no way you can keep spending and not paying. We will be bankrupt in no time and they will still be blaming Bush. This is what half this country voted for thinking they were voting for free phones, free food, free everything. It cannot happen. It will not happen. We are doomed.

Liberal friends voted for the fraud because of women's issues....what will happen when sharia law is here? What about women's issues then, it is scary. Christian's? What of them? I cannot understand why ANY Christian would vote for the fraud especially if there is a shred of evidence that he is muslim. Obviously their God did not explain this at all.

I am amazed that some Americans are no longer critical thinkers. What is worse is that they won't even allow themselves to hear a different opinion. They shut down anything that runs counter to their firmly held beliefs. Unfortunately those unthinking robots have put us all at risk. I am seriously fearful for the future. It as if the United States has shaken its fist into God's face and said, we will go our way. We don't want or need Your influence on our country. We are presently living in a time that will make the Cold War seem like child's play. We have put this country into the hands of evil minded people. We are all in danger. Dark times ahead. Melanie gets it.

No -- my fellow Americans -- I will NOT feel ashamed to be an American.

I am proud of my country and follow the rule of law....

I lost this election to a miserable excuse of a man -- but -- I thank President Romney in exile for daring to fight the media and the demorats and the world.....

It was a difficult task....and.... I hope he knows how much WE appreciate his effort...

As for the biggest losers -- it's the media because WE finally can saw how bigoted and biased they are. They gave this election to obama. Be careful -- my friends -- you often get what you pray for.... Here comes the judge -- here comes the judge and the jury and the supremes....

The number that jumps from Tuesday : something close to 10 million fewer votes for Romney than for McCain

We may not yet be outnumbered by the takers.

Why the low Romney turnout ? Romneycare ? Perceived Liberalism. Flip-flopping ? Mormonism ?

Obie's numbers were also lower than '08, presumably because of lack of enthusiasm. So, the victory was there for our taking but for the purists offended about ambiguous pro-life positions in BlueMass 10 years ago ?

So sad because I believe Romney's skills were ideally suited to our crisis. His moral character and leadership is also needed.

Barf!

What a load that is. Romney lost, because the GOP has whittled itself into a white male only party. This is not about whether everyone has to be Christian or Muslim. This is about personal freedom and choice and the GOP does not have a clue.

The demographic shift ushered in by RINO's and Democrats is complete. We've finally reached the tipping point. Obama won with 39% of the white vote. He will now open the floodgates and happily continue the left's suicidal quest to push whites into minority status. I won't be surprised at anything our dictator in chief does along the way.

This cannot be overstated:

Republicans just don’t understand that America and the west are being consumed by a culture war.

Too many people have discarded this explanation at their peril. Now we reap the deadly results of ignoring this.

By "culture war", we don't mean necessarily a divide about sexual morality, although that is one facet. Rather, it is an "other" worldview from that of traditional American values such as working for a living, posponing gratification, "saving for a rainy day", telling the truth, placing value in something higher than one's self, living accountably, being charitable and above all, understanding that people are not basically "good". If that were so, we would not need laws or prisons. People sink to their default state -- the lust for money and power -- the moment they can. Just look around you.

Not understanding this, Melanie correctly posits, has led to one of the biggest mistakes we made -- expecting people to be truthful and honest. When they are not, we are surprised. But we shouldn't be. How many lessons does it take to understand that?

One need ony to do a few Worldview Studies to know that the history of the world is that of tyranny -- people who are permitted to get away with it, will oppress and control others, take what they have and if necessary, obliterate them. That is the default state of mankind, and those who claim people are "born good" are dangerously naive. It's not a pretty picture but it is the God's honest truth.

That 47% who don't pay any income taxes elected Obama so he can give them still more of working people's money. Several enigmas:

White people who did not vote for Obama are racists, but the black people who did are not.

It is unconstitionual to ask someone for I.D. to be able to vote, but is constitional to ask for it to buy a bottle of wine.

I'm sure you can think of more.

I'm wondering if the lower vote totals were partially due to some success in fighting fraud. If that's true, it could also be an indication of how widespread the fraud is, the level of illegal voting that succeeded.

I see the much-maligned UN observers were shocked that people voted without identification.

#26... Zero received 69M votes in 2008, 60M in 2012. McCain received 59M in 2008, Romney 57M in 2012. Zero lost almost 10M, not the republicans. But still, Romney received less than McCain. That is hard to believe without a tin foil hat.

#12, I think it's even worse than that. Young people are being taught that free market capitalism, private sector economy is bad, unfair, risky, etc. They are buying the BS that we need centralized government to "monitor" and "manage" our economy. They are being taught to not trust a candidate who is a financial guy. We are doomed if we don't figure out how to educate Americans on the greatness of free market capitalism.

It's bad enough when people go mad and join suicidal cults. But in this case, they are taking the rest of us with them. We are now headed for certain catastrophe. In fact, toward multiple serial catastrophes.

The first will be economic. And it will be coming very soon. In January, the fiscal cliff of massive tax hikes is looming. The Democrats know they have to do something, but their cure will kill the patient. Disproportionate taxes on the producers will guarantee major business failures and further job losses. It will put the economy into a death spiral.

On national defense, sequestration will begin gutting and dismantling our military. Our enemies, who are modernizing and expanding their militaries, will be further emboldened. Iran, not just unchallenged but even facilitated and shown the green light, will in fact complete their first nukes. Israel can't stop them without our assistance. So then the only question will be how long before Iran strikes. First Israel, then us.

I suppose the only good news is that when Iran does strike us, they will take out our big very blue cities, starting with DC. God works in miraculous ways.

I will tell you who lost the election for us - those stuff shirt, power mongers at the RNC who stuck their finger in the eye of Ron Paul supporters at the convention in Tampa.
If Romney had embraced these freedom loving constitution loving people by condemning the blatant disregard of their no votes and pledging to name Paul the head of the Federal Reserve, he would be our president elect today.

Re #2;

After the first Sept. 11, I began flying a flag at my house on a regular basis. First one of those inexpensive ones that mounts on the wall of the house. Then a good steel in ground one in my front yard. That one got bent by a tornado, so I replaced it with an aluminum one. That got bent by high winds, so I had the steal one straightened enough to use again. Put a spotlight in the front yard so I could leave it out at night.

Yesterday I unplugged the light and took the flag down. May never fly it again. In respect for the dead (aka, our late great constitutional republic).

Perhaps I should get rid of the pole now, just so I won't be forced to run up the new USSA flag with Dear Reader's picture on it when it is issued. I'd rather not do that.

I HATE the outcome of this election as much as anybody, but making Valerie Jarett into some sinister ghoul is ridiculous.

This is the fact of the matter - unless the Republicans compete in our urban areas, they can no longer win national electons, and it will be difficult to win state elections. Yes, we win big in less densely populated areas, but that is never going to get it done if we win such a small percentage of the vote in cities/urban areas.

Here's the problem and we're pushing the average age so a solution had better come very quickly.

-----------------------------------------------

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

I am sitting here trying to figure out who didn't vote for Romney as compared with the Republican candidates in 2008 and 2004. Allahpundit had a nice statistical explanation of why it wasn't the evangelicals. (As an evangelical myself, I didn't get the feeling that evangelicals were anything but supremely motivated to vote in order to protect their country and their religious freedom.) Was it the Libertarians? Seriously, I don't think there are that many of them, at least not enough who put love of country behind love of Ayn Rand.

The voting lines were long. The enthusiasm at Romney/Ryan rallies was huge. The yardsign and bumpersticker deficit was apparent to anybody who looked. Who didn't vote this time???

#45 -- Valerie Jarrett is a sinister ghoul, but that has nothing to do with why Obama lost the election. It should chill you to the bone that she would be the U.S. representative sent to "negotiate" which chocolates to purchase from Switzerland. I can only imagine what she's giving away to the Mullahs of Iran (and don't forget she is a native-born Iranian).

Now, regarding this point:"Well, voters can smell inconsistency from a mile away; they call it untrustworthiness, and they are right."

She's wrong. He was inconsistent or untrustworthy. Our voters are ignorant and suffer from pop-culture rot. That 50+% that voted for Obama wouldn't know truth if is struck them squarely between the eyes. Of the 50+% that voted for him, half were self-absorbed over-educated liberal elitists who love the thought of telling others how to live their lives, the other half were the ones who believe they need the first half to tell them how to live and to ensure that they get their entitlements. Neither of these two halves understand how the real world works, nor do they care to really understand.

I think obama will run again and be re-elected in 2016. He is in for life.
The Sup ct that he will have added to with lib/leftie Justices will nullify the amendment on two-terms. Already there are Congressers working on it.(all donks)
There is no way that the country can rid ourselves of this Junta.
altho if Obama sees that he can bypass the Constitution, then why should we be bound by it? Maybe it works both ways.

Obama is in over his head as president. Romney was in over his head as for running for president.
He never mentioned gay marriage. He had Ed Gillespie as an adviser. He backed off on Benghazi. The conservative senate candidates won, while establishment types lost Except for the inept Akin and Mourdok. Karl Rove is a joke. The establishment his to be replaced. We never will win again with these buffoons we have leading the party.

I'm reminded of what Chief Justice Roberts wrote in his controversial Obamacare ruling: elections have consequences and you get the government you select. While I disagree with his Obamacare ruling, the 2012 elections proved he was correct.

#33 you are correct.

America is heading for troubling times. I have said it before, it is time to stock up on the 4B's (Beans, bullets, bandaids and booze). I want some merlot or cab sauv with my beans.

There are many great websites and blogs out for prepping info. One of my favorites is Survival Blog. I have no connection to that blog other than being a daily reader.

Also there is a new season of Doomsday Preppers. Yes some of them are on the edge and it is emphasized by the shows producers to make them look crazy and laughable.

There are now 2 sorts of Americans. The first is the suicide. (Insert here Edward G. Robinson as Barton Keyes's speech as to types of suicide in "Double Indemnity." Add "suicide by 'sorcery.' and suicide by revenge voting") The second is the Christian. (Insert here "subsets of Christian: Amillenial, pre-tribulation, post-tribulation, John Galt producer type, living martyr, messianic Jew, of another fold ye know not of, beginning to be beheaded for the faith in other countries, borderline "lukewarm," Episcopalian-non practicing gays, Catholic well meaning once a week book report hearers; divided by underground church members, including those who dream dreams and see visions but who are not counted as Rove-approved watchdogs, and paid watchdogs wearing bow ties and spectators, who cry as they dumb down their reports in Babylon.

Sorry for the second post. One more thing. I hang out at conservative blogs. Last time there were plenty of people who said they were going to the polls to vote for Sarah Palin. They weren't pleased with McCain, but they could vote for Sarah. And by extension, one could infer that there were a significant number of Republicans who didn't like McCain enough that even Sarah's presence on the ticket could motivate them to make the trip to vote.

This time I saw none of that. Conservatives and evangelicals were not thrilled with Romney at first, but they realized that he is a decent man, had picked a genuine conservative as his running mate, and that the prospect of four more years of Obama was so dreadful that that alone made them want to be sure to cast their ballots. This time the Republicans were no longer starry-eyed about the hopey-changey chance to vote the first black president into office. There may have been a few who were willing to vote for the Democrat, but not many.

So once again - who was it on our side that didn't vote???

#s 33 and 43...Obama is NOT the anti-christ; BUT he IS a fore-runner. It is more than apparent that Americans (save those with spiritual discernment) have been sent a "delusion from God, that they would believe the lie."

Obama has in essence 'greased the skids'...seeing what the market would bear or how far he could push the envelope.

There are no checks and balances, so Obama can get away with just about anything...executive orders to make things happen (without Congress), and imposing executive privilege to prevent congress, et al, from seeing the impeachable crimes.

Congress and the Supreme Court are neutered, and the Lame stream media are accomplices to Obama's high crimes. Look up...with well over 50 million murdered babies since Roe v. Wade, God has had enough! We are the new Sodom and Gamorrah.

This article is worth reading twice, the second time very carefully. Melanie Phillips, anent Obama's (Jarrett's) foreign policy, mentions that we are sliding toward World War III. I fear we may also be sliding toward American Civil War II. Preposterous? Believe me, few Americans in say, 1856 would have believed that in five years on half of America would have been facing the other half in a bloody civil war.

Philips mentions Romney's weaknesses as a candidate. Politically, Romney is no leader -- whatever he may have been in the private sector -- politically, he has been a good administrator and a compromiser. At least I, no admirer of Romney or the tactics of some of his supporters, give him credit for for refusing to publicly espouse principles in which he has never believed (that is, those of conservatism.) It was obvious that his ineptitude in defending himself or taking the fight to the enemy was because he shared their point of view far more than he shared ours.

#13 - Please don't boycott Christmas gift giving. Remember the small/micro business owners, like myself, who work 24/7, do our part, contribute our share to taxes & country, support charities, and feel the same way you do about all of this administration’s treachery.

I'm a small business owner about ready to go under in this economy, and a negative holiday season will be the last nail in the coffin for my business. Since 2003 I have never seen things this bad, and I know I am just one of millions business owners feeling this way. We’re all praying for small business support from our fellow Americans.

Came into the world during the era of FDR and The Great Depression. During my time on the earth, I have witnessed first hand our federal government, churches, public schools and universities, courts, media outlets and even our military fall into the hands of the forces of evil.

The reelection of Barack Hussein Obama only confirmed to anyone paying attention that the America of our Founding Fathers, established on the foundations of Judeo-Christian teachings, is rapidly descending into further darkness and no longer exists.

The election was stolen....Rasmussen had reported 18 million New registered Republican voters.

Waiting times were longer than ever...at least an hour everywhere in WI ...You dont have increased waiting time beyond anything ever seen before,( particularly after the fresh recall and revote to compare to)

Wi was stolen in two urban areas, Kenosha, Milwaukee with plenty of bussed in Illinois voters. ( Illinois plates on their cars and an Illinois poll watching attorney)

She's exactly correct. But, I want to float an almost unthinkable idea. Our sons and daughters should not volunteer to protect Obama, Chris Matthews, Valerie Jarrett, or Democrats and all their evil spawn. They have broken faith with the American Social Compact and no longer are Americans. Our children should not give their lives for them.

Nobody is talking about the "death" tax that will be reinstated in January 2013. The rate will be 52% of everything valued at over one million dollars.

That tax, if it stands, will surely take out a lot of American family small businesses and farms that will have to be sold so that families can pay that onerous tax.

That will be good for rich foreigners who can come here and purchase those businesses and properties, claim that they will be hiring American workers when in reality most times they hire immigrants, illegal and legal, from their home countries, and in return be given a "green" card.

The missing GOP voters somebody (Sean Trende?) has pointed out, and the Latinos (who ought to be with us - Megan McArdle's article?), those were the weak spots, it seems - we lost for lack of them - they did not turn up on Election Day. Let us also note that many or so of Zippy's did not. Though Zippy won, let us take note anyway of the African-Americans who were pro-life and wouldn't vote against him but they wouldn't vote for him either.

The Tea Party is the only group in America with a backbone at the moment.

My post-election resolves are two:

1. Take down my American flag. It does not represent the American government.
2. Contact my local Tea Party and see if they can use the kind of help I can give them. Being somewhat physically handicapped, I have always assumed they could not...but it is time to find out for sure.

2012 Obama - 60,662,601

Nine Million fewer votes for Obama?

Nine million???

Okay. Maybe.

2008 McCain - 59,934,812
2012 Romney - 57,821,399

2 million fewer votes than for the miserable McCain?

That's nonsense.

Reasonable men will now try an explain why polling stations were packed like never before seen and there were fewer votes.

Cheer up! Expect a 15-percent American unemployment rate by 2016. Then, if Biden is elected President in 2016, expect a 25-percent unemployment rate by 2020. Finally, at some point after 2020, the Democratic Party will collapse and be consigned to the dust bin of history.

OK, fellow genuises, Ithe old lady is going to tell you why we keep losing despite outnumbering the Democrats in registered voters.

1. While we often fault the Democratsw for putting party above country we do not see that we are doing the same thing when we insist that every elected Republican and every candidate agree with us on everyting.

2. We fight each other too mucdh. We cannot tolerate other opinions, since each of us right on everything.

3. We have the wrong solutions. While I have listened to Rush for years, he is wrong on one thing. That is that our candidates must all be conservatives.

4. The Tea Party is echoing this same idea. I belong to Tea Party Patriots but I disagree on some points. They share Rush's opinion on conservatives and are going to double down on it. I am so grateful to them for their stand but I think this will lead us to another disaster.

5. We do not understand the limits of power and insist that our representatives must accomplish the impossible or we will get rid of them. Boahner and McConnell have been playing a clever game and are darned good at it but we call for their heads. Issa has done heroic work but because he has not been able to do the impossible we don't appreciate it.
We speak bitterly about our people here on Lucianne undermining our representatives and not considering the fact that others are reading our comments.

6. Evangelical protests notwithstanding, they did not come out in force for McCain and even less so for Romney. They think they are being faithful to their beliefs and their feet are in concrete about it.

Yo…#40. To hell with Ron Paul. He benefited from being in the Republican Party all those years, and then when needed most, he abdicated. If he had endorsed Romney (who went out of his way to show respect for Paul) it might have made a difference. Now he is irrelevant. I agree with Jack Welch…Romney is probably the all-around best candidate we have had or will have for many, many years...smart, decent, accomplished, and imminently qualified. And I am devastated at the loss.

If we fight, & fight back HARD, we have a chance to beat this slide into decay. We must attack back at every single lying statement they make or print or video on television. Hard.

We need to sue as slander the old woman being thrown off the cliff ad. Why have we been so nice? Because of the MSM? Beat them at their own game & buy air time for ads & programs. Sue them if they won't sell them to use under our FCC laws.

Remember when Perot did his "Pretty simple stuff" ad? He got a lot of votes from the GOP for that one program. He lasted two election cycles helping Clinton stay in office. We need to do that!!!

Fight back & fight back hard while we still can!

#66 and #74 - I will never, ever believe that Zero won this election fair and square. Electronic voting machines switching enough votes from Romney to Obama in swing states cinched the election for 0 and makes the original numbers reasonable and believable.

I mourn the death of truth and justice in America.

All this rationalizing and trying to explain what didn't really happen is royally ticking me off.

I personally believe that the voting was rigged so that a vote for Romney was changed to a vote for no-one. An obvious, OOPPSS-IT SHOWED OBAMA, is easily caught. An ignored vote, not so easily caught. The ballot could be counted and audited against the voting registrations, but a no vote would never be caught. If the number of republicans who voted in a given district is significantly less than the number of votes for Romney, I'd suspect fraud.

I am John Galt.

I think we will not find out where the 10 million Repub votes went to, because we don't have any law enforcement.

We now live in a country where you can smoke a doobie and drive, but you will be arrested if you are talking on a cell phone.

The election was stolen. It has been a long time since a Republican could win a close election. Dem precincts openly are held open longer than Repub precincts. That is cheating. Just because a judge says its ok doesn't change the fact that its cheating.

Philly had precincts where the Dems threw out the Pubbie poll watchers for the afternoon, and then those precincts went 100 percent Obama. Surprise? I don't think so.

We are dead, friends.

What to do? Restigmatize being on the dole. food stamps? Begin using words like "lazy", "selfish", "ignorant", "user". To their face. Ostracize men that won't work.

Take the vote away from people on the dole. No taxes paid? No vote this year.

Ostracize dead beat dads. The greatest challenge to black boys is their absentee dads. Let's start with Obama. He has abandoned his boy. Didn't know he had one, did you? Surprize! Obama is a dead beat dad.

Time to start calling people what they are. Deadbeats. Lazy bums. Ignorant. Users. No vote for them. Start saying it out loud. I am going to.

I think there are hundreds of things that put us here, but the biggest thing is the easiest to control if we are willing to put in the work. And that is...PERCEPTION.

#27, from a standpoint of perception, you are correct. In truth, however, those of us who know better, know the party doesn’t cater to simply white males. But in politics, perception is everything. And the Democrats KNOW this. This is why they went out and "defined" Romney early on. This is why they have been pushing massive propaganda for over 45 years. It works. We don't even reach out to people in need. How many Republicans (pols or citizens) go out to poor minority neighborhoods and listen to their problems and try to help them come up with solutions?? Maybe less than a fraction of 1%. The Democrats do it all the time. They never give real solutions because they don't have any (and, in truth, they don't want them to improve their lives). But the people PERCEIVE that care because they are there. It means a lot to a starving dog to throw him a bone once in a while. He’ll stay loyal even if you beat him every day and keep him chained to a pole in the rain. We don't have to pander. We can be honest but we need to reach out and help educate people and help them with solutions. Instead, we spend all our time making noise about certain religious beliefs and imposing them on women when many don’t even have the same beliefs regarding early term pregnancy. That said, why are you not surprised that they won't even listen?

I am with a number of the previous posters. I have given up on the ability of Americans to govern themselves. The fools (my actual sentiments are much stronger) who voted for these destroyers will reap what they have sown. The cities (obama voters en masse) will pay the most severe price for their selfishness, greed, and ignorance. They will rues the day Obama became president again, but I doubt even then will they be smart enough to figure it out. In the meantime I have learned a lesson from my countrymen. I will share no more. I will prepare and protect myself and my family, and the hell with anybody else..

Unfortunately, people are reluctant to change without a bit of pain involved. For the good of the Republic, Pubs in the House should stand aside, vote "present", and let NerØbama's agenda pass through. The consequences of his proven-failed policies will inflict pain on the electorate that hopefully will wake them from their stupor. Bitter medicine, to be sure, but sometimes that is what is called for.

Although I, too, believe the election was stolen with rigged machines, I think a Romney presidency would only have delayed the inevitable. We'd already lost the country beforehand to powerful forces that have replaced faith in God and reason with faith in government and ideology. That's why there is no political solution to our nation's decline; it simply isn't a political problem. It's a cultural one.

Every one of us must stand boldly for faith and truth whenever and however we can find a way to do so; we need to fight to regain our influence in all the institutions that are currently dominated by the left. We're not just fighting for more voters any more. We're fighting for the soul of our country.

when you look at vote total remember in 2008 both campaigns made big national ad buys. This year most of the ad buys were local markets in swing state. The only national ad I saw the last weekend was a big Obama buy of the Colin Powell endorsement. That could explain reduced turnout. Low interest voters outside of the swing states hardly knew their was a presidential election.

Yesterday I lovingly folded up my flag and mailed it with a $5. check to FlagKeepers for them to respectfully dispose of it. For years we have donated $100. for the local 4th of July fireworks celebration. No more. I also threw away all of my 4th of July decorations and my red and white striped shirts. I am rather anonymous on this thread, and you and my husband are the only ones that will know this. This is because my very dear son in law is an army officer, a West Point graduate, and I don't want to add to his burdens. As I was weeping Tuesday night I felt a change occur in my heart. America is no longer my people. All the people around the world that have a true hunger and desire for the truth are like little candles, and I was a part of them. The churches are the big part of this picture, but also anyone who truly desires the truth over everything else, and that even includes some muslims, agnostics, and present atheists. God is going to move as things get darker, people seeking truth will come to know Jesus as a result of the shaking that will come, and ultimately we Christians have to rejoice in that. Life here is just temporary anyhow. On a personal note, in the last 2 days I feel closer to the body of Christ than I have in a very long time. I didn't really go to church for about 10 years after my old church blew up and we all discovered that the pastor was a lying, cheating, ******. We found a new, lovely church, but it still felt unsafe to open my heart until now. I feel much more cohesive with them now.

We've been warned:

For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off.

I had hoped we would get a change from these terrible times. Looking on the bright side, we don't have riots in all the major cities, by the Obama morons. We don't have to watch endless news stories about "the homeless", and there are some vacant chairs on the deck of our good ship the USSTitanic.

Ditto #80....I'm bereft that the one man that had a chance...a chance...to turn our economy around will not become our president.

I think Obama assured his reelection by making the economy so bad that people were so afraid that they would never have a good job or were afraid they were going to lose the one they have, they wanted to be sure the government dole would be there. Pure nearsighted selfishness.

Tomorrow, I plan on talking to my two sons and discouraging them from joining the military. It's very clear to me that the military no longer protects our right to vote, it's nothing more than protecting a woman's right to abort her baby. 4 years ago, maybe, this country was worth fighting for. But now? Teens and on up are sleeping with hundreds, we have aborted 40illion babies, the Democrat party booed God. The Bible says 'at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bend'. Send my kid out to die for Sandra Fluke, Lena Dinham or Brian Williams? Nope.

Hey, lets get one thing straight. To all of you morons who claim we want Political Party Purity in the Republican Party, GET A CLUE. We ran the moderate George W. Bush, who won, and who's legacy we allowed to tarnish the Republican party. Then we backed the Wonderful Moderate John McCain who No One with a room temperature IQ agreed with, but we backed him anyway, and he lost. Now, We have the Moderate's Moderate of Mitt Romney, who ran the Text Book Perfect Campaign, and lost to an easily defeat-able and weak incumbent. So, for all of you people who claim we want Party Purity can go suck an Egg. We tried it your way, we went with the "Electable One" and guess what, ALL OF YOU WERE WRONG, Turns out, Mitt Romney was not electable at all. Something ANYONE who looked at his actual record could have told you. Mitt Romney is a professional political loser. 25 tries for office, only 6 wins. So, in 2016 the cries of moderate losers demanding we dilute the party even further should be ignored. Anyone who claims a candidate is the "Electable" one should be dealt with in the harshest manner possible. Learn it, or repeat it. Again.

Our elections were rigged in swing states. How can we have 30+ Republican governors and a House majority, and Obama reelected?

"Early (and often) voting, and voting by illegals, such as the busloads of Somalis, and rigged voting machines, and fraud on a grand scale, "reelected" Barack Hussein Obama.

Daily Mail [UK], by Edward Lucas    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/16/2014 6:25:55 PM     Post Reply
Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth
on Military than U.S. in 2013

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

When William Hague, our Foreign Secretary, warns that Russia is quietly orchestrating anti-government protests in eastern Ukraine, his words should be taken as a wake-up call to all those other EU foreign ministers who are none too keen on standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s newfound enthusiasm for Tsarist-style military adventures. [Snip] While both Mr Kerry and Mr Hague are coy about precisely how they know the Russians are up to no good in Ukraine, it is no secret that the FSB, Russia´s equivalent of the CIA, is committed to keeping Ukraine in a state of heightened instability for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
