Rush Limbaugh Names And Shames Perps In Wisconsin John Doe Scandal (Audio)

download (6)

For the second day in a row, an incensed Rush Limbaugh spent a significant portion of his show covering National Review’s bombshell report by David French detailing the state sponsored home invasions (or swattings as Patterico  called them) that were perpetrated against private citizens by a hyper political District Attorney, a rubber-stamping judge and an all too compliant police force in Wisconsin in the Fall of *2013.

As Rush noted, “truly outrageous things”  went on in the state of Wisconsin that was happening “at the same time as — and as part of — the effort to destroy Scott Walker.”

An effort was made “to destroy anybody and everybody who supported him and vote for him or donated money to him.”

“This effort was conducted by law enforcement!” Rush exclaimed.

The innocent in Wisconsin were guilty because they were conservative. The left in Wisconsin was losing everything. They were losing their union domination and control. Scott Walker was decimating all the systems they had put in place.

They literally lashed out in panic, anger, and you name it to punish people who had voted for Walker, who had raised money for him, who they thought had voted for him. It was the kind of thing that Vladimir Putin does and we all laugh about because that’s what we expect in a tyrannical dictatorship like the Soviet Union or Russia. We find out that it can happen here and has happened here, and there was no mechanism to stop it. The prosecutor’s name is Chisholm, John Chisholm, and I hope his name is never forgotten. .


The judge, without whom this case could not have happened, is Barbara Kluka, K-l-u-k-a, and I’ll tell you what she did.


She came along in the second John Doe investigation, and she approved every petition, every subpoena, every search warrant in the whole case in less than one day’s work. She enabled law enforcement to raid these innocent citizens’ homes. She’s since recused herself from this, but not before she enabled all of this to happen in the second phase of the John Doe 2 case here.

In the second John Doe case, the DA, John Chisholm, had no real evidence of wrongdoing by anybody. It didn’t stop him. Conservative groups were active in issue advocacy, which is protected by the First Amendment. It didn’t violate any campaign finance laws. Issue advocacy is politics 101. These people were targeted because they’re conservatives and liberals. As I say, what happened here in not only the treatment Scott Walker got, but everybody else, this is liberalism run amok without any checks, without any opposition, without anybody pushing back, and in its own way California is the same example.

Despite the fact that there were no violations of the law in any away, the DA, Chisholm, convinced “prosecutors in four other counties to launch their own John Does, with Judge Kluka overseeing all of them. Empowered by a rubber-stamp judge, partisan investigators ran amok. They subpoenaed and obtained (without the conservative targets’ knowledge) massive amounts of electronic data, including virtually all the targets’ personal e-mails and other electronic messages from outside e-mail vendors and communications companies. The investigations exploded into the open with a coordinated series of raids on October 3, 2013. These were home invasions,” including the ones that I have detailed previously in this half hour.

This entire affair does indeed rise to the level of scandal – and there are state officials  –  Chisholm and Kluka for starters – who should be disbarred and prosecuted for what they did.

(As a conservative, I am for naming and shaming evildoers. But not harassing or threatening them. That is the left’s purview. I hope the attention that this story has garnered on the right does not lead to anything like what conservatives – including Scott Walker himself – suffered at the hands of these left-wing totalitarian freaks. If they do not face justice in this world – they will face it in the next.)

Krauthammer: America’s Decline Is A Choice (Video)

America is in decline -but not as a result of  events, Charles Krauthammer explained on the O’Reilly Factor, Thursday night. “What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.”

“We are in a position to dominate again, he continued, “but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness and he has chosen for American to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in the Ukraine – basically to make us one nation among others and that is a choice. It can be reversed, but that’s the challenge America faces.”

Without mentioning any names, O’Reilly brought up certain conservative radio personalities who were saying what Krauthammer said right from the beginning.

“They said, ‘this guy…he wants America to decline in power, he is not going to promote our best interests. This was on right-wing talk radio, and many people – including me – were skeptical of that approach. (We know, Bill.)

Of course, O’Reilly is referring to people like Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh, who famously declared, “I hope he fails.”

Krauthammer said, “this is a man who believes America ought to retreat as a matter of ideology and in part because he wants to see all of our efforts on domestic affairs to become the Social Democracy like Europe.”

“It is very clear that he believes that America in some way perhaps doesn’t have a moral right to be the leader of the world. And I think that he feels that the sins we have created in the past the injuries we’ve inflicted on others – the Iraqis I think he would list, among others –  does not entitle us to a hegemonic position dominant position we had after the cold war,” Krauthammer concluded.

Here’s Rush’s “I hope he fails” monologue from January 16, 2009 while the the mortifying cult of Obama was in full swing. You may remember the intense indignation, anger and hysteria this incited on the left culminating in another effort on the part of Democrats to “hush Rush.”

RUSH: I got a request here from a major American print publication. “Dear Rush: For the Obama [Immaculate] Inauguration we are asking a handful of very prominent politicians, statesmen, scholars, businessmen, commentators, and economists to write 400 words on their hope for the Obama presidency. We would love to include you. If you could send us 400 words on your hope for the Obama presidency, we need it by Monday night, that would be ideal.”

Now, we’re caught in this trap again. The premise is, what is your “hope.” My hope, and please understand me when I say this. I disagree fervently with the people on our side of the aisle who have caved and who say, “Well, I hope he succeeds. We’ve got to give him a chance.” Why? They didn’t give Bush a chance in 2000. Before he was inaugurated the search-and-destroy mission had begun. I’m not talking about search-and-destroy, but I’ve been listening to Barack Obama for a year-and-a-half. I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don’t want them to succeed.

If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. And I would be encouraging Republicans to lay down and support him. Look, what he’s talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to the guy, “Okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.” (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here’s the point. Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, “Oh, you can’t do that.” Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don’t care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: “Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.” Somebody’s gotta say it.

Were the liberals out there hoping Bush succeeded or were they out there trying to destroy him before he was even inaugurated? Why do we have to play the game by their rules? Why do we have to accept the premise here that because of the historical nature of his presidency, that we want him to succeed? This is affirmative action, if we do that. We want to promote failure, we want to promote incompetence, we want to stand by and not object to what he’s doing simply because of the color of his skin? Sorry. I got past the historical nature of this months ago. He is the president of the United States, he’s my president, he’s a human being, and his ideas and policies are what count for me, not his skin color, not his past, not whatever ties he doesn’t have to being down with the struggle, all of that’s irrelevant to me. We’re talking about my country, the United States of America, my nieces, my nephews, your kids, your grandkids. Why in the world do we want to saddle them with more liberalism and socialism? Why would I want to do that? So I can answer it, four words, “I hope he fails.” And that would be the most outrageous thing anybody in this climate could say. Shows you just how far gone we are. Well, I know, I know. I am the last man standing.

I’m happy to be the last man standing. I’m honored to be the last man standing. Yeah, I’m the true maverick. I can do more than four words. I could say I hope he fails and I could do a brief explanation of why. You know, I want to win. If my party doesn’t, I do. If my party has sacrificed the whole concept of victory, sorry, I’m now the Republican in name only, and they are the sellouts. I’m serious about this. Why in the world, it’s what Ann Coulter was talking about, the tyranny of the majority, all these victims here, we gotta make sure the victims are finally assuaged. Well, the dirty little secret is this isn’t going to assuage anybody’s victim status, and the race industry isn’t going to go away, and the fact that America’s original sin of slavery is going to be absolved, it’s not going to happen. Just isn’t, folks. It’s too big a business for the left to keep all those things alive that divide the people of this country into groups that are against each other. Yes, I’m fired up about this.



Audio: Rush Roasts Joe Biden For Awkward Boston Bombing Memorial Gaffe

Rush Limbaugh spent some time on his radio show, Wednesday, lampooning Vice President (Joey Choo-Choo) Biden for making an awkward comment at the Boston bombing memorial, Tuesday. As you may have heard, the Vice President had a “Biden” moment, and said something totally inappropriate to the crowd of survivors. I wrote about it at Breitbart’s The Conversation, yesterday.

In visiting Limbaugh’s site looking for something else I heard Rush say, today, I was surprised and delighted to find that he had quoted me from the post I wrote at the Conversation.

RUSH: Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston Marathon bombing memorial yesterday… By the way, Obama went out there and spoke, too.  Do you know he never used the words “terrorism” or “militant Islamist” or anything of the nature about what it was?  He just called it a “tragedy.” But the real fun began when the vice president stood up there.

Less than a minute into his speech, Vice President Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of survivors, “It was worth it.”  You want to hear?  It’s only 14 seconds.  We’re gonna have to replay this. I’m sure the shock here is such that we’ll have to play it a couple of times.

BIDEN:  Let me say, uh, to, uh, those, uh, quote, “survivors,” my God, you have survived, and you have soared.  It was worth… It was worth it!

AUDIENCE: (stunned silence)

My post at the Conversation:

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that “it was worth it.”

After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, “let me say to those ‘quote survivors,’  my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely – just to hear each of you speak. You’re truly, truly inspiring.”

The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, “I’ve never heard anything so beautiful than what all of you just said.”

He went on to describe how “the first responders” (aka the MSM) handled the gaffe, which was to ignore it entirely – something I had also noted in my post:

RUSH: He went on to say, “I mean this sincerely.  Just to hear each of you speak, you are truly, truly inspiring.  It was worth it.  I mean this sincerely.  Just to hear each of you, it was worth it,” to find out how good you were. It was worth it to find out how strong you are. It was worth it to find out how strong we are.  The audience, of course, sat there in stunned silence.

And after a moment of stunned silence, Biden then said, “I’ve never heard anything so beautiful than what all of you just said.”  They didn’t say anything.  “I’ve never heard anything more beautiful than what you’ve just said.”  Of course, the Democrats say, “That’s just Joe being Joe.  Ah, it was just Joe being Joe.”  Let Bush or Cheney show up at this thing and tell ’em it was worth it and you see what would happen then.


RUSH:  It’s fascinating, by the way, to take a look here, folks, at how the left reacts. I call ’em the left-wing first responders.  Whenever Biden steps in it or Obama or any Democrat makes a mess of things and causes an emergency, then you have the first responders (i.e., the Drive-By Media) come out and deal with the carnage and try to recast it.  In this case, the Regime’s first responder was the website, rushing to Biden’s defense.

Here’s what they said: “We, like most viewers of the speech, assumed Biden was (poorly) talking about coming to the event, rather than the bombings themselves. Despite getting flagged by a Fox News reporter, the quote didn’t even make it into the news channel’s write-up of the tribute. ” Of course not!  Of course.  That’s what the first responders do, is they keep it out of the news.  But we, ladies and gentlemen, found it.  We’re not gonna shield you from it.

So the Drive-By first responders’ emergency services personnel arrive on the scene, and clean up the mess that Biden makes. “Oh, no, he wasn’t talking about the bombing being worth it! No, no, no, no, no.  He was talking about it was worth it attending the event, that everybody in the audience attending the event was worth it.”  Okay.  Well, let’s listen again.  What is a “quote, ‘survivor,'” by the way?

Me, yesterday:

But of course, that was just Joe being Joe. The MSM knew exactly what the Vice President meant to say, and thus it wasn’t a story, today:

We, like most viewers of the speech, assumed Biden was (poorly) talking about coming to the event, rather than the bombings themselves. Despite getting flagged by a Fox News reporter, the quote didn’t even make it into the news channel’s write-up of the tribute.

No, of course it didn’t. Joe meant well. If a Republican had said something similarly stupid and awkward, though, he would have been crucified – because in the media’s eyes no Republican ever means well.

Democrats Are Telling Rush Limbaugh ‘Privately’ That They Would Love To Stop ObamaCare (Audio)


Image depicts Democrat whispering secret fears about ObamaCare into Rush’s cochlear implant.

Last week, the president said in an interview that Republicans tell him privately that they agree with him but they’re “scared” of Rush Limbaugh and the Tea Party…     (*Cough*BS*Cough*)

Well Rush had a little fun with that on his show, Monday afternoon. Apparently Democrats have been pouring their hearts out to him for years, privately sharing their utmost fears about the  impending ObamaCare disaster.

RUSH: Folks, let me tell you something. You know, privately there are a lot of Democrats that tell me that they are just distressed over what Obama has done to the health care industry and to jobs. They are afraid to say anything about it because of recriminations, because this regime fights back. I mean, this regime does not take internal criticism at all, just like they try to eliminate all conservative opposition.

Likewise, if anybody in the Democrat Party goes public with the slightest disagreement or problem with what Obama’s doing, it could be curtains for them, particularly if they are elected. I have a lot of Democrats privately telling me they would love to be able to stop Obamacare but that they know they don’t have the votes in the Senate, and I just want to get that out there. It’s not new. I mean, I’ve been hearing about this from Democrats for a couple of years now.


I’ve even had Democrats… I’m not kidding about this.  I’ve had Democrats tell me privately, they are worried long term about what’s happened to this party.  You know, I say to them, “Well, my perception is, your party’s set up for perpetual power.  I don’t know how you’re ever gonna get beat, because you’ve succeeded in convincing the Republicans to go after the same voters that you’re going after, and there’s no way they’re gonna get ’em.

“You have convinced the Republicans to go after only the independents. You’ve convinced the Republicans never to criticize Democrats.  I mean, you’ve effectively neutered the Republicans and you’ve turned at least half this country into a dependency class and you’re about to get amnesty.  What do you mean you’re worried about your party?”  A number of them have said that what they fear is that at some point, the American people are gonna wake up and see it doesn’t work.

“They’re gonna wake up,” he said.

He says they’re worried that there is literally going to be shrinking prosperity, and when that happens — he doesn’t think this is any time soon, but when all that happens — there’s gonna be a big backlash against the Democrat Party. Because at some point, people are going to realize it doesn’t work, and what this guy’s really afraid of is once you take Obama out of the equation and can’t blame race and you don’t have this mythological, messianic-like figure — once you put your standard, ordinary, everyday average Democrat in there (even including Hillary) — then it’s all gonna come to a screeching halt.

Oh, not only that…Rush also says, Civil Rights Guys’ Tell Me Privately ‘Obama’s Not Down For the Struggle’.

RUSH: They’re not these never doubtful, always confident types, at least these guys that I know and speak with. These guys have privately told me that they worry about all these divisions in country because they don’t think anything good can come from all the chaos, just day-to-day life. Here’s more evidence of it. This is a story from Black Lawmakers Lament Flaring of Racial Tensions Under Obama.” You know this Martin Luther King anniversary speech that Obama’s gonna do on Wednesday?

I’ll tell you another truth: The civil rights guys are not that excited about this, because Obama’s not down for the struggle. He’s really not. He doesn’t come from the civil rights struggle. He doesn’t come from any of that. He has to fake that, and these guys… You’ll not see any evidence of this, obviously, but they’re a little bit uncomfortable about it. I mean, the number one, most powerful black man in America is not down to the struggle.

Rush: Obama’s “Charm Offensive” an Indication He’s in Trouble (Audio)


Anyone who’s getting tired of the term, “charm offensive” to describe Obama’s disingenuous attempts to “reach out” to Republicans would do well to remember the MSM’s long history of  coordinated messaging.

In a flashback to the 2000 election, Rush played a montage of media types speaking perfectly in synch with each other in their reactions to Presidential candidate, George W. Bush’s VP choice of Dick Cheney. “Gravitas” was the word of the day. Bush needed some, you see – because he was such a dolt.

So now, we’re all supposed to think that Obama is charming the Republicans: “Charm offensive… charm offensive… charm offensive…”

Who thinks Obama is charming? He’s the opposite of charming – he’s a malicious, hyper-ideological cold fish who wouldn’t compromise with his political enemies any more than he would compromise with a dung beetle. But Obama needs this narrative so he can come back in 2014 and say he reached out to the Republicans in a good faith effort to work with them, but they rejected his outstretched hand of friendship. Of course, Obama’s idea of compromise is “My way, or the highway” and the highway usually involves a lot of helpful media coordination. I suspect the buzzwords in 2014 will sound something like intransigent, inflexible, stubborn, or obstinate to describe the evil GOP hostage takers who wouldn’t compromise with His Highness. Not highly original, and a replay of past message coordination – but it’s all they’ve got.

As Rush notes, Obama is falling in the polls, he’s in some kind of trouble, so  “here we are in the middle of March, and he already needs a charm offensive?  His political capital is largely gone?”

That’s what happens when your demagoguery is so over the top, it’s laughable, your dastardly scheme to blame Republicans for sequester cuts you are making as painful as possible is painfully obvious to anyone remotely paying attention, and your DHS starts releasing dangerous illegal immigrant criminals by the thousands. Hey, we’re only in mid-March and the Obama administration is already embroiled in several new scandals. No wonder he needs a “charm offensive.”

It’s only due to his loyal toadies in the media that his numbers are as high as they are.

And yet, some members of the media have had it with the BS. Ron Fournier of National Journal appears to be one of them because he’s been on a roll in recent weeks, reporting all sorts of inconvenient stories that don’t line up at all with the proper media narrative. 

According to Ron Fournier of National Journal an anonymous White House official told reporters that Obama’s so-called “charm offensive” is a “joke,” a waste of everyone’s time, and basically a stunt for the media. The  official made the comments after being promised anonymity.

Via The Weekly Standard:

“This is a joke. We’re wasting the president’s time and ours,” complained a senior White House official who was promised anonymity so he could speak frankly. “I hope you all (in the media) are happy because we’re doing it for you.”

(I don’t think they were supposed to report that.)

RUSH on Illegal Immigrant Prison Release: Obama Employing Tactics Used By Ceaușescu, Saddam Hussein, and Fidel Castro (Audio)

Obama is trying to separate himself from any of this latest scandal involving the release of illegal immigrant criminals from prison – he had nothing to do with it, you see, nor did Janet Napolitano. It was a rogue underling at Homeland Security.

Newsmax reported:

Arizona officials — from the statehouse to Capitol Hill — were outraged on Tuesday at the Obama administration’s release of hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails to save money as huge budget cuts loom.

“I’m appalled to learn the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun to release hundreds of illegal aliens from custody, the first of potentially thousands to soon be freed under the guise of federal budget cuts,” said Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who has long battled the White House on immigration matters. “This is pure political posturing and the height of absurdity, given that the releases are being granted before the federal sequestration cuts have even gone into effect.”

In Pinal County, about 70 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Sheriff Paul Babeu told Newsmax that the release of hundreds of detainees over the weekend was “outrageous and unacceptable because there’s a direct and immediate impact to public safety of families in my county.”

“These are criminal illegals,” Babeu said. “They were headed for deportation — but now, they have received a budget pardon.”

Arizona Sen. John McCain told Newsmax, “We’re very concerned about this.”

Via Stand With Arizona:

A spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, an arm of the Department of Homeland Security, said the thousands of detainees selected for release over the past week – among an estimated 8,000 – 10,000 scheduled for release – were “noncriminals and other low-risk offenders who do not have serious criminal histories.”

This is a blatant lie. The aliens released by DHS are criminals, who will put families and communities at greater risk from coast-to-coast.

According to Jessica Vaughan of CIS, here are some categories of detainees who were released from ICE detention over the last week:

  • Aliens convicted of drug offenses, theft, identity theft, forgery, and simple assault;
  • Aliens who were arrested and charged with local crimes, but turned over to ICE for deportation in lieu of prosecution;
  • Aliens who were bonded out on local criminal charges and were placed in ICE custody as a result of a detainer (typically a public safety or flight risk); under new ICE detention priority purposes, these are “non-mandatory, non-criminal detainees”, because aliens are not considered to be dangerous or criminal until they have been convicted;
  • Repeat immigration offenders (despite ICE leadership claims that these are “enforcement priorities”); and
  • Recent border crossers (also supposedly an “enforcement priority”).

And DHS just released “thousands” of them, including 500 in a single weekend in a single Arizona countywithout even informing the Sheriff.

On his show, Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh was incredulous that the Regime is getting away with yet another horrifying scandal.

Via The Daily Rushbo


— The Associated Press has learned that the Homeland Security Department official in charge of the agency’s immigration enforcement and removal operations has resigned after hundreds of illegal immigrants were released from jails because of government spending cuts.

In an email obtained Wednesday by the AP, Gary Mead told coworkers that he was leaving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the end of April. Mead is the head of enforcement and removal operations at ICE.

Mead had told co-workers of his resignation in the email sent Tuesday, hours after U.S. officials had confirmed that a few hundred illegal immigrants facing deportation had been released from immigration jails due to budget cuts.

President Barack Obama’s spokesman said Wednesday the White House was never consulted but described the immigrants as “low-risk, non-criminal detainees.”

Gary Mead would be a good person for an aspiring journalist to talk to, wouldn’t he?

Rush Limbaugh: Obama’s At ‘Max Damage Potential’ Right Now (Video)

In case you missed Rush, today – he was on a roll. I managed to find a station while I  was on the road today, and heard this monologue in the car, (after searching for what seemed an eternity for a talk station.)

As you can imagine, my ears perked up when I heard this – I know it’s what a lot of us are feeling in our guts, and we feel powerless to stop it:

“Obama is at max damage potential right now”, Rush asserted, “he can inflict the maximum damage possible for the purpose of transforming the country from capitalism to….Western European Socialism. He’s got two years to double down, triple down, max out on it. And that’s if he cares about the 2014 mid terms, but if you listen to the Democrats talk, they don’t care about that…”

The Daily Caller: Hume: Boehner not a ‘weak negotiator’ on the fiscal cliff, but ‘got a weak hand’ [VIDEO]:

“If you have an ounce of compassion this Christmas season, save it for John Boehner and the House Republicans,” Hume said. “President Obama is treating them as if he has them over a barrel headed for the fiscal cliff — and he does. This is not because Mr. Obama won re-election. After all, he won 51 percent, and needed the greatest voter mobilization operation in history to do it.”

“His leverage now stems from the law, which ends the Bush tax rates on January 1, imposing new higher tax rate and a steep set of spending cuts that fall with special force on military,” Hume explained. “Nobody wants these things, but Republicans, the low tax and strong defense party, want them least of all. Not only that, but polls indicate that if these things come to pass, the public by large margin will blame the GOP.”

Is it safe to say that we’re in a full-blown depression now? I think so.

Gallup’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 8.3% for November, up nearly one percentage-point over October’s rate. Gallup’s underemployment jumped from 15.9% to 17.2%

Gateway Pundit: Since His First Day in Office Barack Obama Has Hired 101 New Federal Employees on Average Each Day:

Federal Workers Make Twice As Much As the Private Sector

Since Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office in January 2009 he has created on average 101 new federal employees each day.
Andrew Malcolm at Investor’s Business Daily reported:

You may have noticed some economic difficulties across the country in recent years among family, friends, neighbors, colleagues. One sector is doing quite nicely, however, under Barack Hussein Obama.

In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.

Weasel Zippers: Liar-In-Chief Slams Michigan’s Right-To-Work Law During Fiscal Cliff Speech…

Jaw-dropping lie alert: Obama tells workers right-to-work laws “take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” in reality it stops workers from being forced to join a union as a condition of employment. Nothing in those laws relates to collective bargaining. So he’s either grossly misinformed or lying his ass off.

Cindy Simpson, The American Thinker: Who Goes Obama?

In the Obama playbook, “segmenting the market” essentially meant “community organizing.” Although modern liberal philosophy is grounded in collectivism, progressives effectively mass their troops using division and agitation. The trick is maintaining voluntary cohesion and support, in a failing economy or security threats or disasters, among the various personalities in the parlor. (For example, imagine a dinner-party-scene where the Obama-phone lady was suddenly aware that Obama-money had run out, and she was seated next to Will Smith when he just heard he would be hit with a 75% tax rate.) But camaraderie is never the ultimate goal of the host and his fellow bureaucrats at their utopian party anyway — their intent is to create and forcefully implement one-size-fits-all collectivist policies for their guests.

Divisive conversation on “Fairness” and motivational phrases such as “We can’t wait,” “Vote for revenge,” “You didn’t build that,” and “Punish your enemies” were addressed to those in the parlor whom the campaign already knew would answer “I do” to the question, “Who goes Obama?” A helpful mainstream media provided the venue, orchestrated the background music, and perfectly coordinated entertaining distractions.

However, there’s much more at stake in political parlor games than simply formulating targeted marketing strategies. Ms. Thompson endeavored to ask not just who, but beyond and to the more important question: Why? What was it that made some people, at a deeper level, more susceptible to the allure of such an ideology? She answered:

Their race, color, creed, or social condition is not the criterion. It is something in them.

Thompson explained her conclusion further:

Sometimes I think there are direct biological factors at work — a type of education, feeding, and physical training which has produced a new kind of human being with an imbalance in his nature. He has been fed vitamins and filled with energies that are beyond the capacity of his intellect to discipline. He has been treated to forms of education which have released him from inhibitions. His body is vigorous. His mind is childish. His soul has been almost completely neglected.

Those chilling words were written decades ago, yet they seem to describe much of today’s society. For a real jolt, reread Thompson’s article, replacing Nazi wherever it appears with “Obama-supporter.” Besides being a very politically incorrect exercise, the uncomfortable parallels are inescapable: both statist ideologies, besides being led by riveting personalities, seem to appeal to childish minds — many of them highly educated — whose souls have been neglected.

Gateway Pundit: Mission Accomplished: Report Suggests the U.S. Will Be Out as Sole Superpower by 2030:

A new report suggests the United States will no longer be the sole world superpower by 2030.
Isn’t this what the left always wanted?
The Politico reported:

A new report by the intelligence community projects that the United States will no longer be the world’s only superpower by 2030.

“In terms of the indices of overall power – GDP, population size, military spending and technological investment – Asia will surpass North America and Europe combined,” the report concludes.

“Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds” — prepared by the office of the National Intelligence Council of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — projects that the “unipolar” world that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union will not continue.
