The Sycophants Are Marching

Many saw it coming but were too silent or too late in the game to do anything about it, and now the 2012 Elections are over. Get ready for Recession Part 2.

I understand how Clinton got elected.  Ross Perot jumped in and split the opposition. Why Clinton got re-elected is still an enigma to me.

I also understand why Obama got elected, and it all had to do with his mixed race. Nothing else can explain the ascendency of a young senator with no governing experience and a mysterious background, but like Clinton, his re-election is bizarre given his lack of a positive track record on anything.

It’s going to take years, if not decades, to mop up the mess that half of the US voting populace voted for last Tuesday. The only thing we can hope for is that some sentient parents are still willing and able to educate their children to diffuse the lies that the liberals/progressives/socialists are feeding them via the failed public school system.

What they don’t control is the Internet. NOT YET.
Don’t delude yourselves into thinking that they’re not trying.  The Internet is the last bastion of Free Speech.

    A quote floating around the internet …

    “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero, around 90BC

    I really don’t know if it is really from Cicero but it’s been reverberating on the internet so drilling down to find the complete and true origin might take some time.

    I believe I pointed this out on an earlier thread about polling. The pollsters were saying Dem +8-11. I tried to explain that they were right. The young are universally liberal, hate America as a nation, and do not own land lines. They learned this from cartoons, then infantile comedies, teachers, academics, and finally Colbert. They would rather be jobless then have a Republican in office.

    One of the worst aspects of this sort of election outcome is the rise of fantasy scenarios and the seemingly endless months of “shoulda, coulda, woulda” punditry. It’s almost as depressing as the election results themselves. This is not the same thing as a typical post-mortem analysis of a failed technical decision (“What did we get wrong? Why? Can we prevent or minimize that in the future?”) What we’re going to see everywhere for the next year is seccession, Third Party, abandon principles and become more like Democrats, etc., etc., etc. And not one single new idea in the whole damned lot, or at least not to anybody with many years on them, because we’ve heard them all before the last time, and the time before that and the time before that, ad infinitum.

    To quote Mr. Taggert (“Slim” Whitman) -- “I am depressed.”

    So far I’ve read about Texas seccession, Allen West as Speaker of the House, and more Third Party crap than I can count. Not to mention Benghazi hearings in the House. Ooh! Scary! I bet that has the Obama administration quaking in their boots! Just like the F&F hearings in the House did. I might just as well go to the public library when I get home and see if they have a copy of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales.”

    Obama himself said that he couldn’t really do all he wanted in his first term because of the Republicans.

    He’s weakened this time around. He’s not some kind of messiah anymore to most liberals.

    Meanwhile, the Republicans still have the House and Obama knows that this isn’t as easy a job as he thought it would be.

    Oh really ? How so? By the increased majority in the Senate? Executive orders somehow vanished? Contempt filings by House committees somehow get enforced?

    Sorry, but I’d rather face reality. There’s been a fundamental structural change, and we’re going to have to deal with it. Fantasy isn’t going to cut it, I’m afraid, although we’ll be subjected to endless amounts of it.

    Of course, he knows he will not be able to get NEW taxes past the House (even if that spineless shithed Boehner is soooo willing to work with him) so he will unleash his regulatory agencies and their power to fine. If pre-election information is correct, the EPA alone had 26 industry oppressive regulations ready to go.

    America is about to find out that despite their hardcore belief in the contrary, he doesn’t really give a shit about them. He could care less if they can afford food, gasoline, if they lose their house or, frankly, if they either have or can afford health care.

    He cares only about power. And making America pay for her sins.

    I don’t mean to be rude, but you’re not getting it. That’s as short sighted as saying Well, yeah, but he doesn’t have a mandate.

    HE DOESN’T CARE and neither do his minions. Hinderaker over at Powerline is writing that the good thing is that now Obama will have to deal with the mess he made.

    Obama doesn’t think there’s anything to fix. Mess? What mess? The only dis-satisfaction he has right now is that the ‘transformation’ is not happening fast enough. This is exactly what he wanted.

    Want to stop him? Entice him to overreach and then mire the admin in scandal to the point of paralysis. Find a pit bull special prosecuter and let loose the dogs of war.

    @ Mike C.:

    From Richard Cohen, ultra-liberal at the Washington Post in an article titled “The president who seems not to care”:

    …[Bobby] Kennedy had huge causes. End poverty. End the war. He challenged a sitting president over Vietnam. It could have cost him his career. It did cost him his life. The draft is long gone, and with it indignation about senseless wars. Poverty persists, but now it is mostly blamed on the poor. When it comes to the underclass, we are out of ideas . . . or patience. Or both. Pity Obama in this regard. It’s hard to summon us for a crusade that has already been fought and lost. We made war on poverty. Poverty hardly noticed.

    But somewhere between the campaign and the White House itself, Obama got lost. It turned out he had no cause at all. Expanding health insurance was Hillary Clinton’s longtime goal, and even after Obama adopted it, he never argued for it with any fervor. In an unfairly mocked campaign speech, he promised to slow the rise of the oceans and begin to heal the planet. But when he took office, climate change was abandoned — too much trouble, too much opposition. His eloquence, it turned out, was reserved for campaigning.

    Obama never espoused a cause bigger than his own political survival. This is the gravamen of the indictment from the left, particularly certain African Americans. They are right. Young black men fill the jails and the morgues, yet Obama says nothing. Bobby Kennedy showed his anger, his impatience, his stunned incredulity at the state of black America. Obama shows nothing.

    …On the movie screen, Robert F. Kennedy’s appeal is obvious: authenticity. He cared. He showed it. People saw that and cared about him in return. With Obama, the process is reversed. It’s hard to care about someone who seems not to care in return. I will vote for him for his good things, and I will vote for him to keep Republican vandals from sacking the government. But after watching Bobby Kennedy, I will vote for Obama with regret. I wish he was the man I once mistook him for.

    Something has changed.

    @ Mike C.:

    I pray and hope that the four conservatives on the Supreme Court can hold on for four more years as well.

    It’s a childish reaction on my part, for sure, but in many ways, I want that “majority” to really find out just what they voted for. We are reaching a tipping point in that we pretty much have as many people expecting subsidy from the government as are paying taxes to give them their free stuff. Our debt is the equivalent of the GDP and these same 47% have no idea why this is significant and what its dangers might be.

    In the end, the Republican Romney voters didn’t show up at the polls, despite the crowds at the rallies and despite telling everyone how “fired up” they were. In the end two foolish men who couldn’t keep their traps shut fed right into a “war on women” meme and hurt the GOP at the polls, In the end, the MSM did what they always did and lied and smeared and made sure Americans didn’t get the facts, but their vision of what the facts might be.

    Whether Obama is indeed “weakened” depends on whether or not you see hin as someone who is concerned about his place in the eyes of his constituents. He has proven over the last four years that he has no use for those who disagree with him -- he has vilified Republicans, conservatives and others in actual Presidential speeches, not just campaign outings.

    He has nothing to lose. In four years he could care less whether Biden is place in a position to run for the Presidency (much like Clinton could have cared less if Gore won in 2000), in fact, I seriously doubt if he cares what history will say about him -- Democrats write history.

    And I imagine Moochelle will be taking more vacations this time rather than last. She’s no longer worried about her image and I’m sure we’ve heard the last of her great concern about military famiiies.

    While Americans face two huge tax increases this year (including Obamacare), Michelle will be off on her million dollar vacations.

    The tax increases will bankrupt people who are living paycheck to paycheck.


  21. 22 | November 8, 2012 5:47 am

    @ Eliana:

    Americans have also been given a “payroll” tax cut for the last year or so. That will come to an end. Those were tax monies destined for the social security coffers. That should be expiring at the same time as the Bush tax rates (after 11 years I no longer consider them cuts but rates).

    Well, you’re welcome!

    I would overhear conversations on my boss’s speakerphone with other lawyers saying that they were so worried Obama would be defeated and basically making fun of Romney and expressing real concern he would win. What I couldn’t understand was why? Romney was an excellent businessman, and had a reputation for turning things around. They can’t have been worried about the economic optics of Romney -- so my thinking is the little libby bigots were worried that the cultist Mormon was going to win.

    Of course, as they watch their stocks tank and watch their little pet commie boy destroy their fortunes, I will step back and say “didn’t see that coming, did you?” Wait’ll they all go to sell their homes and find out that there’s a sales tax to go to Obamacare. Wait’ll they find out that there are 31 new taxes they’ll get to pay and that millionaires meant THEM.

    But I’m sure that they were dancing a jig on Tuesday night that they kept the MORMON out of the White House.

    Here’s just an example of why we lost. Here in the Florida Senate race we had a good man with a PERFECT conservative voting record — Connie Mack.

    He ran against a lying, corrupt, beltway sleaze — Bill Nelson.

    Early in the election, Nelson defined Mack as someone who just never showed up for work. How can you have a PERFECT voting record but not show up? Why didn’t Mack put this in his commercials?

I understand fully half of the enrollments are kids who speak English as a second language.

    Meanwhile, a folly called high-speed rail, a pet project of Jerry Brown, is set to be built and bankrupt California further, is on target to pull some of that new tax money when no one’s looking, and will destroy a great deal of farmland in the Central and San Joaquin valleys.

    Iran was named to the group overseeing the U.N. Arms Treaty Conference earlier this year. (Stand Up America)

    Less than a day after Obama’s election, the US backed a UN treaty to regulate arms.
    Obama delayed the talks during election season.
    Reuters reported:

    Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.

    U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

    The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States – along with Russia and other major arms producers – said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

    But the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama’s win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

    U.N. diplomats said the vote had been expected before Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election but was delayed due to Superstorm Sandy, which caused a three-day closure of the United Nations last week.

    California is a perfect example of the wages of liberalism, yet Californians refuse to remove the scales from their eyes.

    Latinos: Obama ‘owes’ us

    “President Obama unquestionably owes this historic victory to 71% of the Latino vote,” said the DRM Action Coalition which promotes the DREAM Act to provide children of undocumented workers special access to college. The group said that their big vote was motivated by Obama’s decision to let those children stay in the United States.

    And it prompted them to storm Mitt Romney with protests and complaints. “Today’s election result shows that being against the DREAM Act and immigration is no longer good politics for the Republican Party if they plan to win the Latino vote in the future,” they added.

    Destroy the nation join the Democrats with all the “minority”-”identity”-politics. If the Republicans -- like Rodan wants it -- reach out to minorities why should anyone vote for Republicans instead of the original who have invented those politics the “Democrats” ?

    Let’s start, let the U.S.A. split up in minority and identity groups and destroy the nation. Hallelujah this will work like it worked in the Osman Empire.

    Syrian President Bashar Assad vowed to “live and die” in Syria, saying in an interview broadcast Thursday that he will never flee his country despite the bloody, 19-month-old uprising against him.

    The broadcast comes two days after British Prime Minister David Cameron suggested that Assad could be allowed safe passage out of the country if that would guarantee an end to the nation’s civil war, which activists estimate has killed more than 36,000 people.

    @ Storagemanager:

    Speaking of violating probation:

    One of Mike Bloomberg’s allies in Mayors Against Illegal Guns who only left the coalition when she had to resign from office when convicted of multiple crimes is in the court system again. After reaching a deal with prosecutors, she’s already in violation of her probation.

    Court records show former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon has been charged with violating her probation on theft and perjury charges.

    Dixon, a Democrat, resigned in 2010 after she pleaded guilty to lying about gifts from her former boyfriend, a developer who received tax breaks from the city. She was also convicted of stealing about $500 in gift cards donated to the city for needy families.

    That’s right, Bloomberg’s gun control project had him working with a mayor who stole gifts for families in poverty, and even when the court allowed her probation, she still couldn’t keep herself out of trouble. I guess this means we need to give his project a new nickname – Illegaler Mayors Against Guns.

    So these people want us not to be able to get guns, while they pilliage the poor? Got it. I hope they put this chick under the jail.

    Boston — A Romney adviser partly blames last night’s defeat on a weak message. “Turnout was the big problem, since we didn’t get all of McCain’s voters to the polls, but we really should have been talking more about Benghazi and Obamacare,” an adviser says, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “Those are major issues and Romney rarely mentioned them in the final days.”

    The adviser expects Stuart Stevens, Romney’s chief strategist, to bear the brunt of the blame, but not all of it. “There is a Boston clique that will stick together,” the adviser says. “But blaming Stuart and the other newcomers means blaming Romney, so they will be careful. They know Romney always gave Stuart his complete confidence.”

    Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, the adviser adds, is persona non grata in Romney’s inner circle. “He went out of his way to embrace the president during the final week of the campaign,” the adviser says. “It wasn’t necessary and it hurt us. Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Chris Christie undermined the Republican message.”

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Islamists in the Middle East are speaking out following President Barack Obama’s re-election Tuesday night.

    The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood feels that the only foreign policy change Obama can bring is by “accepting the will of the Arab people.”

    “We must rely on ourselves and on our resources and build our country,” Issam Al-Aryan, a top Muslim Brotherhood official, said, according to The Times of Israel. “In the absence of direct American influence, Egypt can affect and lead the process of building a democratic and constitutional regime that will become a dream for African and the southern hemisphere.”

    Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood wants to make Shariah Law the main source of the country’s new constitution.

    Terror group Hamas is calling for Obama not to be “biased” toward Israeli interests during his second term.

    It’s going to come as a complete shock to the aggreived minorities that voted Presdident Pieceocrap a second term that in his mind he doesn’t owe them anything. I’ve no doubt he’s planning to bestow as much amnesty as he can without Congressional approval.

    They are going to be further shocked when the economic conditions fall even further behind. Because Romney wasn’t lying when he said Obama had no plan and that he was incapable of leadership.

    Exactly! America has been so dumbed down. I am studying the Civil War, and I am constantly amazed at the level of education among even the enlisted men. Their everyday speech required a larger vocabulary than your average college English course these days. True, they couldn’t spell by modern standards, but that didn’t mean they weren’t educated. Even the uneducated, like Nathan Bedford Forrest, had much higher vocabularies than most of the products of the modern school industry. I believe that this dumbing-down is deliberate. The uneducated are easier to control.

They want to gut our military, and Sequestration has given Obama the tools to do that without forcing his Democrat Senators and Congressmen to even vote on it. America is so screwed. 2016 can[t come soon enough, but I am afraid that it will be too late by then. It is already too late. Re-electing Obama is choosing decline and fall. When the history is written about the fall of America, 2012 will be reconed as the year we fell. It’ll just take a little while for the reality to catch up with us.

    Since Warren Buffett was so upset about his tax rate less than his secretary’s, he should be pleased to know that the tax rates for capital gains and dividents are about to go up to 23.8% and 43.8%, respectively, from 15%. So, Mr. Buffett, for every $100,000 you make in dividend income this year, you’ll get to keep about half. Of course, I’m sure you’ll have no problem with it.

    But let’s consider that a retireee that is living off $250,000 a year on dividend income -- just saw their yearly income HALVED.
