The Empire Strikes Back

Well, it's not a reason to wish for a political defeat in November. The time is right to through the bums out no matter what the consequences. However we are reading more and more that a popular revolt, and a power shift in the House and/or Senate could mean that we witness an episode that might be called "The Empire Strikes Back".

More than a few people have predicted the possibility of a lame duck congress heading home for good would have nothing left to loose, and in good old fashion Chicago Style Pay-To-Play vote selling.

The Obama-Pelosi Lame Duck Strategy
party leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to muscle through bills in December they don't want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.
Then there is pork. A Senate aide told me that "some of the biggest porkers on both sides of the aisle are leaving office this year, and a lame-duck session would be their last hurrah for spending." 
Beware the lame duck
Leading Democrats are already considering this as a way to achieve even more liberal measures that many of their members dare not even talk about, let alone enact, on the eve of an election in which they face a widespread popular backlash to the already enacted elements of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda.
Obama's follow-on reforms are dead. Except for the fact that a lame-duck session, freezing in place the lopsided Democratic majorities of November 2008, would be populated by dozens of Democratic members who had lost reelection (in addition to those retiring). They could then vote for anything -- including measures they today shun as the midterms approach and their seats are threatened -- because they would have nothing to lose. 
This would be the political version of an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).  And we know they can be deadly yet effective.

NAACP is a racist organization

The definition of racism is making a decision or forming an opinion based on the color of someones skin.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has racist intent built into their name. They are in favor of advancing certain people based on the color of their skin!

And now, this organization has moved beyond their race based agenda and they have become nothing more than a shill for the democratic party.  The reality is that this race based political action committee is nothing more than an Uncle Tom race affinity political action committee.

NAACP blasts 'racism' in Tea Party

The historical perspective here is littered with irony and upside down world spin.  I commented a while back on the irony of Harry Reid's perverse jab at being on the wrong side of the vote with issues like slavery.

Making (up) History......

Historically speaking it was the Southern Democrats who fought the Civil War in an attempt to prevent the emancipation of slaves. It was the Republicans who executed the war that eventually won black people their freedom. And honestly, not much has changed. The democrats are still selling their version of share cropping in order to keep black people down on the farm by incentivising them into poverty with entitlements and hand outs.

I wonder if the NAACP showed any video on that big screen behind the podium that made their charges of racism evident? My wish would have been for them to show the video of the two white SEIU union thugs beating up a black guy because he was protesting with the Tea Party.

If the NAACP is worried about organizations that tolerate racism, they should look into the mirror.

Obama, and the Spies who love him

My antennae went up the moment this starry broke. Having a Russian spy ring busted up and hauled in a mere day after a high level meeting with Vladimir Putin's messenger boy, Medvedev, was just too much to let lie as coincidence.

I wrote about it right away knowing there was something very deep going on here.

To Russia with Love

From the beginning this felt like an Obama overture to ingratiate himself to the Russians.  This ideologue actually believes that kind gestures to evil people will yield positive results.  You can't fault him for not being a true believer, however naive that may be.

And now the evidence piles up.

US began deliberating spy swap well before arrests
The White House began deliberating a spy swap with Moscow nearly a month ago
In the course of the following negotiations with Moscow, the United States put forward the names of the four people who were released by Russia on Friday as their part of the bargain
Four people? What four people? It is interesting that the names and profiles have not yet been released.  What a deal!  Obama confesses, and then cleans up some massive loose ends that the new KGB left for us. Loose ends that could have been played, turned, or designated for misinformation at an important moment. You just don't hand over assets like this. Especially for 4 people the nation has never heard of!
the official said, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the White House.
Reporters?!?!?!?  You mean someone held an anonymous press conference? Usually leaks happen in one on one situations where anonymity can easily be granted. Here we have state-run-media colluding with an orchestrated intelligence leak and pretending like it's an unknown source. White House ground rules?  I have been calling the main-stream-media the state-run-media for over a year. Now you have the proof.
The U.S. government has declared itself pleased with the outcome, saying it got everything it wanted out of the case.
Yip. Nothing to see here. President Obama has offered up yet another gift at the feet of Vladimir Putin, and what did he get in return?
