Obama’s Signature Legislation Is His Achilles Heel.

Barry has several such heels… but health care needs to be first on the list for a number of reasons. Aside from the deficit itself, which the health care debacle will make infinitely so much worse, the crushing, stifling effects of the regulations, strictures, and penalties of Obamacare’s monster 2,700 page tome, Republican legislative analysts are still finding hidden provisions and legislative booby-traps designed to make them difficult to remove.

This week, Republicans take up the task of removing this plague on the American economy. Short story is that they cannot stop repeal in the House. Not so in the Senate. Democrat insiders confidently, if a bit blindly, decry that any such legislation would go down in flames, citing the continuing Democrat advantage in the Senate.

I’m not so sure. There are 21 DeMarxist Senators running scared… that is, running for election in 2012. Many, if not all, of these people will be challenged by candidates from the oh-so-despised Tea Party on one level or another. Some come from virtually unassailable Democrat districts, such as Nancy Pelosi and the San Francisco Bay Area’s really nutty liberal base. But others… they aren’t nearly as fortunate and are already on the radar as having voted for the bill. A virtual political death sentence in some districts, so soured have the public become with the DeMarxists and their march to totalitarianism.

Some might find that siding with Conservatives is safer than voting to uphold the legislation, the support of which is threatening to end their political lives. They know that despite the frantic covering fire of the now totally discredited LSM (lame stream media) and all the agitation propaganda the White House has thrown into it, Obama’s health care takeover is in America’s bullseye.

No one is forgetting that Obamacare was forced upon us in the most nefarious circumstances possible. Close to 70% of America want that bill gone and it’s Congress’s job to take the lead.

Make Obama veto that bill every week between here and 2012. Starve every provision before it can get started. Force votes whenever possible, to make darn sure Democrat voting records are illuminated in the conservative press and blogosphere. Let Obama’s own signature legislation be his swansong.

Reapportionment: Policy Matters

Christmas has come a few days early this year in the form of the decennial data dump from the U.S. Census Bureau that kicks off the redistricting scramble. The reapportionment numbers were not only hugely consequential for the makeup of the next Congress and the durability of the Republican majority, but even a cursory look at the state-by-state numbers one sees the clearest possible vindication of conservative ideas at the state level. Dare I say, this week's numbers were the most ringing endorsement of the Republican governing model since Rudy Giuliani towered over the vested interests in New York City. Not only did the South and West win -- which liberals will dismiss as a function of weather -- but low tax states consistently beat high tax states. Not only did conservative states beat liberal states, most tellingly, the winners were almost to a man conservatively governed. 

Consider this striking fact unearthed by political strategist (and former Giuliani adviser) Ken Kurson, posted on Facebook: 

    Avg tax rate in states gaining a Congressional seat: 2.8%
    Avg tax rate in states losing a Congressional seat: 6.05%
    People vote with their feet.

This finding is relevant to top marginal tax rates, which unlike property or sales taxes more prevalent in redder states punish creation rather than consumption, but the basic finding runs deep throughout the numbers. The big population winners did not just happen to red states with nice weather. They also had a deeply embedded Republican governing model. Consider who governed in the big population-gaining states this year. 

    Texas +4 (10 years of Republican governors, 0 Democrat)
    Florida +2 (10 Republican, 0 Democrat)
    Nevada +1 (10 Republican, 0 Democrat)
    Utah +1 (10 Republican, 0 Democrat)
    South Carolina +1 (8 Republican, 2 Democrat)
    Georgia +1 (8 Republican, 2 Democrat)
    Arizona +1 (2 Republican, 8 Democrat)
    Washington +1 (0 Republican, 10 Democrat)

Collectively, that's 58 years of Republican governance to 22 years of Democratic governance in the states gaining Congressional seats. And Washington State's impressive record -- alone among true blue states -- likely had more to do with the little matter that it lacks an income tax, and an initiative this year to impose one was beat back by 2-to-1. 

More than that, the leadership of these growing states has not only been Republican, but very much conservative: Rick Perry (whose approach to luring jobs from high-tax states is methodical and focused like a predator stalking his prey), Jeb Bush, Mark Sanford, and Sonny Perdue. 

Other gems abound in these numbers, providing us an acid test on the difference between good and bad policy. 

Michigan's prevailing wage union economy has wreaked more devastation than Hurricane Katrina did to Louisiana. Michigan was alone among the states to lose population, losing 0.6% of it. Louisiana (which had to deal with the destruction and relocation of major portions of its biggest city in this decade) gained 1.4%. 

The Northeast continues to bleed, especially its dying, secondary metros. New York state, which absurdly tried to levy an iPod tax under the hapless Gov. David Paterson, limped along with 2.1% growth (the national average was 10%). We don't have county numbers yet, but we can infer that the New York City area, and especially the suburbs, were the bulwark of any growth. Both New Jersey and Connecticut, which are roughly half New York City suburbs, outperformed the entire region (4.5% and 4.9%, respectively, to the Northeast average of 3.2%). This shows us that there is still a creative class and professional allure to major metropolitan areas that can partially counteract high taxation. But what happens to the remnant, secondary metropolitan areas out of reach from New York City or Boston? There, you have no creative class and sky-high taxes forced upon them by liberal city-dwellers. The bottom line: Goodbye Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse. A similar dynamic is at play in New England. High-tax, secondary metro Rhode Island performed worst (at anemic 0.4% growth) while the Boston bedroom communities of income-tax free New Hampshire lifted it to a region-leading 6.5% growth rate. The Granite State is like a miniature version of Texas up north: increasingly metropolitan and lightly taxed. 

The Midwest is also hurting, but good policy saves the day. The Midwest fared only slightly better than the Northeast at 3.9% vs. 3.2% growth, but here one begins to see the difference policy makes. The damage here was done by both Democrats and weak sister Republicans. Michigan, which stubbornly refused to change under eight years of Jennifer Granholm, has the nation's worst economy and population growth. (Let us hope, for the sake of the survival of that state, that Governor Rick Snyder and his Republican majorities in the House and Senate can deliver a Right-to-Work law.) Ohio has the second worst, under the consecutive administrations of the corrupt, tax-raising Bob Taft (a Republican) and Ted Strickland (a Democrat). Like Snyder, John Kasich has the opportunity to emerge as a hero of the recovery. But aside from tiny South Dakota, the state in the region with the best population growth at 7.8% -- 4 points higher than neighboring Iowa and 2 points higher than neighboring Wisconsin, was Minnesota, where Tim Pawlenty held the line on taxes and spending for two solid terms. (Disclaimer: I help with Gov. Pawlenty's Freedom First PAC.) Likewise, there is no real reason that industrial Indiana should have performed any better than neighboring Illinois or Ohio other than its distinctively Republican orientation and the budget-cutting leadership of Gov. Mitch Daniels. Illinois, the state whose political leadership this decade consisted of Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama, turned in a mediocre growth rate of 3.3%, lower than all of its neighbors. 

For the First Time, the South Leads the Nation in Growth. Past Censuses showed the nation's growth tilted West. For the first time, the South took the crown this time, with an overall growth rate of 14.3% to the West's 13.9%. That's a turnaround from 2000, when the West led with 19.7% growth to the South's 17.3%. It's also perhaps a sign of the waning power of immigration as a driver of that growth (it tilts west, though heavily Latino Texas is considered part of the South). In many ways, this past growth was also because the West was the only truly "new" and underpopulated region for the better part of the last century. The 2010 Census shows the trend is definitely waning. The only state with a truly torrid growth rate was Nevada, at +35% -- but it was 66% (!) in the 1990s. The filling out of the interior and mountain West is also slowing. +24% and +21% growth in Utah and Idaho respectively show that it's not just about good weather, but those numbers represent declines of about 15 to 20 points from '90s growth rates. 

The Rise of Texas and the Decline of California. The blaring headline from the 2010 Census is, of course, Texas picking up 4 Congressional seats, landing at 38 total electoral votes. The last time a non-California state had this many was New York in the 1980s. At the same time, California leveled out at 55 electoral votes, the first time since the 1920 census that they haven't gained seats. Joel Kotkin has an excellent read on the California-Texas dynamic, stoked by Rick Perry who boasts of "hunting" for jobs every time he visits the Golden State. 

Texas's 20.6% growth off an already strong base shows its continued promise. California's 10% growth was the weakest in the West save for Montana (9.7%), showing again that even with its favorable geographic positioning, government for the public employee unions, by the public employee unions bleeds jobs and natives. Both states are bouyed by high immigration, much of it illegal (with Texas seemingly avoiding the social friction that characterizes the trend in California and Arizona). While Democrats wax hopeful that long-term demographic trends will ultimately save them (Democrats have been waiting in vain for a blue Texas since the days of Ann Richards), but they forget that many of these are nonvoters (hence the enduring push for amnesty). In California's case, counting illegal immigrants serves to prop up the state's Democratic electoral college block (without really changing the internal electoral dynamics of the state, in terms of new voters added to the rolls), while in Texas it helps add a few more Republican electors. The net effect of immigration is thus a wash in terms of national elections. 

The outflow from California can also be seen in the continued phenomenal growth of neighboring Nevada and Arizona. One telling story is that of Zappos, which moved its headquarters from San Francisco to Las Vegas this decade because the lack of a real middle class in the Bay Area made it difficult to find call center employees. 

The Curious Case of New Mexico. Here's another state where bad policy may be making a difference: New Mexico. Like its neighbors on the border, the state feels the impact of immigration. Yet its growth is a respectable but less than torrid 13.2%, almost half of Arizona's and a full seven points below Texas. Only Colorado's 16.9% comes close. Politically, New Mexico has been seen as a haven for corruption, is heavily dependent on government employers (the national labs), and has been ruled by Democrats including Bill Richardson. If there is any newly elected governor who's well positioned to make a difference with fiscally sound policies, it's Susana Martinez. 

New York Nearly Fades to 4th Place. If there's a cautionary tale California should heed, it's New York. 2010 was the year California topped out its power and influence on the national stage, and may face an actual decline in Congressional representation in years to come. New York has been in population free fall for some time now. Once the Empire State in both name and fact, Florida is now within 500,000 residents of overtaking it. New York's decline from 1st to 4th seems inevitable. 

Fish Or Cut Bait.

You don’t hear that one very often any more. Seems we exist in a world where relativism reigns supreme. A place where ill-conceived schemes go awry, or go catastrophically awry, and yet the architects are lauded as heroes, and often promoted.

We see this a lot. It happens mostly in the public sector. Private companies cannot afford to keep people aboard who, for one reason or another, are just perennial non-producers, whether that takes the form of too many absences or just an inability to do the job.

Incompetence rules in most government bureaucracies. The best are often suppressed in favor of the less competent but more politically reliable. The unions aren’t out there to protect the leaders and go-getters… they are there to shelter the incompetent, thereby solidifying their hold over their membership.

The unions are a lot like the collective communist societies, in that the leaders live well on the backs of the ‘peasants’, while the ‘leaders’ redistribute funds (political influencing). Well, the result is the same… the ones at the bottom struggling to get by while the politically connected prosper. That’s the upside down world of the socialist. The many, in equal poverty, pay to support the few elites of the ruling class. They call it Marxism.

We’re seeing more of this than ever before and we’re going to be seeing much, much more in hearings that will be held by the new Congress. It’s time to tell our Republican members, both in the House and in the Senate, that we will not tolerate business their way. Never again. I’m beginning to get an uneasy feeling about some of the people we sent back to Congress, and especially the Senate.

It cannot be business as usual. The survival of the country depends on our determination to turn this country and its entire governance back to the conservative principles laid out in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. So I guess that’s the long and short of it, Republicans… Fish or cut bait.

BOHICA!- Bend Over, Here It Comes Again.

Nineteen hundred pages… one point one trillion dollars. The DeMarxists are obviously going for a Guinness record on spending. An incredible 6,600 earmarks. This isn’t pork. It’s sausage manufacture on a grand scale. This is economics, Democrat style. Everyone take a good long look. God willing, this is their last gasp.

There were a lot of conservatives unhappy with the tax compromise. I also would have preferred stand-alone bills and up-or-down votes on these issues. But one overriding factor decided in favor of it, for me.

There have been ample warnings by some economists, whose opinions I respect, that if we permitted the sunset of the Bush tax cuts to occur, the negative effect on the nation’s economy and jobs would propel the country into a double dip recession.

As it is, the very first tendrils of real recovery have just now made an appearance on the American economic scene. Stocks have been doing well up until now, propelled mainly by corporations grinding every erg of earning capacity out of their severely reduced staffs and downsized operations. There are signs of confidence in the retail field with strong pre-Christmas sales being reported.

Yes, there are signs of life in the economy, most likely bolstered by the Republican tidal wave in November. People are just more optimistic now that they can see that Barack Obama’s march to totalitarianism will be severely curtailed, if not destroyed altogether.

Business can now count on a stable tax rate for the next two years. It means that we have these battles to fight again in two years. Better to fight them with a Republican Congress and a newly elected Conservative Republican President.

This latest, and hopefully last, spending extravaganza by the Obama Congress is just more salt on an open sore, but we cannot lose sight of the goals we have set.

Unconstitutional – Gee, Who’d Have Thought?

It’s refreshing to see the layers of the Democrat-Marxist debacle peel away, revealing layer after layer of rot, revealing more and more of who they really are. They’ve been exposed as never before.

Supremely arrogant in their insurmountable majorities, they forged ahead time after time ignoring the stated will of the American citizen. These DeMarxists suborned the Constitutional process repeatedly, in their breakneck rush to embroil the nation so deeply in their Marxi-Socialist pipe dreams. With the immaculation (thanks, Rush) of Barack Hussein Obama, the scene was set.

With the inevitable (and engineered) crash of the housing and mortgage loan industries, the DeMarxists made their move. People are much more amenable to being stampeded into doing something really stupid if they are frightened and uncertain. What we saw occur between 2008-2009 was nothing less than a trainwreck… millions of Americans losing their jobs, homes and savings due to the worst recession since the great depression.

The tidal wave that swept Barack Obama to the presidency receded, leaving the flotsam and jetsam of Marxist dogma infesting the halls of government and the Democrat Congress, whom I choose to identify with the descriptive ‘DeMarxist’.

Once the American people got over the initial shock of having our government tell us that unless we gave them the keys to the kingdom the sky would fall, Americans started asking questions and following the money. All over the nation, Americans came together and said “No! This isn’t right and it shall not stand”.


US District Judge Henry Hudson

Yesterday, we had a federal judge rule the prime tenant of Obamacare ‘unconstitutional’. What’s more, we’ve challenged Congress’s use of the Interstate Commerce Act, under which auspices they have repeatedly circumvented the Constitution using the commerce clause, garnering more power to themselves in the process.

I’m pretty sure that once the unconstitutionality of so much of what the Obama cabal has done is scrutinized it can be overturned, unregulated or unfunded. We need to play Constitutional hardball. Hear that, Boehner?

The Republican party has the greatest opportunity of our lifetimes to put this country back on a Constitutional path. Don’t blow it!

Truth Or Consequences.

Truth… a rare creature seldom seen near our nation’s Capitol. Watching the massive assault which has been launched against this nation is just mind boggling. We have the Marxist Democrat Congress, a defeated lame-duck Congress, attempting to ram through every single item they had left on their wish list before the Conservatives take over in January.

They’re not having great success up to this point and President Obama worked out a ‘compromise’ with the Republicans. People speak: He got his clock cleaned and the unemployment bone they tossed him won’t hide that.

His administration cannot manage the country. Obama’s entire government is a security nightmare on every single level. He himself could never have passed a security clearance, had one been run. Someone, somewhere, has a dossier on our glorious leader, or maybe several. Remember the Clintons combing through hundreds of confidential FBI files that just magically ‘appeared’ at the White House?

The Clinton White House was full of leaks also. Irresponsible, criminal release of confidential and secret materials has cost this country huge amounts of treasure, but far worse than that, it has cost us irreplaceable human assets. It’s usually done by ‘unnamed’ sources that feed the slavish lame stream media, generally timed to do the maximum amount of damage to our intelligence capacity.

This Obama White House has taken lapsed security and leaking information to new heights of irresponsibility. How was a lowly PFC able to access as much information as was alleged, ‘intelligence analyst’ or not? A PFC is the second lowliest form of life in the army’s hierarchy. What was this individual doing that permitted him to access so much information without supervision?

It’s tough to realize that security has slipped since my active Marine days… things today appear pretty sloppy by comparison. What I think is that the Pentagon and our national security apparatus had better do a real strip search… our State Department didn’t get the name “Foggy Bottom” for nothing. It’s long been home to leftist activists. I, and other writers who are drawn to these things like moths to light, have been concerned at what we saw as a definite politicizing of the Pentagon and the definite and not favorable effect it’s had on our combat troops.

These politically protected leftists need to be replaced. Left to spread their corruption, these people do terrible damage to the spirit and combat readiness of US forces. Just look at the Pentagon this last week, proclaiming a supposed ‘poll’ taken amongst US troops about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, supposedly overwhelmingly in favor of the law’s repeal. Horseradish… that poll was as phony as the Pentagon itself has become… with far too many senior officers willing to sell their men out for the rewards of political correctness.

Maybe the shakedown needs to start at the top.

Delusion.

It must go down in history as one of the most delusional celebrations in history, ranking up there with the White Star Line directors hailing the maiden voyage of RMS Titanic as a success, or Napoleon claiming that Waterloo was his finest hour.

How Nancy Pelosi could celebrate the achievements of the 111th Congress, while keeping a straight face, is a total mystery to me. Going one incredulous step further, she announced her intention to remain as Minority Leader.

Historically, incumbent leaders have usually done the honorable thing after such a shellacking. Given that her Congress was possibly the most unpopular ever, perhaps she thinks that the disapproval of the public aimed at everyone else except her. After all, she does retain a lot of support in her own district. Uh… Nancy, it’s San Francisco. As my mother used to say, “You could put a donkey up there and they’d vote for it”.

Soon to be gavel-less, it will be interesting to see how things unravel from January. Her election as Leader draws me to one of two conclusions. Either the majority of the remaining Democrats intend to carry on attempting to push their agenda as if nothing had happened, with no hope of getting enough votes to proceed to the Senate, or they have given up the ghost entirely and don’t care who is leading them.

Pelosi’s overwhelming desire to hold on to authority is a classic example of the dictatorial Marxist philosophy that once you have power never relinquish it, regardless of the consequences to anyone else.

Her ideology, and that of her cohorts, is demonstrated by her reverse logic approach to Congressional proceedings. “You can see what’s in the bill after we pass it”. Similarly, Obama’s statement that we’ll see the benefits of Obamacare further down the road. Well, we have seen the evils contained in Pandora Pelosi’s box, and we don’t intend getting that far down the road to discover the hidden delights (not) of Obamacare.

I shouldn’t be griping about her, or Obama for that matter. We have now re-taken the House and they don’t have the ability to drive through their socialist plans any longer. Besides, the more they cling to their blindfolded ideologies, the easier it will be for us in 2012.

Obama – A Potentate In His Own Mind.

The Obamazoids are wandering around like their programming was corrupted which, after all, it was… compliments of the US citizenry. You’ll notice it much more in places around the country other than the Marxist (read communist) stronghold here in the San Francisco Bay Area, but most specifically in San Francisco itself where soft tyranny rules. An abundance of space-trip airheads that comprise many of San Francisco’s voters along with gray pony-tailed 60s drop-out, drop-in, turn-on types that infest most liberal enclaves.

I’ve seen these types move into peaceful bucolic communities on the coast here, up in the mountains where I have many friends of long-standing. It’s a little tougher for them to gain a footing up there because most of the people there are rugged individualists who don’t take crap and know how to use the weapons they own… not that they wish to dispose of their newbie liberal neighbors you understand.

I had some veteran friends move up north to Oregon and Washington to live in the woods. To their utter shock and dismay, they found the self-same cretins that infest the liberal enclaves moving in up there. Ok, it’s a free (so far) country.

They’re a lot like Barack Obama’s radical Islamist friends, or masters, depending on how dark your opinion of his machinations is. The simile is that like Muslims, these liberals cannot live in peace with their neighbors. Not being satisfied at having destroyed the cities where their liberalism held sway, they migrate.

Obama has just taken the largest entourage of any president in history to India, to save what face he can after taking one of the greatest political shellackings in the history of this country. Obama’s narcissistic and, I believe, megalomaniacal bent has been addressed by the voters and he and his Marxist Congress and administration have been most thoroughly repudiated by the American people. Even in the face of this historic defeat, Obama and the DeMarxists still don’t get it.

I can tell them one thing for sure. Compromise is going to be a very rare item in Washington and the Obama Red House. Our Conservative Congress has received their marching orders and we have, with the innate wisdom of the American voter, elected those who will carry the banner of the Constitution and liberty, to reverse the course of the country and defeat Obama and DeMarxists who are up for election in 2012.

Hey, Obama… it ain’t over by a long shot. And there’s not one potentate in sight.

Now Starts The Heavy Lifting.

Barack Obama’s defeat was a crushing avalanche of voter disgust and distaste for what had been done to them for over two years… three really, because towards the end George Bush was no more responsive to the voters than the DeMarxist clown college.


The 'Dream Team'. Eric Cantor and John Boehner, expected to take over as House Majority Leader and Speaker respectively. Kevin McCarthy is expected to complete the lineup as Majority Whip.

The Marxist-leaning Democrat Congress literally spat in the eye of the American electorate… virtually daring us to do something about it, safe in the knowledge of their overwhelming superiority in both the House and Senate and carrying the totalitarian banner of their extreme leftist chief, Barack Hussein.

We warned you not to listen to the spin going into the election yesterday. The left was in full electoral disrupt mode by any means (mostly illegal) at their disposal, and their bag of dirty tricks is deep indeed. The left has no scruples whatsoever about using the type of language about our Conservative women that would have gotten them a thrashing by any real man around. But then, that seems to be something that the left has a distinct dearth of.

When you live in shadow you develop fears…the left fears many things. For instance, they must have a morbid fear of the young men and women of our armed forces. They have, despite laws to the contrary, consistently robbed our service people of their most fundamental right.

The left doesn’t build, it doesn’t create. It exists solely to usurp the body politic and resources of the country to feed its voracious and bottomless maw.

John Boehner laid out the framework pretty well. Eric Cantor reprised that with the presentation of the 20 points the New Conservative Congress will take on first. They already have the word from us, as the American patriots, that we will be observing our ‘team’ every bit as much as we shall keep an eye on the DeMarxists.

Once again, we hear the bleatings of the establishment types, telling us what we should have done and what we absolutely have to do. Okay, if you say so… but without what we Patriots did to save your sorry posteriors you’d be up a stump.

What’s going to happen is that they are going to try and dominate us and go right back to ‘getting business done as usual’. Well, we got you here and we can remove you just as easily. We’ve amply proven that. Look at some of the ‘Blue Dogs’. They got taken down simply for being Democrat.

No, you can’t dominate the Patriot movement… just as soon try and go out and herd cats. But we can, and we will dominate you. You see, we know the dirty little secret, don’t we? The power rests with us, not you.

The Incredible Vanishing Congress.

Congress might have been able to clear Washington faster in the face of something like the bubonic plague, but not by much. Washington is political poison for Democrats. They chose to leave town without addressing the extension of the Bush tax cuts. Not that their reception will be that much better out in their districts.

People, many people who have never before participated in the political process, are energized… not in the sense of Obama’s vacant-eyed, vacuous-expressioned, mind-numbed robots, parroting glitzy slogans without meaning to other mind-numbed robots.

These people are not just energized. They have seen the threat to this country and have taken up the challenge. They have become more politically aware and have joined other constitutional patriots in what has become the most powerful political influence in the nation. This is not a third party. These are individual citizens deciding that we’ve had enough and we’re not going to take it any more.

The DeMarxists, and some eight or nine Republicans, are not going to be pleased with the reception awaiting them in their districts. What is incredible to me is that these politicians (Congress), who were hired for but one reason, to do the will of the people under the Constitution of the United States of America, have been able to wall off the voices of American citizens while pursuing policies of personal aggrandizement and enrichment, at the expense of the American citizen. And we let them get away with it.

You see, I’m one of those people who believe that we’ve just plain gone to sleep at the switch. We did it over and over again, time after time, lulled to sleep by the siren song of leftist agitprop and the promise of impossible dreams and empty promises.

This upcoming election is going to present us with clearly defined choices. We can vote for freedom and a return to a Constitutional Republic. Or we can vote to destroy the greatest beacon of freedom the world has ever seen forever. Because if we were to lose, that beacon just might be extinguished permanently. It’s an easy choice.
