Friday Afternoon Roundup – Romney Don’t Run

MYTHS AND FACTS

Israel is fighting an enemy that insists on having all the advantages of a state and statelessness with none of the disadvantages. The PLO/Hamas unity government is a state when it wants something from the United Nations or the United States, but it’s not a state when it comes to taking responsibility. The Muslims who live in Gaza and the West Bank are considered citizens when it comes to having political rights, but not when it comes to taking responsibility for the consequences of their political decisions.

Their votes are to be taken seriously, but once those votes lead to war they are no longer responsible.

The Palestinian Authority is a state when it comes to its territorial claims, but not a state when it insists on open borders with Israel while claiming that any Israeli border security is a violation of its rights.

 So there’s Barack Obama, the White House occupant.

And there’s also Barack Obama, the brand, who is owned by OFA, which is just the Obama campaign.

And it’s not always clear which Obama is Obamaing it up, especially when he’s flying to fundraise using Air Force One, but we shouldn’t ask about that because then @BarackObama might call us racist, which Barack Obama might or might not disagree with…

Hillary’s Hard Choices is a $10 Million Loss for Publisher – Paying her a $14 million advance for a badly ghostwritten book about the time she did nothing as Secretary of State proved to be a really bad choice.

THE NEW REALITY

Obama is an ideological interventionist, not a nationalist interventionist. And despite his multilateralist rhetoric, he isn’t your usual globalist either. Instead he uses national and international power as platforms for pursuing ideological goals without any regard to national or international interests.

He will use national and international institutions to promote LGBT rights or Green Energy. He won’t however get involved in actively using them for national security unless he absolutely has to in order to protect his own political power.

To a transnational mindset, institutions exist to promote issues. America is only of value to the extent that it can promote the left’s agenda.

The Stoned President

by Burt Prelutsky on Friday, July 11th, 2014

This is article 988 of 988 in the topic Obama

It wasn’t that long ago that a prospective Supreme Court justice was blackballed because he had occasionally smoked marijuana while in college. Although it seems as if it happened a hundred years ago, it wasn’t that long until we elected Bill Clinton, who admitted he had smoked pot, but lied about never having inhaled. That’s like saying you ate a T-bone steak, but didn’t swallow.

We then elected Barack Obama who not only smoked the shit on a regular basis, but bragged about it in his autobiography. All along, I had thought that all of his obvious problems were the result of his having been abandoned as a child by his mother, father and stepfather, and left to be raised by communist grandparents and a sexual pervert, Frank Marshall, who served as a mentor to young Barack.

However, now that medical research has linked marijuana not only to a diminished mental capacity, but to schizophrenia, I have had to revise my diagnosis. It’s just possible that marijuana played an equally large role in the stoner’s turning out to be such a lousy excuse for a president.

Considering the way he has constantly fed us one whopper after another, I find it surprising that we haven’t begun to see those old posters of Richard Nixon captioned “Would You Buy a Used Car From This Man?” popping up bearing Obama’s likeness.

What do you think the odds are that Ahmed Abu Khattallah, the captured Benghazi terrorist, will blame the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his three colleagues on a spontaneous uprising over a certain video when he finally testifies in a New York court? After which, Obama will grant him executive clemency and send him back to Libya when it’s discovered that Khattallah is suffering from inoperable cancer.

If you’re one of those parents who are mortgaging their home in order to subsidize your kid’s college education, you might be interested to discover that UCLA coughed up $300,000 and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, ponied up $225,000, in order to get Hillary Clinton to give one of her brain-numbing speeches on campus.

Thanks to Hillary Clinton using her book tour as the first step in her 2016 presidential campaign, things are heating up even earlier than usual. With an eye on the Republican ticket, I would say, based on my recent poll, that I have a better chance of winding up as the GOP nominee than either Jeb Bush or Chris Christie. Having said that, I still prefer to see a governor at the top of the ticket. That’s because the office calls for someone with executive experience. And as much as we might like and admire certain senators, congressmen and even a retired surgeon, I don’t believe that voting, giving speeches or removing a gallbladder provides the necessary prerequisites.

Of course, living in California as I do, I am merely judging governors on the basis of rumor.

DOUBLING DOWN ON A NATIONAL DISASTER: Michelle Obama calls for a woman president ASAP

by Stephen Levine on Saturday, June 28th, 2014

This is article 26 of 27 in the topic 2016 Elections

>Doubling down on a national disaster …

Funny, it is the progressive socialist democrats who are pushing the idea that it is time that the nation elect a woman to the Presidency – mostly driven by the same “it would be historic” meme that gave us the most incompetent, corrupt, detached, and divisive president, Barack Obama, in the history of the United States. And, of course, it is ironic that the words would be spoken by the wife of that incompetent, corrupt, detached, and divisive president, Michelle Obama. A women controlled, as much as her husband, by the evil genius puppet-master behind the curtain, Valerie Jarrett.

Michelle Obama: Woman President “As Soon As Possible”

ROBIN ROBERTS, ABC NEWS: We have Nancy Pelosi that was up here. We have women at the Supreme Court. And there are many feeling that if we’re going to talk about leadership, and that’s what we’re doing here, that a woman president is part of that and what example that would set for your girls and for young boys and for all of us. Do you foresee that happening and when should that happen?

FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA: That should happen as soon as possible. I think this country is ready. This country is ready for anyone who can do the job and what we have learned is that the person who can do the job doesn’t have a particular race or gender or background or socioeconomic status. The person who should do the job is the person who is most qualified and I think that we have some options, don’t we?

Did anyone notice that the kidnappers continued on their killing spree, especially Christians, and went on to kidnap more than 100 additional girls after this progressive socialist democrat airhead confused a hashtag with military action.

>It’s not a competent woman they want, they want a progressive socialist democrat woman to continue the destruction of America …   

Capture10-22-2009-8.16.53 PM

Consider what these two women, long-regarded as front-runners in democrat circles, have in common other than corruption, cronyism, a history of repeated and provable lies, and a vagina …

  • Hillary Rodham Clinton
  • Elizabeth Warren

As if you didn’t see this coming. Both are radical socialists who live in an unreal world of “do as I say, don’t do as I do.” And, both have campaigned hard and long on the divisive theme that there are large minority populations who are victims of the system and who need the type of wealth-redistribution, reparations and affirmative action that only a bigger government can provide.

Both are rich – Elizabeth Warren not so much as Hillary Clinton – but they deny or downplay their wealth as they waffle on-and-on about income inequality.

Bottom line …

Capture8-30-2010-1.57.52 PM

Do not be fooled by the false choice – historic or otherwise – posed by the progressive socialist democrats who have become the neo-communist party in the United states. They are not suggesting that the nation needs a conservative woman president, the are telling you that the nation needs a radical progressive socialist democrat woman for president.

Friday Afternoon Roundup – Can’t Miss

by Daniel Greenfield on Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Tom Trento’s amazing team have put together another video on my article, The Innocence of Hillary.

A FEW QUICK THOUGHTS ON COCHRAN

1. Beating a Senate incumbent is still really hard. Even when the votes go your way, the incumbents have any number of dirty options at their disposal. It happened in Alaska. Now it happened again.

The system itself is corrupt and winning an election means beating the system. The bigger the election, the harder the system pushes back. It’s an elastic effect. Scale that up and you can see how hard winning the White House becomes.

This is why the left started at the bottom. It’s much easier to take over organizations from the top than the bottom. You have to become the system before you can beat the system.

2. The Tea Party brand has been severely damaged. That is to be expected. Even the left doesn’t stick with a brand. It uses innumerable front groups. The Tea Party brand should be retained as feeders for recruitment, but it might be wiser to route actual work through groups branded with names like “Reform” and “Change”.

And that takes me to…

3. The ongoing problem on the right is that it talks ‘extremist’ and legislates ‘moderate’ while the left talks ‘moderate’ and legislates ‘extremist’.

That’s a big part of why Obama is in the White House and conservatives are still struggling to make headway.

Obama isn’t in the White House because Americans woke up Communist one morning. I know that “Free Stuff” is a popular theory, but people always liked free stuff. The larger welfare population helped shift the balance, but if Obama had been a non-viable candidate, there would have been no balance to shift and it would have done him as much good as it did Jesse Jackson or Dukakis.

Obama is in office because much of the country believes that he is a moderate and a centrist.

The left can get away with it because it talks centrist and lives radical. If the right is ever going to do better than another liberal Republican, its candidates are going to have to talk like liberal Republicans while legislating well to the right.

It is doable. Rand Paul has been doing the talking part well enough. Unfortunately he talks the talk so well because he actually is well to the left.

And that’s the bigger problem.

Lefty candidates can have a certain amount of trust from the base because they are committed to an ideology. Obama’s supporters knew that he was for gay marriage and racial polarization no matter what he said. The right needs candidates who are ideologically committed so that trust stops being an issue.

NOT A ONE

There can be no conservative case for amnesty because there is no such thing as a conservative case for a policy that will not have a conservative outcome.

The only meaningful argument for a policy is based on outcomes.

If the outcome of a conservative policy is more liberalism, it was never a conservative policy to begin with. That is the simplest and most reliable acid test of any “conservative” policy agenda.

Hillary’s War on Women

by Daniel Greenfield on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

This is article 8 of 8 in the topic War on Women

When the Roman Polanski rape case resurfaced, Whoopi Goldberg coined the term “rape-rape” to describe the difference between the kind of rape she opposed and the kind she was okay with because it had been perpetrated by someone she liked.

In the political world the cases of Clarence Thomas and Bill Clinton showed how liberals delineated between the sexual harassment of men they approved of and disapproved of. Now the “Rape Rape” distinction is back with Bill’s wife.

Last week liberal activists were denouncing George Will for questioning the lack of due process for accused rapists on campus. Then the Washington Free Beacon posted a tape in which Hillary Clinton had a good laugh discussing how she freed a child rapist that she knew was guilty from prison.

Hillary had become the Democratic Party’s official “Role Model for Women” through her willingness to stand by her powerful husband during his affairs, cover up his sexual harassment of other women and even target those women for daring to speak out against her husband.

Now the face of the Democratic Party’s bid to make feminist history in 2016 was caught on tape cheerfully recollecting how she accused a 12-year-old girl, in formal legal language, of being a mentally ill slut. Or as the Washington Post’s Melinda Henneberger put it, “The ‘little bit nutty, little bit slutty’ defense has a long, ugly history. It’s jarring to see it trotted out against a kid by a future feminist icon.”

Suddenly the social justice warriors who were denouncing due process, such as access to legal counsel, for campus rapists being tried by student committees, became big fans of due process for rapists.

As with Whoopi Goldberg, it was all about who was doing the raping and who the rapist’s lawyer was.

Amanda Marcotte, of Slate and The Daily Beast, as well a blogger for John Edwards, another noted defender of women, had called critics of the Duke Lacrosse case “rape-loving scum” and suggested that George Will was a “rape apologist” for questioning some questionable rape cases.

But when Hillary Clinton was outed as a “rape apologist” and “rape-loving scum”, Amanda became a “rape apologist” explaining why being “rape-loving scum” was actually a good thing.

“Hillary Clinton Knows Rape Is No Laughing Matter”, she wrote, describing a tape in which Hillary Clinton is laughing while talking about rape.

With a desperation only previously known to members of the Communist Party after Khrushchev had denounced Stalin, Amanda explained that Hillary Clinton might have called a 12-year-old victim of child rape a mentally ill slut, but it wasn’t her fault.

It was society’s fault.

“While it’s always unpleasant to hear defense attorneys try to sow doubt about an accuser’s trustworthiness, the blame for this should not lay on the shoulders of those who have an obligation to defend their clients. The blame should lay on society for perpetuating the myth that false accusations are common” she wrote.

Don’t blame Hillary Clinton for her horrible evil lie about a raped little girl. Blame a society that gave Hillary the idea that she could get away with it.

This is a good defense because it can be used for any of the many lies told by Hillary Clinton. Don’t blame her for lying about landing in Bosnia under sniper fire.

How Hillary Clinton has poorly treated Secret Service Agents

by John Lott on Thursday, June 19th, 2014

This is article 25 of 27 in the topic 2016 Elections

How someone treats low level people often tells you a lot about a person.  From the UK Daily Mail:

If Hillary Clinton runs, and wins the Presidential race in 2016, the Republicans won’t be the only ones with trepidation. The Secret Service, who have tangled with Hillary since she became First Lady in 1993, will also be quaking in their lace-ups. Hillary has been known to hurl a book at the back of the head of one agent driving her in the Presidential limo accusing him of eavesdropping, forget her ps and qs by never thanking her protectors and lob profanity-laced orders when she just wanted the agents to carry her bags – a job not on agents’ ‘to do’ list.’Stay the f**k away from me! Just f*****g do as I say!!!’ she is quoted as saying to an agent who refused to carry her luggage in the book Unlimited Access by FBI agent Gary Aldridge. . . .
Emmett launches a stinging attack on the Clinton administration staff he used to protect – branding them arrogant and claiming that ex-First Lady Hillary Clinton was aloof. He tells how Hillary never said ‘thank you’ to agents . . . .

President Hillary? No way! She should be done

by Lloyd Marcus on Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

This is article 24 of 27 in the topic 2016 Elections

I could not believe what I had just heard on my TV. I was outraged. I was angry. Is this woman a complete idiot or is she the most condescending, arrogant and self-serving politician on the planet? This was my reaction upon hearing Hillary Clinton say regarding the Taliban five, “These five guys are not a threat to the United States.” http://bit.ly/1kqNFMa

This statement alone should disqualify a Hillary Clinton presidency from ever seeing the light of day. There are only two reasons that she would make such an absurd statement; both are pretty scary coming from the possible leader of the free world.

Reason number one: Hillary truly is clueless and has totally bought into Obama’s false narrative which says because Osama is dead terrorism is over. Numerous attacks which include the Boston Marathon bombing and the attack on our U.S. Consulate in Benghazi prove Obama’s narrative is nothing more than a self-serving political lie. Do you see a pattern with this Administration; Obama, Hillary and company?

The second reason for Hillary making such an obviously insane statement is she assumes the American people are idiots. Low-info voters. Clueless. Talk about in your face disrespect. My goodness, this woman is so offensively arrogant and superior minded that she believes she can look into the TV camera and tell us it is sunny in the midst of a thunder storm.

Please forgive me if you think I am making too big of a deal about this. But folks, Hillary’s statement speaks volumes about who she is and who she thinks we are. For crying out loud, experts and politicians across the board are expressing bipartisan enormous concern, fear and outrage over Obama releasing these five Taliban generals. http://bit.ly/SQemU0

A majority of the American people know Obama made a horrible deal and are concerned about national security and more terrorist attacks. http://politi.co/1liCBWc Everyone, I repeat everyone, knows we are less safe.

And yet, the person who seeks to become our new Commander-in-Chief says, chill out, releasing the worst-of-the-worst terrorists and providing them aid and comfort is no big deal.

In my way of thinking, this exposure of Hillary’s mindset should immediately disqualify this either extremely naïve liberal or off-the-chain arrogant person from ever moving back into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Because he is black, Americans suffer and die

by Lloyd Marcus on Thursday, June 12th, 2014

This is article 981 of 988 in the topic Obama

Clearly, no amount of unprecedented unlawful power grabs, narcissistic behavior, blatant lies http://bit.ly/1bIzuBy, and ignoring of the Constitution will sway the mainstream media and the Democrats from their loyalty to Obama. Why? The answer is Obama is black, which makes him their ultimate weapon of mass destruction able to nuke traditional America. Obama’s mission is to cram his radical socialist/progressive dream for America down our throats.

Obama’s reign of terror is but a mere preview of things to come if the MSM and Democrats are successful in duping Americans into handing Hillary Clinton the keys to the Oval Office. Just as Obama has ruled as America’s first king, Hillary will be our first Queen. Anyone who dares to criticize or oppose Queen Hillary’s radical liberal agenda will be branded a sexist and severely punished – subjected to a high tech lynching, their politically battered carcasses left on public display to ward off other outspoken conservatives/Republicans.

The frightening inconvenient truth is the MSM, Democratic Party, and Obama consider American suffering and loss of life acceptable collateral damage to protect Obama and implement his agenda. His black skin provides Obama perfect political cover, similar to an impenetrable suit-of-armor, providing the Left with a unique golden opportunity to implement all of their unsellable liberal utopian fantasies. The best interest of the American people even takes a backseat to the Left’s and Obama’s obsession with appeasing our enemies.

Please allow me to recap incidents over the past 5 years which confirm that Team Obama (the MSM and Democrats) believes protecting their golden child and his agenda despicably trumps American lives.

While this first example is before his presidency, it does illustrate the cold, callous political calculating nature of Obama, the man. As an Illinois Senator, Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act “three” times. http://bit.ly/1hgh1ll The law would authorize hospital staff to provide medical assistance and try to save the lives of babies who miraculously survive abortions. Before the law, hospital staff was legally forced to simply place the baby into a room until it died. To secure the radical feminist vote, Obama insidiously voted against allowing staff to assist these feisty infant survivors – acceptable collateral damage to furthering his political ambitions.

Following the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving Boston Marathon bomber, Obama’s DOJ immediately took actions which suppressed vital intelligence gathering. http://bit.ly/TirvFW Why would Obama so swiftly end all questioning of the Muslim terrorist regarding future planned attacks on America? Unconscionably, protecting Obama’s false narrative that terrorism is no longer a threat overrides national security (American lives).

Four Americans, including our brutally tortured U.S. Ambassador, Chris Stevens, were killed during an Al-Qaeda terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Obama administration’s behavior before and after the attack is the epitome of cold, hardhearted political cover-up and posturing.

In a nutshell, the Administration denied Ambassador Stevens’ desperate pleas for extra security before the attack. Following the attack, the Administration blatantly lied to the American people about the cause of the attack.

In a cold, calculated act of political deceit, Secretary of State at the time Hillary Clinton lied to the parents of the victims while looking them in the eye and shaking their hands.

Hillary relates to the working class: We were ‘dead broke’ after leaving the White House

by Doug Powers on Thursday, June 12th, 2014

This is article 31 of 31 in the topic Past US Presidents

Setting the stage for the “we know what it’s like to be you” portion of a possible Hillary campaign launch next year is under way:

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said in an interview airing tonight on ABC.

“We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

“Bill has worked really hard — and it’s been amazing to me — he’s worked very hard. First of all, we had to pay off all our debts, which was, you know, he had to make double the money because of obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members.”

Maybe Bob Bennett didn’t work for free, but how you could ever go broke while possessing this kind of cattle futures acumen is beyond me.

Here’s a detail to which the proletariat can certainly relate:

The Clintons actually had a helping hand as they got their financial lives in order. Wealthy Clinton pal Terry McAuliffe (now governor of Virginia) loaned them $1.3 million for the purchase of their $1.7 million Chappaqua home.

They’re just like us!

Here’s how Hillary’s life story begins:

Related flashback post here.

Update:

A reminder that it didn’t take Bill and Hillary long to pull themselves up by our bootstraps after leaving the White House:

Sean Davis @seanmdav

“The Clintons got rich quick after leaving the WH, pulling in $111 million in total income from 2000-2007.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0408/9393.html

Hillary’s decision to testify before Benghazi committee will depend on ‘how they conduct themselves’

by Doug Powers on Thursday, June 12th, 2014

This is article 244 of 244 in the topic Congressional Investigations

Be a nice, polite select Benghazi committee with no interest in flipping over any more rocks that could makes waves for “Hillary 2016″ and maybe she’ll comply with a subpoena to testify. Maybe:

In the interview, Sawyer also asked about the new congressional committee that will examine the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton did not say definitively whether or not she will testify before the new committee if called to do so.

“That’s going to be up to the people running the hearing,” she said. “We’ll see what they decide to do, how they conduct themselves, whether or not this is, you know, one more travesty about the loss of four Americans, or whether this is, in the best tradition of the Congress, an effort to figure out how – what we can do better.”

In other words, if anybody on the committee wants to ask Hillary a question they’ll have to put on a disguise and show up at one of her book signings.
