Gillespie-Warner: The Clash of the Establishments

November 4th is almost upon us, and unlike some election cycles many of the races this year are not yet won; the race here in Virginia between incumbent Democrat Mark Warner and challenger Ed Gillespie is one of them. For the benefit of those not in Virginia, Warner has been ads that amount to pointing out that Ed Gillespie was one of Washington’s highest paid lobbyists, and accusing him of wanting people to put their Social Security benefits at risk. Gillespie has refrained from responding to those ads, choosing instead to point out that Warner has voted with President Obama 97 percent of the time, and that he supports Obamacare. More recently Gillespie ads have attacked Warner for talking to a Virginia lawmaker about a job for his daughter, a scandal that may be a game changer.   (continue reading)

Rant about race more telling than author thought

When Rebecca Carroll penned her piece for The New Republic entitled "I'm a Black Journalist. I'm Quitting Because I'm Tired of Newsroom Racism", she probably felt like she was exposing the inherent racism in American media. To be honest, she did to an extent. For many conservatives and libertarians, Carroll's words were about as shocking as a headline reading "The Sky is Blue".

However, Carroll also revealed a flip side to the issue of race discussion that she's probably unaware of.    (continue reading)

Now, homelessness is at an all-time high, marijuana is smoked in once family-friendly parks, gun control is rampant and the state’s energy industry is under constant assault. Unfortunately, the State of Colorado is now a perfect example of President Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America.”

#10. I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.

# 9. I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn't.

# 8. I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

# 7. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

# 6. I vote Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

# 5. I vote Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

# 4. I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

# 3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

# 2. I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

...And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it's better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America. We don't care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

Child Poverty Is An Election Issue - Child Sex Not So Much...........From Daniel Thomas

There's nothing more dispiriting to the human soul than watching politicians descend from their ivory towers once every few years to put their faux concern for people on public display in hope of securing a vote or two at election time.

Career politicians and bureaucrats who wouldn't be seen dead with a supermarket shelf stacker or an oil splattered mechanic, suddenly start pretending they have empathy for ordinary people.

Multi-millionaire 'progressives' start talking about ending income inequality and assisting social mobility at five thousand pounds per plate fund raising dinners.

With the aid of the government-media complex the political class create images of poverty, hunger and despair to give themselves a reason to put forward solutions they know they won't implement. Where there is actual poverty, hunger and despair they will offer nothing but promises, for the simple reason that a prosperous, upwardly mobile working class robs them of their reason to interfere.

Politicians need poverty, they love talking about poverty, they wallow in it, its their element. They would have little reason to exist in their present form if the majority of the people were prosperous and financially independent of government.

The truth is that outside of election times the political class are self serving, agenda driven and couldn't care less about the lives of their constituents. They do the absolute minimum that is required, both actually and rhetorically, to keep them on board and secure their votes.

One of the most potent issues for raising the emotional temperature is child poverty, no human being with an iota of decency wants to see a child suffer hunger and despair.

Not all of the political class, nor their armies of bureaucrats are decent human beings despite the fact that they jump on the child poverty bandwagon at election times for vote gathering purposes.

When one compares the election time rhetoric with the behavior of Great Britain's political class, the whole shameful edifice of child welfare comes crashing down under the weight of their deceit and lies.

Using a flaw in the electoral system, the leader of the ridiculous Liberal Democrat party, Nick Clegg, is also Great Britain's Deputy Prime Minister. His concern for the welfare of children resulted in the formation of the Child Poverty and Social Mobility Commission, this put into law the mandatory monitoring of child poverty and set a target for the elimination of child poverty by the year 2020.
(Story here)

He further demonstrated his concern for child welfare by mandating that every child must have a free school meal regardless of means. Its all lies of course and designed to enhance his public image and his burnish child care credentials.

While Clegg was setting targets and handing out school dinners he was covering up the fact that one if the icons of the Liberal movement was a rampant paedophile who abused children on an industrial scale. When he was finally forced to admit knowledge of Cyril Smiths depraved crimes he refused to instigate an inquiry.

He also covered up the fact that he knew one of his MP's, Mike Hancock, was having an inappropriate relationship with young special needs constituent who went to him for help.
(Lib Dem paedophile stories herehere and here)

The Labour Party try to make child poverty their exclusive territory, their usurping of the moral high ground is nauseating when their unseen attitude to children is made public.

While they champion increasing the minimum wage, increasing child welfare benefits and raising children out of poverty altogether by 2020, they also promote legalising sex between adults and children under the radar.

The infamous trio of Harriet Harman, Jack Dromey and Patricia Hewitt had common cause with the Paedophile Information Exchange to legalise sex between adults and children on the back of legislation to legalise homosexuality.

While they pull on the emotional heart strings regarding the existence of child poverty and appearing to be dedicated to its eradication, Labour administrations were ignoring the grooming, rape and vile sexual abuse of under age white girls by Muslim paedophile gangs in Rotherham, Rochdale and a host of other cities in England.

In Rotherham, the head of children's services in the Labour administration removed two children from their loving foster parents because their cultural needs may not be met but ignored the rape and sexual abuse of some fourteen hundred (1,400) under age white girls at the same time.

In these blighted towns, Labour administrations ensured children were entitled to a free school dinner but not entitled to protection from rape.

David Cameron's Conservative Party also puts the welfare of children high on their agenda at election times but cover up the hideous activities of the child abusers in their midst at the same time.

Cameron held out as long as he could not to hold an inquiry into historic child sex abuse in Westminster including iconic senior members of his own party. He held out long enough for files relating to the case to go missing.
(Westminster Paedophile scandal here)

With a complete disregard for the child victims, past and present and for justice, Cameron claimed that an inquiry may lead to a witch hunt against gays in general. Finally having been dragged kicking and screaming into holding an inquiry, his choice to lead it Baroness Butler-Sloss, had to stand down because her impartiality could not be guaranteed.

During election times, politicians and their bureaucrats like nothing more than talking about their compassion for children, child poverty and their plans to deal with it, they are not so keen to talk about the innumerable paedophile scandals that have gone on for decades with their full knowledge and sometimes their facilitation.

Paedophilia is rife in Great Britain and it is beyond credulity to believe that the political class are serious about child welfare when at the same time they do little to prevent child sex abuse then cover it up when it is made public.

The "Malaise" Has Returned

By Alan Caruba

The joke is that Jimmy Carter is happy that Barack Obama has replaced him as the worst President of the modern era.  It is a supreme irony that Obama’s campaign theme was “Hope and Change” when Americans have lost a great deal of hope about their personal futures and the only change they want is to see Obama gone from office.

Elected by a narrow margin in 1976, Carter managed in his one term to see his approval ratings fall to twenty-five percent by June 1979. The lesson Americans have to learn over and over again is that liberal policies and programs don’t work.

In six years, the kind of dependence on the government to take care of people from cradle to grave has left the nation with 92 million unemployed or who have stopped looking for a job, entitled 45 million to food stamps, and there is still talk of a “minimum wage” in the interest of “fairness” that simply kills jobs, especially those that used to be filled by young people just entering the workplace. The worst part of Obama’s presidency is the lies he tells in the belief, apparently, that most Americans are so stupid they won’t see through them.

On July 15, 1979, in an effort to encourage a greater sense of confidence, Jimmy Carter delivered a speech that became known as the “malaise” speech, but which did not include that word. What it did, however, is double down on all the bad policies Carter had pursued and blamed Americans for not accepting them. By then the economy was in decline, gasoline prices and interest rates had climbed to record levels, and the voters were understandably pessimistic. Iranians had taken U.S. diplomats hostage and they would not be released until Ronald Reagan took the oath of office.

Carter’s speech began by asking “Why have we not been able to get together as a nation to resolve our serious energy problem?”  Quite literally there was no need then or now for an energy problem because, as recently noted by the Energy Information Administration, the United States has enough coal to last more than 200 years! With the development of hydraulic fracturing, fracking, we now have access to more oil than exists in Saudi Arabia.

Obama literally came into office saying he intended to wage a war on coal and he has; using the Environmental Protection Agency to institute regulations that have led to the closing a mines and the shutdown of coal-fired plants that used to produce 50% of the nation’s electricity; now down to 40%. He resisted allowing the drilling for oil in the huge reserves on our east and west coasts. He has refused to permit the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. These policies have led to the loss of thousands of jobs during the time that followed the 2008 financial crisis.

In his speech, Carter said, “The erosion of our confidence in the future is threatening to destroy the social and the political fabric of America.” We would do well to remember that we have been through periods like this before and corrected course.

In 1980 Ronald Reagan would be elected to replace Carter and America prospered through his two terms, returning to being a major superpower, economically and militarily. That’s what conservatism produces.

Carter, however, blamed Americans for the problems of his times. “Two-thirds of our people do not even vote. The productivity of American workers is actually dropping, and the willingness of Americans to save for the future has fallen below that of all other people in the Western world.”
One of Obama’s earliest acts was to visit foreign nations and blame America for many of the world’s problems. Militarily he pulled our troops out of Iraq and he intends to do the same in Afghanistan. He has cut the military budget to the bone and has now defined its mission as one to address “climate change”, not the enemies of our nation.

Obama spent his entire first term blaming George W. Bush for every problem that he did nothing to correct. Indeed, Obama has never seen himself as the real problem, finding anyone else to blame.

Those Americans watching Carter deliver his speech must surely have cringed as he announced that he intended to set import quotas on foreign energy resources. He said he wanted Congress to impose a “windfall profits” tax on the very energy firms that he wanted to get us out of the doldrums and dependency that was causing the problem. He wanted the utility companies to “cut their massive use of oil by fifty percent within a decade.” He wanted them to switch to coal and now we live in a nation whose President doesn’t want our utilities to use coal. Why? Despite massive evidence to the contrary, he has advocated “renewable” energy, wind and solar, neither of which can ever meet the nation’s needs.

“In closing, let me say this: I will do my best, but I will not do it alone. Let your voice be heard,” said Carter.
In the 1980 election the voter’s voice was heard. Carter was gone and Reagan was our President. With him came his infectious patriotism and optimism. By late 1983 his economic program had ended the recession he inherited from Carter. A similar program would have put an end to what is now routinely called Obama's Great Recession.

We are at a point not dissimilar from the days of Jimmy Carter and with an even greater sense of dissatisfaction and distrust of Barack Obama.

I reach back in our recent history to remind you that on November 4th in our midterm elections and in the 2016 presidential election we can repeat history by ridding the nation of those members of Congress that voted for ObamaCare and have supported President Obama. We must wait to see who the GOP will offer as a presidential candidate, but we have time for that.

We have time to “hope” for a better future and we have the means to make the “change” to achieve it.

Let’s end the marriage of convenience between Church and State

Lost among all of the Ebola related headlines are many other issues which should be addressed. One in particular is the current controversy in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho over two Christian pastors who have been threatened with fines and jail time for refusing to perform same-sex marriages. Of course, this attack on religious liberty is something many of us have seen coming for quite some time and I assure you more will soon follow. The fault here lies not with proponents of same-sex marriage, but with churches who have allowed themselves to become government agencies with respect to marriage.
