A conservative columnist-turned-author is calling on southern states to secede from the rest of the nation and form their own country, called Reagan.

Douglas MacKinnon, who served as a speechwriter for former President Reagan and former President George H.W. Bush, made a guest appearance on

“The Janet Mefferd Show” to promote his newly released, “The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values Country … Now,” Right Wing Watch first reported.

Obama is America’s first Hollywood presidentby LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

October 12, reagan salute L

In movies, handsome men and beautiful women speak eloquent words written by others and perform profound or heroic actions that they were never required to do in real life.Like a Hollywood fantasy, Obama’s is a make-believe presidency.

No one expects leadership from a celebrity and no one expects him to mean what he says.Obama is at his best on a stage set with human props in the background, reading from a teleprompter script to an audience of adoring fans.Like the son of a Hollywood mogul, Obama breezed through life with an Affirmative Action wind at his back. He was made President of the Harvard Law Review having never written a legal article, was an unremarkable Illinois state senator and made no impact on national events in his brief tenure as a US senator. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize based on rhetoric rather than accomplishment.Hollywood sign obama LMuch like the intellectual vacuity of Hollywood, Obama’s incompetence is camouflaged by the ignorant approval of naïve or ideological groupies and a fawning and uncritical media.

Unlike Obama, Ronald Reagan earned his success and demonstrated leadership throughout his career. He was elected both high school and college student body president. Reagan studied at Eureka College, a small Christian school near Peoria, on a half-tuition scholarship. He majored in economics and sociology, took part in dramatics, football, track and swimming.

After graduation, he worked as a sportscaster and signed a movie contract as a result of a screen test for a radio announcer role, while in California for the Chicago Cubs spring training.

Why the Right Thinks Obama’s a Narcissist—and Why They’re Wrong – The Daily Beast………..

September 19, 2014 1 comment

Now some on the right think Obama says ‘I’ too much. In fact, he doesn’t. But what does it mean that they can’t stand to hear him say it?

Charles Krauthammer has told Fox News that President Obama is a narcissist. And he should know, because once he was a psychologist.His evidence? Obama apparently says “I” too much.

He’s all into himself instead of the country he’s supposed to be running. “Count the number of times he uses ‘I’ in any speech, and compare that to any other president,” limns Doctor Krauthammer. “Remember when he announced the killing of Bin Laden?

That speech I believe had 29 references to ‘I’—on my command, I ordered, as Commander-in-Chief I was then told, I this.”But as linguist Mark Liberman notes at Language Log, the president used the word “I” exactly 10 times in that speech. Meanwhile, when Ronald Reagan made a speech in an analogous situation about Lebanon and Grenada, he used “I” exactly, um, 29 times.

Or are you now just rolling with the punches?Catherine the Great Karl’s better half is a student of history too. And she recalls from her studies of the Spanish Flu that elections were postponed during that outbreak.The November 2014 elections, only 49 days away, are cautiously predicted to be a Republican blow-out.

America Shouldn’t Choose Sides in Iraq’s Civil War

Obama has made mistakes but so did Bush by invading. There’s no good case for U.S. military intervention now.Though many claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan on foreign policy, too few look at how he really conducted it.

The Iraq war is one of the best examples of where we went wrong because we ignored that.In 1984, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger developed the following criteria for war, primarily to avoid another Vietnam.

The American Future … Pat Buchanan…–

At the end of the Cold War, Francis Fukuyama famously wrote that our world may be at the “end of history” where “Western liberal democracy” becomes “the final form of human government.”A quarter century on, such optimism seems naive.Consider the United States, the paragon of liberal democracy.An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll finds that only 14 percent of the people approve of Congress and only 19 percent approve of the GOP.

Seventy-one percent believe America is headed in the wrong direction.Nor is this the exceptional crisis of a particular presidency.JFK was assassinated. LBJ was broken by race riots and anti-war demonstrations.

Richardixon, facing impeachment, resigned. Gerald Ford


was rejected by the electorate. Ronald Reagan was highly successful — like Nixon, he won in a 49-state landslide after his first term — but during the Iran-Contra scandal of 1987 there was a real threat of a second impeachment.
