The final two battles (Part One) – Tea Party Nation

The final two battles (Part One) – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

There are two battles that are coming up that will decide whether America can be saved at all or if America is headed towards decline and fall or perhaps simply a massive breakup. 

 

What are those two battles that are coming?

 

The so-called “Fiscal Cliff” is not one of them.  The “Fiscal Cliff” is a politician created disaster that is simply a sideshow. 

 

What are the two battles and why must we win them?

 

The first battle is the battle for Amnesty.

 

The pro-amnesty crowd was out the door the day after Mitt Romney’s disastrous loss to Barack Obama.

 

They pointed out that Obama did much better in the Hispanic demographics than Romney did.   Their immediate conclusion was that we must immediately embrace the entire open borders agenda, including amnesty; otherwise the Republican Party would be forever lost.

 

Why conservatives even listen to the terminally stupid is beyond me.  The open borders coalition is made up of a whole bunch of leftist groups and establishment Republicans.  Since when have they been right on anything?

 

Romney lost because he was a terrible candidate.  He offered nothing.  Obama made inroads into the Hispanic community because he offered Amnesty.

 

Not all Hispanics support Amnesty.   However, when Obama is offering something and Romney is not offering any good reason to vote for him, other than he is not Obama, Romney would lose every time.

 

The Republican Establishment seems to think if we just embrace Amnesty, all of these newly legalized people will suddenly become Republicans.  This notion is absurd.   We tried this before.  In 1986, President Reagan signed an Amnesty bill.  Did all of those people who received Amnesty become Republicans?  No.  What makes anyone think that would be any different today?

 

We live in a Democracy

 

Many people are going to jump up and down about that comment and shout back, “We live in a Constitutional Republic.” 

 

No, we don’t.

 

America used to be a Constitutional Republic.  Unfortunately all of the safeguards that make a Republic stable are gone.

 

Today we live in a Democracy and as wiser men than me have pointed out, Democracy is an inherently unstable form of government.  It will work for a while, then the people will discover they can vote themselves benefits from the public treasury.  When they do that, Democracy dies and is almost always replaced by tyranny.

 

Allowing Amnesty would be a political and demographic disaster for America. 

 

If you create ten to twenty million new citizens, you will immediately tilt the political balance of power to the Democrats.  If you doubt this, look at California. 

 

Most of the illegal aliens in this nation have the economic value of being able to be paid under the table.  The myth is they do jobs Americans won’t do.  No, they will do jobs for wages Americans will not accept.  They can be paid under the table now and that makes them attractive to employers.   Once they are legal, what will happen?   They won’t be paid sub-minimum wage and they won’t be paid under the table anymore.

 

Most of these immigrants have less than a 6th grade education.

 

Why?

 

Because in Mexico and some of the other nations they originally come from, compulsory public education ends at elementary school.   These people can do menial jobs in our society, such as housecleaning or day labor.   What happens when they are legal?

 

Those who push the welfare state will be out among them showing them all of the wonderful benefits they can get from the government.   Many of them will be able to claim “disability” and not have to work any more.  For some of them, it will be paradise.  They will make more money than they have ever made and not have to do back breaking work. 

 

Once ten to twenty million illegal aliens receive Amnesty and start receiving government benefits, you can guess what will happen at the next election.  The Democrat will go out to these people and claim the Republicans want to cut off their benefits.  Barack Obama took the popular vote in 2012, by four million votes.  Had the Republicans run a good candidate that is a margin that could have been overcome.

 

With Amnesty and a permanent underclass that will vote Democrat, the vote margin would swing to about ten million in favor of the Democrat.  We would never see another Republican elected President.

 

So what about the ten to twenty million illegal aliens in this nation?

 

We are not simply going to be able to deport them.  Many of them have children and grandchildren who are American citizens and who will never forget that the government deported their grandmother.

 

We are going to have to figure something out that allows those who came into this nation, worked hard to make a living and did not violate the law (other than the illegal entry into the United States) to obtain some legal status.  We must fight any attempt to create a pathway to citizenship. 

 

If you broke the law to get here, we will forgive some things but you will not be rewarded with American citizenship.

 

If Republicans surrender on this, they will create a disaster that will be the end of America.  They will create an underclass that will last at least two generations.  It will be an underclass trapped in poverty, but with the full voting rights of all other Americans.  It will be a voting block that will quickly learn that it can vote itself benefits from the other taxpayers.  It will be a case of the takers giving the makers orders.

 

If this happens, we will see America disintegrate quickly.

 

We all know the famous quote from Benjamin Franklin after the Constitutional Convention.  He was asked by a lady, “What kind of government have you given us Dr. Franklin?”  Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

 

We have not kept the Republic and now the question is, will we be able to even keep freedom and liberty.

Destroying the meme – Tea Party Nation

Destroying the meme – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Immediately after the election results became official Tuesday night, the left launched into a narrative about the election.

 

As with almost every narrative the left floats out there, it is a false narrative.

 

Unfortunately, we must fight this immediately or it will become the accepted narrative and will cause extraordinary damage to the conservative movement.

 

What is this shocking lie the left is spreading and what must we do?

 

The lie is simple. 

 

The lie is the American people rejected conservatism in general and the Tea Party in particular on Tuesday. 

 

This is the big lie.  For starters Mitt Romney was not a conservative.  Contrary to that idiotic remark he made during the primaries about being “severely conservative”, he was nether severe nor was he conservative.  He was a safe, moderate, candidate.

 

Mitt Romney never even mentioned the Tea Party during his campaign.  He specifically made it a point of campaigning without Tea Party support during the primary and the general election.  He made it a point of adopting positions that were not Tea Party positions. 

 

Mitt Romney lost for two reasons and neither of them had anything to do with conservatism.  First, he was a lousy candidate.  He was just another northeastern moderate that the establishment wanted, but not the conservatives who make up the boots on the ground for the GOP.

 

Romney had nothing about him that excited anyone.  Most of the people who were supporting Romney were never Romney voters.  They were OMG voters.  OMG: Obama Must Go.  They were not voting for Romney.  They were voting against Obama.

 

One of the truisms of politics is, if the electorate is voting against the other guy instead of voting for you, you have a real problem.   At the end of the day, a lot of groups went out there and decided if they were going to vote for someone, they would vote for Obama. 

 

Word is now coming out about how badly managed the Romney campaign was.  Despite Romney’s vaunted reputation as a fixer and a businessman, he could not run his own campaign.  The get out the vote effort was a joke.  At the end of the night, Romney tallied fewer votes than John McCain did four years ago.

 

A number of well-known conservatives went down to defeat on Tuesday night.  Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock were defeated.  Their defeat was not due to a repudiation of conservatism, but instead was due to two guys who did not handle gotcha questions well.    The liberal media screamed about Mourdock’s stand on abortion and how he would drag women back to the dark ages, when his opponent has the exact same beliefs on abortion. 

 

Joe Walsh lost because he was redistricted from being in a nominally Republican District to a Democrat district. 

 

And then there is Allen West.  West initially won, then a Democrat election official “rechecked” ballots and suddenly West went from a 2000 vote lead to a 4000 vote deficit.  Now, Allen West has a narrow lead.   Amazingly enough, in some of these precincts, they had over 100% voter participation.   In Port St. Lucie, amid many allegations of vote fraud and tampering, 141% of the registered voters cast ballots. 

 

That’s right.  141% of registered voters cast ballots.  As the recount is proceeding, Democrat officials are not allowing Republican watchers and neutral observers to see the process, leading many people to believe they are trying to steal the election. 

 

The narrative being pushed not only by the left but also by the establishment of the GOP is that the conservatives are the ones who are responsible for the defeat.  The opposite is true.  The Republican establishment that gave us Mitt Romney and so incompetently ran the national campaign for President and for the Senate is responsible for this defeat.

 

We must make certain everyone knows this and they do not forget it.

LDS – Tea Party Nation

LDS – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

24 hours from now, the voting will begin for the 2012 election.  We will be voting for the President, control of the Senate and will determine the margin by which the Republicans control the House.

 We are already seeing a lot of LDS and will see a lot more before it is over.

What is LDS and why is it a threat to you?

 LDS is liberal derangement syndrome. 

 While it is fun to laugh at liberals, this one is very serious. 

Liberalism is a mental illness.  I’m not the first one to come up with that idea.  Michael Savage had a best seller by that name.  Unfortunately for real Americans liberals live in this world of delusion.

 In the days of the old Soviet Union, there was a concept that bound artists called “Socialist Reality.”   Artists could not portray things as they were, only as they should be. 

 Liberals live in this alternative reality that we can call liberal reality.   In their imaginary world, things are never as they are, only as they should be.

 In their imaginary world, Barack Obama is the greatest leader ever.  In their imaginary world, the stimulus has worked.  In their imaginary world, the only people who dare oppose Obama or liberalism are racists and evil corporatists.

 In their imaginary world, Obama is cruising on to victory.  The Democrats are going to keep the Senate and somehow, Nancy Pelosi is going to end up as Speaker of the House again.

 The problem liberals have is that the real world is now intruding on their imaginary world. 

 Liberals are not handling this well.   It simply cannot be true that Obama is only drawing crowds of two thousand while Romney is drawing crowds of thirty thousand.   It simply cannot be true that Obama is not only not picking up any new states this time around, but Romney is now competitive on some very blue states, including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota.  It cannot be true that the only way Obama is coming up ahead on polls is for the polls to massively oversample Democrats.

 Liberals, to quote the famous Jack Nicholson line from A Few Good Men, “can’t handle the truth!”

 Unfortunately, this lack of ability to handle reality is now showing itself up as anger.  Liberals have been harassing conservatives online regularly, but in the last couple of days, that harassment has gone to new levels.  On twitter, there are too many threats to assassinate Mitt Romney if he wins for the Secret Service to keep up with.

 Now the latest is the liberals are threatening to riot if Romney wins. 

 Romney is going to win.  He will win decisively. 

 The Republicans are going to take the Senate as well.  The American people will speak, but do you expect the left to simply accept the results and say the people have spoken?

 No.  That isn’t going to happen.

 Liberal Derangement Syndrome will go off the charts in the next few days.  It will be like nothing we have seen so far.  For conservatives, our mission is not over.   Electing Mitt Romney and a Republican Senate is not enough. 

 The Obama Propaganda Media will be working overtime to begin spinning Romney’s administration as a failure and Obama’s regime was really more successful that we realized.  They will work hard to claim Romney won with dirty tricks.  As the left goes off the rails, they will ignore everything liberals suffering from LDS do.

 We have social media.  We now have a conservative media with WND, Breitbart and others.  We can bypass the Obama Propaganda Media.

 LDS will be in full force for the next few months.  We need to use the tools we have to highlight LDS in all of its horror.

The dumbest lawyer in America – Tea Party Nation

The dumbest lawyer in America – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Who is the dumbest lawyer in America?  This one will give you a laugh.  You might be able to guess.  You’ll have fun not only trying to guess but once you find out, you will be amused.

 Who is the dumbest lawyer in America?

 It is far left wing, Botoxed nut job fame whore Gloria Allred.

 Everyone knows the most dangerous place in America is the turf that stands between her and a TV camera

 This time she really beclowned herself.

 Poor little Gloria thought she had the October surprise.  She was going to bring down the Romney campaign.

 How?

 Staples founder Tom Stemberg, who is a friend of Mitt Romney, went through a nasty divorce a number of years back.   All of the testimony from depositions and other hearings in the divorce was ordered sealed.  While the news stories do not specify this, it seems likely at some point the divorce settled by Tom Stemberg’s ex-wife agreed to a really tight non-disclosure agreement as a part of the settlement.

 Such agreements are not uncommon.  Top-level executives do not want bitter ex-wives (or now ex husbands) running around saying nasty things about them.  Those kinds of things can destroy a career.

 Gloria Allred somehow connected with Stemberg’s ex-wife and figured she had just hit the win-win scenario.  Mitt Romney testified in a deposition in the divorce.  According to published reports, most of his testimony dealt with the valuation of Staples. 

 Yawn.

 Allred figured either there was something really damning in the deposition or better yet, Romney would raise hell about releasing the sealed deposition.  That could be even better because it would open the door to all kinds of speculation.

 Romney threw her when he said he had no objection to the deposition being unsealed.

 Oops.

 Turns out there is nothing there.

 Of course, given Gloria Allred’s track record, that should be no surprise.

 But then came the really funny part. 

 Allred wanted the Judge to release Stemberg’s wife from the non-disclosure agreement so presumably she could trash Mitt Romney.

 The Judge told her no.

 Why did the Judge tell her no?

 Because Allred did not file a motion requesting this!

 Every lawyer will tell you and even first year law students know, if you want the Judge to do something, you have to file a motion.  The purpose of a motion is to put the other side on notice as to what you want.  Due process requires notice so that if there is an objection, they have time to raise it and properly prepare.

 Allred apparently thought just because she was Gloria Allred, this judge was going to simply roll over and grant her request, without a motion.

 Allred was stunned.  She went out later and blamed this on the Boston Globe, which had also filed a motion to have the transcript unsealed. 

 It looks like the Botox has gotten to Allred’s brain.  Of course, she is a far leftist, so she isn’t that bright to begin with.  She is fortunate that California does not require lawyers to be recertified or take the bar over. 

 Otherwise, she might have to find a real job.

Condescending debate outburst exposes weak defense strategy

Note to President Obama: Stop pretending you’re a military genius. “Commander in chief” is simply a title, not a skill set.

In Monday night’s foreign policy debate, Mr. Obama mocked Republican challenger Mitt Romney for daring to discuss the dangerous diminution of American naval assets to levels of a century ago. “Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed,” said Mr. Obama. “We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships.” Rarely has a president come across as more petulant on such a serious topic.

Mr. Obama meant to belittle Mr. Romney by comparing his ship metric to a children’s game, but Mr. Romney was speaking with a shorthand familiar to all military specialists — except, apparently, Mr. Obama. Until this year, Navy planners spoke of building up to a 313-ship fleet. The Navy’s 30-year shipbuilding plan attached to the 2012 budget request projected the addition of 57 new ships by 2017. Last January, the Defense Department scaled this back to 41 vessels with planners abandoning all hope of reaching 313. This was the background to Mr. Romney’s comment, and it demonstrates he knows more about how the military works than Mr. Obama.

The “horses and bayonets” line was supposed to evoke images of wars gone by, but the jape is backfiring on Mr. Obama. Critics recalled the innovative use of horses by special operators in Afghanistan, where the rocky terrain often makes travel by Jeep difficult. Soldiers and Marines objected that they still grasp the spirit of the bayonet. Bayonets remain part of the military inventory, doubling in the field as a general-purpose knife. There are undoubtedly more of them now than 100 years ago when the land force was seven times smaller. Last year, the Defense Department issued a solicitation for 40,000 new blades as a 100 percent small-business set-aside. Mr. Obama’s laugh line was some small-business owner’s livelihood.

The condescending lecture about “ships that go under water” was supposed to create the image of Mr. Obama as a great strategic leader, but his record proves he’s anything but. As a senator in 2007, he adamantly opposed the successful surge strategy that won the war in Iraq. As president, he launched a surge in Afghanistan that has been a high-casualty failure. He is radically depleting the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal which fatally undercuts the credibility of his promises to extend deterrence to worried states on Iran’s periphery. He claims to have won the war against al Qaeda while giving encouragement to radical Islamists in Egypt who are pursuing the same strategic goals as Osama bin Laden. He is shifting the U.S. military focus to the Pacific at a time when the Middle East is becoming greatly destabilized. He has reduced America’s presence in space while competitor states expand theirs.

As China works to launch a blue-water fleet, Mr. Obama continues to sink plans for the force that could dissuade them from even trying. Mr. Obama may not count ships, but Beijing certainly does.

NUGENT: Want a job? Vote for Romney – Washington Times

NUGENT: Want a job? Vote for Romney – Washington Times.

Team Obama can’t help you

By Ted Nugent – The Washington Times

It boils down to this: If you want to grow the economy and get a job, vote for Mitt Romney. If you want more anti-business policies and counterproductive government welfare, vote for President Obama.

The difference between the candidates is as distinct as the difference between me and anti-hunting and animal-scam goofballs such as Wayne Pacelle. I’m precious; Wayne Pacelle is the Potentate of Bizzaro.

The business community — the engine that creates jobs — is solidly lined up behind Mr. Romney.

In an interview with CNSNews.com, Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas business tycoon, stated that he’s afraid of the president. “I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up with next. I have no idea,” he said. He went on to say that every business guy in the country is frightened by the way the president thinks.

There isn’t a single poll of small or large businesses that finds the president leading Mr. Romney. Not one.

Poll after poll of Americans finds that we trust Mr. Romney over the president on handling the economy. Just a hunch, but maybe that’s because Mr. Romney has decades of business experience compared to the president’s zero private-sector experience.

What this election is all about is jobs and the economy. While other things are important, jobs matter most, as it should be.

Too many Americans remain unemployed and underemployed. Instead of improving the economy over the past four years as he promised, the president and his clueless policies instead have torpedoed the economy and made things much worse for everyone.

If a grade were given to the president on improving the economy and creating jobs, he would get an F.

Instead of cutting taxes for business owners, which would spur the economy forward, the president wants to raise taxes on business owners. You don’t need to be Steve Wynn or Steve Forbes to know that punishing producers is a comfortably dumb move.

Making dumb economic moves is the hallmark of this president and his team, who have zero free-market experience, including the secretary of labor. Again, just a hunch, but wouldn’t it be a wise move for the secretary of labor to have some private-sector labor experience? You can’t be my bass player if you can’t play bass.

Bottom line is that the business community doesn’t believe or trust Mr. Obama.

The bottom line for Americans looking for a job is that if the business community doesn’t trust the president, Americans looking for a good-paying job shouldn’t trust him, either.

If the singular most important issue is jobs in this election, then the choice is clear. You will cast your vote for Mr. Romney, and he will win in a landslide.

If you vote for the president because you hope he will improve the economy, my advice to you is that hope isn’t a job-creating strategy. Americans would be wise to follow their heads, not their misplaced, hope-filled hearts, when entering the voting booth.

A vote for Mr. Obama is a vote to prolong America’s economic woes for another four years. America can’t afford that.

Never give your car keys to a drunk, and never trust a socialist to run a free-market economy.

Black Christians: Shame! Shame! Shame! – Tea Party Nation

Black Christians: Shame! Shame! Shame! – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Lloyd Marcus

Increasingly, I am hearing the following mantra/narrative from Black Christians. “I’m voting for Obama because he is the lesser of the two evils.” This is an extremely weak veiled attempt to justify their racism and loyalty to The Black Code (never side with a white against a fellow black).

From a Christian point of view, how can any Bible believer conclude that Mitt Romney is more evil than Barack Obama?

Here are a few of the numerous things on Obama’s anti-Christian agenda. Obama supports same-sex marriage and has vowed to be an advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. Obama supports abortion including infanticide (making it illegal to provide medical aid to a baby that has survived a failed abortion). Despite their strong will to survive, these babies must be left to die.

Massive governmental controls hidden in Obamacare include forcing Christian institutions to fund abortion services against the teachings of their faith. Think about that; the federal government demanding that Christians betray their biblical beliefs. Forty Catholic groups are fighting back by suing the Obama Administration. In typical liberal incremental fashion, our military has gone from a “Don’t ask/ Don’t tell” policy to being mandated to celebrate Gay Pride Month under Obama.

Indisputable facts are available everywhere exposing Obama to be the most anti-Christian president in U.S. History.  I know some of you Black Christians will continue to stick your heads in the sand, refusing to accept the truth. Woe be unto you. Racism is evil, whether it comes from whites or blacks blindly worshiping Obama because of his skin-color.

So Black Christians, tell me Romney’s stated ant-Christian agenda. Grasping at straws, some will say Romney is a Mormon and Mormonism does not jive with Christianity. Well, you may have a point. However, Romney has not attacked Christianity or pledged to force Christians to betray their faith. Obama is boldly and dictatorially implementing his anti-Christian agenda. Regrettably, many of you black so-called followers of Christ realize who Obama really is and what he is doing. And yet, you will vote for him anyway because of your sick addiction to racial politics.

I have also heard Christians say, “OK, I admit that Obama is destroying America, but I cannot vote for a Mormon.” Such thinking is illogical. Imagine, your home is on fire and your family is trapped inside. The Hells Angels motorcycle gang arrives at the scene offering to go inside to rescue your loved ones. How absurd would it be to reject their “God-sent” help because you disapprove of the Hells Angels’ lifestyle?

Remember this old joke? A guy was trapped on his roof during a flood. He prayed for help. Various volunteers came to his aid in boats. The man rejected them all, waiting for God to save him. The foolish man drowned. In Heaven, the man asked God why he did not answer his prayer. God replied, “I did answer your prayer. You rejected everyone I sent.”

America is on fire folks. Romney/Ryan are the most available firefighters. Thus, I believe they are “God-sent.”

I asked a black minister friend to further explain this “lesser evil” thing. He said the “lesser evil” in his mind is the economy. While not disputing Obama’s anti-Christian agenda, Obama still wins his vote because he believes Romney/Ryan’s plan will further the decline of America’s economy. In essence, this black minister of the Gospel is saying he values the economy over God’s condemnation of homosexuality, over the lives of babies and over freedom of worship.

And by the way, this minister thinking that Obama’s economic plan of spending our way to prosperity is superior to Romney/Ryan’s plan is idiotic, nonsensical and absurd. I can not believe my friend is that stupid. I believe sighting the economy as his reason for voting for Obama is a weak excuse to mask his racism; pure and simple.

To all you, Obama-is-the-lesser-of-two-evils black Christian voters, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You “ain’t” foolin’ nobody. You are racists! May God have mercy on your souls.

Can Obama’s Foreign Policies Suck Any Worse? – Tea Party Nation

 

Can Obama’s Foreign Policies Suck Any Worse? – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

Other than the sound bites on the TV news, I doubt that most people have actually read Mitt Romney’s Monday speech at the Virginia Military Institute. It was extraordinary and demonstrated a grasp of the many regions of the world that pose problems for their citizens, their neighbors, and, in some cases, the whole world.

The world always has been and likely always will be a dangerous place somewhere. When I look at the United Nations headquarters in New York, what I see is a place that would make a decent condominium, complete with its own theatre, because it is the most failed international institution on Earth.

Even though the UN has 192 members, the U.S. in 2010 contributed on average between 22% and 27% of the budgets for thirty-seven UN organizations, agencies, commissions, and programs. With the exception of Western member nations, the UN is a cruel charade about peace, human rights, and democracy.

There’s an independent watchdog organization called Freedom House that performs a valuable service by surveying the nations of the world to identify those where freedom is still struggling to emerge. In its recent report, “Countries at the Crossroads 2012” it spells out where the trouble spots are and, without intending to, it is also a global map of Obama’s pathetic foreign affairs policies.

If you put the Freedom House report side-by-side with Mitt Romney’s speech text, you would discover that he has a remarkable grasp of the realities of the shifting dynamics of world affairs. As he said in his speech, “Hope is not a strategy.” If anything, Obama’s strategies—assuming he even has any—have demonstrably weakened America’s role in the Middle East and throughout the world. A President who does not attend daily intelligence briefings as those before him did is quite simply absent without leave.

Freedom House analyst, Vanessa Tucker, says bluntly that “The weakness of the governance institutions in the Middle Eastern and North African countries can be seen in the riots occurring across the region and the authorities’ inability to respond effectively to unrest. After decades of corrupt and repressive rule, citizens in these states are facing brutal and ineffective security forces, habitually divisive and confrontational politics, and a lack of productive avenues through which to lodge their grievances and assert their rights.”

Most Americans cannot even imagine living in such places, but most Americans have not lived in nations where Islam, an inherently oppressive faith system, is the rule and where often secular despots enforce it to their personal gain.

It’s not just the Middle East. In Latin America there has been a surge of violence and organized crime—drug cartels—have not hesitate to kill journalists in Mexico and Honduras, affecting as well the political process in Mexico and in Guatemala. In Asian nations, particularly Sri Lanka and Vietnam, Indonesia and Cambodia, the governments continue to restrict freedom of expression. South Africa is suffering the dominance of the African National Congress and there are electoral abuses in Malawi and Uganda. Tanzania and Zimbabwe are cesspools of corruption.

Romney’s speech was filled with specifics, but you would not know that from the way it was generally under-reported.

# Romney identified the attacks in Libya and against our embassies in “two dozen other countries, mostly in the Middle East, but also in Africa and Asia” as evidence of widespread anti-Americanism. They were, he said, the work of those “who seek perpetual war on the West.” Can you spell j-i-h-a-d? Romney can.

# Romney said, “I will put the leaders of Iran on notice that the United States and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability.” By contrast, Obama has done everything he can to reduce the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

# Romney said, “I will roll back President Obama’s deep and arbitrary cuts to our national defense that would devastate our military. I will make critical defense investments that we need to remain secure. The first purpose of a strong military is to prevent war.” That is a lesson that even the ancient Greeks understood when they said “Si vis pacem, para bellum” If you want peace, plan for war.

# Romney said “I will champion free trace and restore it as a critical element of our strategy…the President has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years. I will reverse that failure.”

I have never lived in an America that was not a world leader and, following WWII, a superpower. For more than four decades the U.S. faced off against the former Soviet Union until its collapse. The U.S. Navy has kept the sea lanes of the world open. The U.S. has gone to war when it was deemed the only option.

Obama has been the first President since George Washington to assert that “any world order that elevates one nation or group over another will inevitably fail.” A world that looks to the U.S. for leadership has witnessed the failure of Obama’s foreign policy.

We can only continue our exceptional role if we get our fiscal house in order and that means ridding the nation of the most profligate chief executive in our history. We can rebuild our military and create thousands of jobs in the process. We can tap our enormous energy reserves and create more thousands of jobs. We can lift the regulatory burden from businesses large and small. We can reform our tax laws.

We can make ourselves and our allies safer in an ever-dangerous world, but not if we have a President whose only strategy for peace and security is “hope.” It is no substitute for leadership and preparedness.

The Black Divider-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation

 

The Black Divider-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Lloyd Marcus

When our Rebuild America Defeat Obama tour bus rolled into downtown Dayton Ohio, the hostile vibe from blacks on the streets filled the air. A young black man called our team, Romney and Ryan “M-F-ers” before walking away. I went to find a restroom and passed a group of young blacks on a street corner murmuring about our tour buses. A young black staffer on our team said he thought he was going to have to break out his Chuck Norris skills.

Clearly, our team was at risk. I am grateful to report that the Lord had our backs and nothing serious happened. However, I could not help thinking, “This extreme racial tension and polarization is the fault of the irresponsible Chicago thug in the White House.”

One could argue that it would be the same if any other black were president. I think not. A responsible black president would discourage his supporters from using race to further his agenda and win reelection. A president worthy of the office would understand that national racial unity is fragile and precious; not something to be exploited to win policy issues or sacrificed on the reelection alter. But only a person of character would think such high thoughts. A minister said there is nothing worse than a small person in a big position.

Obama has proven himself to be a “small” man, lacking in character. Not only is Obama incapable of taking the higher ground to discourage racial cliches, he stirs the pot of racial stereotypes and false assumptions. Heck, Obama’s minions have made “race” the centerpiece of his reelection campaign. Their message is simple. Anyone not voting for Obama is a “hater” and a “racist”. Dear Lord, how did we as a nation come to expect so little in terms of the morality and character of our leaders? Obama runs America like a mob boss with young zombie blacks, his bully Justice Department and SEIU/ACORN thugs as his enforcers.

We are all familiar with the numerous occasions in which our president has despicably used race. Obama’s minions launched a campaign to brand all who opposed Obamacare racist. Before knowing the facts, Obama said cops do profile blacks and Hispanics and that they acted stupidly in the Gates case.  He said small town Americans cling to religion and gunsand do not like those who do not look like them. Obama also accused small-towners of being anti-immigrant.

In response to the Trayvon Martin shooting, Obama said if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. Why is that relevant other than to interject race? Obama launched a campaign ad titled, African-Americans for Obama.  When is the Caucasian-Americans for Romney ad coming? The mainstream media would have a cow.

A video resurfaced showing Obama basically telling blacks that the government does not like them. Thus, concluding that racism made aid to post-Katina New Orleans slow. This is the man in our White House folks.

Had blacks such as JC Watts or Condoleezza Rice been elected president, I do not believe that we would see a racial line dividing the heart of America. Brother and sister Americans, we deserve much, much better than Barack Hussein Obama.

Liar-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation

 

Liar-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

The fabled British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli has oft been quoted for saying “There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Later another Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, said “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”

The Ten Commandments includes the admonition, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” All parents strive mightily to teach their children to tell the truth and Mitt Romney, in the first debate with Barack Obama dissected the lies being told about his proposed policies.

The journalist, H.L. Mencken said, “The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.”

The current political campaign is replete with fact-checkers, a growing doubt regarding the accuracy of polls and news reporting, and charges of lying flying back and forth between candidates and political parties. Lies do not go unnoticed.

Political campaigns require people to sort out the lies from the truth and on Wednesday, an audience of millions seemed to suddenly discover that President Obama was not telling the truth as Mitt Romney skillfully presented facts and statistics that undermined his record in office and the lies he has been telling about that record.

Stunned by Romney’s presentation, the Democratic Party responded with a news release claiming that he had lied. “But when the dust settles, Romney’s dozen flat-out falsehoods will be the only thing remaining…” If Romney had been lying, it would have been front-page news. It is the same Democratic Party that has run ads saying Romney is a felon and a murderer!.

The simple, undeniable truth is that Barack Obama has set new records for lying, often when there was no need to. It isn’t just casual lying. It is pathological to a point where entire books have cataloged them and there are Internet sites that keep a record of them.

During the 2008 campaign Obama claimed that the civil rights march in Selma, Alabama inspired his birth, but Selma was in 1965 and Obama had been born in 1961. He said his father had been a goat herder in Kenyan, but he had been a privileged, well-educated youth who went on to work for the Kenyan government. He claimed his Kenyon grandmother was Christian, but she was a Muslim and Christianity would not have permitted her to have been one of 14 wives.

Obama even lied about his name Barack, saying it was Swahlli when, in truth, it is Arabic as is his middle name, Hussein. He claimed the school he attended as a child from age 6 to 10 in Indonesia was Christian. It was Muslim. He lied throughout the 2008 campaign and it should be no surprise that he has lied throughout his presidency.

In July, Human Events published a list, “Top Ten Obama Lies”, noting the lie that his mother who had died of cancer after being denied insurance coverage for a preexisting condition, using the lie to sell Obamacare, but Ann Durham had health insurance through her employer and was only denied disability insurance.

Human Events noted that Obama had claimed during his campaign that he would not raise taxes on families making less than $250,000 but “Obamacare’s individual mandate will hit many under the $250,000 mark and the Supreme Court would later rule that the mandate was a tax, not a penalty.

He has repeatedly said Americans could keep their doctor, but Obamacare will cause many employers to dump their health plans and force many workers into health care exchanges. The bill, over 2,500 pages long, was passed along strict party lines and then House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, told Americans they would have to pass it in order to learn what was in it!

Obama’s “stimulus” was based in part on the claim that there were many “shovel-ready construction jobs” but he would later admit that there were far fewer than claimed saying “There’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”

Obama promised an open and “transparent” federal government, but by mid-2011, his administration had refused to grant one-third of the Freedom of Information Act requests. Most famously, when the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal broke, Obama invoked executive privilege to protect his Attorney General and Justice Department from a congressional probe.

We accept that politicians often “shade the truth” but Obama’s election and service in the office of the President was based on a huge matrix of lies about his personal life and the legislation that imposed a hugely unpopular health care law, the waste of billions on “clean energy” firms that swiftly went bankrupt leaving taxpayers with the bill, a failed stimulus, and myriad other programs.

The latest lies involved the September 11, 2012 attack on the Libyan consulate and the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three of his staff. His United Nations ambassador went on five Sunday news shows claiming it was due to an amateur film no one had seen and was “spontaneous.”

John F. Kennedy once said, “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived and dishonest—but the myth— persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

He was right. The myths woven by Barack Hussein Obama about his life and about his intentions, combined with his blaming of everyone and everything for his failures, are coming unravelled despite his co-conspirators, the Democratic Party, and many in the mainstream press.
