Pre 9/11 Viewpoint Again Fails America

Time and time again the Democrats want to return America to the 9/10 mindset. The Democrats are whining because they are being taken to task for their failures to keep America safe. Two brazen attacks on America in the last two months and the Democrats can not figure out why Americans are questioning their National Security policies. New York Representative Eric Massa whined on the Ed Schultz show that Former Vice President Cheney's comments were unwarranted and challenged Cheney to a debate.

The current administration has failed America and I welcome any debate with any Democrat. Average Americans could debate Mr. Massa and clean his clock. All that is required is basic knowledge of the events that have occurred over the last two months. First an Islamic terrorist of Arab descent went to work one morning and killed 13 soldiers and military members. Another 30 were wounded. Yet the liberals in the administration and the media could not bring themselves to condemn the attack as a terrorist attack. The administration, democrats, and liberal press couldn't bring themselves to admit that an Islamic terrorist attacked America on home soil for the first time since 9/11. Instead the liberals attempted to hide the facts out of fear of racial and ethnic profiling. This attack was caused by the democrats, liberals, and media attempting to be "Politically Correct". The press spun this attack as "an isolated incident". The act of a singular mad man out of touch with reality.

Next there was the attack on Christmas day. The democrat water boys of the liberal press refused to even identify the terrorist because of his Muslim name. Janet Napolitano claimed the "system worked" when in fact the system was a catastrophic failure. Obama for his part came out as said "this is an isolated incident", when in fact it was a well planned attack that would have had catastrophic results if not for the brave and heroic Americans on board the fateful flight. The problem isn't that America's airport security system failed in this case. No the problem was a case of intelligence agencies not talking to each other. Our intelligence communities and State department had the information required to place this terrorist on a no fly list. Instead the State department placed a note in his file to further investigate during a Visa renewal process at a later date.

Both the Ft. Hood incident and Panty bomber incident have commonality. First just because the democrats and Obama say these are "isolated cases" doesn't make that true. On the contrary, both of these incidents were planned by Muslim Cleric Anwar Awlaki. Second both individuals were of the Islamic faith. No matter how much the head in the sand liberal want to defend the dangerous religion it won't change that the religion itself is a failed institution. Third there are more terrorists on their way to America. The British have been tracking individuals from their country that are currently training in Yemen. The Panty bomber also made such a claim. Yet the water boys from the press want to claim both the Ft. Hood terrorist and the panty terrorist had psychological problems.

The Democrats have been busy blaming Bush for these debacles. Funny how Bush kept us safe with zero attacks on American Soil for 7 years. Obama has one in his first year. Obama and his meaningless "America Apologizes" speeches has done nothing except embolden our enemies. Iran is more boisterous than ever and has passed yet another Obama deadline. Terrorist have started attacking on American soil again. Obama is busy attempting to close our base in Cuba. The justice department is busy bringing the 9/11 mastermind to US soil for a criminal trial. The media and Obama are busy claiming "isolated incidences". Senator Chris Dodd is busy killing Aviation security in the name of earmarks for his pet projects. Janet Napolitano is busy claiming the system worked.

The problem with Democrats is that they have a pre 9/11 mindset. The Democrats believe everything is isolated and a few criminal trials under the American justice system will stop the attacks. The Democrats believe they can round up the planners and masterminds of individual attacks and that will stop the terrorists. Unfortunately the war is with a fanatical religion. At the core is a religion that preaches hatred, war, and death to non believers. The terrorists are not a small isolated group. The terrorists are a movement with millions of followers. I personally challenge Eric Massa to a debate. His 9/10 mindset would be easy to belittle and poke holes in. The Democrats appear weak on National security because they are weak. The Democrats have been a miserable failure when it comes to keeping America safe.

Ignoring the obvious about Obama

On Christmas day 2009, a Muslim terrorist, recruited, trained, and equipped by al Qaeda boards a flight in Amsterdam headed to Detroit, and attempts to murder almost 300 people by detonating an explosive in mid-air. Only dumb luck and quick action by passengers saved Northwaest flight 253 from going down in flames.

Yet Obama, in full denial mode and despite all evidence to the contrary, would have us believe that this was the act of an "isloated extremist". In his dreams. Can the President of the United States possibly be this ignorant? The answer is no, although his head of Homeland Security could be the poster child for dangerously ignorant human beings. Obama chooses to believe that his bowing, boot-licking, apologist foreign policy strategy will neutralize radical Muslims, make them like us and prevent terror attacks. Obviously this plan is not working, but Obama is unwilling to recognize that fact.

Not being George Bush got Obama the Nobel Peace Prize, not taking the terrorist threat seriously will only get Americans killed. The question here is not when will the president get serious about combating terrorism, but whether he is even capable of it. Obama still resides in some never-never land where America is not only the primary threat to world peace, but is also the root cause of all terrorist activities. Until this man embraces reality, Americans are in great danger indeed.

Despite Obama's long standing grudge against all things George Bush, the flight 253 incident, and the delayed/ridiculous reaction of his administration is all Obama. Janet Napolitano, Obama's choice to head Homeland Security, was laughable at best when stating that "the system worked". She recanted those idiotic words a day later when she was forced to admit that the system did not work. Damage control will most likely cost the deranged Napolitano her job.

Why does Barack Hussein Obama refuse to stand up and acknowledge the threat from radical Islam? We can no longer afford to ignore the obvious.

Its 3:00 a.m Where's Obama?

Yet another 3:00 am moment and Obama is no where to be found. Iran is in udder self destruct mode and the President refuses to get off the Golf course. The streets in Tehran are a river of blood. Protesters have taken to the streets and are being shoot down by the brutal Iranian regime. At least 15 people are dead including a Mousavi relative. Many rebelling Iranian citizens have been carted off to the notorious Evin prison. But the only thing that could possibly get our President off the golf course is a minor accident involving a minor child of a friend.

Obama was too busy over the weekend to respond to two major National Security crisis. First there was yet another failure in security as a terrorist threatened to set off an explosion to bring an aircraft down over Detroit. The terrorist has an American visa and the State Department had two opportunities to revoke the visa. The State Department failed to adhere to policy and failed to follow up on potentially damning information. Additionally, the planners of the attack were previous guests at Gitmo. Next came the mass protests in Iran. Iranians took the the streets to protest the brutal regime and were shot dead. Assassins took out an opposition leaders relative. The violent crackdown came on Ashura. Ashura is a holiday where violence is forbidden. Yet the brutal regime fired weapons into a crowd killing at least 15 protesters. Yet our President remains on the golf course presumably practicing for the celebrity challenge or the Bob Hope Classic.

One must wonder why Boy Wonder is sitting these crisis out. We must wonder what happened to the eloquent one that was going to bring "Hope and Change" around the world. Obama took the time to come off his beloved golf course when a family friend and an injured child. A few cuts requiring stitches and a bruised ego made Obama jump. Yet when National Security calls Obama sits the sidelines waiting for someone else to do the heavy lifting. Days passed before obama had anything to say about the attempted terrorist attack, and days have passed since the Iran protests began again. What took so long for Obama to come up with a weak and ineffective statement? The answer my friends is that Obama waited for Angela Merkel to shame him into a statement. Obama would have waited even longer if she had not first come out against the brutal regime. Obama would have waited until he knew which direction the revolt in Iran was going to move. If in a week it looked like the protesters may force the regime to make changes or perhaps even fall, Obama would have jumped on his horse and claimed victory against tyranny. However, if the regime cracked down and stamped out the revolt, then Obama could save face for his one on one dialog with the regime.

Obama has blown a historic opportunity. Obama could have come out months ago and supported the protests in Iran. Obama could have come out stronger when the protests began a few days ago. Obama could have brought support to the protesters and when the regime fell America would have looked upon as a great savior. Much like the Albanians look at us for bringing down tyranny in the Balkans. Instead Obama was weak and ineffective, ensuring that even should the protests bring down the regime, the new leaders will look upon the US with disgust for sitting the sidelines. Supporting the Protesters would not have changed one thing in the grand scheme had the regime managed to stay in power and stamp out the revolt. The current Iranian government has no intention of playing nice. They are not going to give into pressure and only desire delays to finish developing their nuclear dreams. Its 3:00 am and the President of the United States is AWOL.

The Administration Fails To Keep America Safe

Janet Napolitano spoke today and said the "system worked as it should have". The administration is out of touch and can't be taken seriously. The Department of Homeland Security says the terrorists are supposed to gain access to our planes. DHS says not only are the terrorists supposed to get on our planes but they are supposed to get on our planes with highly explosive material with the intent to bring down the plane. The Secretary of DHS should resign her position immediately.

This administration has failed in its most basic function. The government mission is to defend America from all enemies. In this case the Secretary of DHS is dismissing the seriousness of security flaws. The administration says there was not enough evidence to connect the dots. Yet the British denied the suspect a student visa because they believed the school he claimed to be attending was fake. The terrorist suspects own father called the US and told DHS officials of the concerns he had concerning the religious beliefs of his own son. The failure to act on information is what caused 9/11. The failure to act on information is what caused this terrorist act. The Secretary of DHS may believe her security measures worked as intended. However her short sighted belief only worked because the explosive material failed to detonate and because of brave Americans that were passengers on the aircraft.

The lack of concern shown by the President (who has yet to address the issue), and his administration is alarming. The administration response has been ineffective and seems to be more concerned with covering up their own failures then correcting the obvious flaws in their system. This administration is weak and would rather Americans accept that we will be attacked again and again, than to come out strong and denounce the failures of their National Security Strategy. This administration has failed to keep America safe and it will only get worse. Obama should be requiring Janet Napolitano's resignation, her security did not work as intended unless it was her intention to allow known terrorists on our planes with explosive material.

Obama Legacy: The Dependent Society

The American Socialist movement is in the house. Today will be remembered in history as the day America died. The Democrats in the federal government have voted against their constituents and passed a partisan bill aimed at destroying everything in America that made her the envy of the world. The Senate passed a bill that will soak the rich and redistribute their wealth on the lazy and illegal aliens. Never before in the History of the United States Senate has one party passed landmark legislation with no support from the minority party. Roosevelt passed landmark legislation in during the Great Depression with bi partisan support. Johnson and the Great society age passed civil rights and other landmark legislation in the 1960’s again with bi partisan support. However, Obama couldn’t muster any bi partisan support for his debacle in health care.

Today’s formality proves just how unprincipled our politicians have become. Today the mask has fallen from the face of the pathetic pawns in the media. Senator’s Nelson, Dodd, Lincoln, and others sold out their principles (if they ever had any) for ear marks and bribes. In the case of Nelson his constituents overwhelmingly disapprove (over 60%) of the Senate bill. Yet for $100 million dollars Nelson sold his vote over his own objections to abortion language and over rode the majority of his constituents. In the case of the pathetic pawns they are spinning this as a great hard fought victory. Yet it was not a great victory and it was only fought within the Democratic Party. From 1994 to 2006, every bill in Congress was passed “largely along partisan lines” according to the pathetic pawns. Now a bill that passed entirely along partisan lines is hailed as a major victory for the democrats.

This is no victory for America. The bill for this debacle will become due and payable in the future. The Democrats managed to push the benefits down the road until 2013 or 2014 but we have the “privilege” of paying for it almost immediately. The true costs associated with this bill will remain unknown until well after the next Presidential election. Yesterday the Congressional Budget Office recognized and admitted their estimate was wrong. The CBO stated the bill will cost us billions of dollars not covered. This is not budget neutral and the double accounting gimmicks will send our country into bankruptcy.

We already know that previous liberal pyramid schemes are bankrupting our country. Social Security is broke and will begin running in the red soon. The so called “lock box” in empty. As the baby boomers begin to retire ( the recession is causing the acceleration of these retirements) the drain on the social security empty chest will grow. There is also no money to pay our medicare commitments. Both Social Security and Medicare are set to begin running in the red over the next five years. Now the Democrats have decided to add another pyramid scheme with health care. Passing legislation with double accounting mechanisms and faulty logic is a disaster waiting to happen.

Don’t get me wrong, governmental safety nets should be in place to assist those that are less fortunate. There should be programs in place to teach those less fortunate to become productive members of society. America should ensure a level playing field where everyone has an opportunity to succeed. However, providing handouts to people and expecting nothing in return does nothing except promote laziness in society. We need reforms in health care. Being denied coverage for pre existing conditions isn’t the right thing to do. Government should help with that. Being denied coverage after the fact isn’t right either. Malpractice liability and tort reform is also required. However, we should not be mandating people purchase anything. The federal government has no business telling me I have to purchase health insurance. Now that the government believes they can tell me I have to purchase health insurance, what is to stop them from telling me I have purchase a car from either Chrysler or GM. For that matter what is to stop the government from forcing Americans to purchase anything the ruling elite find to fit their perfect utopian ideals? Everyone needs a windmill to generate their own electricity. Everyone needs to purchase solar panels. Everyone needs to purchase vegetarian meals.

Now that the government has proven they can pass bills taking away individuals rights and freedoms there is nothing left for the citizenry to do. America will no longer be the envy of the world. Instead it will become a failed Despotic State. The Socialists believe in the rights of the society first and foremost, damn individual freedom. America used to raise future generations to become independent thinkers. We have always been an inventive society led by innovative thinkers. The left is stealing American ingenuity and will relegate us to the trash bin of history. Like other great societies through history America will crumble. What was the great experiment in self determination will become the world’s greatest socialist failure. While the left hails “It takes a village to raise a child” I am of the belief it takes individual freedom to build the village. The new America the democrats intend for is a dependent society. A society where the individual depends on government to meet their every need. A society maintained by the ruling elite, a society doomed to failure, a dependent society with no incentive to progress.

Threading the Needle

This morning an announcement was made that Senator Ben Nelson sold his soul, his state, and the country for a few measly dollars. Instead of standing on principle or standing by the voters in Nebraska, Nelson decided that he would allow Senator Harry Reid thread the needle. The sun is now setting on America and the American dream.

Poll after poll shows America is against this particular bill. It is a bad bill where no one wins and America loses. The government and the democrats now own the impending bankruptcy of our country. We will become a a two class society like any other despotic form of government. We will have the ruling elite in charge of rationing our health care and we will have a working class sent to the death house as soon as they are no longer able to benefit the ruling class.

Americans all understand the need to fix what is wrong with the health care in our country. This should have been an honest debate with ideas from across the country. A debate of ideas that would have been a cross section of the country. Instead what we received was a partisan bill intended to rob America of its very soul. The partisan bill is unpopular even within the ruling party. Even the leaders of the Democratic Party have resigned themselves to the fact that they are only passing something to say they passed a bill. Even the Democratic party leadership knows this is a bad bill. Yet they will pass it forward for political reasons.

Our two party system has failed America. Our forefathers envisioned a country that represented the country. The two party system has robbed us of that representation. We have become a country where the ruling party makes the rules up as they go along and where the majority party passes ideological bills intended for the base of their parties. The sun is setting on the ideals that have made America great. When this debacle does finally pass America will go bankrupt. The costs will increase to the point where the government won't be able to print money fast enough to keep afloat. The promised reduction in costs will never be realized. Just look to history. Has any government program every come in under budget and on time. Where is the so called peace dividend? What happened to social security and Medicare and medicaid? All of these programs are set to start running in the red within the next decade. A government can only squeeze so much blood from the taxpayers before there is no more. Within a decade of this bill taking effect, America will have become a failed state.

Threading the needle will only result in a faster paced journey to destruction. America needs an internal debate that throws the two party system out with the red ink. The partisan bickering of grown men and women is sickening. Our politicians have stolen the country from its citizenry. This is all done for the next election and not for the good of the people. Good luck my fellow Americans, we are going to need all the luck we can get if we are to survive in the future. We need a new dawn in America; but we have received a death sentence. Our only chance of reprieve is to throw out the bums and start following the constitution of the United States.

Obama Is Bankrupt Not America

Barack Obama is the one that is bankrupt and not America. Obama is bankrupt of ideas and worse bankrupt morally. Obama has no shame, no humility, and no honor. A day after Obama claimed that a health care bill is required to stave off an American bankruptcy where is the American President? With the urgency suggested by his comments yesterday he should be in Washington forging the way ahead for health care reform. Perhaps Obama is traversing the country rallying support for the health care reform bill. No not Obama, he is not in America fighting for the health care bill he believes will stave off bankruptcy. Obama wails against inaction one day and travels off to Copenhagen on yet another boondoggle. Instead of fighting for America, Obama has decided it far more important to sell America out.

In light of the data manipulation global warming fanatics Obama should have called in his science advisor and demanded answers. Instead Obama shrugged off the cheating scientists and said "the science is settled". Obama had the perfect opportunity to stay home and work a bi-partisan solution to our health care issues. After all health care will bankrupt America, and global warming is a fraud. Instead Obama like any religious fanatic decided to attend the global warming summit to fore a deal based on fraudulent data.

Morally, this president should be leading a country on the brink of bankruptcy, instead he his pushing us closer to the edge. Obama's trillion dollar spending spree on anything based in liberal propaganda is what is responsible for bankrupting this country. Remember the stimulus package that was supposed to create and save 3.5 million jobs? Well over 5 million jobs have been lost or destroyed since that trillion dollar debacle. Now the Congress wants to spend even more in the name of jobs. So while our economy is destroying jobs Obama believes it prudent to go to another liberal left religious think tank to push for global warming funds. Instead of making a new dawn in America, Obama has decided to tap in the remaining nails into the American coffin. The spend happy Obama doesn't seem to understand he recorded record debt in his first year. And not just any record, no Obama shattered the previous record by at least 300 %. America is not bankrupt and we will again see morning in America. It is Obama that is bankrupt and devoid of humanity.

The Delusional Left

Late last year President Elect Obama implored the Congress to have a stimulus bill ready for his inauguration. The incoming Obama administration sold America that it was necessary for the creation or saving of jobs. The Congress went to work immediately and drafted a bill. The final bill went to the Presidents desk where it sat over a long weekend. On 17 FEB 09, the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act went into effect.

We were told at the time that the money was necessary to keep unemployment under 8%. Obama sold the wasteful spending as being an investment in "shovel ready" projects and would result in 3.5 million jobs being saved or created. We were told that Americans needed an extension on unemployment benefits. We were told that the banks required a bailout because they were to big to fail. We were told the auto industry required a bailout to save the industry and jobs. We were told it was all about "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs,". The bill of goods we were sold failed to produce anything more than anecdotal evidence of any jobs being saved or created. The truth is we have no idea what the net gain is for the hundreds of billions spent in the name of creating or saving jobs. Again the real question should be how many jobs did this stimulus destroy?

Now the Congress is busy creating another bill intended to create jobs. The liberal left is happily signing on to trickle up economics. Their delusional belief that laundering money through public means will stimulate the economy. Julianne Malveaux and Paul Krug need to explain just how their delusional plans work. Obama needs to explain why we should go even further in debt to create jobs when that was already supposed to have been done. The stimulus failure hasn't lived up to its billing. Now democrats believe taking even more money out of the private economy and running it through the bureaucratic laundering machine will create jobs that the private can't produce now. Please someone explain this logic. The last time we did something as absurd as this America had to enter into the second world war.

Liberals are hailing the Works Progress Administration as a success that pulled us from the Great Depression. The truth is that once we started the WPA we could not get out of spending on the program. Every time Roosevelt attempted to bring down deficits and take public dollars away from programs like the WPA the economy faltered. The great depression caused the second world war. Out of the second world war emerged the western economies. The liberal policies were a failure 80 years ago and they are a failure today.

What America truly requires is an investment in America. Cut taxes on businesses and cut spending by the government. Stop attempting to take over health care. Stop the cap and trade global warming hoax. We need to reduce spending not increase spending. As I said before deficit spending can provide a shot in the arm. However, the Liberal left is proposing perpetual deficit spending that that will cause America to crumble beneath liberal debt. More wasteful spending is not the answer. The liberals had a chance and squandered the opportunity. What makes anyone believe the liberal will do any better this time around? We are already rewarding people by extending unemployment benefits to almost two years. What benefit is there to search for work if the government keeps giving money away. Stop the redistribution of wealth and start making a difference. Cut spending and cut taxes and the economy will grow by leaps and bounds.

Obama's America

After almost a year as president, it has become painfully obvious that Obama's vision of America is radically different than anything we have ever experienced. In Obama's vision of America:

The government should control industry, banks, and health care

Enemy combatants should be mirandized upon capture in battle

Foreign terrorists are entitled to the same rights as American citizens

Our soldiers should be prosecuted when terrorists get a fat lip while resisting capture

Children should sing Obama's praise in school

Global warming is real despite all evidence to the contrary

Illegal aliens will not receive free health care, Obama's amnesty program will eliminate illegal aliens, thereby making them legal and eligible for taxpayer funded health care

Your hard earned money should be "redistributed" to those not willing to work

Rich people are bad (unless they're liberals)

American presidents should appear timid and weak by bowing to royalty

It's better to look cool than be a competent president

Israel should not defend itself, it caused all the problems in the middle east

The Constitution is just a piece of old paper

Joe Biden makes sense

Al Gore is a visionary, not an opportunistic huckster

The stimulus package worked

The Nobel Peace Prize really means something

Cap & Trade will help the US economy

Other nations will like us if you constantly apologize for America

ACORN is not a corrupt organization, and needs more money

Afghanistan will be OK once the Taliban are back in power

FOX News isn't a real news network

You can, and should, negotiate with terrorists

Somali pirates are misunderstood businessmen

Iran can be trusted

Gitmo is a bad place full of good people

Tim Geithner is a financial genius

Saddam wasn't such a bad guy

Jimmy Carter is a foreign policy genius

10% unemployment isn't all that bad, even when you predicted it would not go past 8

Alienate your allies, bow to your enemies

It's all Bush's fault

There are many, many more, but this ACORN loving, US bashing, celebutard pretender in chief has turned this country upside down in only one year. We have to ensure that 2010 will change the power balance and neuter Obama until he is voted out, or is rejected by his party, to run in 2012. It becomes more evident by the day that America elected the male version of Paris Hilton to the presidency. Maybe they can star in a reality show together, on Oprah's network of course.

The Breaking Inconvenient Truth

There is an inconvenient truth when it comes to the global warming hysteria. The title of Al Gore's little documentary was correct. The only problem is that other than the title the rest of the hyped up documentary was based on data manipulation; in other words lies. The whole premise of the movie neglected the real inconvenient truth and that is the Earth has been cooling over the last decade, and worse yet for the global warming terrorists instead of moving towards further warming we are actual moving closer to the next glacial maximum.

Over the course of the last week, material obtained through email traffic between the scientists employed at the East Anglia Climate Research Unit reveals global warming for what it is: Junk Science perpetuated by a fraud. What is apparent from the email exchanges is that the junk scientists manipulating data. Another issue that is painfully apparent i that the pathetic pawns in the media who have pushed their liberal one-sided narrow minded viewpoint on global warming are avoiding the junk scandal at all costs.

Prior to the President going to Copenhagen and prostituting our country to fraudulent hysteria a Congressional investigation is in order to find the facts concerning who knew what and when. There is evidence the Obama's science czar John Holdren is directly involved in the hoax. America must know how much Obama knows about the hoax and when he knew about the hoax. Holdren has been bullying people and pushed his blind faith and now we find the data has been manipulated. Obama plans on selling out our country in Copenhagen on religious blind faith rather than scientific evidence. That is the problem with the left, their religious type belief in junk science is much worse than the religious type beliefs of the main stream religions.

One might find that curious but when a believer in junk science pushes an agenda based on scientific evidence they will gain the attention of the unknowing. The outright lies the left has pushed to pursue their "religious type" beliefs is unconscionable. The left knew the true scientific evidence did not support their beliefs so instead of being a true scientist and finding out what may be happening the fanatics decided to manipulate the data and sing coombaya.

The left now is attacking the messenger. The left claims that no one should believe the whistleblowing hackers After all they obtained the evidence underhandedly. Sorry my left leaning friends but just because technically the goods were received underhandedly the facts don't change. The fact is that the junk scientists are a fraud. Similar to the disgraced Dan Rather, making up facts, manipulating data, or forging documents harms your case rather than help it. Dan Rather believed that because the premise of the story is true that the forged documents didn't matter. Now we have the fanatical left saying it doesn't matter that the data is false because their premise is true. That is simply ridiculous. Where is the proof? Isn't that the mantra of the left? Wasn't it Obama who said we as a country would turn to science? We should always advance science, but the junk science must be exposed for what it is and flushed out with the rest of the garbage.

The inconvenient truth is that the global warming hysteria is a a hoax and based in junk science. We as a country need to immediately stop providing funds to any organization involved in the hoax. This includes the UN and any other forum that took on blind faith the junk science they clutched.

The End of General Casey, not Diversity

All too often common sense is sacrificed on the altars of diversity. People ignore their better judgment to avoid the accusations that are the inevitable consequence of breaching PC etiquette. This certainly seems to be the case with Major Hasan, the army physician and Islamic jihadist who murdered thirteen people in Fort Hood Texas.

The warning signs were all too clear, he never attempted to hide his contempt for the United States and it's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was openly critical of the US and non-believers, and voiced his hatred on many occasions in front of his peers and superiors. Yet the complaints against him were ignored, his chain of command, fearful of disciplining a Muslim for actions that blatantly violated the military code of conduct, chose a coward's way out. They transferred an unstable and dangerous Major Hasan to Fort Hood, thereby dumping their problem on someone else. 

The problem didn't go away, it got worse. But the commander at Walter Reed must have been at least temporarily relieved. After all, an passed is an action taken right?
Hasan finally erupted at a soldier processing center in Fort Hood. The results of the army's dereliction of duty, thirteen dead and many more wounded.

In today's PC conscience military, even the accusations of religious or sexual harassment can end the career of a soldier.  Yet this maniac was allowed to continually voice his hatred for the country, the military, and non-muslims, with no adverse consequences from the officers sworn to protect this country.

And after this horrific tragedy, General Casey only worries that diversity might suffer in the military. Shouldn't he appalled that the Army chain of command failed so miserably in dealing with this murderer? That Hasan was enabled by his superiors to commit this act? Diversity will not suffer in the military. It is probably the most diverse atmosphere in the United States, and it will continue to be that way.

What has surely suffered is the confidence in Casey's ability to lead. He has demonstrated through his words that he does not grasp the criminal failure of  his commanders to prevent this tragedy. Commanders should not have to fear PC inspired repercussions when disciplining soldiers. They need to be confident the military will support them when taking actions that may go against established PC dogma. It is Casey's job to ensure that this happens, he failed.

Don't worry about diversity General Casey, worry about how you failed in your duty to lead. Then turn in your resignation.

A Second Bite of the Apple

Nancy Pelosi is contemplating another budget busting stimulus package. In Pelosi’s infinite wisdom she believes the American public longs for yet another failed stimulus wrapped in the guise of jobs creation. The $787 billion original package wasn’t wasteful enough for her. The Democrats simply did not receive enough pork for their constituents. Now she would love nothing more than a second bite of the apple. America has to step up and rebuke the spend thrift democrats. They had an opportunity to get the economy moving in the right direction and the democrats blew it.

The $787 billion dollars in wasteful spending was sold to the American public as a jobs creating or saving vehicle. The unemployment rate was supposed to stay under 8% if it was to be passed. At least 3.5 million jobs were supposed to be created or saved. Yet today there is only anecdotal evidence of any jobs being created or saved. In fact, most of the jobs being touted were saved, very few new jobs were created. I know the administration is touting only the gross projected jobs created or saved. My concern however is the number of net jobs created or saved by this wasteful spending. Even if there were concrete jobs created or saved of the magnitude the administration insists, this is but a gross number. The question that needs to be answered is how many jobs were destroyed or lost due the budget busting bill?

The government stole money from the future taxpayers to shove a stimulus package down our throats. In the process they took money out of the private industry and placed it in the hands of a bureaucratic government. The stimulus package was full of gimmicks that cost far more than the revealed price. The cash for clunkers program gave away money to push for more auto sales in the short term. This increase in sales will have lingering effects far into the future and cause inflationary pressures as the economy recovers. The shortage of vehicles caused by the destruction of real property will result in increased prices for the remaining real property. Additionally, beyond the inflationary costs that are sure to come what about the cost of the bureaucrats running the program in the first place. Was the red tape worth the cost? In all likelihood this gimmick will cost much more than the claimed price tag. The return on investment will be far less than any private industry could ever institute and stay in business.

The stimulus package robbed from the private investors. When the government takes money from the private arena and spends it as it sees fit it is future growth that is harmed. Investors will not continually invest when more of their hard earned money is taken from them. There is no reason to invest when the government does it for us. Of course the government is inefficient when it comes to pumping money into the economy. Government spending chokes off private investment and becomes the only way of getting dollars into a failing economy. Research the great depression and one finds that government spending robbed the private sector of much needed cash. Once the public sector became the fuel for the economy there was no exit strategy. With public dollars the 1930’s economy was artificially propped up, when the public dollars evaporated so did the economy. America did not emerge from the great depression because of the great deal, America emerged in spite of the great deal. Only an the second world war pulled the world from the great disaster.

Now the democrats are looking at taking even more money from future generations to cover up their last pork filled non stimulus package. Nancy Pelosi isn’t even willing to call her new gimmick a stimulus. Pelosi has resorted to calling her gimmick a jobs creation bill. Funny, how the last stimulus bill was hailed as a jobs creating bill for funding shovel ready projects but now a specific bill is required to address jobs. Why would an angry public trust the spend thrifts in Congress? This Congress has done nothing but spend our future away and has nothing to show for it. If Nancy wants a jobs bill why not find money that currently exists? The budget outline from the Obama administration set aside huge sums of future cash for a government run health care program and cap global warming junk science, yet we need even more deficit spending to create jobs that were already supposed to have been saved or created. A liberal columnist said last spring that deficit spending is not a bad thing. The reality is that government deficit spending in the short term when the economy is slow can prime the pump of growth. However, perpetual deficit spending is never a wide choice. All one has to do is research the private debt held by individuals. Bankruptcies rarely are the result of a one time deficit spending deal in time of need. Bankruptcies happen because of long term deficit spending where the individual finances crumble under the weight of the debt load. This is what is happening in States like California, it is only a matter of time before the National debt load will crush the American dream.

Obama Is Against Everything America Stands For

The Obama Administration is rapidly moving the country away from what makes America the envy of the world. The health care debate and Obama's own words shine a light on the Communist tendencies of his administration. Obama is hailed as being so smart, so cerebral, so nuanced, but the reality is Obama is a Communist intent on destroying America.

The health care debate is not a debate concerning improving health care in America. The debate is the difference between individual freedom and the rights of the community. Yesterday Obama himself said he believes the fines are about right for individuals refusing to buy into his health care scheme. Obama compared the mandatory purchase of health insurance to the mandatory purchase of car insurance. This comparison is not applicable. Obama is trying to say everyone must purchase healthcare for the good of society. Everyone must purchase insurance because the government demands it. There is no alternative just another unfunded mandate. The problem is that this unfunded mandate is not passed to the States but rather to the individuals. Car insurance does have an alternative. Car insurance is only mandatory if an individual registers a car. Car insurance is not mandatory to obtain a license to drive. Car insurance is not mandatory to purchase a car. No the only time car insurance is mandatory is when an individual desires to register and drive a car. Americans have a choice in this matter. However, no individual has an alternative choice to Obamacare. Just being born means health insurance is mandatory punishable by fines and jail.

Pelosi when questioned about the constitutionality of mandating health insurance brushed off the question. Pelosi alluded to the regulation of interstate commerce as her constitution power. The problem is this is not regulating interstate commerce. This is forcing the people to purchase a product. Instead of regulating interstate commerce and opening up States borders by allowing health insurance to be sold across state lines Pelosi mandated every America will purchase some form of health insurance. The mandate is a bridge too far. Certainly the Supreme Court will throw out the mandates.

There is no way the Supreme Court could uphold this mandate. By allowing the government to decide what we must purchase with our hard earned money is incomprehensible. The can of worms this would open is remarkable. No longer would America be free. No longer would America have choices. If the government can force us to have health insurance just because we breath oxygen then what would stop the government from forcing us to purchase a Chrysler or GM Product? The government now owns a majority share in both companies. If the government can force us to buy insurance why not mandate which cars we can purchase? When the government sees the effects of their trillion dollar deficits why not say "in the name of interstate commerce" every America must purchase a car from either Chrysler or GM. For that matter why not outlaw big screen TV's, mandate the purchase a horse and buggy instead of gas guzzling cars, mandate a vegetarian diet, mandate only "green" products may be purchased.

The health care debate as it stands is more about individual freedoms and the rights of the community than it is about actual health care reforms. The mandates would provide the government the right to regulate individual choices. Our founding fathers did not desire a government that controlled the lives of the governed. Our country was founded and government formed to provide individual freedoms. The founding fathers wanted a government that was controlled by the people.

Allowing this mandate to pass goes against everything America stands for. This little noticed mandate is just another precedent that will empower the government to control our lives. I have read the Constitution and it is filled with protection of the rights of the individuals. No where does the constitution give the right to the government to control our lives. In fact the constitution limits the power of government and empowers the individual. Communists like Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama believe in the rights of government, the rights of State, the rights of the Community, damn the individuals. Sorry but it doesn't take a village to raise a child. It only takes a parent willing to accept responsibility. Wake up America Obama is against everything our country was founded on.

It's the Religion Stupid

The Liberal left in this country must awaken and realize the Islamic religion is the problem. In the wake of the Ft. Hood massacre the left has gone to painstaking lengths to assure the American public that this was an individual that went of course and is not the act of a religious fanatic. Time Magazine reports (if that what you call pushing a one sided agenda), Nidal Malik Hasan may have been suffering from “secondary trauma”. The President said we should hold back on our judgments. Newsweek suggests the larger story is the damage done to other American Muslims. The main stream media was praying that the shooter was “white” or had a last name of Smith. The left attempts to bury the real issue. The real issue unfortunately is the Islamic religion.

All roads are leading towards the fact that the lone shooter was an Islamic terrorist. Hasan it seems attempted to contact Al Queda. Hasan praised the suicide bombers the Islamic terrorists have unleashed. Hasan attended the same mosque as the 9/11 terrorists. Hasan praised Allah before the shooting frenzy began. Yet in the face of the damning evidence the media and the liberals are diverting our attention.

The media would rather this not been another terrorist attack on American soil. The liberals and pathetic pawns in the media desire to continue attacking the “tea baggers” instead of facing head on a religion bent on destroying Western culture and civilization. Iran is busy proclaiming they would like to “wipe Israel from the face of the Earth”. Iran is also busy developing nuclear weapons while the Obama administration sticks its head even further into the ground. The Palestinians are busy testing missles with longer range to further penetrate and terrorize Israel. Now we have the radical Islamic Imam’s in our own country praising Hasan and attempting to make him a martyr for the Islamic Jihad cause.

The facts are rapidly coming in and they are not pretty. Any religion that preaches death and destruction of peace and tranquility is the problem. There is a reason the Imam’s are pushing the meme that the religion means “submission”. The Islamic religion is teaching submission means death to any non believer and only their religion means anything. A holy Jihad has been declared and the political correct left doesn’t see this as a problem. Their collective heads are in the sand. Chris Matthews is wrong when he says we may never know the role Islam played into the events of last week. What Matthews really means is the left may never want to know or admit what really happened. The Islamic religion is preaching violence and hatred and an end to the means.

Wake up America. We must recognize that the Islamic religion is a cult bent on destruction. The religion itself does not teach right from wrong but rather the pure violence that should be carried out in the name of religion. The mosque’s in this country have spawned American terrorists. The Mosques have carried out past terrorist attacks and are busy planning more. The mosques in this country have taught their flock to become terrorists and go into Somalia and Afghanistan to further the terror training. While the left sticks their head in the sand and says it was an individual, we must know that this is not an isolated case of an individual but rather part of a larger destruction of Western culture. Islam is a radical religion that prays on the weak and underprivileged. The religion itself brainwashes weak minds. There is no other way to explain suicide bombers. There is no other way to explain the cheering Islamic followers did in the streets and campuses in America after the events of 9/11. Ft. Hood is another example of a radical religion. American Intelligence knew months ago that Hasan had been trying to make contact with Al Queda. This administration sat its hands hoping and praying this was an isolated case. The facts are showing the dark evil that rests in the hearts of the true believers of Islam.

Democrats: No Lessons to be Learned

The Democrats are the majority in our government yet refuse to learn any lessons from the people that elected them to represent America's values. The Democrats ran on lower federal deficits. The Democrast ran against George Bush and the wounded Republican brand. The people believed America was on the wrong track and desired a change in government that would more represent the views of a nation. Immediately after the election the politicians did what politicians do, they quit listening to the people.

The first action undertaken by this Congress and was to send the nation further in debt. The people were sold a bills of goods. We were sold on a stimulus package that was necessary to save the nation. The stimulus was supposed to be about shovel ready jobs. The stimulus would keep unemployment under 8%. Instead what we got was a bill designed to reward the liberal constituency rather than the American people. The stimulus was tailored only to reward a small portion of the public. Much of the stimulus went for pet projects that did nothing to resolve an increasing jobless rate. The stimulus was a tax giveaway with no possibility of stimulating the economy. Most of the stimulus went towards extending unemployment benefits, first time home owners tax credits, and cash for clunkers. In reality none of these initiatives helped the economy in the long run. The extension of unemployment benefits focuses giving tax dollars to individuals but do nothing to find them employment. Rather than extend the benefits perhaps the government should have been focused on creating jobs. The Home buyers credit and cash for clunkers program did more damage in the long run than the programs fixed in the short term. Sure August showed huge increases in auto sales and fuels a 3.5% growth in GDP for the third quarter. However, now we have the after affects with increasing costs of purchasing used cars. Additionally, sales that would have kept the auto industry afloat were shifted into a month or two early. This program will cause high inflation when the economy does eventually recover on its own in spite of government meddling. The Home buyers credit just further eroded the value of our homes. In fact our homes are worth $8,000 less than they were with out the program. So instead of making wealth the government is stealing wealth.

After the stimulus, the democrats moved the economy off the radar and started focusing on the hostile takeover of health care. In August it was apparent Americans wanted health reform but not the trash the Democrats were pushing. The Obama gimmick to convene a joint session of Congress in SEP was a disaster. Obama with all of his lofty rhetoric could not persuade a skeptical public. Obama has an approval rating hovering around 50%. Obama on the issues is even worse. Republicans are actually leading on most of the top ten issues facing America.

Last Tuesday America had the opportunity to speak again at the ballot box. In the high visibility governor races in Virginia and New Jersey, the Democrats and Obama took one on the chin. Obama campaigned extensively for Corzine in New Jersey. Obama camped out in New Jersey the last couple f weeks prior to the election and couldn't keep a Democrat in office in a very dark Blue State. In Virginia it wasn't even close. In a State that has been trending purple, the Democrats could keep the race in the ball park and were swept from office in large numbers. However, the Democrats didn't blink an eye. The Democrats refuse to heed the warnings America sent.

Instead of focusing on the economy the Democrats would rather pursue an unpopular health care reform. Pelosi is forcing her caucus to make tough decisions and votes before she will allow them to assess the damage that happened on Tuesday. Instead of slowing down and getting the country on the right path the liberals are stepping on the gas running the country off the tracks. Pelosi won't even allow the people to see the bill as she promised. Pelosi is holding America hostage and shoving her liberal agenda down our throats.

The American public must stand up and take the country back. Pelosi knows this is the last chance for liberals to get their agenda through Congress. Pelosi knows once the government owns health care there is no turning back. There will be no avenue to get the government out of our lives. The liberal agenda will not change until America if fully bankrupted. Democrats don't want to heed the lessons of 2009 because they know to lose know and do what is right by the American people will disempower them. The Democrats know they may endanger their party but in the end America will have no choice but to embrace socialism as we go further and further towards becoming a bankrupt banana republic.

Election 2009: A Majority Decision

The off year elections of 2009 became a majority decision against the status quo. Incumbents and establishment candidates were humiliated, while the people took the reins of government into their own hands. This morning shock waves are being felt by Democrats and Republicans alike. Both National parties can take some solace in their victories. However, last night was a majority decision against the Washington insiders.

The pundits are busy pouring through the exit polls trying to find meaning behind the surprising results. There were four major races and all four had meaningful yet surprising results. Taken one at a time, the results should send a ripple of fear through both political parties. My hope is that the fear manifests itself into action. The two major political parties have stolen America from the people. The people are supposed to be listened to and respected. The establishment has for far too long preached an elitist view rather than represent the people they are to serve.

In CA-10, the establishment candidate won. However a closer look at the results and we find that perhaps winning isn’t everything. John Garamendi was the Lt. Governor and had universal name recognition while David Harmer was a relative unknown. Ellen Tauscher had been winning the district with 65% + of the vote. In the end Garamendi the establishment candidate won by just over 10% garnering 52% of the vote in a historic democratic district. Garamendi may have won and won by double digits but given that a relative unknown Republican could hold Garamendi to just 52% is impressive. This race is one of four showing the ruling elite that perhaps their strangle hold on power may be eroding.

In NY-23, Bill Owens eked out a 5% win. Again the Democrats can take solace in gaining a seat. However, the establishment took a beating. This time the establishment Republican candidate conceded three days prior to the election. Owens won but the race was between A Democrat and a third party candidate. Doug Hoffman ran on the Conservative party ticket, forced out a Republican three days before the election and kept the race within 5%. Hoffman was again a little unknown candidate and almost pulled out the victory. Owens by the way is a moderate Democrat so the Washington insiders should not be counting him as an automatic vote in the Democratic caucus.

In New Jersey, Chris Christie sent Jon Corzine packing. The democratic spin on the race is that Corzine was a poor candidate with high negatives. The spin is Christie should have cleaned Corzine’s clock. However, the facts show New Jersey is very blue State. It had been over a decade since a Republican won a statewide election. Christine Todd Whitman was the last Republican to win statewide and that was in 1997. Turnout among Democrats was lower than expected. Independents decided went towards Christie and the Republican base was energized. The two most important issues to voters yesterday was the economy and taxes. No longer is it permissible for the Democrats to blame Bush. Many voters understand the economy was in decline when the Democrats rode to victory last year. However, the time has come for the Democrats to take ownership of the economy and have solutions to resolve the underlying issues. The number two issue is taxes in general and specifically property taxes. The establishment elitists refuse to believe that Americans do not feel patriotic when paying exorbitant taxes. The people want their government to live within their means. Americans understand that taxes choke off the economy and limit growth potential. A State cannot lure businesses into the State if the tax rate consumes profits. A business will not lose money for the privilege of conducting business. The key to this race is the turnout of Republicans and the Independents who voted against the establishment.

The final important race of the evening was a slaughter. Bob McDonnell destroyed Creigh Deeds by 18 % of the vote. Virginia was a State that Barack Obama won going away. There is no way to spin this race as a positive for the Democrats. McDonnell won independents 2-1. Both Senators are Democrats. The Governor’s office had back to back Democrats. This race plain and simple was not close and there is nothing the elitists in our country can do to change that.

Sure partisans from both parties can claim victories. However, neither party won anything last night. The liberal pundits are correct there is a civil war going on but it is not within either party. Last night showed that the civil war is between the ruling elite and the average American. Americans do not embrace the positions of the two major parties. Republicans were thrown out in the last two elections. Democrats got a taste of what is in store in 2010. The people are speaking it is time for the ruling elite to listen. Americans love their freedoms. America is the envy of the world because of the individual freedoms not in spite of individual freedom. In 2009 we learned America yearns for change just as America yearned for change in 2008. In 2009, the establishment was provided a rude awakening. America voted for change in 2008. America realizes now that the only thing in Washington that changed is the political party that is in charge of pillaging the nation. America has spoken and it is time for the politicians to listen. The silent majority has awakened. The silent majority provided a majority decision in 2009, incumbents from both parties should fear the results.

The War Within

There is an all out war going on within America. Today the elitists from the New York Times are opining that the war is within the Republican Party. Frank Rich is giddy as he opines that the GOP war will be a boom for Democrats in the 2010 elections. The liberal perspective on the NY-23 special election is very narrowly viewed and being taken out of context. The elitist view is what is wrong with the country and is the true cause of the war within.

This war within is a war between the elitists and the grass roots. That is being demonstrated in NY-23. What happened in NY is happening around America and is not isolated to the GOP. Health Care is a prime example of how this little war being waged in more between the myopic view of elitists and grassroots than it is between conservatives and moderates. The liberal elite will do their best to portray the special election in NY as being a moderate Scozzafava and the moderate GOP versus a conservative Hoffman and the Conservatives of the GOP. In reality nothing could be further from the truth.

The Washington insiders and NY GOP selected a political moderate Scozzafava. Scozzafafva was politically left of her Democratic opponent. Socialist elitists from the left endorsed Scozzafava. The Daily Kos and ACORN were in her corner. The GOP insiders were hammered by the left into believing conservatives could no longer win in the Northeast. The GOP insiders left their principles at the door and selected a candidate that fit the elitist view that only liberal republicans could win in the North East. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The polls in New York are all showing Hoffman in a dead heat with Owens. Hoffman is a conservative while Owens is a moderate democrat. Hoffman is in a dead heat in spite of a Republican drawing support that would have otherwise been his. Hoffman is proving that this war going on in country is more about the average American repudiating the elitist views and standing for principle over party. This is happening all over the country.

The independent voters in our country bailed on the Republican party in 2006 and 2008. Those same independents are now bailing on the democratic party. Obama won Virginia one short year ago. This year the Democrat is down double digits in every poll. New Jersey has decidedly swung Democratic. Today the Democrat and Republican for Governor are in a dead heat. Again in New York we have a dead heat. NY 23 is a Republican district. However, Obama won that district by large numbers just one year ago. Now with a Republican and Conservative splitting the same voters, the democrat can barely pull himself into a dead heat.

The elitists in our country had best wake up and widen their view of what is happening. America is out their demanding their government be returned to the people. The people want their government back and are telling the insider establishment they had better become representative of the people and not their own party. The two party system is a disaster. NY 23 shows just how much a disaster the parties have become.

I feel sorry for the likes of Frank Rich. The elitist view is shortsighted and misses what really underlies the rejection of the establishment candidate. Remember Joe Lieberman? The Liberal establishment went after him in 2006 and sent in a primary challenger. Ned Lamont the insider chosen candidate overcame Joe in the primary. However, the people again went against the elitist candidate and sent Joe back to the Senate. The elitists are busy blaming the resistance to health care reform on Conservatives and Republicans. The problem is that the Democrats, liberals, and elitists, have the majority in government. The failure in American politics is because the elitists can only see black and white. One party or the other. The elitists demand the representatives place party and politics ahead of the people and the country.

There is a war going on and it is not just the imploding GOP. No, the war going on is between the government elitists and the people. The elitists are inciting riots and Tuesday 3 NOV may be the opening shots of the revolution that is bound to happen as America decides that perhaps the two party system is wrong headed. The elitists do not understand Americans love to govern themselves. Americans do not like to be governed. That is the true story of the war within.

The Refs Win one in Miami

The New Orleans Saints got the W but it was the refs that won them the game. Not to take anything away from the Saints or give Miami too much credit but this game changed direction on two of the worst calls I have seen in a long time. The first came at the end of the half and the other early in the third quarter. Both of these blown calls cost Miami the momentum and ultimately the game.

With Miami leading 24-3 and the Saints driving New Orleans threw a pass across the middle. New Orleans had no timeouts left and had the referees made the correct call time would have certainly run out in the half with New Orleans not scoring. Instead the referee called a touchdown when clearly the receiver was down short of the end zone. By calling a touchdown the clock stopped at 5 seconds. The call was overturned and the ball correctly spotted at the 1 yard line. The problem is the 5 seconds remained on the clock. New Orleans had no way of stopping the clock. By the time they would have lined up to spike the ball the half would have been long over. This blown call cost Miami 7 points.

The next blown call was on the Sharper interception. While there was no excuse for the interception as Ginn should have caught the ball, there is also no excuse for blowing another call by the referees. Clearly, the ball was fumbled through the end zone by Sharper and should have been called a touchback. Ginn who made a mistake in tipping the ball instead of catching made a good play in forcing sharper to fumble. I understand this was a close play. There was not clear visible evidence to overturn the call. However, what is clear is when Ginn hit Sharpers hands. The ball was coming out before the end zone just by knowing when the arms were hit jarring the ball loose.

There is no excuse for Miami blowing a 21 point lead. However, this game changed on two blown calls that had the referees got them correct would have changed the whole complexion of the game. Instead the blown calls changed the momentum in New Orleans favor taking the life out of Miami. Instead of saying how great New Orleans is maybe someone should look into the blown calls and analyze how these calls effected the game. There is no way New Orleans should have gotten that call at the end of the half. When the call was overturned time should have run out. That is what would have happened if the call was made correctly. New Orleans had no way to clock the ball. This will go into the books as a New Orleans win but clearly the referees won and Miami lost.

The Health Care Takeover Door Quickly Closing

The Democrats better pass health care in a hurry. Time is running out for them and we have Reid alienating every Republican by providing an opt out public option. The opt out is not really a way out from under the hostile takeover of our health system but the Democrats have decided they need to have a show of some kind. This opt out plan is not going to help get this legislation on to the floor of the Senate and time is running out.

In seven short days the campaign season for 2009 will draw to a close. Democrats are in the battle of their lives and may not even be noticing. Next Tuesday the Democrat Party may not go to sleep realizing their socialist dreams may not come to fruition. Liberals are in trouble in three very visible races in what will turn out as the preseason for 2010. The White House has already forsaken one Democrat in Virginia. Obama and his administration have come out and blamed Deeds for not embracing Obama soon enough. The problem is Obama did turn out in Virginia early in the race after Deeds won the primary and Deeds numbers went significantly lower. Deeds has yet to recover from the loss of support since Obama first weighed in.

A democrat Incumbent in New Jersey is in a toss up race in a very blue State. The only way Corzine even has a chance in a Democratic State is because an independent may take away just enough votes from Christie to allow him to hang on. Corzine has never polled above 41% and is sure to be far below 45% even if he should eke out what should have been an easy victory for any democrat. Corzine could lose despite spending millions of his own money and the support of Obama and Biden.

In New York 23 both the Republican and Democrat in the race are Obama type liberals in a fairly moderate district. This should have been another easy race for the Democrat. The Conservative candidate is drawing support from the pseudo Republican candidate. In fact the Conservative may actually win this race. The race is much closer than it appears. Today a poll from “Club for Growth’ has Conservative Hoffman ahead of Owens the Democrat and Scozzafava the Republican. I know the poll is from a friendly organization to the Hoffman campaign but any poll showing Hoffman in the lead should provide a boost for anyone desiring a change in Washington.

The loss of the Governorship in Virginia alone may be enough to make the Blue Dog Democrats quake in their boots. Should McDonnell win by the double digits most polls say he will the Democrats in swing districts may think twice about voting against their constituents. Should the Democrats also lose New Jersey there will be almost no way for the garbage in the house to pass. A politicians will to survive outweigh any party loyalty; just ask Arlen Specter who changed parties simply because he may have lost to a Republican primary challenger. Now Specter may not only lose to a Republican but also to his Democratic challenger. Should the Democrats lose in all three of these races the Democrats may actually wake up and push their hostile takeover of health care into the trash bin of history. Democrat best hurry up because their window of opportunity to rape the American public is quickly closing.

Let Them Eat Cake

The question of the day is where is the President of the United States? Eric Massa says Obama has been absent in the health care debate. Secretary of Defense Gates says Obama needs to make a decision on Afghanistan. Diane Feinstein can't find him even after imploring him to follow the advice of his handpicked General. The unemployed can't find the jobs Obama promised. So just exactly where is the President?

Come to find out the President is busy with "gigs" at the White House. That's right, while American soldiers are having their bases breached and dying at the hands of an ill equipped Taliban, Obama believes it is prudent to host extravaganzas at the White House. Perhaps if Obama had a few less "Gigs" at the White House, he could find the time necessary to talk to his Commanders on the ground. Obama has had a total of two conversations with GEN McCrystal but yet has had the time to host no less than 5 big extravaganzas. Even if Obama had 2 less musical gigs he could have had two more opportunities to talk with McCrystal, doubling his current effort.

Yes it is true Obama is busy entertaining his donors and guests, even while unemployment is hovering 10% and still rising. Maybe one less $40,000 date to NYC and Obama could take a look at the unemployment rate and make a push for jobs instead of pork. Americans are hurting and losing their homes and this President decides it is more important to party and start a war with Fox News. So where are all the jobs Mr. Obama promised? Certainly his pork spending must have saved some jobs but the negative creation of jobs under his watch greatly outweigh any saved jobs.

So the President is no where to e found in the great health care debate according to his own party. The majority of Americans are for reform but the same majority are also against the proposed reform under consideration in both the house and senate. Obama is far too busy pushing the next party theme to be bothered with actually outlining what he wants in health care. Obama is absent when it comes to his signature policy. The President is too good to get his hands dirty with outlining reform. Obama has a war to start with fox news and planning the next party for his friends at the White House on his mind.

America did not elect a President last November. America elected a Stardom seeking celebrity wannabe. Any President that ignores American soldiers in harms way, ignores unemployment approaching 10%, ignores a news organization with barrels of ink, and ignores his own signature policy debate, all for sake of the next party, is not deserving of the word President in front of their name. Obama is the biggest Zero of a President America has ever known. Wake up America before it is too late. Obama is not the savior for he is no where to be found when needed the most. Obama is more like Marie Antoinette with "let them eat cake" then he is an American President.

Obamacare: The Path To Socialism

Obamacare is the path to socialism and once enacted there will be no turning back. Even when the people of our great Nation realize they have been bamboozled by the socialist left there will be no way to correct the wrongs the Democrats will be causing with passage of Obamacare.

The Baucus bill that will be receiving a vote tomorrow will not be the bill that passes the Senate and certainly will not be the bill that passes once in conference. The $81 billion in false saving will be by the wayside. The $829 billion dollar cost will not be the final cost of this bill. Right now there is no public option. The Democrat leadership is insistent the final bill will have a public option. The Baucus bill ensures there will be a government takeover of the Health care system.

Today the Price Waterhouse Coopers audit came out and explained how everyone's insurance premiums would be increasing beyond what they naturally would have. A family will see over $4,000 in premium increases and single people will see $1,500 in premium increases. Of course without a public option young single folks who are already having problems paying bills would rather pay the $750 dollar fine than actually pay for insurance. What happens next is that there are not enough young healthy people to offset the costs of covering everyone with pre-existing conditions and older less healthy people. As the costs begin to skyrocket the government will have to step in as the single payer.

The single payer excuse will be blamed on the insurance companies. In reality the blame will be on a poorly written bill that will force the country down the path of socialized medicine. When the fine for not having or providing insurance becomes costs less than providing insurance everyone will be relying on the government to provide health care.

In the end no country has ever had a single payer health care system that has worked. In fact the costs of such health care leave their countries either like Canada where the waiting lines and rationing of healthcare forces their citizens into the United States just to receive basic care. On the other hand they could end up like Germany, France, or Cuba. In all of these countries the unemployment rate is consistently running 8-10% in the good times and much higher during times of recession. This means that the American dream will be dead and gone. No longer will Americans dream of having the next generation better the the last generation. Americans will have opportunity taken from them as they are waiting for more government handouts because there are no jobs.

This bill before the Senate is a bad bill. One must ask why it takes three years to see the benefits if we as a country are in such dire straights that this bill must pass today. Why not get the bill right? Why not set some pilot programs to see what works? Why jump in today for a bill today when it won't be available for three years. Like Wimpy telling Popeye that he will gladly pay tomorrow for a hamburger today. This is what Obama and the democrats are telling Americans. Obama wants this to pass today but will wait to tomorrow for the results. I can tell you why it won't take effect until 2013. The reason is politics pure and simple. Obama wants to run his next campaign on Healthcare without having the negative effects known to America.

Let there be no doubt this is a bill designed to get to a single payer socialist result. This bill has hidden costs that will cause the insurance industry to raise premiums. The higher costs will then provide the opportunity for the Democrats to finally socialize America and there will be no looking back. The Democrats are not changing America's direction; they are changing the American form of government. No longer will be the land of the free; we will become the land of the ruled.

Feinstein: Obama Indecisive

Today on ABC Senator Diane Feinstein said she didn't understand why Obama would have selected GEN Stanley McCrystal and then not listen to his recommendations. The equivocating Obama is neither advocating a buildup nor a withdrawal. Obama is not listening to his left or his right. Obama is indecisive and doesn't have any idea of what to do. In the mean time while Obama remains indecisive our young soldiers are dying and the United States is giving up ground.

Late last week after being breached by the Taliban, American forces closed a base in Kamdesh. Obama's indecisiveness resulted in the death of 8 American soldiers. The commanders on the ground gave up hope and abandoned the remote post. Obama's weak decision making is the direct result of local Afghan's losing hope. Even SEN Feinstein says "And the mission is in serious jeopardy."

Every day that goes by without Obama making a decision will make it more difficult to accomplish any of Obama's objectives if he has any. Feinstein says "I'll tell you what I said. I reviewed all of the intelligence and looked at the situation, and it was pretty clear to me that violence was up 100 percent, 950 attacks in August. The Taliban now controls 37 percent of the people in the areas where these people are. Attrition in police is running 67 percent, either killed or leaving the service. " Violence in Afghanistan is only increasing with almost 1000 attacks while Obama sits on his hands attempting to vote present.

Obama a leader does not vote present. When a leading Senator from your own party calls you out for being indecisive it is time to step aside and allow leaders tell you what to do. Obama's indecisiveness can not be allowed to continue. Being a weak leader is no excuse for allowing soldiers to die. Being a weak leader is no excuse for abandoning the people that are looking to you for stability in a war torn country. Obama your weak and indecisive leadership has brought the world much closer to a world war than resolving regional conflicts. Mr. President you are emboldening our enemies and making America and the world less safe. We are at a crossroads Mr. President and the world is awaiting your decision.

Mr. president you have three choices and the status qou is not one of them. Mr. President you may chose between a counter terrorism choice of which even Feinstein says won't work. You may chose to withdraw which you yourself said was not the right path. The only other choice is a counter insurgency strategy. The worst thing you can do is equivocate and make no decision at all. Your lack of leadership is costing lives.

Obama: The Equivocating President

Obama is an equivocator unworthy of his faithful legions. On May 11, 2009, Gen Stanley McCrystal was selected to be the in charge of the Afghanistan front. Yet 5 months later and Obama is still equivocating. Obama has yet to enunciate a strategy for Afghanistan. McCrystal came with a plan and Obama refuses to make a decision. The equivocating and voting "voting" present are more than just a pattern for Obama; they are becoming the way Obama Obama leads, which of course is not leadership.

Today Obama received the Nobel peace prize. Yet his senior advisers have cited "Hezbollah, the armed Lebanese political movement, as an example of what the Taliban could become." The Hezbollah is considered a terrorist organization and Obama wants to allow the Taliban back into the Afghanistan government. Obama sees no issues because Hezbollah only causes "regional instability". Yet that is all the Taliban was in 2000. There were a "regional instability". The Taliban couldn't even control more than 75% of Afghanistan let alone pose a threat to the US. Then as we all know Al Queda was allowed to hide out in Afghanistan and plot attacks on American soil. I am amazed that a Nobel Peace Prize winner can't see why "regional instability" is the root cause of all of the skirmishes America has been involved in since the Vietnam war. Lebanon is a "regional instability". Grenada was a "regional instability". Panama was a "regional instability". Somalia was a "regional instability". Iraq was a "regional instability". Bosnia and Kosovo more "regional instabilities". Now Obama is fine with "regional instabilities" because he sees no connection between "regional instability" and the world at large. For such a smart guy Obama can't connect the dots.

Obama has a history of voting present and equivocating. Obama demanded a stimulus package be ready for him to sign when he took office. Obama provided no guidance or direction. All Obama did was make the demand. Obama did the same thing on the omnibus bill. Just get it done and blame the Republicans is all Obama told the Congress. Obama is equivocating on the health bill also. All Obama is doing is making campaign trail statements and comments but leaving the heavy lifting to Congress. Now Afghanistan is turning out to be more of the same. Obama unable and unwilling to make a decision only issuing vague and ambiguous statements. Obama is weak and ineffective as a leader. Obama was considered lazy as a legislator because of his knack for voting present. Obama is a follower and not a leader.

For the life of me I can't figure why a follower would want to be President. It has become more than apparent that Obama does not want his fingerprints on anything controversial. Obama constantly forces others to do the heavy lifting while he sits idly by waiting for the time to hit the campaign trail so he can become the lead cheerleader. Obama should be paying his speech writer millions because the great equivocator is all talk and no action.

Is The GOP Rooting Against America?????

Is the GOP rooting against America? The Democrats, liberals, and media elite are running articles questioning the GOP and their patriotism for their lack of support for bringing the olympics to Chicago. “Some of these people are starting to put politics first and country second,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Markos Moulitsas of the daily kos was more blunt. “So when did wingnuts start cheering against America? Their unbridled joy at losing out to Brazil is a bit unseemly, isn't it?” he asked, adding: "America, f—- yeah!" has become "F—- America, Yeah!" Again is the GOP rooting against America or are the Democrats running from their unpopular policies.

The truth is the GOP is doing nothing but show Obama for what he is. Far from being a Statesman Obama is a photo Op celebrity. Obama has done nothing to turn the country around from the recession. The stimulus package is a wreck saving very fews jobs and creating even less. Afghanistan is turning into a disaster and Obama ignores his hand picked Commander. Iran is closing in on a nuclear weapon and Obama threatens more sanctions. The French say Obama is weak and Obama only smiles. The Dalai Lama schedules a trip to America and Obama snubs him in favor of the Communist regime in China. The Iranians revolt in the streets and Obama sides with the murderous regime. The Hondurans use their constitution and oust a communist thug and Obama sides with the communists in the region and calls the act illegal. The Russians threaten the Caucuses and Obama unilaterally withdraws a missile defense shield for Eastern Europe. The Olympic failure is just another in a long list of failures. The GOP is cheering only because they hope the left starts focusing on what is important in America and right now what is important is the economy and not the Olympics.

Now that Obama's ego has been brought back to Earth perhaps he will have time for the America he has been ignoring. Maybe now Obama might realize Americans desire a leader not a celebrity. Obama blew his political capital in a failed attempt to bring the Olympics to Chicago. Obama should have been focusing on the 9.8% unemployment rate. Obama should be focusing on the "war of necessity" in Afghanistan. Obama should be focusing on keeping Iran away from nuclear weapons. Instead Obama decided it was far more important to "sacrifice' with a European vacation to gain the Olympics only to return empty handed. No the GOP is not rooting against America. They are standing up for America and want the President to focus on what ails the country rather than fulfilling the Presidents insatiable ego.

Obama Fails; Left Blames Bush

Obama and Michelle traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark in an effort to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. Obama and Michelle's pitch fell on deaf ears as Chicago failed on the first ballot. Obama couldn't even make the race interesting. Out of 4 world cities Chicago finished dead last. Immediately following the failed plea the left immediately came out blaming Obama's failure on none other than George bush.

Jesse Jackson believes that the Bush administration had poor relations with the IOC and remnants of that era remain. Jackson believes for the final pitch the US sent in the "A-Team" including Obama, Michelle, and Oprah. No way this team could possible have failed so it must have been the previous administrations strained relationships in the international community. The blame for Obama's debacle isn't the fault of the A-Team but rather "..... political and mean-spirited," according to State Representative Susana Mendoza. "There must be resentment" according to Jesse Jackson. Jackson goes on to say "The way we [refused to sign] the Kyoto Treaty, we misled the world into Iraq. The world had a very bad taste in its mouth about us. But there was such a turnaround after last November. The world now feels better about America and about Americans. That's why I thought the president's going was the deal-maker." See there is no other reason for the messiah to have failed other than the Bush administration. It had to be a political decision.

There is no way that it could have been the poor public support for the olympics in Chicago. There is no way it could have been the corrupt Chicago politics. No way it could have been the fault of the current administration. No it has to be the fault of someone else. I mean Michelle "sacrificed" for her European junket. Taking a European vacation at taxpayer expense is so very difficult and the mighty sacrifices Michelle went through just to bring the honor of the Olympics to her home town. Why Michelle even lied ( said she remembers sitting on her dad's lap watching Carl Lewis, she would have been 20 years old when Carl entered the scene in 1984) in her speech in an effort to overcome Bush's failures.

The truth is Obama's ego is what made him a failure yesterday. Obama risked his Presidential Mojo on an Olympic bid. Obama and his handlers believed all he had to do is show up and the Olympics would be in the bag. Similar to when the New England Patriots believed all they had to do is show up on Super Bowl Sunday and the undefeated season was theirs. Unfortunately the President wasted presidential prestige and goodwill. The A-teams great oratory couldn't even keep Chicago from finishing last. Perhaps this hit on Obama's ego will wake him up. Perhaps he will learn that he is not the leader the world has been waiting for. Maybe Obama will realize he is becoming the weak and ineffective leader the World's rogue states have been waiting for. Obama flashed his smile but the world showed its teeth. There was no reason for Obama to waste his political goodwill. The public was not behind him.

America is in the midst on a recession. Unemployment is almost 10% and the President that it best he "sacrifice" with Michelle to go on a European junket. The government has a $1.58 trillion dollar deficit and Obama decided to hang out with the IOC. Bankruptcy at home is soaring and Obama fails in his bid for stardom. Obama has failed America. The failure of the Olympics is nothing compared to his failures at home. The Obama Stimulus package is a failure. The Obama Health Care plan is a failure. Obama's energy plan is a failure. The Olympic failure is just another in a long list.

Liberal Left: Above the Law

Liberals seem to believe they are above the law. The pathetic pawns of the left media are voicing outrage that Roman Polanski was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant from 1978. The left complains that somehow Polanski was duped into the arrest and that the Swiss are engaged in a nefarious act. Polanski has been a fugitive from the United States for 32 years yet the left seems to have forgiven Polanski for child rape simply because of the liberal leanings of his lifetime achievements.

Roman Polanski plead guilty to statutory rape charges. Polanski was a middle aged 44 year old when he had sexual relations with a thirteen year old. Now Anne Applebaum opines in the Washington post that Polanski paid for his crime by fleeing the United States to avoid sentencing. Applebaum complained that Polanski may not have known the victim’s real age. Applebaum came running to Polanski’s defense by saying there may have been prosecutorial misconduct. Applebaum goes on to say Polanski paid for his crime through Lawyer fees, in professional stigma, and in notoriety. Never does she claim that Polanski is innocent or paid his debt to society for his crimes.

In a country founded by laws, it is reprehensible that Applebaum opines of the wrong committed by the Swiss. Applebaum condemns a free nation while defending a child rapist. The entire left is going crazy over the thought that a liberal icon going to receive a lifetime achievement award would be arrested for a crime against society. Punishment for crimes is not about the individual victim as much as it is supposed to be about victimization of society. That the individual victim says she has forgiven Polanski makes no difference. That the victim says she would not want to see another trial or jail sentence for Polanski is immaterial. One might ask why. The answer my friends is simple: When a free society like America bring charges against a defendant in criminal action it is the State that brings the charges not the individual. This implies a certain moral obligation towards society as a whole.

That Polanski chose to flee America and become a fugitive from justice does not pay the price demanded by society in a lawful State . I didn’t hear Applebaum defend Kathleen Soliah when she was captured in 1999 and served seven years for her crimes related to the Patty Hearst kidnapping and the Symbionese Liberation Army. The fact is Polanski has not paid society for his crimes. The liberals coming to his defense are just as sickening as the crime itself. These same liberals went crazy over Warren Jeffs when he became a fugitive regarding underage marriages. Yet defend Polanski and hail Polanski’s lifetime achievements. America should be outraged that the left would defend a 44 year old man (at the time of his crimes) seeking sex with a 13 year old. Applebaum is wrong; Polanski ran from justice and has not paid for his crimes.

The liberal left has a pattern of believing they are above the law. The left in America goes after the conservatives and claims a culture of corruption on the right while ignoring the culture of corruption on the left. Recently, the left is desperately trying to sweep Charles Rangel’s tax evasion and other improprieties from making the headlines. The left did not force William Jefferson to resign even though he was found to have cold hard cash in his freezer that Jefferson obtained in a bribery sting operation. The left ran Delay out of town on trumped up charges yet allow the corruption on the left to go unchecked. The Polanski case is just another example of how the elitist left believes they are above the law. The Laws passed by the elitist left are for everyone else. They of course have no rules because of their lifetime achievements. Any defense of Polanski for having sexual relations with a thirteen year old is sickening. The left is not above the law and Polanski must be brought to justice. The left's hypocrisy is showing just as it did 40 years ago at Chappaquiddick.

Minimum Wage Increase: Young Unemployment Rate at 52.2%

In 2006 the Democrats rammed a 60 increase of the minimum wage through Congress. The law increased the minimum wage in three steps from Jul 2007 through JUL 2009. The final became effective on 24 JUL 09. This increase coincided with an increase in unemployment of .3% in AUG. Now according to a New York Post article the unemployment rate for young adults is 52.2%. The direct result of increasing the minimum wage is higher unemployment by the workers most likely to be employed by the minimum wage.

Now instead of the young working and building experience the young adults are living with their parents longer and still not receiving any experience. The raise in minimum wage had no choice but to increase unemployment for the young adults. The minimum wage increase was not enacted for the benefit of the young workers who worked for minimum wage garnering employment experience. No it was enacted for the unions that are friendly to the Democrats that enacted this garbage.

One might ask why or how the unions could benefit. The answer is because when there is an increase in minimum wage there is an increase of the rate of pay in many unions. Union labor has to be paid a rate above the minimum wage. This benefit to the unions is at the expense of young adults who are just starting out with work. Instead of working for college spending money young adults are forced to stay at home. Young adults will not have any experience or work record when they start looking for full time employment to live their lives. Yet the unions receive more pay as even their unemployment increases. As industry closes manufacturing plants big union receives higher pay and our young can look forward to absolutely nothing.

Obama was carried to victory on the strength of young voters. Yet they are increasingly the people benefiting the least from Democratic policies. The minimum wage increase went to union labor. Even the stimulus package did nothing to invest in jobs for young adults. Instead the stimulus went to further union labor. Union labor helped build this country. However Unions are destroying this country. The minimum wage hikes are directly responsible for having a young adult unemployment rate higher than it has been since WWII. What a shame that unions benefit while the ones that depended on the minimum wage remain unemployed. Just another bad policy meant to redistribute wealth.

Social Security: The Pyramid Is Broke

The great liberal pyramid scheme is broke. For the years 2010 and 2011 the fund is scheduled to take in less than it dishes out. Then by 2017 the fund is never to see the black again unless there are massive changes. The social security trust fund has 2.5 trillion dollars and will be able to stay afloat for awhile. The problem is that the trust fund doesn't really have any money in it. The vault is full of US Government IOU's in the form of Treasury Bonds. Social Security is for all intents and purposes out of money and we have barely started paying benefits to the baby boomers.

The baby boomers have just now started retiring. The baby boom generation will be retiring and drawing huge social security benefits over the next half a century. The trust fund is been spent on other frivolous liberal "great ideas". America will begin feeling the pinch next year as our deficit will climb ever higher. Once the retirements of baby boomers increase over the next five years America will quickly spiral into out of control deficits.

The liberal promise of a safety net for seniors is crashing down around them. The government is about to renege and is do absolutely nothing to resolve the issue. Instead of shoring up social security as was proposed since the turn of the century the democrats blocked any attempt ensure social security would be there not just for their own generation but for generations to come. The democrats scared seniors into believing republicans wanted to overturn social security. Nothing could be further from the truth. Republicans tried to shore up social security to avert impending disaster. The republicans saw this coming and new that the pyramid scheme would come crashing down if something wasn't done.

Now the democrats are ignoring this problem. They are ignoring the economy. They are ignoring everything the government is supposed to be doing. Instead the democrats are bent on destroying the American economy with redistribution schemes and a hostile takeover of the American health industry. The democrats need to get real and focus on the real ills facing America. Social Security is broken and the pyramid is about to come crashing down.
