Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

FDR got us into WWII? Did you ever hear about Pearl Harbor?
Let's examine what would have happened if we didn't get involved in the European Theater. Before one American set foot on the European continent the Soviets had soundly defeated the German Sixth army and was heading west. Without American forces occupying the bulk of western Europe the Soviets would have marched right to the Atlantic and the Iron Curtain would have encompassed France, Italy , Belgium, Holland and the Scandinavian countries with Spain likely falling in short order. It would have been the Soviets that captured German rocket technology and Werner Von Braun would have been working for them.

That's kind of simplistic. You assume legalizing drugs would evaporate gangs. Gangs have been a part of society as long as we've had cities, but the brutality we contend with is relatively new. You have to get beyond the accompanying elements of inner-city gangdome and go to the heart of the matter, too much idle time and non-existent family involvement. As you know, having jobs available to our kids isn't enough, they need to see a need for jobs, that comes from the home and vicariously, the government. We encourage idleness by subsidizing it.
So supporting the illicit drug trade is the solution?

Comedienne and former star of "SNL," Victoria Jackson, has stirred some heated controversy surrounding an abortion comment she posted to her Facebook page, RadarOnline reports Dec. 16.

Jackson posted a message from her Tea Party friend, Jim Riley. In addition to it, she added her own thoughts to what he wrote. She basically compared the evil killer of the Connecticut school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary to those of abortion doctors and women who have the procedures done.

The "SNL" comedienne wrote:


"My friend Jim Riley posted:'Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old 'dads' doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get."

She didn't stop the insults there.

The 53-year-old Jackson slammed President Obama's speech on Friday after the school shootings.

She wrote:


“Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said,‘The majority of those who died today were children – beautiful little kids …They had their entire lives ahead of them…

“YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR.

“ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!”

How do you feel about Victoria Jackson's comments? She's a self-proclaimed conservative activist. Did she cross the line calling those who abort their babies killers like the man who mass murdered 26 innocent people inside a school?

Can't separate by state borders.
New York and California both have distinct regions that do not follow the blue state model.
At least sixty of the sixty-seven counties in Pennsylvania are republican.
California taxation is so top-heavy that 30,000 taxpayers are providing most of the state revenue.
Your last sentence defeats your own argument. Should those 30,000's votes be artificially counterbalanced with low population, low tax revenue districts? Why should someone in a rural red county who has a net negative federal tax bill have their vote artificially buoyed to equal a voter with a net positive tax bill? Get rid of the Electoral College, its an archaic system that no longer serves a valid purpose.

I was told that it is just too soon to compare things like these because those people just died and everyone needed time to grieve. While I am so very saddened by their deaths and I too am grieving, I am also saddened that since that attack in Connecticut, more than 7,000 innocent human persons have been killed in abortion clinics. Since January 22 of 1973 over 55,000,000 innocent human beings have been killed by surgical abortion in America alone. It is not too soon; it is actually long overdue.

I am being told that I am just opportunistic. Yes, I am. I am using this opportunity to bring to light the senseless and brutal murder of millions of innocent children who deserve to have their deaths mourned. I am using this opportunity to show the hypocrisy of a nation who defends, protects and funds the murder of her own citizens in the name of choice.

The comparisons were meant to do many things, and one of those things was to create a buzz and get abortion talked about. It worked. When abortion is being talked about and the truth is being exposed, lives are saved. One of my goals as an abortion abolitionist is to never allow abortion to fade away as a non-topic. My goal is to make it so prevalent and so front and center that this nation and the world are forced to open their eyes and see it for what it truly is. Abortion is an act of homicide and I will take every opportunity to expose this until we see the abolition of the abortion massacre.

Twenty innocent children were killed in Newton on Friday while more than 3,500 innocent children were also killed on Friday at abortion clinics. Our President did not shed a tear for the children murdered at abortion clinics, in fact he supported their killing and has helped pay for it. Law enforcement did not rush into the clinics to try and save any of those children and in fact would race to arrest anyone who did. News cameras were not focused on those buildings trying to figure out just how many were killed; they could care less about the blood spilt on the floors of the abortion clinics.

Not only do I believe it is ok to use events like this to make comparisons to abortion, I believe we must make these comparisons. The fact is, abortion is a hidden crime that will not be shown on the evening news; therefore we must use every opportunity to reveal the horror that is the abortion massacre.

55 million dead babies from 40 years of using abortion as birth control; Let’s see 55 million divided by 40 years equals 1,375,000 killed babies per year, the daily toll is 3,767 babies per day in the USA or 188.35 Sandy Hook Elementary Newton CT mass shootings per day in this country broken down further that is equivalent to almost 4 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings per day in each of the 50 states. Where is the outrage! Let’s look at it in another view, 1,375,000 children slaughtered per year, divided by 50 states equals 27,500 per state divide that by 365 days in a year and the daily carnage by state is 75-76 children on the average per state per day. The daily deaths of the most innocent that need our protection the most should be as criminal as any Sandy Hook school massacre.
Now our government wants to disarm the citizens of this country because of a couple of deranged psychos killing people with guns. Let’s compare gun deaths of all kinds except suicide as that is self-inflicted. Gun deaths in 2010 in the USA were 30,470 of that 19,392 were from suicide and 11,078 were homicide. Where should our outrage be, 30,000 deaths per year from guns or 1,375,000 per year from Pro-Choice? I remember when Roe vs Wade was passed, abortion was to be for the life of the mother, rape or incest not because of a night of drunken sex or because of convenience. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this picture?http://patriotpost.us/ perspective/16366/comments/453 975

Please listen to the interview below. Is this man someone who you deem trustworthy? If so, please spread this interview far and wide. Freedom and humanity need you to do so.

The Obama administration is openly escalating its campaign against private gun ownership, and shaking up the top ranks of the military command structure -- but is it also preparing to make war on the American population? According to a person identified as a former senior military official, the answer to that shocking question is yes.

World-renowned educator and human rights activist Jim Garrow says that the source, man regarded as "one of America's foremost military heroes," told him that President Obama is using a new litmus test for "determining who will stay and who must go" among top-ranked military leaders. That test is whether they will fire on US citizens or not. Garrow says that his source made the disclosure in order to "sound the alarm" over the administration's plans.

While Garrow will not yet reveal the identity of the source, it's important to note that Garrow himself is a man of considerable accomplishment. He is the founder of the Bethune Institute, which has established hundreds of schools throughout China. Three years ago, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work though a group called Pink Pagoda, which combat "gendercide" in China -- that is, the practice of rescuing baby girls who had been abandoned or targeted for infanticide because of the government's one-child policy. He was personally involved in helping to save the lives of more than 50,000 Chinese girls. He joins Gary Franchi on WHDT World News to discuss this new "Litmus Test."

Surprise surprise – Communists are liars. Obama will lie right to our faces and not feel a second of shame because the ends justify the means.
Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro called Obama’s inaugural speech,‘Orwellian’, proving that he hates the Constitution.
But it’s worse than that. I’ve been saying for over four years now, that the Democrat party needs to be rebranded. They should be called Democrat Socialists because that’s what they are. Democrat voters should at least know what they’re voting for.
A former “liberal” Democrat agrees with me that “it is time to officially put an end to the mincing, hesitant criticisms of the American Liberals and the Democrat Party.”
Actually, it’s long past time. The Democrat Party’s goal is communism.
I have a confession to make: I used to be a Liberal. In the 1988 Presidential election, I campaigned door-to-door for Michael Dukakis. In 1992, I was a full-throated supporter of Carol Moseley Braun, the ultra-social liberal Senator from Illinois who, among other things, supported partial-birth abortion, gay marriage and gun control. I voted for Clinton both times, and, despite thinking he was a knob, voted for Gore in 2000. Please believe me when I say that the Democrat Party’s end goal is communism.
Okay, they won’t call it communism. To the Liberal Democrat (here on out, let’s just call them Democrats because there are no moderate or conservative Democrats anymore), the government is the source of prosperity. Government can succeed in equalizing outcomes, which free market capitalism does not do. Government must dictate what all citizens believe and what they are educated in. Wealth, prosperity, equality, all come from Government. For the Democrat, if there is a problem in society, it is Government’s role to solve the problem.
***
The Democrats didn’t just seek to bail out the banks; the Democrats had to demonize the banks. It was those greedy Wall Street Bankers who preyed on poor, unsuspecting people and FORCED them to take out a mortgage that they had no hope of being able to pay back. The Democrats absolved themselves of any culpability, despite the fact they are one hundred percent the cause of the Sub-Prime Mortgage Crisis.
Why? Because Democrats are communists. They want to control the means of production. They want to control the financial institutions. They want to redistribute wealth in order to make all individuals the same – a collective. Because, as Obama likes to point out, that’s what’s fair. To the Democrat,“fairness” is the most important litmus test of a society. It trumps liberty. It trumps private property rights. It trumps the rights of individuals. It trumps out Constitution and system of government. We must make all things “fair.”
Democrats are communists. And if we don’t recognize that and speak clearly about it, we will continue down this road and we will lose this country.
It should surprise no one that Obama’s biggest cheerleaders are Communists.
Watch Van Jones say Obama Inauguration Speech Was More Important Than George Washington’s.
Sam Web leader of Communist Party USA celebrated Obama’s reelection:
An African-American president was re-elected to the office of the Presidency, the Democrats unexpectedly strengthened their hand in the Senate and House, and victories, including big ones for marriage equality, were registered at the state level.

The Communist Party said a year ago that the 2012 elections would be the main front of the class and democratic struggle, and subsequent events have confirmed that fact.
Wow, some nut at a tabloid calls Obama's Inaugural Address "Orwellian" and this is some kind of "proof" that the Harvard Constitutional scholar "hates the Constitution"?

And y'all expect to be taken seriously?

Rubio’s Foolish Gamble on a Return to Bushism

If he aspires to be a competitive presidential nominee in three years, Rubio is doing things all wrong. That’s fine by me, but it makes me wonder what he could be thinking. A future Republican nominee needs to be able to claim credibly that he does not represent the second coming of George W. Bush. Right now, Rubio seems to working overtime to confirm that this is exactly what he wants to be. At this point, it’s probably too late for him to stop and reverse course, but it’s interesting that he doesn’t even seem to be aware of the danger. Someone might object that no one will care about the next nominee’s similarities to Bush, but Republican leaders have consistently underestimated how damaging Bush’s legacy is for them. It may not be as much of a problem as it was in 2012, but it will still be a real problem for years to come. If Republicans think the close resemblance to Bush won’t matter, they are kidding themselves.
