“Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?”

19 Mar

 

Very smart piece piece by Bristol Palin (politically speaking).  After the recent firestorm over Rush Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke, which led to President Obama calling her personally (you know, because he thought about his two daughters and wouldn’t want anyone speaking about them that way), Conservatives are fighting back, calling out Democrats for their double standard.  Here is an excerpt from this piece:

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.  After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager.  That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you.  Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women.  You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.

This approach has proven to be effective lately.  Obama’s right-hand man David Axelrod has cancelled his scheduled appearance on Bill Maher’s show,  the Alabama Democratic Party has scrubbed a web page advertising its upcoming fundraiser with HBO’s Bill Maher, and Louis C.K. has dropped out of hosting the Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner.

I think that it is safe to say that this issue has backfired on Democrats.  They have tolerated misogynistic, mean-spirited attacks on Conservative women for years.  Good to see them finally called on it.

Obama’s objective: polarize our country along class lines

12 Oct

 

 

 

Apparently, it has been Obama’s objective all along.  To divide and polarize our country along class lines.  He’s doing a good job.

Stanley Kurtz is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in D.C.  He is also a writer for National Review author of Radical-in-Chief:  Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.  Last year, he was interviewed by Rush Limbaugh for an edition of the Limbaugh Letter and the topic was Obama and his intentional plans to polarize the country between Democrats and Republicans along class lines.  His predictions for what Obama had in mind are eerily similar to what is happening today.  The entire interview can be found here: RushLimbaughInterviewsStanleyKurtz.

From Kurtz:  (Emphasis mine)

The idea was to polarize the country between the Democrats and Republicans along class lines.  How do you do that?  First you attack business interests and literally drive them out of the Democratic Party and into the Republican Party.  Now that might sound crazy.  Why would you want to drive anyone out of your party?  But by attacking business interests – and of course we’ve seen what Obama did with the Chamber of Commerce, his attacks on fat cats, his attacks on the Supreme Court during the State of the Union address over the campaign finance issue – the theory is, you jump-start this populist anti-business movement of the left.  And those people pour into the Democratic Party.  The idea of Obama’s socialist mentors was that if you can polarize the parties almost completely along class lines, the Party of the have-nots, in this case the Democrats, will gradually drift further and further towards socialism.  So that’s why you see Obama talking about enemies, because that also activates another key part of the coalition:  the theory is that you bring in activated minority groups and ally them with the anti-business populists.  All of his attack techniques are efforts to jump-start this populist movement of the left.”

Sounds like Mr. Kurtz pretty much nailed it a year ago.  This is exactly what is going on now, from the Occupy Wall St. protests, to the attacks on banks, CEOs, corporations and the private sector.  It’s been Obama’s plan all along.

Stanley Kurtz has had Obama pegged since before he got elected.  He did an interview for the Limbaugh Letter back in 2008, with Obama and his ties to radicalism and socialism the topic.  He also talks extensively about Obama’s close relationship with radical socialist Bill Ayers.  In it he stated:

“You see, people like Bill Ayers see the troubles of the inner city as a great opportunity to stoke this revolution.  What do these community organizers do?  This goes back to Saul Alinsky.  They agitate.  They try to get people angry at their condition.  So what Ayers and his compatriots believe is that, rather than trying to make people in the inner city a part of the general American success story, you use the dissatisfactions and troubles of the inner city as the spark point of the revolution that they still want to see.”

Not only is Obama comfortable with the polarization and unrest that is going on in our country, he prefers it.

Gov. Chris Christie vs. Entitlement Mentality

29 Mar

 

Rush Limbaugh chimed in on his show:

RUSH:  Last night in Trenton, New Jersey, Chris Christie appeared on the radio, Ask the Governor show, and he spoke with a caller Penny in Blackwood.  She said, “I would like to know why you want to take at least 13% out of state employees’ pay for health care.  Between what my husband and I make, you’re talking about $600 a month out of our money which is gonna cut into our food and our other bills.  How do you expect us to live, governor?”

CHRISTIE:  How I expect you to live, Penny, is you’re gonna have to pick a different health plan that’s not nearly as rich as the one you’re getting now.  That’s how.

PENNY:  Either that or you’re force us to not have any health care.

CHRISTIE:  No, I’m not gonna force you to not have any health care.  I don’t think that means forcing you to go without health care.  But what it means is we can no longer afford to pay 90 plus percent of the cost of your health care.  Public workers are getting their health insurance paid for out of your property taxes, and state workers are getting their health insurance paid for out of your income taxes.  If I’m $67 billion in debt and you don’t want me to take any more money out of your paycheck, how am I supposed to pay for it?  Am I supposed to just raise taxes?  Because if I raise taxes you’re gonna pay more taxes, and if your property taxes go up, you’re going to pay more taxes.  I mean the money’s gotta come from somewhere.  We can’t print it.

The sense of entitlement from public employee unions is amazing.  They can’t believe that someone actually expects them to pay for their own health care.  How dare they?  The government (taxpayers) pays for over 90% of their health care and it’s still not enough.

Chris Christie explains how teachers are claiming that by asking them (of all people) to pay 1 ½% of their salary to pay for their health benefits is “the greatest assault on public education in the history of New Jersey.”
