Wherefore the Vichy Republican Press?

I’ve always loved the two old-school words whence and wherefore. Whence doesn’t mean “when” (it means “from where”) and wherefore doesn’t mean “where” (it means “why). But I digress…..

We’ve all noticed in this campaign that many big players in the conservative press seem to have gone to great effort to do everything possible to undermine conservative goals – not exactly a surprise, and not exactly the first time (ahem do the 72,000 choruses of “John McCain, the electable candidate!” ring a bell?). During the primaries they undermined Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, and Herman Cain, and promoted the moderate Mitt Romney. They got their wish. However, once Romney got the nomination, he became suddenly a much more aggressive candidate and effective communicator for conservative principles than anybody thought he would be. I know, I’m still stunned.

Not My President, part 7 of 50: Libyan Ambassador murdered, Neville Chamberlain heads to Vegas

Really, barack?

Does America really, truly have a White House occupier who can’t even get himself worked up over a day that involved 2 American embassies breached, flags taken down, desecrated and replaced with a black Islamic flag, and culminating in the murder of our Ambassador to Libya by a mob? He’s delivered a couple of tepid statements decrying “senseless violence” and now is proceeding to Las Vegas for previously scheduled campaign events. What kind of unserious, golf-playing parlor dilettante does that?

Let’s put it this way. Not my president.

Politico trying to make lemonade out of Empty Chair lemon

Too funny, and of course not a bit surprising:

Politico is well known as the Washington Post’s overt political arm where they can take all the political potshots at the right that are too blatant even for WaPo’s tainted Left election machine. Today they tried explain the runaway Empty Chair phenomenon, which I predict will become as much a part of the 2012 election lexicon as “you didn’t build that”.

Lead paragraph:

The right rallied on Labor Day to celebrate “National Empty Chair Day,” a show of solidarity with Clint Eastwood after his rambling address to an invisible President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention last week.

So according to these clowns Tim Mak and Juana Summers, the Online Right is only doing this to give some cover for poor old doddering Clint Eastwood. Wouldn’t have anything to do with:

Call the Waaaambulance! Rising sea levels not funny!

This just in! The mainstream and unbiased scholars at MSNBC/MSLSD are not amused. Republicans don’t believe in the Global Warming Hoax, and not only that, they seem to want to make fun of “Globers”.

The commies at MSLSD are fine with constantly lying about conservatives throwing granny over the cliff, about the violent and racist Tea Party people. They can mock conservatives’ dismay over the skyrocketing debt, and over the massive corruption and denial of freedoms under ObamaCare™, ObamaIRSDenyConservatives501c4Status™, ObamaEPAYouCantBuildThat™, ObamaBuyUnionsACouplaCarCompanies™, and ObamaCronyFakeGreenCompanies™.

The Kept Media, hurricanes, and the wine in front of me

I’m just trying to keep straight what Pravda expects from presidents, presidential candidates, major party decision-makers, and major party chairmen when a hurricane hits, especially during a Republican convention. Should they cancel or delay conventions? Should they visit the disaster zone immediately to show their great concern? Should they wait awhile so as to not allow their presence (and attendant security measures) to interfere with rescue and recovery operations?

Judging by past behavior of the Kept Media, apparently …. yes! Or…….. no!

Actually it makes perfect sense if you let this scene from Princess Bride be your guide:

Conservatives know how to vote multiple times too

We know that Democrats know how to vote multiple times. Lordy Lordy, do we ever know it:

  • dead Democrats vote for decades after they’re dead
  • they register as Disney characters, movie characters, and Dallas Cowboys players
  • they fill in absentee ballots that go to dogs, dead people, empty lots, drop boxes, and to fictional people
  • they register and vote in multiple districts, cities, and states
  • they drive around in vans on election day, traveling from polling place to polling place where they “occupy” names of people who are dead or fictional
  • they fill out entire boxes of ballots that are fed into the voting machines after the polling places are closed and they have some sense of how many votes are needed
  • they register and vote on same-day voting in more than one district
  • they proxy-vote for senior citizens in nursing homes
  • I’m pretty sure there are another dozen methods that good, honest conservatives never even thought about

The Republican Party is often called the Stupid Party, and that is true. However, this is another area in which party leadership differs greatly from party constituency. For you see, conservatives are not stupid. Far from it, in fact. In the past, we’ve been naive in assuming Democrats loved the country like we did, respected law, fair play, and decency like we did, and wanted freedom like we did. The last few years have disabused us of such notions.

Conservatives are smart. We may have started late in engaging this dirty game of politics. We may not be well organized. But look how fast the Tea Party arose and in the span of 15 months demolished the Democrat stranglehold on Congress in the biggest electoral turnaround in American history. We have a frighteningly steep learning curve.

Now we’ve learned how to vote multiple times.

Not My President, part 6 of 50: murdering live-born babies

It occurs to me that I had better hurry up with this series; this guy is not going to be the official “president” much longer, and at that point, people aren’t going to be interested in reading reasons 11-50 of why some loser non-president should not be our president.

A quick recap of the NMP rules (the series can be found at PetesWorld, a compendium of contributions by EPU and the anonymous Pete) ): The Bush-haters declared George W Bush NMP purely over political and ideological hatred (i.e., the crime of being a Republican), and over wet fantasies related to the fact that Gore was unable to successfully steal the 2000 election from him.

I hold the office of President to be infinitely more precious than that. I would only declare a person sitting in the office “not my president” only over him being manifestly unworthy of the office; specifically, over deliberate and systematic abuse of power, over corruption, over inflicting deliberate harm on sectors of the country, over hatred of the principles of justice and freedoms upon which this Republic was built, and over moral fiber so craven, so bereft of goodness as to be vile. Such a one is not only not my president, his name does not even merit capitalization.

Reason #6 relates to that matter of moral fiber. barack obama, in three consecutive sessions as a state senator in Illinois, ardently opposed a bill to protect the lives of live-born babies who survived abortion attempts. In the third session, in 2003, as chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, he voted in favor of “neutrality clause” language that made the bill virtually identical to the federal bill, then led committee Democrats in voting down the bill in a 6-4 vote. This was a version of the bill that even NARAL dared not oppose. Yet barack did, actively and forcefully.

Joe Biden: dumber than a bag of hammers

Now that Paul Ryan is the VP pick (a thousand reasons why that is a good pick) the Leftist Media, along with the official Obama campaign, the unions, Hollywood, and the PACs will be going after him like crazy. While I am reasonably sure he doesn’t have a pregnant 17-year old daughter, I’m sure the Left will find something, true, misconstrued, or just completely fabricated, that will warrant going to full war mode against him in order to hurt conservative America’s electoral chances.

So be it. If you are whining about how unfair and uphill this battle is, this business of rescuing America’s future from the evil regime that is in place, then I respectfully ask you to shut up, buck up, and grow a pair, or failing that, just get out of the way. The rest of us are going to do the heavy lifting, and have fun doing it.

Cruz 56-44, TP to GOP Establishment: It’s on like Donkey Kong

Shut up and get in line.

Remember in early-mid 2008 as the Republican Party rallied behind the biggest backstabber in the modern party era, and snarled at conservatives who backed conservative Fred Thompson and moderate but tough Rudy Giuliani, Shut up and get in line! He’s the only candidate the media won’t go hard after. Conservatives grumbled knowingly but did so. In a move surprising nobody but the GOP, the media gleefully turned on McCain as soon as he had the nomination sewn up. McCain endorsed the Democrat nominee, and would have nobody say a word against him. The party rode McCain’s coattails down to 60-40 minorities in both houses.

As the Democrats laid waste to our Republic, the people rose up against it, led by conservative citizens. Thus the Tea Party movement was born, and in the uprising demolished the Democrats in both House and Senate, decisively taking the House and paring the Senate minority to 47-53. The Beltway Republicans were delivered an emphatic mandate, namely “stop the spending and regulation that the Democrats are perpetrating!”

What did the Republicans do under Boehner and McConnell? Nothing discernable. Boehner suddenly found himself in a position to dictate terms to Obama. But every showdown followed a pattern. Democrats make demands. Republicans draw a line and say, “No further!” Democrats then threaten servicemen, blame Republicans for starving granny, or just call them mean names. Republicans give in, signing on to massive spending, massive debt limit increases, massive cuts in defense, accepting crumbs in return. As Americans screamed at them in rage, the Republicans said, Shut up and get in line! It was the best deal we could get.

OK, your turn now, GOP.
