When bad men combine, the good must associate;
Undying Creed: The Acceleration of Our Exceptionalism
By Alan Caruba January 27, 2010
“Après moi le déluge” is attributed to the French king, Louis XV (1710-1774) who bankrupted his nation and would cost his grandson, Louis XVI, his head in a revolution (1789-1799) that went so badly that Napolean eventually took over and annointed himself Emperor. If only Barack Hussein Obama had the old king’s grasp of economics and history.
The Tea Party movement is the modern equivalent of the American Revolution that went quite well, albeit taking some seven years to wear out the British resolve to hold onto its colonies. Within six months, the new nation had signed agreements with Great Britain to get trade going again though, in 1812, there was another disagreement involving a bit of military conflict. Since then, we have been good friends through thick and thin.
I cite all this history because the history of America, along with a careful analysis of its demographics, its population, native-born and naturalized, portends that, once we get past the megolomania and Marxist ideology of the current pretender to the throne…oops, I mean to the Oval Office, America is ideally poised to dig itself out of its current financial difficulties.
And that, dear reader, is the good news!

Defeating America’s True Nemesis: Tyranny of a ruling elite
By Jerry A. Kane January 27, 2010
The tea parties that sprang up across the nation last year were clarion calls to the leaders of the republic to honor the founding principles in the Declaration of Independence and uphold the Constitution as originally conceived, and to do battle with the statist progressive enemy which now threatens our republic.
However, a feud has erupted among tea party activists. They have become increasingly divided on how to fight America’s new tyrannical nemesis. Should tea partiers start another political party to shape policy and elections at local, state, and national levels, or do they join the Republican Party or a third party in an attempt to change the current direction of the country?…
Even though progressive statists are in a minority in the United States, they rule the Democrat Party and control the leadership of the House, Senate, and Presidency. If tea partiers remain divided against this common enemy, attempts to save the Republic will fail miserably and the country will fall inexorably to ruin in the clutches of elitist tyrants and one-party rule. Edmund Burke’s advice is as sound today as it was some 200 years ago.
“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”
Rest assured the Spirit of ‘76 is not dead; it is only slumbering. As Thomas Jefferson aptly noted, “[T]he body of the American people is substantially republican.” And so it remains to this day, which means it is not nor has it ever been socialist.
However, if tea partiers decide to support a new political party or third party candidates, their votes will be divided to allow the abominable statist progressive monster to remain in power and grow even larger and more menacing.
Let history record that in 2010 WE THE PEOPLE corrected the direction of the United States and began the restoration of the Republic, which stands under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Behind the Republican Party’s Malaise
By Daniel Greenfield
-The Republican Party is Conservative
-The Republican Party Fears Extremism
-The Republican Party is Playing it Safe
-The Republican Party is Big Business Minded
-The Republican Party Can’t Get Angry
-The Republican Party has No Real Agenda
To have a vision you must want to change things. The Democrats do and they’ve gotten very far doing it. The protesters at the Town Halls want to change things, but their party isn’t listening to them. The spirit of a party is not at the polling booth or in the tv commercial or the neatly printed election day leaflet, but in the beliefs that its members want to fight for and the vision that they have of what America should be.
There is neither pride nor meaning in winning simply because the public thinks that the Democrats are failures or nuts. It is a victory that accomplishes nothing except to slow the rate of decay. A meaningful victory is one fought and won for a vision of America, one that holds true to the freedom of its citizens, to the defense of its borders, and the supremacy of its ideals. Only recovering those ideals as passionate principles worth fighting for, not paying mere lip service to, will restore the party’s spirit again.
Labor Bosses Control Congress and POTUS Now, But Not Forever
By Jerry McConnell January 27, 2010
Unions came along at first to alleviate the harsh conditions of factories, mills and dangerous work such as coal mining where men went well down into the bowels of earth to hand dig coal loose from the ground and load it on to carts which were then either pushed back to the surface of hauled up shafts by hand. Coal mining was probably the most punishing and dangerous work in existence those days….
That was then; today sees a decidedly different picture of labor unions and workers. The workers today are basically much better educated and able to speak for themselves in negotiations with industries. Conditions are so much improved from what the early 20th century worker encountered at his workplace that they are rarely a factor in employer/employee bargaining.
Today the emphasis is on what has always been on the front burner of all negotiations, more money! And, more time off, and less daily work hours, and promotions based solely on length of employment as opposed to qualifications for the job and various and sundry other “feel good” types of benefits.
The current crop of unions have jumped in to take advantage of these workers’ desires and have made them pay off for themselves along the way by skimming the dues charged to the worker members for their own high standards of living and compensations. Every blessed gain that the unions are successful at securing in the name of their membership has an accompanying benefit to the union bosses.
These positions have become so lucrative to the holders that they go to extreme lengths to remain in place for eternity if possible. Getting excessively exorbitant compensation for little on no actual physical work is a hallmark of union leadership.
But there are even greater benefits that recent times have brought when the union bosses realized that by skimming their members’ dues just a little bit more each pay period, they could build a nest egg to donate to political persons and causes and gain an additional perk: POWER; whether the membership approves or not.
Today, they are in a position where they can dictate to Presidents as to what they want done and as our current occupant is learning, they had better get it or the support is withdrawn.
The one failing point in all this chicanery by labor union management is that they can only control ONE party at a time. In that they have been more strongly supportive of Democratic causes and persons over the years, Republicans are left out of the distribution of the workers’ dues monies.
This will at some point in time jump up and bite them on their posteriors – BADLY!
This is the year for it. I can’t wait.
Hamas’ 54 Democratic Congressmen
By Daniel Greenfield January 27, 2010
[A must-read article about Hamas, CAIR, Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, Free Gaza, the Muslim Brotherhood and how they have infiltrated Congress}
Of the top 11 CAIR moneygetters in congress, Nick Rahall, James Moran, Darrel Issa, John Conyers, Dennis Kucinich, Jesse Jackson, Jr, John Dingell, Barbara Lee, Carolyn Kilpatrick, Shelia Jackson Lee and Jim McDerrmott—7 out of 11 [including Michigan's John Conyers, John Dingell, and Carolyn Kilpatrick] signed on to Ellison’s letter. That makes the Gaza letter a CAIR project. 5 on that list [including Conyers, Dimgell, and Kilpatrick] voted against condemning attacks on Israel.
Obama fighting ‘Alice in Wonderland’ terrorism war, says Sen. Lieberman
Senators on both sides of the aisle are critical of President Barack Obama’s decision
By Jim Kouri January 27, 2010
Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, accused the Obama Administration of an “Alice in Wonderland” approach to the nation’s anti-terrorism strategy.
Lieberman and other senators on both sides of the aisle are critical of President Barack Obama’s decision to try terrorists in civilian court in New York City as well as the Obama Justice Department decision to process the so-called “Underwear Bomber” captured on Christmas Day in the civilian criminal justice system.
Lieberman urged the Administration Monday to move Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from civilian to military custody because “he is an enemy combatant and should be detained, interrogated and ultimately charged as such.”
“Though the President has said repeatedly that we are at war, it does not appear to us that the President’s words are reflected in the actions of some in the Executive branch, including some at the Department of Justice, responsible for fighting that war. The unilateral decision by the Department of Justice to treat Abdulmutallab – a belligerent fighting for and trained by an al-Qaeda franchised organization – as a criminal rather than a UEB and to forego information that may have been extremely helpful to winning this war demonstrates that very point,” Lieberman wrote in his letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
Holder’s decision to prosecute murderous, fanatical terrorists—including the 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed—in civilian courts continues to infuriate many Americans, but to no avail.
Obama tries to take credit for success in Iraq despite opposition to troop surge
Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization took offense last night as President Obama tried to take credit for the success of the Iraq War when he was a bitter opponent of the successful troop surge implemented by President George W. Bush. Obama proclaimed “I promised I would end this war, and that is what I am doing as President. “
Big Head Of The Day
By Bob Parks Monday, January 25, 2010
Rep. Marion Berry’s parting shot, published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette offers a warning to moderate Democrats and border state moderates — warning of a midterm bloodbath comparable to the 54-seat D-to-R swing in 1994.
“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all,” Berry said. “They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ ”
