Guest Article - New Strategy

Obama Underappreciation Syndrome

By Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist.

"In an increasingly desperate attempt to develop a narrative for the coming Democratic collapse, the Democrats have indulged themselves in what for half a century they've habitually attributed to the American right -- the paranoid style in American politics. The talk is of dark conspiracies -- secret money, foreign influence, big corporations, with Karl Rove and, yes, Ed Gillespie lurking ominously behind the scenes. The only thing missing is the Halliburton-Cheney angle.

But after trotting out some of these charges with a noticeable lack of success, President Obama has come up with something new, something less common, something more befitting his stature and intellect. He's now offering a scientific, indeed neurological, explanation for his current political troubles. The electorate apparently is deranged by its anxieties and fears to the point where it can't think straight. Part of the reason "facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time," he explained to a Massachusetts audience, "is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country is scared."

Opening a whole new branch of cognitive science -- liberal psychology -- Obama has discovered a new principle: The fearful brain is hard-wired to act befuddled, i.e., vote Republican.

But of course. Here Obama has spent two years bestowing upon the peasantry the "New Foundation" of a more regulated, socially engineered and therefore more humane society, and they repay him with recalcitrance and outright opposition. Here he gave them Obamacare, the stimulus, financial regulation and a shot at cap-and-trade -- and the electorate remains not just unmoved but ungrateful.

Faced with this truly puzzling conundrum, Dr. Obama diagnoses a heretofore undiscovered psychological derangement: anxiety-induced Obama Underappreciation Syndrome, wherein an entire population is so addled by its economic anxieties as to be neurologically incapable of appreciating the "facts and science" undergirding Obamacare and the other blessings their president has bestowed upon them from on high.

I have a better explanation. Better because it adheres to the ultimate scientific principle, Occam's Razor, by which the preferred explanation for any phenomenon is the one with the most economy and simplicity. And there is nothing simpler than the Gallup findings on the ideological inclinations of the American people. Conservative: 42 percent. Moderate: 35 percent. Liberal: 20 percent. No fanciful new syndromes or other elaborate fictions are required to understand that if you try to impose a liberal agenda on such a demonstrably center-right country -- a country that is 80 percent non-liberal -- you get a massive backlash.

Moreover, apart from ideology is empirical reality. Even as we speak, the social-democratic model Obama is openly and boldly trying to move America toward is unraveling in Europe. It's not just the real prospect of financial collapse in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, with even the relatively more stable major countries in severe distress. It is the visible moral collapse of a system that, after two generations of increasing cradle-to-grave infantilization, turns millions of citizens into the streets of France in furious and often violent protest over what? Over raising the retirement age from 60 to 62!

Having seen this display of what can only be called decadence, Obama's perfectly wired electorate says no, not us, not here. The peasants have seen the future -- Greece and France -- and concluded that it does not work. Hence their opposition to Obama's proudly transformational New Foundation agenda. Their logic is impeccable: Only the most blinkered intellectual could be attempting to introduce social democracy to America precisely when the world's foremost exemplar of that model -- Europe -- is in chaotic meltdown.

And it isn't as if this political message is new. It had already been sent in the last year with clarion clarity in the elections in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts where independents -- the swing voters without ideological attachment one way or the other -- split 2-to-1, 2-to-1 and 3-to-1, respectively, against the Democrats.

The story of the last two years is as simple as it is dramatic. It is the epic story of an administration with a highly ideological agenda encountering a rising resistance from the American people over the major question in dispute: the size and reach and power of government and, even more fundamentally, the nature of the American social contract.

An adjudication of the question will be rendered on Nov. 2. For the day, the American peasantry will be presiding."

Know Before You Poll

Don't Rely on Recommendations
Every time we have elections, we have political endorsements coming from a variety of sources, including the National Rifle Association (NRA) and all major trade unions. Whether their intentions are meant to be good, remains to be seen.

For example, the NRA sends-out mailings and emails to their members telling them how to vote on the mid-term elections. In North Carolina, District 11, Congressman Heath Shuler (D) is running for re-election against newcomer Jeff Miller (R, NC). The NRA wants Shuler re-elected.

THAT'S BAD FOR AMERICA! Shuler votes as a so-called "Blue-Dog" Democrat. He has voted to protect gun rights in a gun friendly state. So, the NRA supports Shuler JUST for this reason alone. They give no consideration to the new comer because he has no voting record.

Shame on the NRA. They didn't do their homework! What voters need to also know is that Shuler is Nancy Pelosi's pet "pit bull." He votes anyway Nancy Pelosi tells him how to vote because he's on her leash. He votes "against" his party only after the vote is guaranteed to pass without his vote. Consequently, he appears to be on the side of his constituents. This is a blatant lie. He is a Progressive Democrat and supports the Obama policies. He voted to increase taxes on energy. Shuler would have voted for the Stimulus and Bailouts if his vote was needed. Don't be fooled by deceptive recommendations. He is misleading his voters by pretending to be on their side while supporting DEMs behind closed doors. THAT'S DISHONEST!

In another example of BAD endorsements, trade unions typically "encourage" their memberships to always vote straight Democratic. Why? Because the DEMs give favors to unions as one of their favorite special interest groups. A clear example of this is in ObamaCare where unions are given special dispensation for their "Cadillac" health plans without paying penalties - like the rest of us do. Unions in-turn, take membership fees and donate large "chunks" of membership fees and donate them to the Democratic Party during elections.

It's an incestuous relationship and is corrupt. It has to stop.

Know Before You Vote
It is YOUR responsibility to learn about your candidates before you pull the lever. Don't just take the recommendations given by the political hacks who have a vested interest. Think for yourself. Don't just vote for a candidate because you were told to vote for someone.

Money Talks (and Corrupts)

George Soros in Action
Recently George Soros (billionaire) donated $1.6 million dollars to Media Matters to attack Fox News and all who work there. As indicated in previous blog topics, Mr Soros is a Left-wing Progressive who is trying to bring America down and create a "New World Order" in the financial community. He openly donates millions of dollars to radical left-wing organizations. (See the three previous blogs thaqt list all the organizations that Soros influences with his money).

Well a week ago, Soros donated $1.8 million dollars to National Public Radio (NPR). This is an organization that received taxpayer dollars to help keep them afloat. Unfortunately, now that they have accepted "a donation" from George Soros, it appears that they have also committed to helping promote HIS anti-American agenda.

Soros HATES Fox News and ironically today, NPR today smeared and fired Juan Williams (NPR Journalist) who appears regularly on Fox News. Coincidence? Hardly! Circumstantial? Yes. Too much to be a coincidence. Look at what Soros is REALLY doing. He is trying to control all of the media. He (Media Matters and NPR) want to intimidate ANY debate which opposes the Progressive agenda.

Don't be fooled. We are sending public money to fund NPR and they are using YOUR dollars to promote Their agenda. Thank NPR for demonstrating their corruption. They used the excuse of Political Correctness to try and destroy Juan Williams. Shame on them!

If You're Not Worried, You should Be
We need to BAN all forms of Political correctness because it is pure corruption. One of the wealthiest men in the world is trying to influence the media message with his agenda by corrupting every organization that he gets his hands on. He wants to shut-down Fox news because they offer an opposing opinion. Anyone associated with Fox is his enemy.

Action To Take
Contact your representatives and demand that Congress stop ALL Funding to NPR immediately!

The Old Shell Game

Obama's Latest Trick
While our "Leader" is out on the campaign trail trying to salvage his power base in Washington, he has something else up his sleeve. Obama knows that Social Security is NOT giving a cost of living expense increase to Seniors because the government cannot afford it. Also his healthcare bill screws Seniors of $500 Billion dollars removed from Medicare. It is being moved and re-allocated to help pay for the 30 million new recipients of ObamaCare. Consequently, it reduces Medicare coverage and makes healthcare more expensive for those living on a fixed income. These people are the ones who require the MOST healthcare and generally, can least afford it because they are not working.

Seniors Are Mad
Obama knows that the population of Seniors are avid voters and he also knows that they are REALLY mad about ObamaCare policies and requirements, as well as Social Security frozen benefits. He actually does not care about Seniors, but he does not want their votes to affect his power base in DC. So what is he suggesting?

Placate the Seniors Once Again
Once again, Seniors are being "duped" into thinking that the Government is looking out for them. Ha! Obama wants Congress to borrow MORE money so they can give ALL Seniors a check for $250. Wow, what a nice guy!

Why Should You Care?
Hey you say, I'm not a Senior, why should I care? If the government can do this to Seniors, they can do it to anyone! Get it now? Right now the government needs you to work hard and pay your taxes. Just shut up and pay up. Let them take care of everything.

Word to the Wise
Don't think that you will EVER see any payments from the Federal Government in the form of Social Security. It's a ponzi scheme passed in 1934 by Progressive FDR. Save for your own retirement and DO NOT RELY on the Government for ANYTHING! You can not believe a politician or BIG Government. Look at their existing programs. They are all failures!

H1N1 Scare - Politics?

What Happened to the H1N1 Scare?
The flu that caused a near panic world-wide in 2009 seems to have gone away. Purported to have caused almost 20,000 deaths around the world, this disease was supposed to be the next Armageddon. Recall that it closed down schools, quarantined travelers, and forced Obama to get on the fast track to getting a vaccine program in the USA.

Latest News
Was This an Over-reaction? Did the WHO over-react to the flu virus? Did they unnecessarily cause a world-wide panic? Is this the same type of over-reaction that has environmental extremists claiming that the earth is dying because of man-made pollutants?

It makes you wonder just how much is "HYPE" and how much is true about the H1N1 AND "Global Warming." The United Nations scientists associated with the Global Warming/Climate Change "pandemic" have largely shown to be liars and charlatans. Could this also be the case with the flu?

Bottom Line-Be Wise
The H1N1 vaccine is readily available. Take advantage of it - especially if you are a Senior or have a chronic disease. Better safe than sorry. Why take chances on something that can kill you? Any form of influenza IS dangerous.

One Party Rule Has to Go

Progressive Agenda
Well we've seen the Progressives in action for almost two years now and look where we are.
  • Obama borrowed 3 TRILLION in less than 2 years - WORLD RECORD
  • Goverment and labor unions owns General Motors
  • Record unemployment continues to get worse
  • ObamaCare passed on Christmas Eve and we don't want it
  • $800 Billion dollar Stimulus passed and did NOT create ANY "Shovel Ready Jobs" as promised
  • Race relations in America are at an all-time-low
  • The Federal Government refuses to enforce the BORDERS
  • Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to enforce voting laws against the Black Panthers
  • Obama is trying to take-over control of the Internet
  • Political Correctness is running wild
  • Iran is busy building nuclear weapons without any US pressure to halt them
  • The value of the dollar is shrinking as you read this
  • Government spending and waste continues unfettered and out-of-control
  • The National debt is unsustainable

Had Enough Yet?
The list could go on, but these are just a few of the highlights. It's no wonder that the Democrats running for re-election are distancing themselves from the President and his failed policies that THEY VOTED for!

Action To Take
Get out and vote. Dump the Progressive incumbents. They are destroying America.
