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).

Let's Just Strap On the Crash Helmet, Dive Off the Cliff, And Get It Over With (It's What Cloward and Piven Would Want)

As of this moment, I'm with the editors of the Daily Caller on this "Fiscal Cliff" lunacy. It is once again clear the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama has no intention of exercising any leadership over complex budget negotiations, nor does he have any interest in discussing the out-of-control-spending side of the equation. The only thing he wants to discuss is tax rate hikes that do practically nothing to offset the growth in spending, but will undoubtedly harm a slow growth economy showing signs it is poised to stop growing altogether. (The official four week average for new jobless claims hovers around the universally recognized tipping point of 400,000. The trend in this number has showed no improvement for over a year, as a matter of fact).

The Daily Caller makes a decent argument in support of taking the shock treatment of the Fiscal Cliff. The shock will be felt both politically and economically. But very differently in each case. The shock to the rotting, decrepit, political infrastructure could lead to a public awakening that might further lead to meaningful reform of the system. The shock to the naturally resilient free market - still free enough despite the best efforts of the Empty Suit's administration to socialize every aspect of it - will be profound, but not fatal.

The Caller's conclusion hits the nail on the head.
No matter what happens in Congress next month, regardless of what Obama tells audiences as he stumps for his plan around the country, the basic equation won’t change: Entities that spend more than they take in eventually go under. That is true for businesses, and ultimately it is true for governments, too, because math is immutable.
In the long run, math is worth running on. Republicans don’t have a lot of good choices right now (politically). They might as well try it.

Ever on the leading edge of monitoring Leftist subterfuge, however, I will add another reason to the mix. Everything the Empty Suit has done in office with regard to spending, budgets, fiscal policy, entitlements, and taxes has convinced me he has been governing from the Cloward and Piven playbook all along. Put simply, he means to burn the village called 'capitalsim' to the ground in order to save it (by his lights). Once capitalism is reduced to a smoldering cinder, he will rebuild the village in the shining image of socialism (again, by his lights.)

Remember the Great Debt Ceiling Debacle of 2011? Speaker Boehner was on the verge of closing a so-called "Grand Bargain" with his caucus, when the Empty Suit scuttled the deal at the eleventh hour with ridiculously absurd new revenue demands. Then he proposed this very sequestration / fiscal cliff mouse trap, and the hapless GOP establishment leadership fell into it. Who would do that, a President with the nation's interest in mind, or a Saul Alinsky radical operating from the Cloward-Piven playbook?

Who would create a "new normal" with his first federal budget - trillion to trillion and a half dollar annual deficit - then ensure the persistence of this "new normal" by failing to perform his legal duty to pass a budget three years running? A President with a sense of duty, or a Saul Alinsky radical operating from the Cloward-Piven playbook?

Who would agree in December 2009 - when the GDP growth number was higher than it is today - that raising taxes is not something you do in a soft economy, yet dig in his heels on tax rate increases now? A President with consistent economic theories, or a Saul Alinsky radical doing what is politically expedient to further the Cloward-Piven agenda?

By the way, I'm not the only one who sees this connection. It might be time to start asking "Stupid or Treasonous?" again. The case is building.

Benghazi Truthing, November 27

Susan Rice met privately today with the usual Senator suspects, in an apparent effort to grease her appointment as Secretary of State. She apparently failed to convince them she was anything but a useful idiot or bald-faced liar on the Sunday show circuit.

Hat Tip to Nice Deb's "hot of the presses" blogging.

Looks like Team Barry's false narrative needs a little work. "Poor pitiful underprivileged black female Stanford and Oxford grad tricked by evil white male fall guy James Clapper into innocent show of gross stupidity" isn't flying. Barry might yet get that duel with Lindsey Graham he told us he wants in the last press conference. Or first press conference in 8 months - they really should have learned by now not to let Barry out without the teleprompter. What's the over/under on the next press conference now? I'd say at least 6 months.

Update 11/28/12

Memo to White House SpokesModel Jay (Mr. Shipman) Carney: The question is "who altered the talking points?" and the question remains unanswered. "The Intel Community" is not a "who." We need a name. You've tried Clapper. You've tried "FBI". You've tried "CIA" - twice. The lies aren't flying.

Update #2 11/28/12

Well, Jay, my boy, if the President is interested in finding out what happened in Benghazi - why doesn't he just describe to us what his entire administration was watching in real time.

Election 2012 Post-Mortem (For Dummies)

This is the second and final election 2012 analysis piece I shall post here. It is the follow up to my November 13 post “Election 2012 Post-Mortem (Executive Summary)” – from which the key takeaway was:
3. Looks like I got the answer to my May 8 post, “How Stupid *is* My Republic?”

4. Demographics are destiny, and Team (R) needs to figure out how to reach the great mass of clueless, uninformed, vulnerable, and mathematically challenged in the emerging demographics – without pandering to them by offering more free stuff paid for by somebody else. That would mean merely joining Team (D) as part of the problem, like the Bush/Hastert 2000-2006 RINO coalition did.
In this follow-up I shall explain how to accomplish this in terms so simple even the perpetual losers in the country club dining room establishment GOP will be able to understand.


First of all - and proving once again there is a great Kinks song for every situation – the GOP needs to figure out how to “Give the People What They Want.”

Where’s Dave in this video? And did Ray place the gluttons in Dave’s usual position, Stage Left, as some sort of snarky commentary on Dave’s location at the time the video was shot? Never mind, back to the point …

I don’t mean demagogically pandering with endless offers of free stuff paid for by somebody else! Pay attention! It’s about the messaging, not the goods, dummies!


Let’s take a moment to break down who these people are, shall we?

Well, for one thing, they will vote for Obama even though they oppose his actual policies. Really. The question is … why so stupid, Iron man? Maybe Iron Man doesn’t know a damn thing about who’s policies are whose, and only looks at surface of things. D’ya think?

Howard Stern found people who think Paul Ryan is black, and Obama’s running mate, and don’t even know Bin Laden is dead. Really. Anyone this information impoverished should be detained for their own safety.

Voting rights are available to people who know nothing of American history and traditions. Possibly because they have been educated by a public school system that has devolved into a Leftist indoctrination mill.

Voting rights are extended to people who will believe the most ridiculous assertions, possibly because they get all of their information from the corrupt and biased Leftist lamestream media.


So, how do you get through to these people, GOP? If 2012 proves anything, you need their votes to win a national election. And the Left’s grip on Hollywood, academe, media, and the public school room may be declining – but not fast enough.

I’ll give you a two part answer … pay attention closely … I’ll make it so simple even you perpetual losers in the country club dining room establishment GOP will understand.

Policy and Talking About Policy

Give it too ‘em straight – like a double shot of moonshine. They need to taste it. It’s the only way to break through the fog of confusion the Left has been laboring so hard to create in their minds via decades of media and culture domination. Call a liar out as a liar – and stop asserting he’s a ‘nice guy’ – when he and his minions lie about your record and tax returns. You know what I’m talking about, Mittens.

Call a Saul Alinsky radical out as a Saul Alinsky radical – like Newt did in his South Carolina victory speech - and stop pretending he’s a center left Democrat for the sake of decorum. This is the lesson you failed to learn from your South Carolina primary defeat, Mittens.

Stop listening to Karl Rove and the rest of the old establishment putz cabal pimping themselves out as “consultants”, and start listening to emerging new establishment leaders like Bill Whittle.

This is not “Give the People What They (Think) They Want”. It’s “Give Them What They Need, Whether They Like It or Not.” The Left has methodically removed their capacity for critical thinking, and strong counter-programming is required to pull them back to God’s gift of Reason that was given to us by the Age of Enlightenment.

Packaging the Messenger

This is where “Give the People What They Want” comes into play tactically. The slice of the Leftist cow pie this clueless electorate has been fed, that is least consequential to the election sales cycle, is auto-bias around race, class, and gender. So, let’s just go with it, in a quietly laser focused way for a couple of election cycles. It’s not like we don’t have a strong bench of articulate conservative candidates who are not white, not male, or not both. Mia Love, Allen West, Susana Martinez, Tim Scott, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz … I could go on and on. Here in Northern Virginia we have an activist who goes by “Tito the Builder” and gives a conservative stump speech that yields to no one. Let’s tap into superficial appearances for a couple of cycles - as the means to smashing its necessity.

Which brings me to advice for the 2016 Presidential nominee, a favorite parlor game for conservatives these days …

Please, not another Bush! Another country club dining room white man would be a sure loser. If the GOP learned anything from the futile Mittens campaign, it has to be this. Yes, Jeb, we all know you’re the smart one in the family … but timing is everything in life. And the timing for a Bush family dynasty has passed. Play your cards right and I bet President-elect Rubio will give you the prime cabinet post of your choosing.

Update 11/26/12

I found this Thanksgiving trip report from David Horowitz to be instructive regarding who the Democrats think their constituents are, if only tangential to my main argument.

Update 11/27/12

Memo to GOP: If you get my point, you will immediately make Kelly Ayotte lead SpokesSenator in the good fight to hold the administration accountable for Benghazi. Senator Ayotte is perfectly articulate and committed to getting to the bottom of the scandal ... and the kids won't hear Charlie Brown's teacher when she speaks (like they have been conditioned to do with all old white males). Screw seniority. Do you want to win, or not?

Jack Wiley Dithers Exclusive: Lindsey Graham Not Gay - But He *is* Racist and Misoyginistic!

(AP) – Jack Wiley Dithers Reporting 
“If You Can’t Scoop It, Make It Up.” 

After reading the Washington Post's dumbest editorial ever (and, believe me, that's a helluva an achievement), I considered writing a letter to the editor righteous comment board rant. The rant of course would have pointed out the blindingly obvious to the Post's logic challenged editorial board ... i.e it's entirely possible for a thinking human being to be opposed to the Susan Rice nomination on the grounds she showed herself to be either a useful idiot or bald-faced liar when she shamelessly peddled the Nakoula Basseley Nakoula video lie on five consecutive Sunday shows.

But, since WaPo's circulation is now restricted to a few thousand tipsy Georgetown socialites, plus the navel-gazing panty-waisted liberal DC press corps, I didn't waste my time.

Instead, I decided to have a little fun with it. I went to the National Press Club bar, where I am still credentialed (if universally regarded with suspicion), to drown my despondency at the state of today's corrupt and biased liberal lamestream media. About 30 minutes in, I put my little-known ventriloquist skills to work. I threw me voice to the west end of the room - "Republicans are racists!" I threw my voice to the east end of the room - "Republicans are misogynists!" Then recorded the predictable consequence.

I believe the liberal panty-waists claiming racism defeated those asserting misogyny ... but, then again, maybe it was a draw. Equal scores for idiocy.


Chuckling all the way, I made my way to the stately Capitol Hill townhouse owned by Francis Charles Hamilton, Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (VRWC) board member, and purveyor of a well-stocked open bar, to spread news of my exploits.


To my great dismay, Hamilton burst my bubble by telling me he had knowledge the hard core right wing zealouts John McCain and Lindsey Graham were in fact misogynistic racists. McCain had once confided to Hamilton that he (McCain) repeatedly required the black American POWs to go to the back of the line for gruel, when he was ranking POW at the Hanoi Hilton. He also told me the VRWC board knew the source of the rumors Graham is gay - he buys large quantities of women's clothes off the rack not to wear them, but to limit women's choices in the marketplace. Insidiously clever misogyny at work.


Hamilton even produced a recent memo McCain and Graham, stalwart right wing extremists that they are, had circulated among the VRWC board members. I simply must share this memo with the Post's editors so they can finally have a shred of evidence supporting their otherwise ridiculous assertions.


FROM: John McCain and Lindsey Graham, US Senators
TO: Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (VRWC) National Board
SUBJ: Susan Rice Nomination for Secretary of State
DATE: September 17, 2012

Gentlemen, thank God there are still no ladies on the board. This weekend we witnessed the spectacle of a potential nominee for Secretary of State claiming a poorly produced YouTube trailer for a low budget film practically no one on Planet Earth has ever seen was the root cause of four American deaths during an Islamist terror attack directed at the American Consulate and associated CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. This pathetically misinformed administration spokesperson is both black and female. She is the probable nominee to be the next nominee for Secretary of State. This nomination must be opposed due to her gender and race. I hope you will join us in this worthy cause, since we still can't seem to convince you general amnesty for illegal immigrants is a good idea.

Always Yours in Vast Right Wing Solidarity,

The Honorable John McCain, US Senator
The Honorable Lindsey Graham, US Senator

Benghazi Truthing, November 20

Not impressed with the Clapper head fake. But since he has offered up his own head - or, more to the point, since his dark masters at the White House, through their paid propaganda hacks at CBS, have offered up his head - drag him in for questioning and ask him where he got the video lie. If he claims it was original research, ask him how much time he usually spends on YouTube obsessing over videos with fewer than 200 views. Then require him to document the time wasted and dock him the equivalent pay.

Jack Wiley Dithers Exclusive: Twinkie Werkers To Receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

(AP) – Jack Wiley Dithers Reporting
“If You Can’t Scoop It, Make It Up.”

My crack investigative journalism team has discovered the First Lady of the United States intends to nominate the 18,000 Hostess employees who just lost their jobs for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Following is the first draft of the citation.


FROM: Office of FLOTUS
TO: The Courageous Twinkie Werkers Collective
SUBJ: Nomination For Presidential Medal of Freedom

Werkers of the Twinkie Collective, we the Ones We Have Been Waiting For salute you for standing up to the evil capitalist vampires who were formerly your employers at the Hostess Corporation. By demanding more for less, you don't just have nothing now - you have struck a blow for werker solidarity the world over. At the same time, you have eliminated a source of delicious but nutritionally empty snacks, which have been a symbol of American excess and greed the world over. And Wonder Bread, please - do you have any idea how many cancer causing preservatives were in a single slice? Well, it's a lot I bet. Thus, your courageous action has struck a blow for both food safety and bending the health care cost curve.

To recognize your bravery and solidarity with the world's werkers, you have been nominated for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. And don't worry about next month's bills either, we the Ones We Have Been Waiting For have your backs. Go to today to sign up for a minimum wage position chanting on street corners in support of re-electing Barack to his third term. Wait, there's more! Go to in the next 20 minutes and claim your coupon for free breakfast at IHOP.

IHOP Coupon Requirements
1. You must never speak of Benghazi again. And, no, Barack does not know who sent out Susan Rice to peddle the video lie!
2. To conform with Office of FLOTUS dietary standards, the coupon is capped at 200 IHOP calories.
3. To conform with Office of FLOTUS physical fitness standards, 30 jumping jacks in the IHOP parking lot is mandatory after coupon redemption.

Benghazi Truthing, November 16.

Petraeus no longer on board with the YouTube video lie.

The obvious answer to why he peddled the lie in the first place is he thought he could keep his job if he covered for his boss, the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. Assigning the personal attribute of loyalty to the Saul Alinsky radical was a grossly foolish miscalculation on the part of the General. For a so-called CIA chief it is tantamount to incompetence. But now that he seems to have done the right thing, the republic should let him fade into obscurity.

The obvious next move for Congress is to subpoena Susan Rice and grill her on who was the cutout that doctored her talking points. We may very well find out her motivation was a quid pro quo deal for the State Department job. I don't think she'll be getting it now.

Update 3:55 pm

"A cancer on the presidency." Where's John Dean when we really need him?

Update 11/18/12

Well, if it wasn't Langley, wasn't the "White House", and wasn't the "State Department", who was it? Or maybe somebody is lying through his teeth. Yeah, that's probably it - I'm going with the Liar-In-Chief himself. Think carefully about who you want to throw under the bus this time, Barry. They will be questioned.

Election 2012 Post-Mortem (Executive Summary)

Or: What the hell happened?

How did the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama get re-elected? An incumbent with a record that piss poor gets four more years to inflict his incompetence and malfeasance on the republic? With all the power of the now bloated and imperial federal executive branch behind him? WTF?

For a week now, the soul searching has been deep and convulsive on the side of Team (R). Good, it will serve them well in 2014 and beyond. Team (D) – not so much. In typically insipid fashion, Team (D) merely gloats over a victory that will prove pyrrhic. This victory simply gives Team (D) more time to own the failure of their policies. The economy is now officially f*cked, general war now virtually certain in the Mideast, and if the Empty Suit wants to continue blaming his “predecessor” he will need to be carrying around a mirror everywhere.


So, what the hell happened, anyway?

The executive summary has three four major points of observation:

1. Team (R) far and away has the best policies for dealing with America's most existential threats to internal stability and liberty – runaway size and scope of government, and especially the unsustainable growth of entitlement programs backed by nothing but IOUs from a national Treasury already $16 trillion in debt.

2. However, Team (D) far and away is better at mobilizing the clueless, uninformed, vulnerable, and mathematically challenged to support their sole policy program – free stuff for you, paid for by somebody else.

3. Looks like I got the answer to my May 8 post, “How Stupid *is* My Republic?”

4. Demographics are destiny, and Team (R) needs to figure out how to reach the great mass of clueless, uninformed, vulnerable, and mathematically challenged in the emerging demographics – without pandering to them by offering more free stuff paid for by somebody else. That would mean merely joining Team (D) as part of the problem, like the Bush/Hastert 2000-2006 RINO coalition did.

Further analysis to come later … I still have a living to scratch out in what remains of Barry’s dysconomy. As far as the upcoming analysis is concerned, for the basic feel of it … find the 2002 movie “Gangs of New York” and go straight to the scene where Tammany Hall rounds up all the drunks and hobos to vote Democrat on election day.

Update 2:15 pm

This is what we're up against. A 4000 vote swing at 1 am when an "election official" unilaterally decides to recount previously counted votes. Who do you think "election official" Gertrude Walker was rooting for?

Update 8:05 pm

The pessimistic side of me suspects the next four years will feel like this.

Update 11/17/12

This just in on the Allen West screw job. I guess now we might find out who "election official" Gertrude Walker was rooting for. After the recount she can take the stand in her own defense if she wants.

Update 11/18/12

Chaos reigns as the Allen West screw job continues to unfold. Hint: Chaos is the first clue Democrats are up to something.

Update 11/20/12

Looks like "election official" Gertrude Walker gets the outcome she unilaterally decided to facilitate.

Benghazi Truthing, November 12.

This sounds plausible.

It makes some sense.  In the heat of the fight on the ground it would make sense prisoners are taken and held wherever possible.  In the heat of an election season, it makes sense the Empty Suit would cover up this truth to avoid his "base" getting its panties all up in a wod.

Update 10:40 am

Femme Fatale may be performing a service to national security by exposing the duplicity of the foreign policy of the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. You go, girl!

If You Think the Economy Sucks Now …

… just wait until the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama exercises his “mandate” to force the “rich” to pay their “fair share” in higher taxes.

You see, folks, we are a mere 54 days away from total budgetary and economic implosion if the politicians you sent to DC this time around can't reach agreement on taxes before January 1st.  Lacking agreement, each and every one of you is set to pay higher taxes.  Not just Richie Rich.  Each and every one of you.  Oh, the corrupt and biased liberal media never told you that?  So Sorry.

But, of course, we all know it will be avoided because both sides of the "aisle" don't want the "blame" for raising your taxes (unless you are Richie Rich - the aisles are evenly split on that one.)   Negotiations have already begun in the nick of time.

The (R) side of the aisle wants to keep tax rates the same for everybody, and fix the incredibly broken tax code to raise revenue.  But that's a complicated argument.  It was too complicated to pitch to you in a ridiculously long and grueling campaign.  What chance do they have to successfully make the pitch to you in the next 54 days?  Answer: None. Zero. Nada.  And, beside, it's not only too complicated to sell to you in 54 days - it's too complicated for anyone to figure out in 54 days.

The (D) side of the aisle wants you to believe all will be well if only gub'ment just squeezes more out of Richie Rich.  They will win because you gave a "mandate" to the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.  And because it's simple to sell and simple to implement.

You may then be surprised to find out soaking Richie Richie mathematically does next to zero, nada, nothing to put the slightest scratch into the national debt.  It's just how the math works, folks - like trying to soak up the Atlantic Ocean with a beach towel.

You may then be further surprised to find out soaking Richie Rich has a lot to do with putting a dagger through the heart of the slowest economic "recovery" since the Great Depression.  Especially if the negotiations yield a definition of "Richie Rich" that sweeps up a lot of small businesses, still temporarily the people who provide the most jobs in this country (that is, until the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama finishes making gub'ment the largest employer).  Small businesses will almost certainly be hammered by the end state of the negotiations, because it's too complicated to figure out how to avoid in the next 54 days.

Not to mention the economy crushing regulations in the name of a pseudo-scientific hoax, that will be released now that  the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama is free and clear.


So - under the heading of "be careful what you ask for, you might get it" - I address the remainder of my comments to those of you who voted for the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama, making reference to the exit poll statistics provided by the Common Cents Blog.

If you are among the 55% of women who voted Obama, perhaps because you bought the totally manufactured "War on Women" bullshit narrative (talk about "shovel ready"), don't look over here for sympathy when it gets even harder to put food on your table.

If you are among the 60% of under 30's who voted Obama, and you have big career dreams - good luck with that.  If you you are in this demographic and have recently graduated college or soon will - get in line, kid.

If you are unemployed and any race whatsoever - looking for work ain't gonna get any easier.  Better look into that Food Stamp thing.  You illegals should look into the meaning of "self-deportation" - the number of families that can afford your help will be declining.

If you are earning under 50 grand annually, and were hoping for some of that good old American "upward mobility" - it will become more scarce.

If you are in the majority of Jews and Catholics who voted Obama - don't look over here for explanations when you find out trotting out Sandra Fluke as the symbol of ObamaCare mandated birth control even for religious institutions wasn't about "women" - it was about asserting the supremacy of the state over the church.  (Yes, I know, not "economic" - but it needs to be said in support of the First Amendment)

If you are among the 75% of voters who went for Obama because you said your top priority was "health care" - spare me your puzzlement when health care becomes even more expensive and less accessible.

All I can say is thank God for the 22nd Amendment.  At least the republic will only be dragged through two terms of this Keynesian, statist, nonsense - unlike under FDR, the power mad progressive who inspired the Amendment.

Update 11/9/12

And so it begins ...

Update 11/12/12

And awaaaaay we go!

Update #2 11/12/12

A policy of racial quotas will have the predictable impact: societal mediocracy by policy idiocracy, and an overall downward pressure on economic growth. Look up "Community Reinvestment Act" and "housing bubble" on your Google machines, kiddies.

In a Democracy, The People Get the Government They Deserve (Part 2)

There will be plenty of time to do the forensics on how this happened.  Decades even.  But here is what happened.

The American people, often cited as valuing bi-partisan cooperation, re-elected the man universally recognized as the most polarizing President ever.

The American people, often characterized as naturally conservative fiscally, re-elected the man who promised to cut the deficit in half, yet increased it by more than 6 trillion dollars.

The American people, often characterized as naturally liberal socially, re-elected the man who delivered on his promise to subsidize Sandra Fluke's $9 a month contraceptive bill.  OK, maybe that part does make some sense.

The American people, often held up as an industrious folk, re-elected the man with the worst economic record since the Great Depression.  These so-called "industrious" people doubled down on the aptly lampooned Food Stamp President.

The American people, often described as possessing high standards for duty and responsibility, re-elected a President with a well documented record of irresponsibility that includes not even bothering to pass a federal budget three years running.

The American people, often portrayed as valuing truth and transparency, re-elected the President responsible for the Fast and Furious scandal, and who has been dodging and weaving for sixty days about just what the hell happened in Benghazi to cause the first death of an American Ambassador since 1979.

The American people, often lionized as benevolent, voted in a majority for the candidate that asked for their vote for "revenge" over the candidate that asked for their vote "for love of country."

It has never been more true than today ... In a democracy, the people get the government they deserve.

Update 12:40 pm

Small correction in detail to the original post.  Candidate Empty Suit promised to cut the deficit in half.  President Empty Suit increased the debt by six trillion.  He accomplished this with trillion dollar to trillion dollar and a half deficits each year in office.  Maybe my kids will read this and think of me when they are paying the bill.

Update 11/8/2012

Yep, why not try running an unapologetic and articulate conservative next time?  For the first time since Reagan.  Memo to Establishment GOP: even the country club dining room should be able to see RINOs can't beat the small minded race / gender / class warfare the Democrats have honed down to a filthy edge.  You take care of the country club dining room and the grass roots conservative TEA Party patriots will cover everything else.  Deal?

Closing Arguments

A perfectly pithy end to the last four years of political madness inflicted upon the republic by the Left.

"You didn't build that" and Barry's Mob of Maladjusted Malcontents is here to take "revenge" on you for it. "Hope and Change" was "Envy and Lawlessnes" all along. Some of us already knew that.

Update 11/6/2012

Votin' Day!

Conservative cartoonist Eric Allie neatly captures the Alinskyite bait and switch that was perpetrated on the republic in 2008. Today is the day of the correction.

Dream Team Mittens

I think I've mentioned here R. Emmett Tyrell is probably my favorite all time conservative writer. Mr. Tyrell and I have long been in agreement the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama will be remembered as a "bad one term President." The founder of the American Spectator took the opportunity this week to say so again.

This morning I opened up my Google machine to find a certain Mr. Michael Barone now agrees with us. It looks like Mr. Barone finally read the memo I sent him on May 13, and re-sent on August 18.


Look kiddies, BHO's campaign has been a dead letter for some time. The corrupt and biased lamestream media has kept alive the fiction of a close race with flawed polling methodologies that have over sampled registered democrats, under sampled independents, and discounted the effect of voter enthusiasm. Plus you can always take a few percentages points off the Empty Suit's grade, in the translation between the answer to a pollster's phone call and a vote that really matters, due to the effect of white guilt. The immutable facts are everybody knows Barry's dysconomy sucks, the Benghazi cover-up puts Barry's failed foreign policy into sharp relief, and tens of millions of people watching the televised debates without the psychedelic distortion of lamestream media filters saw Mittens hand Barry his ass in open debate.


Therefore, I, LibertyAtStake, will move "forward" to planning the much needed transition to adult leadership in the executive branch of our federal government. Here is your Dream Team Mittens for the upcoming administration.

Stipulation #1: No "czars." A "czar" is a dead Russian despot, and has no place in our constitutional system.

State: Newt Gingrich in the top slot, and John Bolton #2. Now, I know Bolton is the top choice for most conservatives, but hear me out here. The Foggy Bottom that denied security to the Benghazi consulate needs some serious hands-on 24x7 adult leadership. Bolton is just the smart guy we need to keep at headquarters kicking bureau-weenie ass for the next four years, unencumbered by traveling figure-head duties. Newt is just the scary-looking figurehead we need travelling the world giving scary speeches to reverse the last four years of failed Apology Tour diplomacy.

Defense: Current Representative, and retired Lt. Colonel Allen West. He's just the man to lead the Pentagon's good old boys club of standard issue politically correct four star bureaucrats into a renewed age of American global leadership.

Justice: Mark levin. His orders will be to institute a department wide constitutional law competency test, and fire the high percentage of career department lawyers that will surely fail it.

CIA: Some career spook you and I never heard of, hopefully the one that has been inside Mohammed Morsi's head for a living recently.

Education: Michelle Rhee. Her orders will be to break the public teachers unions, while some intern in the background drafts the legislation to eliminate the failed department altogether.

Energy: Leave vacant as a symbolic political statement while some intern in the background drafts the legislation to eliminate the failed department altogether.

Interior: Sarah Palin. Drill, baby, drill!

Treasury: Larry Kudlow. Grow, baby, grow!

Commerce: The most inspirational business executive I, LAS, have ever had the privilege of being in the same room with - Herman Cain.

Labor: Li'l Richie Trumka - as a sop to bi-partisanship. Never return his phone calls and cut his budget in half off the top. Fire him the first time he says something controversial in public.

Agriculture: John McCain, as a lifetime achievement award, and because he's on record as against ethanol subsidies. Who the hell came up with the brilliant idea to transform a perfectly good food product into a lousy fuel product, anyway?

HHS: Somebody with both congressional and medical credentials, to rip out the regulatory roots of ObamaCare that have already been planted - repeal notwithstanding. Senators Tom Coburn and Rand Paul come to mind, but we'll need their votes in the Senate. When I plugged "physicians in congress" into my Google machine, this is the initial pool that came up. (First task for Mittens is to assign an intern to scratch off the Senate members, leaving only the House members to choose from.)
Signers include: U.S. Senators Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), John Barrasso, M.D. (R-WY), John Boozman (R-AR), O.D., Rand Paul (R-KY), M.D., House Representatives Phil Gingrey M.D. (GA-11), Phil Roe, M.D. (TN-1), Scott DesJarlais, M.D. (TN-4), Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-1), Diane Black (TN-6), Renee Ellmers (NC-2), John Fleming, M.D. (LA-4), Charles Boustany, M.D. (LA-7), Dan Benishek, M.D. (MI-1), Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-8), and Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-1).
HUD: Donald Trump. He knows how to build neighborhoods.

Transportation: Damned if I know. Maybe there's a NASCAR driver getting ready to retire who has conservative principles.

Veterans Affairs: Somebody willing to take the job that is personally connected to the Fort Hood "workplace violence" incident.

DHS: This agency should have never been cobbled together in the first place. Offer it to Rudy Giuliani to manage the break up. As for the constituent parts ...

FEMA: Giuliani. We already know he can walk and chew gum at the same time.

INS: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

ICE: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

TSA: Ask the Israelis for a recommendation, with orders to transform airport security to the Israeli "profiling" model ASAP.

Now get out there and vote like your republic depends on it.
