The Principal Enemy
PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/31/2013 4:53:57 AM

Back in the seventies when I was a lefty and under the sway, like the new mayor of the city of New York, of various Central and South American marxists, we used to speak of “el enemigo principal,” the principal enemy. (Snip)The principal enemy for the right and the center-right is now Hillary Clinton, the vastly favored frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. She is so far in front, in fact, that her competitors are not even in hailing distance. Hillary is the one who can consolidate and solidify the “gains” of the Obama era in a way Obama

Must Read. The planned shift of power from Lightworker to The Smartest Woman In The World is well underway, and must be exposed to be stopped.

Obama´s s called gains are what´s ruining this country.To unify and solidify those gains means were into the 2020´s before any hope can be restored.
The only thing Hillary has to run on is she´s a woman. If obama gets his way by hook or by crook,there won´t be anything left for her to champion except free abortions in supermarkets.

We need to get away from people who have no governing or executive experience because there´s no way they can show they were a success or failure.Obama won on personality and novelty,bad reasons to elect someone.

Hillary´s time and era has passed her by.We need a new face with a different direction and solutions.A quagmire of failure can´t go on forever.Her husbands success was based on rubber stamping republican ideas.

The "Principle Enemy" is not Hillary Clinton. The "Principle Enemy" is the media.

Hillary Clinton is hopelessly under qualified to be president of the United States for several reason:

-- ObamaCare is the greatest mess the Democrats have ever created. Hillary tried to foist on the nation its forerunner, HillaryCare, when she and Bill were in the White House.

-- Benghazi is the worst disaster to befall any American diplomat in U.S. history. Hillary was Secretary of State. The buck should stop there.

-- If anyone starts turning over rocks, they might uncover Whitewater and the mysteriously appearing billing records.

-- Then there´s the profit on Cattle Futures.

The list goes on and on and would be more than enough to sink any candidate who received even cursory media attention. But our media will be a cheerleader for Hillary.

This is indeed frightening for two reasons.

1. In any coup, the first entity to be taken over is communication/media. She has it in her corner.
2. The liberal/demn machine is so corrupt and has such a lock on the voting process it will take a massive overwhelming win to counteract the fraud. Conservatives are warn out and have yet to see the full impact of this massive progressive take-over. A win depends on a huge turnout at the polls in November. 2014 will tell us the true story!

Mr. Simon, the "Enemy" never was Obama nor is it now Hilary. It´s totalitarianism just as it was in 1941, 1775, 1688. Perhaps at the very core of the battle is over an attempted rejection of the entire age of Enlightenment of which our American experiment had been the capstone.

We as a society are rejecting Locke, Voltaire, Jefferson, in favor of Alinsky, Soros, Marx, Lenin. We are so much smarter and sophisticated now you see.

I am convinced that the only way to defeat Hillary is a massive turnout by traditional Americans. We must go after anyone who wants the country put back on an even keel including all those disgruntled democrats who are feeling that government is oppressive. The common sense message of the Tea Party will resonate with democrats and republicans. People are sick of political parties that do nothing to solve our problems. The candidates who reach out with real common sense solutions will succeed. The establishment republicans and democrats have proven they are either unwilling or unable to make the changes needed. They are mired in the status quo and people are sick of it. They are wise to their tricks of saying one thing and doing another. It is time for we the people to find their voice. Got tea?

Hillary and Bill both look at least ten years older than their true age. So called Baby-Boomers are sick of them and remember the lies and deception. The younger generations will not see any benefit to electing a pair of creepers that are older than their parents and grandparents. The Clinton brand will drown with Barry Obama.

We can all argue who is the worst enemy.. the media, or Hillary.. but what the article is trying to say, is that we Republicans seem to spend all our ammunition fighting who is more "right" or conservative, when we should be uniting and turn our barrels at the ones we know are ruining our democracy.

Look for the MSM to try to encourage this at every turn. If we had a few more members who could express the truth about Hillary without worry of being called a misogynist,(Trey Gowdy) we´d be alot better off. And this doesnt mean he should run for president.. he is doing his job!

She wasn´t a good candidate in 2008 and eight years-and Benghazi- have done nothing to improve her.

The only thing she has going for her are a slice of the electorate-mostly women of her own age0 who will only see that "first woman president" meme.

I agree, #13. We have a common enemy and that enemy isn´t inside our party. Once we prevail in 2014 and 2016, various groups can unite to get rid of those they don´t like, but first we have to prevent the Dems from remaining (or gaining) in power in the Senate, the House and the White House.

She will be 69 years old in 2016 and in terrible physical condition. The entire Clinton establishment has seen its day and is equally fat, old and happy. Her ability to communicate is poor. The younger generations must be reminded of her total lack of accomplishment other than being a former President´s wife. A Clinton election in 2016 is a national disaster. Remember Franklin, "It´s a republic, if you can keep it."

It is fitting that the best the corrupt Socialist DemocRAT party can offer for their next Presidential candidate is the most corrupt, inept, totally unqualified traitor they could find. One thing we do know by now, you don´t get to the top of the DemocRAT party without being an unusually good liar and a Socialist criminal. If there could be anyone worse than Obama, the ´RATS would pick this screaming Harridan. On top of that she is in failing health. Sasquatch V 2.0?

Roger L Simon is an accomplished man, being the first Hollywood writer to come out of his own commie cubicle and author "TURNING RIGHT AT HOLLYWOOD AND VINE". Don´t laugh, that took a lot of guts when you face reality and KNOW Hollywood is entirely Communist
controlled (absolute proof of this: they NEVER make movies about Communism .... EVER).
So, cheers to Roger for identifying the Hag as enemy, and for ending all the small government groups arguing amongst themselves, and coming out, as one, against the enemy. There is one weakness in his declaration.

As former CEO founder of PJ Media, Roger IS press.
In his worthy declaration, like most other brothers and sisters in the press, he does not include the press and media in his attack! Hilary, the aging, tired out, multi decade co murderess, is the enemy, for sure, but only because she has the, also tired, aging MSM begging for the next dreamy tid bit of support. But for the Hilary worshipping main stream press and media, Benghazi Hilary would be history!

There must be two major co agreeable enemies from here on out to grab the almost traitor RINOS to our side.
Take note: Rubio, McCain, Boehner, Cantor, Mc Connell,
all you semi commie fuzz balls, Get in, or get out !

Wow! It seems like only yesterday that Hillary Clinton was being touted as "the smartest woman on earth" and she was running so far ahead in the polls that it seemed that we wouldn´t even need an election. She was destined to get all the Lo-Fo and Mo-Fo votes and would be our next President. But wait - here comes this dude walking in off the street that nobody knew anything about and nobody could uncover anything about. And look what happened. The Lo-Fo´s and the Mo-Fo´s nominated him and elected him twice (with a little fraudulent voting I am sure).

Now here comes Hillary again and the lefties are beginning to hype her as "the smartest woman on earth" and coming up with polls showing her so far ahead that nobody can catch her. So what are the Lo-Fo´s and the Mo-Fo´s going to do this time.
? Would anybody be surprised if Al Sharpton or Reverend Wright is our next President?

#13, I agree, especially about Trey Gowdy. He was on Greta last night and was fearless in what he said regarding the NYT article, Hillary and Benghazi. I think he´s a great congressman. Unfortunately, I heard he wasn´t going to seek reelection. That would be a great loss to the GOP. I hope he changes his mind.

FTA: " It’s a war between those who favor cutting government by seventy percent versus those who favor cutting it by fifty or sixty, ignoring those who want to expand it by a hundred."

Looking at the republican record from 2000-06, I don´t see those who want to cut 50%. The republicans failed to stop the housing/financial meltdown, even though it was predictable and they were in power. But they did give us Medicaid Part D, banned regular light bulbs, No Child Left Behind, and lost precious blood in Iraq and Afghanistan so as not to offend terrorists.

Boehner and company now want to give us "immigration" reform. The laws are not being enforced now, unemployment is high and wages are depressed. But who cares about those Americans?

Hillary got her but handed to her in 2008. I am not going to worry about her now. 2016 is a long way off. We need to be on guard for gangs of eight that are poised to damage us now.

Don´t count O´Bungles out yet, he still has a tooth or two left in his head and can cause a lot of damage this year. If he somehow gets amnesty through, we will have 30 million more guaranteed democrat votes to overcome. If he gets a huge income tax increase through, it will be very hard to rescind it once the government has their greedy hands on more money to prop up obamacare. If he somehow steals himself a third term, he will definitely complete his career of mayhem and destruction.

Then there´s Iran, North Korea, Russia China ... all the countries who have lost their last ounce of respect for us.

But if this greasy-haired alcoholic somehow slithers into the White House, I´ll be leaving the country because it won´t be America any longer and those who vote her in will deserve her.

Thank you Roger for perfectly expressing your thoughts. I couldn´t agree more.

I pray GOP infighters will come to their senses and start wondering if this inner turmoil is not the covert work of the left. That´s right, the left.
Remember why Clinton won in 92? There was a split ticket on the right. Let´s not repeat this thinking again.
The only way we win and beat the beast in 2016 is by standing as a united front.

#27 – Indeed. What, if any part of it, might be included in ObamaCare. A C-SPAN video link in Daniel Greenfield’s 11-16-13 article (HillaryCare: “If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep Your Plan”) discloses Hillary’s 2007 campaign quotation: “Now I know, my Republican opponents will try to equate healthcare for all Americans with government-run health care. Well, don’t let them fool us again. This is not government-run, there will be no new bureaucracies. You can keep the doctors you know and trust, you keep the insurance you have, if you like it.”

It will be tempting to run but Hillary will save her chits for Chelsea.

Heidi Cruz is our secret weapon,IMHO.

And on another note, intraparty "polishing" of our message is a good thing. Authenticity and true love of country will rule in 2014 and ´16. We will be the un-Obama party and that, too, will be a good thing.

Simon´s main point is spot on. Republicans better start agreeing to disagree and start marching together with a unified, consistent message or we will lose again. I´m sick of watching the DC Repubs fall at the Left´s feet and "accommodate" while attacking Republicans who say what they mean and stand up and fight back. Those of us outside the revered Beltway are not the enemy. Wise up you DC hypocrites and get out of your stupid bubble.

FTA: “It’s a war between those who favor cutting government by seventy percent versus those who favor cutting it by fifty or sixty, ignoring those who want to expand it by a hundred.”

Mr. Simon has that sentence backwards. It’s a war between those who favor cutting government versus those who ignore its expansion of a hundred percent. You betcha, Hillary is the primary enemy, but only because she is the current embodiment of the communist juggernaut. The base is ready to fight and has been ready to fight since 2009.

He concludes with, “Tell the truth (well) and end this. And end the hostility toward each other before you destroy all of us and our children’s future.” Good advice for the GOP Old Guard. It’s the establishment Republicans that have their guns trained on the base. All we are asking is that McConnell and Boehner “tell the truth (well) and end this.”

As a former Republican, including vice president of the Kingsbury County, SD Republican Party, good luck with "coming together" with the GOP to defeat Hillary. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, ball cap and DVD. I´ll still vote for the most conservative candidate and that will certainly be the one running against Hillary but I´m done with the GOP group hugs. I´ve been stabbed too many times by Boehner, Graham, McCain, McConnell, Rove, et al. If you think a GOP win and majority is a victory for the nation, you´re dreaming. It ain´t. Besides, if the GOP couldn´t beat the biggest gimme in history in 2012, kiss off 2014 and 2016. If you´re ticked, give me your address and I´ll send you my pom-poms.

So Hitlery is so great maybe she can stop hiding her college records and thesis. Marxist like obama´s.

I was frustrated when Romney team didn´t credit Hillarycare for being origin of obamacare but politics are so tricky. Some things are ignored so it doesn´t inflame the lo fo´s which is most of the voters IMO.

We are such herd animals and so out of touch with anything but TV and video gaming--UFC-rap music, Hollyweird giving each other awards.

One thing about it, Clinton did read the polls. Imagine a globe trotting first spouse. Political showmen extraordinaire moving the sheeple with not always polished propaga but never ending drama.

Will they have to bring back the White House china or will the middle class have to buy us some new stuff to steal.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

Construction on Saudi Arabia´s Kingdom Tower, which will be one whopping, expense kilometer tall, is set to commence next week, according to local reports. The Kingdom tower will measure 3,280 feet when completed, which stretches 568 feet taller than the current Guinness World Record holder for tallest man-made construction, the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai. The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea. If you´re afraid of heights, you´ll definitely want to know the 200-story building will feature a massive 98-foot terrace jutting from the side of the 157th floor. The Kingdom Tower won´t come

Holder’s undermining of the
law deserving of contempt

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

Have you ever been blamed for a murder? Speak out against jihad terror, and you probably will be. It has happened to me three times (so far): 3. Reza Aslan blames me for murder of Muslim woman in California. Last Thursday in El Cajon, California, an Iraqi Muslim named Kassim Alhimidi was found guilty of murdering his wife, Shaima Alawadi, after she had told him that she wanted a divorce. Before Alhimidi was arrested, this murder was widely reported as an “Islamophobic hate crime”: a note was found by Alawadi’s body that read, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.” Leftists and Islamic

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
