On Thursday, November 21, 2013 the United States Senate, led by the most controversial anti-American in Congress, Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, cast aside the rule of laws of more than 200 years since the Senate was initially formed as stated by a Democratic pollster, Patrick Caddell on FoxNews.com.

Until recently, Jimmy Carter was widely acknowledged as the most incompetent US president in living memory. So it must have pricked Obama’s overinflated ego like a needle when Carter said this of his presidency:
“His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.”
………..In her book, The Great Communitarian Hoax 1998, Jeri Lynn Ball explains it:\”Countless millions are afflicted by a myriad of painful psychological problems, including anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, compulsive behavior, chronic depression, schizophrenia, and manic depressive psychosis.
Obama Unfit to Lead Military Attacks – Exclusive: Joseph Farah Tells Prez ‘To Shut Up About All The People He Wants to Bomb’ | War and Conflict
This week he says he’s ready to attack Iran.
How do I put this delicately?
Barack Obama is unfit to lead any military attack by the U.S. – even one designed to deprive Iran of nuclear weapons that, ultimately, may be used against us.
Why do I say this?

A grim Ministry of Health MoH report on information obtained from former CIA/NSA whistleblower, and “global hero to the masses,” Edward Snowden reveals the Obama regimes fears of a raging pandemic due to upcoming solar storms that, according to the Americans, “may very well alter life on this planet as we know it.”
According to the MoH, one of the computer devices USB flash drive provided to Russian intelligence by Snowden contains over 20,000 pages of top-secret US Defense Department DOD documents related to that military institutions shocking 2004 report to then President George W. Bush that stated “climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters,” that “disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,” and concluding that “Once again, warfare would define human life.
”Important to note about this information obtained from Snowden, this MoH report says, is that it follows a path similar to that of the 2004 Pentagon Report in that the world’s first notice of it came when it was leaked to Britain’s The Guardian Newspaper, and, like Snowden’s spying revelations to this same newspaper earlier this spring, the leakers appear to be “strongly associated” with the “President Carter-General Colin Powell Faction” currently waging a secret war against the Obama regime.

A stunning Main Intelligence Directorate GRU report circulating in the Kremlin today states that two of the United States highest ranking military generals delivered a “personal plea” to President Putin from retired four-star general and former Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the 65th United States Secretary of State, General Colin Powell, and former President Jimmy Carter for “specific military telecommunications assistance” intended to aid them in overthrowing the Obama regime that these Americans claim is “run by blackmail” and is destroying their nation.

“New information on the 2000 election, information now in the hands of top military officials in the US, conclusively proves that America’s government is in “free fall.””
In 2000, a criminal conspiracy overthrew the government of the United States through violence, threats of violence and massive fraud.

Should the US Switch to a Parliamentary System? (This Question Hasn’t Been Asked Since Jimmy Carter) Pacific Standard Magazine ^ | April 9, 2013 | Seth Masket
Posted on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 9:28:06 PM by DogByte6RER
Institutions Worthy of Our Parties: Should the U.S. Switch to a Parliamentary System?
Efforts to curb legislative partisanship have weak track records, so maybe we should consider changing the other side of the equation in order to establish a government that can actually get things done.
Rick Hasen has a really interesting paper up discussing partisan polarization and the possibility of changing the Constitution to deal with it. (And you should really read Jonathan Bernstein’s response, too.) Hasen starts off by asking whether we should be considering moving toward a more parliamentary style of government.
It’s a fair question. We have what looks like a serious mismatch between our parties and our governing institutions. We live in an era of sharply distinct, internally disciplined, programmatic parties with very different visions of how the nation should be run. That’s fine—we have some time-honored institutions, such as elections and majority-rule legislatures, for settling disagreements, even when the disagreements are sharp.
Caddell Unloads on ‘Racketeering‘ GOP Consultants

Pat Caddell, the Fox News Contributor and Democrat pollster who engineered Jimmy Carter’s 1976 Presidential victory, blew the lid off CPAC on Wednesday with a blistering attack on “racketeering” Republican consultants who play wealthy donors like “marks.”

Traditionally, the nation celebrates an inauguration as a demonstration of the peaceful transfer or extension of presidential power, but for half of the nation’s voters Inauguration Day 2013 is more likely to be a day of mourning, a day of fear for the nation’s ability to survive Barack Hussein Obama.
Let’s start with the basics. As Terence P. Jeffrey points out in a recent commentary on CNSnews.com, “During Barack Obama’s first term as president of the United States, the debt of the federal government increased by $5.8 trillion, which exceeds the combined debt accumulated under all presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton.”
A letter to the editor appeared on November 12, 2012 and it read as follows:
“I feel sorry for Jimmy Carter. His first four years as a president were also a complete failure, but he never received a second chance; my how times have changed.”
In regard to this reader’s mini editorial of 11/12 and his lament that Jimmy Carter never received a second chance after his failed presidency. Could it be that in his day he never had the benefit of runaway voter fraud, illegal foreign contributions, or an innate and complete lack of integrity? Times have indeed changed, but the question is whether or not that change is for the better. We already know that the answer to that question, and it is most definitely not!
ONE HUNDRED FIFTY MILLION IDIOTS
A recent hearing sponsored by the Treasury and Labor Departments marked the beginning of the Obama Administration’s effort to nationalize the nation’s pension system and to eliminate private retirement accounts including IRA’s and 401k plans, NSC is warning.
This is the story of two very different American presidents and how they each answered their emergency Libyan phone calls.
First, the story of Ronald Reagan. When he got a call about trouble with Libya it was in August of 1981 and I happened to be having dinner with him and Nancy in Los Angeles.
We had just finished eating and were having coffee when Ed Meese phoned. Meese was my father’s top policy adviser, and there was a serious military crisis brewing in the Mediterranean.
Yesterday’s New York Times editorial: “A Big Storm Requires a Big Government“:Disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of “big government,” which is why Mitt Romneywants to eliminate it.
At a Republican primary debate last year, Mr. Romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. He not only agreed, he went further.”Absolutely,” he said.
The ongoing collapse of President Obama’s campaign may lead to some extraordinary stunts during Monday’s last debate, but no matter what he tries, it is very unlikely that the president can reverse the enormous momentum behind Mitt Romney‘s campaign.
(One data point. Congressman John Campbell, a frequent guest on my radio show, polled his district this week. It is Califronia‘s 45. John McCain carried it by 4.7 points in 2008. Mitt Romney is almost 20 points ahead in this cycle. Campbell reports that this sort of result is showing up across the country.)
The nation is simply finished with a president whose rhetoric has never been matched by his actions, and whose performance has removed Jimmy Carter from the bottom of the rankings of the modern president.
Mitt Romney on Wednesday night turned in the finest debate performance of any candidate of either party in the 52 years since Richard Nixon faced John F. Kennedy, with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan’s demolition of Jimmy Carter in 1980.
Sher Zieve: Romney v. Obama debates: What to watch from the Leftist “moderators” (“One thing still remains crystal-clear. If we don’t get rid of Obama, he will… “)
…..In fact, the media have become so prejudiced toward Obama and against Mitt Romney that even Pat Caddell (Democrat pollster who worked for both President Jimmy Carter (D) and Democrat candidate George McGovernamongst others) said of them:
“The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and decide that they will now become active participants, that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse — and this is the danger of the last two weeks — what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.”
Is it going to be another Reagan landslide, with Romney tossing out Obama like Jimmy Carter? Or is there a “shift of values” in Americans like Queen Elizabeth II discerned during the outpouring of emotion at the death of Princess Diana? Is it going to be the Romney/Ryan practicality, traditional values and common sense agenda that prevail? Or will the Obama/Biden pitch win out, that promises European socialism over American exceptionalism, green platitudes and ever increasing social spending without specifying who is going to pay for it? On both sides of the issues, there is a sense something big is in the balance.
Obama’s protective press cordon… (“A full day after the U.S. ambassador to Libya was brutally killed by a Muslim mob, another mob attacked Mitt Romney”)

Middle East Analysis: WWIII fuse has been lit… (“Simply put, we are being lied to. But it’s much deeper and much more sinister than a simple lie, and it’s not over yet. In fact, what we are seeing is just the beginning.”)
By Doug Hagmann Saturday, September 15, 2012
After extensive investigation and analysis of the events on September 11, 2012, in Libya and Egypt, there is only one conclusion I am able to reach: the official narrative of the details of these attacks, provided by U.S. officials and parroted by a complicit, unquestioning media, are being deliberately misrepresented with regard to what actually happened.
Simply put, we are being lied to. But it’s much deeper and much more sinister than a simple lie, and it’s not over yet. In fact, what we are seeing is just the beginning.
Since early Wednesday, I have received numerous e-mails asking why I have failed to report about the murder of a U.S. Ambassador and the other attacks at our embassy in Cairo.
Bachmann: ‘Obama Is the Most Dangerous President We Have Ever Had on American Foreign Policy’ (““And so now you see this media doing absolutely everything they can to scramble, to make sure that their guy doesn’t get the blame for what’s going down this week. It’s important to highlight the context of what got us to this point. It didn’t just happen out of nowhere,” Bachmann added.”)
“So let’s make sure that with everything within us, we lay it on the line in the next 50 days, because it is my belief and my opinion that Barack Obama has been the most dangerous president we have ever had on American foreign policy. And we cannot sustain another four years of Jimmy Carter-like policies,” she said at the summit, which is sponsored by the conservative pro-family group the Family Research Council.
Nero in the White House [From 8/8/2011]… (“He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”)
Three significant historical events have been eclipsed by Obama:
3 Clinton’s stain on Monica’s dress, and what that did to the White House in general and the office of the president specifically, will forever pale in comparison to the stain and stench of Obama.I need not spend much time on the failure of Obama as president. His tenure has been a failure on every measurable level.
So much so, in fact, that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and Democraticsupporters have not only openly criticized him – some even more harshly than this essayist – but they have called for him to step down.[snip]
Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed.
RUSH: We also have done something. It’s amazing, by the way, when you hear it, how similar Obama‘s speech last night was to Jimmy Carter‘s in 1980. It really is kind of stunning. We’ll do an A-B, side-by-side comparison and let you hear it. First we start in Fredon, New Jersey. Mark, great to have you. You’re up first on Open Line Friday. Hi.
I told my apolitical daughter I’d interviewed Michele Bachman the day before and asked if she knew who Bachmann is. My daughter thought for a second and said, “Yeah, that crazy lady.”
Who is Funding the $35M HI Estate for the Obamas’ Move Jan 2013?

Actual Title of Article from Hillbuzz (shortened for FR requirements): Who Is Funding the Purchase of the $35 million Beachfront Hawaiian Estate for Barack and Michelle Obama to Move into Come January 2013?
I’ve done some more digging here in Chicago on the story we brought you on Friday about plans currently underway to purchase a $35 million beachfront estate on the island of Oahu in a part of Hawaii called “Kailua” for the Obama family to move into in January 2013 when they leave the White House.
In recent days we learned that it is contemplating a platform plank that would endorse same-sex marriage, something that its core African-American voters detest. Maybe they are after the gay vote, but gays constitute barely three percent of the population and not all are Democrats.
Some VP Rumors and Convention Talk… (“If his heralded new majority for change does not triumph in congressional and state elections in 2012 or “)
Speaking of the veep business, Obama is out there, he whispered to some people yesterday
he thinks it’s gonna be Petraeus.
Yeah. And Drudge has run with this as the lead item, that it’s gonna be Petraeus as the veep.
Obama ran on a platform of unmitigated optimism — a promise to usher in a brighter day for America. But there could hardly be a greater contrast between his pledge and his performance in office, between his commitment to the nation and his current abandonment of all hope. He has breached his contract with the electorate and must be fired.
It isn’t just that Obama’s policies
have failed; it’s that he has essentially given up and is asking us to accept a lesser America going forward, as if resigned to the fatalistic belief that America has begun an inevitable and unavoidable decline.
Neil Barofsky, a lifetime Democrat, was picked by then-President George W. Bush (on the advise of his Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson) to police how the banks spent the $700 billion in TARP economic stimulus funds that should have helped the United States avert the recession that all Americans now suffer under. Testifying before the Senate Finance Committee on April 20, 2010, Barofsky said: “To declare TARP a success is revisionist history. TARP was supposed to restore lending, and that didn’t happen.”
Warren G. Harding was corrupt, as was Richard M. Nixon. Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy were like blind golfers, looking for a hole, any hole, every hole. Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were power-mad narcissists convinced they knew best how everyone else should live. Jimmy Carter was clueless. But as we approach the 100-year anniversary of the first of these men to serve as president, all have been lapped in debasing their office by its current occupant: Barack Obama.
“I think I figured out what CNN’s gonna do to try to recapture their lost glory,” Limbaugh said this afternoon on his top-rated program.
……….I’ll tell you something else Obama’s gonna want people to be distracted from. It is becoming apparent as we go through his book and read David Maraniss‘ book about his book, that this guy’s a fraud. That he’s literally made up his life story.
that book, this biography of Obama’s is all about these epiphanies on the road to racial understanding and self-realization and all that gobbledygook left-wing garbage. And at every one of these moments where Obama, as a young child, as a young man, as a growing adult, realizes that reality strikes him and his life is filled with greater understanding, and he moves forward and matures, every one of those events is fraudulent, made up.
There’s even a headline, I think it’s Investor’s Business Daily, asking “Is Obama a Pathological Liar?” So he’s gonna want people distracted from that. He’s gonna want people distracted from the executive privilege. But they’re warning Romney (muttering), “Don’t talk about this executive privilege, bud. You better stick with the economy.” He can do everything! We’ve got plenty of time here. It’s starting to fall apart for Obama. We’re getting closer and closer and closer to Jimmy Carter 2, almost verbatim.
Responding to Obama’s statement that the private sector was doing fine, he added: “Mr. President, I’ve got a message for you: The private sector is not doing well when 23 million Americans are unemployed and underemployed in this great country. This president, the private sector is so foreign to him he might need a passport to actually go visit and he might need a translator to help him talk to folks in the private sector.”
On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer called former President Bill Clinton a “double agent,” saying that Clinton is not doing President Barack Obama any favors.
Administration meltdowns are hardly novel. In almost every presidency there comes a moment when sheer chaos takes hold, whether self-induced or as a result of an outside crisis.
Vietnam had effectively destroyed Lyndon Johnson by 1967. Watergate unraveled the Richard Nixon administration, as the disgraced president resigned in the face of certain impeachment.
For a time, it seemed that Ronald Reagan’s second term might not survive the Iran-Contra scandal. George H.W. Bush could not be re-elected after he broke his promise not to raise taxes and Ross Perot entered the 1992 race.
SEE/Click Link Below….
In the last 100 years, every U.S. president who lost his bid for a second term did so because he abandoned his principal promise to the American people. If Republicans can persuade the public that Barack Obama similarly shattered the pledge at the very core of his presidency, they will succeed in denying him the new lease on the White House he insists he deserves.
Four elected chief executives in this century failed in their reelection campaigns—and each of them flopped by landslide margins. For William Howard Taft in 1912, Herbert Hoover in 1932, Jimmy Carter in 1980, and George H.W. Bush in 1992, broken promises doomed their chances for another four-year term.
Taft, Theodore Roosevelt’s hand-picked successor, based his first presidential campaign on guarantees that he would continue the popular policies of his ebullient predecessor, but voters in 1912 knew they’d been betrayed because TR himself came out of retirement to tell them so! Roosevelt not only challenged Taft for re-nomination but ultimately conducted his third-party “Bull Moose” campaign, handing victory to Democrat Woodrow Wilson and pushing the incumbent to a paltry 23 percent of the popular vote.
“The President just got in there. But in four years, will we still like him? In eight years, are we gonna still hype him? What if he says we’ve gotta go into Iran and kill a million people? Will you still be down with the man? You’d better wake up and smell the coffee.
This is why the radio station don’t toss me. Me–and I’m on the microphone–I stand with people like Alex Jones. This is the truth I’m down with. I’ve never been about no fuckin’ government. I do for myself; speak for myself. Teach myself; reach for myself. Hip hop, you gotta do the same thing. Listen to me now, while I rap and sing. The New World Order just put on a black face.” – KRS-One, January 24, 2009.
Obama has a PR advantage over his Republican rivals because he is a black President. A Black President doesn’t get criticized by the left because he is black. They think that a black president can’t be an evil imperialist in the same way as a white president. I think that is one of the political codes in politically correct Washington.
In American politics, ambitious black politicians use the race card like it is a magic card. And it is. Being black in power is a good image boost, which is why Obama was handpicked to be President by the oligarchy during this time of trial and transition.

When Obama bombs Persia, Obama’s Zombies Will Say: How can Obama be evil when he’s black? Black presidents don’t start evil wars. Only white presidents do that because the white man is the devil.
When Obama bombs Persia, the Whores of the Media Will Say: You cannot call a black President evil because that makes you evil and racist. You’re only allowed to call white Presidents evil. Okay? Got that, slaves? You morons. That’s an American rule in American politics. Do not call the black man in the White House an evil scumbag, do not say he loves wars and mass death, or we’ll call you a racist.
When Obama bombs Persia, the Brainwashed Left Will Say: Bush bombed the Iraqis because he was evil and wanted oil, but Obama is bombing the Persians because he’s good and he wants to create world peace. And how do I know he’s good? Well, because he’s black. Good is written on his face. If I say he’s evil then that makes me a racist. And I may be blind supporter of a lying war criminal, but I am not a racist! I am a good liberal who loves everybody and everything. And I love my president because he is black, which means I have shed my white guilt. And those who criticize him are all racists and conspiracy theorists!
Obama is clearly exploiting his color to sell to the American people inherently evil policies. And his defenders in the press constantly use the race card to demonize Obama’s critics. Read the following articles:
Fearing Gingrich, Both Sides Say He’s Unelectable
Posted on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 9:01:57 AM by jimluke01
What do establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats have in common? They’ve long labored under a shared misconception: conservative candidates are unelectable.
In 1980, conventional wisdom held that Ronald Reagan didn’t stand a chance against Jimmy Carter. The GOP leadership, the mainstream media and liberal politicos alike lined up against the Gipper in an attempt to derail his presidential campaign.
Rush Limbaugh recently addressed this phenomenon on his radio program: “Gerald Ford said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. George H.W. Bush said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. The entire Republican establishment thought Ronald Reagan was unelectable because they were governed and informed by the Goldwater landslide defeat. That’s what they think will happen to every conservative.”
That’s what they think will happen to Newt Gingrich.

Daily Bell: Give us some background on yourself and how you have come to your current success.
Gerald Celente: My background is such that after graduate school and I got my Masters in Public Administration, I started running political campaigns in Westchester County in New York, which is a very affluent area. I was very successful at it so they sent me up to Albany, where I became the assistant to the secretary of the New York State Senate; Albany, of course, is the capital of New York State. It was there that I really started learning about the political game. It was probably the worst job I ever had because it was watching grown men suck up and bow down all day to get to the top.
So from there I taught at St. John’s University and it was the nation’s first course in American politics and campaign technology – how to run a political campaign. From there I moved to Chicago and was a government affairs specialist for the chemical industry. I used to put together, when they were just being formed, political action committees. So I would hire the people, do the work to get legislation overturned or get different legislation passed. So I have been around the political scene long enough to have a good feel of it.
Then in the late 1970s it was that lightbulb moment, and Jimmy Carter had just come back from Iran. The Iranian conflict was heating up and, ironically, it is just heating up as we are speaking now. Not much has changed; only the names and players. So Carter comes back from spending New Year’s Eve with the Shah and his wife and announces that the Shah is the “Island of Stability” in the Middle East. At that moment I became a political atheist. I’d been following this thing for years. I knew how the United States government and the MI5 in the UK overthrew the democratically elected government of Mossaddegh in Iran, in 1953, because he had the NERVE to nationalize the oil fields, take it away from Anglo-Iranian oil – better known today as BP and Standard Oil, better known today as Exxon. So I knew also what a brutal dictator the Shah was and how he had imprisoned and slaughtered and tortured tens of thousands of people. So when a revolution broke out, I knew it was real and I knew that Carter was lying to the American people and the world……

Decorated military veteran and best-selling author Oliver North tells Newsmax that, with the recently announced cuts to the U.S. military, the Obama regime is looking like the “Jimmy Carter administration on steroids.”
North also asserts that President Obama’s efforts to deal with the growing Iranian threat have been an “abysmal failure” and warns that Israel will not “sit idly by and wait to be incinerated” by Iranian nuclear weapons.
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, North assesses the Iranian threat and the effectiveness of the sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies.
“Clearly the sanctions have not yet worked,” he declares.

American Spectator ^ | 1.11.12 | Peter Ferrara

And his economic policies would be warmed-over Bush Sr. and Dole.
In 1980, George H.W. Bush was making the same argument against Ronald Reagan that Mitt Romney is making this year. Bush argued that he was the most electable against Jimmy Carter. The big money Republican establishment was behind Bush because they feared that Reagan was too radical to win, and would carry the entire party down to historic defeat, like Goldwater did.
Reagan even lost Iowa to Bush on that argument. But Reagan carried forward the pro-growth, supply-side economic message that ultimately swept him to the nomination. That message then led to landslide victory in the fall, carrying the Republicans to control of the Senate, and effective control of the House.
