A Sudden Realization
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 6/10/2014 9:45:16 AM

Ron Fournier reveals that yet another highly placed Democrat has quit on the president. (Snip) That doesn’t mean the Left can’t change. It only signifies that the shift, when it comes, will be no ordinary change of mind. It will be more akin to a Pauline conversion than a matter of fact acknowledgment of a mistake. To non-ideologues being proved wrong is nothing important. You just admit to error and correct yourself. By contrast, because ideology defines the self-importance of ideologues, to confess you’ve been took is a humiliation beyond description. The only thing likely to precipitate such a change

Comments:
In this essay Wretchard wonders out loud when the more intelligent liberals will realize that they´ve been mercilessly played by Obama, who makes what is to them soothing sounds of assent but listens to them not one iota, nor even cares what they think. He´s got the wheel; they´re along for the ride with a plastic child´s steering wheel in their hands, going "Udd´n, udd´n, udd´n" while the Lightbringer, smiling a knowing smile, steers them and the Nation toward eternal. darkness. At what point do they say, "Let me off right here"?

FTA: "They respect and admire Obama but believe that his presidency has been damaged by his shortcomings as a leader. . ."
This makes NO sense to me. It sounds as if the supposed Knights of the Round Table are finally realizing they are serfs.

Right-wingers have been dreaming of mass desertion of Stinky by leftists since Day One.

It hasn´t happened - - and it won´t happen. Stinky is them - - and they are Stinky.

Leftists don´t have the intellects or the curiosity or the courage to abandon their leaders. They march in lockstep - - and wait to be told what to say next.

Mass desertion just ain´t going to happen.

FTA: The Left is a religion. It looks away from the obvious sins of its leaders the way earlier generations of churchgoers sometimes averted their gaze from the misdeeds of their own. The Left will abandon the Left around the time the Wahabis abandon Wahabism.

The leftists have gotten rid (by design) of any Blue Dog Democrats that were in the party. Their may be a few of them grumbling, but until they become concerned about their own survival everything will remain the same. This is an excellent article.

Walk into any room full of leftist ideologues and you see immediately why they have trouble ´changing´. They aren´t connected to reality. Their goal is moral superiority and they believe that they achieve that by believing in the undesirable and the unattainable. If they give up their futile and counterproductive quest they lose their fancied identity.

How is this for wishy-washy?:

They respect and admire Obama but believe that his presidency has been damaged by his shortcomings as a leader; his inattention to details of governing; his disengagement from the political process and from the public; his unwillingness to learn on the job; and his failure to surround himself with top-shelf advisers who are willing to challenge their boss as well as their own preconceived notions.

Nowhere are illegalities or unconstitutional acts mentioned. Just vague disappointments and realizations of his tragic fallibility.

"Disengagement", "unwillingness", "failure to surround himself...", "shortcomings as a leader".

Are Democrats that willing to give him a pass for simple incompetence when the real problem is his treason and lawlessness?

Self preservation is instinctive. At some point, they will all realize they have been led down a path of destruction.

The only question is whether they will do something before it is too late. Many say no, but I´m not so sure. When Diane Feinstein speaks out against Obama, something major is happening inside Dem circles.

He may have actually gone too far this time. We can hope...

Of course they know they are being played. They are insiders to the criminal actions committed by Obama and they join in willingly. Blame Obama and take the heat and attention off of Hillary´s criminal past.

It works every election cycle.

#6 I believe Dianne Feinstein has spoken out against Obama in the past only to flip the following week or so and say she was wrong. She has seen the light and realized that Obama was correct the entire time. I do think Feinstein could, if she wanted, lead a large group of liberals away from Obama. I´m just not sure she will not weaken when the administration offers something she really wants. He plays the game well and all the other politicians can´t keep up with the daily onslaught of changing subjects.

Every leftist has a conceit at the center of their ideology, namely, that THEY are superior to everyone else and thus are charged with the obligation and life mission to "save" those persons/things which are dependent on them for survival. Black people. Illegal immigrants. Whales. The environment. Poor, recyclable, discarded objects. You name it, they HAVE to save it.

Why? Because they, and they alone, are intelligent enough and caring enough to take on that life mission.

And if anyone doesn´t feel that way about ALL those things, then they are the enemy, and they need to be destroyed. Moreover, if they select a leader who reflects their own "savior pathology", and he happens to mess up, well, they´ll just find another leader like themselves and hope he/she doesn´t mess up too. Etc.

Ergo, Obama. And ergo, Hillary next.

The idea was floated on another site last week of the dems actually initiating impeachment. I commented then about how much more feckless that would make the imaginary opposition party, and the idea still scares me. How better to endear themselves to the nation than to reverse course and throw the king out of office?

These are the same folks who believe that Communism can still work - it just needs to be implemented better.

Reagan had the right approach: just defeat them. We win, they lose: defeat them.

Enough talk and flailing of arms: impeach - now. Not after November, now.

The author states that, "Leaving the Left is like being a man without a country." Wasn´t hard for me to do at all. My transformation began when I became a parent and wanted my children to grow up breathing "FREE," not heavy-laden and burdened by a government that had so transformed America that it was barely recognizable any longer. I started voting for more and more Republicans.

It was during the "Clinton Shafting of America" that I finally burst completely out of that deep, dark cocoon of Liberalism into the beautiful, spectacular Conservative that I am today. So, Thank you, Bill Clinton, for adding one more Proud Conservative to the world, and my sincere appreciation to Barack Obama for making sure that I never backslide!

Ida Lou Pino (#2) makes an excellent point...Sadly, Lord Obama could be apprehended this afternoon sticking up Gandel´s Liquors on Pennsylvania Avenue, and still count on 100% support from The Dark Side´s evildoers in The United States Congress. Case in point---Remember their massive "rally" and show of support when America´s 42nd POTUS, The Duke of Horndog, was "caught" with his pants around his ankles in The Oval Office?

#15 I agree with the article that it is difficult, but I too did it, and have become steadily more conservative over the 35 years since. My friends and family, something like 80% of them, remain solidly in the leftist bubble. We don´t talk about the issues at all. I treasure the handful of friends and couple of family members who are on my side - we can actually talk.

The only Democrats capable of realisation and change did so in the aftermath of 9/11 and are now called Republicans or Libertarians. Perhaps 1 in a billion of those comatose enough to vote for Obama are able to now "wake up", but that´s an optimistic estimate. No, Democrats claiming disappointment in Dear Leader Barack Hussein will only transfer the same idiotic admiration they bestowed upon Him to some new, even more "progressive" Democrat. A belief in "Hope and Change" indicates a mind where growth is no longer possible.

#2 and many others are absolutely right: fascists/commies/leftists vet their ranks very thoroughly. And don´t forget the money factor as well: the crony, monopoly capitalism allows the 1 percenters to get richer much easier than regular open competition. Stark examples are Russian and China economies - the party functioneers and their ilk became millionaires and billionaires overnight. My point, they are not ideologues, but greedy immoral scum.

I´ve often thought over the past several years that the Dems and their useful idiots who ´pushed´ Obama upon us, did America´s black population a great disservice. There are many courageous, brilliant, good and patriotic black men who would be good, maybe great, presidents. As it turns out, Obama (the first black to occupy our White House) will go down in history - perhaps for all time - as the worst, most disastrous and destructive president in our history.

Forgetting emotion, anger, disgust, imagine Obama, as a Communist, an excellent, model, propagandist, who is getting in all the destruction he and his cabal want to commit against the People. Imagine his success following his religion, Communism, and his Islamic interests as a brilliant cover up, a distraction from his Marxist religion.
Read about Lenin, the originator of modern propaganda. it´s a start. Girlie boy golf, absurd video with feather light weights, the perfect way, to distract, like Slick Willie´s girlstry to wreck the good game golf, like the golf cheating Slick Willie did, another brilliant distraction.

If it´s true, Washington Communists, are happy with his destructive progress. Allen West stated there are 80 Communists in Congress. Imagine!, nobody touched it.
The movies and TV never touch the word, Communism.
Rule of Silence. That silence, too, is an important element
of Communist propaganda. Obama, and cabal, have no regrets, that boggles the imagination. That´s no bull.

The Manchurian candidate that nobody would believe was actually going to do his best to harm country and help the jihadis. . . . .
has done everything he can to harm the country and help the jihadis, including freeing the top 5 terrorist leaders in the Taliban.

Look at the "Arab Spring" thru that lens. He deposed Ghadaffi - who was keeping the jihadis in check. He deposed Mubarack - who was keeping the jihadis out of power in Egypt, and refused to oppose the Muslim Brotherhood leadership that briefly held power in Egypt. He helped the jihadis in Iraq by pulling out before the infection was fully stabilized. Hard facts show he has helped the Islamist terrorists every chance he gets.

Chickens coming home to roost.

I wonder when we will find out the truth about the fake birth certificate?

Now that Tyrant Obama the Liar doesn´t have any elections in the future there are no limits to his crimes. His actions may be unpopular with the citizens so the progressive fascist politicians that have future elections have to pretend to be against the Tyrant in order to win their next elections. The key thing to realize they are only pretending.

Just as soon as Israel accepted an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire Hamas fired 47 rockets killing one Israeli citizen. Anyone who has followed the conflict could have predicted this with certainty; the point of a ceasefire — for a terrorist organization — is to break it for exactly the same reason it purposely attacks women and children. Dr. Anna Geifman tried to explain that the reason why innocents are selected as terror targets is because “children are the last consecrated absolute”. That is just why they must be killed in the cruelest way possible. For “militant nihilism strives to ruin first and

Charlie Haden, who died on Friday at age 76, was one of the most revered and influential acoustic jazz bassists of his generation, largely because he was incapable of being dull. Rooted in folk and country music, Haden combined earthy simplicity with an engaging storytelling style that inspired and propelled the music of dozens of artists, from saxophonist Ornette Coleman and pianist Keith Jarrett to drummer Ginger Baker and singer Norah Jones. His conversational approach to improvisation forged a new model for post-1960 jazz bassists, resulting in four Grammys.

Bill Roggio has a very interesting article describing the ISIS plan to invest Baghdad. (Snip) As everyone now knows the campaign against US forces back in 2006 failed. The attackers were counter-encircled by US-led forces who established intelligence assets of their own to find and destroy the enemy. Much effort was put into tracking back weapons smuggling routes back to their sources, including explosively formed penetration IEDs whose cores were manufactured in Iran. US conventional units provided the “top cover” for the intel guys who went out to look for the enemy. Now ISIS is playing the same number on

Why Israel will soon be the only state able to govern Judea and Samaria, and the only military force capable of securing its borders. A one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is upon us. It won’t arrive by Naftali Bennett’s proposal to annex the West Bank’s Area C, or through the efforts of BDS campaigners and Jewish Voice for Peace to alter the Jewish state. But it will happen, sooner rather than later, as the states on Israel’s borders disintegrate and other regional players annex whatever they can. As that happens, Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria is becoming inevitable.

Eddie Wayne Davis was executed by injection at Florida State Prison at 6:43 p.m. Davis declined to say any final words before his sentence was carried out. Executioners put the IV needle into Davis’ left arm around 6:30 p.m. Davis began muttering to himself after the process began, but witnesses in the viewing area couldn’t hear what he was saying because the speakers had been turned off.

The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
