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).

Jack Wiley Dithers Interviews LibertyAtStake On Coming Out As Gay

JWD: I knew it!

LAS: Don't be stupid. It's a gimmick to promote the blog.

JWD: Oh. So, how's that supposed to work?

LAS: Well, blog traffic is down ... revenue flat-lined at zero ...

JWD: Oh, yeah, I need to mention the last two paychecks bounced.

LAS: See what I mean? Anyway, I read how some washed up scrub named #JasonCollins revived his NBA career just by claiming to be gay, and the light bulb went on.

JWD: Oh, come on, this really takes the cake. How are you gonna pull this off? I mean, where's the evidence?

LAS: Who the hell needs evidence? This is a blog, dummy! I can make sh*t up! And all it takes is a couple of tweaks ... maybe an all-male Rule 5 page ... maybe I'll change the avatar to a picture of me in assless chaps ...

JWD: Are you sure people will really be able to tell the chaps are assless - you know ... the hair?

LAS: Good point. I probably should have that thing waxed. Think you can do it?

JWD: Ewww! I'll take a pass. Ask your wife.

LAS: No way - she already said waxing the uni-brow was all she could handle.

JWD: And, beside, aren't you worried about what she'll think?

LAS: Nah, at this point it's just one more thing for her to throw out in divorce court.

JWD: What about your kids?

LAS: They don't read the blog anyway.

JWD: You know, I'm not used to being the voice of reason around here ... but this doesn't seem like such a great idea to me.

LAS: Are you kidding? This is gold. A few minor adjustments - hey, here's one ... you and I can go dancing at that place on Dupont Circle and we can make sure pictures get leaked to the Washington Post ...

JWD: No way.

LAS: Come on, nobody will know it's you. You can wear one of those leather masks with the zipper.

JWD: I said no way, Jose!

LAS: Chicken. But, as I was saying ... a few minor adjustments ... then I announce I'm the first gay conservative blogger ... and bingo! I'm raking it in!

JWD: Except you're not. Ever hear of @GayPatriot?

{sounds of typing on Google machine}

LAS: Fahk! You're not going to print this, are you?

Update 5/3/13

The following excerpt is from the op-ed penned by Francis Charles Hamilton in this morning's Vast Right Wing Conspiracy National Newsletter.
LAS gay? Preposterous! All those years that kid mooched off my liquor cabinet - I must have dropped a hundred hints and he never once took the bait. And that cheap stunt calling in Dithers to do an interview is nothing more than theater of the absurd. Dithers might as well be a blind squirrel - he couldn't find his nuts if you drew him a map. Senator Graham is secure in his position as our high profile token.

On the Matter of Failing To Designate Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as an Enemy Combatant

Time to resurrect an old custom graphic from this blog project's archives.


This administration's specious domestic energy policy, apocryphal policies for dealing with Global Jihad's declaration of war on western civilization, and demagogic immigration policy are sure to produce exactly two things ... more "domestic" terrorist attacks by Jihadists, and more domestic dependence on an energy commodity friends of the Jihadists control. Ouch.

This Tsarnaev case is a case that is not going away (politically) any time soon. You could hardly invent a case more injurious to every assumption* this administration makes in its policy making. A Jihadi can slip through the legal immigration system to become a citizen on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 ... the very same day marking the sacking of the Benghazi Consulate, the biggest foreign policy disaster since the Iranian hostage crisis ... only to be treated by this administration like a common jay walker? Really? Better fodder for right wing rantin' (which is to say, republic savin' rhetoric) could not be handed to us by God himself. (herself?)


*Excepting purely economic assumptions. But the 1st Quarter 2013 GDP report is due out Friday ... virtually certain to demonstrate once again that Barry's economy is stuck on *sucks*. Due in no small part to this administration's specious domestic energy policy. See how all this stuff connects, kiddies?

Update 6:45 pm

Just finished watching the Britt Hume / Juan Williams throw down on Brett Bair's show. My reaction? Next time, if the Russians finger a Chechen, the FBI better pay attention. I'm pretty sure the Russians know from Chechens.

Drama-Queen-In-Chief Throws Hissy Fit

We got a close up view of the petulant demagogue that inhabits the Empty Suit, in yesterday's Rose Garden concession speech on gun control. Shamefully unpresidential, if I may say.

Memo to Barry: Never too late to learn how to negotiate in good faith ... looks like the shine is rubbing off the 'permanent campaign' apple.


(1) Chris Plante is delivering a barn burner of radio show this morning. One of his callers astutely pointed out Barack Hussein Obama showed more emotion in this Rose Garden hissy fit than he did describing the terrorist attack in Boston. Hmmmmmmmm.

(2) Speaking of the Boston attack ... it seems Team Leftie won't be getting to blame a TEA Party affiliated survivalist on my right wing blog roll. Somebody at the New York Post seems to have pretty good FBI contacts ...

(3) But, as a consolation prize, Team Leftie does get to finger an Elvis impersonator for mailing a deadly chemical to the President of the United States. As sure a sign of the decline of the republic as any. Remember when Nixon entertained the real Elvis in the Oval Office ... without incident?

Update 2:20 pm

More on President Emoticon's dramatic Rose Garden performance from The Virginian blog. Remember when Nixon - misguidedly - said "we're all Keynesians now"? I guess we're all Alinksyites now. (update 2:35 - the mockery part, not the lying part or the mob violence part. Leave those to Barry and His Corrupt Gang of Progressives.)

Update 2:20 pm

And TCOTS has an awesome graphic accompanying more reaction to Barry's foot stomping:

Update 4:20 pm

The New York Post FBI has cleared the two men pictured on its front page this morning. As a courtesy I've updated the photo, above.

Update 4/19/13

Dick Morris has as good a final word as any on the Rose Garden Hissy Fit.
The president was amazed that people did not read the plain language in the bill which bans using the background check information to amass a registry of gun owners. But he’s wrong. They read it. They just didn’t believe it.

Like they didn’t believe that the requirement that only fiscal bills could pass with a bare majority would stop Obama from passing the health care bill with only a majority.

Like they didn’t believe that the ban on recess appointments when Congress was not in recess would stop Obama from naming National Labor Relations Board members without Senate confirmation while the Senate was not in recess.

Like they didn’t believe that the president wouldn’t allocate to himself the executive authority to pass the DREAM Act after it was rejected by Congress.

Like they didn’t believe that the feds would try to name ministers in churches, and so forth and so on.

You can’t abuse the public’s trust as much as this president has and then cry when they don’t trust you.
Memo to Barry: If you want to get things done in this town, it takes something they didn't teach you in Community Agitator school. Leadership. Like the Reagan-O'Neill (mostly Reagan) Pennsylvania axis in the 80's, or the Clinton-Gingrich (mostly Gingrich) Pennsylvania Avenue axis of the 90's. Still not too late for you to read about how these guys actually met face-to-face and negotiated in good faith and in private.

Existential Question For The Day

Subtitle: Thank you, stater of the obvious.

If an Empty Suit gives a press conference adding no value whatsoever, was there a press conference at all?


“We will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice.”

Better get cracking, Barry. We're still waiting for answers and "justice" from the Benghazi terror attack.

Update 4/17/13

The always predictable Left is predictably out politicizing tragedy. Salon: ‘Let’s hope Boston Marathon bomber is a white American’

What they really mean is the Left hopes it's not a Jihadist because the Left still doesn't want to face the plain fact Radical Islam has declared war on western civilization.

Update #2 4/17/13

Ruh-Roh Lefties. I wonder what "dark skinned male" might be a euphemism for? Nice Deb with the scoop.

Update #3 4/17/13

Flopping Aces has a nice round up of the many examples of instant Leftist political exploitation of the crisis.

Watch how quickly the corrupt and biased left wing media drops the topic like a hot potato when the meaning of the euphemism "dark skinned male" is filled in.

Demotivational Gun Control Politics

The Progressive Ideologue In Chief is keen lately on pushing gun control. And not above stooping to the exploitation of cops and victims as political props, either.

Well, the cops have been polled, and they don't seem to be down with the progressive agenda. (This poll result, incidentally, makes the point I made in my footnote to my previous post - mass confiscation is an impossibility because the guys who would have to do the dirty work would never follow through. Not American law enforcement - and definitely not the all-citizen, all-volunteer, American armed forces.)

As for the grieving Newtown parents who have allowed themselves to be co-opted as lobbyists for the progressive agenda ... I guess it's a "no harm, no foul" situation. By which I mean ... if the reports are accurate that the only change in law from the Left's exploitation of their sad testimony is a relatively small expansion in background checks, I can't get all worked up about it. Because one armed good guy on premise at the school that day would likely have saved a large number of those innocent lives. Because Gun Free Zones Free Fire Zones For Criminals is the real problem.


This debate has also revealed yet another member of Congress to be a complete moron and contemptible elitist. It seems Diana DeGette, US Representative from Colorado, has been working feverishly on limiting 2nd Amendment rights, yet thinks high capacity magazines are as disposable as a smoking joint. This kind of abject ignorance on the subject matter on which someone works daily falls under the simple heading "dumb as a brick." She reminds me of a meeting management rule of thumb given to me by an old mentor: "Better to keep your mouth shut and let people assume you are a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt." But, then again, he wasn't mentoring me for Congress.

While pontificating know-it-alls demonstrating foolish ignorance is always good fodder here, I was prepared to ignore this example because, well ... is pontificating foolish know-it-all Democrat even worth noting as an exception anymore? But my assessment of worthiness was tipped over the line by this enraging bit of dismissive elitism reported by the linked article:
At the same forum, DeGette also mocked a senior citizen who said the state’s new gun laws would put him at a significant disadvantage in a firefight.

DeGette replied that he was lucky to live in Denver, where the police department could come to his aid “within minutes.”

“You’d probably be dead anyway if they had that kind of firepower,” DeGette continued.
Thus, she joins the pantheon of demotivational posters created here.

Update 4:30 pm

Something needs to be done about this provision in the pending legislation: "The proposal will allow a doctor to add a patient to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) without ever telling the patient he or she has been added."

As clear a violation of the constitutional right to due process as you will ever see. And, btw, an obvious stimulant for medical malpractice litigation. And since they wouldn't let us reform that when they shoved ObamaCare down our throats ...

Update 4/11/13

A random comment on the Political Brambles site, kind of summing up my position on today's DC clown car wreck. What, nobody could just close one loophole without making it a national crisis?

Amnesty Roulette

I will be brief in my use of this space today to opine on one the great issues of the day. My profit motive is going very unsatisfied here, and I'm in a lousy mood beside, so there. More importantly, though, the ridiculous clown car wreck that passes for governance in DC these days deserves naught but the most contemptuous brevity from any sentient citizen now counting himself or herself among the "governed."

We have "gangs of eight" negotiating the future of some 10-20 million illegal aliens, in near total secrecy, in the clown car formerly known as the "Greatest Deliberative Body On Earth" (The US Senate). I, LibertyAtStake, shall now say everything that needs to be said on the topic ...


Recognizing mass deportation is as practical a proposition as the gub'ment confiscating all of our guns (which is to say zero probability of success)1 ... this should be a fair and equitable proposal:

1) First and foremost, prove to me the border is secure. Stop the bleeding. Without this, all that follows is entirely futile. A nice first step would be a resumption of the Executive Branch counting the illegal border-crossers who get away, like former administrations did. Then we need a transparent process for annually certifying to the American people the border remains secure by reporting outputs (results) like the one just mentioned ... not inputs like billions of dollars wasted on useless bureaucracies grouped under an acronym like DHS. Nothing else should be on the table until this condition is met.

2) As for the illegals already here scratching out a living - offer them a legal worker status, but not immediate citizenship. That way, they get to step out of the "shadows" (as liberals so often describe the tax free cash economy they now inhabit), and the gub'ment gets it's "fair share" of revenue from their suddenly legalized labor. Add a token financial penalty, in recognition of the previous legacy of illegality.

3) "Path to citizenship" = go to the back of the legal line. Add a waiting period for full voting rights, in recognition of the previous legacy of illegality. What part of "illegal" in the first place does anyone still not get?

4) Reform the legal immigration bureaucracy. Less bureaucracy, more testing on the constitution and language proficiency.

Thus: (1) Those who supposedly came here to chase the American Dream for themselves and there heirs (as the genetic forebears of myself and millions of others did quite legally through the portal of Ellis Island, many without a dollar in their purse) will have a manageable way to do so, and (2) those who just came for the free gub'ment goodies will find it to be too much trouble and will choose self-deportation or be caught by an enforcement bureaucracy that suddenly has fewer marks to chase. I, LibertyAtStake, will welcome the former as possessing uniquely American DNA, and bid the latter farewell with an admonition to not let the door hit them in the a$$. I also believe toiling legally as well as cognizant of what the gub'ment confiscates from each paycheck for a few years will bring the natural conservative out of those who stay the course.


This is why my proposal, or anything remotely like it, won't get done:

(1) The Donkey Party's one and only goal is an instant infusion of tens of millions of undocumented Democrats to bus to the polls in November. So they can instantly become permanently installed clients of the progressive welfare nanny state.


The odds on where the clown car wreck lands are precisely as decipherable as a roulette wheel.

Fifty percent the Establishment GOP folds to the Donkey Party's one real aim, to appear to "get something done," and it's mass Amnesty for undocumented Democrats. It will also be the "no sh*t, no way back" end of the Republican Party's relevance, not to mention the uniquely exceptional American society itself. Call this the "land on 'red'" roulette outcome.

Fifty percent grass roots conservatives manage to inject a spine into the Establishment GOP on this one, and nothing gets done in this session. Don't worry, it won't be the end of the world - only 1383 days more to resist to the corrupt progressive reign of the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama ... leaving the hope of an actual leader then coming to the White House to get this done.



1 With or without broader registration, no progressive fascist government could round up enough Americans with badges willing to disarm all Americans - at least not as long this remains America. They are going to have move their schemes up to the UN level to have any hope on that one ... ummmm, wait, what's that I just read about a "UN Arms Trade Treaty"? Wonder what the "Greatest Deliberative Body On Earth" will say about that one when President Progressive Pants submits it for ratification?

Apparently, He Sucks at Basketball Too

From ...

2 for 22 - that's 9%. Well, at least he shot more than his unemployment rate.

Update 4/2/13

This citizen's humorous take on the Bricklayer-In-Chief made me smile.

Update 4/6/13

Correction: President Rim Lid shot above the official unemployment rate - which continues to "tick down" because so many people are leaving the work force altogether. If these dispirited souls were counted the "real" unemployment rate would be measured well above President Air Ball's 9% from the field. With the lowest workforce participation since Jimmy Carter's "malaise" economy of 1979, President Downgrade is fast on his way toward earning the label President Double Dip.

This one's for you Barack - it's The Monopoly Man Hives singing "Hate to Say I Told You So."
