I Have An Idea Putin Will Love!

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/08/28

Putin has this idea that he can invade sovereign nations that have Russian speakers if those Russian speakers are “threatened.” Sounds very Hitleresque, don’t ya think? Even Stalinesque, as Hitler and Stalin agreed to sub-divide Poland before Hitler decided to kill Russians.

In addition to stipulations of non-aggression, the treaty included a secret protocol that divided territories of Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland into Nazi and Soviet “spheres of influence“, anticipating potential “territorial and political rearrangements” of these countries. Thereafter, Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939. After the Soviet-Japanese ceasefire agreement took effect on 16 September, Stalin ordered his own invasion of Poland on 17 September.[3] Part of southeastern (Karelia) and Salla region in Finland were annexed by the Soviet Union after the Winter War. This was followed by Soviet annexations of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and parts of Romania (Bessarabia, Northern Bukovina and the Hertza region).

The pact remained in force until the German government broke it by invading the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941.

Of the territories of Poland annexed by the Soviet Union between 1939 and 1940, the region around Białystok and a minor part of Galicia east of the San river around Przemyśl were the only ones returned to the Polish state at the end of World War II. Of all other territories annexed by the USSR in 1939–40, the ones detached from Finland (Karelia, Petsamo), Estonia (Ingrian area and Petseri County) and Latvia (Abrene) remained part of the Russian Federation, the successor state of the Soviet Union, after 1991. Northern Bukovina, Southern Bessarabia and Hertza remain part of Ukraine.

I know that’s a wiki source, and it only a little more trustable than a Leftist, but it is a source that provides other sources (eventually), and everyone knows by now Communist Russia (hello, Putin and American Leftists) and National Socialist Germany (hello, neo-Nazis and American Leftists) divvied up eastern Europe before Germany invaded Poland, and that’s why Germany deemed it safe to invade Poland to begin with. Also note how Communist Russia had an officer-depleted military due to Stalin purges. Anyone else see anything familiar happening now? (Hello, Obama, you formerly official member of Socialists in the US.) Here’s an article from The History Channel (and it is still less than honest in favor of a Leftist retelling of history).

The former KGB agent who is trying to reconstitute the old Soviet Union, with whom Hillary Clinton had that horrendously failed “RESET BUTTON” and to whom the formerly official and still Socialist Barack Obama (link, link, link) said he will have more flexibility, has decided any who “speak Russian” are reasons to invade sovereign nations. So, once we throw the known Socialist out of office and put a patriot in office, maybe we can declare any English speaker who is “threatened” gives the US reason enough to invade Socialist and Islamist nations. Vladimir Putin, the former KGB Colonel, has given us precedents (as opposed to precedence (a singular term)).

2012 Presidential Election Results As They Come In

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/06

UPDATE 10:18PM TEXAS TIME, FOX NEWS CALLS THE RACE FOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

FIRST PRESIDENT IN 96 YEARS TO WIN A SECOND TERM WHILE SHEDDING ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES

Welcome to Truth Before Dishonor’s version of live-blogging the 2012 Presidential election. As a reminder, here’s how the 2008 elections turned out (via US Election Atlas.org).

Note the Republican states are in blue and the Democrat states are in red. Republicans were not always red and Democrats were not always blue. It wasn’t until someone on MSNBC decided to employ some psychological propaganda that the colors were set in that way. As I noted in my Obama Wins 2008, In All Likelihood Loses 2012 article, it is my plan that Republicans and Democrats revert back to their appropriate colors.

This is set to be a long day of poll-watching from home. Stay tuned for the updates, and may Providence guide the election results.

UPDATE 8:00am Texas time: The longest day of 2012 has barely begun and we already have vote fraud allegations.

UPDATE 8:15am Texas time: It’s already old news, but the first official counts are in, with Barack Obama taking a commanding lead. Dixville Notch, NH and Hart’s Location, NH have opened and closed their precincts.

Obama Wins 2008, In All Likelihood Loses 2012

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/01

Below are the 2008 election results from US Election Atlas.org.

Note the Republican states are in blue while the Democrat states are in red. Republicans being red and Democrats being blue wasn’t always the case. Not until those folks at MSNBC switched it around (for propaganda benefits, since red is the color of Leftism and Communism and Socialism). It is my goal that here, at Truth Before Dishonor, the Democrats are once again reverted back to being red and the Republicans are once again reverted back to being blue. Because it is far more in keeping with the Truth about their respective political leanings.

Below is the 270 To Win Battleground States map (with my adjustments for Republican and Democrat. The Battleground states are unchanged.)

Compare the two maps. (singing)Do you see what I see?(/singing) That’s right, folks. Every Republican state in 2008 is Republican in 2012. Every Battleground state was Democrat in 2008. And Indiana, which was Democrat in 2008, with less than 50 percent of the vote (despite Obama having an ACORN-led 105 percent Registered Voter vs Adult Resident advantage in Indianapolis in 2008), is Republican in 2012.

The charts show what everyone in the know has known to be true: Obama is on the defensive, desperately trying to cling to territory he won in 2008 and losing ground. That has been the case since the day he was inaugurated. He has been doing his best to cling to territory won and hoping against hope that he doesn’t lose too much. That’s what happens when you push a lie-filled, anti-American, anti-Christian, Socialist agenda down the throats of American citizens, the majority of whom oppose what you’re doing. (ObamaCare: the majority of the population was against it before it became Law, the majority of the population wanted it repealed immediately after it became Law, the majority of the population wanted it repealed in 2010 when they swept 700 Democrats out of office nationwide, and the majority of the population wants it repealed today.)

How big is this inability to win states Obama won his first time through? Let’s look at previous two-term Presidents.

2000: George W Bush won 271 Electoral College votes.
2004: George W Bush won 286 Electoral College votes.
George W Bush gained 15 Electoral College votes for his second term in office.

1992: Bill Clinton got 370 Electoral College votes.
1996: Bill Clinton got 379 Electoral College votes.
Bill Clinton gained 9 Electoral College votes for his second term in office. (Ross Perot went from just under 19 percent of the overall vote to under 9 percent.)

1980: Ronald Reagan, a true Conservative I could back (but wasn’t Conservative enough on some issues, and I was ineligible to vote regardless), got 489 Electoral College votes.
1984: (The first year I was eligible to vote.) Ronald Reagan got 525 Electoral College votes (losing only Minnesota by 18/100ths of a percent and DC by a huge margin).
Ronald Reagan gained 36 Electoral College votes.

In fact, the last time a sitting President won re-election despite shedding Electoral College votes was the election year of 1944, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt won a fourth term with 432 Electoral College votes, compared to his third term win of 449 Electoral College votes and his second term win of 523 Electoral College votes. But even FDR improved his second term EC votes over his first term EC votes. To find a President who won a second term with fewer EC votes than his first term, you have to go all the way back to the wholly destructive “Progressive” Democrat Woodrow Wilson who won 435 Electoral College votes in 1912, but only gained 277 in 1916, a loss of 158 Electoral College votes for “Progressivism”. He also only garnered 49.24 percent of the popular vote. (Too bad for this country that he couldn’t have lost 170 instead of only 158. Our country would have turned out far better for it.)

The Socialist Barack Obama? He doesn’t have a 168 EC vote cushion to lose. And lose EC votes, he will. Even the pinko Democrat operatives will tell you that. Even the pinko polling firms with their “Democrats will vote in higher proportions than they did in 2008″ polling numbers, will tell you that. Independent voters, who gave Obama an 8 point advantage in 2008, are giving Romney a 15 to 20 point advantage in 2012. And the above “battleground” map shows it. Obama has already lost Indiana. Obama cannot win any state he lost in 2008. The Census has reduced the EC number in states Obama won while increasing the EC number in states Obama lost. And every Battleground State is a state Obama won in 2008.

Will this be the first time in 96 years that a sitting President won re-election to a second term while shedding Electoral College votes? I think not. And since, it’s a foregone conclusion that Obama will shed Electoral College votes, I have declared Obama the loser of the 2012 election.

(Truth Before Dishonor intends to do its version of live-blogging the 2012 Presidential Election this upcoming Tuesday night. Tune in to TBD for the 2012 Presidential Election results as they happen. (hopefully))

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/10/26

This is SICKENING. The Discraced House at 1600 PA Ave., NW, Washington, DC DID NOTHING to save and fight for our fellow citizens and Americanns. Anybody who votes for Obama after reading or hearing this, is BLIND!!!

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?
Posted on October 26, 2012 byCowboy Byte

Charles Woods, the father Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the publically broadcast memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya).

When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that you’re son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”

It’s Time Romny Goes After The Treasonous Criminals

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/23

I’m long since tired of Republicans being overly-gracious winners while Democrats get to be petulant criminals without having to face judgment for their crimes. Providence said “To whom much is given, much shall be demanded.” George Bush the Younger refused to prosecute the Clinton administration criminals who were involved in vote fraud, obstruction of justice, theft of classified documents that would’ve crushed the Clintons under the weight of their own criminal actions (Vince Foster).

Luke 12:42-48 says:

42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

47 “That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

From the Wall Street Journal:

A higher standard had been applied in a previous leak prosecution, but Judge Brinkema ruled it was not necessary in Mr. Kiriakou’s case because he was a government employee with security clearances and clearly understood the rules about disclosing classified information.

The judge said prosecutors had to show only that the information could be used to harm the U.S.

Mr. Kiriakou was charged in April with disclosing classified information identifying a covert agent, illegally disclosing national defense information and making false statements.

The probe began in 2009 when authorities discovered detainees at Guantanamo Bay possessed photographs of CIA and Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel. Eventually the FBI concluded Mr. Kiriakou gave the name of one covert operative to a journalist, who then passed it on to a private investigator working for the lawyer of a Guantanamo detainee.

A former CIA agent will be spending two years in prison for leaking classified information to the Mainstream Media, who leaked it to terrorist defenders, who gave it to terrorists. The President and his administration have far greater authority and thus far greater responsibility than a mere CIA agent; thus, the President and his administration should rightly be imprisoned for far more than two years for their leaking of classified information to enemies foreign and domestic as well as to the Mainstream Media (but I repeat myself), merely to get Obama reelected and at the cost of many of our elite defense forces dying due to the classified information leaks coming out of the Obama reelection scheme. “From everyone who has been given much, much shall be demanded.”

It is far past time for Republicans to quit graciously giving a pass to treasonous, criminal Democrats and to force those Democrats to pay dearly for their crimes against the US.

Now, it’s been rumored that Obama will be handing out all manner of pardons for his peeps. If he believes some serious investigations are coming, he will not give out those pardons. Because doing so will place him in even more dire jeopardy of being imprisoned, as those he pardons will have no reason to keep silent and every reason to blow the whistle on him. They’re free from prosecution but would face prosecution if they continue to obstruct justice. Refusing to pardon them would keep them in jeopardy of prosecution if they say anything at all.

The Foreign Policy Debate or Kissing Your Cousin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

I’ve been watching the third Presidential Debate and I’ve come to the conclusion that, for the most part, two cousins have been busily pecking each other’s cheeks and playfully punching each other’s shoulders. Mitt Romney’s Foreign Policy is clearly weak, but Obama’s Foreign Policy is disastrous, so there’s no win here for either one.

For the most part, both candidates have been respectful of each other. That’s standard operating procedure for Romney, but a great improvement for Obama, and a far cry from the insanity and inanity of Biden in his only debate. As I said, for the most part. When Romney talked about the number of Naval ships being the smallest since the World War I era, Obama countered mockingly and derisively. “It’s true we have fewer ships than 1914 but we also have fewer horses and chariots (or something to that effect).” That’s not going to win over undecided voters, but it is candy for the Loony Left. “We have these things that airplanes land on, called aircraft carriers, and ships that go underwater, called submarines.” That sort of garbage will not play among the independents.

Overall, the two candidates are differing by degree and not oppositional. And the moderator is doing his job correctly, asking the questions, moving the debate along, and then getting out of the way so the two candidates can make their own points (or not make any point at all) all on their own without his help.

Vote For Barack Obama And Kill A Baby

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

Barack Obama is pro-abortion. He’s so pro-abortion that he voted against the partial birth abortion ban, which prevents murderers from delivering 90 percent of a baby, sucking that baby’s brains out, then delivering the rest of the baby. He’s also so pro-abortion that he voted against a law that requires doctors and nurses to care for a baby born alive after an attempted abortion, purposefully allowing that living, breathing baby to die.

From On The Issues.org:
 

1997: opposed bill preventing partial-birth abortion

In 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research. He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007. Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.238-239 , Aug 1, 2008

 

Opposed legislation protecting born-alive failed abortions

Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would “forbid abortions to take place.” Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, “then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.238 , Aug 1, 2008

When you vote for Barack Obama, you vote for this evil monstrosity and this crime against humanity.

Schadenfreudig!

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/20

To borrow from a fast food restaurant chain, who borrowed it from American culture: I’m lovin’ it!!! Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more!!! And, pass the popcorn (coconut oil and extra butter, please)

What’s money got to do with it?

Why, everything, of course.

Let’s throw out some seemingly random points.

Barack Obama’s reelection campaign claimed at one point (was it before or after he was innaugurated?) that they would spend ONE BILLION DOLLARS (pinky stuck to the corner of their mouth, no doubt) on this reelection campaign. Even with turning off the online security that would’ve prevented fraudulent over-seas contributions and other fraudulent contributions and other election law violations, the Obama campaign is coming up waaaaaay short of that ONE BILLION DOLLARS (muhahaha) goal. Oops.

Barack Obama told the DNC and all other Democrat candidates “you’re on your own; I won’t be giving you any money”. Sucks to be them.

Barack Obama, in his original run for President, told the Unions he’d put on his comfortable shoes and be front and center in their lines, right there with them, as they pushed for whatever they were pushing for. (What do they push for, other than theft of private citizens’ property?)


 
So, what happened in Wisconsin when the Unions needed Obama to keep his promise? Wisconsin Unions found out they were in Flyover Country! As Obama flew over Wisconsin while visiting all the states that shared borders with Wisconsin. Obama didn’t have time for them because he was working to get himself reelected (years in advance).

And the Unions screamed in torture that the DNC and Obama weren’t ponying up the money they needed to achieve their goal.

Oh, by the way, the Unions were spending tens of millions of dollars to lose at the voting booth, all the while their forced Union dues were drying up. One of the biggest Public Employee Unions in Wisconsin lost over half of its dues-paying members in under a year, all the while, the Union was spending like gangbusters on politics.


 

Obama didn’t put on his comfortable shoes and walk the picket like he promised he would. Quelle dommage! Quel suprise! Obama broke a promise! A promise made to get himself elected! Because he was too busy trying to get money to get reelected to help someone not named Barack Obama. And he isn’t getting his ONE BILLION DOLLARS (muhahaha), despite his aiding and abetting fraud and felonies.

I, for one, was loudly cheering on the Unions. I strongly encouraged them to spend all the money they could, and then to spend more. For a very simple reason.

Moving on, the DNC has decided to thank the Charlotte DNC Committee for the free lunch. That’s right. The national Democrat party has stiffed the committee that organized and ran the Democrat National Convention. “Thank you for putting on this extravagant gala. No, we won’t be giving you any money.” It turns out the Charlotte DNC Committee has run 12.5 MILLION DOLLARS short in paying its bills to run a gala for Barack Obama and the National Democrats. And Obama and the National Democrats aren’t about to help the Charlotte DNC Committee in its shortfall. And the Charlotte DNC Committee is depending on future donations to pay off that 12.5 MILLION DOLLAR debt. “Hey, buddy, do you want to chip in to pay for an event that has already happened, to support a candidate and cause that lost? We could really use your money, or businesses could go bankrupt and people could lose their jobs because we can’t pay them.” That’s not going to sell.

Oh, by the way, the Unions (who support Democrats 99 percent of the time and with 99 percent of their dollars) were busy boycotting the Convention because it took place in a Right To Work state!

And now we have news about the terrible financial state of the DNC (who refused to help defray the costs of their own convention). From The Other McCain:

RNC Trounces DNC in Fundraising as Democrat Party Goes Bankrupt

[Link to site that I don't link to] The official Federal Election Committee reports for September are out [end link to site that I don't link to], and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s DNC is a complete wreck. The Democrats ended September with cash on hand of $4.6 million, compared to the Republican National Committee’s $82.6 million.

That’s nearly an 18-to-1 cash advantage for Republicans.

Worse still for the DNC, they had to take out loans to pay the bills so that they owed $20.5 million at the end of September, meaning that that (subtracting cash on hand from total debt) they were $15.9 million in the red — essentially bankrupt. Wasserman-Schultz’s committee only raised $3.7 million in September; at that pace, it would take them more than four months to clear their debt, even if they didn’t spend another dime in the meantime.

So, let’s recap.

Barack Obama, who told all the other Democrats “you’ll get no money from me”, cannot get to his ONE BILLION DOLLARS (muhahaha) goal, and is losing in the polls and is losing in the Electoral College and is being rolled over by the political tide (Roll, Tide!).

The DNC, who refused to “pay their fair share” of the costs to bring you the DNC Convention and all its lies and pandering (not to mention the complete face plant with all those anti-Israel and anti-Providence boisterous boos), is 20 MILLION DOLLARS in debt and has 1/18 (one eighteenth) the cash on hand as the RNC.

The Charlotte DNC Committee is 12.5 MILLION DOLLARS in debt and cannot get any money from higher up, and is depending on people to contribute money for an event that already took place.

The Unions have spent tens of millions of dollars they couldn’t afford, only to lose the elections they had to win in order to zombify their dead Union Dues — to — Democrat Election machine. All the while, watching their Union Dues dry up as newly liberated people used their liberation to extricate themselves from the Union leeches.

In short, all those whose goals would necessarily impoverish America are, themselves, becoming impoverished. Their money-making outlets are drying up. They’re going deep into debt, spending their future election money today. They’re losing their enslaved contributors. And they’re losing the elections. All the while, they’re refusing to support one another, as they each look out for their own selves. Which is typical of the sort of mindset that is necessary to be part and parcel of any of their various sub-groups. And the outyears will find them needing to cover costs for previous losing campaigns with their greatly reduced future money, leaving them less able in the future to spend the big bucks.

All the better for Conservatives. All the better for the poor. All the better for the middle class. All the better for small businesses. All the better for America!!!

Military Endorsements, And The Winner Is…

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/17

Barack Obama has six high-profile military endorsements, all male. Mitt Romney has six retired female flag officers* (that’s general/admiral stuff for you non-military types) among his military endorsements. Actually, Mitt Romney has 359 retired flag officers who have endorsed him for President.

Who do you suppose those who have served this country in uniform support?

*I didn’t count names like “Terry” and “Chris” (there were no Danas) or names that were only initials, so the count could be higher.

Presidential Polling: Breaking The 50 Percent Barrier

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/17

Gallup has a new poll out from data it collected from October 10 to October 16, showing the 50 percent barrier has been crossed. This is important because when an incumbent has less than 50 percent of the likely voters this late in the stage, that incumbent is in serious danger of being defeated — even if the incumbent has the lead in the polls. Because people who are undecided this late in the game break very heavily toward the challenger. The incumbent has a record, and that record has not convinced the undecided voter. What’s left?

So, when a poll with the clout of Gallup comes out and declares that 51 percent of likely voters have stepped up to the plate and declared they will be voting for Obama and 45 percent will be voting for Romney, leaving only 4 percent undecided, that means something major.

Wait, what? Oh, that’s right. Never mind. The Gallup poll of likely voters shows Romney with 51 percent of the vote, a clear majority, to Obama’s 45 percent to give Romney a 6 point lead. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Perhaps it’s time to put down the dominoes. A storm surge is coming in.

Tonight’s Presidential Debate

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/16

Tonight is the second of three Presidential debates this campaign season. It is in a moderated and moderator-directed “townhall-lite” format. A great many sites will be all over all of Obama’s lies, whether it’s lying about what Romney actually said (and there are many of those Obama lies) or lying about Romney’s actual recort (and there are many of those Obama lies) or lying about what Obama himself actually said (and there are many of those Obama lies) or lying about what Obama himself actually accomplished (and there are many of those Obama lies) or any other manner of Obama lies. There is a lot of meat for honest fact-checkers to have very long-winded articles shredding the heavy amount of falsehoods Obama has put out in this debate.

There will also be a great many people on the Left and the Right who will have plenty negative to say about Romney. For one, Romney’s no Conservative, as his statements in this debate have proven.

As I said, you will be able to find all that information and more on a great many other sites. So I will not cover them in this article. What I want to point out, something that was very obvious for the 45 minutes I listened to the debate on my drive home from work, is the civility or incivility involved in the debate. The respectfulness or lack thereof.

***For the record, and to be perfectly clear, Truth Before Dishonor has never endorsed Mitt Romney. Dana Pico has endorsed him on this site and I have written scathing articles against Romney on this site, but Dana Pico and I will both agree that while Mitt Romney is no Conservative, he’s far better than the Socialist Barack Obama.

But re-listen to the debate in the memory banks of your mind. When it was Barack Obama’s turn to talk, Mitt Romney listened quietly and allowed Barack Obama to say whatever he wanted without interruption. But when it was Mitt Romney’s turn to talk, Barack Obama was constantly interrupting and trying to talk over top of Mitt Romney, trying to prevent Mitt Romney from saying whatever it was Romney was saying.

Who was the more respectful, more Presidential, more civil, more professional debater? Very clearly, it was Mitt Romney.

Who was the more impertinent, more disrespectful, more rabble-rousing, less civil, less professional debater? Very clearly, it was Barack Obama.

That is what I heard. And if you replay the debate in your mind’s memory banks, that is what you will hear, too. That is, if you’re being Truthful to yourself.

UPDATE: I said other sites would be chronicling the massive number of Obama lies in last night’s debate, and JE Dyer did just that. I also said people on the right would be dinging Romney, and she did that, too.

Uh Oh! Obama Loses Twelve Points To Romney In Latest Polling

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/08

Pew has released its October poll and Obama received terrible news. He lost 12 points to Romney in a single month. Perhaps it’s time for Obama’s corrupt Department of Injustice to sue Pew. The Socialist Perry Hood of Lewes, Delaware was crowing about the September Pew poll despite being shown very clearly that the poll was heavily skewed Democrat, far afield of the actual voting populace. So what will the Left (whom Perry Hood parrots) say about the same polling firm now that the numbers show Obama losing by 4? Will they, and consequently the parrot, accept the numbers? I highly doubt it. They’re very inconsistent like that.

Pew’s September poll, and many other polling outfits’ September polls, were heavily skewed to the Democrat side of the RDI. Far afield of the actual voting makeup of the US population. And people went through the effort to unskew the polls. This effort showed Romney with a strong lead over Obama instead of the strong Obama lead that Pew and others were showing. Of course, the Left scoffed at the idea of unskewing their skewed polls. Well, Pew did just that. They unskewed their own September poll with their October poll, showing a far more realistic RDI sample. And the result is Romney leads Obama by 4 in October.

Now there’s a reason polling outfits would skew in September but not in October (or not so badly in October). It’s actually a very simple reason. While there are those who don’t see anything nefarious about the shenanigans, I do. And here’s why:

  • Polling outfits want Liberals to win, so they provide propaganda showing Democrats in unrealistic leads. It helps bring low-information voters into the fold and discourages Conservative voters. It pushes the actual polling numbers more to the polling firms’ liking, thus when it’s time to unskew the polls, the damage has been done.
  • Polling outfits like to tout their accuracy, pointing back to previous voting outcomes compared to their polls; thus, they have to have final unskewed polls to show to unsuspecting readers. Their earlier polls, since they are far enough away from the election, can be ignored. Or they can be said to show the gradual shift toward Conservatives as the cycle goes on (for other insidious anti-First Amendment activities by lawmakers and Leftist activists alike).

In order for the polling outfits to push their two-fold propaganda, they have to push a Left bias in their polls to start and then shift their polls to far more reasonable breakdowns as the election approaches. And this is what Pew has done. It is what other polling firms will be doing, as the election approaches. They have no choice if they want to be believed in later years.

In other bad news, that polling firm the corrupt Obama Department of Injustice sued is showing a 47/47 tie among registered voters, a 5-point Obama loss from its previous poll. What’s worse, this is a poll of registered voters, which consistantly swings two or three points further Left than the actual vote results will show. So, when adjusted for likely voters, Obama is trailing here, too.

In still other news, Obama went from +10 in Michigan in September to +3 now, with a margin of error of +/-4. That means it’s a statistical dead heat in Michigan. And in Pennsylvania, Obama only leads by 2 with a D+6 poll. That makes Pennsylvania a very clear toss-up, unlike what the loony Left were saying.

Mark Davis, who broadcasts on 660 am “The Answer”, declared there are only 4 possible outcomes to the Presidential election:

  • Obama wins by a landslide.
  • Obama wins a squeaker.
  • Romney wins a squeaker.
  • Romney wins by a landslide.

And he declared the first one, where Obama wins by a landslide, ain’t never gonna happen. I agree. The other three possibilities could happen, although he believes the middle two are the most likely. But as time goes on toward the election and the polls start unskewing, it’s looking more and more like the last two are the most likely with Obama’s squeaker least likely of the three and Obama’s landslide still ain’t never gonna happen.

Obama Needs To Grow A “Big Stick”

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/09/12

During the moment of silence to remember 9/11, NBC decided to interview a Kardashian instead.

Muslim Brotherhood terrorists attacked the US Embassy in Egypt. And that embassy apologized to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists for our First Amendment!

Muslim Brotherhood terrorists attacked the US Consulate in Libya, killing our ambassador.

MSNBC went out of its way to loudly declare its desire to have a Christian pastor charged with accessory to murder due to his non-violent exercising of his First Amendment rights, which MSNBC declared responsible for Muslim Brotherhood terrorists behaving like terrorists.

Of course, Obama has decided to get tough with … Israel! By refusing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister.

While the media has very clearly coordinated their Left-wing agenda questioning of Romney over Egypt and Libya, Barack Obama refused to take any questions after reading a statement someone else prepared for him to read, as is very typical and very habitual of Obama.

Of course, two people spoke out very clearly in defense of the US and our Constitution.

As Erika Johnsen reports:


 

I think it’s an absolutely horrible thing, because what you have to understand — here we are on 9/11, remembering the attacks… and now we have had another attack on sovereign American soil, which is what a consulate and an embassy is. Our flag was torn down, it was burned, the radical Islamists’ flag was raised, and we have an American official that lost their life. And the first thing that comes out is that we’re going to apologize for something that a Christian, Coptic individual posted in a video on his Facebook site. So now, if we’re going to start eschewing our freedom of speech rights to apologize to people for these type of attacks, Greta, you’re only get even more of this. This is rewarding bad behavior, and I think you’re going to see this dovetail into other countries. … I think it’s a horrific response that we’re apologizing. We’re accepting the blame for this which means you’re going to feel more of this response. …

Spot-on. It is insane — insane – that we should feel the need to tiptoe around the tender feelings of violent, overzealous radical Islamists (or, as some in the MSM now seem to be oh-so-subtly calling them, “ultraconservative” Islamists — really, guys?). Freedom of religion and freedom of speech are human rights, and I don’t mean that like ‘universal healthcare’ is supposed to be a human right (which, by the way, it isn’t). They are undeniable, inalienable, universal rights — absolutely no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it — and for representatives of the United States to get all sheepish and showcase their willingness to be bullied on that point makes me extremely nervous, to say the least.

Here’s what that Great American Sarah Palin had to say:

Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy?

It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.

- Sarah Palin

Is there any question, any question at all, why I endorsed a Palin/West Presidential ticket last year?

The Obama administration is absolutely an international disgrace to our nation. NBC is disgraceful. The mainstream media with its Left-Wing agenda — not bias but agenda — is a disgrace to our nation. MSNBC, with its anti-Constitutional, Socialist agenda, is an absolute disgrace to America, to journalism, to anything representing honorable values.

And if anyone holds any value whatsoever for the opinions or “journalism” coming out of MSNBC, that person is both a fool and an idiot, and cannot be considered to be a valuable contributing member to society.

The #DNC Is Good For America! #tcot

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/09/05

The Democrat National Convention is good for America. There, I said it. And I mean it. The goings on at the Democrat bash will help America understand the Democrat philosophy, and it will not help the Democrats. (By the way, watch that well-known Socialist librarian from New Zealand dance in ecstasy as he quotes Eric Boehlert of the radical Left-wing, George Soros-funded Media Matters declaring the collapse of the TEA Party — in August, 2010. A funny thing happened on the way to the demise of the TEA Party. November, 2010 happened. And Primary season 2012 happened.)

So, how is the Democrat Convention helping the US? First, we have this little number:


 

Right there for all the world to see, and in the friendly confines of the Democrat convention, was broadcast that very dangerous and Socialist/Fascist idea that we all belong to the government! And it went viral in all the wrong (for Democrats) places. Of course, Truth Before Dishonor had it. The First Street Journal picked it up. Allahpundit covered it and its aftermath, while Mary Katharine Ham showed people attending the convention loved the idea of being owned by the government or something.


 

“Regardless of where you live, you’re gonna be owned by someone at some point. I think the American government so far has been a fair government and I don’t necessarily hate that I’m owned by them at this point.”

And some person in that video actually had the lack of self-awareness necessary to scorn the Republicans for not believing we belong to the government. There’s a word for one person owning another. That word is slavery. We had a war that decided that issue back in the mid 19th Century. Democrats were for some people owning other people back then, and Republicans were opposed to it back then. And now, here’s more proof that Democrats are still in favor of some people owning other people while Republicans are still opposed to it.

As mentioned, there was some serious fall-out as a result of this video that the Democrat convention attendees were drooling over, like happy lemmings.

An Obama aide emails that the Charlotte host committee, not the Obama campaign, produced the video:

The video in question was produced and paid for by the host committee of the city of Charlotte. It’s neither an OFA nor a DNC video, despite what the Romney campaign is claiming. It’s time for them to find a new target for their faux outrage.

And Dan Murrey, the executive director of the Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee, said in an emailed statement:

The “Welcome to Charlotte” video was solely produced and paid for by the Host Committee’s New American City Fund, which promotes the city of Charlotte and welcomes our guests. The intent of this video was to tell the story of this region and it is completely unaffiliated with the Obama campaign or the Democratic National Committee.

Mainstream media, which shills for the Democrats, weren’t covering this hubbub. So why did Barack Obama and the Democrat National Committee have to run away from it so fast? And why did they have to lay blame on a group hand-picked by Democrat power-brokers as being responsible, while the Democrat power-brokers were Pontius Pilating it away? Because they knew the severe damage it was doing to their campaign! That they didn’t know what damage it was going to do when they were putting it together tells a big enough story in itself.

So, yes. The Democrat National Convention and the Democrat National Committee is indeed good for America, as they show her what they’re really about and she wakes up and realizes the mortal threat she’s under from the Democrat power-brokers.

Lying Under Oath, It’s A Democrat Thing

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/08/15

Former President Clinton perjured himself and suborned perjury while the sitting President. He wanted to keep the truth tucked neatly under his desk.

Eric Holder and other members of his “Department of Justice” lied under oath to Congress concerning Fast and Furious, what they knew, when they knew it, what they were doing, how far up the chain of command it went.

First, OF&F’s gunrunning has left hundreds of murder victims in its wake, including two US government agents, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata. It’s likely that the guns trafficked by the ATF in 2009 will claim more victims. Thus far, there is no indication that the Obama administration has done so much as demote anyone over the program. Administration officials lied to Congress about the nature of the program and their knowledge of it, which is the proximate cause for the contempt citation.

If Congress can’t access documents to investigate executive-branch malfeasance of this scope, especially with the added dollop of perjury and obstruction of justice vis-a-vis the House Oversight Committee, then Congress will have no real ability to conduct oversight of executive-branch activities at all. That plus the extremely shaky claim of executive privilege puts the Obama administration on course for a big loss, and a very large precedent on Congressional subpoenas that both parties will celebrate and have cause to regret in the future.

And Steven Chu, most recently, has been called out as he and other members of his Department of Energy lied under oath to Congress concerning all the “green energy” loans that were going out to political beneficiaries, the DoE’s attempts to hide the communications, in violation of more than one Federal Law, and other similar criminally corrupt activities.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-California) sent a letter to DOE Secretary Steven Chu on Tuesday, calling out him and his Department for apparently providing false testimony to Congress concerning the energy loan program.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, along with Subcommittee Chairmen Jim Jordan and Trey Gowdy, asked Secretary of Energy Steven Chu to clarify apparently false testimony to Congress about efforts to conceal documents from investigators and White House involvement in the Department of Energy Loan Program that used taxpayer funds to support companies including Solyndra. The request comes after the Committee obtained documents from individual non-official e-mail accounts contradicting the testimony.

“Recently-obtained documents show DOE officials frequently used Yahoo! and Gmail to communicate about the loan guarantee program,” Issa, Jordan, and Gowdy wrote to Chu. “This use of non-government e-mail accounts for official business may have violated the Presidential Records Act (PRA) and the Federal Records Act (FRA). The documents also show that testimony given to the Committee by current and former DOE officials, including you, was inaccurate, and may have been intentionally false.”

While Clinton was doing his perjury thing about a soiled dress and a ruined cigar, the Obama administration is doing their perjury thing about corrupt Chicago-style “pay to play” billions of Federal Government dollars to Democrat insiders and thousands of guns that were intentionally run across the border and have been used to murder hundreds of people (with hundreds more murders sure to follow). And the Leftist “mainstream media” is working overtime to hide all that information to a sheep-like populace in their efforts to cover for the criminally corrupt and murderous Obama administration.

I expect this to play out even after Obama loses re-election, with many Democrat operatives doing the perp-walk for their many Federal crimes. There is a non-zero possibility that Obama could do a tall stack of 11th hour Presidential Pardons, but I don’t believe the likelihood is all that high.

1) Pardoning a pile of administration officials would put a permanent taint on Democrats in general, greatly harming their chances at majority or the Presidency for years to come. But I don’t believe Obama is at all concerned with other Democrats; only with himself. So this issue is a weak point against pardons.

2) Pardoning a pile of administration officials take the Fifth Amendment off the table. Nobody who has been immunized against his or her previous crimes can avoid testifying about his or her previous (now immunized) crimes, thus the conspiratorial nature of their crimes combined with unpardoned people (such as Obama himself, since he cannot pardon himself) is suddenly available to the Courts. This is the major reason why I believe Obama will not issue a raft of pardons for his administration team. He cannot afford to take the specter of a long prison sentence away from any member of his staff. It would spell doom for him. And, again, while wholly unimportant to Obama himself, it would crush Democrat political hopes for years to come.

So, yes, look for a nice long list of Obama administration types to do the perp walk for their many corruptions and Federal Felonies sometime in the future.
