Politico: "Grim Dems Await Huge House Losses"

And if the Democrat-oriented, Journolista staffed Politico is writing like this, the mood really is grim:

There is nearly uniform consensus among Democratic campaign professionals that the House is gone — the only question, it seems, is how many seats they will lose.

A senior party consultant who was on the low end with his predictions said the party would lose between 40 and 50 seats. On the high end, one Democratic consultant said losses could number around 70 seats.

All spoke to the grimness of the mood.

“It sucks,” said Dave Beattie, a Florida-based Democratic pollster who is working on a slate of competitive House races and who acknowledges that the lower congressional chamber is lost. “I’m resigned to the fact that it sucks.”

“If some Democratic consultant told you they are feeling better, they must have dropped some heavy drugs,” said a senior pollster who is working for candidates in competitive races. “It’s hard.”

“Everybody that is tied will lose, and everyone that is ahead by a few points will lose because of the GOP wave,” said one party media consultant who is involved in a wide array of House races. “There are going to be some surprises.”

“In a wave election, part of the problem is that you feel powerless. Everything I feel I know how to do, that I’m trained to do, I can’t do. And that feeling is pervasive,” said the pollster. “There’s a sense that there’s nothing you can do about it. When you know your friends are on the chopping block, it’s hard.”

“There’s nothing worse than talking to an incumbent member of Congress who’s been cut off by the DCCC and who has no money,” said another Democratic consultant who has worked on crafting some of the party’s TV ads this cycle. “It’s like talking to a dead man walking.”

Another sign of the times....a half full arena in what used to be deep Blue territory in Cleveland when Barack Obama and Joe Biden made their final "Moving America Forward" rally in an appeal to Democrats to get out and drink the Kool-Ade one more time.

And that's with the SEIU busing people in.

You can only fool people for so long.

FINAL USA Today/Gallup Generic Poll - GOP 55%, Dems..40%

That's at a 45% turnout rate.

Things stay bad for the Democrats with Gallup's Higher Turnout model:
Republican 52%, Democrat 42%.

According to Gallup, "..this year's 15-point gap in favor of the Republican candidates among likely voters is unprecedented in Gallup polling and could result in the largest Republican margin in House voting in several generations. This means that seat projections have moved into uncharted territory, in which past relationships between the national two-party vote and the number of seats won may not be maintained."

Vote early and often. And don't forget to contact your local GOP office and help with poll watching and get out the vote efforts. This ain't the time to ease up, cousins.

Jihadi Yusuf Islam (AKA Cat Stevens) Featured At Jon Stewart Rally

The “Restoring Sanity” rally on the National Mall yesterday put on by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert was a travesty in many respects, but one of its featured guests underlined that in a unique way.

Appearing as a featured guest at the rally was none other than Yusuf Islam, AKA 'Cat Stevens' before he converted to Islam. Stevens was actually barred from coming to America during the Bush Administration because of his radical views, but has had no problem getting visas since the Obama Administration took over.

Among other things, Yusuf Islam was an enthusiastic endorsee of the death sentence fatwa pronounced by the Ayatollah Khomeini on writer Salman Rushdie, as shown here on British television in 1989 :

Robertson: You don’t think that this man deserves to die?

Y. Islam: Who, Salman Rushdie?

Robertson: Yes.

Y. Islam: Yes, yes.

Robertson: And do you have a duty to be his executioner?

Y. Islam: Uh, no, not necessarily, unless we were in an Islamic state and I was ordered by a judge or by the authority to carry out such an act – perhaps, yes..

Robertson: Would you be part of that protest, Yusuf Islam, would you go to a demonstration where you knew that an effigy was going to be burned?

Y. Islam: I would have hoped that it’d be the real thing.

Yussuf reiterated those sentiments in the New York Times after the interview:

The musician known as Cat Stevens said in a British television program to be broadcast next week that rather than go to a demonstration to burn an effigy of the author Salman Rushdie, ”I would have hoped that it’d be the real thing.”

The singer, who adopted the name Yusuf Islam when he converted to Islam, made the remark during a panel discussion of British reactions to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s call for Mr. Rushdie to be killed for allegedly blaspheming Islam in his best-selling novel ”The Satanic Verses.” He also said that if Mr. Rushdie turned up at his doorstep looking for help, ”I might ring somebody who might do more damage to him than he would like.”

”I’d try to phone the Ayatollah Khomeini and tell him exactly where this man is,” said Mr. Islam, who watched a preview of the program today and said in an interview that he stood by his comments.

In other words, Yusuf Islam hopped off the peace train he used to sing about when he became a Muslim.

Of course, Yusuf's story now is that he was only joking and his comments were taken out of context.

I don't think so, do you? And neither does Salman Rushdie.

I don't mind confessing that I frequently find Jon Stewart laugh-out-loud funny, even if I don't particularly care for his politics most of the time. But to give a platform to Yusuf Islam? That took some real chutzpah, especially from someone like Stewart who champions freedom of expression. How would Yusuf Islam react to a fatwa against Jon Stewart?

And I wonder, given Stewart's ethnicity - did he ever ask Yusuf Islam how he felt about what the Qu'ran says about Jews?

Appalling. There's no other word for it.

The Inkjet Bomb Plot

The latest manifestation of the Religion of Peace involved a number of explosive devices utilizing ink toner cartridges as containers..some set to explode in midair ala' Lockerbie and two who were mailed to Chicago area Jewish synagogues.

The toner cartridges were an ingenious way of getting past the scanners,using an innocuous and frequently shipped item to get past the scanners.

A FedEx package intercepted in Dubai and a UPS package stopped in England were both constructed out of close to a pound of PETN explosive powder hidden inside the toner cartridges. PETN is the same explosive used in the failed Christmas Day bombing of Northwest flight 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was trained inYemen. The amounts of PETN discovered in the bombs in Dubai and England were seven or eight times greater than the amount used in the Christmas Day bombing .

Had a plane exploded in mid-air and crashed in the populated areas of Nottingham, Leicester or Derby, all within a 10-mile radius of the airport, the death toll would have been huge.

"The parcel was prepared in a professional way where a closed electrical circuit was connected to a mobile phone SIM card hidden in the printer," said a Dubai police statement. That means that the devices scheduled to go via air freight were designed to be detonated remotely, so there were obviously local jihadis in England and probably in the US who were part of the plot.

The packages all originated in Yemen, and were allegedly prepared by al-Qaeda, or one of its affiliates. I say allegedly because at this point, the brand name 'al-Qaeda' and the tactic of Islamist terrorism has become so widespread that attributing it to al-Qaeda has simply become a rhetorical convenience.

Part of the problem in Yemen is that history is repeating itself.

Abdullah Ali Saleh, Yemen's dictator has long been the recipient of US aid to the tune of $150 million per year in military aid, training by US personnel and a matching amount in humanitarian and development aid. Most of the military aid and training hasn't gone to fight al-Qaeda, but to shore up the 32-year reign of Saleh from his political enemies. In fact,members of Saleh's clan have been the main recipients of the weapons and training.

There is an openly operating al-Qaeda base in in the Yemeni province of Al Gouf, in the high desert just to the south of San'aa, the capitol.US and Saudi drones have both transmitted intel on the base. It's where Ibrahim Hassan Al Asiri, the Saudi Arabian bomb expert and planner of the latest attack is reported to be stationed, and where the Christmas Bomber was trained.Yet President Saleh categorically refused to allow the US to land Marine counter terrorism forces and Delta Force commandos from the USS Boxer to take the base out, or to allow US aircraft to overfly Yemeni territory to attack it.

If this sounds suspiciously like the situation in AfPak to you, only on a smaller scale, that's entirely correct. A great deal of US blood and treasure could have been saved in the US had simply gone into Afghanistan after the Embassy bombings in 1998, put some boots on the ground, destroyed al-Qaeda's bases there,and taken a slew of prisoners to be interrogated forcefully and then left. Instead, we simply allowed it to fester...just as we're doing in Yemen.

America used to operate differently when someone had the bad sense to try and attack us.

So far, the Obama Administration's response has been to dispatch teams to Yemen to train Yemeni security personnel in better techniques designed to detect bombs of this kind. Given how al-Qaeda and Islamists in general have infiltrated all areas of Yemeni society, that's unlikely to be effective.

There are several inconvenient truths we can garner from this, if we haven't already.

First, the entire rationale for us going into Afghanistan - to prevent it from becoming a failed state and a haven for Islamist terrorism ( now mostly lumped together for political correctness under the term 'al-Qaeda') is flawed. Far more terrorism has originated in Pakistan than ever originated in Afghanistan.There will always be another failed Islamic 'state' to take on the role of training ground and enabler..not to mention the radicalized home grown jihadis now being created in the West by a whole network of Saudi funded radical mosques and madrassahs.

Second,until we make the consequences for attacking us or aiding and abetting those who do far too high for these countries to bear, we will continue to live on a knife edge. As long as we refuse to confront the established Islamic nation-states that fund, harbor and encourage ideological jihad against the West, all our sophisticated and expensive counter-terrorism strategies are simply a matter of playing whack-a-mole, and the game will never end. Eventually, we're going to miss one and a relatively inexpensive jihad attack is going to cost hundreds if not thousands of lives.

As far as the home front, the problem is not entirely one of security. I think by now most astute observers have pretty much figured out that Islam is Islam, and that while a great many Muslims merely desire to live peaceful lives the ideology is what it is, and we are eventually going to have to come to terms with that and find ways to control the spread of radical Islam in the West.

JoshuaPundit's Final Election Predictions - Featuring Weekend Monkey

As usual at election time , I'm joined by Joshuapundit's political guru, Weekend Monkey for our joint election predictions for the mid terms. We'll also be live blogging the results, so be sure to tune in.

RM: Well Monkey, it's that time again

WM: Hee hee, yeah! Let's lay one on the primates!

RM: How do the betting lines look, Monkey?

WM: Nice...especially with a 2% vig!

RM: it's certainly an improvement over your previous arrangements..although I'm surprised you were able to get any vigorish on an election bets tote board. My compliments. Let's start with the House.

I'd be very surprised to see the GOP end up with less than a 60 seat pickup,and it could easily be higher, so I'll say between 60 and 70.. bonanza territory would be a gain of 85 seats - a veto proof majority

WM: In yer ear, Rob. 54 seats. I see them at around 220 or so right now, which is a 42 seat pick up, and I figure they'll take some of the toss ups.But I gotta admit with me giving the ReThugs a 40 odd seat pick up already and 40 toss up seats out there, 60 + seats could happen, and I'm only betting individual seats this year rather than the House composition. And yeah, it could be higher.But 85 seats?Pass that opium pipe around and share, willya?

RM: Well, I didn't predict 85 seats...I just said it would be a bonanza.

WM: Quit yer weaseling, Rob. How many seats you figuring the Rethugs snatch?

RM: OK...a total gain of 64 seats. I see the GOP at about 225 already, and I figure they get at least half the toss ups in this environment.

WM: The Senate?

RM: I see a split senate, 50-48, with a gain of 9. The Republicans will hold all of their present seats. I see GOP pickups in Arkansas, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Indiana. As for the toss ups, I see the Republicans taking Colorado, Nevada, and West Virginia. Miller wins in Alaska, Marco Rubio in Florida.

These are all too close to call, but I also expect to see an upset in at least one of these four - Connecticut, California, Washington or Illinois.If I'm right, that's 9 seats for the GOP..if the Republicans take two, than that's 10 seats and control of the Senate. And don't forget Delaware. Christine O'Donnell has halved her deficit with Chris Coons in less than a week, things are tightening up there and you never know what might happen come election day, just because that's supposedly such a forgone conclusion..

WM: Hooo! They'll get 8 seats, Rob. I'll go along with you on Arkansas, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Indiana. And on Colorado, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Murkowski will win in Alaska,not Joe Miller, but that isn't gonna affect the end numbers since she'll caucus with the Rethugs.

West Virginia, Delaware and Connecticut stay Democrat, although West Virginia's gonna be tight. I see Manchin taking it by maybe 2 points, max.Delaware stays Democrat unless O'Donnell really is a witch and casts some kinda spell.

RM: Odds on West Virginia, Monkey? And are you laying on Murkowski in Alaska?

WM: 7 to 4 in West Virginia Manchin wins. I'll take all the action I can get from primates giving me Raese plus 4 or 5 points.Alaska's too close for this monkey and it's a weird race with the write in thing going on. But it smells like a win for Murkowski,

RM: California, Washington and Illinois?

WM: Get real,pal. Boxer stays, I know these things. And watch for some entertaining results from King County/Seattle in Washington State and Crook County in ChiTown. Giannoulis is gonna be the Dem Senator from Illinois in a surprise win. Only it ain't gonna be a surprise to the boys in Chicago, if you know what I mean. The dead are probably voting like the loyal Democrats they are right now, as we're talking.

The way I see it, it's gonna be a big night for the Rethugs, but not as big as some people have been saying.

RM: Well, we see November 2nd! You'll be there for the live blogging yes?

WM: Wouldn't miss it. I'll bring the tequilla, you supply the eats and fixin's, okeydoke?

RM: Looking forward to it. Until then, Monkey..

Bad News For Liza Mercowski -Alaska Polls Swamped With Write In Candidates!!


Write-in Senate candidate and RINO Princess Liza Mercooski had enough pull to manage to get a court stay and require the name of all write in candidates to be presented to Alaska voters at the polls, in spite of Alaska's electioneering laws.

Except that over one hundred Alaskans took conservative talk radio host Dan Fagan's advice and also filed as write - in Senate candidates..and there were three other Lisas, including a Lisa M. !

Just for giggles, you should be aware that according to Alaska law if a write-in candidate's name isn't spelled correctly, the vote isn't counted.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin hosted a well attended rally in downtown Anchorage for GOP candidate Joe Miller. He's made a few missteps, but hopefully it will be enough to push him over the finish line. There's no question he would make a far better senator than Lizzza Merwhozi.

Obama Pushing Israel To 'Lease' Israeli Land From Palestinians For 99 Years!

Now that the midterms are approaching their conclusion, the Obama Administration is stepping up pressure on Israel, as I predicted.

The latest outrage? The US is pushing Israel to lease parts of Jerusalem from the 'Palestinians' - who don't own it!

According to Asharq al-Awsat the US wants Israel to lease the Jerusalem neighborhoods of French Hill, Ramat Eshkol and other Jerusalem neighborhoods from the Palestinian Authority for 60 to 99 years, thus recognizing 'Palestinian ownership' of half of Jerusalem.

This is reportedly a US response to Israeli insistence that Obama honor US guarantees made by George W. Bush to Israel the Obama Adminsitration has so far reneged on.
In a letter to Ariel Sharon as a provisio for Sharon signing on to the Roadmap in April 2oo4, Bush stated that a number of long-established Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (AKA the West Bank) would remain part of Israel in any peace settlement with the 'Palestinians'.

Even if the Israelis were stupid enough to knuckle under to this, ( and Netanyahu has no political backing to accept it even if he wanted to) the Palestinians would never accept it, since it would amount to a land swap - which Abbas has already ruled out. Not a single concession, remember?

And what would the Israelis gain anyway? Who would want to live in, build or purchase property that was going to be under the 'Palestinians' thumb in a few years - assuming they actually kept an agreement for once? Would any of the current Jewish residents of East Jerusalem be safe from 'Palestinian' efforts to speed the takeover using terrorism?

And on the Israeli side, not only would Netanyahu lack any political backing for 'leasing' Jerusalem, he doesn't even have any backing for continuing the building freeze.

Meanwhile, the Jews living in Judea and Samaria are continuing to build. And have children.

The world belongs to the stubborn.

White House Involved In Attempt To Get Meek To Drop Out Of Florida Senate Race

The Obama White House was apparently involved in illegally trying to manipulate the Florida Senate race.

After Marco Rubio won the Republican primary, RINO Charlie Crist decided to run as an independent in a three man race with Democrat Kendrick Meek, and for a brief time Crist was even ahead in the polls,with Meek a distant third.

This gave rise in the White House to the strategy of getting Meek to drop out of the race and endorse Crist, probably with the idea of having Crist pull an Arlen Spector after winning the race.

Bill Clinton has admitted that he spoke to Meek several times in an effort to get him to leave the race and endorse Crist.

And Charlie Crist is saying the White House was directly involved and sent ex-president Clinton as an intermediary to seal the deal.

That's actually not much of a stretch. Clinton did exactly the same job in Pennsylvania for Obama with Joe Sestak, trying to get Sestak not to challenge Arlen Spector in the primary in exchange for a White House job.

And the Obama White House did the same thing in Colorado, offering U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff a White House Job not to primary Democrat incumbent Michael Bennet.

This goes beyond power politics and is deep into felony territory. It's a federal crime to offer of something of value contingent on someone's political activity or attempt to influence an election in this fashion.

We already know what Sestak and Romanoff were offered. What we don't know yet is what Meek was offered to drop out of the race or what Mr. Bill received in exchange for being the go-between. Knowing Bill Clinton, you can be certain he wasn't working for free, especially with the potential of a felony bust involved.

The Obama Justice Department naturally declined to investigate this, but I'd be very surprised to see a Republican controlled House not subpoening people to testify under oath and eventually forcing the appointment of a special prosecutor.

When that happens, it will be an open question how far up the chain of command this is going to end up reaching before someone facing prison time and a fine decides not to fall on his sword and starts talking.

Unlike Gordon Liddy, these people are not particularly noted for loyalty or courage.

Complaint Filed Against Union Leaders In Nevada For Coercion Of Membership

Union leaders coercing membership - who knew?

"During the course of early voting, Complaintant has actually witnessed, and is aware about numerous reports about, labor union leaders' activities in and around Clark County. The reports indicate that several unions are engaging in activities that appear to be intended to intimidate and coerce their into casting their votes in the Election under the close scrutiny and supervision of Union personnel."

And there's certainly no problem with those voting machines serviced by SEIU technicians preprogrammed to automatically vote for Harry Reid,or any of the other allegations of election fraud . Hey, Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller said so.

And the fact that he just happens to be a Union beholden Democrat had nothing to do with it.

Just remember, it's all about the agenda. And the Left will do anything they can to stay in power to enforce it.

Barack Hussein OBlahBlah, Philosopher King!

Yesterday I was riffing with a few of my friends about this very subject, and lo and behold...the Politico's Laura Rozen dons the kneepads and treats us to a breathless account of a lecture on Prez Zero as a 'genuine intellectual and one of the few U.S. philosopher presidents'!

The lecture, given by Harvard historian James T. Kloppenberg at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center actually did use the term 'philosopher president' which according to Kloppenberg as channeled by Rozen is a rare breed that can be found only a handful of times in American history.

“There’s John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and John Quincy Adams, then Abraham Lincoln and in the 20th century just Woodrow Wilson,” he said.

He referred to Obama's philosophy as 'pragmatism'!

Yes, you read that right. Pragmatism.

Although a real look at Obama's actions over the last two years might make 'Marxism' a more accurate term.

Rozen doesn't mention it, but just by coincidence Kloppenberg was a donor to Obama's campaign in '08.Apparently the hope n'change contact buzz hasn't worn off yet, like it has on most of the rest of us.It definitely hasn't worn off yet on loyal Journolista Laura Rozen.

Now, the next question is why exactly Rozen batted out this tripe. I assume she was actually at the lecture,but why bother to share it with the rest of us?

And then it came to me. Rozen is very well connected to the Obama White House, and the orders have gone out. This is going to be the new Obama narrative after the beat down coming next week.

Barack Hussein Obama, the Philospher-King...just too worthy and good for this world, assailed by those evil Right Wingers....

The Democrats Create A New Low; 'I Had a One-Night Stand With Christine O'Donnell'

They're still capable of surprising me.

Complete with anatomical descriptions.

The author is anonymous, of course.

The odd thing is that whether he's lying or telling the truth, both the author (and Lefty site Gawker) have revealed themselves as being a lot more despicable than they think Christine O'Donnell is.

Of course, the real message the Left is sending is not to O'Donnell,but to other women - stray off the Left's plantation and we will destroy you. Even if we have to make something up.

No sense of decency whatsoever.

Reconquista: The Democrat's Civil War Surfaces

Much has been said in the dinosaur media about the war in the Republican party between the GOP establishment and the Tea Party insurgents. But very little has been written - deliberately so, I believe - about the civil war raging in the Democrat Party, as many relatively conservative democrats have seen their party completely hijacked by Left wing radicals led by Barack Obama.

An extraordinary window into the scope of that war surfaced today at the HillBuzz Blog, using the format of an open letter to Rush Limbaugh. That's not nearly as odd as it seems, since Limbaugh brilliant 'Reverse Operation Chaos' idea is directed at Hillary supporters, asking them to deliberately punish Obama by sitting on their hands and not voting.

The letter underlines something I've known all along - that Hillary Clinton was the rightful nominee of the Democrats in 2008 but had the nomination stolen from her by the party insiders, the 'Superdelegates', because they were unwilling to alienate George Soros, the nutroots and the Democrat party's Black constituency. And that a number of her former supporters haven't forgotten or forgiven:

None of this is being reported in the media, but a Civil War in the Democrat ranks has been raging since May 31st, 2008…a date every Hillary Clinton supporter knows well, because that was the date of the Democrat Rules & Bylaws Committee Meeting where Howard Dean (then-DNC Chair), Donna Brazile, and scores of other Kool-Aid slurping Obama flunkies took off their masks and revealed the full extent of the Leftist coup that had taken over the party. This was the day when the DNC took delegates Hillary Clinton won in Michigan away from her and handed them to Obama (despite the fact he wasn’t even on the primary ballot in that state, because he removed his name when his campaign realized he’d come in third in that race).

May 31st, 2008 was a day when Hillary “babes” (as you call us sometimes) like us flew to Washington in large numbers to stand outside the Marriott near the National Zoo, where this Rules & Bylaws Committee Meeting was held, to shout for the DNC to count all the votes and operate the nominating process fairly — but they refused. The anger over that day has never abated. In fact, it’s grown considerably since then.

I can’t imagine ever voting for another Democrat again, as long as I live. To Hell with Democrats. This was solidified for me on Christmas Eve of last year, when Democrats rushed Obamacare through the Senate in the dead of night, through various secret channels, and every single Democrat voted for its passage (even supposed moderates like Evan Bayh in Indiana, who quickly realized his vote would cost him re-election…so the coward retired rather then face angry voters over what he did). I just don’t believe Democrats should be given elected office by voters because they cannot be trusted to even read bills before they vote on them, not even when said bills seek to permanently alter the entire American economy. This is reckless and reprehensible to the point of treason.

...I was a Democrat for 32 years before the heavy-handed push for Obama alienated me from the party…and I borrow what Hillary Clinton said about Republicans once, back when she was a Goldwater Girl, and will paraphrase by saying that I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.

After it beat me to a pulp, called me a racist, berated and insulted me, and used Alinsky Rules to hit me with everything it had. Not just me, but all Hillary supporters.

In Iowa, I watched Obama’s ACORN and SEIU goons push and shove old people, bully them, and intimidate them when they wanted to vote for Hillary Clinton. I saw scores of Illinois license plates fill the parking lots outside caucus locations, with Chicagoland Obama supporters illegally entering the Caucus sites to vote for Obama and game Iowa for him. Having planned ahead, Obama supporters actually RAN those caucus sites, and held the doors open for all these fraudulent voters to walk right in, without being asked for IDs, where they then took control of the caucuses and bullied the Iowa residents into supporting Obama — lest they be called RAAACISTS! out in the open in front of their friends and neighbors in those open-air caucuses.

Even more interesting, the letter calls for a purge of the Leftist radicals in the Democrat party, acknowledges that it will probably take until at least 2016 and contends that most of the conservative Democrats and Hillary backers support - Sarah Palin:

Democrats took off the mask. The DNC reveled in being fully Leftist-controlled. Crazy people unapologetic in their Communist admiration took over positions of great influence not just in the DNC, but in our state and federal governments as well.

I’m horrified by that.

Hillary supporters are horrified by that.

...I know for a fact that people I worked with on the Hillary 2008 campaign have been actively working against every single Democrat who supported Obama’s nomination. Everyone who backstabbed Hillary Clinton is being undermined and sabotaged by people who might still be registered as Democrats but have no more loyalty to the party. Sometimes, conservative sites try to make this into a “sour grapes” sort of “Hillary’s revenge” meme — and there might be a taste of this in what’s going on — but the real driving force is that we former Democrats saw just how insane these people really are and we are now doing everything we can, behind the scenes, to use everything we know about the Democrat Party to collapse it from within.

If you think about it logically, there is not enough energy to sustain a years-long drive to remove Obama supporters from office just because people are still upset Hillary Clinton was not the 2008 nominee and is not president today. Sometimes, I think even you believe this is what this is all about. Your “Reverse Operation Chaos” initiative seems predicated on this, but that belief is apocryphal in that it misses a few big marks.

This is and it isn’t about Hillary.

What it’s really about is what the Democrat Party did to Hillary that alienated tens of millions of Jacksonian/Clintonian/middleclass Americans from the party permanently — and this includes what the party and Obama campaign did to Hillary’s supporters themselves (ie, calling them racists, telling them they weren’t wanted, calling them bitter clingers, etc.).

For the first time in our lives, so many of us former Democrats were given an Alinsky taste of what the Democrat Party really stand for…what it really believes…and how it really feels about America, our Constitution, our economy, and our way of life.

Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Obama took the mask off the Democrat Party…and the Leftist gorgon that lurked beneath is something America-loving, middleclass, Jacksonian/Clintonian Democrats want nothing to do with.

As part of your “Reverse Operation Chaos”, you really need to emphasize something the media just won’t talk about — and that’s the simple fact that even if you called yourself a Democrat for 32 years, the way I did, because everyone you grew up with and everyone in your family was a Democrat, that in 2010 it’s time to ask yourselves what that really means.

The reason so many of us support Governor Palin is not just because we see the same Alinksy assaults being waged upon her…but the woman is pitch-perfect in outlining exactly why Obama and the Left are wrong, and why Democrats under Obama are dangerous to have in elected office.

I know you talk about a “Hillary 2012″ but Rush, as much as I love Hillary Clinton, and as much as I worked my heart out for her in 2008, there’s no way that even she can repair the damage Obama has done to the party. Certainly not by 2012. MAYBE the Clintons and their supporters can purge the Obama lunatics from the party by 2016…but I doubt even that will happen. Just like with the Leftists Carter infected the Democrat Party with, Obama legacy hires will be in the DNC for a generation to come…and it might not be until the 2030s before the Democrats can remove the taint Obama and his Leftist agenda have put on the party.

Democrats have made themselves synonymous with anti-Americanism, anti-capitalism, and anti-democracy. Obama and his acolytes decidedly upped the ante when it came to their aggressive push towards socialism…and this Center-Right nation is resisting it in what I am certain will be an epic refudiation (to borrow the Governor’s term) next week.

On November 3rd, no one I know will be resting on any laurels. November 3rd starts the 2012 campaign…and not just the presidential race (where we’ll back Governor Palin) but the drive to knock people like Claire McCaskill out of office, continuing our work to take down every last one of the Obama supporters who backstabbed Hillary Clinton and helped install this socialist into the White House back in 2008. When you hear talk of a Hillary “enemies’ list”, or just “The List” as we call it in HRC supporter circles, this is very much real…and we are truly committed to making sure the Claire McCaskills out there get everything that is coming to them for all their service to Obama and his agenda.

This is by no means small stuff, or hard to understand.

Sarah Palin is, in essence, a Jacksonian who favors lower taxes, small government and a strong national defense, just like most of the Tea Party adherents. And like them - and like yours truly-she is a Republican only incidentally, because there simply is no place for such people in the Democrat Party any longer. I would include Rush Limbaugh and Ronald Reagan in that category as well - both Jacksonians who were left behind years ago as the Democrat Party lurched to the Far Left and became the radical, essentially anti-American edifice it is today.

Oddly enough, we live in a time when it is the conservative movement that is the home of liberals in the classic sense, before the term was perverted by th eAngry Left to mean something very different.

Kevin DuJan apparently understands this quite well. And what he is talking about here is nothing less than the re-surfacing of the Reagan Democrats. He is simply letting us know that he and many others see the distance between their positions and Governor Palin's and the Tea Party's as minuscule.

And there are a lot more of them out there than is commonly supposed. Even the New York Times is being forced to admit that.

My thoughts on all this? Welcome aboard. The more the merrier.

It's time to chase the thieves out of the Temple.

NYT: 'Obama Coalition Is Fraying, Poll Finds'

If this is coming from Pravda-on-the-Hudson not to mention CBS News,next Tuesday is going to be a debacle for the Left:

Critical parts of the coalition that delivered President Obama to the White House in 2008 and gave Democrats control of Congress in 2006 are switching their allegiance to the Republicans in the final phase of the midterm Congressional elections, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Republicans have wiped out the advantage held by Democrats in recent election cycles among women, Roman Catholics, less affluent Americans and independents. All of those groups broke for Mr. Obama in 2008 and for Congressional Democrats when they grabbed both chambers from the Republicans four years ago, according to exit polls.

Remember this is from CBS and the New York Times, both of whom you know notoriously cook the books and skew polls to the Left. And even with all that, they can't find the slightest chance of ginning up some hope.

Quote O'The Day

"The great weakness of bad faith is that it disallows American exceptionalism as a rationale for power. It puts Mr. Obama and the Democrats in the position of forever redeeming a fallen nation, rather than leading a great nation."

Home Grown Jihad - Feds Make Arrest In DC Metro Bomb Plot

A naturalized US citizen from Pakistan was arrested today over a plot to carry out a series of terrorist bombings at stations in the Washington Metro system.

Farooque Ahmed, 34, conspired with people he believed to be al-Qaeda operatives to attack the stations at Arlington National Cemetery, Pentagon City, Crystal City and Court House.

Ahmed came to the attention of the feds because he was trying to obtain certain suspicious materials. The feds set up a sting operation and met with Ahmed in various locations where he agreed to conduct video surveillance of the stations, suggested the best times to launch an attack and the best places to put explosives to maximize casualties.

There have been a slew of cases lately involving Muslim naturalized citizens who have been implicated terrorism plots, including th eFt. Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan, Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-born Times Square bomber, Hosam Smadi, from Jordan, whowas involved in a plot to plant a truck bomb to blow up a Dallas skyscraper, and Michael Finton, who was arrested on similar charges involving an attempt to blow up the Paul Findley Federal Building and Courthouse in Springfield, Illinois.

Unlike some of the others, Ahmed never went overseas for training, although it appears he had such a trip in the planning stages.

I'm certain that when you look at what motivated Farooque Ahmed's decision to kill his fellow Americans, you will find a Saudi-funded wahabi mosque and a radical Muslim Brotherhood oriented imam..just like almost all the other cases of home grown jihad.

Sarah Palin To Stump For Joe Miller In Alaska

More proof, if it was needed that the supposed tiff between Miller and the Palin camp was just so much hot air by the dinosaur media.

She'll be in Anchorage tomorrow night to lead a rally for Miller along with Todd and probably Trig as a cheerleader..I'm told he's pretty good at working the crowd:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe and prominent local conservative radio hosts are scheduled to join the rally via a video feed.

This should probably finish of Lisa what'ser name...who learned yesterday that laws about electioneering near a polling place apply to her too.

Oh. speaking of Lisa whosi's remarks about Joe Miller being 'unfit to lead''s a snippet from his military evaluations:

The Israeli Doctors Head To Haiti To Aid Cholera Victims

You'll remember that after the Haitian earthquake, the Israelis were first on the scene, getting rescue and medical teams to the island within four days, airlifting an entire IDF field hospital across the sea and performing in ways that even had the normally anti-Israel CNN singing their praises.

Well the Israelis are back again...this time to fight a cholera epidemic in Haiti that has already killed almost 300 people, many of them children.

Cholera hasn't occurred in Haiti for years, but polluted water supplies,poor sanitation in the countryside and general devastation hav ebrought on a huge epeidemic that has now reached the outskirts of Port-Au-Prince, the capitol.

Cholera is highly contagious, so groups like Doctors Without Borders have actually been met with riots when they have tried to establish a cholera treatment center as it was preparing to open in the coastal city of St. Marc.

IsraAid is going in anyway to augment the teams already stationed there and assess what needs to be done. They're counting on the good will and trust the Israelis established in Haiti during the quake to enable them to establish a treatment center to fight the cholera epidemic.

Those 'racist' Zionists..what will they get up to next?
