They Did It To Themselves

So James Carville famously says back in 2009 that Democrats would rule for another 40 years.

That was last year, and here we are.

Why? Simple. King Zero, Pelosi, Reid, and the progressive/socialist/Marxist factions within the halls of congress grossly misread what they perceived to be their ‘mandate’, and then when it should have become obvious to them that they were losing the American people in droves, at the precise moment a sane and responsible leadership would have slammed on the brakes, they forged ahead with massively, massively unpopular and in some cases, ie; healthcare, flat-out unconstitutional legislation anyway. Right up our asses, and didn’t even kiss us.

Add to that the flagrant in-your-face cockiness, arrogance and straight up nastiness displayed by the liberal media, by scum of the earth blogs like the kos, and by hate-filled, invective-spewing ‘everyday’ liberals – you know, like the legions ‘one nation’ rally attendees who can shout every single DNC and Media Matters talking point at 103 decibels but who don’t have, nor care to have, the requisite knowledge to articulate their positions or speak intelligently about the very subjects they’re whining about. They’ll call us terrorists but can’t explain why there’s a picture of Che Guevara on their shirt. They call us violent but can’t point to or cite a single incidence of conservative-incited violence, while we have a seemingly endless supply of video depicting leftist-instigated violence. They call us racist, but then call black conservatives “uncle Toms”, “house niggers” and ‘race traitors’

These people are shallow, arrogant, obnoxious, greedy and stupid. They lie just as easily and naturally as drawing a breath. And for the last two years, they’ve completely given up trying to hide it.

Obama told them to ‘get in their faces’, and they did. And now, John Boehner will be the new speaker of the house, presiding over a 239-seat (not counting the races not yet decided) Republican majority. We have 10 new Republican governorships, we’ve picked up approximately 680 state legislature seats, flipping somewhere in the neighborhood of nineteen chambers in the process. My state, North Carolina, has its first Republican legislature in 130 years.

The liberal left is going ballistic. Ballistic. The whining and lashing out among the rank-and-file is pathetic, but not at all unexpected. It just makes me chuckle.

So, to my liberal friends I say this: You’ve had your shot, you’ve shown us all who you really are in no uncertain terms, and now you’re done. MY America will never, ever put your kind back in power again, and you have no one to blame but yourselves, your man-child president, and your blind ideology..

And – bestowing upon you the same level of courtesy and respect you’ve shown us these past couple of years -  I hope you fucking choke on it.

Once Again, The Liberal Left Are The Smartest People In The Room

Sarah Palin at a Tea Party event in Reno, Nevada yesterday (10/18/2010), tells the crowd not to “party like it’s 1773″ just yet regarding the anticipated republican gains in the upcoming mid-term elections.

What happens next is almost too predictable.

The left, displaying for one and all its collective grasp of American history and the founding years, has a friggin’ orgasm over this percieved ‘gaffe’.

There are quite a few more, but these two go straight to the top of the list by virtue of who they are and the supposed ‘enlightened’ populus and political/social ideologies they claim to represent.

But here’s the best part : The more these people talk, the more snide, uninformed comments, mischaracterizations and flat-out lies they throw out against people such as Sarah Palin who are clearly their intellectual and moral superiors – not to mention just plain right – the more thoroughly repellent they and their positions become to this great nation’s formerly apolitical population.

They can’t hide it anymore.

So please, Gwen and Markos, keep on talking and being who you are, because you’re swelling our ranks by the day.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer continues to display the kind of courage and conviction that very few modern-day politicians are capable of. In a concept completely foreign to our current rogue federal government, she continues to actively defend and protect her people.

The anti-American jackass in the white house could learn lots from principled American leaders like Gov. Brewer; alas King Zero has no interest in protecting our country, its citizens, or the things that have made us great.

What Part of ‘NO’ Don’t They Understand?

From Dick Morris via Newsmax:

Highly informed sources on Capitol Hill have revealed to me details of the Democratic plan to sneak Obamacare through Congress, despite collapsing public approval for healthcare “reform” and disintegrating congressional support in the wake of Republican Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts.

President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid all have agreed to the basic framework of the plan.

Their plan is clever but can be stopped if opponents of radical healthcare reform act quickly and focus on a core group of 23 Democratic Congressman. If just a few of these 23 Democrats are “flipped” and decide to oppose the bill, the whole Obama-Pelosi-Reid stratagem falls apart.

Here’s what I learned top Democrats are planning to implement.

Senate Democrats will go to the House with a two-part deal.

First, the House will pass the Senate’s Obamacare bill that passed the Senate in December. The House leadership will vote on the Senate bill, and Pelosi will allow no amendments or modifications to the Senate bill.

How will Pelosi’s deal fly with rambunctious liberal members of her majority who don’t like the Senate bill, especially its failure to include a public option, put heavy fines on those who don’t get insurance, and offering no income tax surcharge on the “rich”?

That’s where the second part of the Pelosi-deal comes in.

Behind closed doors, Reid and Pelosi have agreed in principle that changes to the Senate bill will be made to satisfy liberal House members — but only after the Senate bill is passed and signed into law by Obama.

This deal will be secured by a pledge from Reid and the Senate’s Democratic caucus that they will make “fixes” to the Senate bill after it becomes law with Obama’s John Hancock.

The plan is then to get it through the senate via reconciliation, which would only require 51 Democrat votes. According to Morris, Reid feels he can secure at least 52 votes.

Dems Lie, Cheat and Steal: Election Day Edition

This afternoon, Martha Coakley’s campaign accused the Scott Brown campaign of cheating in today’s special election. The specific accusation involved ballot tampering.

The press release:

For Immediate Release: January 19, 2010

Contact: Alex Zaroulis (617) 549-0358

Campaign Manager Kevin Conroy:

We’ve received several independent and disturbing reports of voters across the state being handed ballots that are already marked in favor of Scott Brown.  This is obviously a serious violation, and our legal team is taking immediate steps to protect the integrity of this election.

We do not yet know why this is happening, but you and everyone you know needs to be aware of the situation so that you can carefully inspect your ballot.  If a vote has already been marked, you must return the ballot to the elections official, demand a clean ballot, and call our Voter Protection Hotline at 617-351-6866.
###

Problem is, the original version of this press release was dated yesterday, January 18th 2010. A full day before the polls even opened. Here is a screenshot from before they corrected the date (courtesy Big Government):

Response from the Brown campaign. Not sure if this is in its entirety; it was all I’ve been able to find:

“Reports that the Coakley campaign is making reckless accusations regarding the integrity of today’s election is a reminder that they are a desperate campaign. In fact, news reports point out that today’s accusation was a pre-dated, in the bag political attack. Furthermore, Senator John Kerry accused Brown supporters of intimidation and bullying — a tactic taken directly from his own 2004 playbook. The reality is that Massachusetts voters will determine the outcome of this election despite political attacks leveled by Martha Coakley and national Democrats.” — Daniel B. Winslow, Counsel for the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate Campaign

CLICK HERE to view a screen shot of the pre-dated attack.

In 2004, Kerry’s Campaign Team Sent A Guidebook To Their Colorado Staff Telling Them To Launch A “Pre-Emptive Strike” If “No Signs Of Intimidation Techniques” Are Reported. “If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a ‘pre-emptive strike’ (particularly well-suited to states in which there techniques have been tried in the past).

* Issue a press release

i. Reviewing Republican tactic used in the past in your area or state

ii. Quoting party/minority/civil rights leadership as denouncing tactics that discourage people from voting

* Prime minority leadership to discuss the issue in the media; provide talking points
* Place stories in which minority leadership expresses concern about the threat of intimidation tactics
* Warn local newspapers not to accept advertising that is not properly disclaimed or that contains false warnings about voting requirements and/or about what will happen at the polls” (Kerry-Edwards 2004, “Colorado Election Day Manual: A Detailed Guide To Voting In Colorado,” 11/04)

As you might expect, none of the claims of ballot fraud could be verified. No big surprise there. The Massachusetts Secretary of State has dismissed the allegations outright.

As one commenter put it, “These people (Coakley campaign) are so stupid they couldn’t fall out of a boat”

Coakley witnesses campaign staffer assault reporter, does nothing

This says as much or more about the character of the liberal senatorial candidate from Massachusetts, Martha Coakley – who, incidentally, is the Massachusetts Attorney General - than anything else that could be proven of her to date.

Coakley actually stood right there and witnessed a reporter from the Weekly Standard being assaulted by a campaign staffer, and did absolutely nothing about it.

Assault and battery is a crime. Even in Massachusetts. Martha Coakley is Massachusetts’ cheif law enforcement officer. Are you beginning to understand the problem we have here?

It is being reported by Ed Morrissey at Hot Air that the assailant may be a man by the name of Michael Meehan of Blue Line Strategic Communications, “…who has worked for John Kerry, Maria Cantwell, and was sent to Massachusetts by the DSCC to handle “messaging” for Coakley.”

Like seemingly everyone else in this once semi-respectable party, Coakley is a disgrace, and the good people of Massachusetts, ragardless of political affiliation, should be embarrassed and ashamed to have this woman claiming to represent them.

Hot Air has the story, along with a video and pictures of the assault, and a good still photo of the assailant.

Sarah Palin: Midnight Votes, Backroom Deals, and a Death Panel

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

Midnight Votes, Backroom Deals, and a Death Panel

Last weekend while you were preparing for the holidays with your family, Harry Reid’s Senate was making shady backroom deals to ram through the Democrat health care take-over. The Senate ended debate on this bill without even reading it. That and midnight weekend votes seem to be standard operating procedures in D.C. No one is certain of what’s in the bill, but Senator Jim DeMint spotted one shocking revelation regarding the section in the bill describing the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (now called the Independent Payment Advisory Board), which is a panel of bureaucrats charged with cutting health care costs on the backs of patients – also known as rationing. Apparently Reid and friends have changed the rules of the Senate so that the section of the bill dealing with this board can’t be repealed or amended without a 2/3 supermajority vote. Senator DeMint said:

“This is a rule change. It’s a pretty big deal. We will be passing a new law and at the same time creating a senate rule that makes it out of order to amend or even repeal the law. I’m not even sure that it’s constitutional, but if it is, it most certainly is a senate rule. I don’t see why the majority party wouldn’t put this in every bill. If you like your law, you most certainly would want it to have force for future senates. I mean, we want to bind future congresses. This goes to the fundamental purpose of senate rules: to prevent a tyrannical majority from trampling the rights of the minority or of future congresses.”

In other words, Democrats are protecting this rationing “death panel” from future change with a procedural hurdle. You have to ask why they’re so concerned about protecting this particular provision. Could it be because bureaucratic rationing is one important way Democrats want to “bend the cost curve” and keep health care spending down?

The Congressional Budget Office seems to think that such rationing has something to do with cost. In a letter to Harry Reid last week, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf noted (with a number of caveats) that the bill’s calculations call for a reduction in Medicare’s spending rate by about 2 percent in the next two decades, but then he writes the kicker:

“It is unclear whether such a reduction in the growth rate could be achieved, and if so, whether it would be accomplished through greater efficiencies in the delivery of health care or would reduce access to care or diminish the quality of care.”

Though Nancy Pelosi and friends have tried to call “death panels” the “lie of the year,” this type of rationing – what the CBO calls “reduc[ed] access to care” and “diminish[ed] quality of care” – is precisely what I meant when I used that metaphor.

This health care bill is one of the most far-reaching and expensive expansions of the role of government into our lives. We’re talking about putting one-seventh of our economy under the government’s thumb. We’re also talking about something as intimate to our personal well-being as medical care.

This bill is so unpopular that people on the right and the left hate it. So why go through with it? The Senate is planning to vote on this on Christmas Eve. Why the rush? Though we will begin paying for this bill immediately, we will see no benefits for years. (That’s the trick that allowed the CBO to state that the bill won’t grow the deficit for the next ten years.)

The administration’s promises of transparency and bipartisanship have been broken one by one. This entire process has been defined by midnight votes on weekends, closed-door meetings with industry lobbyists, and payoffs to politicians willing to sell their principles for sweetheart deals. Is it any wonder that Americans are so disillusioned with their leaders in Washington?

This is about politics, not health care. Americans don’t want this bill. Americans don’t like this bill. Washington has stopped listening to us. But we’re paying attention, and 2010 is coming.

There’s No Winning The Race Hustle

From the Baltimore Sun:

A federal judge suggested Monday that he might restrict the scope of a first-of-its kind lawsuit filed by the city of Baltimore against mortgage giant Wells Fargo Bank N.A.

The city accuses Wells Fargo of engaging in illegal “reverse redlining” — targeting black neighborhoods for bad loans that resulted in mass foreclosures. The resulting drain on city services cost tens of millions of dollars, the lawsuit alleges.

Lawyers for Wells Fargo filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit in September, arguing that the city lacked standing to file the complaint. Baltimore was the first municipality to sue a lender in the wake of the subprime mortgage crisis. Similar lawsuits were later filed in Cleveland and Birmingham, Ala., but those complaints have been dismissed by federal judges.

Ok, it’s like this: ACORN, other racial grievance groups, and assorted race hustlers pressure banks both directly and through the federal government to provide mortgages to people who absolutely, no-freakin’-way-in-hell would ever have qualified for them on their own and who clearly would have no way of paying them back. This is a fact. Then, in what must have been a shock to everyone, said loan recipients default on their mortgages and the homes go into foreclosure. Then, the city of Baltimore sues the mortgage lender for racially motivated criminal activity.

So, the banks are racist for not providing loans to people who aren’t credit-worthy, then they’re racist for providing loans to people who aren’t credit-worthy.

Does the ‘black community’ really not understand why people are hesitant to do business in/with it? Really?

A rational man might conclude that the only winning move would be not to play, and he would be right.

According to Michelle Malkin:

Update: A Hill source says to pay attention to Sen. Ben Nelson. He is reportedly being threatened with closure of an air force base if he doesn’t fall in line and will be offered a “blank check” bribe bigger than Sen. Landrieu’s.

Landrieu, as you may recall, accepted a $100 MILLION bribe – which she later said was really $300 million – in exchange for her Aye vote allowing the healthcare bill debate to proceed in the Senate.

No confirmation yet on the base closure threat, but if it’s true, it’s just furter proof that these Reid-led democrat crooks will stop at nothing – not even the weakening of our military and the destruction of a local economy – to get this healthcare bill passed.

If the threat alone doesn’t get Nelson, then we the taxpayers will fund the payoff that will buy Nelson’s vote – the very vote that will destroy not only our healthcare system, but our economy, our children’s future, and our very way of life.

Oh, and if you still think this bill is about healthcare, than you’re a bigger fool than you were when you voted these creeps into office in the first place.
