Obama now in all-out free fall
Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/26/2014 5:14:17 AM

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

...if we all take one giant step to the right, we should miss the splash from the splat...

And yet, somehow, Obama will be allowed to continue on his mission to destroy America, unrestrained by those elected to "balance" his power.

How evil must a man be to be stopped in Washington?

Curl falsely claimed that the Tea Party caused losses for the Republicans in the last election. He wants the Republicans to go along with the Republican establishment ideas. That would be amnesty, bigger spending, increased debt, Obama care II, etc. The very things that are now haunting Obama. Curl simply sees the coming election as an opportunity for the Republicans and not for the people.

The author underestimates the damage done by the Establishment Republicans. The McDaniel/Cochran election has done massive, massive damage to the Republicans for this November. It will not be forgiven by conservatives, and has sent shock waves through the base.

We have been abandoned by the party and are tired of being played for fools. The elite RINOS are just as out of touch with Americans as the Dems are.

That splat you see coming is not just Obama. It is our country, led by feckless leaders in all three branches. God help us.

Poster #5 is absolutely right.

But I do not concur with the premise of this article. The "free-fall" is wishful thinking on the part of right-wing pundits. As the Mississippi primary so amply demonstrated - - votes of the ignorant masses can always be bought - - and be bought very cheaply.

The earnest-but-vague promises of goodies - - an 0bamaphone! - - can always sway the stupid into voting for the evil.

I´d like to believe the free-fall - - and I´ll believe it when I see it - - but right now I´m not seeing it.

There is one possible out for us, although it is a slim chance. The hard left has a history of abandoning their front men/women when the failure to do so would endanger their agenda. At the point O becomes a burden to the advancement of the cause they may "move on". O´s continuing free fall and some key developments in the various scandals, coupled with heat on the Dems.and a bloodletting in Nov. could bring it about.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Obama, on the other hand, gets his clubs and heads for the nearest exclusive, private, never public, golf course, of course.

The COUNTRY is in a free for all. Obama, the Democrats and the RINO´s are riding it right into the ground while the media cheers them on. The only sanity is coming from Conservatives. The treachery of the Republicans who supported Cochran was the last straw for me. As much as I loathe Obama, it pales in comparison as to what I feel for the Republicans who had a hand in those vile fliers and robocalls. There is no excuse for that, ever. So if Obama does crash and burn, I am not encouraged that those old Republican bulls are not just as bad in their own way. We are headed for disaster either way and it did not have to be so. Principled men with honor and integrity could begin to rebuild what Obama has destroyed. Sadly, there are very few in Washington and those who are sit squarely in the crosshairs of the establishment and will be marginalized.

# 6 has it right, this will be a very interesting November. The "establishment" shot themselves in the foot with the McDaniel/Cochran debacle. Will conservatives across the country vote for "establishment" hacks? I will either sit out November or if I stay mad I may even vote for Michelle Nunn.

We´re aware of the history, #15, which is not quite as you state. Nonetheless, I don´t know why those who are determined to help the Democrats in November and, apparently, from now on don´t just go ahead and be honest about it. Vote Democrat. Stop pretending to care about any other movement or party.

The time to iron out our differences with the establishment is not at election time, but rather once we again have control of both houses. To do so in the voting booth is self-indulgent and certainly the death knell for the country that we know and love.

Okay, take a deep breath: Truth is, the Republicans are as much at fault here as any group. The nation is splintered by deliberate action that politicians have taken. The only time I can find in history with this much division is the pre-Civil War era. Republicans are not the answer and there is no other group in the wings that is the answer. It is not the media, it is not the politicians. The real fault lies with the people. If they fail to rise to the challenge to get their nation and freedom back, then truly, all is lost.

Mississippi had a crooked election, using crooked tactics, and reelecting a crooked man. They used race baiting, slander and liable against the opponent and against the TEA party. The robo-calls told the chronically ´´underserved´´ that their food stamps and benefits would be taken away if the TEA party had their way.

#5 - Sure he cares, and so do his puppetmasters and media enablers. It is a necessity for their horrible agenda. Without the pretense of popularity propped up by cherry picking speech and interview venues, as well as the phony "likeability" polls, his ability to continue to destroy the fabric of America would be diminished.

#20 The Republicans are as responsible as any party ?
I live in Mississippi and I am distroaught over what happened here. However, I will readily vote for the Republican come November.

To say there is no difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is like saying there is no difference between daylight and dawn. I can´t name you one Democratic senator worth their salt. Not one person on Obie´s cabinet, who doesn´t want to destroy America.

To get mad and not vote, when we have a good chance to take the senate is nothing short of cutting off your nose to spite your face. One more fool liberal Supreme Court judge will end it for us all. We can´t give up and call each other names.

What #15, #19, and especially what #23 said. There seem to be a lot of "talking points" here lately, and most of it bashing ANY Republican who doesn´t toe some line drawn up by purists. THERE I said it...purists...! In the old days we voted OUR preference and did not call other GOP voters names. I have been a Conservative for more years than some of you have lived, and I deeply resent the accusations being made that if we don´t vote the same like drones, WE are the problem. In order to SAVE this country, we MUST vote for a party that will NOT destroy it! So, stay home, vote democrat, but then stop complaining about the situation we find ourselves in. IMO, the nasty infighting IS childish and unbelievably unproductive and plays right into the hands of the democrats! Good Grief!

#25, you have said what I have been holding back for a long time. In fact, I´ve been on the verge of giving up on this website because of the predictable vitriol, not against Obama and his wrecking crew, but against fellow Republicans who aren´t pure enough. Why didn´t Goldwater win in a landslide? (I am old enough to remember that fiasco). Why don´t all the Tea Party candidates sweep to victory? The center-right country won´t vote for the whacky ones. Who said it.....vote for the best candidate WHO CAN WIN. Staying home on Election Day, starting a third party , running an Independent candidate...those are brilliant strategies to hand over the Country for ruin. Romney was the candidate because he won the primaries....people voted for him! Hope everyone who stayed home for the general election is happy with the train wreck they facilitated.

We have a president whose foreign policy is likely bringing us all closer to WW III. Still think you can afford to sit out elections? Consider it a matter of self-preservation. Would a president Romney have been the same as a president Obama? Doubtful.

While Obama being in free-fall in the polls is a good thing, take a hard look at the average American voter and their motivations. The Democrats can still win.

I talked to a Republican who voted against the Conservative in the Republican primary yesterday. Why? The conservative supported fracking, and they believed fracking caused earthquakes. This was an intelligent educated person.

Those who vow to stay home or vote Democrat say anyone who disagrees is lecturing. So, I will try not to lecture, but will simply state my own view. The country is in grave peril. We are running out of time to save it. We cannot do that by casting votes for the Democrats or by staying home or by writing in a name. We can unite in a mission to save ourselves or we can fracture into groups with varying goals. I´ve voted for a lot of people who were not my choice. But the idea of voting for a Democrat in protest has never occurred to me and I cannot imagine doing it.

Just my opinion.

I can understand the call for all registered Republicans to vote for the party nominee in NOvember to gain control of the senate. In theory this is the smart thing to do. But if past is prologue, what evidence do we have the party leadership will indeed uphold the kingpin conservative values of constitutionally limited government, fiscal restraint, or even respect for the electorate? What evidence do we have that the party leadership will actually use their constitutional powers to limit Obama, to vote against his nominees for the Supreme Court or high administration appointments?

The egregious teaming up with the supposed opposition party (Dims) in Mississippi to defame McDaniel personally and TEA Party supporters generally as racists joins the long list of deliberate actions by the GOP leadership to marginalize those they claim to represent. Those who insist on party loyalty would rather call TEA supporters and sympathizers childish names than address the concerns that we bring forward. The party loyalty they so adamantly call for is a decidedly one-way street.

The GOP presents itself as the party of limited government and fiscal responsibility, a party that is supposed to be opposed to the progressive socialist agenda. For decades the GOP decried the fact that they didn’t have an activist base like the Dimocrats. The TEA movement, which embodied citizens who craved a rational government, was a gift to them on a silver platter. They instead reacted like scalded cats and brought out their long knives, forever sheathed against the Dimocrats, against their own voters. We are asked to be loyal to the GOP, but we ask to what are we being called to be loyal?

It appears that the GOP is trying to build a base like the dims have. They vote dims reguardless of who the candidate is. It seems the GOP is trying to do the same thing. As such, they don´t want anyone (like the Tea Party) upsetting the apple cart. And like others here, I was bitterly angry and upset at what happened in Mississippi the other day. And my intial reaction was just not vote in the general election (I vote in Florida). But then that would violate something I have always held to be a solid value I hold. And that is simply that those who do not vote forfeit their right to complain about what happens. They have had their chance to change things but stayed at home instead. So, spare me all of your bickering. This is NOT a perfect system, just the best manking has ever had.

The problem is that everyone running from the progressives turned to the GOP and are now trying to force their faction policies on everyone else.
Blend or lose because third party efforts cannot not meet in a middle road fashion of give and take.
The truth is both factions in the MS run off tried to smear the other candidate. That election is a state issue not a national one. It is a MS problem so get over it and vote your own state candidates and quit sounding progressive like hatreds.
you know your various third party attempts elect Liberals not conservatives and nothing is solved.
If the Tea Party wants to win then vet your candidates to make sure they are not going to defeat their own selves via crackpot gaffs.
That is what the hated RINO group is now trying to do.

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article

The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

WASHINGTON • In one of his first interviews since his defeat in 2012, former Rep.

In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen.

Mark Pryor, knocks on a voter´s door in Little Rock and discovers the potential GOP supporter owns a gun. In the world of voter outreach, it´s a potentially crucial piece of information; with the right pitch from a group like the National Rifle Association, for instance, it could prove decisive in getting that voter to pull the lever for Cotton.

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

Republicans fired back today at Democrats’ plans to counter the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that allows a contraception exclusion for closely-held companies with religious beliefs, saying they will propose a measure of their own. It was a dose of election year reality, dashing Democratic efforts at drawing bipartisan support for their plan. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said the dialogue has been driven away from the religious freedom rationale of the ruling and distorted for political leverage. “I really am disappointed that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle would try to score election-year points by misrepresenting what the Hobby Lobby

Israel Targets Homes

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Conventional wisdom is clear that the next Congress has a considerable likelihood of being a Republican Congress. That same consensus also holds that if the GOP does indeed take control, the next two years will be marked by confrontation with the White House and even less actual legislative action than the present Congress has accomplished. To be fair, there is some compelling logic behind these conclusions. President Obama has clearly opted out of the role of governing through legislation.

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. 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. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

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.

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

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.

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
