America’s Corrupt Political Class and their War on Freedom

rapjust

 

The only way to end this is to go to a one vote policy. Each person gets one vote.

This will entail taking the money out of politics. Money is not speech. Money is bribery.

Every politician who takes campaign donations from any source other than individuals should be impeached for their unethical practices. That which is legal is not always ethical just as that which is illegal is not always unethical. Many of our laws in America amount to no more than legalization of corruption. Many of our laws amount to little more than legislatively outlawing beneficial substances such as Hemp based on corrupt influences.

Take, for instance, GMO corn vs hemp. Hemp could save human beings millions. Hemp would be good for the environment or not as harmful as chopping down trees. However, we have corporations in America which would lose money and whole industries that would go out of business if we switched to hemp. Hemp would benefit millions of Americans.

Conversely, GMO corn benefits a few billionaires such as the Monsanto gang of thugs. GMO corn causes huge problems for small farms and farmers in that, if one GMO genetically altered seeds fall into a small farmers crop, that farmer is legally liable to pay fees to Monsanto.

That should be the other way around. If GMO corn seed or seed of any type infects the crops of a farmer close to the Monsanto fields, Monsanto should be liable to the farmer for spreading their disease ridden pestilence.

GMOs profit the few at the expense of the many. Why? Because of bribes which are legally termed “campaign donations.”

The FCC supposedly owns the airwaves. Each candidate running for office should be alloted two weekly 15 minute time slots. That is all. Each politician should be allowed a website and allowed to create a facebook and twitter account. Each politician should be made to conduct town hall meetings to explain their platform.

No politician should be allowed to take monies from Corporations.

No SuperPacs should be allowed. These SuperPacs should be legislatively banned.

If a commercial is aired in support of a candidate, the sponsoring entity should be made plain. At the bottom of the screen, there should be, in bold, the Corporate Logos and Names of each sponsor.

This would make plain why a candidate is being sponsored.

No corporation should be able to directly or indirectly donate campaign funds to a political candidate.

It is time to take the corruption out of politics. It is time that we have a 3rd and 4th party in America. It is time for real transparency. Not the faux Obama Hope and Change transparency. It is time to hold politicians accountable. If that means jailing a President after an impeachment and trial, fine. Good.

I don’t care to what party a candidate pretends to be loyal. At this time, they are all loyal to the Party of Greed. Yes, even Obama.

Less than half of America believes that the political parties are good for this nation. Less than half of America are loyal to the DNC and GOP.

How are these two parties representative of America if they cannot, will not and will never represent more than half of the populace.

This is not Democracy. This is not representation. The only “people” being represented in today’s America are the Banks and Corporations.

Yet, individuals amounting to roughly 40% of America believe that the political parties are who is needed to run this country.

From what I can see, these partisans and their corrupt parties are running America into the ground.

The real traitors in America are not Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. The real traitors are members of and voters for the GOP and DNC.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

“So it should be no surprise that “follow the money” beginning at the local level should extend to the formulation of US foreign policy, where money also talks. Adelson wants a war? He just might get it if he backs the right GOP horse. And don’t think for a second that a President Hillary will be any different. She also has monied interests behind her who wouldn’t mind seeing Iran get its comeuppance. Where is the peace candidate? Looking for money”.

Ideological Tolerance and Acceptance

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have a few hard line stances to which I am pretty much a hard stay.

Most people are cool with the difference of opinion.

Two groups who, ironically, preach tolerance/love/acceptance have been the ones most often and most likely to hold these opinions against me.

1. Fundamentalist Christians
2. Hard Left Liberals

I have a few people who hold a hardcore dislike for me or who love to “preach” their message but do everything that they can to NOT hear any other message.

All of these people fall into the category of Fundamentalist Christian or Hard Left Liberal.

For instance, I do not think that Palestine will ever be “democratic.”  Yet, there are a group of liberals whom I have known who attend rallies, meetings and such with the goal of a “free and democratic” Palestine.  When I tell them that this is impossible, they automatically think that I am for the status quo in Palestine and that I am pro everything Israel.  However, that could not be further from the truth.

I believe that Israel is the author of many of the woes of Palestine.  I believe that Israel has become an offensive fraud who preaches democracy, yet, oppresses a whole class of people based upon fear and greed.

I, also, believe that the Arab Nations share guilt in this endless conflict.  All of the Arabs.  Iraq, Saudi Arabia (most guilty and most hypocritical), Syria, Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Jordan and Palestine.  These people are as great a problem and sticking point as the Israelis.

That said, no Palestinian State that emerges at this time will be democratic.  It will be another Islamic Despotism based on the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Liberal fallacies and fantasies about freedom and democracy in the region are naught but dreamy intentions paving the way to hell for Arab Christians and Muslims in Palestine.

I also have my Fundie Christian detractors.  Those purveyors of hellfire and brimstone who “innocently” imply that I am on the path to hell and can’t quite understand how such a belief would offend anyone.   These people have told me countless times that morality can not exist without Christianity.  For them, there is no morality without Christ.

I, on the other hand, look at the history of Christianity and think that if that is morality, I’d rather be immoral.

When I refute their claims, they claim that I am blaspheming their religion.  They tell me that I am disrespecting their beliefs.  They tell me that I should be more tolerant.

That bewilders me.  The thought that I should be “tolerant” of a belief that condemns me to hell.  The idea that I should be more respectful of a religion that believes that I will burn for eternity because I do not pay lip service or believe in their system of intellectual and emotional servitude to a capricious deity who on the one hand orders genocide and on the other preaches faith, hope and love BUT only if you believe in him, his son and their plan for salvation.

If I deign not to believe, I shall burn in hell for eternity.

And I’m the disrespectful, intolerant one?

Inconceivable.

Yet, that I have the audacity to make it clear that I think Palestinian Democracy or Salvation at the hands of a vengeful, judgmental God or whatever pet project a Fundamentalist Christian or Hard Left Liberal might have is based on fallacy, I am the intolerant one.

These folks are absolutist.  There is no room for difference with these folks.  I will admit that I might be wrong.  I fully and freely admit that I do not know all.

But there is no room for doubt with these folks.  Therefore, I become the enemy.  The hated one.

They preach.  They give their story.  They’ll demand that you listen, that you give them your time.  When you attempt to give your side, they will not listen.  Their minds close as tightly as their eyes, ears and hearts.

And then I become the evil one.

Tolerance?  Acceptance?

For most of these people, these are mere tools with which they bash the opponent.  You are required to tolerate and accept their ideas.  They require that you dismiss yours.

Voting Obama ~ What does it mean?

https://i2.wp.com/neoformix.com/2008/wp_Obama2.png

I was recently asked if I wanted Obama to fail.

Though not a Republican, there are parts of the OBAMA Agenda that I most definitely want to see fail.  I don’t like his domestic agenda all that much and I don’t particularly care for his desire to cede parts of US sovereignty over to the that den of thieves in the United Nations.  So, yes, I want the Obama Agenda to fail, but, in no way do I wish for him to fail America. America can pass him like a bad gall stone. I fervently wish for this to happen in a most expeditious manner. Much like Carter before him, Obama needs to be a one term President.

He is a danger to America.   This has nothing to do with his religion or his birth certificate.  I think he’s scum.  I liked Bill Clinton. I didn’t particularly care for all of the Clinton policies, but, Clinton seemed to me to be pro-America. He was a bit loose with our Country. Even so, I think he had her best interests in mind.  I don’t feel that way about Obama. I feel Obama wants us to be liked more than anything else. Not respected. Not feared. Liked. That’s an assinine way to run foreign policy.  Obama is weak and vacillating. He’s a pox upon the American house. We need a good vaccination.

Obama needs to be flushed. Period.   Anyone stupid enough to vote for him in ’08. I give a pass. He talked a good game. By now, it is apparent that talk is all Obama will ever be.   Vote for him in ’12 and, in my opinion, you are not a real American. You’re a Euro Trash wannabe.  Move to Europe and leave America for Americans. The illegal immigrants belong here more than those who vote twice for Obama.

The DNC and Leftist Omni-Rebuttal for Obama

Be careful out there.

If you aren’t an Obama Drone and you dare criticize an Obama move, you are an instant bigot.

They’ll pull the race card on you faster than Biden can make a gaff.

* Caveat — If you are a forwarder of racist or bigoted trash on the internet or if you are an actual bigot/racist, you deserve to be called out.  You make the rest of us look bad.

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all.
We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”

“The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.”

“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

“It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.”

Case closed: The Rosenbergs were Soviet spies

By Ronald Radosh
September 17, 2008
» Discuss Article (133 Comments)

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed 55 years ago, on June 19, 1953. But last week, they were back in the headlines when Morton Sobell, the co-defendant in their famous espionage trial, finally admitted that he and his friend, Julius, had both been Soviet agents.

It was a stunning admission; Sobell, now 91 years old, had adamantly maintained his innocence for more than half a century. After his comments were published, even the Rosenbergs’ children, Robert and Michael Meeropol, were left with little hope to hang on to — and this week, in comments unlike any they’ve made previously, the brothers acknowledged having reached the difficult conclusion that their father was, indeed, a spy. “I don’t have any reason to doubt Morty,” Michael Meeropol told Sam Roberts of the New York Times.

With these latest events, the end has arrived for the legions of the American left wing that have argued relentlessly for more than half a century that the Rosenbergs were victims, framed by a hostile, fear-mongering U.S. government. Since the couple’s trial, the left has portrayed them as martyrs for civil liberties, righteous dissenters whose chief crime was to express their constitutionally protected political beliefs. In the end, the left has argued, the two communists were put to death not for spying but for their unpopular opinions, at a time when the Truman and Eisenhower administrations were seeking to stem opposition to their anti-Soviet foreign policy during the Cold War.

To this day, this received wisdom permeates our educational system. A recent study by historian Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton has found that very few college history textbooks say simply that the Rosenbergs were guilty; according to Schweikart, most either state that the couple were innocent or that the trial was “controversial,” or they “excuse what [the Rosenbergs] did by saying, ‘It wasn’t that bad. What they provided wasn’t important.’ ”

Indeed, Columbia University professor Eric Foner once wrote that the Rosenbergs were prosecuted out of a “determined effort to root out dissent,” part of a broader pattern of “shattered careers and suppressed civil liberties.” In other words, it was part of the postwar McCarthyite “witch hunt.”

But, in fact, Schweikart is right, and Foner is wrong. The Rosenbergs were Soviet spies, and not minor ones either. Not only did they try their best to give the Soviets top atomic secrets from the Manhattan Project, they succeeded in handing over top military data on sonar and on radar that was used by the Russians to shoot down American planes in the Korean and Vietnam wars. That’s long been known, and Sobell confirmed it again last week.

To many Americans, Cold War espionage cases like the Rosenberg and Alger Hiss cases that once riveted the country seem irrelevant today, something out of the distant past. But they’re not irrelevant. They’re a crucial part of the ongoing dispute between right and left in this country. For the left, it has long been an article of faith that these prosecutions showed the essentially repressive nature of the U.S. government. Even as the guilt of the accused has become more and more clear (especially since the fall of the Soviet Union and the release of reams of historical Cold War documents), these “anti anti-communists” of the intellectual left have continued to argue that the prosecutions were overzealous, or that the crimes were minor, or that the punishments were disproportionate.

The left has consistently defended spies such as Hiss, the Rosenbergs and Sobell as victims of contrived frame-ups. Because a demagogue like Sen. Joseph McCarthy cast a wide swath with indiscriminate attacks on genuine liberals as “reds” (and even though McCarthy made some charges that were accurate), the anti anti-communists came to argue that anyone accused by McCarthy or Richard Nixon or J. Edgar Hoover should be assumed to be entirely innocent. People like Hiss (a former State Department official who was accused of spying) cleverly hid their true espionage work by gaining sympathy as just another victim of a smear attack.

But now, with Sobell’s confession of guilt, that worldview has been demolished.

In the 1990s, when it was more than clear that the Rosenbergs had been real Soviet spies — not simply a pair of idealistic left-wingers working innocently for peace with the Russians — one of the Rosenberg’s sons, Michael, expressed the view that the reason his parents stayed firm and did not cooperate with the government was because they wanted to keep the government from creating “a massive spy show trial,” thereby earning “the thanks of generations of resisters to government repression.”

Today, he and his brother Robert run a fund giving grants to the children of those they deem “political prisoners,” such as convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Ironically, if there was any government that staged show trials for political ends, it was the government for which the Rosenbergs gave up their lives, that of the former Soviet Union.

This week, the Meeropols made it clear to the New York Times that they still believe the information their father passed to the Russians was not terribly significant, that the judge and the prosecutors in their parents’ case were guilty of misconduct, and that neither Julius nor Ethel should have been given the death penalty for their crimes.

On the subject of their mother, the Meeropols have a point. In another development last week, a federal court judge in New York released previously sealed grand jury testimony of key witnesses in the case, including that of Ruth Greenglass, Julius’ sister-in-law. It turns out that a key part of her testimony for the prosecution — that Ethel had typed up notes for her husband to hand to the Soviets — was most likely concocted.

That doesn’t mean that Ethel was innocent — indeed, the preponderance of the evidence suggests she was not. But what is clear is that in seeking to get the defendants to confess to Soviet espionage, the prosecutors overstepped bounds and enhanced testimony to guarantee a conviction. Americans should have no problem acknowledging when such judicial transgressions take place, and in concluding that the execution of Ethel was a miscarriage of justice.

Nevertheless, after Sobell’s confession of guilt, all other conspiracy theories about the Rosenberg case should come to an end. A pillar of the left-wing culture of grievance has been finally shattered. The Rosenbergs were actual and dangerous Soviet spies. It is time the ranks of the left acknowledge that the United States had (and has) real enemies and that finding and prosecuting them is not evidence of repression.

Ronald Radosh, an emeritus professor of history at City University of New York and an adjunct senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, is the coauthor of “The Rosenberg File.”

This is the problem that I have with so much of the Left.  It’s counter-culture Elite seems to have been nothing but tools of the Soviet Union.  Now those same “Elite” are the power of the DNC.  Those elite are the powerbrokers who have elevated the Marxist Barack Hussein Obama.

Governor Sarah Palin for Vice President: A Feminist View of her Candidacy

A Feminist’s Argument for McCain’s VP

By Tammy Bruce

In the shadow of the blatant and truly stunning sexism launched against the Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign, and as a pro-choice feminist, I wasn’t the only one thrilled to hear Republican John McCain announce Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. For the GOP, she bridges for conservatives and independents what I term “the enthusiasm gap” for the ticket. For Democrats, she offers something even more compelling – a chance to vote for a someone who is her own woman, and who represents a party that, while we don’t agree on all the issues, at least respects women enough to take them seriously.

Whether we have a D, R or an “i for independent” after our names, women share a different life experience from men, and we bring that difference to the choices we make and the decisions we come to. Having a woman in the White House, and not as The Spouse, is a change whose time has come, despite the fact that some Democratic Party leaders have decided otherwise. But with the Palin nomination, maybe they’ll realize it’s not up to them any longer.

Clinton voters, in particular, have received a political wake-up call they never expected. Having watched their candidate and their principles betrayed by the very people who are supposed to be the flame-holders for equal rights and fairness, they now look across the aisle and see a woman who represents everything the feminist movement claimed it stood for. Women can have a family and a career. We can be whatever we choose, on our own terms. For some, that might mean shooting a moose. For others, perhaps it’s about shooting a movie or shooting for a career as a teacher. However diverse our passions, we will vote for a system that allows us to make the choices that best suit us. It’s that simple.

The rank bullying of the Clinton candidacy during the primary season has the distinction of simply being the first revelation of how misogynistic the party has become. The media led the assault, then the Obama campaign continued it. Trailblazer Geraldine Ferraro, who was the first Democratic vice presidential candidate, was so taken aback by the attacks that she publicly decried nominee Barack Obama as “terribly sexist” and openly criticized party chairman Howard Dean for his remarkable silence on the obvious sexism.

Concerned feminists noted, among other thinly veiled sexist remarks during the campaign, Obama quipping, “I understand that Sen. Clinton, periodically when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal,” and Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen in a television interview comparing Clinton to a spurned lover-turned-stalker in the film, “Fatal Attraction,” noting, “Glenn Close should have stayed in that tub, and Sen. Clinton has had a remarkable career…”. These attitudes, and more, define the tenor of the party leadership, and sent a message to the grassroots and media that it was “Bros Before Hoes,” to quote a popular Obama-supporter T-shirt.

The campaign’s chauvinistic attitude was reflected in the even more condescending Democratic National Convention. There, the Obama camp made it clear it thought a Super Special Women’s Night would be enough to quell the fervent support of the woman who had virtually tied him with votes and was on his heels with pledged delegates.

There was a lot of pandering and lip service to women’s rights, and evenings filled with anecdotes of how so many have been kept from achieving their dreams, or failed to be promoted, simply because they were women. Clinton’s “18 million cracks in the glass ceiling” were mentioned a heck of a lot. More people began to wonder, though, how many cracks does it take to break the thing?

Ironically, all this at an event that was negotiated and twisted at every turn in an astounding effort not to promote a woman.

Virtually moments after the GOP announcement of Palin for vice president, pundits on both sides of the aisle began to wonder if Clinton supporters – pro-choice women and gays to be specific – would be attracted to the McCain-Palin ticket. The answer is, of course. There is a point where all of our issues, including abortion rights, are made safer not only if the people we vote for agree with us – but when those people and our society embrace a respect for women and promote policies that increase our personal wealth, power and political influence.

Make no mistake – the Democratic Party and its nominee have created the powerhouse that is Sarah Palin, and the party’s increased attacks on her (and even on her daughter) reflect that panic.

The party has moved from taking the female vote for granted to outright contempt for women. That’s why Palin represents the most serious conservative threat ever to the modern liberal claim on issues of cultural and social superiority. Why? Because men and women who never before would have considered voting for a Republican have either decided, or are seriously considering, doing so.

They are deciding women’s rights must be more than a slogan and actually belong to every woman, not just the sort approved of by left-wing special interest groups.

Palin’s candidacy brings both figurative and literal feminist change. The simple act of thinking outside the liberal box, which has insisted for generations that only liberals and Democrats can be trusted on issues of import to women, is the political equivalent of a nuclear explosion.

The idea of feminists willing to look to the right changes not only electoral politics, but will put more women in power at lightning speed as we move from being taken for granted to being pursued, nominated and appointed and ultimately, sworn in.

It should be no surprise that the Democratic response to the McCain-Palin ticket was to immediately attack by playing the liberal trump card that keeps Democrats in line – the abortion card – where the party daily tells restless feminists the other side is going to police their wombs.

The power of that accusation is interesting, coming from the Democrats – a group that just told the world that if you have ovaries, then you don’t count.

Yes, both McCain and Palin identify as anti-abortion, but neither has led a political life with that belief, or their other religious principles, as their signature issue. Politicians act on their passions – the passion of McCain and Palin is reform. In her time in office, Palin’s focus has not been to kick the gays and make abortion illegal; it has been to kick the corrupt and make wasteful spending illegal. The Republicans are now making direct appeals to Clinton supporters, knowingly crafting a political base that would include pro-choice voters.

On the day McCain announced her selection as his running mate, Palin thanked Clinton and Ferraro for blazing her trail. A day later, Ferraro noted her shock at Palin’s comment. You see, none of her peers, no one, had ever publicly thanked her in the 24 years since her historic run for the White House. Ferraro has since refused to divulge for whom she’s voting. Many more now are realizing that it does indeed take a woman – who happens to be a Republican named Sarah Palin.

She is a former president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women. A registered Democrat her entire adult life until February, she now is registered as a decline-to-state voter.

This article first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Another interesting Palin article from the Brits

This is an election that will be decided by identity politics more so than any other Presidential race since the election of Kennedy.  Obama will more than likely get upwards of 95% of the Black vote.  Much of it simply because of his race.  But how will Palin play into this?  How many cross party votes will she bring based upon her gender.  How many women will vote for her based on gender.  How many men?  Will this affect Black women enough for them to vote with their gender?  Will Black women seek to elevate a woman as opposed to a Black male.

If the McCain/Pallin ticket wins, she is the likely candidate for 2012 as McCain has stated that he will run for office one time.  At his age, I don’t think he was using the line as a soundbite.

Barack Obama says “I’M BLACK YO!!!

https://i0.wp.com/www.telegraph.co.uk/telegraph/multimedia/archive/00674/obamapoll404_674786c.jpg
He’s black and that is historic.  And, well, that seems to be the only qualification that he needs to be President.  If you are a Liberal.

I’m reminded of Chris Rock anytime an Obama disciple starts to froth at the mouth about the Obaminator.  Inevitably they say something that amounts to “he speaks so well.”  I can’t help but laugh.

If one of them can name some significant piece of legislation that he sponsored and ushered to passage.  Name something that he improved in Chicago as a community organizer.

He’s said to be “bi-partisan.”  Name one time that he crossed the aisle and voted against his party.  He is THE most liberal Senator.  The #1 liberal in the Senate.  What about that speaks to a bi-partisan attitude.

He’s supposed to be eloquent.  I’ve never seen his eloquence away from a teleprompter.

But hey, he’s Black.  And that seems to be all that matters.

I agree that it is past time for the Causasian male monopoly on the White House to come to a graceful conclusion.  But can’t we get someone who is qualified.  Barack Obama and his empty slogans can not be the best option out there.  There are other folks out there who are just as qualified, if not more, as George Bush, Al Gore, John Kerry and John McCain.  I know that there are capable Black men and women.  Capable Latin men and women.  Capable White women.  Capable Asian men and women.  Capable Arab men and women.  They are out there.

Barack Obama just isn’t one of them.  But hey!  He’s Black.  And that’s historic.  And that seems to be enough for the Democratic Party.  Too bad he’s Jimmy Carter Redux.  I’m sure he’ll be just as successful if he wins.

If we are who we were waiting for then we are all in trouble.

P.S.  All of you Ultra Liberals out there.  I know what you’re going to say now.  You’ll call me a racist.  Blah blah blah  Why will you do this?  Because you have no other argument.  In a Presidential race that the Democrats should win running away, you picked an empty suit as a candidate and he may not win.  That must make you guys feel stupid.  Next time, don’t pick a Marxist wannabe.  America doesn’t want to be a Socialist paradise.  And if that is your desire.  Swim to Cuba.

Another empty Obaminator slogan.

I know.  I know.  If you don’t support the Obaminator, you must be a racist.  That can be the only reason.  It can not be that he is a far left liberal who will take America back to being a Carter Era joke on the International scene. That’s change that I can do without.

https://i1.wp.com/media.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/photo/2008/01/30/PH2008013002503.jpg

That’s Obama in December.  Waving goodbye to National relevance.  Joining Mondale, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry in the list of also rans.  That will be a historic moment as well.

Believe.  I do.

Senator Obama off kilter without teleprompter.

Election ’08: Last weekend’s McCain-Obama protodebate made it clear why Obama won’t keep his promise to debate McCain “anywhere, anytime.” McCain, with a robust resume and details at his fingertips, won big.


Read More: Election 2008 | Religion


It was only in May that Sen. Barack Obama cockily proclaimed he would debate Sen. John McCain “anywhere, anytime.” But in June, Obama said no to McCain’s challenge to have 10 one-on-one town hall meetings.

After what happened at Lake Forest, Calif.’s evangelical Saddleback megachurch Saturday evening, we may have found that debating is Obama’s Achilles’ heel. Whether or not you like the idea of such events being held in religious venues, the plain-and-simple method of questioning used by Saddleback pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren revealed fundamental differences between these two men.

“It’s one of those situations where the devil is in the details,” Obama said at one point. He could have been referring to his own oratorical shortcomings when a teleprompter is unavailable. We learned a lot more about the real Obama at Saddleback than we will next week as he delivers his acceptance speech in Denver before a massive stadium crowd.

The stark differences between the two came through the most on the question of whether there is evil in the world. Obama spoke of evil within America, “in parents who have viciously abused their children.” According to the Democrat, we can’t really erase evil in the world because “that is God’s task.” And we have to “have some humility in how we approach the issue of confronting evil.”

For McCain, with a global war on terror raging, there was no equivocating: We must “defeat” evil. If al-Qaida’s placing of suicide vests on mentally-disabled women and then blowing them up by remote control in a Baghdad market isn’t evil, he asked: “You have to tell me what is.”

Asked to name figures he would rely on for advice, Obama gave the stock answer of family members. McCain pointed to Gen. David Petraeus, Iraq’s scourge of the surge; Democratic Rep. John Lewis, who “had his skull fractured” by white racists while protesting for civil rights in the 60s; plus Internet entrepreneur Meg Whitman, the innovative former CEO of eBay.

When Warren inquired into changes of mind on big issues, Obama fretted about welfare reform; McCain unashamedly said “drilling” — for reasons of national security and economic need.

On taxes, Obama waxed political: “What I’m trying to do is create a sense of balance and fairness in our tax code.” McCain showed an understanding of what drives a free economy: “I don’t want to take any money from the rich. I want everybody to get rich. I don’t believe in class warfare or redistribution of the wealth.”

To any honest observer, the differences between John McCain and Barack Obama have been evident all along. What we saw last weekend was Obama’s shallowness juxtaposed with McCain’s depth, the product of his extraordinary life experience.

It may not have been a debate, but it was one of the most lopsided political contests in memory. No wonder Obama wants to keep debate formats boring and predictable.

Barack Obama, Moveon.org and the fall of Western Civilization

When nothing is worth fighting for…

Moveon.org and all it’s sibling movements out there are the surest sign of the apocalypse.

Not her child she says.  Not Alex.  Not a child of the Liberals who refuse to defend themselves against anyone.  The Soviets.  Terrorists.  It matters not.  I’m certain that the woman in this video will be more than willing to see other sons and daughters go off to war.  Just not her child.  That’s the problem with the Left and the Pacifists and all of those like them.  They must flee or they die.  The only societies in which it is possible to hold those ideals sacred are societies that have men and women standing at the ready to defend them.  A pacifist won’t defend himself or herself.  Thus it will always fall to others to defend these folks.  Pacifism and anti-War ideals are noble indeed.  It takes an army of fighting men and women to defend those ideals though.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill

We make war that we may live in peace.

Aristotle

Newt Gingrich on the Islamic Threat

He is totally correct here. The American people and especially those on the left will not wake up to the threat of Islam until we lose a city.

New York.

Chicago.

Washington D.C.

Los Angeles.

Houston.

The Islamic radicals will finally find success in their evil endeavors. It is almost inevitable.

Why?

America refuses to take the threat seriously. I give it ten years. It matters not if we are successful or a failure in Afghanistan, Iraq or both. My opinion. One city in America gets nuked. Mekkah should be the first retaliatory target. If that doesn’t get them the message.

Teheran.

Damascus.

Any belief system that employs children as suicide bombers is unworthy of existence. Period. The Saudis expect the United States of America to sit and take lectures on tolerance when you can’t find one Church, one Temple or one Synagogue on Saudi soil?

And we sit silently and take it because of OIL.

I don’t want to hear it from Democrats. It was a Democratic President who signed the deal with the devils in the first place. His name was FDR. And every President since, no matter party affiliation, has continued to suck at the teat and bend at the knee to the House of Saud. All of you Brits can keep silent as well. Mossadegh was taken out by the CIA at the request of none other than Winston Churchill. France. Everyone knows the cowardly history of French Colonialism. Russia is no better than anyone else. China and India will soon learn.

FDR, Truman, Ike, Camelot and his family of Mafioso wannabes, LBJ, Tricky Dicky, Jimmah the Peacemaker, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton and our current Bushie.

By my count that is 6 Democrat Presidents and 5 Republicans. For most of that period, we had a Democratic Congress.

NOT ONE DEMOCRAT should say a word about oil wars or kissing the Royal and Gilded Saudi buttocks.

Hillary wins Kentucky

[Clinton]

Clinton won the Kentucky primary. But it’s a victory of scant political value in a Democratic presidential race moving inexorably in Obama’s direction. The Illinois senator is favored to win in Oregon, where 52 delegates are at stake.

I knew my State would repudiate that mad charlatan. Good Job, Kentucky!

NOW.  Do the right thing and vote for John McCain in the general election.

Barack Obama spokesman — Racists are Republican/Republicans are Racist

Today, in an interview with Linda Douglass of the National Journal, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe tried to play down any impact Obama’s race has on his electability, saying, “the vast, vast majority of voters who would not vote for Barack Obama in November based on race are probably firmly in John McCain’s camp already.”

Basically, the DNC is going to paint any independent who does not vote for their candidate as a racist and/or ignorant. It doesn’t matter that many think of Obama as Stalin lite. It’s race that matters. Not political leanings or a person’s ability to choose based on real issues that are important to them.

According to the Obama Campaign and the DNC, if you vote McCain you must be “just another Republican racist.” Self-determination be damned in this age of Political Correctness.

When do we get assigned our thought police and our Regional DNC appointed Political Commissar.

“Che” Obama — Let the Bloody Revolution begin…

Barack Hussein Obama, Black Liberation Theology (Theologically Enshrined Racism) and Marxism

Basically, a large group of American people desire to elect a Marxist who is more than likely a closet racist to the Presidency .

The DNC may as well nominate an Ahmadinejad/Hugo Chavez ticket. While they’re at it, they can disband Congress and emplace Hamas in the House and Hezbollah in the Senate. Cement the destruction of the Constitution by placing the former Soviet Politburo in the Supreme Court. Special bonus: Kim Jung Il as Speaker of the House. Khamanei can be Attorney General in this ideal State of Affairs.

I wonder where Michelle and the Mullahs will build the first Gulag. Alaska, perhaps? Or will they just cede it back to Russia as a special Red Gift. I wonder if Obama will be as bloodthirsty as the men he admires. Che and Fidel the murdering twins of South America. Perhaps, Che Obama will be the American Stalin or our Mad Murdering Mao. Jeremiah Wright will re-emerge as Political Thought Commissar.

The DNC has finally gone off the deep end. Obama will make Jimmy Carter look like a mastermind.

Barack Obama — Why they like him.

Why do people like Barack Obama? More specifically, why does White America like Barack Obama?

I haven’t seen this charisma (edit:  I see his charisma.  But it seems a charade to me). Maybe I’m not fooled by it because I’ve been around so many races for so many years. In my life, race just hasn’t mattered. But I’ve noticed in America, race is a central issue to almost everything. But the only races that really matter. The only colors that really matter politically are Black and White. Kinda funny. It’s as if no other race exists. White and Black or African American and nothing else. Asian doesn’t matter. No one notices. Hispanic only comes into the picture in the Southwest and only nationally, if you are one of the demonized illegal immigrants. Chinese, Indians, Arabs. Who are they? Most people in the States think that China is a country in the lands of Narnia for the Knight Jack Ryan to save damsels in distress from neo-Nazi terrorists who wanted to Nuke a football stadium that some guy named Tom Clancy conjured for his movie scripts. (Didn’t he write books, too.) What’s hilarious is that if you are really from Africa, you aren’t African American. Even if you are black and especially if you are white. Now that’s a wild, new spin on geo-politics and race relations.

Obama gets the Will Smith pass. He’s a black guy who looks kinda white. Talks like a white guy. Don’t ask me what that means. Ask a black comedian. They make fun of white guys talking all the time. The speaking mannerism at which they poke fun is all Obama. Obama wears business suits instead of gangsta baggy pants and white T-shirts or NBA Jerseys. He is White America to a capital T-e-e.

Why is Obama so popular with white America and especially Liberals?

I think it’s because he’s a likable, white-black guy. He’s black but he’s white. He acts, talks and has all of the mannerisms of a white American. If you heard him talk on the phone, you’d assume that he was a white guy. He’s not a reverend in the mold of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. He certainly doesn’t talk like those guys. Especially when he turns on that laughably fake Southern accent. He’s completely vanilla. He’s not hip hop or gangsta rap. At his “Blackest,” he is the political Will Smith.

Politically, he says virtually nothing. So there is nothing that will really upset anyone. The guy has no real political personality. He mimics the Hope campaigns of Reagan and the Kennedy’s. Does he have any ideas of his own. Nothing that I’ve heard.

Basically, he makes white Americans feel good about themselves. Because he is a black person with whom they feel comfortable. So they feel like they are not racist. So they aren’t bad people.

If Obama were a white guy, he’d be a professor at the City Colleges of Chicago.

Hell, he kind of reminds me of Richie Cunningham.
