Finally the truth emerges

Conservatives have known it for a long time despite the denial coming from much of the mainstream media. Some “news” announcers are (or were) completely in the tank for Barack Obama. Chris Matthews is one such person. Some will remember him for talking of the tingle running up his leg after he heard Mr. Obama speak. After complaints of partisanship, Mr. Matthews was removed from covering the debates. That didn’t stop him from using his position as a newsman to sway political opinion in favor of Mr. Obama.

This video is about 3 minutes long and well worth watching. It was a documentary two Europeans were doing on education and the American Election. It starts off with them talking for a few seconds, but then quickly cuts to english.

Our Land of Moochers

Michelle Malkin did a great piece on Peggy the Moocher yesterday. In it, Michelle gives voice to a sentiment I have been expressing privately for quite some time.

We are a Land of Peggy the Moochers now, in large part thanks to Republican capitulationists.

It’s sad but true. Many of today’s youth do not want a hand up, they want a handout. I look at my own nephew, whom I love dearly and helped to raise, so I see him more as a son, and he is blinded by this mentality. He would rather sit around smoking dope than go to work and support his girlfriend and child. Now, he has worked, but there truly is no drive to succeed. Instead, he believes he should be able to work his 30 hours a week at a minimum wage job and then have the government provide his healthcare, housing, and other necessities. Rather than strive for something better, he labors for mediocrity and then wants everyone else who has bettered him- or herself to make up the difference between where he is and they are economically. If you ask him if he’s a socialist, he’ll look at you blankly then confess he doesn’t follow politics. At the same time, however, he–like so many his age–buys into the leftwing bias of the liberal media, attacks GW, and everyone that has more than him.

I have to look at him through the goggles of love rather than ideology, because without those goggles, he is everything I detest about many of today’s youth.  Everything is “too hard,” even before he attempts it. He’ll never get anywhere in life, so why bother? Republicans and conservatives are nothing but cloaked racists. Everyone should share everything, so mediocrity can abound and the lazy don’t have to work as hard.

Now, where I part with Michelle is on “republican capitulationists.” I agree that is a large factor, but I believe the greater factor is the educational system and the liberal idealogues training tomorrow’s teachers. These teachers of today and tomorrow are the people that silently disempower students through actions like social passing, grading on curves, and dumbing down class so the drooling moron in the back can feel better about himself when he gets a C in class.

The only ways I can see to remedy this situation is for:

  • Parents to take more active roles in their children’s lives, training them what is right and wrong, good and bad, admirable and destestable
  • More conservatives to go into education and quietly subvert the intellectual saboteurs that have control of our youths’ minds for 6-8 hours a day

Until men like William Ayers and (Chief) Ward Churchill meet their nemeses, the situation is only going to grow worse. Remember, Peggy the Moocher is breeding age. She, and all the moochers like her, are just going to breed more moochers.

Putin vs Obama…Coming to a Theatre Near You Soon!

According to Reuters, Dmitry Medvedev, the president of Russia who is sometimes termed Putin’s-Puppet, may be changing the Russian Constitution soon in order to allow Putin to take back the reins of that country. That’s right, folks, the ex-head of the KGB may reassume power in 2009, just in time to stand up to Barack H. Obama. We must wonder if this is what Biden had in mind when he promised American’s there would be a serious international crisis aimed at America to test Obama.

According to the article: Putin may return to Kremlin in ‘09

Under the plan, Medvedev could implement changes to the constitution and unpopular social reforms “so that Putin could return to the Kremlin for a longer period,” the newspaper said.

To add some perspective to this unfolding situation, let us look at a snippet from Bloomberg.com (full article: Medvedev Confronts U.S. on Missiles After Obama Win

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) — Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev said he would deploy new missiles in Europe, confronting the U.S. hours after Barack Obama won the American presidential election.

Medvedev said he would place a short-range Iskander missile system in Russia’s exclave of Kaliningrad, wedged between Poland and Lithuania, to “neutralize” a planned U.S. missile-defense system “if necessary,” Medvedev said. A radio-jamming installation in Kaliningrad will also be aimed at elements of the U.S. system in Poland and the Czech Republic, he said.

So, already, the stage is being set to “test the mettle of this guy” as Joe Biden so eloquently stated.  Let us not forget that Biden also warned us that most Americans would be unhappy with Obama’s reaction and think he did the wrong thing. Now, that’s vague, but there are only two options if this is the case. Either Obama will stand up to the Russian dictator. No one would think this was the wrong thing to do unless he purposely starts a war with them. The only other alternative that could be viewed as “wrong” would be if he were to back down and show cowardice in the face of adversity.  

In all likelihood, President Obama will opt for the latter. He has already expressed his sentiments on the U.S. Military and American might. He will likely back down and remove the missle defense shield from Poland, thereby leaving a gap through which the Russians will be able to forcibly reuinite the Soviet Union and reignite the tensions that kept a couple of generations in fear. Fortunately for the Russians, the American spirit is not what it used to be. Liberal professors, media, and authors have acted as unregistered agents of a hostile government and done their part to subvert this nation and convert the minds of America’s youth into one that will openly embrace a new global socialist order.

Where Did We Go Wrong?

It’s not unexpected, but remarkable all the same. Many in the GOP camp are looking for a scapegoat and Sarah Palin appears to have hooves. I was always taught to put blame where it truly lies. So here is the truth about why McCain lost.

McCain ran a disjointed campaign. I believe he had an antiquated, but romantic notion of a Rocky Balboa style come back; or he was trying to pace himself like a distance runner. In either event, McCain did not look like he was there to win for the first couple of months. It wasn’t until the last few days of the campaign that he actually started “campaigning.” By then, the election was over.

One of the faults also lies with the McCain person who said, “If we talk about the economy, we’ll lose.” That was probably one of the biggest political gaffs in the last 20 years. It’s akin to Achilles saying, “If you attack my heel, I’ll die” or that famous biblical giant, Samson saying, “If you cut my hair, I’ll be powerless.” Now, to be certain, I do not believe discussing the economy was a certain loss for McCain. It could have actually spelled victory, but more on that in a moment. What this comment did was send a message to the mainstream media (MSM) and voters that McCain could not win if they discussed the economy. Therefore, the MSM–already in the tank for Obama–did everything they could to keep voters’ minds on the economy. As some news commentators aptly said, this was the first time in history the election/campaign news did not dominate the media. Instead, the top news every day was the economy (the topic designed to cut McCain’s hair and stab his heel). It is no surprise exit polls showed most people’s #1 concern at the polls was the economy.

Talking about the economy could have been a certain win for McCain if he approached it as a conservative instead of a democrat. Had he not gone to Washington for the bailout and then opposed it when it came up, he could have used his nay vote and Obama’s yea vote as indicative of Obama’s “socialism” that came up in the last few days. Moreover, considering the majority of Americans opposed the bailout, he would have garnered their support. He also should have campaigned on the idea of–not greater regulation–but of guaranteeing the public those who abused the system, whether a CEO or senator, would be punished. Instead, McCain voted like Obama and talked like Obama. In the eyes of John and Jane Q. Public, there was no difference between the two on the issue. If there was no difference and McCain’s people said he would lose talking about the economy, it stands to reason he must be the wrong man for the job.

McCain could have and should have campaigned like a conservative. Those who wrote his speaches and prepped him for the debates did a poor job in my estimation. While I thought he did well in all three debates, he wasn’t anything other than mediocre until the last one. Even in that debate, however, he failed to capitalize on the ads he ran. While McCain ran ads on the questionable associations–and ergot judgement–of Obama, he did not reiterate those questions. He brought them up in a weak-kneed manner and allowed them to fall like paper tigers in a spring breeze, instead of hammering them home. Rather than press the issues, he accepted Obama’s ridiculous explanations as fact, thereby sending a psychological message to viewers that these issues truly did not matter. How could he then expect anyone to take his ads seriously?

While some are jumping on the bash-Palin bandwagon, the truth is McCain would have seen a defeat like Mondale in 1984 if Palin were not on the ticket. Sarah Palin was, for all intents and purposes, the power behind the ticket. It was no foible on the part of the media that they spent more time attacking her than John McCain. They realized she was the wind in the sail.

So, let us put blame for this failure where it belongs. This loss should be chalked up to liberal bias in the media, McCain’s unwillingness to capitalize on the gaffs of his opponents, poor handling by the McCain staff, and McCain’s inability to distinguish himself from his opponent. I like John McCain. I think he would have made a fine president, even if he isn’t very conservative. Ultimately, though, I believe as the head of the ticket, all blame rests at his feet.

Novemebr 5th! Time to start working on the next election

It’s November 5th and the euphoria of another election cycle has faded. As a point of fact, it faded hours ago when the media pundits began calling the election an Obama landslide. Yes, by the time I went to bed last night, the euphoria had faded, giving way to fear and dread.

While I certainly hope I am wrong about president-elect Barack H. Obama, the rational side of my mind keeps reminding me the facts are there and easily weighed. I believe the next four years, at minimum two, will be a tough and bumpy ride for those of us who call ourselves “Conservatives.” With a large democratic majority in Congress and the willingness of many republicans to acquiesce to the whims of liberals, I fear we will see government expansion that hasn’t been seen since the days of FDR.

Currently, the record holder for great government expansion goes to George W. Bush. He long ago laid aside his conservative principles. I believe he did this, in part, as an attempt to reach across the aisle and end partisan bickering and the ire of the mainstream media (MSM) toward him. As anyone over the age of sixteen can tell, it didn’t work. The MSM was more than happy to continue bashing him. The democrats rebuked him for every act. The kool-aid drinkers at sites like the Daily Kos pounced upon every foible and gaff. In the end, GW isolated himself and the GOP from the conservative base.

With the way the Obamanites and leftwing kooks do things, I do not believe we have a day to waste pining over what might have been. As such, I have decided to spend some time today laboring on uniting the conservative base once again. I realize those are big words for a single person with a new blog, but this–I believe–is the way to begin. I believe everything must be retooled from the ground up.
