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).

Newton's Three Laws (Part 23)

A three part movement in the series soon to be known far and wide as the ‘Newtonian Predictive Model for Politics.’

Part 1: #OccupyFAIL

Lest we forget, one of the Left’s most decorated community agitators – Van Jones – warned us October 2011 would be something to remember.

Well, Mr. Jones apparently meant Team Leftie had a master plan in the works to mobilize recycled hippies and community organized zombies into tiny illegal encampments across the nation, under the banner #OccupyWhatever, or something.

Well, Halloween is fittingly just around the corner, and it’s now official: October 2011 has been something to rememebr.  But not in the way Mr. Jones intended. You can re-designate #OccupyWhatever as #OccupyFAIL. The recycled hippies and community organized zombies attracted to these illegal and unsanitary encampments have not impressed the civil society. The so-called ‘99 percenters’ have not prevented the civil society from moving along quite nicely with normal business, despite the tragic-comic presence here and there of their stone-age encampments.

And of course these encampments are predictably following the arc of human nature that goes from aimless, to restless, to criminal. The examples are coming in from places as far ranging as Boston, Dallas, and , yes, ground zero of Mr. Jones' revolution at WallStreet, Manhattan, New York, York.

The civil society has taken notice and is beginning to lose its’ patience. Restoration of law and order has begun in Oakland, Portland, and Atlanta, for example.

Memo to Mayor Bloomberg in New York, as well as whomever the hell has jurisdiction in DC: The longer you wait, the greater the health hazard to Police when the clearing operation are finally inevitable. It will be demanded by your constituents – that is, the people walking past these illegal encampments (holding their noses of course) to work, produce wealth, and pay taxes. Lest you forget, the taxes that fund your gub’ment.

I’ve already sent the memo to #occupydc, to prepare them for the inevitable. Based on what I’ve seen up close and personal, my advice here is as pearls are to swine.

Part 2: We Can’t Wait … To Throw More Public Money Down the Keynesian Rat Hole

And, of course, true to form – The Empty Suit That Seeks 2012 Re-election has hitched his wagon to this aimless, restless, and ultimately criminal rabble.

GLWT, Barry – you own it now! That smell you smell is your peeps. ROTFLMAO!

But, let’s give him credit for owning it through and through. The Empty Suit That Occasionally Occupies the Oval Office is traveling the country in campaign mode assenting to #OccupyFAIL demands.

With the new empty slogan “We Can’t Wait” – which roughly translated means “we have no qualms about abusing the powers of the executive branch and ignoring the constitution” - Barry is promising one redistributive giveaway after another to his so-called “base” – which can increasingly be identified as the national collection of whiny, selfish, entitled slackers.

Barry is promising a new bailout to keep the housing bubble pumped up. This is the same redistributive policy madness that created the very problem it assuredly will not solve. The Housing bubble was created by the meddling gub’mental arc that started with the Community Reinvestment Act, ran through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and Barney Frank’s committee chairmanship. Which was then aggravated and prolonged by the TARP scam and various other Obama admin re-financing programs like HARP, HAMP, and now whatever they are calling this new bundle of the same old sh*t. As the following chart demonstrates, these programs have only made things worse – as redistributive Keynesian nonsense always does. Whether Barry realizes the silly futility of the policy or not is beside point – for him. He has calculated, as the empty suited demagogue will, that there are votes to be bought with this cash giveaway.

Barry is also promising another new bailout to promote delinquency among over-educated pseudo-intellectuals. Barry’s motivation is the same here – the demagogue’s naked interest in bought votes. But LAS believes this particular gambit will backfire on Barry. LAS believes there are more votes to be lost (for Barry) from hard working blue collar Americans who rightfully won’t be able to fathom why anyone lucky enough to gain a college education should be allowed to go scot free on legal loan obligations – bailed out by taxpayers who may have never seen the inside of a college or university. This numb-nuts I’ve rolled into the post from my ‘Snark U.’ roll is the contemptible poster child.

Hey Dummy, Didn't You Do the Math Before Taking Out the Loan?

Hey, it’s tough for the class warrior to decide who to pit against whom. LAS predicts Barry will soon want a mulligan on this one.

Part 3: Report on the All Black Guy Running For President

Yes, we are talking about the candidacy of the man who will be the first all-black (both parents!) President in American history, should his candidacy come to a successful conclusion.

Astute readers of this blog have noticed two things for sure.

(1) I have mostly avoided getting into the thick of the GOP primary debate. This is because I’m prepared to vote for a #2 pencil over The Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.

(2) I do have a sweet spot for Herman Cain. This is because I once had the privilege of working for him, and to this day he is far and away the best executive I’ve ever personally known.

And it seems the rest of America is beginning to like what it sees in Mr. Cain, as well. Improbably, despite running an unorthodox campaign, the Cain Train is roaring down the tracks as GOP primary poll leader.

Now, astute readers of this blog have surely noticed something else. LibertyAtStake licks no one’s boots. As such, I must chastise Mr. Cain for a very confusing policy message on the abortion issue. I, LibertyAtStake, shall now inform him how he needs to package his position on this matter – which coincidentally, is also mine.

“As a matter of personal morality, I am pro-life. Life begins at conception, period. As a matter of public policy, I am constitutionalist. The federal government has no place, pro or con, in matters of morality, period.”

Memo to social conservatives … this position requires the over -turn of Roe v Wade and de-funding of all federal support to abortion. What else do you want? If you lack faith in your ability to convince the civil society your moral position is good and necessary, without the blunt force of federal mandates, then you are doing ‘conservative’ all wrong.

Oh, did I mention I have bumper stickers (and other cool stuff) for sale?  Click the pic ...


You need a scorecard to know who the players are ...

Updates 10/29/2011

LAS memo to Herman Cain ... You've got the name recognition, now you need to use the November debate run to get over this impression. Regarding your campaign, November 2011 is for all the marbles. Come out of November with the 'policy weakling' charge defused, and it's clear sailing from there. Be prepared for the attacks and 'gotcha' questions.

Daily Caller and Heritage Foundation are both in agreement with LAS that the student loan cash giveaway will backfire on Barry politically.

The original post was supposed to be a four part movement.  The fourth part was to be We Can't Wait ... To Cede the Mideast To the Islamists - lampooning Barry and Hillary's comically ad-hoc interventionist foreign policy during the so-called 'Arab Spring.'  But I ran ("I ran" - get it?) out of time and energy.  The Daily Caller nicely covers that angle here.

Update 10/31/2011

Some scholarly research into the at least 17 year old root cause of what is vexing the #OccupyFAIL mob. Hint: It ain’t “Wall Street.”

And, yeah, I'll get to the Left's scurrilous attack on Herman Cain in due time.  But I think I’ll wait until it’s even obvious to Karl Rove it is redounding to Cain’s benefit.  It should only be a couple of days for the poll evidence to start rolling in.

Update 11/02/2011

LAS expects this Daily Caller report will prove to be the pivot point in the 'Great GOP/NRA Kinda Sorta Sex - Even Though There Wasn't Actually Any Sex - Scandal'

The New Journolisters: Spinning the Unspinnable Edition

(AP) – Jack Wiley Dithers reporting.

When last we checked in on the New Journolisters, they were engaged in an erudite live analysis on election night 2010, courtesy of a chat room service hosted by National Public Radio (NPR). Shortly after our coverage, the NPR hosted chat room was shut down, and we lost track of the New Journolisters.

Recently, however, the New Journolisters and our cracker-jack investigative journalism team stumbled into one another again. It seems the New Journolisters are chatting it up again – on a server belonging to Obama For America (OFA). What they didn’t know is we have placed an entry level IT geek on the OFA staff, who is willing to do our bidding for a limitless supply of free Xbox games.

Herewith is a recent discussion thread.


Ezra Klein: A principled conservative black man is now the GOP primary front runner. This could be an absolute disaster.

Joe Klein: If we lose the black community our only captive constituencies will be ditzy pseudo-socialites, overeducated pseudo-intellectuals, and illegals. Ideas?

Spencer Ackerman: Smash him through a plate glass window!

David Wiegel: Lynch the teabagging race traitor!

 Jeffrey Toobin: Come on, guys, this is serious. Cain has a real tax reform plan. With details we can attack. A real tactical mistake on his part. Let’s get to work.

Jonathan Cohn: Let’s mock the 9-9-9 as 6-6-6. That should get under the skin of the religious right.

Paul Krugman: I ran some calculations and 6-6-6 is actually a lower effective tax rate than 9-9-9. This line of attack might backfire because it could become popular with the public.

David Brooks: I looked up his educational credentials on the Internet. Nothing from the Ivy League – we need to tar him as not belonging to the educated class.

Eugene Robinson: No, better to attack him as not really black.

Maureen Dowd: That might backfire too. Unlike Obama, both of Cain’s parents are really black.

Joe Klein: I think we’re stuck on this one, let’s move on to something else and come back to this later.

Ezra Klein: Good idea fake dad (/sarc). What can we do to pump up OccupyWallStreet?

Spencer Ackerman: We should arrange to have an occupier jump through a plate glass window, and blame the cops.

David Wiegel: No, blame a teabagger! Sarah Palin!

Jeffrey Toobin: Has anybody actually gone down there and talked to somebody?

Maureen Dowd: Ick!

Eugene Robinson: Too many white people. It scares me.

David Brooks: I haven’t seen a single photo of anybody with a decent pants crease. No way I’m talking to anybody that looks like that.

Edward T. Hall III: Help us!

Joe Klein: We need to move on, folks.

Ezra Klein: How do we help defuse the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal?

Spencer Ackerman: Smash Darrell Issa through a plate glass window!

David Wiegel: Claim we can trace all the guns to Sarah Palin's church!

Eugene Robinson: Spin Issa as a racist for investigating Eric Holder.

Jonathan Cohn: Spin Issa as homophobic for not investigating Barney Frank.

Maureen Dowd: Spin Issa as misogynistic for not investigating Nancy Pelosi.

David Brooks: I found out from the Internet that Issa dropped out of high school. Let’s take the educated class angle.

Paul Krugman: Easy! It was just stimulus for Mexico. It would have worked if we had only spent more!

Mr. Soros: Damn it! I’m shutting this thing down right now!

BREAKING: LibertyAtStake Opens Online Store

(AP ) - Jack Wiley Dithers Reporting.

Our cracker-jack investigative journalism team learned today the conservative blogger known as LibertyAtStake has opened an online store to peddle cheap merchandise for profit. One of our investigators was moonlighting as a grounds keeper at the Cameron Run Regional Park miniature golf course in Alexandria, VA – when he overheard LAS say to his son “soon we join the one percent, boy.” This investigator, obviously with a well-tuned ear, contacted me immediately via mobile telephonic device, and I quickly leapt at the opportunity. I contacted our mutual friend Francis Charles Hamilton via landline (the anachronistic bastard), and I thusly discovered LAS’ whereabouts this week. Armed with this knowledge, I was able to arrange an interview with LAS.


[begin: interview]

JWD: So, why did you decide to monetize the blog?
LAS: What, do you think I’m doing this for my health? Do you think this is some kind of socialist utopia, or something?

JWD: Oh, I see you’re in a crappy mood tonight. Let’s just do the interview, OK?
LAS: Alright.

JWD: Why did you choose CafePress as the online store service?
LAS: Well, I test drove Zazzle and CafePress. It was a quick decision for me … quite simply, the CafePress user experience was a lot better. Either I was drunk test driving Zazzle, and sober test driving CafePress – or CafePress really is better. Either way, CafePress works for me.

JWD: What do you have on the online store?
LAS: A lot of cheap crap with my branding.

JWD: What the hell is wrong with you tonight?
LAS: Let’s just do the interview, OK?

JWD: Have you previously sought revenue with the blog project?
LAS: Well, quite awhile ago I installed a PayPal tip jar bleg. But none of my readers hit it. The tight bastards. So, I figured maybe some of them would part with a couple sheckles if they got a cheap tee-shirt out of the deal.

JWD: Do you have any complaints about CafePress? As if ..
LAS: Well, yeah! I filled in my shopkeeper bio - all complete and everything - LinkedIn, Facebook, Blogspot - you name it. I even clicked that sidebar inclusion checkbox thingee. Still can't see the bio in the online store. It's really pissing me off.

JWD: Uhhhh … Why is your blog so awesome?
LAS: Oh, I see you’ve finally gotten to the list of interview questions I faxed you. And look, I’m already late for my next appointment. You’ve wasted my time again, Dithers.

[end: interview]


Click here for LAS’ awesome new online store.

Just seen on the Daily Caller site.  LAS hopes (assumes) CafePress's intentions are pure.

Newton's Three Laws (Part 22)

LAS is going all abstract on this one. Because as my A.D.D. generation 13 year old often tells me: words hurt the brain. And not only do I desire contemporaneous mass success amongst the A.D.D. generation with this project - but, more importantly, I want my kids to be able to understand at least part of the archive later in life.


Prologue to the Great Looney Left Occupation of October 2011...


More like "Release the flea-bitten mangy mutts" ...


Epilogue to the Great Looney Left Occupation of October 2011...

Well, actually it’s far from over at this point. Barry’s Bolshevik Brigade (hat tip Chris Plante) will not be discouraged by witnessing the utter failure of its first assault wave. Because remember: the Left never, ever, relinquishes political power willingly.

These lunatics still have cards in the deck yet un-played.

For example, they have not yet turned loose their union thugs on the streets. This is now practically inevitable – and those nut jobs are far more muscular and much more determined to create true mayhem. When Barry releases these berserkers there will be a serious turning point where the nation’s cops have to choose between law and order vs. union sympathies. I trust the cops will choose wisely.

Then there is the martial law play called for by the blueprint written by Cloward-Piven, Ayers, et. al. With an all volunteer citizen armed force this play stands zero chance of succeeding. Which will not necessarily prevent them from trying. Because remember: the Left never, ever, relinquishes political power willingly.


And they all think they are so damn smart. Like the creepy guy who parked outside my house yesterday afternoon with MD plates 7FX K68 apparently trying to break into my home wi-fi network. And the even creepier dude with VA plates FDP1PR doing the same this evening. GLWT, pathetic little script kiddies.

Update 10/12/11

OccupyLA trotted out the "Most Interesting Man In the World" (Dos Equis beer commercial reference) for a rousing socialist revolutionary rant.

Update 10/13/2011

You just had to know Camp Stinky on Wall Street would have connections to George Soros ...

Also ... it rained like hell in DC today, but I worked at home, so I have no first hand knowledge yet of the storm's effects on Camp Stinky at Freedom Plaza or Camp Stinky at McPherson Square.  I'll try to launch an investigation in my spare time tomorrow while in the office.

Update 10/14/2011

One final update to cap off the week before we move on to other topics ...
And the winner of the coveted award as OccupyWallStreet's telethon poster child ... drum roll please ... is this sad lunatic.


And here's a full bio on the poor, downtrodden fellow.


Off the Snark U. roll and into the archivable post.  Just for future historians.  Click the pic.


More occupation nuttiness for the historical record.
