Guest Article - What Liberals Still Do...

The Last Refuge of a Liberal
By Charles Krauthammer - syndicated columnist.

"Liberalism under siege is an ugly sight indeed. Just yesterday it was all hope and change and returning power to the people. But the people have proved so disappointing. Their recalcitrance has, in only 19 months, turned the predicted 40-year liberal ascendancy (James Carville) into a full retreat. Ah, the people, the little people, the small-town people, the "bitter" people, as Barack Obama in an unguarded moment once memorably called them, clinging "to guns or religion or" -- this part is less remembered -- "antipathy toward people who aren't like them."

That's a polite way of saying: clinging to bigotry. And promiscuous charges of bigotry are precisely how our current rulers and their vast media auxiliary react to an obstreperous citizenry that insists on incorrect thinking.

-- Resistance to the vast expansion of government power, intrusiveness and debt, as represented by the Tea Party movement? Why, racist resentment [my emphasis] toward a black president.

-- Disgust and alarm with the federal government's unwillingness to curb illegal immigration, as crystallized in the Arizona law? Nativism. [my emphasis]

-- Opposition to the most radical redefinition of marriage in human history, as expressed in Proposition 8 in California? Homophobia. [my emphasis]

-- Opposition to a 15-story Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero? Islamophobia. [my emphasis]

Now we know why the country has become "ungovernable," last year's excuse for the Democrats' failure of governance: Who can possibly govern a nation of racist, nativist, homophobic Islamophobes?

Note what connects these issues. In every one, liberals have lost the argument in the court of public opinion. Majorities -- often lopsided majorities -- oppose President Obama's social-democratic agenda (e.g., the stimulus, Obamacare), support the Arizona law, oppose gay marriage and reject a mosque near Ground Zero.

What's a liberal to do? Pull out the bigotry charge, the trump that preempts debate and gives no credit to the seriousness and substance of the contrary argument. The most venerable of these trumps is, of course, the race card. When the Tea Party arose, a spontaneous, leaderless and perfectly natural (and traditionally American) reaction to the vast expansion of government intrinsic to the president's proudly proclaimed transformational agenda, the liberal commentariat cast it as a mob of angry white yahoos disguising their antipathy to a black president by cleverly speaking in economic terms.

Then came Arizona and S.B. 1070. It seems impossible for the left to believe that people of good will could hold that: (a) illegal immigration should be illegal, (b) the federal government should not hold border enforcement hostage to comprehensive reform, i.e., amnesty, (c) every country has the right to determine the composition of its immigrant population.

As for Proposition 8, is it so hard to see why people might believe that a single judge overturning the will of 7 million voters is an affront to democracy? And that seeing merit in retaining the structure of the most ancient and fundamental of all social institutions is something other than an alleged hatred of gays -- particularly since the opposite-gender requirement has characterized virtually every society in all the millennia until just a few years ago?

And now the mosque near Ground Zero. The intelligentsia is near unanimous that the only possible grounds for opposition is bigotry toward Muslims. This smug attribution of bigotry to two-thirds of the population hinges on the insistence on a complete lack of connection between Islam and radical Islam, a proposition that dovetails perfectly with the Obama administration's pretense that we are at war with nothing more than "violent extremists" of inscrutable motive and indiscernible belief. Those who reject this as both ridiculous and politically correct (an admitted redundancy) are declared Islamophobes, the ad hominem du jour.

It is a measure of the corruption of liberal thought and the collapse of its self-confidence that, finding itself so widely repudiated, it resorts reflexively to the cheapest race-baiting (in a colorful variety of forms). Indeed, how can one reason with a nation of pitchfork-wielding mobs brimming with "antipathy toward people who aren't like them" -- blacks, Hispanics, gays and Muslims -- a nation that is, as Michelle Obama once put it succinctly, "just downright mean"?

The Democrats are going to get beaten badly in November. Not just because the economy is ailing. And not just because Obama over-read his mandate in governing too far left. But because a comeuppance is due the arrogant elites whose undisguised contempt for the great unwashed prevents them from conceding a modicum of serious thought to those who dare oppose them."

What Are Obama's Motives?

Obama Drops ALL Charges
Remember in a recent blog I told you to always watch both hands of the President? While the Lame Steam media is busy "reporting" on the President riding a bike or playing MORE golf an YET ANOTHER VACATION, he is quietly directing the Attorney General to stop prosecuting the USS Cole bomber.

Where's that media coverage? Why is he letting an alleged TERRORIST get off Scot free? Don't we deserve an explanation? How about the wives and families of the 17 dead sailors?

In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the U.S. Justice Department said that "no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future."

A team of prosecutors in the Nashiri case have been ready go to trial. Several months ago, military officials seemed confident that Nashiri would be arraigned this summer. But no, Obama is letting him go!

It has been 10 years since the Cole Bombing. Apparently Obama believes that Americans have forgotten about this terrorist attack and he can dismiss it. The families of the dead haven't.

Doesn't It Make You Wonder?
First, Americans should receive an explanation why this case is being dismissed. Why is Obama defending an alleged terrorist? Who's side is the President on? We have a right to know.

Second, what about the families and the dead and wounded sailors? Don't they get some vindication? Why is Obama ignoring these people in favor of the alleged bomber? It doesn't add up. It smells of POLITICS!

This President doesn't care about Americans!!

Our New Amnesty Program

Why Isn't This News?
Are you aware that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is systematically dismissing pending deportation cases of ILLEGALS? These are not the ILLEGALS who are here to do the jobs that Americans won't perform. These are ILLEGALS who have previously been convicted of crimes in the United States. The DHS quietly started this program about a month ago. Funny how the Lame Stream media missed this story huh?

Why is OUR government dismissing cases where the individuals are clearly deportable? If you are an ILLEGAL who has been convicted of a crime here in the USA your expulsion should be virtually guaranteed because you are undesirable.

So who can we blame for this injustice? Thank Obama! The Obama administration's strategy is to prioritize the deportation of ILLEGAL ALIENS who present a national security or public safety threat. The government will decide who is harmless and allowed to stay in the country. Oh REALLY? Using what standards? What are the criteria that the DHS is using to ensure that convicted ILLEGALs are no threat?

Does this make any sense to you at all? Why are convicted ILLEGALS being allowed to stay here when the law says they should be deported? In some cases convicted ILLEGALS are allowed to stay as long as the crimes do not involve drunk driving, family violence, or sexual offenses. Basically, convicted ILLEGALS who have been here for at least two years without a felony conviction are let go and free to remain in the USA.

If you are a convicted ILLEGAL ALIEN, you not only don't belong here, but you are an undesirable as well. These people should be deported and not given any privileges. Americans, your government is NOT protecting you! Complain to the White House about this BACK-DOOR Amnesty policy.

Who Not to Vote for

Montana Voters Hear This
Hey Montana voters, you need to hear this and hear this loud and clear. Your state Senator Max Baucus (D, MT) takes credit for the ObamaCare bill. The only problem is, he didn't write it! AND more important, he never read it! So what are you paying him for? In fact, he STILL has NOT read the bill that he voted for and helped pass.

When asked if he had read his own legislation, here is his response: "I don’t think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the health care bill. You know why? It’s statutory language,” Baucus said. “We hire experts.”

So lets get this straight. He never wrote the bill. He never read the bill. He voted in favor of the bill and helped pass the bill. He still has not bothered to read the bill. However, HE wants to take credit for the bill!

CREDIT? Over 62% of the American population did NOT want ObamaCare to pass for a variety of reasons. And Senator Baucus wants CREDIT!

He should have been asked who he paid to write the bill. Why didn't he bother to read the bill that he wants credit for?

The New York Appolo Alliance Group wrote the bill! They are a George Soros funded organization. Does that name sound familiar? It should, he's pulling Obama's strings to make the "Fundamental Changes" in America help become reality.

Why did Congress pay a George Soros organization to write the legislation that they were suppose to write? Something Smells fishy doesn't it?

Not Just Montana Voters
Besides Montana voters, ALL voters in the November election should remember that the people who voted for ObamaCare were part of this deal. They paid a Soros group to write the healthcare bill that no one wanted!

If your representatives (House and Senate) voted to pass ObamaCare, you need to vote them OUT-OF-OFFICE!!

Who's Side is He On?

Look at the Facts
Back in December the White House told us that they would take a new hard line position on creating more jobs for Americans. Remember that? So here we are eight months later and the Promise never materialized. The latest job numbers reinforce this as fact.

What's really ironic is the fact that our OWN President actually has made rulings (Presidential Directives) that have done just the opposite of what he promised for America. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Obama knew that by banning all oil drilling in the Gulf that he would effectively eliminate 23,000 jobs in the Gulf area. He knew it and yet he pursued this direction with gusto. The decision was based on the excuse that the industry's safety equipment wasn't trustworthy. However, it does help his friend George Soros who owns Petrobus in Brazil. Recall, this is the new location for the oil rigs leaving the Gulf of Mexico. They are going Brazil to drill for Petrobus and they won't be back anytime soon. Obama knew this! He also loaned Petrobus a couple of BILLION dollars. Why?

This moratorium seeks no method to resolve the problems it has created. It IGNORES the damage it does to the economy. It offers no fixes or solutions. WHY? This IS THE PLAN FOR CHANGE IN AMERICA! That's why! If you're already having trouble creating jobs to get the economy going, why would you eliminate 23,000 more jobs and make it harder for Americans? It doesn't make logical/rational sense, unless it IS the plan. Obama never described how he was going to change America - just that he would. Bring down the economy and replace it with what? Socialism on a grand scale? Perhaps this was the plan all along. What are the arguments against it? Why would the government be so stupid?

Now we see the net effect of his decision. It is crippling the region's economy. It helps his buddy Soros. Remember, this decision was DELIBERATE! Recall Cloward and Piven. (Google them. They were the radicals from the 60's who devised a method to bring-down America). Obama is not only an advocate of this plan, he taught it to his college students, an now he's following it every chance he gets.

Scary Huh?
Find this too hard to believe? Look Again! This administration has done more power grabs in less than two years than any other administration in since FDR! But it can't happen in America! Yes it can - If you LET IT. We are the only checks-and-balances that are left. If we do nothing, our freedoms and our liberties will be lost forever. Act now, don't let America collapse under these un-American activities.
