Iran Should Not Have Been Partisan Enactment

 

The Iran Nuclear Treaty has reached its inevitable conclusion. There was a hint of excitement after Chuck Schumer announced he would vote against the Iran Nuclear Treaty and then the let-down as he then announced he would not be lobbying against the bill leaving all pressures on the Democrat side to emanate from the White House. So, this is a non-partisan act, turning a process on its head by claiming that the Iranian Nuclear Treaty was not to be introduced to the Senate for ratification because Emperor Obama did not feel like he had to submit his imperial decrees to the Congress as he was in his last two years and did not need to submit to such banal courtesies. So here we are just as it was for the Universal Healthcare Imperial Decree, we have the Imperial Iranian Nuclear Treaty which the President, oops, sorry, Emperor decreed that in order to prevent him from simply making a decree, the Congress would need to pass legislation blocking his decree which the Emperor would veto and if the Congress would manage for both Houses to override the Veto he would probably have ignored them and continued on down the Road to Perdition. So as the Imperial President has intimidated sufficient members of his Democrat Party to vote as he has decreed; they should, if they know what’s good for them and do not wish for his decree to send them to the Western Front or the Hinterlands to rot in political obscurity no longer mentionable in polite conversation, the Iran Nuclear Treaty will be passed and all aid necessary or even remotely possible will be granted to Iran as they are escorted to a nuclear weapons giant among nations.

 

Just like Obamacare we now also have Obama Nuclearized Iran which will lord over the Middle East and once they have neutralized the United States, likely to be performed after the next election but before Inauguration Day for tactical reasons, they will move across Europe and North Africa and from there South America and eventually Russia and China. So, get your prayer rugs cleaned and start practicing the Five Pillars of Islam if you plan on avoiding the reeducation camps. Men, stop shaving and women, well, I’m not sure what advice to give there. No, don’t worry. This is something to be celebrated. Emperor Obama has wanted to reach out to the Iranian leadership and grant them universal acceptance. If only he had gotten his priorities right. I am willing to bet, even if I lose, that President Obama was told he would get universal acclaim if he managed to increase the United States universal acceptance in the world over and prevent the Iranian leadership from acquiring a successful nuclear program; Emperor Obama got confused and forced Universal Healthcare on America and granted the Iran leadership the necessary acceptance and trust needed to complete their nuclear program. That has to be what has happened because the only other option is that President Obama intentionally destroyed the greatest healthcare system in the world and made becoming a physician no longer a desirable path and blessed Iran with a path to nuclear weapons with the full protection of the United States which would pull all military assets a safe distance from Iran to assure they could proceed unobstructed to build a nuclear stockpile of weapons and deliverable ICBMs so they could share their newly built warheads.

 

I had originally told friends and others something which cost me some of those friends as they claimed I was the worst kind of hater, a racist. I had claimed that President Obama was going to be Jimmy Carter on steroids. I must admit I only got it half right. I should have included that he was Jimmy Carter on steroids on domestic policy and had really outdone President Carter in foreign policy by such a degree as to qualify for Neville Chamberlin on foreign policy and preventing the next World War. I am disheartened to see that politics in the once great nation of the United States has been reduced to partisan warfare where there can never be any compromises and everything is run by the most extreme ideologues. This is the place the United States has sunk, that the Party comes before the safety and rationality does not count when Party loyalty is placed as the reason for political votes.

 

 

I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!

I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!

 

 

There is nothing much to add. The world has spiraled beyond control and entered the Twilight Zone and we have all gone through the foggy haze into a new Bizarro World where everything is upside down. I’m half expecting a rabbit running on its hind legs wearing a vest to run past me, stop and pull out his pocket watch, look at me and exclaim, “I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!” and to then disappear down the rabbit hole. What is worse is I think we have all followed that wonderful fuzzball down that hole and things are only going to get further from what many of us have thought of as reality from here on until the entire house of cards collapses in on us. Good luck my friends and be careful out there, it has gotten very strange and dangerous with sanity at historically low levels, especially in Washington, a place known for having a dearth for sanity and now it has an excess of insanity. Where have we voted ourselves and when will this ride slowly grind to a halt so we can get off? More fun and games right here for tomorrow.

Update Update Update:

 

On our article Neutered IDF Lost Control of Soldier to Leftist Instigated Clash where we chose two frames from the video from the entire confrontation as provided by the provocateurs’ video and in first picture circled and second pointed him out with an arrow describing him as “wearing a blue-grey T-shirt, baseball cap and with a large backpack strapped on his back” and lo and behold, this person we suspected was suspicious and there was something troubling about his presence turns out is so much more. Here is the picture below from an article about “our friend” from Arutz Sheva titled ‘Don’t Fire the Teacher – Jail Him’ which has the teacher circled in their picture which was likely from IDF stock as they had a photographer on scene to validate claims and to be able to prove actions taken were ‘kosher’. Here is their picture.

Well, I guess we got lucky and he was a person of particular interest, a suspect you might even say.

This Election We Have a Real Choice

Many pundits have aptly described Obama’s campaign for the Presidency last election as a fill in the blank campaign. Candidate Obama never spoke of a definitive or explicit policy or idea he planned to pursue and instead simply expounded on the slogan of “Hope and Change”, which allowed each individual to define those terms as they pleased. This was the perfect campaign for a total unknown as it allowed each person to define Obama as the person best suited to match their desires. After almost a full term, we the people have a better idea what it is that President Obama aims to do and we can now define what exactly “Hope and Change” mean and how President Obama intends to “fundamentally change America” should we vote him a second term. This means that should President Obama win a second term, those who have claimed they were fooled by his “Hope and Change” message and who thought he meant something completely different when he stood for “fundamental change in America” no longer have the luxury of claiming ignorance. This time around, Barack Obama will be running on his record no matter how much he wishes to blame Congress as not cooperating as we have seen first-hand the real Barack Obama.

But that leaves us with the question of who is Mitt Romney and what does he stand for? Obviously, it is not enough to know that Mitt Romney is a wealthy person who saved the Salt Lake City Olympics and was on the board of a venture capital company, Bain Capital. We need to know what Mitt Romney’s political lineage is. We know he was once the Governor of Massachusetts and that he had some very liberal beliefs and actions. His term began in January of 2003 and ended in December of 2006 as he did not gain reelection. There are those who would claim that Mitt Romney failing to be reelected as Governor of Massachusetts is actually a recommendation just like his having actually ever won that office should count against him. Candidate Romney this time around claims that he has matured, aged, and become wise and much more conservative in the years since serving as governor. He has given a turning point for his transformation from “pro-choice” to becoming “pro-life” and has said that much of what he claimed when politicking in Massachusetts was somewhat complex where much was said with consideration of the realities of the liberal leanings of the state of Massachusetts, and not all these positions are his personal beliefs. Anyway, the Mitt Romney we have today is not the same Mitt Romney who ran for Governor of Massachusetts and a President Romney will not be like the Governor Mitt Romney. These excuses and claims have many true conservatives very nervous. Yet, they are also fully cognizant that if not Mitt Romney, they will have a second term of Barack Obama. This likely scares them even more than does the idea of a President Romney. Still, it appears that many hard core conservatives are going to need some real and solid convincing before they will be comfortable with voting for a President Romney.

This presents a peculiar picture of the coming election. We have the Democrat candidate being an incumbent President Obama who in many ways has let down the most fanatical of his supporters and base by not producing an agenda as stridently socialist as they expected. Yet, President Obama also has been perceived as possibly too far left which has made many centrist and swing voters nervous about supporting him for a second term as they fear he would swing off scale leftward since he would not be facing another election in 2016. On the Republican side we have the most conservative members and many in the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party not fully satisfied that Romney is the man who will rope in the government and return the government to within their strict Constitutional boundaries. Then there are the pro-life people in the Republican Party who must wonder which Mitt Romney will take the White House, the pro-life Mitt of the present campaign or the “I will do nothing to change Massachusetts law concerning “Roe vs. Wade” Governor Romney. So Mitt Romney also has the extreme wing of his base less than one-hundred-percent convinced he’s their man. This is the crucial stress point of this election.

The winner of this election is not necessarily the one who wins the most “swing” or middle of the road votes; it will be who gets their base excited and to the polls. The swing voters are most likely going to split at most sixty-forty and more likely fifty-fifty leaving the election to be decided by percentage of base support that make it to the polls. This election will not be won by who moves the furthest to the center but by who goes furthest from the center and really excites their radical wing of the base. In the Democrat and Republican Parties there exist approximately thirty percent of their voters sitting at the extreme polar opposite ends of the political spectrum. For the Democrats these are the socialist progressives and for the Republicans these are the constitutionalists, individualists, and Tea Party members. Neither candidate, Mitt Romney or Barack Obama need worry about those single-issue voters as they have those locked up even before the Primary Elections began. The Democrat candidate is guaranteed the pro-choice vote, the gun control vote, the ecologist vote (though some may be reluctant or choose third party), the affirmative action vote, and on and on down a litany of leftist pet causes; while the Republican candidate is guaranteed the pro-life vote (though some may be reluctant or choose third party), the pro Second Amendments vote, the anti-tax vote, pro-business vote, and on and on down a litany of rightist pet causes. What is going to matter is the percentage of these voters they can give sufficient reason to actually go and vote. Right now it would appear that President Obama is winning this part of the campaign for President and Mitt Romney still has a hard hill to climb to secure these voters.

Meanwhile, look to the press to constantly keep asking questions about which candidate is moving to the center and which one has caught the heart of the independent voters. This is a ruse which the Democrats know to ignore and to continue playing to their base by keeping their campaign left oriented. If the Republicans prove true to form, we can expect Mitt Romney’s campaign to move towards the center after the Party Conventions just as was the case with Bob Dole, George W. Bush (though he was castigated as far right by the media which actually may have helped his campaign), and most recently with John McCain. This was especially true of Senator McCain where his move to the center was so complete that he had campaign staff almost literally gagging his Vice Presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, so as to prevent her seriously conservative message from ruining his campaign which was aiming for the center of the political spectrum.

So, what should we be looking for as Election Day nears and the polls will likely all be within the margin of error? The first thing is to ignore ninety-percent of what you hear from the mainstream press. Look for internal polls which show the level of expected voters who say they will definitely be voting when they are asking those who make up the Party’s base. Whoever appears to be getting out their base most efficiently will likely be the winner. We can pretty much ignore the polls of all eligible voters as that is just some nonsense thrown out to try and add another dimension to the coverage though all know full well that these polls are next to meaningless. The most important polls for President Obama and Mitt Romney will be the under thirty voters and the over fifty voters, simply the numbers who plan to vote in both cases, and whichever poll indicates that more total people, that is total people and not merely percentage, will determine the winner of the election. So, our prediction is this, whichever candidate gets the most votes from the combination of voters under thirty and those over fifty will be the winner of the election. We fully expect that the voters between the ages of thirty and fifty to pretty much split right down the middle within a margin of plus or minus four percent which will leave the voters at the age extremes in control of the electoral decision. Of course, there are many events such as a Middle East War, the blockading of the Straits of Hormuz driving gasoline prices through the roof, or a myriad of other surprises which could drastically change everything and you can bet we will get right on any such event, well, within a few days of the event as we tend to react somewhat slowly at times. But rest assured, we will be sure to predict a winner before Christmas.
