So… Barack Obama won re-election to the office of President of the United States, and Republican challenger Mitt Romney has slipped into obscurity faster than any candidate I’ve ever seen. Aside from futile, quasi-navel gazing posturing on the part of Congress over the “fiscal cliff” upon which the American economy is perched, news coverage since the election has been rife with diversion and non-issues.We’re already sick of hearing autopsies of the Romney campaign. Suffice it to say that there is a host of reasons that Romney should not have been the GOP nominee,
Voter fraud is a non-issue. If it was an issue, then the fact that the guy running for Presidend is a FRAUD in every sense of the word and NOT eligible for the office would have been at least looked into.
It boggles my mind that every Republican with the abiliiy to do something about this travesty.... this defrauding of America... this trashing of our Constitution... has allowed himself to be intimidated into not saying a word.
Why has obama published TWO forged / fake birth certificates ? (Who cares ??) Why is obama using a FAKE social security numbe (who cares ???)
Here is a guy with a mandate to stay the course and complete the job (which he started 4 years ago) of DESTROYING our Nation and making the life of every single person in America MORE miserable...
and we just let it happen... not even looking or talking about the probability that he is a USURPER !
We really can´t blame obama... he is a low life con man and is going to behave exactly as one would expect a low life con man to behave... We have to blame ourselves... We have become sheep and have elected a bunch of COWARDS as our "leaders" and representatives.
When the party that has the power to investigate and punish voter fraud is the same party that does all of the voter fraud, thinking that anything will ever be done about voter fraud is a pipe dream.
I guess the Republican´s only hope is to get as good with voter fraud as the Demon-RATS. Of course, the Demon-RATS have decades of experience under their belts, so it´s going to be really hard to catch up.
But it´s a mute point anyway. As soon as NØbama gives blanket amnesty and citizenship to 20,000,000 illegal alliens -- all immediately Demon-RAT voters -- there won´t be a red state left in this country. Plenty of new volunteers (along with the New Black Panthers, La Raza, Planned Parenthood, etc) to join NØbama´s new Brown Shirt Militia. With the best weaponry our tax dollars can buy, and the sheer numbers they can throw at us, and their merciless lack of respect for life (at least for anglo male life), a civil war is just another pipe dream...
The once proud Republican Party was told to sit down and shut up by the Roves and the O´Reily´s of the Faux Conservatives.
I was chastised before on this site about not supporting Romney during the primaries, but this man couldn´t even bring himself to discuss the topics of the day (all I heard was how he could create jobs) much less the issues surrounding the birth certificate, SS number, Frank Marshall, Bill Ayres, and the host of other campaign killers.
I also asked my son who returned from Afghanistan if the military would ever help the government control the citizens in any resurgent movement against tyranny. His answer was yes they would because all the officers are so afraid of losing their jobs and becoming homeless that they would obey the order to arrest us.
From poster #4 above, there was a country started by freedom loving people from all over the world, it´s gone now. RIP USA
Our only remedy now is for the total collapse of the system and the beginning of WIII, only then will the men of this country stand up fight because if they don´t, their lives will be snuffed out and their women and children will be put into slavery, or worse. Without a manufacturing base the run up to this conflict will be so horrible that not even the Progressives will be able to survive.
Solution: begin building your own protection, learn survival tactics. Read up on where to find natural edible plants, and how to purify water. You can only carry so many cans of soup, but knowledge is light and travels fast. Teach your young ones and friends this knowledge; forget counting on the spiritual powers, the lord only helps those who help themselves. Me; Democrat/Libertarian who voted for Romney
Whether constitutionalists can ever regain the federal government looks difficult - even establishment Republicans avoid the word "constitution." It seems there might be a better shot at regaining control of some states. State nullification of unconstitutional federal law, at the cost of losing federal dollars of course, would be one weapon in the armory.
I beg to differ #8. Bush canned a number of federal prosecutors who would not look into the subject. Which then brought about months and months of caterwauling from the dems and press about politically motivated firings.
Erik gives a variation of Nader´s observation. The US is a one party state with two major parties.
Or, we have two parties which pretend to differ but act the same after election day.
Or something. And Nader was right. And Erik is right.
BUT! Why bash Romney? He is a decent guy. Or as decent as one can be in that filth.
He ran his campaign. He lost. Obscurity? So what? Maybe he is on a nice vacation.
Why did he lose? Fraud? Doesn´t matter. He lost.
Civil War? The real kind? Forget it. CW is madness. Beer talk. Idiocy.
Washington can´t be restrained or changed that way. It would emerge stronger and more tyrannical.
There is nothing Obama and the Washington establishment would like better than an excuse to simple kill millions they regard as undesirable.
Millions - who for convenience we could label RS, Red Staters - who object to the absolute state.
Anything like violent resistance plays into their strength. The large, well trained, and superbly equipped police and military. They can and do monitor communications and have total control of mass media.
The dozen or so influential conservatives like Rush Limbaugh could be arrested in minutes and in a secret prison by sundown.
In every political group of five in America one of you is a government informer.
You might say the outlook is grim. IMO "grim" is too optimistic.
What can be done instead? I don´t know. Yet trying what can´t work is worse.
The CFP is worth reading. A good rule is to ignore headlines. The writer doesn´t compose them.
Read (and watch on youtube) Catherine Austin Fitts "chrismartenson.com/blog" January 30, 2011: "Straight talk with Catherine Austin Fitts: We are the victims of a financial coup d´etat". At the end of the third paragraph she writes: "Finally, the members of the Administration have no way of guaranteeing their safety and the safety of their families if they defy orders of those who have the weaponry and power to enforce their will by any means necessary". Consider "by any means necessary" as applied to the actions of those who call themselves "government" at least since 1861.
Probably not civil war but maybe secession. I can see a state like Texas trying to secede. Would the Feds fight it? Sure but financially at first. They would stop all the government checks..SS, EPB cards, etc. SS could be handled since there is no money set aside for it anyway. The state would simply start holding the FICA funds it self. The same with the withholding taxes. They would go to the state itself.
Would it be allowed to happen? No. If the seceding state looked like it was going to be successful, you can bet that force would be used. Now whether the military could be made to kill Americans is another question. It didn´t stop them in 1861.
This civil war talk is silly. There are no "red" states and no "blue" states; there are states with a majority of red voters and states with a majority of blue voters. Some of them flip back and forth between election cycles. North Carolina went blue in 2008. It went red in 2012. Maybe it will flip again in four years.
Texas? 41.34% of Texans voted for Obama. Suppose they object to secession or civil war? What are the Texans who voted for Romney going to do with them? Shoot them? Force them out of the state at gunpoint? Order them to move to Michigan or Maine?
The southern states were just as divided in 1861. There are lots of records in my small home town about some of our citizens leaving to move up north when secession was voted for in Georgia. Some of these were prominent citizens who were adamantly against secession. The mountain counties here were pro-union and their delegates voted against secession.
Get enough people mad enough or despairing of what is happening to their country then add looming economic disaster and anything can happen.
Do a modified Galt: Just move out of the cities, live simply, give up the two income model, have lots of kids (with a stay-at-home parent), teach them conservative values. Subsidize your adult children to do likewise.
Doing this you will counter the current demographic trends and also join the 47% who pay no net Federal taxes. Get that up to 85% and this will leave most of the Federal tax bill to the Rich Libs.
The Republican Party, in its quest to better represent its constituency, has launched a questionnaire to feel the pulse of the voters by asking specific questions in order to streamline their message. The message is always very important, the actual implementation of goals depends on the elected representatives and senators and the powerful lobby in Washington. The GOP wants to know if “Americans support efforts to reform entitlements, cut spending, and put our nation on track to a balanced federal budget without raising taxes.” Judging by the anemic economy, the weak and statistically manipulated GDP,
Completely lost in the understandable uproar yesterday in excerpts from Ben Urwand’s upcoming book, The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler is one of Hollywood’s dirtiest little ongoing secrets. The dark and dirty side of the Hollywood of the present day may never have come to light had it not been for Bill Donohue and the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Hollywood letting Nazis censor scripts, removing credits from Jews and getting movies stopped before reaching the screen was Hollywood circa 1930s. Rich Hollywood stars and producers have much to feel guilty about, and perhaps this is part of the reason
The most effective way to survive President Barack Obama is to keep right on doing what he doesn’t want you to do. In one word: Communicate. These are the days when Communication is more important than most anything else. Communicate to as many others as you can by every means possible. Communication is how Obama keeps his control over America. Patriots taking a page out of Obama’s book will one day turn the tables on the most anti-American president in history. While he takes away jobs and deliberately stokes racial unrest, Obama wants you to suffer in silence. Don’t comply.
Move over Jane Fonda, President Barack Obama has all but toppled you from that iconic anti-aircraft gun perch as as America’s top Communist Viet Nam booster. Talking to reporters as he stood beside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang yesterday, Obama told his biggest whopper to date:...”we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.” (Fox News, July 25, 2013) (Snip) Truth is Ho Chi Minh was about as inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson as Obama is.
Putting your private parts out on public display is a guarantee for overnight celebrity. Scandalous as he is, Anthony D-for-dong-Weiner counts on the celebrity of being married to Huma Abedin, a longtime close aide to Hillary Clinton, in membership of the celebrity class that now rocks the world. Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Barack Obama and asundry others in Extroverts-Are-Us Inc. are the darlings of today’s celebrity class. Celebrity status is so blindly admired by the masses in today’s pop culture that Obama is using celebs to make Obamacare a fait accompli.
Of course, Obama will do everything humanly possible to bail out Detroit—in one fashion, or another. There can be no question about it. After all, Detroit IS spelled: U-N-I-O-N. There are a host of municipalities standing by, holding their collective breath as they wait to see what the federal government will do about Detroit. IF the US government writes a check to Detroit, get ready. The flood gates will open and, in the twinkling of an eye, the US Treasury will be bone dry—or at least
Like the long ago Stella of movie fame, President Barack Obama seems to be losing his groove with his own dissident army of low information voters on the race riot march. Proof of Obama’s gargantuan groove dive: At Friday’s White House press conference: “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.” Obama-style one upmanship after saying: “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon”. This should have been all that Rev. Al Sharpton needed to take millions of protesters to the streets in the beginning of what originally looked like an America
The latest liberal idiocy involves white college kids apologizing for their “white privilege” by declaring “I am not Trayvon Martin”. Of course they’re more likely to get assaulted going through a black neighborhood, than the Trayvon Martins are going through a white neighborhood, but facts like that stopped mattering years ago. So let me take my own shot at it. I am not Trayvon Martin. Not just because if confronted by a local Latino homeowner, I’m not likely to pick up a fight with him and beat him until he shoots me.
“We have just learned that Larry Grathwohl was found dead in his Cincinnati apartment,” colleague Doug Hagmann wrote in an email to Canada Free Press (CFP) this evening. “Many of us are in shock tonight,” Tina Trent wrote in her blog. The lifelong courage of Larry Grathwohl brought him legions of fans, many of whom will be heartbroken upon hearing this news. It was Grathwohl who awakened America to the inherent dangers of Barack Obama in the run up to the 2008 presidential election when he described a meeting he attended where Bill Ayers and Weather Underground
US Attorney General Eric Holder has geared up and is apparently in full combat mode for a righteous war on violence against the young. Yes, this is the same Eric Holder who was party to the shipment of guns to Mexico in the Fast and Furious scandal, which cost hundreds of Mexicans and Americans their lives. And this is the same scoundrel who is still in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents related to that awful debacle. THAT Eric Holder has now audaciously appointed himself the great protector of the young and innocent, as reported:
It should go without saying that love and pride of country should be the first qualifications for anyone seeking the presidency of America. President Barack Hussein Obama came into the power of the White House as an activist—pushed by activists. Foreboding for the future of America, Obama will always be an activist . He doesn’t know what else to be because he’s always been an activist. Even as an Illinois senator, he merely wore the title without doing any of the heavy lifting.In the day-to-day running America, Obama leans on the tools of activism and has been doing
A lie is a lie in any language. A lie is a lie in any country. And on today’s political front there is no bigger liar than President Barack Hussein Obama. Obama, who reiterated only yesterday that the U.S. is not aligned with and is not supporting any particular political party or group while condemning the ongoing violence across Egypt, is lying and his condemnation of the violence merely the far away mewlings of a paper tiger. Obama gave Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi $250-million only last March 5th. Obama also gave Morsi 200 Abrams tanks and 12 F-16s delivered in
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda
Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.
