So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Commentapalooza III

Never fear, loyal readers, Newton (Part 21) is well along in draft. Barry made certain of that by kicking off his Magical Agitation Tour.

However, my muse has been taking a lot of naps lately – the lazy bastard. Which means Part 21 is solidly stuck in draft at the moment. So, to keep up my established pace of 1.6 posts per week (on average with a 0.6 standard deviation), we can enjoy falling back on the “commentapalooza” format together. As a refresher, this is where I simply aggregate LAS comment board snark that has generated traffic back to this site, with aging equal to or greater than 90 days. It’s good to have a cheesy format to fall back on when the muse is slacking off – that’s called ‘economy of scale,’ kiddies. The last two times, I ordered the presentation chronologically. This time … no, I don’t think so - too much work. It’s Friday night, after all.


LAS wonders what’s taking the House so long to draft the articles.

The Left always picks such pathetically useless fights, don’t they?

LAS calls out Bill Ayers.

Boob. Belt.

Mataconis is still an idiot.

LAS recalls the Incredible Collapsing Pro-Life Democrat.

And then she talked … damn it!

How’s that ‘Arab Spring’ workin’ out fer ya?

Daddy was a cop, you know.

2010 prelude to Barry’s Magical Agitation Tour.

So, how’s that ‘Arab Spring’ workin’ out fer ya?

Newton’s Three Laws (Part 20)

The recent avalanche of political news is all good, as far as this humble blog project is concerned. Progressive (statist) policy is predictably collapsing, progressive (statist) street agitation is somehow also failing pathetically, progressive (statist) use of social media is a subject of mockery, and liberty loving conservatives are doing the mocking. LibertyAtStake approves. LAS also sees a trend obviously worthy of his Newtonian political observation series. Hell, even James Carville is advising the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama that it is time to ‘panic.’ How much more obvious could it get than that?


I wrote the following into my 1/28/2010 post, when Scott Brown – a politician with an (R) after his name – was elected by Massachusetts of all states, to sit in Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, of all seats. (*footnote 1)

The wheels are coming off for the Obama administration. The wheels are coming off for the Democrat party. The wheels are coming off for the regulatory/campus/newsroom complex. The wheels are coming off for the American Progressive project.

And now 20 more months into the undeniably disastrous and failed Obama experiment, who can deny my foresight?


The American Progressive Left’s canon of policy positions has proven to be an utter disaster for the republic.

The biggest dose of Keynesian stimulus economics in history has given us long term structural unemployment stuck at 9-10% and quarterly GDP growth that can barely be measured in what is now officially called a “slow recovery,” but will be recognized as a double dip recession soon enough.

They are engaged in a mad rush to alienate as many American citizens as possible - with the suffocating regulatory regime they are force-feeding to an unwilling private sector. When they had control of both houses of congress, they shoved ObamaCare down our throats like a frontier mother may have forced castor oil into a resisting infant. When they lost absolute control of congress in the 2010, they hardly missed a beat in pivoting to producing a blizzard of restrictive regulations from faceless and unaccountable bureaucracies with three letter acronyms like EPA, HHS, FDA, ad nauseum.

The composite of their foreign and military policies is rapidly yielding the most dangerous and unstable world in living memory. A world in which the crescent and star of radical Islamic jihad is on the rise, nuclear armed, and in control of more than one nation-state.

Victor Davis Hanson, who does this sort of thing professionally, has written the political obituary.

And most telling, these Leftists can’t even organize a decent street demonstration anymore. This used to be their core competency. Yet, the so-called ‘Day of Rage’ on Wall Street last weekend looked to LAS more like a production of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ With a small cast.


People are noticing.

The people in Queens, New York have noticed sufficiently to elect a politician with an (R) after his name - in the district formerly represented by Progressive hero Anthony “seven inch” Weiner and various other Democrats for 93 solid years.

The people in Washoe County, Nevada have noticed sufficiently to give a politician with an (R) after his name a ten point victory. Ten points in a congressional election is roughly equivalent to a 10-0 score in baseball, just as a reference point.

Nationwide, even a clear majority of the clueless independents whose judgment this blog has expended so much energy fretting about have rejected the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.


Mission Accomplished?

No, I don’t think so - the problem for the republic is the Left never, ever, relinquishes political power willingly. I also doubt the nationwide gaggle of clueless independents actually gets it’s the message (Progressivism) and not the messenger (Obama) that plaques the republic.

So, the epic battle to save the republic from the bankrupt ideology of American Progressivism carries on, verily even quickens despite the utter collapse of the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.

The generally upbeat and humorous editors of the American Spectator have forwarded to me this advice on the 37 things I should be hoarding to survive the coming collision. Yikes! And the earnest proprietors at World Net Daily assume I could benefit from instructional videos on the topic of handgun use. Hmmmm. It seems some think we are headed for a ‘Road Warriors’ existence in the very near future.  If so, LAS will miss the top shelf beer.

But I don’t really think so. I honestly believe we are living through the opening stages of a great Conservative Ascendancy – with a distinctly libertarian flavor. This libertarian conservative moment is an explosive revival of the very same First Amendment Rham Emanuel told us in 2009 was overrated.

Rham Emanuel is a statist, so naturally he would find the individual liberties guaranteed to citizens in the First Amendment “overrated.” These liberties represent an inconvenience to the implementation of the statist’s collectivist, centrally planned, utopian fantasies.

And when you are a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Which brings me to social media – the greatest enabler of liberty since the printing press.

The statists running the administration of BHO and his corrupt gang of Progressives – quite idiotically – have always viewed social media as a tool for centrally orchestrating armies of political operatives with an “inside-out” command driven propaganda model. They are right insofar as sheeples previously enslaved as serfs within the statist model will comply with the orders they receive from their social media talking points.

What the statists never counted on is the power of social media to bind together the vast numbers of misfits who are generally inclined to go their own way. Without social media, these liberty loving individualists are a collection of unrelated individuals. With social media, they are able to bind together in their common interest of pushing back against the statist’s threats to their collective right to individual liberty.

I offer as proof of my thesis the brand new YouTube channel “Misfit Politics.” First of all, the name grabbed me right away. How could I not take immediate notice of something that combined two of my favoritest all-time entertainment options: [1] The Kinks (1978 album = “Misfits”) and [2] Politics (continuous loop = “Send In the Clowns”)?

And these guys (and/or gals), whoever they are, have real talent. So much talent, LAS has seen fit to add them to my video roll immediately upon viewing their 3 maiden efforts.


LAS believes Misfit Politics has a bright future in the Conservative Ascendancy - in humiliating and mocking statists. The noted statist Saul Alinksy would be proud of the means, if not the ends.

Footnote 1

Today’s hijinks from the statist assigned to the task of reclaiming Teddy Kennedy’s seat from Scott Brown ... Elizabeth Warren ... who made the idiotic mistake in the age of social media of assuming she could deliver red meat to a friendly crowd without anyone else seeing her do it.  GLWT Lizzie.

Update 9/24/11

It would appear Elizabeth Warren isn't the only Leftist "economist" who wants to confiscate more of your wealth ...via a plan to nationalize private retirement funds... and it seems BHO and his corrupt gang of Progressives were in on the heist when they drafted their 2010 budget.

Update 9/25/11

Dear Leader is unhappy with these developments.

On the heels of their shrewd launch of the site, Obama For America (OFA) has upped the ante.

OFA campaign manager Jim Messina sent out the following fundraising email to OFA supporters today.

Friends –

This week’s launch has proven to be an unprecedented success story in the annals of grass roots citizen involvement. Your involvement progresses the progressive march toward economic, social, racial, environmental, and every other kind of justice we can make up. You have helped us harness the power of social media, to enable OFA zombies like you to be our network of informants on our political enemies. And not only are you unpaid for your services to Obama, but you are actually willing to send us money for the privilege. Obama is so thrilled with your service to him, he has decided to eat rubber chicken with a select few of you, as his way of saying thank you.

As all of our OFA friends know, the frantic march toward progressive justices never stops. You made the Twitter hashtag #ATTACKWATCH a national story instantly upon launch. To follow up on this unprecedented success, we here at the OFA Central Planning Committee have naturally come up with something else for you to do for us. Our philosophical visionary, Saul Alinsky,  taught us with his rule 8 – “attack, attack, attack” and his rule 12 – “polarize and freeze the target” that we must assassinate individual characters. Therefore, over the coming days we will be astro-turfing new Twitter hashtags you can use to swarm over individually chosen conservatives.

The first test run will be #ATTACKJWD. Now get those Twitter thumbs loose and pound it out on Jack Wiley Dithers, that contemptible conservative contributor to the amazingly annoying blog LibertyAtStake!

YIKES! OFA’s zombie army is pointed right at the beloved inspirational leader of our crackerjack investigative journalism team, here at our humble little blog! Here’s a sample of the hurtful comments we’ve already seen on the #ATTACKJWD feed.

#ATTACKJWD Dithers subscribed to Journolist before he wrote about it.
Tweeted by: Ezra Klein

Jack Wiley Dithers almost never has a crease in his pants. The #ATTACKJWD vulgarian!
Tweeted by: David Brooks

JWD is a slimy hypocrite. Supports #ATTACKJWD Defense of Marriage Act, yet still runs that tingle up my leg.
Tweeted by: Chris Matthews

If #ATTACKJWD LAS doesn’t fire JWD immediately, I’m moving to France!
Tweeted by: Alec Baldwin

I once saw a copy of #ATTACKJWD Milton Friedman’s “Capitalism and Freedom” on Dithers’ book shelf. He must be arrested immediately.
Tweeted by: Paul Krugman

Dithers is a #ATTACKJWD thief. He stole my copy of the Democrat 2010 campaign strategy book.
Tweeted by: Joe Biden

JWD is worserer than the #ATTACKJWD worserest person on Earth. Ever.
Tweeted by: Keith Olbermann

Dithers is a slave labor capitalist - never #ATTACKJWD pays his sources.
Tweeted by: Arianna Huffington

I heard a rumor Dithers once owned a #ATTACKJWD corporate jet. The #ATTACKJWD bastard!
Tweeted by: Ed Schultz

I overheard Dithers saying his favorite political philosopher is #ATTACKJWD DWM John Locke.
Tweeted by: Anita Dunn

Dithers once visited the estates of #ATTACKJWD slave-owners Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
Tweeted by: Van Jones

JWD sympathizes with #ATTACKJWD TEA Party movement. This makes him a domestic terrorist. He must be arrested now.
Tweeted by: Bill Ayers

When we briefed Mr. Dithers on this deeply unsettling development, finding him at his usual 7 pm Friday location – the National Press Club bar – he calmly set down his bourbon and soda and proceeded to tweet the following:


Footnote 1

'Jack Wiley Dithers' is a “phonetic” pseudonym, inspired by Barack Hussein Obama’s 2009 decision process regarding troop levels in Afghanistan.  I couldn't come up with anything better of an equal or greater length.

Footnote 2

In the pseudo-tweets above, replace the #ATTACKJWD hashtag with your favorite expletive for advanced reading.

Three Laws of Motion (Part 19) … Make It the Newtonian Stupid or Treasonous Edition … No, Let’s Do E2E!

It was difficult deciding how to properly treat Barry’s Big J-O-B-S speech of September 8, 2011 in the context of this blog. The epic train wreck that was History’s Most Ill-Conceived Address to a Joint Session of Congress generated a limitless supply of potential energy for political satire.

This momentous failure of executive governance certainly did fit as the next installment – Part 19 to be precise – of the Contemporary Politics and Newton’s Three Law’s of Motion series. Future historians will mark this speech as the opening shot of the last stand for the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. The Dow’s 300 point plunge the very next day – to below the psychologically important 11,000 mark – is just the tip of the iceberg. The Dow will probably right itself, but it’s highly negative 24 hour reaction to Barry’s empty speechification will be matched by a precipitous decline in voter approval for BHO, which will never again recover.

Then, of course, there is the question that still nags at the national conscience – "is BHO intentionally wrecking the whole damn place?" Nobody capable of getting elected POTUS could be this stupid, could they? This question obviously made it a potential fit as the next installment in my Stupid or Treasonous series … except I’ve already settled on Treasonous. See the writings and actions of Saul Alinksy, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Van Jones, and numerous other criminal and radical BHO associates for my evidentiary submission.

So, moving on to new, recently established, literary horizons on this blog … with thanks to for generating many dozens of hits on this blog (yes, literally dozens I tell you!) … and thus reminding me of the English-To-English (E2E) format … as well as ABC News for providing the complete transcript (not a half bad transcription for the corrupt and biased MSM, there's hope yet) … I give you the E2E translation of History’s Most Ill-Conceived Address to a Joint Session of Congress.


We continue to face an economic crisis that has left millions of our neighbors jobless, and a political crisis that has made things worse.

E2E: We continue to face an economic crisis that has been extended by my rigidly ideological policies, and a political crisis that has been deepened by my rigid ideological intransigence.

But the millions of Americans who are watching right now: they don't care about politics.

E2E: I’m counting on bamboozling millions of clueless independents tonight.

And they know that Washington hasn't always put their interests first.

E2E: I am hoping tonight I can convince millions of clueless independents to adopt Washington as their savior.

There are steps we can take right now to improve people's lives.

E2E: You can count on me going directly into campaign mode to whip up my lunatic base into pressuring you pass my Progressive program.

There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation.


And everything in this bill will be paid for. Everything.

It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for the long-term unemployed.

E2E: Unions and the desperate are my natural constituency. This is their payoff with the expectation I will receive their votes.

You should pass this jobs plan right away.

E2E: Nobody can mobilize chaos and anarchy like the unions and the desperate – under proper Democrat guidance of course. (That's a threat in case you're slow on the uptake)

So for everyone who speaks so passionately about making life easier for "job creators," this plan is for you.

E2E: Political Grandstanding, Class warfare, Redistribution, yattee-yatta-yatta, chirp chirp chirp, wah-wah-wah …

This approach is basically the one I've been advocating for months

E2E: Damn that Paul Ryan for making this a serious national discussion.


Oh, look on the big screen … are you ready for some football!?

Quickie Analysis: Barry’s Big J-O-B-S Speech of 2011

Far too big a train wreck for the amateur blogger to fully address tonight. First and foremost – it was the same old Barry. Sanctimonious. Arrogant. Duplicitous. Assumptive. Insulting to the reasonable mind. Heavy Handed.  LEFT WING PARTISAN TO THE CORE. My very next post will address the matter in detail. But now is not the right time to do this epic train wreck justice . My day at the day job (glad to have it) was particularly “interesting” today – six hours in one planning meeting, with all the 3D chess horse trading, plus all the usual shtuff (sic) that comes with the day job. I need a rest.

I came into my viewership of the speech with the following prequel prepared. “xx” represents numeric placeholders pending further factual research. Underlines are indicators to go find links for support.
Warm Beer and Cold Pizza … “The Breakfast of Champions”

That’s what Barry’s Big J-O-B-S speech of September 8, 2011 was. After partying it up, Keynesian style, with Stimulus I (trillion dollar crap sandwich), ObamaCare (trillion dollar side of fries), xx % growth in federal spending (straight bourbon), xx% growth in national debt (straight scotch), and xx% growth in federal regulations (six pack of beer) – Barry gave us nothing but Keynesian leftovers to counter the hangover of the worst-economic-recovery-ehah caused by his Keynesian bacchanalia. It will be as unsatisfying to the national J-O-B-S economy as the “Breakfast of Champions,” defined by this post title, is to the human constitution.

He called it the “American Jobs Act.” It will turn out to be anything but. Its’ recipe consists of equal parts Big Labor payoff and sophomoric political gamesmanship. The price tag - Four Hundred BILLION Dollars more of Keynesian nonsense – is the Big Labor Payoff. The optics and stage handling is the political gamesmanship – typically played too smart by half on the part of the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.

Fairly predictive, if I don’t say so myself. Note to self - I will need to emphasize the sophomoric political gamesmanship angle more in the proper post.

Bottom Line: If you pay attention to American politics … mark tonight as the “beginning of the end” for the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. If you don’t pay attention to American politics…start, it gets really (and I mean really) interesting now.  You will have a different POTUS come January 2013, that much is certain.  How we get there is going to be the "interesting" part.

Jack Wiley Dithers Exclusive: Heads Exploding Across DC

Our cracker-jack investigative journalism team has begun an investigation into a mysterious outbreak of exploding heads in the District of Columbia.

On August 10, witnesses saw a burly man wearing a purple “SEIU” tee shirt wander out of AFL-CIO headquarters and into traffic on 16th Street, NW. Just before he was struck by a Smart Car traveling at a high rate of speed, his head exploded. The Smart Car was totaled. The driver escaped with only a few broken bones.

An attractive young lady strolling through the Botanical Gardens on August 12 caused quite a stir amongst the nearby tourists, when her head exploded all over one of the glass walls. This young lady has been identified as a lobbyist for the Planned Parenthood organization. She had just left a meeting at Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) headquarters.

An unidentified headless body, wearing a hand tailored Brooks Brothers suit with a “Sí, se puede” button on the left lapel, was found on G street, near 18th street, just a couple of blocks from the White House, early in the morning hours of Sunday, August 14.

During the evening commute of August 15 there was a multi-car pile-up on Southbound I-95 just outside the city in Lorton, VA. One of our investigators has learned the lead car in this pile-up was a Prius with an Obama 2012 sticker on its bumper, and the driver was found to be headless.

Late in the evening of August 18, the headless body of a young female professional was found at S. Capitol Street and L Street, SW. Police initially assumed they were dealing with a flash mob assault incident (Navy Yard neighborhood, ‘nuff said). The investigation remains open with no real leads except an unused Washington Nationals ticket for that evening’s game and a Democrat National Committee (DNC) identification badge found in the young lady’s purse.

The downtown lunch hour on August 22 was punctuated by the explosion of a head belonging to a man wearing an off-the rack Macy’s suit, while he was in a coffee shop on 15th and M streets, NW. Patrons were forced to pick up their laptops and trudge to one of the six other coffee shops with wi-fi service on an adjacent block. The man whose head exploded has since been identified as a blog editor on the Washington Post payroll.

The evening commute of August 24 was marred by the exploding head of a high level State Department official assigned to Hillary Clinton’s staff. He was making his way up the broken escalator at the Metro Red Line’s Tenleytown station.

On August 26, a man later identified as a staffer for Senator Schumer (D-NY) shocked witnesses by wandering into the Reflecting Pool at high noon, just before his head exploded. The pool had to be drained and scrubbed afterward.

At approximately 10 am on August 30, a man created a Hazmat emergency when his head exploded all over the pastries in the Au-Bon-Pain store located on the corner of Vermont Avenue and L Street, NW. This man has been identified as an Obama political appointee assigned to DHS in a nearby building.


I sensed there was a pattern connecting these supposedly unrelated incidents, but couldn’t quite put my finger on the common thread connecting them. So last evening I paid a visit to the most learned man I know in order to discuss this matter.

I explored this matter with my host – Francis Charles Hamilton, Doctor of Pontification. During the course of the erudite conversation we enjoyed my host’s dry gin and tonic water – sometimes even mixed together in the same tumbler.

I had come to the right place. Dr. Hamilton has had prior experience with the common cause of these incidents. He identified the malady as Sudden Onset Cognitive Dissonance Syndrome (SOCDS). SOCDS strikes committed political ideologues when real world events rapidly contradict all of the assumptions and conclusions of their ideology. Most susceptible to SOCDS are ideologues that have constructed their entire identity around, and poured all of their hopes into, the ideology. When the ideology collapses, the victim has nothing left to anchor them to reality. Dr. Hamilton was renting a Moscow apartment during the period 1988 – 1990, strictly for classified business, and was therefore privileged to be a witness to the last recorded widespread outbreak of SOCDS.

When stricken by SOCDS, the victim quickly spirals into a trap of the victim’s own lifelong making. The victim attempts to rationalize the onrushing wave of real world events contradicting the ideology using only the rigid assumptions, conclusions, and memes provided to them by their ideology. The maze of contradictions thereby produced within the brain that has been wired by a life exclusively devoted to the ideology generates something akin to the venerable Hollywood device of a computerized robot melting down on a logical fallacy. Such as in this Star Trek episode or this South Park clip.

In the spirit of public service, our cracker-jack investigative journalism team has initiated a campaign to elevate the readiness posture for FEMA and several local emergency response agencies as we approach the 2012 election cycle.

Update 9/4

Still breaking …

The mid morning peace of September 1 was disturbed by a young lady riding one of those ‘Wicked Witch of the West’ bicycles supplied by the DC Bikeshare program. While riding along Woodley Road, NW, the young lady’s head was launched onto the Hurricane Irene earthquake damaged parapet of the National Cathedral. She was wearing a tee-shirt with the slogan “Green is Sexy.”

Treasured works of art were forever lost on September 2, when a man identified as a staffer to the Council of Economic Advisors was strolling through the National Museum of Women in the Arts. He succumbed to the final stages of SOCDS while enjoying the artistic treasures assembled before him.

Update 9/6/2011

And the outbreak continues ...

Organic food lovers on Capitol Hill were sent into a panic this morning when a the head of a Politico reporter exploded all over the fresh produce offered by the Eastern Market.  Several organic egg aficianados were forced to compromise their principles - by consuming for breakfast eggs from a local super market that may have been dropped by hens fed fish oil.  The horror!
