CLOSE TO A PUFF PIECE ON BIDEN:An FDR/LBJ mold politician, Biden's problem, like theirs, results from having no experience except as a politician. He is also a demogogue (goes with his type of politician), and a blowhard. Apart from that he's a good guy, probably.. Worst of all, he probably believes his own liberal b.s.



MSNBC Caller Sheds New Light on Malaysian Airlines Flight Shot Down Over Ukraine

If you ever find yourself with absolutely nothing else to do, watch MSNBC’s The Cycle, featuring a conspicuously slow-witted woman who calls herself Krystal Ball. You will get a whole new perspective on the news — if not from the Krystal, then from her callers:
Ms. Ball has distinguished herself in the past by proclaiming that George Orwell’s Animal Farm, which decries the tyranny of socialism, is actually anti-capitalist, and by coaxing her own daughter to publicly endorse homosexuality at about age 5.
Incredibly, Krystal ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2010 and managed to lose. She ought to try again. The country is ready for her now, the last barriers to grotesquely inappropriate candidates having been swept away by Obama’s reelection.

ROOT OF RACISM:  This item reflects the poisonous atmosphere in this country fostered by the race hustlers Jackson and Sharpton as well as the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Eric Holder and chief hustler of all, B. Obama.  It is safe to say race relations have never been worse in this country since the 1960's and what's more the plight of the blacks has probably never been worse n the same time frame.  Generations of blacks have been alienated from the larger community by all these people and groups living high on the hog by stirring racial animosity and what's worse, getting away with it all largely because of "white guilt".  Eric Holder said we are a nation of "cowards" because we won't confront racism, or at least have a discussion about it.  Wrong.  We are a nation of cowards because we are afraid to have a discussion about racism knowing it will lead to finger pointing and accusations by the black leadership in order to push their agenda of black dependency on government programs, largess and payoffs to them that whites are repressing blacks.  Unfortunately the well of good will has been poisoned to the point there is no future in open discussions on this subject between whites and blacks.  Blacks have refused to take responsibility for the collapse of the black family unit, have shown no willingness to educate themselves and all the rest associated with a dysfunctional racial minority.  They should take a hard look at the success of Asian minorities to see how it's done.  The black race in this country, with many individual exceptions, is a failed minority with little or no prospects for the future.  Meanwhile they are causing most of the dysfunction in the larger society by constant claims of racism as an excuse for their failure.

Jesse Jackson Finally Makes A Statement About White Motorist Beating

Jesse Jackson knows racism. It’s his job. He’s so good at spotting it that he can find it where others would not. The one knock on him is not that he sees things in black and white but rather just in black. The champion of racial injustice has taken considerable flak for ignoring the horrible hate crime in Detroit where white motorist Steven Utash was beaten nearly to death a group of black thugs.
Where the races reversed in this case, Jackson surely would have condemned the attackers, but for two weeks now, he has been silent. Social media and the blogosphere have lit up calling Jackson a hypocrite. After all, a hate crime is no less abhorrent if the victim happens to be white. With his credibility on the line, Jackson finally broke his silence this week, saying in a phone interview:
It was an act of meanness and evil that must be handled. What they did was wrong. I know it was morally wrong. There’s ignorance based in knowledge. That’s why you have to pull the walls down and live together. Our climate is so racially charged… It’s a product of the sickness of culture.
Not only can’t he bring himself to call this a hate crime, he excuses the attackers from any culpability. You see, it’s not their fault they beat an innocent man into a coma because will live in a sick racist society. What an asshole.
And what’s with that line: there’s ignorance based in knowledge? What the hell does that mean? Having knowledge is the opposite of being ignorant. Does he have a dictionary app set to shuffle that just spews out random words for him to string together?
This “condemnation” gets even worse as Jackson tries to take all of the attention away from the victim and focuses on the black woman that intervened and saved Mr. Utash from the thugs. Don’t get me wrong, Deborah Hughes is a hero for stopping the attack and deserves much praise, but she’s hardly the important person in this story.
Jesse sees it differently. Never mind that white guy that got severely beaten, Jackson says he wants to reach out to Ms. Hughes and her family. In essence, he wants to make this less about a white guy being assaulted because of the color of his skin and more about a brave black woman that stood up to some criminals. What an asshole. Oh wait, I already said that.
And the reason why Jackson took so long to give this non-response to a high-profile racial attack? According to him, he was at a conference in Japan. That explains it all because there are no phones or Internet in Japan, right? He was so busy giving the Japanese crap for being too Asian that he couldn’t make a brief statement. Sounds plausible to me.
Personally, I don’t think being a media whore on matters of race should be a profession, but if that’s your job; do it right. Be consistent. Don’t be a hypocrite. Racism is racism. Hate is hate. Skin color is not a requirement for victimization.
DENISH D'SOUZA'S NEW MOVIE A HOMERUN:  D'Souza exposed Obama as a fraud in one movie, now exposes the left as a fraud in another.



SO LAST YEAR I HAD DINNER IN NEW YORK with an InstaPundit reader who’s a big donor to libertarian causes, and he asked me where he should be steering his money. Because I somehow failed to mention the obvious InstaPundit Private Jet Account,I instead suggested that he put some money into lawfare. Lefties are really good at it, but the right does much less, meaning that there’s a lot of low-hanging fruit. Groups like the Institute For Justice, FIRE, Landmark Legal, etc. do good work, but they’re vastly outnumbered by similar groups on the left. Now here’s a passage from Kurt Schlichter’s Conservative Insurgency, a sort of World War Z-style oral future history, on just that subject:
We started calling it “conservative lawfare,” and it drove the progressives nuts. What made them so vulnerable was not only the dubious legal grounds of their actions but their manifest pettiness and unfairness. You see, lawfare — as progressives themselves used to understand — was not just about winning on the merits of a particular lawsuit. It was theater — it highlighted and put in front of the public these big government actions that could not be swept under a rug. You got to court, and unless you dismiss the case following a settlement, the court has to rule one way or another. Something has to happen.
Most Americans are generally fair-minded, and they saw how essentially unfair many of these government actions were. And when the progressives doubled down — which they always did — they looked awful. It was not always a matter of winning or losing the case itself. We lost a lot of cases . . . . But what really mattered, what really helped the movement, was showing the injustice of progressivism. Lawfare let us do that . . . .
We call that “shaping the battlefield.” You look for where and when you have the edge, and then you make the enemy fight you there and then. That’s especially important for insurgents. Our conservative lawyers understood that instinctively. . . . I threw money at lawyers because we could win in court. We wanted to get the government and the progressives in court because that took away all their advantages. I was a big proponent of lawfare right from the beginning because I saw that was where we could draw blood. I funded a lot of lawyers. There was a glut of them, and I could get them cheap so I found some talented ones and created a public interest law firm. . . . It was great. No case was too big or too small. The government was constantly having to get up and publicly defend its nonsense. Win or lose, we won. . . . I used to say that conservatives had to harness the power of lawyers for good instead of evil. The left had been using the courts for generations to chip away at our Constitution; we needed to use it to rebuild our rights and our freedoms. And, along the way, to give the progressives fits.
Like I said, there’s a lot of low-hanging fruit out there, waiting to be taken advantage of. And, by the way, Schlichter sees a libertarian/conservative alliance as the key to success. I think that’s right.

The greatest conspiracy in world history is being carried out by the real-life “Manchurian Candidate”: President Barack Obama.

My definition of a “Manchurian Candidate” is a person who hates everything America stands for and whose goal is to win the presidency for the express purpose of destroying the greatest nation, the greatest economic system, and the greatest middle class in world history. That, my friends, describes Obama. I’m not basing it on rumors or innuendo. I’m basing it on the facts.
I know liberals hate facts, but bear with me. So here are a few, which I lay out more fully in my new book, The Murder of the Middle Class:
China is set to pass the United States as the world’s largest economy (based on consumer spending). This year. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the number 1 economy in world.
For the first time in history America’s middle class isn’t the richest in the world. Canada’s middle class has passed us.
For the first time in American history more businesses are closing each day than they are starting.
More Americans now receive entitlements than work full-time.
There are now 70 percent more Americans collecting entitlement checks than working in the private sector (148 million “takers” vs. 86 million “makers”).
The average full-time male employee now earns less (adjusted for inflation) than he did forty years ago.
Twenty percent of U.S. families don’t have a single member who is employed.
The number of working age Americans without a job increased by about ten million in Obama’s first five years as president. Every year of Obama’s presidency, two million more Americans disappeared from the workforce.
Sixty percent of the jobs lost were middle-class jobs. But only 22 percent of the new jobs are middle-class jobs with decent wages.
America’s second-largest employer is a temp agency.
Seventy percent of Americans believe we are still in the middle of the economic crisis or that the worst is yet to come.
If Obama isn’t the Manchurian Candidate, he certainly plays the part well. Consider the evidence:
Who trades five jihadist mass murderers for one deserter?
Who releases 36,000 illegal alien felons into the population?
Who slows deportations of illegal alien youth, thereby convincing tens of thousands more to cross our border illegally and create a massive crisis?
Who advertises U.S. food stamps in Mexico for illegal aliens?
Who proposes 442 new taxes in only six years?
Who adds $7 trillion in new debt in only six years?
Who strangles business with tens of thousands of new regulations and adds thousands of dollars to middle-class American’s energy bills?
Who promises “your health premiums will go down, and if you like your insurance, you can keep it?”—knowing all the while that up to 80 percent of small business employees will lose their insurance, as will up to 60 percent of all employees, and that health insurance premiums will skyrocket?
Who uses NSA to spy on the conversations of ordinary Americans?
Who uses the IRS to attack political opponents, while turning a blind eye to illegal aliens getting billions of dollars in fraudulent tax credits?
Who spends $300 million on mortgages for Palestinians while allowing vets to die on phantom waiting lists for a doctor?
Who orders the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to sue American companies for demanding English as the language of the workplace?
Who bans Christmas cards from veterans’ hospitals if the word “God” is included?
Who bans the word “Christmas” from military bases?
Who demands Miranda rights be extended to a mass-murdering Jihadist but allows a heroic U.S. Marine to be tortured in a Mexican prison?
Obama may have been born in America, but his thinking and actions are un-American.
Yes my fellow patriotic Americans, I’m sad to report we have a “Manchurian Candidate” president.
