Yes, Nate Silver is a Joke

If you’ve ever gone on Nate Silver’s 538 Blog for The New York Times, you’ll see where reality ends, and fantasy begins.  It was more vividly displayed after the third and last presidential debate where I wrote, in a previous post, for Hot Air that “the headline for his [Silver’s] October 23 post after the last presidential debate read ‘Obama unlikely to get big debate bounce, but a small one could matter.”  Talk about grasping at straws.

Still, with the contest being so tight, any potential gain for Mr. Obama could matter. Mr. Obama was roughly a 70 percent Electoral College favorite in the FiveThirtyEight forecast in advance of the debate, largely because he has remained slightly ahead in polls of the most important swing states.

If Mr. Obama’s head-to-head polling were 2 percentage points higher right now, he would be a considerably clearer favorite in the forecast, about 85 percent. A 1-point bounce would bring him to 80 percent, and even a half-point bounce would advance his position to being a 75 percent favorite in the forecast.

Still, Mr. Obama should not take even that for granted. There have been some past debates when the instant-reaction polls judged one candidate to be the winner, but the head-to-head polls eventually moved in the opposite direction.

[…]

So, since Obama is ahead of Romney within the margin of error, why does that constitutes a win for the president?  I think most analysts would put a 2-4 point lead, for any candidate, in the toss-up column – especially for a battleground state.  Thus, making his 70% prediction of an Obama victory a nonsensical exercise.   Silver has states listed as toss-ups on the blog, but didn’t reference them here.

Furthermore, Silver’s notion that a half point ounce would increase Obama’s probability of re-election to 75%, a 1 point bounce to 80%, and a 2 point bounce to 85% is abjectly senseless.  He is lying and waiting for a miracle to happen.

However, while we shouldn’t expect much from a former Daily Kos blogger, he seems to be keeping liberal spirits high.  As Rosie Gray at BuzzFeed wrote on October 29:

Here in New York, Silver is very much on the tongue of the media and the left-leaning professional elite: Everyone from photographers to the managing partner of a major law firm cops to hitting refresh every hour to stay sane. And out in the Democratic hinterlands, the reaction is much the same.

“I was at a Halloween party last night and it was just kind of funny because we’re down here in South Carolina and none of these people are media people or DC kind of types,” said Teresa Kopec, a substitute teacher from Spartanburg, South Carolina. “And they were kind of whispering to each other, ‘But Nate Silver says…’”

“If people have heard of him down here in South Carolina that’s kind of amazing,” Kopec said.

Furthermore, Gray noted that “some Democrats, meanwhile, concede that their affection for the wonky analyst is less the details of his model than the consistency of his message.”  That being Obama wins – in every projection he runs.

With Silver catching flak it wasn’t long before his allies at The Washington Post, namely Ezra Klein, decided to jump in front of the train for his liberal colleague. “Before we get too deep in the weeds here, it’s worth being clear about exactly what Silver’s model — and that’s all it is, a model — is showing. As of this writing, Silver thinks Obama has a 75 percent chance of winning the election. That might seem a bit high, but note that the BetFair markets give him a 67.8 percent chance, the InTrade markets give him a 61.7 percent chance and the Iowa Electronic Markets give him a 61.8 percent chance. And we know from past research that political betting markets are biased toward believing elections are more volatile in their final weeks than they actually are. So Silver’s estimate doesn’t sound so off,” says Klein in his October 30 post on the WonkBlog.

Klein then goes on to trivialize the whole matter by saying:

…it’s just as important to be clear about this: If Mitt Romney wins on election day, it doesn’t mean Silver’s model was wrong. After all, the model has been fluctuating between giving Romney a 25 percent and 40 percent chance of winning the election. That’s a pretty good chance! If you told me I had a 35 percent chance of winning a million dollars tomorrow, I’d be excited. And if I won the money, I wouldn’t turn around and tell you your information was wrong. I’d still have no evidence I’d ever had anything more than a 35 percent chance.

There are good criticisms to make of Silver’s model, not the least of which is that, while Silver is almost tediously detailed about what’s going on in the model, he won’t give out the code, and without the code, we can’t say with certainty how the model works. But the model is, at this point, Silver’s livelihood, and so it’s somewhat absurd to assume he’d hand it out to anyone who asks

Here’s the catch.  We know his code.  In fact, anyone of us can replicate Silver’s methodology on Microsoft Office.   As Sean A. Davis, COO of Media Trackers, wrote in The Daily Caller on November 1:

Silver’s key insight was that if you used a simple simulation method known as Monte Carlo, you could take a poll’s topline numbers and its margin of error and come up with a probability forecast based on the poll. The effect of this method was to show that a 50-49 lead in a poll with 1,000 respondents wasn’t really a dead heat at all — in fact, the candidate with 50% would be expected to win two-thirds of the time if the poll’s sample accurately reflected the true voting population.

To a political world unfamiliar with mathematical methods that are normally taught in an introductory statistics course, Silver’s prophecy was nothing short of miraculous.

But was it? To find out, I spent a few hours re-building Nate Silver’s basic Monte Carlo poll simulation model from the ground up. It is a simplified version, lacking fancy pollster weights and economic assumptions and state-by-state covariance factors, but it contains the same foundation of state poll data that supports Nate Silver’s famous FiveThirtyEight model. That is, they are both built upon the same assumption that state polls, on average, are correct.

After running the simulation every day for several weeks, I noticed something odd: the winning probabilities it produced for Obama and Romney were nearly identical to those reported by FiveThirtyEight. Day after day, night after night. For example, based on the polls included in RealClearPolitics’ various state averages as of Tuesday night, the Sean Davis model suggested that Obama had a 73.0% chance of winning the Electoral College. In contrast, Silver’s FiveThirtyEight model as of Tuesday night forecast that Obama had a 77.4% chance of winning the Electoral College.

So what gives? If it’s possible to recreate Silver’s model using just Microsoft Excel, a cheap Monte Carlo plug-in, and poll results that are widely available, then what real predictive value does Silver’s model have?

That’s a very good question.   In the meantime, this is Silver’s Electoral College and Election forecasts, which were updated at 7pm on November 4.  Immerse yourself in the ignorant – or delusional – bliss.

 

Creepy: Florida- Crowd Chants ‘Hail Obama’

There are eerie similarities between Barack Obama and Adolph Hitler, and it appears as though Obama’s followers are going to a creepy, new level in Florida. In the 1930’s and 1940’s it was “Heil Hitler”, now, in 2012, it is “Hail Obama”.

For those who are not familiar with history, here is a quick note from Wikipedia:

Characteristic of a cult of personality, it was adopted in the 1930s by the Nazi Party to signal obedience to the party’s leader Adolf Hitler and to glorify the German nation and later the war effort.

If Obama is re-elected, I wonder if history will repeat itself once again. In Germany, the salute eventually became mandatory for citizens. Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic appears to have learned from their history, as the salute a criminal offense in all four countries now.

Even Slate’s Feminist Blog Finds The ‘Binders’ Meme Stupid

 

Even Slate Magazine’s feminist blog, Double X, which was co-founded by Hanna Rosin, who recently authored The End of Men, thinks the “binders full of women” meme is stupid.  Amanda Hess wrote on October 17 that she “agree[s] that Romney’s positions on health care, contraception, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act will do nothing to help women…binders stocked with intelligence on top-shelf female candidates, though? I’m cool with those. In a rush to discredit Romney’s position entirely, commenters are strangely spinning his underlying point—when female candidates don’t apply for jobs, employers should find them, and hire them about half the time—as somehow anti-feminist.”

Now, some groups, such as the bipartisan MassGap, noted that these “binders” were assembled before Romney was elected Governor, but it’s beside the point “because binders from feminist groups are easy for governors to trash,” according to Hess.  In all, Hess is  “more interested in what he [Romney] did with those candidates…[he] ‘appointed 14 women out of his top 33 senior-level appointments,’ which…is ‘reasonably impressive.’ Romney’s lieutenant governor and chief of staff were both women. That puts Romney’s record on hiring womenwell above the national average. Binders full of women mean cabinets full of women.”  I know, Romney is such a sexist, misogynist pig.

Granted, Hess refers to American politics as old boys’ club, but noted that Romney’s binder’s model could help women become more engaged in politics.  She cites “Women & Politics Institute Director Jennifer Lawless has found a serious discrepancy among how similarly-qualified men and women in political pipeline industries—law, policy, finance—rate their own viability as candidates….when Lawless talks to these reluctant women, she finds they have three major justifications for not throwing their hats into the ring: family responsibilities, self-doubt, and a lack of encouragement from above. Mitt Romney’s binders can help resolve two of those issues.”

In all, Hess “still found it powerful to watch the country’s most prominent Republican businessman and politician stand in front of millions of Americans and announce that stacking the deck with female candidates is not at odds with the capitalist impulse.”

Rage Against the Media

Pelosi, Reid, Obama and other “progressives” called the Tea Party “teabaggers”, “racists”, “astroturf”, “Nazis” ” and “extremists”. The Department of Homeland Security described the Tea Party as “right-wing extremists” and ”insurgents”, saying “Right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”

How long before members of Tea Parties are called “killers”?

Hasn’t that already happened? It was more than heavily inferred by the “progressive” Party Pravda after a nut job working solo shot “Gabby” Giffords.

How long before expressing dissent leads directly to arrest and torture?

Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground Central Committee meant to cause the collapse of the United States government. Ayers and his group would deal with resistant Americans by “establishing re-education centers in the south-west”. Those who refused to convert to Communism would be “eliminated”. As in: concentration camps would be used to kill 25 million Americans.

Consider this from Yahoo News, USA Today and ABC News:

“Congress could be least productive since 1947”

The story attacks the Republican House for a lack of legislative success.  This is typical of “progressives” who never miss an opportunity to parrot messages dictated by the George Soros funded Media Matters via Valerie Jarrett and the White House.

It might be statistically true that “Congress is on pace to make history with the least productive legislative year in the post-World War II era,” but to insinuate this is the fault of the House Republican majority is fiction.

The U.S. Senate, under the failed “leadership” of “progressive” Harry Reid, has refused to allow a majority of House passed bills to even come to a vote in the U.S. Senate.

The reason so many believe the House is to blame for this are the lies spread by “progressive” shills like Yahoo News, USA Today, ABC News and their ilk.

Should the 112th Congress come to be “defined by partisan divisions and legislative failures”, the blame will rest squarely on Reid and his “progressive” co-conspirator in the Oval Office.  The “progressive” Senate majority has not even passed a budget in over three years.  They even voted down the one from the White House 97-0.  This is a clear dereliction of duty.

Thanks to the utter failure of their “progressive” policies, the only card left for them to play is vintage Saul Alinsky, blaming the right for problems caused by the left.  This has been the M O of “progressives” since they seized control of the Democratic Party.

The most egregious of lies propagated by the institutionalized “progressive” left is the one spoken by Nancy Pelosi during the TARP debate.  On September 28, 2008 Pelosi laid the blame for the economic collapse entirely on George W. Bush and failed Republican policies.  Sound familiar?  Obama’s using it against Romney daily.

The 2008 financial collapse was a direct result of failed “progressive” social engineering in the U.S. housing market.  For decades the U.S. has had nothing remotely resembling a free market in residential real estate.  Instead, “progressive” big government created monstrosities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac controlled over half of all U.S. mortgages.  For twenty years, Conservatives warned about the systemic risk Fannie and Freddie posed to the financial system but they were constantly thwarted by the left.  To this very day, the institutionalized “progressive” left denies the essential part Fannie and Freddie played in creating the housing bubble and causing the financial crisis.

Whether in the area of journalism or politics, once the facts are in members of the institutionalized “progressive” left prove themselves to be nothing more than bold faced, willfully deceitful psychopaths unfit to serve the public.

Be it Fast and Furious, the Benghazi terrorists, fudging the poll numbers or lying about the rate of inflation and unemployment, the so-called mainstream media is lying through its teeth to protect Obama and help his re-election.  Enough!  It is time to rage against the media!

“progressives”: No Puzzle

A teenager in Pakistan gets shot in the head by the Taliban.  She is flown to Britain for emergency medical attention and so she can be protected from the threatened follow up attacks.

All 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai wants is for girls in Pakistan to be able to attend school.

The Taliban has issued threats that state Malala will be a target in the future if she continues to promote what they describe as “Western thinking”.

http://customwire.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AS_PAKISTAN?SITE=VANOV&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-10-15-16-17-56

Meanwhile, “progressives” in America continue to cling to the “Islam is a religion of peace” fallacy their tenured, grey pony-tailed “progressive” college professors brainwashed them into believing.

So much so that the Obama White House is conducting a foreign policy based on the unfounded fairy tale that if westerners are just nice enough to people who will kill young girls for wanting to go to school, then Islamofascists will like and forgive the west for not being Islamists and not attack the west.

These “progressives” are the same group who believe the vaporous illusion that Islamofascists as reasonable people with whom it is possible to negotiate peace.

They are also the same crowd that insists on fomenting the lie that Conservatives are waging a war on women because Conservatives believe a thirty year old Georgetown University law school graduate should buy her own contraceptives.

Naturally, “progressives” remain steadfastly incapable of understanding why Conservatives find them a bit lacking in the perception, common sense and moral center departments.

You cannot fix stupid, but you can vote it out of office.

Be sure to vote it out of every single office at every level of government on November 6, 2012.

FOUNDING FATHERS HAUNT OBAMA

Founding Fathers Know Best, by Ross Edward Puskar. Hugo House Publishers, 2012 vii + 283 pp., Amazon price $17.95 paperback; $9.95 Kindle.

Have you ever wondered what America’s founding fathers would say to President Barack Obama? Imagine the rhetorical thunder that would ensue from that clash of philosophies. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting such a meeting then you’re in luck. Ross Edward Puskar brings them together in his book Founding Fathers Know Best.

Mr. Puskar’s first foray into political fiction cleverly inculcates American history with current events through a literary narrative that pays homage to Dickens A Christmas Carol. In Founding Fathers Know Best there is a club known as the President’s Club. The club is comprised of the spirits of deceased U.S. presidents, and it’s purpose is for the spirits to visit sitting Presidents so that they may impart their wisdom and counsel. As one may surmise the president of the club is George Washington, who personally selects the apparitions that visit each sitting president.

In the case of President Obama George Washington sends his A-team to visit the White House; the spirits of former presidents Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison. Given President Obama’s vision to transform America through his “hope and change” mantra over the course of seven evenings the three spirits endeavor to remind Mr. Obama of his obligations and responsibilities as president. Mr. Puskar imbues each founder with their own distinct personality as they embroil the President in their evening deliberations.

The spirits deconstruct for the President the negative impact his domestic and foreign policies have on America’s well being and reinforce to him his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. They educate him on America’s rich, proud heritage and strong moral fabric that has sustained it over troubled times. It’s a tall task for Messrs. Jefferson, Adams and Madison as they each take their turn to convince the obdurate President of his misguided principles and challenge his administration’s integrity.

Over the course of their seven visitations the three spirits confront President Obama on the gamut of challenges facing his administration from domestic and foreign policy, education, entitlements and unions to race relations, environmental issues, immigration reform, corruption, taxes and leadership qualities. It’s a pressure packed week of give and take as the spiritual incarnations of the founding fathers and the President passionately engage each other and debate solutions for the pressing issues facing America.

Founding Fathers Know Best is a quick and lively read that engrosses the reader in the heated exchanges between three paragons of American heritage and America’s most post-modern progressive president. Through those interactions the reader is also informed of eye-opening facts that may surprise even the most informed political junkie.

In Ross Edward Puskar’s maiden work he blends fun with facts. Founding Fathers Know Best will be enjoyed by young and old as a book that brings to life the timeless argument between preserving or changing America’s socio, economic and political cultures, and it is undertaken in a “spirited’ fashion.

Left-wingers are still ‘Hating Breitbart’

With Andrew Breitbart’s sudden and tragic passing in March of 2012, we on the right once again saw the utterly despicable joy elicited  from the institutional left upon hearing the news of his death.  I’m not even going to cite those tweets, but I’m sure you can all remember the pervasive grave stomping the left engaged in during that somber month.  They were happy because the point of the lance in this fight for a free and democratic press was gone.  The threat to their existence was erased.  Now, it was time for revenge for all of the embarrassment Breitbart rightfully inflicted on the left-wing of America.

However, what’s amusing is that the best the far left could do was blast tweets detailing their pleasure at his passing. It’s beyond sophomoric. This disdain and the crusade Andrew lead that provoked such strong reactions from liberals in America is the subject of Andrew Marcus and his documentary ‘Hating Bretibart.

Andrew Breitbart, according to his book Righteous Indignation, grew up a default liberal on the west ‘left’ coast.  It wasn’t until he saw the injustice being done to Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas that he thought something else was at work, especially in the way the media was reporting on the subject.  Breitbart had a saying akin to once we climb over the media’s pernicious wall of misinformation and have our voices heard – then democracy can truly flourish.

Charlie Spiering of The Washington Examiner wrote on October 8 that:

when Marcus speaks about the film, he takes the tone of a storm-chaser, who couldn’t stop following Andrew Breitbart sweep the country and sweeping up  everything in his path. That experience lasted two years, which Marcus still marvels about today.

“I was always very shocked at the things that would unfold in front of our cameras, but you know reliably every time we turned them on and he was around crazy stuff would happen,” Marcus said.

Marcus stumbled into Breitbart’s path as he began following the Tea Party, filming footage that he knew had the capacity to be a great documentary some day.

The film details the high marks of Breitbart’s war against the institutional left starting with the epic collapse of ACORN thanks to our happy warrior, James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and some crafty camera work.  They caught ACORN employees telling them how to cover up felonious activities on their tax forms.  Then, in 2010, there was the infamous and fabricated incident where Reps. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) and John Lewis (D-GA) alleged that the ‘n-word’ was hurled at them during the fight over health care reform.  In that same year, Breitbart exposed USDA official Shirley Sherrod for her racially charged remarksabout discriminating against white farmers – which lead to her termination.  Before her premature departure, she was the Georgia Director for Rural Development. Lastly, there was the ignominious tweet from then-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) – which lead to his resignation from Congress.  As a result, a Republican, Bob Turner, won his seat in a special election held in September of 2011.  It’s the first time a Republican held that congressional district since 1923.

Spiering reported that during the making of the documentary – Andrew would regard the film crew as his “bodyguards.”  Furthermore, “He knew two speeds: he knew outrage and fun,” Marcus says. ‘The journey he ended up on – he soon began to realize that the tactic that was used against him could be defeated, and by defeating it, by confronting that, it made him stronger.Breitbart’s consistent victories over the left spun into an incredible narrative, which Marcus admits, kept the project moving forward every time they thought it was finished.”

When filming did finish due to Andrew’s unexpected death on March 1, 2012, Spiering stated that Marcus “was ‘devastated’ by Breitbart’s death and realized he was suddenly tasked with the responsibility of one of Breitbart’s definitive stories. His group spent a great deal of time struggling with the proper way to address Breitbart’s death, but decided against editing the film to make it retrospective.”

The film masterfully captures Andrew doing what he loved most at work and his colorful and inimitable personality.  He wasn’t a racist, a propagandist, or a con artist. He was a patriot doing what the media class has failed to do, which is to report the news in a way that is accurate and devoid of the thinly veiled connotations that seek to divide and conquer the American people.  A horrifying aspect Andrew witnessed firsthand growing up within the belly of the Hollywood left.  He vehemently says in the first few minutes of the film that he’s sick of those tactics and that’s not the America he envisions.

It also shows him as a charismatic force in this fight to destroy the mainstream media.  He didn’t declare himself the ‘boss’ or ‘king’ of new media.  Anyone who had a cellphone, camera, laptop, or access to any facet of social media was a potential soldier.  Anyone who had those resources and went to work reporting on things the mainstream media omitted due to political bias or exposing the media for their complicity in burying the truth was welcomed into his “army.”

For the political left and their allies within the mainstream media, this was a disaster.  Breitbart knew their game.  He knew how they would respond to his attacks and how his attacks would decimate their narrative that seeks to establish a hyper-regulatory progressive state.  Breitbart was always a step ahead of them and it became highly frustrating, especially when their own attacks blew up in their faces.

A rather heated exchange was recorded during CPAC 2010 in Washington D.C. between Breitbart and Salon.com’s Max Blumenthal concerning his post– which presented a false narrative against O’Keefe.  The article claimed, frivolously, that James had racial issues and the piece was aimed to discredit his work on ACORN and any other ventures he may plan in the future.  It was an egregious hit piece.  Andrew rightfully called Blumenthal a “punk” and Larry O’Connor detailed how his entire story, line by line, was debunked in twenty-four hours.

While Andrew may be gone, the film is a nice homage to the man who influenced others to stand up to the deliberate political censorship occurring in the media and the corruption that exists within government on all levels.  It’s not a dirge or constructed as a curtain call in this war against the left-wing, the media who aid them, and government officials who try to cheat Americans from their place at the bargaining table.  It doesn’t inexplicably cut to black a la The Sopranos.  In all, I think if this film’s message could be described in one sentence – it would be from Andrew’s father-in-law, Orson Bean, who says “praise the lord and pass the ammunition.”  Andrew may be gone, but the fight goes on and there will only be one winner. #WAR

Hating Breitbart had it’s D.C. premiere on October 8 and will open in theaters on October 19.

The Plantation President and His Party (Conclusion)

Much of what I have discussed over the last two articles are what I believe to be a massive problem here within the United States. President Obama and his party are some of the most destructive individuals in American history.  Their ideology puts man above God.  Their belief in race and class is the basis for all of their rhetoric, and they do it not because they believe it will solve problems, but because they want to be in power, and they believe that the American people are to stupid to actually understand the issues that face this nation.  President Obama is one of the most divisive president in American history, he uses class warfare as his hallmark attack strategy, not only in his campaign but against America itself.  He looks down on those who love America and what she stands for.  President Obama and his party hate capitalism, free markets, and free people.

President Obama is the biggest liar that I have ever seen.  Each lie that he tells, he insults the intelligence of those of the American people.  President Obama’s belief in the individual does not exist, unless he is that individual.  President Obama believes that he is above the rest of the American citizens, which is evident by the lies and rhetoric that he tells during his speeches.  He treats the American population like children, or just a group of people as a means to his end.   President Obama and his party seek to destroy the independent individual through government programs, and creating a system of dependency, so that the individual needs government and cannot sustain on their own.

If President Obama actually cared about the individual, he would not seek to destroy the individual through his destructive economic practices and his evident disrespect of the constitution, religious liberty, and his constant attack on the success of the individual, such as the , “You didn’t build that” comment.   Another example that president Obama is destroying the life of individuals, is the devaluation of the dollar, by constantly printing money.  This lowers the purchasing power of the dollar, making it harder for the individual to provide for themselves and/or their family.  This then makes it harder for the individual to sustain current quality of life.  One way that this hurts the individual is the cost of oil, which then lowers the purchasing power of oil, the price of oil is fixed to the dollar, which raises the cost per gallon on that individual at the gas pump, which was $1.84 a gallon nationally in 2009, and now is currently around $3.50 a gallon.

President Obama’s ideology is one that believes that the Individual can be shaped and molded through government programs, institutions, and if that individual does not wish to be part of that system, they must be minimized, marginalized, and ultimately eliminated.  The left believes that their ideology can replace the teachings of the bible, by replacing government with God.

Since president Obama has taken office, the Left Wing Hate Machine has continued to use racially charged rhetoric in order to divide the American population.  President Obama, as the leader of their party has done nothing to suggest that he disagrees with this tactic, rather while on the campaign trail, he re-enforces that style of attack with his class warfare, which also divides Americans.  It creates resentment and hatred, envy, and greed.  What ever happened to that concept of uniting the American people from his 2008 campaign?

President Obama uses government handouts as “goodies” in order to enslave the citizens to the government plantation.  For example, the interest rates on student loans are set to a lower rate through force of government, therefore creating a situation that might entice an unsuspecting victim into a system they might not engage in if the “natural” interest rate was applied to that student loan.  This “candy” insults the intelligence of that individual, and proves that President Obama is just looking to grow the dependency of the individual on government, which enslaves that individual to government.  President Obama has begun his assault on the independent individual by increasing the amount of individuals on food stamps, President Obama is the food stamp president.  When he took office, the food stamp program had around 33 million people enrolled, now it is around 47 million people. That is 47 million people who have been forced onto the government plantation.

Left Wing Hate Machine, attacks the very essence of the individual every chance they get.  They wish to subvert the American system through legislation and racially charged remarks.  They wish to create a system that replaces God with Government, which was evident during the democratic national convention, which nominated our current president who said that he wishes to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America.  The Left Wing Government party hates the very existence of the constitution because it limits their ability to tell us how to live our lives.  They Left Wing Hate Machine is the party of “No Choice” because they limit what we put in our body, what we purchase, where we can go, what schools we can go to, what classes we can take.  However, when it comes to the life of the unborn, they attack that child and extinguish that flame of life, removing that individual’s “Choice.”  Even president Obama has assaulted the unborn and even the born children by voting for infanticide. Every action the Left Wing Hate Machine takes, seeks to destroy the very essence of America, They seek to create a heaven on earth, a utopian society where everyone is equal in all ways.  Everyone is not equal, everyone cannot do all things equally.  If everyone was equal in all ways, there would be no need for different jobs, professions, and interests, because everyone could do all things.  All men were created equal, equal in Gods eyes, provides equal opportunity, not equal stuff, not equal outcomes, not everyone has all things.  They seek to have government be the deciding and end result in how we live our lives.  What government can give, it can take away.

Why The Tea Party Matters

Tea Party principles are based on a belief in the U.S. Constitution.  Across America, a huge natural constituency exists for the bread-and-butter American issues of lower taxes, reduced government, a strong national defense, secure borders and a return to the traditional American values of: E Pluribus Unum, Liberty and in God we trust.

E Pluribus Unum means from many, one. It does not mean unquestioning acquiescence to multiculturalism and diversity.  Liberty means opportunity for all, not equality of results.  In God we trust means reliance upon the Creator of all things.  It does not mean passive acceptance of secularism, atheism or submissive surrender to “progressive” statist mandates.

The Tea Party movement began as a peaceful protest against big government, reckless government spending, high taxes and oppressive regulations. The Tea Party’s Contract From America expressed principles held by its members. The most basic being that “Our moral, political, and economic liberties are inherent, not granted by our government.”

The principles of the Tea Party were clearly expressed in the Contract:  Protect the Constitution, reject Cap & Trade, demand a balanced budget, enact fundamental tax reform, restore fiscal responsibility and Constitutionally limited government in Washington DC, end runaway government spending, defund, repeal and replace government-run health care, pass an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy policy, stop the pork, and stop the tax hikes.

The American idea, the shot heard round the world, is that We The People can govern ourselves.  By the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God we are entitled, by virtue of our humanity, to the maximum amount of Individual Liberties consistent with law and order, and to the Right of private ownership, not the least of which is the Right to own and decide for ourselves.  These Liberties and Rights are to be equally protected by a Constitutionally limited, representative government that derives its just powers from the consent of the governed.  This is a distinctly exceptional American idea.

These are the Tea Party’s principles, which today are largely viewed as being Conservative or “right wing”.  Adherence to these principles are shared by members of many political Parties, but rejected wholesale by the institutionalized “progressive” left movement, which has co-opted today’s Democratic Party.

If you are in the Tea Party, you believe in America.

If you believe in America, you belong in the Tea Party.

In an election where a decision will made between the American way of life and a nanny state “entitlement” society based on a European idea, the Tea Party Matters.

My Response To Obama’s #ForAll Photos

.

The Obama campaign has had ‘prominent’ Democrats tweet photos of themselves with words written on the back of their hands, such as “Obama Care”, “Medical Research”, and “For Our Kids”.

My problem is that the important issues are not being addressed by the Obama Administration, as well as the Obama campaign.

So here is my response:

What else needs to be said?

Barack Obama’s foreign policy approval numbers plunged in a recent poll.  This is no surprise at a time when NATO is pulling back in Afghanistan, a move that is heightening doubts about the future of that country.  NATO’s decision, which leaves Obama’s exit strategy in doubt, makes his claims of “progress” in that arena suspect at best.

While the Islamist world raged in the first week of a stark, full blown display of vehement, bloody hatred towards the United States, Barack Obama was jet setting to a party with Jay-Z and Beyonce, where he enjoyed the sight of a lavish 18-foot tall tower of gold French champagne bottles.  That was, until he was obligated to move the party to the CBS Late Show with David Letterman for a conversation that was so important that Obama simply could not find the time to meet with that pesky Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.

Oh yes, without a glimpses of a hint of a shadow of a doubt, Obama is the one and only candidate in this presidential race who is grounded, looks out for and cares for the little guy.

If you believe that, there is an exclusive ocean front property sale happening in Bolivia that is definitely not to be missed.

For the White House and the Obama re-election campaign, another day means another disaster.

Especially when additional evidence of his long term devotion to wealth redistribution surfaces:

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney rejected Obama’s views and policies by stating ‘We believe in free people and free enterprise, not redistribution’.  That statement exemplifies how Romney is escalated his attacks on Obama’s economic vision.  A vision that has led to two credit downgrades for the United States, long term unemployment for millions of Americans, reductions in wealth and earning power at a time of higher prices at the grocery story and escalating costs for energy.

Thanks to an embarrassingly unprofessional and utterly irresponsible news media, most Americans are oblivious to the fact that the number of able-bodied adults who are dependent on food stamps has doubled since Obama’s illegal Executive Order suspended the work requirement for welfare recipients.

What is the “mainstream media” focused on?

For ABC News, the headline is: Romney Tapes Give Way To The Not-So-Calm After The Storm

Of special note for MICHAEL FALCONE (@michaelpfalcone) and AMY WALTER (@amyewalter) are:

•ROMNEY TAPES GET THE SUPER PAC TREATMENT: That didn’t take long. The pro-Obama super PAC, Priorities USA Action, is quick out of the starting gate this morning with a new television ad featuring footage of Mitt Romney’s candid comments from a private fundraiser that has rocked the political world this week. The script of the ad, titled “Doors,” speaks for itself. A narrator says, “Behind these doors Mitt Romney calls half the American people….” And then the hidden-camera video of Romney finishes the sentence:  ”Dependent upon government, who believe they are victims.” The narrator returns: “Victims?  Behind these doors middle-class families struggle. And Romney will make things even tougher. Raising taxes by up to $2,000 to give multi-millionaires a $250,000 tax break.” And Romney again: “I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility…” The group says the ad is part of their $30 million effort to underscore the effects of Romney’s economic proposals, which is underway on television and online in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. WATCH: http://youtu.be/uaKIeR4Sn3k

•THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN RESPONDS WITH TWO LUMPS OF COAL: Today the Romney campaign released two new television ads focusing on what Team Romney is calling “President Obama’s war on coal.” According to a release from the campaign: The first ad titled “Way of Life.” In the ad a man says, “My family’s worked in the coal industry for over sixty years. This is the way of life we know. Policies that the current administration’s got is attacking my livelihood. Obama said he was going to bankrupt any new power plants that opened up that’s coal-fired and he’s keeping his promise. I got two young grandsons. I’m scared for their future, let alone mine. I support Mitt Romney.” WATCH: http://mi.tt/S34HBp In the second ad, “War on Coal,” the Republican nominee touts his support for the coal industry: “We have 250 years of coal,” Romney says in the spot. “Why wouldn’t we use it?” WATCH: http://mi.tt/RoxS7W

•REDISTRIBUTION POLITICS: The Romney and Obama campaigns are sparring today over “redistribution” — specifically an audio clip of President Obama from 1998 on the subject. WATCH: http://bit.ly/V99buI Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski sums up the argument the GOP is seeking to make today — and likely for some time to come: “While Governor Romney talks about promoting personal responsibility and hard work, promising to deliver recovery, President Obama believes in redistribution and government dependency.” The Romney campaign has already been pushing hard on this line of attack and there’s more to come today, campaign aides tell The Note. Yesterday Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt weighed in: “The Romney campaign is so desperate to change the subject that they’ve gone back to the failed playbook co-authored by Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber. Fourteen years ago, then-Senator Obama was making an argument for a more efficient, more effective government — specifically citing city government agencies that he didn’t think were working effectively.”

The world is burning, Obama is fiddling, and the “mainstream media”, more appropriately described as the “progressive” Party Pravda, is focused on attacking and smearing the GOP candidate on behalf of the “progressive” in the White House.

Is this what America wants?

On November 6, 2012, Americans decide.

White House, Press Corps Use Mid-East Crisis to Distract From Failing Economy

Barrack Obama and members of the institutionalized “progressive” left smear machine, otherwise known as the mainstream media, launched a series of seemingly coordinated attacks on GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  The White House and the press uncannily echoed each other while criticizing Romney for speaking in opposition to the Cairo Embassy’s apology to Islamists for “efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims” on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Obama attacked Romney for having “a tendency to shoot first and aim later”.  After firing that salvo, Obama was off to yet another fund raising event in Las Vegas, where he furthered the assault by saying “It appears that Gov. Romney didn’t have his facts right”.  Meanwhile, Obama’s campaign assailed Romney for using the “tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya” to “launch a political attack”.

It seems that for mysterious, unexplained reasons it has somehow slipped the minds of Obama and the Obama campaign that he politicized foreign policy back in 2008 by attacking George W. Bush and then GOP presidential candidate John McCain for troop deaths in Iraq and their support of the Iraq War.

Not only have the media and the White House been singing from the same sheet music, a discussion caught on an open microphone and recorded immediately before Romney’s Wednesday morning press conference clearly revealed the press corps coordinating hostile questioning aimed at discrediting Romney and knocking him off stride.

While the White House and the “progressive” Party Pravda were busy diverting the public’s attention towards Mitt Romney and away from the sagging economy, new claims for jobless benefits rose again, while a spike in wholesale gasoline costs drove consumer prices higher.

Economists had predicted claims for unemployment benefits would rise to 370,000.  However according to the Labor Department, initial claims rose to a seasonally adjusted 382,000.  That is the highest in two months.  Consistent with a pattern seen since Obama took office, figures from the prior week were again revised upwards, showing 2,000 more applications than originally reported.

For the first time since the Great Depression, the officially reported unemployment rate has been stuck above 8 percent for over three years.

The producer price index, as measured by the Labor Department, jumped 1.7 percent in August.  That increase was the biggest gain in three years.   Gas prices soared by 13.6 percent.  Steep increases in eggs and dairy costs drove food prices up 0.9 percent.

The median income of American households continues to decline on Barack Obama’s watch, dropping to its lowest level since 1995.  According to Census Bureau data, 2011 median income fell to $50,054.  That is 1.5 per cent below the 2010 level and 4.1 per cent below what the median income level was when Obama took office.

This highlights the extent of the damage inflicted upon America’s middle class by Obama’s failed economic policies.

Klobuchar is “Minnesota Nice” …in name only!

Should a sitting senator be praising a 9/11 truther?

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is often billed as the “Minnesota-nice” senator who makes great hot dish. She is soft spoken and is quick to flash an unassuming smile. It’s a great cover for a woman who pals around with communist revolutionaries, George Soros lackeys and union thugs who would like to destroy capitalism and the American way of life.

At a Labor Day weekend event hosted by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and headlined by 9/11 truther, self-described communist revolutionary and disgraced former White House advisor Van Jones, Sen Klobuchar spoke to a crowd of about 50-75 union members, campaign staffers and activists. She began her prepared remarks with a story of a Chicago women’s conference where she and 2,000 other women swooned for Van Jones.

Along with union powerhouse and president of Soros-backed Center for American Progress John Podesta, Jones and Klobuchar were speakers at an event called “Good Jobs, Green Jobs” in 2009. It’s unclear whether she was referring to this event as Klobuchar has appeared several times with Jones.

Van Jones has long been a 9/11 truther and signed a petition/statement blaming the Bush administration for the attacks. Jones is seen in this video (click link) at the 4:38 mark speaking at a rally on September 12, 2001 where speakers openly blame Americans for the 9/11 attacks. Jones claims, “We have something stronger than bombs; we have solidarity. That dream of revolutionary change is stronger than bombs.”

Jones has a rather lengthy history of radical behavior and hateful rhetoric as seen here: In His Own Words.
One of the more notable quotes is as follows:

“I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of the radical ends.” – Van Jones

Klobuchar spoke to a reporter with the Associated Press recently where she spoke of the upcoming election.

“Reach out to independents and to Republicans. Find the common ground,” she said. “Because when the choice is so stark as it is in this election, you will find friends and supporters in places you never expected to find them.”

Senator Kloubuchar has obviously chosen to align with a radical 9/11 truther who seeks revolution to change the American way of life. Is that really who Minnesotans want representing them on Capitol Hill?

Klobuchar’s press secretary did not immediately return phone calls for comment.

Gallows of Effigy

Mr. Phipps Explains Himself, and the Gallows of Effigy.

 

This has nothing to do with racism and nothing to do with the Republican Party.  This was done by one man to bring attention to his personal vendetta.

Naturally enough, as was the case with the Gabby Gifford and the Black Knight shootings, “non-racist” “post-racial” “progressive” Democrats are the first to jump on the “This is exactly what comes to my mind when Republicans talk about “reclaiming our country”, “taking our country back”, or the good old days” bandwagon.

Expose the lies of the “progressive” left!

“progressive” Parasites

Members of the self-imagined, self-appointed institutionalized “progressive” “intellectual elite” have no desire to discuss the reality of what was the most embarrassing DNC since Chicago 1968…can’t blame them.  If they were remotely interested in the truth, they would have already seen the sound wave analysis of the “put God back in the platform” voice vote and know that approving that vote was completely illegitimate.  Saying otherwise is pure, unadulterated propaganda, not the truth.

But, what else is to be expected from “progressives”?

They were booing the reinstatement of God and Jerusalem into the Party platform like good little “progressives”.   They were happy that bho decided against also reinstating the other deleted portions. The two regarding right of return and Hamas.  Or did their “straight shooting” news sources never even mention those?

That is what is best described as typical “progressive” behavior.  Especially from bho…”LOOK AT THIS HAND”…meanwhile, while everyone is looking at the one hand, he is picking pockets with the other.

While everyone was busy talking about the voice count debacle, most people never even noticed that the exhalted “progressive” “leader” managed to throw Israel under the bus while convincing low information voters that he had come to Israel’s rescue.

The only way bho wins in 2012 is with massive “progressive” voter fraud. Voter fraud happens to be the one and only reason Al Franken won in MN in 2008 to become the 60th “progressive” Senator. Without cheating “progressives” stealing that election, America would not now be saddled with the biggest tax hike in American history: obama”care”TAX.

The “progressives” do not want to debate the obama”care”TAX either.  After all, it is so much easier to live in denial.  They are going to be truly shocked and extremely dismayed to discover the taxes they will be forced to pay.  Yes, “progressives” will have to pay.  (And to think they are still insulted by being called useful idiots.)  Taxes that the “most transparent” administration in history” and its “honesty in government” legislative co-horts hid from them and their fellow “progressive” lemmings.  As pelosi said: “we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it”.  If “progressives” successfully steals the 2012 election and the country is stuck with obama”care”TAX, all Conservatives will be able to say to “progressives” is: SUCKERS!!! Don’t say you were not warned.

If “progressives” describe Conservatives not wanting government to hand out taxpayer funded contraceptives to women, especially those who can afford to go to Georgetown Law School, or not wanting government to use taxpayer money to pay for the wholesale slaughter of unborn children…if “progressives describe that as being involved in reproductive issues, then they are finally right about something.

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.

Only “progressives” believe that keeping convicted murderers alive while killing innocent, defenseless unborn babies somehow elevates them to the “moral high ground”.

They will claim that owners of media outlets tend to be Conservative…and that balances out media bias.  They are obviously deaf and blind or so completely indoctrinated that they believe the Current TV program portraying Rupert Murdock’s creation of FOX News as an attack on journalism was unbiased.

It’s only natural that 100% biased “progressives” believe, as does their so-called “president”, that America only became great AFTER “progressives” saddled the country and ensuing generations with hundreds of trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities.  The $16 trillion national debt is only what has been borrowed.  Take a look at the bottom of the national debt clock chart and see how much is currently owed in unfunded liabilities like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and obama”care”TAX.

http://www.usdebtclock.org/

Only a “progressive” who “feels” it is “good” to run up that kind of debt would overlook the harsh reality that that is completely unsustainable.  If they are so eager to live in Greece, let then move there and stay there.  Losing the likes of “progressives” to Europe would be America’s gain.

Sure, they may have been born in this country; they may even have a birth certificate to prove that they are legally citizens.  But the “progressive” idea of centrally planned big government, where rights are determined by the government, where an oligarchy dictates to businesses, industries and the masses, deemed incapable of governing themselves, is NOT an American idea.  It is a European idea brought to America by the Fabian Socialists from England and the Frankfurt School from Germany.  It’s as progressive as returning America to the rule of King George.

The American idea, that men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that  to secure these Rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, where the Freedoms and Liberties of each and every individual are a birthright, originated in the 13 colonies.  It is found in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and is explained in the Federalist Papers.  All were written in America by Americans.

Someone either believe in the American idea, an idea that made America the greatest nation in the history of the planet, or they believe in the “progressive” idea, which over the past 100 years has been slowly eroding the foundation principles and economic security of the world’s one exceptional nation.  The only nation ever founded upon an idea.

If you are a “progressive” you are not an American.  If you are an American, you are not a “progressive.”

Since “progressives” are demonstrably incapable of perceiving what is subtly conveyed, it should be put in terms even a “progressive” can understand: “progressives” are parasites.  Their host will return to health and thrive only after the “progressive” parasites are removed and are no longer draining the host’s life blood.

May bho and every other “progressive” politician infesting America lose every election, may every biased member of the institutionalized “progressive” left news media lose every job, may every grey-haired, pony-tailed Marxist lose every position they hold in academia, and may every Hollywood Marxist leave America and remain outside America….in perpetuity.
