The Shield Maiden Of Chappaqua

Big Media finally caught up with us. On one very important issue (that being on how to build and grow a political party) one Big Media – ceaselessly pro-Obama – outlet has finally caught up with us.

For years we explained (see, “Mistake In ’08″ Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII, and the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV) that to build and grow a political party you first gather a core constituency then slowly grow the party by the addition of like-minded individuals and groups which share those interests of the core constituency.

The modern Democratic Party built by Franklin Delano Roosevelt had as a core constituency the white working class. This working class provided the party of FDR with guideposts on policy and guided the party in everything it did. The working class core of the party was white because it reflected the same characteristics as the general population.

Over the years groups were added to the FDR coalition. Senior citizens joined in on the coalition attracted by promises such as “Social Security”. In the 1960s John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a Boston Brahmin added black Americans into the Democratic Party fold with some deft politicking (and his father’s vast wealth) which smudged away the racist past of the party. JFK grew the Democratic Party by addition not subtraction.

In 2008, Barack Obama and assorted kooks decided to purposefully destroy the Democratic Party of FDR. Barack Obama and these kooks willfully embraced the idea of the new “coalition of the ascendant”. This “coalition of the ascendant” and their interests – which conflicted with the interests of the FDR coalition – made it necessary to kick out core Democratic Party constituencies such as senior citizens and the white working class.

The Barack Obama coalition slogan was a variation of the race riot 1960s slogan “burn, baby, burn”. The new Barack Obama Dimocratic Party was to be built on the embers of the burnt down FDR Democratic Party. The new Obama Dimocratic Party was to be guided by the vanguard of the proletariat which vaingloriously named itself the “creative class”.

The “creative class” leaders of the new Dimocratic Party “coalition of the ascendant” and their supreme leader Barack Obama resembled cartoonish Marxism-Leninism faculty lounge players of a bygone era. They railed against the “unitary executive” and promised a democratic revolution wherein the “masses” would have control and their new future would be filled with freedom and the fulfillment of all their desires.

The new Barack Obama Dimocratic Party achieved success on the basis of much of the successes of their old time bygone era communist parties and mass movement follies predecessors. The most important reason was their control of the organs of propaganda. Big Media helped propagandize the “masses” in this Mickey Mouse buffoon opera.

Next, the “creative class” utilized a variant of “agit-prop” from the same left/Marxist playbook. The agitation-propaganda in this case was to race-bait the culture artfully. Anyone who opposed the “leader” was a “racist”. It was the “Führerprinzip” come to America (so no surprise that self-hating Jews aided the Jew haters who are barely veiled as mere Israel haters).

It was a success. The buffoon “leader” appeared midst Greek columns in a city that itself was situated in the thin air mists associated with Olympus. High up above the teeming “masses” the “creative class” overlords were ready to adore the new leader of the future. But the “creative class” clowns forgot the past they so wanted to cast off. The pages of the book the “creative class” wanted so much to turn kept history alive.

The more pages these art school clowns turned the more history asserted itself.

Untethered to the white working class and their interests the Obama Dimocratic Party is desperately attempting to bolster its own numbers by importing new members of the “coalition of the ascendant”. Because of the massive electoral defeats of 2010 and 2014 the Obama Dimocratic Party realizes it must import new voters if it is to continue to control the levers of state power. That’s what the Obama “immigration reform” is all about. The people are revolting so the Führer will import new masses to worship him and keep alive his thousand year Reich.

Today the New York Times, catches up to us as it tries to explain, from a pro-Obama pro-illegal immigration amnesty viewpoint, why the Obama Dimocratic Party is bound for a place called “failure”, not Hope:

The Democrats’ Immigration Problem

SAN DIEGO — PRESIDENT OBAMA’S executive order eliminating the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants is good policy. It is the right thing to do. But it is a dangerous move for the Democratic Party.

Yes, immigration is an important issue for most Latinos and Asian-Americans. And yes, 63 percent of Latinos and 66 percent of Asian- Americans voted for Democratic candidates for Congress in the midterms. The executive order could solidify and expand that support for years to come.

But Latinos and Asian-Americans made up only 11 percent of the electorate. Even if immigration were the only issue driving their vote — and it most certainly was not — it could have shifted the national partisan balance of power by only a few percentage points.

That is the best spin the New York Times can muster for Obama’s dangerous usurpation of constitutional order. The desperate violation of the rule of law by a unitary executive ignores reality and history:

Whites, meanwhile, accounted for 75 percent of the electorate. Far more than any other group, whites will decide the fate of the parties in the years to come. Unfortunately for the Democratic Party, the data suggest that immigration very much matters for whites. [snip]

Polls indicate that an overwhelming majority of white Americans view illegal immigration as a serious problem. A third think immigration over all is bad for the country.

This anxiety is coupled with an increasingly clear partisan divide on immigration. [snip]

Put it all together: Many white Americans see that America is changing, believe that immigration is driving many of the negative changes and know that one party stands largely on the side of immigrants while the other party stands largely in opposition. For many whites, this is a powerful motivation to vote Republican.

As to be expected, the New York Times bathes its analysis in race-bait innuendo and flat out screeches of racism. There is no accounting for the fact that many Latinos and even Americans that support Barack Obama’s policy aims on immigration resist the constitutional usurpation of the Führer.

Having to a great extent given birth to a “black party” that once was the Democratic Party of FDR, Barack Obama seeks to preserve that “black party” with an infusion of imported voters. This “black party” will end in desolation row:

As a result there is now a tight relationship between views on immigration and the vote. In the midterms, 75 percent of Americans who felt that most illegal immigrants should be deported voted Republican. In contrast, only 35 percent of those who favored a chance for undocumented immigrants to apply for legal status supported Republican candidates. Of those who saw immigration as the nation’s most important problem, 74 percent went Republican.

For the Democrats, the consequences are severe. Only 38 percent of white voters in the midterm elections sided with Democratic candidates. Almost two-thirds of whites without a college degree voted for Republicans in the midterms; as recently as 1990, these voters overwhelmingly favored Democrats.

There was a solution to this problem for the once party of FDR now the Obama Dimocrat Party. The solution was to get a leader that would lead the Obama Dimocrat Party back to the party of FDR. This leader should have denounced Barack Obama’s unitary executive diktat as an abuse against Constitutional order. This leader could have brought back the white working class into the Democratic Party fold. This leader would have denounced the fact that Despite highest poverty numbers in 50 years, Obama okays illegals to compete for jobs in US . But the New York Times fails to see that as an obvious solution:

There are no easy solutions for the Democrats. Shifting to the right is not possible, given the party’s strong pro-immigration constituencies. Half of the Latino and Asian-American populations profess no allegiance to any party. Shifting to the right on immigration might cost more minority votes than it gains white votes.

The Democrats could simply hold tight and wait until changing demographics give them an edge. That might be an effective long-term strategy, but it is likely to give Republicans control of the levers of power for decades.

The next president of the United States will have a Republican controlled House of Representatives. Republicans will continue to control most state houses as well and in addition will continue exclusive control of both legislature and governors’ mansions in the majority of states. Because of Barack Obama’s illegal usurpations of constitutional order it is now also likely that the next president will also have a Republican Senate (especially if the Senators from South Dakota and West Virginia bolt from the lawless Obama Dimocrat Party).

The illegal illegal immigration amnesty ploy by Barack Obama is not the first gift to the next Republican president nor is it the first time the hypocrite left has sold out principle to protect their dear leader. In 2008 the hypocrite kooks attacked opponents of Barack Obama on issues such as the “unitary executive” which now they full embrace.

Those of us who respect constitutional law are not entirely alone. Even a few of those who agree with Obama on his policy goals understand the threat:

The Unilateral Presidency

Obama may be right on the substance of immigration reform, but he’s setting a dangerous precedent. [snip]

Those cheering his decision should imagine a GOP president exercising similar authority in 2017 or 2021, but on a different issue. It’s immigration now, but, as commentators as disparate as New York Magazine’s
Jonathan Chait and George W. Bush administration executive power maven John Yoo have pointed out, for a future president it could be taxes, environmental laws, workplace safety protections or elements of Obamacare that get nonlegislative overhauls when an administration uses its prosecutorial discretion (the executive tool of the moment) to curb enforcement of those laws. [snip]

But one problem eclipses the substance: The president is redirecting our national immigration policy by himself. As the New York Times noted this week, no less an authority than Obama has in recent years said that what he’s doing was beyond his authority. “The problem is that, you know, I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States,” he said on a Google Hangout last year. “My job is to execute laws that are passed.” And execute them faithfully, at that, and with care – not simply as is convenient or even compassionate.

Recently we warned against the attempts by Barack Obama henchmen to use a Palestinian-style human shield to protect Barack Obama. With ears now attuned to the worm tongues of Obama protection squads the human shield has decided not to wear armor but to nakedly intercept arrows that target Barack Obama.

In Chappaqua a human shield is born.

It didn’t have to be this way. There was no need for a shield maiden in a cage.

Illegal Obama Illegal Immigration Executive Order Speech Set For Thursday

Stock up on pep pills. Obama will drone on Thursday about illegal immigration in a speech. The speech will be the last gasp of a loser as he announces an illegal “executive order” on illegal immigration.

It will be a loser speech by a loser. If this Obama “executive order” was a winner Obama would have announced it before the elections of November 2014. If it was a real big winner Obama would have announced his “executive order” before his own reelection in November 2012. But Obama waited and waited hoping to bait Republicans into a trap.

As we wrote in Two Smart Moves By The GOP

Barack Obama threatened. If the congress would not bow to his imperious demands then Obama threatened to act on his own. Barack Obama threatened and threatened some more. Republicans quivered in fear but fear also prevented them from moving forward with amnesty. Obama threatened again. Increasingly Republicans lost their fear and stood their ground.

Barack Obama threatened again. He would act alone like an imperial personage in a backwater country. Republicans began to quiver less and less and wonder why Obama was threatening so much and doing so little. Then came the flood of border crossing children goaded to come by Obama and his allies and the public began to take notice of what was happening at the border.

We wondered, Why Won’t Republicans Use The Illegal Immigration Crisis As A Wedge Issue And Speak To Black Americans? Black Americans took notice anyway. Obama continued to threaten but with less conviction. [snip]

Barack Obama’s threats became a hole he dug for himself. Barack Obama thought that he could bully Republicans into doing what he demanded. But then Republicans saw that this was a case of MISERY LOVES COMPANY. Republicans smartly refused to provide company to the miserable Obama.

Every Obama policy was on the ballot in November 2014, every single one. Obama lost. So now Obama doubles down on immigration amnesty because… well, what else is there to do other than golf?

NBC News, home to Obama worship, thinks it might be best for Obama to golf rather than do what he says he will do:

Nearly half of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s expected plan to take executive action that would potentially allow millions of undocumented immigrants to stay legally in the United States, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Forty-eight percent oppose Obama taking executive action on immigration — which could come as soon as later this week — while 38 percent support it; another 14 percent have no opinion or are unsure. [snip]

Latinos are divided, with 43 percent supporting the action and 37 percent opposing it.

Obama’s illegal illegal immigration executive order is a sign of pure weakness, and hypocrisy:

Obama’s royal flip-flop on using executive action on illegal immigration [snip]

Univision Town Hall, March 28, 2011: ‘The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws.

Question: Mr. President, my question will be as follows: With an executive order, could you be able to stop deportations of the students? And if that’s so, that links to another of the questions that we have received through univision.com. We have received hundreds, thousand, all related to immigration and the students. Kay Tomar through Univision.com told us — I’m reading — “What if at least you grant temporary protective status, TPS, to undocumented students? If the answer is yes, when? And if no, why not?”

Obama: Well, first of all, temporary protective status historically has been used for special circumstances where you have immigrants to this country who are fleeing persecution in their countries, or there is some emergency situation in their native land that required them to come to the United States. So it would not be appropriate to use that just for a particular group that came here primarily, for example, because they were looking for economic opportunity.

With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed — and I know that everybody here at Bell is studying hard so you know that we’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.

There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.

Interview with Univision, Jan. 31, 2013: ‘I’m not a king’

Question: Now I know that you have reduced, this is another concern on Twitter, the number of deportations of non-criminals. However, in 2012 more than 184,000 non-criminals were deported. In the spirit of your push for immigration reform, would you consider a moratorium on deportations of non-criminals? Remember, these are your words: “This is not about policy. It’s about people.”

Obama: Well, I think it is important to remind everybody that, as I said I think previously, and I’m not a king. I am the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law. And that’s what we’ve done. But what I’ve also said is, let’s make sure that we’re applying the law in a way that takes into account people’s humanity. That’s the reason that we moved forward on deferred action. Within the confines of the law we said, we have some discretion in terms of how we apply this law. The same is true with respect to the kinds of the length of time that people have to spend outside of the country when their spouses are already here for example.

So we’re making some changes there. But there are still going to be stories that are heartbreaking with respect to deportations until we get comprehensive immigration reform. That’s one of the reasons I think it’s so important for us to go ahead and get this action done. And keep in mind that if we’re able to say, at the end of this year, or maybe even before the end of the summer, that we’ve gotten comprehensive immigration reform done, then that then empowers me to deal with many of these issues in a way that I think, to allow the more specific issues that a lot of people I think would like to see resolved.

Google Hangout, Feb. 14, 2013: ‘I’m not the emperor of the United States’

Question: Your administration has deported a record high number, 1.5 million, of undocumented immigrants, more than your predecessor. And I know your administration took some steps last year to protect unintended undocumented immigrants from being deported. However many people say those efforts were not enough. What I’d like to know is what you’re going to do now, and until the time that immigration reform is passed, to insure that more people aren’t being deported and families are not being broken apart.

Obama: Well, look Jackie, this is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that you know I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed, and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system.

And what that means is that we have certain obligations to enforce the laws that are in place, even if we think that in many cases the results may be tragic. And what we have been able to do is to make sure that we’re focusing our enforcement resources on criminals — as opposed to somebody who’s here, just trying to work and look after their families.

What we have tried to do is administratively reduce the burdens and hardships on families being separated. And what we’ve done, obviously, is pass the deferred action which made sure that the dream, uh, uh dreamers, young people who were brought here and think of themselves as Americans, are American except for their papers, that they’re not deported.

Having said all that, we’ve got to stretch our administrative flexibility as much as we can. And that’s why making sure we get comprehensive immigration reform done is so important.

Interview with Noticias Telmundo, Sept. 17, 2013: ‘There is a path to get this done and that is through Congress.’

Question: Won’t you at least consider unilaterally freezing the deportations for parents of deferred-action kids?

Obama: Here’s the problem that I have, Jose, and I have said this consistently. My job in the executive branch is to carry out the laws that are passed. Congress has said, here’s the law when it comes to those who are undocumented, and they allocate a whole bunch of money for enforcement. What I have been able to do is make a legal argument that I think is absolutely right, which is that given the resources we have, we can’t do everything that Congress has asked us to do, what we can do is then carve out the DREAM Act folks….

But if we start broadening that, then essentially, I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally. So that’s not an option. I do get a little worried that advocates of immigration reform start losing heart and immediately thinking, well, somehow there’s an out here—that if Congress doesn’t act, we will just have the president sign something and that will take care of it, and we won’t have to worry about it. What I have said is that there is a path to get this done and that is through Congress.”

Why is Barack Obama so desperate that he will emit his illegal amnesty for illegal immigration executive order? What else can he do when even dumbass Donna Brazille says, along with other Dems to Obama: You broke our party. You bet your dumb ass Donna, on Obama, and now you’ve fallen and you can’t get up.

Obama’s illegal immigration amnesty will not help. The white working class will flee even further away from Obama Dimocrats and to the Republicans. Black Americans will turn away from Bill Cosby rape allegations and realize that Obama is the cause of their pain.

Obama’s illegal immigration amnesty will hurt the Obama Dimocrat party and the country. Says who? Say’s Obama:

President Barack Obama once declared that an influx of illegal immigrants will harm “the wages of blue-collar Americans” and “put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”

“[T]here’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before,” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”

”Not all these fears are irrational,” he wrote.

The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”


Things will get worse for Obama and Obama Dimocrats. Barack Obama is 100% correct when he said “The problem is that you know I’m the president of the United States.” You don’t need to hear that stuff about not being emperor. If Obama were an emperor, he would be a naked one.

What To Do About Jonathan Gruber ObamaCare Lies

Update: It’s sadomasochism without the sex. We paid to get beaten. WaPo fact check: Yes, Gruber got $400,000 for ObamaCare work. This was done even as Gruber posed as an independent analyst of ObamaCare.

What did Gruber do for the money besides lie to the “stupid” public? Gruber created the “Gruber Microsimulation Model” which mimics the model used by the Congressional Budget Office to make evaluations of programs. The “Gruber Microsimulation Model” was a flim-flam scam to get the CBO numbers to come out as phony as needed to pass ObamaCare. The “Gruber Microsimulation Model” was a variant of “garbage in, garbage out”. Gruber provided the garbage lies to CBO and CBO provided garbage lies to the public. What once was your/our government at work is now our masters who lie to us.

Don’t think that Jonathan Gruber only got $400,000 for the ObamaCare scam. Gruber was grubby and grabby. Gruber got hundreds of thousands of dollars in state after state, possibly adding up to millions, as the Washington Times reports, for scams in various states too.

Some of those states should sue Gruber to get their money back. Force Gruber to testify under oath in a trial setting. Time to play sadomasochism with us holding the whip.

————————————————–

Courts have inherent power to sanction those who lie in any proceeding before the court. Jonathan Gruber has several times submitted amicus briefs in ObamaCare cases.

We wrote about the latest developments on the ObamaCare chessboard recently. We wrote about “ObamaCare architect” Jonathan Gruber back in April of this year in How Big??? ObamaCare Jonathan Gruber #HalBIG. In April the news about Jonathan Gruber was the discovery of a videotape in which Gruber explicitly undermined the contentions of his fellow ObamaCare scam artists. On the vital question of subsidies, Gruber is seen/heard on the video to uphold the central contention of ObamaCare opponents.

Soon after, another videotape of Gruber – in prepared remarks saying the very same thing again – appeared. We predicted the courts would take judicial notice of Gruber’s ObamaCare scam flim-flam remarks. Soon after, that is exactly what happened:

Gruber’s repeated remarks contradict the Obama administration’s legal argument, made in Halbig v. Burwell and three related lawsuits, that it is implausible that Congress would have conditioned those subsidies on states establishing Exchanges. His remarks likewise contradict the amicus briefs Gruber himself filed in two of those cases. [snip]

Gruber’s remarks, combined with other evidence the Obama administration knew it did not have legal authority to dispense these subsidies or impose the related taxes, call for further investigation into how the administration came to take these actions anyway.

Yesterday, the State of Oklahoma filed a motion to apprise a federal judge of Gruber’s remarks. Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt was the first to challenge the Obama administration’s illegal taxes and subsidies way back in September 2012 (Pruitt v. Burwell). Solicitor general Patrick Wyrick noted Gruber’s remarks are highly relevant, because the government itself has repeatedly relied on Gruber as an expert in these cases:

Defendants themselves relied on evidence from Professor Gruber in an attempt to show the supposed “implausibility” of Congress having made something as important as the subsidies hinge on the States’ willingness to establish exchanges. Plainly, this newly-discovered evidence squarely controverts Defendants’ evidence on this point, and establishes that it is far from “implausible” that the drafters or Section 36B intended to withhold tax credits and subsidies from states who declined to set up exchanges in order to place pressure on those states to set up exchanges. To the contrary, it is not only plausible, it now appears to be demonstrably true.

As we wrote above, the courts have inherent power to investigate and sanction those that fed the courts false information under oath. But let’s be realistic. The courts generally avoid these types of sanctions and the courts here will likely do nothing to punish the ObamaCare liars.

Should the courts investigate and punish those ObamaCare supporters who lied to the courts? Sure. But that should not be the focus at this point. To borrow from Hillary Clinton, “what difference at this point does it make?”

The “point” right now for ObamaCare opponents is to continue to win the ObamaCare political fight for public opinion and ultimately to destroy ObamaCare root and branch. To that end, what should be done?

Let’s inventory the rather small problems for ObamaCare opponents. Problem #1: Big Media ignores Jonathan Gruber’s remarks. Problem #2: ObamaCare supporters other than Big Media mostly ignore Jonathan Gruber’s remarks. Problem #3: We are sure the Supreme Court will decide against the government but even if does the political landscape to make such a decision easier for the court to reach and the political battlefield after the Supreme Court issues such a decision must be prepared as well.

Those three small problems are intertwined. All three of those small problems can easily be overcome.

Consider the Big Media problem. There is a near total Big Media blockade of Jonathan Gruber’s remarks. Something has to be done to force Big Media to broadcast and publish Gruber’s grubby remarks.

Ditto the ObamaCare supporters near total blockade of Jonathan Gruber’s grubby remarks. Again, something has to be done to force ObamaCare supporters’ faces into the dung pile which are Gruber’s videotaped remarks.

Combine those two situations with the Supreme Court landscape “problem” and we see one obvious solution. Congress should hold hearings early next year, (not earlier, not during Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season when no one will pay attention, but before the Supreme Court arguments in March are heard on ObamaCare) – which feature Jonathan Gruber. If necessary the rules of the hearings must be changed to allow the videotapes of Gruber to be played over and over and over again.

Senate hearings across various committees will force Big Media to cover and broadcast Jonathan Gruber’s remarks. Senate hearings across various committees will force ObamaCare supporters to confront the reality of Jonathan Gruber’s “stupid” remarks.

Most importantly Senate (and House) hearings before March of next year will prepare the political landscape for a Supreme Court rejection of ObamaCare subsidies contrary to the letter of the law.

Senate (and House) hearings will also prepare the post Supreme Court ObamaCare decision battlefield landscape. Be assured that after the Supreme Court restores the law as written, ObamaCare scam flim-flam artists will then try to force the states to impose exchanges on their citizens. Senate (and House) hearings will prepare the battlefield and put steel into the spine of the many states which have thus far refused to join in the ObamaCare scam.

The opportunities for ObamaCare opponents as we go forward are very good.

The disasters for ObamaCare flim-flam scam artists get worse day-to-day. Today Nancy Pelousy somehow even forgot who this “ObamaCare architect” Jonathan Gruber is. Pelousy used to quote Gruber on her website. Nancy Pelousy used to know who Gruber is:



Maybe Nancy Pelousy should call Howard Dean. You remember Howard Dean? Howard Dean, the man who did not notice the misogyny and woman hate of 2008 (directed against Hillary Clinton by his best friends, Barack Obama, and the leadership of the Democratic Party) because, as Howard explained – he did not have cable TV. Howard thinks we’re stupid. Now liar Howard is using the word “stupid” to describe Obama’s lies and liars:

Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean gave an excoriating critique of his own party’s key piece of legislation saying the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, was “put together by a bunch of elitists” who “don’t fundamentally understand the American people.”

Dean said was shocked that Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “the stupidity of the American voter” was a “political advantage” in passing Obamacare in an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Wednesday.

The problem is not that he said it–the problem is that he thinks it,” Dean said. “The core problem under the damn law is it was put together by a bunch of elitists who don’t fundamentally understand the American people. That’s what the problem is.

Brzezinski cringed after repeating Gruber’s quote.

“Jesus!” Dean exclaimed after hearing that one of Obama’s key health care advisers would call the lack of transparency “critical” in passing the massively unpopular law.

Howard Dean who one described himself as the “Democratic wing of the Democratic Party” – and proved it with his reign of misogyny and woman-hate bemoans the lack of transparency to pass the corruption flim-flam scam called ObamaCare. The totalitarian left that forced Obama and ObamaCare on the nation is now worried. Transparent? Who ever said Barack Obama and his gangsters would be transparent?

Gangster government will produce gangster lies.

Jonathan Gruber who has repeatedly lied to the courts in his sworn affidavits to uphold ObamaCare is a liar. Worse, Jonathan Gruber as the ObamaCare architect is a totalitarian of the left who thinks his job is to rule the “stupid” people. Jonathan Gruber thinks the people are revolting because the people are revolting against ObamaCare:

New video surfaces of Obamacare architect

A new video has surfaced of a key architect of Obamacare slamming voters once again.

American voters are too stupid to understand the difference,” Jonathan Gruber said in a clip of remarks he made last year discussing the passage of Obamacare. The clip aired Tuesday on Fox News’ “The Kelly File.”

It is the second video of Gruber, a professor at MIT and former Romney adviser, taking aim at the intelligence of the American electorate.

Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass,” he said in a video that has recently emerged — and touched off an uproar. Those remarks as well, were from a separate event in 2013.



Today, more video emerged of Gruber:

As Congress voted on the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, in 2010, one of the bill’s architects, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, told a college audience that those pushing the legislation pitched it as a bill that would control spiraling health care costs even though most of the bill was focused on something else and there was no guarantee the bill would actually bend the cost curve.

In recent days, the past comments of Gruber — who in this 2010 speech notes that he “helped write the federal bill” and “was a paid consultant to the Obama administration to help develop the technical details as well” — have been given renewed attention. In previously posted but recently noticed speeches, Gruber discusses how those pushing the bill took part in an “exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” taking advantage of voters’ “stupidity” to create a law that would ultimately be good for them.

In this fourth video, Gruber’s language is not as stark as in three previous instances, but his suggestion that Obamacare proponents engaged in less-than-honest salesmanship remains.

That’s on CNN. Just like ObamaCare, the Big Media blockade is crumbling.



The Big Media blockade is crumbling but it still stands:

Howard Kurtz, host of the Fox News Channel’s “Mediabuzz” slammed the media for failing to report the controversial comments of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, arguing that the “inexcusable,” “virtual blackout” was an example of liberal media bias on Wednesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.

It’s been a virtual blackout, Bill, and it’s inexcusable, nothing on the network evening newscasts. One mention on CNN, not a word in the New York Times. On what planet is this kind of embarrassing admission not news? Maybe on that comet where the spaceship just landed” he stated.

The Washington Post has discussed Gruber’s “stupid” remarks but in a context that smears Republicans. The point of discussion for the Washington Post is the GOP reaction to Gruber, not the insult of Gruber’s remarks. Still, we’re glad to see some talk about hearings:

GOP’s anti-Obamacare push gains new momentum in wake of Gruber video

The Republican Party’s ardent campaign against President Obama’s health-care law gained new momentum Wednesday as lawmakers reacted angrily to assertions by an architect of the policy that it was crafted in a deliberately deceptive way in order to pass Congress.

On both sides of the Capitol, leading conservatives said they may call economist Jonathan Gruber to testify about his remarks, which were made last year and surfaced this week in a video on social media. In the video, Gruber suggests that the administration’s signature health-care legislation passed in part because of the “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” over its funding mechanisms.

“The strategy was to hide the truth from the American people,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who is slated to chair the Senate Budget Committee next year. “That is a threat to the American republic.”

There should be hearings early next year on the ObamaCare flim-flam scam across many committees. Hold fire until very early next year, once the holiday season is over and Americans are ready to listen. It’s a fine idea from GOP Rep. Jim Jordan: Maybe it’s time for House hearings on Jon Gruber’s ObamaCare remarks. It’s not yet time. Let the momentum build until next year:

Hearings floated as Hill Republicans seize on Gruber Obamacare comments [snip]

We may want to have hearings on this,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), an influential voice among GOP hardliners and a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, in an interview at the Capitol. “We shouldn’t be surprised they were misleading us.” [snip]

This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” Gruber said. “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the ‘stupidity of the American voter’ or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”
[snip]

Jordan said House Republicans have been sending each other a blizzard of e-mails and text messages this week, and he expects the interest in “bringing [Gruber] up here to talk” will gain traction as members return to Washington. House Republicans will gather Thursday evening for their first series of votes since the election.

“I just had a colleague text me saying, ‘We’ve got to look into this!” Jordan said as he glanced at his phone outside the House floor Wednesday morning.

Investigate. Hold hearings with Gruber on the grill. But keep Darryl Issa away from this. Let the Senate take the lead on this then let the House follow. Issa is a loose cannon that does not know how to conduct an investigation nor a hearing. Wait until very early next year, before March, then hold hearings.

The American people must be informed of “ObamaCare architect” Jonathan Gruber’s comments. The media blockade and protection of ObamaCare must be broken. The time to do so is early next year.

DoAWholeLot: Veterans Day 2014

We received a good gift just in time for Veterans Day 2014. It came from a shy reader who does not comment but faithfully reads every day. She sent us pictures a family member (David) had sent her.

One picture in particular graced us:

Talking with one of WWII’s first heroes, 99 year old Lt Col Richard Cole, who was Gen James Doolittle’s’ co-pilot on the first B-25 to take off for the raid on Tokyo. Cole is one of only four living Raiders, is still sharp as a tack. He said that he was scared, but that he didn’t want to be recognized for anything other than just doing his job.


Doolittle's Raiders

Ninety-nine years young and Lieutenant Colonel Richard Cole can still probably get more dates than a Hollywood pinup boy. He’s a veteran that like so many has an amazing story to tell:

On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and U.S. commanders wanted to strike back. The way to do it? A secret bombing run over Japan led by airmen like Lt. Col. Richard Cole, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner.

He’s 98 years old now, but he still remembers the moment when he joined the mission called the “Doolittle Raid” as a 26-year-old Air Force pilot. A message on a bulletin board was seeking people who wanted to sign up for a dangerous mission.

“There were already other people’s names there, so maybe it was a little bit of inspiration,” Cole said.

CBS News met Cole at the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas, where a permanent exhibit tells the story of the mission.

The pilots’ mission was to hit back by doing what no one had ever done before: take off in their B-25 bombers from the deck of an aircraft carrier in the Pacific then fly 600 miles to the Japanese coast to drop their bombs.

The man who would lead them was Gen. James Doolittle, a master in military aviation.

Cole still remembers what Doolittle said about the mission.

“He said that it was a very dangerous mission. Anybody wanted to back out, they could without any repercussions.”

No one backed out.

On the morning of April 18, 1942, they took off, headed for their key target: Tokyo. Cole and Doolittle led the fleet in their plane.

Congressional Medal of Honor winner Richard Cole and three other of Doolittle’s Raiders did a whole lot for this country. We owe them and all veterans a debt that cannot be repaid.

Lately it seems like we owe them a debt we will not repay.

Recently the Veterans’ Administration scandals insulted the memory of those who gave their lives in service to us all. The insult extends to those veterans still with us and in need of care as well as those who will one day need to be cared for. They did a lot. We are the ones that do little.

President Abraham Lincoln in his second inaugural address set as a point of honor that the nation would “care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan”. We have not fulfilled that debt with the honor and devotion due.

Indeed, recently, insults are freely spat upon those whose deeds provided us with that continued freedom of speech. In a shameless article at the rancid Salon Magazine a snake wrote of our veterans “You don’t protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy.” We won’t link to that anti-white racist filth although the trash can be read at other sites critical of the insult:

The best way to recognize Veterans Day is to thank a vet. Just walk up to a veteran, shake their hand and thank them for their service.

Let the fools at Salon defend their own freedoms.

The picture of Richard Cole is not the only one we received. Along with the picture of the DidAWholeLot Raider (all the pictures were taken in late October 2014 in New Orleans) we received these fun photos of these pretty planes that helped save the world from tyranny (captions by “David”):

Sarah and the Victory Belles who had just performed a tribute to the Andrews Sisters. They were great singers! Brought tears to the eyes of some of the old veterans:

We salute our veterans.

Ebola Obama Corpse – The Autopsy

Update: At the end of our article we note that the GOP has some chips to play in the identity politics game. Others have noticed:



GOP wins with Democratic demographic playbook by ewillies

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams points out a rather interesting irony on the huge Republican win this week. On the more popular races, the Republican Party looked as diverse and fresh as the Democratic Party. Actually, it seemed quite a bit fresher. [snip]

“Jon, Republicans didn’t just take Democrats’ seat,” Jessica Williams said. “They stole their essence. The GOP went from a Brooks Brothers catalog to a United Colors of Benetton ad. [snip]

Jessica Williams then enumerated the list of ironies. “But sorry Democrats,” Williams said. “Utah just elected a young black congresswoman. Conservative Arkansas passed a minimum wage increase. What the f$ck kind of bizarro world is this Jon?” [snip]

This skit is funny. It is worth looking at the deeper message within and what it means for both parties.

Identity politics – the new GOP wildcard? Meanwhile, in the aftermath of Obama Dimocrats’ beheading, Obama golfs like an entitled Enron executive.

——————————————————–

Bathe in gasoline and light a match. Do you really need an autopsy to determine cause of death? Stand in a pile of nuclear waste. Is it difficult to determine cause of death? Lick the juices oozing from an Ebola Obama. You don’t need a medical examiner to tell you what mistake you made.

Obama Dimocrats are about to spend some of their borrowed cash for an autopsy of 2014. We’ll save them that deficit expenditure. We performed the Democratic Party autopsy back in 2008. The autopsy was in our series “Mistake In ’08″ (which will likely have a new installment after Veterans’ Day). It’s all there in Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII.

There’s also our series on the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” coalition of death which explains it all. Read it Debbie and save yourself some money: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV.

Vito Corleone did not need an autopsy report to figure out what killed Sonny.

Can’t you figure out what killed Luca?

Do you really need an autopsy for cause of death?

Ebola Obama. No autopsy required but a fake autopsy to shift the blame will do nicely:

DNC chief: We have a problem

The Democratic National Committee is planning a “top-to-bottom assessment” of its campaign strategy after suffering worse-than-expected defeats in last week’s midterm elections.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), who leads the group, announced Saturday that a committee will examine the party’s performance in the 2014 and 2010 elections.

“We are going to look at where we fell short. We’re going to identify our mistakes,” she said in a video that was sent to party supporters.

Our party has a problem,” she added.

The committee will specifically look at messaging, get-out-the-vote efforts and digital operations. It will form in the next few weeks and present a report at the organization’s winter meeting in early 2015. [snip]

“I’m not going to gloss over the facts: On Tuesday, the Republicans had a good night. We didn’t. We worked hard for months, we even won a few tough races, but it wasn’t enough,” she said.

In addition to losing control of the Senate this week, the Democratic party has lost 69 seats since Obama took office.

The problem is Barack Obama. The mistake is the Mistake in ’08. ‘Nuff said.

It will all be Obama excuses and phony explanations to avoid the obvious. The Obama Dimocrat “autopsy” will be a fake. Once again the blame will be shifted to “messaging”. The problem will be identified as “digital”. It’s all a fake. “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” You don’t need an autopsy to know that Ebola Obama kills.

After 2012 the Republican Party held an inquest and autopsy too. The geniuses of the GOP came up with two conclusions. One of those conclusions was smart. One of those conclusions was stupid.

The smart conclusion, or rather the obvious conclusion was that the Republican Party had great need to catch up with the technology of elections. A modern campaign must utilize all modern technology and not go to sleep after an election. They spent money to come up with that brilliant conclusion. Mitt Romney’s ORCA system fell completely apart on election day so yeah, um, the GOP technology did fall short beyond a doubt so they spent money to uncover the obvious.

The stupid conclusion was on comprehensive immigration reform. This is another way for the “leaders” of the party to say “we have to pass amnesty on illegal immigration because that is what our Chamber of Commerce moneybags want to keep wages low”.

Fortunately for the GOP the rank and file as well as some leaders, like Ted Cruz, realized that amnesty was not a solution but a deadly draught. Amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, was not the solution. In 2014 Republicans did much better with Latinos in part because they began to talk honestly about illegal immigration and their legitimate reasons to oppose amnesty.

In Texas Greg Abbott won 40% of the Latino vote. Part of his unique ability to garner Latino support came from the fact his mother-in-law is Latina. But the reason that fact was a benefit was because Abbott made sure the electorate knew he was not a Latino hater even if he opposed illegal immigration amnesty and supported border security.

Identity politics. Yup. Bill Clinton has warned against identity politics:

“I believe that in ways large and small, peaceful and sometimes violent, that the biggest threat to the future of our children and grandchildren is the poison of identity politics that preaches that our differences are far more important than our common humanity.”

We’ve seen the bitter fruit of identity politics in the Barack Obama harvest. But if Obama Dimocrats are gonna play that card, the GOP had to learn to play the game too. And they did in 2014. With Tim Scott, Mia Love, Susanna Martinez, Nikki Haley, Bobby Jindal, Allan West, Brian Sandoval, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, George P. Bush, Columbia Bush, Joni Ernst, and Ben Carson, identity politics can cut both ways especially if Republicans continue to expand their minority gains as well as continue to gain with their already large support base among the white working class. The GOP has a lot of identity politics chips to play with in this scurrilous game.

What will be the biggest lie to come from the Obama Dimocrat autopsy? Willie Brown who thought Obama Dimocrats would win in November 2014 writes the plan for 2016:

Veteran California politician Willie Brown has warned this weekend that presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “is going to lose” in 2016 “[u]nless there are some serious readjustments to the Democratic operation.” [snip]

“Everybody keeps asking me, “Why did this happen?’” Brown wrote. “Beats me. When it came to the elections, I was a dreamer who thought the Democrats were going to retain the Senate. Instead, we got walloped.”

Brown suggested that Democrats erred by running away from President Barack Obama, “which simply played into the Republicans’ strategy of portraying him as a failure.” The party also failed to turn out young voters, he said.

Hillary Rodham Clinton must be wondering whether she really wants to run for president. Unless there are some serious readjustments to the Democratic operation, she is going to lose,” Brown concluded.

Last year, Brown had predicted Clinton would win easily in 2016: “..[A]ll she has to do is continue to breath[e] and in 2016 she’ll be elected to the presidency of the United States,” he said.

In fairness, Brown appears to be saying that Hillary Clinton 2016 will fail unless the apparatus of vote turnout improves. But the suggestion that anyone should get closer to Ebola Obama is malarkey. On every issue he cites as reasons why Obama is popular, the polls state that the public as a whole is opposed to Obama’s policies – which were on the ballot in 2014 – every single one.

Anyone who suggests Hillary Clinton should stick by Ebola Obama is no friend to Hillary Clinton 2016. Hillary should not be a human shield for Barack Obama as so many Barack Obama supporters advocate.

Harry Reid who helped gift Barack Obama the nomination in the great “Mistake in ’08″ is angry with Obama and blames Obama for the fact that he will now be a has-been in the Senate. Even bumblin’ Joe Biden has reason to be pissed off at his once savior and that’s not due to too much guzzlin’ liquor. If you think Reid and Biden are grinding their teeth, picture the Obama Dimocrats decimated in state and local elections.

If Hillary Clinton is anywhere near Barack Obama in 2016 we won’t need an autopsy to determine cause of death. Cause of death will be Ebola Obama.

The contagion of Ebola Obama will continue to kill in 2016 as in 2014. The solution is total cremation of Ebola Obama and the Ebola Obama Dimocrats. That’s the path to a healthy future.

ObamaCare Chess: Supreme Court Moves To Checkmate King

It’s political warfare on a Constitutional chessboard. On Friday the Supreme Court announced it would review the King decision. Checkmate.

The Supreme Court did not wait until Monday as it would ordinarily do to crush Barack Obama. Unlike most others, we are not surprised at all. For us, there is no Shock: Supreme Court will decide whether federal consumers are eligible for ObamaCare subsidies.

It is as we have foreseen – on the very day of the Halbig and King decisions:

We wrote about Halbig HERE. It’s a big, big, big, decision which almost surely forces an an Obama appeal to a full panel of the appellate court. Obama will win that fight because he packed the court when Harry Reid ended the Senate filibusters on judges to courts other than the Supreme Court. But then the case will go to the Supreme Court and we’re walking on the sunny side of the street and believe the Supreme Court will ratify today’s three judge panel decision. [snip]

Here’s a complication: There is another case on the same issues in the Fourth Circuit. It is likely the Fourth Circuit appeals court will rule in favor of ObamaCare. The losers in that case will then be able to appeal directly to the Supreme Court if they so choose and force the issue faster than anyone expects but still after the November 2014 elections.

How’s that for bloody good analysis? Almost immediately after we wrote that, the Fourth Circuit did exactly as we predicted. We then wrote an update to take into account the latest decision:

Update II: Well that was quick. Two hours after the Halbig decision the Fourth Circuit issued its decision on ObamaCare. As predicted below, the Fourth Circuit upheld ObamaCare’s subsidy scheme as twisted into existence by Obama. This means a split in appellate court decisions and Supreme Court review.

More importantly, the plaintiffs that lost in the Fourth Circuit now can immediately appeal to the Supreme Court and not bother with an appeal to the full panel of the Fourth Circuit.

Feel free to point out any small diddly thingamajig in which we were wrong ObamaCare supporters. Go ahead. We dare you. We double dare ya!

Our mockery of the Fourth Circuit decision added tickles when ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber’s videotaped statements emerged from a rathold. Gruber made it clear that ObamaCare subsidies were intended only for state exchanges.

Our brilliant, genius, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, analysis hit full flower soon thereafter:

We predicted that Gruber’s comments will be, either through judicial notice or part of the record, introduced by ObamaCare opponents into the judicial record.

We have been proven correct. Plaintiffs in an Oklahoma ObamaCare case have moved to supplement the record with Jonathan Gruber’s helpful comments and history. For our non-regular readers, here is a video hilarity of Gruber’s helpful comments for ObamaCare opponents:

Some would call it genius. We’ll be modest and just blush. Some of what we wrote was mundane:

Our Gruber prediction was not very daring. It was obvious.

But when others clutched their pearls at the swift Fourth Circuit decision on the same day as HalBIG we stayed fixed to the north star and well… we were brilliant in our analysis:

Less obvious at the time to all but us here at Big Pink was the good fortune of that Fourth Circuit pro-ObamaCare decision that came in two hours after the D.C. Circuit cut the guts out of ObamaCare. Our prediction? We predicted that the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs would race to the Supreme Court and skip the en banc stopover. Result? We are right again.

The Fourth Circuit plaintiffs could have asked the full panel of the Fourth Circuit to take up the case and therefore tie themselves down alongside the ObamaCare plaintiffs in the D.C. Circuit where the ObamaCare scam artists ask the full en banc court panel to take up the case. ObamaCare lawyers, it was widely presumed, would appeal their loss in D.C. to the full en banc panel which is packed with Obama appointed judges after Harry Reid destroyed the Senate and its filibuster rules. The likelihood was (although this was before Jonathan Gruber’s comments came to light) that the full D.C. panel would uphold ObamaCare and thereby end the “split” decisions in the circuits making it less likely that the Supreme Court would take up the ObamaCare HalBIG cases.

But we suspected and predicted that the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs would skip the full panel in the Fourth Circuit and instead go directly to the Supreme Court. This they did and we go to the head of the class.

Oh dear, we’re on the verge of being immodest. What will mater and pater say? But damn it to blazes, we were right and so right that old articles we wrote are as daisies fresh sprung from the soil:

On Friday, August 1, pro-ObamaCare lawyers, as predicted by most, filed their appeal for an en banc hearing before the entire D.C. Circuit panel. On July 31, however, the plaintiffs in the Fourth Circuit made their move. The “losers” in the Fourth Circuit beat the D.C. “winners” to the Supreme Court.

The writ to the Supreme Court by the Fourth Circuit plaintiffs cites their new pal “architect” Jonathan Gruber: [snip]

As we predicted the timing was the interesting aspect:

Under the court’s rules, lawyers who lose in an appeals court have 90 days to seek a review in the Supreme Court. And normally, lawyers take the full time. But in this instance, the opponents of the Affordable Care Act want the court’s conservative justices to have a chance to take up the new healthcare case in a few months so they can rule by next spring.

The Obama administration has the opposite strategy on timing. The Justice Department said it planned to ask the full appeals court in the District of Columbia to reconsider last week’s ruling by a three-judge panel. If so, that could delay a final ruling from the appeals court until next year and push off a Supreme Court decision to 2016.

By then, millions of Americans will have relied for several years on having health insurance they could afford thanks to the subsidies. A single adult with an income up to $45,960 and a family of four with an income up $94,200 may obtain insurance on an exchange at a reduced cost.

Did we ever tell you we are great at chess? Since childhood. Great at chess. And ObamaCare is a great chess game. Like Deep Blue we here at Big Pink knew how the chess pieces would move before the players knew what they would do. We wrote it is one giant political chess game on ObamaCare and that was the reason the Supreme Court would checkmate King:

We’ll address the issue of hooking Americans to ObamaCare subsidies as a political strategy below. We’ve already addressed why this line of HalBIG cases can be successful politically for the courts and that the Supreme Court will see that these ObamaCare cases are best settled outside the 2016 (and 2014) election window. Obama of course wants to attack the Supreme Court in an election year just like he so successfully used that timing to his advantage in 2012.

The Writ Of Certiorari filed so quickly, not waiting 90 days, comports with the strategy we have espoused of avoiding as much as possible an election year fight which will fill Chief Justice Roberts with angst. A non-election year ruling right after the November 2014 elections but well before 2016 is just what Roberts needs to calm his nerves.

It’s all come to pass. The Supreme Court waited to read the election returns. Now the Supreme Court will move against ObamaCare before the 2016 election and safely after the 2014 elections. ObamaCare has been hit by an electoral truck and is off to the Sarah Palin death panel.

If you doubt ObamaCare is about to die read the analysis of the Greg Sargent analysis. It’s a hoot. Obama high-priest and ObamaCare scorched earth defender Sargent unwittingly wrote the Supreme Court decision against ObamaCare even as he thought he wrote a brilliant defense for ObamaCare! Hilarius. Sargent and Gruber will eventually be seen as the ObamaCare supporters that buried ObamaCare.

ObamaCare supporter Timothy Jost is soiling his briefs with accusations that the Supreme Court is making political, not legal judgements. But the ones playing bad political chess are Harry Reid and Barack Obama with their court packing maneuvers. Chief Justice John Roberts will have to negate the Reid/Obama court packing schemes if he wants to preserve the integrity of the Judicial Branch.

The pearl clutching dummies will see a Supreme Court checkmate of ObamaCare as great for Barack Obama because it will give him an issue on which to fight. But that is a non starter. ObamaCare is hated just about everywhere. If anything a Supreme Court checkmate which destroys ObamaCare will strengthen the newborn Republican congress. Obama will have to crawl to Republicans for help to rescue his “legacy” disaster. Republicans will prove to not be in a giving vein.

ObamaCare, Ebola, they are all dancers in the Masque of the Red Death hosted by Ebola Obama.

Ebola Obama, this wretched creature who believes he is a black king is about to be checkmated by the Supreme Court. The knights, bishops, rooks, Queen, pawns, and the opposing White King will do Obama in. The name of the White King in this game of chess?

The White King is called the Constitution.

#ReadyForHillary ??? Wake Up Hillary!!! – They’re In Your Head And Want You To Be A Human Shield For Obama

We recently asked “Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?” The answer at this moment in time, before the big meeting on November 21st in New York City, has to sadly be: BOTH. If you are angry at us for this answer read the evidence we provide below and honestly ask yourself the same question and you will come to the very same answer.

In “Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?” we denounced the stupidity of Hillary Clinton campaigning for any Obama Dimocrat in 2014. The results came in on Tuesday and aside from incoherent blatherings about how “Hillary won” the evidence is clear that Hillary should have stayed home with her mouth tightly shut.

The “Hillary won” crowd says Hillary got “chits” from campaigning. Replace the “c” with an “s” and that is what Hillary got. Hillary should have sat back, shut up, and have the party come crawling to her. She doesn’t need no damned dirty chits. Begala: Democrats have no one but Hillary for 2016.

Look at what another ostensible Hillary supporter provides as a strategy for Barack Obama in the next two years and if you can still defend Hillary Clinton’s intelligence you are far too too generous:

“We’ll never see 51 percent again, maybe not even 50,” predicted one of his former campaign aides.

If there’s a ray of hope—and this is the paradox of a late-stage 21st-century presidency—it’s that people will start ignoring him.

Veteran Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg says Obama’s secret weapon just might turn out to be Hillary Clinton—who could divert attention from the White House and allow him to attack multiple crises without the klieg-light scrutiny he has faced in the past. “Once Hillary becomes more important than Obama, the attention shifts,” says Greenberg, who helped advise Clinton’s husband. That’s a good thing, Greenberg argues, because Obama and his team have been so lousy about messaging what he believes to be a fundamentally competent and accomplished presidency. “I think there might be a shift to the job he’s doing versus what he’s saying about the job he’s doing. … That’s important because he’s demonstrably failed on communicating about his economic plans and on his health care reforms and on his environmental record—everything really,” Greenberg says. Scathingly, he concludes: “No one knows about any of it. … There is no part of that he has been successful at.”

Hillary as human shield for the boob Barack. Lovely. Hillary listens to this guy??? Stupid!!!! Still think we’re wrong?

Hillary Clinton wasted 2014 in campaigns for people like Bruce Braley. Braley in 2008 begged Hillary to raise money for him. Hillary raised money for Braley. Braley then endorsed John Edwards. Braley in 2014 asked Hillary to campaign for him. Hillary campaigned for him. Hillary now has the first woman elected statewide in Iowa who will be fully justified when she attacks Hillary.

Why will Joni Ernst be fully justified in attacking Hillary Clinton? Look at what Hillary Clinton said as she campaigned for John Edwards endorser Bruce Braley:

“I would also add, it’s not enough to be a woman. You have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for all women,” Hillary Clinton said at a Wednesday campaign event for Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Bruce Braley, Joni Ernst’s opponent in Iowa.

The “eighteen million cracks in the ceiling” battle cry ends with a crackpot remark on behalf of a John Edwards supporter. We guess the courageous Beijing speech on behalf of womens’ rights was only for certain women. The rights of women ends at the thin blue line? Women who dissent on “progressive” issues need not apply? Women who think third trimester abortions are a problem have to go not in the back of the bus but under the bus? Is this a way to inaugurate a smart campaign for the first woman president? And all this on behalf of a man who stabbed Hillary in the back to endorse that paragon of virtue John Edwards??? Is any of this smart???



And when I heard that, I heard people in the middle getting permission from Hillary Clinton to reject her based on gender alone. In other words, you don’t need to vote for me just because I’m a woman.

If Hillary Clinton decides to run in 2016, after the November 21st meeting, expect to see the video of those stupid remarks played repeatedly every time Hillary or any Hillary supporters mentions that it is time for a woman in the White House. There will be no “context” provided for the remarks because the video will send the message Hillary opponents need. And this on behalf of a John Edwards supporter who fuc*ed her over in 2008.

That’s the “good” news focused on Hillary’s Losers. Now comes the really bad stuff. Hillary Clinton is being sabotaged by Barack Obama supporters and she is apparently too stupid, thus far, to realize it. Think that’s harsh? Read on.


Jut Jaw

For their election issue Politico Magazine featured on the cover an article by Hillary Hater Extraordinaire Maggie Haberman. That article is the latest marriage of Big Media Hillary Haters with Barack Obama Cult leaders. It was a stunning bit of writing because it was packed full with historical revisions and sought to force Hillary Clinton to become a human shield for Barack Obama. We hope that Hillary Clinton wakes up from her stupor when she reads that article as well as the one we write here today.

To fully appreciate the viciousness of Haberman’s article you must compare the picture we use of Hillary Clinton stared down upon by a jut jawed nasty Barack Obama, with the picture chosen by Politco. Take a good long look at the picture in the Politico hit piece. The picture Politico uses is of a haggard, worn out, mean looking Hillary Clinton looking at Barack Obama with evil intent. That picture tells you everything you need to know about the Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman’s article.

The picture tells you all you need to know. The people quoted in the article is the next clue you need to understand that Big Media Politico and Barack Obama Hillary Haters have joined to force Hillary Clinton to be Barack Obama’s human shield.

Lastly, before you read the article, recall what happened in 2008. In 2008 Big Media defended Barack Obama for every lie and nasty remark he made. Big Media swooned every time Barack Obama yapped some banality or stupidity. Big Media protected Barack Obama and attacked anyone who dared admonish Barack Obama in any way.

In 2008 Big Media did not just protect and swoon over Barack Obama. Big Media actively attacked Hillary Clinton (later John McCain, but not as much as Hillary). Anything Hillary Clinton said in 2008 was attacked. Any literature Hillary Clinton 2008 produced was analyzed and mocked. Any Hillary Clinton 2008 supporter was denounced as possibly racist or an outright racist.

That is what happened in 2008. Big Media did everything to protect Barack Obama and destroy Hillary Clinton. That is what happened. There was no brilliant Barack Obama campaign.

In 2008 at every debate Hillary Clinton had to fight not only Barack Obama but the Big Media “moderators”
as well. In every state Hillary Clinton had as opponents the Barack Obama campaign and their Big Media surrogates. That is what happened.

Politico in it’s Maggie Haberman Hillary Hate article wants to convince you and Hillary Clinton of revisionist lies and advocates for Hillary Clinton to continue to be stupid and be an Obama human shield:

One afternoon in late September, David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager and most trusted political aide, slipped into Hillary Clinton’s stately red-brick home on Whitehaven Street in Washington, D.C., to lay out his vision for her 2016 presidential campaign. The Clintons have always made a habit of courting their most talented tormenters, so it wasn’t surprising that she would call on the man who masterminded her 2008 defeat as she finds herself besieged by Republicans replaying Plouffe’s greatest hits.

Over the next couple of hours, Plouffe told Clinton and two of her closest advisers—longtime aide Cheryl Mills and John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and now Obama’s White House counselor—what she needed to do to avoid another surprise upset. His advice, according to two people with knowledge of the session, looked a lot like Obama’s winning strategy in 2012: First, prioritize the use of real-time analytics, integrating data into every facet of her operation in a way Clinton’s clumsy, old-school campaign had failed to do in 2008. Second, clearly define a rationale for her candidacy that goes beyond the mere facts of her celebrity and presumed electability, rooting her campaign in a larger Democratic mission of economic equality. Third, settle on one, and only one, core messaging strategy and stick with it, to avoid the tactical, news cycle-driven approach that Plouffe had exploited so skillfully against her in the 2008 primaries.

In Plouffe’s view, articulated in the intervening years, Clinton had been too defensive, too reactive, too aware of her own weaknesses, too undisciplined in 2008. His team would goad her into making mistakes, knowing that run-of-the-mill campaign attacks (like Obama’s claim she merely had “tea,” not serious conversation, with world leaders as first lady) would get under her skin and spur a self-destructive overreaction (Clinton responded to the tea quip by falsely portraying a 1990s goodwill trip to Bosnia with the comedian Sinbad as a dangerous wartime mission). She was too easily flustered.

Plouffe’s last and most pressing point was about timing. A couple of weeks earlier, Clinton had told an audience in Mexico City, “I am going to be making a decision … probably after the first of the year, about whether I’m going to run again or not.” The comment alarmed top Democrats: The Republican attack machine was already revving up, running anti-Hillary focus groups to figure out her vulnerabilities, dispatching opposition researchers to Arkansas, churning out anti-Hillary books and creating Fox News-fodder talking points to cast her State Department tenure as a failure and her campaign-to-be as a third-term extension of Obama’s increasingly unpopular presidency.

Now Plouffe, with the politesse of a man accustomed to padding around a president, implored her to start assembling a campaign as soon as possible and to dispense with the coy fiction that she’s not running in 2016. “Why not?” he asked. “They are already going after you.”

[snip]

Can she do it? After months of anodyne sit-downs promoting her book, Clinton finally seems to be heeding some of Plouffe’s advice, using her appearances for candidates late in the 2014 midterms as a dry run for her own 2016 message, a mix of the new Democratic populism, feminism—and old-fashioned Republican-bashing.

They, Obama’s top henchmen, are in Hillary’s head. In 2008 Obama’s thugs and Big Media allied to stop Hillary and they’re at it again. Hillary Clinton is now taking advice from her enemies. Hillary Clinton should reject those whose only interest is that Hillary Clinton be a Palestine style human shield for Barack Obama.

The rest of the Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman article is a reiteration of all the stupid attacks against Hillary Clinton. This is all an attempt to hide the only attack that will destroy Hillary Clinton 2016: tie Hillary to Barack Obama.

The only attack that will destroy Hillary Clinton 2016 is one that ties Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama. 2008 was not a failure of “analytics” it was a story of Big Media protection of Barack Obama and hatred of Hillary Clinton. Now, make Hillary Clinton even smell like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton 2016 is doomed.

But the attempt to tie Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama is not only an attack by Republicans/conservatives. It is Barack Obama and Barack Obama cultists who most want to tie Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama and use Hillary as a human shield to protect Barack Obama.

Shortly after Tuesday’s elections Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman tried again:

Even before networks officially declared a Republican majority in the Senate, Democrats were openly saying they hope Clinton will declare for 2016 soon after Election Day.

That sentiment is about to become overwhelming, as the party tries to recover from an election night hangover that’s worse than most operatives on either side had anticipated. The evening, almost entirely devoid of bright spots for Democrats, was a shellacking for President Barack Obama. It will only accelerate the party’s look ahead to its next leader, especially among donors, who want someone to rally around.

Clinton has spent two years as the prohibitive Democratic front-runner in the polls despite keeping politics largely at arm’s length until the end of the midterms. Some of her advisers have suggested opening an exploratory committee this year to allow her to raise money sooner, while others are adamant that she should wait until next year.

The advisers Hillary Hater Maggie Haberman cites who want Hillary Clinton to declare right after November 21st’s meeting are all Obama henchmen. These Obama cultists wanted and to a large extent got Hillary to immolate herself in 2014. Now these Obama cultists want Hillary to take on some of the Obama stink on the elections. These Obama cultists want Hillary to fight the Republican congress for two years and be a human shield for Barack Obama.

More from Hillary Hater Haberman:

Some Democrats said Tuesday night that Clinton will want to wait a bit to let the 2014 midterms pass, and to get some distance between herself and a bloodbath for her party. She also genuinely doesn’t seem ready to flip a switch on a campaign: A number of decisions still remain about staffing and, more importantly, messaging.

But others believe Clinton can’t afford to be coy about her intentions beyond the next few weeks, and forming an exploratory committee without an official announcement will not satisfy some donors and activists.

She can run against Washington more easily now

Clinton’s major problem was always going to be running as the candidate of the two-term party in power. Separating from Obama poses major risks for a Democrat who had trouble with portions of the base in 2008 and who served in the administration for four years.

The fact that Tuesday’s election that was seen largely as a statement against Obama may give Clinton some wiggle room with her own base to create distance from him. But a newly minted Republican Senate helps her to solve the problem of how to run against Washington. [snip]

A GOP-held Senate gives her a clear point of contrast to run against.

That’s what the Obama cultists want: Hillary Clinton to fight the Republican congress and be a human shield for Barack Obama. Hillary should stink herself up and help Obama and Obama supporter Reid??? Let’s bring up that bit from up top in our article “Hillary Clinton— who could divert attention from the White House and allow him to attack multiple crises without the klieg-light scrutiny. Be a human shield for Barack Obama Hillary and you become irredeemably stupid.

Al Gore was irredeemably stupid when he ran away from Bill Clinton in 2000. In 2000 Bill Clinton was a popular president with a strong economy and many achievements. Al Gore was stupid. But Barack Obama ain’t Bill. Barack Obama is hated and is better known as Ebola Obama with an Ebola Obama Economy. Josh kraushaar made a good case as to why the Obama thugs were wrong when they wanted to tie Obama Dimocrats to Obama:

White House in Denial: President Obama Is Costing Democrats Control of the Senate

The administration insists that vulnerable Democrats should have supported him more. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

No one should tie themselves to Ebola Obama. Hillary and Hillary Clinton 2016 must run away from Ebola Obama.

So what is going on and what does Hillary need to wake up to? (1) Obama henchmen want Hillary to be Barack Obama’s human shield. While Obama golfs Hillary will be under attack by Republicans who will be aided by Obama thugs who will feed Republicans and Big Media information with which to attack Hillary. (2) Some Hillary supporters in the political consulting class want the money flow to start to drip into their pockets. (3) Big Media wants the money to flow into their advertisement coffers too as well as protect Barack Obama with Hillary as the human shield and target.

There are some Hillary supporters, like us, who try to shake Hillary awake from her stupor. We’re not alone:

Clinton Allies Resist Calls to Jump Early Into 2016 Race

Veteran Hillary Clinton advisers say she shouldn’t accelerate her early 2015 timetable for announcing whether she’ll run for president, despite calls from prominent backers of President Barack Obama for her to enter the race soon after Tuesday’s congressional elections.

In interviews and e-mail exchanges, six political operatives closely aligned with Clinton offered up overlapping lists of reasons why they don’t expect her to jump in this year. [snip]

“Can’t we get through the holidays first?” asked Paul Begala, the strategist who helped Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992 and is a consultant for the Clinton-backing super-PAC Priorities USA. “Do we really need to deny her her first Christmas with her first granddaughter? Really?”

Such is the desperation amongst real Hillary Clinton supporters that we are forced to try to wake up Hillary Clinton with rancid appeals to grandmotherhood. But Obama thugs are in Hillary’s head and everything must be done to wake Hillary up from stupid:

The mostly behind-the-scenes fight revolves around the question of what’s best for the party now and for trying to keep the White House in 2016. But it breaks down mostly along an old fault line: Clinton versus Obama.

In September, David Plouffe, the architect of Barack Obama’s 2008 primary victory over Clinton, advised her in a private session that she should make her run official sooner rather than later, and mega-donor Steve Mostyn said “if Hillary is going to run, it would be best to do it quickly post-election,” according to recent reports in Politico. The New York Times also reported last month that Clinton is getting pressure to rally the party right after the midterms by jumping into the presidential race.

Mostyn and his wife Amber gave $3 million to the super-PAC Priorities USA to help re-elect Obama in 2012, and they were backers of John Edwards in 2008 before Steve Mostyn began donating to Obama that year. They are now max-out donors — the super-PAC limits contributions to $25,000 — for the super-PAC Ready for Hillary, which has solicited support from contributors previously associated with Obama, as well as longtime Clinton contributors.

Fancy that, Obama contributors want Hillary to make herself a target and become Obama’s human shield. To that end Plouffe sticks in the knife with the “trust” issue:

The campaign he ran against her in 2008 operated on the premise that voters didn’t trust her, a view that could persist if Clinton is perceived to be pretending not to run while she appears to be doing just that.

Brian Wolff, a former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee who is a longtime supporter of both Clintons, said the former Secretary of State would do well to keep her own counsel, rather than listen to what Obama’s strategists want.

“Those people advised him well in winning the presidency, but clearly haven’t been consistent on advising him well since,” Wolff said of Plouffe and other Obama strategists. “Hillary doesn’t need their advice. She’s got a great team around her.

Plouffe didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Hooray for Brian Woolff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, by the way, Plouffe was up to his tricks today in the New York Times:

“We shouldn’t just assume that the Obama voters will automatically come out for Democratic presidential candidates,” cautioned David Plouffe, Mr. Obama’s former campaign manager.

Why are we writing this? Why did we write Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged?? Why did we write The Hillary Clinton 2016 Muddled Message Mess? It’s because of this:

The juxtaposition of Clinton’s plans with those who want her to announce sooner rather than later will be in sharp relief in Manhattan on November 21.

Ready for Hillary is convening a donor conference that day at the Sheraton Times Square, where the Clinton Global Initiative holds its annual summits. [snip]

One Democratic strategist with ties to the Clintons said she should let the situation settle down after the midterms rather than associating herself with losses that will otherwise be blamed on Obama. [snip]

If she can stand back as Republicans begin jockeying for 2016, she’ll benefit, this adviser said, adding that the challenge for Clinton will be to energize her support base without getting overexposed in 2015.

That has been a danger of her recent barnstorming for Democratic candidates, which, along with a bumpy book tour this summer, has hampered her national approval ratings.

“She has been on the stump, which is going to knock down the apolitical luster she gained as Secretary of State and drag her poll numbers back to Earth,” Begala said. “I suspect she thinks that’s worth it to help all those good Democrats.”

We’ll end with this bit of wisdom to shake Hillary Clinton awake from her stupors and to shake away those Obama thugs who are in her head:

Another adviser, who worked with Clinton at State, said he thinks she’ll wait as long as possible before making an announcement, provided that she plans to run. Those who are advising her otherwise, he said, are pursuing their own agendas.

Now, that is smart.

Wake up Hillary, you have nothing to lose but your oppressors.

#Election2014 Aftermath: Please Republicans… Do This One Thing….

The Obaminations are legion. They have to be fought immediately. We know that. We know that ObamaCare, illegal immigration amnesty, the Obama scandals, IRS targeting of citizens… these are all important issues Republicans must tackle as soon as possible.

But there is an issue of such paramount importance that it must go to the forefront in the battle against treacherous Barack Obama. This issue has the added benefit that it can be successfully fought and won because so many Obama Dimocrats will likely join with Republicans to fight Obama.

The issue that cannot wait and must be at the forefront of the Republican battle against Obama is a nuclear Iran:

In audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security adviser to President Obama, said an Iran deal would be the Obamacare of the second term.

The Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes spoke with Fox News about the implications of the Rhodes’ comments.

“It definitely gives you a sense of just how important the administration sees a deal with Iran.” Hayes said. “I mean, remember what the administration did to pass health care. They twisted arms, they gave favors. The president wasn’t going to take anything less than full, comprehensive health care reform.”

Rhodes touched on the developing strategy to accomplish such a deal by going behind Congress’s back: “We’re already kind of picking through how do we structure a deal so we don’t have to require legislative action. And there are ways to do that.”

This strong-arm strategy is already in play.

Coupled with Jeffrey Goldberg’s piece on the shattered U.S.-Israeli relationship, it is clear the Obama administration pressured Benjamin Netanyahu against launching preemptive airstrikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.

The Republican soon-to-be-majority in the U.S. Senate along with their fortified army in the House of Representatives must make it their top priority to defeat this Barack Obama fifth column move to assure that Iran acquire nuclear weapons.

Republicans in the House and Senate should move to defund any and all activities in the State Department, White House, Pentagon, in any and all agencies that plot to negotiate with Iran in any way without notification to the American Congress and approval by the Congress.

Barack Obama would threaten to veto, then veto, any such law passed by Congress. But we believe that even prominent Obama Dimocrats such as Senator Charles Schumer and Senator Robert Menendez would bolster Republicans and vote to override an Obama veto. Robert Menendez seeks to stop the threat to American security of a nuclear Iran:

WASHINGTON, DC. – U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), joined by 25 U.S. Senators, introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, bipartisan legislation proposing prospective sanctions on Iran should the regime violate the interim Joint Plan of Action agreed to in Geneva or should Iran fail to reach a final agreement.

The legislation was co-sponsored by twenty-six senators, including: Senators Menendez, Kirk, Schumer, Graham, Cardin, McCain, Casey, Rubio, Coons, Cornyn, Blumenthal, Ayotte, Begich, Corker, Pryor, Collins, Landrieu, Moran, Gillibrand, Roberts, Warner, Johanns, Hagan, Cruz, Donnelly, Blunt and Booker.

The prospective sanctions legislation requires further reductions in purchases of Iranian petroleum and applies additional penalties to strategic elements of the Iranian economy, to include the engineering, mining and construction sectors.

The Menendez legislation was proposed before the treacherous audio recording of Obama henchman Benjamin Rhodes was uncovered. By now any friend of Israel must understand that the greatest threat to Israel and American interests is Barack Obama:

“Bottom line is, this is the best opportunity we’ve had to resolve the Iranian issue diplomatically, certainly since President Obama came to office, and probably since the beginning of the Iraq war,” Rhodes said. “So no small opportunity, it’s a big deal. This is probably the biggest thing President Obama will do in his second term on foreign policy. This is healthcare for us, just to put it in context.” [snip]

Rhodes also said the White House wants to avoid congressional scrutiny of any deal.

“We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away,” Rhodes said. “And there are ways to do that.”

That is similar to what an unnamed senior administration official told David Sanger of the New York Times last week for a piece headlined “Obama Sees an Iran Deal That Could Avoid Congress”: “We wouldn’t seek congressional legislation in any comprehensive agreement for years.”

White House spokesman Eric Schultz denied the Times story. But it is not as though the Obama White House has fallen out of love with executive action.

The interim deal with Iran struck in November 2013, in which the administration traded sanctions relief worth billions of dollars for promises to limit nuclear fuel production, was extended in July and is now scheduled to lapse on November 24. [snip]

Fear that the chances of some sort of dangerous and misguided détente with Iran are high, and that they increase if Republicans capture the Senate and improve their majority in the House. Fear that the worse things get for Obama at home, the better the odds that he will hand the keys of the Middle East to Ayatollah Khamenei.

Fear that Obama sees an Iran deal not just as health care reform for the second term, but as his version of George W. Bush’s surge: a Hail Mary pass thrown in the fourth quarter in a long-shot attempt to salvage a legacy.

Iran is Obama’s Iraq. It occupies the same place in the thinking of his administration that Iraq held in his predecessor’s. The desire for détente with Iran, for comity and diplomatic accord between longtime enemies, for a new Middle East in which security is left to regional stakeholders, and Shiite and Sunni alike see the United States as “evenhanded” in its treatment of Israelis and Palestinians, holds immense sway over the alliance of progressives and realists that conduct American foreign policy. It has for a decade.

“The support group should actively engage Iran and Syria in its diplomatic dialogue, without preconditions,” stated the report of the 2006 Iraq Study Group, authored in part by Ben Rhodes. [snip]

Can’t you just see Obama and Jarrett, kicking back after a few glasses of Bordeaux at Restaurant Helen, rhapsodizing over the president’s unique perspective on the global south, quoting lines from Argo, visualizing the day he makes the first presidential visit to Tehran since Carter? For six years the White House has been careful not to provide the Iranians with any reason to reject negotiations, to prevent his fantasy from becoming real. To the contrary: It has been solicitous of Iran and Syria, in a demonstration of its willingness to address their grievances. [snip]

These decisions are not made in light of the national security interests of the United States. They are made to keep alive President Obama’s dream of peace with Iran. And the purpose of these decisions isn’t to mollify American politicians. It’s to satisfy Iranian ones.

A nuclear Iran is an existential threat to Israel and the United States.

A nuclear Iran could not only instigate an Holocaust which would erase Israel, a nuclear Iran would blackmail the entire Middle East and choke vital resources from the West. That is why the issue of a nuclear Iran should be the linchpin in a Republican strategy against Barack Obama.

Once Obama’s back is broken on the nuclear Iran issue, more and more Obama Dimocrats will leave his grasp and vote to override more vetoes. A well developed strategy by Republican friends of Israel could bring together two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate to oppose Obama.

This must be done and it must be done before November 24 or as soon as Republicans ascend to leadership in the new Congress.

According to the NYT: Obama doesn’t feel “repudiated” by crushing defeat of his party. Barack Obama must be educated that indeed he has been “repudiated” and is now an object of scorn an ridicule (as an astounding article of Obama Dimocrats mocking Obama proves). Breaking his hands on foreign policy and particularly on negotiations with Iran is the best and most necessary way to school him.

On Tuesday night Barack Obama was repudiated by the American people. Victories for Republicans came in some of the most unlikely places. On Tuesday night Obama was ‘deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters’. Still Obama does not feel “repudiated”.

On Tuesday night every single one of Barack Obama’s policies went down to defeat.

Every single one.

It’s over.

We hope for change. The place for Republicans to start, the first place to bring needed change is Iran policy. From there more majorities can be crafted to override Obama vetoes.

Barack Obama has been repudiated by the American people. Now the American congress must forcefully teach Barack Obama that he will not be allowed to destroy America. Or Israel.

WAVE Bye-Bye Obama – America Bitch-Slaps Ebola Obama

Our election day and election night analysis has thus far been on target. Our comments section has been so on target with analysis of results too.

The night has been full of bitch slaps of Ebola Obama. Mitch McConnell won with double digits (his victory might usher in a right to work law in Kentucky). Scott Walker has beaten back all odds and once again won his election as he prepares for Walker 2016. In both these states Big Labor has taken a bloody beating.

In the House of Representatives Republicans have double digit wins.

There will be a runoff race in Louisiana but the eventual winner there will be the Republican (with 51% of the vote in, the Gooper is ahead of race-baiter Mary Landrieu). So add one more to the GOP win column.

The surprise of the night has been Virginia. With 96% of the vote in the race is almost tied. Most expected a double digit win for Obama Dimocrat Mark Warner. However this one turns out, Gillespie’s issue campaign bloodied Obama Dimocrat Warner badly.

As of 10:30 p.m. ET Republicans have flipped 5 senate seats and thus far lost none of their incumbents. Georgia appears to be a clear win for the Republican in the manner of Kentucky. No runoff will be required. Even in Kansas with 32% of the vote in Republican Roberts is over 50% in a three man race. [Just as we prepare to publish Fox News projects Republican Roberts has indeed won.]

Tonight reminds us of Obama thug Robert Gibbs’ appearance on Meet the Press on March 16, 2014.

Gibbs Warns Obama: If You Lose The Senate, “The Party’s Over”

ROBERT GIBBS: If [President Obama] doesn’t get, as I said, more involved in raising money, in getting voters excited, we know as you said that Obamacare is going to bring Republicans out. What issues can the president try to put on the table to get Democrats excited? If he doesn’t get more involved in raising money and making this a choice as Dan Pfeiffer said, you lose the Senate and if you lose the Senate, turn out the lights because the party’s over.

Here at Big Pink, the party is just beginning. But for bitch slapped Ebola Obama, turn out the lights, the party’s over.

November 4th, 2014

Election Day: Obama Policies On The Ballot – Every Single One

Every Obama policy is on the ballot today. Every single Obama policy is on the ballot today. Barack Obama campaigned on the premise that all his policies are on the ballot today. Every Republican campaigned against Obama’s policies. The choice is very clear today.

Today America will either reject Barack Obama and his policies or endorse Barack Obama and his policies.

It’s going to be an update kind of day. As election returns begin to come in we will update even more frequently.

Unlike the conventional wisdom we think the night’s results will be quickly determined. The first series of states to close polls will tell us a great deal. If, for instance, Republicans win in East Coast states that they were supposed to lose because they were behind in the polls, then it’s going to be a good night for Republicans. If the Obama Dimocrats win in places they should lose then it will be a good day for corruption and flim-flams.

If the first series of returns are tight then expect a long night that might not be resolved until the last drug store has sold it’s last pill – in other words: Alaska.

But we think the races will come in fast and, um, furious.

At 6:00 p.m. on the East Coast some Kentucky and Indiana polls will close. If McConnell wins, as we expect, then the night’s results will likely track with our expectations. If Grimes wins it will be a grim night as Lucy once again grabs the football away from Republicans. Look to Jefferson County for clues. Grimes should win big there (minimum 60%). If she doesn’t win big there she won’t win anywhere Ditto Fayette County.

As we have written before, a loss for Obama Dimocrats in the state legislature will also mean Kentucky will become the 25th state to be a right-to-work state. Big Labor might hit the tipping point to death tonight in Kentucky.

At 7:00 p.m. ET all polls close in Indiana and Kentucky. Also parts of Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Vermont, and Virginia close. Jackpot!

Florida voters lose no matter the governor they choose. A Republican victory there will be a straw in the wind that might or might not indicate something – most likely a good night for Republicans elsewhere. A big Republican win would be a strong indicator that it is going to be a good night for Republicans. For Obama Dimocrats to win Crist better win solidly (60% plus) in Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, and Pinellas counties.

Also in Florida the race results for Obama Dimocrat Joe Garcia in the 26th CD will bear watching. Ditto Patrick Murphy in the 18th CD.

In Georgia Obama Dimocrat dynasties are on the line. Jimmy Carter’s grandson running for Governor and Sam Nunn’s daughter running for U.S. Senate (in an election which requires 50% + 1 to win and not require a runoff election in January) will likely lose (either tonight or in the runoff). Outright Republican wins here tonight will be strong clues of a big night for them elsewhere look to Gwinnett County for a necessary big win for Nunn if she is to win). The 12th CD results (a D seat) will also provide entrails to read on nationwide results.

New Hampshire will mostly close at 7. Obama Dimocrat Jeanne Shaheen should win if the polls are correct. But if Brown wins (we think he has an excellent chance to do so) then it is all over for Obama and his policies which are on the ballot tonight.

Also in New Hampshire watch the 1st CD. Obama Dimocrat Carol Shea-Porter should lose to Frank Guinta. In the 2nd CD a defeat for Anne Kuster by Marilinda Garcia would be a bell ringer tolling defeat for Obama Dimocrats nationwide. Same holds true in the governor’s race. If Obama Dimocrat Hassan unexpectedly loses (or performs weakly) to Havenstein, bolt the door Louise.

In South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley should win. If the man who called her a “whore” wins then Obama Dimocrats will have a good whoring night.

In Virginia, Obama Dimocrat Mark Warner should easily win against Ed Gillespie. If victory comes with a slim margin that would be an ominous indication for Obama Dimocrats nationwide. If Ed Gillespie impossibly wins – it means Obama Dimocrats can forget about bolting the door because the door will be ablaze and nationwide massive defeats are on the way. Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William counties in the north will be the last to report and decisive. The swing 10th CD will provide weak clues to nationwide results if the GOP (Foust) loses here (to Comstock).

At 7:30 p.m. ET North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia polls close. Obama Dimocrat Kay Hagen better win here or Republicans will have a massive wave to surf on. So much is at stake here, so many future plans on the line, that a defeat here will have national implications for years to come. Wake County better come in big (55-69%) for Hagen.

In Ohio Governor John Kasich will win an “epic victory”. Expect Republican sweeps throughout the state. As goes Ohio so goes the nation.

West Virginia is an easy win for the GOP. Anything less means trouble. In the 3rd CD Obama Dimocrat Nick Rahall should lose. The 2nd CD should also, despite Obama Dimocrat efforts, stay GOP. Any surprises here and Lucy takes the football.

At 8:00 p.m. ET Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, the rest of Florida, Illinois, the CT zones of Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, the ET zones of Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, all of New Hampshire, New Jersey, the CT zones of North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, the CT zones of South Dakota, Tennessee, the CT zones of Texas, and D.C. close.

The races we’ll watch are the weird race for governor in Connecticut. Obama Dimocrat Governor Malloy might lose to gooper Tom Foley. It’s a deep blue state so it means something. GOP victories in the Obama Dimocrat 4th and 5th CDs will also mean trouble for Obama Dimocrats nationwide.

Obama’s deep blue state of Illinois might get a GOP governor (Bruce Rauner) to replace Obama Dimocrat Pat Quinn, which will bedevil Barack. CDs to watch are the Obama Dimocrat 10th and 12th (which should go GOP) as well as the 11th and 17th – any victories here and Republicans have the football, not Lucy.

The big question mark this election season is Kansas. Governor Brownback is in trouble as is Senator Roberts. If both win it’s great news for the GOP. If Roberts loses then the GOP will need, not just want, wins in some of the blue states like New Hampshire, Iowa, or Colorado. If Roberts wins any victories in these states is gravy on the potatoes, cherries on the sundae.

A GOP victory in the governor’s race in Maine will indicate the north east firewalls are breached. It could indicate the 2nd CD which Obama Dimocrats should win could also go to the goopers.

That anyone is even talking about Maryland is a sign of the carnage caused by Ebola Obama. Obama Dimocrat Anthony Brown better win or Obama will cry.

That anyone is even talking about Massachusetts has Chappaquiddick Chauffeur Ted Kennedy drinking in his grave. Republican Charlie Baker might win here and the Obama Dimocrat firewalls will be on fire. Look to the 6th CD and the 9th CD for more Obama Dimocrat disasters.

In Michigan the goopers might keep the governor’s mansion, or not. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land once had a chance of winning here but that chance has largely evaporated. If Land even comes close to shore it will be good news for the GOP. If she wins… we run out of analogies, superlatives, and metaphors.

In New Jersey Cory Booker’s margins will provide some data as to the GOP tide or wave. Republicans should win the 3rd CD away from Obama Dimocrats if their ship comes in.

In Pennsylvania the Obama Dimocrat Tom Wolf should easily beat the Republican governor Tom Corbett. If the race is tight or Corbett holds on then nothing is safe for Obama Dimocrats. Watch the 6th and 8th CDs for any signs of unexpected down ballot help by a Tom Wolf victory.

In Rhode Island the GOP has a teeny-tiny chance of victory in the governor’s race. If that chance grows into three cherries on the slots, then it is a wave for the goopers.

South Dakota should be an easy victory for the GOP. If anything unexpected to happen to help Obama Dimocrats is to happen – expect it here.

In Texas it’s GOP heaven. Anything else will mean trouble for Team Red.

Arkansas should be a GOP win for Tom Cotton over Mark Pryor. If not…. We’ll also look to see what happens in the 2nd CD. Obama Dimocrats think they have a chance in the 2nd.

At 9:00 p.m. ET polls close in Arizona, Colorado, all of Kansas, Louisiana, all of Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, the rest of North Dakota, the rest of South Dakota, all of Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

We’ll be watching the following:

Obama Dimocrats should lose the 1st, 2nd and 9th CDs in Arizona.

In Colorado Mark Udall will lose. If he doesn’t then something is wrong with pre-election polls or else Obama Dimocrats are in election theft mode. The Obama Dimocrat passed Colorado election law is a burglars tool for election theft. Cory Gardner tonight will become Senator Cory Gardner.

Second Amendment enemy Governor John Hickenlooper is also on the ballot. If Hickenlooper loses to a gooper it will not be a great surprise but a surprise nevertheless.

In Louisiana Obama Dimocrat race-baiting Senator Mary Landrieu will lose tonight or in the runoff. As in Georgia an outright GOP win that thereby avoids a runoff election will indicate a big or massive GOP 2014 wave. Look to Jefferson Parish to indicate a Landrieu loss overall if she does not win here.

In Minnesota there once was a chance for Obama Dimocrat Governor Mark Dayton as well as Obama Dimocrat Al Franken to lose. No more. Any GOP victory here or a close race for the senate will indicate a good GOP night. We’ll also look at developments in the 7th and 8th CDs for Obama Dimocrat losses.

Surprise! We’ve even looking at election results in New York state. The 1st, (GOP) 11th, and 24th CDs should go or stay GOP. The 18th CD should stay Obama Dimocrat but there is a chance for a flip here which would be yet another indicator of a good GOP night.

The Wisconsin governor race has 2016 implications. A Walker win is big news. The legislature will stay GOP so a loss will not be a disaster for the GOP but a calamity for Walker. A Walker win and he becomes a strong 2016 contender. Is it too early to speculate Walker/Kasich?

At 10:00 p.m. ET polls close in the mountain zones of Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, the mountain zones of Oregon, and Utah.

It’s all about Iowa at this time. Joni Ernst should win. If Ernst loses the big loser is the Des Moines Register poll’s fall from the heavens. If Ernst loses it will be a great hurt for the GOP. She has a great future if she wins but if she loses she’ll be watching On The Waterfront mouthing the famous line by Marlon Brando alongside Mitch McConnell.

In Iowa the 1st and 2nd CDs should also fall to the GOP if there is a GOP wave or tide.

In Montana the Republicans will win. A victory here for Dims and the Obama’s will be sipping Champagne.

In Nevada the 4th CD should go red.

In Utah Mia Love should replace an Obama Dimocrat. If not, the wave is a weak ripple.

At 11:00 p.m. ET California, Hawaii, all of Oregon, and Washington polls close.

In California the Obama Dimocrats in the 7th, 26th, 36th, and 52nd CDs are in trouble.

In Oregon Monica Wehby once had a chance of winning a Senate seat. No longer. Only with a meteor hitting the earth with consequent massive waves can she now win.

Even in Hawaii Obama Dimocrats are roasted pigs. The GOP has a chance to win the Governor’s mansion and the 1st CD.

In Washington the 1st CD is a potential GOP win.

Midnight will find the majority of polls close in Alaska and all the polls in Alaska will shut down at 1:00 p.m. ET. The GOP should win the senate seat away from Senator Mark Begich.

In every state, on every ballot, Barack Obama and his policies are on the ballot. The Obama Dimocrat party is in shambles.
