2014 Mid-Term Analysis

The people who voted yesterday sent a clear message to Washington. STOP! Turn this ship around. Republicans did not win because they ran on a platform of issues, because they didn’t. Republicans won last night, big time, because Americans (from all parties) don’t like (66% of all Americans) the consequences of liberalism and the transformation Barack Obama is committed to. Still, the day after, committed to. They don’t like the flagrant violation of the Constitution. The Republican victory last night was to stop Obama. It was a rejection of Democrat incumbents. It was, to stop Democrats.

Pardon me while I gloat.

Other notable victories last night . . .

  • Mike Hill, a true conservative Republican who happens to be Black, is the first Black elected to the Florida House of Representatives since reconstruction, was President and founder of the local Tea Party in Pensacola, and won by a 2 to 1 margin.
  • The first Black senator from the South was elected last night. A Tea Party-supported conservative republican. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC)
  • Utah elected the first Black woman to the House of Representative, Rep. Mia Love (R-UT)
  • Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin, wins third election in four years. Successfully fought Big Labor, turned a deficit into a surplus, and lowered taxes.
  • Illinois elected the first republican governor in over 30 years. Cook County, (Chicago) went Republican by a 2 to 1 margin.
  • Anthony Brown, Obama’s Mini-Me and Democrat Governor in Maryland got beat by 10 points by Republican Larry Hogan.
  • Republicans also unseated Democrat governors in Massachusetts, and Arkansas.
  • All of the federal representatives from Arkansas are now Republican. Home of the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor.
  • Texas AG Greg Abbott (R) beat Wendy Davis (D) of abortion and war on women fame, by 21 points.
  • Perdue (R) beat Nunn (D) (Sam Nunns daughter) by 8 points overall in the Georgia Senate race, and by 31 points in Fulton County (Atlanta).
  • Deal (R) beat Carter (Jimmy Carter’s grandson) by 8 points overall for Georgia Governor, and by 29 points in Fulton County.

The mandate is clear, should the Republicans decide to accept it. Turn this ship around. Do what the people elected you to do. The stakes could not be any higher. The question is not what part of Obama’s agenda you will accept. The election wasn’t about walking across the aisle to Obama’s side. It was 180 degrees from that. The question is what part of your agenda the loser will accept. And keep in mind, there’s nothing wrong with gridlock if that’s what it takes to keep the country from going over the cliff. Use your power of the purse to do what you can. It’s a tool, and responsibility, that the Constitution gave you. Use it.

Democrat Campaign Strategy; Racial Fear

Whether by design or by accident, this years mid-term campaigning brought out the racist-ness and divisiveness in Democrat party operatives and its leaders. That the “race card” and class/gender warfare is employed is nothing new for Democrats. So what’s different this time? This time, Republicans are not campaigning on any kind of platform. Instead, Republicans are campaigning on the misery caused by the confluence of bad policies and incompetence of the Obama administration. It’s a given, considering two-thirds of the country feel Obama is taking the country in the wrong direction.

But whether that was by design, or the result of being shell-shocked by Democrats demagoging every policy initiative they advance is immaterial. My money is on the latter. The establishment republicans are afraid of their own shadow and, afraid of advancing true conservative values. (And I don’t mean social values.) What they’re really afraid of is being demagoged by Democrats because, history shows, they don’t know how to respond to being lied about. The result has been to draw out the worst in Democrat politics.

  • The second worst president in American history, Jimmy Carter, said that any criticism of President Barack Obama is because of his race. My response to him is HERE.
  • A mailer in Alabama scaring Blacks into voting Democratic because if they don’t, they’ll be putting the KKK in charge.
  • In support of Mary Landreau, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) projects racism upon Republicans by saying “I don’t care what [Obama] does, he is not going to be acceptable because of his skin color.”
  • An ad by the Senate Majority Fund, a group tied to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is running ads on black-oriented radio, attempting to link Thom Tillis to the death of Trayvon Martin.
  • Georgia Democrats are also trumping up racial fear in the minds of Black voters saying to vote for Jimmy Carter’s grandson for governor, Jason Carter, if you want to prevent another Ferguson.

Now, there is evidence that their racial accusations are beginning to backfire in Chicago and Georgia, with Black preachers endorsing Republicans and denouncing the promotion of racial fear to, ostensibly, get Blacks scared enough to get out and vote for Democrats.

Devoid of anything positive to run on, all that is left is spreading racial fear. It’s not only what desperation looks like. It exposes the moral standard of the Democrat Party.

F Whitey, Let’s Riot

All the information that has been leaking from the Grand Jury investigation concerning Michael Brown’s death seems to be pointing to no indictment. That, ferguson_race_logicunder the circumstances, Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson acted properly.

The odds that the Jesse Sharpton’s and other race baiters of the world will accept that, if that’s what the decision turns out to be, are slim. There have already been threats of “retaliation” if Wilson is not put on trial. And therein lies the problem with race relations in this country. There’s no leadership from this “post-racial” administration calling for calm, reason, and a primer on law and order, and there should be. Before things get further out of control.

Kids Shooting Kids In Pensacola

Here is a case where youth violence, youth gun violence specifically, has been a growing concern in the Pensacola area. One way to reach the kids, it was thought, was to give them something to do and try to teach them to behave responsibly.

An altercation early Sunday morning that led to a 16-year-old being shot and a 15-year-old being knocked unconscious occurred right after a Stop the Violence concert, according to an event organizer. A co-organizer of the concert, Bill Marshall, said the concert had been a free event where local music artists performed and spoke to the youths about ending violence in their communities.

So much for that idea. The Pensacola News Journal reporter does not say, but from the address of the place where the free concert was, it seems to be in a predominately Black neighborhood. I could be wrong in assuming that the youths involved were Black, but I doubt it. The reporter could clear this doubt up with just a little more information.

You can’t fix the out-of-control youth issue when you don’t know what the problem is. The problem is that Black youth unemployment is 33.4 percent nationally. That’s almost criminal to have a figure that high. I don’t know if it is better or worse in Pensacola. It is almost twice that of White youth unemployment at 18.9 percent. Which is still way too high. Either way, for all races, youth unemployment is unacceptably high. This makes for trouble the likes of which occurred over the weekend.

The answer obviously is not free concerts. And it isn’t a higher minimum wage. The answer is in a growing economy. Not a contracting economy like we have now. Contrary to what President Obama thinks (and economist he is not), raising the minimum wage (which is where youths always start) will create less opportunities for them. Not more.

Thad Cochran’s Twofer

Thad Cochran played Blacks in Mississippi like a fiddle, by playing the race card to disparage the tea party, and as an aside, to beat Chris McDaniel.

cochran_race_flier

Learning from the Democrat playbook, he used the same tactics (and people) that they use. Emphasis on use. Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Cochran campaign used Blacks by fomenting racism the same as Democrats.

Where identity politics goes, there’s no difference between establishment Republicans and Democrats any more. How’s that post-racial administration (that Obama campaigned on) working out?

There’s an opportunity here. Is it possible to use this example to persuade Blacks that their victimhood is self-imposed? That the Democrat party is not helping them by keeping them in a perpetual state of victim status. On the contrary. That kind of treatment, and incitement, is keeping them right where Democrats want them. On the Democrat plantation. It’s an opportunity to free them again.

Culture Of Corruption, On Steroids

IRS, V A Hospitals, ICE, Benghazi, ACA, Fast & Furious, Justice Department. Talk about a culture of corruption? Oh. No. Don’t talk about it. Because if you do then you’re a racist.

It’s as if President Obama and everyone in his regime are inoculated from any sort of criticism (or impeachment), blame, or responsibility for anything bad because the President is Black.  What’s amazing to me, is how many people have been indoctrinated into this line of non-thinking?

How did we get to this point? Is it because the administration is loaded with liars, or because it is loaded with ideologues bound to the progressive agenda being put in positions they are not qualified (like Gen. Eric K. Shinseki to head the V A) to fill? Starting with the President himself, I believe it is the latter. The lying comes as a result, like Benghazi, of trying to cover up the incompetence.

Simply impeaching the president will not fix the problem. It will take an election and re-appointments of competent people into responsible positions (from the Cabinet on down) in government. America, it’s time to take out the garbage.

Is Obama Immune From Impeachment?

It remains to be seen whether articles of impeachment will ever be brought against President Obama. But you see what happens to you, or what you are called, if you opine on the failures of Obama’s policies, and his deceiving the American people to the point of being awarded the “lie of the year,” or his making up laws around the legislative branch, and not enforcing laws enacted by the legislative branch, and for using regulatory agencies of the executive branch to harass and punish political opponents. Basically, for usurping powers not granted to him by the Constitution.

You are labeled a racist by the race hustlers, elected Democrats, and the compliant media. So it is no wonder that President Obama acts as a dictator with the impunity of someone who has been inoculated from impeachment. With immunity essentially granted him by virtue of the color of his skin. Jonathan Turley has another way to describe this immunity. He calls it a “cult of personality.”

What do you think the chances for impeachment would be, if not already done by now, if the President of such a lawless administration were White, from any political party?

Obama’s War On Women, Poor, Hispanics, And Young

For better or worse, a truism of American politics is that voters vote their pocketbooks. Yet according to a new report on median household incomes by Sentier Research, in 2012 millions of American voters apparently cast ballots contrary to their economic self-interest. A testament to the power of a media devoted to their president.

Now for some economic facts

Obama’s economic policies are hurting the people who elected him more than any other demographic.

President Obama was re-elected with 51% of the vote. Five demographic groups were crucial to his victory: young voters, single women, those with only a high-school diploma or less, blacks and Hispanics. He cleaned up with 60% of the youth vote, 67% of single women, 93% of blacks, 71% of Hispanics, and 64% of those without a high-school diploma, according to exit polls.

Family income decrease from President Obama’s 5 most dedicated demographics since his “recovery” began.

  • -7% single women households, with or without children
  • -9.6% under age 25
  • -10.9% Black heads of households
  • -4.5% Hispanic heads-of-households
  • -8% incomes of workers with a high-school diploma or less fell by about 8% (-6.9% for those with less than a high-school diploma and -9.3% for those with only a high-school diploma).

To put that into dollar terms, in the four years between the time the Obama recovery began in June 2009 and June of this year, median black household income fell by just over $4,000, Hispanic households lost $2,000 and female-headed households lost $2,300.

The middle class is getting poorer.  While the minimum wage remained steady, the median family income has fallen every year since Obama’s “recovery” began.

Makes one wonder what it would take for these people to realize that what they are living is not what Obama is saying, but what he is doing? He’s not going to stop campaigning. He can’t. Because if he does, the gullible voters that elected this community organizer president twice might begin to realize that President Obama is more interested in gaining political power than making the economy, and their lives, any better.

Which reminds me of what Rand Paul said in this post . . .

Liberals don’t seem to get the point that if you’re trying something and the objective evidence shows that it’s not working, why not try something different?

Paul indirectly referred to the famous definition of insanity as trying something again and again while expecting a different result.

A Liberal Diagnosis

An excerpt from an interview with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) over the weekend. World Net Daily’s Gina Loudon asked “What is wrong with the people who don’t understand why conservatism works, and why liberty is so important?”

Sen. Rand Paul, Gina Loudon at CPAC 2014

The “people” being referred to here is the “fair shot” crowd. The pols who prey on wealth envy and class warfare, who presume that because there is a bottom rung on the socio-economic ladder, that there is something unfair about that. 

Sen. Paul, R-Ky., had the answer to her question.

I tell people it’s the ‘big heart, small brain syndrome.’ Liberals have big hearts, but they’re not using all their brain capacity. I don’t know,” he said. “Liberals don’t seem to get the point that if you’re trying something and the objective evidence shows that it’s not working, why not try something different?”

Paul indirectly referred to the famous definition of insanity as trying something again and again while expecting a different result.

Blacks Killing Themselves

In New York City for 2012. . .

31,328 – number of black babies killed by abortion

24,758 – number of black babies born

Black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in NYC, which is 19% Black.

Any questions?

I’m Black. Don’t shoot me!

pre-birth

I’m Black. Don’t kill me!

How can anyone defend this wiping out of the Black population? How can we build a middle class when we’re killing our children faster that we’re raising them? And how can President Obama and the likes of Jesse Sharpton sleep at night when their social policies support such genocide? Or blackocide?
