John Hinderaker at Powerline calls our attention to …



  “That is a big topic on which much can be said. The U.S. has dabbled in National Socialism before; elements of Roosevelt’s New Deal emulated Mussolini’s policies, and were implemented by men who made no secret of their admiration for Il Duce. But it has been a long time since anyone has seriously tried to turn the United States in a National Socialist direction.



Which is what Barack Obama seems to be doing. Consider his 983 executive orders, compared with George W. Bush’s 63. Or his extra-constitutional czars; or his illegal cramdown of bondholders in auto bankruptcies; or the explosion in warrantless wiretaps and the even greater explosion in federal regulations; or his “green energy” scams to distort the economy and enrich political cronies; or the recent revelation that the Obama family costs U.S. taxpayers something like twenty times what the British Royal Family costs its subjects. Or, more important, consider Obamacare, a classic top-down National Socialist program.”


We Can ” Hope “


  “The main threat to the administration’s cover-up has never been American reporters, almost all of whom are desperately trying to get Obama re-elected. Rather, the danger is that more of the cell phone pictures and movies that were taken by Libyans of events in Benghazi and, in particular, of Ambassador Stevens, inevitably will surface, and will disrupt the administration’s narrative.”

  John Hinderaker shares with those of us unfortunate enough to not be on the democrats fundraising lists , just how they are cloaking their polling woes in monetary terms .

Beggary is so unattractive .

” The Democrats couch their anxiety in terms of fundraising, but that isn’t the real problem. The real problem is what they are seeing in the polls: Romney leading in likely voter surveys; Romney more trusted than Obama on the economy and other key issues; enthusiasm higher among
Republicans than Democrats; and so on. The extent of the anxiety the Democrats are feeling comes through loud and clear in their email communications. “

The good people at Powerline point us the a study by Peter Schweitzer that parsed the numbers from Obama’s meeting schedule .

   Dear Leader certainly is focussed ” laser-like” on the economic problems that we face .

   Considering the ” Obama Touch” wherein all that he touches turns to s..t ,perhaps we should be thankful for his inattention .

  After all he must be very busy building all those things that we don’t .

  What an unappreciative bunch of rubes we are . Such ingrates .

   Just think how bad things could be if he gave it his full attention .

” • So far this year, Obama has spent 24 total hours in economic meetings of any kind.

• Throughout his presidency, Obama has spent an average of 138 minutes a week in economic meetings. For comparison, consider that dog owners spend an average of 130 minutes a week walking their dogs .”

Romney Unloads

Romney Hits His Stride as told by John Hinderaker of Powerline

” By all accounts, Mitt Romney was sensational today in Pennsylvania. His theme was Barack Obama’s revelatory “you didn’t build that”
speech. Over the lunch hour (here in the Midwest), Twitter was burning up with commentary from those who were watching Romney’s speech live. The commentary was
unanimously euphoric. “

“The National Rifle Association has decided to throw it’s considerable weight behind Mitt Romney in this year’s election. That is no surprise; the gun lobby has always viewed
Barack Obama and his administration with suspicion. But the NRA says is it “all in” to defeat
Obama; we will see what that translates into as the campaign continues. “

John Hinderaker

  ” Barack Obama has developed quite a record as a liar. He lied for more than a decade about where he was born. He lied about many aspects of his life in his fictional “memoir.” He lied about his Chicago years and his activities andassociations there. (Has anyone ever asked the question, what did Obama do when he lived in
Chicago, and whom did he know there, since it seems that all of the activities and associations
of which we have a record are now, as Nixon might say, inoperative.) To answer my own question, I think a candidate likely can lie his way into office, but I doubt that in incumbent president can lie his way to re-election. For the first time in his life, apparently, Barack Obama has a record. “

   Another example of the establishment Left s embrace of the more radical elements of society … along with the added bonus of  showing the growing irrelevance of their toadies such as Move-on …. LOL

” So the demonstration was a washout. But that doesn’t mean that there is nothing to be learned
from it. On the contrary, the event illustrates how closely intertwined the “respectable” Left ( i.e ., the Democratic Party) has become with the disreputable, and often outright criminal, Left.

  Who, exactly, organized the Romney/Koch protest? The principal organizers were Andy
Stepanian of Sparrow Media, Aaron Black of Occupy New York and Laura Dawn, Creative Director of MoveOn.org. Let’s focus on
Stepanian, who said on Facebook that The Sparrow Project (i.e., Stepanian) is “coordinating
PR around this Hamptons action.”

   So who is he? Stepanian is a self-described terrorist and convicted felon who was sentenced to three years in prison . (It was Chris Christie, by the way, who put him away.) Breitbart.com has written about Stepanian, noting that he continues to threaten violence against political opponents. “

   Good leaders surround themselves with good people , incompetent ones associate with incompetents . There is no better example than this administration . 

John Hinderaker explains

   ” Holder’s letter is a remarkable document. Viewed from a strictly technical standpoint, it is a terrible piece of legal work. Its arguments are weak at best; in some cases, they are so frivolous as to invite the imposition of sanctions if they were asserted in court. I will explain why momentarily, but first this observation: if an opposing party requests documents that plainly are protected by a privilege, a lawyer will routinely assert the privilege, on principle, even though there is nothing hurtful to his case in those documents. On the other hand, a lawyer will not assert a lousy claim of privilege unless he badly wants to keep the documents in question out of the opponent’s hands because of their damaging nature. If I am correct that the administration’s assertion of executive privilege is baseless, it is reasonable to infer that the documents, if made public, would be highly damaging to President Obama, Attorney General Holder, or other senior administration officials. Now, as to Holder’s letter:”

Obama Doctrine

 This partial listing of Obama’s “legal precedents” should give pause to any lover of liberty . 

 From Powerline .

  “Remember the good old days when Democrats cared about the rule of law? Or pretended to, anyway. That was during the Bush administration, even though most if not all of the policies that prompted “rule of law” complaints from the left were in fact supported by good legal authority. That was then, and this is now: the Age of Obama is, among its many other faults, an age of lawlessness. I won’t attempt anything like a complete catalog, but let’s just recall a few–the cramdown of bondholders’ rights that first caused the label “Gangster Government” to be applied to the administration; the circumvention of administrative procedures to speed up cash flow to the administration’s “green energy” cronies; the illegal funneling of weapons to Mexican drug cartels; the attempt to dictate religious doctrine to the Catholic Church in violation of the First Amendment; and the president’s targeting of Mitt Romney’s financial supporters with vicious smears, including falsely accusing them of being criminals.”

  Thanks to John Hinderaker for pointing out the existence of this first rate , professional video that provides the viewer with a concise overview of the government-run travesty known , although not nearly widely enough , as “Fast & Furious” . Highly recommended , especially to the previously uninitiated . A perfect primer on the biggest presidential scandal in generations .

   “This new video by American Future Fund, titled simply “Fast and Furious,” is an excellent, effective introduction to the scandal. Someone should spend a great deal of money to put it on television in all of the swing states:”

   We couldn’t agree more thoroughly with John’s suggestion to make this into a major airtime purchase from now til November . Everyone needs to see this before they vote . 

Conservatives Atwitter

From John at Powerline 

“We are in the early stages of the 2012 campaign season, with a lot of battlespace preparation going on. In the skirmishing so far, one perhaps surprising media advantage has become clear: the right is clobbering the left on Twitter.”

  This subject is very dear to my heart . When you consider the meme that the progs are so cool , hip and up to date in the ways of social media it makes me laugh every time Obama and his shills launch a new media campaign only to see it totally taken over by the right . 




Time’s ; Are You Mother Enough ? 

WaPost’s ; Bully Business 


Some of the current questions posed to Michelle as amassed by John:

 ” When you vacation in Hawaii, can you see the rise of the oceans beginning to slow?
What’s up this week for the @BarackObama campaign and “Operation Change the Subject” (to anything except the economy)?
Do you still exchange May Day cards with Bill and Bernadette?
Do you think your daughters should request affirmative actions preferences?
Do you still get Christmas cards from the Rezkos and Blagojeviches?
So who succeeded you at that critical, highly important $300k/year community outreach job at UC hospital?
I have several friends who specialize in relocation. Shall I give them your number so they can help you relocate in January? “


  It doesn’t matter what they try , they are immediately swamped by those knuckle-dragging , clinging ,bitter  inbreds from flyover country .
