Completely missed amid the agonizing cries of human misery in Egypt is that the ending of a United Nations fairytale is being written. The bum’s rush for President Hosni Mubarak has now gone global and from out of nowhere the Muslim Brotherhood-endorsed Mohamed El Bardei has arrived on the protest scene. El Baradei’s got the Nobel Peace Prize. All he’s really missing is the white horse.
Egypt will be turned over to radical Islam leadership. And it would never have happened without President Barack Obama, who first ran the white flag flying over America up the flagpole—without the permission or knowledge of the American people—on April 6, 2010.
Obama Loses the Middle East
By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
It’s no coincidence that major revolutions against Western backed governments have occurred under weak American presidents. The Iranian revolution against the Shah happened on Jimmy Carter’s watch. The current violence in Tunisia and Egypt is taking place under Obama. And the timing is quite interesting. Revolts which coincided with a new opposition congress almost suggest that they were scheduled for a time when Obama would be at his politically weakest.
The Nanny Staters at Life’s Dangerous Intersections
By Selwyn Duke Full Story
Increasingly, our government reminds me of a certain old Star Trek episode. It was titled “I, Mudd,” and in it the Enterprise explorers found themselves in the grip of seemingly perfect androids determined to serve man. The automatons informed the crew that humans were “self-destructive,” needed their “help” and couldn’t be trusted with freedom. One of the mechanical masters concluded by telling Captain Kirk, “we shall serve them [humans] and you will be happy…and controlled.”

Mascots of the Self-Congratulatory Elites
Dr. Victor Davis Hanson’s quietly chilling article, “Two Californias,” in National Review Online, ought to be read by every American who is concerned about where this country is headed. California is leading the way, but what is happening in California is happening elsewhere– and is a slow poison that is being largely ignored.
Professor Hanson grew up on a farm in California’s predominantly agricultural Central Valley. Now, as he tours that area, many years later, he finds a world as foreign to the world he knew as it is from the rest of California today– and very different from the rest of America, either past or present.
In Hanson’s own words: “Many of the rural trailer-house compounds I saw appear to the naked eye no different from what I have seen in the Third World. There is a Caribbean look to the junked cars, electric wires crossing between various outbuildings, plastic tarps substituting for replacement shingles, lean-tos cobbled together as auxiliary housing, pit bulls unleashed, and geese, goats, and chickens roaming around the yards.”
This is a Third World culture, transplanted from Mexico, and living largely outside the scope of American law, state or federal.
Ironically, this is happening in a state notorious for its pervasive and intrusive regulation of the minute details of people’s lives, homes, and businesses. But not out in the Third World enclaves in the Central Valley, where garbage is strewn with impunity and unlicensed swarms of peddlers come and go, selling for cash and with no sales tax.
While waiting in line at two supermarkets, Victor Davis Hanson realized in both places that he was the only one in line who was not paying with the plastic cards issued by welfare authorities to replace the old food stamps. He noted that these people living on the taxpayers were driving late-model cars and had iPhones, BlackBerries and other parts of what he calls “the technological veneer of the middle class.”
Sadly– and, in the long run, tragically– this is not unique to California, or to illegal immigrants from Mexico, or even to the United States. It is a pattern to which the Western world has been slowly but steadily succumbing.
In France, for example, there are enclaves of Third World Muslims, living by their own rules and festering with resentments of the society that is content to let them vegetate on handouts from the welfare state.
The black ghettos of America, and especially their housing projects, are other enclaves of people largely abandoned to their own lawless and violent lives, their children warehoused in schools where they are allowed to run wild, with education being more or less optional.
What is going on? These and other groups, here and abroad, are treated as mascots of the self-congratulatory elites.
These elites are able to indulge themselves in non-judgmental permissiveness toward those selected as mascots, while cracking down with heavy-handed, nanny-state control on others.
The effect of all this on the mascots themselves is not a big concern of the elites. Mascots symbolize something for others. The actual fate of the mascots themselves seldom matters much to their supposed benefactors.
So long as the elites have control of the public purse, they can subsidize self-destructive behavior on the part of the mascots. And so long as the elites can send their own children to private schools, they needn’t worry about what happens to the children of the mascots in the public schools.
Other people who cannot afford to send their children to private schools can simply be called “racists” for objecting to what the indulgence of the mascots is doing to the public schools or what the violence of the mascots is doing to other children trapped in the same schools with them.
A hundred years ago, groups who are now indulged as mascots were targets and scapegoats of Progressive era elites, treated like dirt and targeted for eradication in the name of “eugenics.”
There are no permanent mascots. As fashions change, the mascots of today can become the scapegoats and targets of tomorrow. But who thinks ahead any more?

We just can’t afford Obama any longer
By Jerry McConnell Friday, January 28, 2011
On Tuesday, January 25, 2011 our usurper president, Barack Hussein (Soetoro) Obama, son of a foreign national father and an under age American mother, gave a State of the Union (SOTU) address to the country.
It was more notable for the fact that he began to try to appear as though he was once again looking to provide some “CHANGE that you can believe in” as he did on the campaign trail in 2008. The catch this time is that the CHANGE was now projected to appear that he would be moving away from the CHANGE he that he wanted to bring in 2008.
The CHANGE this time would be that the earlier promised CHANGE didn’t CHANGE much of anything for the better; in fact, that CHANGE only CHANGED things in this country for a worse CHANGE. So this time he promises CHANGE to things that, like he said about the CHANGE in 2008, will make things better. Funny thing is though, there really is no CHANGE except for the way that he says it.
Check out this CHANGE that he promises to make: Obama says he will freeze discretionary spending for five years. That is CHANGE that remains the same; is that CHANGE? Does he think we are as stupid as he is? And yes, that includes you Obama robots that suck up his banalities in sickly supplication, unless you are one of the few who pay taxes in which case you get stung even deeper but are too numb to notice.
While it may sound encouraging to hear him say that spending will not increase, it is still disastrous if the alternative is to continue to spend just as much as has gotten this country into one hell of a mess financially.
To freeze spending merely means that you will keep it at the same level. In other words, after two years of wildly insane spending that increased our debt by TRILLIONS of dollars, Obama says he won’t increase that spending, but freeze it at that same level; and for FIVE YEARS. Can you imagine how many more TRILLIONS will be added to the national debt if he spends at the same level for five more years?
All of America has seen and-or heard that the Congressional Budget Office reported the day after the SOTU a new estimate prediction for this year of a new record of $1.5 TRILLION. No wonder the liberal Democrats want to increase the national debt ceiling; it must be terribly embarrassing to them and their president to say they will not increase spending, but there is also no mention of any reductions in spending either.
NewsMax.com writers Jim Myers and Ashley Martella on Jan. 26, 2011 stated that “Press reports show that, during his speech, Obama mentioned far more areas where he would spend than where he would cut. Commenting on that, Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the Republican Study Committee says: “. I don’t think he understands how serious the situation is. I don’t think he understands what took place on November 2.”
“The Republican Study Committee is a caucus of 175 conservative House Republicans. Jordan and the committee on Jan. 20 unveiled the Spending Reduction Act of 2011, which would cut $2.5 trillion in spending over 10 years.”
This sort of rhetoric regarding cuts in spending are exactly the kind of CHANGE that Obama does NOT have in mind, but he is going to have to CHANGE his mind because that is the only kind of CHANGE that this country can tolerate.
Something has to be done with that man’s thinking. WE JUST CAN’T AFFORD HIM ANY LONGER.
I know one thing that WE the responsible conservative citizens of these United States must CHANGE and that is the man in the Oval Office in 2012 or sooner if possible.
