Please do not adjust your set, state-run media will tell you everything you need to know. Bloggers?We’re the enemy. Your president said so today.
… now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio …
Spoken like a true Marxist there Mr.President, but i echo what Mr. Wysocki says
You don’t get to supercede the First Amendment. Not today. And not tomorrow. I don’t care how much of a dictator you fancy yourself to be. In the immortal words of Ronald Reagan, I paid for this microphone. And no pissant community organizer is gonna take it away from me.
“Somewhere a perversion has taken place. Our natural, unalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile; so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” – Ronald Reagan
To whom it may concern,
Just as I predicted, the cowardly, unprincipled leadership of the Republican party has surrendered to Obama and his gaggle of socialist parasites after less than three weeks of pretending to take a stand against Obamacare. For this reason I will be unregistering as a member of the Republican party as soon as possible and sending email announcements of my decision to every GOP member of the House and Senate, as well as to the party’s chairman, Reince Priebus.
As Ronald Reagan said in 1962 upon formally embracing the Goldwater conservative movement, “I didn’t leave the Democratic party. The party left me.” This is exactly how I feel today with respect to the GOP, however, I have no intention of joining any other political organization in its place. And while I will continue to support truly conservative candidates like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Trey Gowdy in the future, I’ll never give another thin dime to the GOP or any affiliated group. That once noble party is dead to me now.
Edward L. Daley – Independent
Many on the Right [I'm ignoring the Left on this subject because they are all lost causes in matters like this] have been going around for over two decades saying something exactly or near the following statement: ‘When the Soviet Union fell, we defeated Communism’.
What brought this to mind was reading and hearing people use a variation of that phrase these past several days when they were discussing the legacy of Margaret Thatcher. It’s gone something like this: ‘Reagan, Thatcher, and John Paul II together defeated Communism’.
We never ‘defeated Communism’.
We defeated Soviet Communism when The Iron Curtain was lifted and the USSR fell.
Communism still lives and, in some places like Red China, thrives [as much as such an unnatural system can thrive].
The battle against it rages on.
Communism is still a menace.
In fact, it is more of a menace now that the Democratic Party in America has been taken over by Communists.
I have no compunction about using that word because
Since the Progressives began moving into the Party in the late 19th Century and up until the 1960′s, the Leftist Democrats were Fascists — they had no desire to nationalize every industry and no plan to eventually take ownership of all private property. They merely wanted to construct a large regulatory state, where government kept a firm and controlling hand on commerce and took a hands-off approach to what they considered private and personal matters [such as what went on in bedrooms].
This all began to change in the late 1960′s when the, for lack of a better term, New Left [really a collection of Marxists, Maoists, Trotskyites, and all sorts of other -ites] decided to gain power from within the Democratic Party. People like the Socialist Michael Harrington fought with the more violent-minded of their comrades on the Radical Left in favor of adopting the strategy of pursuing this course of action — and they eventually won. The Radical Left took control of the Party in less than two decades. They were aided in this effort by those of their ilk who had invaded other influential institutions, such as think tanks, the Mainstream Media, and education. For years, they all worked behind the scenes, occasionally releasing trial balloons to gauge, via the reaction to them, how far they could now push their Revolutionary Agenda. It was a Creeping, Stealthy Socialism.
Go read it all. Bob nails it! The Left has never stopped believing in Marxism. They might have become more stealthy, using indoctrination, and that slow-moving Socialism Bob talks of. But, in the heart of the Left is still that darkness, that evil, and yes evil IS the proper description of Communism. It was, after all, under the veil of Communism that 110,000,000 people died last century. No, Communism is not dead, and sadly, I do not know if there are enough Americans left who know that.
Remember when Ashley Judd was a smoking hot actress? She was talented and then she opened her mouth and let her inner leftist out! BLAM, Puffy Face had emerged! And Stacy McCain mocked!
One of the important things about appreciating sarcasm is that it helps to understand intent: What is being mocked, and why? Otherwise, the cruel jests may seem entirely pointless and personal.
Here are three facts about Ashley Judd:
- She has been a spokeswoman for the abortion-industry lobbying group, NARAL. You can look it up.
- She is childless, and the failure of her fertility treatments was widely reported. You can look that up, too.
- After pro-life Republican Rick Santorum ended his 2012 presidential campaign, Ashley Judd starred in a “humorous” video that mocked Santorum by comparing his campaign to an abortion.
If you know that I am a pro-life father of six who supported Santorum’s candidacy, it is not necessary to explain why I’m so (ironically) excited by news that Ashley Judd is reportedly moving forward with plans to run for the Senate in Kentucky. A long season of mockery, ending ultimately in the “abortion” of Judd’s own campaign, offers ample opportunity for sweet, sweet payback. So . . .
Ms. Shriveled Lifeless Womb, who disparages motherhood and Ronald Reagan, and has compared coal mining to rape, thinks she’s going to get herself elected Senator in Kentucky. Need I mention she wrote a whole self-dramatizing feminist essay about her puffy face?
This — this — is “the marquee political story of 2014″?
Please, dear God, let this happen. The National Republican Senatorial Committee shares a mock Judd-for-Senate fundraising e-mail:
It’s time for Kentuckians to stand up and be counted.
We need someone representing us in Washington who was a Tennessee delegate for Barack Obama in 2012.
We need someone who believes it is “unconscionable to breed.”
Someone who has compared mountaintop removal mining to Rwandan genocide and has criticized Christianity as a religion that “legitimizes and seals male power.”
Someone who has called the tradition of fathers “giving away” their daughters at weddings “a common vestige of male dominion over a woman’s reproductive status.”
Finally somebody had the courage to say it!
Judd is a stupid woman. Sorry, I suppose that is harsh, but she is stupid. I recall she ballistic on Governor Palin because of wolf hunting in Alaska. The fact was that the wolves were decimating the reindeer population, so the policy actually was GOOD for the environment, but the facts did no derail the Ashley Judd Stupidity Express. Running on pure emotion, Judd exposed her lack of knowledge, as Leftists always do if you listen long enough. The fact is this Judd is an angry woman who suffers from Eternal Bitterness Syndrome, or EBS. She is only happy when playing the outraged victim of some imaginary Right Wing conspiracy, which also makes her delusional, and delusional puffy-faced broads who suffer from a Liberal malady like EBS are just annoying, no matter how hot they once were.
Ronald Reagan can count 40 states that still remember the Gipper fondly.
On his 102nd birthday Wednesday, 40 states – a record – have proclaimed February 6 “Ronald Reagan Day.” Eight Democratic governors have refused to recognize Reagan Day and two others are on the fence.
The Reagan honor is also a tribute to Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. He also heads the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project which asks the nation’s governors to set the day aside for Reagan.
“Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad. He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President,” said Norquist, whose project also encourages the naming of roads, buildings and landmarks after Reagan.
Here is the Reagan Legacy Project’s list of those backing–and rejecting–Reagan Day:
Alabama – Robert Bentley (R)
Alaska – Sean Parnell (R)
Arizona – Janice Brewer (R)

Kansas – Sam Brownback (R)
Louisiana – Bobby Jindal (R)
Maine – Paul LePage (R)
Maryland – Martin O’Malley (D)
Michigan – Rick Snyder (R)
Mississippi – Phil Bryant (R)
Missouri – Jay Nixon (D)
Montana – Steve Bullock (D)
Nebraska – Dave Heineman (R)
Nevada – Brian Sandoval (R)

MSNBS is a cess pool, and well, Ron Reagan is just doing the backstroke!
“Space Traders” was produced by HBO films and is based on a short story written by Prof. Derrick Bell, Barack Obama’s Harvard Law professor. Big Hollywood: Bell eventually resigned from Harvard in 1992, and continued to stir controversy. He wrote a short story, “The Space Traders,” in which he imagined that Americans would sell blacks to aliens in exchange for gold to repay the national debt. He also implied that Jews would help blacks only out of a sense of self-preservation, turning Holocaust victim and diarist Anne Frank into “the symbol of Jewish hypocrisy.”
On Wednesday former Governor Mitt Romney praised Barack Obama’s “Race to the Top” program at a campaign stop.
The Politico reported:
At the event, Romney also praised Obama’s education secretary for the Race to the Top program that rewards state education systems for reaching specific goals. “I think Secretary Duncan has done some good things,” he said. “I hope that’s not heresy in this room.”
But, on Thursday, a day later he denied this during the GOP FOX News-Google debate.
Also note, from the Politico link the different stance Perry and Romney take on FDR
Massachusetts Democrats weren’t the only ones on his mind. During an attack on Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his claim that Social Security is unconstitutional, Romney pointed out that Ronald Reagan “was a believer in Social Security” and said he intends to “protect it for future generations.”
He then added: “This came out of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and I think it’s pretty darn good, and I’d like to keep it.”
That’s an even sharper contrast to Perry than Romney had drawn already — in his book “Fed Up!,” Perry wrote that Roosevelt “set the table for the abuse of federal power, then a myth surrounding the success of the New Deal clouded policymaking and political choices for generations to come.”
Now, I ask, which one of these two gentlemen is the more in tune with our Republican form of government? Again, I keep hearing how “presidential” Romney sounds, but to me he sounds like a lightweight on this topic. Perry? He sounds dead on!
Also consider this exchange between Perry and Romney. Again, ask yourself which one sounds more
Ronald Reagan On Meet The Press – January 9th, 1966
Ah yes, the Green warrior himself, Bill Maher, is astounded when someone asks him if he is willing to “share the sacrifice” and walk the walk. Here is the transcript from Real Time
BILL MAHER, HOST: It seems like, you know, the idea of socialism and sacrifice and we’re all in it together, which is socialism is a very bad word in this country, but we had last weekend out here in something called Carmageddon where they closed the 405 and we thought it was going be horrible. But you know what? They educated the public, they asked them to help and participate, and they did, and it made me think maybe this could, crazy idea, maybe the idea of asking people to sacrifice and actually, you know, bringing them into the situation they would respond.
DONNA BRAZILE, DEMOCRAT STRATEGIST: Shared sacrifice.
NICK GILLESPIE, REASON TV: But what’s the sacrifice? I mean, just don’t use the 405 for a weekend.
MAHER: That’s true. It wasn’t a big sacrifice.
DONNA BRAZILE: But really, stay off the roads, walk, talk to your neighbor, you know, get around.
MAHER: Some of these things are not that difficult. I read in USA TODAY this week that if every American just gave up eating meat and cheese one day of the week, it would be the equivalent of saving 91 billion driving miles in a year.
GILLESPIE: It’s always great when somebody else is going to sacrifice because how many cars do you own?
MAHER: I own two.
GILLESPIE: Okay, so would you give up both of them?
MAHER: Both cars?
MAHER: Why would I have to give up both cars?
GILLESPIE: Would you give up your TV show? What’s the carbon footprint of this show? Maybe, can the world do without it?
Noel Sheppard offers a classic commentary on hypocrites like Maher, who, by the way NEVER answered that question.
Indeed. The carbon footprint associated with powering and producing a weekly television show must be huge.
It’s a metaphysical certitude that between Maher’s cars, his show, his air travel, and his palatial home in Los Angeles, he has a far greater carbon footprint than the overwhelming majority of people on this planet.
Yet, when asked to “sacrifice” for the greater good, he looked at Gillespie like the Libertarian was trying to steal his wallet.
This of course was the point of Peter Schweizer’s 2005 book “Do As I Say (Not As I Do)”: liberals like Maher are all for “shared sacrifice” as long as it doesn’t include them.
How inconvenient for the holier-than-thou “Real Time” host to have it so marvelously demonstrated on his own program for all the world to see.
Found this at The Wolf Files Amazing isn’t it, as you listen, you understand that Reagan was a man of vision and wisdom. Thank of his words, and consider how true they ring today
H/T New Zeal
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Michele Bachmann was campaigning just north of here, the Sarah Palin tour was rumored to be arriving soon, and Mitt Romney was on his way to announce his entry into the presidential race.
Yet here was another voter swooning for Herman Cain.
“I watched you at the Republican debate, and I have to be honest, I’d never heard of you, but ever since that. …” said Nathan Lyons, 29, his voice trailing off wistfully. “You say it like it is.”
Joan Silvernail, 68, pumped Mr. Cain’s hand, then turned to her husband. “It’s his enthusiasm,” she said. “Wasn’t that what we felt with Ronald Reagan, his enthusiasm?”
Those not frequenting Tea Party rallies or the living rooms and coffee shops of New Hampshire and Iowa might dismiss Mr. Cain, a talk radio host and former chief executive of Godfather’s Pizza, as a frivolous candidate — “the pizza guy” as some call him.
But there are signs of what Mr. Cain, in his booming baritone, calls “Old Man Mo — Momentum!”
A Gallup poll released last week showed Mr. Cain with the highest voter intensity score of any Republican presidential contender — far higher than Ms. Palin, a former governor of Alaska, or Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts. While Mr. Cain’s name recognition was at 37 percent, it had risen 16 points since March.
Many pundits and voters declared him the winner of the first Republican debate last month. And he won the straw polls at the Tea Party Patriots convention in February and the Conservative Values Conference in Iowa in March.
Of course, the Times cannot just report the news, they have to put in their spin on this don’t they? Get ready for the, Cain is only popular because the rest of the field sucks so bad spin
If few people think Mr. Cain can win the nomination, he is satisfying voters’ desire to fall in love with a candidate. Their passion for him says as much about what the Republican field is lacking as it does about any specifics he is offering.
See, an outsider like Cain cannot be allowed to win, the “experts” and smart pundits will not allow it. So, it is not that Cain has a good message that is resonating, oh no!
Another man I have a lot of respect for is looking into, well you know
The most measured Republican in the U.S. Senate, Jim DeMint (R-SC), says he is considering a run for president, out of respect for his many followers who are energeticallurging him to enter the race.
The second-term senator would have the inside track to win South Carolina, a key early state in the nomination process. Since 1980, every Republican who has triumphed in the Palmetto State has gone on to capture the GOP presidential nomination.
Some conservative activists compare DeMint to former Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) and former President Reagan, predicting he could quickly unify social and fiscal conservatives.
Like Rick Perry, he is an “establishment Republican” I would heartily support. No, he is not perfect, but, as my current candidate Herman Cain noted you wwill NEVER ever find a “perfect” candidate.
He may be short on stature, but he is long on redistribution of wealth! H/TBluegrass Pundit
And then they see, uh, Republicans are very good at channeling that anger toward what? Government, immigrants, public employees. Well, an angry population and an angry populace could just as easily turn their anger toward the very rich. Again, it is in the interest of the people at the top to actually call for a more equitable distribution of the gains of economic growth and a better tax system: a tax system that is fair.
Note what Reich is indicating here. He is saying that more punitive taxation is the only way to avoid a revolution against the evil, filthy rich. Class warfare was and is, one of the favorite tactics of the Left. Note that Marxists of all stripes use class warfare as well.
They also are very adept at using intimidating tactics aren’t they?
They also use this tactic on politicians who dare to vote against the wishes of the far Left, it is all part of the Socialist practice known as “community organizing”.
Aw, those loveable union thugs, Robert Reich obviously approves! And, as Brutally Honest points out, we are moving closer to some really bad things happening, and of course, THEN, and only then will the media take note, and yep, they will most assuredly find a way to blame Conservatives!
We’re on the verge of mob violence in Wisconsin
And yet the media will ignore it… until someone gets hurt or worse… and then they’ll figure out how to blame Walker and the Republicans… or Sarah Palin… or Rush Limbaugh… anyone but the moonbats in charge and the President of the United States who leads and inspires them:
The Leftist Elite has called for a rising of their followers: The Committed, Fellow Travellers, Useful Idiots, Dupes. Wisconsin is merely the first bursting forth of the this next stage of their Revolution. Up until now, the Left has been content to wage a stealth war against The United States. With the election of Barack Hussein Obama and majorities in both houses of the Congress two years ago, those leading the Revolution felt liberated enough to begin to speak openly of their goals and desires. Now, with the setbacks the Left has recently suffered and fearing more are on the way [that their Revolution is in jeopardy], the Leftist Elites have decided to take their Revolution to the next stage: open confrontation. When you implement this phase, there is always the danger that violence perpetrated by individual members or small groups of your mobs will break out. This has happened, but the Left has been aided in covering up these crimes by those members of the Mainstream Media who are not part of the Elite Class, but are Dupes and Useful Idiots, by sympathetic policemen who are too stupid to realize the threat the Left poses to Law And Order, and by politicians, not part of the Elite, who think this is all part of the game of politics because they are imbeciles.* As the violence escalates – and it will because it’s inevitable in Revolutions – will the Useful Idiots, the Dupes, the stupid, and the imbeciles wake up? I hope for the best, but expect the worst. What I do know is, if the Revolution isn’t crushed soon, there will be blood and a hard rain’s gonna fall. Could this be one explanation?
And Michelle explains that all of these thuggish, violent tactics go back to Alinsky!
The goals of the teachers union machine are not academic excellence, professional development and fairness. As former NEA official John Lloyd explained it: “You cannot possibly understand NEA without understanding Saul Alinsky. If you want to understand NEA, go to the library and get ‘Rules for Radicals.’”
The goals are student indoctrination, social upheaval and perpetual agitation in pursuit of bigger government and spending without restraint. No wonder the signature “solidarity” color of the teachers union protests this month is red.
Red as in, well, I think that is obvious by now isn’t it?
Sorry Lance, I just could not help myself, I mean when I read this headline at Ann Althouse’s blog……….
