The Democrats’ War on the Two-Party System

March 4, 2014 2 comments

By Arnold Ahlert Tuesday, March 4, 2014

While conservatives are divided on the political path forward, Democrats are showing themselves to be united in a war against the Republican Party—with one-party rule for America as the endgame.

One need only look to the political priorities Democratic lawmakers have recently adopted to gauge this reality. Led by the Obama administration, a party hijacked by far-left radicals is determined to pass comprehensive immigration reform, prevent the passage of election integrity laws, and use the IRS as a billy club to suppress free speech.

Republican Leaders Approve America as a One-Party State | Politics

Republican Leaders Approve America as a One-Party State

By Ambrose Bierce’s Ghost

No longer capable of providing any effective opposition, Republican leaders and party consultants have agreed that the Democrats should assume permanent political control of the country.

At a June 25, 2013 White House meeting, originally announced as a foreign policy discussion, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) promised President Barack Obama that Republicans would offer only token resistance to all future legislation proposed by the Democrats. In return, Obama would permit the Republicans to remain a minority party in Congress, run candidates in certain Democrat-approved Congressional races and allow them to continue to raise money for losing Republican candidates through Karl Rove’s political action committees.

6 in 10 Americans Don’t See Anything Wrong With Mass Government Surveillance

National Journal ^ | June 10, 2013 | Brian Fung

The first polling on the National Security Agency surveillance leak is out, and despite almost unanimous cries of outrage from the press and civil-liberties advocates, the rest of America seems decidedly “meh” on the matter.

Majority Says the Federal Government Threatens Their Personal Rights

February 1, 2013 Leave a comment

As Barack Obama begins his second term in office, trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the first time, a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms.

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Jan. 9-13 among 1,502 adults, finds that 53% think that the federal government threatens their own personal rights and freedoms while 43% disagree.

 

In March 2010, opinions were divided over whether the government represented a threat to personal freedom; 47% said it did while 50% disagreed. In surveys between 1995 and 2003, majorities rejected the idea that the government threatened people’s rights and freedoms.

Indonesian Embassy Targeted: A Pattern Develops…

October 30, 2012 Leave a comment

A pattern may be developing. By now, everyone with a pulse should be intimately familiar with the tragedy in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The Obama Administration is embroiled in a scandalous cover-up born of an obsession to perpetuate a myth that al Qaeda and radical Islamic terror withered to an inconsequential “remnant” with the death of Osama bin Laden.

 

But within just the last week, at least two more plots to attack U.S. Embassies in Islamic countries have been uncovered. Thankfully, local intelligence interrupted these two attacks before they happened. Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans were not so fortunate.

Indonesian anti-terrorist police officials arrested 11 members of a new radical Islamic sect for plotting an attack on “domestic and foreign targets, including the U.S. Embassy and a site near the Australian Embassy,” reports Fox News.

 

“From evidence found at the scene, we believe that this group was well prepared for serious terror attacks,” according to Maj. Gen. Suhardi Alius, a spokesman for the Indonesian national police who made the arrests.

 

All are believed to be members of Harakah Sunni for Indonesian Society, HASMI. Officials suspect the group is affiliated with the larger and more established Jemaah Islamiyah, a South East Asian terror organization linked to al Qaeda with a long track record of bomb attacks.

Obama’s ‘problem is he was born a Muslim,’ Rev. FranklinGraham says

The influential Evangelical leader Rev. Franklin Graham said President Barack Obama was “born a Muslim” since the religion is “passed through the father’s seed,” in a CNN interview Friday.

Graham’s comments came in response to the recently released Pew Research Center survey that showed nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believed Obama was a Muslim.

 

Graham told CNN: “He was born a Muslim. His father was a Muslim; the seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother.

 

“He was born a Muslim; his father gave him an Islamic name,” the son of noted evangelist Billy Graham, said.

In pondering the coming unwhite America, it might be wise to consider how democracy will then work. In America we are accustomed to a rough balance of contending factions—liberals, conservatives, women, men, blacks, Hispanics, feminists, hawks, doves, and so on. Values overlap, emphases change. Elections are often determined by a few percentage points. Any group potentially can influence the outcome, so politicians have to pay attention to the desires of all groups.

Obama’s dangerous mistake: attacking religious freedoms

May 22, 2012 1 comment

America’s religious communities are fighting back against Barack Obama’s attack on our religious liberties. The first dozens lawsuits have been brought by Catholic entities against Obamacare’s regulation requiring them to provide contraception services in their employee health care coverage. This is just the beginning.

Since Obama started his war on religious freedoms he has driven faith guided voters from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. The politically lethal “contraception” mandate destroyed the Democrats in 2010 even before its violence to religious teachings was widely known.

Given the bumbling disjointed nature of the Republican Party it would be hard to credit the large shift of voter allegiance to the GOP to steps John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have taken. That leaves only one other possibility: Barack Obama himself.

Pew found that since 2008 White Evangelical Protestants under 30 have made a 15 point move to the Republican Party leaving them 82/13 Republican. Evangelicals over 30 have made a 4 point move to the Right and are now 69/25 Republican.

The election of Barack Obama ushered in the use of political networking that hadn’t been seen before.

Amazingly, the message failed to register in the minds of the Republican candidates vying for votes as nominees. Instead of recognizing the potential that the Obama campaign exploited, Republican contenders have been raising huge capital contributions to support traditional speaking engagements and TV ads.

Even more amazing has been the recognition by the youth in both the Arab spring and in the American Occupy campaigns to use the Obama network success.

If, as Marshall McLuhan believed, “The media is the message”, it becomes imperative to fully understand networking as media with a message, especially when it comes to politics in large numbers.

Divisive Convention Could Help GOP, Says Strategist

March 2, 2012 1 comment

Many Republicans shudder at the thought of a brokered national convention, but one of the GOP’s most accomplished political strategists believes it could improve the party’s chances of ousting President Obama.

“We need a donnybrook of a convention,” Stuart K. Spencer, a onetime key strategist for Ronald Reagan, told me this week. Spencer says that if neither Mitt Romney nor Rick Santorum goes to the Republican convention in Tampa with sufficient delegates to be nominated, their supporters might unite on an outsider nominee because they share the common goal of “beating Obama.”

To those who say that a contested convention would split the GOP, Spencer responds that the party is already badly divided and that the current candidates, even the relatively moderate Romney, have alienated independent voters.

There is some empirical evidence for that assertion. As late as January, the Pew Research Center found that Romney led Obama among independents by 10 percentage points…

NWV News – Voter Fraud: Research study suggests major election problems

February 23, 2012 Leave a comment

In a typical system, election officials get information about a voter’s identity, eligibility, address, and contact information through a form completed at a public agency, such as a county election office or motor vehicles office, or through an unregulated third party voter registration group, such as a campaign or advocacy organization (ACORN, Project Vote). – The Pew Center

A major non-partisan research project suggests that the U.S. is fast approaching the status of Third-World Nation when it comes to the integrity of local and national elections.

“Our democratic process requires an effective system for maintaining accurate voter registration information. Voter registration lists are used to assign precincts, send sample ballots, provide polling place information, identify and verify voters at polling places, and determine how resources, such as paper ballots and voting machines, are deployed on Election Day” state Pew Center statisticians.

Supercommittee Fight May Tell Us Whether the GOP Is Beyond Salvage

Townhall.com ^ | November 20, 2011 | Daniel J. Mitchell

Posted on Sunday, November 20, 2011 1:48:08 PM by Kaslin

Some people have asked why I’m so agitated about the possibility that Republicans may acquiesce to tax increases as part of the Supercommittee negotiations.

Rather than get into a lengthy discourse about the proper role of the federal government or an analysis of how the Bush-Obama spending binge worsened America’s fiscal situation, I think this chart from a previous post says it all.

Republicans are considering a surrender on taxes because they are afraid that a deadlock will lead to a sequester, which would mean automatic budget savings. And the sequester, according to these politicians, would “cut” the budget too severely.

But as the chart illustrates, that is utter nonsense.

Will Baby Boomers be the last generation to enjoy the modern concept of a leisure-filled retirement? It’s a worthy question to ponder in light of a new Pew Research Center report showing a growing wealth gap between young and old in the United States.

Using government data over the last 25 years, Pew found that households headed by those over 65 have made “dramatic gains” in economic well-being, while those headed by younger adults have fallen steadily behind.

Older Bloc of Voters Favoring the GOP?

NOV 4, 2011 • BY JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

While some of the Republican presidential candidates continue to focus almost exclusively on the economy, Politico writes, “Medicare-aged seniors could have the biggest impact on the 2012 elections — and that’s a bad sign for the person who just overhauled their health care, according to the LA Times.”

In a striking act of political brazenness, President Obama and the Democratic Congress decided to fund Obamacare through a roughly even mixture of tax hikes and reallocations of funds slated for Medicare. In all, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that $1.125 trillion would be siphoned out of Medicare and other related federal health programs and spent on Obamacare during the overhaul’s real first decade (2014 to 2023). Obama’s signature legislation also established the grisly Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), which would be charged with limiting Medicare spending in the future. In his budget do-over speech, Obama proposed to grant the IBAP even more power to cut Medicare spending (thereby, in his words, “further improving Medicare”).

The Los Angeles Times writes, “The U.S. heads into the 2012 presidential contest with a large generation gap in its politics — a rarity in American elections and one that, at least for now, has boosted prospects for a Republican victory, new [Pew Research Center] survey data show….Researchers divided the respondents into four age groups: millennials (ages 18 to 29), Generation X (30 to 46), baby boom (47 to 65) and the silent generation (66 to 83).”

Study Confirms Establishment is Terrified of Ron Paul

Figures prove Texan Congressman given least news coverage out of all Republican candidates

Monday, October 17, 2011

A new study by Pew Research Center confirms that the establishment is terrified of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign gaining momentum – figures show that despite his top tier showing in national polls, the Texan Congressman has received the least media coverage out of all the Republican candidates.

“Ron Paul loyalists have been vindicated. After months of observations that the mainstream media was ignoring the libertarian standard-bearer, a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism shows just that: the Texas Congressman, who has consistently polled in the high single digits — Real Clear Politics’s aggregate poll currently has him at 8 percent — has received the least overall coverage of any candidate.

From May 2 to October 9, Paul appeared as the “primary newsmaker in only 2% of all election stories,” reports the Atlantic Wire’s John Hudson.

The figures, compiled from a list of 52 of the top mainstream news sources encompassing newspapers, cable news, and broadcast television, show that even the likes of Tom Pawlenty, who quit his candidacy last month due to lack of support, and John Huntsman, have received significantly more mainstream press coverage than Paul.

It’s not just news coverage where Paul has been deliberately sidelined. A scientific study undertaken by the University of Minnesota also shows that Paul has been given the least speaking time out of all the candidates during the Republican debates so far.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t

Indeed, Mitt Romney has enjoyed more than double the amount of time afforded to Ron Paul over the course of the last three debates.

Of course, this only confirms what we already knew after CNN talking heads admitted there was a media policy to deliberately ignore Ron Paul, even after he placed second in the influential Ames straw poll back in August.

These figures really bring to the fore how the establishment is terrified of Ron Paul’s campaign gaining traction. Paul routinely wins straw polls and habitually places second, third or fourth in national polls. He is a top tier candidate despite being almost completely ignored by the mainstream media. Imagine what his numbers would be if he was given merely double the amount of attention he currently receives, which still would barely touch that afforded to the likes of Romney or Perry.

If Ron Paul was allowed to compete on a level playing field, he would trounce all the other candidates and go on to defeat Obama by a landslide. Polls show that Paul would already narrowly defeat Obama in a hypothetical run-off despite the media campaign to blacklist him.

These statistics once again highlight how grass roots alternative media organizations need to pick up the baton and preach Ron Paul’s message of liberty to the general public, because they’re not even going to be informed of Ron Paul’s existence by the corporate media, never mind what his campaign stands for.

Internet Hits All-Time High as News Source, TV at All-Time Low, Says Pew

September 26, 2011 Leave a comment

The Internet has risen to its all-time high as a primary source of news for Americans with 43 percent now saying they get most of their news on national and international issues from the web, according to a survey published Thursday by the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press.

Meanwhile, television sits at an all-time low as a primary source of news for Americans with only 66 percent now saying they get most of their national and international news from TV–a nadir television also hit in December 2010.

Since 1991, Pew has periodically asked Americans: “How do you get most of your news about national and international issues?”

* A d v e r t i s e m e n t

In this survey, respondents are allowed to give up to two answers. (So, a person can cite both television and the Internet, or television and radio, or newspapers and television, etc., as the places where they get most of their news–and the combined percentages for the various sources can add up to more than 100 percent).

In the two decades Pew has been tracking this trend in American news sources, television peaked as the primary source of news for Americans at the time s of the September 2001 terrorist attacks, when 90 percent said they got most of their news from TV. Television nearly returned to that level in March 2003, during the invasion of Iraq, and September 2005, during Hurricane Katrina. At both those times, 89 percent said they got most of their national and international news from TV.

Marco Rubio’s Courageous Speech

September 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Florida’s young Republican Senator Marco Rubio gave an important speech at the Reagan Presidential Library in California that has set off the liberal talking head universe.

He had the temerity to suggest that the huge growth in government’s role in American life over the last century “actually weakened us as a people.”

The resulting onslaught from liberal blogs and cable hosts comes as no surprise because Rubio directly took on the idol at which liberals worship – Big Government.

But his analysis was courageous and profound.

Eighty percent of Americans are not happy with the direction of the country. And, new Gallup polling shows that only 17 percent are positively disposed toward the federal government.

Americans want answers.

Senator Rubio, in this speech, stepped up to the plate to provide answers.

If liberals disagree, they are going to have to get equally serious. They’ve certainly got to do better than MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, calling Rubio “a political hack” who wants “to get rid of social safety nets.”

Our fiscal crisis is undeniable. The trillions in debt we’ve taken on to finance massive government spending has resulted in the unthinkable downgrading in rating of our government’s bonds.

But Senator Rubio took a bold step beyond looking at our problems just as an accountant.

He suggested that we cannot separate our budget from our culture. The culture of government has displaced the culture of personal responsibility.

I have been making the point for years regarding what the welfare state culture has done in our black communities. How it has created a permanent underclass, defined by family breakdown, sexual promiscuity, disease, and crime.

American culture has changed profoundly over these years that Americans have come to increasingly believe that government social engineering can solve life’s problems and challenges.

A snapshot of today’s American family shows how much things have changed, even compared to 1981 when President Reagan took office.

Since 1980, the percentage of babies in America born to unwed mothers has doubled, from 20 percent to 40 percent.

Fifty two percent of Americans over the age of 18 are married today, compared to 72 percent in 1960.

Among blacks, 44% of the population over 18 has never been married, compared to 17% in 1960.

Sixty four percent of American children today live in a home with two married parents, compared with 75 percent in 1980 and 87 percent in 1960.

And, according to the Pew Research Center, 44 percent of those between ages of 18 to 29 “agree marriage is becoming obsolete.”

We used to be a nation, as Senator Rubio pointed out, where parents raised and cared for children, then those children cared for their aging parents. Where neighbors cared for neighbors.

We might note that the welfare state idea is not an American invention but an import from Europe. We also might note that about 20 percent of Europeans attend church regularly, half that of Americans.

Europe is characterized today by low birth rates – so low that they are not replacing themselves – and high unemployment rates. The unemployment rate in France has hovered between 8 and 11 percent over the last 25 years.

We must wonder if even we can take on our fiscal problems, if traditional American family life can be restored, and if we believe it even matters.

It is to Senator Rubio’s considerable credit that he has stood up to argue that we must look at the picture of our nation in its entirety. That we cannot separate our budget matters and our attitude toward government from our overall culture and our personal behavior.

What is before us today is not a battle of competing numbers but a battle of competing visions.

Is America to continue in the direction of welfare state materialism? Or will this be a free nation under God?

Poll stunner: These American blacks OK with violent attacks

September 2, 2011 Leave a comment

The most dangerous Muslims in America may be black converts to Islam, according to a shocking new poll by the Pew Research Center.

African-American Muslims tend to hold the most violent views among U.S. Muslims surveyed by Pew in a poll released this week.

Fully 28 percent of U.S.-born black Muslim respondents said “suicide bombings and other violence against civilians” can be justified sometimes or at least in rare cases. That compares with 9 percent of foreign-born Muslims who hold the same view.

Pew also found that 11 percent of black Muslims living in the U.S. have a favorable opinion of al-Qaida – more than double the share of U.S. Muslims overall who hold that view. Another 21 percent of black Muslims hold only mildly unfavorable views of the terrorist organization responsible for attacking America 10 years ago; while 56 percent of that segment of the Muslim population hold very unfavorable views.

Get “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” autographed, from WND‘s Superstore

The survey results are troubling, because U.S. officials say al-Qaida in recent years has stepped up its efforts to recruit African-Americans to target the homeland for terrorist attacks. English-speaking blacks do not fit the prevailing Middle Eastern terrorist profile, officials say, and al-Qaida recruiters believe they have a better chance of slipping through security checkpoints.

A growing number of black converts have been radicalized in prison or by jihadist websites, officials say.

EDITORIAL: America abandons Obama

July 30, 2011 Leave a comment

So much for hope and change. With the economy growing worse and worse, the grand promises of Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign have faded as the reality of malaise takes hold.

Mr. Obama has vowed to spend $1 billion in advertising dollars to counteract the effect his policies have had on the nation. The GOP’s campaign chief met with The Washington Times on Friday to discuss why that’s not going to work. “I think this [election] is a referendum on Barack Obama,” said Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus. “The people in this country are going to ask themselves a question: ‘Am I better off than I was three or four years ago?’ And the answer is clearly no.”

Even liberals feel betrayed on a number of pet causes like torture and Guantanamo Bay, and they’re jumping ship. The Pew Research Center found Republicans were making huge gains among white voters. In 2008, 46 percent of this demographic group sided with the GOP while 44 percent preferred Democrats. Today, the Republican advantage has grown to 13 points, with the biggest gains found among those under the age of 30.

In other words, the young voters who once identified with the youthful, relatively unknown senator from Illinois are having a severe case of buyer’s remorse. The survey showed Republicans also made a small 2 percent gain among black voters, but larger inroads ought to be possible given the astonishing figure that 16.2 percent of blacks can’t find a job in Mr. Obama’s economy – double the figure for whites. “People are hurting,” said Mr. Priebus. “The problem that Obama has is that he has had results of his presidency, and these results are awful and people know it.”

Candidate Obama Secures The Vote Of Undocumented Democrats

Human Events ^ | 05/13/2011 | Roger Hedgecock

Posted on Saturday, May 14, 2011 10:27:51 AM by PSYCHO-FREEP

Presidential candidate Barack Obama, seeking the Democratic Party nomination in 2012, stumped for the illegal alien vote in El Paso, Tex., this week, urging Congress to pass an amnesty bill and hitting Republicans for wanting to build a moat at the border and fill it with alligators.

Obama’s signature soaring rhetoric extolled the beneficial impact of immigration throughout the history of the United States, citing Einstein and I. M. Pei, and the immigrant founders of Google, Yahoo, Intel, and eBay, smoothly blending the importance of these legal immigrants with the tidal wave of illegals swamping the country’s social safety net, prisons, and schools.

After the inspiring reminder of what America owes to past (legal) immigrants, came the trademark slam, the Alinsky left hook. “At times, there has been fear and resentment directed toward newcomers.” Translation: Enforcing immigration law is racist.

Then candidate Obama shot a right hook. Apparently aware of the Pew Research Center polling that shows Democrats more split on illegal alien amnesty than Republicans, the candidate pivoted to explain that he himself had enforced immigration law, built the border fence, and cracked down on employers exploiting illegal labor.

Obama also bluntly acknowledged that illegals have been known to break the law, and if so should pay a fine and any back taxes, “learn English” and “undergo background checks” before being allowed to become citizens.

Why has President Barack Obama on at least two occasions told specifically Muslim audiences that America is a nation of — among other things — “non-believers”?The Pledge of Allegiance says America is one nation under God, our national motto says in God we trust, the Declaration of Independence says we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights and since the time of George Washington our presidents have placed their left hands on the Bible as they raise their right hands and swear to defend our Constitution.The Census Bureau’s official Statistical Abstract of the United States says a miniscule 0.7 percent of American adults — or 1,621,000 out of 228,182,000 — are atheists.If you accept the Pew Hispanic Center‘s March 2005 estimate that there were 11 million illegal aliens in the United States back then — and assume for the sake of argument there are still roughly that many today after another half decade of unsecured borders — then a person randomly passing you on an American street is about seven times more likely to be a foreign national illegally residing here than an atheist.If representation in the resident population is the measure, than it is more plausible to say America is a nation of foreigners than to say America is a nation of non-believers.Yet President Obama has virtually made a mantra of saying that Americans are, among other things, “non-believers.”

Is the man in this picture he whom we know as “Barack Hussein Obama II,” or is it of someone else?

Aug. 24, 2010 —

In 2007, a well-known expert on the Middle East and Islam asked the question, “Was Barack Obama a Muslim?”Now, according to The Washington Post, close to one in five Americans believe he is, despite The Post’s unsubstantiated denial of it. The Christian Science Monitor also is participating in a campaign of disinformation, calling people “misinformed” in regard to the same recent poll. In a stunning display of propaganda and editorializing masquerading as journalism, CSM “staff writer” Peter Grier states:Washington — Wow – a substantial and growing number of Americans believe President Obama is Muslim.

That’s what a new Pew Research Center poll says, anyway.Fully 18 percent of respondents to the Pew survey picked “Muslim” when asked Obama’s religion, up from 11 percent who answered that way in March 2009.Where are Americans getting their information about Obama’s religion? We ask that because, on this subject, a substantial and growing number of them are wrong. Obama is Christian. We’ll say that up front, in case some of you are hazy on this point yourselves.

Barack Obama: Christian In Name Only CINO?

By John Lillpop Friday, August 20, 2010

Barack Obama’s naive statements on the Ground Zero mosque have brought new energy to the debate over his religious affiliations.Yahoonews.com reports, in part, that nearly one in five Americans believe that Obama is Muslim: Ref 1

“Nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believe President Obama is Muslim, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. That total, 18 percent, is up from 11 percent in Pew’s March 2009 survey. “While the view that Obama is Muslim is more widespread among those who identify as Obama’s ideological opponents, the survey found that a growing number of independents also believe the myth, up 8 percent from 2009.”

Note that the word “incorrectly” as used in the Yahoo.news story is not necessarily true.Consider Obama’s actions since 1/20/09: Immediately called for shut down of GITMO Called for terrorists to be tried by civilian juries, rather than military, including Miranda rights and other rights conferred on citizens. Once in office, rushed off to a Muslim nation to deliver a speech in which he declared that America is “not” a Christian nation. Changed policy toward Israel such that that nation is treated like a gang of terrorists.

Supports, or at least does not oppose, the mosque at Ground Zero.
