"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

James Buchanan.jpgHistorians for years have believed that James Buchanan our 15th President was our worst President?  That is no longer so...our 44th President, Barack Obama is the worst and most destructive president we have ever had.
Since his election in 2008, we have been brainwashed into believing what we read, hear, see and know to be true is not so.  We have been conned into believing that if we accuse this President and this administration of systematically and deliberately sabotaging the Constitution, the economy, our national security and the culture, we will be labled as madmen and racists. So we undergo vicious and relentless assaults for advocating for Constitutional Federalism, limited government, individual rights and liberties, equality under the law and the protection and preservation of our most sacred values.
Barack Obama is a true step-child of Saul Alinsky as is the woman who wants to succeed him...Hillary Clinton.They both demonize their enemies and never let a rational and factual national discussions take place on any vital issue before us.  They are not about solving problems.  They are about keeping racial and class grievances alive.
Because the Democrat Party is now nothing more than a collection of left wing victim groups with narrow and radical agendas, they are able to mount multiple attacks simultaneously using a host of issues that are usually not substantive but instead emotional and distracting.   In these efforts they have the willing collaboration of most of the so called "main stream" press and media.  The party of Barack  Obama and Saul Alinsky means to scare the hell out of guileless Americans on a daily basis.
Republicans and conservatives have not been able to mount
an effective counter offensive or use social media and the internet as potent strategic and tactical weapons to deliver truth and facts to the American people.
As a consequence, we are deluged with lies, distortions and ad hominem attacks designed to make the average person confused and misinformed.

I was born the son of a working man and I shall die the son of a working man.  I can't help it.  It is not only in my genes but seared deep into my soul.
My father was an immigrant and my mothers people were here since the early seventeenth century.  Throughout my life I have straddled the great American class divide with a foot in both American stories that have made up our history.
I grew up in a typical American factory small town of the past.  This was a place where the rich, the poor, the working poor and the middle class lived cheek to jowl with one another.  We went to school together, worshiped together and essentially grew up together.  Our lives however different because of wealth and position, were not foreign or alien to one another.  Any resentment we might have had regarding those with more would be settled academically or on the sports field where we were all equal.  The only members of the Jewish faith in my small town were my neighbors.  My scoutmaster was a black man, his son was the first person I ever wrestled competitively and my Aunt integrated our First Baptist Church when the Black Baptist Church  burnt down. 
My parents taught my brothers and I that we were neither better nor worse than any one else and that in America our future would be what we determined and not what anyone else determined it to be.   I didn't know it at the time but I was a very lucky fellow to have had the upbringing I had.
When I was 20,  I went off to New York City to finish my education and find my destiny.  The NYC of the early sixties was still the old New York of tribes, enclaves and neighborhoods which had epitomised the city for years like a long running Broadway play.  This was the New York that reinvented itself every 20 years in order to accommodate the latest group of refugees from the rest of the world and yet retained the basic values that served as the glue to keep everything from flying apart.  The artists also came here to paint, compose, write, act, sing, perform and change the culture with the passionate verve that only the talented driven by the addiction to create can understand.  The edge of the envelope was NYC and it was glorious.

Hillary Clinton is high flying, adored and will become "Madam President" according to Senator Claire McCaskill at a recent event of the same name hosted by Emily's List in Iowa.
We have apparently entered an age of "firsts" with Obama as our first black President.  Now apparently it is the intention of the elites who rule us to run the table with Hillary as the first woman President followed by our first Latino/Latina, our first Gay or Lesbian and our first Trans-gendered POTUS, the latter who if from California, will be allowed to use what ever public restroom in the White House they seem inclined to need on any particular day.  This if for nothing else will add a touch of spice to those on White House tours, provided those tours of the "Peoples House"  have resumed.
NBC and CNN have planned a docu-drama and a documentary about
Hillary causing the Republicans to cry foul when they simply should demand that each film  truthfully include "Hillarycare", White Water, the Rose Law Firm billing records, Vince Foster, "Travelgate", cattle futures, Chinese money, Marc Rich, Lewinsky, Flowers etc, the "Russian Reset" and Benghazi in all their dubious glory.   A blue dress with a stain could provide a suitable backdrop for either film with the stain forming the dot for the "i" in "Hillary" superimposed over the dress.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton This former "Goldwater Girl" who discovered Saul Alinsky and then Bill Clinton...a sequence which should have sent her into therapy instead of the Arkansas Governors Mansion and then the White House, remains a riddle wrapped in a mystery shrouded in an enigma.
After the White House she migrated to New York where she was elected U. S. Senator as a prelude to her coronation as President.  This caused her co-Senator, Chuck Schumer much angst and agita since she had this nasty habit of sucking the oxygen out of every room they shared making it impossible for Schumer to talk non stop without taking a breath.
In the run up to 2008 she seemed unbeatable.  She had now spent 16 years as First Lady/Co-President and Senator, telling us constantly that "she would be very good " for us.  Then from out of left field came the man with dreams from his father and suddenly Hillary ceased to be inevitable and Bill ended the campaign disliking Obama so much that he begged Hillary in 2012 to run against him because he was such an "Amateur"

The next president we elect has to scare half the world.   The half who hates us! And it has to be done to preserve a true peace with our freedoms and unalienable rights intact.
Since 9/11/2001 we have spent$1.461,780,254,414 on the wars on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. When you add in indirect costs that figure grows to $2.4 trillion because we borrowed money to fight these wars  We have lost 6,745 in this effort to date and we have suffered 51,303.wounded and all of this will cost us more money down through the years because that is the terrible nature of war.
Despite all of this we are no closer to ending the scourge of Islamic terror then we were on 9/12/2001, no matter what Obama says.
The recent jailbreaks and release programs in seven Islamic countries plus our own idiotic releases of detainees from "Gitmo" and the Jihadists in Syria have put up to 17,000 potential mujahadin or shaheeds back on the battlefield or ready for acts of terror.
This and the false narrative that Al Quaeda is "on the run"has  directly led to a potential month long close down of 19 embassies from the Maghreb to the Levant to Central Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Revenge of the Jabberwock

  `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths outgrabe.
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
  The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
  The frumious Bandersnatch!"
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
  Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
  And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
  The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
  And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
  The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
  He went galumphing back.
"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
  Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
  He chortled in his joy.
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths outgrabe.
JABBERWOCKY by Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872) 
No rational person knows what Lewis Carrol was saying in this famous poem.  Only we who are addicted to politics and the denizens of the District of Columbia and other political "gulags" claim to understand it. 
This is because politics through the ages has been for the most part, more insane than sane, more sordid than sublime, more shameless than inspirational and more cynical than altruistic.  The moments when "homo politicus"rises to levels which transforms the business of politics to the art of politics or to that which has clarity, occur, but seem few and far between.
