Krauthammer Surveys The 2012 Field


He opens thus:

Unified Field Theory of 2012, Axiom One: The more the Republicans can make the 2012 election like 2010, the better their chances of winning.

The 2010 Democratic shellacking had the distinction of being the most ideological election in 30 years. It was driven by one central argument in its several parts: the size and reach of government, spending and debt and, most fundamentally, the nature of the American social contract. The 2010 election was a referendum on President Obama‘s experiment in hyper-liberalism. It lost resoundingly.

Of course, presidential elections are not arguments in the abstract but arguments with a face. Hence, Axiom Two: The less attention the Republican candidate draws to him/herself, the better the chances of winning. To the extent that 2012 is about ideas, about the case for smaller government, Republicans have a decided edge. If it’s a referendum on the fitness and soundness of the Republican candidate – advantage Obama.

Which suggests Axiom Three: No baggage and no need for flash. Having tried charisma in 2008, the electorate is not looking for a thrill up the leg in 2012. It’s looking for solid, stable, sober and, above all, not scary.

Given these Euclidean truths, here’s the early line. (Remember: This is analysis, not advocacy.)

Read the whole thing to see how he breaks down the field. And remember, it’s analysis, not advocacy… though certain fans of certain candidates will probably forget that in their haste to push their preferred candidate.

Obama’s Secret National Energy Tax


In a blatant unconstitutional attempt to bypass the legislative process, the Obama administration is seeking to impose a national energy tax via the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) [Article – 1. The Hill Newspaper: Energy Independence calls for broad array of sources | 2. The EPA’s Backdoor National Energy Tax].

Statist leftists like President Obama, members of his administration, and many in U.S. Congress do not hold the U.S. Constitution in high regard.  They do not hold average, hard-working Americans in high regard.  They do not hold free-market capitalism in high regard.  It is evident they are now trying to absolutely destroy the American economy, no matter what.

Obama and his administration hold to the belief that humankind, more specifically those in humankind who happen to be American, have caused global warming and are destroying the planet.  Anthropogenic global warming has already been proven to be based on questionable science.  The so-called “scientists” who have promoted anthropogenic global warming have been exposed as liars and frauds.

Anthropogenic global warming is a HOAX!!!  Obama and his administration are basing their policies on a HOAX [Article – Editorial: The Great Global Warming Hoax?]!!!  Who’s going to suffer from their reckless, destructive, economically-eviscerating policies?  Every American…with the exclusion of the very leftist elitists who are imposing their draconian desires upon those whom they view with utter contempt and hatred.  Nobody dare get between them and their twisted, warped vision of what their Shangri-la world should be like.

Topped by all of the out-of-control spending Obama and the spend-o-crats have already tallied up, coupled with the looming government-controlled health care legislation—another potential economy-killer, Obama’s so-called “climate change” legislation-by-proxy will most definitely transform the country, but not in the way he envisioned it to be (or did he?).  It will transform the United States of America into the world’s largest third-world country [Article – 1. Deming: Cap and trade bill will wreck U.S. economy | 2. U.S. Chamber Official Warns That Cap And Trade Bill Will Destroy Jobs | 3. Cap-and-Trade bill does nothing for oil dependence].

It’s becoming more and more evident that Obama and other statist politicians in the United States are unconcerned about the plight of the American people and those who have fallen victim to financial hardship.  They care not one iota about those who are unemployed.  They couldn’t care less about the condition of the average American citizen.  Why are they intent on driving our country into a cauldron of turmoil, suffering, and despair for years to come?  Why do they feel it fitting and proper to impose rules and regulations that do nothing to build up and enrich the American way of life?  Why do they insist on ignoring the will of the American people by passing legislation that will do nothing for our country’s economy?  Why are they scheming and conspiring behind closed doors to do our country harm by trying to stealthily slip their authoritarian edicts behind the backs of the American people, brazenly subverting the provisions set out in the U.S. Constitution?  Those questions and more must be asked of our country’s politicians.  The American people need to stand up and put a stop to abuses of power by any means, short of armed uprising.  I am afraid; however, that if our country’s leaders will not listen to loud dissenting voices and continue to ignore the citizenry, there will be no other choice but to forcibly remove those obstinately self-righteous leaders.  Pray that day never come.

Obama Reveals His Hand On Reconciliation


While it was not acceptable to Obama during the G.W. Bush years, it is now just fine and dandy that statist Democrats use the reconciliation process to cram ObamaCare down our throats. He did not go out and say the word “reconciliation”, but he did utter the words “up-or-down vote”—code for reconciliation [Article – Healthcare reform: Obama nudges Congress toward reconciliation].

In the words of Senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd (D-WV):

I very rarely agree with Senator Byrd, but in this instance I have to say he is right.

When has reconciliation been used and under what circumstances?  Please refer to the following: Read More…

U.S. House Passes Health Care Reform Bill, Ignores Will Of American People


In a brazen act of defiance against over 50 percent of the American people, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leftist statists in the U.S. House of Representatives passed the monstrosity known as H.R. 3962 – Affordable Health Care for America Act [Article – House passes health care reform bill; Vote garners only one Republican].

The snag in the works was getting so-called “moderate” “Blue Dog” Democrats to vote for the “deficit neutral” bill. How did Pelosi get so-called “Blue Dog” Democrats to vote for passage of the bill? There was certainly some arm-twisting that was done by leftist Democrats and President Obama himself; however, by simply inserting a stipulation known as the “Stupak Amendment“, which limits, but does not eliminate coverage and funding for abortions, that’s all it took for so-called “moderate” Democrats to submit an “up” vote.

Never mind the insertion of items that don’t have anything to do with health care reform and that raise taxes on people whom President Obama promised would not be taxed. Never mind that over 50 percent of Americans do not want a public “option” or in other words, government-run health care [Rasmussen Report – Health Care Reform].

Self-serving, hyper-ambitious politicians on all levels of government do not care about the will of the American people. They do not genuinely care about the health and well-being of the American people. They have proven time and again that they are nothing but a group of haughty, arrogant, elitist power and money grabbers with an aristocratic sense of predestinate entitlement.

The next election cycle is only a year away. A lot can happen in a year and those who want to retain their positions of power will do their best (or worst) to pull the wool over their constituents’ eyes in an effort to get re-elected. They know that the memories of the people they claim to represent are short. They are banking on that knowledge because it is a successful time-tested strategy.

So-called health care reform is only one link in a longer chain of enslavement that leftist bosses are forging for America. They are only a couple of links away from completing that chain. After the chain is complete, it will be almost impossible to break it.

What will you do? Will you vote for or against the chain? The 2010 elections should give us an indication.

German Chancellor Merkel And The Climate Change “Wall”


Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of  the pulling down of the wall separating East and West Berlin in Germany. For the first time, a German head of state spoke before U.S. Congress. German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed members of U.S. Congress and one of the subjects Merkel spoke about was the need for a global deal on climate change [Article – Merkel meets with Obama, then talks to Congress]. Perhaps a symbolic appeal by Merkel to tear down the climate change “wall” [Article – The European Experience with Cap and Trade]?

With support for cap and trade legislation on the decline, President Obama vows that the United States will play a prominent role in decreasing global greenhouse gas emissions. Obama’s answer to the climate change question is cap and trade legislation.

The Waxman-Markey bill or rather, Taxman-Malarkey bill (H.R. 2998 – American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009) is currently in limbo, since health care reform legislation has taken center stage. Beltway politicians have certainly been working behind the scenes on slipping cap and trade legislation through, with very little public scrutiny…so they hope.

If the United States agrees to comply with some sort of global climate change contract in Copenhagen, Denmark, this will surely embolden leftist environut anti-capitalists in America to get climate change-related cap and trade legislation enacted.

If such a bill goes through, it will destroy the American economy, no ands, ifs or buts about it. We think unemployment is bad now, wait and see how high it will be if cap and trade becomes law. In addition, we and future generations of Americans will pay dearly for the taxes, fees and other costs climate change legislation will incur [Article – Leading Climate Scientist: Cap and Trade Could Ruin US Economy | Reference – Treasury Department – Climate Change Bill Could Cost American Families $1,761 A Year].

Obama Administration Falsifying Stimulus Job Numbers


The Obama administration is being accused of not being exactly honest about jobs “stimu-less” has saved or created:

You know it’s getting bad for the most highly esteemed potentate and savior of the world and his horde of Chicago-style thugonomists when state-controlled media can’t even say anything nice about Obamanomics.

Obama’s “Czar” Of Manufacturing Ron Bloom: He “Kinda” Agrees With Mao (Tse Tung)


Obama “czar” of manufacturing, Ron Bloom says that the free market is “nonsense” and “kinda” agrees with communist China’s late (but no so great) Chairman Mao Tse Tung:

What a coincidence—another Obama staffer who “kinda” agrees with communist boss and mass murderer Mao. Which point does Mr. Bloom agree with Mao on? That it is not really necessary to use force or coercion to achieve political objectives or that one only needs to bluff a person or group of people into thinking the “gun” is not loaded? How well received would the words that Mr. Bloom uttered be, if he took his speech to town hall meetings? So how is the free market not working in communist China today? Would China be on the rise economically without free market capitalism? I wonder how Mao would feel about his precious China if he could see it today. I dare say that if Mao Tse Tung was still living and currently in power, China would still be 20 to 30 years behind the United States, economically and technologically.

Van Jones, Anita Dunn and now Ron Bloom. Is there a pattern here? Why are more of Obama’s staffers and so-called “czars” being exposed embracing the philosophies of a totalitarian communist dictator or Marxist philosophy in general? How long of a laundry list do we have to compile before we see that the current administration in place is anti-capitalist and Marxist? We should not get to the point where it is too late to find out.

Video of Ron Bloom’s full speech can be viewed below (four-part series): Read More…
