The Obama White House Scrambles To Overcome Disastrous Predictions.

Submit your narrative… they’ll take all the help they can get up there in the rarefied atmosphere of Socialist/Marxist academia, with whom our wannabe dictator has surrounded himself.

They’re witnessing a ‘dimple‘. That’s a bump in reverse for Obama, folks, despite the disgustingly pandering, slobbering headlines lauding Osama… whoops, Obama… for his ‘boldness’, ‘fearless leadership’ and ‘decisiveness’. It was really disgusting. Stated somewhat indelicately… it was enough to gag any self respecting maggot.

You’ve gotta feel for them though. It’s a real rough sell. The drive bys were calling for Obama to gain anywhere from 5% to a wildly prayerful 15%, by one cable lefty with no viewership. Then, after all the Lame Stream types had exhausted all their superlatives on Barack Hussein and each other, in the light of a more sober morning that 15% approbation for the glorious leader had become a -2, as his ratings again began to free-fall.

What this should tell us is that the American people were not fooled by all the hoopla, smoke, mirrors and utter disorganization placed on display for the American people to see… and judge. All credit went to the magnificent special operations warriors who pulled off this very dicey, very dangerous raid in the middle of what has to be considered as hostile territory, nominal ally or not.

Very little of the adulation lavished upon these nameless, faceless heroes rubbed off on poor Obama. Can’t get no respect, no how. And that is the narrative. He doesn’t have anything to run on. His every move, his every act has been a significant failure. It’s harder and harder to believe that it hasn’t been purposeful.

America has had it with being lied to and being attacked from within. Tea Party?!… They haven’t seen a Tea Party until they see what’s coming between now and 2012. You can feel the energy out there. They’re going to feel it too.

The Same Old Jokes (And That’s Just The Presenters).

A regular reader of Skip’s articles, Bill Hallbert, commented that the use of the term ‘Lame Stream Media’ is too polite… that ‘Pravda West’ would be more appropriate. A good point, Bill… one that, along with some events the last couple of days, has inspired me to write this article while sitting in for Skip.

It was my misfortune to catch Bill Maher in conversation with Letterman last night. Naturally, it descended to the depths of old, worn-out attacks on anything right-of-center in a feeble attempt at humor. Donald Trump’s hair, Sarah Palin’s mind, George W. Bush’s presidency and the Tea Party were all precursors to the stage-prompted bouts of applause and laughter.

Letterman was in his element… he could let his guest gush with spiel that reflected his own views and not even have to think about asking any questions… probably a good thing, given the question put to Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) later in the show… “Is there a real NCIS?” Yes, Dave, there’s a real FBI too. And a real US government… or what’s left of it!

After mocking The Donald and Sarah Palin’s brief tenure in a state where “no one lives” (I’m sure that endeared them to the folks in Alaska!), blaming Bush (what’s new?) for the debt crisis (while conveniently omitting the fact that Obama is racking up more debt than all of his 43 predecessors combined), they turned their attention to the Tea Party.

It may have been my imagination, but I got the feeling that a large portion of the audience were not so keen to commit to the prompts for applause and laughter… to the point where discernible groans and grunts of disapproval could be heard. Maher said that he would refrain from using the word ‘Teabagger’ if the Tea Party stopped calling it ‘Obamacare’. Why, Bill? Wasn’t it Obama that pushed so hard to get it passed, to the detriment of all else? You wouldn’t be distancing yourself from it, knowing that it, along with the federal debt, will finish both Obama and the Democrats in 2012? If you were really smart, you’d put the blame for the health care disaster at the feet of Bush, just as you did with federal debt… call it ‘Bushcare’!

One thing that Maher said resonated with me, amongst all the stereotypical trash that he regurgitated. It was something about the Tea Party actually doing something, and the fact that we spend our time on internet forums complaining about deficit levels. Could that partly be because the alphabet networks are vehicles for the likes of Maher and Letterman? “Corporate America’s useful idiots”? I think I’d rather be a useful idiot than a useless know-it-all.

Tomorrow, I’ll be looking at some other aspects of the left’s control of the media.

Trump… The Patriot Favorite?

There’s one thing for sure… the Tea Party patriots are responding to what Donald Trump is saying in a big way. Trump is feisty, decisive, not a bit afraid of a fight, and extremely knowledgeable about money. And that’s what it’s all about. A total political outsider who tells it like it is and is well aware of the nature of the crisis we’re in.

So what’s the appeal Donald has for the Patriot Movement? It’s not difficult to figure out. All you have to do is look at the prevaricating hogwash we’re getting out of our leadership, as they twist figures and play with numbers in order to convince us they’ve actually done something great. I’ve looked at the numbers again and again… they don’t add up for me any more than they do for any of you. The only place in the world this kind of mathematics make sense is in Washville.

The Patriots are looking at the gentle machinations of our timid leadership… and the rotten sellout deal that they acceded to. Now, as has been pointed out by numerous conservative pundits, Boehner has given up his only real bargaining issue, government shutdown. And by caving in, bleating to his restive conservative membership that we have to compromise because we can’t get it all, he has just turned the high ground on the issue over to Barack Hussein Obama.

The membership doesn’t like it very much either… at least, the membership that knows why they were sent to Congress. Apparently, Boehner has had a memory lapse. I’m not the only one who noticed.

US Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Florida) said that he was going to force deeper cuts and ‘hold Boehner accountable for the promises he made to the American people’. Outstanding! That’s what the American People are looking for. Strong no-nonsense leadership that doesn’t doesn’t cave at the first threat of some liberal going hysterical about not having enough money to kill more babies.

That’s what the appeal is regarding Mr Donald Trump. Americans know he’s not afraid of a fight and won’t back down. So, as we go into the the most critical fight of all, forcing the leadership not to increase the debt ceiling, we need to pull out all the stops. Call, write, fax, email as many of your Republican Congress members as you can, and keep calling.

To Primary Or Not To Primary.

It should be apparent to even the mildest-mannered, laid-back conservative that things just aren’t working the way they should if we had Congressional leadership.


John Boehner at CPAC, February 10th, 2011.

What do I mean? We have outstanding leadership, don’t we? Well, we thought we did anyway. I’ve been wary of John Boehner since he was on the campaign trail. He made all the right conservative noises, but he’s turning out to be a cap pistol instead of a cannon.

The cowardly bunch is literally afraid of its own shadow. If the Republican leadership can’t hack it, let the new young conservatives take over. They’ve already shown a willingness to buck the establishment leadership, a surprising but welcome indication that we, at least, had chosen well.

It’s our own fault. We’re being victimized by our own success. We swept our candidates into office wholesale… and re-established the power of the old guard leadership.

It’s no secret that the Tea Party conservatives we worked so hard to put in place are also frustrated and disappointed with the party leadership’s timidity on just about any matter you can think of… the latest and most egregious being the issue of the continuing resolutions. While we’re playing around with two and three week extensions, part of the monies being authorized are going to fund Obamacare.

The bill has an unknown number of hidden triggers and preset spending authorizations for a plethora of as yet unnamed, unelected and untouchable boards and commissions. While we’re playing at reducing the deficit, this monstrosity is embedding itself and spreading like gangrene, like a slow poison… that’s why it needs to be stopped now.

Watching our Republican leadership reverting to their old ways is disappointing, for sure. I had that sinking feeling that I got when I realized that George Bush was not going to rein in his government or his Congress… that what we had was, in fact, a big government Republican who had made distinctly conservative noises during the election campaign, only to revert to type later.

Mark Levin has called for one of his really effective ‘surges’, where he has his audience call House and Senate members… and keep calling, letting them know how very disappointed we are in the timid, tentative approach of the so-called ‘old-bulls’ of the party. We’re faced with a 14 trillion dollar debt. Several trillion upside down this last year alone, and we’re farting around with a sixty or hundred billion dollar proposed reduction? Excuse me for saying, “What!?!”

We’ve got a lot of eager, bright conservative people in Congress and there will be more soon. I think we need to tell the Republican leadership that this is the last chance. Stick with your usual weak, deal-making, accommodating ways and we’re going to primary you.

It’s A Patriot Thing, Anyone Can Make A Difference.

And that’s it in a nutshell, as they used to say. There have been many weighty opinions offered as to the success of the viral phenomenon known as the Tea Party or collectively the Patriot Movement, which name sort of encompasses all such groups.

It’s confusing to the liberals because they can’t find anyone to attack except Sarah Palin, who seems to be the target of the day every day. They must fear her terribly to hate her that much. Go, Sarah!

The Marxists can’t figure us out because we are diametrically opposed to them and their every precept. They are simply incapable of being honest with themselves. This in turn co-opts their sense of right and wrong and engenders attitudes of fear, spite and envy. A false sense of entitlement and anger towards those more successful in life. Perennially unhappy and unsatisfied, they inevitably seek to influence those around them to their own level of self-induced misery.

The difference between the liberal and the patriot could not be in greater contrast. On one hand, we are presented with doom and gloom and ever more strident calls for more of our treasure, both personal and national. On the other, we have the conservative patriot movement where the tempo is upbeat and the atmosphere is full of promise for America.

Our Conservative Congress is starting to make itself felt and will soon start flexing its muscles. What has made the difference so far amongst the ranks of the patriots, is that individual Americans have taken up the challenge in their own neighborhoods. They’ve thrown down the Conservative gauntlet at school board meetings and town council meetings across America.

We didn’t have some big government union or other Marxist front groups with their orchestrated miniature Nuremberg rallies. We didn’t have all that government/union funding either. Only the change in our pockets.

What I’m telling you is that you make the difference. Whether on the phone, talking to a neighbor or a friend… you are the conservative movement. You are the heart and soul of America.

Diminishing Returns.

Sort of like what has been happening to the leftists lately. Especially noticeable has been the public’s tepid response to the LSM’s instantaneous and vitriolic attacks against the conservative right.

They’ve pulled out all the stops. They’ve cranked up all their cranks, of whom they have such a delightful variety. They have Marxist members of Congress strutting around proclaiming new anti-gun legislation, which means nothing and will go nowhere.

This entire sad episode has backfired on the DeMarxists in ways they haven’t even figured out yet. Even some LSM types are a little disturbed at the way the leftist press and the political left have colluded to turn the heinous Arizona shootings into a political circus maximus with all the trimmings, including an out-of-control political hack sheriff, running around spouting outrageous, over-the-top rants at conservatives.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik is as radical a partisan hack politician as it is possible to be. He had his other moment of fame with his vocal opposition and refusal to enforce the immigration law that Arizona passed. The left’s appeal is ebbing. Well over 60% of the people of the United States of America identify with the Tea Party Patriot movement.

The left is lashing out with all the fury of a jilted lover. The more the American people reject them and their lies, the more desperate they become.

How Low Can They Go? Pretty Darned Low.

The left and the ever slavish and obedient lame stream media have plumbed new depths of low political stunts. Trying to tie the Tea Party or the Patriot Movement to the tragic and senseless shooting of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

Five others, including Federal Judge John Roll, were killed. A total of eighteen people were shot by 22 year old Jared Loughner… described as a leftist loner. Despite this, or ignoring it completely as they usually do, the lapdogs, intent on following the party line, are loudly condemning all things conservative.

Hey… we’ve been this route before. The left always uses tragedy as a launching pad. Just exactly as they did in 2008. Remember? Conservatives cannot let the liars of the left spew their poison unchallenged. This is going to prove to be a pretty good gut check on our young guns. Let’s see them take the message away from the Marxists for a change.

Yes, the shootings were tragic. The loss of life was appalling. Our prayers go out for the recovery of Representative Giffords and the rest of the injured. Prayers are scarce solace for those who have lost a loved one, but we offer them nonetheless.

Predictably, the left is going to attempt to ramp this thing up into a gun control issue, and attack the first amendment at the same time. Equally predictably, there are a couple of knuckle-headed DeMarxist Representatives moving to do that now as this is written. It smells a lot like the Brady Bill redux. That bill was unconstitutional from the day that it was proposed. These will probably get short shrift also, in the face of the new Republican majority.

The fact that the shooter was one of theirs is small satisfaction in that some seriously disturbed person, whether on the left or the right, would be ridiculously difficult to spot if they had no more track record than Loughner. After all, there’s no law against being a ‘creep’, as one college student who had a class with him said. So he was a little creepy and he was prone to disruptive outbursts in class. What I’m driving at is that everybody knows someone a little, or very, creepy. There simply was no way to determine that he was going to go off.

Maybe they’ll find he planned the whole thing very carefully. But why target the Congresswoman? Who knows what triggered his twisted mind as he plotted his deed? It remains to be seen how low the LSM outlets will go to demonize the conservative right, but if it’s anywhere near their ratings that could be very low indeed.

Bringing The Party To The Republicans.

No doubt walking around, congratulating themselves on their brilliant victory, the establishment usurpers run to the microphones in a not-so-transparent attempt to usurp the Patriot movement, the Tea Parties if you will. They’re like energy leaches… they latch on and feed off of the energy of the Patriots.

They do not have a lot in common with our Constitutional patriotism. These folks seek only power and self-glorification. Everything after self is lost on these people.

We’ve pointed out to the establishment Republicans, several times, that ‘you flippin’ people shouldn’t even be here’. There shouldn’t even be a Republican Party. The Republican Party was a disaster after the 2008 election. It was in absolute disarray, with a leadership afraid of its own shadow. If it could be called a leadership.

The rise of the American Tea Party movement is a phenomenon that will be written about for decades to come. It was, and is, a visceral reaction by the American people to the ‘wrongness’ of the Barack Obama Marxist vision of a subservient and servile America, content to exist as our leaders think fit.

At first, when the Tea Parties sprang up from seemingly nowhere, reporters talked of a momentary fad having no political legs. Driven by the weight of phone, email, and visits to lawmakers’ offices, Republicans noticed that the Patriots were beginning to sway national opinion. Serious business. There was still a lot of talk on both sides of the aisle, mostly centering on how much time it would take the infant movement to fade into obscurity. Bad bet. It was growing at a spectacular rate back then and it’s still growing after over two years.

The Republicans really do need to come to the party… the Conservative Republican Patriot Party.

Liberty Rising.

As incredible as it seems to anyone even remotely of conservative mind, we watched the insane race of the 111th Congress to cause as much permanent damage to the country as possible before the lame-duck session ends, or the Halls of Congress empty with members leaving the Capitol to be with family and friends for Christmas and the New Year. We should be grateful for that much, I guess.


In the beginning... January 6, 2009.

We need to illuminate the part that Republican RINOs played in the successes the DeMarxists have achieved in this lame duck session. These people can now officially be targeted for challenge and removal. Can we do it? You bet we can. That’s the other thing that drives me nuts about the DeMarxists, the RINOs and certain really thick Republican hidebound elites… they just don’t get it.

The reason and, by the way, the sole reason that the Republicans took back the House of Representatives was the Tea Party patriot movement. We sprang like the phoenix from the ashes of our American economy to totally dominate the political scene of the 2010 elections.

That the patriot movement has this sort of punch can no longer be in doubt… ask the eighteen ‘moderate’ Democrats who voted with Obama and his Marxists. They’re no longer around.

We have told the Republicans that we will not take our eyes off of them for a second. If anything, we have to watch our own much more than the enemy. It’s a sad truth that our own have sold us out more times than I can count. We will not permit this country to slide into the abyss of perpetual poverty and penury that is the hallmark of totalitarian socialism.

Citizen patriots are still flocking to our movement. It’s truly a magnificent phenomenon, witnessing liberty rising.

Organizing for Freedom: American Majority and The New Leaders Project

 

 

Yesterday, in a bold move that directly addresses the need for unity and a true bottom up leadership approach to the problems facing America, American Majority and American Majority Action unveiled  an ambitious plan to take back America.

"On the heels of an historic mid-term election, and amid speculation about the future of the Tea Party movement, American Majority along with local Tea Party leaders from across the nation, announced today the launch of The New Leaders Project and the drive to identify 10,000 new, credible candidates in advance of the 2011 and 2012 elections.

American Majority believes that this project, when combined with policy education and grassroots infrastructure development, is the surest way to sustain Tea Party momentum across the nation.

This first of its kind national effort will seek to have 1,000 local Tea Party leaders sign onto The New Leaders Project, committing themselves and their groups to identifying 10 new leaders in their local community to run primarily for state or local office in 2012.  Representatives from Texas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Florida, Virginia, Arkansas, and Ohio on hand at a press conference this morning to be the first signers of The New Leaders Pledge."

American Majority president Ned Ryun delivered a powerful statement about the overall mission of the The New Leader Project:

"At American Majority, we have believed since the Tea Party movement began that in order for it to remain a potent force for real and lasting change, it must grow from the ground up.

American Majority, and the Tea Party movement, are not interested in change for one or two election cycles. It is interested in generational change, but for that to happen, the work must begin as locally as possible.

Today, we are here to send a message – that 2010 was just the beginning.

The next cycle begins now. This year’s elections were just the opening salvo in the long war that will determine who will control America’s future: the American people or a ruling class of elite incumbent politicians who have driven this nation down the road to statism for too long.

The future of our Republic, our democratic process, the free enterprise system and the power of the individual are all dependent on activated citizens committed to accountability."

According to Ryun, over 80% of incumbents at the federal level won -  and over 1,000 state legislators were not even challenged in the 2010 general election. The New Leaders Project takes a page directly from the Left's playbook. Groups like ACORN, SEIU and even Obama's Organizing for America have long realized that all politics is local.

Over the past four decades the left has systematically installed handpicked politicians like Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villagairosa and the ethically challenged Congresswoman Maxine Waters across the country. As noted earlier this year in regards to California, corrupt local politicians can easily become a national problems as they seek higher office.

Not surprisingly, mainstream media outlets like Politico have completely ignored the true significance of this initiative and choose to instead use it as another opportunity to bash Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell:

"No more Christine O’Donnell’s or Sharron Angle’s.

That is the implicit goal of a million-dollar program intended to build a farm team of tea party candidates that was announced Tuesday morning by a pair of linked non-profit groups called American Majority and American Majority Action."

A Tea Party leader tried to set the record straight about the goals of the New Leader project:

“Voters will have the ability to not choose (between) the lesser of two evils, but to champion a genuine candidate who believes like we believe; that is detached from the political class, because they didn’t come from the political class,” said Chris Littleton, co-founder of the Ohio Liberty Council..."

The question remains if our traditional two party system is ready for this new movement. American Majority aims to take the movement away from DC centric orgranizations and place it back in the hands of the local leaders. Power brokers and pay for play politics are not as easy once people realize that change can happen outside of Washington, DC.

 

Anita MonCrief is the National Spokesperson for American Majority and the Editor-in-Chief of a new website, Emerging Corruption. She is also known as the ACORN/Project Vote Whistleblower. MonCrief attended the University of Alabama where she majored in political science and history. She has worked with the American Bar Association’s Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative; (ABA CEELI), the International Crisis Group, the Grameen Foundation and American Rights at Work. She also partnered with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe on their mission to Macedonia as an election observer In 2005, MonCrief joined the Strategic Writing and Research Department of ACORN Political Operations and its affiliate Project Vote. In 2008, MonCrief came forward, first as a confidential source of The New York Times and, after The New York Times backed away, publicly, to expose the damage that ACORN has done to the impoverished and marginalized communities, as well as its rampant voter fraud. She also began to blog and write about corruption within the ACORN/Project Vote network of corporations. In June 2009, Project Vote/ACORN filed a lawsuit against MonCrief in an attempt to silence her. MonCrief has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including, The Laura Ingraham Show, The O’Reilly Factor, The Sean Hannity Radio show and Fox News programs. In March 2010, the ACORN/Project Vote lawsuit was dismissed. MonCrief is a regular contributor to Big Government, Hot Air, NetRight Daily, RedState, and other Conservative news websites. MonCrief and her family live in the Washington, DC metro area. You can follow Anita here on Twitter.
