Historic Political Realignment Likely in Upcoming Elections

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

Perhaps the only way around that is to rig the election by giving illegals amnesty and get them to vote Democrat. We learned about these political realignment in Dr. Parker’s political science class.

Dr. Paul A. Rahe:

…the country had suffered under the New Deal for fourteen years, and Americans, understandably, were fed up. Moreover, as Michael Barone pointed out last May, “After World War II Democrats wanted to retain wartime high taxes, pro-union labor laws, and wage and price controls, all manipulatable for political benefit by political insiders. Republicans  . . . won big enough majorities to lower taxes, revise labor laws and abolish controls.”

Abraham Lincoln once observed, “Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.” It is possible, of course, that events will intervene between now and November. It is conceivable that the healthcare bill and the manner in which it was passed in both the Senate and the House will be forgotten. But this is not likely. If the Republicans stick together, mount a principled opposition to the Obama administration on all fronts, and recruit first-rate candidates to run in every district at both the state and the federal levels in November, it is highly likely that there will be a political earthquake in this country on a scale not seen since 1932.

 As I have argued now for months – first, in August, here; then, in November, here and here; and, more recently, here, here, and here – a genuine political realignment may be in the offing. This has happened at irregular intervals in our nation’s past – most notably, in 1800, 1828, 1860, and 1932 – and on each occasion the political party benefiting from the upheaval was able to paint a plausible picture depicting their opponents as being parties to a conspiracy to overthrow the liberties possessed by their fellow Americans. This is what Thomas Jefferson did to the Federalists in and after 1800; it was what Andrew Jackson did to John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, Nicholas Biddle, and the Whigs in and after 1828; it was what Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans did to the slave power conspiracy and its fellow travelers in the North in and after 1860, and it was what Franklin Delano Roosevelt did to Herbert Hoover and the business-minded progressives in and after 1932. When FDR claimed, at the 1936 Democratic convention, that “a small group”  of his fellow Americans was intent on concentrating “into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor – other people’s lives,”  he was merely rephrasing the charges lodged in an earlier time by Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and their political allies.

If the Republicans have a comparable opportunity in 2010 and 2012, it is because of what I described in my very first blogpost as “Obama’s Tyrannical Ambition.” Barack Obama has a gift. He has told us so himself, and he is right, but he errs in supposing that his oratorical skill will enable him to fool all of the people all of the time, and over time he has, in effect, unmasked his own party as a conspiracy on the part of a would-be aristocracy of do-gooders hostile to very idea of self-government in the United States. There is no need for me to review the record of the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress in the last fifteen months. It is enough to say that, in an administration that promised transparency, everything has been negotiated behind closed doors in a manner suggestive of tyranny and that, in an administration that promised to distance itself from the lobbyists, every major bill has been written by them and is loaded with special deals that give new meaning to the old phrase “corrupt bargain.”  The stimulus bill, cap-and-trade, healthcare reform: with these Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid have brought home to the American people, as never before, the tyrannical propensities inherent in the progressive impulse. Thanks to them, everyone now knows that there is no such thing as a moderate Democrat.

 

From the  “Obama’s Tyrannical Ambition.” link:

Back in 1912, when Woodrow Wilson successfully ran for the presidency, he told his compatriots, “We are in the presence of a new organization of society.” Our time marks “a new social stage, a new era of human relationships, a new stagesetting for the drama of life,” and “the old political formulas do not fit the present problems: they read now like documents taken out of a forgotten age.” What Thomas Jefferson once taught is now, he insisted, quite out of date. It is “what we used to think in the old-fashioned days when life was very simple.” Above all else, he hoped to persuade his compatriots to get “beyond the Declaration of Independence.” That document “did not mention the questions of our day,” he told them. “It is of no consequence to us. It is an eminently practical document, meant for the use of practical men; not a thesis for philosophers, but a whip for tyrants; not a theory of government, but a program of action”–once of use, outdated now.

 

Sound familiar?

Democrat Sen. Reid Supporters Turn Violent, Throw Eggs at Tea Party Participants and Threaten Andrew Breitbart – Democrat’s violence and incitement against Republicans Part V. UPDATE Dozens of more death threats against Palin and others. – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

That is correct, so much violence and hate from the Democrats that we are now up to five large posts just to catalogue what we can find ourselves. See Part I and Part II, Part III, and Part IV, – This post will be updated regularly till it gets too long, then I will start part VI – keep checking back and scrolling to the bottom of the post!

UPDATE II – Nevada Democratic Party leaders file false police reports against Tea Party participants to try and create an incident – Caught on video –

UPDATEMan who threatened Andrew Breitbart identified and he is connected to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Via Big Government:

Last night we received an email from blogger Liberty Chick potentially identifying the man who threatened Andrew Breitbart:

Can’t say 100% but I think the dude from Searchlight that threatened Andrew (said to keep him away from him or “I’m goin to jail”) might be Jim Nardi, who belongs to a whole slew of progressive groups in Nevada, for example:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Join-the-Coffee-Party-Movement-in-Las-Vegas-NV/321014126431

So, I went back to the second video posted on http://biggovernment.com/amarcus/2010/03/30/video-the-egg-man-of-seachlight-nevada . You have to listen and watch really carefully – at 1:51 in that video, the black guy in the dark wool cap & dark coat on the right (holding the rolled up American flag) says “Come on, Jim” and holds him back just as he steps in between the “or I’m goin to jail” guy and Andrew to try and calm the situation. You have to listen a few times to hear it.

 

Via Founding Bloggers and HotAir.com:

Democrat thugs supporting the Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid turnbed violent today when they threw eggs at Tea Party Participants and threatened Andrew Breitbart. At least this time they were smart enough not to wear their SEIU t-shorts.

Threats against Sarah Palin tied to MSNBC’s incitement via Patterico and Republican Heretic:

On Twitter, a fellow calling himself Jason Brown has been posting since May 10, 2009, and has a total of 379 messages posted so far. He is a fan of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. Typical of his leftist political beliefs are messages like this:

@maddow doesnt Cheney seem like this weird dark evil prince hmm say like Mr. Burns and i guess ol’ George was Smithers

and this:

and this:

In recent days, Brown has been saying that he is concerned about the violence that he believes Sarah Palin is fostering.

So, he is threatening to kill Sarah Palin and her family.

I had hoped to post about 20 screenshots from this guy’s Twitter account, but with the technical work being done on the site I find myself suddenly unable to upload images. So I will just quote you the messages. He posted most of them tonight, and they include messages like this:

@sEaTtLe_MeTrO Death 2 Palin family them retarded hillbillies take teabaggers w/ you hateful bitch

and this:

UPDATEAlbemarle County, Virginia  GOP Headquarters Attacked

Via RepublicanHeretic:

Oh drat and curses, those evil, hateful, ignorant, racist teabaggers must have whipped up a call to violence yet again!

Oh, wait, it was a GOP office in Virginia that was vandalized. Yawn. Move along, nothing to see here.

Well, at least the local paper covered it.

Bricks were thrown through the windows of the Albemarle County GOP headquarters overnight in what appears to be the Charlottesville area’s latest act of politically fueled vandalism. County GOP Chairwoman Rachel Schoenewald arrived at the office in the Albemarle Square shopping center Friday morning to find two windows shattered and a third partially damaged.

“Hopefully, everyone will conduct themselves as community members and that this violence does not escalate or continue,” she said. The county’s GOP headquarters also serves as the district office of Del. Rob Bell, R-Albemarle. Schoenewald declined to blame any particular group, but noted that people are angry on both sides of the political spectrum.

“There are millions of people across the country,” she said. “Many of them are upset, one way or another. I hope this is the last of the violence.” Albemarle County police are investigating the incident. Police estimated the damage would cost roughly $1,000 to fix. Police asked anyone with information about the vandalism to call Crimestoppers at 977-4000.

The shattered windows come five months after someone glued shut the GOP headquarters’ doors on Election Day when Republican Bob McDonnell defeated Democrat R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.

NFL Great Fran Tarkington on how Government is Killing Business Confidence and Jobs, Government Thuggary.

See our previous post on this story HERE.

Would you take risk in the United States with this regulatory uncertainty, all these new taxes and this government thuggary? And you wonder why the worlds risk takers are investing in China and not here.

Government using thug tactics to silence companies telling the truth about the new taxes, new laws and economy. These are publically held companies and by law they have to put out these forcasts. Democrats making accusitory phone calls to CEO’s, summoning documents for fishing expeditions.  –

A partial list of Republican proposed health care bills

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

We wrote a review of one of the lastest GOP alternative bills HERE.

Here is a short list of some of the GOP proposed health proposals from the Washington Examiner:

A search of the LexisNexis database of newspapers, magazines, television programs and major blogs finds about 3,000 mentions of the major House Democratic bill, H.R. 3200, in the past six months. (Those are just the stories that refer to the bill by its House number; there have been thousands more stories referring generally to the Democratic legislation.) A similar search found 60 mentions of H.R. 3400, the Price bill.

Another Republican bill, H.R. 2520, the Patients’ Choice Act, by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, received 12 mentions in the same time period. And two other bills, H.R. 3217 and H.R. 3218, the Health Care Choice Act and the Improving Health Care for All Americans Act, by Rep. John Shadegg, together received 20 mentions.

The virtual embargo on reporting Republican legislation has allowed Democrats and their allies in the media to keep up the “Republicans have no plan” attack. Just hours after the president’s speech, for example, the Democratic National Committee released a new commercial claiming that Republicans “refuse to offer a plan” to reform the health care system.

Just for the record, in case you want to check them out, these are the bills proposed, so far, by Price and his allies in the House: H.R. 77; H.R. 109; H.R. 198; H.R. 270; H.R. 321; H.R. 464; H.R. 502; H.R. 544; H.R. 917; H.R. 1086; H.R. 1118; H.R. 1441; H.R. 1458; H.R. 1468; H.R. 1658; H.R. 1891; H.R. 2520; H.R. 2607; H.R. 2692; H.R. 2784; H.R. 2785; H.R. 2786; H.R. 2787; H.R. 3141; H.R. 3217; H.R. 3218; H.R. 3356; H.R. 3372; H.R. 3400; H.R. 3438; H.R. 3454; and H.R. 3478.

“It’s frustrating,” Price says. But Republicans believe that in the end, the public won’t buy the administration’s line. “The American people are smarter than that,” Price says. “They know there are alternatives out there. That’s what August was all about.”

How Media Manipulation Works: The careful out of context use of the film edit

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

Via Black & Right:

In this video you can see Ann Coulter answering the question about killing muslim terror leaders and converting them to Christianity. There is indeed much historical context to this as we have done this in Japan, Germany and South Korea. What the elite media did, to slander Miss Coulter, is to take a question from one student, edit out the thoughtful answer, snip to the video and Ann giving a flippant response to a heckler, but make it look like Ann answered the student’s question with the flippant comment.

This is full-blown journalistic malpractice and the elite media is happy to run with it. Here is the elite media clip followed by the REAL clip of what happened.

UPDATE – Via McLean’s Magazine:

Fatima Al Dhaher, the poor wee thing traumatized by Ann Coulter’s camel joke at the University of Western Ontario, was a member of a Facebook group called “It’s Called Palestine Not Israel,” committed to the elimination of the Jewish state and regarding its present occupants as “subhuman” “zionazis/kikeroaches.” I have no objection to Miss Al Dhaher pursuing her extracurricular enthusiasms, but she would seem, even for Canada, too parodic a poster gal for “restraint” and “civility.”

Sean Penn: “Those who critique Hugo Chavez should go to jail”. Maria Conchita Alonso responds.

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

You could tell that Fox & Freinds was behind on the clock because Alonso sorda got cut off, and I hate it when that happens, but a good video and here is her open letter.

Alonso:

Dear Sean, WHY?

Even though I have great respect for your artistic talent, I was appalled by a recent television interview where you vigorously showed support for the regime of Hugo Chavez. Therefore, I’ve decided to set the record straight for you regarding the Chavez regime, supporting my case based not only on my political ideologies, but on proven facts you choose to ignore.  Otherwise, I believe your position would be different.

Being born in Cuba, a country where freedom of speech is non-existent, it’s startling to observe how Venezuela, where I was happily raised, is fast becoming Cuba’s mirror image: Dismantling of fundamental democratic rights deserved by its people and citizens of the world.

For example, you said that all Chavez-winning elections in Venezuela were “transparent.”

Then WHY didn’t the government allow a manual recount of the votes and computer information when doubt set in? After all, how do you explain how these votes that were strongly favoring the opposition mysteriously reflected the opposite results the morning after, thus permitting Chavez to continue on?  On what are you basing your conclusions? I strongly recommend that you read a report by the U.S. State Department written in 2009 entitled “The Fraudulent Elections in Venezuela”.

Agreed, Chavez did win his first elections, but like Hitler, he betrayed what the country gave him: The vote of confidence.

Six months ago they said we were nuts, now they admit we are correct on ObamaCare

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

As we have stated previously and other analysis has also explained (LINKS 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7), this ObamaCare bill is designed to make our health care so expensive that we “cry out for a public option” as Nancy Pelosi said. The left said we were nuts, but now Al Sharpton, some on MSNBC are using the “S word” (socialism) openly going so far as even saying that socialism is what Obama campaigned on….

Obama on the transition process to nationalized health care.

More:

Obama saying how he would do health care different form the Clinton’s, notice the transparency and process he is describing was never seriously attempted.

So six months ago we were “nuts” and now some on the left admit that we are right. Of course if one were still in denial over this and believes the video’s and information links above are totally innocent coincidences, at the very least you must admit that Obama gives very different messages when he is in front of different groups, showing that he is just a typical politician willing to tell you anything you want to hear at the time.

This one is just a bonus, definitely worth the 5 minutes. This video is from a left-wing, union supporting Obama voter who came to the realization that his president just doesn’t tell the truth. The shame is that this guy who is just waking up, doesn’t realize that this ObamaCare bill regulates the insurance industry in such a way that it is designed to blow them up and make health care costs skyrocket; using the Alinsky model they will blame capitalism and freedom for the problems they created and offer a government take over as the solution. –

The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.

Posted by iusbvision on March 29, 2010

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

“The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
