When Liberals Dream

Nuking Politics

Liberals apparently live in a dream world where the nature of things is formed, not by reality or experience, but by their wishes, by their fantasies. The statists elected by these people encourage those fantasies. They talk about things like "fairness" and foster the belief that, no matter what the problem is, the State is the answer. They have sold liberals the idea that personal liberty, the right to direct your own fortunes, is the cause of the problems, and the only solution is obeisance to the State. It's a lie that gets more and more convoluted as it continually bumps into reality. It's all carefully constructed to obscure their real purpose, which is, of course, complete control.

Liberals ignore the dissonance, and dream on.

Get In My Belly!

Is White House Preparing for the Inevitable?

As the president flies off to Asia, the White House quietly put in place one of the top defense attorneys in the country to be Obama’s new White House Counsel.  

While the media has noted Neil Eggleston’s newly elevated position inside of the Obama White House, what little coverage there has been ignores the fact that Eggleston has made his living, and his name, by defending those involved in serious political scandal.

I’ll repeat that for emphasis – Neil Eggleston defends those involved in serious political scandal, and now he has been made Barack Obama’s White House Counsel.

Eggleston was part of the Clinton administration defense during the Whitewater scandal, as well as two subsequent executive privilege battles. He also worked with the Bush administration in 2007 during yet another executive privilege dispute. And perhaps more important to the direct link to Barack Obama himself, Neil Eggleston was the one who provided current Chicago Mayor, and former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, legal defense during the infamous Rod Blagojevich trial that included a myriad of pay to play allegations that eventually resulted in the former Illinois governor being sent to jail, while Rahm Emanuel emerged relatively unscathed.

Eggleston’s current placement in the Obama White House is a clear signal by the administration that it is preparing for battle should Republicans win back the Senate following the November 2014 Elections, and for the first time, face the prospect of REAL congressional investigations into administration wrongdoing.

Neil Eggleston is not a political legal wonk. He is, first and foremost, a man who is called to protect politicians and/or administrations who find themselves in serious legal difficulties.

Wise Latina?

"Justice Sotomayor argues explicitly that Michigan’s voters would have been within their rights to, for example, lobby university authorities to adopt race-neutral admissions standards but that by adopting a constitutional amendment insisting on race neutrality, thereby transferring the decision from the education bureaucrats to the people themselves and their constitution, they 'changed the rules in the middle of the game.' 
Her opinion is legally illiterate and logically indefensible, and the still-young career of this self-described 'wise Latina' on the Supreme Court already offers a case study in the moral and legal corrosion that inevitably results from elevating ethnic-identity politics over the law. 
Justice Sotomayor has revealed herself as a naked and bare-knuckled political activist with barely even a pretense of attending to the law, and the years she has left to subvert the law will be a generation-long reminder of the violence the Obama administration has done to our constitutional order.
"The Court came to the right decision, but its fractured conclusions and the rigorous political activism of its left wing are alarming." National Review

One More Reason to Look Toward 2014 & 2016

With one-third of the Supreme Court with one foot in the grave, and the long term results of Affirmative Action now running the country, the next two elections are as important to this country as ever.
"It ought to be possible, in short, for every American to enjoy the privileges of being American without regard to his race or his color… 
As I have said before, not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or an equal motivation, but they should have the equal right to develop their talent and their ability and their motivation, to make something of themselves. - John Marshall Harlan, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court 1963
You need only read a summation of Justice Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, (starts on pg.51) where she piles one bad and misleading argument on another, to understand that liberalism is now in a position of insisting that subverting equal protection of the law is actually upholding it.  

Happy Lenin’s Birthday

For those of you coming in late to the party, Earth Day” is on Lenin’s Birthday. Not a coincidence, given that the “founder” of Earth Day was much more a “Watermelon” than an actual environmentalist. Watermelon: Thin layer of green of the outside, red to the core.

Let’s review the predictions from the very first so called “Earth Day” back in 1970.

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — George Wald, Harvard Biologist
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” — Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day
“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” — Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University
“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….” — Life Magazine, January 1970
“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
Ok, Ehrlich was sorta right on this, if you restrict his predictions to modern Communist China, where they are showing the typical communist/socialist contempt for the environment.
“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
Now we get to my personal favorite, although probably not Al Gore‘s…
“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years,” he declared. “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist.... 
No one was survived this planet longer then 122 years!

Squirming in Their Own Pile of Poo

 More Woes For Democrats This Fall
Western Journalism
"According to the left leaning Brookings Institute, Common Core is turning into a serious problem Democrats will have to deal with during this coming election cycle.
The socialist’s dream program has ignited a growing backlash from furious parents who don’t want their children exposed to Common Core because it is inefficient at best and inappropriately loaded with sexual content at worst. Given that Common Core has been adopted in forty five states, it will be difficult for most of those who have supported it to dodge responsibility for the mess they have created.

"Sizing the situation up, a Brookings spokesman has commented: 
Those populist candidates are running against the Common Core, and they are going to say Washington is interfering with children’s schooling.
Speaking in agreement, a right leaning expert said: 
“Common Core opposition is so completely grassroots, and support is so astroturf it is already becoming a primary and general election issue in everything from local school board races to gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races..” 
"The issue is “huge among mothers."
Since it will be difficult for Democrats to separate themselves from the teachers’ unions across the country that are the main proponents of the program, they will get the brunt of the coming backlash. Republicans need only say they have always opposed Common Core, or they now oppose it after seeing what it actually includes. Their Democrat opponents will be forced into either agreeing to tear it down and breaking with teachers’ unions, or continuing to support another program voters have come to hate."

Increasing Democratic Rhetoric and Voter Turnout:

"Democratic rhetoric is becoming ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.  
What is going on? Increasingly, journalists who cover the White House are concluding that the smears are part of a conscious strategy to distract voters from Obamacare, the sluggish economy, and foreign-policy reverses; the attacks are intended, the thinking goes, to drive up resentment and hence turnout among the Democratic base.
Major Garrett, the CBS White House correspondent, has talked with White House aides who confirm that the administration is working from the theory of 'stray voltage,' as developed by former White House senior adviser David Plouffe. 'The theory goes like this,' Garrett wrote. 'Controversy sparks attention, attention provokes conversation, and conversation embeds previously unknown or marginalized ideas in the public consciousness.' ...
The White House, of course, denies that deliberate deception is its strategy. But they’ve been caught too often in the web of their own cynicism." -  John Fund, National Review
